(UPI)- Between 700 has bee

and 800 corrections officers at four1
state prisons yesterday were on'
the verge of striking over griev-
ances related to the fatal stabbing,
of a Marquette State Prison guard.1
State Corrections Director Perry,
Johnson said strikes could start
"within the next several hours" at
Southern Michigan Prison at Jack-'
son and the Michigan Reformatory
and Michigan Training Unit at'
Ionia. A strike deadline of 6 a.m.
this morning was in effect at Mar-
"IT WOULD BE an emergency;
situation if the employes really do
strike," Johnson said.
Marquette is the state prison
facility where so-called "problem"
prisoners are incarcerated. Jack-
son, the world's largest walledI
prison, was the site of a disturb-
ance last month sparked by a work'
stoppage by inmates at various,
factories within the prison.I

jury's jurisdiction ..."
THE THREE-PAGE motion also
charged that the prosecutors in
the case "have engaged in a steady
campaign of statements to the press
which could have no purpose and
effect other than to prejudice any
grand or petit jury hearing evi-
dence relating to Agnew."
Mortonson told the press at the
federal courthouse that he had
delivered copies of the motion to
both U.S. Atty. George Beall, who
is heading the investigation, and
to Asst. Atty. Gen. Henry Peter-
sen after discussing the matter
with Beall yesterday morning. He
would not elaborate on the dis-
Mortonson filed with the motion
an affidavit specifying what was
termed specificexamples ofiso-
called leaks to the news media in
connection with the case.
"TAKEN TOGETHER, they per-
mit only one possible explanation:
the number of officials in the pro-.
secutorial arm of our government
have misused their offices in an
immoral and illegal attempt to
drive the Vice-President from the
office to which he was elected, and
to assure his conviction," the af-
fidavit read. The documet was
signed by Jay Topkis, another
Agnew lawyer.
The motion was filed as other
lawyers for Agnew and for the
Justice Department gathered in
Norfolk, Va., for an appointment
with U.S. District Court Judge Wal-
ter Hoffman, appointed to super-
vise the Baltimore ivestigation of
the Vice-President.
Hoffman was appointed to super-
vise the Agnew inquiry last month
after all nine federal court judges
in Maryland disqualified them-
selves in the case because they
were friends or past business as-
sociates of the Vice-President.

,old tuitionI
"We're going to close down
LSA," screamed a student through
a loudspeaker to approving cries
of "Damn right!"
"We can stop people from get-
ting to the windows. Get in line,
give them your letters supporting
the strike, explain it to them, then
get in line again."
Another student urged the po-
testers to "ask stupid questions,
ask/them to look things up for you.
Check to see if you're enrolled this
term. Say you lost your ID card,"
he said.
A number of students put flyers
protesting the hike into a campus
mailbox, to be forwarded to "Rob-
bie" Fleming.
\ By 12:45 p. m., there was scarce-
ly a tuition-payer in the line.
But half an hour later, the pro-
testers had disbanded quietly, the
placards were on the floor, and
the deepest question asked in the
LSA lobby was, "Are you in line?"
The lines were slightly longer,
crowded by the students unable to
reach the cashiers during the pro-
"I don't like the situation either,"
complained one student who re-
turned to the line after leaving
during the protest. "I'm on the
losing end of the stick, too.

University going to come from? he
asked. "I'm extraordinarily pissed

troversial judge. He often says
his philosophy is, "I will do my
duty if it costs me my last friend
on earth."
The motion by Agnew's lawyers
to stop the grand jury probe had
been expected last Wednesday or
Thursday before the grand jury
actually began taking evidence'"
from witnesses against Agnew. But
nothing was filed and the Agnew
probe opened Thursday.
The Justice Department issued
a three-page statement shortly
after Agnew's attorneys took legal
steps to halt the investigation by a
federal grand jury.
"It is clear that there is no
basis whatsoever-in fact or com-
mon sense," for Agnew's claim that
the Justice Department has been
the source of leaks of information
about the investigation to the news
media, the statement said.
ATTY. GEN. Elliot Richardson,
who launched a formal investiga-
tion of the alleged leaks in late
August, has received a preliminary
report exonerating Justice Depart-
ment officials, the statement said.
It added: "To suggest further,.
as the lawyers for the Vice-Presi-
dent have, that the Justice Depart-
ment investigation is a 'plot to
'drive the vice president from
office' is patently ridiculous.
"The investigation is based on
evidence which is being marshaled,
in as expeditious and responsible
a manner as possible," the state-
ment continued. "The Department
of Justice will continue', to dis-
charge its duties to enforce the
laws of this land and -will not be
diverted from that duty by un-
substantiated charges."
harshest public comment by the
Justice Department in a series of'
critical volleys between the depart-
ment, Agnew, and his lawyers.
THF STATEMENT said there
was "not a single public leak of
information concerning the investi-
gation" until Agnew himself on'
Aug. 1 released a letter he re-
ceived from U.S. Atty. George
Beall informing him of the probe.

The terrorists issued a state-
ment, according to the Austrian
News Agency, in which they said
" .We, the Eagles of the Pales-
tinian Revolution, declare our re-
sponsibility for this operation.
"WE UNDERTOOK this mission
because we are of the opinion that
the immigration of Soviet Jews
represents a great danger for our
cause . . . It was not our first blow
and it will not be the last."
The Austrian government was
reliably reported to be in close
contact with Arab governments in
an effort to secure a peaceful so-
lution. Austpia is a member .of the
United Nations Security Council,
and takes a non-committed stand
on the Middle East in line with its
neutral policy.
Security authorities at the heav-
ily - guarded airport said negotia-
tions had been conducted mainly
with one of the guerrillas, who
identified himself as a lawyer and
spoke fluent English.
HE TOLD POLICE, "I have got
plenty of pills. 1 can stand it for-
ever."'.At another point, he was
reported to'-have told officials he
could "last out for 96 hours."
The other guerrilla was describ-
ed as nervous and half-asleep as

the 'day's discussions went on.
The Arabs demanded a radio "to
hear about our success," but the
request was turned down.
