THE DECATUR REVIEW Decatur, Illinois, Tuesday, April 29, 1975 page Fourteen Macon County Deaths Marriei? Been Married for a lo time Nixon Says He Ordered Wiretaps New York (AP) Richard M. Nixon says he ordered wiretaps on Morton H. Halperin and others, "including of the National Security Council in an effort to discover the source or sources of leaks of highly classified information." The former president's remarks were included in a seven-page statement sent to Halperin 's attorneys in connection with a suit filed against Nixon by Halperin seeking damages which could run in excess of $300,000. American Civil Liberties Union attorneys who are representing Halperin in the suit filed in federal court in Washington disclosed contents of the Nixon statement Nixon's statement also claimed the suit was barred by the four-year statute of limitations, since the taps occurred between May 1969 and February 1971. But John Shattuck, one of Halperin's attorneys, said Monday night that under the "failure to disclose" provision of the law, the statute of limitations would not begin until the taps were disclosed in May 1973.

Beginning with the 65th anniversary an announcement will be used each year. Pictures will be used starting with the 50th anniversary and then at five-year interval afterwards. Pictures must be black and white. Polaroids cam be used. To insure that the announcement is published before the anniversary, please Submit it to the newspaper two weeka ahead of the anniversary event.

Those announcements received later will be used on a space available basis and may not be published in advance of the celebration. No anniversary can be accepted later than ONE WEEK after the anniversary date.

CIPS Asks Rate Hike Springfield (AP) The Central Illinois Public Service Co. has asked the state for permission to increase electric rates by 20 per cent and natural gas rates by 7.5 per cent.

The request was filed Monday with the Illinois Commerce Commission. If approved, gas rates would go up from $1.00 to $1.35 a month for a residential customer with a $20 bill. An electric bill of $20 a month would go up about $2.60, the utility said. CIPS serves about 287,000 electric and 140,000 gas customers in Central and Southern Illinois. The utility said the increase was necessary because of new con- struction needed to meet customer demands.

CIPS also asked for an interim electric rate increase of 9 per cent. DECATUR HERALDS DECATUR DAILY N. Questions?
