IN NOW AT OFBI THURSDAY TILL, MflRflNJO WORLD OF SHOES 917A Shrth Sortft Covert CIA activities under increasing pressure By DAVID BINDER New York Times Service WASHINGTON Prompted by new disclosures of covert operations of the United States Central Intelligence Agency in Chile, a growing number of congressmen are demanding that such actions be curtailed or stopped altogether. The involvement of the CIA in subverting foreign governments deemed hostile to American interests has become fairly well known over the years the buying of voters, the arming of plotters, the infiltration of labor unions and all the other "black" arts of intelligence. The catalogue includes CIA activities in Iran, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Bolivia, Berlin, Albania, Greece, Italy, the Congo, Indonesia, and Indo- Chma What made the case of Chile different' The furor over the Chile operations of CIA may be related to the mood of the times marked by the end of the Watergate scandal and the strengthening of east-west detente. Both post-Watergate attitudes and the feeling that international tensions have eased appear to be conducive to the questioning of the reasoning behind covert intelligence operations. At the heart of the current debate is the question whether the United States should have at this phase in its history a 16.000-member intelligence agency, with an annual budget of million, functioning on a worldwide scale. Reduced to its most simple form, as expounded by Presi- dent Ford on Sept. 16. the United States is big in the intelligence field because the other side the Communists is big in it It is the logic also applied to the strategic- weapons race.

TONY TOBIN Nixon custody of tapes blocked WASHINGTON A federal judge issued an order Monday temporarily blocking the White House from giving former president Richard Nixon custody of his White House papers and tapes but allowing him to look at them in the meantime. The order by U.S. District Judge Charles Richey directed the White House to hold on to the papers at least until the broader questions of the legal issues are worked out, but at the same time directed it not to disclose any of the materials except under proper court order. Richey ordered that Nixon can have access to the mate- rials from his administration "for the sole purpose of pre- paring to testify in the Water- gate criminal trial" and that if he cannot physically come to Washington to look at the materials he can have copies made. Dean claims Mitchell approved break-in plan WASHINGTON (AP) Former White House counsel John Dean told the Watergate coverup trial today that former attorney-general John Mitchell had indicated he had approved the political intelligence plan that resulted in the 1972 break-in at Democratic party head- quarters in the Watergate building here. Dean testified this was when he met on March 28. 1973, with Mitchell and Jeb Stuart Magruder, deputy director of then President Nixon's re-election com- mittee. Dean described the meeting near the close of more than four days of questioning by prosecutor James Neal. Defence lawyers, beginning with John Wilson, counsel for H R Haldeman, former White House staff chief, were ready to begin their cross- examination of Dean. Following Wilson will be William Hundley, Mitchell's lawyer. Dean testified that at the March 28 meeting he turned to Mitchell and said: "John, I've never asked you what hap- pened. All I've been able to do was piece together the plan was approved." This was a reference to the political intelligence plan. He said Mitchell replied: "Well, John, that's pretty close. But we thought it would be two or three times re- moved." "Two or three times remov- ed from Neal asked. "From the (re-election) Dean responded. Dean said that two days later he decided to retain a criminal defence lawyer and that on April 8 he met in his lawyer's office in Rockville.
