LISBON, Portugal (AP) About 300 young demonstrators from the extreme left staged the first public protest against Portugal's new government Saturday over the arrest of a Maoist-line editor. The marchers called for the release of Jose Luis Saldanha Sanches, 29, arrested Friday after publishing an article calling on soldiers and sailors in Africa "to desert en masse with your arras." Sanches was held in a military fort, presumably for violating the military code. The arrest was the first of a leftist since the new center- left government came to power after overthrowing the old rightist dictatorship six weeks ago. It brought on the first public confrontation between the government and extreme left groups blamed by the government and President Antonio de Spinola for pushing the country toward anarchy. The demonstrators waved red banners in a peaceful and others on the ground that they violated his constitutional rights. A high-level White House source acknowledged that Haig had served as a liaison man between Kissinger and the FBI on the wiretaps, but added. "He only did what he was told to." At the time the wiretapping began, in May, 1969. Haig was a colonel assigned to the security council. Kissinger has repeatedly denied that he "directly" initiated the wiretapping program and insisted that the idea to do so origniated at a . White House meeting he at- tended on May 9, 1969, with President Nixon and J. Edgar Hoover, the late FBI director. The Times' sources, in a series of recent interviews, made the following points: »· There was no such White House meeting on May 9,1969. FBI files show that Hoover dictated a memorandum on that day describing a telephone conversation with Kissinger who was then with the President at Key Biscayne, Fla., about information leaks to newspapers and their peril to foreign policy. ; The FBI f i l e s also cast stro" a -ioubt on Kissingers assertion to the Senate panel that "my role was limited to ' supplying names" of '.hose with special clearances who had access to leaked material. Three of the first four officials who were wiretapped by Kis-. singer's office in May, 1969, did not have access to the se- Watergate mitted the President's lawyers to claim that some of the material was not relevant. But probably the greatest potential for delay would be any move to call President Nixon as a witness. That was made more likely by the disclosure t h a t he had been named an unindicted co-conspirator. It also almost certainly would be resisted by Nixon. Also Saturday: · Some of the Republicans who lost special congressional elections this year and are trying again in the fall say they will stay independent of the White House this time. · Whether Rodino can meet the mid-July schedule depends in good part on a committee decision two weeks hence on how many witnesses to call. The committee has spent the last three weeks and will spend two more behind closed doors examining evidence as- sembled by its staff on the President's involvement, or lack of it, in Watergate and other matters. At the conclusion of that presentation it will decide if it needs to call witnesses. Rodino wants to limit witnesses to those necessary to fill vital gaps in the evidence and to resolve contradictions. He takes the view that the committee is not conducting a trial but an inquiry to determine whether there is cause to send the issue to the Senate for trial. Further, the chairman sees no point in calling a long string of witnesses ,vho have told their stories under oath before the Senate Watergate committee or elsewhere, because they wouldn't be likely to change their testimony and thus be subject to perjury charges. Haig crets leaked. Informed of these assertions, the high-ranking White House official said: "Those wiretaps were justified because of extremely serious national security leaks. "Anyone who claims otherwise is not filled in." "The fact that people get upset because of some other things that came out in the taps is totally irrelevant," the official said. · MEMBERS of the House Judiciary Committee, which is conducting the impeachment inquiry, said Thursday after staff briefings on domestic surveillance that the FBI wiretaps had not provided any evidence of national security leaks but had picked up many items of personal information and private political beliefs. Such material was provided to the White House, the congressmen said. In one case, the Times's sources said, a wiretap was authorized in 1970 on Helmut Sonnenfeld, then a top Kissinger aide, because of concern about his politics expressed by H.R. Haldeman, then the White House chief of staff. The sources said it was the second such tap on Sonnenfeld, who is now serving with Kissinger in the State Department. Kissinger has stood by his Senate testimony despite such assertions and despite published reports that the edited transcripts of White House tape recordings show that President Nixon said last year that "Henry asked that it be done." After telling of the alleged presidential meeting authorizing the taps in May, 1969, Kissinger testified that his function had been l i m i t e d to supplying lists of those with clearances and receiving "some" FBI reports on the wiretaps in existence. After May, 1970, Kissinger said, Haldeman assumed the dominant role, and Kissinger's office was only occasionally in touch with William C. Sullivan, the bureau official in charge of the wiretaps. However, the sources said, FBI documents show that Haig.maintained close contact with Sullivan until Feb. 8, 1971, when he ordered the last eieht tans turned off. 'My Duty' side with Congress, which is deliberating his impeachment." "I happen to think that what I am doing is my job," he said. "I consider it my duty to try to head off deadlock and to seek a reasonable and prompt resolution of the nagging Watergate issues that is sapping 'he valuable time of our elect- ad officials, and political strength of our nation. "Why is it so surprising," he said, "that sometimes I voice the viewpoint of the legislative branch of which I was part for a quarter of a century and at other times see things much the same way as the chief executive who chose me, my friend for the same span of two decades and a half?" · "IN ALL those years I have never seen a controversy in which one side was all wrong and the other 100 per cent right," Ford said. "Nor have I seen a human being who was totally good or altogether bad." He repeated the philosophy he stated at his vice presidential c o n f i r m a t i o n hearings that "truth is the glue that holds governments together, and compromise the oil that makes governments go. "So long as I can contribute to the c l i m a t e of t r u t h and reason in this country," he said. "I will remain my own man, fly my own course, and spiik my own convictions." ,-f* Labor, Management Inflation Panel Urged WASfflNGTON-ltf)- President Nixon was urged by congressional Democrats Saturday to b r i n g labor and management together so they could form, on their own, a voluntary inflation control policy. The proposal was aired by House assistant majority leader John J. McFall of California, designated by Democratic leaders to deliver a na- t i o n w i d e r a d i o reply to Nixon's recent speech on the economy. 1-64 who had been driving in the westbound side." Miss Groom said the doctor confirmed Cook was dead, and told the group to move back from the smoking wreckage. Just as Miss Groom and her friends had walked a safe distance from the crash site, the plane exploded, she said. The plane crash is being investigated by the Cabell County sheriff's department. "Five years of progressively deteriorating economic management have fueled the inflationary forces which now rage throughout our economy." McFall said. The President, he said, "could do more, and. . .in a way that would not require legislation or any formal government process at all." "The President should invite labor and management to form, on their own, a wage- p r i c e v o l u n t a r y committee. . .Members of the public should also be invited to participate. "In this way all parties would be talking together and working together to solve a big problem that no one can handle alone -- working together to beat inflation," he said. McFall said also that "the uncompromisng tight. money policy of the Federal Reserve" should be re-evaluated so that "in seeking to throttle inflation we do not also choke off economic recovery." march through the center of the capital as scores of people watched silently.
