The transcripts were released to Sirica on Monday and almost at the same time the White House released Nixon's state- ment in which the President said the latest disclosure would damage his case. Aide Pictures Nixon as Not Downcast SAN CLEMENTS, Calif. (UPI Richard Nixon was pictured as in good spirits and not down- cast Saturday but he spent his first full day as a private citizen since his fall from power behind a veil of privacy with his family in their oceanside villa. The Nixons did not venture from behind the guarded walls of their home and the few visi- tors during the day were not identified. The former President spent hours working at his office complex. A member of Nixon's staff who accompanied him to San Clemenle said that the former Chief Executive had not talked with President Ford since he left Washington but that he was expected to do so in the near fu- ture. The spokesman was asked about Nixon's mood. "I think one way to answer that is to say he has been busy in terms of reading and working on some he replied. "His spirits are good. He is not downcast. The decision he announced the other night is a decision he is very comfortable with and he is satisfied that in the national interest it was the right step for him to lake." There will be very little infor- mation about Nixon's activities in the coming days, he said, because "the President looks al this as a private time he will be spending the time with his family."

Portugal Maps Withdrawal from Colony in Angola LISBON, Portugal (AP) Portugal took another step away from its African empire on Saturday by outlining a for- mula to give independence to its roubled west African colony of Angola in about two years. The new government's mili- ;ary junta promised a start on 'self determination" for Angola as soon as a cease-fire with lib- eration movements there can be effected. The junta, headed by Pres- ident Atonnio de Spinola, said :he same liberation movements, fighting for independence for more than a decade, would be included in a provisional gov- ernment to be charged with holding a constituent assembly election within two years and later writing a constitution. After this, the junta said An- jolans can have "a government "egilimately representative of !he sovereign will of the people of Angola." Ex-Cuban Head Jose Cardona Is Dead at 71 SAN JUAN. Puerto Rico (AP) Former Cuban prime min- ster Jose Miro Cardona died Saturday of a heart attack, a 'amily spokesman said. He was stressed to the cabinet his an- nounced policy of openness and candor and to have urged them to be affirmative in their rela- tions with news media. Sign Bills? President Ford must decide whether to sign or to veto number of bills left lying on the desk of Richard Nixon when Nixon resigned, including one that would allow Americans to own gold for the first time in four decades. The most important of these measures contains the federa appropriation for elementary and secondary education and includes an anti-busing provi- sion considered by many to be the strongest ever approved. The education bill was ap proved 81 to 15 by the senate and 323 to 83 by the house margins that are more thar enough to override a veto, al- though there are no indications Ford would veto the measure. The bill would forbid courts to order children bused beyond Ih school second closest to their homes, except where courts ruled that wider busing needed to protect a child's con- stitutional rights. Same Process TerHorst said that Ford would follow essentially the same process used by former Pres- ident Nixon in selecting a man to fill the second job in the ad- ministration. Ford has asked the Republi- can congressional leaders, Rep. Rhodes of Arizona and Sen. Scott of Pennsylvania, and Re- publican party Chairman George Bush to contact GOP congressmen and party leaders across the country to solicit their suggestions for a vice- presidential nominee. TerHorst said Ford also plans to seek advice on whom to name from members -of the cab- inet, the White House staff and Democratic leaders of congress, Speaker Albert of Oklahoma and Sen. Mansfield of Montana. TerHorst said each person has been invited to submit by next Wednesday three names order of preference. The recom- mendations will be mailed in sealed envelopes and addressed personally to the President "and he alone will handle he said. Beauty Contest TerHorst said the President will seriously consider each po- tential nominee suggested, "but I'm sure the President is not going to run a beauty contest and do it on who had the most 'otes." TerHorst was asked if the President might consider a Democrat and he replied that has not specified one way or the other the party affilia- tion. TerHorst said that if members of the public wanted !o express their preferences he was sure the mail office in the iVhite House would accept such letters but he did not indicate whether they would reach the Miro Cardona was professor i President's desk (Continued from Page 1.) prices has led many farmers to sell their cattle at ruinous prices, for fear they would lose uin more in the fall.

Leonard Smith was chargec with drunk driving and failure to have his vehicle under con- trol. He was treated for minor injuries at iMercy hospital and released. Police said Smith lost control of his car and it struck the Den- tal Arts building, 2727 First ave- nue East, causing an estimated damage to the building. Cedar Rapids firemen assist- ed in removing Smith from his ar.

That's when the biggest damage came." Beyond Help Donald Barrowman of the Missouri Crop and Livestock Reporting Service said much o: his state's corn also was beyonc help. Officials in Iowa which pro duced about one-fifth of the na lion's corn last year estimati that even with the rain, thi state will lose up to 30 percen of its corn crop. In 1973, the state produced 1.2 billion bushels of corn. This year, says Robert Louns- berry, secretary of agricul- ture, the yield will be about 800 million bushels. Forecaster Waite said in Des Hoines that he thinks the drouth s ended. "We've had our hot he said. Waite said the meteorological explanation of drouth is derived from a com- plex formula involving tempera- ture and moisture. But he said that a more meaningful term is "agricul tural drouth." It's kind of hare to define, he said, "but we cer tainly had it in southwest Iowa."

To Probe Spiral, Spending Link WASHINGTON (AP) The impact of federal spending on inflation will be explored this week by the new senate budget committee. The committee, in its first of- ficial act, will hear on Wednes- day from Kenneth Rush, who was President Nixon's chief eco- nomic counselor, and Gardner Ackley, an economic adviser during the Johnson administra- tion. There is sharp division in congress over whether federal spending can be cut as an anti- .nflation weapon without result- ing in disastrous employment.
