rinin ESen. Gurney indicted on
perjury, bribery charges

(Continued from Page1)
WILLIAMS PLEADED guilty
last February to federal charges
of income tax evasion and aid-
ing a former FHA official in
accepting a bribe and was sen-
tenced to one year in prison.
Gurney has denied any wrong-
doing in connection with the
fundraising operation, under in-
vestigation by the Justice De-
partment, Internal Revenue Ser-
vice and HUD.
As the allegations mounted,
the senator went on statewide
television in Florida last Dec. 6
and declared, "I have received
nothing, I've made no personal
gain."
HE BLAMED Williams wor
using his name to extort money
from Florida builders but con-
ceded "it's true that I was care-
less and unobservant and too
trusting."

Q. Apart from whether you
authorized a direct psychologi-
cal profile, did you have any
knowledge that a psychological
profile was being worked on by
the CIA or David Young?
A. I had no such knowledge.
Q. Did you have any knowl-
edge whether there was a plan
to obtain psychological infor-
mation regarding Daniel Ells-
berg or his psychological files
from his psychiatrist?
A. I had no such knowledge.
Young, leader of the White
House plumbers unit, had tes-
tified that the purpose of a
break-in was to obtain informa-
tion for the profile.
Young never mentioned any
Kissinger involvement, but
CIA psychiatrist Bernard Mal-
loy testified last Friday that in
an Aug. 12, 1971 meeting Young
had told him Ehrlichman and
Kissinger had requested the
profile.
Kissinger was on the stand
less than two minutes.

Pony Express rides again
Thirteen cowhands were enlisted Tuesday to re-enact the days of the Pony Express as part of a
protest, sponsored by several Colorado communities, against new U. S. Postal Service procedures
for sorting and delivering the mail. The riders carried saddlebags stuffed with postcards from
Telluride and Lake City Colorado to Montrose in eight hours. Residents claim it takes the post
office, using presumably more modern methods, two to three days to accomplish the same feat.

HANDBOOK TELLS
OF PHOSPHORUS
WACO, Tex. (P)-Jean Morgan
Spencer, assistant professor of
geology at Baylor University, is
one of four editors of a recently
published book, "The Environ-
mental Phosphorus Handbook."
The book compiles articles on
phosphorus by 41 authors from
as far away as Japan, Rome,
Africa, Canada and Switzerland,
and from the United States.

Mrs. Spencer said the book is
designed to present the opinions
and findings of specialists in
various scientific fields on the
subject of phosphorus.
Written chiefly for scientists
and government officials inter-
ested in the effects of phos-
phorus on our environment, the
book explores all aspects of the
mineral, including how and in
what forms phosphorus reaches
the earth, the weathering of
phosphorus, phosphorus deposits
and how to prospect for them,
phosphorus in oceans and com-
pounds of phosphorus.

Gurney, 60, served three
terms in the House of Represen-
tatives before his election to
the Senate in 1968.
During his service on the
Watergate committee, he was
considered a strong defender of
President Nixon.
THE INDICTMENT charged
that as part of the conspiracy,
Williams and Groot would use
slush fund money for expenses
of the senator's Washington of-
fice and Florida field offices
"and for the travel expenses
and other political and personal
expenses of Edward Gurney and
members of his staff . . - in-
cluding the salary of Larry
Williams.
It also was part of the con-
sniracy that Gurney and his
staff members "would corrupt-
lv, directly and indirectly, ask,
demand, exact, solicit, seek, ac-
cept, receive, and agree to re-
ceive things of value for Ed-
ward Gurney and other public
officials ... in return for their
being influenced in the perform-
ance of their official duties ...,"
the indictment said.
Among other things, the gov-
ernment charged that Gurney
was bribed by the owner of a
Vero Beach, Fla., condominium
apartment project in exchange
for the senator's influence with
HUD. The bribe was a fifth-
floor oceanfront apartment in
the project, the indictment said.
THE CATALOG-of charges
traces a continuing series of
contacts between Gurney for
using his associates and Florida
builders.
The charges of lying to the
grand jury stemmed from Gur-
ney's testimony last May 13 in
which he said he did not know
learn until a year later that
the money was being used for
expenses of his Florida field
offices.
The indictment charged that
Gurney knew of the fundraising
scheme before dates he gave
in his testimony.
GURNEY ALSO was accused
of lying when he testified that
he had told his law partner's not
to accept clients doing business
with the federal government. In
fact, the indictment said, he had
given the opposite instructions.
The final lying count said
Gurney gave false testimony
when he denied instructing For-
rest Howell not to award a
certain project to Joseph Chap-
man. Howell is a former direc-
tor of HUD's Florida area of-
fices
