Dunn thinks "anybody can deal in it.” But to get the gold to sell in the first place, he said the merchant must tie a licensed dealer. The Government Services Administration says banks may accept gold as collateral for loans, said Dunn But he added banks may not use gold as cash to satisfy reserve requirement!. Dunn predicts that. “Like all new things, it will be a fad for awhile. “But when the price goes up, it may lose its appeal.” Ex.-Gov.Earle Dies BRYN MAWR, Pa (AP) -George Earle HI, 84, the scion of an old Philadelphia family who became Pennsylvania's first Democratic governor in this century, died Monday of pneumonia Mrs. Samuel Schuyler Committal services for Madge Schuyler, 95, will be conducted Saturday at ll a rn. in Shiloh cemetery by the Rev.

Smith said the inventory was increased as a hedge against price increases and possible shortages of fast sell-mg items, hut said less inventory would also save storage and handling costs. Assistant    Department Director James Pedelty said the large inventory was necessary to avoid shortages of certain items. He added that more and more items are in demand, thus ne*ce*ssitating a larger inventory Smith s annual audit, for the fiscal year ended June 311, showed liquor salens were* up $5 million over the last fiscal year. The auditor said the results of the agency’s operation for the year were “in conformity with generally accepted auditing accounting principles applicable to government agencies.” May Have Been "Used” by Nixon Aides—Graham DALLAS, Ti’xas (AP) -Evangelist Billy Graham says he may have been “used” by members of the Nixon administration who capitalized on his friendship with Richard M Nixon to hoister the former President’s image. "Maybe I was naive at that tune; maybe I was used,” Graham said during a news conference here Monday. Nixon himself never attempted to exploit their relationship, hut "some of his staff may have tried to do so,” the evangelist said Henry A. Rhoda Henry A.

That committee operated from late 1970 until July 1973. The ( IA w as represented on the panel by counterintelligence chief .James J. Angleton and his aide Richard Ober, both of whom have been identified in published reports as the managers of the CIA’s domestic spying effort. Dean denied that the intelligence committee had engaged in illegal domestic spying, hut his remarks about the CIA were not followed up by the senators and were overlooked in the torrent of his sensational accusations against Nixon. (iot More Men Efforts to reach the former counsel for amplification of his remarks were unsuccessful. Dean, 35, is serving a I-to 4-year prison term after pleading guilty to a charge of conspiracy to obstruct justice in connection with the Watergate cover-up. Two sources with first-hand knowledge have said that early in the Nixon administration the CIA transferred additional personnel into counterintelligence to work for Cher. Angleton has denied he was ever involved in illegal domestic spying and Oiler, now with the National Security Council, has declined to comment. Since the allegations were published, Angleton has resigned and his three* top aides have said they too are leaving the agency as of Tuesday. The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Tues., Dec. 31, \f?4    3 C.R. Man Faces Assault Count after Knife Incident (Continued from Page I ) "There is a great deal of high fever, even among adults, and most of it seems to lie in the upper respiratory system. "Some is accompanied by vomiting and diarrhea, and in many cases it seems to he going through entire families.” Fever, Sere Throat "Fever, sore throat and cough. Nobody has really tagged it with a name," commented another doctor. "There has been some tonsillitis mixed in with it too. ’’ One nurse said the doctor’s office where she works was crammed with coughers and sniffers. "The doctors say it is flu of various and sundry types.” It apparently arrived in early December, according to one pharmacist, "and really hit right before Christmas. They have been coming here in families, and coming back,” he said Same Pneumonia "We’ve l>een seeing a lot of it,” a spokesman at Mercy hospital family practice center said. "There is no name for it. People are developing respiratory complications, and in some cases pneumonia.” One physician said he doesn't recall "being this busy at this time of the year in 17 years of practice.” High fevers, chest pains, harsh coughs and aches characterized most of his patients. "During the holiday period, many j>eople who become ill have a tendencey to push off going to the doctor, hut many simply can't put this off.” He prescribed that persems with symptoms of the "noname” flu "stay home tonight and go to tied Forget about the felicities,” he said There have tH*en no known deaths from the sickness. The usual advice of getting plenty of rest and drinking lots of liquids may or may not be adequate to shake whatever it is. Many persons are seeing their doctor after the illness lingers for a couple of days without improvement evident. One thing is certain. Drug stores are really busy.

Election Martinez Assignment Senator Howard Baker (R-Tenn ), vice-chairman of the sedate Watergate committee, has reported that convicted Watergate burglar Eugenio Martinez was given a domestic assignment by a CIA case* officer who was his regular contact at the agency. "It is known that Martinez met with his last case officer on June 6, 1972 and at that time had at least two reporting assignments, i.e. maritime operation information and information pertaining to possible demonstrations at the Miami convention*, ” Baker said in a report on possible CIA involvement in Watergate. Hunt, convicted along with Barker and Martinez in the Watergate breakin, told a closed session of the Watergate committee on IM*. 18, 1973, that he was chief of covert action in the agency’s Domestic Operations Division, which he said was set up in 1962 following the unsuccessful CIA-backed Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba. According to a partial transcript of that hearing, Hunt said the division had field offices in Boston, Chicago, San Francisco and other U.S. cities but denied that he had participated in any illegal domestic surveillance operations. The Domestic Ojierations Division is separate from Angleton s counterintelligence unit, hut both have l>een linked in published reports to the domestic spying charges One source has indicated that the domestic operations unit may have gathered the raw intelligence data for analysis by the counterintelligence section. Watergate- (Continued from Page I ) the Watergate grand jury in April, 1973 One bv Bae? Some lawyers speculated that the jury was going through the charges against the defendants one by one, beginning with Mitchell, who is named first in the 23-count indictment. Dean, I .aRue and Mugruder ail had testified about meetings with Mitchell rn which political espionage plans were discussed. All three pled guilty to obstruction of justice. After denying the transcript requests, Sirica told the jurors they could have specific portions of testimony reread or could listen again to any of the 34 tapes introduced at the trial Sniper (Continued from Page 1.) date for the 10th district senate seat. The vacancy in the loth was created by the resignation of former State Sen. Michael Blouin (D-Dubuque) after he was elected to the Second district’s congressional seat on Nov. 5. Stockbroker State Sen.-elect Carr, 37, a Dubuque stockbrocker, had the advantage of two years of legislative experience over Es-moil, 33, a former newscaster in Dubuque and a newcomer to politics. Jochum, 23, Dubuque, winner of the 19th house seat, is a John Deere company employe and part-time Ixiras college student in Dubuque. Miss Kann, 30, is a Dubuque junior high teacher. Tauke, 24, a Dubuque lawyer, was too young by a year to run against Carr for the senate seat. But his second-effort for the 20th district house seat paid off handsomely in victory. He lost by only 1.110 votes to Carr for tho same seat last Nov. 5 — 4,958 to 3,-848. Past Chairman Tauke is immediate past Dubuque county Republican chairman and still holds the Second district Republican chairmanship. His opponent, Sullivan, is a 21-year-old lauras student A factor in the Tauke-Sulli-van race was that Sullivan, from Armstrong in northwest Iowa, has been a Dubuque resident only since attending Loras, while Tauke is a Dubuque native. Another factor was that in winning the nomination, Sullivan defeated Pat Smith, spouse of Donna Smith, Dubuque county Democratic chairman, which may have resulted in some disgruntled Democrats voting for Republican Tauke in Monday’s election. Senate Democratic Leader George Finley (D-Des Moines) welcomed Carr as "a good asse*!” to the Democratic senate* caucus and said he "was pleased with the result of the election."
