First Test Of Speed Law By Algona Driver A so-called "lest case", por- tnining to Iowa's 65 mile an hour night-time speed limit, and involving 22-year old Gerald XV. Holldorf of Algona, was dismissed Fridav in justice court at Ft. Dodge. The ca?e against Holldorf. who was arrested at 1:45 a.m . Thursday, ]PSS than two hours after the new speed limit went int effect, blew up and the charges were dropped at thp 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 office's, 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 tho controversial speed limit and put it into effect. Moyer also issued the order to highway patrolmen to arrest all drivers traveling in excess of 65 miles an hour. Three attorneys, Ralph Bastian, Edward Breen and John Mitchell, agreed to take the Holldorf case, for no fee, as far as the supreme court, if necessary. Mitchell is a former Iowa attorney genera] and Breen and Bastian are former Webster County Attorneys. Tho 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, Johnson announced the charges would be dropped, bringing dismissal. NEED PRINTING? GOOD work at fair prices at the Upper Des Moines Pub.
