Riley said the original bill 'contained a provision that the andlord would have to pay five percent on damage deposits, the same amount the tenant would eceive if he deposited the amount in a bank.

Hughes didn't enturc a prediction on whether impeach the warranty deed for certain rea jesiate'and bill of sale for per sonal property he says he pur chased. Severson says that on Marc! 4, 1973, the'defendant orallj agreed to sell him the Elberon Elevator, part of four lots on which it is located, and it: buildings and equipment. Severson .states he was to pay for the property under terms of the oral con- tract, with downpay- ment and the balance of by April 1, 1973, at which tine he was to get pos- session subject to defendant's right to store grain there until it could be delivered. Severson says the oral agree- ment was made between him and Larry F. Mosebach, for merly of Tama, after Mosebach lad conferred with and received approval of Robert Blythe, Cedar Rapids, they being the sole stockholders, directors and officers of the elevator business. According to Severson's peti- ion, he gave Mosebach his per- sonal check for which he says was retained until Dec. 6, 973, when he was given a check iy Mosebach which he has not cashed. Severson stales that prior to April 1 and prior to the time he took possession of the prop- erty, the elevator property was partially destroyed by fire and the defendant has received a settlement from its insurance fire loss. company -for the Severson alleges he has given efendant the balance of the lurchase price, demanded a varranty deed wifh abstract of itle plus a bill of sale for the ersonal property and has de- nanded an accounting and set- 'ement of the insurance, pro- eeds from the fire loss. He laims the defendant has re- used to convey to him the real estate and personal property old to him. Severson asks that defendant e required to assign to' him a ease between the defendant and le railroad company; that de- cndant account to him for the money received from the insur- nce company for fire loss; or, lat the court order the insur- nce proceeds to be used for epair and reconstruction of all uildings and equipment dam- ged by fire so that the proper- can be conveyed, to Severson n the same condition it was in ch 4, 1973, when the oral ales agreement was made.

"I don't think the people want the President Hughes told The Gazette in nn interview, adding that the situa- tion is "incredible." Not Cooperating He explained that even though the people feel Nixon is not car- rying out his promise to cooper- ate with Special Watergate Prosecutor Leon Jaworski, they don't want Nixon impeached. "The people seem to be so conditioned to shock that thej can't react any more to corrup- ion and to people in high office icing convicted and sent to jail. "With the energy crisis and :he war in the Middle East, their minds are on other things." Responding to another ques- ion, Hughes said he feels the Deputies Again Drag River in Search for Man Dragging operations on the Cedar river were resumed Sat- urday morning in the search for )onald Van Steenis, a Cedar lapids business man who disap- leared Tuesday afternoon. Linn Sheriff Walter Grant has canceled days off for 14 depu- ies assigned to the case. Van Steenis, 32, of 1427 Paw- nee drive NW, an antique auc- tioneer, was last seen at 2 p.m. Tuesday. His pickup truck was found at quarry located about six miles ast of town and south of high- vay 30. Sheriff Grant reported two ets of footprints led down to the iver bank. The set identified as Van Steenis' disappear at the river's edge. The other set re- turned to the area where the truck was found and then dis- appeared. Foul play is suspected in the I Dun'l Itefjret It -I don't regret spending the money to protect him if he needs continued Hughes, who is leaving his senate post early next year to become a religious worker. "Legally there is no justifica- tion for spending the money. But morally there is. He would have the right as a private citi- zen to ask police protection if he felt his life was in danger. Money would he spent to pro- vide that protection." On another subject, Hughes said Second District Congress- John Culver of Cedar liapids has his wholehearted support to be his successor. Culver is the lone Democratic candidate for Hie Hughes senate seat so far. Stale Sen. George Milligan (R-Des Moines) and Slate Rep. David.Stanley (R- iVluscatine) are after the Repub- lican nomination. Same County Asked if he thought the fact Culver comes from the same county Linn as Iowa's junior U.S. senator, Dick Clark of Marion, will hurt Culver's chances, Hughes replied: I don't think if men are honest it makes any difference. Look at Jack Miller and Harold Hughes we were only 50 miles apart." This was a refer- ence to the fact that former U.S. Sen. Jack Miller, who served four years with Hughes in the senate, lived in Sioux City while Hughes' hometown is Ida Grove, about 50 miles to the east in northwest Iowa. Hickcnloopcr, Martin He also mentioned that the late Senators B. B. Hickenlooper of Cedar Rapids and Tom Martin of Iowa City, both Republicans, lived less than 30 miles apart.
