In Rocky  RABAT, Morocco (AP) — AI-; I gerian President Houari Bou- J jmedienne has given Secretary! of State Kissinger his assurance that he will go along with a step-by-step approach to settlement between Israel and the Arab states, U.S. sources said Tuesday.  Boumedienne, one of the most influential and radical Arab leaders, told Kissinger at a three-hour session in Algiers Monday night that he will not be an obstacle to such an approach when the issue comes up at an! Arab summit conference here next week.  Newsmen were told on the | flight from Algiers that Kissinger made the point in his talks with Arab leaders that they have a choice between allowing King Hussein of Jordan to arrange a partial Israeli pullback or sticking with the Palestinians and achieving nothing.  Faced with this choice, Boumedienne elected to go along with Kissinger’s plan to induce Israel to negotiate with Egypt and Jordan rather, than to push for an overall settlement now through the Geneva peace conference, sources said.  Assad Skeptical  Boumedienne's support, added  WASHINGTON (AP)- President Ford fully supports Nelson Rockefeller for vice-president and “has complete faith in Gov.  Rockefeller’s integrity,’’ a White House spokesman said Tuesday.  The White House statement came after Senate Democratic Whip Robert Byrd said a book about Arthur Goldberg “is pretty reminiscent of the dirty tricks in the Nixon era.” Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott, however, described as generous Rockefeller's decision to take responsibility for the book financed by his brother.  Press Secretary Ron Nessen said he did not see “any sense of concern" on Ford’s part that the gift-giving disclosures about Rockefeller would have any adverse affect on his confirmaton by congress.  Telephone Call  Nessen was asked about Rockefeller’s telephone call to the President last Saturday about the gifts and the financial backing by Rockefeller’s brother.

It was the first time Ehrlichman had turned accuser of Nixon, whom he served as chief domestic adviser in the White House until April, 1973, when the Watergate scandal became a major issue.  “Richard Nixon deceived, misled, lied to and used John Ehrlichman to cover up his own knowledge and activities while publicly stating that John Ehrlichman was one of the finest public servants he had ever known,” Prates told the jury.  “Had by Boss”  “He (Nixon) was deliberately withholding information from him — covering up to save his own neck. In simple terms, Mr. Ehrlichman had been had by his boss, the President of the Unit ed States.”  Prates said Ehrlichman’s de  Dean To Appear  Prates made the first opening statement for the defense. Lawyers for two other defendants, Robert Mardian and Kenneth Parkinson were to follow. The other defendants, Haldeman and John Mitchell, reserved their opening statements until the prosecution case ends.  The first witness was to be John Dean, the first White House insider to accuse Nixon and his closest associates.  Dean was to testify to a jury: that had been told by govern- 1  ment prosecutor Richard Ben-Veniste on Monday that Nixon once suggested Dean be given to investigators as a sacrificial “hors d’oeuvre and maybe they won’t come back for the main course.”  Quoting from tape recordings to be made public for the first time in the trial, Ben-Veniste told of conversations among the former President, Haldeman and Ehrlichman in April, 1973, about the threat posed by Dean, then spilling the Watergate story to prosecutors.  On April 14, Ben-Veniste said, the three men “considered a strategy of pushing Dean outside the circle of wagons around the White House.” It was then, he added, that Nixon  House Vote Short of Overriding  WASHINGTON (AP) - The house failed Tuesday to override President Ford s veto of congress’ cutoff of military aid to Turkey, killing the cutoff.
