No More Tapes Will Be Yielded: Nixon's Lawyer WASHINGTON (AP) - As the House Judiciary Committee prepares to subpoena additional White House tapes, a presidential lawyer says "nothing in contemplation" would cause President Nixon to turn over more Watergate tapes. J. Fred Buzhardt, counsel to the President, was asked Sunday if Nixon's position is that he would refuse to yield either to a Supreme Court ruling or to a congressional demand for the tapes. "That's certainly my understanding of the present outlook of the President," Buzhardt replied. Buzhardt added that he does not feel that the White House ever will be faced with a court decision or a demand from the New AP '74 Sports Almanac Ready Hank Aaron has hit 715 home runs. Wilt Chamberlain once scored 100 points in a professional basketball game. 0. J. Simpson shattered the NFL's rushing record last season by gaining more than 2,000 yards. These facts are known by most sports fans. However, did you know that: Five million persons in Great Britain participate in the sport of darts? The longest jump by a water skier was 169 feet? A sled dog race in Alaska in 1973 took 20 days, 49 minutes and 41 seconds to complete? The superheavyweight record for the clean and jerk in ( weight lifting is held by a Czechoslovakian, who lifted 462% pounds? These little-known facts plus records and outstanding performances in the major sports during 1973 and before are chronicled in an appealing new book published for the first time and titled, "The Official Associated Press Sports Almanac." This 928-page book covering 100 sports will be available to readers of this newspaper around May 15th. The AP 1974 Sports Alamanac also contains the rules- of many sports, diagrams, more than 100 photographs and upwards of 50 profiles on the world's top athletes. Among those profiled were football's O.J. Simpson and John Cappelletti, baseball's Pete Rose and Reggie Jackson, golf's Jack Nicklaus and Johnny Miller, tennis' angry man, Hie Nastase, track and field's Ben Jipcho and Steve Williams, and Secretariat, the wonder horse. In addition, the book has profiles on the marbles shooting, rodeo, motorcycling and parachuting champions plus many others. A feature on Reno Levis, a star of the Wheelchair Games, is particularly poignant. Levis was rendered a paraplegic in an accident to his back. "After my accident," he Senate during an impeachment trial for additional tapes. The House Judiciary Committee, investigating possible grounds for impeaching Nixon, is expected to issue another subpoena this week. The committee resumes consideration of evidence Tuesday. Buzhardt also charged that a "malicious and vicious" campaign is afoot to poison the public's mind against Nixon by charging that ethnic slurs were deleted from the Watergate transcripts released recently by the White House. The New York Times, quoting sources with direct knowledge of Nixon's comments, has reported that Nixon used the terms "Jew boy" and "wop" in referring to public officials. Buzhardt. appearing on CBS' "Face the Nation," said he had listened to "close to 40" of the tapes and heard no ethnic slurs. However, a source with access to unedited tapes told The Associated Press: "No reasonable person who heard AP SPORTS ALMANAC (Carroll, Iowa Daily Time* Herald.)

Make check payable (o The Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court dealt a sharp setback to the Justice Department today by invalidating a number of anticrime wiretaps because federal officials failed to follow the law. The decision could upset federal cases numbering in the hundreds, including organized crime and narcotics prosecutions. The case turned on whether the Justice Department under former Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell followed the demands of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act in requesting wiretaps. The court held that Mitchell did not follow the requirements of the act in a series of wiretap requests that were signed by his executive assistant.

Israel Finds Little Progress in Talks JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli sources say the gap in the disengagement negotiations with Syria is as wide as ever despite a report by Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger of some progress toward an agreement. Kissinger reported progress after a nine-hour visit Sunday to Damascus, saying "we have passed from the state of general discussion and consideration to a detailed and complete examination of all the elements of disengagement." But after a 2'/2-hour meeting between the American secretary and Israeli leaders, authoritative Israeli sources said Kissinger told Premier Golda Meir and her aides that the differences between the Syrian and Israeli terms for an Israeli withdrawal on the Golan Heights were as wide as before although the Syrians were showing a new readiness for a separation of forces. The sources said Kissinger dwelt on "the alternatives to disengagement," evidently meaning another full-scale war. But Israeli Information Minister Shimon Peres indicated his government is not prepare'd to ease its terms. He told newsmen: "I don't think that any change is needed in Israel's basic attitude." or a specially-designated assistant attorney general approve wiretap requests. The wiretaps requests in question are made to federal judges, who must give approval before the taps can be made. Justice Byron R. White, writing for an unanimous court, noted that the Nixon administration insisted that it should have wide latitude in delegating the attorney general's authority to request wiretaps because the federal law grants wide latitude among state officials in approving wiretap requests. White said, however, "it is apparent that Congress desired to centralize and limit this authority where it was feasible to do so, a desire easily implemented in the federal establishment by Out of Wedlock Births Up DES MOINES. Iowa (AP)— The number of out of wedlock births in Iowa greatly increased from 1960 to 1972. but a State Department of Health official says his office is more concerned with the "what and who. rather than the how and why." Mike Dare of the records and statistics division said in an interview that in terms of the total population of unmarried women, however, the figures aren't that high. He explained that while the number of out of wedlock live births soared fom 23.2 per 1.000 females in 1960 to 77 per 1.000 in 1972, unmarried mothers represented only .9 per cent of the total number of unmarried women in 1960 and 1.3 per cent of the 1972 total. A study prepared by Dare called "Out of Wedlock Live Births in Iowa: 1960-72" shows the biggest increase in Scott County where births nearly quadrupled—64 in 1960 compared with 249 in 1972. Van Buren County had only one such birth in 1972 and in terms of numbers. Polk County had the highest—518 compared with 266 in 1960. according to the study. Dare said he sees no correlation between the incidents of rapes and out of wedlock births. Fremont County had the highest number of rapes in 1972, but Polk County had the highest number of out of wedlock births, he said. The study shows 52.7 per cent of the out of wedlock births occurred in the 15-19 age group. However, women age 25-34 had a higher rate of such births than those in the 15-19 age group. confining the authority to approve wiretap applications to the attorney general or a designated assistant attorney general. "To us, it appears wholly at odds with the scheme and the history of the act to construe (it) to permit the attorney general to delegate this authority at will, whether it be to his executive assistant or to any officer of the department other than an assistant attorney general," White said. The wiretap applications in question were signed by Sol Linderbaum who was Mitchell's executive assistant. In a companion case the court permitted the government to preserve the evidence gathered in a number of other questioned wiretaps. WASHINGTON (AP).— International Business Machines Corp. lost a bid today for Supreme Court review of a ruling that it turn over some 700 documents to government antitrust lawyers or face a fine of $150.000 a day. At the same time, the court refused to consider the request of IBM's attorneys, Cravath. Swaine and Moore of New York, for permission to intervene in the case. The appeals arose from an order by U.S. District Court Judge David N. Edelsein of New York directing IBM to turn over some 700 documents to government lawyers who have launched an antitrust suit against the computer giant. Edelstein refused to let the lawyers intervene on their own behalf, saying this would be at odds with their responsibility to represent their client. The fine levied against IBM has been stayed pending the appeals. The government's civil antitrust suit against the corporation is being readied for trial before Edelstein. The documents were involved in a private antitrust suit brought against IBM by Control Data Corp. In the process of that case, which was settled out of court, IBM turned over a massive amount of documents. In doing so, the corporation's attorneys argued, they inadvertently included papers which they were legally entitled to keep secret. The judge ruled that because IBM inadvertently yielded the documents in the previous case, it is now required to turn them over to the government also. Strike Favored by Only One Group of Truckers in Iowa By The Associated Press While many Iowa independent truck drivers appeared to be taking a wait-and-see stand on the threatened nationwide truckers strike, at least one group has voted in favor of it. A group of both independent and company truck drivers in the Burlington area voted Sunday night to go on strike. The nationwide shutdown was to begin at 12:01 a.m. Monday. Orin Amus, a spokesman for the Burlington group, said 36 of the 41 drivers at the meeting voted in support of the strike, which is backed by Michael Parhurst, editor of Overdrive Magazine. Amus said the group wants a rollback of fuel prices and a permanent freeze placed on the prices and higher speed limits. He said another meeting would be held Tuesday to determine if the truckers would remain on strike. Elsewhere in Iowa, truck traffic was described as close to normal in the central area, but unusually light in eastern and western sections. Truck-stop spokesmen in Atlantic and Williamsburg said Sunday truck traffic was much lighter than usual for a Sunday. Truck stops in the Sioux City, Council Bluffs, Cedar Rapids and Iowa City areas reported traffic was down slightly. The Independent Drivers and Operators Association, which is composed of western Iowa and eastern Nebraska drivers, had earlier indicated it would support the strike. However, Willie Hollesen, association president, said ckers Co-op decided May 4 not to join the threatened shutdown, but Charles Vaske, executive vice president, said the group is now taking a wait-and-see attitude. The organization was reportedly keeping a watch on what action truckers take in the Minneapolis, Minn., and Chicago areas. A spokesman for the Iowa Highway Patrol said Sunday there were no plans to put additional troopers on duty but he said the IHP was keeping an eye on the situation.

Senate Heads for Battle Over Busing Fights Charge — Pleading that an indictment for his allegedly lying to a Watergate grand jury investigating the IT&T scandal should be dropped, Lt. Gov. Edward Reinecke of California said he would never have been indicted if he had falsely implicated the White House. Reinecke charged an assistant to the special Watergate prosecutor promised him immunity if he would do so. WASHINGTON (AP) -The Senate is heading into a bitter floor fight over renewed efforts to virtually kill court busing orders as a method of achieving school desegregation. The first voting showdown on the issue will come Wednesday. But there may be other tests before the Senate finally disposes of the massive $23 billion education bill serving as the vehicle for the busing battle. The Senate will resume debate on the standby energy bill when it convenes today but turn to the education measure later in the afternoon and stay on it the rest of the week. In the House, the Judiciary Committee on Tuesday will resume its closed-door staff briefings in the Nixon impeachment inquiry and continue them on Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday the House will debate the bill to compensate Mississippi poultry growers for destruction of contaminated chickens. Both sides expect the Senate vote on antibusing amendments to be extremely close. Busing foes say they have the best chance ever to get through the Senate an effective provision to kill desegregation plans which make use of extensive transportation of grade and high school students. Civil rights groups are mounting an all-out effort to defeat the antibusing riders.

Attend Shrine Circus — -Staff Photo About 560 fifth grade students in Carroll County attended the 24th annual Za-Ga- Zig Shrine Circus at Vet's Auditorium in Des Moines Saturday afternoon. The annual trip was sponsored by the Carroll Greene Shrine Club, which provided tickets for the youngsters. Parochial students among those attending are shown in the top photo and Carroll Community students in the lower picture. Six- teen buses from Carroll, Manning, Glidden. and Coon Rapids transported the students.
