How to bid at Channel 6 auction Hyou're one of the thousands o viewers who plans on being aiUctlve bidder at this year's Chiwnel I TV auction - which , njiu for five days and began Monday at 3:30 p.m. -- here are «\few, pointers, provided by auction chairman Margaret dmningham, which should help . you get your bids in faster. First, the bidder stays home, washes Channel 6, and makes hispid by telephone. Each item and service up for sale is described and shown by well- known local personalities who sitve as on-camera TV auctioneers. There are four or five auctioneers at different tables qffering different things. [Tltfe television cameras go from; table to table, giving a viewer the opportunity to constantly bid on something else. As soon as the auctioneer is finished showing the items on table one, bids are taken while the camera moves on to table two v Once the auctioneer has described .the item -- including "its number--it's up to the home viewer. 3mShould the viewer want to make a bid he calls the special Channel 6 auction phone vnumber -- 297-0058 -- and tells 'the,operator what he wants to bid on and the price he's willing 40 pay. The information is then /(taken to the auctioneer offering .the .item for sale. ' .iiln many ways the Channel 6 .auction is very much like any ''other auction, with the exception that the bidder doesn't ·iknow immediately how much 'more someone else is offering ^forthe item he wants. For while "thebids are coming in on one table, the camera is showing "items being offered at another ...Ub'lc. However, within several minutes the camera will swing back to the original item bid on and the auctioneer .tells what the current high bid is. For example, a viewer may be bidding «5 on a »50 lamp, butthecurrenthigh bidis J40. If the viewer still wants the lamp, he should call the auction number again and raise his $25 bid to the top price he's willing to pay over the $40 already bid by someone else. That's why it is always wise to make your first bid the top price you're willing to pay -say 85 to 95 per cent of retail value. In that way you'll save yourself time in calling back to raise your bid and can spend more time bidding on other things! When a viewer is the high bidder on any one item, a confirming operator will call him--usually within an hour -and tell him when and how to pick up his purchase. No one should consider himself the top bidder on any item until he has received a call from the confirming operator. It is always wise to keep track of the things you're interested in. Make a note of all the items that appeal to you, the number that's been assigned to them, their location (table number) and who the auctioneer is. Complete, accurate information vill always get your bid to the auctioneer faster. If a bidder doesn't know the number of the item he's bidding on, or on what (able it's displayed, the person carrying the bid (the bid-runner) from the operator to the auctioneer has to search for it; by (he time he finds the item it may have already been sold to someone else. Should a buyer wind up ·paying more for the item than its retail value, he's entitled to deduct the overpayment as a contribution to Channel 6. For example: a buyer pays $52 for an electric drill (not including tax) and the retail price is $45; he is entitled to claim the 17 over'the retail price as a donation and' may deduct it as a contribution when filing his 1973 income tax return. Remember, the money raised from the Channel 6 auction helps the public TV station pay :for weekend operations and provides the funds for the production of local programs. It's a fun way to do your shopping and help a worthy cause at the same time! Tiies., Apiil H, l»73 (iKEELEY (Cute.) TRIBUNE 13 Lawyer says McCord had no direct knowledge of higher-ups involved in bug -Junior Editors' Quiz on E junior cunuia v*uij. wti THE HURDY GURDY -- ir vV/vs A CITI?? /M1rl£ EARLY 1900'$ By STEVEN A. COHEN Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) James W. McCord's lawyer says the convicted Watergate conspirator has no direct knowledge that any high-level official in President Nixon's reelection effort knew of plans to bug Democratic headquarters. Talking to newsmen Monday, attorney Bernard W. Fensterwald indicated that most of McCord's second-hand information about planning the Watergate bugging operation came from G. Gordon Liddy, former counsel to the Commillee for Re-election of the President. Liddy was convicted with McCord, former security chief for the campaign, as a result of the wiretapping. But, unlike McCord, Liddy has refused to talk about Watergate with a federal grand jury. Several stories based on news leaks have said McCord told a Senate committee investigating Watergate that various high- level officials in the Nixon campaign and in the White House were at least aware of plans to wiretap Democratic headquarters in the Watergate building last June. Presidential chief of staff H.R. Haldeman, former Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell and White House Counsel John W. Dean HI, named in various news accounts, have denied any advance knowledge. Fensterwald said McCord has first-hand knowledge about much on which he has testified, but does not know for a fact whether anyone higher than Liddy in the re-election apparatus was involved. The lawye.' said McCord testified for 2'z hours Monday and has given the grand jury enough information to lead lo indictment of two more persons. Fensterwald did nol name them, but indicated he was referring to two men who came lo Washington from Miami with four Watergate defendants during the planning stage of the operation. In his opening statement at the trial in January, chief prosecutor Earl J. Silberl said six men from Miami registered under aliases at Washington's Manger-Hamilton Hotel and later at the Watergate Hotel before the break-in and bugging of Democratic offices. Four were identified as defendants in the trial. The other two, who registered under the names of Jack Rondeau and Mr. Piedro, were not mentioned again during the proceedings. The four--all Cubans living in Miami--and former White House consultant E. Howard Hunt pleaded guilty to charges growing out of the wiretapping. In another development, Kenneth Wells Parkinson, a lawyer for the Nixon re-election committee, denied McCord's reported testimony lhat Walergale defendants were pressured to keep quiet about I he case. The New York Times said Monday that McCord told Ihe grand jury he believes Parkinson used money and pressure to keep other defendanls silent after their arrest. A spokesman for the re-election committee said Ihe report was "an absolute lie." The Washington Post carried a story in today's editions quot- ing sources as saying McCord testified he received $3,000 a month from Hunt's lale wife to keep silent. The Post said McCord also testified he was told by Mrs. Hunt that she was paying the four Miami defendanls $1,000 a month. Mrs. Hunt was killed in an airplane crash in Chicago last December. Parkinson represents Ihe Committee for Ihe Re-election of the President in a series of civil suits filed as a result of Ihe June 17 break-in and bugging. Expense records filed by Ihe committee with the General Accounting Office show lhal Parkinson's firm was paid some $132,000 in legal expenses be. tween July 19 and Nov. 22. A spokesman for Ihe re-election committee said Ihose "are legitimate legal fees for which we've been billed and which have been paid."

A tn - under cross-examination on 'We Xeroxed Pentagon Papers,' Russo says summing testimony By LINDA DEUTSCH Associated Press Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) - "We Xeroxed the Pentagon papers, and the Pentagon papers are very important," says Anthony J.

Uusso, who continues his testimony today, said all he knew about the Pentagon papers before they were copied was what he had heard from Ellsberg one day in 1969 as they chatted on the beach outside Ellsberg's Malibu, Calif., apartment. "He said he was reading an interesting study" that was to have revealed "deception" in American Vietnam policies, Russo said. Russo said Ellsberg subsequently asked him to arrange . to copy the study. He said a friend, Lynda Sinay Resnick, had a copying machine in her Hollywood advertising agency and Ihe copying of (lie papers, marked "Top Secret-Sensitive," took place there on at least eight nights. Russo said Ellsberg's children visited the copying sessions once and so did former South Vietnamese Ambassador Vu Van Thai. Mrs. Resnick helped snip classification markings off Ihe copies because "this lop secret marking could scare somebody if they don't know how meaningless it is," said Russo. Mrs. Resnick and Thai were named as unindicted coconspirators in the case. Russo's most dramalic moments on the stand came as he told of his disillusionment with the war and his Iransformalion from "establishment"researcher to antiwar nclivisl. At one point, he started crying after telling of an interview with a captured Norlh Vietnamese soldier--"the strongest mnn I ever met, I mean by constitution and personality." ·He said the interview look place in 1965 while ho was in Vietnam on assignment for Ihe Rand Corp. to study "Viet Cong motivation and morale." Ells- berg also worked for Rand. "It had quite an effect on me." Russo said of the interview. "He was very committed and very sincere.... II was from him that I learned first what the people in the villages really thought.... He said he would never give up, no matter how much he was tortured--and he had been tortured," Russo said. Of his friendship with Ellsberg, wlio also had been in Vietnam for Rand, Russo said, "We always talked about Vietnam, the situation there." By 1969, Russo said, they shared the same views. "I remarked to Dan lhat I had seen a very definile pattern of lying and deception and alteration of facts (by the U.S. government) on Vietnam," Russo recalled. "Dan said he had come to much the same conclusion." DRAPERY SALE 25% Off 25% off on all custom made drapes with Sunmaster fabrics NOW THRU APRIL 14 Choose from several hundred patterns and styles.
