Trouble-making turtle Besides being slow, turtles can apparently be as stubborn as jackasses as well. This one planted itself in the middle of Highway 82, a bit south of Ashby recently, serenely sunning itself as cars rushed by. A passing motorist, with a little cajoling, enticed the turtle to the shoulder of the road. Then, preferring a little shade, perhaps, the turtle proceeded to creep under the car. More pleading, and a few threats, got it out from under the car and headed back toward Pelican Lake, its tail leaving a trail in the shoulder of the road. Rotation bill trial requested ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Secretary of State Arlen Erdahl said Thursday he has asked for a fullblown trial on the issue of whether names should be rotated on Minnesota election ballots. District Judge Hyam Segell, St. Paul, refused May 10 to hold the present law unconstitutional, saying there was not enough evidence on the question. Segell's ruling came on a motion by Erdahl for the court to take "judicial notice" of alleged unfairness under the present law. There has been no formal trial on the question. Minnesota law has long provided that the winning party in one election gets all its candidates listed first in the next election. Under the party designation law, the same provision now applies to legislative candidates. This will provide that all DFL candidates will be listed first on ballots this year. "The court asked for more evidence and we think we can prove that the present law is unfair by facts and statistics," Schedule for YMCA (Journal photos by BID Buk) Spying summary report revealed DETROIT, Mich. (AP)-Secret documents show that President Nixon and Henry A. Kissinger received regular summaries of spying and wiretapping conducted by the FBI on White House subordinates and supporters, the Detroit Fiee Press says. The documents, given Thursday to the House Judiciary Committee, indicated that Nixon, Kissinger and former White House Chief of Staff H.R. Haldeman were actively involved in domestic spying, the newspaper said in its Friday morning edition. • • The documents show that between May 1969 and February 1971, then-FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover sent the President, Kissinger and Haldeman frequent memos on the White House surveillance program, the paper said. The article said the wiretaps never led to incriminating information, but netted data on personal habits, a few minor vices and private political beliefs. In a staff memo. Hoover said Kissinger threatened to "destroy whoever did this ... no matter where he is" if the FBI could determine who had been leaking information. The Knight Newspapers story said another memo showed Kissinger agreed to the widespread use of wiretaps on Hoover's recommendation. Kissinger, then a top presi- dential adviser and now secretary of state, has denied under oath that he ordered wiretaps. The Knight Newspapers story said the documents indicate the White House plumbers squad, a group created to halt news leaks, may have been used to carry out spying and wiretap missions rejected by other domestic intelligence-gathering agencies because of questions about their legality, the paper said.

Hamm's beer being sued SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Lucky Lager beer has filed a (1.5 million antitrust suit against the brewers of Hamm's beer, alleging unlawful price discrimination and attempts to monopolize the California market. General Brewing Co. of San Francisco, brewer of Lucky Lager, claimed in a federal court suit that last March 4 the Theodore Hamm Co. of St. Paul, Minn., began to "unlawfully alter its pricing structure and to discriminate in the pricing of its beer."
