The story, by Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward, quoted in- formed sources.

The Post story said Rebozo made the reported disclosure to Kalmbach in asking legal ad- vice shortly after the banker learned that the Internal Rev- nue Service was investigating the Hughes contribution. The newspaper said Kalm- bach testified he advised Rebo- zo to inform the IRS that Miss Woods and Donald Nixon had received the undetermined por- tion of the money.

Banks said Friday that the Associated Press and United Press International had been pressured by the government to downplay coverage. An AP spokesman said there had been no requests or pres- sure of any kind from any gov- ernment agency. The spokes- man added that stories had been carried on the news co- operative's main national wire and a secondary wire at various times since the start of the trial. Banks said there appeared to be a conspiracy to discourage further Indian political protests by suppressing news of the trial.
