The committee also was notified by John Hoar, chief counsel of its impeachment inquiry, that he would ask it to vote Thursday to authorize subpoenas demanding 62 presidential conversations dealing with the ITT anti-trust settlement and political contributions from the dairy industry.  The committee voted 37 to I to subpoena the tapes of ll conversations dealing with the Watergate breakin and cover-up.  A separate vote was taken for each of the time periods covered in the demand for presi  periods for which presidential diaries weer sought as follows:  April through July 1972 as the period when the Watergate breakin was planned and carried out. That demand was approved by a vote of 36 to 2 with Rep. Mayne (It-Iowa) joining Hutchinson in opposition.  February through April 1973 as a critical period in relation to action or inaction on the Watergate investigation. It was approved 32 to 6 with Reps. Dennis (R-Ind.), Butler (R-Va.), Lott (R-Miss) and Moorhead (R-Calif.) joining Hutchinson and Mayne in opposition.

State Delays Vote on Relocating 149  By Tom Fruehling  AMES — Approval for relocation of highway 149 in Iowa county near the Amana colonies has been delayed by the Iowa highway commission until at least its next meeting in two weeks.  As a result of a design public hearing in Amana March 7. the commission staff Tuesday recommended that a 24-fool. two-lane highway be built diagonally from Interstate 80 northeast to highway 6. just west of Homestead.  This four-mile stretch, if ap  is scheduled to be taken over by the county.  However, opponents of the  Owner cf Marina Quits McGregor In Land Dispute  By Nancy Brace  MCGREGOR -McGregor  Judge Sentences Chapin to ■ 0 to 30 Months Tor Lying  <amc type  of business he has  WASHINGTON (AP) — For* trial conviction on Friday. The mer presidential appointments judge allowed the 33-ycar-old  he  three  proposed road, comprised of property owners who stand to lose valuable farm land, raised objections Tuesday to both the project and to the manner in which the plans had been made.  A Cedar Rapids attorney. Richard Pundt, w ho nerves as legal counsel for his father, Arthur, and other farmers in the route of the road, told the comm.sooners Tuesday his group had not had an adequate chance to voice objections to the proposal.  Further, he commented, the highway is “absolutely not necessary.”  Faced with the controversy, the commission decided to delay action until “more input” can be obtained. This includes not only opinions by the objector*, but statements from those who support the road. These include the Amana Society, the Iowa county board of supervisors and the Amana Refrigeration Co.  This action is an extension of a long history of disputes involving highway building in the Amana area.  At one time the commission approved a freeway through the colonies, only to reverse itself in response to sharp public criticism.  Despite objections by those who stood to lose part of their property, the location of the presently discussed road was okayed by the commission in December of 1972. after a public hea.ing in October.  Bundt, and those he represents, contend that their arguments have been ignored and that they have not had access to highway commission flit* concerning the studies  made on environmental and traffic issues.  It was admitted Tuesday by commission staff members that while Bundt had asked for such reports, and had been told he would receive them, none has been made available.  This, it was claimed, is due to the fact that the “complete transcripts” have only recently been compiled. Bundt will be allowed to review these records before the commission makes a final decision on the highway.  The commission staff is in favor of the relocation of 149 to meet what it claims are needs of both the tourist traffic into Amana and the congestion of travel to and from major business firms, such as Amana Refrigeration  Planning staff Chief it L. Kassel also said the road would provide improved conditions between the colonies.  Cedar Rapids and Interstate 80  He believes the factors of safety, time saving, lower operating costs for motorists and the improved design of t h e proposed road over present highway 149 offset the property loss by the land owners.  He added that he has read a report that for every one acre of farm land lost nationwide, there are three acres which come into use due to timber clearing, irrigation and other methods’.  Robert Humphrey, also of the planning division, argued that 149 now has many “ups and downs" and sub-par three-foot shoulders, which make the road a safety hazard.  Bundt argued “good agricultural land will be taken out of production for no reason.” except possibly to appease  (Continued Page 9 Col, I )  without elaboration.
