LOS ANGELES (AP) – A Raman Catholic priest known In one town as an orphanage director and in another as a wealthy electronics executive was sentenced here to two years in prison for not filing United States income tax returns.

Rev. Robert Daniel Nikliborc had pleaded guilty to charges he filed no returns for 1963 and 1965 after the g o v e r n m e n t agreed not to require that he admit to specific amounts. The government had contended he had income of $120,000 for 1963- 64-65.

The 37-year-old priest, president and financial director of Boys Town of the Desert in Banning, Calf., was ordered to undergo a 90-day diagnostic study. Depending on results, U.S. District Judge William Gray said he might reduce the sentence.

The judge also suspended execution of the sentence until Jan. 6, allowing Father Nikliborc to attend dedication ceremonies for a new building at the orphanage.

The U.S. attorney said the priest posed as Robert Drew Rand, president of Robert Rand Enterprises, and lived in a $75,000 home in Palm Springs, about 30 miles east of Banning.

Father Nikliborc denied leading a double life, saying: "I am commonly known as Father Robert, Father Robert Rand or Father Robert Nikliborc—whichever people find easier to pronounce."
