ident WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen. Adlai E. Stevenson lit, frill., charged today that President Nixon has betrayed "the trust of the Senate, his own attorney general And the special prosector" by refusing to release tape recordings and documents that could clear up conflicting testimony about the Watergate scandal. tie also accused the President of "obstructing Justice." STEVENSON, who forced Attorney General Elliot L. Richardson to promise full authority to Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox during confirmation hearings In May, said he was "sickened by the President's disdain for the orderly processes of law. In a May 17 letter to the Illinois Democrat, Richardson said the prosecutor "will have access to all relevant documents," and in another letter four days later, Richardson said "the special prosecutor, not the attorney general, will determine what documents may be relevant to his mis- •sion." The President, Stevenson recalled in a floor speech, promised that Richardson would be "fearless in pursuing the case wherever it leads/' , "BY DENYING Mr. Cox access to the tapes, Mr. Nixon has changed the rules. He has breached his contract with the Senate," Stevenson said. "He is betraying the trust of the Senate, his own attorney general and the special prosecutor who accented the office upon the assurances of full authority." Stevenson continued: "I am sickened by the President's disdain for the orderly process of law. He does not seem to care about his own solemn assurances. They are made one day and are inoperative the next. ". . . Now the President is clearly obstructing justice. He is covering up the cover-up. Most Inhabitants ^ In the Good Old Days •..

IT PROPOSES that separation of materials into proper containers could be enforced in the same manner as it is in Chicago. In that city, if refuse is not properly separated, collectors leave the refuse on the curb, notify their superior, and a ticket is issued to the householder. Other ordinances suggested include a ban on non-rfeturn- able bottles in the county; regulating types of ink used on paper products marketed in the county since some are difficult to remove; consideration of a ban on garbage disposals to lighten the burden on the sewage treatment plant; issuance of tickets for allowing discarded items such as autos or appliances in yards or fields, and an ordinance that would require 500 pounds of compost per acre be used on stripmined land to replace topsoil. The study suggests that compost be spread every other year for six years after mining has ceased, and that compost also be used as a mulch on all new construction, including roads.

However, cheap materials should stimulate new uses." The study also points out that nonferrous metals are becoming more scarce and more expensive to mine. That point seems to be the single fly in the ointment in near Calamus, recycling. The operator of the Milwaukee, Wis., transfer station told members of the Knox County group more than a year ago that when a market develops for reclaimed goods, only then will recycling work. He contended that there is now no such market, making recycling a non-paying process. Jack Witt, Knox County highway superintendent, said he has not seen a landfill operation which reclaims materials for recycling in his travels to many such sites.

"If it is to work, however, it must be done on some basis such as the study suggests. A 1-shot deal won't work.

"Personally, I would love to see it work, and I feel sure the county would be open to the plan if it could be proved feasible," he stated. gunshot wound in the back and was listed in serious condition. A .38 caliber revolver was used in the shootings. Turner suffered a flesh wound in the leg. He was in custody at Mercy Hospital in Clinton, deputies said. The shootings occurred about 1 a.m. today at Long's farm on U.S. 30 about two miles east of they Calamus. Deputies said have been unable to determine Bus Accident At Effingham Hospitalizes 6 n EFFINGHAM, HI. (UPI) Five passengers and the driver of a Greyhound bus were injured Sunday in a collision with a set of wheels from a semi- tractor trailer on Interstate 57. Authorities said the accident occurred about 13 miles south of Effingham when the semi, driven by Jim Schaubert, 32, Oden, went out of control in the southbound-lanes of the highway, rammed through a guardrail and crossed the median strip. The wheels of the trailer and one set of wheels from the tractor came off as the cab and trailer separated. . Police said the bus, going from Chicago to Memphis, then struck a set of wheels from the semi that had remained on the highway. The bus went out of control, went through a guardrail and stopped on the median strip, police said. The driver, Earl Watts, 59, Memphis, Tenn., was thrown from the bus and was taken to St. Anthony Memorial Hospital in Effingham, where he was listed in serious to critical condition. Five of the 52 passengers aboard were hospitalized in fair condition. Lake Bluff Woman Battles Uni In Attempt To Save Moving Firm BLUFF, 111. (UPI) - with her and that union offi- Marie C.

But it won't be enough to meet the import needs of Poland, East Germany and Czechoslovakia, he said. Urban said his report was drawn from conclusions of a research team that reviewed the feed and livestock situation of the seven eastern European countries. The report shows a growing demand for soybeans and grain to produce steadily expanding supplies of meat. Trends turned up in the re. rt, Urban said, indicate that "during tiiis decade the United States can expand significantly its exports of oilseeds and oilseed products to eastern Europe."
