Hacked Out That, Martin said, was when le backed out. In other testimony, the youth said Nowlin pointed a gun at lirn on March 10 and said if he went to the police, he would 'get" him. During cross examination, Martin admitted going out of .own with Nowlin and Conner on March 9 to "case" a tavern that three planned to rob the next day. Martin said he was ;oing to participate. The prosecution is expected to call two former Linn county jail cellmates of Nowlin's to the stand Thursday afternoon. Conner Last The final witness is scheduled to be Conner. He was broughl here from the penitentiary at Fort Madison Wednesday. Nowlin's lawyers have not-in- dicated what, if any, their de- fense will be. The prosecution, according to Jones County Attorney David Remley, will rest Friday morn- ng. The trial may continue into next week. Judge Hyland has said he will nol hold court Saturday. The last of the prosecution's expert witnesses, Cedar Rapids pathologist Dr. Regis Weland, testified Wednesday afternoon in the murder trial of George Now- lin and was followed by two wit- nesses whom the stale attempt- ed to use to indirectly implicate howed male sperm cells arge numbers." (fw of the stale's arguments is that the Nowlin he the murder of was raped prior to her death.) On cross examination by the defense, the doctor stated that n view of the life span of such cells, intercourse could have oc- curred up to 30 hours before the death. Also during questioning by one of Nowlin's two lawyers Dr. Weland said Miss Connolly fully clothed when he firs viewed her and that her clothing was not in disarray. Tresa Conner, .whose husband Atwell, was convicted in Jones county for Miss Connolly's murder, testified that she ant her six children were with her husband and Nowlin when one of the two shotguns allegedly used in the crime was thrown into the Cedar river. Near City Facility Mrs. Conner said Nowlin told her he "wanted to get rid of the that he "didn't want to get in any trouble with it." She claimed the firearm was dis carded near the sanitation de partment in Cedar Rapids March 17, 'one day after Miss Connolly's body was discovered. Mrs. Conner testified that shi ater led the police to the loca on. She also told of occurrences on March 9, the day before Mis Connolly was reportedly killec Her husband and Steve Martin she said, came to the Connc lome near Bertram to pick u Conner's shotgun. Mrs. Conner's credibility as a witness was disputed by the defense in cross-examination. Questions Challenged One of Nowlin's court-appoint- ounly, in which three to five icriff's deputies were constant- within a few feet of the de- endant, security during this rial has been more relaxed. Normally the Cerro Gordo ounty sheriff and two of his eputies Jiave been in the couri- oom. But, at times, there has ieen but one guard near Now- in. When asked of the compara- ivcly loose security, Cerro Gordo county Sheriff G..D. Allen aid, "It may seem like it, but Ne'rc watching him." Nowlin lad two scrapes with guards tiring the Story county trial, nduding one at the conclusion vhen he swung at one of the deputies and had to be re- strained. Emotionless Throughout the current trial, Nowlin, has ben motionless. He occasionally whispers to Ihe depulies and to his two lawyers. During testimony he often makes notes, with pencils he carries in his coat pocket, on a .egal pad which he takes to and 'mm the courtroom in a legal 'older. At times, he wears black lorn-rimmed glasses. Unlike the first trial, Nowlin's wife Dana has not been present, fhe Jones county sheriff, Ralph Albaugh, said he had been in- 'ormed the two were separated. le did: not know if the reported separation was a legal separa- ion or not, but Nowlin has been confined in the Linn county jail' and men's reformatory at Ana- mosa since March. ed lawyers implied until his line of questioning was chal- lenged by the state that Mrs. Conner's motive for testifying against Nowlin was tied to her husband's conviction on the same charge. Another witness, Donald Coman of Cedar Rapids, said Nowlin left a pump-type, sawed- off shotgun (the one shown in court) with him to be repaired. Coman testified that Nowlin picked it up March 17 arid said lie "wanted to feet rid of it be- fore it got him in any trouble" Maureen Connolly. Dr. Weland, who performed .he autopsy on Miss Connolly in !owa City's Mercy hospital March 17, described in vivid de- ,ail the condition of the dead girl's body when he examined il .he day after it was found in rural Jones county. He said there were two major wounds, both caused by shotgun blasts: One was in the back of the head and another in the lower vaginal-rectal area. Head Wound First It is his opinion that the heat wound was inflicted first, per- haps three to five minutes be- fore the other. The cause of death, nccordin] to the doctor, was "definitely" the shooting into the head, which he said "literally made mush" of the brain. He listed the death as "im- mediate." The other gunshot, the patho- logist stated, entered Ihe body through the clothing at approxi- mately the area of the anal opening. He said the shell frag- ments passed deeply into the pelvic region and destroyed much of the vaginal canal, (lie during his August trial in Story because "the bad already killed a couple of people." Co- man said Nowlin told him lie was "gonna throw it in the Ce- dar river." Security Relaxed The defense, noting thai Coman was a small arms spe- cialist in the army, asked the witness why he testified that the gun Nowlin had was a Win Chester while telling the police March 19 that the weapon was a Remington. In contrast to the very tigh security surrounding Nowlin (Continued from Page 1.) ident might have made him more susceptible to the clots. Apparently some time in the last few days a clot in a leg 'ein, or a piece of a clot, be- came dislodged and began mov- ng toward the heart, pushed along1 by the blood. Nixon has no chest pain from the clot, Lungren said. Nixon's wife, Pat, has been 'isiting her husband daily, driv- ing to the hospital from their seaside villa in San Clemente, 50 miles south of Long Beach, a hospital official said. Telephone calls, letters and telegrams continued to pour inlo the hospital, most expressing encouragement. For the second straight day a small plane char- tered by a supporter flew over the hospital towing a banner reading, "Nixon We Love You. And God Loves You." But several callers made threats, such as "Kill 'Let him die" and "I'm going to get hospital officials said. One told police on Monday he had planted a bomb in the hospital.
