(AP Wirephoto) Democratic Landslide Said Likely In Governor's Races WASHINGTON (AP) -Democrats appear headed for a landslide domination of the nation's governorships in next month's eleclions and a firm footing in the grassroots for the 197G presidential year. An Associated Press survey in the.35 stales elecling governors Ibis fall indicates Democrats will gain a net increase of three to seven governorships. The survey shows Democrals leading in 20 slates with election just'over two weeks away. Added to Ihe ; nine Democratic Incumbents not up for election this year, this would mean 38 Democralic governors -- one , short of the record number · they held in 1936. Republicans are considered ahead in six states, which would give Ihcm al least 12 'governors. Just four years ago they held 32. E v e n more significant: Democrats are heavily favored to capture the two top prizes -California, in GOP hands since 11)66, and New York, Republican since 1958. KEY STATES Next year there are likely to be Democratic governors in ". each of the six most populous 'states -- including Pennsylvania, Texas and Ohio, which they are favored to retain, and Illinois, which nas no gubernatorial election this year. The sevenlh largest state, Michigan, has a Republican governor who has Ihe i n - cumbent's edge. But the race is rated close to a lossup. Democrats already control the No. 8 state. New Jersey, which does not elect a governor this year, and No. 9, Florida, where incumbent Reubin Askew is a heavy favorite for a new term. In the next largest slate, Massachusetts Gov. Francis W Sargenl is trailing in the polls. While the Republicans have controlled Congress only twice since the Great Depression, the governorships have changed hands in some reflection of the - mood of the country. There has also been a Irene .of a party moving to power . .the states prior to successfu bids for the White House. : In 1958 the Democrats woi . seven governorships to run their control lo 35 and give lln . party stron'g rools for John F Kennedy's presidenlial victor in I960. Similarly, the Republican made gains in 1566 and took a 26-24 edge in 1967 as thej moved toward Richard Nixon'; 1968 election as President. COMING BACK The Democrals have been coming back since 1970 wher they took a 29-21 stale housi edge. They have been adding I it steadily since then. The glamour races this yea are in California and Ncv York, because Ibey are bi. slates and because they hav .been Republican stronghold . for so long. Ronald Reagan, governor California for eight years, is re tiring next year. Edmund G. Brown Jr.. 36- ear-old California secretary of tale and son of the last Demo- ratic 'governor,. is the Demo? ralic nominee and has a lead Ihe polls of ahpul 15 per ccnl ver Houston Flo'urnoy, now Ihe 'OP slate controller. Nelson Rockefeller, govti'^r f New York for so long it look- d like a Republican preserve, c-signcd last year. Now his cutenant governor of 15 years, lalcplm Wilson, is running for lection in his own right. He's railing far behind Rep. Hugh arey, who won the Democrate nomination in a hot primary ver the favorite of the party stablishmcnt. Early pells showed Carey head by 20 points or more, and ndications are that the lead is .olding. The Republicans see Iheir lest chance for turnovers in tlaska, South Carolina and pos- ibly Maine.

(AP) -- nmates took a guard hostage and burned the maximum-security section of. the state prison to the ground before being quelled here Saturday, Corrections Director Russell Lash said. Lash said the hostage, who lie did not identify, was freec unharmed and the disturbance quelled without injuries to any inmates. "An inmate, shortly after 10 a.m., took a guard hostage using a screwdriver as a weap on," said Roy Sprinkle, acting warden, "then disarmed the iuarrt, released the inmate? confined there--in the max imum-security unit known ai the rock--from their cells and sel the rock on fire." Sprinkle said the building "appears to be destroyed." Sprinkle said Ihere were 43 inmates confined to the rock a the lime of Ihe disturbance bu that he wasn't sure how man; were actually involved in th affair. "One inmate took a guarc hostage, released the olher in mates," he said. "I don't how many were involved in seltini it (the rock) on fire. I don' have the delails right now." Sprinkle said be didn't knov how the hoslage was freed, bit Ed Hardy,' Gov. David Hall' press secretary, said the pris oil's new riot squad "went and brought him out." Sprinkle said the guard's gun believed to be a .38 caliber re volver, was recovered. He said the occupants of th rock will "be confined imme (liately to the east cellhouse."

India (AP) - ccrelary of State Henry A. issinger's upcoming six-day wing through the Indian sub- pntinent brings him to a re- ion where he is respected bul ri loved. Prime Minister Indira Gandhi f India, with whom he will ave his main talks, is unlikely o plant nny Middle East-style :isses on his cheeks. Indians till recall the "American till" igainsl India in the 1971 war vilh Pakistan. The Ocl. 27-Nov. 1 stay in- iludes India, Bangladesh and 'akistan. But the main focus is n India, where Kissinger will pend three days trying to seal he end of estrangement from Mrs. Gandhi and her people. With each of the three sub- onlmcnl countries pulling him n its own direction, Kissinger vill need all his diplomatic skill '.o prevent any warming with ndia from chilling U.S. friend- ihip with Pakistan. Prime Minister Zulfikar All 3hutlo of Pakistan is expected o argue forcefully for more American weapons, as be has n the past, maintaining lhat he 1965 U.S. arms embargo on he^ subcontinent works [o In iia's advantage because of its Soviet-aided armaments in dustry. STAND FIRM Mrs. Gandhi and her aides, sn the other hand, will reiterate :hcir stand (hat any American arming of Pakistan will preven improvement in relations be twcen Washington and Nev Delhi. . . . The diplomatic guess here i: that Kissinger will make no :ommilmenl on arms during lis visit and that he will just islen lo bolh sides. In Dacca, Bangladesh, the lemands on- Kissinger will be iiffcrcnt: Prime Minister Muji- Rahman will likely press or ,is much American food aid as he can get. Kissinger is expeclcd lo use lis trip to announce new food assistance in the region, including . India, bul American diplomats say the amounts will not be substantial. Kissinger faces his most delicate task In New Delhi, where authoritative sources say that despite the desire lo slrenglhen lies wilh Mrs. Gandhi, he will express · strong U.S. over India's nuclear concern cap'abi- Some Western diplomats here aclieve the secretary was not strong enough in his initial response to India's underground nuclear blast last May 18, when Washington confined its public comment to a brief, mild statement that it opposed nuclear proliferation and linguish between did not military peaceful nuclear explosions. PEACEFUL BLAST India insists the blast v only for peaceful purposes, anc Mrs. Gandhi repeatedly has vowed that India will not manu facturc nuclear weapons. Encr gy Minister K.C. Pant said lasi week the Indian govcrnmen will conduct still more nucleai teats to enable the country's nu clear scientists to contimn their research into peacefu uses of atomic energy. . U.S. Ambassador Daniel P M o y n i h a n q u e s t i o n e c Irs. Gandhi's intentions in a onfidenfial cable last month to issinger thai was leaked to he press. Moynihan predicted he prime minisler will "pro- lo develop nuclear weapons and a missile delivery sys- cin, preaching nonviolence all ,hc way." Kissinger himself has demonstrated growing concern since he Indian blast about nuclear explosions described as peace- "ul. This concern was apparent when he announced al his Oct. 7 news conference thai ncgolia- :ioris will slart in Moscow to try to broaden an underground weapons lest agreement lo include peaceful nuclear blasls. WANTS TREATY Ideally, the United States would like India lo sign Ihe 1968 nuclear nonprolifcralion Ireaty, which in essence tried lo re slrict nuclear weaponary lo those who already had it. India has consistently op- treaty because it ban discriminates posed the feels the against non-nuclear "powers. Kissinger, needs some nevertheless, assurance from Mrs. Gandhi on her nuclear intentions, not only to calm India's neighbors,, mainly Paki' slan, but to diffuse mounting U.S. congressional criticism o her government for spending money on developing a nuclear capability. That criticism has contrib uted to efforts by some con gressmen lo slash 525 million from a proposed $75 million U.S. aid package lo India. Actually, Mrs. Gandhi has been in no apparent hurry lo see the resumption of U.S. aid As Judge, Lawyers Butt Heads Cover-Up Trial Shows Some Light Moments WASHINGTON (AP) - In the week since the jury in the Watergate cover-up trial was empaneled, the-judge and lawyers in the case are butting heads, sometimes in anger, but frequently in jest. While no one loses sight of the importance and potential personal tragedies of the trial's outcome, there are often light moments. John J. Wilson, defendant H.R. Haldeman's principal lawyer, worked just around the corner from U.S. District Judge John J. Sirica when both men were beginning their legal careers as assistant 'U.S. attorneys more than 40 years ago. In the frequent exchanges between Wilson and Sirica, Ihere is an ; undercurrent of two men ho have known each other ill for decades.

When Wilson was interrupted y another lawyer, Sirica said, Let's let Professor Wilson peak." The "professor" label has tuck and Sirica often uses it to ddress Wilson' when the jury is ut of the room. NOT RELUCTANT Wilson, a well-known and sue essful veteran of imporlanl nd famous courtroom , battles Washington, has no reluc ance to declare publicly his wn opinion of himself as awyer. "If I give a little hint thai hink I know a lot about ledera aw," Wilson told Sirica, "it's eliberately done." On Friday, Wilson com lained of changes matte by the rosecutqrs in plans for allow ng the jury to read transcripl f a White House lape. Sirics colded Wilson, saying if "yoi re on the job," the change vould not have escaped Wil on's notice. "Your Honor," respondec Vilson, rising to his leet, "I re ent the implication lhat I'rr not on the job as much as yoi ire." Sirica: "Well, I think I am 01 he job better than you are." Hearing laughter from th :ourlroom, Sirica took note o lis long association with Wilso ind proceeded to introduce ian Francisco lawyer, Goldstein, whom Sirica arbs. When the judge apparently aught Asst. Special Prosecutor 'ames F. Neat making a slight 3gal error in his examination f John W. Dean III, Hundley vas on his feet saying of Neal: "His halo is tilting, Judge." While defense lawyers are ometimes Ihe source of humor the courtroom, prosecutor eal is all business. Neal, the chief prosecutor in ie government's case against 'eamsters Union Chief James foffa, often cuts off defense awyers before their objections o his tactics have been ex- ilaiued. Over and over, Sirica re;ponds saying: "You lawyers, f you have something to say, ay it to me and not one anoth- T." The square-jawed aggressive ind outspoken Neal sometimes accuses defense lawyers of un "air strategies that would' derail :he' prosecution's case. When objections came up :hat parts of some White House tapes had no bearing on Hie cover-up case and so should be edited out, Neal said flatly to on. Asking a Irvin said ilso worked as an assistant U.S. attorney with him and Wil- Goldstein to sfand up is if he were in the audience of a television. variety show, Si- ica said, "We had a lot of [ood times in those old days."

Weinberger said 2.5 per cen of the participants in Arkansas aid program were found to bi ineligible. Of those person; qualified for the Arkansas pro gram, HEW said 8 per cen were overpaid. About 6.7 pe cent of those eligible for the Ar kansas program were found ti be underpaid.
