Prexy Aide Denies Bugging During LfiJ Administration Galesburg Register-Moil, Golesburg, 111, Tuesday, July 17,, 1973 7 By United Press InternaUonal A top assistant to President Lyndon B. Johnson said Monday the charge that bugging devices were used extensively at the Johnson White Mouse was "an outrageous smear on a dead President." Joseph A. Califano, a top aide to Johnson, said there was the capability to record conversations in Johnson's ofiice. But Califano said Johnson opposed all bugging. "The White Mouse was not Wired for sound," Califano said. George Reedy, Johnson's former press secretary, said he did not know if bugging devices were used by Johnson. "That doesn't mean it didn't go on," he said. "You have to realize that I was in the White House only until 1986 and that I was press secretary only until 1065." He said, "The facts are that presidents do many things which are unknown. to their, assistants." J. Fred Buzhardt, counsel to President Nixon, told the Senate Watergate Committee in a letter Monday that Johnson had installed listening devices at the White House similar to those used by Nixon. His statement came shortly after Alexander P. Butterfield, a former White House aide, told the committee about bugging practices at the Nixon White House. , A Secret Service spokesman said if the Johnson administra lion used a system for recording presidential conversations, it was hot operated by his agency. The spokesman said the agency serves as the repository for Nixon's tape recorded conversations, and the tapes are physically kept in the White House. READ THE WANT ADS!

BUSHNELL — Members of Bushnell City Council learned Monday night that a referendum must be approved before federal funds can be provided for a new recreation and cultural center. The Department of Housing i»nd Urban Development (HUD) teouires approval of a referendum by voters of the community before federal funds are released for the project. Mayor Harold Fitch said the purpose of the referendum is to gain voter approval of the construction plans. Ballots, he said, will contain information stating that no special tax will be lev- ed. N9 date for the referendum nas been set. The proposed center would be financed by $224,600 in federal funds and by $92,000 in local money. The original federal grant was $184,000 but an additional $40,600 was awarded recently to the city because of rising construction costs. Aldermen pointed out that there will be funds available to operate the new center once it has been completed. What Happens? Aid. Gaylord McCance asked the mayor what would happen if the referendum is defeated Fitch said the city wouldn't get any federal money for the project. The mayor said three steps are now being taken to assure Ihe city of federal funds. They include bank deposit of the city's share of $92,000, which has been done; obtaining a deed after purchase of land for construction of a center, and voter approval of a referendum. Aldermen agreed to the Bushnell VFW's offer to sell a 4.2 acre tract of land in the VFW Park to the city for $26,000 providing that $10,000 be returned to the city for the project. The price is still in excess of the $10,000 allocated by HUD for SIDEWALK SALE!

Pitch said that possibly 127,000 in a federal con* tingency fund could be used for land purchase. However, this must be approved by HUD, he said. Fitch said HUD'S target date for completion of the building is Dec. 31, 1974. Other Action In other action aldermen approved a request by C. S. Norcross and Sons, Bushnell, for temporary use of city-owned land for expansion of the plant. Authorities noted that part of the addition would extend onto a city terrace. Aldermen directed City Atty. Gordon Hunt to draw up an agreement which would permit construction with the stipulation that the city could, if necessary, have access to the land. Repairs to utilities that could be made without regard to dam age to live building will be included in the agreement. Couneilmen pointed to the im portance of the industry in Bushnell as the reason for approving the request. Hunt reported that the new zoning ordinance for Bushnell is more than half completed and should be finished by September. The city has no zoning ordinance at present. He also noted that the tax levy ordinance should be ready by the next meeting. .Aldermen agreed to compensate Steve Russell, the city recreation director, for duties beyond his contract.

Police Seek Frisco Treak' For Murders SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) - A "freak" roaming San Francisco may be responsible, police say, for the deaths of four young women whose nude bodies were found in school yards or parks. Homicide inspectors noted Monday that all four had been strangled within the past six weeks. The most, recent victim, found Sunday behind a high school gymnasium, was identified from fingerprints as Miss Nancy Patricia .Gidley, 24, an X-ray technician from Mountain Home, Idaho. Officers quoted an aunt of the victim as saying she came to San Francisco last Thursday to attend the wedding of a friend. The identification was possible because motel employes told officers the victim's description matched that of a guest who hadn't been seen since spending a night there Thursday. Fingerprints on the luggage matched that of the victim. Miss Gidley was wearing only a fish-shaped earring when her body was found. The coroner said the discovery was less than 24 hours after she was killed. Homicide inspector John McKenna said none of the victims lived in the same area, and all had different backgrounds, j "The only way to connect this is if we have some kind of freak who travels the whole city," he said.
