County /aw officers receive faw hints By PHILIP HAGE City Editor State and U.S. Supreme Court decisions in criminal cases during the past year have set few precedents to guide law enforcement officials, Bernard Bodien, assistant county attorney, told the Otter Tail Peace Officers' Association in Dent Tuesday evening. In addition, there have been few legislative changes in the state criminal code to affect law officials in apprehending and prosecuting criminal suspects, he added. Bodien noted that if a policeman in pursuing his official duties smells the odor of burning marijuana, this is sufficient grounds for the officer to search an individual suspected of smoking or possessing marijuana, or the vehicle in which he is sitting. Bodien noted parenthetically that the number of drivers arrested in Otter Tail County for driving while intoxicated and who were subsequently discovered to have marijuana in their possession was increasing. Bodien noted that a complaint by two or more persons to a peace officer against another person's behavior constituted grounds for an arrest of disorderly conduct. Bodien cautioned the officers to protect a suspect's con; stitutional rights and to be , careful of the rights of a : juvenile suspect. "A juvenile can waive his Miranda rights (against self- incrimination in statements : concering a crime) without ; parental consent or presence, ; but the juvenile must be aware • that his parents may be present » during an interrogation," he j said. "If it is possible that a i-'juvenile may be certified to " adult court for the alleged crime, he must be aware of this." (In Minnesota, a person under 18 years of age is usually tried as a juvenile in juvenile court.) Bodien urged the peace officers to keep abreast of scientific advances in gathering and processing of physical evidence relating to a crime, but noted that few criminal cases, particularly in rural areas, are solved by use of physical evidence. "The major criminal cases are broken by talking to the persons involved in the suspected crime — the victim, the suspect and witnesses," he said. Bodien added that the majority of the cases are solved simply by obtaining information from the suspect. Bodien urged officers investigating even the most routine crimes to complete a thorough investigation by asking the proper questions, checking all possible witnesses and asking around the community for possible information relating to the crime. Guilty plea is given ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - An Ohio man arrested by the FBI in Cleveland last December has pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to robbing the Phalen Park State Bank. Judge Edward J. Devitt ordered a pre-sentence investigation for Johnnie M. Shepher, 21, Akron, Ohio, who had been indicted in connection with the armed robbery last Dec. 3. He was arrested two days later in Cleveland, after escaping with about ?2,000 from the bank. About 30 minutes earlier, a man answering Shepher's description attempted to rob the Hillcrest State Bank in St. Paul, but \fH when a teller ignored his demands. i Seminar on housing legislation set here HAIR PULLING — A woman worker gets her hair pulled (foreground) as she makes her way through angry loyalist demonstrators at the Harbour Industrial Estate in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

(AP Wirephoto) Transcripts Mrs. Nixon topic WASHINGTON (AP) — It was to be for Pat Nixon a pleasant occasion, "A Day in the Country," as the congressional and Cabinet wives called their annual Congressional Club luncheon for the first lady. But as so often happens these days in Washington, the subject of Watergate came up. And Mrs. Nixon bristled. "Yes," she said tersely when asked if she has read the edited transcripts of her husband's Watergate conversations. "I did. It takes 9 to 12 hours. You can't just read excerpts." Then she turned to the reporter questioning her during the luncheon at the Shoreham Americana Hotel and asked if she had read the entire volume. "Only about 300 pages," came the reply. "When you've read it all come back," Mrs. N'ixon said, turning away. To another reporter who ;isked the first lady for a reaction to the edited transcripts, Mrs. Nixon snapped, "Now look, this isn't a press confer- MAN IX)SES SLEEP OVER TAXES TORONTO (AP) - The tax department received a letter along with a tax return recently. "1 haven't been able to sleep since cheating on my income tax," the letter read. "Am enclosing a check for $500. If still unable to sleep, will mail you the balance." ence. This is a party. If you want, ask the people here who have worked so hard on all of this so it will get in the newspapers." Then she turned to the chairman of the luncheon, Mrs. Ruth Thone, who was trying to shield Mrs. Nixon from reporters' questions, and said, "I don't think it's fair to take the limelight away from all those who have worked so hard." Later, Mrs. Nixon made a veiled reference to her husband's-Watergate troubles when she said to the more than 1,000 women who gave her two standing ovations, "You're my best friends. Your words, like in '1 love you,' 'we support you,' they cheer me up. These are the things that give you the chance to fight for what's right. And that's what we're doing." "It's a difficult time for her," said Helen Smith, Mrs. Nixon's press secretary. "She says she doesn't want to talk about these things because she wants to focus on the positive." Mrs. Smith said she does not think the first lady has listened to the actual tapes from which the transcripts were made. It hurt Mrs. Nixon to see her daughter Julie and her husband David Eisenhower hold a press conference May 11 to defend her father's innocence in the Watergate scandal, Mrs. Smith said. • A series of seminars on current housing legislation are being offered throughout the state under the joint sponsorship of the State Planning Agency, the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency, the League of Minnesota Municipalities, Regional Development Commissions and the Metropolitan Council. The Otter Tail Power Company, 125 South Mill Street, will be the site for the seminar being held in Fergus Falls on Thursday, May 30, from 7 to 10 p.m. The public is invited without charge. The major emphasis of the program will be on the housing rehabilitation program proposed by Governor Wendell Anderson to the legislature during the 1974 Session. As part of this legislation, the Minnesota Housing finance Agency was provided with a $100 million bond fund for use in making home rehabilitation loans. James Dlugosch, director of the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency, stated that the series of seminars are being held to inform citizens, local units of government, lending institutions and others about the operation of the program, eligibility requirements and application procedures. According to Dlugosch, the 1974 legislative session added a variety of other tools that will aid in the revitalization of communities and neighborhoods. These will be explained by participating agency representatives and other faculty including James Solem, director of the Office of Local and Urban Affairs, Minnesota State Planning Agency; Philip Cohen of the 1/eague of Minnesota Municipalities; Bruce Beneke, Ramsey County legal Aid Society; Kermit Mahan, director of the Austin Housing and Redevelopment Authority; and Martin Meldahl, rehabilitation director of the Duluth Housing and Redevelopment Authority. mortgages.
