Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - March 25, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Men., Mar. 25, 1974 Iowa, Tourist States Vie for Gas By Randy Minkoff DES MOINES One of Gov. Robert D. Ray's top en- ergy advisers said today Iowa will be in direct competition with "vacation" states for in- creased gasoline allocations in upcoming months. State Geologist Sam Tuthill Indicated that the Federal En- ergy Office (FEO) would make the final determination on whether Iowa's gasoline alloca- tion will receive similar upward adjustments as was the case in March. Tuthill said he was optimistic that Iowa's "case" would be "heard" by the FEO, and that the state would be able to obtain adequate levels of gasoline throughout the summer months. Pledge Is Key He said the key was the Nixon administration's pledge that ag riculture would continue to be a Sam Tuthill top priority in fuel allocations and that Iowa would not be left "short." 'However, I must say we are in competition with states like Wyoming, Colorado and Utah for Tuthill said, Tuthill praised the work of Hay in "putting forth Iowa's case" in obtaining gasoline supplies up to this point, and expressed confidence that "the FEO will continue to pay heed to our situation." He said the average Iowa mo- torist will have to "continue to pull his belt" in because of increased fuel needs by state's farmers to plant crops in the spring. However, Tuthill said Iowa's conservation effort, which he labels as one of the best in the nation, has enabled the state to avoid the long lines at gasoline stations and the implementation of rationing plans, such as the so-called "Oregon plan." He said if the conservation ef- forts continue and the FEO con- tinues to grant Iowa its 89 per- cent level of allocation as was granted in March, the situation will remain stable and the state will not have to go to any modi fied rationing plans. Outlook a 'Gamble' Tuthill, however, warned that much of the entire gasoline availability outlook is resting on a "gamble" by the FEO and White House Energy Chief Wil- liam Simon. 'In effect, when we we're granted our 89 percent alloca- tion in March, these supplies came out of. inventories thai were pegged for future Tuthill said. "Simon was in effect, borrowing from tomorrow to pay today and tak ing a calculated risk." Tuthill said Simon was banking on the end to the Arab oil embargo and con- tinued conservation efforts to avoid running the nation into a severe gasoline shortage. "We're confident the gamble will pay Tuthill said. "I! the gamble is wrong we won'l have a catastrophe by any means, but we certainly will have to drive less and pull our belts in even further than we are doing at the present time." Some Attorneys Balk at Client Security Fund By Harrison Weber Iowa Dally Press Assn. 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 cluded tot the client security fund does not apply to federal judges and has requested and received oj re- tirement' from the Iowa su- preme court. Appointment to the federal bench is a lifetime appoint- ment, 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 annual -assessment made on judges and those performing services for a gov- ernmental-unit. They are U.S. Circuit Judge Roy Stephenson, Des Moines, and District Judge William Hanson, Fort Dodge and William Stuart, Chariton. Annually At the outset, attorneys in general practice must contrib- ute annually to tlie fund. The question of Iowa law- yers employed by the federal government participating in the plan was raised intitially by Alan Kirshen as assistant U.S. district attorney hi the Northern District of Iowa. Kirshen has informed the Iowa supreme court that he has received approval from the U.S. Department of Jus- tice for "vigorous opposition" to the fund as it applies to fed- eral 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 attor- neys who represent them. he said, "attor- neys 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. Kirshen said, "there is simply no way that .client security can enhanced by forcing govern-' ment attorneys-to make dona- tions to a fund' from which they cannot derive benefit, in the sense that private attoiv neys benefit from having their clients protected by the fund." Due Process? In addition, Kirshen ques- tioned whether the plan de- prives 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 proce- dural safeguards.-" In response, John H. Nei- man, Des Moines Lawyer who is chairman of the Supreme Court's Client Security and At- torney Disciplinary Commis- sion, said the Iowa supreme court is supported by the courts of many states in its decision and a decision of the Harrison Weber U.S. supreme court. "It is ab- solutely clear that a state su- preme court has a very broad discretion so far as the regu- lation of attorneys is con- cerned." Neiman, in a letter to Kir- shen, 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 gov- ernment working within the state to pay any assessment under the fund."

Her f irsl job will be the signing ol of sewer, construction bonds approved for issuance al the council's last Monday. regular meeting 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 Ar- nold noted that the city will not have a need for a city treasur- r. Oil Spillage Part of the pollution problem of a dry run in northeast Man- chester, according to city of- ficials, was used oil spillage in back of two commercial es- tablishments in the eastern part of the city. The oil was not being emptied )roperly into pits and eventual- y found its way into the dry run according to the report. Arnold told the council that he has asked the involved property to )e more careful in their elimi- nation of the used oil.

Legislative 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 rnph! That's what many legislators are thinking today after she made her little spiel on the senate floor last week. Sen. Miller said she jfeels like she's a hazard On the highways at 55 mph because ev- erybody is'passing her at speeds 15 to 20 mph above that. Frustrated Patrol SHE expressed the thoughts of many motor ists (when 'she said the law isn't being en forced. One reason for that is that there aren't enough state troopers to enforce it. They're a frustrated lot, too, just like the mo- torists. On 1-80 it is generally Hie 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. IMPACT Sale Ends Sat. P.M.
