Selection of the jury, which will be

was expected to last a day or two.
Prosecutors are likely to call up to 40
witnesses, possibly including former

and the defense as many as 60.
FELT AND Miller contend they are
innocent because former acting FBI
director L. Patrick Gray, who faces a
separate trial on the same charges, or-
dered the break-ins of the homes of
friends and relatives of the fugitives.
They also say the terrorists had ties
with hostile foreign powers, making the
hunt a national security investigation

interviewed Nixon twice, once about

"We said, 'We may need you as a wit-

"He said, 'I don't have any problem

"HE CAN help us.'
Gettings said Nixon agreed to testify
if he is given one week's notice. He said
"it's very likely" he will ask the former

president to testify before a court jury
for the first time about activities during
his administration.
Nixon apparently could be useful to

at the Michigan Theatre, will instead be
shown tonight at 7:00 and 9:30 at

to the 1971 film's producer, Bruce Cam-

halted after the 4:00 matinee because

planning on giving Johnny a two-wek
