Not only was Nixon not informed by Kissinger In advance, the Secretary of State also chose to air the family linens in a foreign country — Austria —at a time when Nixon was hoping to leave Watergate behind and capture some complimentary headlines for himself. Nixon loyalists could not understand why Kissinger became so angry over questions about his truthfulness in Senate testimony about wiretaps of reporters and government officials. It was the same kind of thing Nixon has endured almost dally for two years, they said. Kissinger definitely was given the cool treatment on the first three days of Nixon's Middle East swing and had to take a backseat to the President among his newly found friends In the Arab world. But toward the end of the trip he began to emerge again, although still not In the limelight. "It's not his trip," explained a State Department official. One notable sign of Kissinger's mood was that during the early part of the journey, he did not come to kibbitz with reporters on Air Force 1 as he traditionally does. "He's mad at you," one White House aide told reporters. But later there was a softening of Kissinger's attitude and he did begin to talk to the press again.

MUSTARD : Reporters were visibly moved and many shed tears at an Israeli monument for the some six milljon Jews who died from Nazi tyranny In World War II when President Nixon visited the landmark to place a wreath and pay his tribute to the dead. White House staffers were also emotionally touched by the memories of those who had suffered. It was one of the few places Nixon visited outside of the regular official schedule. Otherwise, Pat Nixon did most of the sightseeing for the First Family on the Middle East swing. But with the hedge-hopping— ante day per country —Mrs. Nixon's own participation in public activities was much more limited than usual. She also seemed to have lost some of her verve for sightseeing with a train of reporters and cameramen. Mrs. Nixon has stayed away from reporters since the Watergate scandal heated up and did not appear to enjoy having them thrust upon her by circumstances. Inevitably reporters took advantage of the chance and asked Watergate questions. And Mrs. Nixon cooly kept them at bay by softly responding that > her family has "no problems and I know the truth."

PARADE ARMOUR VIENNA SAUSAGE Several of presidential aides were invited to all of the social activities which the President and Mrs. Nixon attended. But the First Lady's small staff was largely ignored by the President's top aides, who ran the show their own way. Oddly, the First Lady's hairdresser. Rita DeSantis, rode on Air Force 1 throughout the European and Middle Eastern trip although she was rarely summoned to the First Lady's cabin. But the First Lady's press secretary Helen Smith, who rates high with reporters in trying to keep them informed of Mrs. Nixon's activities, was shunted to the "backup" plane, often arriving with other white House lower eschelon aides two and three hours after the Nixon's had arrived in a country. Henry Catto, the new U.S. Chief of Protocol, was left out eyen more than some of Mrs. Nixon's staffers. Catto was assigned to a cargo plane and did not even arrive in time to do the honors when Nixon landed in Cairo. Nixon's hopes for a more peaceful situation in the Middle East were jarred when the Israelis blasted Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon before Nixon was even out of the Middle East. But if White House officials were em harassed by the violence so soon'in the aftermath of Nixon's peace mission, they did rj^t show it.

For decades Edwin "Buddy" Adolphson has been a familiar figure whenever there was disaster in the remote, mountainous terrain or giant surf of the Island of Oahu's north shore. The 57-year-old Adolphson, bearing hope and comfort in his old Jeep, has become an island legend In his own time. In the 30 years that Adolphson has been patrolling the north shore first as a policeman and now as a volunteer, he has saved hundreds of surfers and swimmers, rescued countless stranded hikers and snuffed out dozens of fires. Risking his life has become a way of life for Adolphson, who started rescuing when he was a teenager on a surfboard and saw his friends in trouble. Swimming out among sharks and huge surf to rescue a bather, keeping the victim afloat until a helicopter arrives, hanging on to sharp ledges in search of a missing hiker and singeing his clothing in a fire are all part of a day's work for Adolphson. "I have been so close to death so many times," he said. "But when I raised my hand to take the policeman's oath back in 1939,1 meant what I said. "I promised to protect life and property, but no one ever told me where to draw the line." So Adolphson, armed with a uniform, gun and radio In Oahu's rural north shore communities, started spending his own money.for rescue equipment to become a search and rescue operation in addition to his crime fighting activities. Since the area he was assigned to spanned many miles of beaches and mountainous. Jungle-like terrain, Adolphson decided the best way to carry out his self-appointed mission was by being mobile. Adolphson estimates he spent more $25,000 on his first Jeep, which eventually collapsed, and then a second one into a selfcon- tained llfesavingunit. "The vehicle carries four floodlights, an engine mounted. generator, chain saw, megaphone, winch, flares, rope, fresh water, resuscitator, and coffee maker," Adolphson said. "I'm equipped to monitor police, fire department, Coast Guard and citizens band radio networks. I also carry a stretcher and a motorized surf board." Adolphson went deeply Into debt to buy equipment and keep it in repair. The high cost of saving lives was way ahead of his p o 1 i c e m a n's retirement salary. Adolphson borrowed against his house and his car. But the one-man, volunteer, doit-yourself - search-and-rescue mission was grounded. For a month the Jeep that had become such a welcome sight to islanders in distress sat in a garage with the body coming apart and the doors falling off. Word of Adolphson's plight spread from the local citizenry of the north shore who worried about letting their children surf when Adolphson wasn't around all the way to the halls of the state legislature. When lawmakers learned how Adolphson had gone into debt and never asked a penny in return, they chipped in and came up with $520. Then donations started pouring in from grateful citizens, many of whom were saved by Adolphson. "Oahu wake up," wrote one man along with his check. SThe next person Buddy saves might be you. Or God forbid, me!" More than $2,000 was raised, enough to put Buddy and his Jeep back on the road again. With this vote of confidence behind him. Adolphson is more determined than ever to keep the north shore safe. BARBS 5 CONVENIENT LOCATIONS GIBSON DISCOUNT CENTER 036 W. 11 Hi STREET MIUVIUE AREA 2404 E. 5th STREET LYNN HAVEN 617 OHIO AVE.
