A White House spokesman said Ford decided on the rare personal appearance after concluding "the direct approach was the best approach." He said Ford "is prepared to respond to each question and point of information in the resolutions" but said he did not know if the President would accept other questions or submit to cross examination. For the limited purpose of the hearing, he said, Ford obviously was waiving executive privilege. Ford said he would answer questions in two "resolutions of inquiry" before the House subcommittee, one introduced by Rep. Bella S. Abzug, D-N.Y., posing 10 questions and one from Rep.

Santo Domingo deadlock continues By NAT CARNES Associated Press Writer SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — United States officials think the terrorists holding seven hostages in the Venezuelan consulate may have abandoned their demand for $1 million ransom. With the siege going into the fifth day, State Department spokesman John King said in Washington that the six leftist guerrillas' demands "seem to have boiled down to safe conduct" out of the country for themselves and 37 terrorists in Dominican prisons. He said that the earlier money demand had not been repeated.' The Dominican government rejected all the demands, offering only to fly the six terrorists out of the country. The U.S. government has consistently refused to pay ransom or meet other demands from such terrorists. "The question now is on whose side is time?" one Dominican official said. He confirmed that the guerrillas have set three deadlines, but each has passed without the threat to start killing the hostages being carried out. The captives include Barbara Hutchison, director of the U.S. Information Service in the Dominican Republic; Venezuelan Consul Jesus de Gregorio, and others. Bishop Hugo Polanco Brito of the Roman Catholic diocese of Santo Domingo reported after a visit to the consulate Monday that he learned of the presence of a seventh hostage, a messenger named Pegero who is 21 or 22. ...... The bishop is .now. making daily deliveries of food and medicine to the consulate and bringing out messages from those inside, He delivered a note Monday from Miss Hutchison to U.S. Ambassador Robert Hurwitch, who reported, "It is obvious that she is still in good spirits and as courageous as she always has been." President Joaquin Balaguer met with Hurwitch, the Ve- nezuelan charge d'affaires and the Spanish ambassador on Monday to discuss the situation. No details were given. The leader of the terrorists, Rafael Mendez Vargas, sent a note out referring to "a wounded man" inside the consulate, and asking for medicine. One report said one of the guerrillas accidentally shot himself in the foot Friday. WASHINGTON (AP)-Once mighty officials of the Nixon administration were back in the nation's capital today for trial on charges they tried to block investigation of the June 1972 Watergate break-in. U.S. District Judge John J. Sirica, who presided over the original Watergate trial nearly two years ago, summoned 170 prospective jurors for the start of a selection process that could last one week or more. Twelve jurors and six alternates will be chosen. Sirica has said he hopes to complete the trial before Christmas. The five defendants include former Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell and ex-White House aides H.R. Haldeman and John D. Ehrlichman. The defense and prosecution have subpoenaed former President Nixon as a witness. Neither Nixon nor his lawyer, Herbert J. Miller, has made any public response tp : the subpoenas. Monday, however, Dr. John C. Lungren, the ailing former President's physician, said he believes it would be "at least a month, maybe three months," before Nixon could travel from California to Washington. Nixon entered Memorial Hospital Center of Long Beach, Calif., a week ago suffering from a recurrence of the phlebitis that troubled him during his last year in office. After he entered the hospital, doctors disclosed that a small blood clot had moved from Nixon's left leg to his right lung. While still president, Nixon was named an unindicted coconspirator in the case. President Ford subsequently granted him a pardon for atr? federal offenses committed white Nixon was in office. The defendants sought unsuccessfully to delay the trial until next year oh the grounds the unprecedented publicity genef* ated by Watergate, including the resignation and pardon of Nixon, would- make It ittipbsi sible to find unbiased jurors. Defendants along with Mitchell, Haldeman and Ehrlichman are former Assistant Atty. Gen. Robert C. Mardian and Kenneth W. Parkinson, onetime attorney for Nixon's reelection committee. Sirica granted a prosecution motion Monday to hold a separate trial for former White House aide Gordon C. Strachan. However, Sirica refused to dismiss the charges against Strachan, who claimed the case against him was based on testimony he gave under what he thought was an agreement it wouldn't be used against him. Later in the day, he rejected Mardian's request for a separate trial. Charges against a seventh defendant, former White House special counsel Charles W. Colson; were dismissed after he pleaded guilty in a separate case. All five defendants are charged with one count each of conspiracy to obstruct justice. All but Mardian also are charged with one count each of obstruction of justice. In addition, Mitchell, Haldeman and Ehrlichman are charged with lying to authorities investigating the break-in and cover-up. Two Arkansas natives given top commands NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Two Arkansas natives have been assigned to top commands in the Navy. Vice Adm. Joe Williams Jr., a Magnolia native, assumed command of the Atlantic Fleet Submarine Force at Norfolk. He had been relieved as commander of the Navy shipyard at nearby Potsmouth, Va., by Rear Adm. E. T. Westfall, a Camden native. The two admirals were classmates in 1940 at Magnolia A&M College, now Southern State College.

Mayan relic going back LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The consul general of Guatemala at New Orleans is to retrieve a 1,300-year-old Mayan Indian artifact today that was smuggled out of Guatemala to Arkansas several years ago. Harry K. Brown, formerly of West Helena, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court here last year to a charge that he had transported the stolen artifact from Florida to West Helena. He was fined $2,500 and placed on three years probation. The 6-foot-tall artifact is a large limestone tablet. The FBI seized the tablet, called a stele, from Brown's residence in early 1972. Since then, it has reposed in a storeroom in the basement of the Post Office Building on Capitol Avenue in Little Rock. Consul General Nery Rodolfo Valladares is to take possession of the 300-pound stele late today for shipment back to Guatemala. Dr. JLeonard W. Larson BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) Dr. Leonard W. Larson, 76, former head of the American Medical Association and the American Cancer Society, died Monday. U. S.
