Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - January 9, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 2A Thc Ccclar ltaP'ds Gasettf: Jan. 9, 197-1 Planners Okay Rezoning, Reject Annexation Idea The city planning commission voted Tuesday to approve a pre- liminary plat of Sylvan lane first addition, after prolonged debate on whether the sub- division should be annexed to the city. The land is located about 350 feet east of the city limits, near the end of Indian Hill road SE. The plat had been approved earlier by Linn county, but re- quired approval from the because it is within two miles of the city limits. A committee report recom- mended against approval be- cause developer Jerome Pad- zcnsky plans to install individ- ual wells and septic tanks for houses built in the sub- division. The city engineering department recommended, because the area is very close to city services, that Pad- zensky petition for annexation and connect to city facilities. Several residents of the area appeared at the meeting to pro- test annexation. Padzensky said he is also opposed. Million Conservation Funds Sought DBS MOINES The Iowa conservation commission Tuesday, voted to ask the 1974 legislature for more than 512.5 million for capital improve- ments and for. million in supplemental operating appro- priations for the next two years. Among the capital improve- ments, ihe commission, asked for million' to develop a state resort complex on Lake Hath- bun near Centerville. The plan for the state resort on Lake Rathbun was developed about two years ago in a re- port to the Iowa development commission by the Midwest Re- search Institute of Kansas City, Mo. McGregor Area In addition to Lake Rathbun, the institute said the McGregor area on the Mississippi river in northeast Iowa and the Missouri river area around Council Bluffs would be worthy of de- velopment as tourist centers. Commission officials said Gov. Robert D. Ray supported the Lake Rathbun resort area plan and would include it.in his mes- sage to.the legislature. The commission also voted to ask the lawmakers for: million for the Open Spaces program. j million for construe-j tion of a new state fish hatch- ery at the Rathbun dam. million for the Pleas- ant Creek Lake project which would provide emergency cool- ing water for the Duane Arnold nuclear power plant under con- struction near Palo. million for the Brushy Creek state recreation area near Fort Dodge. million for the Volga -river slate recreation area near Fayette. million for the Big Creek state recreation area north of Des Moines. In addition, the commission asked for an additional 330 in operating funds for 1974, and requested million in similar funds for 1975. Com- missioners said they needed the extra funds because of in- creased operating costs. -White Papers- (Continued from Page 1.) term upward trend in milk prices. i Didn't Know of Gift He said he plans to have lots) Kor the first lime, the White of at least one acre in the said Nixon had no know! but if forced to from Associated billion and to restrict acquisi-i "The IKS might decide not to; A lions for 10 years.

(AP) President Nixon has been taking unannounced pleasure drives around the countryside during his stay in California. The edged White Nixon House acknowl- toak his second drive in as many days Tuesday but only after news reporters saw secret service agents rac- ing through San Clemente in two siren-saunding police cars and inquired if the President had been in an auto accident. Deputy Press Secretary Ger- ald Warren at first denied agents were passengers in the California highway patrol ve- hicles. Later he corrected him- self but said no emergency was involved. This led to speculation Nixon j might have set out in a hurry, I leaving some of his bodyguard to scramble in pursuit. Warren had disclosed earlier Tuesday that Nixon and his house guest C. G. "Bebc" Re- bozo, took a long unannounced drive Monday. Again Warren did so only in response to a re- not to proceed." lives Mid and involved were America Dairymen, Inc., Dairy Men, Inc. "Telling Truth, But.. After the White House state- ment was released, John But- terbrodt, president of AMPI, told newsmen in Chicago: "Nixon is telling the truth. Basically we had congress ready to propose and support a bill to raise the price support to 85 percent." But Butterbrodt said although Nixon has answered the ques- tion of the price support issue, he has still not answered why an anti-trust suit was filed against AMPI in January, 1972, after AMPI stopped contribu- tions lo the Nixon campaign. "We changed management in January, 1972, and felt we were not going to contribute to any presidential campaign so we stopped and were immediately hit with a Butterbrodt said. ITT Intervention The eight-page ITT statement said there was no relation be- tween an out-of-court settlement of an anti-trust case against the corporation and ITT's payment of as part of a pledge, to help underwrite a GOP conven- tion in San Diego. The case, brought in 1969. challenged ITT acquisitions of the Grinnell Corp., the Hartford Fire Insurance Co. and Canteen Corp. Colson, in a 'March 30, 1972, memo to H. R. Haldeman, then chief of the White House staff, suggested thai a 1971 memo from Ehrlichman to Mitchell might "directly involve the President" in the controversy that has surrounded the ITT set- tlement. In rebuttal, the White House pictured Ehrlichman as having prompted Nixon's intervention in the matter bv arguing, at a meeting on April 19, 1971, that appealing a decision against Ihe government in the Grinnell case would violate Nixon's conviction that anti-trust cases should not be based on attacking bigness for its own sake.

The Knight story said an ad- verse ruling on the San Cle- mente property "cost the First Family about in back taxes, plus interest at six percent a year." Deputy Director James W.

The academy, which has 32 full-time students, applied in Pecember for an exemption from state school standards that insist certified teachers be on the (acuity, and that the curric- ulum meets state requirements.

The school was founded in September by the local congre- gation to.provide what officials called educa- tion." Richard Ploeger, superin- tendent of the Mar.shall-Po- weshiek Joint County School System, said the hiring of Mrs. Schendel, would probably end questions about the school's fu- ture.
