William G. Hundley reminded Dean that he had testified at the trial about a long telephone conversation he had wilh Mitchell on June 22, 197Z, in which he .reported on the progress of the FBI Investlgalion ol the Watergate breajtin. In his second day of cross-examining Dean, Hundley noted that Dean never mentionect the Mitchell conversation in his Watergate committee testimony.

Nixon Returns To Hospital LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - 'ormer President Richard M. Vixon, facing possible surgery, las re-entered the hospital here Because home treatment for his phlebitis condition proved, ineffective, his doctor says. Nixon limped slightly- but was unassisted as he walked hrough a rear service entrance o be admitted Wednesday night to Memorial Hospital Medical. Center for the second ime in three weeks. A spokesman for the hospital in this coastal city bordering Los Angeles said the former presidest vas expected to be released by .he end of the week. BY CAR Nixon apparently made the 50-mile trip from his San Clemente home to the hospital by car. There had announcement that he was re- ;urning to the hospital. Jack Weiblen, hospital vice president said Nixon was brought in after dark to reduce publicity. "He covets his privacy," Weiblen said of Nixon, who resigned as president last Aug. 9. Dr. John C. Lungren, Nixon's longtime personal physician, said Nixon was taken to the hospital after drugs proved Ireating inflamed'veins in Nixon's left leg. "For the past few days oral anli-coagulalion medicalion has been inadequate," Lungren said in a statement lo newsmen late Wednesday night. He said a diagnostic radiology test called a venogram had been performed on the 61- year-old former president after his arrival and showed a "near total occlusion or blockage of blood flow" in the area of Nixon's left thigh. ; dorsed Israeli Arab lands occupied in the 1967 war and said Egypt would permit no bargaining over the right of the Palestinians to self- determination. "But between these two principles it is our right to preserve and maintain freedom of movement, and we do hope this stand will be adopted b y - o u r brothers. These two positions are not open to discussion," he told Ihe Egyptian People's Assembly. SADAT'S APPROVAL Kissinger, during his recent visit to the Middle East, won Sadat's approval for his proposal that the Arabs and Israel try 'or a gradual advance toward a peace settlement. The American secretary urged that'the next step be separate negotiations between Israel and Egypt, Syria and Jordan f o r another Israeli wilhdrawal from some of the occupied territory. The draft resolution which Syrian Foreign Minister Abdelhalim Khaddam put before the other Arab foreign ministers demanded total Israeli wilhdrawal from the occupied territories and said that separate peace talks were an Israeli device to disrupt Arab solidarity. An eight-member committee debated the resolution behind closed doors all day Wednesday. Authoritative sources said Atgeria and the Palestine Liberation Organization sided with Syria; Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia tried to modify t h e draft's hard line with amendments, and Kuwait and Morocco leaned toward the moderates. A similar moderate-militant split was reported in a later meeting of the full 21-member Arab League Ministerial Coun- the cil. But officials pointed out :hat any resolulions adopted by summit conference must be approved by consensus rather than majority vote. The Syrian proposal also urged formal Arab recognilion of the Palestine Liberation Organization's claim lo the West Bank of the Jordan River, which Israel took from Jordan in the 1967 war. This is vigorously opposed by King Hussein of Jordan, who has warned he will boycott further peace moves if the summit anti-eoagulent backs the PLO's territorial ineffective in claims. The moderates on the eight-nation committee were also trying to resolve this dispute. ooks like a "V" on a graph, in contrast lo prolonged declines in e c o n o m i c aclivily, Mc- Craeken explained. He indicated he thought the worst would be over by mid-1975. McCracken said unemployment could approach 7 per cenl and the decline in economic output about 4 per cent nexi year. Another administration economic adviser, L. William Seidman, said his best guess on unemployment would be about 6.5 per cent. McCracken, a former chairman of former President Richard M. Nixon's.Council of Economic Advisers, now serves as a part-time' consultant to Treasury Secretary William E. Simon: H e ' a l s o recently was named by President Ford to help compile his new economic program after the economic summit meetings. While McCracken said it was a moot point 'to argue whether the economy Is in a recession, as President' Ford has claimed it is not, 1 "my judgment is that we're ' probably moving into one." ' McCracken, a professor of economics at the University of Michigan, 'rifles' not rank as an official administration spokesman, and the administration continues lo shy away from describing the current economic condition as a recession. Seidman said in a separate meeting with newsmen Wednesday that it is hard to put a label on the economy at the present time. For some dustries, such as furnilure and slcel, he said there is no recession. For housing, he said there ia a deep recession. "Inflation certainly is the No. enemy, but stagflation is U.S. Proposals Not Disclosed Before Meet MOSCOW (AP) -- Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger met today with Soviet Communist party leader Brezhnev to offer Leonid I. series ot right behind it." said Seidman. "It's'belter to say we have two problems." Stagflation is a term currently being used to describe a condition of economic stagnation and inflation. "The current lack of growth in the economy is a problem," said Seidman. been no advance Population Up WASHINGTON (AP)' - The Census Bureau estimated today that the nation's population as of Sept. 1 totaled 212,216.000. This wsc an increase of 155,000 over the previous month and 1.5 million over the same month a year earlier. in Campaign Rhetoric Congress Said Ford's Target (AP Wirephoto) PROMISES NO CHANGES .. .Rufh, succeeding Jaworski as specta 1 prosecutor, says operations will go on exactly the same Ruth Named Watergate Prosecutor WASHINGTON (AP) -- When Henry Ruth takes over as special Watergate prosecutor on Saturday, there'll be no sense of crisis as there was on that other Saturday a year ago. "Bloody Saturday," it called in the overblown rhetoric Washington ascribes to moments of political confrontation. That was the night Richard Nixon lost a gamble and set in motion the impeachment proceedings which were to end his presidency, the night Nixon outraged a large segment of Congress and the nation by firing Archibald Cox as the Watergate prosecutor, the night he suffered the protest resignations of the attorney general and the deputy attorney general. H e n r y Ruth anguished through thaUOct. 20 weekend in 1073 and stayed on as the deputy Watergate prosecutor, a position he had held since June 1973 when the special force was established. He stayed on as Nixon, backing away from . the confrontation, allowed the Justice Department to rescind the order abolishing the prosecution force. options for a new treaty limiting offensive nuclear weapons. Foreign Minister Andrei A, Gromyko also was present for the meeting in the Kremlin. It was Kissinger's first meeting with the parly chief since lha American arrived Wednesday. Details of the American proposals were not disclosed. But a senior American official told newsmen the United Slates is prepared to join the Soviet Union in negotiations for a broad agreement instead of concentrating on restricting the development of missiles with nuclear warheads. An agreement on guidelines Tor the arms negotiations would be approved by President Ford and Soviet Communist party chief Leonid I; Brezhnev at a mini-summit meeting the Russians have proposed be held during the President's visit to the Far East next month. American officials consider Kissinger's visit a major test of the Soviet interest in negoliat- an extension of the 1972 pact limiting some offensive nuclear weapons. That agree- : ment expires in 1977, and the ( Iwo governments have agreed' in principle lo work out a new trealy valid until 1085. POLICY OF DENTENTE The fact that the Soviets proposed the Ford-Bre7hnev meeting was taken by American officials as evidence that they vant to continue the policy ot detente they forged with the Nixon administration. U.S. officials were ftlso hopeful that the recent compromise with Congress over Jewish emigration and Soviet trade benefits would jive Kissinger's mission a push orward. Kissinger also hopes to win. Soviet acquiescence to his plan of step-by-step, separate nego- iations between Israel and each of its Arab adversaries. Last week the Russians called igain for early resumption of the Geneva peace conference, which would give them a forum n which lo take a hand. Kissinger is pressing instead for an attempt to work out interim settlements bet\yeen Israel and its more moderate Arab foes, Egypt and Jordan. Also on the agenda for Kissinger's talks are the deadlocked negotiations in Vienna to reduce American and Soviet forces in central Europe and the talks in Geneva on Eu- NEWS BRIEFS Foubus Burned HUNTSVILLE, Ark. (AP) -Former Gov. Orval-E. Faubus, 64, said Thursday he was doing well after suffering a slight burn on the left hand while putting out a fire in the kitchen of his home Monday night. Faubus said the hand was blistered by the heat while he held a water hose he used to put out the blaze. He said the burn was painful but not severe. A pan of 'grease caught fire while a meal was being prepared, he said. Validity Questioned LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Dr. Shelby Smith, a professor of finance and real estate at the University of Arkansas--Little Rock, questioned Thursday the validity of a price comparison survey conducted by two UA-- A .News Analysis By CARL P. LEUBSDORF WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Ford is demonstrating his belief in continued presidential domination of U.S. foreign policy by warning that a Democratic election landslide may threaten world peace. The real target of Ford's stepperj-up campaign rhetoric la the growing congressional independence, spearheaded by liberal Democrats, in the foreign and military field. Like Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson and Republican President Nixon, Ford finds Richard M. his policies challenged by the growing mood in Congress against U.S. involvement abroad. Like hisi nrecedessors, Ford is against it. In the Johnson years, the challenge was mainly verbal in the form of growing criticism. In Nixon's presidency, il became more concrete. Moves to limit U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia culminated in the cutoff of funds for bombing Cambodia, and the House joined the Senate lo limil U.S. military aid lo South Vietnam. In Ford's first weeks, the battle has been over enforcement of a law that cuts off U.S. military aid to a country engaging in aggression. The Congress has decided that Turkey in that category because ils invasion of Cyprus. ol Like his predecessors, Ford warned that such a cutoff would tie the hands of U.S. negotiators in trying to work out a long-range agreement. He won the battle for now, when Congress voted to delay the cutoff, but only by a bare margin amid extensive pre-election absenteeism. The President has repeatedly cited the fight on the campaign trail. Until this week, however, he only said It threatened 30 years of foreign policy bipartisanship. In Oklahoma City Tuesday, Ford stepped up his rhetoric, warning that "If we get the wrong kind of Congress, peace could be in jeopardy." If the polls are right, how- ever, Ford is likely to get what IB considers the "worst kind of Congress," one with more Democrats more eager to limit U.S. commitments and weapons abroad. What Ford sees threatened is the policy under which the United States, as "leader of the free, role world," lakes in conlaining the major world-wide Fayelteville professors. Smith said the study shows no connection between price differentials and ings. Therefore, communism through regional defense organizations such as Ihe North Atlantic Treaty Organization and massive military aid.

Mills, but has praised her effort and wished her well. White House Press Secretary Ron Ncssen said Wednesday the President believes Miss Petty is "waging a vigorous and determined campaign for Congress and he wishes her well." Mandatory Fuel Conservation Said Part Of Energy Study WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Ford administration's still-secret "Project Independence" energy study strongly supports mandatory fuel-saving measures, coupled wilh accelerated U.S. oil production. It suggests mandatory conservation measures might include a gasoline-mileage standard tor cars, and lighting and insulation standards for buildings. Increased oil production probably would have to come from drilling in new areas of the At lanlic, Pacific and Alaska coasts, plus commercial devel opment of the Navy's petro leum reserve in Alaska, it says The study makes no specific recommendations but clearly indicates it would be hazardous or the United States to rely on energy produclion - increases alone to carry it through tha next 10 years. It says that wilh conservation and increased produclion, ths United States can be independent of foreign oil by 1985. Without them, oil imports will grow. increasing both the dollar drain and the danger ot a new oil embargo. .
