The action was taken Tues- day. The board also voted Tuesday to accept the low bid for grad- ing the 1.5 miles of that road going east from its interchange with interstate 380. The bids were received lasl week. Low bid for Portland ce- ment paving was compared to the estimate ol Low bid for the grading from Barker, Inc., Iowa City was 4.6 percenl below the estimate.

Wolfe; 50, of Cedar Rapids, was in good condition at St. Luke's hospital Tuesday with injuries suffered when his car and a tractor collided on a county gravel road northeast of Ely Monday evening. Linn deputies reported Wolfe was driving east on a road two miles north and a mile east of Ely, came over a hill and struck a tractor driven by Dennis D. Miller, 18, of route 4, Solon. The tractor had been headed west and was turning left into "a driveway. It was struck in the right rear. There was no report of injury to Miller. No charges were filed. ployes begin organizing. School District Ronald Moore, member of the Cedar Rapids Community school district, said he thought the law will not mean much "I don't see too much change. I understand this district is closer teo doing what's required in the law (than other school "I don't foresee any prob- lems, and I certainly don't fear the law." Moore said he was "sorry that the school board which is the elected representative of the public and not tied to either the administration o r employes, isn't the last authority in set- tling issues." Moore said he mainly object- ed to the law's provisions for final offer arbitration. Mayor Don Canney and the city council have not yet read the bill, and have reserved com- ment on it until they can study it, but the council is on record as favoring collective bargain- ing in some form. Intergovernmental Coordina- tor Tom AJler said 'a copy of the amended bill was not available until this week because of the large number of requests the legislature received for copies of the bill. (Continued from Page 1.) House official asserted that Nixon is seeking ways to blunt what he termed "escalating re- quests on all fronts" for more tapes of presidential conversa- tions. This official, who would not allow use of his name, said that while Nixon has not decided precisely how to proceed, he still plans "a comprehensive statement, a comprehensive re- sponse" to the subpoena. However, interviews with sev- eral Nixon advisers disclosed that high-level unhappiness is growing with each new subpoe- na or request for White House tapes. Showed Anger Indications are that Nixon himself let his anger show when he judiciary committee formal- y requested more tapes beyond the 42 conversations it has sub-i The Cedar Rapids 3 Gazette: Wed., April 24, 1974 poenaed for its impeachment in- quiry. And, inside top White House councils, there are increasingly Miter complaints about special Watergate prosecutor Leon Ja- worski's quest for House tapes and documents. One official contended that "we were misled by Jaworski" during negotiations in the months preceding the prosecu- tor's recent subpoena for 64 taped presidential conversations. The official responded "no" when asied whether Nixon was considering firing Jaworski. "Numbers Game" It is unclear how the high- level unhappiness might be translated into White House ac- tion. But it is known that Nixon and his closest advisers have been debating ways to counter the expanding requests while providing the "comprehensive response" to the house subpoe- i. "We don't want to move to a point of confrontation But Ihe question is, do you ever sat- isfy their said one official. "It's gone from nine tapes to 19 tapes to 42 tapes, and now, even before we an- swer, they... want more." This official, who often mir- rors Nixon's views, spoke hea- tedly of "the numbers game" he said was being played by inves- tigators and contended it was an effort to "create impeachment momentum." House First The White House clearly in- tends lo deal with the house committee subpoena before turning to Jaworski's court-sup- ported demand for tape record- ings and other documents relat- ed to 64 conversations between Nixon and four of his former top aides. In asking Judge John Sirica to issue the subpoena, Jaworski said the information was needed for the Watergate cover-up trials scheduled to begin in Sep- tember. The additional tapes and doc- uments being requested .by the bouse impeachment panel may touch on a controversial ITT anti-trust settlement and cam- paign money from the dairy in- dustry, as well as Watergate. Other Requests The Associated Press has ob- tained a copy oE a. letter show- ing.the judiciary .committee, no- tified the White House on April 11 that it would request addi- tional tapes covering those three areas. Rodino refused to say at an impromptu news conference Monday whether the new re- quests in fact deal with all three reas. But he did say, "We want to be as comprehensive as we can." In another development, Sen. Percy (R-I1I.) made public a let- ;er he received 10 days ago 'rom Jaworski, saying the Mute House "is now impeding" ;he Watergate grand juries by 'ailing to produce tapes and capers. How much Will It Cost? You ask this whenever you make a purchase, and there's certainly nothing the matter with asking it when you make funeral arrangements.
