Opening his case in the Plumbers trial, Merrill quoted Ehrlichman as saying in a phone call to White House subordinates about the proposed breakin: “Okay, let me know if money represented they find anything.” Merrill said the phone call occurred Aug. 31, 1971, four days before the breakin at the office of Dr. I/?wis Fielding, the Beverly Hills psychiatrist who treated Ellsberg. Ellsberg subsequently was put on trial on charges stemming from the release of the Pentagon Papers but, a federal judge dismissed the charges after learning among other things of the breakin. From Cape Cod WASHINGTON (AP) - Sena-tor Hubert Humphrey, stung by a senate Watergate committee staff report on his 1972 presiden-John tial campaign finances, says he did nothing illegal in using more than $100,000 of his own money in his campaign and concealing that fact from the public. The Minnesota Democrat, in a sometimes emotional late-night telephone call to an Associated Press reporter Thursday, said a lifetime of investment” by himself and his wife.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -“Deep down I knew ."he was all right because I knew no one could do anything evil to someone so lovable,” says the mother of a 5-year-old girl who was kidnaped seven months ago. Mary Ann Huber was reunited with her daughter, Karen, Thursday after authorities linked the little girl with a (Photo on Picture Page) man who was arrested in San Diego last Friday in connection with the kidnaping of another blue eyed blonde girl. “I never gave up hope for a minute.’’ Mrs. Huber told newsmen. “I’m going to spend all the time I can with’ her. I’m not going to leave her for a minute.” San Diego police said they encountered Karen Jan. 15 when they arrested tin1 man she was with. William Knapp, for auto theft. But they said Knapp told them she was his daughter and she didn’t deny it,    so    silo    was placed in    a receiving home for dependent children and later assigned to a foster home Knapp, 45. was transferred to Los Angeles to serve a jail term, officers said, He turned up    in    San    Diego again last Friday and    was arrested    in connection with the kidnaping of    Michelle    Lynn Bocher,    4. daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Bocher of Long Beach. “Last Friday when we arrested him with the other kidnaped girl we realized the connection,” said Inspector I). W. Burkett. “We started looking at him and found out the girl in January apparently was not his daughter, but she did still call him Daddy when we talked with her.” Mrs. Huber, 33, who is un employed, is divorced and Karen has never seen her father l>os Angeles Police Sgt. Harry Gilpin theorized that Karen may have been “brainwashed to the point where she didn’t know who she was.” Knapp, convicted previously of child molesting, is in county jail on $50,000 bond, charged with child stealing, child molestation and auto theft. Neither Karen nor the Bocher girl were injured, authorities said. Karen, who ha? a brother, 9. and a sister. 2. was abducted Nov. 13 from school here where she was in kindergarten. Michelle was kidnaped from her home June 17, one day after Knapp had been released from jail Karen had no difficulty recognizing her mother when Mrs. Huber was taken to the foster home Thursday to confirm her identity. “Hi Mommy!” the child exclaimed. and then burst into tears* 1:15 p.m. — Trio-Angelos Aerial act. 1:30 p.m. — Cedar Valley Woodcarvers demonstration.
