Fest hi Du Quoin Sunday They brought some equip ment that resembles nothing found In the home kitchen The bread ingredients are weighed and placed into a machine thats nearly twice as tall as a man where the dough is mechanically knead ed The dough is taken out and placed in a trough to risa lor hour Then a brass piston punches but the dough into twopound loafshaped chunks The chunks of dough fall onto a conveyor belt At the end of the belt the dough is caught and put into pans The pans are placed inio humidity cabinets for about 50 minutes for the dough to rise The dough Is then placed into the large gasolineheated oven on wheels Each oven will hold 36 pans of bread and there are four twopound loaves of bread per pan for a total of 144 loaves In Du Quoin the men made two batches of 200pound mix The recipe included 200 pounds flour 120 pounds wat er 2 pounds yeast 5 pounds salt 6 pounds sugar 8 pounds shortening and 12 pounds of milk solids Bednarko said 100 pounds of flour will

various other trades but not one pro fessional baker Besides bread the men make rolls cookies and otter baked Items The men receive four months training at Fort Lee Va Sgt Bednarko said The aroma of the hot bread at the food festival caused most people to find their way to the popular demonstration The bread was sliced and served with apple butter The line for the free bread was one of the longest At the end of the fesetival the men put half loaves in plastic bags and threw the bread out to die crowd gather ed near the baking equipment After it was over Dave Nolting one of the bakers said We made about 300 loves but it wasnt enough to give everyone part of a loaf Spec 4 Ron Jones said I believe our demonstration shows the army does more than fight people Southern Illinois Food Fest Making cider the old way takes more apples muscle By DeMaris Berry Of The Southern Llinoisan Making cider is easy with todays hydraulic presses but with a press thats easily 75 years old the job is messy and requires some muscle Thats what several mem bers of the Illinois Depart ment of Agriculture IDA found Sunday as they made cider at the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds site of the first Southern Illinois Food Fest An old apple press on loan from Grammers Orchards of Murphysboro did the job Sunday The apples were placed into a hopper at the top of the press while another person turned a wheel that tore the apples into small pieces The ihredded apples fell into a keg which has staves placed about oneeighthinch apart The keg was then placed under the diskshaped press As the operator screwed the press down it crushed the apples Some juice squirted on the operator but most ooz ed between the staves into a trough surrounding the press The apple juice ran through a spigot and was fil tered by a cloth strainer to remove any small apple bits Ray Miller of Olney chief inspector for the IDA at Anna estimated a bushel of apples would make 2 gallons of cider on the old press and about 3 gallons on the new presses He said it takes about 10 minutes to complete the entire operation on the old press and about 3 minutes on mod ern presses Some people make cider with only Jonathan apples but Miller said he prefers a combination of Jonathan and Golden Delicious Jonathan apples are tart and the Golden Delicious are sweet Together they make a good cider he said Liquid apples thats how Nancy Doyle of Springfield an IDA inspector referred to cider Some people prefer cider fresh from the press while others prefer it after it has a kick to Whatever the peference cider is one of the few pro ducts that require only one ingredient Brandt offered post undecided By Henry de Fiebre Of The Southern minoisan Warren W Brandt said to day he has been offered the presidency of Southern Illinois

interfere with the convictions of nine persons and one corporation in nine separate cases involving violations of ob scenity laws in New York Vir ginia California and Flori da In all nine cases Justice Wil liam P Douglas said he would have reversed the convictions because of Ms longstanding view that the Constitution pro hibits any federal or state ban oh obscenity Justices William J Brennan Jr Potter Stewart and Thur good Marshall also dissented from the majority decision de nying the petitions for a full Su preme Court review of the cases Brennan Stewart and Marshall said that seven of the convictions should have been vacated and sent back to the a determi petitioners should be afforded a new trial under local community stand ards lower courts for nation whether In a major obscenity decision last June the Supreme Court turned out its latest attempt to define what kind of material may be prohibited as obscene Winslow was convicted selling and distributing allegedly obscene movie and magazine in violation of a state law without violating the First in a dissent joined by Stewart Amendment guarantee of free and MarshaU Brennan wrote speech and press That decision was that local community standards may govern but that local juries do not have absolute discretion to outlaw movies books and other material they consider objec tionable At that time the court said the movie Carnal Knowl edge could not be banned as obscene in Georgia But in a companion case the court also said last June that individuals can be convicted that the conviction should be overturned because the case has not been measured against the standards set out by the Su preme Court in its 1973 and 1974 obscenity decisions The three justices offered the same argument for reversing the conviction of Goldstein who was charged with selling ob scene items The Supreme Court also let under federal law for sending t commerce In two of the cases today Brennan Stewart and Marshall joined Douglas in

Sporti Weather detaili map I Washington AP A disconsolate President Nix on discussing options for stonewalling Watergate in vestigations was heard by the Watergate coverup jury on tape today as John Dean was on the stand for the fourth day Its a long road isnt it for all of us for all of us Nixon said at one point I mean what the hell are you going to do The discussion occurred on March21 1973 on the after noon of the day when Dean thfi White House counsel had laid out for the President the names of White House people who were vulnerable to indictment They discussed setting up a presidential panel to gather evidence or sending White House people to the grand jury under a grant of immunity so they could not be charged Two of the defendants in the trial John Ehrlichman and H R Haldeman participated in the afternoon discussion Ehr lichman pressed the President to have Dean put on a report that Nixon then could send to the Senate investigation then underway Discussing that idet Nixon says I ask for a written report which is very general un derstand Understand the President repeats and laughs adding I dont want to get all that God damned specific Im thinking now in far more general terms you make it quite general in terms of your inves tigation indicates that this man did not do it this man did do that Ehrlichman suggests that if that idea is adopted to give some weight to that could you attach as an appendix a list of the FBI reports to which you had access so that the President at some later time is in a position to say I re lied Ehrlichman said then that if there were further disclosures Nixon would be in a stronger position to say that he justifiably relied on Deans report A few days later Dean went to the presidential retreat at Camp David Md but failed to write a report Instead he later hired an at torney and began telling the Watergate story to federal pro i ecutori Nixon then appointed Ehr lichman to write the report In a public statement on April 17 Nixon said that in the March 21 conversation new facts were brought to his attention which prompted him to begin a new investigation The tape was introduced and played for the jury after Dean told of an unrecorded conversa tion with Haldeman and Ehr lichman outside of the Presi dents office in which he said there were two alternatives One was to let it go all the way to let unravel Dean told the jury One was to draw wagons around the White House He said Ehrlichman and Haldeman would be included among those who would be pro tected but that former Attv Gen John N Mitchell and Jeb Magruder deputy director of the Nixon reelection committee would not Later in the taped conversa tion which lasted 41 minutes Ehrlichman suggested that Mitchell step out and say that he had done some investigation at the reelection committee which be headed and found that some people had violated the law A 45minute conference be tween lawyers and the judge preceded todays testimony It apparently concerned defense protests that a television ap pearance Sunday by Watergate special prosecutor Leon Ja worski violated Siricas gag order A copy of the New York Times carrying an account of that interview was introduced into the record The early part of the March 21 discussion concerned what Ehr lichman called a blackmail de mand by E Howard Hunt Jr one of the Watergate breakin principals And Ehrlichman warned the President that allowing people to testify before the grand jury would involve awful oppor tunities for indictment and that you end up with neople in and out of the White House indicted for various offenses Jaworski said Sunday that the entire story of Watergate will come out during the trial Through the evidence at the coverup trial youre going to have the story of Watergate Jaworski
