Legislators' pay boosts JL to be HARRISBURG- (AP) A healthy salary increase for Pennsylvania legislators has been cleared by a federal panel considering "an appeal from a Pay Board ruling against the hike, say legislative sources. The inrease, in the form of a expense account, was recommended by a three-mem- ber panel operating under the Cost of Living Council, the sources disclosed Friday. And it is likely the boost will actual- ly amount to for each state legislator. The panel's recommendation followed an appeal of the Pay Board's February decision to knock down the addition of an annual expqnse account for each legislator. The defunct Pay Board, since replaced by the Cost of Living Council, said the expense ac- counts exceeded 5.5 per cent federal guidelines for pay hikes. In January, the Com- monwealth Compensation Com- mission increased the ex- pense account figure to and if the Cost of Living Coun- cil approves the panel's recom- mendation, it is expected the legislators will have little trouble getting the full raise. The Pay Board decision was appealed by state legislative leaders to the council, and the appeal was heard Thursday by the three-member panel. Legislative sources said the council is expected to act on the recommendation Monday. EDDYSTONE A Sun Oil tank truck overturned at the temporary end of Interstate 95 about 10 a.m.- today and the entire intersection of 1-95, Chester Pike and Saville Avenue was engulfed in flames. One Eddystone policeman was injured slightly. Eyewitnesses the truck driver escaped without injury. Residents of nearby homes and businesses on Chester Pike also were believed to have escaped without injury. A reporter at the scene described it as a "blockwide fireball." Flames were shooting at least 100 feet in the air with explosions occurring and smoke billowing into the sky. Several buildings on the southeast corner of the intersection were on fire. Utility wires overhead were melting, shutting off traffic lights in the area. Traffic on 1-95 was backed up for a great distance. "All the row houses on Chester Pike near Saville Avenue are on said Clifford Harrower, bartender at Don's Bar, 1331 Chester Pike, Eddystone, about 200 yards from the fire. "All the electric wires are down on the pike and burned he said. "We'll have to get out of here. The fire's creeping up this way. "The big gasoline truck ran into big pole at corner of pike and Saville and turned over and he said. "It sounded like an earthquake. It shook the place." At least 10 fire trucks and ambulances were there and the bartender told the Daily Times at a.m. while on the phone, "I have to close up now and get out." WASHINGTON (AP) Quot- ing an associate of former Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell, the Washington Post said today that Mitchell testified he ap- proved payments from Presi- dent Nixon's re-election cam- paign funds to the seven Water- gate conspirators after the June 17 arrests at Democratic headquarters. But Mitchell reportedly main- tained under oath, the Post said, that the money was in- tended to pay their legal not to buy their silence. He did not mention amounts of money, the Post said. Mitchell testified for about three hours Friday, before the federal grand jury investigating the Watergate case. Afterwards. he told newsmen he never han- dled any payoff money to buy silence from the defendants. He also said that while discussions about bugging Democrats were held in his presence, "no such operations were ever approved by me at an time, under any circumstances." 'He was not available for comment on the'Post story. The associate told the Post that Mitchell testified he be- lieves Jeb Stuart Magruder, the deputy presidential campaign director, went over Mitchell's head to unnamed officials ut the White House to obtain ap- proval for the Watergate bug- ging. Mitchell served as Nix- on's campaign manager until two weeks after the Watergate break-in. Magruder has been quoted as saying that Mitchell and White House counsel John W. Dean 3rd approved of and helped plan the Watergate operation spear- headed by G. Gordon Liddy. Mitchell was followed on the grand jury stand by Dean. Dean declared on Thursday that the will not allow himself to become a scapegoat in the Watergate case. Asked to com- ment on what Dean would tell the jury, his attorney, Robert McCandliss, said: "Mr. Dean has made his statement and will stand on it." The New York Times quoted sources close to the Watergate case today as saying that Dean supervised payment of more than in bills to the seven defendants and their law- yers after the June bugging. The story said the payments were to buy their silence and the money came from the re- election committee. McCandb'ss was quoted as denying the sto- ry- Mitchell is the highest former or present Nixon administration official called before the grand- jury. After his appearance, newsmen asked: "Did you swear under oath before the grand jury you had no prior knowledge of the bugging in- "I have done that twice and I did he replied. "I testi- fied fully, freely and openly and that's about the story." Mitchell had testified briefly before the grand jury last fall. He had also given a deposition in a civil suit in which he de- nied prior knowledge of any discussions about surveillance To go to of the Democratic National Committee, a statement he ap- peared to contradict Friday. Magruder also has been quoted as saying that Mitchell and Dean arranged paj'offs to buy silencer from the men ac- cused of the conspiracy. Mit- chell said he personally han- dled no payoff money and hasn't met any defendants or their lawyers since the breakin. A newsman pressed Mitchell on the' payoff question. "Did you have any connection with the payment of the he asked. "I answered that ques- tion fully and Mit- chell said. Mitchell's lawyer, William G. Hundley, predicted the former chief U.S. law enforcement cer would be obsolved.

Every child knows that's more fun than riding on a tricycle. SACRAMENTO, Calif. (UPI) Bending down with an Easter basket full of candy in one hand and a grimy trash can in the other, Ray Valine, a 26-year-old Sacramento County garbageman, said to the small boy: "For real. I'm the Easter bunny." This past week to the joy of hundreds of neighborhood chil- dren, Valine, a refuse collector for nearly three years, has been prancing between the houses on his route attired in a pink and white Easter bunny costume. "It's good relations with my said Valine, who the week before Christmas wore a Santa.Glaus suit while garbage. "The kids like it, the mommies like he said Friday between hoisting heavy cans of garbage into the big white refuse truck and passing out candy Easter eggs to hordes of youngsters. "They all think I'm Valine said pointing to his two fellow workers. "Maybe I am. But for sure it makes my work a lot easier to come to each morning. They (the persons on his route) like me.
