Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - January 9, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 2A I hr Oriar Rapids Gazette: Wed.. Jan. !).    1**71 Planners Okay Annexation Idea Reject The city planning commission voted Tuesday to approve a preliminary plat of Sylvan lane first addition, after prolonged debate on whether the subdivision should be annexed to the city. The land is located about 350 feet cast of the city limits, near the end of Indian Hill road SE. The plat had been approved earlier by Linn county, but required approval from the city because it is within two miles of the city limits. A committee report recommended against approval because developer Jerome Pad-zcnsky plans to install individual wells and septic tanks for houses built in the subdivision. The city engineering department recommended, because the area is very close to city services, that Pad-zensky petition for annexation and connect to city facilities. Several residents of the arca appeared at the meeting to protest annexation. Padzensky said he is also opposed. He said he plans to have lots of at least one acre in the area, but if forced to install city water and sewer facilities he would have to create smaller lots to recoup his investment. After discussion, the planning commission rejected. 6-5, a motion to deny approval of the plat.

Didn't Know of Gift For the first time, the White House said Nixon had no know I edge of a 1969 contribution of $100,000 from Associated Milk Producers, Inc., delivered to the President’s attorney, Herbert Kalmbach. However, it acknowledged that Charles Colson, former White House special counsel, wrote a memo to Nixon iii 1970 that AMP1 had pledged $2 unlit acquist billion and to restrict lions for IO Nears. It treated ITT’s San pledge as an entirely separate and unrelated matter, saying: “The President was unaware of any commitment by ITT to make a contribution ... at ihe time he took action on the anti trust ease. In fact, the President’s anti-trust actions took place entirely in April of 1971 several weeks before the ITT pledge was even made." The settlement was agreed to in principle oil July 31, 1971.

Commissioners said they needed the extra funds because of increased operating costs. Alert Linked to Missile Thefts saw secret service agents racing through San Clemente in !two siren-sounding police ears and inquired if the President had been in an auto accident. Deputy Press Secretary Ger-j ald Warren at first denied agents were passengers in the California highway patrol vehicles. Later he corrected himself but said no emergency was involved. This led to speculation Nixon might have set out in a hurry, leaving some of his bodyguard to scramble in pursuit. Warren had disclosed earlier Tuesday that Nixon and his house guest C. G “Bebe" Rebozo, took a long unannounced drive Monday Again Warren that anti-trust cases should not be based on attacking bigness for its own sake. The White House said Nixon “expressed irritation with the failure" of Richard McLaren, then assistant attorney general for anti-trust, “to follow his policy.” It said Nixon telephoned Deputy Atty. Gen. Richard Kleindienst "and ordered that the appeal not be filed ” Resignation Threat The statement said that two days later Nixon withdrew the order after Mitchell reasoned with him that Griswold, “as a personal matter . . . had prepared his brief for appeal and would resign were the appeal did so only in response to a re- not to proceed.” BRUSSELS (AP) — Several porter s inquiry at a news brief- The White House said an ap-small ground-to-air missiles ing.    peal was filed, but a subsequent have been stolen in recent Other sources reported that settlement resulted in “the iarg-weeks from European military Nixon took at least three unan- est single devestiture in cor-depots, Belgian government flounced drives earlier in his porate history.” with IIT resources said Wednesday.    California stay, which began quired to dispose of subsidiaries They said the disappearance Dee. 26.    with annual sales of about $1 of the missiles touched off the alert that went into effect at European airports several days ago The sources indicated that some have been recovered The missing missiles resemble World war II bazookas.
