WASHINGTON (P)-Public re-
lations man Julius Klein testified
yesterday that Sen. Jacob K.
Javits knew more about his
troubles with West German clients
than did Sen. Thomas J. Dodd-
and said both men helped him.
The chunky, 64-year-old cigar-
puffing publicist-who insisted he
is no lobbyist and no press agent-
gave sometimes contradictory tes-
timony to Senate ethics investi-
gators looking into Dodd's rela-
tionship with Klein.

"Would you have been satisfied
if Sen. Dodd had done or said
whatever Sen. Javits did or said?"
asked Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy
"That's right," said Klein.
Klein said he had been depicted
as a Nazi sympathizer, and Javits
Javits. a New York Republican,
told a reporter he mentioned
Klein's name in talks with former
German Chancellor Konrad Ade-

rich von Brentano.
In both instances, Javits said,
the discussion dealt with Klein's
views on German reparations to
Jewish victims of Nazi persecu-
"I thought Klein's position re-
flected credit on him," Javits said.
Klein testified he turned to
Dodd. Javits and other senators
for help after the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee conducted an
investigation into the activities
of foreign agents.
That was three years ago, and
Klein said it hurt his image with
his German clients.
