He related that Mitchell said le had been asked questions about Donald Nixon, jr., the President's nephew, who worked for Vesco, and Edward Nixon, the President's brother, who was connected with the transfer of Vesco's.contribution. Concealed Request At one point Tuesday, Dean testified that he concealed from President Nixon a request lasl year: from Mitchell. The -witness said the request was for "ac- tion" by Mitchell's successor Atty Gen Richard Klemdienst against the federal grand jury that eventually indicted the two defendants. The testimony was based on a White House tape, as was subse quent testimony relating to Scans The goveinment charges tha: Stans tried Versco's contribution by failing tfrrepor it under a new law that became effective-- April 1972, three days before-the money change hands j Stans then was chairman o the Finance Committee elect the President. It his claim that he acted' in accon with, legal advice .that Yesco's pledge of the money .before ,thi reporting deadline made the concealment legal. "Strong Case" Referring to a White House conversation of Feb 28, 1973 Dean was asked on cross exami nation: "On that date, didn't you in form the President of the JJnitei States, 'f think we have'a gooi strong case that the donor of the money, Robert Vesco, had relm quished control of the money and constructive possession b the money was in the hands o the finance "Yes, I Dean replied. But the'..government later "Wasn't the basis o your statement to the Presiden at that time what Mr. Stans tol( "That. is repliec Dean. Cash Demanded? Also at issue in the trial is whether Stans demanded tha the be in cash, so i could be traced less easily. One count of perjury against him is based 'on Stans' be: fore the grand jury that he never made such a demand. Dean was asked under cross examination, "Didn't you in form the President that the long and short of it was that Vesco was after the President'? brother to find out from Mr Stans whether he wanted the contribution in .cash or checks and Edward Nixon said Mr. Stans replied: 'I really don'l care whether it is in cash or "Yes, replied Dean. "Is that not the he was asked. "It's .the truth as I know it from Mr. Slans and Edward Dean said. BROSH CHAPEL Ccdiir Itnplds nMl In I'nhltr.

Thaler LONDON (UPI) Because of ack of support, the Soviet Jnion has shelved a plan to call world conference this year to ry to excommunicate China rom the Eociety of world com- munism, Communist diplomatic ources said Tuesday. The sources said oilier Com- munist parties either failed to upnort the Soviet plan or out- ight opposed it. Russia's European allies have warned her that a world conferr ncc would only deepen the split with China without providing a onvincing vote in favor of her xpulsion from the world Com- munist camp, the sources said. Put Off Plan The Kremlin has reluctantly yielded and put off its plan vithout abandoning it al- ogethcr. Moscow may call in- lead a smaller conference to iscuss other problems, the ources said. Those who opposed the larger world meeting included Yugo- slavia, Romania, North Korea, lorth Vietnam and the Italian larty. Korea and Vietnam are oo close to China to risk an open hostile posture against Peking. The Sino-Soviet conflict has jeen going from bad to worse. The two Communist giants lave stepped up the propaganda jattle against each other. Mos- cow has been saying that China is no longer a Communisl country under Chairman 'Mao Tse-tung Peking claims that Moscow has long left the path o: genuine Marxist-Leninism Border Talks The four-year Smo Sovie border talks remain adjournec without any progress having been made, according to officia sources The Soviet negotiating mission has stayed in Peking but its chief delegate returne; to Moscow The annual talks on border river navigation which in the past produced some agreemen have also been adjourned with out accord. The Chinese have arrested a number of "Russians recently charging them with spying The Chinese continue to claim that the Soviets are reinforcing their troops and armor along the Chinese border and say some '50 Soviet divisions an now concentrated there wit] rockets and warplanes. Moscow has rejected these charges.

Renewal Unit Okays More Housing Units The urban renewal board rec- ommended Wednesday at least 270 additional leased housing units be authorized in Cedar Rapids. The city is now authorized to administer 220 units. Under the leased housing program, per- sons and families who qualify (based on income and size of family) pay a percentage of the rent for 'their residences, up to 20 percent of their gross in- come. The city leases housing units rom landlords, limn .sublets hem to tenants, with the re- mainder of the rent made up by ederal funds from the depart- ment 'of housing and urban de- velopment The city had requested autho- for 180 additional units n January, 1973, but at that ime funds for the program were frozen. Funds Released The funds have recently been released for units nation- vide. There have been some changes in the program, which s now sponsored by 'the federal housing administration "Basically, there is an'. ncreased responsibility between the tenant and the explained Bob Madsbn, assis- tant director of planning and urban development. Under the new guidelines, participating landlords will ne- jotia'te leases directly-with the tenants. The housing program will pay the landlord its share of the rent, but he must collect the tenant's share from the tenant. Responsibilities The landlord will be responsi- ble for upkeep and maintenance and the tenant will be responsi- ble for damages. Now, those matters are the responsibility ol the housing program There -is also, under the new rules, more emphasis on con slruction of new housing units for use in the program Dale Bryant, director ol the program, said there is a demon strated need for at least 365 ad ditiohal units, because tha many people are now on waiting lists for 'currently availabl units.
