FEO says
oil boycott
effective
WASHINGTON (UPI) - Amid
predictions that the Arabs might
relent, the Federal Energy Office
(FEO) announced that the Arabian
embargo on oil impots to the
United States was "nearing full
effectiveness."
The White House, meanwhile, an-
nounced that President Nixon will
deliver a 15 minute energy mes-
sage on national radio today, ap-
parently to counter charges that
the crisis was contrived by the
administration and the oil industry.
DEPUTY PRESS Secretary Ger-
ald Warren indicted the speech was
not intended to disclose any new
programs, such as gas rationing.
He also denied any speculation that
the President might announce that
the Arab boycott would be lifted
because of an agreement for troop
disengagement in the Middle East.
In its "petroleum situation re-
port" for the first 11 days of Jan-
uary, the FEO indicated that the
"leakage" of Arab oil into the
United States from third countries
has nearly dried up.
"The oil embargo is nearing full
efectiveness," the report said.
IT NOTED that oil imports
averaged 300,000 barrels a day
above government forecasts 4.9
million barrels during the first 11
days of January, but during the
last seven days of that period im-
ports dwindled to 27,000 barrels
above forecasts.
The total - amount of gasoline;
stocks for the month of January
compared to a year ago dropped
from 215 million barrels to 205
million barrels.
In testimony prenared for the
House Small Business subcommit-
tee, FEO Deputy Administrator
John Sawhill described the Arab
boycott as "fully effective." But
he held out hope in a statement
issued Thursday night that it would
be lifted soon.
VICE PRESIDENT Gerald Ford
also predicted Thursday that the1
embargo would be lifted because of
recent developments in the Middle
East.
The embargo, imposed after the
outbreak of the Arab-Israeli war
three months ago, severely cut
into the 7 million barrels of oil
that previously was imported into
the United States. But leakage
through third countries, which
Sawhill identified as primarily
Venezuela and Canada, continued'
to bring Arab oil into the United
States during the early days of the
boycott.
Sawhill said that Arab oil em-
bargo has reduced U.S. petroleum
supplies by almost 14 per cent
below expected demand. "Thus,"
he said, "while there has been
some leakage, imports have been
steadily declining."
HE DENIED charges that the
shortages have been contrived, but
conceded that available data on
energy reserves "is not adequate
and its reliability can not be!
checked."

WASHINGTON (UPI) - Adm.
Thomas Moorer, chairman of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff, said yester-
day he did get some unauthorized
reports of secret White House
discussions but they were trivial
leaks from an overzealous clerk
acting on his own.
Moorer, giving his side of the
alleged Pentagon vs. White House
spying affair, denied that his
Joint Chiefs of Staff had runha
spy ring in the White House in
1971 to keep tabs on secret dip-
lomatic dealings with the Soviet
Union, North Vietnam and other
nations.
HE LABELED these reports
"ludicrous, ridiculous and just
a lie."
The reports said the White
House "plumbers' 'investigation
unit led by David Young had un-
covered a Pentagon spying oper-
ation while trying to track down
security leaks from the National
Security Council and the office
of Henry Kissinger, then Presi-
dent Nixon's national security ad-
viser.
Interviewed on the NBC-TV
Today program, Moorer said he
ran no such ring although some
"useless" White House material
f~r\\,";r:";";''}y4,S,;;'y~ "+.f (Y;'-.' ~~

fell into his hands without seek=
ing it.
"I WANT- to assure the Amer-
ican people that I have never is-
sued any instructions or given
any orders, either directly or
implied, to anyone to supply me
unauthorized information," he "
said.
But he added that "some time
ago" he had received from Rear
Adm. Robert Welander, then a
Pentagon liaison representative
at the W h i t e House, some
"roughs and carbons and things
of that kind" transcribed at
White House military discussions
by Navy Yeoman 1st Class Char-
les Radford.
Radford took notes of the dis-
cuss-ions for Welander, his boss
on the White House liaison team.
Radford has since been transfer-
red to a post in Oregon, where
he has denied any part in a
White House spy operation.
MOORER said the Radford ma-
terial covered the military situa-
tion in Vietnam, Cambodia and
other areas and were "essential-
ly useless, because I had already
received messages and memor-
anda and in some cases talked to
Dr. Kissinger and the NSC staff
about these matters."

LOS ANGELES ) - Dino Mar-
tin, 22-year-old son of entertainer
Dean Martin, was arraigned yes-
terday on a federal charge of il-
legally possessing firearms after
agents confiscated seven ma-
chine guns and a cannon at his
home.
An attorney for Martin, a gun
fancier who has had a large
collection for years, said t h e
charge stemmed from a "techni-
cal" violation of a federal law
requiring Martin to pay a trans-
fer tax before selling the wea-
pons.
MARTIN, a premedical student
at the University of California
at Los Angeles, was arraigned
before U.S. Magistrate J a m e s
Penne and released on $5,000
bond.
A spokesman for the Alcohol,
Tobacco and Firearms Bureau
of the Department of the Treas-
ury said Martin was arrested on,
Thursday at his Beverly Hills,
Calif., home, placed in custody
and then released in informal cus-
tody to his attorney.
The spokesman said seven ma-
chine guns, a .20mm cannon and
a supply of ammunition were
confiscated. The 14-foot-long can-
non is ordinarily used as an
anti-tank weapon, the spokesman
added.
ASST. U.S. ATTY. R o b e r t
Perry said, "We do not believe
Mr. Martin was involved in the
sale of guns to any terrorist or-
ganization." He added, "We an-
ticipate no one else being involv-
ed."
After the arraignment, Martin's
attorney, Charles Weedman, told
newsmen "the charges are real-
ly technical, involving the way
he chose to dispose of the guns."
Asked if Martin approached a
federal agent to sell the guns,

Weedman said, "I don't think
he approached anyone. It's a
matter of having the guns in a
collection. You must pay a trans-
fer tax.and notify the government
for a sale and that is the es-
sence of the charges. He is not
a criminal. It's really a techni-
cal matter involving the trans-
fer of these guns."
A SPOKESMAN for Mprtin had
said earlier that the youth was
in the process of selling t h e
home and part of the gun collec-
tion and that many people had
been in his home the last two
weeks.
Martin did not enter a plea at
the arraignment, but Weedman
said Martin planned to p 1 e a d
innocent. Weedman waived a pre-
liminary hearing for Martin. The
next step, officials said, is for
evidence to be presented to a
grand jury.
"I'm entering into the discus-
sions with the U.S. attorney, and
I'm quite confident that we can
come out of this quite satisfac-
torily," he said. He added, "The
government is entirely satisfied
that my client, is a young min
who albeit foolishly but inocent-
ly acquired these guns."

Authorities released only sket-
chy details of the case, saying
an investigation into Martin's
guns had been under way for
nearly a month.
A federal spokesman said the
machine guns were a Russian
AK 47 fully automatic assault ri-
fle, an M16 fully automatic rifle,
an M2 fully automatic carbine, a
Sten submachine gun, a Thomp-
son submachine gun, and two
Belgian FN michine guns.
