Dan L. Kairtlarich, 5R, of 404? Forty-first St., told a State Campaign Finance Disclosure Commission hearing that "the Civil Service Commission frowns upon contributions anc work by police officers in a political campaign. "I didn't want to embarrass anyone," he said. Commission Probe The commission is investigating alleged wrongdoing in the financial reporting in the Clemens campaign. It filed a complaint with itself against Clemens campaign reporting practices. The complaint alleges Clemens did not properly report the amount of cash on hand at the beginning of each reporting period, the name and mailing address of each person who had made contributions to the political committee, the total amount of contributions made to the committee and the total amount of contributions or proceeds from any fund-raising event. Kauzlarich said that, in addi- ion to the $100 he gave Clemens, his wife gave $100 in cash and the couple wrote a $400 check to the campaign as a "loan." ; 'We called it a loan, but I had no expectation of getting it back," Kauzlarich said. About $300 of the loan was later repaid, records show. Campaign Signs Kauzlarich also said he made campaign signs in his garage, but that he "kept the doors closed" to keep his involvement in the campaign "behind the scenes." He said he was not denying his involvement in the campaign during the hearing because he was under oath. But he wanted to be able to deny it to anyone who got "nosey." Kauzlarich retired after 31 years on the Des Moines police department when Clemens was elected. Clemens then appointed him to the director of operations post in the sheriff's office. Kauzlarich was later fired by Clemens, who has said Kauzlarich is now trying to "slam" the sheriff by saying some contributions were not revealed. Tells of Letters Kent Forbes of 4925 Millow drive in Pleasant Hill, an em- ploye of the Des Moines Polk County Health Department, testified that he mailed between 225 and 250 letters to friends asking them to vote for Clemens because he had been promised a job as an administrator in Clemens office. He said the sheriff called him about two weeks ago and asked him if he was still interested in a'job. Forbes testified he spent be- teen t $50 and $60 of his own money to mail the letters. West Des Moines Mayor Murray Drake testified he and his wife wrote a $25 check to Clemens' camapign and that he made a cash contribution at a "lemens fund-raiser. He said he :ould not recall how much that cash contribution was, but that t was less than $25. Continues Today The commission is empowered by law to hear allegations of financial wrongdoing in a campaign and make a recommen- lation to the county attorney whether the accused should be prosecuted. The hearing which continues at 10 a.m. today, is being held )y the commission to make uch a determination in Clemens' case. Commission officials said hey believe the hearing should end today,, but the decision on any recommendation to the county attorney would not be made until after the agency has had another chance to meet and discuss the matter. ALEXANDER HAMILTON'S , of N.Y.PAIP THE Bill , WERE RMPWIb ToLU 1UElRM|.LSfoR Census rejected in Cedar Rapids Tht Rcglittr'i lew* Newt Service CEDAR RAPIDS, IA. - The City Council Tuesday rejected the results of a special census that was conducted last month at the council's request because it reflects an apparent decrease in population of almost 1,800 since 1970. The council turned down th« results because it would mean a reduction in state and federal funds which are keyed to population. Several council members took issue with the outcome, arguing that all other population j measurements indicate that [there has been an increase in I residents. They said the census results -~ are due to a "shoddy job" by the census takers. CROSSWORD PUZZLE Edited by Will Weng of Hie New York Hum Temporary delay in Stewart death LINCOLN, NEB.
