RERUBLIC REPUBLIC CITY MAIL ji-24 The Arizona Republic O Phoenix, Sat., June 3fl,1373 White Home and rivalry bind drug bureau, ex-chief says Associated Press WASHINGTON - Rivalry, ^confusion and White House intervention blunted the Nixon administration's drug control effort, John fi, Ingersoll said Friday after quitting as chief of the largest antidrug unit. Departing from his custom of defending administration policy, Ingersoll complained of rivalry among drug enforcement agencies and disruptive White House interference in the policies of his own unit, the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (BNDD). At President Nixon's order, the four agencies merge this weekend into the Drug Enforcement Administration (DBA). Later Friday, Attorney General Elliot L. Richardson designated John R. Bartels Jr. to serve as a caretaker administrator of the DBA. He said the a p p o i n t m e n t is "pending the choice of a permanent administrator." Bartels has been a deputy director of the office of Drug Abuse Law Enforcement (DALE). Ingersoll, a career law enforcement officer, said he would have been interested in heading the DBA if the White House had guaranteed a hands- off policy, but he learned that presidential ex-aides H. R. Haldeman and John D. Ehrlichman wanted him out and suspected it was because he resisted White House pressures. At a news conference, Ingersoll was asked to elaborate on the accusation of White House intervention: "There was no concerted effort to influence What I did, but by the same token, I don't think 1 was given any opportunity to influence per- sonnel.choice selections and so on," he said. "More than policy setting, it got into implementation of policy and how you should go about doing your job." Ingersoll said he felt his resistance was "one reason for my demise." In his resignation letter to Richardson, Ingersoll said he had no choice but to quit after he was told by former Atty. Gen. Richard G. Kleindienst last February that "unnamed White House officials did not intend to retain me after the drug control program was reorganized." He said he learned later that Haldeman and Bhrlich- man were responsible. Recalling the February meeting, Ingersoll said Kleindienst "initiated the conversation and said I probably ought to think about a change in my future. I asked him why and there was no response. He made it clear it was not his desire. Sure, I was upset." The Nixon administration, he said, fostered disruptive rivalry when it created the Office of Drug Abuse Law Enforcement in the Justice Department 18 months ago and appointed Myles J. Ambrose to head it. Previously Ambrose was customs commissioner during a period of intense rivalry between the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs and the drug investigation section of customs.

Mrs. Kavanaugh said at her home she will take legal action against Guy, who was senior officer at, the North Vietnamese prison camp called "the Plantation" where Kavanaugh was held. 3% ACRES OF SAGUAROS FOOTHILLS VIEWS 399 SAN TAN RANCHES • PHOENIX ONLY ..5% DOWN $AQ08 ~ Mr Mo.
