' While Telling Story To Captors By RELMAN MORIN .TKRUffAEM (AP) ;-- Adolf C::hmann was cool and matter of fact--with one notable exception-during the.long .sessions when he .told hli story to his Israeli captors and a tape recorder, an in- ionned source said today. "He showed a little feeling when lie said he expects to get the H:*.th sentence," the Israeli informant reported. "I know I may face a sentence of death," said Elchmann in a recorded 'statement that was p -yed back Wednesday for the three-judge court'trying him on charges of mass murder of Europe's Jews. ' ~'I cannot claim mercy because I am not worthy of it," Elchmann cc:itlnued. "I'should have hanged myself In public so that- all the anti-Semites in the world would have had -these terrible events emphasized for them." "He was quite businesslike the rest of the time," the Israeli source reported, "but he seemed moved, a little emotional, when he read this." Seventy-seven cartons of tapes were'made! of the. long hours of Interrogation that followed Elch- mann's capture in Argentina last year. The prosecution Wednesday began playing, back excerpts at the trial, bringing into the record the 'former SS officer's own ver : sion of'the Nazis' "final Solution of the Jewish Problem"--meaning total annihilation of Europe's Jewry--and the part he played in it. The trial is in recess today while Israel celebrates its Independence Day. , . When the hearing resumes Friday, Atty. Gen. Gideon Hausner is expected to play tape record- ings · of Elchmann'a account of events in Hungary In 1944. Hausner told the court earlier Elch- mann was a key figure in the killing of 437,402 of the 800,000 Jews living in Hungary at the time. There are special reasons for focusing on the anti-Jewish action in Hungary! 1. Hausner said many Nazis were convinced by 1944 that defeat was inevitable, and that Eichmann and his lieutenants worked with particular speed to deport the Jews to death camps instead of abandoning the extermination program. 2. Hausner said Adm. Nicholas Horthy, head of the Hungarian government, opposed the deportations and tried to frustrate Eichmann. But Eichmann, the prosecutor said, "broke through all obstacles." .. 3.,Most important, he said Heln- rich Hlmmler, top man in the Gestapo, ordered the deportations and killings to stop but that Elch mann flouted the order and went ahead. Eichmann pictured him self in recording's played Wednesday as a subordinate who recoiled from his work but had to obey commands from his superiors. In another development,-the assistant defense counsel, Dieter Wechtenbruch, said he is flying to West Germany Friday in an cf fort to turn up witnesses to testify for Eichmann. "There are some witnesses," he said. "Some are free. Others are in jail, either awaiting trial or serving sentences." 'It was not known whether Is- lael would grant immunity to any such witnesses. Wechtenbruch indicated he hopes that safe-conduct will be guaranteed. Bishop Said In Argentine Embassy BUENOS AIRES, Argentina AP)--Rumors circulated here today that Roman Catholic Bishop Eduardo Masvidal'of the Havana archdiocese had taken asylum in ;he Argentine Embassy In the :uban capital and brought with ilm church treasures for safekeeping. Foreign Minister Diogenes Ta- wada told newsmen he had no nformatlon about the rumors as Argentina has no direct communication with' Havana.

Ma vy Cancels Maneuvers' WASHINGTON (AP)-The Navy has canceled a scheduled weekend exercise off the Florida coast after the White House announced President Kennedy would not attend. Kennedy had planned to watch the Navy flight and anti-submarine exercise from the carrier Independence Saturday afternoon and night. This was to have taken place in the Atlantic several hundred miles from .Cuba where anti- Castro rebels have launched an invasion.
