Ifs Tough Being a Nice Guy These Days The rewards for being a Good Samaritan can be bitter- sweet at best sometimes, James Moldenhauer, 3005 Bowling street SW, discovered Sunday night. Police said Moldenhauer picked up a- man in Dubuque, gave him a ride to Cedar Rapids and offered to let him stay in his home. When they arrived in Cedar Rapids, the man, identified as Richard Kyde, 18, of Miiwau- k e e, Wis., robbed Mol- denhauer at knife-point. He escaped with Moldenhauer's wallet, in cash, four credit cards, a diamond ring, and Moldenhauer's car. He drove back to Dubuque, police said, where he was ap- prehended by. Dubuque auth- orities. Kyde was being held in the Dubuque city jail Monday pending transfer to Cedar Rapids on charges of robbery and larceny of a motor vehic- le.

The strike appeared to be having no effect in Cedar Itapids. A spokesman for Tuhbs Transport service station, 251'J Sixteenth avenue SW, asked il there was any difference in nor- mal traffic, said, "Not a thing'" Kyle Mills, owner of Kyle Mills Bus and Truck service, 60 Seventh avenue SW, agreed. "Apparently there's not too he said. "We haven't heard much of anything. Even the two-way radios have been pretty quiet." A group of independent and company truck drivers in the Burlington area voted Sunday night to go on strike. The na lionwide shutdown was lo begin at a.m. Monday. Orin Amus, a spokesman for (he Burlington group, said 3G of the 41 drivers at the meeting voted in support of the strike, which is backed by Michael Parhurst, editor of Overdrive Magazine. Amus said the igroup wants a rollback of fuel prices and a permanent placed on Ihe prices and higher speed limits. He said another meeting would be held Tuesday to de- termine if the truckers would remain on strike.

A trucker in Bedford county escaped unhurt when his wind shield was smashed by a rock thrown from an overhear, bridge. Despite the scattered violence Pennsylvania authorities salt trucks were rolling at near nor- mal'rates in the state. Checks around the nation showed truck traffic was near normal Monday in Delaware Maryland, Texas, Florida, Mas sachusetts, Indiana, South Caro lina, Alabama, New York, South Dakota and Connecticut among others. Wait-and-See Truckers' groups in Minnesota, Nebraska and New Hampshire adopted a wait-and-see position on the shutdown call. A spokes- man for independent drivers in Denver said the strike was working there but was not able to provide figures. In Utah drivers voted to keep Charge Is Dropped; Sentenced on Felony A charge of possession of con- .rolled substance against Elmet ..appe, jr., 7i4 First avenue NW, was dismissed Friday in magistral e's court because he was sentenced to the men's re- ormatory, Anamosa, on a felony charges.

Alley Dropped From City's 74 Paving Program The city council decided Mon- day to delete an alley from the proposed 1974 paving program. The alley that was to be wvcd is between First and Sec- ond avenues and Eighteenth and streets SE. Rcsidcnls who -own property )n Ihe alley had objected to ils ncltision in Ihe paving pro- ;ram.

"That she was mutilated after death this very brutal death." Woodward said death was due :o asphyxiation -by strangu lation. Regarding the mutilation of :he body, Woodward noted a jroomslick was discovered near .he body with evidence indicat- ng that the broom had been used at least in part on the at- tack on the girl. State's Evidence Woodward then outlined the main portion of the state's evi- dence which he contended tied Hall lo the murder. He said the state would prove a bloody fingerprint found at the murder scene belongs to Hall. The body of Miss Ottens was :lad only in a blouse, Woodward said. The prosecutor contended Thieves Batter Down Wall To Gain Entry A cement block wall was no barrier to thieves who broke into the Derby Station, 1796 Six- teenth avenue SW, Saturday night. The thieves smashed a hole in a cement block wall to gain en- trance to the back room. The strument used was not found. They escaped wilh to in cash from the sate and two coin changers valued at In another breakin, someone entered the Taco Kid, 3429 Firs avenue SE, and took in cash and checks from a blue bank bag. ,a hair found on the Mouse be- longed to Hall. Kurlher, a hair later found on a pair of Hall's tennis shoes, found as a result of a search warrant, belonged to the mur- dered girl, the prosecutor said. Marijuana The possibility that marijuana may have been involved in the case was brought out by Wood- ward in describing how he con- tends the murder was discov- ered. According to Woodward there were only two female occu- pants of Ihe dormitory at the time of the death because of the university's spring break. Woodward said Brenda Simp- son, accompanied by a male friend, passed room 429, the death room, and smelled what she believed may have been marijuana. Shortly afterward, she report- edly went to room 429 where she discovered the body. Defense Speaks A defense attorney for Hall, in brief opening statement, stressed the prosecution's case "is wholly circumstantial as even the special prosecutor admits. There are no eyewit- nesses placing Hall at the murder scene. "In effect, the state's case rests on a finger print and two lairs. "The state knows, but did not tell you, how that fingerprint ;ot there. The state also con- :ends the hairs belong to the defendant and victim, knowing iull well, the report states only that the hairs could have been of common origin to the defend- ant and victim." "Mystery Person" The defense also noted that the last time Miss Ottens was seen alive was when she took an elevator to the fourth floor of the dormitory, accompanied by a known university student and another male the defense des- cribed as the "mystery person in this case." The defense objected to much of the state's opening remarks. Judge Louis Schultz admonished the .jury that prosecution con- tentions "are merely that, merely what the state hopes to prove, rather than being prov- en evidence." -Weather- (Continued from Page 1.) area because of downed power lines.

"No President has ever as- serted the contrary prior to Mr. Schlesinger said. Perhaps Schlesinger's most severe criticism was the con- tention that Nixon, unlike other Presidents, has not only refused to accept but also has attempted to nullify any "sys- tem of accountability" for his actions as President. 'Scrutiny, Challenge' Schlesinger defined such a system as one of "scrutiny, challenge and criticism" as provided formally in the Con- stitution and enforced infor- mally through the President's political party and cabinet, the news media and the gen- eral public. The necessity of such ac- countability, Schlesinger maintained, has been recog- nized by the majority of American Presidents, includ- ing such "imperialistic" of- fice-holders as Teddy Roose- velt and Franklin D. Roose- velt. "However, Mr. Nixon with some signs in his imme- diate predecessor active- ly resents scrutiny, challenge and criticism and sees it not only as unfair, but illegitimate and Schlesinger said. Election Mandate The President's altitude, he added, seems lo be lhat each election confers a mandate of approval on Ihe President, and between elections the President should be left alone. Calling thai an "interesting b u t self-serving Schlesinger contended that it also subverted Ihe will of the country's Founding Fathers, who believed someone should "always be on Ihe back" of Ihe President. z when words oren'l enough send sympathy with flowers FLORIST and GIFT SHOP 364-8139 PHONE ANSWERED HOURS EVERY DAY,
