JACK NICHOLSON, in
FIVE EASY PIECES
A brilliant character study of a musician with
great promise who gives up a career to work
on an oil rig. A true film of the '70's with Nich-
olson never better as the frustrated and lost
musician. The restaurant scene is already a
classic. With Karen Black and Sally Struthers.

statement by the Rev. Jesse
Jackson, national chairman of
project PUSH, that Carter's
nomination of Bell was "mor-
ally inconsistent" with the can-
didate's campaign promises.
Among the generally liberal
senators voting to approve Bell
were Edward Kennedy (D-
Mass.), Birch Bayh (D-Ind.),
and James Abouresk (D-S.D.).
Kennedy said he was "very
much troubled" by the nomi-
nation of Bell, who he said has
"at best, a mixed record in the
area of civil rights."
THE WITNESSES before the
committee yesterday, almost
all of them black, ranged in
their criticism of Bell from
soft - spoken disappointment,
to strident charges of racism.
The Rev. Muhammad Ken-
yatta said confirmation of Bell
by the Senate would be, in ef-
fect. "a battle cry of attack on
black America," and that en-
trusting him with control of the
FBI was comparable to giving
a child an atomic bomb.

black Americans to raise some
hell," Kenyatta said, "as a

Hughes had pyorrhea and that
the upper front teeth were com-

The autopsy was performed
by Titus and the pathology staff
at Methodist Hospital on April
6, the day after Hughes died
while being flown from Acapul-

ical treatment. At that time it

Titus said he believes Hughes
suffered from kidney disease for
at least 10 years. The deposi-
tion said the left kidney weighed
90 grams and the right 110, com-
pared with a normal weight of
150 to 200 grams.
Titus said in addition to a
peptic ulcer, Hughes was un-
dernourished, had cancer of the
scalp, a "tiny focus of can-
cer" in the prostrate gland, scar
tissue blocking the urinary
tract, and uremic poisoning.
THE PATHOLOGIST said doc-
tors who accompanied Hughes
to Houston told him the billion-
aire recluse had eaten little in
two or three days and was con-
fused during the last 24 hours
of his life.
Titus said that, to him,, this
would mean Hughes might not
have been sure where he was
or able to identify people around
him. When asked if there was
anything in the report to indi-
cate Hughes suffered from hal-
lucinations, Titus said it was
impossible to tell.
Maldonado said the teeth were
in as "poor shape as any I
have seen since I was in train-
ing 15 to 18 years ago."
TITUS SAID the personal phy-
sicians told him Hughes was an
extremely difficult patient and
refused to see a dentist, refused
to submit to medical examina-
tion or tests and often embark-
ed on erratic dieting, refusing
to drink fluids or eat much of
anything for periods of time.
The doctors also were quoted
as saying Hughes, on April 4,
seemed to go into shock.
Titus said the drug that caused
the kidney failure was phenace-
tin, an analgesic Hughes be-
gan taking after being injured
in a 1946 plane crash. He said
the personal physicians told him
Hughes was persuaded to stop
taking the drug in 1972.
