This picture of dried, cracked ground In a cornfield near Cedar Hill, Tex., can be multiplied many times throughout west Texas. John C.

(AP Wirephoto) Threats Said Made To Group Taking State Nurses' Exam WASHINGTON (AP) -- "It is emphatically the province and duty of tlie judicial department to say what the law is," Chief Justice John Marshall wrote 171 years ago. Wednesday, ruling in the case of President Nixon and the Watergate tapes, Chier Justice Warren E. Burger found those words handy to express his meaning. "It's 'emphatically the province and duty' of this court to 'say what the law is' with re spect to the claim of privilege presented in this case," Burger wrote for eight justices of the court. "What the law is 1 ' boiled down to this: Yes. the President has a privilege to withhold confidential communications within the executive branch from public scrutiny. No, that privilege is not abso lute but is subject to review by the courts. It was the 'first time in the nearly 185-year history of the court that it had been con 'ronted with a claim such a: :he one advanced by Nixon: That only the President can de cide whether he should provide evidence wanted for a crimina' trial. In answering the question the court said it agrees with Nixon that it is important for conversations 'between high government officials and their advisers to be confidential. "Human experience teaches that those who expect public dissemination of their remarks may well temper candor with a concern For appearances, wrote Burger. Then the court turned to the specific case at hand, in which Nixon sought to resist an orde to produce records of Whili House conversations wanted a potential evidence in the Water gate cover-up trial. The court has ruled in th past that secret military LITTLE HOCK group of Filipino (AP) - A nurses who Took" the state nurses' examination Wednesday said they were threatened with deportation and jail terms after one nurse was accused of cheating. Thessa Woolley of Pine Bluff, group spokeswoman, said some of the proctors and two off-duty Little Rock policemen acting as security guards had threatened the 18 Filipino nurses after some notes for the test were found in the purse of a nurse employed at St. Mary's Hospital at Dumas. Mrs. Woolley did not know the nurse's 'name. Mrs. Woolley said about an hour before the examination was completed, a proctor went to the Dumas nurse and opened her purse, which contained the notes. The Dumas nurse then reportedly told the proctor she had obtained the notes from Theresa Nativite, an employe of Jefferson Hospital at Pine Bluff. The proctors and the security guards then removed all of the nurses from Pine Bluff from the examination room and asked them .if they had notes Mrs. Woolley said. She said the guards made the allege! threats when the nurses repliec that they did not have an; notes. No other purse wa searched, she said. ^-Patrolmen Walter Willis and George Garrett, the two off duty policemen, asked Mrs Woolley, "EIow would you liki to be deported without you: husband?," she said. Mrs. Woolley, a Philipine born woman came to thi United States with her parent six years ago. She has beer married 1'A years to Marion Woolley, a Pine Bluff native and was graduated from Phil lips County Community Colleg in May. She said the policemen als told her she "could be sent t jail for cheating." Juanita Glenn, executive sec retary of the Arkansas Stal Nurses Association, and Ne Balkman, a member of th state Nursing Board, wer present, but they refused to discuss the allegations Wednesday diplomatic information may shielded from examination ight. They referred questions to he board's attorney, Deputy tty. Gen. Bill D. Etter, who ould not be contacted. Mrs. Glenn would say only lat there had been "a break in ecurity" .during the exam- nation. She said off-duty pa- rolmen routinely were em- loyed to direct traffic and land at the door during the ex- mination to see that no one ook materials to or from the xamination room. The Filipino nurses said some f the Pine Bluff nurses were .ccused of cheating because ne nurse there had taken the xamination in Illinois when he applied for a job there. She hen returned and told the oth- rs, in a general way, what the est contained, Mrs. Woolley aid. The study notes found in he Dumas nurse's purse stemmed from those conversations, Mrs. Woolley said. Mrs. Woolley said it was against rules to bring books or notes to the examination. the courts. But in the Water gate tapes, it said, national se- urity is not involved. Thus, it said, the President's laim ersts on "no more than a eneralized claim of the public nterest in confidentiality of on-military and 'non-diplomatic iscussions." That is not enough, Burger Showers Relieve Midwest Heal By The Associated Press . Thundershowers cluttered the ational weather picture along lie Atlantic Coast and in the 'lidwest today, but most were ight and temperatures were nild.

"We must weigh the impor- ance of the general privilege '. confidentiality of presidential ommunications in perform- nce of his responsibilities gainst the inroads of such a rlvilege on the fair adminis- tration of criminal Justice." Weighing this "confrontation with other values," the court decided in lavor of "the twofold aim of criminal justice ... that guilt shall not escape or innocence suffer." In 1952, rejecting the late President Harry S. Truman's claim of power to seize struck steel -mills in wartime, the court said that "the founders of this nation entrusted the .lawmaking power to the Congress alone in both good and bad times." In Wednesday's decision, th« court added to this that tha powers vested in the judicial branch "can no more be shared with the executive branch than the chief executive, for example, can share with the judiciary the veto power.
