Subpoena for Nixon Goes Astray in Mail LOS ANGELES (AP) The U.S. Postal Service is trying lo trace a missing registered letter containing a 'Los Angeles judge's subpoena for the testi- mony of President Nixon.

Gazette Leased Wires WASHINGTON Eight of the nine European Common Market countries decided Tuesday to support a U. S. proposal for a conference on the cost and shortage of oil between Arab oil states and oil-importing nations of the world. Only France, which has pur- sued a. go-it-alone policy in deal- ing with the Arabs and wants to buck the energy issue to the U.N., disagreed with the Com- mon Market position. 'The other European states, at a caucus preceding Tuesday's final session of the 13-nation Washington energy conference, agreed to back Secretary of State Kissinger's call for inter- national cooperation unity of action. "Political Issue" "It .is more than a procedural dispute, it is a political said Helmut-Schmidt, the West German finance minister at an impromptu news conference. Schmidt declined to elaborate, saying that he was "under some restraint" not to discuss public- ly the wide gap between France and the other eight Common Market countries while there was still some hope of compro- nise. Italian Finance Minister Ugo La Malta said his country is op- posed to bringing the energy issue before the United Nations as proposed by France and Al- geria. There is no point in dis- cussing the energy problems in the presence of countries which have no energy problem for the time being, La Malfa said. Cooperation The U.S., represented by Kis- singer and Treasury Secretary Shultz, is pleading for complete cooperation and promising -as- sistance to its friends and allies who are far more dependent on Arab oil than is this country. Michel Jobert, France's foreign minister, does not want to hear of such close coopera- tion which, he contends, is im- possible because the'U. S., a major oil producer, cannot be compared with other countries School Board To Seek Million Bond Issue By Judy Daubcnmier A million bond issue lo remodel the district's four older junior highs was approved by the Cedar Rapids Community school board Monday night. The board cautiously agreed to put the matter before voters without including air-condition- ing for the classroom areas of the buildings. Staff members were instruct- ed to work with Frank Bar- vinek, co-chairman of a citizens Other School Board Stories on Pnge 7 planning committee for remo- deling the four schools, to circu- late petitions asking for a bond election. About signatures arc needed lo call for an elec- tion. Million Cut By deleting air-conditioning from the classroom areas of the buildings, the cost of the remo- deling was cut million from the original million estimate. The central core of all four buildings will be air-conditioned because areas such as the audi- torium and instructional media centers will be Today's Chuckle A bargain is something thnt would cost a lot more if you "hod nny use for it. coovncmi Air-conditioning could be added to Ihe classroom areas later. "Although I prefer to have the entire said board member Steve Severn, "I be- lieve our best bet (for passage of a bond issue) lies in deferring the air-conditioning." The million figure for remodeling Roosevelt, McKin- ley, Wilson and Franklin in- cludes remodeling the physical education and locker room areas, the auditoriums and in- structional media centers, cafe- terias, small gyms, classrooms, corridors, floor coverings, site work, and improvements to the heating planls. Others New The district's other two junior high schools, Taft and Harding, were built in 1965. Passage of a ?7.8 million bond issue 'would raise the millage rale about one mill ncxl year, but after that the millage rale would decline because previous bonds will be paid off in a few years. if Ihe bond issue is passed, remodeling could be finished in the fall of 1977, school officials estimate. Without a bond issue and using 2.5 mill money, remo- deling all four buildings would take 12 or 13 years. No date was set (or n vote on the measure.

Jobert, in an uncompromising speech, Monday said that Europe must be free to tackle, the'' problem and that it was "not desirable to establish a sys- tem of preliminary consultations wjth the other big consuming such as the U.S. He also Kissinger on another point. Kissinger asked for "agreed rules of con- duct" in dealings with the pro- ducers. The consumers, Jobert said, should not try to define a 'new code let us not seek to establish or to impose a new world energy order." "Coordinating Group" Kissinger suggested the con- ference set up some follow-up mechanism he called it a "coordinating group" but Jo- bert did not like this idea either. "France, for her part, would not guarantee such a structure, be it working' groups, an action group for he said. Kissinger, as many times be- fore in. speeches and press con- ferences, again was critical about bilateral deals such as Jobert concluded in two recent tours of the Middle East. "The only result of un- managed bilateralism will be to bid up prices perhaps even beyond present levels, and to stabilize them at levels that will ruin lhex countries making the bilateral arrangements before they ruin everyone Kis- singer told the conference. A few hours later, at a While House dinner for the ministers, President Nixon backed up Kis- singer on this point. It might be good politics to make such deals over the short term, "but over the long term it is bad states- Nixon said in his toast.
