The parcel, about seven-and one-half acres located generallj between C avenue NE, the pro posed 1-380 route, Fourth stree and Eighth" street', is part of the Cedar Lake urban renewal proj ect. The project must be closet out by June 30. Bids were invited on the lane three times, the latest lime on Wednesday. For the secont lime, no bids were received. The first time the land had apparently .been sold, but the deal fell through when delays in routing 1-380 made it impos- sible for the city to deliver title to the property. The interstate may be the problem this time, too, Planning and Redevelopment Director Don Salyer said Wednesday The land will become more, at- tractive to developers, he ex- plained, after the highway is built. Since the land can't be sold by he June 30 closeout date, a special grant has been prepared jy the federal department ol lousing and urban developmenl to cover the cost of the land and allow the books to be closed. When the city sells the land, the money will go directly to the federal government to re- place the grant. There is no cost to the city because of file failure to sell the land, Salyer said, except the money lost while the property is off the tax rolls. Neither is a there a time limit on when the grant must be repaid. Salyer said no invitation of >ids will be scheduled again until prospective buyers can be ocated.

What will happen if the proj- ect completion is delayed was not discussed at Wednesday's meeting. There is some question if the project will even be started, since commission approval is subject to the approval of the Durant town council for itsi share of the project. The bid for the project was about double the commission and the town council expected. The 1972 estimate, which was approved by the town council last month, listed the city's share as The commission's share for the 24- foot center portion of the road was estimated at The bid by Iowa Road Build- ers Co. of Des Moines was Thus, if as expected, the proportions remain the same, the city will have to pay for the project. In March, the Durant council approved the for the re- surfacing, even though at about the same time its petition to the commission noted that highway 6 was the only portland cemenl slrect available in town for dancing. Contracts Engineer Keith Davis told reporters the asphal surface will get hard enough so that it should not be sticky for the September Festival. At the meeting Wednesday, the commission also updated its policy on closing primary high- ways in towns to conform with its approval of the Durant high- way 6 closing. At the meeting last month, Chairman Rigler noted the poli- cy as it stood allowed closing highways in towns where "traf- fic is low." He said the vehicles per day east of Duranl could hardly be called low. A t its meeting Tuesday, Rigler proposed amending the 'Moulton rule" to also allow closing "whan the staff feels the closure will not adversely affect .hrough traffic materially." At last month's meeting, the laff pointed out that traffic on highway 6 is local, since inter- runs just north of Durant. They also said a.satis- 'actory detour is available in :own.

Disclosure Vote There had been some question about whether the committee would make the report public or wait until Nixon's tax lawyers bad presented arguments that Nixon's tax deductions were proper. The committee voted 9 to 1 to release the report with Sen. Carl Curtis (R-Neb.) cast- ing the dissenting vote. At the White House, Deputy Press Secretary Gerald Warren reversed a stand he had taken Tuesday when he declined to re- affirm a presidential pledge .to abide by whatever decision is made by the committee con- cerning a possible tax liability. "There is no change in' the President's view on this mat- Warren said Wednesday. President's Reply Rep. Wilbur Mills, vice-chairman of the com- mittee, told newsmen he under- stands the Presidents' counsel has filed a brief supporting its position. He said he would not object to giving the attorneys an opportunity to state their case, but that there was some feeling in the committee that this could lead to other requests for appearance and so involve the committee in extended bearings.
