Nixon might get be

WASHINGTON (P) - Richard
Nixon's hundreds of elephants,
his collection of gavels and
political cartoons are in boxes,
ready to be shipped to San Cle-
mente, Calif., if a federal judge
gives his okay.
Nixon's lawyers went into fed-
eral court yesterday to get that
permission and were promised
a ruling by the end of the
THE 250 to 300 boxes contain
no White House tapes or Water-
gate memoranda - not even
the eyeglasses Nixon got while
in office, or pictures of daugh-
ter Tricia's White House wed-
ding, or a globe of the moon.

Congress recently passed a!
law prohibiting the transfer of
any materials relating to Nix-
on's term as president, and a
court order has put a ban on
shipping anything.
But Nixon's lawyers say the
elephants, gavel collections and
some other items were brought
into the White House by Nixon
when he took office in 1969 and
therefore aren't affected. They
also ask things that accumu-
lated after the President re-
signed Aug. 9.
R. STAN Mortenson, repre-
senting the former President at
yesterday's hearing, said scru-
pulous efforts were made to

"Nothing relating to the for-
mer president's time in office
will be shipped to California,"
Mortenson told U. S. District
Judge Charles Richey.
The Justice Department, rep-
resenting the White House, con-
curred and told the judge au-
thority to ship the material ex-
pires Feb. 9 - the end of the
six-months transition period. A
Justice Department lawyer'
suggested Feb. 3 as the ship-
ping date.
THE SPECIAL prosecutor's
office said it was satisfied from
inventories of the material that
it could be sent. But attorneys
for others who have asked ac-
cess to Nixon presidential docu-
ments objected.
In a report to the judge, the
White House said archivists ex-
amined all of the Nixon papers

ter of this importance can be

Richey ordered inventories of

all parties in the suit over
Nixon papers by Wednesday
evening and ordered lawyers to
refrain from telling even their;
clients what the boxes contain.

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia
(A') - Rebel gunners on bothl
sides of the Mekong River pour-
ed heavy fire yesterday on ar
16-ship convoy trying a new
run of the perilous gantlet to
isolated Phnom Penh, but there
was no immediate reports of
casualties, military sources
The convoy, the biggest to at-
tempt the run since insurgent
forces blocked the Mekong Riv-
er lifeline a month ago, con-
sists of five freighters, four fuel
tankers and .seven barges load-
ed with rice, ammunition and
other vital supplies for hard-
pressed Phnom Penh, the sour-
ces said.
voys reached Phnom Penh last
week, but the ships suffered
considerable damage from in-
surgent fire during their haz-
ardous 60-mile trips upriver
from South Vietnam.
One skipper said he didn't
think he'd ever make the trip
again and another said it was
the most difficult of his 10
runs. Captains on the run make
$50 a month and crewmen $120.
They are paid by Sea-Pac, an
American subsidiary of Alaska
Barge and Transport.

-Rebel gunners fired five
rockets into Phnom Penh's air-

police said.
Field reports said three gov-
ernment navy boats ferried
about 80 wounded refugees from
the besieged ferry town and
naval base of Neak Luong, 32
miles southeast of Phnom
Neak Luong is an important
base for guarding the Mekong
shipping channel for resupply
convoys to Phnom Penh.
-The Saigon command said
45 government troops and 121
North Vietnamese and Viet
Cong soldiers were killed in
small clashes and rocket and
mortar attacks in the 24 hours
ending at dawn.
-Twelve opposition deputies
issued an open letter to the U.
S. Congress, calling for an end
to South Vietnamese President
Nguyen Van Thieu.
The letter said Thieu does
not represent the majority of
the 20 million South Vietnamese
and that "increased aid to
Thieu only helps him to flatten
the South Vietnamese people.
To increase aid is to increase
prisons, more opportunity for
Thieu to increase coercion."
-Hanoi said the United
States must halt reconnais-
sance flights over Vietnam, pro-
vide it with reconstruction aid
and end "military involvement
and intervention" in South Viet-
nam to obtain a peaceful set-
tlement of the war.

Abourezk said it 'seemed to
him a thorough investigation
was warranted, but Levi told
him that, considering the num-
ber of companies involved,
there is at least in that sense
"a great deal of competition in
the oil industry."
Levi, president of the Univer-
sity of Chicago and former
dean of its law school, was a
top aide in the Justice Depart-
ment's Antitrust Division dur-
ing WWII and later served as
counsel of a House antimonopo-
ly subcommittee.

there is a possibility of a clos-

All indications were that the
committee would recommend
Senate confirmation.
LEVI SAID no industry was
exempt from antitrust investi-
gations, but he testified: "I

He testified that policy in an
area of this kind should be
made by the legislative process
rather than by the courts. "We
shouldn't say that every time
we get a difficult problem, the
Supreme Court should handle

Levi also testified that he
does not believe newsmen have

privilege against disclosing con-
fidential sources if called for
questioning by a grand jury.

A Series of Informal Talks/Discussions on


as a Desirable Pattern of Socio-economic Evolution
What patterns of settlement, resource-use and technology would best
promote ecological adaptation by society? Can an organization of com-
petent, self-provisioning communities and regionol groupings sustain them-
selves primarily by skilled and conservative management of biotic pro-
cesses and flow-energies, rather than by overdraft on fossil fuels and
high-energy technics?
Mr. Van Dresser, together with Florence Van Dresser at the first three
sessions, will explore the answers to these questions.
