Other Cities  Security precautions were also stepped up at airports in Amsterdam, Brussels, Home, Bonn and other major West European cities. Canadian airports joined in the special security alert.  But British security sources ruled out a direct connection between the expected attacks and the arrest of members of an alleged arms smuggling ring apparently based in California.  At New York’s Kennedy airport, FBI agents questioned Robin Orbin, 25, a San Diego model stopped and turned back by British authorities at Heathrow airport. They identified her as a “known associate” of three persons arrested in England earlier and charged with possession of firearms.  The British government also was expecting more bombing attacks by the Irish Republican Army, which stuck five times in London over the weekend.  Two of the targets Saturday were army generals. A bomb exploded outside the home of Maj. Gen. Philip Ward, damag ing nearby buildings but not injuring anyone. Another bomb was placed in a suitcase outside the home of Lt. Gen. Sir Cecil Blacker, adjutant-general of the defense ministry, but it failed to go off.  John L. Stepanek  John L.

Cedar Rapids Community school officials arc not considering any change in school hours at this time, according to Asst. Supt. William K. Ramstad.  “Our thinking is that we really are an urban school district rather than a rural one.

Ford also said tile President’s actions in handling the energy crisis and the Middle East could do more to restore public confidence in his administration than Operation Candor.  Early Ruling  Meanwhile senate Watergate committee lawyer s returned to court to press for an early ruling on whether President Nixon can legally reject committee demands for the tapes and documents.  Under a schedule worked out last week with Judge Sirica, the committee Monday filed a new brief in the civil suit it brought against the President last August.  That suit sought court backing for the committee subpoena demanding tapes of five presidential conversations.  I’he .subpoena had been rejected by the President just as firmly and on the same grounds as he cited in refusing to comply with three committee subpoenas issued last month that demanded nearly 500 tapes and other documents.  Sirica had dismissed the civil suit on the grounds the committee had failed to establish that the court had jurisdiction in the matter. But after congress passed a special bill, which the President said he was reluctantly allowing to become law without his signature, the U.S. court of appeals returned the case to Sirica.  In the house, John Dour gave senior members of the judiciary committee a rundown on the progress so far of a staff inquiry into possible impeachment of President Nixon.

Linn District Judge William Eads ordered Dec. 31 that the jury inquire into matters raised in an investigation of the police department by the county attorney, who brought no charges.  After selection of jurors Monday Eads gave them as their first order of business the inspection of the county jail and the Cedar Rapids city jail to determine whether there were any electronic eavesdropping devices.  Devices Used  be  so fast.  The Marion Democrat said the fuel crisis could lead to a realignment of nations, depending on how far Japan and others who must import virtually all of their supply are willing to go and how much they are willing to pay to get oil.  Th : <s possible new alliance of nations also hinges, he said, on “whether the Arabs can hang together long enough.”  This prospect appears “somewhat doubtful,”    Clark conceded    attention t ounty    Atty.    tinued, “when the    thought for a  William F aches statement    in his    | ong  tj mo  p as     ^ a ^ ^cy  report    that, there was no    ques-    fQuicJn’t get together at  a l!.”  tion that state statutes were    .    .    ^___  broken in breakins by police in „„    ^  Lon *  Tim '  searches for evidence.    ^    .    aisal and Kuwait  The board suggested the mat-i     0 0  shortage could  ter be presented to a grand'  on  [ or a  ^time.
