blocked disclosure of the 1971
burglary of Daniel Ellsberg's psy-
chiatrist by White House agents,
including Hunt and-Liddy.
Nixon said he hadn't been
aware of that burglary and
hadn't authorized it.
However, Elliot Richardson, his
nominee to be attorney general,
told the Senate Judiciary Com-
mittee yesterday that Nixon was
made aware of the Ellsberg case
burglary in late March.
Testifying at the unexpected
reopening of his confirmation
hearings, Richardson told sena-
tors that f o r m e r presidential
counsel John Dean III "informed
the President, or so I've heard,
that there had been a break-in"
at the psychiatrist's office.
Richardson a d d e d, however,
that this appeared to mean that
"the President was made aware
of the Ellsberg break-in but not
who was involved or what came
of it."

The key developments in the
Watergate hearings yesterday in-
cluded:
JOHN CAULFIELD - former,
White House aide, swore he re-
layed offers of executive clem-
ency to Watergate burglar James
McCord on the orders of presi-
dential counsel John Dean III.
Denying that he used President
Nixon's name in connection with
the ,offer, Caulfield said he told
McCord only "it comes from way
up at the top."
"I specifically never spoke to
the President of the United States
and have no knowledge of my
own as to whether he personally
had endorsed this offer, or indeed
whether anyone had ever dis-
cussed it with him," Caulfield
said.
JAMES MCORD JR.-convict-
ed Watergate conspirator, indi-
cated that President Nixon's re-
election committee may have
concealed campaign contributions
received from billionaire Howard
Hughes.
McCord also quoted Liddy as
saying a "Howard Hughes plane"
had been lined up for the escape
of a burglary team.
ALL THREE TV networks con-
tinue live coverage of the Water-
gate hearings today.

those flights 'were not members
of the chartering organization.
THEREFORE CAA refused to
grant landing rights to, VIA-
processed flights.
UAC's "chartering organiza-
tion" is restricted to University
students, faculty, staff, and their
families.
Vartaric maintained that the
rules governing group charters
are so complex that "everyone
unwittingly violates them at some
time or another."
CHRISTOPHER BROWN of the
Civil Aeronautics Board said
placing non-group members on a
charter flight "is a well known
abuse employed by many char-
ter agencies." The administrators
"just want to make money and
they do that by filling airplanes,"
he added.
Apparently a May 17 flight
from Detroit to Brussels, char-
tered by VIA and subsequently
cancelled, may never have exist-
ed.
Frank Casa, a University pro-
fessor who was on the flight, was
told bf a VIA executive that the
charter had been signed with
Sabena Airlines.
A VIA CLERK confirmedthe
fact that the flight had been
chartered in conjunction with
Sabena, but said that VIA can-
celled the flight well before the
departure date.
The area sales manager for
Sabena said "no such charter
with either UAC or VIA exists."
He said any such charter would
have to have come through 'his
office.
"Whoever said there was a
charter with Sabena took you
down the golden path," he added.
VARTARIC SAID late yester-
day that he assumed the charter
for that flight must have been
signed with Capitol Airlines

rather than Sabena, but that he
could not be "absolutely certain."
Spokespersons for Capitol Air-
lines could not be reached for
verification of Varatc's state-
ment.
Another passenger originally
scheduled on the May 17 flight
has had his departure time
changed on five occasions. His
point of arrival in Europe was
also changed several times.
He protested to the University,
the FAA, and the Secretary of
State's office. VIA finally booked
him on flight dates approximat-
ing those he originally requested.
DENNIS SPIVACK, a law stu-
dent, suffered through a similar
series of changes. At one point
last week, he was in the VIA
office confirming his place on a
flight to London after several
changes.
The clerk assured him "our
London flights always go," he
said. Seconds later the clerk was
handed a computer print out
sheet and announced his flight
had been cancelled, he said.
LACK OF communication be-
tween UAC and VIA may be re-
sponsible for some troubles with
the summer flight schedule.
White described coordination
between the two groups as "very
slipshod," and added that "VIA
doesn't keep in contact (with us)
concerning flight changes."
Vartaric had equally strong
words for UAC, contending that
"the people at UAC know noth-
ing about travel."
BOTH WHFTE and Vartaric
blame their problems on a lack
of passengers seeking charter
flights this summer.
Representatives of the two
groups met yesterday and agreed
upon new options which they
maintain will eliminate most of
this summer's scheduling prob-
lems.
