The new subpoena calls for delivery by June 10 of Water- ;ate lapes originally requested April 19. Most of (hem also have been subpoenaed by Special Prosecutor Leon Jaworski, who lias asked the supreme court lo rule on his right to them. The 45 tapes were made be- tween Nov. 15, 1972, and June 4 1973. Most involve conversations between Nixon and former aides H. R. Haldeman, John Ehrlich- man, Charles Colson and John Dean. Rep. Dennis (R-Ind.) pro- posed that the committee file a friend-of-the-court brief in be- half of Jaworski's suit, but his motion was defeated 32-6. Mosl members regard the commit tee's right to evidence as man dated by the Constitution's grant to the house of the sole power o: impeachment and do not wan to turn to the courts. For the same reason, a pro posal by Railsback to seek, leg islation that would empower thi courts to enforce committee subpoenas was also defeated 32-6. "Total Power" Rep. Danielson (D-Calif.) said it was a mistake to say the com mittee has no power to enforce its subpoenas. "We have tola power of enforcement the power of he said. Rep. Seiberling (D-Ohio) sait the committee's function is no to find guilt or innocence but to determine whether probably cause exists lo believe Nixon committed impeachment of fenses. "If he fails to produce evi- dence we have rightfully re quested, that alone is sufficien to provide probable cause when added to the evidence we al ready he said.

This is less tian three feet from over- lowing the spillway. As of late Friday morning, vater was flowing into the pool ichind the spillway at a rate of cfs. In changing his plea Friday Arbuckle said he "gave a tele phone pitch" about the seeds .to jrospective buyers for a two and one-half month period in 1973. Commission He claimed he received a 20 cent commission on each bushe of seed sold. He said he though Ihe business was legitimate, bu lias since been told .the seed wa, sold "at inflated prices." His lawyer asked for leniency since he believes his client "i not a criminal." Arbuckle couli have been fined up to on Ihe charge.

Kirshen advised dismissal o other charges against Geiger since he said that Geiger wil make restitution of up to lo individuals who lost money i the operation. The father of seven children Geiger could have been fine and given a one-year pris on sentence. Shorten Trial As a result of pre-trial confer ences, Wolf and Sarby will in tially be tried for their activitie in connection with the Interstal Seed Brokers. Kirshen said if the pair is con victed on these charges, count from other indictments dealin with other firms will b dropped. This, he said, will consider ably shorten what he estimate Thursday to be a "five- to sever week trial." Disaster Area Johnson county Supervisor lobert Burns said Friday he lad been in contact with Iowa Sen.

Inflow at the reservoir has leen recorded at cfs, while discharge has been main- tained at cfs. Loses An old-fashioned confidence game netted Thursday for Iwo women who duped another woman into believing they would share a large sum of money if 6he would put up some of her own money as a show of confidence. Charlotte Henderson, 56, of Central City, told police she was approached by the pair in the Target store, 4501 First ave- nue SE. The women said they had found and would share it with her if she would pay taxes on it. Police said the women drove to a bank in Alburnett where Mrs. Henderson withdrew money from a savings account. The group returned to the Target store and told Mrs. Hen- derson to wait 20 minutes until they finished meeting with an attorney who was handling the situation. One of the suspects was de- scribed as 5 feet 6 inches, thinly built, about 115 pounds, wearing a green dress with a red and green top and a beige sweater. The other suspect was de- scribed as 5 feet 8 inches tall, thinly built, about 120 pounds, with short reddish-brown hair. She was wearing a blue dress with white polka dots and while collar and cuffs. Let a want ad help you solve your buying or selling prob- lems! Dial 398-8234.
