CITY FINAL 15 CENTS YORK TIMFS 2 FrV6r Flee Jail HOCK RAPIDS (UPI) Two brothers, charged in the shotgun slayings of four teen- agers at a northwest Iowa state park last year, escaped Wednesday from the Lyon county jail. Alleo Fryer, was await- ing sentencing on a four-conrit murder conviction, while his brother, James, 21, was await- ing (rial on four counts ol murder. The both of the Sioux Falls, S.D., area, were charged in the November, 1973, slayings of the four Sioux Falls teenagers as they were sitting around a camp- fire at the Gitchie Manitou slate park. Lyon county authorities said the two were being held on different floors of the county jail- Allen apparently picked the lock on his cell and then aided James in escaping. The brothers were discov- ered missing about 9 a.m. by Lyon county sheriff's depu- ties. A third brother, David Fryer, 24, is serving a life sentence in the Iowa state penitentiary after pleading guilty to an open count of murder in connection with the slayings. Officials said both escapees are considered extremely dangerous. Does Tape Shake Nixon Story? Members Split Gazette Leased Wires Nixon was listening to a numberi W A S H I N U TON SomcLf tapes and commenting about members of the house judiciary L j committee say a taped presi- dential conversation heard by a' tec on Tuesday indicated some committee members that Nixon knew of the cover-up at least as early as March 17, 1973. It is not the four days that is significant in their view. But they said the apparent discrep- ancy raises doubts about Nix- on's Watergate explanations. He has repeatedly given March 21 as the date he first learned of efforts centered in the White House to contain the spreading scandal. The tape the committee lis- tened to was an excerpt from one made June 4, 1973, while James Fryer the committee indicates Pres- ident Nixon may have been aware of the Watergate covcr- np at least four days earlier than he has admitted. But other committee members disagreed. I Ronald Zicglcr. Cover-Up Discussed?

Nixon also indicated, in his farewell remarks to President Antonio Spinola. that economic tergate cover-up then. Members could not bear the tapes Nixoni was listening to. Stung by criticism of a new leak of a confidential committee memorandum, members were reluctant to discuss what they heard or to comment on the record. But last May 21, in a press briefing, Chairman Rodino (D- N. had said the June 4 tape showed the March 17 meeting with Dean included "a discus- sion of the Watergate matter and the possible involvement of White House personnel and others." "I'll stick by that Rodino said Tuesdayj and other members said after hearing thcj tape they agreed with it. Mezvinsky's Doubts Asked whether he now had doubts that Nixon first learned of the cover-up March 21, Rep. Mczvinsky said, "Yes." j Some members, working with Spinola "in the story until March 21. great goals he has set for his government." Barnstorming The two presidents met for nearly two hours before Nixon headed on to Washington to con- clude his 10-day period of diplo- matic barnstorming. Nixon ar- rived Tuesday for an overnight stay. Spinola said the two pres- idents exchanged views on "the technical, economic, financial support which would enable Portugal to be economically on a par with other countries in Europe." Nixon, in response, referred to the wind gusting up to 50 miles per hour across the Atlan- tic island chain. "The winds of political change have never blown stronger than they are all over the world Nixon said.
