A request by rep. Delbert Latta a Ohio to make the subpoena More specific led to a recess of the committee until later in the Day when a vote will be taken. There was clearly enough support in the committee to vote for a Broad subpoena to cover everything the committee asked for in its original request on feb. 25 when Latta asked for the recess. The White House offer a made 45 minutes before the committee met a was to deliver some of the tapes in a Day or two. It was supported by most committee republicans but the democrats said it came too late. A a it a a Little late to make a Deal a said rep.

Doar said James St. Clair said he would be willing to give the committee within the next few Days a number of specific conversations Between president Nixon and his chief aides that the committee believes relate to the watergate cover up. However St. Clair s offer did not cover a number of other tapes the committee asked for. As soon As Doar completed his discussion of St. Claire a phone Call a Resolution authorizing the committee to Issue a subpoena for everything covered by the request was put before the committee. It appeared to have solid support of the democratic majority. Doar said that in his talk with St. Clair the White House lawyer did not indicate whether Nixon would comply with a subpoena. The confrontation that has been building since feb. 25 when the request was made became All but certain wednesday after the White House said it would not decide until after april 22 what it would give to the committee.

When is that old Brick House at the Southwest Corner of Pine Street and Gatewood Avenue going to be torn Down its been a terrible looking sight for a Long time. Anon. A. The building inspections department says the House has been condemned for human habitation and the owner has agreed to remove the fallen porch and do the other repairs necessary to comply with the minimum housing standards. Planning your schedule q. I am Only 12 years old and would like for you to print my question in the paper. I am in the 6th Grade and my teacher s name is miss Green and i have a lot of work and am behind on it and Don t know what to do. What should i do Ilc. A. You re asking somebody who a in the same boat and Hasni to figured out what to do either. Lets could Start by writing out what you do with those hours you Arentt asleep or in school a How much time you spend watching to playing worrying Etc. Then make a list of assignments both current and what you re behind on. Set aside a specific time when you used to goof off and apply it to catching up letting nothing interrupt your concentration. Make a commitment to do it. As an example one teacher of our 12 year old had her students sign a contract to do a certain amount of work by a set Date. They were Given a Choice of working for an a a or c Grade depending on which of three outlines of work they committed themselves to Complete satisfactorily on time. The parents signed the contract too so they would be aware of the obligation their child had made. Maybe you and miss Green and your parents could work up a contract and help you plan your study time so you can catch up and keep up. Putting an agreement in writing and signing it seems to make a commitment harder to ignore. And worrying you behind or. No Spray q. Is there anything that can be done to restore the spraying device on Spray cans that have been dropped and wont Spray anymore . A. Admitting to no research on the subject we would still suggest throwing it away. With the contents under pressure and printed cautions not to puncture the can better to lose the Dollar or two invested than risk having the can explode in your face by poking around with the valve. # re action in our answer to a recent question about wills the suggestion was made that wills not be kept in safety Deposit boxes. An attorney says in some states they Are not easy to get into after a person Dies but North Carolina Only requires that the administrator go to the clerk of court with a family member and it can be opened the same Day if necessary. If any burial instructions Are included it would be better not to keep this information in a Bank Box since a funeral May be held before the Box is opened or the will read but otherwise a will is easily accessible in a safety Deposit Box and perhaps safer than having it at Home in a Metal Box which thieves May cart off. Nixon s counsel antagonized committee members of both parties and a wide segment of the House. A i think it was offensive to the House a said rep. See Nixon on 2a Israel faces uncertainty politically Porter gets 30 Day term Washington a Herbert l.

She broke into tears when the judge said 30 Days. Outside the courthouse Porter called the sentence a very very he seemed relieved that the wait was Over. Porter told the judge about a the sorrow this brought to my wife my children and my a a in be Learned a hard lesson a he said. A it s a lesson i will pass Down to my the porters Are the parents of two girls and a boy. Porter who now works in his father in Laws Small construction business at Laguna Niguel calif., had admitted to the Senate watergate committee that he also gave perjured testimony to the grand jury and at the 1973 watergate breaking trial. He said he agreed to the lie a because of the fear of group pressure that would ensue of not being a team Jerusalem apr a Israel faced months of political uncertainty today in the Wake of Premier Golda Meir a resignation and there was no indication of the government that would emerge.
