DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)-A recent Iowa Supreme Court decision on deferred sentences has taken away an effective tool of the state courts, according to Sen. Lucas DeKoster, R- Hull. The senate was set to resume debate Tuesday on a bill that would grant local courts permission to grant deferred sentences. "The situation comes about when person is accused of a crime and is ready to plead guilty, but the court finds this man would not really be helped by a sentence," DeKoster told the Senate. "But the court -determines he would be motivated with the threat of a sentence held over his head," DeKoster continued. Under the bill, the court could defer a sentence and place the defendant on probation. "If he stayed clean, the whole thing would be wiped out," DeKoster said. The Hull Republican noted that Iowa courts had used deferred sentencing before the Supreme Court ruled they did not have the authority. He said that practice has had "good effect" for the most part. DeKoster said he had just returned from Washington where he participated in a national conference on criminal justice. "It is obvious throughout, the United States penal system is not doing the job it should," DeKoster said. "Prisons and jails in this country are being used as schools for crime." DeKoster said the deferred sentence approach is working in many instances and keeping some persons, especially young persons, from embarking on a life of crime. Sen. Eugene Hill, D-Newton, disagreed with the deferred sentence approach, calling it "the ultimate as far as a permissive society is concerned." Hill said city streets are not safe and persons committing crimes should be taken off the streets. Don't Chase DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Sen. Karl Nolin, D-Ralston, Tuesday assailed the action of Iowa state troopers in a high­ speed chase over the weekend that resulted in the death of three young men. Taking the floor of the Senate on a point of personal privilege, Nolin said this was not the first time such a chase has resulted in death. He said such chases are a risk to the public and questioned whether law enforcement officers enjoy pursuit and capture of traffic violators as a sport. "Had the troopers avoided the chase, these young men would probably have been captured by some other method," Nolin said. "Had the troopers avoided the chase, we would have three youngsters in need of discipline— but alive." The high speed chase occurred Saturday near Ottumwa and killed Robert Ammenhouser, 16, Shawn Hurtig, 15, and Terry Lee Saner, 16. Name Carver DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Gov.

Dr. K. L. Johnson Dr. J. J. Roberts OPTOMETRISTS Contact Lenses 362-4213 123 North Sixth Street Diagonal from the Post Office Pay Cut WASHINGTON (AP) - W.A. "Tony" Boyle's annual pension as former president of the United Mine Workers has been cut from $50,000 to $16,000 by the union's International Executive Board. Boyle's successor, Arnold Miller, said the pension cut was effected by abolishing a special $2 million pension fund set up for union officers in 1960. Under the action, former Secretary-Treasurer John Owens' annual pension was trimmed from $40,000 to $13,000. Miller said the board also reduced salaries for eight union staff positions by an average of 40 per cent and eliminated special medical benefits for UMW international officers. Same Color TORRINGTON, Wyo. (AP) — Leaving a private club early in the morning, a local resident discovered his car had been taken from in front of the establishment. So he called the sheriffs office to report his car stolen. About a half_- hour later, the sheriffs office received a call from a slightly inebriated man saying he had mistakenly driven the wrong car home. The man said he left the same club, hopped into what he thought was his car, saw the keys in the ignition and drove home. The missing car was turned to its rightful owner. The sheriff's office said the cars owned by the two men were the same color but different makes. Asks Warning CHICAGO (AP) — The National Safety Council has asked the alcoholic beverage industry to place warning labels on cans and bottles that would alert consumers to the possibility that excessive drinking can impair driving ability, Howard Pyle, council president, said Monday that alcohol was a factor in at least half of the 56,700 traffic deaths estimated to have occurred in 1972. He recommended a cautionary label similar to that used by the drug industry warning users of adverse side effects. Thomas J. Donovan, president of the Licensed Beverage Industries, Inc., in New York, replied to Pyle's request by saying, "There is absolutely no evidence that any such warning label would work. "To be truly accurate, any such label would have to point out that the overwhelming majority of users may and do use alcohol safely, although a small minority of drinkers do abuse beverage alcohol, often due to a complex underlying health disorder."
