Ii. Gross (R ia.). The U.S. .senate last October approved a resolution to authorize a White House conference on library and information services, which will cost an estimated $9 6 million. However, when the legislation got to the house, Gross, long known as a fiscal watchdog, decided it was too much money to spend for such an item. “I am amazed any committee of congress would come here today asking for $10 million simply to stage a White House conference on libraries,” the veteran of 26 years in the house said. “How in the name of the I>ord can anyone spend $10 million on a White House conference.” When the resolution came up originally, it required a two-thirds majority to pass because it had not been cleared for debate. Now the proposal will be formally cleared with the house rules committee and only a simple majority will be needed for passage. 20 YEARS AGO - Rep. ll. R. Gross of Iowa was one of “IO typical Republicans” named by Life magazine as congressmen who were holding back the Eisenhower administration. French Nuclear Test Reported CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — France Monday set off the first explosion in its 1974 nuclear test series in the South Pacific, the Australian government reported. The prime ministers of Australia and New Zealand protested. The French government refused to comment. It never announces the individual tests but said earlier this month that this year’s series would be the last conducted in the atmosphere. The Austra^an government said a nuclear device was set off Monday over the Mururoa Atoll, the French test site about 1,000 miles southeast of Tahiti. Prime Minister Gough William of Australia said the new tests were a matter of deep concern to his government because they would result in radioactive fallout on Australian territory. He said the French statement that these would be the last tests in the atmosphere was a step in the right direction, but the French government has not given his government “any satisfactory commitment that further atmospheric tests will not be held.” New Zealand’s Prime Minister Norman Kirk said he had told his ambassador in Paris to file a strong protest.

The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Mon., June 17, 1974 f Anfi-CB Policy for State Troopers To Be Studied Reappointments IOWA CITY - Linda Dole, J. Erie Heintz and L. Vem Robinson have been reappointed to two-year terms as part-time judicial magistrates in Johnson county. DES MOINES (AP) - Gov. Robert Ray said Monday his office will investigate changing the policy that prohibits highway patrolmen from car-Tying citizens’ ban (CB) radios in patrol cars. Many troopers purchased the CB equipment to monitor truckers when the 55 mile-per-hour-speed law went into effect March I. Iowa department of public safety officials, however, had the radios removed because they were not state-furnished equipment. Some officials felt the patrol could not monitor the CB radios and patrol radios at the same time. Some truckers use the CB radios for tips on when the highway patrol is using radar to catch speeders. Stationary Ideations The patrol does use CB radios to monitor the truckers but they are in stationary locations such as weigh stations, and are not as useful, troopers say, as private-band equipment, if it were mobile. ‘ * I would favor them (troopers) having access to the equipment they think necessary,” Ray said. And he said he would favor having CB radios in patrol cars “under certain circumstances.” But if the troopers return to CB equipment in the cars, Ray said, it should be state-owned equipment rather than that purchased by the patrol-, men. Received Complaints The governor says his office has received complaints from citizens who feel the patrol is stopping passenger cars for breaking the new speed limit, but ignoring truckers who speed. “What the citizens don’t realize is that the CB radios have quite an effect,” Ray said. “As soon as you stop one truck, the word goes down the highway — ‘Smokey the Bear is on the loose’,” Ray said. He said the patrol is using airplanes more to cut into the CB radio problem. Youths Arrested In Burglary Case DECORAH - Rickey Kittel-son, 18, route three, Decorah, was charged by Decorah police Monday with burglary. He is accused of taking about $40 from the cash register and soft drink machine at the Hobbit Hole early last Tuesday. A 14-year-old, who also was involved in the burglary, is being referred to juvenile probation authorities, officers said. Voter Identification Push Slated by Iowa Democrats DES MOINES (AP) - Iowa Democratic candidates Sunday agreed to focus on what they sa;d are failures of Republican administrations in Washington and Des Moines instead of dwelling on Watergate during this year’s campaigns. The Democratic strategy was announced by Party Chairman ’rom Whitney following a meeting of candidates for top state Buchanan GOP Names Kibler; IOO at Session INDEPENDENCE - Art Kibler was re-elected chairman at the Buchanan county Republican convention held Friday at the Hotel Pinicon here.

Over IOO persons attended the convention at which Mrs. Pat Pardun, Independence, former vice-chairman of the state Republican central committee was keynote speaker. 26 Delegates The group elected 26 regular delegates to the state convention including two 18-year-olds and two junior delegates.

Resolutions approved by convention delegates favored retention of tho right-to-work law, support for President Nixon, find a resolution that out-of-state political contributions be prohibited in Iowa racefi. The group voted down a resolution that would have reduced the legislature to 32 representatives and 16 senators. Other Planks Other planks adopted included that money transferred from the highway fund to the general fund be retuned to the highway fund and a recommendation that a review of the highway system for Northeast Iowa be conducted. The convention also recommended that every congressman who has received illegal campaign funds or has publicly indicated Im* has prejudge! the issue should disqualify himself from voting iii any impeachment issue. and congressional offices. * At the meeting, candidates and party leaders agreed to place major emphasis on the voter identification program in an all - out effort to canvass, register and then get Iowans to the polls in November. Whitney said the Republican party “has been insensitive to the problems of the poor, the elderly, farmers and small businessmen” both nationally and in Iowa. He said Republican economic policies “have produced a run away inflation that threatens the financial stability of every Iowa family.” Those at the meeting included Sen. Dick Clark, senate Candidate John Culver, gubernatorial Candidate Jim Schaben, congressional Candidates Michae Blouin, Second district; Steve Rapp, Third district; Tom llark-in, Fifth district, and Berkley Bedell, Sixth district, as well as the Democratic slate for state offices.
