I n Los Angels Friday, Fischer announced his resignation from the world title because of a dispute over the championship rules. But Fred Cramer, who represents Fischer, said he hoped the matter could be resolved. Cramer, a federation vicepresident, said the resignation was included in a cable Friday to President Max Euwe. 1972 Win Fischer became world champion with a triumphant mixture of superb chess and aggressive WASHINGTON (AP) i d e n t Nixon’s full against impeachment has been presented to judiciary committee — Pres-defense charges a house that is coming under increasing partisan pressures. White House Lawyer James St. Clair, concluding a two-day defense presentation Friday, had to compete for the committee’s attention with a news report indicating all 21 committee Democrats have already decided to vote for impeachment. Chairman Rodino (D-N.J.), quoted by the Los Angeles Times as having made such a statement, vigorously denied it. But some house Republicans seized on the story as an indication the committee is conducting a biased investigation. The furor touched off by the Times story spread to the house floor when Rodino was asked by Speaker Albert (D-Okla.) to quiet Republican criticism that public relations in a series of was sweeping the chamber. games against Russia’s Boris Spassky in 1972. His title defense, under federation rules, is set for next year against a Russian challenger. The federation said the 1975 contest will involve 36 games at most, with IO victories needed to gain the title. If neither player wins IO by the end of the contest, the victor is the player who has won most matches. If the players are tied 9-9. the champion would retain the title “None Whatsoever’’ Interrupting the legislative session, Rodino said: "Unequivocally and categorically this Farm Prices Drop Below Year Earlier WASHINGTON (AP) - Prices of raw farm products drop- Cramer said Fischer had pro-    .    .J"    M ,5 posed there be no limit OB the    torTe    Yrs. time and that number of games draws not count. “That’s the kind of chess Bobby likes to play and that’s the kind the public wants,” Cramer added.

There is no basis in fact for it, none whatsoever.” However, Times Editor William Thomas said: “Two persons heard all of the remarks attributed to Mr. Rodino, and two others were present during significant parts of that. The Times remains certain of the accuracy of its story.” Rodino was defended by committee members of both parties. Rep. McClory (R-Ill.) said “the chairman has tenaciously avoided statements which would inti i c a t c prejudgment of the case.” Rep. Mann (D-S.C.) said Rodino had never asked another Democrat how he would vote and had never offered his own view. “It is absolutely uncharacteristic and untrue,” Mann said of the news story. “Sense of Mood” A few hours later a television newsman who said he was present at the conversation reported by the Times confirmed that Rodino had made such a remark but said it was “a sense of the mood” of the Democrats and not a specific prediction of how they would vote. He also said ft was a casual conversation that he understood was not) for pdblication.

Report Killers Jailed in Egypt WASHINGTON IAP) — Eight Palestinian terrorists convicted of murdering two Ii. S. diplomats in the Sudan have reportedly been imprisoned in Egypt, the state department says. They had been sentenced to life imprisonment for killing Ambassador Cleo Noel, Embassy Counselor George Moore and a Belgian diplomat in March, 1973 The Sudanese government later commuted the terms to seven years and released them this week to the custody of the Palestinian Liberation Organi-j zation, which sent them to Cairo. The state department expressed its displeasure at the freeing of the eight and the subsequent jailing was apparently the Egyptian response.

Big All-Iowa Fair Start: Goal-160,000 Visitors By Steve Belle Charles Decker, All-Iowa fair manager, is keeping his fingers crossed. Sunny skies and 80 degree temperatures greeted fair-goers on opening day Friday and provided Decker with some optimism for the nine fairdays to follow. “The situation us right.” he said. “I'd like to hit 160.000 attendance. The local economy is all right no lay-offs. If people aren't taking extended vacations because of the price of gas, maybe they’ll come out to the fair.” Attendance lip The attendance got off to a good start with F’riday s 15,554 figure topping last year’s opening day mark of 14.830 Total attendance for last year’s entire run was 150,744. The next week is the most crucial time of the whole year for Decker and his All-Iowa fair crew. Rain or too much heat could keep crowds away from the fair and spoil an entire year of planning. Decker 's most-asked question throughout this next week will be, “What’s the forecast?” lf the sunny days forecast for the weekend bears out, Decker can uncross his fingers and begin holding his breath for the weekdays to follow. ♦ * * The first of seven different grandstand shows was on the schedule for Saturday afternoon and again at 8:30 Saturday night. Music and comedy from television's “Hee Haw” will he presented when four of the show’s regulars take to the stage. The Hager twins, George Lindsey or “Goober”, and Susan Raye who is the female half of a Buck Owens duet will perform. Judging Judging of sheep and rabbits began Saturday morning, More than 1,000 blue, red and white ribbons were awarded in judging F'riday. In dairy junior judging competition Friday afternoon, the Toledo 4-H club won their division and the Waukon FFA chapter won the Future Farmers of America division Dave Ohman of the Toledo team was the top-scoring individual. First Injury The first injury has already been recorded at the fair. Tammy Bramow, 16. of 2430 Illinois street SW, fell off her horse while patrolling the fence. She was treated at Mercy hospital for a scraped leg and bumped head and released. Bramow had been taking part in a new plan to cut down gate-crashers. According to Decker, a person riding a horse “gets higher off the ground and can cover more ground ” He said he hired individuals with riding experience and rented Horses to make patrolling the fence more ef ficient than last year’s foot ners patrols. # * * Ann Conner, 58, Mount Vernon, came across a pad of slips headed “Free Drawing” at The Gazette stand in Exhibition hall Friday evening.
