There won't he any federal unding of new road or street irojects in Cedar Rapids until a controversy is resolved con- cerning the route of 1-3110 north of the city. Howard Gunnerson, acting director of the highway commis- sion, said Monday certification of the Linn county regional jlanning commission's planning iroccss is being withheld until several aspects of a metropoli- iati transit plan have been ap- proved. "That does pote a problem unlil that's he said when asked if the Hiawatha jypass controversy was the jrincipal reason for the delay in certification. Some Exceptions Federal funding cannot be ob- tained unless the planning iroccss is certified. In the past, some exceptions have been made on a project-by-projecl basis, but Gunnerson said it is doubtful any more exceptions will be made. Only those projects which are already under way will continue to be funded until the certifi- cation is obtained, he said. Planning Director Don Salyer, who holds that position for both the city and the planning com- mission, said the highway com- mission, objections are due to ,he fact Hiawatha lias not ap- >roved an 1-380 route through .he city. Meeting Set Other cities in the region have approved plans showing both a jypass route and one through liawalha, but Hiawatha has np- iroved only a plan showing the jypass route. A meeting is scheduled Thurs- day night involving the planning commission and the city coun- cils of Cedar Rapids and Hia- watha to discuss the route con- troversy. Memorial Services Cunts, It.

Incidents The officials said some incidents of desertion falling within the scope of Ihe clemen- cy program were recorded dur- ing the Vietnam war. They said approximately 12.500 deserters arc still at large with about of them in Canada. About CGO deserters arc now serving sentences or are await ing trial. The President's proclamatior specified that cvadets or de sorters wanted on charges other than those associated v avoidance of military service might be forced lo have the other charges disposed of before clemency would be considered. "Honorable Service" For deserters, length of alter nale service would depend on "such honorable service as an individual may have rendered :rior to his absence, penalties already paid under the law, and sucli other mitigating factors as may be appropriate to seek cq- jily among those who partici- pate in this program." To be eligible for clemency, deserters would have to have commitcd their offenses be- wecn Aug. 4, 19R4, and March coal resources in Iowa. The main stumbling-block is the cheap removal of sulphur from the deposits. Taxes, the governor com- mented, have been reformed in avor of the poor and middle class without hurling the state treasury. Iowa spends less than it brings in, Ray claimed. Last year marked the largest growth in economic develop- ment in the stale's history, but the governor stressed that man- ufacturing should not overshad- ow agriculture.

"I have a feeling that in the next 24 hours a series of very difficult decisions will have to 3e taken by us." He said "a matter of special concern" was that the three ter- rorists and the hostages were getting tired and edgy. One weak light gleamed from behind a blind on the top floor of the embassy, and. a heavy mist swirled around the building from time to time. One French source said it was hoped that mist would not interfere with flying, a remark that was taken to indicate likelihood of an agreement soon lo free the hos- tages and fly the terrorists to another country.
