'THE WHITE IS CALLING' Magic words in Washington An analysis By JOHN BERBERS New York Times Service" WASHINGTON There is sa'd to be a high-level career official here who always stands up a: his desk immediately af- ter hearing five magic words: "fhe White House is calling." That the caller might be a presidential aide oi low rrnk makes little difference. The c.ilsr may be on a mission ior the president, and so great have been the pmrers of the presidency in recent years that his assistants are clothed wi'.h the ability to shake up almost anv department or agency of the executive branch. This explains to a great ex- tent how White House staff members were able to intimi- date and compromise high of- fj-is's in the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Central Inleiligence Agency and the state department. Ai the urging of John D. Ehrlkhman, then assistant to tl e president, Ibe s ate aeoarl- ment turned over 240 classified rocumsnts to E. Howard Hunt Jr., who allegedly used them to fabricate a implica in% the Kennedy administration in the death of South Vietnam President Diem in 1963. At the urging of presidential aides, CIA officials permitted t1 e use of agency facilities to set up a burglary of the office oi Dr Daniel Ellsberg's psychi- atrist. L. Patrick Gray, as acting FBI director, allegedly burned files ps.'tinsnt to the Water- gate case, again at the urging of White House aides. These incidents, and others riving the first Nixon term, followed a long trend of the concentration of power in a few score men around the presi- dent. George E. press sec- re a.j to President Johnson, discussed the development in "The twilight of the Presiden- published in 1970. trouble with the White House for anyone who is part of he said, "is that he picks up the and tells people to do some- trire. they v.srally do it. The heel click at the other end of tre wire will be audible the response however invalid will be prompt." According to Reedy, this breads arch, arrogance, and the White House as an ins'itution "provides camouflage for all ths- is psttv and nasty in hu- man beings, and enables a or a knave to pcse as Galahad and be treated with deference.'' For the young, Reedy be- lieves, the effect can be ticularly harmful. should be a flat rule.'5 he said, "that no one be per- en-er the of the White House until he is at leas' 40 ar.d has suffered ma- jor disappointments in life." For years, the departments and agencies have seethed with stories oi White House aides making outrageous or frivolous demands bv saying, "The presi- dent would like or "The is interested in this." The official on the other end has no way of knowing whether it is the president's or the aide's interest. By most accounts, the power of presidential aides has in- creased considerably under the Nixon administration. Author- ity jonce centered in the de- partments has been moved to the White House. Nixon has been more remote and less per- sonally in touch with the bur- eaucracy than other recent presidents. Under the leadership of H. R. Haldeman and Ehrlichman, tv.o top aides who have re- signed, presidential assistants were more aggressive in mov- ing against the agencies and departments. The entire government, it seined, under tight con- trol of the White House, which few dared challenge. The government has laws ana a.ions that delerm-ne to some degree the authority of various claciais in the execu- tive branch and procedures for handling documents and infor- mation. Certain officials with- in liie Wri e --lot'Se an.i cvLsiie it are cleared to handle classi- fied material and other mat- ters. __ But so broad are the presi- dent's powers that he gener- allv what he warns. It has not been unusual in recent years ior presidents to see con- fidential income tax files, FBI inves''satire reports and other sensitive materials. The offi- c'als v.ho have custody of these documents generally know -T'idi presidertial aides serve as conduits for this material and which do not. As a practical matter, all presidential aides serve as an extension of the presidency a-c. unless restrained by the president, can demand, and get, a great range of information and assistance from the civil servants under the president. Since the Watergate disclos- ures and the shake-up of the White House staff, however, changes have taken place. Only a career official said, "do I detect any pre Watergate arrogance of those around the White House."
