Congress disagrees (Continued from Front Page) N.Y., contended Ford's testimony "raised more questions than it answered." It was under Miss Holtzman's questioning, on how Ford could answer the "suspicions raised" in the public imind on whether the pardon was part of a deal, that Ford interrupted to make one of his major points. "I want to assure you ... and the members of Congress and the American people that there was no deal, period, under no circumstances," he said. Ford said the first mention ever made to him of a pardon for Nixon came from Haig during a meeting Aug. 1 — nine days before Nixon resigned — at which he said Haig also informed him of upcoming "devastating, even catastrophic" disclosures that might remove Nixon from office. A Ford pardon for Nixon was one of six alternatives Haig listed, Ford testified. He said Haig did not advocate any of the options. Ford said he was shocked and stunned by the word that he might be about to become president, and told Haig he would think about what to do overnight.

Wilbur t). Mills, D-Ark.; apologized repeatedly Thursday night for his involvement in the Tidal Basin incident as he made his first public appearance since the Oct. 7 occurrence. Mills said he "did something I shouldn't have done — I drank champagne when I knew it went to my head right quickly." Mills, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, was addressing a friendly crowd of about 200 persons, mostly members of the Little Rock JayceeSi He sometimes responded in a light vein to questions about the matter. Mills glanced at his wife, Polly, 67, whose left foot and calf was in a cast, and said, "There is no difference between us. After you've been married as long as we have, you get so used to one person that no one else can come between you." A newsman asked why Annabel Battistella, 38, had attempted to jump from Mills' car before police stopped it about 2 a.m. Oct. 7 near the Tidal Basin, a backwater of the Potomac River at Washington, D-C. Mills said he didn't know. Mrs. Battistella did not indicate by any remarks she made what her thinking was.at that time, he said. On Oct. 10, Mills said, Mrs. Battistella's elbow had struck his glasses, breaking them and causing several small cuts on his face. Police said Mills had emerged from the car bleeding from the cuts and smelling of alcohol. U.S. Park Police in Washington said they rescued Mrs. Battistella from the Tidal Basin after she got out of the halted car and jumped into the water. Mills raised the incident shortly after being introduced at the Jaycees meeting. "First, I want to comment on a recent experience I had and offer some advice," he said, bringing up the subject to the laughter and applause of the Jaycees. "I was one of those who went out ohkni&ii," Mffls said 1 . '"?"• did something I shouldn't have done — I drank some champagne when I knew it went to my head right quickly. And it did. "A man drove the car that is still in my name. It isn't paid for yet. As soon as it's paid for, the title will be transferred, but not until then. "He didn't know anything about driving the car, apparently; so, he didn't turn on the headlights. Arid the streets of Washington were so bright Tf* where we were that it didn't occur to me, having had some champagne, that the lights weren't on. "Now I've been embarrassed beyond words about this experience, as I've said. I've apologized publicly on several occasions for what happened! I apologize again tonight for what happened. As I say, 1 was wrong in ever taking one drink of champagne because I learned years ago that I couldn't drink it, and I have learned in more recent years that you can't drink anything else and do very much. "So I apologize to you, my friends, for any embarrassment I might have caused you. I hope it's nothing compared to the embarrassment that I've caused myself and my family." He was warmly applauded and cheered several times by the Jaycees as he gave his explanation and apologies for the incident. Mills is opposed in his bid for a 19th term by Republican Judy Petty of Little Rock. He asked the Jaycees for their support in his race. One questioner asked why Mills was attracted "to a third- rate nightclub like the Jun- kanoo." "Sometimes you do what your guests want to do, and that is a Carribbean restaurant, it's not a third-class restaurant at all, and I understand it's a very good restaurant; the food was good," Mills replied. "Because they wanted to go, that's why I took them." He said he had not been to the restaurant prior to the night of Oct. 6. Asked why he waited three days before correcting an announcement by his office that Mills was not involved in the Tidal Basin incident, Mills said again that a misunderstanding had caused the earlier announcement. He also said he was embarrassed and that "for two or three days, I didn't want to be seen by anybody." He also said he had been ill with "the flu or something." • . , - i t , "'•' 'A newsman later raised the question of the delayed clarification again. Mills said he had read nothing about the incident until Oct. 9 and did not realize until then that his office was saying he had not been at the incident. A Jaycee said there were news reports that the incident had diminished Mills' prestige among his colleagues and there might be an attempt to remove him from the job of chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. family center SOON.
