The would-be presidential assassin, a suspected member of an anti-government youth group, was wounded by security guards and taken into custody. Mrs. Park, 49, admired by many Korean women as a model of true national beauty, was struck in the head by a bullet intended for her husband. The gunman ran screaming down the aisle in the crowded (Photos on Picture Page) SA^A^A/VWSA^AAA/WVWSAAAAiN theater where Park was delivering a speech commemorating Korea’s liberation from Japan in World war II. Before the eyes of the 2,500 persons in the audience and untold thousands watching on television, the gunman opened fire at the podium. Ducked Park ducked behind the lectern and moments later his wife slumped to the floor, mortally wounded. Another bullet struck a 17-year-old high school girl seated in the third row. Mrs. Park died in Seoul Na-1 tional University hospital six hours after unsuccesful surgery to save her life. The school girl, Chang Dong Hwa, was killed instantly. After Mrs. Park and the girl were carried bleeding from the auditorium and the wounded gunman was removed. Park said: “I will resume my statement.’’ He talked for five minutes, then the girls’ choir sang for a few minutes. The president received a standing ovation as he left the theater for the university hospital to be with his wife. Park and the couple's three children were at Mrs. Park’s bedside when she died, a government spokesman said. Her body was then taken to the Blue House, the presidential mansion, one hour later. From Japan Korean presidential spokesman Sang Jim Kim said the assassin carried a Japanese passport. but in Tokyo Foreign Minister Toshio Kimura said the assailant was a Korean residing in Japan. Japanese police identified the suspect as Mun Se Kwang, 22, of Osaka, Japan, and said he was a member of an anti-Park (Continued: Page 3, Col. 3.)

(AP) -President Ford said Thursday that ‘zero growth” environmental policies fly in the face of human nature and must be rejected in favor of reasonable compromises. The President said last winter’s energy crisis demonstrated that the nation must mine and use more coal, drill for more oil on the ocean’s continental shelf, develop oil shale resources and speed construction of nuclear power plants. ‘‘There are some well-meaning people who see the environmental issue as an ‘either, or’ proposition,” Ford said in a statement read at the F^xpo 74 world fair by Interior Secretary1 Morton. ‘‘They would make the environment the overriding consideration in all our activities, regardless of the consequences, re- j gardless of the sound, middle-ground alternatives that might be worked out.” F’ord said although environmentalists argue for zeros growth as the only course for world resource salvation, their! goal was impossible because (“man isn’t built to vegetate or I stagnate — we like to progress, ive have ideas, we have hopes land dreams of a better world.

Cover-Up Subpoena Gazette Lea.net] Wires WASHINGTON - Former President Nixon was subpoenaed Thursday to appear as a witness for John Ehrlichman in the Watergate cover-up trial next month. The subpoena was filed in U. S. district court by Ehrlichman’s lawyer, Andrew Hall. It said: ‘‘You are commanded to appear in U. S. district court for the District of Columbia ... on the 9th day of September, 1974. at 9:30 a.m. to testify on behalf of John Ehrlichman ... and to remain until called.” 'lo San Clemente The subpoena was addressed to Nixon at the ‘‘presidential compound, San Clemente, Calif.” where the former President moved after resigning his office last Friday. Ehrlichman, formerly domestic counsel to Nixon, had been one of the former President’s closest advisers. There was no indication in the filing at district court that thc .subpoena actually had been served. Any party in a lawsuit may issue subpoenas for witnesses without prior court approval. However the recipient may ask the court to dismiss a subpoena later. One of Six Ehrlichman is one of six de- iendanls scheduled %.% go on trial Sept. 9 on charges of obstructing justice by attempting to thwart the investigation of the Watergate breakin at the Democratic party’s national headquarters in 1972. Nixon was named an unindicted coconspirator in the case. Tile other defendants are former White House chief of staff H. R. Haldeman; former Attorney General Mitchell; former Haldeman aide Gordon Strachan, former Nixon re-election committee aide and one-; time Assistant Attorney General Robert Mardian; and Kenneth Wells Parkinson, a re-election * committee lawyer. Earlier Subpoena Ehrlichman had attempted to (subpoena Nixon while he was still Presider*. That was in connection with California state charges against F3hrlichman, most of which have since been dismissed, growing out of the breakin at the office of Daniel Ellsberg’s psychiatrist, Dr. Lewis Fielding of Beverly Hills. A California judge issued a subpoena in that case but before the Washington, D. C., superior court could act on it, the issue was made moot by dismissal of the charges. Ehrlichman was convicted July 12 in U. S. district court on one count of conspiring to violate F'ielding’s civil rights and two counts of lying to a Watergate grand jury. He was sentenced to serve 20 months to 5 years in prison, but is free while appealing the sentence. Ehrlichman’s action Thursday was the first legal step taken against Nixon since he resigned last week. The subpoena came as special (Watergate prosecutor Leon Ja-worski was reported to be (studying the possibility of taking legal action against the former President.
