The Times also says the ex- cerpts, obtained from a source familiar with Clifford living's manuscript, give "no indication that Mr. Hughes had a part in preparing the Hughes comes across as a bit- ter man whose language is vul- gar, The Times says. The ac- count says he was careless about libelling others and talked at length about sexual exploits. In one excerpt, Hughes is quoted as saying he purposely leaked facts about an alleged payment made to the then Vice-President Richard M. Nixon in the hopes of getting m SIMPSONS-SEARS TUNE-UP SPECIAL Has winter been hard on your car? Now is the time for an expert tune-up!

"Nobody was raising a hand o help Hughes is said to have complained. "They were glad. I'm talking about Wash- ington. They were glad to see me in trouble. So I leaked the details to Drew Pearson." Pearson, the late columnist wrote an article during the 1961 presidential campaign, in which Nixon was a candidate, that the Hughes Tool Co. had loaned to his brother, F. Don aid Nixon. Nixon lost the elec tion to John F. Kennedy. In other excerpts, Hughes al- legedly called former aide Rob- ert Maheu a "very, icy, calcu- lating man" and said singer-ac- fcor Frank Sinalxa "was just taking advantage of my prestige to bolster his waning prestige." Maheu managed Hughes' en- terprises in Nevada for four years until his dismissal in 1970. Sinatra had financial interests in two Nevada casinos until the state took away his gambling licence. Despite denials by the Hughes organization, Irving has main- tained that he compiled the manuscript after more than 100 meetings with the reclusive bil- lionaire. SEEK IRVING AIDE Irving obtained a further delay of his appearance before a federal grand jury Thursday, and authorities issued a sub- poena for Richard R. Suskind, a researcher who says he helped Irving assemble the Hughes manuscript. Inspector John D. Tarpey of the U.S. postal service said Sus- Iricd who lives on the Spanish island of Majorca, had pre- viously refused his request to come to New York and testify before a grand jury. The New York Daily News qtotes Danish folk singer Nina van Pallandt as saying she also had been summoned to testify. She has said she was on a trip with Irving to Mexico when Irv- ing alleges he met with Hughes and that such a meeting did not take place. The Los Angeles Times quotes the attractive singer as saying she and Irving were apart "one to 1% hours at the most" during the trip in February, 1971, and that she never saw Hughes or anyone resembling him during the trip. "I must tell the The Daily News quotes her as say- ing in the Bahamas where she is vacationing. "Irving says he spent hours with Hughes, but he was with me all the time and of course we never saw Hughes." Quake shakes Adriatic coast ANCONA, Italy (AP) A se- ries of sharp earth tremors jolted this town on the Adriatic coast today, cracking walls, top- pling roofs and caused a demon- stration by prisoners that they be let out to the open. Some residents were taken to hospital for shock. One died. Thousands abandoned their homes and rushed to the streets in panic after the first quake struck at a.m. Many spent the night outdoors. The initial tremor was followed by six oth- ers. Scores of prisoners demon- strated in their cells, screaming and beating on the bars. Police at first reinforced guards to quell the disorder but later de- cided to transfer the prsioners to other prisons. RAWALPINDI (AP) With swift action, President Zulfikar Ali Bhutto has dazzled Pakistan out of the doldrums over the loss of its east wing. He freed Sheik Mujibur and jailed the last president of Paki- stan, Gen. Yahya Khan. He seized the management of big business and put magnates under house arrest. But Bhutto faces opposition growing in vocal strength. Most political criticism focuses on his refusal to lift the martial law he inherited from Gen. Yahya, and on a political timetable which could further entrench Bhutto's Pakistan People's party. He has freed industrialists he once threatened to hold hostage and turned to persuasion rattier than threats of force to bring back from abroad the Pakistani money supposedly hidden there. The release of Sheik Mujib re- lieved pressure on Pakistan from outside. But as diplomatic support for Bangladesh grows Bhutto is battling to keep Paki- stan from isolation and to mar- shal support against capitula- tion to India on peace terms nd for the return of prisoners of war and West PaM "ctani civilians held in India and Jangladesh. VANT REFORMS His promises of reform ha earned Bhutto wide popularitj among voters but has caused lunger for more sweeping re- 'orms. The immediate response t Bhutto has been enthusiastic Believing they have a govern ment willing to listen to their complaints, workers have seize actories, students schools, un- cos hospitals and prisoners ieir jails. The access to government, and the excitement, momentar- y have distracted Pakistanis EJiggest union lettlement in history WASHINGTON (AP) The Associa- tion of Machinists said Thurs- day its members have approved a settlement of million in back pay from National Air- lines, which the union called the biggest such settlement in United States labor history. The agreement, ratified by a vote of 742 to 104 among the workers involved, is still subject to formal approval by U.S. dis trict Judge Clyde Atkins o Miami, Fla. Nearly mechanics and other ground-service personne will share in the settlement, the union said. "The union members are due back pay for wages lost in a 53 week illegal lockout by Natinoa the union said. 'Th airline locked out its employee on Jan. 24, 1969, three day after a dispute erupted ove changed working conditions." Machinists' vice-presiden William W. Winpisinger said th unon members involved will re ceive an average of more tha in back pay. rom their defeat and problems growing out of it. Wheat is scarce and so is lour. Factories have closed, most because of shortages in aw materials. Government rev en u e s are down, partly because East Paki- tan contributed 30 per cent of government income. If Bhutto does not obtain the return of prisoners of war from ndia, tens of thousands of fami- ies, mostly concentrated in the Punjab, will grow restive. Bhutto defends keeping mar tial law to press more reforms ie "justifies his efforts to pusl lis party into Baluchistan and into Northwest Frontier by eriti cizing his opponents for failin" to uproot feudal systems o tribal rule and land ownership. Bhutto has not tempered hi promises to make major re forms among landowners wh control most of Pakistan's rich est farm land. He seems to have maintaine the support of most of the vot ers who gave his party 84 of 144 seats from West Pakistan in the December 1970 election. But Bhutto has a long way to travel. If he doesn't deliver as promised Bhutto could become a victim of the ferment he started. CALGARY (CP) The Al- berta Gas Trunk Line Co. Ltd. s prepared to begin purchas- ing and selling natural gas for the first time, president S. R. Blair said Friday. The company currently trans- ports gas within the province [or delivery at the border to companies with markets else- where in Canada or North Am- erica. However, the company has always had the power under the incorporating statute to buy gas, he told a hearing of the Alberta energy resources con- servation board. The hearing was into an ap- plication by Alberta Gas Trunk and McCullough Gas Processing (Alberta) Ltd. to build a gas gathering system in several small fields in east central Al- berta. Mr. Blair was asked what would happen if any of the gas producers failed to get an ex- port commitment. "Alberta Gas Trunk will buy the gas itself, either as supply for our own operations to sell to any consumer or to an ex- port buyer or I suppose, we could anticipate in an export arrangement." No decision on the applica- tion is expected for some time.
