A spokesperson for the Guru Maharaj
Ji, 15-year old "Perfect Master" of the
Universe who has an inordinate fondness
for both motorcycles and Howard John-
son's ice cream, told The Daily yesterday
"there is a possibility" that the guru,
sometimes a target of pie-throwers, will
not make his promised appearance at De-
troit's Cobo Hall tonight. If the guru, who
also failed to materialze for Dick Cavett's
show Wednesday night, should fail to
appear at Cobo, The Daily was told, no
less than three mahatmas and a band
called "The Apostels" will take his place.

WASIIGTIN 1:P-The U.S. attorney's
office in Baltimore issued two subpoenas
yesterday on Marylind state offices in an
a t t e at p t to get Vice President Spiro
Agnew's campaign records dating back as
far as 1962.
The subpoenas were served on the Mary-
land tall of Records and the State Board
of Election Laws. Going back as far as
1962 in the records would include Anew's
terms as Baltimore County executive, gov-
ernor and both vice presidential cam-
A SPOKESMAN for Agnew said it would
be unlikely the Vice President would make
a statement on the issuing of the sub-
poenas. Agnew is spending the weekend in
Palm Springs, Calif., a guest of singer
A check with state officials showed that
records only go, back as far as 1966, the
year Agnew ran successfully for governor.
Deputy State Atty. Gen. Henry Lord
confirmed that two subpoenas were issued
by the U.S- attorney's office, but declined
to say what that documents soughts. Other
officials confirmed that they were for the
Agnew campaign records.
AN ATTORNEY for the Vice President
said yesterday that no decision has yet
been made on what, if any, of Agnew's
personal papers would be turned over to
the office of the U.S. attorney, which is
investigating political corruption.
Judah Best said in an interview thee,
Agnew's lawyers had told U.S. Atty. Gen.
George Beall in Baltimore that they would
be in touch with him sometime next week,
presumably with a decision on Beall'; rc-
quest that Agnew turn over all his finan-
cial and tax records dating back to Jan.
Beall, since last January, has been con-
ducting an investigation of political cor-
ruption in Baltimore County and the state
of Maryland. He informed Agnew la days
ago that he was included in the probe of
ible violation of criminal laws cover-
ing extortion, bribery and conspiracy.
BEST SAID that the lawyers going
through Agnew's personal papers recog-
nize that there is a difference between the
papers of Spiro Agnew, Vice President,
and Spiro Agnew, citizen.
"That is a distinction that can be
drawn," Best said. "But I don't know
that we will draw it. I don't know yet
what we're going to decide about any-
In addition to Best, who is a member of
the Washington law firm of Colson &
Shapiro, Agnew is being represented by
two members of the firm of Paul, Weiss
and Associates-Jay Topkis and Martin
THE VICE PRESIDENT meanwhile was
spending the weekend in Palm Springs,
Calif. A spokesman said he was "just try-
ing to have a complete break for a few
days until they come back next week."
A White House spokesman said he knew
of nothing to confirm reports that Presi-
dent Nixon "hit the ceiling" when he heard
about Agnew's legal problems. Agnew and
Nixon talked for more than an hour on
Tuesday and other than to describe it as
"a long talk," Deputy Press Secretary
Gerald Warren said ,"I would not attempt
to characterize it."
"In the discussions I have had with sen-
ior advisers, there is nothing I could de-
rive from any discussions that would cn-
firm that characterization," Warren said
1aird denies false
reporting of raids
CHICAGO u1)-Melvin Laird said yes-
terday that while he was secretary of
defense he authorized an unusual' pro-
cedure to report secret U.S. bombings in
Cambodia. He said the State Department
requested secrecy of the operations.
He denied, however, that he authorized
falsified reports of the Defense Depart-
ment and said the continued government
silence on clandestine air operations after
the U.S. troop invasion of Cambodia in
April 1970 was a mistake.
Laird, now chief domestic affairs ad-
viser to President Nixon, spoke at a news
conference a day after a top secret memo
was made public which showed Laird's
approval of procedures aimed at hiding the
1969 bombings from the news media.
AT THE TIME, the United States pro-
fessed to observe the neutrality of the
Laird said the procedure he authorized
for reporting the secret bombings "ran
directly to the chairman of the Joit
Chief' of Staff, me and the President of
the United States."
