Pilots should check flaps ROME (AP) Actor Richard Burton said Wednesday that Winston Churchill "fascinated" him, but he still called the British wartime leader "a bogey man. who hated us. the mining class." Burton, from a Welsh mining family, said Churchill "ordered a few of us to be shot you know, and the orders were carried out." In a signed article in the English- language American published in Rome. Burton wrote: "I did not dislike Churchill. I loved him. He was a splendid and mischievous child but I hated the idea of what he represented." Burton published his Rome story after an article he wrote for The New York Times aroused protests in Britain. In the Times article, Burton, who portrays Churchill in a television program entitled The Gathering Storm, compared the British leader with Hitler, Stalin and Atilla the Hun. In Wednesday's story, Burton said he had not seen his first article, but added: "I will not withdraw one word I wrote about Churchill." Burton added: "For six weeks I became Sir Winston. My arrogance and disregard oi anybody else reached the heights of ab- surdity and when I wrote the article I was Winston Churchill writing about himself in one of his 'black dog' moods." The actor said his regret is "that I may have caused pain to the splendid Lady Churchill, but I think, little as I know her, that she will understand." Next year. Burton said, he plans to lec- ture at Oxford University "about the madness of great men" and "of corrupted greatness" including that of Churchill and Stalin. Burton also called Churchill "a greatly corrupted great saying that if Bri- tain had such a leader at this time "I would come back and live in Britain, despite its vile climate, and pay taxes like everybody else and if necessary sweep the streets."

WASHINGTON (AP) John Mitchell, former attorney-general of the United States, testified Wednesday that he never approved plans to tap Democratic party of- fices in the Watergate building, and said his former deputy was probably the man who gave the go-ahead.

Firemen back on job WASHINGTON (AP) John Rhodes, Republican leader in the U.S. House of Representatives, said Wednesday there is no doubt that Nelson Rockefeller would have conflicts of interest in public office, but this alone should not keep him from becoming vice-president. Rhodes told a house com- mittee that Rockefeller already has demonstrated as New York governor that he has the integrity to resolve conflicts in favor of the public interest rather than the Rockefeller family wealth. "He's got a conflict of inter- est. He may have many con- flicts of Rhodes testified. "But a conflict of interest is not necessarily dis- abling." Chairman Peter Rodino said the committee hopes to get specific details next week on what those conflicts would be before it concludes hearings on Rockefeller's con- firmation as vice-president. He said the committee should vote the following week and that the full House could vote on Rockefeller's confirmation the week before Christmas. The Rockefeller nomination has won un- animous committee approval in the U.S. Senate. Rhodes told the committee that since Rockefeller's conflict of interest is so clear, there is little need for an investigation into the entire Rockefeller family's wealth as some members have proposed. He said it should be suf- ficient for Rockefeller to make full disclosure of his financial interests so that the press and public would be able to judge whether any decision he made favored those interests rather than the public's. physicians report to Judge John Sirica on whether former president Richard Nixon is healthy enough to testify at the trial. Mitchell replied to each question by either denying Neal's accusations or saying he had no memory of dozens of events testified to by other witnesses. However, at one point he admitted that he kept silent about prior espionage plans in order to avoid damag- ing Nixon's reelection efforts in 1972. "I ask you if you didn't par- ticipate in the Watergate coverup and White House said Neal. "You allowed perjury to go on, knowing it was perjury. You testified falsely before a grand jury. You assisted in participating in the payment of defendants to buy silence. "You did all this because you wanted to keep the lid on to ensure Mr. Nixon's re- election as president." Mitchell, 61, replied, "I ac- cept none of your premises." Mitchell said he never told anyone about Watergate bur- glar G. Gordon Liddy's pro- posed political intelligence plan which included illegal wiretapping, prostitution and kidnapping. He said he never gave his approval and always assumed that the plan had been scrapped until the original Watergate break-in of June 17, 1972. Mitchell named Jeb Stuart Magruder, his former deputy, as the man who probably gave permission to Liddy to go ahead.

Recreation ministers want more say in LIP projects Saskatchewan tarring said in store for Lang Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA The day will come when Justice Minister Otto Lang will be "tarred and feathered" by Saskatchewan voters and run out of that prairie province, Jack Horner, Progressive Conser- vative MP for Crowfoot Alberta, predicted in the budget debate. His warning was made after hearing Mr. Lang tell the Commons and the Western provinces that the Trudeau government was prepared to move quickly if the province governments' attempted to avoid federal taxation by socializing their industries. Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau told the house Wednesday that the justice minister was only sounding a warning that Ottawa could act if it so desired. He pointed out that his minister had only said it was possible. The prime minister was responding to New Democratic Party Leader Ed Broadbent who said it was clear that Mr. Lang now "strongly favoured" taxation of provincial crown cor- porations. Mr. Trudeau objected to this interpretation. He said the NDP leader was putting words in the minister's mouth. Mr. Broadbent persisted and enquired if Mr. Lang was stating government policy. The prime minister said the minister was only saying it was "possible" for Ottawa to tax provincial crown cor- porations. "I support him in added Mr. Trudeau. Mr. Broadbent asked if Ot- tawa would extend the courtesy of prior consultation with the 10 provinces before taking such drastic steps. Mr. Trudeau said if the provinces consulted Ottawa before nationalizing their in- dustries his government would return the courtesy. Earlier in the debate Mr. Lang said it is the considered opinion of the federal govern- ment that it could tax a provincial crown corporation. The fact that Ottawa had not done so in the case of utilities such as power and telephones "is not a sign of the lack of constitutional power to he added.
