(TIMESphoto by Chuck Cunningham) Along With Four Associates Greek Government Exiles Former Dictator ATHENS, Greece (AP) -Former dictator George Papadopoulos and four ot his closest associates have been arrested and exiled to a remote part of plotting Greece on charges of to . regain power, the . government announced today. The announcement said those arrested with Papadopoiilos were his former deputy premiers, Stylianos Patakos and Nicholas Makarezos; one of the hard-line ministers in his regime, loannis Ladas; a n d , the former chief ot Hie central intelligence agency, Michaetl Roufogalis. Authorative sources said the five -men were taken to the small island of Kea, about GO miles southeast of Athens. The government's announcement said Papadopoulos and the other four "undertook conspiratorial activity, creating anxiety and the conditions con ducive to the disturbance of public peace and order,", at the time of upcoming parliamentary elections. MORE CHARGES LIKELY The elections -- Greece's first in more than 10 years -have been scheduled for Nov. 17 by the reform regime of Premier Constantino Caramamis. The announcement also indicated that more charges wil probably be filed against the five ·men. It said their con finement made it impossible for them to escape from Greece while the leaders of the military dictatorship are being in vestigated. The government announced Tuesday that Papadopoulos has been under house arrest for the last three weeks "for making conspiratorial moves." There have been persistent reports that leaders of the ousted mil" ary regime were plotting to make a comeback. Since his overthrow 'by another military junta a year ago. ·apadopoulos had been living quietly in the seaside villa 50 miles from Athens that he ren- ted from shipping magnal Aristotle Onassis. The jailed men, all forme army officers, were "the chie conspirators in the colonels coup in April 1967 that ende parliamentary democracy Greece. SPOOLS OF RED TAPE The wonders of modern technology have not, as yet, graced the federal court, clerk and attorney's offices at the impressive new Federal Office Building in Fayetteville. One of those spools of red tape, freely distributed oft and by Uncle Sam, found its way into the operation and now those three offices are without telephone service. It seems in all the excitement over moving new offices into a new building somebody forgot -- or nobody remembered -- to acquire the proper appropriation for telephones. So, for the time being, you either have to go to the new office building or call some other office there, as the f e d e r a l switchboard will suggest, and hope that some kind soul w message over office. ll carry the to the next FHS Observes Homecoming Fayetteville High School observing its 22nd annua Homecoming Week.

Dean III testified at the Wa- ergate cover-up trial today hat in 1972 -and 1973 he made ersonal use of $4,850 with- rawn from a 5350,000 secret Vhite House fund.

Dean testified in detail before he Senate Watergate com- -nittee about his personal use of money from the White House und. Its significance in the rial is how it affects the jury's pinion of his character and onesty. ' CROSS-EXAMINATION Under cross-examination today, Dean testified that $15,200 n cash was delivered to his of- ice by White House aide Gordon Strachan. Dean told the jury that, on Oct. 12, 1972, the eve of his honeymoon, he took out $4,850, part )I which was spent on the trip and part of which was used: for over the next six months. Wilson repeatedly -questioned Jean about the propriety of-us- ng the funds without advising anyone at the ,White House. "For a period. of six months p ou used money that didn't.-be- ong to you, : didn't you?" Wilson saked. Dean: "Yes, sir," Dean's blonde wife, Maureen, vas present in the courtroom as he described the use of the 'unds. The former White House counsel acknowledged · that although he placed a $4,850 check written to cash in his office safe with the balance of the iinds, there was not an ade quate balance in his checking account to cover that amount.

NIXON MAY TESTIFY Nixon has been subpoenas by defendants Haldeman an John D. Ehrlichman, and Mil ON P.tGE TWO) Justice Department Crackdown White-Collar Crimes Probed WASHINGTON (AP) -- Federal prosecutors say they're digging into more white-collar crimes than ever in support of a Justice Department crackdown )on corruption in corporate boardrooms and public offices. "I think push said everybody has the and it's high time,' Southern prosecutor whose comments were echoed by a score of other U.S. attorneys interviewed about the department's recent emphasis on investigating fraud, embezzlement, political kickbacks and similar crimes^ Several asked not to be identified by name. The prosecutors said they're anxious for the drive to continue although the complex and time-consuming investigations strain their limited -manpower. And some are upset with what they consider light treatrnent of w h i t e-collar criminals by judges and juries. The U.S. attorneys are pressing Congress and the Ford administration for more money to hire more lawyers for those investigations and other duties in civil and criminal cases. Meantime, many prosecutors say they're prodding state and local authorities to take .over the prosecution of such routine cases as drug violations and auto thefts to free more of their own time for corruption probes. The campaign was born out of the kickback investigation of former Vice President Spiro T. Agnew and the Watergate scandals which shook public confidence in government and especially in the Justice Department, As part of a bid to regain public support for the department, Atty. Gen. William B. Saxbe has promised fair prosecution of the rich and poor alike and urged harsh prison sentences for white - collar crooks. Some prosecutors said the Agnew and Watergate cases gave them the public support they needed to indict prominent individuals without suffering from accusations that their investigations were politically motivated, "The Agnew case indicated two things to us -- it's possible to crack these cases, and the public damn well wants us to," said Dean C. Smith, U.S. attorney in Spokane, Wash. The prosecutors were unanimous in appealing for more money to hire more lawyers handle investigations of white collar crime. "We can't possibly prosccut every crime committed, bu right now the emphasis is o white-collar crime," said on U.S. attorney. "I'm finding a increasing determination to de fer to local prosecutors on number of cases so we can g into the white-collar cases." Despite the department em phasis, some prosecutors ar upset that judges continue I treat white-collar crimina' leniently. "We spend $100,000 of th taxpayers' money to build case and then the guy gets con current sentences of thre months in prison. I'm not hap py with that," complained on prosecutor, (AP Wlrephoto) LEADS CROSS-EXAMINATION ,, .Wilson, right, with client Haldeman, is seeking io discredit Dean's character .before jury leppling Up Campaign Ford Calls Democratic Win Peace Threat WASHINGTON (AP) -- Pres- dent Ford; stepping up his per- onal- campaign for Republican andidates, is arguing that ' a ig Democratic election victory ould threaten the peace of the · ' · ' ' , . this dire pic- .vorld. .

' '· Soviet Construction, Radar Developments Puzzling U.S. WASHINGTON (AP) -- The] The 1972 interim agreement United States is asking Russia on strategic offensive weapons orbids the construction of any about some puzzling construction and radar developments to make sure they do not violate the nuclear arms limitation agreement, administration sources say. These sources stressed there is no evidence of any Soviet cheating but that "we are approaching the Russians on cer- :ain ambiguities, certain things ;hey are doing." In recent months, U.S. re photo . connaissance satellites reportedly have picked up graphic evidence that the Russians are building something that looks as though it could be new ICBM silos. Sources also said the United States is asking the Russians about signs that they are developing a new mobile radar thai some experts think could be used in connection with the Soviet anti-missile system. Presumably Secretary ol State Henry A. Kissinger will discuss the matter with the Russians during his Moscow talks. additional launching silos -for intercontinental ballistic missiles beyond those in place, or Deing built as of July 1, that year.

"They say it is for.command and control," he added, indicating the United States already has had some discussions with the Russians. . There is nothing in SALT agreement fo bar new underground bunkers for controlling the Soviet missile force. The 1972 U.S.-Soviet treaty limiting , anlimisile systems states specifically that "each party undertakes not to develop, test, or deploy ABM systems or components which are sea-based, air based, space based,'or mobile land based." There was some opinion that the .new radar is designed! to improve Russian anti-aircraft defenses, rather than the Soviet ABM system. 1
