'Moderate' Increase in University Tuition Seen ByMargyMcCay AMES (AP) Students a Iowa's three state universitie apparently will be paying mor to go to school in the fall of 1975 The state board of regent decided Thursday to adopt policy of "moderate" increas in tuition at the schools. The action came at the end o a discussion on general tuitio policy at the board's meeting-at Ames. No definition of "moderate- was given, but Regent Donal Shaw, Davenport, suggested i be based on a set of principle and guidelines for establishin tuition rates at regents' institt tions, which was accepted bj the board's budget preparatior committee last month. Those guidelines say tuition adjustments "should be in thi range of to for resident, and to for nonresi dents." Expressed Hope Board president, Mrs. H. Rane Petersen, Harlan, expressec lope at the beginning of the hree-hour discussion that the board could adopt a tuition poli- cy statement. But after consideration of sev- eral topics tuition for nonresi- dents, instructional costs as actor in tuition and what part if the tuition increase should be Watchdog Unit Voted for Commodities Exchanges WASHINGTON (AP) The ouse has voted 281 to 43 to eate a commission armed th sweeping authority over e commodites exchange in- ustry, a booming business with i impact on prices of food and her basic products. The five-member Commodity utures Trading Commission ould watch over exchanges lore contracts for future dcli- ry of products are bought and Id. Thursday's house vole sends e proposal to the senate, despread support is expected ere for the basic idea of the [islation, but moves may be ade to strengthen the pro- sed agency. The commission would police business in hich contracts are bought and Id at exchanges across the unlry. More than a year of arp price fluctations prompt- demands to improve the law 'olying these markets, which e intended to minimize price risks for farmers and others in the food-marketing chain. The house agriculture com- mittee decided public members should be paid a daily rate at an annual level of for the time spent on the job. The commission would be required to meet as often as necessary, but not less than once a month. By 179 to 158, the house re- fused to change this to a full- time job. Some congressmen said full-time commissioners could seek to build bureaucrat empires in Washington and part-time commissioners could stay in better touch with people across the country. Backers of the full-time approach main- tained it would help lure more competent people. All potential future contracts, including many not now regulat- ed, would be brought under the law. The commission would have power to assess penalties of up to allocated to student aid th board seemed to be able t agree only on the need for a tu ition hike. The board considered a policy under which tuition would be se at a certain percentage of in structional costs, generally 25 to 35 percent. But Iowa State universitj President W. Robert Parks warned the board that instruc tional costs should be only on factor in determining tuition. Overall Cost He cited the overall cost o inflation as another importan factor. Under another policy, more advanced students would be charged higher tuitions. For ex ample, freshmen and sopho- more; would pay the least, with juniors, seniors and graduate students paying increasingly larger amounts. But that plan drew criticism rom Shaw, who said such ac- ion would force community col- eges to compete with the state universities for first- and se- cond-year students. Another area of disagreement vas tuition for non-residents. Irs. Petersen cautioned the oard against setting high rates (Continued: Page 3, Col. 6.)

French Need Wider Role, LeftistlSays PARIS (UPI) Leftist presi- dential candidate Francois Mit- terrand said Friday that France should adopt a wider role in in- ternational affairs and end its boycott of world disarmament talks. Outlining a five-point pro- gram, he called for: "Men who are more free; a more just society; a more-fra- ternal people; a stronger cur- r e n c y a more involved France." Mitterrand, 57, Socialist party leader, said, "I would like this presence (of France) to be more universal." He said "France is absent, morally or physically, from some places where it ought to be morally from Helsinki, where it should debate ive security and stability of Europe, and Brussels, where serious propositions for the building of Europe are still awaited. "Physically, France is absent rom Vienna, where the reduc- ion of world forces is discussed, and from Geneva, where disar- nament talks are held from vhich we have been absent liese past years." Mitterrand, who made his re- larks at a news conference, is le sole representative of the Communist-Socialist bloc in the lay elections to choose a suc- essor to President Georges Pompidou, who died April 2. White House To Turn Over "Some Material' WASHINGTON (AP) The White House, facing a house ju- diciary committee subpoena for tapes and documents, says it will turn over at least some of the materials. Presidential Press Secretary Ronald Ziegler on Thursday said President Nixon would give the committee materials "con sistent with his constitutiona responsibilities." Ziegler said the materials, t be turned over within tw weeks, would bear out th. President's past explanations o liis Watergate role and "receivi the support of the house." However, Ziegler declined to say that the response woulc comply fully with the demand by the house committee. "Conclusive" Reply "We will answer this commu nication and previous ones fron the committee at the end of th Easter vacation (April Ziegler said. "The answer wi will give will be comprehensivi and conclusive." Ziegler spoke several hours after the subpoena was hand delivered to the White House. A failure to comply with the subpoena could lead to a con- stitutional impasse, as a legal brief prepared by the judici- ary committee staff in support of issuing a subpoena makes clear. The staff's brief said, "Realis tically, .the President probablj cannot be compelled to compl1 -with a subpoena by use of the processes of either the house or ;he courts." That realization promptec ,ep. Edward Hutchinson (R the senior committee Republican, to cast one of the three votes against issuing subpoena. The others voting no were Reps. Charles Wiggins (R lalif.) and Trent Lott "Confrontation is the end o. the said Hutchinson. He added, however, that he expect ed the White House to comply with the subpoena. Refusal Impeachable? The committee brief notec that while the committee may not be able to enforce its sub )oena, non-compliance by Nixon :ould be taken into account b} he impeachment panel. In litigation generally, a re usal to produce evidence per- mits an inference that the mate- rial is unfavorable to the cause of the person holding it, it said. In addition, unjustified disobe- ilienca of a subpoena can be considered an impeachable of- fense, it said. The committee voted 33-3 to subpoena 42 presidential tapes and related documents the panel believes are tied to the Watergate cover-up. The sub- poena sets an April 25 deadline. Republicans Back Off The committee has been wait- ing for the material since Feb. 25. Tuesday the White Hous said it would deliver some of after April 22. In a vain effort t head off a subpoena, it prom ised just before the eommitte met Thursday to make a partia delivery in a few days. But after urging support fo the offer, which was made b White House lawyer James S Clair in a telephone call, Repub lican members backed awa from it when they were unabl to get it in writing. The subpoena was served on St. Clair in his office next to the White House within two hours after its issuance ha_ been approved by the commit- tee. The subpoena spelled out i detail the conversations th committee wants. They involv President Nixon, his forme aides H. R. Haldeman, Job Ehrlichman and John Dean former Ally. Gen. Richar Kleindienst and Asst. Atty. Gen Henry Petersen. The conversations all too place in February, March an April last year when, accordin to testimony of Haldeman, Ehr lichman and Dean, the Water gate cover-up was under discus sion in the White House. Watergate Panel Given Name of 'Contact' at IRS WASHINGTON (AP) Th senate 'Watergate eommitte has obtained the name of th former federal tax official al !eged to have furnished th White House with tax data on it friends and enemies. John Caulfield, President Nix on's former law enforcemen adviser, named Vernon "Mike Acree, now the U. S. Commis sioner of Customs, as his pn mary IRS contact. In two interviews, Aeree gorously denied that allegation saying he had done nothin "venal or that he coul not be considered Caulfield prime contact and that the in formation supplied was simila to that given other administr; tions over the last 20 years. He described some of Cau "ield's testimony as grossly-dis torted. In executive-session testimon1 :aken March 23, Caulfield sai he was referring to Acree, unti recently the assistant IRS com nissioner for inspections, when le spoke of "our capability a RS.

Tony" Boyle's attorneys says e will seek a new trial for the former president of the United Mine Workers, convicted of murdering union rival Joseph "Jock" Yablonski. The jury which returned its verdict Thursday evening also found the ailing 72-year-old Boyle, now serving a three-year federal sentence for misuse of UMW funds, guilty of killing Yablonski's wife and daughter on Dec. 31, 1969. The convictions carry a man- (Photo on Picture Page.) datory life term. No date was set for sentencing. Defense lawyer Charles Moses, claiming the evidence was insufficient, said he would file n motion next week for a new trial. "Originator" Special .prosecutor Richard Tony Boyle Spraguc, who charged Boyle had ordered Yablonski killed and then authorized in union funds to finance it, said: 'This man used the blood and sweat of miners for killing." Sprague previously had con- victed or obtained guilty pleas from eight others in the Ya- blonski case. "Boyle was the Sprague said. "We got back to the beginning and that's where we stop. "We have come to (he end of the line." No Emotion The jury of nine men and three women deliberated only 4% hours before returning a verdict. "Guilty, first intoned foreman Clyde Parris three times for the three murder charges. Boyle showed no emotion. Members of the Boyle and Yablonski families were on op- posite sides of the hushed court- room's center aisle when the verdict was read. All had their eyes riveted on the white-faced defendant sitting erect and un- moving in the carved armchair. Boyle's wife was heard to whisper, "He didn't have any- thing to do with it." His daugh- ter, Antoinette, held back tears (Continued: Page 9, Col. 3.) Tax Ruling Irrelevant WASHINGTON (AP) The General Services Administra- tion said Friday the pre- presidential papers President Nixon donated to the National Archives are government prop- rly and cannot be reclaimed by the President. A spokesman for GSA, parent agency of the National Ar- chives, said his agency consid- ered the gift legally binding, even though a tax deduction Nixon took for the gift has been disallowed by the Internal Reve- nue Service. More than half of the papers in question consist of Nixon's general correspondence as vice- president, although the most important items were removed before the gift was made. The remainder consist of documents collected between 1948 and 1962, including some newspaper clippings. The tax issue revolved around the question of whether Nixon made the gift before congress abolished allowing deduction for such donations. Thus, the spokesman said, the GSA con- siders the tax ruling irrelevant 'o the question of whether the papers now belong to the gov- ernment. White House View The 'GSA spokesman said, however, that Nixon probably would be free to sell or other- vise dispose of other Nixon lapers and memorabilia being tored at the National Archives )ut not included in the deeds donating some of his papers to he government. The spokesman said Nixon vould be free to reclaim those lapers barring any other legal mpediment. At the White House, Deputy Press Secretary Gerald Warren said it had always been Nixon's contention that a valid gift had been made, indicating he would make no effort to reclaim the papers. Asked about efforts by private groups to help the President meet his bill for back taxes by purchasing some of his papers, Warren said he knew nothing about them. Another White louse official said Nixon has not yet addressed the question of how he will raise the money "or overdue taxes from 1969-72. Million Offer Rep. Passman (D-La.) said Vednesday that a syndicate of usinessmen, including former ouisiana Gov. James Noe, had ffered to buy the papers for million. Jim Asaff, a Dallas real es- ate man who is co-chairman of group called the National ommittee to Support the Presi- ency, said Thursday that the 'hite House had promised a esponse by Monday on his roup's offer to buy the papers. Asaff said his group was of- ring to collect money to pay )me in back taxes and terest owed by Nixon in return r the papers.
