BROSH CHAPEL the transition period. A justice department memo randum prepared at Sampson': request indicates that Nixon i: not eligible for full benefit! under both, laws at the same time. In that memo, Acting Assis tant Attorney General Marj Lawton said: "II is our conclu sion that former Presiden Nixon immediately qualifies fo a pension (under the Forme: Presidents Act) and for tin staff, office and other benefit: (of Ihe Presidential Transition Act) for six months from (hi dale of his resignation, at whicl lime he would qualify for the of fice and staff provided for by he Former Presidents Act." Period Extended The Nixon proposal, however would extend the transition 3eriod from six months to more :han 10 months, ending on June 30, 1975, Ihe end of the curren 'iscal year. At the same time Nixon would be receiving in pension, staff sa aries and other benefits under the Former Presidents Act. A GSA spokesman cited the Tohnson transition as a prcce denl, noting that he wan the only President lo receive the icnefils of both acts and point- ing out that he extended his t r a n s i I i o n period from sh months to 17 months. But GSA documents show he received only his pension ant Transition Act funds thai 17- month period and didn't begin gelling staff and office money under the Former Presidents Act until the transition ended. Johnson Average Calculations based on the GSA figures show that Johnson re- ceived an average of about a month during the tran- sition period and about a month after that. This compares with a monlh Nixon would receive during his first 10 months and a month after thai if his level of spend- ing under the Former Pres- idents Act remained stable.

Passage of the measure per- mits the school district lo use funds from the 2.5 mill levy for new purposes now allowed by Iowa law. These include pur- chase, construction or repair of schoolhouses and other build- ings, purchase of equipment and other uses. The measure authorizes the dislricl (o levy the tax for 10 years. No Tax Hike It does not mean an increase in taxes since the 2.5 mills were being levied already for pur- poses allowed by Iowa law unti it was changed by the last ses- sion of the legislature.

Others were city hall, Coving- Ion, Palo, and Robins. Inflation Reaction Supt. Craig Currie said he believed the close vole on the 1.5 mill may have indicated a lo inflation. "I think the vote reflects the mood of our times, including the ligh rate of inflation. Some ,'Otcrs may have misunderstood .he 2.5 mill and thought it was a lew he said. Currie also pointed out that he director district question jassed by about the same mar- gin as the vote last fall asking hat some type of director dis- ricts be sel up. The measure jassed by about 200 voles last year. "I think it's fair to say dircc- or districts are still a con- rovcrsial issue in the minds of nany he said. Second Try?

Depression? Buchen also replied "not that I know of" lo a reporter's ques- tion about whether Ford was influenced by reports that Nixon had been depressed since he had left the White House. In addition lo the Watergate cover-up, the memo by assistant prosecutor Henry Ruth listed a series of areas which had a pos- sible "direct connection" to Nixon. They included his tax deduc- t i o n s for vice-presidential papers; White House aide Charles Culson's statement that he obstructed justice on Nixon's orders; national security wire- taps; the attempted tax auditing of administration the promise of campaign con- tributions from dairy organiza- tions and its relationship to an increase in milk price supports; the challenge to the Washington Post's ownership of two lelevi- sion stations; and Charles "Bebe" Rebozo's use of cam- paign contributions for Nixon's benefit. Nation "Saturated" Nixon's lawyer, Herbert Mill- er, issued his own memoran- dum, which contended that the nation had been "saturated" by Watergate and events of the past two years have created such an overwhelming likeli- hood of prejudice that the ab- sence ot due process would be G.

Burial: pleted by the scheduled Sept. 30 start of the trial of six former aides and associates of Nixon on charges stemming from the Wa- tergate cover-up. Buchen rejected a reporter's suggestion that disclosure of the pardon study intruded on the judicial process and threatened :he defendants' right to a fair trial. "I don't think he said, because it is well known that a President can pardon anyone at any time. Consideration of pardons for the cover-up defendants is "not a unique he said. Judge John Sirica Wednesday refused a request from defen- dant H. R. Haldeman to delay further the cover-up trial. At the request of the federal appeals court, Sirica already had post- poned the start of the trial three weeks. A lawyer for former Attorney General Mitchell, Plato Ca- cheris, said such wide-scale par- dons are "the only fair and eq- uitable thing to do in light of the pardon already given" lo Nixon. But former While House aide John Ehrlichman, a defendant in Ihe cover-up trial, would not say flatly whether he would ac- cept or reject a pardon. "The problem when you know is that you're in- I Urbana Memorial cemetery. Friends may call at Murdoch chapel in Center Point after 7 p.m. Wednesday. The casket will not be opened at any time. Ehrlichman said, J a warden "precludes the possibili- ty that your innocence will be established finally." Prosecutors voiced dismay at the White House disclosure, as did dozens of members of congress. "Pardoning all those connect- ed with Watergate would com- plete the cover-up of the cover- objected Senate Democrat- ic Whip Robert Byrd of West Virginia. Senator Ervin (D-N.C.) who headed the senate committee in- vestigation of the Watergate scandal, said: "I can't imagine that he could possibly make such a mockery of the principle of equal justice under law by pardoning these men who un- dertook to steal from the American people their right lo a free election House Speaker Carl Albert of Oklahoma said such pardons would "be viewed as an abuse of presidential power." "Where would lie asked Albert. "Would it mean that all politicans in trouble ivould be Rapped by Mczvinsky Rep. Mezvinsky (D-Iowa) a member of the house judiciary committee that conducted the mpeachment inquiry, said, "In- stead of closing the book on Wa- ergale, really what it does is condemn this nation to a history of speculation thai is far more devisive than a search for Ihe .ruth." Senator Mondale (D-Minn.) said he will introduce a consti- utional amendment allowing congress lo overturn future pre- sidential pardons by a two- hirds vote of both houses. He also called for serious consider- ition in congress of re-opening he impeachment proceedings igainsl Nixon. ight Up Someone's flay with Flowers PIERSON'S 1800 Ellis Blvd. NW FLOWERPI4ONE 366-1826 FtOVEl SHOP Flowers Always Show You Care from 4 Seasons 3028 Ml.
