VOLUME 92 NUMBER 157 CITY FINAL 15 CENTS NIXON CASE Tama Vote Finaliiation Is Stayed Cedar Rapids A temporary order to preven certification of the June 4 pr mary election results from Tama county was signed Frida afternoon by Federal Judge EC ward J. McMaiHis. Late Friday m o r n j n members of the Sac and Fo tribal council from the Mesqua kie settlement near Tama ha filed suit in court claiming n polling place had been set up o (he settlement for the election. They asked the court to orde Tama county officials to con duct a primary election at th settlement and asked, in addi tion, for in damage "for the deprivation of this fun damental constitutional right t vote." Judge McManus set a hearini for 10 a.m. June 24 in Ceda Rapids to decide whether tin tribe should be allowed to vot in a special election. Stays Action Friday's order prevents Sec retary of State Melvin Synhors from certifying the county'; election results until he ha. ruled on the tribal council's pe tition. In it, the judge said the' Indi ans "have been denied the righ to vote and have .their vote counted, and they will suffe immediate and irreparabl harm, lops and injury" if the totals from the county vote can vass are certified. The official state canvass o the primary election was starl ed in Des Moines Friday by the state executive council, whicl serves as the state canvassing board. Met with Council The petition says Tama County Supervisor LeRoy Wiese and Tama Auditor Alvin Ohr met with the tribal council in September, 1973, to discuss es tablishment of a polling plaa on the settlement, but .that no formal action was taken. Both Olirt and Wiese are named as defendants, along with other county supervisors and Synhorst. The petition says the settle, ment was listed as a polling place in the official publication of .the election notice, but thai on election day there was no polling place on the settlemenl or any posted notice directing voters to an alternate polling place. In the past residents of .the settlement have cast their votes at polling places in Montour, Tama and Toledo. A favorable decision by the court could throw into jeopardy the 62-vote margin by which State Rep. Stephen Rapp, 25- year-old Waterloo lawyer, de- feated Nicholas Johnson, 39, ol Kesley, former federal commu- nications commissioner, for the Democratic nomination for the T h i r d district congressional scat. Ohrt said council members have not participated heavily in past primary elections and that only a few have voted in gener- al elections. However, there arc an es- timated 300 eligible voters living on the settlement. About 200 reportedly participate in tribal elections and there are said to be another 100 loo young for tribal elections but old enough lo vole in general elections.

As his plane approached, 'our Soviet-built Mig jet fighters of the Syrian air force ap- peared, two off each wing. Nixon's pilot, Col. Albert Al- jertazzie, unaware the Syrians had planned a jet escort, put the Boeing 707 into several sharp turns in order to identify their markings and get time lo deter- mine their intentions. A White HOuse spokesman said Albertazzie took the eva- ,ive maneuvers while he con- acted the airport tower about he fighters. The Syrians con- firmed that the planes were es- corts.

Security precautions were tight for the first American President ever to visit this Arab nation where Palestinian gueril- las have base camps and orga- nizational headquarters. The day was sweltering with ihe temperature 93 in downtown Damascus. Leaving Saudi Arabia, Nixon looked tired as he shook hands with a long line of dignitaries at Jidda, the Saudi Red sea port. He chatted privately for sev- eral minutes with King Faisal. In remarks earlier at Faisal's palace, Nixon said: "The U. S. will see to it that the level of security consistent with its responsibility to the Middle East is raised. "If Saudi Arabia is strong and secure, as it will be, it will enhance the chances for peace."

Desert Kills Searcher for Missing Boy MINIDOKA, Idaho (AP) A young woman has died of sun- stroke while taking part in a search for an 11-year-old boy missing for five days in the scorching southern Idaho desert. Some 400 people have been combing a two-county area in a search for Jeff Hodgson, who became separated from a state- sponsored wilderness survival study group Monday. Search officials said he had only a slim chance to survive because of 100-degree tempera tures and lack of water. Shirley Egans, 29, of Amerf. can Falls, Idaho, died of sun- stroke at a search camp Friday. A companion of Jeff, Rocky Neilson, 10, was found Tuesday. He said they fell behind the rest of the party and called to them, but the others didn't hear. Then the group walked out of sight, apparently unaware that two members were missing. Ricky said the two decided to split up. He said he spent Mon- day night in a cave he later dis- covered was infested with rat- tlesnakes. Then he wandered onto a farm about 20 miles from where he and Jeff separated. "Jeff said I wasn't going to make Rocky said. "He thought he was going to make it." At the same time, the court denied a motion by the White louse and the Watergate prose- cutors that the entire record of :he grand jury proceedings be made public, except for one ex- cerpt. The passage which was made public said: "On Feb. 25, 1974, in the course of its consideration of the ndictment in the instant case he grand jury, by vote of 19-0, determined that there is probable cause that Richard M. Nixon (among others) was a member of the conspiracy to defraud the United States and to obstruct justice charged in iount 1 of the instant indict- ment, and the grand jury au- horized the special prosecutor :o identify Richard M. Nixon others) as an unindicl- ed co-conspirator in connection with subsequent legal proceed- ings in this case." Boyd Olsen, the farmer who found Rocky, said the boy was screaming and crying. "I had to bold him down about five min- utes or so before I could get him settled down."

The list of co-conspirators was sealed by order of U. S. District Judge John J. Sirica, who will preside over the Watergate :over-up trial scheduled to jegin Sept. 9. Order Lifted Sirica lifted his secrecy order at St. Clair's request after the White House confirmed newspa- per reports that the President's name was on the list.
