The subpoena, mailed by Su- perior Court Judge Gordon liinger's clerk on Feb. 4, had nol arrived in Washington, D.C., Superior Court by late Monday. The judge said, "I'm ren- dered speechless." .Los Angeles I'oslmasler James J. Symbol'said such a long delay in delivery of regis- tered mail "is nol normal al all" and that he was ordering a trace on Ihe letter. Ringer issued the order for Nixon's testimony at Ihe re- quest of Ihe President's for- mer lop domestic adviser, John D. Ehrlichman. The document asks Nixon lo testify at a hearing Feb. 25 and at (he (rial of Ehrlichman and two olher former While House aides, G. Gordon I.iddy and David Young on April 15. Liddy's attorney, Charles Gessler, raised Hie possibility that the Feb. 25 hearing might have to be poslponed if the subpoena is nol found and de- livered soon. The While House has said Nixon will resist the order lo testify, but il is likely lhal the Los Angeles hearing "would not proceed until the mailer of his possible appearance is settled. The Washington court, un- der Ihe uniform code covering ont-of-state witnesses, was to hold a hearing on the mailer, following receipt of Die sub- poena. The Washington court could either order the subpoe- na served or quashed. Ehrlichman, L i d d y and Young arc charged with bur- glary and conspiracy in Ihc 1971 break-in al the office of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist. Ehrlichman also is charged with perjury. The men conlend thai, as federal officers, they acted le- gally in connection, with the break-in at the olfice of Dr. Lewis Fielding while Ihey' were members of a White House investigative unit known as Ihc plumbers. Ehrlichman, joined in his molion by Ihe otliei'.s, asked lhal Nixon testify aboul. Ihe orders he gave -the .plumbers when the unit was formed. They seek lo have him con- firm (heir role as federal offi- cers in what Ihey say was a national security operation. Kllsbcrg, a former goverji- mcnl researcher, leaked the secret Pentagon papers study of U.S. involvement in Iiulo: china' to the news media. Oil Only Slight WASHINGTON (AP) The conference of 13 major oil con- suming countries ends today with, the expectation thai il will schedule another high-level meeting al which producers and consumers, including those from Die' developing countries, will participate.

Roady and Tommy Ross, bolh of'Clydc, were treat- ed and re-leased and Sid Saver- ance of 810 Davis in Abilene was admitted to Hendrick Memorial Hospital.

The range fire was still smouldering Tuesday morning, and was apparently aggravated by a slrong soulb wind, bill was under control. Witnesses said pieces of burn- ing lire from the explosion sot off (lie range fire in a wide area. Bui otherwise speeches by foreign and finance ministers Monday appeared lo confirm the prediction that the prob- lems of Hie energy shortage go far beyond what a two-day meeting could resolve. A lo be issued loniglit will show agreement on the seriousness of the situation and on (lie need for more study and further consultations. But, il is likely lo camouflage the gap between the Unilcd Slates, on one extreme, and France, on the other. The Uniled Stales, represent- ed bv Secretary of Stale Henry A. Kissinger and Treasury Sec- retary George 1'. Shullz, is pleading for complete coopera- tion and promising assistance lo its friends and allies who are far more dependent on Arab oil than in this country. Michel Juberl, France's for- eign minister, does nol want to head of such close cooperation which, he contends, is. impos- sible because Ihe Uniled Slates, a major oil producer, cannot be compared with olher countries that' have to import every drop of oil they need. Jobcrl, in an uncompromising speech, said that Europe must be free to lackle Ihe problem and that il was "nol desirable to establish a-system of prelim- .inary consultations with the other big consuming such as the United Stales. He also argued with Kissin- ger on another point. Kissinger asked for "agreed rules of con- duel" in dealings with the pro- ducers. The consumers, Jobert said; should-not try lo define a "new code let us not seek lo establish or lo impost- a new world energy order." Kissinger .suggested that Ihe conference set up some follow- up mechanism he called il a ''coordinating group" but Jo- herl did not like this idea ci-' ther. -'France, for her part, would not guarantee such a be il working groups, an action group for he said. Kissinger, as many limes be- fore in speeches and press con- ferences, again was critical about bilateral deals such as Jobert concluded in two recent lours of the Middle F.ast. "The only result of unman- bilateralism will be to bid up prices perhaps even be- yond present levels, and lo stabilize them at levels thai will ruin Ihe countries making (he bilateral arrangements be- fore they ruin everyone Kissinger told Ihe conference. A few hours lalcr, at a While House dinner for the ministers, President Nixon backed up Kis- singer on Ibis point. II might be good politics to make such deals over Ihe short (crm, "but over the long term it is bad Nixon said in his toast, .Jobert in his conference speech said (here was nolhing wrong with such bilateral ar- rangements, and he was sup- ported by lirilain's Sir Alec- Douglas Home. 3 Coed Scholars Move Into Finals Classified Comics Editorials Horoscope Hasorlol Palicnls Obituaries.........
