B* Alten Evening Telegrajph Saturday, September 2, 1972 Democrats see 'Watergate' as part of plan By KEN ftEPFERT MIAMI (AP) - The break-in at Democratic national offices in Washington's Watergate complex was part of "a systematic plan to spy on the Democratic headquarters and steal their records," says State Atty. Richard Gerstein of Miami. Gerstein, a Democrat who has been investigating the June 17 break-in for two months, said in an interview Friday his probe has spurred federal investigators who would have preferred to "sweep it under the rug" until after the November presidential election. Meanwhile, in Washington, former Atty. Gen. .lohn N. Mitchell stopped answering questions Friday while giving a deposition in the Democrats' $1 million invasion-of-privacy suit stemming from the break-in. He said he cut off testifying on the advice of Kenneth Parkinson, a lawyer for the Committee for the Re-Election of the President. Gerstein, who says he is looking for violations of Florida law in connection with the break-in, commented on the affair after taking a sworn statement from a Miami commercial photographer who said he developed photographs of what appeared to be confidential Democratic documents one week before the break-in. Gerstein, up for re-election, said testimony by photographer Michael Richardson shows the break- in was "a concerted action, not just some kooks out on a frolic ... but a systematic plan to spy on the Democratic headquarters and steal their records." In his sworn statement to Gerstein, the 29-year-old Richardson identified two of the men who picked up the rushorder photos as two of the suspects in the Watergate breakin, Bernard L. Barker and Frank Sturgis. Richardson said he recognized the pair from newspaper pictures after their arrest in Washington a week later. After the arrest of the five men June 17, the law firm of Freed, Frank, Harris, Shriver and Kempelman reported that its suite appeared to have been entered on the night of May 15, but it said nothing was missing. Two members of the firm are Democratic vice President back from Tanaka talks By FRANK CORMIER SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (Ap) _ President Nixon is back from a mid-Pacific summit with new Japanese Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka that produced a $1.1 billion agreement to reduce the United States' trade imbalance. But since Japan receives about $3.8 billion more each year for its goods sold in this country than the Japanese pay for U.S. goods, the meetings between Nixon and Tanaka appear to have been more of a happening than a debate on substance. Presidential adviser Henry A. Kissinger suggested to newsmen as the Nixon party flew back to the Western White House Friday night that the major issue of the Hawaii summit was maintaining "a framework in which friendship is fundamental." Kissinger said that was what the summit talks were all about and "it would be foolish for us to get into tactical issues," political or economic Given the circumstances that Tanaka was meeting with Nixon near the site of Japan's 1141 attack that brought the United States into World War II, it seemed to some odd that th« victor in fact was appealing for economic help ftmrn vanquished- Tt» United States is not forgetting tfc tjrade imbalance.

"That may well tie in to all of this," Gerstein said when asked if the document Richardson described could have been taken from the law- firm. Richardson said Friday h? volunteered a statement on July 19 to FBI agents in Miami after recognizing the photographs of Barker and Sturgis and realized "1 was sitting on a bomb " "They (FBI agents) were very enthured over th^ news, 1 ' Richardson said, adding that they advised him he may be subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury in Washington.

Fischer won the series after Kus- sia's Boris Snassky resigned in the '21>t game. (AP \Virephoto) By ANDREW TORCIIIA REYKJAVIK. Iceland (AP) — World chess champion Hobby Fischer, his appetite for the game unsatisfied after defeating Russian defender Boris Sp'rissky in a seven- week, 21-game match, said he has not been playing enough chess. Fischer celebrated victory in his hotel room with champagne and more chess. Stil! analyzing the final game hours later, he said he thought Spassky may have resigned too soon.

What's r.o\:"" Fischer, \vlio had turned his inle quest into a one man crusade acainst the Russian grandmaster:; who have dominated the game for 35 years, said he wanted to play some more Russians. "I feel I haven't played enough chess," he said. "I definitely want to take on some more of these Russians if they arc willing to play me and if the money is right. "When the party begins, they know they'll get beaten again. They may not particularly want to play me," he said. Fischer stands to gel $156,000 in prize money for his 12i/ 2 _ 8'/2 defeat of Spassky that made him the first American to win the title. He said he may compete for the U. S. against the Russians in three weeks at t h e World Team Title Olympiad at Skopje, Yugoslavia. At the end, Spassky seemed too exhausted to struggle on. He made a weak move when the 21st game was adjourned Thursday and resigned by telephone to referee Lothar Schmid without showing up to play Friday. Fischer said he was stunned by the resignation. He said Spassky could have played on with hope of a draw. Schmid declared Fischer champion. Fischer smiled bashfully at the cheering crowd and walked off.
