Ut1 (Sedge mgpidd ©gjfHt CITY FINAL 15 CENTS VOLUME 92 - M MEER 302 CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1974 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES FARMERS WASHINGTON (AP) - U. S. District Judge John Sirica said Thursday that former President Nixon’s testimony in the Watergate eover-up trial may have to be taken on videotape in California. Sirica made the comment after Nixon’s attorney, Herbert Miller, reported to Sirica that it will be at least two or three mortths before Nixon can exert any “substantial mental or physical effort.” A little later, Sirica said he would admit into evidence 26 White House tapes which the j prosecutors say are the heart of their case. Sirica overruled objections from defense lawyers who said insufficient proof had been provided to show that the conversations on the tapes actually took place. Defense lawyers also argued that the prosecution has not shown in court that at least one of the participants in the conversations agreed to the taping. “Indeterminate” Reporting on Nixon’s health as required by Sirica. Miller said it will be “an indeterminate time” before Nixon can travel any significant distance. Nixon, hospitalized in Long Gazette Leased Wires Beach. Calif., was reported G.O.P.

The gift has been confirmed by two non-university officials, one who asked not to be quoted.

Ward said he was contacted by a member of the University hospitals administration “con- there with her three boys,” he said. “I asked her if she was having trouble and she told me lier husband and daughter were dead in the front seat.” At the scene authorities found the father. William Orr, 48, and the* couple’s 13-year-old daughter, Annette, dead, probably since Sunday. The mother, Lillian, 44. and the three boys, William, jr , 12, Joseph, ll, and Gregory, 7, were rushed to a hospital in Alamogordo. Spokesmen said all four were so weak they could hardly speak but were expected to survive. “There is no real way of knowing how long they had gone without food until we can talk to the mother,” said Med- i c a I Examiner Lawrence Moon. “They were undernourished and suffering from malnutrition but not to the point of death.” He said Orr and his daughter died of carbon monoxide poisoning from an open charcoal grill in tile van. William, jr.’s diary, found inside the van, indicated the family had run out of money and not eaten for several days. “The diary had an entry dated Oct. 31 which said they had eaten two watermelons the day before and planned to eat their last one that day,” said Otero County District Attorney Norman Bloom. “The only other reference to food was a hamburger the little girl had eaten.” Bloom, who plans to question the mother when she recovers, said he believed the family was too proud to seek help. “There was an apple orchard just across a fence and a house within 150 yards,” Bloom said. “But I think they refused to beg as a matter of pride. They might have accepted some help if it had been offered, but they weren’t going to go begging for it.” Bloom said the family apparently was traveling across country when it ran out of food and gasoline on the southern New Mexico high- tion to pledge a definite quantity of grain to a planned stockpile to help developing nations avert mass famine. Agriculture Secretary Butz, who heads the American delegation to the conference, refused to make any specific commitments and stressed America's I vie w that each nation must control its own food reserves.
