island by Greece which is believed to be the ob ject of the coup While Makarios pressed his personal crusade Britain and the United States were trying to case the threat of an armed confrontation between Greece and Turkey But even though bnth the easternmost members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization had put their armed forces on emergency alerts American military of ficials in Washington said they believed an armed clash between Greece and Turkey was unlikely Joseph Sisco President Nix ons special emissary flew to London for talks with British and Turkish leaders on the Cyprus crisis He was expected to try to persuade the Turks to stay any use of force against the junta that toppled Makarios Monday Britain is spearheading diplomatic pressure to try to defuse the situation On the Mediterranean island itself the Cyprus national guard pressed a massive manhunt for leftwing politicians and others who supported Makarios More than 1000 persons have been arrested

bomb blast Tower of London security increased London AP British police put stronger security measures in force today following a bomb explosion in the Tower of London that killed one woman ard injured 37 persons The bomb blast was the fourth In England in four days and p lice believed all were set by the Irish Republican Army Guards were strengthened at places of entertainment and government buildings The public was warned to watch for letter bombs or abandoned parcels in railway and subway stations and car parks Scotland Yard appealed to tourists who were taking pic tures at the Tower around the time of the explosion to contact them They were already stu dying a film taken by Joan Halgran 29 from Minnesota who said she saw a man running from the Tower within seconds of the explosion The bomb went off at 2 pm Wednesday in a stone dungeon in the basement of the White Tower where a crowd of tourists many of them foreigners were looking at cannon and suits of armor Many others had just left the building to watch the changing of the guard A number of the injured were children Detectives found a childs foot in the wreckage There was little structural damage to the Tower but some of the historic collection of arms and armor was badly damaged The government said the Tower which is visited by 10000 sightseers daily in the summer would be open today but the bombed area was closed in definitely Nixon gave belated plumbers approval Washington AP President Nixon privately voiced afterthefact approval of the White House plumbers burglary despite his public repudiation of it according to evidence just released by the House impeachment panel Documents said Assistant At ty Gen Henry Petersen told the Watergate Grand Jury that Nixon ordered the Justice Department away from the case in a telephone conversation April 18 1973 I know about that you stay out of that And John D Ehrlichman who overheard Nixons end of the talk with Petersen said the President told him moments af ter hanging up that the plumbers breakin at the office of Daniel Ellsbergs psychiatrist was fully justified by the circumstances Ehrlichman who last week was convicted on four felony counts related to the incident said Nixon again indicated his afte the fact approval in early May 1973 He quoted Nixon directly as saying I surely recognize the valid na tional security reasons it was done Ehrlichmans statements were in an affadavit dated April 30 this year Nixon claimed publicly last summer that he had no knowledge of the burglary beforehand that he would have prohibited it if he did and that he viewed it as completely deplorable House inquiry says private sanction offer the fact of Ellsberg breakin job The Justice Department an affidavit that Nixon was so worked up over Ellsberg that he several days after Nixons talk with Petersen ultimately in formed the judge in Ellsbergs Pentagon Papers trial of the breakin having first sought and received the Presidents concurrence The contradictions over the Presidents role in the case were among four new volumes of im peachment evidence totaling 2090 pages released today by the House Judiciary Committee A fifth volume 225 pages con tained defense evidence The White House defense on the Ellsbrg burglary stopped declared in July of 1971 two months before the breakin thaf I dont give a damn how it is done do whatever has to be done to stop these leaks I dont want excuses I want results I want it done whatever the cost On another key matter the documents showed that Nixons closest aides using information which the late J Edgar Hoover had classified Top Secret and addressed d a i 1 y to the Presi dent attempted to turn a na tional security wiretap into LUC ll short of claiming legitimacy for political gam at home it but hinted strongly that such j That disclosure came among a measures were warranted by hefty and heavily censored concern over leaks sheaf of FBI files sent to the j

that matter until newsmen John W Dean mentioned it on Hoover in a Dec 29 letter to March 17 1973 But it was noted the President noted that one of that Ehrlichman spoke with I the men being wiretapped

Alexander But terfield Jeb Stuart Magruder and Jim Keogh as to coun termeasures against Clif ford Also among the wiretap documents were three Hoover memors which listed Dr Henry A Kissinger as directly authorizing the interceptions Kissinger has denied under oath that he did any such thing and has threatened to resign if he is not cleared of the allega tions In the separate volume of evidence compiled by Nixnns lawyer James D St Clair the wiretapping was portrayed as perfectly legal and high necessary because of news leaks in that period But neither in St Cl airs evidence nor in the four com mittee volumes is there any in dication that any of the wiretaps some of which lasted for months on end produced proof that the national security was being compromised Most of the names were censored from the related documents to avoid public invasion of their privacy OOPs McClory impeachment likely poses seven SgXfS 1 And Associated Press j Nixon Assneiated Press crimes growing out

day Strip mine bill alternative urged Washington AP Opponents of a tough strip mining bill drafted by the House Interior Committee are lining up behind a rival version they claim win protect the environ ment without cutting coal pro duction Rep Craig Hosmer RCalif the leading opponent of the committee bill moved Wednes day to substitute his milder regulatory bill in its place His motion was to be voted on today as the House resumed debate on legislation to establish national environmental standards for the surface mining of coal Hosmer told colleagues the committee bill which establishes numerous specific standards for strip mining and land reclamation is heavy with twists and turns and en vironmental fish hooks Hosmers bill by contrast generally would permit strip mining as long as mining com panies could demonstrate that the land they mined could be restored Rep Morris K Udall DAriz floor manager for the committee bill said the Hosmer proposal would do little to protect the environment He said Americans are filled with a sense of outrage over past strip mining abuses that have scarred the mountainsides of Appalachia and other areas and want it to stop House Republican Leader John J Rhodes of Arizona said the committee bill leans too far towards overregulation But Rep Ken Hechler DW Va said he doesnt plan to support either bill Claiming there is no environmentally sound way to strip mine coal Hechler told the House that either measure would lead to the appalachianizing of the West Hechler says he will offer the House legislation that would phase out strip mining entirely as a third alternative to the committee and Hosmer pro posals His bill is endorsed by a number o f environmental groups Miami AP A young abductor who was paid ransom by his wealthy boss shot the executive and his wife to death in their expensive car then pleaded Dont shoot before surren dering to authorities the FBI says Slain were Sydney Gans 64 the owner of a prosperous paper

Police identified the abductor as Thomas Knight 23 of Miami He was charged with two counts of firstdegree murder FBI Special Agent Ken Whit taker said of Gans He decided he wanted to get the money and turn it over to the gunman because he was afraid about his wife Gans rushed into a downtown Miami bank Wednesday and told the bank president that his wife was being held by a gunman He said he needed The bank officer called the FBI and Whittaker and another agent rushed to the scene Whittaker said Gans told him the gunman was circling the block with Mrs Gans in the couples MercedesBenz The FBI arranged for surveillance of the car being driven by Mrs Gans while the gunman held a semiautomatic carbine to her head Whittaker said had paid ransom of Judiciary Committee said today that the chances are the House of Representatives will vote to impeach President Nix on Rep Robert McClory RI11 said he would guess that four or five of the 17 Republicans on the committee will join the Democratic majority in recom mending impeachment Asked what impact that would have on the House as a whole McClory said that although the case is extraordinary the House ordinarily follows the lead of its committees Meanwhile White Hnuse lawyer James StClair made his final argument in Nixons iJ OLdtCO A draft of the articles was I charge that distributed privately by Brooks I justice by a Nixon

producing each credit hour of instruction for stu dents than most colleges and universities in Illinois accord ing to a state study recently completed The cost per credit hour is the basis used by the state to compare costs at one school against others The state uses the credithour basis instead of trying to determine what it cost a particular school each year to educate a par ticular student The cost un der that system would vary with the number of hours tak en For Southern Illinois the Il linois Board of Higher Educa tion report indicates that John A Logan CoUege of Carter ville and Shawnee College of Ullin spend far below the state average of per credit hour of instruction per year Logan was the second low est statewide at Shaw nee spends per credit hour also far below the state average Illinois Eastern Col lege Olney is lowest at Community College of Decat er is highest at The other area junior col Three junior colleges SIUC below state average study says lege Rend Lake near Ina spends per credit hour slightly above the state aver age but not one of the most expensive in the state The junior college averages cover all forms of instruction The figures include only costs directly related to instruction The study does not make any qualitative judgments on which schools may be offering a better education The report simply lists figures On the university level SIU C is slightly above the states average cost of per stu dent credit hour of instruction SIUCs cost is The average figures include undergraduate graduate and doctoral programs SIUC ranks fourth state wide out of 12 universities Governors State was most ex pensive at per hour fol lowed by Sangamon State at and the University of Illi nois at ChampaignUrbana at SIUEdwardsville is sixth statewide The figures are somewhat misleading according to John Baker an assistant provost at SIUC Baker said the average fig ures do not indicate which universities offer a wide range of graduate and doc toral programs He said those schools generally will have higher costs per student credit hour because the higher level courses are more involved time consuming and have few er students The state report indicates that universities can produce the first two years of classes more cheaply than most jun ior colleges It costs univer sities an average of com pared to the figure for junior colleges At SIUC the cost for edu cating freshmen and sopho mores is per credit hour above the university aver age but below the junior col lege cost SIUC spends to educate juniors and seniors compared to a state average of The largest cost for SIUC falls in the graduate and doc toral levels The university spends for each graduate hour compared to state wide For doctoral students SIUC spends compared to a state average of only In interpreting the data Baker said that some univer sities have only a few doctoral programs which push down the cost He said schools with wellestablished doctoral pro grams with high enrollment also have lower costs sort of caught be tween the two trying to ex pand and building our pro gram Baker said Another important figure in the report is the portion of the total amount spent for salaries SIUC spends less than per credit hour for teachers salaries compared to a state average of nearly SIUC is second lowest Baker said SIUC is low in this area because aries are lower at the univer sity than at most others I think we stack up pretty well in the report Baker said And the good thing is that these figures are from 7273 and do not Indicate the big cuts we have sustained the last year Weshould look evenbetter in thenext report ;
