VOLUME IB NUMMER : (ti* due npitto CITY FINAL IO CENTS lilt CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY It;, 1074 GRANT GASOLIN ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES RISE Vows Ban Of Agnew Protection WASHINGTON (UPI) -Comptroller General Elmer Staats, who as an officer of congress can halt spending of money he believes illegal, has told the treasury he will not allow any further use of federal funds to provide secret service protection for former Vicepresident Agnew. Staats told Treasury Secretary Shultz in a letter Friday that further protection would be illegal, and “future payments made for such purposes will be disallowed by my office.” Staats said the cutoff will be in effect Monday. “No Orders’’ A secret service spokesman said Saturday that Agnew would continue to receive protection “until the President orders the secretary of the treasury to order the secret service to stop. We have not received any such orders.” Agnew resigned Oct, IO while pleading no contest to a federal charge of income tax evasion. Since then, until Dec. 15, the General Accounting Office beaded by Staats estimated that his secret service protection cost the taxpayers nearly $90,000. Under repeated challenges by the GAO and Rep. Moss (D-Calif.) the treasury department has said President Nixon’s decision to provide round-the-clock protection for Agnew was “presumptively valid and lawful.” To West Coast Army Plea Applies if bpurned on rr Drug Curb Allocation WASHINGTON (UPI) - A federal judge, calling ‘‘offen-i^    A    W" O/ sive ’ the army’s contention that I I IA LL! ll I / an end to its European drug con-1 If W Fe ll I / O trol program would result in! chaos, has thrown its appeal out WASHINGTON (AP) — Retail of court.    j    gasoline    dealers    whose    alloca- Army lawyers submitted the tions have been cut more than appeal, along with a 5,000-word115 percent were told Saturday affidavit from Gen.
