SISTERS SHARE BIZARRE ILLNESS LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Her sister collapsed and died while jogging earlier this inonlh, but 20-year-old Vicki Tenfold had no idea that she, too. may have suffered from a rare genetic disease that could result in death during even light cx- ·cise. Vicki began her early morning college exercise class as usual Thursday with some warmups. But suddenly she pitched forward into the arms of a fellow student and died almost instantly. Vicki and her 18-year-old sister, Janet, apparently died of a one-ln-a-million heart condition that strikes members of the same family, according to pathologist Karl Kirschner. Kirschner examined Janel after her dcatli Oct. 7 at Cal- fiornia Slate Polytechnic University at San Luis Obispo. He said that under a microscope "her heart almost looked like that of a little old man that has been exposed to an awful lot ol stress over the years," Although the Los Angeles County coronor has not yet officially determined the cause of Vicki's death, Kirschner said in an interview Thursday that he belived the sisters were victims of a disease called obstructive cardiomyopalhy. Undetectable In normal phys ical exams, the disorder cause! a progressive scarring of hearl muscles. Then, at some critica point, even light exercise can result in sudden heart failure said Kirschner.

In its transcripts of subpoenaed tapes last April, the Nixon White House released only a small portion of the 35-minule conversation dealing solely \yith the activities of political prankster Donald H. Segretti and the break-in at the office of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist. The recording was one of 64 figuring in the Supreme Court's decision forcing Nixon to release the tapes for the cover-up trial. The ruling was one of the listoric events that contributed o his resignation. After receiving word from Miller about Nixon's possible appearance, Sirica postponed for three weeks a decision on whether the former President should be forced to testify at the trial. The government, which also subpoenaed Nixon, told Sirica it would not insist on the former President's testimony in the prosecution case. Since the defense testimony is not expected to begin for more than a month, that gave the court time to make a decision.
