Holldorf,of Algona, was dismissed Friday in justice court at Ft. Dodge. The case against Holldorf, who was arrested at 1:45 a.m . Thursday, less than two hours after the new speed limit went-int effect, blew up and the charges were dropped at the request of Webster County Attorney Art Johnson. Holldorf was charged with excessive speed at night when stopped by two highway patrolmen on highway 20 east of Duncombe. According to the arresting officers, they clocked Holldorf at 71 miles an hour, six miles over the limit as outlined in an edict from state safety commissioner Clinton Moyer, who set up the. controversial speed limit and pyt it into effect. Moyer also issued the order to highway patrolmen to arrest all drivers traveling in excess of 61$ miles an hour. Three attorneys, Ralph Bastian, Edward Breen and John Mitchell,' agreed to take the Holldort case, for no fee, as far as the supreme court, if necessary. Mitchell is a- former Iowa attorney general and Breen and Bastian are former Webster County Attorneys. The attorneys requested and got a change of venue from police court to justice court.' Prosecutor Johnson moved for continuance, because, he said he needed the scientific studies conducted by the safety commissioner's office in order to try the case. Holldorf's lawyers contended the accused should have the right to a speedy trial, the justice, agreed and ordered a jury panel selected. Before the jury panel of six members could be picked, John- 'son announced the charges would be dropped, bringing dismissal^ NEED PRINTING? GOOD work at fair prices at th0 Upper Des Moines Pub.
