Ken Mattingly (CMP prime crew, replaced for medical reasons) talks to CAPCOM about getting in touch with Jack Swigert's family in Colorado.  A Tom Andrews had been there with the family since the flight began, mostly to protect them from the press.  CAPCOM gives Mattingly the Swigerts' phone number.
