Pentagon Papers reveal Lodge
Viet bombing in
By AP and Reuters
LOS ANGELES - Former U. S.
Ambassador to Saigon Henry Ca-
bot Lodge proposed the bombing of
North Vietnam as early as 1964
but said it should stop short of to-
tal annihilation of the country be-I

Lodge's suggestion to the United

in four previously secret sections
of the Pentagon Papers known as cussing tactics to be used by the

"I much prefer a selective use

well bring in the Russians,"
Lodge's memo read.

Watergate trial goes to jury
TREASURY SECRETARY George Schultz (left) talks with Caspar --
Weinberger, director of the Office of Management and Budget,
during a Washington news briefing on the budget.
By AP and UPI
The prosecution completed its case in the
Watergate bugging trial yesterday and the fate
of two former officials of President Nixon's re-
election campaign committee goes to the jury
Though the prosecution has not probed to find
out who was behind the incident or whether then-
campaign chairman John Mitchell or Nixon him-
self knew -of it, U. S. District Judge John Sirica
frequently has taken over questioning to try to
find the answers and has scolded lawyers for
not doing their job.
Privately, Sirica has told newsmen he feels
it will fall to an upcoming congressional investi-
gation of the Watergate case to uncover "the
real story, the real facts" about it.
The prosecution had presented 49 witnesses
against G. Gordon Liddy, former counsel to
President Nixon's campaign finance committee,
and James McCord, Nixon's campaign security
chief, by the close of Friday's session.
Initially, Asst. U. S. Atty Earl J. Silbert plan-
ned to call 60 witnesses in the prosecution of
seven men charged in connection with the break-
in and the bugging of Democratic party head-
quarters on June 17, 1972.
But five of the defendants pleaded guilty and
the number of witnesses was reduced. The trial
started Jan. 8.
Meanwhile, with firm denials that he was be-
ing forced out, the Florida White House said
yesterday that Dwight Chapin is resigning as
President Nixon's appointments secretary.
Chapin's name cropped up in last fall's con-
troversy over alleged political espionge by Re-
publicans, and newspaper accounts named him
as White House contact for California lawyer
Donald Segretti, identified as a coordinator of
the disruptive efforts.
