The suit, being tried in the University of Iowa law school building, contends the environmental impact statement filed in conjunction with the project is inadequate. Federal law requires impact statements be filed for all projects financed by federal funds. The statement is to consider environmental factors and alternatives. Environmental Statement The attorney for Citizens for Environmental Action, and the Iowa Student Public Interest Research Group (IS-PIRG) are contending the city’s environmental statement does not take min account available mass transit or aspects of the project’s financing    j The first witness tailed by j the plaintiffs was John (Skip) l^iitner, a representative of i Citizens for Environmental I Action, and has been active in 1SPIRG. Laitner contended there should have been more consideration of a multiple developer concept* as well as emphasis on mass transit. Harassment In cross examination, a city attorney termed Laitner “part of past and present harassment of this project." Laitner was accused of not having formal training in the environmental and urban planning fields The plaintiffs also called Thomas Pogue, associate professor of economics at tin* U. of I., to testify on an alleged lack of cost benefit analysis in the city’s environmental statement Pogue was admitted as an expert    witness.    The city, however, sharply attacked the qualifications of George Brown, a professional transportation consultant. The    defense    contended Brown’s expertise does not include urban transportation planning. Judge William Stewart allowed    Brown to testify, but not as an expert witness. .

To Report Drug Violation Telephone Michael Dooley 377-8081  -A. ~ WIN AT BRIDGE By Oswald k James Jacoby The old adage, “There are none so blind as they who will not see” certainly applies in bridge. East came to us with a long story about how his partner let South make an overtrick at three notrump. He described his partner’s crime as follows: “South won the spade lead in his hand and led a heart to dummy’s queen. Then he proceeded to rattle off five club tricks while my partner was obliging enough to chuck three diamonds. "Next South cashed the high spades, threw my partner in with a diamond and eventually made his tenth trick with the king of hearts ” We didn’t bother to ask East if he had contributed anything to the debacle, because he had already heard from West. It seems East had discarded two hearts and a diamond while the clubs were parading East’s first discard should have been a spade and his second discard another spade. That would have told West that he could throw spades with complete safety. As it was poor West had been afraid that South held four hearts and that he. West, just had to hang on to all his cards in that suit. The bidding has been    24 West    North    Fast    South 14    Pass    2 A Pass    3 A    Pass    44 Pass    4 4    Pass    9 You.

David Cohen, of Washington, D.C., was in Iowa this weekend to moderate a campaign debate between U.S. senate candidates Rep. John Culver (D-Iowa) and state Rep. Dave Stanley (R-Mus-catine). “Given the general decline in President Ford’s credibility, there are some very immediate reform steps that President Ford should take,” Cohen said. “They would have the salutary effect* of putting flesh on the president’s early and welcome statements on openness.” He said the first of the five steps should be an executive order requiring the logging of outside contacts by executive branch officials and the registration of lobbyists and clients involved in executive branch lobbying Cohen said the second step would be the signing of the campaign finance reform bill when it emerges from congressional conference. Cohen said the president should “issue executive orders that overhaul our classification system, strengthen the enforcement of freedom of information and place strict limits on the use of executive privilege.” The last two steps call for presidential support of legislation establishing a special prosecutor to investigate and prose*'u re public officials’ misconduct, and. a pledge to “take the appointments of justice department officials and U.S. attorneys out of partisan politics.” VISIT The Office of Dr. C.
