Saturday that left a white security guard dead Pleading on the air for a “black revolution" they surrendered after their last hostage made a bold escape The city police chief said two other blacks are being sought in the deadly bizzarre series of events that began when a 78-year-old white man was hacked in the face with a machete and ended with the takeover of the soul music station Police Chief Ed Wright said the five were black militants who “had boasted that they were going to kill police officers and make a grandstand play in Montgomery” He said the men gave Black Muslim names The trio in the bullet-riddled radio station in downtown Montgomery had at one point cried over the air: “There’s a Negro revolution and a black revolution I’m in the black revolution We want all you niggers to come on down” Wright said that the elderly white man was attacked without provocation and that the five then fled in a car Police pursued it rammed it and the five began running he said Wright said two escaped and the other three armed with sawed-off shotguns took over the radio station in a burst of gunfire that killed a guard M E Furr on a downtown street The elderly man who was not identified immediately was undergoing surgery Wright said The takeover of WAPX ended after two hours of tense stalemate when the black disc jockey Alphonzo Dixon scrambled to freedom Police said the gunmen had told Dixon to go to the door and hold up a mirror so they could watch the officers When he reached the door he burst through it to safety A black secretary in the building Gloria Gilmer earlier had been lowered to freedom on a fire ladder at an adjoining building after suffering a bullet wound in the takeover A spokesman at Jackson Hospital said she was in fair condition Mills says US is in recession WASHINGTON (AP) - Rep Wilbur D Mills promising to press after the Nov 5 election for passage of “a sound tax program” claimed Saturday that the nation is “in a serious recession” “Our real gross national product has decreased in the first three quarters of this year” said the Arkansas Democrat chairman of the taxwriting House Ways and Means Committee “The GNP decline was 7 per cent in the first quarter a further 17 per cent in the second quarter and a further slight decline in the quarter just completed” Mills added in a statement released by his office A usual definition for recession is two such declines in a row although some economists challenge this ABC-TV drawing by Freda Reiter via UPI Nine women and three men — eight of them blacks — make up the Watergate jury From

Reid and Sandra V Young Nixon shadow to hang over coverup trial WASHINGTON ( AP) — From 3000 miles away Richard M Nixon may have a bigger impact on the Watergate cover-up trial than any person or piece of evidence that goes before the jury First there are the tapes The jury will hear hours and hours of conversations with Nixon’s voice as well as those of the five defendants and other principals in the case Watergate prosecutors plan to ii troduce 33 separate presidential conversations Handling the government’s case in court will be assistant prosecutor Richard Ben-Veniste as had been planned before Ben-Veniste’s chief special prosecutor Leon Jaworski announced Saturday he was resigning Because the courtroom testimony may be conflicting the Nixon tapes will add up to the most important block of evidence in the trial Witnesses such as former White House counsel John W ’Dean III whose credibility has been an issue would ordinarily be troublesome additions to the prosecution’s case But when augmented by Nixon’s voice in conversations with Dean or when the former President discusses on tapes events about which Dean testifies the tapes become a kind of check and balance a second method for the jury to decide if they believe Dean’s testimony While Nixon was resting his phlebitis-stricken left leg at his seaside estate in San Clemente Calif last week hundreds of potential jurors in Washington were being asked if Nixon’s pardon would affect their ability to return a guilty verdict against the defendants in the case in which Nixon is among 19 unindicted co-conspirators Many answered yes — so many that the prosecutors worried that defense lawyers might pick a jury of persons unwilling to convict even if the evidence were strong enough Of course it is not publicly known how many of the 12 jurors finally chosen — they are largely middle-aged middle class and female — believe it is unfair to prosecute some of Nixon’s closest former aides while the ex-president goes free However the danger of a stacked jury was severe enough that US District Judge John J Sirica devised a special method for the final round of jury selection just to make sure the defense had no special advantage Last week former White House chief of staff HR Haldeman became the second of the defendants to declare his intention of subpoenaing Nixon as a witness Nixon’s testimony is already being sought by former White House domestic affairs chief John D Ehrlichman who wants the former president to back up Ehrlichman ’s claim that he unsuccessfully urged Nixon to make a full public disclosure on the original Watergate break-in within a few weeks after the break-in occurred Miller's Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning hot been cleaning carpets in the Southland area
