CITY FINAL 15 CENTS NUMBER CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, TUESDAY, OCTOBER II; ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW Nixon Staff Costing U. S. WASHINGTON (AP) Sal- aries for Ilic 64 federal em- ployes, excluding secret service agents, assigned to former Pros- Nixon' California cstatc subcommittee a r e reported agreed on postponing President I1' o r d s historic appearance Thursday for a week if the Wa- tergate cover-up trial jury has not been sequestered by then. Chairman Hungale (D-Mo.) said Ihis subcommittee "will make a decision one way or the oilier Ihis afternoon and an- nounce it." He said Watergate special prosecutor Leon Ja- worski had expressed concern over prclrial publicity from the Ford appearance. Rep. Mayne (R-Iowa) said he was Ihe only member that strongly objected to Ihe post- ponement al a closed-door sub- committee meeting Monday. He said that although no vole was taken lo measure sentiment then, several oilier members ar- gued Ford's appearance should be postponed until the following Thursday if Ihe jury has not been picked and sequestered. Selection Slow In what research indicates may be a presidential first. Ford lias promised lo answer 14 questions before Ihe subcommil- Ice on his pardon for former President Nixon. Jury selection was slow and! prospects appeared poor that it could be completed and Ihe jurors .sequestered and thus shielded from newspapers and news, broadcasts before Ihe Thursday appearance. Emerging from Ihe closed- door questioning Monday, U. S. District Judge John Sirica said good progress was being made in selecting a panel from which the final 12 jurors and G alter- nates will be drawn. He said he hoped lo seat Ihe jury by Ihe end of the week. I would have assured government But Ihe prosecution suggested access lo Ihe lapes for up lo Senator Montoya (D-N. M.) lias revealed. Monloya. citing figures pro- vided to him by John March, counselor to President Ford, said Monday that secret service protection at !he San Clcmente home was costing a year. The yearly cost of secret serv- ice protection and other person- nel at Nixon's Key Biscayne, Fla., complex is more than Montoya said.
