x \£Si r' ica seeks ^ probe of tapes

(Continued from Page 1)
seconds on recordings Nixon made
of his thoughts on two conversa-
tions with key aides - emerged in
Sirica's court.
Fred Buzhardt, one of the bat-
tery of White House lawyers who
has been dealing with the Water-
gate affair, but on this occasion
was a surprise witness, declared
these new gaps could be easily ex-
plained.
NIXON, HE SAID, would fre-
quently keep the dictation button
on his dictabelt machine depressed

while pausing to collect his
thoughts.
While the court hearing continued
through the morning and afternoon,
the Senate Watergate committee
was understood to be preparing an-
other offensive to counter Nixon's
latest refusal Thursday to sur-
render tapes and documents.
In his rejection of a second sub-
poena for five tapes by the com-
mittee, Nixon again fell back on
his oft-stated reason of president-

legal brief would be filed, prob-
ably early next week, to attempt to
show the panel was not overreach-
ing its investigative authority by
seeking the documents and tapes.
In another related development,
one of the country's most influen-
tial law makers, Congressmember
Wilbur Mills, predicted Nixon
would have to confront the crucial
decision this year whether to resign
or face impeachment.
The Arkansas Democrat, who

the U.S. would be better off if
Nixon quit but on the other hand
would be worse off if "we impeach
him." A house panel is at present
considering whether Nixon should
be impeached.
THE DEVELOPMENTS in Judge
Sirica's court centered on the two
new gaps, which became known
when one of the lawyers attached
to Special Watergate Prosecutor
Jaworski's office was questioning

Iran cancels oil
refinery pro ject
BRUSSELS (UPI) -- Sparked by
the announcement that Iran was
dropping its backing of a Socialist-
supported plan to build a huge oil
refinery in Belgium, Premier Ed-
mond Leburton announced yester-
day his one-year-old government
would resign.
Leburton said he would hand his
resignation to King Baudouin to-
day after the Socialists last night
resigned from the ruling three-
party coalition.
THE SOCIALISTS had heavily
supported the plan to build a $275
million refinery near Liege with
Iranian help. Iran backed out ear-
iher in the day because the Belgian
government requested new negotia-
tions on some terms of the deal.
"We found the project had cre-
ated such divergence of views in
the coalition that it justified a re-
appraisal. of the government agree-
ment," Leburton told a news con-
ference after a half-hour emer-
gency cabinet session yesterday.
"We have drawn our conclusions.
I will hand the resignation of the
government to King Baudouin to-
morrow."
The Socialists had pressed hard
to achieve the Belgian - Iranian
project because it would have giv-
en the state direct control of some
of Belgium's oil 'supplies - which
represent 60 per cent of the coun-
try's overall' energy resources.
BUT THE OTHER members of
the coalition, the Social Chris-
tian and Liberal paarties, demanded
firmer Iranian guarantees on long-;
term supply of crude oil at accept-
able prices and the government
SThursday asked the National Iran-
ian Oil Company (NIOC)' for new
negotiations..
Because of the new negotiations,
Iran yesterday sent a cable saying
it would abandon the project
The original agreement with Iran
was signed in late 1972.
