But a spokesman said earlier that the eight-ounce plastic heart was designed only to keep a patient alive until a human heart donor could be found. Mrs. Ewan was transferred to Houston at the request of one of her three daughters, Carol Burns of Lawrence, who accom- panied her mother to Houston. Mrs. Burns asked that her mother be transferred in re- sponse to Mrs. Karp's plea for a donor. A potential donor was en- route to the hospital from Cleve- land, Tex., Friday night but died of a blood clot just a few blocks from the medical center. Complications prevented use of that heart, the spokesman laid. The mechanical heart was im- planted in Karp's chest by Dr. Cooley after he determined that a severely damaged heart chamber could not be repaired.

By MARIANNE THOMPSON PELHAM Ninety residents staged a one-hour "sit-In" in the Pelham Town Hall Friday night after being denied a public hear- ing on their petition opposing an apartment complex. They were in- formed that Town Counsel David Hamblett had that day ruled the well-advertised hearing illegal. Upon receipt of the ruling, Haven Strout, Chairman of the Board of Adjustment, met with Selectman Chairman Albert Noh'n, who represents the Board of Se- lectmen on the Adjustment Board, and they decided there was no way of notifying the petitioners of the last-minute cancellation. So they decided to meet with the group and read the counsel's let- ter.

Open II AM to 2 AM Man. thru Sat. Sundays 3 PM to MidniU By DENNIS NEELD Lebanon (AP) King Hussein, who has steered Jordan through 16 years of war and peril, is going to Washing- ton tks week to ask President Nixon to do all he can to smooth the course of the Big Four talks on the Middle East. Hussein pins Ms hopes for peace on Die talks that tile Unit- ed States, the Soviet Union, Britain arid France opened in New York last week. The young monarch feels that continuing tension in his area can only serve Soviet purposes. One of the most flexible and pro-Western of Arab leaders, Hussein rules an embattled land shorn of its richest province and overcrowded with embittered refugees. Because of the refugees, Jor- dan has become (he main base BILLS ARE A PAIN IET A. B. 0. HELP TOD GET OUT OF DEBT BT CONSOLIDATING TOUR PAST_ JDTJE_ _OB NOT. JALLS.

This has made the country the target for repeated retaliatory raids. Its towns have been bombed and farms in the Jor- dan Valley devastated. The plucky, 34-year-old king has weathered plots and assas- sination attempts and has nar- rowly averted a showdown with the Arab guerrillas. But a show- down may still be inevitable. He believes the United States could do more to persuade Is- rael to take a conciliatory and he will warn Nixon that time may be running out both for peace prospects and for-him- self. Hussein has said repeatedly he seeks peace with Israel pro- vided it is based on justice. But his position is too precarious for him to make a unilateral settle- ment, and for the same reason the concessions he can make are limited. The guerrillas reject any solu- tion that provides for the contin- ued existence of Israel. They have no illusions about Hus- sien's desire for peace. con, read the ruling to those who had gathered at the appointed hour and advised them that hearing would be held. Nolin was not present. Reaction was swift, and in a short time Selectman Leonard Philbrick arrived. Philbrick, who had just returned from a three-week vacation on the West Coast, had not been notified of counsel's ruling. He took over the "hot seat" from Strout and Chiasson and fielded questions from the petitioners for 45 minutes. At that point, the irate residents, a larger group than had attended the first session of the annual school district meeting, decided to stay at the Town Hall until the other Selectmen arrived to "hold the meeting we had asked Selectman Philbrick attempted to contact Chairman Nolin but was unable to do so. Finally Select- man Stephen Hobidoux, who also had not been notified of the ruling, was reached.- The scheduled start of the hear- ing had been at p.m. It was at that the residents their decision to "sit in" until the other Selectmen arrived. Robi- doux reached the Town Hall at and the discussion resumed. Robidoux suggested that petitioners send a representative body to meet with the Board of Selectmen Tuesday night. Asked if legal counsel would be present, the Selectmen replied they would try to obtain counsel, but there may be difficulties on such short notice. Regan and Powers urged that the group accept the Selectmen's offer and the petitioners quietly left the building at U p.m. TONIGHT IN THE TELEGRAPH McCormack Prods Nixon By WILLIAM F. ARBOGAST WASHINGTON (AP) House Speaker John W. McCormack, D-Mass., prodded the Nixon ad- ministration today to speed up its recommendations to Con- gress. Emphasizing that he meant no criticism of Nixon, Me-. Cormack said in a statement that Congress and the new Pres- ident "can best act by the exec- utive expediting messages and reports as quickly as possible." Without mentioning criticism of Congress for haying done lit- tie during its first three months in session, McCormack said that to date the legislative branch "has made fine progress." "As a practical he said, "it Is exceedingly difficult for the leadership in Congress to formulate a legislative program and timetable until it has before it those recommenda- tions which the President has- to submit to the Congress." McCormack's prod came on the heels of a weekend state- ment by Rep. Wilbur D. Mills that his House Ways and Means Committee will start writing tax reform legislation before the .end of the month even if Nixon hasn't submitted his own pro- posals. Mills, D-Ark., is chairman of the committee, which handles; all tax legislation. Nixon reportedly has toll leaders of both the House ani Senate that he hopes to present his budget recommendation! and some other major legisla- tive proposals soon after Con- gress returns from its current Easter vacation a week from to- day. McCormack said he made his observations "in the spirit oil having close coordination be- tween the Congress and Presi- dent Nixon." Duting the first three months of the new Congress in 1967, added, Johnson sent 23 mes- sages dealing with major legis- lation. Eleven messages have been sent to Congress by President Nixon since he took office on Jan. 20, McCormack noted, and only eight of them included leg islative recommendations.
