Early today;the gunmen .de* fnaftded that police and troops pull back from the twd'stofy stucco building within two hours, but the government did not comply and the deadline passed Without any evidence of hostile action by the terrorists. "Miss Hutchison has not been maltreated, is in good spirits and is being treated as Well as she can under the conditions," said U.S. Ambassador Robert A. Hurwitch. "But she is not comfortable," Miss Hutchison, director of the U.S. information Service in the Dominican Republic, Venezuelan Consul-General JesUs de Gregorio and the others were seized Friday and threatened with death unless the terrorists got $1 million *and safe conduct to Cuba or Mexico for themselves and 37 Dominican prisoners. The government rejected all the demands except transportation out of the country for the terrorists. On Saturday, the government cut off the consulate's electricity, which in turn shut down the air conditioning and water pumps. The temperature inside the building has ranged between 90-95 degrees, and the gunmen have refused ; t to open the windows, apparently afraid the hostages would try to escape. On Saturday, one hostage leaped to freedom from a second-floor window* Hurwitch, who needed a shave and spent a sleepless night, told newsmen after conferring with police that mattresses would be taken into the building soon. "We have been reviewing some of the measures to make them more comfortable in there and this is one of the things we came up with," he said. Asked about progress in negotiations to free the captives, he said: "I wish I could say something about this to you but my inability to is only over the concern for Miss Hutchison and the others." He said the Dominican government has "primary responsibility" in any negotiations, and that he was "hopeful for a peaceful solution." Archbishop Hugo PolaficOj the dnty pefsofl to enter the consulate Sunday, said the guerrillas asked that a flego* tiatiflg commission be set up, "but the Dominican govern* fflent has not agreed to act upon that request." The six hostages and their captors got their first food and drink in 24 hours Sunday when the archbishop took sandwiches and soft drinks into the consulate. Police sources said the government had agreed to the delivery of food and other necessities twice a day. Archbishop visits Nixon I.ONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) Former President Richard M. Nixon was described as "a man remarkably alive and in excellent spirits" by the archbishop of the Los Angeles Roman Catholic diocese who visited him at the hospital during the weekend. "He looked better than I've seen him in two years," said Archbishop Timothy Cardinal Manning. "He showed no signs of strain or illness. He said he was in no pain. I was amazed. He was in excellent spirits, very happy." Manning said he has known Nixon since 1946, "when he was a young congressman and I was a young bishop." No official word on the former president's condition was issued during the weekend. After seeing Manning, Nixon was visited for more than two hours by his wife, Pat, and youngest daughter, Tricia Nixon Cox, who arrived accompanied by Secret Service agents. Nixon said, "We had a pleasant visit with him. He is feeling much better." Nixon, 61, was being treated for phlebitis in his left leg and a blood clot in his right lung. He entered the hospital last Monday and has been receiving anticoagulant drugs to prevent further clots from forming and to solidify the clot in his leg so no parts of it break off and travel through his system.

Reagan says the speeches and lours are not intended to build support for a possible presidential candidacy. Mrs. Petty said she is pleased that Reagan decided to campaign for her.
