WASHINGTON-A one-time FBI agent
who eavesdropped on conversations in Dem-
ocratic party headquarters testified Friday
he was promised immunity for telling all.
But a higher court stopped him from dis-
closing the conversations at the Watergate
trial. ;
The U.S. Court of Appeals ordered that
"the contents of wiretapped conversations
shall not be offered or received in evidence"
at the trial of James McCord Jr., and G.
Gordon Liddy.
The order followed an appeal by a civil
rights lawyer that such disclosure would
violate the privacy of the Democratic of-
ficials involved.
McCord and Liddy, both former officials
of the President's re-election committees,
are on trial for conspiracy, burglary and
illegally bugging the Democratic head-
quarters in the Watergate office complex.
Five co-defendants have pleaded guilty to
charges including illegal wiretapping and
Alfred Baldwin, a former FBI agent and
a key witness in the trial, said that a voice

on a walkie talkie radio whispered "They've
got us" on the night that five men were
arrested in the party's offices.
Baldwin, who has admitted listening to
bugged conversations from a hotel room
across the street, said he then heard the
voice of one defendant, James McCord, say:
"Are you gentlemen Metropolitan police?"
Baldwin said he agreed to testify against
the campaign officials because "I was
advised if I disclosed the facts, everything
I knew, the government would not prosecute
Baldwin said on June 16 last year, one
evening before the five were arrested in the
offices, McCord was in the hotel room
assembling electronic equipment.
"I'm going across the street, I'.zn going
over there," Baldwin said he was told by
McCord between midnight and 1 a.m. on
the 17. "Before leaving, Mr. McCord handed
me a walkie talkie and told me to call him
if I saw anything," he said.
Sometime later, he said, he saw an un-
marked car pull up to the building and
three men get out.
"I got on the walkie talkie and asked

"Are our people dressed in suits or do they
have on casual clothes?' " Baldwin testified.
He said he got the reply "Our people are
in suits."
"I said, 'well, you've got trouble, because
there are guys there with casual clothes
on, with guns drawn.'''
Earlier in the trial police testified that
when they were called to the Watergate
they were wearing old clothes.
Baldwin said he saw Hunt and another
person he believed was Liddy leave the
building and go to a parked car.
He said Howard Hunt then came into the
room and gave him instructions on dis-
posing of the equipment.
Because of the half-day inauguration-day
holiday for federal employes, the trial was
adjourned shortly after noon Friday until
10 a.m. Monday when cross examination of
Baldwin will begin.
U.S. District Judge John Sirica, the trial
judge, told the jurors that arrangements
had been made for them to watch the
inaugural parade from the fourth floor of
the courthouse where they have been se-
questered since they were chosen Jan. 9.

GNP rises, but stocks go down

JUAN CORONA leaves court Thursday after being convicted in
the murder of 25 farmworkers. He faces a life sentence.
Coronta trial ends-,
but did jury agree?.
By AP and Reuters
FAIRFIELD, Calif. - Juan Corona's attorney said yesterday a
holdout juror who now says she has doubts about her switch to a guilty
vote has given him grounds to appeal Corona's conviction on 25 counts
of first-degree murder.
Juror Naomi Underwood said in interviews after the guilty verdict
was returned Thursday that she still has doubts about Corona's guilt
and, that she thinks the 38-year-old farm labor contractor "deserves
another trial."

WASHINGTON - The American
economy grew at its fastest rate
for more than 20 years in 1972,
according to final figures for the
Gross National Product issued by
the Commerce Department yester-
The GNP - the market value of
the nation's output of goods and
services - rose 31.8 billion dol-
lars during the fourth quarter of
the year to a seasonally adjusted
annual rate of 1.1958 trillion dol-
Economic output, reflecting brisk
consumer buying and business in-
ventory buildup, rose by $102 bil-
lion during the year to an average
of $1.152 trillion.
Herbert Stein, chairman of Pres-
ident Nixon's Council of Economic
Advisers, said that 1972 was a "re-
markably good year for the econ-
"The improvement in GNP last
year translated into significantly
higher standards for the average;
American," he said.
In total, the GNP is saying that
1972 was an extremely good year
and the econlomy's strong upward
momentum and balance promise
another good year in 1973.
Private economists are estimat-t

ing that after the first 100 billion
dollar grow in the history of the
American economy, 1973 could see
a gain of 110 billion dollars or3
more, to over 1.265 trillion dollars.
While the administration could
be encouraged with the real in-,
crease of 8.5 per cent at an an-
nual rate in the Gross National

ways of avoiding a buildup in infla-
tionary pressures.
Also, the Federal Reserve Boardj
has begun to tighten up somewhat
on supplying the economy w i: h
money in hopes that it can takej
some of the heat out of the expan-
sion and give Nixon's Phase 3
wage-price controls some credibil-

uncertainties, primarily connected
with Phase 3," said Alan Shaw of
Harris, Upham & Co. "The market
doesn't like uncertainty and that's
part of the reason for the setback.
