PiPPERT WASHINGTON -<UPI) - AH day the titans argued it: "Odes the king hire the right to enter • humble man's cottage without his consent? Or, specifically, did agents of President Niton nave a constitutional right on grounds of national security to break into a psychiatrist's office to obtain records about the emotional stale of Pentagon Papers defendant Daniel EUsberg? With a nationwide television audience and a hearing room of chastened spectators looking on, the men went at it: —Sen. Sam J. Ervin Jr., 76, honor graduate of Harvard law school, former presiding Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court, the Senate's foremost expert on constitutional law, and chairman of the Senate's « select Watergate investigating ( committee. —John J. Wilson, 73 years old on Wednesday, who went to law school at night and gained a reputation as One of the nation's top trial lawyers, who in 1952 argued against President Harry S Truman's seizure of the nation's steel mills. —Sen. Herman E. Talmadge, former governor of Georgia and member of one of his state's greatest political dynasties. —John D. Ehrlichman, 48, former real estate and land use lawyer in Seattle, Wash., former counsel and domestic affairs adviser to the President, and, the man over whom the argument was being waged. Ehrlichman has argued unwaveringly through two days in the witness chair at the Senate hearings that even though Watergate defendants G. Gordon Liddy and E. Howard Hunt Jr. were unwise in breaking into the office of Ellsberg's psychiatrist, they had a right to do so. Joseph Montoya The debate on the right of the President to commit burglary overshadowed the purpose of the committee's current.round of hearings—who was responsible for the bugging of the Democratic national offices at the Watergate complex on June 17, 1972, and who was responsible for trying to cover up the extent of the crime? The break-in at the psychiatrist's office took place on Labor Day weekend in 1971, about 60 days after the newspaper publication of thejlandmark Supreme Court test M00NUTE1 SALE!

Ervin, who. has been drawing applause whenever he enters the Senate Caucus Room, admonished the partisan audi a jab. otherwise illegal circumstances, in pursuit of foreign intelligence," Wileon said. "When we get to that point, the Fourth Amendment may have vanished from the scene." The Fourth Amendment Ehrlichman gave Ervin The former feared White House aide told Ervin, 28 years his elder, "Mr. Chairman, you SU res "the right of the people to lease. interrupted me.

The committee faced today what may be another step in one of the critical constitutional confrontations between the President and Congress in the history of the nation. The President was confronted with a deadline to answer a committee subpoena for tapes and other documents in his possession relating to the Watergate scandal. If he refused to provide them, as expected, the committee was expected to file suit in U.S. District Court for a declaratory judgment. This could lead to a against unreasonable searchesjspy ring or just an individual and seizures." It has been cited repeatedly by Ervin during the Watergate hearings. Talmadge, with characteristic emotionlessness and Georgian drawl, said, "You remember when we were in law school we studied a famous principle of law that came from England and is also well known in this promised, so that the President country, that no matter howiby the 24th of July knew that humble a man's cottage is that even the King of England can not enter without his consent." I'm afraid that has been considerably eroded over thef years, hasn't it?" Ehrlichmanj shot back. I "What we're talking about! kook or whether we were dealing with a serious penetration of the nation's military profile," Ehrlichman said. " ... You must also note that at this f time, the Strategic Arms! Limitation Treaty negotiation! documents had been com-j his negotiating position vs. the Russians in the SALT negotiations were known to the Russians ..." As the day wore to a close, WASHINGTON (UPI)-Sen. Daniel K. Inouye, D-Hawaii. finished questioning Watergate witness John D. Ehrlichman Wednesday and then was heard to whisper aloud "what a liar." Inouye apparently believed his microphone was off, but the barely audible remark could be heard by those listening closely to the nationally televised Senate hearings. Inouye denied he had said the words "what a liar" when he was questioned during a break in the proceedings. But when told his words had been picked up by his mike and recorded by UPI, he replied "Well, I guess I must have been speaking of myself." Samuel Dash, the chief counsel to the Senate investigating committee, was asked if the Inouye remark indicated partiality on the part of the committee. "The personal reaction of a particular senator doesn't indicate partiality or impartiality," Dash said. Wilson, Ehrlichman's lawyer,,here is an unauthorized entry)! theisaid that the 1968 Safe Streets Act, which was approved by Ervin's Senate Judiciary Committee, provided "a reservoir of power ... for the sake of permitting the President to do what would otherwise be a crime, to ( protect the nation against for-, eign intelligence ... j "There is no one in this! and burglarizing a man's premises who wasn't even involved in stealing the papers in the first instance," Talmadge said.
