WASHINGTON (AP) The Ellsberg break-in began as a carefully-nurtured operation supported by the CIA and ended as a crude, unsuccessful burglary, says testimony offered to the jury in the plumbers trial. Among the witnesses in the first day of testimony Friday were Dr. Lewis Ellsberg's psychiatrist and the victim of the illegal one of its principal planners, E. Howard Hunt. In his opening statement, prosecutor William Merrill said the Sept. break-in the wilfully arrogant act of men who took the law into their own hands because they thought they were above the law." He said the four defendants were guilty of a crime "against one of our most cherished the right to be free from an unlawful search The defendants are John Ehrlichman, until last spring among the closest of President Nixon's inner circle; and convicted Watergate conspirators G. Gordon Liddy, Bernard Barker and Eugenic Martinez. They are accused of violating Fielding's rights. A lawyer for Ehrlichman told the jury his client never unproved anything illegal. A lawyer for Liddy said the one-time FBI agent believed he acted with the authority of the president. And a lawyer for Martinez and Barker said the break-in was nothing more than an extension of more than 10 years' clandestine work for the CIA in the minds of his clients. Hunt testified he was hired July with the approval of Ehrlichman Within a few weeks he had joined the White House plumbers, an in- vestigative unit set up to close leaks of national security information to the news media. The other plumbers included Liddy. Ellsberg. who leaked the Pentagon papers study of the Vietnam war to the press, was at the time the subject of federal prosecution.

CALGARY (CP) Certain people tried to take advantage of the detention of the seven Canadians and Americans by Ethiopian guerrillas but the guerrillas never demanded any ransom, the external af- fairs department said Friday. A spokesman said several notes demanding money some as high as several million dollars had indeed been received but "they did not come from the authentic representatives of the Eritrean Liberation front." The spokesman said in a telephone interview from Ot- tawa that all parties involved in negotiations with the guerrillas, including Canwest, Tenneco Oil Co. of Houston. Tex.. Canadian. U.S. and U.N. officials "never con- sidered the notes authentic." Don Wederfort, 27. presi- dent of Canwest Aviation Ltd. of Calgary was released Thursday by guerrillas after three months as a captive and arrived in London today for a medical, checkup .and a reu- nion with his wife. He told reporters he feels himself to be in remarkably good condition after his ordeal. He said he was apparently released as a gesture of "good faith" by the guerrillas and as a sign that they wanted to negotiate for the release of other captives they still hold. Canadian officials making arrangements for Wederfort's brief visit here said he had brought no further demands by the guerrillas. Agreement not reached Important Statement The charges against Lakeview Bakery (Lethbridge) Ltd, all occurred on one day, March 22nd, 1974 during an un- usually busy period. Since March 22nd, 1974 the bakery has taken the following steps to insure such an occurrence can never happen again. 1. We have rented additional space to allow space and time to properly clean the premises. 2. We have hired additional staff as clean-up staff. 3. The Management makes regular checks of all facilities. The Lakeview Bakery (Lethbridge) Ltd. has taken every precaution to protect their product and hopes to have the continued support of the people of Lethbridge and District. CALGARY (CP) Agree- ment has still not been reach- ed between 18 workers who walked off their jobs three weeks ago demanding cost of living increases and better working conditions, and management of Firestone Tire and Rubber Co. who said the walkout is illegal. Management said the walkout is illegal because there is one year left in the current contract. Wederfort said he has been treated correctly and con- siderately by his captors, and that rations were split with other captives during his in- carceration- He lost about 30 pounds and suffered from "minor il- lnesses" during his captivity. Wederfort described how he was piloting a helicopter March 26 on a prospecting trip into the Eritrean highlands of Ethiopia. As part of the prospecting duties he was carrying out for the American company Tenneco. he landed the air- craft. Suddenly it was surrounded by men who turned out to be members of the E.L.F. They then took him away. WORDS GUARDED Wederfort was cautious in his words today because he apparently was worried about compromising the fate of otlier captives still held by the guerrillas. He is to see a medical specialist here for a complete physical cheHcup. Authorities said he might stay in London two or three days before returning to Canada. ATTENTION!
