V Upholding the Law. . . "That will be $10," says Her Honor, Marilyn Loebach, Police Court Judge. At least she smiles, to make it a little easier on the wrongdoer. — - - (Daily News Photo by Chuck Ostheimer) Police Court Judge By CAROL HIGGINS "He said he didn't ever want to come back here," sighed the personable young woman behind the desk, "and I even smiled as I told him what his fine was." Although of a friendly, outgoing nature, she is not really unhappy that people in Estherville avoid her office. She is Mrs. Marilyn Loebach, Estherville's new police court judge. Hearing about traffic mishaps, speeding and stop sign violations is "old hat" to Mrs. Loebach. Her husband is Marvin Loebach, Iowa State highway patrolman. "WithMarv working in the highway patrol," she says, "I was interested in the law and find this job very educational." She hastens to explain that as a citypolice judge, highway patrol cases are not within her jurisdiction. It is illegal for a judge to hear testimony from a relative. FORMERLY a teacher at Estherville High School, Marilyn may occasionally give hearing on a traffic charge to someone she has known as a student. She and Marv moved here in 1966 and she taught biology part time at the high school. From 1968 to 1970 she taught physical education at the junior high school. — She has been attending college at Mankato, Minn., working toward obtaining a master's degree in physical education. She was always athletic, she says, and her interest in teaching was sparked by a teacher in high school who "would let me take charge of classes in my free time. She helped develop my skill for teaching and the love of 'phy ed.' " "You must have physical education to relieve tension and to improve coordination," she says. Now working on plans for herthesis, she is looking for a topic that will be "very pertinent to help 'phy ed' majors — something like a new technique to a game — at one time I toyed around with the physical fitness bug." PART OF her love of athletics has taken the form of horseback riding. For several years, she bred horses and sold the colts and still owns two registered quarter horses, a mare and a gelding. She broke the colts herself and sometimes bought horses "green broke" and finished breaking them. "If you start them young enough, they aren't too bad — keep them gentled and not spook them," she says. "I have gotten thrown many times. Of her mare, now 5 years old, Marilyn says, "I don't devote enough time to her so every time I jump on her back, we have a bucking spree— and now and then she gets rid of me." HER LATEST interest has been in motorcycling. Marilyn and Marv each have a Harley Davidson 74, one of the largest cycles and the only one produced in the United States. Avid travelers, they toured Michigan last summer and have another trip planned for this summer. Besides these motorcycle trips, she has traveled all over the United States by car. As a police court judge, she has a good understanding of the motorists' problems. So she smiles as she pronounces the fines.

Jensen Infant Baptised Jan. 16 By BEN FUNK Associated Press Writer MIAMI (AP) - After three weeks of bootlegging, illegal sales by some merchants and general confusion, Dade County housewives apparently have settled down to life without the phosphate detergents which dirty up waterways while cleaning clothes. A county law outlawing the w a t e r-polluting phosphates went into effect in a metropolitan area of 1.3 million population Jan. 1. Shelves In detergent sections of some stores were almost bare for two weeks as stocks dwindled. Many housewives made a run on stores in adjacent Broward County to buy their favorite phosphate brands. "It was un- RINGSTED — Larry Laverne Jensen, infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Laverne Jensen was baptized Jan. 16 at me morning worship service at St. Paul's Lutheran Church' by the Rev. Harold L. Andersen. The infant's sponsors were Mr. and Mrs. Lowell (Lois Jensen) Platter, Graettinger. Dinner guests included his sponsors and their family, his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Murray, Graettinger and Mr. and Mrs. Richard Jensen. Also Mr. and Mrs. Lyle Jensen, Cylinder, Terry Murray and Becky Starkey, Kenneth, Tony and Kathy Murray, Graettinger. Bill Murray was unable to attend. Ecumenical Service Churches of Estherville community will be united in an ecumenical service for Christian unity at 4 p.m. Sunday at St. Patrick's Church. People of all faiths are invited to attend. There will be a social hour following the unity service in the St. Patrick's parish center. real," said the manager of one chain store. "They bought the stuff by the case." Then phosphate-free brands began to hit the market in volume. The manager of a Publix supermarket said the women seem to be accepting the new products "and we've had only a few minor complaints." Marie Cox, one of the housewives who led the fight to do away with phosphates, blamed the confusion and temporary shortages on the major detergent producers. "In my opinion, the merchants expected an 11th hour delay in enforcement of the law. The majors were telling them? 'Wait, don't do anything, we may be able to get rid of this law,"' Mrs. Cox said. Consumer stockpiling in ad­ vance of the deadline also contributed to empty shelves. Some were almost bare of cleaning products as early as Christmas. The law bans not only sale and distribution but use of the phosphates; ''The women using these'products are subject to fines of $500 a day or 60 days in jail," said Peter Baljet, the county's chief pollution control officer. Baljet said he had sent letters of violation to several stores, mostly small independents which had continued to sell phosphate detergents, and the next step would be prosecution. "More and more nonphos- phate products are coming into the market," Baljet said. "The situation is settling: down. I haven't received any complaints from women, even when I appeared on a radio talk show which invited telephone calls." ' John Williams, floor sales coordinator in a Sears store, said sales of that company's no-phosphate detergent were" booming. Several food chains offered their house brands and reported them selling well.
