The preliminary hearing for George Junior .Nowlin, 31, rural Keystone, was closed to report- ers and all spectators as was a similar hearing in Cedar Rapids. Defendant Atwell Junior Con- ner, 29, of near Bertram, did not appeal- in Jones district court. Authorities said his attorney was ill. The two men arc accused of raping and murdering Maureen Connolly, 17, southeast of Ana- mosa, and then robbing and murdering Michael Servey, 18. southeast of Cedar Rapids. Wednesday's hearing for Now- lin didn't begin until a.m. It was still not over by Two highway patrolmen had been called for courtroom secu- rity, but Nowlin's attorney asked if they would possibly be witnesses later on in the case. The Jones county attorney said he could not say for sure if the patrolmen would be wit- nesses, so Conmey asked them to leave. Anamosa Police Chief Dick Stivers was then called to pro- vide courtroom security. The county attorney said he would not be called as a witness in the murder trial. Only several other persons aside from reporters were pres- ent for the hearing. The Jones county grand jury will convene Friday. The pre- liminary hearing for Conner was continued to April .11 at 1 p.m. Nowlin's bail on the rape charge was continued at No bail was set on the murder charge Seized Items Can Be Held, Judge Rules Items seized under search warrants on the residence of George- Nowlin, rural Keystone, accused in Linn county of the 'slaying and robbing of Michael Servey, 18, can be held'for pos- sible use as evidence. District court Judge Harold Victor, in an order filed day afternoon, held that "no person shows specific and legal cause why the items seized pur- suant to the search warrani should not be forfeited and held by the state to be used as evi- dence in certain criminal prose- cution."

(See story Page 2CI Hill said he learned "by scut- tlebutt" the hearing had been scrubbed after he and Sen. Joan Orr (D-Grinnell) had gone to some length 'to line up speakers against the bill. Week's Notice? Hill said he also was trying to arrange his schedule so he could attend the Thursday hear- ing when he learned it had been called off. Hill suggested that Riley give a week's notice if the hearing is rescheduled. Riley answered Hill, ex- plaining he has set the hear- ing at the convenience of those requesting it and that Thursday was the only avail- able day for one this week. Riley said the request for the hearing came from Davenport and he offered to hold the hear- ing there, in keeping with his program of "taking government to the people rather than sitting here in .the ivory tower." He called off the hearing, Riley said, after learning some subcommittee members were unhappy about it. He said Sena- tors Bass Van Gilst (D-Oskaloo- sa) and Karl Nolin subcommittee members, had told him they didn't think 'there needed to be a hearing. Van Gilst Denial This brought Van Gilst lo his feet to deny he had told Riley there was no need for a hearing. He was irked, Van Gilet said, only in that Riley had not con- sulted the subcommittee members before scheduling the hearing.
