IOWA District Court Jurors Report, Not Needed District court jurors reported for possible duty Tuesday morning as the first session of 1968 opened with Judge G. W. Stillman presiding. The jurors were dismissed, however, when the matter they were to have heard, Loth vs. Bahnson, was settled out of court. It is not known for sure if the jurors will be recalled during the session or not. One case was dismissed by Judge Murray S. Underwood. It was a damage matter with Carolyn H.

The case was taken under advisement last October, with the dismissal coming Tuesday after study by the judge.
