6A CORPUS CHRISTI TiMES, Wed., Aug. 18, 1971 PRESIDENT NIXON CHATS WITH TERENCE CARDINAL COOK . . . spoke at Knights of Columbus convention in New York (AP Wirephoto) Witness Says Watson Was Calm During Tate Slayings LOS A N G E - L E S If) -Charles "Tex" Watson was calm and composed when he led three young women on a murder foray at Sharon Tate's estate in August, 1969, one of the women testified yesterday. Linda Kasabian, formerly a star prosecution witness at the trial of Charles Manson and three women, told jurors at Watson's murder trial that Watson was "very much in control" of himself the nights of Aug. 8 and 9 when Miss Tate and six other persons were slain. After directing the slayings of Miss Tate and four other persons at her home, she said, Watscn paused to use an outdoor hose to wash off the blood. Watson calmly told the others he had to "get a drink of water," she said. Her testimony apparently was aimed at countering the defense's contention that Watson, 25, was mentally affected everything^ popping up poplin Fresh poplin pickings now at Sears for a remarkable low p_rice.

By FRANK CORMIER NEW YORK m -- President Nixon, barnstorming the r country on behalfof his blockbuster economic program, has sidetracked h i m s e l f long enough to make a strong" defense' of Roman Catholic parochial schools. Speak'ng last night -at the 89th convention dinner of the Knights of Columbus, an organization of Catholic laymen, Nixon drew the warmest applause after pledging efforts to combat the closing of parochial schools, which he said are shutting down at the rate of one a day. Appearing after New York's Terence Cardinal Cooke had called for greater federal aid for church-sponsored, education, Nixon said, "T want to associate myself,with the remarks of 'his eminence" and prompted prolonged cheers by declaring that th^ "nuses o f parochial school closings must be combatted. "We must resolve to stop that t r e n d and 'turn it around," he said, but did not indicate any specific measures he might have in mind. Making his first public appearance since announcing Sunday a temporary wage- price freeze and other steps aimed at countering economic tils at home and abroad, Nixon appealed for individual sacrifices to help make his program work. "It's easy to sit back and criticize; it's hard to make the sacrifices, do the work, make the extra effort that makes the difference between a nation on the way down PI* a nation on the 'way up," he said. \ Nixon drew more applause as he stated, "When so rriany ·voices are r u n n i n g down America,; the time has cone to speak up for America." He said, "We cannot let the apostles of defeatism and self- doubt chip away at our moral strength." From New York, following a breakfast meeting with Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller, Nixon was bound today for Springfield, Dl., to pay homage to Abraham Lincoln who made his home there and to visit the Illinois State Fair. The fair traditionally is a magnet for traditionally is a magnet for campaigning politicians. But Victoria Has Short Blackout VICTORIA UP)--A dragline operator accidentally cut a 71,000-volt power line yesterday and knocked out power in this South Texas city and over a rural area for miles around. Telephone communications also were blacked out for a time, when the large number of calls about the power failure overtaxed the telephone rystem.

The President, whose wife Pat is making her own cross-country tour, arranged to spend tonight at a secluded lodge in Grand Teton National Park in northwestern Wyo- ming. Mrs. Nixon's simultaneous trip has the announced puroose. of calling public attention to the President's program for creating mor*e recreation and park areas. In discussing his economic program, Nixon did not go be- yond'the substance of his Sup- day announcement but did talk more specifically about the individual sacrifices he is asking, saying: "It's not easy for the working man to. forego for a while a wage increase he deserves. "It's not easy for a businessman to hold the line on prices when his costs are high and profits are slim. "It's not easy for federal employes to cover the same amount of work with less personnel because of a cut in federal spehd'ng. "It's not easy .for investors -- more than 30 million of them -- to forego an increase in dividends." However Nixon said, '.'If the temporary sacrifices of each of these Americans will result in stopping the rise in the cost of living for all Americans, this is a great goal worth sacrificing for." . ; HONG KONG CUS TM ALBERTO'S TAILORS PRESENTS SHAM IN CORPUS CHRISTI Wednesday, Aug. 18th thru Sunday, Aug. 22n 3 MEN'S SUITS FOR ONLY ICO One Monogramed Shift Free Hlw« Gel custom mode clothes ol your own choice materiol from 8,000 imported latest wear material samples.
