Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph (Newspaper) - January 17, 1972, Colorado Springs, Colorado Author Bares Hughes Loan to Nixon’s Brother NEW YORK (AP) - Clifford Irving, author of a purported autobiography of Howard Hughes, quotes the billionaire recluse as saying that former Secretary of Defense Clark Clifford asked him for a $205,000 loan fur Richard M. Nixon s brother. Clifford, who served in the Johnson administration, denied any connection with the deal. “It is a complete fabrication, he said when contacted Sunday at his Washington home. “There is not one iota of truth in that statement. It had to be made up out of whole cloth." Noah Detrich, a former Hughes aide, said in California that the loan, which was reported in 1960, was made but that company lawyer handled it and Clifford had no knowledge of it. Irving declined in a television interview Sunday to say what Hughes got in return for the 1956 loan. But he said the “quid pro quo” is described in his soon-to-be published book which he claims to have put together out of a series of interviews with Hughes. Thp Day tors (Ohio) Journal Herald today quoted San Francisco attorney Melvin Bel-lias saying that the loan was a payoff for Richard Nixon’s supposed effort to obtain the St. Louis-to-New Orleans route and other favors for Trans World Airlines, then owned by Hughes. The loan figured in Nixon’s unsuccessful 1960 presidential campaign. Both Nixon and his brcthcr, Donald, have denied that Hughes obtained any favors as a result of the loan. Irving's book has been a subject of controversy since it was announced on Dec. 7. The voice of a man claiming to be Hug hes said in a recent long-distance telephone news conference that he did not know Irving and denounced the book as a hoax. Newsmen at the conference said thev were convinced that the voice was that of Hughes. Irving says it was not Hughes* voice because the man had too many memory lapses and talked longer than Hughes can without a break. A Nevada publishing firm, which claims it has exclusive rights to Hughes’ autobiography, has filed suit to bar publication of Irving's book by McGraw-Hill Publishing Co. and    serialization in Life magazine. A hearing in the case is set for Wednesday. Irving talked about the loan during an interview with Mike Wallace on the CBS television “60 Minutes” program. The late columnist Drew Pearson first reported the loan shortly before the 1960 election. Pearson said Hughes made the unsecured loan to Donald Nixon in 1956, while Richard Nixon was vice president, and after ward Hughes’ problems with various governmental agencies were eased. The Pearson story was termed a “smear” by Nixon’s (Turn to Page aa, Column 1) “The greatest hindrance to the progress of this country is that there are so many people looking around for some system that will give them more than they deserve”    —Columns The Region's Leading News Source COLORADO SPRINGS GAZ TODAY’S I P.M. STOCKS No. 32,180—100th Year Death Penalty In NJ. Rules Unconstitutional TRENTON. N J. (UPI) -The New Jersey Supreme Court ruled today that the law providing for the death penalty hi the state is unconstitutional. The ruling lifted the threat of execution for the 20 men now on the state’s death row. The court dad not rule that capital punishment in itself was now before tire U S. Supreme Court —but only that the death penalty statute in New Jersey deprived defendants of constitutional rights. The 6 1 dec ision by the court reversed one of its own rulings that upheld the capital punishment law in 1968. That decision was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court and sent back to the state’s highest court. | The New Jersey law provided for the death penalty only when ^defendant was convicted b\ jury trial. If a defendant {barged with a capital offense pleaded guilty, the maximum penalty was life imprisonment When the 1968 case went to court ruled that the New Jersey defendant’s right to a jury trial The U.S. court pointed out that a defendant might be forced to pleading guilty to have his life spared. The ruling today noted that both the New Jersey attorney, general and several county prosecutors agreed that the -death sentence clause should be struck from the law But the provision for a life imprison-; ment sentence under guilty pleas was upheld.

Negotiation sessions broke off but the union said they would be resumed later. The first orders to resume picketing came at San Francisco and Los Angeles-Long Beach harbors after an 8 a.m. (PST) deadline expired. Harry Bridges, president of the International Longshoremen’s and Warehousemen's Un ion, emerged from bargaining sessions that had run through the night to announce: “The strike officially resumed at 8 a rn. this morning, although we exerted all efforts we could at this time to try to settle it.” Bridges said the talks had been broken off but would be resumed later. He did not say when that might be. Pickets appeared almost simultaneously shortly after 8 a rn. at piers on the San Francisco waterfront after the chief dispatcher at ILWU Local IO told some 300 men in a hiring hall to resume picketing “and tie it up.” About the time, John Pandora, head of the big 2,800-member ILWU local in Los Angeles and Long Beach was saying: “As far as we’re concerned, the strike is on. We’re dispatching pickets now.” The Nixon administration has warned it would ask Congress to intervene and direct a settlement (rf any renewal of the walkout that shut ports for IOO days last year.
