REDWOOD CITY (AP) -Uncle Sam has taken the secrecy wraps off some of the equipment reportedly used in a Howard Hughes-CIA project to lift part of a Soviet nuclear missile submarine from the floor of the Pacific Ocean in 1974. News reporters and photographers were allowed Thursday to tour two of the key pieces of equipment believed used to recover about one-third of the Russian sub from three miles below the ocean surface near Hawaii. About two dozen newsmen and newswomen climbed over the mammouth 1,900-ton platform which was reportedly lowered by cable over the sub by the Glomar Explorer, the mystery ship built by Hughes' Sum-ma Corp- for the CIA operation. The partially dismantled platform, which crewmen called "Clementine," was aboard the 324-foot barge that has transported it to the waters off Catalina Island in the past. Bargemaster Henry "Snuffy" Smith, who led the tour, said the barge was submerged with the platform aboard, then the underwater doors at the bottom of the Glomar Explorer were opened and Clementine was lifted up inside the ship. When the Glomar Explorer arrived at the recovery site, Smith said, it would lower Gementine to the ocean floor by cable. CIA sources have said the platform was equipped with a series of claws, which held the submarine as it was being lifted. The claws had been removed before news reporters made the tour. Smith refused to confirm that the mission involved recovery of the Russian sub. Summa said two years ago that the equipment was being used for deep sea mining, but the CIA later admitted ownership when the Los Angeles County tax assessor tried to tax Summa for it. Smith, an employe of Lockheed Aircraft Corp., which built Clementine at this San Francisco Peninsula community, said the platform was loaded into the Glomar Explorer twice, the second time after modifications had been made. The 610-foot Glomar Explorer, platform and barge have been turned overto the General Services Administration for disposal. GSA spokesman Stan Anderson said bids are being solicited for lease of the ship. They will be opened April 16, he said. Meantime, the ship is docked at Long Beach, Calif. The barge and platform have been turned over to the federal Energy Reserch and Develop-, ment Administration, which opened the equipment to the news media. , Don Reardon, deputy manager of the agency's Oakland office, said he undertands the platform and barge cost $40 million originally, but were headed for the scrap heap until it was decided to see if they could be used to conduct experiments on ocean water power generating plants. Reardon said it would be part of the agency's efforts to develop alternate sources of energy including solar, geothermal, nuclear and fossil fuel technology. Studies are under way to see if they could be used in that concept, where electricity can be generated by harnessing the 30-to 40-degree difference in water temperatures between the surface and about 1,000 feet deep.

California probate law requires that his down payment must be forfeited to make up any difference between his high bid and any subsequent purchase bid. His 10 per cent will apparently go to the Dandini estate and its heirs. Mrs. Franks, who was introduced to reporters by her son Zachary as "Roz," told scribes that she bought the former home of Harry James and Betty Grable in 1954 and, before that, owned a home that was part of the estate of cowboy star Tom Mix. The countess had originally willed her estate to Hillsborough, but the town refused to accept, so it was put up for sate. "i .'Li: i! r- SALE!

Reversible Doors Adjustable Slide-out shelves LOS ANGELES (AP)-Federal Communications Commission officials had trouble deciding which television shows were suitable for the "family hour," a former FCC consultant has testified. Barry Cole, a part-time consultant to the commission, testified in federal court Thursday that only two shows, "S.W.A.T." and "Hawaii FiveO," were agreed upon as being unsuitable for family viewing during a November 1974 FCC staff meeting. The FCC, the major, networks, and the National Association of Broadcasters were sued by television writers, directors and actors seeking to halt the ban on shows labeled unsuitable for family viewing. A January, 1975 FCC and network agreement created the family viewing hour, the period from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. Cole, in his second full day of testimony, said such shows as "Kojak," "The Rookies," and some movies scheduled for 8:30 p.m. were agreed upon by the staff as being borderline. Cole said there was little agreement among the staff regarding which shows' themes or language would be acceptable for family viewing. Plaintiffs claim that FCC chairman Richard Wiley on Nov. 22, 1974 had begun a campaign to coerce the networks into reducing the amount of televised sex and violence in the early evening. The networks contend that, while executive met with Wiley on that date to discuss the issue, there was no coercion. Cole, who had ended his role with the commission last summer, is an associate professor of telecommunications at the University of Indiana. He served in an "ombudsman" role with the FCC.
