CITY FINAL VOLUME 92-NUMBER 37 CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1974 PRICE RISE SHOWS ASSOCIATED PRESS, NEW YOKK TIMES. LETUP Judge: 'Cut Out Arguing Over Dean' WASHINGTON (AP) A fed- eral judge said Friday that he hopes President Nixon and the special Watergate prosecutor, Leon Jaworski, will stop dis- cussing whether or not former White House Counsel John Dean has told the truth. U.S. District Judge Gerhard Gesell said he hopes "every ef- fort will be made by appropri- ate authorities to stop discuss- ing matters before the court." Gesell noted that Nixon, in a letter to him urging him to withhold White House tapes, had "indicated his concern with pre-trial publicity." The issue arose when a law- yer for Dwight Chapin, former White House aide, charged that Jaworski had violated court rules by. commenting favorably on Dean's credibility during a television interview two weeks ago. "Much Jaworski's comments were part of a dialog that began when Senate Republican Leader. Hugh Scott said he hadvseen evi- dence at the White House that indicated Dean lied to the sen- ate Watergate committee when he said he thought Nixon was aware of the cover-up before March Gesell called Jawoiski before him and said he was aware that highly unfavorable remarks had been made about a government witness "by persons in positions much higher than your own." But the judge added that that did not excuse Jaworski's televi- sion remarks and "any further lapse would have increasingly serious consequences..." "It seems to me your sense ought to keep you off talk Gesell said. Motion Denied The judge said he has no au- thority over Nixon or Scott. Gesell then denied a motion by Chapin to dismiss charges against him on the basis of un- fair pre-trial publicity. He also denied a request for the transcript of the tape of a (Continued: Page 3, Col. 6.) "No Desire for Confrontation" KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. (AP) The White House, while drawing a firm line against surrendering further Watergate tapes to the special Watergate prosecutor Leon Jaworski, said Friday tha it has "no desire to move to the point of confrontation" with him. Press Secretary Ronald Ziegler told newsmen it is Pres- ident Nixon's desire that Ja- worski proceed with his inves- tigations "quickly and without further delay." Ziegler also issued a state- ment by James St. Clair, Nix- on's special counsel for Water- gate, that a Jaworski request for 40 additional tapes plus doc- uments would delay grand jury deliberations "many months." Later Ziegler told a reporter there was "no intention or con- templation whatsoever" of fir- ing Jaworski.

Sharply higher wholesale costs for farm products, Indus- rial commodities, consumer inished goods and fuels pushed he wholesale price index up by a seasonally adjusted 3.1 per- cent, a rise exceeded only by :he record 6.2 percent of last August. If January's rate is comput- ed on an annual basis, it comes out to an annual rate of inflation of 37.2 percent. Wholesale prices, accelerating in the past few have risen at an'annual rate of 32.3 percent in the past three months, a record. In the past 12 months, they have gone up 20.8 percent, the second highest rise for any 12-month period since October, 1947.

Thursday night, the San Fran- cisco Chronicle and television itation KQED also reported authorities were seeking De- Freeze, who escaped from Sole- dad while serving a term for robbery, assault and possession of stolen checks. The Chronicle said the man who called himself "Cinque" in a tape recorded message to the Hearst family on Tuesday was actually the leader and founder of the SLA.

Higher Marks The commission didn't say, but it appeared to give higher marks for performance to the stales than to Ihe federal gov- ernment. For example: "Direct response to the crisis of confidence came first from state and local governments... In the course of the year, nearly half the slates passed legislation dealing with campaign funding, ethics or secrecy in govern- ment." By contrast, it continued: "AI the federal level, direct reaction to the startling events of the year was cautious and limited consisting more of rhetoric than action." The report said a number of states enacted laws to curtail government secrecy, while in Washington "the strains for access to government informa- tion was perhaps greatest, with the most meager results."

Dr. ScrVass took Julie to Dr. Sprague Gardiner, one of the state's leading gynecologists, who found substantial internal bleeding and had her admitted to the medical center. Dr. SerVaas said the opera- tion should not affect Julie's ability lo bear children. inflation shows no letup for the onaimer: Unadjusted The Bureau of Labor Statis- tics said wholesale prices in January actually rose at a monthly rate of 3.5 percent be- fore adjustment for seasonal in- fluences. Prices of farm products and processed foods and feeds jumped 5.1 percent on a season- ally adjusted basis; industrial commodities 2.3 percent and consumer finished goods 2.8 per- cent. The bureau said the wholesale cost of fuel accounted for al- most 40 percent of the jump in industrial commodities prices, with refined petroleum products leaping by 7.7 percent and crude oil 22 percent. But fuels were not the only commodities rising sharply. Non-ferrous metals were up sharply. So were prices for chemicals, paper products and machinery.
