PAGES-TEN CENTS' India Asked To Help Block Spread Of Nuclear Weapons NEW DELHI, India (AP) -Secretary of Slate Henry A. Kissinger called on India today to cooperate-with international efforts to block the spread of nuclear weapons. "We lake seriously India's affirmation that it has no intention to develop nuclear Weapons," he said in a carefully worded speech before the Indian Council of World Affairs. "But India of course has the capability to export nuclear technology. It, therefore, has an important rote in this mul tilatcral endeavor." The Indian government exploded an underground nuclear device May 18, joining Britain, France, China, the United States and the Soviet Union in the exclusive cliw of nuclear powers. Since then. Prime Minister Indira Gandhi repeatedly has promised India will use its new nuclear power only for peaceful purposes. But her pledges have been greeted with scepticism in many quarters, including Washington. Mrs. Gandhi gave Kissinger a 'rosty reception at tho start of iis visit, which is aimed at mending relations between the United States a n d ' India. But later they both agreed that those relations are "on the way up." Kissinger's comments on nuclear proliferation were designed, according to U.S. officials, as the secretary's major puhlic address during his three- day reconciliation visit to India. Kissinger was reported to have carried a similar message to Mrs. Gandhi during his talks with her and Foreign Minister Y. B. Chavan earlier today. Kissinger and Mrs. Gandhi expressed confidence as they entered the talks that Indo-Ameri can relations were improving. Before Kissinger arrived at her office, Mrs. Gandhi told newsmen that "with any two countries, any two individuals, things go up and down." But, she said, relations with the United States are "on the way up." They "arc good, and we want to make them better." "I agree with that completely," Kissinger said. "Relations are on the way up." In an interview published a f e w h o u r s before Kissinger's arrival from Moscow Suinlay, Mrs. Gandhi said the Indian government had "always tried for good relations with the Americans" but unfortunately they have regarded India as marginal to their global strategy Â· Â· Â·" India has particularly been irked by the U.S. "tilt" toward Pakistan in the 197L war that ;ave birth to Bangladesh. Kissinger is also trying to coax India away from the Soviet Union, which has shipped India an estimated $1.75 billion worth of arms. Chavan at a banquet in honor of Kissinger Sunday night noted that relations between the two countries "have improved in the last year or two. "Although it would be idle to pretend that there are no differences between us, we both recognize the need for building up a mature and constructive relationship on the basis of equality, mutual respect and mutual benefit." Kissinger's visit is virtually certain to produce more U.S. shipments of the food India needs so desperately. During his flight from Moscow to New Delhi, Kissinger told newsmen there is a reasonable chance that the Soviet and American governments will ba ready to sign a new 10-year treaty next year broadening limitations on offensive nucleac weapons. A senior American official said the two governments will issue new instructions to their arms negotiators in Geneva within a month of the meeting between President Ford and Soviet Communist party chief Leonid I. Brezhnev in Vladivostok Nov. 23-24. A treaty might be ready for signing when Brezhnev visits Washington next summer, the official said/ Arab Ministers Discuss Using Oil Again As Weapon Against Western Nations FORD MUST LEAD .Â·. .Mansfield, smilimi as he adjust tie Sunday, said the President must take had m solving nation's financial ills Mansfield, Simon Differ On Nation's Economic Problems WASHINGTON (AP) -- A leading Senate Democrat feels wage and price controls will be needed before the nation's economic problems are solved, but Treasury Secretary William E.

Simon and Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield were interviewed separately on television programs Sunday, and their views were widely divergent on a number of economic matters. On CBS' "Face the Nation," Mansfield said "I think it is just a matter of time before we'll come to wage and price controls," because "all the elements are there for a recession which, if not corrected in time, may well plunge us deeper into an economic morass/' Simon, however, on ABC's "Issues and Answers," repealed his opposition to controls, saying experience has shown they don't work.

Testifying at the Watergate over-up trial, Hunt said fellow onspirator G . Gordon L i d d y old him in April 1972 that "the ig man has given his okay to 3." Asked who Liddy was refer- ng to, Hunt said: "There's only one big man in- olved in the planning and reparation ... The biggest nan rank-wise and stature-wise was Mr. Mitchell." He said Liddy had referred to Mitchell in previous conversations about the plans that led to the break-in as "the big boy" and the "big man." Leading the jury through the familiar story of the Watergate break-in, Hunt also told of plans to bug the Miami Beach convention suite of Democratic Chairman Lawrence F. O'Brien in 1972--plans that were never carried out. Hunt said Liddy learned that Mitchell would occupy the same suite at the Republican National Convention the following month and that Liddy relayed word that Mitchell said: "The only thing I'm con cerned about is that you be sure you get those bugs out before I go in." Hunt has said in the past thai Liddy had told him 111 at Mitchell approved plans for the Watergate burglary in advance, a charge that Mitchell has denied. Liddy has refused to comment at all.

Initial Reaction Cautious New Welfare Program Urged WASHINGTON (AP) -- Presi. dent Ford is being urged to scrap the maze of federal public-assistance programs in favor of program guaranteeing poor families a minimum an- supple- nual income of $3,COO. Named the Income ment Program, the plan was developed over the last year in the Department of Health, Education and Welfare and has been circulating within the President's Cabinet the last three weeks. . HEW Secretary Caspar W. Weinberger said intial reaction has been cautious. HEW planners estimate t h e program's first-year cost at $21.6 billion. Although as many as 42 million Americans might be eligible because of their low i n c o m e s , the department believes that 10 million of lhat number, would not apply for their cash benefits. ' The proposed plan would replace Aid to Families with Dependent children, w h i c h covers 10.7 million persons at an annual federal-stale cost of SB b i l l i o n ; Supplemental Security Income a i d i n g 3.3 million aged, blind and disabled poor; the food stamp program, which has doubled in cost to more than $4 billion the last two years; and clothing and housing allowances. "All of this is predicated on agreement and willingness to put all these existing programs nto one," Weinberger said in an interview. "If we're talking about addding a new program on top of everything else, I am the first man to oppose it." In a draft memo obtained by Ihe weekly National Journal, Weinberger argues lhat the proposed plan, a form of negative income tax would make Congress more keenly aware that sweetening tho welfare pic in the fulure would require tax increases. Weinberger said in the interview that if a moro liberal Democratic Congress w e r e elected next month, public as- sistoncB programs already on tho lawbooks would coma under strong pressure for benefit in Â·eases. The President is being to :hat the present welfare systerr is a runaway nightmare, whic distributes assistance inequ tably to the poor, at a lot cost no one has yet been ab to tabulate. "I would hope the Prcsiciei would include a proposal of th kind in his State of the Unio Address," Weinberger sai "That's what we are poinlin for."

Before Hunt took Ihe sland defense lawyers argued for an hour thai he should not be called as a court witness, a procedure lhat allows both sides to ask leading questions. Such questions normally are not permitted in direct examination. U.S. District Judge John J. Sirica first read brief instructions to the jury telling them thai "like other witnesses, he must take the oath and must answer all questions put to him truthfully" and that the onlj difference in the status of cour witness is the waiver of thi leading qiieslions rule. Hunt, who headed the Water gate burglary team, was the. second witness called in the trial of H.R. Haldcman. Join D. Ehrlichman. John N T . Hit chcll, Robert C. Mardian and Kenneth W. Parkinson, all for mer White House or campaign aides to ex-President Richan M. Nixon. All are chargeil with conspiring to obstruct justice in the Walergale invesligation. As the Watergate cover-up trial entered the fifth week de fense lawyers strenuously oh jccted lo using Ihe courl wit ness procedure to obtain wha :hey contend will be unreliabl* testimony. Haldeman's lawyer, John J Wilson, was especially vehe ment about instructions lo II: jury on the procedure of calling court witnesses. "I have never read such startling charge in my life, Wilson said. "It's deceptive It's not honest." CALLED IMPROPER Plato Cacheris, one of Mi chell's lawyers, called th procedure an "improper fluence on the jury. I therefor resist it and resist it vigor ously."

The oil ministers of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Algeria, Qatar, Bahrein and the United Arab Emirates met Sunday on the sidelines of the Arab summit which has bogged down over .he rival claims of Jordan and .he Palestine Liberation Organ- .zation to future control of the xesi bank of the Jordan River. The summit reconvened to- lay with Jordan and the PLO still at an impasse. "It is either the PLO or Jor- lan," said spokesman for King -lussein and guerilla chieftain ir Arafat, using identical words. Both insisted the conference must choose between them. PI.O REJECTS "The PLO rejects the right of Jordan to represent any part of Palestinian territory at any lime and under any circumstances, including withdrawal negotiations," PLO spokesman Yasser Ahd Rabbo declared. ! The thccc-day conference was to have ended today, but it may, be extended another day. The West Bank territory was taken by Jordan in the 1948 Palestine War and held until Israel occupied it in the 1967 Arab-Israel War. Hussein demands that it be returned to him if Israel gives it up and insists lhat meanwhile only he can negotiate with Israel on behalf of the Palestinians living on both sides of the Jordan. Israel agrees with this position and refuses to negoliate with, the PLO. Arafat and the PLO claim that they are the legitimate representatives of the Palestinian people.
