Heat Bearing Down In 'Pressure Cooker' By JOE DACY II Reporter-News Staff Writer A smothering high pressure system is expected to continue to send temperatures soaring near 103 degrees at JcasL through Tuesday, forecasters al the National Weather Service said Monday. Weatherman Jack Schnabel said a warming trend, which te- gan Thursday, is the result of a high pressure ridge centered over all of the area east of the Rockies. Schnabcl called the weather pattern "stagnated" and said the outlook Tor the next five days is the same, "The 'height' of'the atmos- phere has increased and is com- pressing and warming the Schnabel said. This pressure cooker effect began to be noticeable Friday when a high of 96 was recorded. Saturday's high was 33; Sun- clay's high, 102. SCIINABEI, SAID there is lit- tle hope that (lie system will budge. "This time of year there, is very little movement ill sys- he explained. As a'u example, Schnabel said the height of the ridge is meters and will drop only one about three feel, by Tuesday an amount Schnabcl called insignificant. A drop in the humidity has also added to the broiling sun's effect and southerly winds are not expected to cool the area much with a five to 10 mpli breeze. 'We do have a weak system approaching from the northwest, now in the Texas Sclinabel said..-. He-_rsaul.that i( the..system "holds its "identity" through and passes .Uirough the Abilene area, the progress of the healing process should slow 'but it won't cool us Weather Service records show that the record high for July is 104, set in 196J.

Stanley, is exacted lo continue to burn pastures and enhance the pros- pects for range fires "unless people are real careful."

Joggers, Not In the .street or Ike park, not In Ihe school yard just a block.away but right In my alley! Now I think peopfe ought lo take care of their bodies, be physically fit aid all that iwt why in (he alley? They wake up every dog hi Ike block. My dog starts barking, the dog next door starts harking and tbc dog en down the way and the dog on down... Help! Just because they rise and ihhK at S a.m. (hey Ihlik the whole world is up. Wky, in my own home, am I not entitled to sleep as lute as J want? A. First off, let us say there's no lord high commissioner who regulates jogging in Ihe alleys, 'parks, streets or school grounds. So forget about committing your jogger lo Sing Sing. You could Iry tacking friendly liltlc notices on Ihe back fence advising your jogger neighbors to try the park. Next tack up nol-so-friendly notices. Next maybe just tacks period in the alley would discourage your health-minded friends. Or a bear trap. Q. When were the last pure silver dollars minted In the U.S.? A. Ninety per cent silver dollars were last minted in 1935, says coin Dealer Buz Sawyer. No silver dollars were minted between '35 and '71, then in '71, '72, '73, "14 collectors could purchase 40 per cenl silver dollars from the mint for apiece. But the silver dollars we gel from the bank now don't oven have a dime's worth' of silver in them, only copper and nickel. Q. We have a farm about IV miles south of Abilene on Highway 36. I.asl week we had a grasstire that could hnvr gotten out of control if i( hadn't been for our neighbors. Anyway, the operator connected me with the fire department and they said they would "try" to get it (ruck ont here. About 15 minutes later (key called back, said they couldn't come. We were told (o can Merkel, Clyde and finally Abilene Fire Department. It sctms we arc out of all their districts. Jnst who do we call when our house is burning down? A. Best we can figure, you're in Calla- hari County and the Callahan County Judge says for grassftrcs (o call the Coun- ty Commissioner in Oplin or the fire de- partment in Clyde. Botti have fire trucks that fight grassfircs. House fires arc an- olher .story. For houses on Ihe county line, Judge Charles Dyer says you should use Abilene firemen. The sheriff's department or any county official is authorized to call out Ihe Abilene Fire Department for house fires. (J. Where can iny children gel a baby raccoon for a pet without buying one in the pet slorc? A. You could gel a (rap and catch one, we suppose. Game Warden Dale Evans suggest Ihe "Have a Heart" wire trap since It won't harm the animals. Sardines make good bait. He feels that any rancher wouldn't mind a trap near his bam since there are lots of raccoons around (earing up feed sacks. Bcticr'bc sure to get the rancher's permission firsl, though. Kecms as if it would be easier just to buy a raccoon but on second thought it wouldn't be nearly as much fun.

Cox alleged that Heinecke testified falsely to the Senate Judiciary Commit- tee two years ago when he said he had no way of know- ing whether former Ally. Gen. John N. Mitchell knew of a financial commilmcnt by a subsidiary o f International Telephone Telegraph Corp. lo the 1972 Republican Nation- al Convention prior lo July 31, 1971. Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-.Mass., a meniber of the'Ju- diciary Committee, asked Ite- necke about Mitchell's knowl- edge .of Ihe ITT pledge white the panel was considering Ihe. nomination of Diehard G. Kleindienst to be attorney gen- eral. 'The question is put some- what Ihe judge said of Kennedy's question. Cox had argued that Kenne- dy's question specifically called for an impression.

The one remaining count against Reinecke accuses him of lying to the cornmiltce ahoul when he first discussed the convention site wilh Mitch- ell. lieinccke told the committee thai he first discussed San Diego as a site of Ihe conven- tion in September 1971 after an out-of-eoiirl sclllcinent of an ITT antitrust case. Hut the proscculin contends that Heinecke discussed convention wilh Mitchell in lelephone call on May 21, 1971. before Hie ITT case was set- tled. The ITT case was re- solved out of court in July 1071. I'arker said (he remaining count had enough merit so Ihiil a jury should decide on it. The judge's ruling on (lit: two counts was made before the jury entered the courtroom. Several weeks ago the spe- cial p r o s e c u I o r 's office dropped another perjury count against Heincckc, saying it would have been necessary lo call former While House aide II. II. Ilaldeman as a witness if the charge were pressed. Ilaldeman is slated lo go on trial Sept. 9 in the Watergate cover-up case. Thai count alleged thai llc- necke lied to the Judiciary Commitlce when he said he firsl discussed the possibility of bringing the 1972 Republi- can convention to San Diego in April 1971. lleinecke told Ihe Judiciary Committee that on that dale he was in Washington and at- tended u social reception lo promote economic develop- ment in his stale, "and we discussed Ihe possibility al.
