IOWA, KKIIMY, Jf.NE 28. 1974 CITY FINAL 15 CENTS ASSOCIATED PRESS, UP1, NEW YORK TIMES Prosecutor Goes After Ehrlichman WASHINGTON (APi John Ehrlichman approved the break- in at the office of Daniel Ells- berg's psychiatrist the weekend before it occurred, Prosecutor William Merrill charged Friday. Opening his case in the Plumbers trial, Merrill quoted Khrlichman as saying in a phone call to White House sub- ordinates about tho proposed breakin: "Okay, let me know if they find anything." Merrill said the phone call oc- curred Aug. 31, 1971, four days before the breakin at the office of Dr. Lewis Fielding, the Bev- erly Hills psychiatrist who treat- ed Ellsberg. Ellsberg subsequently was put on trial on charges stemming from the release of the Pen- tagon Papers but a federal judge dismissed the charges after learning among other things of the breakin. From Cape Cod Merrill, an associate special prosecutor, said Ehrlichman's approval was contingent only on the covert operation not being traced to the White House. Merrill said the approval came in a phone call from Cape Cod, where Ehrlichman was va- cationing, to David Young and Egil Krogh, who headed the White House investigative unit known as the Plumbers. Ehrlichman, G. Gordon Liddy Bernard Barker and Eugenio Martinez are charged with vio- lating Fielding's civil rights Friday marked the first day of testimony in their trial. In his opening statement, Merrill described the breakin as "a willful, arrogant act of men who took the law into their own hands because they thought they were above the law." Profile Proposal In response to President Nix- on's concern about news leaks and national security, the Plumbers proposed obtaining a psychiatric profile of Ellsberg, Merrill said. He said they turned to the FBI but, in the spring of 1971 Fielding turned down requests from FBI agents for psychiatric files on Ellsberg. The trial opened on Wednes- day and jury selection was com- pleted late Thursday. Brezhnev Does o Bit of Clowning MOSCOW (AP) Leonid Brezhnev clowned Friday while overseeing the signings of new energy, housing and heart re- search agreements with the U.S. The Soviet Communist party head first swiped Soviet Presi- dent Podgorny's red-bound copy of Ihc housing accord and then be reached for the blue-covered U.S. copy that President Nixon had cradled under his arm after signing it. Nixon resisted the pantomime theft, protesting, "No, no." They laughed and toasted Ihc new accords. Use of Own Funds O.K. -Humphrey WASHINGTON Sena- tor Hubert Humphrey, stung by a senate Watergate committee staff report on his 1972 presiden- tial campaign finances, says he lid nothing illegal in using more ihan of his own money in his campaign and concealing .hat fact from the public. The Minnesota Democrat, in a sometimes emotional late-night telephone call to an Associated Press reporter Thursday, said [he money represented "a life- time of investment" by himself and his wife. Humphrey said he omitted mention of the use of personal funds when he voluntarily dis- closed his finances during Dem- ocratic presidential primaries because at that time the law didn't require full disclosure and because he wanted to con- ceal the matter from his family. "I didn't like to have to con- tribute that money, but we had to do it if we were going to cam- he said. "Like Burglar" Humphrey said the report was written by a Republican staff member, Donald Sanders, and he resented its lone and impli- cations. "It just ends up that you look like, a he said. Although the report was edit- ed by Democratic staff members before being circulat- ed to .the eorhmi-ttee, a Humphrey aide said he believes the committee will reject many of the findings. "Most of that stuff is going to be totally the aide said. just being used .to balance off all this Nixon- Rebozo stuff." The staff report said Humphrey ordered transfer of in stock and in cash from a blind trust into the campaign during January and February, 1972, two months be- fore a new federal, law made it illegal for a presidential can- didate to use more than of his own funds in a campaign. Somewhat Less Humphrey said the stock ac- tually was worth somewhat less, putting the total amount of personal funds used at The report said the staff was unable ;to get answers about how afid when the blind trust was set up or how and when Humphrey came to own the stock. Humphrey said the trust was established in 1965 when he was vice-president and that this was reported in the New York Times. Such trusts are used by some federal officials to avoid appearance of conflicts of inter- est. Their owners are supposed to be kept ignorant of where the money is invested. The trust, was managed for Humphrey by one of his biggest campaign contributors, Dwaync Andreas of Minneapolis. An- dreas was quoted as saying he (Continued: Page 2. Col. 3.)

As late as Thursday night, there was serious doubt a poll- (See Editorial on Page G) ing place would be available at the Mesquakie Indian set- tlement. This issue was apparently resolved, but legal technical- ities remain blurred. In a consent judgment in Cedar Rapids federal court Monday, Judge Edward Mc- Manus ordered a new election be held in four precincts be- cause there was no polling place at the settlement, as was required by a 1973 Iowa law. In the judgment it was stat- ed that "the Tribal Council of the Sac and Fox Indian Tribe of the Mississippi in Iowa shall nominate an election board." Six Names Earlier this week, council Secretary Don Wanatee, who initialed the lawsuit which re- sulted in the new election, submitted the names of six in- dividuals to county Auditor Alvin Ohrt. This list included Wanatee's mother, Adeline, two of his sisters-in-law, Peggy and Carmen. Thursday Ohrt told The Ga- zette, "Don Wanatee is not the tribal council. I can't do any- thing just because he says to." Ohrt met with tribal council Chairman Howard Davenport Thursday morning to .work out difficulties. He came away with no assurances, other than that the council might meet Friday night. Might Take It Davenport told The Gazette he didn't know if a polling place would be set up. "I don't know if we'll do any- thing. We might take he said, "It takes time. We'll have to see." Ohrt said Davenport called him Thursday night and said the council would not meet since several members were on vacation, but he would go along with the election and ap- prove of the names Wanatee submitted. Still, the .tribal council itself has done nothing officially. BIA Official Ohrt commented Friday that he intended to "ignore the technicalities" and pro- ceed with plans to provide in- struction to the election board and establish the polling place at the Indian settlement. Homer Moran, Bureau of In- dian Affairs agent at the set- tlement, said he would ap- prove the use of the school- house for the voting, since this was a provision of Judge Mc- Manus' order. The school, with five ad- jacent acres, is the property of the federal government. Wanatee, contacted Friday morning by telephone, said (Continued: Page 2, Col. 2.)

In addition, Occidental signed contracts to design, equip and supervise construction of two port facilities in the Soviet Union to handle the chemicals. Hammer valued the construc- tion agreements at another million. The chemical deal calls for Occidental to provide about a million tons of superphosphoric acid annually to the Soviets for 20 years.
