32 Galesburg Register-Mqil, Golesburg, jll. : _Wednesday,Aug. 1, 1973 Gainsville 8 Fail in Bid To Drop Trial Counterattack on Bug Assault Expected To Be Aimed at Cox, Media GAINESVILLE, Fla. (UP!) — A federal judge refused Tuesday to dismiss the case against the "Gainesville eight" following a dispute over the presence of two FBI agents with telephone equipment in a room adjoining the one used by defense attorneys. "You're making a mountain out of a molehill," U.S. District Judge Winston Arnow told the defense attorneys. Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Schneider told the judge the two agents were checking the prosecutors' telephone lines against wiretaps. Schneider said he requested the FBI "check our lines to see if any of them were bugged." Arnow also denied a motion ^ by defense attorney Larry Turner that the suitcase of electronic equipment found with the agents be impounded. The defendants, seven members of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War and one sympathizer, are charged with conspiring to violently disrupt the 1972 Republican Convention at Miami Beach. The dispute over the presence of the FBI agents brought to a close the first day of the trial which was taken up with jury selection. Ten prospective jurors were dismissed and one seated. The defense attorneys went to Arnow after FBI agents Carl Ekblad and Robert Romann were spotted through an air conditioning vent in the wall of the room in the federal courthouse being used by the defense. Arnow sent two U.S. marshals to the room and they excorted the agents to the . TTor\ rr judge's chambers where thejMlSS America LsU lOUr By EUGENE V. RISHER WASHfflttMt (UPI) Sorely tired! of being hammered daily On tile Watergate affair, the Nixon White Mouse is poised for a counterattack. Washington Window According to officials in a position to know, it will be launched in full a week of 10 days after the President's two former high-level aides, John D. Ehrlichman and H.R. Haldeman, complete their testimony before the Senate Watergate committee. Ehrlichman finished his testimony Monday and Haldeman immediately followed him as a witness. Ite PmMmt was arid to be fearful that his prestige and credibility were being so eroded by the Watergate affair and all this has come to symbolize that his ability to govern is hi jeopardy. According to these sources, he i3 being urged to escalate* the conflict from a legal to a political or ideological battle in which it will be charged that Nixon's enemies are seizing on the issue not to punish wrongdoers for past excesses and prevent future ones, but to destroy him and (the policies he stands for, the policies which more than 60 per cent of tile Oklahoma Prison Repairs Require; Inmate Transfers Gagged members of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War protest Judge Winston Arnow's threat of contempt for speaking out against the government in front of the Ruling 'Gags 9 Protestors federal courthouse in Gainsville, Fla., on the eve of the first day of the 'Gainsville Eight' conspiracy trial.

NEW YORK (UPI) - Miss America, Terry Ann Meeuwsen, and six state beauty finalists gave a preview to newsmen Tuesday of the show they will put on for U.S. ssrvicemen during a USO tour of overseas military bases. The girls performed an alluring song and dance number called "Come Rain Come Shine." They leave soon for a three-week tour of bases in Korea and Okinawa. READ THE WANT ADS! McAL'ESTER, Okla. (UPI) Warden Park Anderson said Tuesday inmates are wrecking the Oklahoma State Prison faster than it can be repaired. He received authorization to remove all 1,700 convicts from the state's largest penitentiary. The State Board of Corrections authorized the temporary evacuation of the state prison and took other steps to reduce the number of prisoners assigned to the facility in moves designed to prevent any recurrence of the weekend insurrection in which three inmates were killed. Anderson said the prisoners would be removed as soon as other institutions could be found to place them. The board authorized the removal of 1,300 prisoners and asked Gov. David Hall to reconsider parole applications for the other 400 inmates. Anderson said the evacuation was necessary to repair smashed locks in the prison cell I blocks destroyed during the 43 hour, 10 minute rebellion. The revolt caused $20 million worth of damage to the facility. "They are doing more damage in the nighttime than we can repair in the daytime," Anderson said. One crisis situation arose at the troubled prison Tuesday and 1,000 National Guardsmen with fixed bayonets were called upon to turn back 700 grumbling prisoners who wanted steak to eat and instead received meat loaf. Gov. Hall's press secretary Ed Hardy said the prisoners became "unruly" and turned toward the officers while they were moving from their cellblocks to the dining area. Hardy said the National Guard troops herded the malcontents into a corner of the prison yard where they "will remain for the time being." The prisoners demanded their first hot meal since the weekend rebellion should be "steak or nothing at all." The meal offered consisted of meatloaf, corn, hot gravy, green beans and bread. electorate voted for last November. Cox a Target If Nixon follows the advice of some of his aides, the counteroffensive will attack the motives of the Senate Investi gating Committee, the special Watergate prosecutor and the news media. One of tine chief targets will be the office of Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox, whose past associations with the Kennedys make him vulnerable to charges of political partisanship. Some White Housie officials have made no secret that they would like to see Cox resign. There was the fond hope among some aides close to the President that Cox would step down In protest at Nixon's decision not to furnish him access to tapes of Presidential conversations. Instead, Cox held a news conference alt which he challenged the legal basis for Nixon's decision and announced he was filing legal proceedings to obtain them. Bureaucracy Built The President was infuriated by news stories saying Cox was investigating the financial transaction by which Nixon acquired his California estate. And he was little mollified by a statement from Cox's office denying that this was the case. Cox has already built a sizbnle bureacuracy -H »ome 33 lawyers and 29 support personnel at last count^-and so far has failed to return any indfctoneiite in the area he was assigned to investigate. Several of his lawyers worked in the Justice Department during the Kennedy Administration and already publications favorable to the President are accusing him of Panging far afield from his mandate, neglecting his legitimate function in order to dig up political dirt. Another feature of the coming counteroffensive was saiild to be ah attack on the news media for displaying a double stand- and in condemning the theft of documents from the Democratic National Committee but awarding journalistic prizes for publication of stolen Pentagon documents. Klein Makes Contacts The idea the President would like to leave in everybody's mind is that while he is not without fault in /the Watergate affair, the scandal cannot cause the abandoning of the New Revolution he has launched. Herbert G. Klein, an old and valued Nixon associate who recently resigned as Director of Communications for the Nixon administration, is quietly calling on some of the contacts he made with editors and opinion- makers during his White House years to push this line.
