Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - March 25, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Mon., Mar. 25. 197 4 Iowa, Tourist States Vie for Gas By Randy Minkoff DES MOINES (UPI) - One of Gov. Robert D. Ray’s top energy advisers said today Iowa will be in direct competition with “vacation” states for increased gasoline allocations in upcoming months.

DES MOINES — Several Iowa attorneys employed by the U.S. government, either in civil service positions or in various appointed capacities, are balking at joining the client security fund created by the Iowa supreme court. The fund was established by the supreme court to protect persons who may be injured by attorney defalcations. One lawyer. Federal Judge Edward McManus, has concluded that the client security fund does not apply to federal judges and has requested and received a “certificate of retirement’ from the Iowa supreme court. Appointment to the federal bench is a lifetime appointment, and strange as it may seem, a person does not have to be licensed to practice law' to be a federal judge. The other federal judges in Iowa have gone along with the security fund; each has paid the $25 annual -assessment made on judges and those performing services for a governmental unit. They are U.S. Circuit Judge Roy Stephenson, Des Moines, and District Judge William Hanson, Fort Dodge and William Stuart, Chariton. $100 Annually At the outset, attorneys in general practice must contribute $100 annually to the fund. The question of Iowa lawyers employed by the federal government participating in the plan was raised initially by Alan Kirshen as assistant U.S. district attorney in the Northern District of Iowa. Kirshen has informed the Iowa supreme court that he has received approval from the U.S. Department of Justice for “vigorous opposition” to the fund as it applies to federal attorneys including, if necessary, litigation. The theory of the fund, he notes in correspondence to members of the court, is the protection of clients from abuses committed by attorneys who represent them. “However,” he said, “attorneys who are employed by the federal government have strictly prescribed statutory duties, and are precluded from the private practice of law by statute or regulation. “Accordingly,” Kirshen said, “there is simply no way that client security can be enhanced by forcing government attorneys to make donations to a fund from which they cannot derive benefit, in the sense that private attorneys benefit from having their clients protected by the fund.” Due Process? In addition. Kirshen ques tioned whether the plan deprives the individual lawyer of due process because the plan conditions the continued right to practice law in the state upon the completion and delivery of an annual statement, questionnaire, and the payment of assessments due, “without providing for notice, hearing or other procedural safeguards.” In response, John H. Nei-man. Des Moines Lawyer who is chairman of the Supreme Court’s Client Security and Attorney Disciplinary Commission, said the Iowa supreme court is supported by the courts of many states in its decision and a decision of the U.S. supreme court. “It is absolutely clear that a state supreme court has a very broad discretion so far as the regulation of attorneys is concerned.” Neiman, in a letter to Kirshen, said: “It seems to me that these decisions control the questions raised by you with regard to whether or not the court has any right to require attorneys employed by the federal government working within the state to pay any assessment under the fund.” —THE ANTIQUE WONDERLAND— “OPEN THURSDAY AT 11 A.M.” ANTIQUE SHOW VETERANS MEMORIAL COLISEUM AT CEDAR RAPIDS THURSDAY-FRIDAY-SATURDAY-SUNDAY DAILY ll A.M.

The triple fatality accident Saturday night killed the drivers of the two cars, Diana Wolff, 26. of Clermont and Allen Hickmann, 22, of rural Postville, and a passenger, Larry Cline, 19, of West Union. Authorities said Hickmann apparently lost control of his car on an icy curve and the auto slammed head-on into the Wolff vehicle. The accident occurred on highway 18 about two miles northeast of Clermont. A tractor accident Saturday took the life of an Osceola county farmer. Prentice Shaw, 55, of Ocheyedan was killed when he apparently lost control of his tractor and the machine overturned. Sheriff's officers said the tractor rolled over in a ditch and Shaw was crushed. The accident occurred on a county road near Allendorf. A Cedar Rapids man was killed Friday night in a two-car collision on a Cedar Rapids city street. Police said a car driven by Floyd Harris collided with another auto driven by Judith Norland, 18, also of Cedar Rapids. Miss Dorland was hospitalized in Cedar Rapids. By Mary Belle MANCHESTER - The office of city treasurer was officially reinstated by the Manchester city council at a special meeting last week on the advice of the city’s bonding attorney. Mrs. Helen M. Knutson was appointed to this position for the specific purpose of the registration and issuance of general obligation or revenue bonds by the city. She will work at the pleasure of the council. Her first job will be the signing of $250,000 of sewer construction bonds approved for issuance at the council’s regular meeting last Monday. In action at a prior meeting, council members had decided to eliminate this office, terming it unnecessary. When the home rule act goes into effect in July 1975, City Manager Garth Arnold noted that the city will not have a need for a city treasurer. Oil Spillage Part of the pollution problem of a dry run in northeast Manchester, according to city officials, was used oil spillage in back of two commercial establishments in the eastern part of the city. The oil was not being emptied properly into pits and eventually found its way into the dry run according to the report. Arnold told the council that he has asked the involved property to be more careful in their elimination of the used oil. A board of adjustment should be created for those people who have had rezoning requests denied by the planning and zoning commission, Arnold suggested to the council. No action was taken on the suggestion. Property Survey An attorney for Tony Anderson, owner of a trailer court in northeast Manchester, appeared before the council to discuss a recent survey concerning Anderson’s property. The survey disclosed that what Anderson thought was his property line included 8 feet of city property on Butler street and about 9 feet on Stiles. The attorney suggested that the city deed the land to Anderson. Action on the matter was referred to the planning and zoning commission.

Legislative Notes by Frank Nye Sen. Miller's Complaint On Speed Draws 'Hooray' DES MOINES — Hooray for Sen. Elizabeth Miller (R-Marshalltown) for telling it like it is traveling Iowa’s highways these days at 55 mph! ! That’s what many legislators are thinking today after she made her little spiel on the senate floor last week. Sen. Miller said she /eels like she’s a hazard on the highways at 55 mpli because everybody is passing her at speeds 15 to 20 mph above that. Frustrated Patrol SHE expressed the thoughts of many motorists when she said the law isn’t being enforced. One reason for that is that there aren’t enough state troopers to enforce it. They’re a frustrated lot, too, just like the motorists. On 1-80 it is generally the truckers and out-of-state motorists (mostly Illinoisans) who flaunt the 55 mph ceiling. Apparently they have a special dispensation from someone to disregard the law. NYE VALUE! Sale Ends Sat. 5:30 P.M. 9 7 OK Pnrt.M.
