"Until his last moments he worked for na- tional, continental and universal unity He has given his country the greatest grandeur and human Chrislianism." Peron's death occurred after his doctors issued three medical bulletins detailing his last hours. The communiques said Peron had taken a turn for the worse, then that his heart had stopped briefly, then that he was gravely ill. He was first elected president in 1946 after taking part in a military coup three years earli- er. He served nine stormy years until he was thrown oui by the army in 1955 in a bloody coup engineered by political foes in the middle class, the in- telligentsia and the Roman Catholic Church. He barely escaped with his life, fleeing into exile aboard a Paraguayan gunboat. Thundering Cheers Yet 18 years later on June 20, 1973, at 77, Peron came home to thundering cheers from many of the same people who applauded (Continued: Page 3.

The DOT legislation called for appointment of one member of the state aeronautics commis- sion, and Ray selected Ann Pel- legreno, 37, rural Story City. Others Named Other commissioners appoint- ed are: Alan Thorns, 36, mayor of Dubuque. Stanley Schoelerman, 50, Spencer livestock buyer and chairman of the transportation committee of the National Cat- tlemen's Assn. William F.

Rodino and the Democratic majority had decided last week to question only two of the six witnesses proposed by James St. Clair, President Nixon's lawyer. the Watergate grand jury did not have the authority to name the President as an unindicted co-conspirator, St. Clair said: "Presumably the special prosecutor advised the grand jury to make this finding, and did so with the thought that it would strengthen his hand in litigation such as the present case." Cites Ruling St. Clair said Jaworski was in error in referring to the President as "the head" of the executive branch rather than the embodiment of it. He said the supreme court itself, in a case decided in 1867, wrote that "the President is the executive department." He also cited language in the Constitution which says, "The executive power shall be vested in a President of the United States of'America." St. Clair assailed Jaworski's arguments that Nixon already has weakened his claim of execu- tive privilege by making public edited transcripts of some re- corded White House conversa- tions. "Because the President deter- mines that the public interest permits making public certain information he is not there- by precluded from determining that still other information must, in the public interest, be kept in St. Clair wrote. Jaworski Brief Jaworski asserted that the naming of Nixon as an unindict- ed co-conspirator in the cover- up was based on "substantial not mere suspicion, of Nixon's guilt. During its investigation, the Watergate grand jury amassed "a considerable amount of in- formation about the President's (Continued: Page 3, Col. 6.) Rights Leaders Fear Conspiracy Toloonoio The Rev.

Gov. Robert Ray was sche- duled to speak at the noon lun- cheon at the Downs. Sharing the spotlight with the governor was Vic Hyde, the one-man band who is appearing throughout the fair. Attending the luncheon, in ad- dition to the visiting mayors and their families, were Linn county supervisors, councilmen members. The upcoming special Cedar Rapids city and fair board pions also were named in the breed classes of the open sheep show. Two Cedar Rapids men, War- ren Everhart and David Novak, were named the "Premier Ex- hibitors" in the fruit and vege- table competition. It was the third straight year Everhart has won the top award.

The paper said its continuing investigation had turned up the fact that the deadly 9-mm. bul- lets were found hidden under a bookshelf in the apartment Miss Hearst Khared with Steven Weed. Similar 9-mm. builds were used to murder Oakland School Superintendent Marcus Foster. Two members of the Sym- bionese Liberation Army arc in jail awaiting trial for Hint crime.

According to the spokesman, "Weed told us he didn't know anything about thc bullets or how they got there." Miss Hearst subsequently an- nounced she had joined her SLA abductors and reportedly look part in several crimes, includ- ing bank robbery, kidnaping and auto theft.

Judging activities continued Sunday with the first winners selected in the sheep show and with top winners announced in the horticulture and agriculture competition. A total of fairgoers at- tended Sunday's activities, sending three-day attendance to slightly over the 45.000 originally predicted by fair officials for thc opening weekend. Attendance a year ago on Sunday was when Jimmy Dean appeared at thc fair. A "surprise" which fair of- ficials sprung on the last Fri- day night's auto race fans has turned into a fair-long bonus event. George Moffett of Zanes- villc, Ohio, who is in charge of lining up the grandstand stage shows, suggested Friday that Ma-Ho-Pin, one of the aerialists appearing at the fair, stage an extra perform- ance just when the capacity crowd was leaving the grand- stand. "It went over so well that we decided to do it every Fair Manager Charles Decker said. The night performances are in addition to the regularly scheduled six daily acts. Johnny Luxem worked atop his "wheel of death" following the Bobby Vinton show Sunday night. Fair officials also found that entertainers are really "fair- goers at heart."

Howard Hughes Loses rmer Aide ATLANTA i.M'i Black leaders say the young black man charged with killing Mrs. .Martin Luther King, sr., in a blaze of gunfire during a church service Sunday was part of a conspiracy to assassinate civil rights leaders. Mrs. King, 69, was shot Sun- day morning as she played "The Lord's Prayer" on the organ of the church where her late son, Nobel prize winner Dr Martin Luther King, jr., once preached nonviolence and broth- erhood before his own assassi- nation in 1968. Before the assailant could be subdued by church members, a (Profile of Mrs. King on page 8.) deacon also was killed and an- other person was wounded dur- ing gunfire that sent some church members diving beneath pews. Others ran screaming from the church. "On the List" The Rev. Ralph David Aber- nathy, who succeeded the late Dr. King as president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, said that when he visited the accused gunman in a jail cell the man told him "I was on the list, that there was a conspiracy to get us all to get all the civil rights leaders." Atlanta police said no evi- dence existed to support the theory, but Chief John Inman .ordered a 24-hour guard placec at the home of the Rev. Martin Luther King, sr., who was un- hurt in the shooting. Officer B. F. Peppers, a spokesman for Inman's office, said Sunday ihat "if there's evidence of anyone else being involved, it hasn't been forward- ed to the chief's office at this time." Marcus Wayne Chenault of Dayton, Ohio, a 23-year-old former Ohio State university student who laft the school last fall, was arrested shortly after the shooting and charged with murder. Chenault was ordered held for a grand jury on two counts of murder, one charge of aggra- vated assault and one charge of carrying a pistol without a li- cense. Assistant Police Chief J. L. Mullins said, "Chenault told po- lice he received orders from his God to kill the Rev. Martin Luther King, sr., and the reason he shot Mrs., King was she was nearest to ALBERTA KING ivords to him were, "Oh, there's Abernathy. If you want to live you better get the Rev. off your name." "I told him that he was in jail but he said there was a group that could get Aber- nathy said. Williams, in jail on charges stemming from a march here last week protesting the police shooting of a black youth, also said Chenault recognized him when he was escorted past Wil- iams' cell. Oiurcligoer Family neighbors in Daylon said Chenault, like other members of his family, was a regular churchgoer before he eft home to attend Ohio State. An acquaintance, D a r r e 1 ffalker, said Chenault was usually quiet but his dislike for Christianity seemed to deepen during the last seven or eight months. "He didn't go along with the whole religious bag. He just didn't see why black people would want to get into the Chris- :ian belief and that whole Walker said.
