Jaworski asks ruling

Coninued t Page i1
JAWORSKI said it is of "im-
perative public importance"
that the issues be resolved
quickly to permit the Water-
gate cover-up trial to begin as
scheduled on Sept. 9.
A spokesman said the petition
was received at the Supreme
Court at 5 p.m. EDT.
In another case, the White
House moved yesterday to
quash a subpoena for the Ells-
berg break-in trial, and Judge
Gesell warned that Nixon was
pushing the case toward dismis-
sal.
Around A2
Ann Arbor celebrates its 150th
birthday today, and everyone
will be taking to the streets.
For a schedule of sesquicen-
tennial events, see page 8. Also,
if you want to catch some 1950's
music played by a live band,
the Ann Arbor Jaycees are spon-
soring a free dance on Main
St. between Liberty and Wash-
ington from 7 to 10 p.m.
Cricket, one of the most popu-
lar sports in the world, is not
very well known in the U.S., but
the University has had a cricket
club for the past few years. If
you'd like to learn to play, show
up at the club's first practice
game today at 4:30 p.m. at
Ferry Field, or call the club
secretary, Prem Gupta, at 763-
3078 or 665-5232.
The Human Rights Party
holds its state convention, which
is open to any interested par-
ticipants, in E. Lansing this
weekend in the Unitarian Church
at 855 Grove St., beginning at
10 a.m. today. Rides will leave
the Ann Arbor HRP office (516
E. William) at 8:45 a.m. today
and 11:45 a.m. tomorrow. Local
HRP will be recommending
Lisa North, a University under-
grad, for state senate candidate
in the 18th District.

"T1IE ACTION you have tak-
en moves this case in the di-
rection of dismissal," Gesell
told White IIouse lawyer James
St. Clair. -
"If it is the position of the
President that there will be
no disclosure, then I have a
problem and as I read the
cases I have a duty to per-
form." the judge said.
"The failure to produce these
documents may well lead to
dismissal of this .case," Gesell
said.
The trial is scheduled to be-
gin June 17.
Brushing aside claims of ex-
ecutive privilege over the docu-
ments, Gesell said the govern-
ment has an obligation to pro-
duce all the relevant evidence
it has or drop the case. And he
said the courts, not the Presi-
dent, should decide what is rel-
evant.
The White House also filed
formal notice of appeal Friday
against another subpoena issued
on behalf of Watergate Jawor-
ski and several defendants in
the Watergate cover-up trial,
scheduled to start Sept. 9.
SIRICA HAD given St. Clair
until 4 p.m. today to sign an
appeal or turn over the mater-
ials Jaworski requested by May
31.
Jaworski is seeking tapes and
documents covering 64 presi-
dential conversations. Nixon
has resisted on grounds of exec-
utive privilege and a claim
that the prosecutor has 'not
proved the materials are actual-
ly necessary for the trial.
In another Watergate - relat-
ed development yesterday, Rep.
John Conyers (D-Mich.) said
the Internal Revenue Service
(IRS) has refused to give the
House Judiciary Committee an
audit of President Nixon's in-
come taxes-.
The committee is examining
Nixon's tax payments for 1969-
72 as part of its impeachment
inquiry. The IRS found that Nix-
on was in debt for that period.

Some like it hot
Warm weather brings out local cabbie Eileen O'Hara who lies comfortably in the sun while
waiting for a fare outside the Union yesterday.
Police bungle false raid

(Contiinued from Page 3)
With the lights still off, Scho-
enberger ventured out onto the
porch and asked the police to
"shine y o u r light on your
badge." There was no response,
and she ran back tnto the house
in fear.
But a minute later she looked
through the window and saw the
police insignia on a squad car.
That convinced her, and she
and Jones walked out on the
porch in their nightgowns.
THEY WERE- met by police.
The women quickly convinced
the police they were not SLA
members and, after searching

the house, the police left.
"We were terrified," Schoen-
berger told reporters later.
Acting on a tip to the FBI
that Patricia Hearst was in the
house, 50 to 60 police had sur-
rounded the house, carrying
shotguns and tear gas rifles.
"It was just one of a number
of operations that are going on
alt the time," an FBI spokes-

man said later, referring to the
week-long search for Hearst and
the Harrises. They are charged
with 18 felony counts stemming
from a series of incidents last
week that were capped by a
shootout and fire in which six
SLA members died.
SCHOENBERGER and Jones
told newsmen later they under-
stood the need for the raid and
felt it was partly for their pro-
tection. The police had treated
them very courteously, they
said.
Schoenberger said she also
understood why the p o l i c e
hadn't turned their lights on
their badges. "It would have
made them -an excellent target
if we had been SLA," she said.
Later yesterday, the Los An-
geles county coroner said he
believes Donald "Cinque" De-
Freeze and five other SLA
members w e r e "determined
fanatics" who elected to die in
their burning hideout rather
than surrender to police.
