"By continued interest and attendance at board meetings, I believe I have a clear understanding of the problems the board is facing and understand the actions necessary to solve these.

Chicago has been under an alert for the past two weeks, he said, with the highest ozone levels in the city's history. The state agency checks the air quality standards in approximately 25 Iowa communities on regular basis. -0- The problem of controlling indirect sources of air pollution will be discussed by city officials at a meeting being scheduled for Aug. 7 in the Des Moines area. Peter Hamlin, environmental coordinator for the state office of planning and programming, said officials of the Environmental Protection Agency's regional office in Kansas City will be present to explain the current laws on this subject. Officials from cities over 10,000 population are being invited to attend the session. Beginning Jan. 1, 1975, the EPA will be taking over the indirect source program in Iowa because the last Legislature failed to pass the necessary legislation giving the DEQ authority to oversee the program. Indirect sources covers shopping centers, highways, amusement parks, airports, stadiums, parking lots and other developments which do not emit air pollution themselves but could cause congestion of auto traffic. After the first of the year, builders, developers and others falling in this category will need to secure a permit from the EPA in certain instances. •Fair (Continued From Page 1) eligible for the state fair berth in the senior dress revue.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Hundreds of Episcopalians gathered at the Church of the Advocate today for the controversial ordination of 11 women, destined to become the first female priests in the Church's history. The 2,000-seat church, a scaled down copy of the Amiens Cathedral in France, was filled, and many persons stood at the rear of the main chamber. Paul Piccard, 50, of Tallahassee, Fla., son of one of the women being ordained, was optimistic that the week-long controversy over today's service would eventually cool. "I'm a great believer in the power of reconciliation," he said. "If Christians can't be reconciled, they are missing the point of their own faith.'' Three retired bishops who came here to perform the ordination were joined by a fourth active bishop, the Rt. Rev. Antonio Ramos of Costa Rica, which is part of the U.S. Episcopal denomination. Ramos did not come to participate in the actual ordination, but did plan to join the other three bishops in a laying on of hands, an important part of the ceremony. The ceremonies were set in defiance of the denomination's long-standing practice and , regulations. DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — The first of seven expensive small cars which will roll into dealer showrooms for 1975 goes on review today as Ford Motor Co. unveils its new luxury compact Mercury Monarch. Ford officials have spared little effort in comparing the Monarch's appearance to the luxury Mercedes-Benz. The car's over-all length is 199.9 inches—four inches longer than the Mercedes, but two feet shorter than a standard Mercury—and its boxy styling is intended to emulate the traditional European look. , Such minor details as trim, mouldings, hood ornaments, wheel covers and plush interiors were emphasized by Ford stylists to give the car a luxury appearance. The car is expected to sell for between $4,000 and $5,000, depending on options. Ford, which raised the price of its 1974 models an average $536 since the end of the 1973 model run, has indicated its other 1975 cars will cost an average 8 per cent more than their current price. DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — Ford Motor Co. says it can achieve a 25 per cent gasoline savings with a new stratified charge engine, but can't build it unless future pollution rules are relaxed. Ford President Lee lacocca said today the firm is "more optimistic than ever" about the stratified charge engines, which spread combustion over a longer period of time to obtain a more efficient burn. "These engines have two rather important characteristics: They can meet current emission standards, and they can deliver a fuel-economy improvement of up to 25 per cent, compared with current engines, "he said. WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate is resuming work on a trade-reform bill that would give U.S. negotiators a weapon in the battle against worldwide inflation and shortages. But even though the Senate Finance Committee is back at work on the bill after several weeks' delay, there is no solid indication that the issue of Soviet emigration, which has held up action on the measure, has been resolved. And Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said in a weekend interview that, unless the measure can be brought before the Senate by early September, it may collide with a possible impeachment trial of President Nixon. LISBON, Portugal (AP) — President Antonio de Spinola said today that Guinea will be the first of Portugal's three African 7 colonies to be granted independence. "After we're through with Guinea, we will turn our attentions to Mozambique and Angola," Spinola said in a brief television inteview. The 64-year-old general had announced Saturday that Portugal was prepared to grant independence to its three African territories where Portuguese soldiers have been fighting independence movements for more than 13 years. WASHINGTON (AP) - California Lt. Gov. Ed Reinecke, convicted of perjury for his testimony before a Senate committee, was under court order to meet with probation officers today for a presentencing interview. Reinecke remained free without bond after the U.S. District Court jury returned the verdict against him Saturday. He characterized the trial as a gross miscarriage of justice and said he will appeal. The conviction on a single perjury count carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $2,000 ROME (AP) — Health services were paralyzed across Italy today as an estimated 100,000 doctors began a 48-hour general strike in a demand for hospital reform and new labor contracts. The strike came as hospital administrators sought to cope with increasing financial problems which have forced most hospitals into debt. Some are unable to pay salaries without borrowing. Emergency services were not affected, authorities said. .* MONTPELIER, Iowa (AP)— One person was seriously injured Monday when 30 cars of a Milwaukee Road freight train derailed just outside of Montpelier. Boyd Payne, 71, Houston, Tex., who was riding in one of the cars when the derailment occurred, was hospitalized in Davenport. Authorities said Payne is not a railroad employe.
