She said here she would go Before a federal grand jury studying possible fraud charges against Irving and thai her future relationship with the novelist "must now depend on says si outcome of Ihis whole affair." The grand jury in New York is invesligaling Irving's claim that a book manuscript he sold to McGraw-Hill, Inc., was a Hughes autobiography assembled at meetings with the reclusive billionaire. Irving had signed an affidavit saying he and Hughes had long sessions in Mexico about the purported autobiography am lhat Mrs. van Pellandl went with him. However, the singer says she knows of no way Irving could have met Hughes in Mexico because she was never away from Irving more than 90 minutes on the trip. LOVE HAS LIMITS "He loves me; he has asked me lo marry htm and I am sure that, is why he thought I would stand by she told reporters Friday as she arrived in London with her manager, John Marshall.

Mrs. van Pellandl, 39, has been separated from her second husband since 1969 when she and Irving met on the Spanish island of Ibiza, where both have homes. The singer said she and Marshall will fly to New York next week, possibly Tuesday, to testify before the grand jury. Former Hughes aide John Meier told the jury Friday he could tell by reading Ihe manuscript whether the purported autobiography was authentic and offered to do so.

His scheduled appearance before the grand jury has been postponed. There were strong indications that the panel planned to question Robert A. Mahcu and his son Peter. The elder Mahcu managed Hughes' enterprises in Nevada for years, then sued his former boss for million after he was fired in 1970.
