"Patently false" and "a totally fantastic fiction" -were other terms he used to describe the book in the long-distance conference with seven reporter gathered about a table in a Los Angeles hotel -His health Is but he is not happy or content and is hounded by lawsuits and "overhanging threats" such as the alleged autobiography. The news conference, said by Hughes' spokesmen to be his first in more than 15 years, provided the latest development in a dispute over the authenticity of the book which McGraw-Hill is scheduled to publish March 27. Life magazine plans to serialize three instalments before McGovern of South Dakota and Henry Jackson of Washington, Los Angeles Mayor Sam Yorty and New York Mayor John Lindsay, and former Senator Eugene McCarthy. Lindsay and McCarthy already have entered the contest for Pennsylvania' a 132 delegates to the Democratic national convention.

They become a subject of controversy when various critics advanced theories about UK assassination which contradicted the verdict of the official Inquiry, headed by Earl Warren, the then chief justice, that Oswald fired all the shots which struck the president. Dr. Lattimer has written and lectured extensively about the assassination. An agreement between the Kennedy family and the National Archives gives a family representative, Burke would have been impossible for anyone to fire that shot from in front of the which disposed of theories that the shot was fired by a second assassin. X-rays showed there were only two bullets, the doctor said. Dr. Latttor told The Times that the wound from the second bullet to strike the president was "horrible" and that pictures of it should never be made public.

The miners walked out of the pits at midnight Saturday night in what was seen as the first major confrontation with tire government this year over its determination to hold pay settlements down to a maximum of eight per cent. Stockpiled coal supplies are sufficient to meet industry's needs for up to nine weeks in some areas, but government sources have hinted luel for householders might be rationed if a long and bitter battle with the miners develops. How long the miners will hold out will probably depend on the outcome of meetings of leaders of Britain's major unions who are due to decide today how much help they will give the strikers. The miners demanded pay increases ranging up to 47 per cent on basic salaries for face workers equivalent to a week. The National Coal Board, which runs the state-owned Industry, withdrew its final offer of a 7.9-per-cent Increase when the strike began.

Frank Basil told the National Association of Canadian Race Tracks, meeting here, that in the final 129 days of racing at Aqueduct and Belmont Park last year, a total of J39 million in off-track bets was made, while the tracks lost an equivalent amount. "Is this a Basil asked. "In my opinion, the answer is no. "There is a direct relationship between the loss in on-irack betting and the amounts wagered at off-track parlors. I predict that OTB in full operation will cause an immediate decline in attendance of 17 per cent and 13 per cent in handle. The long-run decline will reach 30 per cent in attendance and 26 per cent In wagering." The text of Basil's speech was made available in advance. Basil said the revenue that supposed to provide to he dty continually drops below estimates and even Hie most recent J25 million i might prove to be high, STATE PROFITS On the other hand, he said, thoroughbred racing provided the ttate with million lut season despite a recurring annual deficit.
