Poor Martha
WASHINGTON-Martha Mitchell, once
the darling of the Nixon administration,
now travels a lonely, bitter road. In the
days when romance blossomed, she said
what she thought. And in the days of
Watergate, she has been no different.
"Give 'em hell, Martha," Nixon once
said. But now she has said the President
should resign-that her husband, John, is

Martha was last seen Thursday fleeing
New York.

Colson charges Hunt was told
o leave . after break-in

WASHINGTON 4') - Two days after the
Watergate break-in, White House counsel
John Dean said conspirator Howard Hunt
had been ordered out of the country, for-
mer presidential aide Charles Colson'
claimed yesterday.
Colson said in an interview that when he
objected strongly to Dean's news on the
grounds the White House might be aiding
a fugitive, Dean made a telephone call
and claimed he got the order rescinded.

Despite his violent objection to the Hunt
order, Colson said, he did not ask Dean or
anyone else who issued it or why. Colson
continued to insist that he had no evi-
dence of White House involvement in the
Watergate break-in or the subsequent at-
tempted cover-up this year.
Meanwhile a Costa Rican federal court
refused yesterday to grant a U. S. request
that financier Robert Vesco be extradited
to the United States.

HUNT WAS later convicted in the Wat- THE DECISION can be appealed to

Nixon and Brezhnev pledge to avoid
conflicts that might cause nuclear war

Vesco was indicted in New York, charg-
ed with trying to influence the Securities
and Exchange Commission (SEC) with a
secret $200, contribution to President
Nixon's re-election campaign.
Vesco, former Atty. Gen. John Mitchell,
former Commerce Secretary Maurice
Stans and New Jersey Republican figure'
Harry Sears were charged in New York
with conspiracy and obstruction of jus-
tice. Mitchell and Stans also were accused
of perjury. All pleaded innocent.
THE SEC has charged Vesco and 49
others in a civil action with milking a

U. S. Amba.stidor Virnon Vaky lure-
sented the extradition request earlier this
month, asking the high court to throw out
its request for moreproof of the validity
of chnre asgainst Vesco.
FEDERAL JUDGE Atilio Vizenso reject-
ed the extradition petition after Vaky
failed to furnish the further proof.
Vesco's investments in Costa Rica are
estimated at $25 million. His interests
have been closely linked with the finan-
cial dealings of President Jose Figueres
of Costa Rica.
The Senate committee, meanwhile, was
preparing to resume its hearings Monday

WASHINGTON (UPI) - President Nix-
on and Soviet Leonid Brezhnev, already
planning a 1974 summit, yesterday signed
a new agreement pledging their nations
to avoid military confrontations that
could lead to nuclear war.
The agreement, toasted with champagne
by the smiling world leaders at a lavish
ceremony in the White House East Room,
came after the two signed an accord
Thursday to speed limitations on nuclear
weapons. The latest agreement apparently
is more significant for the friendly atmos-
phere it proclaims than for any concrete

restrictions it might impose on future
NIXON and Brezhnev signed the agree-
ment before leaving on a five-hour flight
to the West Coast to continue their talks at
Nixon's bluff-top villa in San Clemente,
The ceremony began about 15 minutes
late because Brezhnev, the general secre-
tary of the Soviet Communist party, ex-
tended trade discussions with 51 American'
business leaders at Blair House, the guest
house across the street from 'the White
House where Brezhnev stayed while in

The agreement to avoid nuclear war
was described by both sides as a supple-
ment to the pact signed Thursday com-
mitting the two nations to negotiate by
the end of next year a permanent treaty
to limit and ultimately reduce stocks of
offensive nuclear arms.
THE STRATEGIC Arms Limitations
Agreement may be ready for signature
when Nixon visits Moscow next year. The
President accepted Brezhnev's invitation
for another summit meeting late Thurs-
