The memorandum also point- ed out to the court that the senate committee does not have access to evidence developed by the judiciary committee, which is considering impeachment of Nixon. Compromise Hinted In another chamber in same courthouse Monday, Judge John Sirica delayed pro- ceedings in a subpoena fight be- tween the White House and Wa- tergate special prosecutor Leon Jaworski over tapes and docu- ments covering 64 presidential conversations. Monday had been the deadline for the prosecutor and lawyers for seven cover-up defendants to answer a White House motion that the subpoena be quashed. Sirica put off the filing deadline until Friday and reset a hearing from Wednesday until next Monday. The delay, Sirica said in a brief announcement, was "for the purpose of facilitating dis- cussions leading to possible compliance" with the subpoena. White House lawyer James St. Clair said before the conference in Sirica's chambers he was asking for the delay in hopes of working out a compromise.

The hearing will be held in conjunction with the regular city council meeting, scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. in the council chambers on the fourth floor of city hall. Additional seating is being prepared for the room, but councilmen Tuesday said the meeting may have to move to larger quarters, perhaps the ar- mory, if council chambers won't accommodate everyone. Two Lettings Two bid letlings and a public hearing on the 1974 paving pro- gram are scheduled, but the principal reason councilmen ex- pect a big turnout is a request for rezoning about 20 acres near the intersection of highway 149 and Edgewood road SW. The acreage is adjacent to I acres that were previously re- The company has requested the additional 20 acres because of plans to build a larger center ihan originally proposed. The larger facility would have four department stores and about 1.1 million square feet of leasable retail area. Vigorous Opposition The additional rezoning has been vigorously opposed by the Greater Downtown Cedar Rapids Assn., several individu- als, and a group called Taxpay- ers for Sensible Planning, Inc., which includes many downtown business men. The principal reason for the opposition is that the facility, which opponents say will be equal to 40 percent of all exist- ing retail space in the city, would have to take a great amount of business away from the downtown area if it is to survive and would thus serious- ly harm the downtown area, in- juring the entire community and reducing the tax base.
