A basic question is how he will make a living. On it will be ex- actly one month since Oct 10 when Agnew resigned and pleaded no contest to a charge of evading in 1967 fed- eral income taxes. He was fin- ed and sentenced to three years probation. Agnew has no no known income. He is threatened with losing his right to practise law and faces possible Inter- nal Revenue Service suits for thousands of dollars in back taxes.

A defence fund set up under Chicago insurance magnate Clement Stone is not expected to raise enough money to pay Agnew's current legal costs and if further ac- tion is brought against those costs will continue to mount. Internal Revenue Service is believed to be auditing Agnew's back tax returns with an eye to collecting what could amount to tens of thousands of dollars in back taxes. An exposition of evidence against Agnew released by the justice department at Agnew's court appearance alleged that between 1966 and 1972 Agnew received payments of from contractor Allen 500 from contractor Lester from contractor Jerome Wolff and half of what was described only as a sub- stantial sum from seven other contractors and one bank.

Apply in PERSONNEL DEPARTMENT SIMPSONS-SEARS LIMITED A spokesman for the Inter- nal Revenue Service would not confirm that IRS is auditing Agnew's tax returns. Agnew is work- ing at winding up the affairs of his vice-pjesidency. The White House provided for him a renovated house here with offices normally reserved for former presidents. Most of Agnew's former staff are being placed in other jobs by the White House per- sonnel office. Ater Agnew's the Senate approved for him a 30-day free mail- and he con- tinues to have Secret Service protection. Agnew's treatment since his resignation was criticized Thursday by Representative John Moss who has asked the General Ac- counting Office for an investigation. Moss said in a letter to the GAO that he understands Ag- new also is getting govern- ment limousines and drivers and the use of military air- craft. There is a law providing transition expenses for former presidents and vice- presidents at the time of an administration change-over. Moss asked for an opinion on whether this applies in Agnew's case saying the ex- penses for the various ser- vices Agnew is getting actually offset or even make good whatever fines he has thus far had assessed upon him by the Two grilled in slaying of nine Calif. Two me.n were taken into custody Thursday for questioning in the murder of nine persons in a luxury home in nearby investigators reported. Police recaptured one man in a downtown Sacramento hotel. The other man sur- rendered after police sur- rounded an apartment building and fired a tear-gas cannister inside. The man who surrendered at the apartment building was identified by police as Willie of Calif. A short time police ar- rested a man identified as Douglas of New York City in a hotel where the two men were registered un- der their own names. Gretzler and Steelman had been sought for questioning in the deaths of nine persons whose bodies were found Wednesday in a home at Vic- tor. 35 miles south of here. They also are wanted by Arizona authorities on a two- count murder warrant. Morros said Steelman lived about nine miles from where the nine bodies were dis- covered All the victims were shot in the head and left in a bedroom and a closet of the new ranch house surrounded by vineyards in the San Joaquin Valley. The seven adults had been bound and gagged. Speed limit cut talks slated OTTAWA Energy Minister Donald Macdonald said Thursday he will talk with provincial premiers about the possibility of reduc- ing highway speed limits to conserve gasoline. There are no definite plans but this is one area that can be explored to reduce energy he told reporters. He was commenting on a series of energy conservation r- outlined for the U.S. Wednesday night by President Nixon. Mr. Macdonald said he will discuss reducing speed limits with Richard HatfieW of New Brunswick first. The two were scheduled to meet later in the day to discuss a variety of top- ics. A maximum speed limit of 50 miles per hour was among measures proposed by Presi- dent Nixon. Mr. Macdonald said the U.S. proposals are similar to meas- ures he mentioned in a Com- mons speech particu- larly for reducing heat in homes and businesses. WON'T CHANGE MIND He said the U.S. plan to re- vert to daylight time will not affect an earlier Canadian decision against such a move. Climatic differences would make the proposal worthwhile in the U.S. but in the colder Canadian climate disadvan- tages would outweigh benefits. Daylight time would reduce power consumption during peak early evening hours but produce an added drain on heating fuel early in the day because the sun would rise an hour later than during stan- dard time. The coldest period of the day was just before sunrise. Arrest spreads fear By IKE FLOhES Bahamas The arrest and possible extra- dition to the United States of financier Robert L. Vesco has stirred fears of a possible eco- nomic downturn for the world's newest free nation. wanted in the U.S. on an indictment charging em- is estimated to have pumped up to million into the Bahamian economy in the last two years. Working through his Bahamas Commonwealth Vesco is reported to have investments in or control over businesses ranging from car dealerships to retail stores and light industry. Some financial and diplomatic officials believe the flexing of muscle by the government of black Prime Minister Lynden 0. which resulted in Vesco's arrest may backfire economically. The question now is what happens to the Vesco holdings. Coyote menace grows EDMONTON Legalized shooting of coyotes from snowmobiles and air- craft was among measures urged by farmers suffering problems from predators. One farmer said his problems have reached the stage that he considers himself to be a member of the feeders He told a workshop organiz- ed by Unifarm that the coyote is a adversary with a lot of two-legged allies He said two livestock breeders in his area had to go out of business because of losses to coyotes Liberals to select new leader EDMONTON The Alberta Liberal Party will hold a leadership convention in Edmonton March 1 and it was announced today. Party president Arthur M Lutz said a committee has been set up to select can- didates for the leader's position Party leader Robert who submitted his resignation will continue as leader until the convention. Mr. Lutz said two people have made approaches regarding their candidacy and a third person has the matter under serious he added that none have for- mally declared their can- didacy. He would not reveal their names. LONG HAUL The New York-West Delaware water supply tunnel is the longest in the running for 85 miles. Another from the Peace River said he lost half of his lambs to coyotes in 12 per cent in 1972 and 13 per cent this year.
