"Evidence Of Fraud," Paper Says LOS ANGELES (UPI) - The congressional committee investigating President Nixon’s taxes is expected to announce Wednesday that he owes more than $300,000 and there is “evidence of civil fraud” in his returns, the Los Angeles Times said Saturday. The newspaper, in a report from its Washington bureau, said the Internal Revenue Service is expected to assess Nixon for the back taxes as soon as the report is released, and his lawyers are already preparing to defend him against the IRS in the U.S. tax court. “The joint committee on Internal revenue taxation is expected to issue a report next Wednesday finding that Prcs-i d e n t Nixon owes between $300,000 and $400,000 in back taxes,” the Times said. The report quoted “sources close to the committee.” No Recommendation The report “is expected to include evidence of civil fraud in connection with the preparation of the President's returns,” the newspaper said Nixon did not prepare the returns himself but entrusted the preparation to his southern California tax attorneys. The committee will make no recommendation as to whether the President should be prosecuted for civil fraud, on grounds that such a decision is outside its jurisdiction, the Times said.

The Republican party is on the march ” PASADENA, Calif (AP) -Mariner IO sped away from Mercury Saturday after revealing the tiny planet to be a desolate, moonlike world of craters surrounded by a thin a t rn o s p h e r e of poisonous gases Man s first close-up views of the mysterious planet were relayed 92 million miles to earth Friday in a series of television pictures One scientist said they were “spectacular beyond my wildest expectations.” Hundreds of pictures streamed across television monitors at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, leaving scientists as puzzled as they were excited The flow was halt«*d only briefly as Mariner skimmed past the planet s dark side just 450 miles above the surface Friday. Television team leader Dr, Bruce Murray said Mercury seems to be like the moon — pitted by thousands of craters, ancient marks of meteorites exploding against the surface Like the moon, Mercury is dry and rugged, so inhospitable t hat chances of it supporting life seem virtually nil. It is the solar system’s closest planet to the sun and is scorched mercilessly But Mercury’s craters — some as large as 70 miles across, others mere tiny pockmarks — were unrelieved by any visible mountains, valleys or plains similar to the vast dry oceans of the moon Geologists were at a loss to give immediate explanations for several features. There was a long depression that looked like a narrow ditch etched into the land, occasional surface cracks, and a 100-mile-long raised ridge slicing across one crater. They were also wondering about a magnetic field detected near Mercury. It is stronger than that observed near the moon. which is about I percent of the earth s field Mariner’s sensitive measuring instruments detected an atmosphere greater than that of the moon, but one which contradicted a recent Soviet theory Russian scientists had reported observing from earth a faint hydrogen atmosphere. But Dr. M. B McElroy said Mariner found the atmosphere to be made up largely of the rare gases neon, argon and helium “This is the first planet we’ve seen not surrounded by a hydrogen-he Ii urn atmosphere.” said McElroy. Exactly where the gases are coming from was not immediately determined But McElroy said surface rocks undergoing radioactive decay were pouring some of the gas into the atmosphere. The helium, he added, appears to extend out about 500 miles into space. Temperatures varied tremendously on Mercury — from about 950 degrees Fahrenheit to 300 below zero. The spacecraft will continue to photograph Mercury as it streaks away at 24,000 miles per hour The photo sessions will last until April ll Then Mariner will sail into orbit around the sun committee Delaware Reviva Of Death Penalty DOVER.
