Inside, Cutbacks likely for ISU sports ISU Continued from Page 1A gram much if scholarships were dropped completely. Since gymnastics is mainly an upper-middle-class sport, "we'd still be competitive whether there were scholarships or not." Crawford also recommended that a temporary reduction of university money for sports information staff members and coaches' teaching classes be made permanent. Millions Saved Warren Madden, vice president for business and finance, and Thomas Thielen, vice president for student affairs, also gave their recommendations for cuts on campus. In all, the recommendations should save $3 million to $5 million on top of an estimated $4 million to $5 million in budget-cutting recommendations announced Monday. ISU President Martin Jischke must approve any cuts and the state Board of Regents must approve many of the changes. Crawford said the ISU committee headed by Daniel Robinson, a professor of professional studies, and Bill Goldring, assistant athletic director, will continue to review the operation of the entire department. Recommendations should be prepared by the February athletic council meeting. Other recommended ways to save money include: Seeking proposals for private management of the university book store, the university flight service and waste removal and recycling. Making what was a temporary cut in WOI-AM radio's broadcast hours permanent. WOI-AM no longer broadcasts between midnight and 5 a.m. Finding ways to make dormitory living more appealing to students. Fewer undergraduates are living in dorms, but the dorms should tailor more rooms for older students, graduate students and students who want special "quiet" floors. Special contracts also should be considered so students don't have to leave the dorms over breaks. Encourage more student organizations to "adopt a space" to clean up classrooms and campus grounds. Close Beyer Hall and State Gym to recreation during breaks and use the savings in the new recreation facility. Reduce weekend meals and daily breakfasts offered in the dormitories. More layoffs and reduced staff hours will result from the changes, the vice presidents said, but they said the details aren't known. Students will see the effects. Thielen said for the most part, the same services will be available "but I think it will be a little tougher for them to access them." Crawford said that student opportunities for foreign study would be narrowed and that the honors program will be limited. Madden said university staff and faculty will continue to clean their own offices "and you can all come join us on some Saturday morning while we clean." 36,000 Pounds Over Limit $17,000 fine By WILLIAM PETR0SKI Register Staff Writer An Osceola truck driver is facing a possible fine of $17,633 after being stopped by state trucking enforce ment officers for hauling what is believed to be one of the most overloaded corn trucks on record.

By HOLLY A. SMITH Register Staff Writer A former Burlington man still faces charges in Idaho for a theft that occurred while he was suffering from amnesia. Arthur Paul Beal, 23, will have a preliminary hearing Oct. 30 on a charge of grand theft by unauthorized control. Beal went to Nevada in January to sell gourmet food for Bon Appetite, a food distributor in Boise, Idaho. When he didn't contact the company or return to Boise, the company filed charges. Police never recovered the $1,600 worth of food but did find the van Beal was driving. "Unauthorized control" means Iowa ACKLEY Wilma Bell. 71. ALBION Leonard Warrington. 82. ANKENY - Donald L.

However, he was then stopped a second time and his truck weighed 93,300 pounds, Kougias said. " Ten charges have been filed against Holmes in Clarke County District Court in connection with the overweight truck. Holmes could not be reached for comment Friday. Kougias said DOT officers frequently encounter trucks that are overloaded with corn during the harvest season. However, he added, "I don't think it is a problem more so than any other kind of truck enforcement problem." Beal had the right to possess the property, but he disposed of it in an unauthorized manner, authorities said. Beal sold the food to pay for lodging and other costs. Alan White, Ada County deputy prosecutor, said it's uncertain whether the alleged crime was committed because of amnesia. Beal was featured on "Unsolved Mysteries" earlier this month in an attempt to determine his identity. Friends in Burlington recognized him and notified his mother and stepfather there. White said it would be difficult for the prosecution to prove an amnesiac is acting with criminal intent. The Beal case is now being handled by the Boise city attorney because of a possible conflict of interests. The Ada County attorney was also prosecuting Thomas Bacon, owner of Bon Appetite, when the Beal case first surfaced.

Clin-gan's school bus called him foul names, said he smelled bad and alleged that he had sexual activities with students. Objects were thrown on the bus and some students stood while the vehicle was in motion, despite Clin-gan's instructions that they be seated. Clingan, 62, who lives near Sigourney and drove a Sigourney Community School District school bus route from August 1990 until May 1991, complained to school officials, but he said nothing was done to correct matters. So Clingan quit his $4,500 job and filed for unemployment benefits. A hearing officer denied his application, but Clingan appealed and an administrative law judge granted the benefits. Those facts are in a report from an Employment Appeal Board hearing, which upheld the law judge's granting of benefits to Clingan, saying he was justified in quitting his job because working conditions were unsafe, intolerable and detrimental. The appeal board said a bus driver's responsibility is safe operation of the bus, and a driver can be expected to do only so much In maintaining discipline and control over the students.
