NBC newsman Carl Stern said Tuesday that the White House expert, Dr. Michael Hecker of the Stanford Research Institute, may not agree with procedures used by the other experts. However, said Stern, Hecker will not dispute the conclusion of the six tape authorities, who said the tape underwent "the process of editing and re- recording at least five and perhaps as many as nine separate and contiguous segments." The panel, chosen mutually by the White House and the special Watergate prosecutor, did not say if the erasure was accidental or deliberate. But the group told U.S. District Court Judge John J. Sirica that "The recording controls must have been operated by hand in the making of each segment." Sirica also heard testimony from President Nixon's secretary, Rose Mary Woods, that she may have accidentally erased some of the tape while answering a telephone. Stern said Hecker "expects to testify whether it helps or hurts the President, and now it looks as though it will hurt." According to NBC, a White House spokesman said late Tuesday that nothing in Stern's story came from White House sources. There would be no further comment, the spokesman told the network. The controversial tape is a recording of a June 20, 1972, conversation between President Nixon and his former top aide, H.R. Haldeman, that took place three days after the burglary of the Democratic National Committee offices in the Watergate complex. PUTTHE"DAMPER" ON [A RISING FMPI rncrci K^l RISING FUEL COSTS!

Canfield, 56 and in his fourth term as mayor, tearfully disclosed his illness Sunday, saying he had learned of the diagnosis last year.

Milk order is reviewed EAST GRAND FORKS Minn. (AP) _ The president of the Red River Valley Milk Producers Pool said Tuesday a federal milk marketing order will make bottled milk receipts lower than the price paid for ungraded products. Pool president Erwin Vanek, East Grand Forks, said Grade A milk used in butter and powdered milk would be priced approximately 50 cents a hundredweight less than the un- graded class two product for the next four months. Dairy farmers through the area usually recieve 20 to 30 cents per hundredweight over the class two product. Vanek said. He said the Grade A dairy farmer was assured of receiving less than the average price of ungraded manufacturing milk. He said three fourths of the production was to be figured in, "a disaster price schedule." About 70 per cent of all Grade A milk produced in the Minnesota Wisconsin area goes into butter and powdered milk according to Vanek.

Abbott died at his home in Woodland Hills. His agent said the cause of death was not known. Costello died in 1959, two years after the team split up Abbott was the straight man in the comedy team, playing a somewhat stuffy man who was always correcting the impulsive, fumbling Costello. Abbott teamed up with Costello in 1925 and they played in vaudeville and burlesque until, about 1938 when they became "top bananas" on the circuit. They moved into New York appeared on the Kate Smith radio show and soon were in "Streets of Paris" on Broadway." Their first movie was "One Night in The Tropics." The tall, thin Abbott and the snort, fat Costello were the comedy kings of the 1940s and '50s, making dozens of films appearing weekly on radio and going into television in the late 1950s, Their most famous routine was "who's on first," which they performed five times for the late President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Abbott was born Oct. 2, 1895 in Atlantic City, N.J. His father was a circus advance man and his mother was a bareback rider. Ilis childhood was spent in the Coney Island section of Brooklyn. After the team split up, Abbott filed suit against Costello for money he claimed from their TV series. The suit was still in litigation when Costello died. Abbott is survived by his widow, Betty; a son and daughter; and three grandchildren. Funeral services are pending.

STATE FARM FIRE AND CASUALTY COMPANY story quoting well-placed sources. The file information was sought by the committee in connection with its investigation of a $100,000 campaign contribution given to Rebozo in 1969 and 1970 by Howard Hughes. The Times quoted well placed sources as saying the agreement to provide the committee with the politically sensitive tax returns and other materials was worked out Monday. A source told The Associated Press Tuesday night that the Watergate committee's chief counsel, Samuel Dash, had a meeting Monday with Burke W Willsey, an IRS official. But committee sources contacted Tuesday night declined to confirm the Times' account. The Times said that under the agreement, the IRS information would not be given to the committee but to one Democratic and one Republican staff member. Rebozo, President Nixon's close friend, has said the $100,000 Hughes contribution was left untouched in a safe-deposit box until it was returned to the Hughes interests last June 27. Herbert W. Kalmbach, N'ix- on's former personal attorney, reportedly told the committee last month that Rebozo told him he (Rebozo) had given the money to the President's two brothers, F.

Two men bound and shot four employes of the Hi-Fi Shop, then wounded the father of one of the victims when he went to the shop to find out why his son had not returned home, officers said. Courtney Naisbitt, 16, son of Mrs. Byron Naisbitt, who was killed, remained in critical condition with a head wound and other injuries. Orren W. Walker, 43, father of Stanley 0. Walker, 20, who was also killed, was reported in satisfactory condition with superficial gunshot wounds and a punctured eardrum received when one of the assailants forced a ballpoint pen into his ear. The third person lulled was Michelle Ainsley, 18. An autopsy showed she had been raped. The autopsy report also said Miss Ainsley, Mrs. Naisbitt and Stanley Walker had been killed by gunshot wounds in the back of the head and that their bodies revealed traces of a caustic liquid they apparently had been forced to swallow. Police said young Naisbitt also had apparently been forced to swallow a caustic lirj- uid.
