Judge rules
public may
hear Nixon 's
WASHINGTON (AP) - A federal
judge ruled yesterday the public may
hear duplicates of Richard Nixon's
White House tapes at a dozen listening
centers around the country.
U.S. District Judge Aubrey Robinson,
Jr., approved the government's plan to
make the tapes available to the public
once archivists have screened out those
considered private.
BUT THAT review is expected to take
four years and a government
spokesman said he expects no
piecemeal release of the tapes.
Nixon attorney Stan Mortenson said
he will ask Robinson to reconsider his
one-page order, which gave no ex-
planation for the ruling. Nixon opposed
making the tapes available, contending
"the dissemination of one's voice, one's
mannerisms" violated his rights to
Robinson's order also permits ar-
chivists to review dictated recordings
that Nixon called his personal diary.
Nixon said these recordings, made
from November 1971 through April 1973
contained his "innermost thoughts and
feelings" and should be returned to
AFTER NIXON'S resignation in 1974,
Congress passed a law directing the
General Services Administration
(GSA) to take custody of the 42 million
pages of documents and 5,000 hours of
tapes from Nixon's presidency.
The agency was instructed to return
personal materials to Nixon and to set
rules of public access for the rest.
In the case before Robinson, Nixon
challenged some of the regulations
issued under the 1974 law - those set-
ting up 12 listening centers and ar-
chivists' access to the dictated recor-
the way archivists process Nixon's
tapes and papers, were agreed to
earlier this year by lawyers for Nixon
and the government.
Mortenson said yesterday that he will
challenge Robinson's ruling on grounds
that the government breached one
aspect of the earlier agreement. He
said the government filed papers that
contended Congress gave careful con-
sideration to the regulations - an issue
that both sides agreed not to raise.
Mortenson and lawyers for the
government had agreed that the
method used by Congress to consider
the regulations was illegal. Mortenson
said the illegality stemmed from use of
the so-called "one house veto," which
put veto power over the GSA rules into.,
the hands of either house of Congress.

women have been shot or stabbed near
Tulane University in the last year, and
the neighborhood is "paranoid" over
rumors that the attacks may be part of
gang initiation rites, police said yester-
"We have flooded the area with'
plainclothesmen," said Detective Sgt.
Louis Dabdoub. "We have been hot on
this for six or seven weeks. We still
have nothing to either prove or disprove
the rumors."
FIVE YOUNG white women have
been shot and two stabbed. All the male
attackers were black, police said.
None of the victims -died, but some

were seriously wounded. One young
woman may be paralyzed. Most attacks
took place on the sidewalk.
Lisa Ducote, 17, the latest victim, was
shot in the arm and chest Saturday
night while sitting on the porch at a
house where she was attending a party.
She went home from the hospital
POLICE Superintendent James Par-
sons said Leroy Cook, 18, free on bond
in connection with an earlier attack,
was rearrested and booked on a charge
of attempted murder in the shooting of
Cook was first arrested last Feb. 25
and booked as an accessory in the

shooting of Karen Ahimovic, 19, of
Cranford, N.J. She was shot in the back
on Feb. 22 while visiting here.
The detectives appeared at a news
conference, along with Parsons. The
chief limited his comment to em-
phasizing that police were not saying
that a street gang exists, only that there
are rumors of such a gang, which
requires new members to attack a
"Robbery was not a motive. Sexual
assault was not a motive. We haven't
got a motive," said Detective Howard
Robertson. "If we knew the motive,
maybe we could solve the crimes."
