Mrs. Mitchell, wife of Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell and one of the Cabinet's most Martha Mitchell outspoken wives, received a copy at a Friday luncheon from comedienne Fannie Flagg, who made the recording. Miss Flagg, who also did a record impersonating Mrs. Lyndon B. Johnson, imitates Mrs. Mitchell's Arkansas drawl in the record. "She's just great," Mrs. Mitchell said of Miss Flagg, as the two exchanged a number of compliments. 0% Brother! ALTA LOMA, Calif. (AP) — Hal Beach, football coach at Alta Loma High School, has a problem. There are six brother combinations on his 33-man football squad and it sometimes gets confusing for the coach. "I have to call them by position instead of by name," Beach said. "The Steffler twins are a problem because they look so much alike. Bruce is a defensive safety and Byron is a slotback on offense and cornerback on defense. I really get those two confused." "During a crucial moment in a game, it can be quite a problem. I have to get everyone around me and keep them in those places so I don't get confused," the coach added. In addition to the Stefflers, Beach has to contend with Tim and Tom McKay. Tim is a defensive tackle and Tom a tight end. Pat and Ray Alexander are in the middle of the action since Pat is the offensive center and Ray plays quarterback. John and Kula Kuresa, a pair of brothers from Samoa, both play on the defensive unit. Craig and Clint Harris and Mike and Dave Allen are the other brothers on the team. There was almost another duo, but Mike Schab's twin is named Michelle and she doesn't play football. "It helps the team to have so many relatives," said Beach, "but it sure gets confusing at times." Hughes Has 'Heart' RENO, Nev. (AP) — Billionaire Howard Hughes, who has ibeen involved in a running feud with state gaming officials, got a round of applause from University of Nevada regents for donating $300,000 to the new medical school. Nevada Atty. Gen. Robert List told the regents Friday the medical sciences school will receive a check from Hughes within the next few days. "Despite the lumps he has taken, it is apparent that he is a man with a heart," List said of the reclusive industrialist. Nevada gaming officials and Hughes have been at odds lately over how the billionaire's gambling empire is being administered. Weather KANSAS — Fair and warmer Sunday and Sunday night.

And for the public, questions far outnumber answers. Meanwhile, the Cost of Living Council reported the Phase 1 freeze functioning well with overwhelming voluntary compliance. Nixon gave the nation on television Thursday night the outline of his proposed new arrangements, rather than specifics as to what pay raises and price increases may be permitted. Secretary of the Treasury John B. Connally followed up the next day with some amplification but notably with what amounted to a public plea, also on television, for AFL-CIO President George Meany to accept appointment to the proposed business-labor-public board to oversee wages. Meany Calls Meeting Meany didn't say yes or no. Instead he called a meeting for Tuesday of the AFL-CIO executive council and the heads of the independent United Auto Workers and Teamsters Unions. He said it is to discuss what he called White House interpretations of the program that are in conflict with interpretations given union officials earlier. Meany and other union leaders contended major elements of the new economic policy are stacked in business' favor. Dock Workers Return SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Longshoremen returned to work at West Coast ports Saturday under court order and slowly began the huge task of unloading cargo from nearly 250 ships that have been sitting idle for up to 100 days. Thousands of dockworkers crowded into hiring halls from San Diego to Seattle before dawn. Some men said they would be surprised if much cargo moved right away because many of the 15,000 members of the International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union were bitter about returning without wage hikes and other demands they had sought by striking. Most Went Home At Los Angeles Harbor, about 1,500 men showed up for work, but most of them went home because a machinist's strike had delayed preparations to resume work. About one-third of the 249 cargo-laden ships that had lain idly at anchor along the coast moved up to the piers, the shipping employers' Pacific Maritime Association said. Five Hurt in Crash in County Five persons were injured, none believed seriously, in tha collision of a truck and car at K96 and Hendricks late Saturday night. Names of the victims had not been disclosed at 1 a.m. Sunday. A spokesman at South Hospital said they were young persons. Four were from Hutchinson, and the fifth from Plevna. One of the vehicles was believed to have failed to obey a stop sign. Law enforcement officers also were investigating a report of an assault early Sunday morning. A woman in the 400 block of Whiteside reportedly found the man in her yard. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana said Saturday "we ought to give the President every support we possibly can and forget politics." Mansfield told newsmen he hopes organized labor accepts Nixon's invitation to participate on the planned Pay Board that is to rule on proposed wage increases. Mansfield disagreed with Leonard Woodcock, the UAW president, who said Friday he would refuse to serve if the President's Cost of Living Council has veto power over the wage and price panels. "In extraordinary circumstances you've got to have that kind of leash," Mansfield said. In Congress meanwhile, some Democrats were saying the leg- Hijacks Jet to Cuba MIAMI (AP)—An ex-convict who said he was a left-wing radical took a stewardess hostage and held a gun on her for three hours as he hijacked a partially-loaded Eastern Airlines jet from Detroit to Cuba Saturday. The hijacker, identified by Wayne County, Mich., Sheriff William Lucas as Richard Frederick Dixon, 31, of Pontiac, Mich., claimed he was a Kansas State University graduate and had a distaste for the American way of life. Appeared Nervous Eastern officials said Dixon, who tried to board Flight 953 to Miami and San Juan, P.R. at Detroit Metro Airport, was stopped for questioning after he appeared nervous. He then pulled a gun and ordered the plane to Havana. All 33 passengers, five airline employes and six crew members aboard landed safely in Miami after a seven-hour flight, that included a detour to the Communist island. Ninety-eight passengers had been scheduled to board the plane but it was hijacked before they all got on. Capt. W.E. Buchanan said he heard of the hijacker while he was on the ramp as passengers boarded. He turned and saw-a gunman. Stewardess Annely Schrot, 26, said for three hours the gunman sat in the passenger section with his pistol pointed at Big Wedding SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — Four sisters took four husbands in one ceremony Saturday during a folk Mass at St. Anne's Roman Catholic Church. In little more than an hour, Judith Hund was married to Gerald N. Howard, 27, an em­ ploye of the State Department of Human Resources Development; Janice Hund to Lt. Kenneth Smith, 24, an Air Force pilot; Joanie Hund to Darryl Sellas, 25, a San Bernardino policeman; and Jeannette Hund to Larry Jay Hyder, 20, a roofing company employe. Carol Bollinger, 23, another stewardess he had sitting next to him. Miss Bollinger said the hijacker described himself as the product of a "white middle class establishment family" but was "totally opposed to their ideas." Byrd To High Court? WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia, assistant Democratic Senate leader, is being considered by the White House for nomination to the Supreme Court, a high administration source said Saturday. "His name is at the White House and at the Justice Department," the official told a reporter. "He 's one of a number being considered." There are two vacancies on the high court and so far no names have emerged as likely Nixon favorites since Rep. Richard H. Poff, R.Va., took his name out of consideration a week ago. However, some published reports Saturday said Byrd is definitely the President's choice for one of the two spots. The administration source called those reports "way, way too strong." Others Also Considered He said others are also being considered, including some women. Reached at Morgantown, W. . Va., Byrd said he would have "absolutely, no comment" on reports that he is being considered. Byrd, 53, is a conservative who often sides with the administration and against the majority of Democrats in Senate battles. The hijacker told the stewardess he had served time at Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary in Kansas for bank robbery. He also told them he was sought by the FBI in connection with the escape of another prisoner. Lucas said in Detroit that Dixon was paroled last Aug. 27 after serving five years of a sentence for larceny from the Diamond Crystal Salt Co. credit union in St. Clair, Mich. Miss Schrot said when the plane landed in Cuba, the hijacker asked for political asylum and was escorted away by uniformed men. Ed Muskie to Visit Kansas City, Topeka KANSAS CITY (AP) - Sen. Edmund Muskie, D-Maine, who won support from Missouri's governor and two U.S. senators Thursday in his presidential bid, will visit Kansas City next Friday. Muskie, a member of a special Senate committee on aging, will be accompanied by Sen. Thomas Eagleton, D-Mo., for a tour of Jackson County's Mission East Nursing Home. The home was about to be shut down prior to sale by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Burglars Bulldoze Way into Store LOS ANGELES (AP) - Burglars literally knocked over the Crown Discount Store Saturday. Sheriff's deputies said burglars stole a bulldozer, drove it three blocks, knocked d o w n a wall and looted the store. Deputies said no one reported seeing the bulldozer move down the street in the area, south of Watts, sometime before dawn. Radios, television sets and record players valued at about $40,000 were stolen, deputies said. islative branch should insist on a voice in shaping the future economic control system. Among others, Sen. William Proxmire, D-Wis., chairman of the Senate-House Economic Committee, said Congress should set limits on presidential power in any extension and insist on Senate confirmation of members of the key boards. Chairman Wright Patman, D-Tex., of the House Banking Committee remarked, "I doubt we'll rubber stamp the whole package." Wants Years Extension Nixon wants extension of the freeze authority for a year beyond its April 30, 1972, expiration date and standby powers over dividends and interest. Patman and others contend he already has unused authority to freeze or roll back interest. The Cost of Living Council, which now administers the freeze, reported that during the week ended Oct. 5, more than 97 per cent of 10,951 spot checks on the freeze revealed no apparent violation or resulted in voluntary compliance. It said some 302 businesses or individuals refused to correct apparent violations, and these cases are under review. During the same week, the council said, requests for exemptions from the freeze totaled 471, up 27 per cent from the previous week. Quell Latin BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - Without a shot fired, nearly 10,000 loyal troops put down on Saturday an attempt by army rebels to overthrow the seven-month-old government of Gen. Alejandro Lanusse and upset his plans for elections. A rebe'l force of 1,200 gave up after holding out for 19 hours in the Pampa city of Azul, 150 miles south of here. Lanusse had sent his troops to put down "this sordid ... antipopular and totalitarian uprising ... with whatever means necessary." Col. Manuel Alejandro Garcia, the rebel chief, surrendered to Gen. Joaquin Aguilar Pinedo moments after the general, commanding the government task force, entered Azul. (Hutchinson News-UPI Telephoto) FOOTBALL FANS—Former President Lyndon B. Johnson and his daughter, Luci Johnson Nugent, watch the action in the clash between Texas and Oklahoma football teams in the Cotton Bowl in Dallas Saturday. Oklahoma won 48 to 27. Harper Fire Damage High HARPER — Residents of this town can hardly afford to buy a new fire truck — no matter how much they have in the coffer. Over the years, the town has had five major blazes while new fire equipment was on order. The latest fire came Saturday morning. A fast-spreading fire destroyed the Larry Miller body and fender shop and an adjoining barber shop. It also damaged an apartment to the rear of the barber shop. Total damage was estimated at $10,000. ACCIDENT VICTIM — Five persons were injured in the collision of a truck and car early Sunday morning at K96 and Hendricks. AU were treated at South (News Photo by Bob Harvey) Hospital, but hospital spokesmen said none appeared to be in serious condition. Here, ambulance attendants give first aid to one of the victims. Search for Murderer of Tulsa Girl TULSA (AP) - Tulsa police were searching Saturday for a Tulsa man for questioning about the bizarre strangulation and sex slaying of a high school girl. The body of Vicki Pappan was discovered Friday evening in the back of a truck at a Tulsa equipment repair company. The 18-year-old high school senior had been strangled with a plastic-coated wire, police said. A plastic practice golf ball was in her mouth, which— as were her eyes—was taped shut. She was bound at the ankles, knees and wrists, and her body wrapped in a sheet and a furniture pad. "It's obviously a sex crime," said Detective Lt. Bill Jones. Officers said they knew of a person who had approached psveral girls, asking them to pose for pictures while bound in the same fashion as Miss Pappan's body. Several "pornographic" books were found near the body and some contained pictures of persons bound in the same fashion, police said. Show Funds Will Buy Equipment Reno County Fire Dept. will be able to purchass a motor boat and other rescue equipment thanks to Junior Samples, a star of the television show, "Hee-Haw." Samples and several other country entertainers performed at the fire department's benefit show Friday night at Convention Hall. County fire chief Jc Pederson said an estimated 3,000 persons attended the show and that proceeds would go to purchase the boat and smaller rescue equipment. The Harper fire department received the alarm at 9 a.m. and, assisted by firemen from Anthony and Norwich, had the blaze under control at 10 a.m. Kenneth Leu, Harper chief, said the body shop, which is situated midway along Mair. Street, was collapsing when firefighters arrived. Spread From Trash According to Leu, the fire spread from burning trash at the rear entrance of the body shop. Leu said Larry Miller and another man had emptied two fire extinguishers on the trash, and Miller started to the front to get a third extinguisher. He was about midway to the front of the 100 foot by 40 foot structure when fire apparently swept up the outside wall and across a rafter. The rafter fell. Discovering that the front door was locked, Miller had to crawl out a window and turn in the alarm from across the street. Leu attributed the rapid spread of the fire to the fact Miller did considerable painting in the building and had painting materials around. "I was just getting ready to cut a man's hair when I saw some trash blowing out in the street," said barber Lewis Parker. "I told this man I was going to step out and look a minute to see what was happening." Parker said he looked outside, but decided the smoke was coming from some trash. "I went back in, picked up the comb and started combing his hair again," he said. "Then I saw smoke coming in the back room." Parker said a fire broke out Tuesday in the rear apartment owned by Ted Puis Jr., Kingman, but it was quickly extinguished. The young renter was not at home Saturday. Without a shop for the second time, Parker said he will relocate. He was burned out seven years ago in a large fire. According to Leu, the fire department has a snorkel unit on order, and it is expected to arrive this week or next week. Other fires while equipment was on order were about 1924, 1934, 1953 and 1965, Leu said.
