It acknowledged Friday that t was accepting until April 1 Mmments on whether a roll- iack should be ordered. It said i already has received "a lumber of letters or formal pe- itions" for.a rollback from indi- idual shippers and associa- ions. The surcharge was designed to help independent truckers cover the increased cost of die- sel fuel. Trucking firms regulat-, ed by the ICC that employ in- dependent operators have been permitted to file for the sur- charge on their freight rates, then pass along the amount to the person actually incurring the added cost. Rep. Joe Rinas (D Marion) disagreed, saying he believes nine percent is realistic for re- volving accounts. "1 think it would be a real mistake for Ihe legislature to set a limit of 18 percent on revolving charge Rinas said. "I'm surprised at Rob- inson said, adding that "even the most liberal" members of Ihe senate, as well as groups like the Iowa Student Public In- terest Research Group, say the limit should be at least 14 per- cent. Do What Is Fair Motion-Sickness Drug Bottles Being Sought WASHINGTON (AP) The Food and Drug Administration said Friday that it is trying to locate two bottles containing a superdose of a mo- tion-sickness drug that could jeopardize persons taking it. The bottles may contain 50- milligram pink pills of promelh- azine hydrochloride, although they are incorrectly labeled as 12.5-mg. pills, which are gray, the FDA said. The bottles, identified by the ot number 6515, were distrib- uted between last November and February. Consumers who received pink promethazine lab- els during lhat period were ad- vised to contact their doctor or druggist to determine if they arc involved in the recall. Chilean Suicide SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) Jose Toha, minister of the inte- rior and defense in the ousted Marxist government of Salvador Allende, committed suicide Fri- day. "All we want to do is what we think is fair and right and rea- sonable; we don't want to choke off the little Robinson said. Rinas said there is a signifi- cant difference between closed- end accounts and revolving ac- counts. Because of the rising costs of items like autos and appliances, considered necessities-, credit is necessary to make them avail- able to all persons, he said, and companies should be allowed a ligh enough rate to be able to offer credit. However, he called revolving accounts "a gimmick to in- crease and said tighten- ng up rates on those accounts vould not create an undue hard- ship on consumers. No Irreparable Damage "It would not do irreparable damage to our economy if we ighten those he said. Rinas drew some support rom Rep. Wally Horn, (D Cedar Rapids) who said, "I lon't want Joe to appear to .land alone in this. Several of us would like to see it around 12 o percent." Horn, said revolving accounts are a service a slore doesn'-t nave to offer. He said offering credit is a decision a business man makes for competitive rea- sons, comparing it to a decision on whether to provide clerks in a store or operate it as self-ser- vice. Voices Concern Rep. Joan Lipsky (R Cedar Rapids) said she is concerned about reports that concentrate on the interest rate controversy and ignore other sections of the bill, which she termed extreme- ly important. "I'm afraid we'll lose this bill, and get an interest-rate bill with no governmental reorganization or consumer she said. About 45 persons crowded- into the Hiawatha city council chambers for the' two-hour meeting with the legislators, which touched on a broad range of subjects. Ruling Reversed On Pierced Ears DBS MOINES (AP) The Iowa atlorney general's office has reversed an earlier opinion and says medical doctors aren't the only ones who can pierce someone's ears. Asst. Ally. Gen. Fred Haskins said Friday he was in error when he said earlier that ear- piercing falls under medical practice law which requires medical or osteopathic licensing lo perform certain procedures on the human body. Haskins said a closer review of the law reveals that ear- piercing falls outside the pur- view of medical practice laws lecause it doesn't involve "a healing purpose." State health officials asked for the opinion, noting some depart- ment stores offer free ear-picrc- ng lo purchasers of earrings For 61 years flowers for all occasions JOHN Convonfonf downtown location 345-0511 ;
