fifjis Falls (Mi.) tana! Wed., April 10,1974 Booty is put to good use WASHINGTON (AP) When U.S. Customs officers in Wilmington, N.C., seized an undeclared shipment of 10- speed bicycles, their bosses immediately saw a way to conserve energy. The 28 bikes were sent to Customs offices in the Southeast, where inspectors no\v are pedaling on official business. They are supplementing automobiles, said Commissioner Vernon D. Acres. Welcome planning didn't come easy BAD AXE, Mich. (AP) - It isn't easy for a small town to get ready for the President. There's a lot to do, such as teaching 300 high school musicians the music to "Hail to the Chief." Especially when they're on a spring break from classrooms. And President Nixon's visit caused a run on toilet and facial tissue. Residents are using the paper to build a 3S-by-12 foot display reading, "Huron County Welcomes the President." "Rounding up the bands was just the start of the problems," says Edward F. Draves, a beer and wine distributor and ex- mayor who is helping organize the GOP reception. "Then we found out that none of the kids knew how to play 'Hail to the Chief. There was never any cause for it before up here. "We told one of the White House men, and he said not to worry. Saturday, about 400 copies of the music were flown in." The idea of six bands blaring "Hail to the Chief" was too much for the Nixon advance men, and they suggested each of the units go their own musical way. Penny saved still a penny SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Hoarding pennies doesn't pay. Angelo Carella, vice president of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, says he's concerned that people might hoard pennies on speculation they may soon be worth more than one cent because of the copper they contain. But it's not so, he says. "Even if the price of copper increased from its present domestic price of 65 cents a pound to $1.50 a pound, near the present free world market price, a copper hoarder would have to acquire nearly 240,000 pennies to eke out a $100 profit," Carella said. Maheu testimony formally issued IX)S ANGEl£S (API-Former Howard Hughes aide Robert A. Maheu has testified the billionaire's political contributions were nondiscriminatory and included donations to the 1%8 campaigns of President Nixon, Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey and the late Sen, Robert F. Kennedy. A censored report of Maheu's testimony to Watergate investigators, made a court exhibit Tuesday in U.S. District Court by Judge Harry Pregerson, quoted Maheu as saying: "Hughes wanted to make sure that all bases were covered, that whoever was selected would be 'beholden to him.'" Portions of the report were admitted as testimony in Maheu's $17.5-nu'llion defamation suit against Hughes, whom he once served as head of the billionaire's vast Nevada operations. Maheu contends his ex- boss defamed him in a 1972 telephonic news conference in which Hughes allegedly said Maheu "stole me blind." The report stated Maheu said he and former Nevada Gov. Paul Laxalt attempted to deliver a $50,000 contribution directly to Nixon "in Palm Springs in late 1968 or early 1969," while Nixon was addressing a convention of Republican governors. Maheu told Watergate investigators the attempt failed be- cause former White House counselor Robert Finch learned of it from Laxalt and "the contact with Nixon was not established." Maheu said in the report he flew from Las Vegas, Nev., to Palm Springs, Calif., with the money in a briefcase and then drove to the convention site where he was allowed by Secret Service agents to park directly in front of the hotel where the governors were meeting. "I asked them to watch the car carefully without telling them, of course, what was in the trunk," Maheu testified. Maheu said in the report that he committed a sum of $25,000 for the Robert F. Kennedy campaign through Pierre Salinger, who had served the senator's brother as presidential press secretary, After Robert Kennedy's assassination in 1968, Maheu said he delivered the money to Larry O'Brien, postmaster general under President Kennedy, to help meet Robert Kennedy's campaign debts. "Subsequently, Mrs. Kennedy wrote a 'thank you' letter to Hughes," the report quoted Maheu as saving. The commonest speech sound is the vowel a (as in the English father); no language is known to be without it. foods of ^S^L. ^L r*w r HARVEST QUEEN Canned Peaches ^41 c W/ HALVES OR SLICED, YELLOW CLING / I RED OWL STORE HOURS: *v '•'" /Y'j Open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 9 y t? p.m. Saturdays — from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Closed r Sundays.
