Meanwhile, four senators, in- cluding Scott, added their names to a senate resolution praising Secretary of State Kis- singer as a patriotic American "whose integrity and veracity are above reproach." The new signatures brought the number of senators co-sponsoring the resolution to 43. Mansfield is on the list. Mansfield and Scott were asked about wiretapping in con- nection with a controversy over Kissinger's role in national se- curity wiretaps. He said Tues- day (hat he will resign if at- tacks on his integrity are not cleared up. ".Might Be Necessary" "If tied to national security, it (wiretapping) might be neces- Mansfield said. "But I certainly wouldn't want it used at random or indiscriminately." Scott, in an apparent refer- ence to the 1968 Omnibus Crime Control Act, said congress had passed a law to cover sur- veillance in national security cases. "It is proper to do whatever is legally permissible to secure the nation's he said. However, Scott said he would not make a judgment in individ- ual cases without knowing all the facts. Six Members The bipartisan group sponsor- ing the resolution includes six members of the senate-foreign relations committee, which Kis- singer has asked to determine if he lied last September about his role in national security wire- tapping. Mansfield indicated he does not expect the committee, to which the resolution was re- ferred, to consider the resolution until it completes its inquiry.

U. S. Judge Gerhard Gesell said Wednesday he found a "substantial change" in Pres- ident Nixon's position on execu- tive privilege over Ehrlichman's access to some of his White House files. He said this may make unnecessary a separate, delayed trial for Ehrlichman.' The judge met with lawyers for the President and Ehrlich- man in his chambers for almost two hours Thursday to discuss the arrangement.

The two presidents used the snail-paced ride to discuss Ge- neva negotiations to reach a per- manent peace in the Mid-East. They told newsmen they agreed Arab leaders should hold what Sadat called a "little summit" before meeting with Israel. More Talks Sadat suggested and Nixon appeared to agree that more bilateral talks between the U. S. and Middle East countries are needed prior to a resumption of the Geneva peace conference. But diplomatic sources reject- ed speculation that Sadat was suggesting a delay in reconven- ing the talks. Nixon said Sadal "was aware of Ihe intricacies of in- ternational diplomacy" and realizes that Ihere are "a number of nations with clif- State General Fund Revenue Estimate Off By Harrison Weber DES MOINES (IDPA) The state's fiscal experts may have underestimated revenue to the state's general fund this year by as much as million.
