UPI, NEW YORK TIMES PARIS (AP) President Nixon met Saturday with West- ern European leaders and stressed the need for stronger cooperation and consultation within the Atlantic alliance. The discussions could be a start toward making 1974 Wash- ington's "Year of The administration had hoped to de- vote major attention to Europe in 1973, but was sidetracked by other foreign and domestic mat- ters. The President's most impor- tant sessions lasting more than an hour each were with West German Chancellor Willy Brandt'and British Prime Min- ister Harold Wilson. Nixon also met with interim French President Alain Poher, Danish Premier Poul Harding and Italian President Giovanni Leone. He meets Sunday morn- ing with Soviet President Niko- lai Podgorny and Japanese Pre- mier Kakuei Tanaka. SALT Status In addition to transatlantic co- operation, Saturday's discus- sions also touched on the status of arms limitations negotiations between the U. S. and the Soviet Union, and the prospect of East- West troop reductions in Central Europe, according to informed sources. Nixon had flown to Paris to attend a memorial mass for the late French President Georges Pompidou. He originally was scheduled to return to Washing- ton on Saturday afternoon, but delayed his departure until Sun- day. Presidential aides Alexander Haig and Ronald Ziegler told re- porters the five leaders respond- ed to Nixon's points with "strong concurrence." But Haig said very little, if anything, was expected in the way of now machinery to carry out the President's hope for im- proved U. S.-European relations. Watergate He said that Nixon's tax trou- bles and the Watergate scandal were not discussed and that the leaders found it "inconceivable" that Nixon could be impeached. "If there was any one clear theme that came out of the Haig said, "it is that American leadership and Amer- ican vitality are vital and that in that context a viable presi- dency is a cornerstone" of U.S.- European relations.

WASHINGTON. (AP) Sena lor Lowell Weicker says he has evidence the White House spiec on a dozen major politicians and used the Internal Revenue Service to pry loose data on en- tertainers such as Frank Sina- tra and Sammy Davis, jr. Weicker said he also has White House and other Nixon administration documents to show that IRS intelligence was used to protect such "White House friends" as evangelist Billy Graham and movie star John Wayne once tax audits on them began. Weicker, a Republican member of the senate Water- gate committee, said he has ob tained other documents showin; the full extent of more than 5 political investigations conduct ed by the White House betwecr 1969 and 1972 by undercover po litical operative Anthony Ulase "'icz.

The staff of the joint commit- jtee on internal revenue taxa- tion, which Nixon asked to re- view his 1969-72 returns, said it also looked at the taxes paid in 1968. No Full Audil The 1968 study was necessary lo determine how the handling of Nixon's first gift of papers t< the government differed fron the handling of the second, much larger gift the next year, the staff report said. And it was wssible that a carryover of the 1968 charitable contribution de- duction would reduce the Prcs- dcnl's taxes in following years. The committee staff, however, did not audit the full 1968 re- urn, and Nixon has never made t public. The report said only hat the papers were appraised it and that Nixon took lie maximum allowable deduc- ion for charitable contributions, ncluding for thci in the deed were so restrictive that Nixon was not actually giv ing away the documents but giv- ing away a "future interest" in them. Discrepancy The President's 1968 lax re- turn said the papers were given free and clear with no restric- tions, but the deed itself provid- ed that as long as Nixon was President only he and those au- thorized by him in writing could have access to the papers or the right to copy them. Nixon also reserved the right lo change the restrictions at any. time during his lifetime and to grant access to any group or groups of persons by giving written notification to the ar chives.

The source, who asked to re- main anonymous, stressed that the fiery 32-year-old Libyan strongman- remains in charge of the armed forces, although he has relinquished some duties to Libyan Premier Abdel Salem Jalloud. The changes in the Libyan jovernment were first reported by Egypt's official Middle East news agency in Cairo, which claimed that Jalloud, Khadafy's 'ight-hand man, had stripped he colonel of power and pushed lira into a figurehead position.

The premier who is in 'aris for the memorial services for the late French President Georges Pompidou, declined to comment on the reports. It remained unclear whether Khadafy, who has ruled Libya with a tight grip since taking power in a coup four years ago had requested the changes or it he was gradually being eased out of power.

The next 12 to 15 months may bring some of the most explo- sive health costs in the na- tion's history. If price controls over health costs are allowed to expire on April 30, as is likely, con- sumers may see these kinds of increases in the fiscal year ending June Hospital charges will jump by 1C to 17 percent. Physician fees will go up about 9 percent. Nursing home charges will jump by 14 percent. The estimates arc Ihose of t h c Nixon administration, which had urged congress to continue price controls over the health industry, only to be rejected so far. Even with controls, hospital charges would have risen about 10 percent, doctors' fees 4 percent and nursing home charges 6.5 percent, the ad- ministration estimates. Cost to Public The public will have to pay an additional billion over Ihc current fiscal year, then another billion 'on lop of that in Ihc following year, the administration estimates. Consumers will find them- selves paying an additional billion in direct out-of-pocket expenses for services which would have been covered under price controls. This amount will rise to bil- lion additional in fiscal 1976. Medical insurance pre- miums would go up bil- lion in fiscal 1975, and spend- ing by state and federal gov- ernments would rise bil- lion. Caspar Weinberger, secre- tary of Health, Education and Welfare, said he believes the costs will be higher than thai. He said the estimates "imp- ly a substantial degree of re- straint which I hope to see." Weinberger said the cost in one year may be closer to billion, instead of billion. No "Free Market" He said the increased bill will add an enormous amount to every American's health bill, adding thai controls should be retained in the in- duslry. "We don't have a free mar- ket in that he said. Weinberger added that fail- ure of congress to extend con- trols over health costs in- creases the urgency for pas- sage of the administration's national health insurance plan. T h e American Medical Assn. did not dispute the ad- ministration's figures but said Ihat doctor's Ices have gone up only 7.3 percent since Au- gust, 1971, when controls began, while all services have gone up 11.2 percent. l-ate News Death; Editorials Cily Hall Report Card SECTION B Iowa News Frank Nye's Political Notps Television Table Political Calendar Food Marion Building Movies Record Reviews Farm SECTION C Social Around Ihc Town New Books Travel SECTION 0 Sports Oultloor Iowa Financial New York Stocks Wanl Ads Crnssword 9 9 to, 11 12-17 18-19 18 M-J1 1-2J 2 J 11 ;
