Seed Oats Trial Comes To an End The seed oat fraud scheme rial came to a close in Cedar Rapids federal court Friday norning with the final witness being government rebuttal witness Barbara Blake, a "ormer employe of Interstate Seed Brokers. Mrs. Blake, formerly of Audu- 3on but now living in Sterling, Colo., testified she worked part time as a secretary for the firm- and its two officials, Duane Sarby and Mert Wolf. She also said she used to be a "personal friend" of Sarby's, having met him while both were employed by the Carlson Sun- flower Co. in Audubon. She later commuted to Omaha 80 miles away to work, "one or two days a for Interstate. Commission decks Mrs. Blake testified that the two defendants in the trial senl 5 0 commission checks to dealers "so people would stop bothering them." She also said the reasoning behind raising dealership fees was that "they said if they could get they might as well try for more." The men she said, thought "farmers were easy to sell to they would buy anything." When Interstate went out ol business, Mrs. Blake claimed, Sarby and Wolf thought it was "like a joke or something." She said they didn't feel it was "very serious." The defense's sole witness, Sarby, finished testimony Thursday afternoon. Denies Allegation He denied being what Asst. U. S. Atty. Alan Kirshen termed "a silent partner" in Northern Seed Brokers of Waterloo, one of the other firms indicted for fraud. In replying to a question by Kirshen, Sarby said farmers who argued that Interstate promised a "buy back" arrange- ment of their oat harvest were "liars." He also said he intended to inspect the crop of oats Inter- state sold to farmers but that his business folded before the crop came in. military services at the ccmc-l Surviving are a son, Milo, and, ,.A1, considcralions tcry by he American Legion. a daughter, Mrs. becausc found Friends may call at Turner of Monliccllo; seven grand- ,h J, f t, chapel west until 9 p.m. Sunday jc hi hire n and 16 js vila] lhc' prescrva. and at the church from 10 a.m.jgrandchildrcii. llioil Of our Constitution as a liv- p.m. Monday, 'i'het Services: Turner chapel castling body of fundamental jits core, this is a case that turns j duct could he charged to Nixon i Watergate cover-up cose and on the separation of powers." i for underpaying his taxes. jwith conspiracy to violate the Rep.

"The whole area of taxes could fall have been named an unindicted co-conspirator on grounds he is inot subject to normal criminal jrocesses. They said such ac- ion also prejudices the ongoing mpeachment inquiry. Jaworski responded that the 'ramers of the Constitution 'were very careful to provide for a presidency with defined and limited constitutional powers and not the prerogatives and immunities of a sovereign." Jaworski argued that "under our Constitution the people are sovereign and the President, though Chief Executive and chief of state, remains subject to the law." "Although there have been a few notorious instances in our history in which Presidents have refused to give appropriate force to judicial decrees, or are reported to have made disdain- ful statements about the deci- sions, non involved directly dis- obedience of a court Jaworski wrote. "More impor- tantly, it is the judgment of his- into even the White House's re- strictive definition of what con- stitutes an impeachable of- fense."

The IRS finally decided on a 5 percent penalty for negligence, in addition to finding that Nixon underpaid his taxes by over the four-year period, they said.

Manchester Woman T@ Energy Council DES MOINES (AP) Ap- pointment of five people as pub- lic members of the state's new energy policy council was an- nounced Frid'ay by Gov. Robert Ray. The five, whose terms wi run until June 30, 1975, are: Orren S. Olson, 60, Hum- boldt farmer and president of the board of the Iowa Assn. of Rural Electric Cooperatives. Robert D.

In that plea he admitted that in 1971 he concocted and carried out a scheme to "defame and destroy the public image and credibility" of Ellsberg, then nearing trial in the Pentagon Papers case. In return for the plea, special Watergate prosecutor Leon Ja- worski made public his under- standings with Colson.

He met frequently for prayer and fel- lowship with a group including Hughes. Hughes has said it was at these meetings that Colson, on his own, decided to plead guilty. Colson himself would not dis- cuss the circumstances sur- rounding his plea except to say that it oc- curred because of his becoming a Christian. Outside the court, Colson made a brief statement to re- porters. "I just want to say one thing and that's all I'm going to say: I've committed my life to Jesus Christ.
