Khan Degree CINCINNATI (AP) Israeli Police received a complaint from two girls, students at Franklin junior high school, that a man walked through the school's halls clad only in an undershirt and socks. The girls said Ihe streaker pulled on a pair of slacks at the end of the hall and disap- peared down a stairway. Streaking is a pastime that has recently gained favor on college campuses. Cedar Rapids police, who take a dim view of streaking, say Ihc man in Tuesday's in- cident could be charged with indecent exposure or con- tributing to the deliquency of a minor for his stroll. (Continued from Page 1.) reports represented a "gross distortion of its contents." Not "Accusatory" Philip Lacovara, counsel for the special prosecutor's office, disclosed at the court session that the sealed report is not ac- cusatory. At the same time he 'noted that it is pertinent to the house impeachment inquiry. Lacovara, in supporting trans mission of the report to the house, said precedents would not bar such action even in the case of accusatory present- ments "even though that is not what is at issue in this case." Lacovara also said it would be "an unreasonable and unrea- listic construction" of grand jury secrecy rules to hold that "the- impeachment .process which is of tremendous impor- tance to this country should be excluded." In addition to lawyers from the White House the special prosecutor's office and the 10 use. judiciary committee, counsel seven defendants were present for Wednesday's rearing. Opposes Release John Wilson, counsel for former presidential aides H. R Haldeman and John Ehrlich man, already has notified1 Siric :y letter that he would-. argUL :hat the grand jury had no au !hority to issue its sealed report In his letter Wilson said the jrand jury "has no power to do other than indict or ignore. I may not make special reports." Wilson contended the sealed report "prejudices our client: and should be expunged or re The Iowa senate Wednesday voted a major change in the house ver- sion of a proposed revision in Ihe state school aid foundation formula. Adopted by a 35 to 14 vote was a sliding scale for allocating state aid to school districts with declining enrollments rather than a fixed scale as passed by Sheriff: Ruling Bars-Ehforceinent Of Liquor Laws Sheriff Walter Grant believes an injunction in a case involving Ihe Salty Dog tavern west of Cedar Rapids bars him from en- forcing state liquor laws al the tavern. Linn District Judge August Honsell, jr., who ordered the in- junction, told The Gazette Wednesday it was intended only to bar the sheriff from serving papers ordering the closing of the tavern. the house earlier this session. Under the fixed scale each of Iowa's 451 school districts with a declining enrollment would receive 1974-75 state aid He suggested Ihe sheriff should contact his legal ad- viser, the county attorney, about the matter. nuum ni-civc siaie ami Tnc replied that unless based on 98 percent of its 1973-74 'lhc wording of the injunction is efirollmcnt even though its losslcnanSed'lle is going to consider of students may be far more! nimse'f "nder a court order not than two percent. Sen. Willard Hanson (R- Ccdar senate schools committee chairman, argued that this rewarded schools with the greatest enrollment losses with more state aid than they were entitled to. Under the sliding scale pro- posed by this committee, Han- sen said, each school with a declining enrollment would re- ceive state aid more in propor- tion to the loss of students suf- fered. Example Given For example, if a school had a 1973-74 enrollment of 100 stu- dents based on state aid of per student in 1973, it would re- ceive per student if it suf- :ered an enrollment decline of :wo students in 1974-75 under the house's fixed sealer It would re- ceive the same under the senate's sliding scale. if the school lost 15 stu- dents it would receive the same per student for 1974-75 under the fixed scale but only, per student under the sen-; ate's sliding scale. Hansen told the senate '.that' he most difficult adjustment or.schools of all sizes..to make nvolves enrollment decrease of up to two percent. Yet, he continued, .under the Cutter's ixed scale school districts with Workmen local urned to the grand jury he court's instructions witl tha heir act was wholly'illegal and mproper." Leaks Cited Wilson expressed concern that material given to the house o.mmittee would quickly leak lo ews media. "If there are more leaks in le District of Columbia than in he district courthouse, it is in Wilson said. "The :aks up there are big enough to Irive a truck through." Wilson also argued that only _ ourt "in the real sense of the 'ord" can obtain grand jury in- ormation. He specifically ex- luded a congressional coinmit- ee, including an impeachment nquiry, from his definition of a ourt.

Nixon Will Veto Education Bill WASHINGTON (AP) Pres- dent Nixon said Tuesday that e would be forced to veto ending education bill because crtain provisions on funding or grants "would create a bu- to enforce liquor laws at the tavern. He said he can read the order and has as much sense as the county attorney. Part of the injunction states the sheriff is enjoined from "interfering (with) or hinder- ing the sale of beer or alcohol- ic beverages" at the tavern. Grant said the order should read the "legal sale" rather than "the sale." The county board of super- 'isors revoked the tavern's beer and liquor licenses last month after a hearing based on a com- plaint by the sheriff. The injunc- tion bars the enforcement of that revocation while an appeal is pending with the state beer and liquor control commission.

Yet if 'we eliminate dividends and fringe Benefits, real average weekly earnings were down 1.6 percent in 1973 the effect of an -8.8 )ercent increase in consumer jrices against a 7.2 percent in- :rease in average hourly earn- ngs."
