By TERRANCE W. McGARRY LONG BEACH, Calif. CUPI) Former President Richard M. Nixon underwent "urgent surgery" today to halt the spread of potentially fatal blood clots from his diseased left leg to his heart and'lungs. A spokesman for Long Beach Memorial Hospital said at a.m. PST a.m. EST) that the operation, which had been scheduled to last about one fibur, had been completed. The chief of the three-man surgical team, Dr. Eldon B. Hickman, was scheduled to meet with newsmen but there was no indication when that would be. A hospital spokesman said Hickman would not leave Nixon's side until it was safe to do so. The former President's per- sonal physician, Dr. John Lungren, ordered the surgery late Monday when new tests indicated Nixon's life was in danger from the spread of clots. Lungren warned that because Nixon's blood had been chemi- cally thinned tor more than a month to prevent clotting, "There is somewhat more risk than normal in this type of surgery." Nixon was wheeled into the operating theater about a.m. PST a.m. EST) for the surgery which was to get underway at a.m. A new test discovered that in addition id the blood clots blocking circulation in Nixon's left leg, there is "a large clot extending into the left external iliac vein, the vein that connects the femoral vein in the thigh to the inferior vena a hospital spokesman said. The new clot was located in Nixon's left hip, above those discovered previously and clos- er to the vena cava, which leads directly to the heart. A blood clot that broke loose' and floated into Nixon's heart would kill him if it blocked circulation there. "The hew clot threatened to become a pulmonary embolus, and thus endanger Mr. Nixon's Lungren said. "Based on this concern the doctors agreed that urgent surgery should be scheduled at a.m. Tuesday he said. A surgical team headed by Dr. Eldon B. Hickman "will place a clip around the left iliac vein to prevent the clot from traveling beyond this point and becoming a pulmonary em- Lungren sa id. A potentially fatal "pulmo- nary embolus" would result if the clot broke loose, drifted higher in Nixon's body and blocked circulation to his lungs. A small clot found its way to Nixon's right lung in August, but blocked off only a dime- sized area of lung tissue and responded to drug treatment. Nixon "agreed to take the advice for then spoke by telephone with his wife, Pat, and daughters Trie i a Cox and Julie Eisenhower, the hospital spokesman said.

(UP1) State Rep. Larry Hopkins, R- Lexington, said Monday he would appeal last Thursday's decision which declared Gov. Wendell Ford's spending of surplus funds to be con- stitutional. Hopkins, who brought the suit with Albert Christen, state finance commissioner under former Gov. Louie Nunn, said he "was not convinced that my position of maintaing that the (budget) act is uncon- stitutional is incorrect." "The adverse ruling of the Franklin Circuit Court has not persuaded me that any one man should individually control million taypayers dollars, nor have I been con- vinced that my position of maintaining that the act is unconstitutional is said Hopkins. Hopkins said he and Christen had discussed the appeal possibilities, and they had concluded that not to appeal would be to "abbrogate our responsibility." State officials estimate that million is surplus funds will have accumulated by the end of this fiscal year. State Finance commissioner James King has indicated that Gov. Ford could not allocate any more of the funds beyond the million already committed, before the Nov. 5 election. The decision, by Franklin Circuit Judges Squire Williams and Henry Meigs, ruled that the surplus funds spending authority was not an abuse of power, and not an un- constitutional delegation of authority from the 1974 General Assembly. Hopkins disagreed with that ruling. "It is not possible for governors, Democrat or Republican, to circumvent completely the legislative branch of government in the allocation of public said Hopkins. A delay in further allocation of the remaining surplus funds Is not tied to the appeal, Finance Commissioner King said last week when the ruling was made In a memorandum from the Franklin circuit Continued on Page 2 By WESLEY G. PIPPERT ter spy E. Howard Hunt Jr. testified in the Watergate conspiracy trial Monday that he lied 12 times to the Watergate grand jury. He said he had decided to tell the truth because others involved "were not worthy of my ...loyalty." It was one of the most dramatic moments in the trial, which entered its fifth week Monday. Assistant Watergate Israeli Troops Kill 3 Arab Guerrillas TEL AVIV (UPI) Israeli troops today shot and killed three Arab guerrillas who crossed the border from Leba- non into the northern frontier, the military command said. The bitter gunbattle came only hours after Israeli leaders rejected an Arab summit decision naming the guerrilla Palestine Liberation Organiza- tion as the sole representatives of the Palestinian people. Israeli leaders, spurning the PLO as a negotiating partner in the Mideast crisis, vowed the only place they would meet the guerrilla band was on the battlefield. The early morning slaying of the terrorists took place about two miles south of a collective settlement near Israel's north- ern lip, military sources said. The army said the guerrillas crossed the frontier during the night. No Israeli soldiers were wounded in the gunfight, the first on the northern frontier since Oct. 1. The clash came as Israel voiced its continued determina- tion to oppose the creation of a Palestinian state on the oc- cupied West Bank of Jordan. Former Prime Minister Golda Meir has said creation of a Palestinian state on the West Bank "would create a knife in the heart" of Israel. Israeli newspapers said the decision by the Arabs cast Continued on Page 2 Prosecutor Richard Ben-Ven- iste led Hunt through the planning, execution and cover- up of the Watergate bugging. Hunt told simply of the death of his wife Dorothy, also an alleged co-conspirator in the Watergate cover-up. She was killed Dec. 8, 1972, in a jet crash near Chicago's Midway Airport. Twelve times Ben-Veniste read portions of Hunt's grand jury testimony in early 1973, and 12 times Hunt admitted in one word that his testimony had been "false" or "evasive." "Did there come a time you decided to tell the Ben- Veniste asked. "While I was in prison. I realized that due to the increasing furor over Water- gate the White House could do nothing for me.

I immediately began to reconstruct my life. I tried to put as much of this unpleasant- ness in the far reaches of my mind as I could.
