In a letter dated last Friday, and made public Monday, the senators recommended that the President direct the U.S. Civil Service Commission to write a new rule allowing agencies to appoint a “limited number of key officials” to non-career positions not requiring White House clearance. Signing the letter were Senators Magnuson, chairman of the commerce committee; Ervin, chairman of the government operations committee; McGee, chairman of the post office and civil service committee; Moss, chairman of the commerce consumer subcommittee, and Law-ton Chiles of Florida. All are Democrats. Craig Currie, superintendent of the Cedar Rapids Community school district, is one of two applicants for the superintendent of schools post in Bellevue, Wash., The Gazette learned Tuesday. Currie was one of more than IOO persons who applied for the 130.000 a year post in the Seattle suburb. The school district has about 22,000 students. Currie’s salary in the Cedar Rapids school district is about $35,000. Officials said a public announcement of the new superintendent will be made June 20 in Bellevue. Announcement June 20 Currie was out of town Tuesday and could not be reached for comment. Sources in Bellevue said Currie visited there Friday and was interviewed by the Bellevue board of education over the weekend. He came to Cedar Rapids in July, 1968, from Shoreline public schools, suburban Seattle, where he had been assistant superintendent. There Before He was assistant principal and purchasing agent for the Bellevue school system from 1954 to 1957, and had worked in various other school districts in Washington and Oregon. Bellevue’s present superintendent, William H. Morton, is resigning to accept a job in suburban Chicago. Bellevue is a city of about 80.000 persons of high socioeconomic status. The other applicant for the job is Gene Hertske of Phoenix, Ariz. . Motorists were reminded Tuesday that despite a new state law permitting right turns on red lights, they can get a ticket for making such a turn before July I. It is legal now to make a right turn on a red light, after a full stop, where a sign is placed permitting the turn. About half the intersections in the city are so marked. After July I, when the new law takes effect, it will be legal to make such a turn at any intersection unless there is a sign prohibiting it. By that time, the city will have to take down its signs permitting the turns and put up signs prohibiting them at other intersections. So if you want to make a right turn on red, and there isn’t a sign there telling you ifs okay, you can avoid a ticket by waiting until July I or until the light turns green, whichever comes first.Milk Fund—Erasure Theory WASHINGTON (AP) - A panel of tape experts, in a highly technical report released Tuesday, stuck by its earlier conclusions that an 18Mt-minute gap in a White House tape was caused by at least five separate erasures. The report said the tape recorder used by President Nixon’s secretary, Rose Mary Woods, “probably produced the entire buzz section” that replaced a portion of a conversation Nixon had with then chief of staff H. R. Haldeman on June 20, 1972. An expert hired by the White House, Dr. Michael H. L. Hecker of the Stanford Research Institute, agreed with the six-man panel’s conclusion in every respect except one. Hecker said the six-man panel “finally and irrevocably dismissed the possibility that a faulty machine was involved in producing the erasure ... “We believe that the Uher SWK) tape recorder ... was electronically faulty at the time when the erasure was produced.” Hecker said he believed “it is still possible that some internal malfunction of the machine” i was partly responsible for the buzzing sound. (Continued from Page I.) Flowers were among sponsors of legislation to raise the federal support price for milk in 1971, The White House has cited this legislation, sponsored eventually by 121 house members, as a key reason President Nixon overruled the agriculture department and raised milk price supports in March, 1971. The committee is scheduled to begin, within a week or two, a formal inquiry into allegations that Nixon raised prices because of a promise of $2 million in political donations from the dairy cooperatives. Public records show that committee members received a total of $32,150 after April 7, 1972. Records of congressional donations before that date are no longer available for public inspection. Of the total, $24,050 went to nine Democrats and $8,100 went to seven Republicans. Wouldn’t Conflict Most of the members who received dairy-farmer donations said this wouldn’t conflict with their consideration of the allegations against Nixon Hungate summed up what many of his colleagues said: “If Mr. Nixon received and reported a legitimate campaign donation, as I did. he’s in no trouble. If he sought and received a bribe, as I did not, he is in deep trouble.” Memorial Services Stansbrry, Duane N. — 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at Chapel of Memories by the Rev. Ernest W.

(AP) — Mr. and Mrs. Curtis Crews had been hearing about the penny shortage, so they decided to help. They walked into a branch of the Wachovia Bank and Trust Co., and asked for banker Dennis Easter. “They said they had a few pennies out in the car,” Easter said. “But when they opened the trunk I couldn’t believe it. I almost ran and hid.” What Easter saw was 68.435 pennies. “We’ve had some customers bring in $10 or $15 worth of pennies, but $684.35 worth of pennies ...” Crews’ wife said he has been collecting pennies for several months.Both Drivers Hurt In Rural Road Crash Both drivers were injured early Monday in a collision involving cars driven by Julie Wulfckuhle, 18, Coggon, and Jerry Lee Merritt, 25, Coggon, on a gravel road near Coggon.
