Defendant Asks Order To Allow Probe of Tower  The defendant in a $500,000 lawsuit arising out of last year’s collapse of the KCRG television tower Thursday requested a federal court injunction to allow investigation of the site of the accident.  Gunner A. Olsen Corp., a Port Washington, N.Y., engineering firm which was modifying the tower, has been sued in Cedar Rapids federal court by Lillian Greiner of Independence, whose husband, Elmer, was killed by the falling structure.  The tower, located near Walker, collapsed Oct. 3, 1973, killing five men. Four were employes of the Olsen company, while Greiner worked for Hoffman Bros, Inc., Independence.  Mrs. Greiner has charged the New York firm with negligence in its work to strengthen the tower for the addition of Iowa Educational Broadcasting Network transmitting equipment.  Following the accident, Cedar Rapids Television Co., owner and occupier of the land, closed the area.  Gunnar Olsen, however, was later allowed to have an inspection made of the area around the tower. But in the petition filed Thursday, it is claimed that the television company has not permitted inspection of the tower itself.  Gunnar Olsen argued that in order to prepare a defense for the various court actions against the firm, further metallurgical tests must be made.  The petition asks for an injunction from the court to allow this examination and to prohibit KCRG from going ahead with a new tower on the site.  A hearing on the matter will be held Sept. 6 in Cedar Rapids federal court.  ma Phi Beta sorority, a life member of the Iowa State University Alumni Assn., and past vice-president and board member of the Iowana Council of j Campfire Girls.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The special Watergate prosecutor, Leon Jaworski, has drawn even tighter the curtain of silence surrounding his deliberations on the case of Richard Nixon. While leaving the next move to Jaworski, President Ford has said he will render tile final judgment in any prosecution of his predecessor.  In the aftermath of Ford’s statements at a news conference Wednesday, Jaworski and his staff not only declined comment but even refused to en tertain questions.  Ford said he subscribes to the view of those who hold that Nixon should be spared from prosecution in the Watergate case that forced him from office.  Despite that, the President said, Jaworski “has an obligation to take whatever action he sees fit . . . and that should include any and all individuals.”  But Ford made clear that he, as President, would make the final judgment.  Since Nixon left office, Jaworski has agonized in private over how to deal with the case of the former President who, while still in office, was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Watergate cover-up.  Ford was asked how he planned to avoid future Water-gates.  “I will be as candid and as I possibly can,” he said. “I will expect any individuals in my administration  Valentine Erne Dies, Services Saturday  COGGON r— Valentine H Erne, 58, superintendent for Gjellefald Construction, and a resident of the Coggon area for the past nine years, died Thursday in a Cedar Rapids hospital.

What our Customers Say:

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
