Coroners May Be Replaced Iowa Group Wants Medical Examiners DCS Monies, (U.R)—A bill to replace Iowa's county coroners with county medical examiners will be drawn up by Jar.. 1 for introduction in the next legislature, Atty Gen. Robert L. Larson said Thursday. Each medical examiner would investigate violent or unexplained deaths and report to a state medical director. Larson met Wednesday with Robert Hunt, University of Iowa legal instructor, and with medical groups to outline the bill, which has the tentative approval of the Iowa State Bar and Medical associations. Coroners are not now required to hold a medical license. Under the new proposals, medical examiners would be licensed physicians, osteopaths, or chiropractors. They would be picked from lists compiled by practicing physicians and named by a special state commission. The commission, to be appointed by the governor, would consist of the chief of the public safety department's bureau of criminal investigation, the state health commissioner, and i.he dean of the University 'of Iowa college of medicine. 6 lowans Are on Crew of Juneau Norfolk, Va., (U.R)—The '6 lowans in the crew of the new cruiser U.

By GERALD BOGAN Iowa Daily Press Writer Des Moines, (IDPA)—The interim flood committee's recommendation that an Iowa water control and resources council be established in Iowa will meet favorable reception in the 53rd general assembly, an Iowa Daily Press association legislative survey indicates. < The committee, which was authorized by the special session of the legislature last year and which studied the problem nearly 10 months, recommended a "dominant authority" in the form of a state council with control over "all other agencies, state and local whose activities relate in any way to conservation of water resources and flood control." An appropriation of $100,000 annually was recommended by the committee. 35 to 12 Results of the survey showed that house members favored the proposal 35 to 12 with 10 undecided, 18 not answering the specific question and 2 saying "perhaps." Among the 26 senators who returned questionnaires, 12 were in favor, 5 against, 1 undecided and 8 did not answer. Several said they favored the council idea but were uncertain as to the appropriation that would be needed. Another said, "yes, if the amount of money is right and is available." The committee rtas prepared 11 bills together with its report to the legislature. Among the subjects covered in the proposed legislation are water pollution, financing of sewage treatment plants, re-organization or elimination of school districts because of proposed dams, flood protection for cities and towns, revamping of drainage laws, and federal payments to tax districts. Could License Dams One of the major purposes of the omnibus council bill would be to unify flood and conservation activities and to establish a state authority which would deal with the federal government when that agency is involved. The council also would have the power to license commercial dams. That power now is held by the state executive council. One proposal of the committee is that the council be composed of 7 members, selected by the governor on a non-partisan basi with approval of the senate. An other would provide for 6 mem bers to be named by the governo together with one ex-officio mem ber from each of state agencie which have legal responsibilitie relating to flood control and soi conservation. The council woul select a director and set his sal ary. Pleads GuHty to Charge of Embezzlement Newton, (U.R)—H. J.
