(Thitano The Watergate Conversations Section 4 THE W O R L D'S GREATEST NEWSPAPER Wednesday, May 1, 1974 Nixon's transcription of Watergate Tapes The next question: Will House be satisfied? The enormous mass of tape transcripts transcripts published today by The Tribune were shown in their bindings on television television Monday night, stacked by President Nixon's side as he announced to- to- the nation that he would make them public. The transcripts were contained in 50 volumes, each bound in black leather, and each bearing the gold-embossed gold-embossed gold-embossed inscription: 1 'Submission of Recorded Presidential Conversations to the Committee of the Judiciary of the House of Representatives. Representatives. By President Richard M. Nixon." The volumes bore the date, April 30, 1374. Ironically, that is exactly one year from the date that the President first tried to put Watergate behind him by announcing the resignations of II. R. Haldcman and John ErlichinaiCand the dismissal of John Dean. "I must now turn my full attention to the larger duties of this office," he said at that time. But the crisis refused to pass, and instead burgeoned to the point where Congress began actively considering considering impeachment. It was out of the impeachment inquiry by the House Judiciary Committee that these transcripts arose. The committee, on April 11, subpenaed tape recordings of some 42 conversations and the President, after repeated delays, responded responded with the transcripts. However, most committee members were dissatisfied with the offer of transcripts rather than tapes and there were indications that the battle over the tapes is far from over. The text contains incomplete sentences, sentences, sequences that cannot be understood, understood, and confusing syntax. This is the natural result of a full transcription of informal conversation and, of course, it cannot be avoided. The Tribune is publishing the transcript exactly as it was obtained from White I louse sources, with no additions or deletions. The President's transcript summary has been omitted. He has offered ranking House members access to the tapes. ' J- J- ' ni Mitchell JolmWHson Ronald Ziegler 1 .
