VOLUME 92-NUMBER 59 CITY FINAL 35 CENTS CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, SUNDAY, MARCH 10, 1974 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES Teleohoio EHRLICHMAN ARRIVES Former White House domestic affairs adviser John Ehrlichman was framed by two policemen as he arrived at federal court in Washington, D.C., Saturday to clead inno- cent to Watergate-related conspiracy charges. H. R. Haldeman, John-Mitchell, Charles Colspn, Robert Mardian, Kenneth Parkinson and Gordon Strachan, all former Nixon associates, also pled innocent. First :Nsxon Tapes to House Panel WASHINGTON (UPI) The White House delivered the first batch of Watergate tapes and documents to the house judici: ary committee Friday evening for its impeachment inquiry on President Nixon, it was dis- closed Saturday. John Doar, the committee's chief impeachment counsel, told UPI Saturday that the panel received the first of White House materials it had request- ed, and that some of the docu- ments were from "federal de- partments." Doar did -not 'elaborate, but syndicated columnist Jack An- derson reported that the cartons delivered to the Capitol late Fri- day included documents from WESTGATE A 12-year-old boy was killed and his father and another man injured Satur- day afternoon in -the collision of a milk truck and car. Dead is Duane Wilharm, route two, Oelwcin. Authorities said the accident happened about 3 p.m. at Hie intersection of high- way 295 and county road W-14, three miles east of here. The youth's father, Donald Wilharm, argo imposed during the Oc- ober Middle East war. Oil industry sources in the igyptian capital said, however, hey doubted the.whole boycott vould be lifted. They said the Arab oil ministers Blight ease he embargo to the extent of .reating the U. S. like other Western nations now subject to lie 15 percent production cut ieen urging an easing of the oil embargo as a "gesture" in re- turn for the U. S. efforts. "Implementation" Al Ahram said the lifting of ;he embargo would be "imple- mentation of a decision adopt- ed" at last month's conference in Algiers of the heads of state of Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia and Algeria. But it did not spell out that decision. The oil ministry spokesman said oil ministers from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi Qatar and Bahrain already have advised Egyptian authorities they would be arriving in Cairo Saturday .or Sunday. He also said Syria, which u] to now has publicly opposed a lifting of the embargo, has sail it would attend. .he Arab oil producers have maintained. "Serious Split" But Middle East oil sources said the scheduled meeting faces "a potentially serious the issue of lifting the embargo on the U. S. The sources said Libya, Al geria and Iraq have, refused to take part in the Cairo .meeting. Iraq's official hews agency an- nounced late Saturday that Iraq s opposed to any efforts to lift or even ease the embargo and :hus would not attend. Libya, backed by 'Algeria, :ried to have the conference leld in the Libyan capital of Tripoli next Wednesday. Thi sources said these three coun :ries might go through with a 'counter-conference" in Tripol :o oppose any lifting of the em )argo that might be decided in Even if the three Arab nations ;o through with their plans to ippose lifting the embargo, oi :ourees indicated a Cairo deci ;ion backed by Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf states vould be effective. Single Item The oil sources said the move o lift the boycott stemmed from U.S. Secretary of State Kis inger's diplomatic efforts in the diddle East. Al Ahram, which often re- [eels official government poli- y, said the ministers wqulc onfine themselves to a single lem a review of the Arab oi iluation in the light of all dev- lopments in the Middle East ince Ihe oil ministers last met n Kuwait Dec. 24-25. These developments would in- lude Kissinger's prodigious ef- orls to bring about troop disen- agcment on Ihe October war onts. Since last January, Egyptian President Sadat has Labeling, Cuts, Trimming Shopping for Meat Made By Al Swcgle Here's a tip for you home- makers the next time your husband with a smug look on his face complains lo you about how much you're spending on meal. Let him go shopping and Iry lo do belter. This reporter tried it, with the bencfil of all the adver- tised price quotations of six stores carried in The Gazelle since January, 1973. H was quite nn education. Al first the assignment looked easy, because meat prices do vary with Iho sea- son. The status symbol incut, the T-biine slcilk, for example, is poptilnr In (he summer, mid (Icimuul pushes up the' price, Hoiisls are winter so Ihc best roast buys should be in the summer. Hams arc holiday favorites, and prices move upward then. But there is more lo meat pricing than that. Occasionally you can save yourself some money by doing your own I rimming. You can save, for example, 40 ccnls n pound by boning your own loin roast. Then, loo, labeling is a problem. For example, I had a prob- lem figuring out what a chuck ronst was, bill then I had Ihe same trouble wilh ham, ham- burger and loins, for Hint mat- ter. Chuck roasts Illuslrale Ihe point. The luird part is comparing Ihe price of chuck rousl in one advertisement with u blade or arm cut chuck roast featured in another advertisement. Then there's a seven-bone chuck roast and a boneless chuck roast lo further confuse .matters. The same can be said about Ihc difference between ground beef, ground chuck and ground round, technically all hamburger. They've gol lo come up with uniform labeling before we First of n Scr.Vw VV.'WWWWWV rfVV men do Ihe shopping for meat. Well, we overcame Ihat problem, and we established Ihe cheapest price quotations for chuck ronst nt each of Ihe six stores. The lowest priced meat must he the best buy. rlghl? Wrong. Retail meal can be cut up in different ways, so Ihat at times the consumer can be paying for more bone and fat than at other limes. The difference in the amount of fat on a cut of meat can mean whether one cut is a belter buy over another. "Specials can be mislead- Eldon Hans, Cedar Rapids area extension live- stock specialist, said. "Meat managers leave uniie irlm on Ihdr cuts when their margin is light, ami re- move more when Hie price moves higher. "This is one of Ihe ways meat arc able lo show n profit." This indicates that some standard government or vol- untary system needs lo be de- veloped lo market meat simi- lar to the grade and yield marketing system used al. Ihe livestock market level. The grade and yield system pays farmers for the actual amount of salable carcass meat each animal produces. Aii animal with a meaty carcass receives a higher price lhan one carrying a great deal of waste, fat and bone. A similar voluntary syslcm could be devised at Ihe retail level wilh consumers paying premiums for retail cuts wilh less bone and fat. One thing Hint form editor of an agriculturally oriented daily newspaper finds is that Ihe price of livestock goes up and down. And tlicrc were some sharp (Continued on i'lige 21A, Col. Simon: End Could Mean Price Hike WASHINGTON (AP) Fe eral energy chief William Simo said Saturday lifting of the Ara oiJ embargo would end long ser vice station lines but would no necessarily stop the' rise in thi iriee of gasoline. But Simon scoffed at the no- ion that increased gasoline allo- cations this month are cutting nto supplies intended for this summer. "Now the dooms- dayers have switched to gaso- he said. In an interview in his-office, Simon said he continues to give the same answer about the odds of gasoline rationing. "There is a better than 50-50 chance, even if the embargo remains, that we won't have to institute this bur- den on the American he said. "We believe we can handle the shortfall with our allocation he said. "Thing of Past" Even if the embargo remains in effect, the energy office can keep the gasoline lines down by equitable allocation among the states, he said. "If the embargo ends, the long lines will be a thing of the Simon said in response to a question. The lines have been noticeably shorter in hard-hil areas in recent days because ol increased allocations. Simon said lifting the em- bargo would bring a greater percentage of higher-price foreign oil into the nation, tending to push up prices of refined products such as gaso- line. But he declined to say how much the energy office, which controls gasoline prices, would allow the price to rise. The price of gasoline would be lighcr in areas depending more icavily on imported oil, such as Vew -England, if the embargo is ifted, he noted. No Idea Simon said he had no idea if he embargo would be lifted when Arab oil ministers meet in Cairo Sunday to discuss the question. Asked if he would take the post of treasury secretary if it vere offered lo him, Simon said, "As far as any job in this government is concerned, I vould do whatever the Pree- dent asked me to do." lie said le would do so out of "service o my country."

The voice said the Hearst empire "aims to divide (he people by being .deceitful." She said that people were being given food intend- ed for animals.

Miss Hearst's voice came on the tape for about 11 minutes, but it too, was almost inaudi- ble. However, she asked her "not to aid the FBI in their investigation. Only the FBI and certain people can ;ain anything by my death." In another part of 'the tape, Miss Hearst said, "If anything wppens to me, it is because Hie FBI separated its intentions :rom mine."
