The source told The Associated Press that FBI summaries of the material overheard on the taps were hand-carried to the While House and delivered to the President and lo Henry A. Kissinger. The taps were begun in May 1969, and in June 1970 the FBI was ordered to deliver the summaries to H.R. Haldeman, then White House staff chief, rather than lo Nixon and Kissinger. then the President's national iccurity adviser. The wiretaps, placed on 13 administration four newsmen officials and In an effort to discover the source of leaks of; classified information, were an issue at confirmation hearings on Kissinger's nomination to be secretary of state. They cropped up again when the House Judiciary Committee's impeachment staff began presenting evidence in closed session on domestic surveillance activities of the Nixon administration. Some committee members said they were given documents that showed Kissinger initiated wiretaps. Kissinger responded at a news conference in Salzburg, Austria, Tuesday that "innuendoes which now imply that new evidence contradicting my testimony (before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee) has come to light are without foundation." He urged that committee to rcoren hearings on the matter and threatened to resign if the issue is not resolved. Within hours, the Washington Post published an FBI memorandum dated May 13, 1973, which said: "It appears th.it the project of placing electronic surveillance at the request of the White House had its beginning in a telephone call to Mr, J. Edgar Hoover on May 9, 1969, from Dr. Henry A. Kissinger." But the source interviewed by The Associated Press said his knowledge of Ihe wiretapping program seemed fo agree with Kissinger's version--that Kissinger basically had a passive role, p r i m a r i l y naming i n d i v i d - uals who had access to leaked material. The source said that on May 10, I960, the day after the Hoo-i ver-Kissingcr telephone call de-' scribed in the FBI memo, Alexander M. Haig Jr.. then Kissinger's deputy at the White House, met with William C. Sullivan, an assistant director of the FBI. Haig told Sullivan he was requesting wiretaps on behalf of "high authority" in the White House. The source said Haig never identified the high authority or mentioned Kissinger's name. Neither mentioned the Hoover-Kissinger telephone conversation. From lime to lime. Haig would call Sullivan and request that another individual IH placed under surveillance or he would order that an existing wiretap be discontinued.

Kissinger told the Foreign Relations Committee lhat beginning in the summer of 1970 "nil these reports went to Mr. Haldeman's office and not to nine." From then on, he said, he re- .civeil only those reports Sullivan said contained "information of sufficient gravity." In a s t a t e m e n t issued May 22, 1973. Nixon said that at a lime when the administration was engaged in sensitive foreign policy negotiations "news accounts appeared in 1969, which were obuously based on leaks--some of them extensive and detailed--by people having access lo the most highly clas sified security materials."

For Nixon's arrival from Austria Wednesday, the Egyptian government turned, out huge crowds to cheer the i\v presidents as they took the seven-mile drive from Cairo's in- ernational airport to the Kub- beh Palace. Official estimates of the welcoming crowd ranged from hundreds of. thousands to 2 million. They screamed, they chanted and they waved srgns reading "God Bless Nixon." though some spelled it "Nikson." A few tried unsuccessfully to break through the police lines to touch the visiting President, TEMPERS ENTHUSIASM Sadat tempered the enthusiasm a bit with his toast at the state dinner in the garden of the Kubbch Palace. He told the 600 guests the cease - fire arranged w i t h American help between the Arabs and the Israelis are precious and important, but they are not enough. He warned that if there are to he no future misunderstandings, it must be realized that a just peace in the Middle East depends almost entirely on a settlement of the Palestinian quesiun. Signaling strongly that the United States must face up to this "crux of the whole problem," Sadat declared: "There is no other solution on the road to a durable peace. 1 ' The Egyptian leader said Nixon's visit signifies a change in the traditional American policy of virtually unqualified support for Israel. "We welcome this change, with all its political and psychological significance," be said. But he added that *'we are facing a turning point" that will determine if cease-fires can he turned into real peace --and that will be accomplished only by a redress of tbe wrongs done the Palestinian nation by Israeli aggression. RINGING PHRASES Nixon in response praised Sadat in ringing phrases but gave no answer to his bid for support of the Palestinians. He said, "I did not come . . ; with ready-made solutions for these complex problems, some of which go back over many years" and which require concentrated and probably lengthy efforts to overcome. However, he pledged that 'the United States will play a Dositive role" in finding a solution. Nixon also made no comment on a second point raised by Sadat: That Egypt, "through peaceful means or by might," is going to regain all the Egyptian territory occupied by Israel in the 1967 war. Instead Nixon spoke of Sadat's major leadership in the region and praised him as a man who can move beyond the problems of his own country in Lhe interest of peace.

Senators Sponsor Resolution Praising Secretary Of State WASHINGTON (AP) -- Thir:y-nine senators are co-sponspr- nÂ£ a Senate resolution praising Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger as a patriotic American "whose integrity and veracity are above reproach." The bipartisan group includes !our members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which Kissinger has asked to determine whether he lied last September about his role in na- ;icmal security wiretapping. Kissinger said this week that ic will resign if attacks on his integrity are not cleared up. "I certainly hope he doesn't resign," Sen. John Sparkrnan, D-Ala., said today. Spark-man, a senior member of the committee, was one of the initial co-signers of a handwritten resolution of confidence in 'Kissinger presented to the Senate Wednesday by Sen. James B. Allen. D-Ala. Kissinger told the committee ast September his role In the wiretapping of government officials and newsmen was limited o identifying persons with access to information of the tvpa leaked. However, news reports have told of a larger Kissinger role in the wiretapping. Sen. Barry Ooldwaler, R- Ariz.. said Wednesday that The Washington Post committed an "act of treason" in printing secret FBI documents that con- radict Kissinger's version of the wiretapping matter. Also Wednesday, a f o r m e r Kissinger aide tiled suit against him. Nixon and other officials, accusing them of ordering illegal wiretaps on his telephone. The s u i t filed by Anthony I,ake alleges top memhers of the administration ordered installation of "electronic devices and surveillance equipment" on his telephone after he resigned from the National Security Council staft in 1970.
