Convention Chairman Henr; Madden twice asked delegate; to vote on the roll call request and twice the convention vote( down the request. He then re versed himself, saying the issui was not debatable. The confusion was augmented by a supper hour desire of some delegates to grab a sandwich There was a short delay as ser geants-at-arms rounded chomping delegates, from the downstairs armory. Delay on Delegates Put off to the end of the con vention was the matter of se lecting delegates to the May district convention at Maquoke ta, and the June 15 state con vention at Ames. Under new Democratic rules, there is no quota system in de- termining delegate represent- ation, but some weighing must be given to sex, minority groups, various age groups and economically disadvantaged. Early in the convention, the Democratic delegates over- whelmingly voted not to send delegates to the district and state conventions backing spe- cific candidates. This followed speeches by Mi- chael Blouin, Harry Sullivan, C. J. Adams and Martin Jensen, all running for the Democratic nomination for Second district congressman; and William Gan- non, James Schaben and Clark Rasmussen, all seeking the party's gubernatorial nomina- tion.

Sheriff Grant said a recent studv bv John Hopkins universi- ty claimed (hat continued use of marijuana is more dangerous than use of alcohol.

He said people die from drinking alcohol, "but none have ever died from mari- juana." of the plank said it indeed meant homosexuality. "We don't ask you to tolerate homo said another propo nent, "but are saying it's none of your damn business." The convention adopted by a sizeable margin a plank op- posing the death penalty after voting down amendments which would allow capital punishment in cases of rape mutilation murder, premedi- tated murder and other high capital crimes. One Linn county official urged the convention not to bring into arguments on either side of the death penalty issue the circum- stances and names of those in- volved in two recent local murder cases. While the platform committee did not report it out, the con- vention gave strong support to _ plank submitted from the floor which would allow medical per- sonnel the right .to refuse to par- ticipate in an abortion. Also submitted from the floor and defeated was a proposec plank which would have man- dated penalties for failure to report cases of child abuse. Following are some of the other platform planks adopted jy the Democrats: Enact strong gun control legis- iation, after deletion of the statement: .including the prohibition of handguns for the general public." Rescind the Cedar Rapids city ordinance whereby police of- "icers lose their jobs if they ex- e r c i s e their constitutional rights.

Plane Damaged in Landing Accident Cedar Rapids A light plane sustained minor damage Saturday afternoon when one of its wheels struck mud beside a runway at the Cedar Rapids municipal airpor; and it nosed over. The pilot, Donald Kvindlog, of 3618 Northwood drive NE, was not injured. The accident occurred al about 1 p.m., as Kvindlog was attempting a "touch and go' landing on runway 26. The righl main landing gear dropped of] the edge of the pavement into deep mud, causing the four- place, single-engine plane to till up on its propeller and righl wingtip. A truck and tractor became stuck in the mud, which the pilot estimated at about eight inches deep, while trying to pull the airplane from the site of the accident.

With some irritation, Hearst said, "No rational person could believe that sort of nonsense." He said the theory that his daughter might have been in- volved in her own kidnaping was "idiotic."

Two adolescent streakers were nabbed by Cedar Rapids police Saturday night. The two, both male juveniles, were ap- prehended as they streaked in the 1900 block of Mt. Vernon road SE.

But the leaders must be prepared to act on the house committee's decisions and thus they are looking ahead to the possibility that the impeach- ment process might run its full course. The following is the current but decidedly tentative out- look of the leaders: The house judiciary commit- tee will take about six weeks, beginning in early May, to ex- a m i n e evidence being as- sembled by the inquiry staff and to decide whether it constitutes grounds for impeachment. If the committee, by majority vote, recommends articles of impeachment in the latter part of June, the house would defer consideration of them until re- turning, probably on July 9, from an Independence day :cess. H Nixon is impeached, the senate will probably delay as much as a month or until late August the start of the trial. The delay would enable the President's lawyers to prepare a defense and permit the senate to act on such important pend- ing legislation as appropriations leasures. The trial, according to one es- timate, .could last two months.
