ROSENTHAI, Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) De- spite defense objections, U.S. Dislrict Judge.John J. Sirica summoned'Watergate burglar E. Howard Hunt Jr., to the witness stand in the Watergate cover-up trial today, nei- ther prosecution or 'defense wiling to vouch lhat he'will tell the truth. Hunt, who headed the Wa- tergate burglary was the second wilness called in the trial of H.R. Ilaldeman, John D. Ehrlichman, -John N. Mitchell, Robert C. Mardian and Kenneth W. Parkinson, all fonner White House or cam- paign aides lo ex-President Richard M. Nixon. .All are charged with conspiring to ob- struct justice in Ihe Watergate investigation. As Ihe Watergate cover-up trial entered the fifth week de- fense lawyers strenuously ob- jected to using the court wit- ness procedure to obtain whal they contend will be unreliable testimony. Haldeman's lawyer, John J. Wilson, was especially vehe- ment about instructions to the jury on Ihe procedure of call- ing court witnesses. "I. have'never read such a startling charge in my Wilson said. "It's deceptive. It's not honest." Plato Cache ris; one of Mitchell's lawyers, called the procedure an "improper influ- ence on the'jury.. I therefore resist it and resist it vigorous- ly." Richard Hen-Vcnislc, an as- sistant prosecutor who Hunt claims tried to gel him lo commit perjury, said j there are numerous instances before the grand jury when Hunt lied and that the court witness de- vice would permit leading questions lo bring out Hunt's motivations to testify falsely. David G. Hrcss, represent- ing Mardian, said whal Ihe prosecution 'was proposing was to "say they have a wit- ness who will make out their case but that witness is a liar." And chief prosecutor James F. Neal said that the govern- ment's theory in the case is "that the defendants conspired to pay money lo Mr. Hunt to keep him from telling whal he knows." He said it was necessary lo probe exaclly whal it was that Hunt knew. Al that point Sirica said he would allow Hunt to testify as a courl wilness. B.V HOWARD BENEDICT Associaled Press Writer 'WASHINGTON (A P) There's a population explosion of sorts in oulcr space. iNot Ihe baby boom variety, bill in Ihe steadily increasing number of manmade objects orbiting the-earth, more Mian at latest count. "It's starting to look like a junkyard out said an official of Ihe North American Defense Command which keeps track of .satellites and debris circling the globe. According to the adage, "What goes up must come down." And the sluff is com- ing down at the rate of one piece a day. Almost all of it burns up from atmospheric friction, and Ihe odds against anyone being hit are calculat- ed at more than one billion lo one. But NOR AD estimates that by year -2000 there will be objects in space, and more fragments are expected to survive rc-cnlry and thus impact on earth bccnusc of sturdier materials and im proved designs. So the odds of getting heancd will become greater unless preventive steps are taken. Most of the orbiling materi- al is useless debris from two sources: satellites and rocket cases that break apart, and expendable items such as nose shrouds, nuls and bolts, cable tethers, spent engines and pressure bottles that are dis- carded when a payload enters orbit. NORAD analysts foresee new launch designs lhat would keep most of Ihe expendable items attached to the final rocket stage. Braking rockets in Ihis stage then would be fired on ground command, and the entire junk pile would plunge from orbit over a re- mote ocean area. Satellite and rocket breakups could be re- duced through safety engi- neering. NORAD's Space Defense Center at Colorado Springs, Colo., keeps tabs on all orbit- ing objpects through a world- wide network of radars and optical sensors, some of which can photograph an item the size of n basketball miles away.
