DEATHS (Continued from Page U so as to assure that public opin: ion will accept this view Proxmire Plan Senator Proxmire (D-Wis.) Friday proposed a constitutional amendment to prohibit a Pres- ident from granting a pardon unless a person has been con- victed and sentenced in a court of law. "President Ford's pardon of Richard Nixon may meet the letter of the Constitution but it clearly violates its Proxmire said. "Tile power of the President to pardon should extend to prov- en violations of the law, not to every illegal act that an individ- ual man might conceivably have committed during his period in public office." Proxmire said his amendment would "preserve the essential right of our legal system to try citizens for their misdeeds, ycl it would preserve the power of the President lo forgive offenses in a spirit of charily and com- passion."

Tenants in the building arc being asked to provide informa- tion about the nature of service they would require if the postal sub-station were moved into the building on the southeast corner of First avenue and First street. Seda emphasized, however, that nothing has been decided and that it will be months be- fore a decision is reached. "We're studying to see if the costs would be reduced. We re- ally have no idea now."

Ford added a Harvard pro- fessor (o his While House legal Staff Thursday and elevated a one-time law partner to cabinet rank. Acting press secretary John Hushen said Phillip Areeda, a Harvard professor since 18 will become counsel to the Pres- ident on Oct. 14, serving until then as a part-time consultant. Philip Buclien, the former law partner who holds the title of counsel to the President, was given cabinet rank by Ford.

Areeda is described as an ex- per on anli-lrusl law, but Hushen said this wasn't the reason for the appointment. He ;aid Areeda will be "a prime assistant to Mr. Buchen in all areas." Areeda. 44, was an assistant special counsel to President Eisenhower and in lilliO served as executive director of line cabinet task force on oil import control.

Reports World Inflation Easing, U.S. Still Hurt PARIS The rate of inflation appears to be easing slightly on the average for in- dustrial nations, but the U.S. was among those continuing to show an increase, the Organiza- tion for Economic Cooperation and Development reported Fri- day. The OECD said the average inflation rate hit a record 13.3 percent for the year ended July 31 but dropped back to 12 per- cent on an annual basis for the three months ending with July. Pressure on prices continues, the 24-member state organiza- tion reported. The 13.3 percent yearly rate compares with 7.7 percent in 1973, 4.7 percent in 1972 and an annual average of 3.7 percent during the period 1961-71. The highest inflation rate for the 12 months ending in July was 43.8 percent in Iceland. Greece followed with 31.8 per- cent, with Turkey and Portugal showing 25.9 percent and Japan 25.2 percent. The figures Trial Slated In Aggravated Burglary Case Terry Kayc Dye, 18, accused if aggravated burglary, robbery with aggravation, and carrying concealed weapon, pled in- iccenl to all three charges in Jnn district court Friday morn- ng. Judge Robert Osmundson set i p.m. Oct. 10 as the time for a pre-trial hearing on the admis- sabilily of evidence, including statements and a search made at the time of Dye's arrest. Dye is accused of aggravated >urglary in the June 12 incident at the home of Donald Hladky, 71, of 3218 Bever avenue SE, in which was stolen. Hladky and his 69-year-old vife Selma were beaten during .he burglary. Trial in thai case is sel for Oct. 21. The robbery with aggravation charge against Dye alleges he robbed the PDQ store, 225 Edge- .vood road NW, al gunpoint on July 18. That trial is set for Oct. The concealed weapon charge :oncerns a .22 caliber pellet pis- ol allegedly in Dye's possession on Aug. 2. Dye is being held in Hie Linn counly jail on bond. Search Warrant Hearings Yield No Objections No objections were made by defense attorneys at hearings involving forfeiture of items ob- tained through search warrants executed against the homes and a car of three youths accused of murdering a 61-year-old man. Defense atlqrneys did not ap- :ear at the hearings held Fri- day morning in Linn district court, and Judge August Hon- sell, jr., ruled there was no reason why the items seized should not be held by the slate. The items seized can be used in evidence against Eddie Ayers 23, of 1116 Twelfth avenue SE, vclly Johnson, 16, of Hie same address, and Steven L.

According to Ihe return of the President Asks Cut in Spending, Vote on Rocky WASHINGTON (AP) Call- ing for a proud new era of Amer- ican achievement, P r e s i d cnt Ford lias sent congress a list of the legislation be wants it to adopt this year. Ford gave lop priority to cut- ting federal spending in Ihe mes- sage sent Thursday, and indi- cated he has given up hope for passage of a comprehensive health insurance plan in this session. Ford urged prompt confirma- tion of Nelson A. Rockefeller as vice-president. And he urged congress to re- sist temptations lo add to spend- ing totals on legislation under consideration.

(AP) The State Bar of California says I is recommending to the Cali- :ornia supreme court that it re- ject former President Nixon's resignation as a lawyer. Rejection would leave Nixon open to possible disbarment. Bar President Brent Able said Thursday that the recommenda- tion by the bar's board of gov- ernors was made because Nixon iiad refused to acknowledge Uiat he faced possible disciplinary action by the bar. The board of governors also asked that any acceptance of Nixon's resignation, received on Thursday, not prevent the bar from disciplining Nixon if he later asks to be reinstated. The bar has teen considering for more than a year whether to begin formal hearings on Nix- on's conduct in Ihe Watergate af- fair. Nixon's 'attorney, Dean Butler, disclosed on Monday that Nixon planned 'to resign as a lawyer and not pratcicc law again, but he denied that it had anything lo do with possible disciplinary ac lion. tapes or papers lo the pub- Westphall said. 1m Mivnn didn't, nlan on havinf a fire." Not Assured But Bevill said under terms of :he agreement "the government s not assured of getting any of any kind to preserve :or history." Sampson acknowledged that Nixon could not be compelled under the agreement to release any ic. But he said Nixon promised in the agreement to release some and the GSA chief said he s confident Nixon will keep his word. He also said White House law- yer Philip Buchen has said that ISA would listen to any tapes hat were going to be destroyed. Bevill said that is not part of the agreement however. Deputy GSA counsel Herman Earth said the agreement does assure thai papers can three years and that none of Ihe lapes can be destroyed for five years. Pair Accused of Theft at Firm Two persons were arrested by Linn county sheriff's deputies early Friday on a charge of lar- ceny. Jeffrey Morgan Wise, 19, ol 3424 Adeline court SW, and a male juvenile were arrested a Case Implement Co., highway 30 west of Cedar Rapids. They are accused of taking some gas, a fire extinguisher, and a can of motor oil from a truck belonging to Case Imple- ment. Wise was released Friday morning on his own recog- lizance and the juvenile was leld for juvenile authorities.

He joined the depart- nentfull time on June 1, worked jntil July 30, then failed to for further duty, authori- ies said. He gave no notice thai he was his Tama post. However, he worked as a po- ice officer al Garwin for about hree weeks. He planned to leave a door ajar, then notify police he had found the door unlocked. When jolice arrived, they would find :he atlempted fire and would search the building. Westphall would then be able to assist in the investigation. "Things didn't go the way 1 none of Nixon's be destroyed for didn'l plan on having a fire." When he returned to the high school 15 minutes after igniting the paper and found the fire out control, Westphall said he "scared to death" and he radioed police. Followimg testimony Friday morning, the jury was lo be taken lo visit the hallway at Prairie high school where the fire occurred. Two Keys Sampson said his assurance of access to Ihe Walergale tapes and papers, which are to be stored in a vaull near San Clemenle, is Ihe fad that he has one of two keys needed lo open it, while Nixon has Ihe other. Rep. Royball (D-Calif.) re- sponded that "the federal gov- ernment has ended up with Ihe second key lo Mr. Nixon's vaull and that is about all we get." GSA counsel Harold Trimmer said if Sampson tried to gel court-ordered tapes out of the vault and Nixon refused to use his key to open il, he could be forced lo under penalty of con- tempt of court.

U.S. Declines To Try Jacobsen in Spite of Judge WASHINGTON the refusal of a federal judge to agree, the justice department says it will keep its word and not prosecute milk-fund figure Jake Jacobsen. The department said Thurs- day it will not prosecute Jacob- sen on charges of misapplication of funds of a savings and loan association, a move agreed to in return for Jacobsen's guilty plea to a bribery charge and testi- mony against former Treasury Secretary Connally. A move to drop the charges was rejected last Friday by Judge Robert Hill of Dallas, who said justice would not be served. Nevertheless, the justice de- partment said it will not prose- cute the case against Jacobsen, a former lawyer for Associated Milk Producers, Inc. Neither Jacobsen nor Hill would comment on the action. However, in his earlier opin- ion, Hill indicated that his court had the option to appoint a special counsel lo prosecute the case.
