WASHINGTON (AP) - Former
President Gerald Ford yesterday con-
ceded the Warren Commission was
unaware of CIA plots to kill Fidel
Castro when it ruled out the possibility
of a conspiracy behind John Kennedy's
Ford agreed that with this
knowledge, the commission would have
broadened the scope of its in-
vestigation. But he voiced doubt that
such an inquiry would have changed the
commission's basic conclusion that
Kennedy was shot to death by a lone
assassin - Lee Harvey Oswald.,
"HAD THE WARREN Commission
known of assassination plots directed
against Castro, this might have affec-
ted the extent of the commission's
inquiry," Ford told the House
"It certainly would have required the
commission to extend its inquiry into
those operations," he added. "But I
don't think they, in and of themselves,
would have changed the conclusions."
Ford, one of only three still-living
members of the panel-set up by Lyndon
Johnson a week after Kennedy's mur-
der, also acknowledged that he secretly
briefed an FBI official on the goings-on
within the commission.
BUT FORD insisted that only two
such contacts were made with Cartha
DeLoach, a top aide to then-FBI Direc-
tor J. Edgar Hoover, and that the
sessions dealt only with organizational
problems involving the seven-member
Ford said he stopped discussing
commission business with DeLoach
when the panel moved into thein-
vestigative phase of its work.
The former vice president, who was a
Republican member of the House from
Michigan at the time of Kennedy's
death, listened as one committee mem-
ber described a deposition furnished by
former Attorney General Nicholas Kat-
REP., STEWART McKinney (R-
Conn.), said Katzenbach had voiced
astonishment that the Warren Com-
mission could have been left in the dark
on the CIA plots when one of its mem-
bers was the late Allen Dulles, a
onetime CIA director.
"He was unique because he could
draw on his intelligence background,"
Ford said of Dulles.
"I had the feeling then that we were
getting all the information from the
agencies, including the CIA. Obviously,
some information, such as on the
assassination plots, was not given to us.
Why we weren't given it, I frankly don't
. FORD SAID the U.S. ambassador to
Mexico at the time presented the com-
mission with "forceful" arguments that
Castro was somehow involved in Ken-
He said the commission also got "a
long memo" from former CIA Director
Richard Helms on the possibility of a
Cuban conspiracy. Ford gave no details
on what it said.
In its final report, the Warren Com-
mission detailed its investigation of
possible conspiracies, including Cuban
conspiracies, but concluded that
Oswald alone was responsible for Ken-
nedy's death on Nov. 22,1963, in Dallas.
panel slams vote against abortion
LANSING (UPI) - The abortion
debate intensified yesterday with the
head of the Michigan Women's Com-
r mission condemning a state House vote
against welfare abortions and some

the commission, called a news con-

a similar bill in August, said he will do
so again if the measure comes to his

SOME MEMBERS of the Democrat-

the motives of a chief Republican sup-
porter of the cutoff - Rep. Melvin Lar-

Fitzgerald, meanwhile, came under
fire from some Democratic women who
said they cannot support him because
of his stand on the abortion issue.
The criticism came despite the fact
that Fitzgerald chose Olivia "Libby"
Maynard, an advocate of abortion
rights, as his running mate.
