Jail records show the 31-year- old rural Keystone man was taken to a hospital for about 'hree hours Friday afternoon and about two hours Sunday af- ternoon, and that he was taken lo a doctor for about an hour Monday afternoon. The cuts were reported to have been inflicted with sharp- ened eating utensils. The sheriff's office gave infor- mation about the incidents to Ihe county attorney Tuesday morning and an application was prepared seeking a transfer to the reformatory at Anamosa for safekeeping until trial. A hearing on the application was scheduled for Tuesday af- ternoon. Owners' Rights Key in Tavern Case: Attorney The attorney for Ramco, Inc., of Cedar Rapids alleged Mon- day that "the owner of a build- ing cannot be held responsible for the tenants" in a Linn dis- trict court hearing concerning the closing of the Salty Dog tav- ern, 1601 West Post road SW. which, Taureen Ltd., leased to which Taureen Ltd. leased- to sell alcoholic beverages. The Salty Dog liquor license and beer permit were revoked Feb. 13 by the Linn supervisors fol- lowing charges of selling beer after 2 a.m. According to the attorney for Ramco, the premises were nol in violation of any laws. He therefore concluded that the Iowa code which states the "premises shall not be reli- ccnsed" infringes on property rights of landowners. In a pclition of intervention in Tanrcen's plea lo keep the lav- crn open, the Ramco attorney questioned (he constitutionality of closing a building for aclions of tenants. "If Icnanls in an apartment building arc caughl smoking marijuana, should they close down the apartment he asked. He added he will take the pc- lilion as far as. the U.S. supreme courl if necessary. "It's some- thing that hasn't been ques- tioned he said. The Ramco attorney also al- leged possible violations o( the open meetings law by Linn su- pervisors when they revoked Ihe Sally Dog license and permit.

Conyers (D- lures for presidemia, campaigns Mich.) that it vote an immcdi-1 ate article of impeachment based on Nixon's refusal to number of recommendations for urn out as large as now indicat- legislation to cut campaign fi- nancing abuses. Included were proposals to limit cash contribu- tions, put a ceiling on comply the committee's about 275 persons seeking an in- vestigation into policies and practices of the county depart- ment of social services. The petition, which alleges the practices "abuse" tax dollars, was brought before the board Tuesday and was referred, to the social services advisory board "for appropriate action." The petition alleges the de- partment makes inadequate in- vestigation of persons who apply for aid to dependent chil- dren and food stamps and that the department has repeatedly failed to pursue reported abuses and to maintain any consistent or reasonable review. Petitioners complained about a "department policy to justify rehabilitation of two adult parents in efforts to 'save' family, resulting in children re- maining in a state of limbo for several years until unadoptable, all at taxpayers' expense, while some 509 desirable, stable homes are available for adop- tion in Iowa." They also complained the de- partment is lax in bringing ne- glected-dependent children he- fore the court, and that when a court adjudication is obtained the department is unable to pro- vide expeditious and proper placement for the child. The petition said the depart- ment's explanation of the mai- lers is that the department is overwhelmed by the caseload. If the cases were handled ex peditiously and proficiently, the petition said, the caseload would be diminished substantially. duty to abstain "from organiz-; ing or encouraging irregular forces or armed bands including mercenaries from incursion into the territory of another state."

A communique said the raids began at (p.m. Israeli time, only minutes 'before President Nixon flew out of Amman, Jor- dan. The attacks were on an area known as just north of the Israeli border in the shadow of Mt. Hermon. The command said its aircraft re- turned safely. Four Arab terrorists slipped across the border from Lebanon last Thursday and killed three women at the Shamir kibbutz communal farm near the Golan Heights. The Arabs also were killed. Israeli retaliatory raids gen- erally follow closely such guer- illa raids, but the Tel Aviv com- mand apparently held off be- cause of Nixon's presence in the area. subpoenas. He offered a similar resolulion last May 29 and was defeated, 29 to 9. In other developments: WUlliam Dixon, the lawyer vho has drafted 14 memos on mpeachment evidence for "nembers of the house judiciary :ommittee, was a presidential campaign worker for Democrat George McGovern in 1972, a committee member said Tues- lay. Rep. Kastenmeier CD- Vis.) said Dixon worked in the VIcGovern campaign in Wiscon- sin, and later joined the staff of Democratic Gov. Patrick.Lucey.

The report recommended the committee take no position on the public financing of cam- jpaigns since the members apparently sharply divided on the question. about grand confidential Watergate jury information. Tran scripts of White House conver sations show that Nixon passec on information obtained from Assistant Attorney Genera Henry Peterson to H. R. Hal- deman and John Ehrlichman. In Sacramento, Calif., presi- dential tax lawyer Frank De- Marco resigned his California notary public license just before revocation hearings were to start in Los Angeles. The secre- ary of state's office had ac- cused DeMarco of backdating and falsely notarizing a deed [iving some of President Nix- on's vice-presidential papers to the National Archives. McCalPs magazine, in its July issue, quotes close Nixon friend d. G. "Bebe" Rebozo as telling Nixon "he couldn't let the peo- ile down by resigning." Rebozo is quoted as saying: "I told him that he would be personally better off if he were candidate for the superin- endency of a Washington school district and will remain in his iresent position next year. Currie told The Gazette Mon- day afternoon, "I definitely will be here next fyear. I've prom- ised the board that." He was one of two finalists for out I told him he has to ed." Campbell also testified that 'the number of cattle currently on feed appears be coming in ine with demand." Agriculture Secretary Butz acknowledged at a White House meeting Monday that any effec- ;ive steps to improve the lot of cattle feeders, as well as h o g and poultry producers, will raise grocery prices. The producers have com- plained that they are losing money by selling at current prices.

Currie said he was not offered on the bills are scheduled to jegin next week. Campbell said the senate pro- posals are "only a partial short- term solution to a very complex set of circumstances and would be more harmful than helpful to the cattle industry in the long run." "Anything that would ar- tificially stimulate the number of cattle placed on feed, such as low-interest loans, would only worsen and prolong the current he said.

What was his response? Well, he gave me a look as though to say, 'I have nearc lhat before, Bcbe.' The senate judiciary commit- tee is taking a closer look at the justice department's investiga- tion of Ihe Watergate breakin. The inquiry marks a broadening of hearings held in late April on Ihe nomination of Earl J. Sil- bcrt, Ihe original Watergate prosecutor, to be the U. S. attor- ney for the District of Columbia. Senator Ervin said that before acting on Silbcrt's nomination, the committee should try to find out why more indictments reaching higher-ups were nol returned when the bug- ging and burglary of Dcmocrat- :he job because he and the Bellevue board could not mutu- ally agree on "terms and condi-] tions" of the contract. He declined to specify what :hose were. Bellevue is a suburb of near Seattle. Currie was assis- tant principal and purchasing agent for the Bellevue school system from 1954 to 1957, and had worked in various other school districts in Washington and Oregon. Currie has been Cedar Rapids superintendent since 1968. His current three-year contract has two vears left to run. Graduates some signs Monday of withhold- ng livestock. Spokesmen for some Midwes- ,ern markets said cattle and iog supplies were down. Howev- er, the agriculture department said total slaughter figures in- dicated no significant holdback iy farmers. Many industry officials said it would take several more days lo determine whether a withhold- ing action, called in the hopes of driving up depressed prices, was really being applied. John McGregor, owner of one of Washington's largest feedlots, said he will not withhold cattle, calling the withholding effort a move "by men without much more to lose.
