The disclosure -caused U.S. District Judge John Sirica to say the White House should voluntarily turn over all sub- poenaed tapes and materials or the court should take custody of all material under subpoena and put it under 24- hour guard. He gave the White House until Monday to respond. The tone obliterates part of a conversation between Presi- dent Nixon and his former chief of H. R. on June three days after the break-in at Democratic party head- quarters in the Watergate of- fice building. J.
