Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, April 27, 1974 Henry Kissinger: His style is the man himself New York Times Service WASHINGTON After spven months as secretary of state, Kenry A. Kissinger has succeeded in reviving the morale of the state department and restoring it to its traditional place at the center of American foreign policy. Kissinger has not done this through any miracles of administration but largely" through the force of his personality and the transfer of his main operations from the White House to his seventh-floor offices He has replaced almost all ranking officials with a highly motivated, individualistic team of people who are loyal to him but are prepared to speak their minds. Because of his extraordinary foreign travel, Kissinger has not been able to find the time to carry out his promises to "institutionalize1" foreign policy and to involve the 11.000-man department and toreign service fully in its execution. This has produced sharp criticism of Kissinger's work style. Some of his closest associates believe that he should delegate more responsiblity and not try to maintain control over so many activities _ While abroad his air force jet, he "runs" the department, sending and receiving messages on specially installed equipment. Even on his recent wedding trip to Acapulco he had the department send him special pouches, and he constantly communicated with officials and ambassadors in Washington. On occasion the secretary's working' habits have slowed the administration's decision-making process in foreign policy No action can be taken on major matters without his consent even if it means delaying a decision until he can study it. His desire to be in total control extends to the furnishings of his offices and the menus at his meals: more than most secretaries of state, he has involved himself even in minor matters. Kissinger's role as head of the department, many believe will ultimately have greater impact on foreign policy than the highly visible public-relations operation that in some quarter has earned him the title of ''president for foreign affairs His main departmental ac- complishment, sandwiched between trips, has been ending the lethargy that set in during the five years under his pr-edecessor. William P. Rogers. This lethargy which caused a serious morale problem at Foggy Bottom, was to a great extent the result of Kissinger's almost daily undercutting of the state department from his White House office, where he served as President Nixon's special assistant (or national security affairs. Rogers often knew nothing about Kissinger's activities, and what he did know he usually could not pass on to his colleagues. Since information is regarded as power in Washington, the department began to be considered an ineffectual organization. Last Sept. 22 Kissinger was sworn in as secretary of state while keeping his White House job. thus ending the rivalry and centering all responsibility on him. Because of his highly publicized travels, he sometimes seems to be acting independently of the president, but his close aides insist that they remain in constant contact. ''If anything the president's political troubles have made the White House staff more nervous than ever about any imagined or real slights by the secretary toward the an aide to Kissinger said. Although Kissinger's, expressed disdain for the Foreign Service was resented by many officers, almost all welcomed his entry into the department. They believed and this has largely been borne out that his presence would mean that power and prestige would move in their direction. Kissinger, not making any particular effort to endear himself to members of the foreign service most have not met him has restricted his contacts to a relative handful of top officers assistant secretaries or higher. On the other hand Kissinger has probably promoted more young officers to high positions than any of his recent predecessors. A highly emotional man who can erupt with anger at seeming trifles. Kissinger has already created a reputation with his capacity to blow up at subordinates He has also been thin-skinned about newspaper articles on several occasions complaining by phone to the writers. The public sees the other Kissinger.a charming, witty man whose brilliant expository skills have also impressed most diplomats and newsmen who have dealt with him. At the White House Kissinger had a penchant for secrecty and often kept his top aides in the dark. When he went over to the state department he found it hard to break this habit, and his closest associates complained about his reluctance to share information. In recent months officials have reported an increase in the flow. Moreover, the secretary, aware of criticism that he has travled too much, has promised that once he brings about a Syrian-Israeli troop-separation accord, he will try to limit his highly praised trips. But he already is talking about visits to Moscow, Western Europe, Africa and Latin America and few believe he will be able to ground himselt. Powdered milk dangerous MONTGOMERY, Ala.

Chief Counsel John Doar disclosed Thursday the committee intends to conduct a full investigation, including submitting written questions to Nixon, to determine whether there was criminal fraud in his 1969-1972 tax deductions for papers do- nated to the government. The joint committee on internal revenue taxation recently concluded the deduction was improper and the Internal Revenue Service assessed Nixon for in back taxes. But there has been no previous congressional effort to determine whether fraud was involved in the preparation of the returns. The tax matter takes its place along with the Watergate coverup, the activities of the White House "plumbers" unit, settlement of the ITT anti-trust case and political contributions by the dairy industry, Howard Hughes and Robert Vesco as the chief items on which the impeachment inquiry has settled. Doar submitted a status re- port to the committee Thursday listing 17 allegations that are no longer under investigation because there is insufficient evidence to support them. Most of them include allega- tions that the White House used executive agencies for political purposes, and two others deal with the impounding of congres- sionally-appropriated funds and the dismantling of the office of economic' opportunity. A decision on whether to keep the secret bombing of Cambodia on the list of possible impeachable offences will be made after the release, expected next week, of a Senate committee report on the subject, Doar said. The staff's recommendations on matters to be dropped were challenged by several members, and Chairman Peter Rodino (Dem. N.J.) said none ac- tually are being eliminated. It is just a matter of focusing the staff resources on matters of highest priorityt he said. Doar also ran into criticism for not moving faster on the investigation of Nixon's taxes. The joint committee staff re- port, issued April 3, noted the judiciary committee's responsibility to determine whether there was fraud. H42 CIIARUV LETHBRIDGE HONDA CENTRE 1117- 2nd AvcnueS.
