Highway Patrol Wants to Spend $80,000 on CB Radios for Troopers Iowa Dally Press Ass'n. DES MOINES - The Iowa Highway Patrol wants to spend approximately $80,000 to purchase citizen band radios for each of its 430 patrol cars, a Patrol officer said Thursday. Capt. Ted Godfrey confirmed the Highway Patrol is seeking federal funds to finance the purchase. Capt. Godfrey said four sophisticated CB radios are expected to be delivered to the Patrol within two weeks for testing by troopers. When the Patrol has decided what kind of CB radio would be best for its troopers, and if the $80,000 can be obtained, bids will be taken for the purchase. A first step toward the purchase was taken when the Patrol received a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) license for 600 units. The Patrol's current policy on CB radios is that individual troopers may purchase receivers and install them in their state squad cars. They may not transmit. Godfrey said his opinion of CB radio use by troopers is, "If it's good, the state ought to buy it. Or, get out of it." Godfrey is the Patrol's planning and research officer. He said he flew to Missouri to study that state's use of CB radios in troopers' cars. Georgia has also installed the radios in its troopers' cars, he said. Minnesota, he added, is, like Iowa, "testing the water to see if it's warm." Godfrey said the Patrol faces several problems in deciding what kind of radio should be purchased, and what polices should be set regarding their use by troopers. • But, he said an estimated one of every five vehicles in Iowa now has a CB radio, including about 50 state troopers' cars. He said they have been extremely useful to troopers.

For that reason, troopers would need to monitor that channel frequently if radios are installed in their state cars. . However, Channel 19 is the most popular channel, Godfrey said, and many CB users do not change to Channel 9 when they report an emergency. he said the Patrol will experiment with a CB radio which scans a number of channels, stopping on one when a message is being sent. Every few seconds, it would automatically return to Channel 9 to determine if an emergency message was being broadcast. Godfrey called the devise a "mandated scanner." Another concern of the police radio will interfere with police radio traffic. To avoid the interference, the CB antennas may be mounted on the trunk of the patrol car, or could be hooked into the police radio antenna. In addition, Godfrey said the Patrol has checked with a CB manufacturer "about what he sees for the future.'' Godfrey said the Patrol learned the present 23-channel CB radios may soon be out of date. The FCC, he said, is currently considering approving manufacture of 50-channel CB radios. The new radios would become available as soon as the FCC gave its approval, he said. Because the patrol does not want to invest in radios that may soon be outmoded, he said, he has "no idea" when the proposal to install radios in each patrol car could become a reality. Also, Godfrey said, "There's no way, in our budget, we have room for it." He said the $80,000 purchase would depend upon locating federal funds or ob- taining a special appropriation from the legislature. If the radios are eventually installed, the Patrol will have to establish rules for their use by troopers, Godfrey said. "Definitely. I feel we are going to transmit on Channel 9," he said, because a trooper would have to obtain information from a motorist trying to report an emergency. Whether troopers would also be allowed to transmit messages on other channels, or in other than emergency situations, has not been decided. No Claims Paid Out From Lawyers Client Security Trust Fund (Iowa Dally Press Association) DES MOINES - The client's security trust fund created by the Iowa supreme court to protect the public from dishonest lawyers has a balance of over $500,000. The size of the trust fund is indicative as to how well the system is working. John Neiman, a Des Moines lawyer who serves as chairman of the client security and attorney disciplinary commission, reports no claims were paid out of the fund in 1975. The supreme court created the trust fund in late 1973 after a rash of complaints. Iowa lawyers are required to support the fund to reimburse lawyers' clients whose funds were embezzled, misappropriated, or otherwise intentionally misused. Since creation of the fund, complaints received have been practically nil. While there were a few requests for reimbursements from the fund last year, no requests for reimbursement were approved by the commission. None of the requests involved misappropriation of monies by a lawyer, according to Neiman. All but one of the complaints were misinterpretations of the client security fund and involved complaints against lawyers concerning items other than money. Where the complaint appeared to have some merit, it was referred to the professional ethics and conduct committee, Neiman said. One complaint involved a fee paid in Advance to a • lawyer and the claim that the lawyer had not performed any services. The majority of the commission feels that the portion of attorney fees paid in advance which are unearned constitute a trust fund. The lawyer agreed to reimburse CARROLL GIBSON'S PIDCHIVI IMPERIAL blDoUlM GLASS 2+2 PLY POLYESTER CORD 2*2 FIBERGLASS BELTED WHITEWALLS E78-14 FREE MOUNTING!.

If he fails to do so, there will be a claim for $150. There is one other application for relief presently filed with the commission which has not been considered as yet involving $215. • Forty-seven states now have some type of client security fund, although they vary widely in their funding provisions and effectiveness, Neiman observed-. The idea of a clients' security trust fund has been accepted by the lawyers, Neiman said in a report filed with the supreme court. "Objections to the fact that each lawyer must pay into the fund in order to renew his or her license to practice law in Iowa, have to a great extend disappeared," he stated. Some 6,408 individuals are currently licensed to practice law in Iowa. Of that number, 1,603 lawyers have received certificates of exemption since they are either retired or practice law in some state other than Iowa. Additionally, 881 lawyers were exempt frorh payments into the fund, being either admitted to the bar within the past two years or being in military service. That left 3,924 lawyers subject to paying into the fund. Some 136 judges and magistrates, 321 government employes and 320 corporate employes were required to pay $25 each. In addition, 566 lawyers paid 1 per cent of their income, being other than full time lawyers. The commission reports that 2,581 full time practicing lawyers paid either $100 each, or, if they were admitted to practice less than six years, $50 each. The supreme court suspended the licenses of three lawyers for failure to comply with the rule. Receipts last year totaled $303,311 including $274,991 from attorney assessments and $38,320 on interest earned. In 1974, receipts totaled $306, 196, but that included a gift of $20,000 from the Iowa % State Bar Foundation to get the program started. At the end of 1975 the fund had a balance of $509,110. Assessments for 1976 are being reduced to $15 for lawyers who have paid a total of $200 into the fund. Neiman acknowledges that receipts for 1976 will be less, "but hopefully," he said, "will still be sufficient to get the fund up over $600,000." The court has approved an operating budget of $49,690 for 1976. Last year the trust accounts of 542 law offices were audited by the commission. The law offices varied in size from a one person firm to a firm with 20 people.
