HEAR OTTUMWA "PAYOFF" CASE Seek Public Safety Commissioner's Ouster Ottumwa, (ff -- The state was expected to rest its case Tuesday afternoon in the hearing on a petition seeking^ removal from office of G. E. Rho'ads, Ottumwa commissioner of. public safety. County Attorney John D. Moon said only one witness for the state remained to be heard when court recessed at noon. Nine witnesses were heard Monday and Tuesday morning. The removal action followed the nrrest of Rhoads on a charge of conspiracy, filed against him in connection with what Moon described as a gambling and liquor ''protection payoff" system in Ottumwa. Herbert Bagg, 44, former hotel clerk, also was charged with conspiracy in connectioi with the alleged payolf. One of the state witnesses Tuesday was Ray Coulter, operator of the Riverside Boat club, who tes- tilied that Bagg came to him in the summer of 1943 and told him he would have to pay S50 a month to operate a bingo game. Coulter testified that Bagg told him he was collecting "for city officials." It was the first time the term "city officials" had .been heard in the case. Rhoads had been the only one mentioned previously. .CROSS 'if Not Cop's Job to Post Signs . Iowa City --When a quarantine sign is tacked upon a house, it should be a health officer and n'ot a policeman who does the tacking. Dr. M. E. Barnes of the University of Iowa's department of hygiene and preventive medicine, said it is unfair to require policemen to put up such signs unless the attitude of the householder makes it necessary. ' "It is the business of the health officer to acquaint himself with the circumstances and give explicit information to the family about their activities. Only in this way can he obtain full co-operation, without which the placard ib meaningless and futile," said Dr Barnes. » The family whose home is placarded is entitled to full information as to what is expected am how to carry out these requirements. Only the health o f f i c e himself can give such informa tion.
