Skylab runs amuck,
rescue ship planned

(Continued from age3)
need for re-entry," Kraft told the
astronauts.
He said the rocket systems
were being checked for any
"generic problem" which might
give an indication of problems to
expect from the remaining two
systems. No such problems have
been found, however.
"in concluding, we're proceed-
ing as if we're going to have a
nominal mission," said Kraft:
"YOU JUST SAID the right
words," responded Bean. "We've
been hoping you'd say that.
We've been sort of concerned
and I think I speak for Jack and
Owen, we're pretty happy with
the way things are going at the
moment."
Bean said he felt that even

if new problems occurred, "we'd
still have plenty of capability to
return home safely."
Sept. 5 would be the 'earliest
possible moment' that a rescue
craft could be ready for launch,
officials said. This would be 2
days before the 59-day mission
is scheduled to end. The rescue
craft would be piloted by two re-
serve Skylab astronauts.
OFFICIALS EARLIER did not
express the s a m e confidence
Kraft showed when he was talk-
ing to the crew.
"At this point, it looks like the
rescue mission is the direction
we are heading," Flight Direc-
tor Charles Lewis told newsmen.
"Right now, we have no con-
fidence in the command ship."

Beef for Nixon
Toronto butcher Henry Federman was upset by the refusal of a Washington company to supply the
White House with steak, so he's sending $100 worth of sirloins, T-bones and roasts to President Nixon
on ice. Federman says he has beef to spare and is doing his duty. The Washington company blamed
Nixon's economy measures for the beef shortage there, and sent him hamburger instead.
HELMS TESTIMONY
Conspirator on CIA payroll

(Conned from Pae1)
that I was try ing to keep the ag-
ency clean and that I did not suc-
cUmb, as tlong as I kept it clean
I felt I was doing my job."
CUSIHMAN, who appeared in
uniform with row' of ribbons on
his chest, said thit when uIlnt
came to see him on ttly 22, 1971,
he tape recorded the conversa-
tion because liint requested they
meet alone in his office.
The transcript of that convers- t-
tion, given to the committee,
showed lunt saying "I've been
charged with a highly sensitise
mission by the White House tio
visit and elicit inftr-itation frot
ant itidisidual whlitse idetihigs
we aren't entirely sure of"
Hunt asked for "false alias
documentation" and "sotie de-
gree of physical disguise" and
Cushman ordered it dtne. Hunt
was given false identification
cards, as well as a wig, a voice-

altering device and a camera hid-
den in a tobacco pounch.
TIlE KEY POINT of the trans-
cript, however was a partial
quotation from hunt that be-
g i"Well, Ehrlichman said .."
and Cushmtan's reply, "Yes, he
called me"
'tshman said on last Dec. 1t,
almost a year after he became
Marine cornmandant, he was told
by CIA official William Colbv
that the ngeitr teeded to pre-
pare a sumtimtt ry of their contacts
with Iunt.
"le refreshed my memory on
the Ehrlicht iuan phone c tt I

House. I thouight it was Ehrltch-
man bitt I wasn't sure,
IN A related Watergate de-
velopment, James McCord said
that if FBI agents had searched
his auto and home soon after his
arrest in the Watergate break-it,

they would have found $18,000 in
$100 bills and enough evidence
to break the case in days.
McCord, who has been con-
victed for his part in the break-
in, said the FBI was blocked'
from conducting a thorough in-
vestigation.
tIe urged Clarence Kelley, the
bureau's new director, to permit
senior FBI investigators to tell
theirsr oit story of the probe
A FORMIE Air 1 tForce officer
and a fomer agent for both the
1-1tt and CIA. MciiCord comment-
ed in the first of a three-part

the August edititi of the Arined
Forces Journal, t privately pub-
lished magazine aimed at a mili-
tnri audience.
Ile said the FBI was required
-to clear all important leads in
the Watergate itivestigation with
the tistice Department before
pitrsing them.
