(AP) — A hearing oh a paralyzed ex- cohvict's $2 million damage .suit was in 'recess today after . testimony; from the man who salcl he inflicted the paralyzing wound. i,j ' James B. "Slicker" Davis testified Monday that he meant to .kjll fellow Parchman state prison innate William H. Boga^'Jr; Hn 1972 when he stabbedihini in : the spine. ' But he fcajd his knife broke off in Bogard's back and he was unatplijtb stab again. Bo- gar'd lived but was paralyzed from the 'waist down. He is suing former prison officials and others for damages. The hearing will be resumed Wednesday, in U.S. district court. Bogafd's side is expected to conclude its testimony soon and the defense is expected to follow with several days of testimony. Bogard claims former Parchman Supts. John Allen Collier and Tom Cook and others did not act to protect inmates. The defendants argue that Parchman's conditions were beyond their control. Davis said he decided to kill Bogard after Bogard told a camp sergeant that Davis was violating prison rules by having a sewing machine in the "cage" or inmate living area. Davis, who said he had been imprisoned in Louisiana and at the Ft. Leavenworth federal penitentiary, said weapons were available to inmates at Parchman and at the other prisons he had known. He said that most Parchman inmates had weapons and that periodic shakedowns did not prevent inmates from arming themselves. From mid-1967 to mid-1968, the world's population increased daily by an average of 180,000 persons. EARLH.YATES Funeral service for Earl H.

Ford confirms CIA acted against Allende WASHINGTON (AP) - President Ford has confirmed that the CIA acted against former Chilean President Salvador Allende as a Senate committee considers whether to pursue charges it was misled about those activities. A Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee staff report recommends action against former CIA Director Richard M. Helms and three other officials for sworn testimony minimizing the CIA activity, congressional sources say. The report was scheduled for consideration by the full committee today. There were conflicting accounts whether the report recommends perjury investigations, contempt of Congress charges or some combination of the two. The report also was said to be critical of Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger for testifying there was no U.S. involvement in the bloody coup in which Allende died last year, but saying nothing about the previous CIA activity. Sen. Frank Church, D-Idaho, chairman of the subcommittee for which the report was prepared, refused to give details but said the full committee would take up both the propriety of the CIA activities and officials' truthfulness about them. "Sworn testimony before my subcommittee was at variance with what has been disclosed," Church said in a telephone interview Monday night. "We now learn there is no difference between American policy and Soviet policy in subverting foreign governments," ho .-xiul. "1 hud always thought ,hf United Stales stood for doubt in his mind that there was no U.S. involvement in Chile's coup. But he confirmed that the CIA supported Allende's opposition in the 1970 elections. "It is a recognized fact that historically, as well as presently, such actions are taken in the best interest of the countries involved," the President said. Ford said he would not judge whether such activity is permitted by international law. He said he was reliably informed that Communist countries "spend vastly more money than we do for the same kind of purposes." Ford said the CIA activity was in response to what he said was an effort by Allende, a Marxist, "to destroy opposition news media, both the writing press as well as the electronic press, and to destroy opposition political parties. "The effort that was made in this case," Ford said, "was to help and assist the preservation of opposition newspapers and electronic media and to preserve opposition political parties. "I think this is in the best interests of the people in Chile, and certainly in our best interests," Ford said. Ford said he will meet with congressional committee 1 " on whether they want any changes so that Congress as well as the President are fully informed and included in reviewing such covert operations.
