REPUBLIC A-24 the Arizona Hcpu K epubllc Phoenix, Sat., June 30,19?3 White House and rivalry bind drug bureau, ex-chief says and international drug trafficking, leaving local offenses to state and local officials. He said the Ambrose operation Associated Press WASHINGTON - Rivalry, confusion and White House intervention blunted the Nixon administration^ drug control effort, John E. 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 oWer, 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 appointment 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 helearned that Haldeman a n d Ehrlichman wanted him out and suspected it was because he resisted White House pressures. At a news conference, In* gersoll 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 I was given any opportunity to influence personnel 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 Jold 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 Ehrlichman were responsible. : Recalling the F e b r u a r y meeting, Ingersoll said Kleindienst "initiated the conversation and said I probably ought to think about a change in my future. 1 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. • • Ingersoll said he believes federal drug enforcement should concentrate.oh national AsucKted PrMt |John Ingersoll announces his resignation as director lot the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, fa post he has occupied for six years. . [Suicide cancels charges against ex-POW Marine United Press International *' ri WASHINGTON — The Marine Corps said Friday -charges of prison-camp mis- ~ep n d u c t and collaboration Kwith the enemy against Ma- |rine Sgt. Abel L. Kavanaugh jfhave been nullified by the fypung ex-POW's apparent suicide. tf •' I The charges, filed by Air iForce Col. Theodore Guy of |Tucson, will not appear on |Kavanaugh's records, a Ma- slrine Corps spokesman said. I "A man's" innocent until *proven guilty," the spokes- frnan said. "Kavanaugh can't |be brought to; trial, so that's fthe end of it. As far as the |law is concerned, he is inno- jcent." •• .••--.-• | Nine other former POWs, fseven enl i s t ed men also charged by Guy and two officers charged by another ex- prisoner, are awaiting a Pentagon decision whether to bring them to court martial Kavanaugh was captured in April, 1968, and spent five years in prison camp. His widow, who is expecting her second child, said: "I blame Col. Guy and the Pentagon for his death. Without their insistent pursuing of these fictitous charges, my husband would be here today." Mrs. Kavanaugh, said'at her home she will take legal action against Guy, who was senior .officer at the North Vietnamese p r i s o n camp called "the Plantation" where Kavanaugh was held.
