WILLIAM HTJNGATE .. .in Twain tradition In Hearing Gloom Hungate Bright Spot rules, held him in contempt. Fair served 46 days in jail after an earlier contempt finding by Older and was released pending appeal. Older was the judge in the Superior Court trial of Manson and three women co-defendants convicted of first degree murder in the bloody slayings of actress Sharon Tate and several others. The judge, who had placed six lawyers in tlie case under a gag order, asserted Monday as he bad before that the journalist "acted with reckless disregard" for the defendants rights .with his : "lurid, sensa- tion'al story. . . ." Older said B'arr bad "held himself above the'law" with his silence. Again Farr replied, out of court, that the judge had "conveniently ignored" the fact that the aMnson jury had .been sequestered throughout-kept away from ; newspapers, radio and television and even transported from court to hotel in a bus WASHINGTON (AP) -- Guns and call girls have-been smuggled out of the country to fugitive financier Robert L. Vesco and his associates in Costa Rica, according to information obtained by government investigators. Sources said the weapons and prostitutes were flown to Costa Rica on a private Lear jet owned by Vesco associate Thomas P. Richardson, the head of a Los Angeles brokerage firm and. a self-described close personal friend of Vesco. The weapons, described as "enough guns for a small army," reportedly were used to arm Vesco's bodyguards, one source : said Monday. According to the sources, President Nixon's nephew, Donald F. Nixon Jr., an employe of Vesco since 1971, also is be- ieved to be in Costa Rica with Vesco. Vesco fled the country after b e i n g indicted on charges stemming from a secret $200,000 contribution he made to Nixon's re-election campaign in an alleged attempt to influence an investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission. . Evidance of the smuggling operation could be used to extradite Vesco frof his hideaway, the sources said. The U.S Customs Services has acknowledged it is investigating possible violations by Vesco associates of the so-called neutrality act, which bans illegal exportation of arms and ammunition to other countries; The call girls reportedly flown to Costa Rica were procured by a Los Angeles madam who uses the name Betty Alexander, according to one source. .Police sources in Los Angeles confirmed federal law enforcement a'gents are searching for Miss Alexander. During hearings last week by the. Senate Permanent Investigations subcommittee, Richardson denied knowledge, of his plane's whereabouts, sayin ' ' WASHINGTON (AP) - A renewed U.S. diplomatic effort for additional progress in Middle East peace negotiations is opening with a meeting between Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger and Israeli *or- eign Minister Yigal Allon. Today's afternoon session will be the first of a series Kissinger expects to hold with key Israeli and Arab leaders over the next month. The idea is to define the issues as seen by all sides to work out a formula to carry Israel and the Arabs beyond the current cease-fire and limited troop disengagement agreements.

Last week, during the committee's impeachment debate, Hungate sunnorted the argument that inferences or conclusions can be drawn from certain facts. He told the comittee that if he brought an elephant into the meeting hoom, some committee members might argue that it was merely a mouse with a glandular condition. · But, Hungate continued, they couldn't say the same thing if he brought in 12 elephants. The moral of the story was that an accumulation of evidence allows a person to draw some inferences.' ;.\ Hungate managed the proposed impeachment article considered by the "committee on Monday. His easy-going manner contrasts with the serious, all-business approach of Rep. Paul Sarbanes,- D-Md.; who managed the first impeachment article last week. "Your own sense of responsibility need not destroy your sense o f . humor," says Hungate. "In my own case, I have always felt it is better to have a sense o f - h u m o r than no.sense at all."

Impeachment Staff Balks At Charges WASHINGTON (AP) - The impeachment inquiry staff has suggested that President Nixon's impoundment of funds' appropriated by Conress may not be an impeachable offense, even though courts have ruled some impoundments were ille- r ^ ig possible disengagement with Jordan, a further troop separation between Israel and Egypt, the opening of the Geneva peace conference, the status of Palestinian Arabs and the American aid program to the Jewish state. ' U.S. officials say Kissinger will not press any specific ideas on what he feels should happen but will urge Allon to examine all possibilities with the aim of establishing optimum flexibility. For example, the United States wants Israel to reconsider its previous refusals to open disengagement talks with Jordan before a second stage of negotiations is held with Egypt on further troop separations. U.S. officials said Kissinger is sympathetic to the domestic political problems facing Premier Yitzhak Rabin's government because of pressure by orthodox Jews, not to give up any of the West Bank of the Jordan River. Rabin's government, which holds nower by a single vote, has tried to put off the Jordanian disengagement question by ADVERTISEMENT -Do This If FALSE TEETH Drop At The Wrong Time Afraid false teeth will drop at th« wrong time?
