Israeli soldiers meanwhile began efforts to seal the 50-mile border with Lebanon and stop guerilla attacks, Israeli Chief of Staff LL Gen. Mordechai Our said troops were taking positions to “seal the frontier hermetically.” Israel called on Lebanon to shut off the border to guerillas. Letter to U. N. WASHINGTON (AP) -Charles Colson has told house judiciary committee counsel ♦hat he twice warned President Nixon, in January and again in February, 1973, that former Attorney General John Mitchell was involved in the Watergate affair. Nixon has asserted repeatedly that he first learned of high-level participation in the breakin and coverup on March 21, 1973, when he was told by John Dean. Virtually identical reports of Colson’s statements were published Saturday by the New York Daily News and Columnist Jack Anderson, Committee officials refused comment, but Colson’s attorney and former law partner, David Shapiro, confirmed that “it’s all there” session in which he talked to Nixon of Mitchell’s role and the involvement of Jeb Magruder, then deputy.director of Nixon’s re-election campaign, in the planning of the Watergate affair. * * * The judiciary committee appears likely to question Colson about Nixon’s role in an attempted smear. Colson said Friday:    ‘‘The President on numerous occasions urged me to dissemi-n a t e damaging information about Daniel Ellsberg.” The former presidential aide made the statement before he was sentenced to one to three years for obstructing justice. He had pled guilty of scheming to “defame and destroy” the public image of Ellsberg in 1971. After the statement, several in the published accounts israel warned Frida, in a let-1 Jwhng *NixonTI nut™■    nimteiTiald    & ter to the U.

A total of 243 were rescued “I would not have believed it if I had merely heard it," the account quoted Ii. Cesario Mana, an officer aboard the rescue ship “The truth is I was an eyewitness myself together with practically everyone else aboard the Kalantia ” Mana said Mrs Villanueva was sighted on the second day of the search and rescue operation, clinging to what seemed to be a “huge oil drum,” according to the navy report. "Someone threw her a life ring. The moment she transferred her hold to the life ring, the drum sank. We did not realize it was a giant sea turtle until we started hauling up the woman. For the turtle was beneath her, apparently propping her up,” Mana was quoted. “The sea creature even circled the area twice before disappearing into the depths of the sea, as if to reassure itself that its former rider was already in good hands ” The account said Mrs. Villanueva “kept quiet on the episode with the turtle, giving some the impression she did not believe it ever happened at all.” News Secretary Richard Gilbert also said Ray has put the total amount of damage done to both public and private property and farm losses at an estimated $27 million caused by violent weather and heavy rains in recent weeks The storm’s one victim was identified as Edwin Krogman, 25, w’io died of injuries he sustained when high winds hurled a hoard through the windshield of his ear striking him in the head.
