JOHN W. BACHMAN —First Lady of Wartburg College From New York to Waverly; Easy step for Mrs. Bachman WAVERLY—From New York| and its 8,000,000 population to Waverly and its 6,000; from the sophistication of the. world's largest city to the familiar atmosphere of the Midwest; from the wife of a seminary professor to the First Lady of Wartburg College — these were just a few of the steps taken by Mrs. John W. Bachman this fall when her husband was inaugurated as president of the college at Waverly. Abrupt as the transistion was, however, it didn't disturb Mrs. Bachman. She attribues the easy change to the enthusiasm with which the Bachmans were greeted last summer. Elsie Bachman is a charming hostess who makes entertaining and homemaking a fulltime' job, taking only brief moments out to fulfill her interests in dramatics and literature. As mother of two sons, Mrs. Bachman is "the one who frie the fish after fishing trips," and who cheers the boys and her husband along on the golJ course, after a few unsuccessful attempts at both sports.

"U of I" remains legally State University of Iowa IOWA CITY — On contracts n d official forms, a certain arge public university in Iowa 'ily is designated the State Uni- ersity of Iowa, just as it has een throughout most of the last 17 years. Generations of alum' still refer to it as "SUI" and ie traditional letters remain in- orporated in the name of the Jniversity radio station, WSUI. But among both its intimate •iends and those who are bare- y aware of its existence, the nstitution is more readily iden- fied these days as The Uni- ersity of Iowa. Some have ailed it by this name for years, /hile others have only recently icgun to do so after the univer- ity suggested it. The University adopted its 'new" name in much the same nanner as the girl who has been "Jean Marie" all her 14 'ears and n o w wants to be called just "Jean" (or maybcl iust "Marie") by her parents' and friends. H was all done within the family, without a trip .o the courthouse (or the legis- a(ure), because no legal name change was contemplated. For the past several years, Iowa has had two institutions of higher learning which shared three common elements in (heir names, and both these schools shared two elements with yet a .bird institution: The State Uni- 1 versity of Iowa, the Iowa State University of Science and Technology, and the Stale College of Iowa. Misdirected mail, telephone calls, supplies — and even the occasional student — indicated considerable confusion outside Iowa as to which institution was which, and where. There was ample 'evidence of confusion even among lowans themselves Two months ago, President Howard R. Bowen reported to 'he Slate Board of Regents on some of this confusion, especially in various alphabetical in- ;lexcs and listings, and recommended that it be corrected. "We believe this can be done merely through usage and without any formal action," he said. To bring about the change, he suggested that stationery and publicajions might be imprinted with the style "The University of Iowa," and that the name be used in press releases and listings in educational directories. .President Bowen concluded liis report, "We recommend that the official name of the University continue to be 'State University of I o w a' but the name of current usage be simply 'The University of Iowa.' " This recommendation was ap proved by the Regents, and is being implemented by the University as opportunity arises. Charles City is planning new sewage disposal plant CHARLES CITY — Charles 'ity officials are hoping that revenue bonds for the proposed new sewage disposal plant will not exceed $235,000. Planning of the new plant ained momentum Friday, fol- owing the announcement by the U.S. Public Health Service that a federal grant of $237,420 had )een approved for the project. Total estimated cost of the plant, which will replace a 40- year-old unil, was reported as $818,000. The plant will be in a 40-acre tract adjacent to the dumb groung on the east edge of Charles City. 3 Charles City doctors cleared in damage suit CHARLES CITY — Three )harles City doctors were cleared by a District Court jury here Friday of charges of negligence in a $50,000 damage suit. Cleared in a suit brought by Mrs. Vera Elizabeth Butler, 59, Charles City, were Drs. H. A. Tolliver, Raymond M. Nielsen and C. L. Kelly. Mrs. Butler had charged that the doctors were negligent in their treatment of a leg injury she suffered in November 1961. The jury of 10 women and two men deliberated 7Vi hours he- tore finding in favor of the defendants. Mayor Lee Albaugh said Friday the city had been setting aside sewer-rental funds specifically for Ihc new plant. This fund is eslimated to be more than $350,000, which will substantially reduce the amount of bonds needed lo finance the project. The bonds will be paid off with future scwcr-rcnlal revenue. The sewage disposal project, which will include a new interceptor line and life station, will be the second major improvement undertaken by the city in two year's time. A new water treatment plant was built this year at a cost of $6:55,000. This required a bond sale of about $435,000, to be retired over a 20-year period. Charles City actually had no other alternative on the sewage treatment program. The city had been criticized in recent years for alleged pollution of the Cedar River and the Iowa Board of Health last spring suggested in no uncertain terms that the city do somclhing about Ihe situation. A government grant was applied for by Charles City in May 19G3. Mayor Albaugh said Friday the city will try to arrange a bid letting on the new plant sometime in January. Before bids can be let, however, certain state and federal contracts must be worked out. The new plant probably will be in operation by the summer of I9fifi, the mayor estimated.
