Professor Xavier really read Magneto's mind?

During  X-Men 1st series #18, Xavier said he is going to read Magneto's memories to discover how did he escape from the Stranger. But how did Xavier do that, if Magneto is always using his helmet on?

I believe that the telepathic-proof helmet was a later addition.  I might be wrong, but I certainly get the impression it was something that started around the time of the movie/Grant Morrison's run.

@Zapa: Magneto is telepathically resistant, not telepathically immune.

@Edamame: I think that with his helmet, Magneto was telepathically imune to Xavier's powers

This wasn't canon until after X-Men #18. It was alluded to during Morrison's run (over a hundred issues later), and only recently has Fraction actually cemented the fact that Magneto's helmet is telepathy-proof.
