Phone 3424512 ROCKWEIX CITY, Iowa (UPI) — ft group of Inmates at the women's state reformatory held a guard matron and counselor today to protest the facility's refusal to grant an "unescorted furlough" to an inmate to attend her father's funeral. Dale Buhl, public information officer for the state Social Services Department, said "about five or six" inmates were holding guard Florence Conrad and counselor Marge McKowan "against their will." He said^inmates had talked with prison' Superintendent Ted Walimian by phone telling him they had taken over a cottage at the facility and that they were holding the two women. Both Mrs. McKowan and Miss Conrad said by telephone that they were being held as hostages. The incident arose when inmate, Maria Spates, 21, of Waterloo requested late Thursday night to attend unescorted the funeral of her father in Waterloo today. Wallman said the request was denied because of her prison record, but said she could go with a prison official as an escort. Miss Spates became "unruly and very upset" according to Wallman and Miss Conrad was sent to the cottage to talk to her. She was later joined by Mrs. McKowan. Buhl said Miss Spates was held on both federal and state convictions of forgery and that prison policy prohibits women held on federal charges from receiving unescorted furloughs.

Sponsler, 1691 Newcomer Dr., a girl Thursday at 11:18 p.m. Mr. and Mrs. James C. ^haw Jr., 624 Brown Ave., a girl today at 9:22 a.m. the Watergate break-in, has admitted participating in meetings where espionage was discussed. But he said he never approved any of it. McCord told how the spy team first broke into the Democratic offices last Memorial Day to install wiretaps and photograph documents. They returned June 17, he said, after Liddy reported that "Mr. Mitchell liked the substance of the photography material that he had seen and desired a second entry operation to do more photographic work." Liddy also reported, according to McCord, that Mitchell wanted "certain information" about "one of the leading Democratic candidates" from the office of Hank Greenspun, editor and publisher of the Las Vegas, Nev., Sun. Liddy later also told him, he said, that Muskie "would possibly be a target of their interest in connection with the Las Vegas matter." Idea Was Scrapped McCord said Liddy went to Las Vegas to do "a casing job," but the idea was scrapped three weeks later. Liddy also said, according to McCord, that Mitchell trimmed their budget for espionage from $450,000 to $250,000 and received typed logs of conversations monitored through taps at the Democrats' offices. Ervin, whose committee hearings into the Watergate affair begin next Thursday, was critical in a news conference of the work of federal prosecutors. Noting the FBI and U.S. attorneys have been investigating the case since last summer, he said: "If they can't show divorce!they have discovered enough evidence to convict people by this time I think they maybe ought to go out of business." He said the Senate probe cannot hinder federal prosecutors because "we can't add very much to the publicity that surrounds this case." "In view of recent developments," he added, "it (the Senate probe) is perhaps a little more important because I think it is much more important to learn the truth about the Watergate affair than sending one or two people to jail." East Germany covers 41,610 square miles and has a population of slightly more than 16 I million.
