Technician, Ronald Duncan, left, and Dr. Joseph A. Muscari, head investigator for the project conduct the Space Particles By MIKE FEINSILBER WASHINGTON (UPI)Frederick C. LaRue is the first major figure in the Nixon re election committee and in the Watergate cover-up to plead guilty, seek mercy and offer testimony for the prosecution in the expected trials of his former associates in those enterprises. But, peering through thick lenses at the select Senate Watergate Committee Wednesday, the Mississippian offered recollections just as imprecise as those who preceded him He did implicate his old friend and colleague, John N Mitchell, mere deeply than Mitchell admitted last week. And he pointed to lawyer Charles W. Colson as applying pressure from the White House staff for getting the Watergate wiretapping approved. Colson has denied that. While LaRue was questioned the committee awaited President Nixon's response to its request for the secret White House tape recordings which would show- what his closest aides were telling him through the months Nixon insists he was in the dark about his administration's involvement. In his letter to Nixon Tuesday, Chairman Sam J. Ervin, D-N.C, asked for a meeting "within the next day or two." So far he has heard "not a word," he said Wednesday. Presidential Press Secretary Ronald L. Ziegler said the request was under study. He said "not to my knowledge' when asked if anyone at the White House was reviewing the tapes. He refused to say if Nixon will continue taping conversations in his offices and over his phones. LaRue, a social friend of Mitchell and his right-hand man at the Committee to Reelect the President (CRP), told of Mitchell's reaction when, for at hird time, G. Gordon Liddy's bugging plan came up for review at a strategy session March 30, 1972. ^ As 'La Rue * recalled it, Mitchell said, "Well, this is not something that will have to be decided at this meeting." Mitchell, last week, said what he said was: "This again? We don'i. need this. I'm,, tired of hearing about it. Out! Let's not discuss it any further." And Jeb Stuart Magruder, deputy campaign manager andj the only other person there, has testified that Mitchell at that meeting gave his approval to the plan—albeit "reluctantly." LaRue's testimony also involved Mitchell in the payment of $220,000 in "hush money" to assure the silence of the seven original Watergate defendants. Mitchell had said he had nothing to do with that. LaRue and Herbert W. Kalmbach, Nixon's personal lawyer, handled those payoffs. LaRue said he participated because he was sure "someone" had made a pre-arrest "commitment" to the defendants to pay their legal expenses and support their families if something went wrong. But under questions from Sen. Herman E. Talmadge, D- Ga., he said he had "no idea" who made the "commitment" or how much money had been promised. Earlier, Anthony Ulasewicz, the former New York City detective who delivered the cash, told how the requests from Mrs. E. Howard Hunt, wife of one of the defendants, snowballed into insistent demands for more and more money. They reached 1450,000 last summer, he said. experiments.

More than 40 uniformed police and plainclothesmen ringed the Heathrow Airport departure area barred to the public as Caetano stepped onto his plane. Police with binoculars lined rooftops for half an hour before Caetano arrived. He boarded his plane after chatting briefly with Foreign Office Minister of State Julian Amery and shaking the hand of every motorcycle policeman in his escort. Protesters Picket There were no incidents such as those that marked his four- day visit. Noisy protesters picketed and demonstrated over Opera Singer Dies Of Pill Overdose MIAMI (UPI) - Opera singer Saflwa Merrige-Abrams died early today without regaining consciousness from an overdose of pills she took Saturday after killing her former husband and two children. Mrs. Merrige-Abrams, 43, died at the South Miami General Hospital at 1:25 a.m., just hours after her pilot ex- husband, James Abrams, and children, Jack, 14, and Melisa Ann, 10, were buried. Shooting Saturday Abrams and the two children were shot to death in the couple's fashionable southwest Miami home last Saturday the day after the couple had been divorced after 19 years of marriage. Mrs. Merrige-Abrams had been performing locally for more than a decade and was rated by the directors of several South Florida opera companies as one of the best mezzo sopranos in the nation Mrs. Merrige-Abrams had turned down a number of offers to join larger opera companies that many people believe would have vaulted her to national stardom. But the attractive singer said she preferred to remain close to home to be with her husband, a National Airlines pilot, and help raise her two children. Divorce Final Mrs. Merrige-Abrams and her husband separated about a year ago and the tall, hand some aMine pilot filed for a divorce. The divorce became final last Friday despite the opera singer's claim she still loved Abrams and did not want the divorce. The day after the divorce was final, Abrams went to visit his children. Several hours later, police were called to the house and found Abrams and the two children dead and Mrs. Mer­ rige-Abrams unconscious.

Wednesday, Caetano said his [government would investigate the charges but told a news conference that from facts already gleaned from a preliminary inquiry, he could "most formally state" that the alleged massacre of 400 villagers in December "could not have taken place." Spanish missionaries returning from the area last week reported the massacre and said they would provide documented evidence later that it took place. Caetano did not elaborate on the nature of the preliminary evidence garnered by his government but said Portuguese authorities were pursuing the inquiry. Weaken Defense In a statement issued later, Caetano said protests that accompanied his visit were aimed at weakening Portugal's defense of its overseas territories and to force the Portuguese government to change its colonial policy. He rejected the idea that the white man should leave Africa and that the African continent should be reserved only for black Africans. "The idea that the white must leave southern Africa cannot, therefore, be accepted," his statement said, "And, today, this is the aim proposed: by the movements which are! calling for the immediate independence of the territories with the handing over of government to the natives." Referring to Portugal's war against African guerrillas, Caetano said: "It is much more important to win souls than to kill people" and added: "Therefore the Portuguese government rejects accusations of genocide or of methodic cruelty in military operations. Condemning all needless violence in a struggle the aim of which is to defend territories and peoples from insidious guerrilla activity, the Por-j tuguese government vigorously, denies that it has ordered on tolerated. recourse to inhuman! methods." Suake Wius Movie Role HOLLYWOOD (UPI) - The winner of a movie studio ATHENS (UPI) - A Palestinian Arab armed with a submachine gun and hand grenades today seized 15 hostages including an elderly American, barricaded himself inside an Athens hotel and threatened to kill them one by one unless a Greek minister met to negotiate with him. The minister refused. Amalia Hotel Police said the gunman, who identified himself as a member of an "anti-Zionist group," was holding the American, a Greek Orthodox priest, three children and three policemen and other hostages in the Amalia Hotel on Constitution Square in the heart of Athens. The gunman, a submachine gun in one hand and a grenade in the other, ran into the nearby hotel where he herded the hostages together after failing to break into the Israeli El A\ Airlines office, police and an El Al spokesman said. Threatens American The gunman threatened to kill first the American and then the priest unless First Deputy Prime Minister Stylianos Pat- takos came to the hotel to negotiate with him. "I will kill everybody if Pattakos doesn't come," wit­ nesses quoted the gunman as saying. Libyan Ambassador Ahmed Ragab Feitur went to the hotel to negotiate with the Arab after Pattakos said he would not meet the terrorist in person. A spokesman for the ambassador said he was extending a Greek government guarantee of safe conduct to the gunman, barricaded on the mezzanine floor of the hotel.. On Bunker Hill, "Don't fire till you see (he whites of their eyes," was an order aimed at saving gunpowder as much as assuring a telling toll among the attacking Redcoats.
