Wednesday, September 4* 1974 Watergate still hangs over jailed John Dean MOPE (ARK.) StAR Page Five Gospel singers to appear here WASHlNGf ON (AP) - John W. Dean ill has begun serving a minimum one-year jail sentence for his part in covering up the Watergate scandal, but his role as a major source of Watergate evidence is not over. the former White House counsel Will testify in the Watergate cover-up trial scheduled to begin Sept. 30. Federal officials said he will remain available for any other investiga* lions cby Special Watergate Prosecutor Leon Jaworski. While Dean continues to provide evidence, he will remain in the custody of U.S. marshals to whom he surrendered Tuesday. Dean was driven to the U.S. courthouse by a deputy marshal who had picked up the 35- year-old disbarred lawyer at a Washington hotel. Before formally surrendering to 'Chief U.S. Marshal .George K. McKinney, Dean walked through a throng of newsmen. He declined comment when asked if former President Nixon should be criminally prosecuted along with six men now charged in the cover-up case. Asked if the felt vindicated by the June 23, 1972, presidential tape made public just before former President Nixon resigned, Dean answered, "I'll let you answer that yourself." Justice Department spokesman Horace Webb said Dean was processed for his one-to- four year sentence like any other prisoner. He Was photographed, fingerprinted and was to be issued a fresh set of prison denims to wear. Dean pleaded guilty last Oct. 19 to a single count of conspiring to obstruct justice in the cover-up and was sentenced Aug. 2. Dean was the star of the Senate Watergate Committee hearings last year where he became the first person to directly accuse Nixon of involvement in the cover-up. He had been fired by Nixon on April 30,1973. When he completes his role as a Watergate witness, Dean is likely to be transferred to a minimum security facility in Lompoc, Calif. Dean's wife. Maureen, lives in their recently purchased house near Beverly Hills, Calif., along with her ailing mother. Curious gathering for EvePs big show TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) The 200 toilets are in place, but the Sky-Cycle has yet to be pointed skyward and the Evel Knievel Museum is no more than an unpainted frame in a field of dust. It is five days before Evel Knievel attempts to hurl himself over the Snake River Canyon, and the curious are gathering. Richard Frederich, 23, and his 21-year-old wife, Jan, drove a day and a half from Mascoutah, 111., and paid $25 each for the privilege of spending nights between now and Sunday in a former cow pasture. ,, "We've got, a $200 bet "at he makes it," Frederich says. "We've been planning to come ever since he said he'd jump the Grand Canyon a couple of years ago." The 'he' on everyone's mind is a 34-year-old motorcycle stuntman from Butte, Mont., who has maneuvered himself into the deal of his lifetime, $6 million-plus to ride a needle- thin rocket over 1,400 feet of space. "Good luck Evel" reads the sign at a gas station. Tape on the side of a trailer from Arizona says, "Break the Snake." For Evel himself, Tuesday — Launch Day minus 6, was a round of publicity gimmicks- pictures at the canvon at the edge of town, cocktail lounge theatrics and, at one point, an explosion of anger. First a fast jet trip from Butte to Twin Falls in the company of tennis and golf hustler Bobby Riggs. Then by helicopter to the 38-acre launch site, where Knievel examines the launch ramp and declares that everyone in the area should wear hard-hats. Then by car to his favorite haunt in Twin Falls, the lounge of the Blue Lakes Inn, where he buys the room a round to resounding applause. The tab for the drinks is $431.90, peanuts compared to the millions Knievel has already received for the Sept. 8 jump. Just to put more icing on the cake, Knievel pauses in the motel to stage a bet with Riggs - $25,000 if the rabbit-faced ga- mester''makes it from 1 Las Vegas to Twin Falls on a tiny motorcycle by 4:30 p.m. EOT, the tentative time of the jump. In the dimly lit lounge, Knievel holds forth at a circular table. The mood is convivial until the object of all attention erupts suddenly at a man with an endorsement scheme. The outburst is angry, but brief, and within moments the party resumes. "This whole week is a party," says one associate. As Evel entertains, engineers at the launch site tinker with the X-2 Sky-Cycle under the late afternoon sun. At the wire fence encircling the blast-off area stand young people with beer and cameras, some of the 50,000 people expected to be on hand by Sunday. "It'll be a madhouse by then, but it'll be fun," declared Bud Brown, a motorcycle dealer from Topeka, Kan. American townhouses on way to Saudi Arabia ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) — An American freighter loaded with 120 prefabricated townhouses and enough plastic, chrome and glass furnishings to fill them is on its way to Tiaf, Saudi Arabia. King Faisal ordered the living quarters and their furnishings for someof. his 3,000-member family. Others will go for nurses quarters at the King Faisal Specialist Hospital. Next month, in the shadow of the king's palace, crews of American workmen will assemble the rows of Kingsberry homes made by the Boise Cascade Corp., bringing middle- class America to the Arabian desert. The townhouses will have wall-to-wall shag carpets, cen- tral air conditioning and built- in intercoms and AM-FM radio systems. The Atlanta office of Boise Cascade and the Atlanta interior decorating firm of Roderick and Co. helped put together the unconventional business deal with Saudi Arabia. Ben Roderick, president of the decorating company, says he soon found that the Arabs have a penchant for America's pop turniture — plastic stackables, blow-up chairs and knock-down tables. Roderick said he had a difficult time trying to find extra- long wardrobe closets to accommodate the long robes which are an essential part of the Arab wardrobe.

Jack Williams today to stay his order extraditing Alvin Tyger to Arkansas to complete a prison term. Murphy was acting on a resolution adopted unanimously Tuesday by the city council asking Arkansas Gov. Dale Bumpers to grant the 26-year- old Tyger clemency. But Murphy said Tyger's real hopes rest with Williams as long as he remains in Arizona. Tyger, who escaped from the Cummins Prison Farm six years ago, has been living here since. He married and has a 2- vear-old daughter. THE NAKED truth, according to actor Burt Reynolds is that he has filed a $3 million law suit against a photographer and publishing firm for unauthorized use of a photo of him in the buff.

Moses Soyer NEW YORK (AP) - Moses Soyer, 74, a traditional painter whose works are exhibited in the country's finest museusms, died Monday while painting the portrait of a dancer in his Chelsea Hotel studio. He was born in Russia and came to America with his family in 1912. He was serving a total of 10 years for robbery and a concurrent three-year term for another escape. Meanwhile Tyger's lawyer, John Aboud Sr., said he had not received the extradition papers Tuesday. He predicted the extradition process could take weeks or months. "My first hope is that Gov. Williams will set fit to withdraw the extradition papers," Aboud said. "And we're also working on Gov. Bumpers to see what can be done." Bumpers said Tuesday that he would not discuss the case until the extradition process is complete. "We have a ironclad policy that we do not erant clemency except on recommendation ui the parole board," Bumpers said. "That, not to stay I will stick with that. It's not written in stone." Since Tyger was ordered last week to be returned to his home state, an estimated 6,000 Arizonanshave signed petitions seeking clemency for Tyger. The petition drive began here and Aboud said one has begun n Holbrook, Ariz., and another nay start in Phoenix. "I'm a very compassiopate man," Bumpers said, "but I don't want to give the impression of leaning either way." Egyptian military reportedly pressing for Russian weapons By FRED S. HOFFMAN AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — Senior Egyptian military officers are pressing their government to patch up differences with the Soviet Union so they can obtain Russian arms again, V.S. intelligence sources report. These sources said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ismail Fahmy has been invited to Moscow in mid-October and a top Egyptian general probably will accompany him. The Russians have withheld deliveries of new equipment and critically important spare parts from Egypt since mid- April, according to U.S. intelligence. The Soviet cut-off came as U.S.-Egyptian relations were warming after nearly two decades of hostility. Egyptian military officers are said by U.S. intelligence sources to have soured on Egyptian President Anwar Sadat's new friendship toward the United States, which so far has brought neither a reduction in U.S. arms support for Israel nor any American weaponry for Egypt. The French government's recent cancellation of its seven- year arms embargo against Israel and neighboring Arab nations has been followed by reports that France will send Egypt new Mirage jet warplanes, paid for by oil-rich Arab countries. But supplies of new French aircraft and weapons would not help the Egyptian military keep its Soviet-supplied arms in operating condition. That depends to a considerable extent on receiving replacement parts from the Soviet Union. The Egyptian army, air force and navy have been equipped almost entirely with Soviet material since the late 1950s. Hearing set for defendant HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) — David Owen Brooks has been granted a Nov. 4 hearing to determine whether he is mentally competent to stand trial for the murder of four of the 27 victims in the Houston mass murder case. At a pretrial session on Tuesday, District Court Judge William M. Hatten granted a request by counsel for the 19- year-old defendantand set the hearing for Nov. 4. Brooks' attorney, Ted Musick, said his client is now insane. Dist. Atty. Carol Vance said the state will contend — based on the opinion of eight psychiatrists — that Brooks is able to help in his defense. If a jury finds Brooks insane he would be placed in a mental hospital until he was able to stand trial. Musick said if the jury finds his client sane, he will move for a change of venue and plead his client was temporarily insane at the tune of the slayings. Police said all 27 of the teenaged males were the victims of a homosexual torture a/id murder ring headed by Dean A. Corll, 33, of suburban Pasadena. Corll was shot by Elmer Wayne Henley, 19, another defendant in the case, on Aug. 8, 1973. The shooting was ruled self-defense. Henley was found guilty in six of the deaths by a jury last July in San Antonio, where the case was moved on a change of venue. He was sentenced to 595 years in prison. Police charge that Brooks and Henley lured their friends and neighbors to Corll's home, where they were homosexually raped, tortured and killed. After Corll's slaying, Brooks and Henley led officers to 27 bodies found buried in and around the Houston area. Lucia Wilcox NEW YORK (AP) - Lucia Wilcox, 72, an artist who founded the artists' colony in Ama- gasett on Long Island that attracted many famous artists, including Jackson Pollack and Max Ernst, died Monday of cancer. She continued to paint despite blindness that afflicted her for the last two years. Chances of avoiding strike hinge on two critical issues WASHINGTON (AP) - The chances of avoiding a crippling nationwide coal strike appear to depend on two critical issues: increased safety for the miners and greater production for the owners. Despite optimism expressed at the start of negotiations for avoiding a strike, initial contract proposals put forth Tuesday indicate the miners and owners are far apart on these issues. Union sources said they expect less difficulty in winning big wage increases and other fringe benefits than in obtaining non-money items now that the companies are selling coal at record prices. The national contract covering 120,000 miners who produce 75 per cent of the nation's coal expires Nov. 12, and government officials are concerned that a long strike would seriously aggravate the nation's economic and energy problems. United Mine Workers President Arnold Miller struck'what appeared to be an uncompromising position on mine safety, declaring that "the lives and Selfety of American coal miners are not negotiable items." But Walter C. Wallace, chief negotiator for the Bituminous Coal Operators Association, said if tha union expects substantial wage and benefit hikes it will be essential to increase production and productivity. The industry cited government figures showing that output per man-day fell from nearly 20 tons in 1968 to less than 17 last year. Miller noted the industry's concern over lost productivity and attributed the loss to wild:at strikes and absenteeism. He saiu me union would discuss "these serious problems candidly" and suggest solutions. However, the union chief's safety demands would reduce productivity by raising payrolls without increasing output directly. These demands were for fulltime helpers on "all dangerous mine machinery," education and safety programs for new miners and company-paid fulltime safety committeetnen at every mine. In addition to safety issues and substantially higher wages, the union called for a cost-of- llving escalator clause, establishment of sick pay provisions, improved pensions, four weeks vacation instead of two, and a new grievance procedure.
