Hunt testified yesterday that the mon-

Nixon viewed as blackmail last year
was just an attempt to collect an over-
"You don't consider your com-
ments to disclose seamy things you
did unless you got $50,000, $60,000,
$72,000 as blackmail?" the Watergate
break-in conspirator was asked at the
Watergate cover-up trial.
"NO, SIR," said Hunt.
"What do you consider it, an in-
"I consider that I was in the posi-
tion of a bill collector trying to get
those who had made prior commit-
ments," said Hunt.
Hunt underwent cross-examination
on this second day as a witness at the
trial of John Mitchell, H. R. "Bob"
Haldeman, John Ehrlichman, Robert
Mardian and Kenneth Parkinson, all
charged with conspiracy to obstruct
Hunt had testified that in March
1973 when he was about to be sen-
tenced for his role as foreman of
the Watergate break-in team he had
word relayed to the White House that
he wanted $122,000 to pay his law-
years. He said he threatened to dis-
close other covert jobs
THE WHITE HOUSE tape tran-
script of a conversation former White
House counsel John Dean had with
Nixon on March 21 showed that both
Dean and the President viewed the
demand as blackmail.
"You don't feel you were selling
your silence?" William Hundley, at-
torney for Mitchell, asked.
"No, sir," said Hunt, "that was a
different matter." Hundley asked if
Hunt considered it extortion.
"NO, SIR . .. it was neither extor-
tion nor blackmail," Hunt responded.
On Monday Hunt testified he had
lied at least a dozen times to grand
juries and had decided to tell the
truth finally after reading the White
House transcripts last summer. He
said he decided then that the peo-

MOROCCO u) - A decision
by Arab leaders to create an
independent Palestinian state
under Yasir Arafat's Palestine
Liberation Organization (PLO)
appeared yesterday to have
doomed the Geneva Middle East
peace talks, at least temporar-
In an Israeli radio interview
from New York, Information
Minister Aharon Yariv denounc-
ed the decision taken at the
Arab summit meeting and re-
peated Israel's vow not to hand
over territory to the PLO.
"THERE IS nothing to talk
about at Geneva," he said.
PLO spokesman Abdul Moh-
sen Abu Maizar said the Arab
summit's decision "is a big
blow against Israeli and Ameri-
can policy." He reiterated the
PLO goal to merge Israel into a
Palestinian state where "Jews
and Arabs will have equal
rights and obligations."
Israel's rejection of a Gene-
va conference involving the
PLO left any hope for a settle-
ment to the bilateral, gradual
approach proposed by U. S. Sec-
retary of State Henry Kissin-
ger. However, even this seem-
