(Sunfoto) WASHINGTON (AP) Atty. Gen. Elliot L. Richard- son agreed today to let a Sen- ate Foreign Relations subcom- mittee read FBI summaries of wiretaps to facilitate confirmation hear- ings on Henry. A. Kissinger's nomination to be Secretary of State. Richardson schedu led an af- ternoon meeting with Sens. Clifford P. Case, and John Sparkman, D-Ala. The attorney general said they could not have access to the raw files but could read FBI summaries of what was learned from the.wiretaps. Case told newsmen the re- port runs 25 to 50 pages and describes who made the tapes .of conversations held by the 17 officials and newsmen. He said he thought it also contained summaries of raw data about the conversa- tions. Asked whether this would settle the snag over committee 'access to information about wiretaps that Kissinger ap- proved, Case said: "As the temper seems now I don't think .there will be an impasse." Sen. J. W. Fulbright, D-Ark., the committee chairman, an- nounced, meanwhile, that pub- lic witnesses opposed to Kis- singer will be heard on Friday and that the committee ex- pects to vote on the nomina- tion on Tuesday. The full committee, in its third day of hearings on Kis- "singer's nomination, has been seeking access to the sum- maries in order to learn what role the national security-ad- viser played in placing the wiretaps on 13 government of- ficials and four newsmen in 1969 and 1970. Richardson refused. several tn'e'rW'commit- tee the summaries, claiming such access coma lead to leaks which might damage either na- tional security or the reputa- tions of those under surveil- lance. In an effort to break the deadlock Fulbright Monday proposed that the special sub- committee be allowed to see the summaries and then report back to the full panel. In a similar case 20 years ago, a two-member subcom- mittee obtained access to gov- ernment files. Justice Department spokes- men said today Richardson agreed to the compromise to help move Kissinger's nomina- tion through its confirmation process. The spokesmen said it, was an attempt to accommo- date the committee. While Richardson was an- nouncing his decision, Kis- singer and Fulbright. were en- gaging in a professorial-like di- alogue on the philosophy of American foreign policy. The committee chairman said that American interna- tional policy as stated by Kis- singer was based on invalid as- sumptions and had teen prov- ed bankrupt by the Vietnam war. According to the chairman, the administration and Kis- singer still assume that a "Pax Americana" could be built on military force and economic power. This cannot be sustained, Fulbright charged, either by the American economy 'or in ligh.t of the..growing power of. other nations. He.caljedjor a. new policy based onCcbbpera- tion and peaceful exchanges with the rest of the world. Kissinger said during the 40-minute exchange that he agreed the United States' "concept of security must change." But the national se- curity adviser strongly defend- ed the achievements of U.S. foreign policy in the past five years. He also denied that his thinking was based primarily on the same assumptions that led previous administrations into the Vietnam war and other international entangle- ments. Kissinger denied a published report that he had leeked sen- sitive material on strategic armed negotiations to writer John Newhouse, for his book, "Cole Dawn: The start of SALT." 12 Executed By Cambodia PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) At least 12 officers in the Cambodian army were exe- cuted last Friday for ordering their troops to retreat before That 'Visitor' to Skylab Had Houston a Bit Baffled SPAC.E CENTER, Houston (AP) A woman stowaway aboard the Skylab space sta- tion? The astronauts tried to make mission control think so. The center was running smoothly Monday night when a woman's voice beamed down from the orbiting laboratory: "Hello, Houston, this is Sky- lab. Are you reading me down Silence fell in the control center. Everyone looked sur- prised. "Hello, Houston, are you reading the sexy- sounding voice repeated. Capsule communicator Rob- ert Crippen, who minutes earli- er had been conferring with as- tronauts Alan L. Bean, Dr. Owen K. Garriott nnd Jack R. Lousma, overcame momentary surprise and replied: "Ahh, Skylab, this is Hous- ton. I heard you all right. But "Isn't that you down there, the woman's voice asked. "This is Helen here in Skylab. The boys haven't had a home- cooked meal in so long I thought I would bring one up. Over." "Roger, said. Skylab." Crippen HELEN GARRIOTT I had a little difficulty recog- nizing your voice. Who've we got on the line "I think someone has to be pulling my leg. Helen, is that really A center spokesman later ex- plained that Garriott had re- corded the voice of his wife, Helen, during a private radio conversation Sunday night. The incident demonstrated the high spirits of the three astronauts as they begin the last two weeks of their 59-day orbital mission. Today, their 4fith in space, was filled with the usual earth resources, medical and solar astronomy experiments. an enemy attack near besieged Kompong Cham, reliable sources reported today. The executions were ordered after an inspection of Kom- pong Cham, Cambodia's third largest city 47 miles northeast of Phnom Penh, by Gen. Sosthene Fernandez, the com- mander in chief of the Cam- bodian army, the sources said. They reported he issued a gen- eral order to upper-echelon commanders to shoot, anyone refusing to fight. It was the first report of exe- cutions of Cambodian army of- ficers for desertion in the face of the enemy in the three years of war in Cambodia. The sources gave this ac- count of the incident: The officers were first lieu- tenants and captains who pulled their men back last Thursday during an attack by the Khmer Rouge insurgents on government defensive posi- tions at the village of Balaing, two miles north of Kompong Cham. INSIDE THE SUN Comics 13 Crossword 13 Editorial 4, 5 Markets 2 Movies 13 Parker News 3 Sports Women 7 By ASSOCIATED PRESS Chile's armed forces revolt- ed today and demanded that President Salvador Ailende re- sign and leave his palace. He refused. Radio broadcasts said miliary forces then attacked the palace in downtown San- tiago and bombed Allendes suburban home. No mention was made of ca- sualties. Allende, a Marxist, was be- lieved to be at his official pal- ace downtown. Allende rejected the armed forces demands in a broadcast early in the day, saying he would defend his office to the death. Radio Pacifico of Santiago said in a broadcast monitored in La Paz, Bolivia, that tanks had surrounded the presiden- tial palace. Chile's borders were closed and all communications into and out of the country were cut. Airliners were turned back. Broadcasts monitored in nearby Argentina said the armed forces leaders claimed that they had seized control of tht government. A heavy air and ground at- tack against the the downtown palace went 'on for about 20 minutes and then suddenly halted apparently to give the army a chance to negotiate with Allende, who took office in 1970 with a program to make Chile a Socialist state. Associated Press corre- spondents watching the attack from a high building nearby could see that the interior patio of the La Moneda presi- dential palace had been de- stroyed by bombs. About the same time, air force planes bombed Allende's suburban residence. There were no immediate reports of casualties. A communique read over Chilean radio stations, linked in a network said, "We warn all persons who are offering resistance to the new govern- ment should be aware of the consequences." The palace was surrounded eariy, and militarv aircraft buzzed low over its roof. Al- lende had addressed the nation earlier by radio, but air and ground attacks silenced sta- tions loyal to him. Allende took office in No- vember 1970 after winning na- tional elections. The situation in Chile has been near collapse for weeks after a series of strikes and terrorist attacks in protest to Allende. The junta criticized Allende for leading the country to "hunger, misery, poverty and control by foreign Marxist mercenaries." The military announce- ments were made in the name of a four-man junta identified as Gen. Augusto Pinochet, commander in chief of the army; Gen. Gustavo Leigh, commander in chief of the air force; Adm. Jose Toripio Merino, acting commander in chief of the navy, and Gen. PRESIDENT ALLENDE Cesar Mendoza, the nation's police chief. The communiques said the junta was Chile's "military government of national libera- tion." Allende had appointed Pino- chet and Leigh to their posts only two weeks ago.

But Kissinger said that he sent his staff a memo- randum strictly forbidding them to give Newhouse access to national security files. Kissinger also said he had nothing to do with a White House-ordered search of State Department files by E. Howard Hunt. Hunt, later convicted in the Watergate conspiracy, was looking for material to tie the late President John F. Ken- nedy to the 1963 assassination of South Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem.

Mitchell watched today as his attorneys pleaded before a federal ap- peals panel "for a fair chance" to prepare his defense against conspiracy-perjury charges. Mitchell, 60, looking pale and wan but occasionally smil- ing, appeared in the 17th-floor courtroom which was .filled with reporters but only a handful of other spectators. He did not sit at the defense table but on a leather chair nearby. Maurice H. Stans, former secretary of commerce, who also was making a plea to delay the conspiracy-perjury trial scheduled to begin later today, was not present. Peter J. Fleming Jr., Mit- chell's attorney in this case, told the three-judge panel that he could not, despite lengthy preparation, be ready for trial today. enterprises have the right to set their own business hour. 'in a related development, service station employees have scheduled a meeting at p.m. tonight at Airport Shell 2090 E. 32nd Street. Joe Wardle, Airport Shell manager, said, "We'll probably talk about the same thing the dealers are talking about. We're worried about our jobs. "There will probably be quite a few people laid off if the prices aren't allowed to change. The dealers just won't be able to pay us unless the prices are allowed to he explained. Wardle said he expects most of the local station managers and attendants to attend the meeting. In another development, five Arizona gasoline dealers who attended the Internation- al Association of Service Sta- tion Dealers meeting in San Diego last night were sche- duled to arrive in Yuma today. At the meeting the dealers decided to meet Thursday on the White House lawn to pro- test the Phase 4 gasoline price. Gary Wheeler, Airport Shell manager, said people are expected at the protest. Wheeler added, "We still haven't heard from our con- gressmen. 1 guess they don't care about our economy." He explained dealers sent letters and a petition with sig- natures on it to the congress- men.
