Qalesbuig Register-Matt GALJBSBtJftG, ILL., WED., JULY ii, \m SEC. 8 PAGE 21 Martha Missing, Calls Continue "lllllliilllllllliill" 1. Oil Pipeline Route Divides Governors WASHINGTON (UPI) - Martha Mitchell said today she completely supports her hus* toand in his Watergate tes* timony. The wife of the former attorney general and Nixon campaign director told UPI in an early morning telephone call: "I want you to know that my husband is absolutely correct in all of his testimony ... He is completely honest. I'm standing completely beside him because I know he's telling the truth." Mrs. Mitchell didn't attend Tuesday's hearing, but her name came up frequently. In her early morning call, Mrs. Mitchell said she was phoning from "Washington, D.C., where I'm staying with my husband." She declined to say where in Washington. Early in his testimony Tuesday, John N. Mitchell drew a laugh from the crowded hearing room when he referred to the detailed telephone logs he maintained as attorney general and later as President Nixon's campaign manager. "You will see, that I kept extensive logs," he said. "All my calls were logged including those of my daughter and my wife. By the way, my wife calls a lot more often than my daughter." It Was an obvious reference to Mrs. Mitchell's proclivity for making phone calls, especially to reporters, to express her views. At another point, Mitchell denied that he had attended a political meeting on the evening of June 28, 1972 as a previous witness had alleged. "I was in New York on June 28 and I arrived back in Washington early that evening," he said, "and the passenger I had with me was not about to let me attend any more meetings that evening." Under questioning by Sen. Herman Talmadge, D - Ga., Mitchell was asked why he resigned as campaign manager July 1, 1972, four months before the election. "I thought it was the most publicized resignation in history," MitcheU told him. "I had some long range threats and phone calls that if I didn't get out of politics I was going to lose my marriage."

CUT ALONG LINE .. Where Banking Comes to Life! THE FARMERS AND MECHANICS BANK GALESBURG, ILLINOIS MEMBER QF FEDfRAL DEPQSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION into hand grenades began a chain reaction of blasts Tuesday, climaxing with the detonation of a truck loaded with grenades. Four women were killed and 35 other persons were injured. "We had no warning," said Irene Felan, 19, a fuse inspector. "I don't even remember hearing an explosion. Then the ceiling started caving in and it was everybody for himself. I don't know how I got out, but I did." The four women killed were Doris Brown of Fort Worth, Tex., and Debbie Spurelle of Joshua, Tex., both 19, Sue Grisham, 22, of Grandbury, and Dorothey Cole, 51, of Cleburne. Most of the injured victims were also women. Harold Owen, president of Gearhart- Owen Industries, Inc., said his plant hires more women on the assembly line because they "are faster with their hands than men." The first explosion rocked the area shortly after noon and blew out a large window in an office building a half mile away. Miss Felan said she began walking to the main gate and she could hear several other explosions as she went. Those must have been some of the fuse boxes which were lying on the floor," she said. "Then the fire got to the big van parked outside. That's what made the big explosion. They had been loading it with assembled grenades." That explosion "knocked the man next to me to the ground," .said Marsha Buckner of the ICleburne-Times Review newspaper. "I'd say we were a quarter of a mile away at the most. It shook the ground. It shook me." The plant is a mile north of Cleburne, a city of 16,000, 30 miles south of Fort Worth. A company spokesman said the plant makes gunpowder, ammunition and industrial explosives as well as detonating systems for grenades. RAPID CITY, S.D, (UPI) Midwestern governors are divided over the route to be chosen for Alaskan oil to the lower 48 staftes—whether to pipe it to Alaska's southern coast for shipment in tankers or to use a pipeline across Canada. The governors, attending the 12th annual Midwestern Governors Conference, Tuesday voted down support of an 11-month Senate study of a trans- Canadian pipeline route from Alaska to the Midwest by a 6-5 margin The Senate has not yet decided whether to undertake the /trans-Canadian route, but the study of its feasibility is included as an amendment in legislation to allow piping of Alaskan oil to the rest of the country. There have been court rulings to the contrary. The study proposal Is seen In die Senate as a move to block the already surveyed trans- Alaskan route to the West Coast. Wisconsin Gov. Patrick Luccy introduced the proposal to support the trans-Canadian route study. One governor, David Hall of Oklahoma, said that both pipelines are needed to meet the nation's oil requirements. The vote came shortly after Govs. William G. MUlikcn of Michigan and John J. Gilligan of Ohio departed the conference. Lucey said he had had the assurance of both governors' votes and It would have given hint a 74 edge, The 6-3 vote, he said, was thus ,, indecisive. H The governors left for discussion today the question of endorsing a nationwide "power grid." Gov. Arthur Link of North Dakota has introduced a resolution calling for the governors' support of federal legislation establishing a nationwide grid system to supply wholesale electric power to all retail electric systems Link said the system would "facilitate the most economical use of fuel, water, land and air resources and prevent monopoly control of electric energy." Another resolution before the group would put tho governors on record as favoring the "immediate cessation of controls on the export of soybeans, soybean products and other farm products."
