Iowa in Brief With interest DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)- lowa Commerce Commissioner Maurice Van Nostrand says he opposes dropping a law allowing utilities to increase their rates before the higher rates are approved by the commission. Proposed rate increases go into effect automatically 125 days after they are filed if the commission hasn't acted on them and if the utilities post a bond. As long as the commission can set interest rates on customer refunds when rates eventually are reduced, Van Nostrand said Tuesday that he saw nothing wrong with the present practice. The commission chairman spoke before an appropriations subcommittee where he was present to defend his proposed budget for the 1973-75 biennium. He made his comments after Sen. William Gluba, D-Davenport, said it wasn't right "to force the public to loan money to the utilities." Weight Rules DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)- Dcs Moines Police Department height and weight rules form the basis of a discrimination complaint filed against the department by Mrs. Nancy Moore, 28. Mrs. Moore, who filed the complaint with the Iowa Civil Rights Commission, said her application for patrolman was refused because she isn't at least five feet, nine inches tall and doesn't weigh at least 149 pounds. At a hearing Tuesday, Police Chief Wendell Nichols said he believes the requirements give officers a psychological advan-' tage over suspects. Split Vote WASHINGTON (AP)-Sens. Dick Clark and Harold Hughes, D-Iowa, split their vote Tuesday when the Senate approved 74-11 President Nixon's nomination of William P., Clements as deputy secretary of defense. Clark voted for the nomi- '< nation but Hughes was against lit. Iowa Seal DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)Rep. Harold Fischer, R-Grundy Center, claimed in a letter to Atty. Gen. Richard Turner that the Republican Party has exploited the Great Seal of the State of Iowa for commercial purposes. Asking Turner for an opinion Tuesday, Fischer said he wanted to know if the party violated the Iowa Constitution by using the seal on a bronze inaugural medallion selling for $20. Party officials said 600 of the objects were struck to raise funds. But Stephen C. Robinson, executive secretary of the party's State Central Committee, said only a facimile of the seal was carried on the medallions. Helmets DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Public Safety Director Michael Sellers has suffered another defeat in his continuing efforts to require motorcyclists to wear protective helmets. The Senate State Government Committee Tuesday rejected a request by Sellers to sponsor a bill requiring all riders and passengers on motorcycles to weat protective headgear. Sen. William Winkelman, R- Lohrville, opposed the measure, saying he thought the legislature would be "going too far" in telling motorcyclists what they must wear when riding their machines. Sellers has tried to have such legislation passed in the last two sessions of the legislature. He at one time set state rules requiring the protective head­ gears, but those rules were held unconstitutional by the courts. Standard Oil DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)Standard Oil Division of Amoco Oil Co. will build a $3 million, credit card center in West Des Moines to process accounts in 15 Midwest states, according to spokesmen for the firm. The center, set for completion Sept. 1, 1974, will employ as many as 500 persons, spokesmen said Tuesday.
