FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1980 ational ^iNixon testifies he a Jo of secret break-ins of finding fugitive members of the militant Weather Underground. The prosecution finished with rebuttal witnesses Thursday after calling Nicholas Katzenbach — the fifth former attorney general to testify about break-in policies. It is uncertain whether the case would go to the jury today. Nixon’s testimony was marred briefly, moments after he took the oath, by three leftist sym pathizers shouting “murderer,” “liar,” “genocide,” “war cri minal.” He sat stone-faced as they cal led him names. He resumed his testimony after they were ejected from the courtroom. Sometimes smiling nervously to the jury, Nixon urged the panel to think back to the climate of Vietnam era in deciding whether the FBI had cause to conduct the Weather Underground break- ins. “What I am saying is that at the time, as far as my actions were concerned and the actions of others, we must recognize things ile fuel.

Testifying at the trial of two for mer FBI officials, Nixon said, in uuneatie I 970 he approved a White House injured Set D P lan for widespread surveillance, ® l ™including break-ins, against domestic groups. He told the jury he revoked the plan when FBI Director}. Edgar Hoover objected to it. But Nixon made clear his action did not for bid the FBI from conducting further break-ins. He testified for 45 minutes at the six-and-a-halfweek old trial of W. Mark Felt and Edward S. Mil ler, the FBI’s former No. 2 and No. 3 men, charged with approv ing nine illegal break-ins in hopes he Air Force I ors at the top j es. But slower— gered the heal led. :ed were quite different than they are today,” said Nixon. He said “there were reports — that I considered to be hard evi dence — the Weather Under ground had foreign connections. ” Nixon said he always was con cerned about terrorist activities — especially in wartime when terrorism “may create attitudes in this country that delay the end of the war, the end of the killing. ” He said he would “particularly support” FBI surveillance to combat subversion, espionage and terrorism. Nixon said he be lieved the bureau had authority delegated from the president to conduct break-ins — without having to get approval from the attorney general. Ai the time, Nixon said he was troubled by U.S. terrorist activi ties — which intensified as oppo sition to the Vietnam War height ened. “We were at war. Without question, the policy (on surveill ance) had to be influenced by that fact,” Nixon said. - A SPECIAL INVITATION - Come to an International Dinner Friday, October 31, 7:30 p.m. At the Baptist Student Center 201 College Main (Behind Loupots) Bring a favorite food from your country — — see you there! ie past 20 yean T fie ones he his h .1 • .1 ago he quit Abilene man is co-author scause of the it 'irchers tied to Somoza book t them as an ii mtry and 1 hawj government,” t buv anv nntk United Press International i interest is“ ^ 1IAMI ~ The Publisher of the m dtirintrWnrliW President Anastasio Somoza’s ihnson, aSanfl® ok ’ “ Nicara g ua Betrayed,” is a FvervlwIvA^biidMry ofthe John Birch Society, leenToo low sisiff ? m P a n V spokesman said the rates woul(lfe n< r s ^ a 7' , ,, , . t only if "thev S ' 6 book accuses the Carter admi- D comnete lustration of having forced Somoza to 1 oZ sour^ sign ’ then breakin 8 its P romise to isn’t going tolft erve Nicara g ua s national guard, 'buy them” ^ estern Islands publishing 'ans however :om P an y was founded by former -dless pdy manufacturer Robert Welch a Cm Rrnmr ear a ^ ter established the ultra- ianagerofCityfe ervat , iv " ]oh " Bi J ch Societ > in says higher .nv; 95 ,^ 1 ^^ Ha r nd y> an attorne y ect bond salesi. 01 :.* 6 P ubhshln g ^m.

He was killed Sept. 17, 1980, in Asuncion, Paraguay, by a squad of assassins who blew his car apart with a bazooka and then sprayed him, his driver and an eco nomic adviser with machine gun fire. The book was co-authored by Somoza and an American journalist, Jack Cox of Abilene. Handy said Cox came “recommended” to Western Islands with the idea of writing a book about Somoza. Handy said Welch met Cox then “gave Mr. Cox the go-ahead.” Cox then flew to Paraguay where Somoza had been living after his forced departure from Miami, the Miami Herald reported. Cox and Somoza worked together on the book for several months before Somoza’s assassination. Handy said the John Birch Society espouses anti-Communist causes, and “Nicaragua Betrayed” appeared to be a “fitting” enterprise given Somoza’s well-known anti communist sentiments. The book contains what it claims are transcripts of tapes made of high ly sensitive conversations between Somoza and U.S. officials during the 1978-79 Nicaraguan crisis.

There is no human anti-toxin, but Shands says one could be developed after more research.
