The heckler's remark came as Nixon was finishing a speech at a San Mateo, Calif., rally Oct. 29. Guards began escorting James Heavey, 33, of San Francisco, from the auditorium, but when the speech ended, Nixon called him back and lectured him on freedom of speech. Heavey's suit charges he was assaulted, battered and falsely de tained by 12 men under Nixon's supervision, suffering "grave and severe humiliation, embarrassment and shame, including shock and injury to his nerves and nervous system." The complaint describes the men who seized Heavey as "agents, servants and employes" of the vice president who "were at all times acting within the course and scope of their employment and under .the direction and control and supervision" of Nixon.

Mounted 49 70 PLUS TAX Plus Free Wheel Area Still in Grip of Smog LOS ANGELES (#)--For the fourth successive day, Southern California was in the grip today of traffic-paralyzing, eye-smarting smog and fog that the weather man says will continue over the weekend. Indicative of the blinding effect of the fog, which rolled 10 miles | inland from the Pacific, was a traffic report of 1,470 crashes since j the dense, ground-hugging mist started last Wednesday. However, I only two deaths were attributed directly to traffic. Fog closed Los Angeles International an'. Long Beach airports again last night. Lockheed airport at inland Burbank, usually free of fog, was closed for an hour and then reopened. Football games scheduled for last night were postponed. At Long Beach, a rugby game between teams representing New Zealand and Australia was halted because the spectators couldn't see what was going on. Visibility in Los Angeles Harbor was three-quarters of a mile. The fog slowed but did not stop the movement of ships. Fog horns in the harbor at Santa Monica had wailed steadily 48 hours. Even Santa Claus was grounded by fog in Santa Monica. Retail merchants there had arranged for him to arrive by helicopter. The children were on hand, despite the gloom and the mist, but old Santa just couldn't fly through the fog. The merchants changed signals and Santa finally showed up late, riding in a slow-moving bus. The kids weren't impressed. Cities in the metropolitan Los Angeles, area were asked to refrain from burning trash until the smog and fog seige is ended,' Dr. Frederick D. Newbarr, Los Angeles County's chief autopsy surgeon, said microscopic studies will be made of three infants who died of respiratory ailments and added: "But we have no test to; determine definitely that smog in any way -contributed to ttieir deaths." Autopsies indicated yesterday two of the infants succumbed to pneumonia. Los Angeles police arranged for extra duty officers to handle the anticipated weekend traffic.

Doss died Oct. 6 and a state-performed au topsy showed poison in his stomach, Edmondson said. Meantime some evidence of poison was found in the body of Richard L. Morton Sr., 69, of Emporia, Kan.. Edmondson said. Morton died May 18. 1953. Later Mrs. Doss met her third husband through a Lonely Hearts club. Tulsa County officers were to leave for Lexington, N. C., today to join an investigation into the death of Harley Lanning. Lanning married Mrs. Doss in 1947 and died in 1952 at the age of 54. His death had been attributed to a heart condition.
