Final draft states Nixon directed Watergate coverup from the start By JIM ADAMS Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The final draft of the House impeachment inquiry's report concludes that former President Richard M. Nixon "from the beginning ... knowingly directed the cover-up of the Watergate burglary." The draft House Judiciary Committee report says about the Watergate break-in and cover-up "The president adopted course of conduct which caused illegal surveillance for political purposes, and the concealment of responsibility for that surveillance, obstruction of justice, perjury, destruction of evidence—all of which are crimes." Galley proofs of the draft report were sent to the committee's 38 members Wednesday night and The Associated Press obtained a copy of the report's conclusions. The draft still can be changed before the report is adopted. Nixon's disclosure Aug. 5 that six days after the Watergate break-in he approved an effort to steer the FBI away from his re-election campaign money's financing of it is inserted in the report as additional evidence. Nixon said loss of congressional support after that disclosure forced his resignation. But the draft report contends the disclosure only confirmed the evidence the committee already had. The report summarizes previously disclosed evidence supporting the three articles of impeachment the committee voted against the former President. It says the evidence that Nixon directed the Watergate cover-up is "a pattern of undisputed acts." The draft lists 30 acts that it says cannot be rationally explained any other way. In addition, Nixon's public statements for two years from the time of the break-in until last June 9 "deliberately contrived continually to deceive the courts, the Department of Justice, the Congress and the American people," the report says. The section on evidence supporting proposed impeachment for abuse of power, including the burglary of the office of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist and misuse of the Internal Revenue Service and other agencies, concludes: "He violated the obligation that every citizen has to live under the law." Saying the Constitution requires that the president not only live under the law but assure its faithful application, the draft report charges: "Richard M. Nixon repeatedly and willfully failed to perform that duty. "He failed to perform it by authorizing and directing actions that violated the rights of citizens and that interfered with the functioning of executive agencies." As for recommending the third impeachment article, for Nixons defiance of committee subpoenas for Watergate tapes, the draft report says acquiescence by Congress this time might tempt any future president to ignore impeachment subpoenas. Although tne report accuses Nixon of a course leading to the illegal burglary and wiretapping of Democratic national headquarters in the Watergate office building, the 30 acts cited relate only to the cover-up that followed. The report says the 30 include what it calls Nixon's instructions that $75,000 in alleged hush money be paid to Watergate conspirator E. Howard Hunt Jr. and that witnesses give false testimony. The report says more than $400,000 was paid to the Watergate defendants. And it says that Nixon told former aide John D. Ehrlichman on April 17, 1973, "to give false testimony concerning (Nixon lawyer Herbert W.) Kalmbach's knowledge of the purpose of the payments to the Watergate defendants." It lists as what it considers the first indication that Nixon already knew of the cover-up the fact that he decided not to attend a meeting of five top aides on the Watergate break-in three days after it happened. The draft report also cites the famous 18%-minute gap on a taped discussion between Nixon and Haldeman three days after the break-in. It says the erasure occurred at a time ".the President stated that the tapes had been under his 'sole and personal control.'" The list also includes Nixon's firing of former special Watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox, his comments on containing the Watergate investigation and his praise of former White House Counsel John W. Dean III for "putting your finger in the dike every time that leaks have sprung here and sprung there." One-legged war vet burns self in Saigon SAIGON, South Vietnam (AP) — A one-legged war veteran and father of five children burned himself to death today in front of the National Assembly building. A police spokesman said the man, Phan Van Lua, 33, died in an anti-Communist prot&rt. The police said he left behind a 100- page notebook containing numerous anti-Communist slogans and a letter telling his children to work hard in school. It was the second self-immolation of a South Vietnamese veteran in Saigon in five weeks. The government staged a propaganda campaign after the last burning, claiming the victim died for the cause of peace. Witnesses said Lua, who had an artificial left leg, limped to the front of the assembly building in downtown Saigon, planted a walking stick with a South Vietnamese flag hanging from it, poured gasoline over himself and set himself ablaze. The police command said officers on the scene tried to put out the flames immediately with fire extinguishers. But Wayne Corey, a correspondent for the Voice of America who was present, said the police did not move in to douse the fire until it seemed obvious Lua was dead. Officials said the man had been a corporal in the army and was discharged last year after his left leg was amputated because of combat wounds.

ROTHBERG Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Ford administration says the special Watgergate prosecutor will have to deal with forme* President Richard M. Nixon if the prosecutor wants additional White House tapes. That was the outcome of a decision Wednesday that the controversial tape recordings are Nixon's personal property. A Ford spokesman said White House lawyers reached their decision on the tapes after consulting with the prosecutor's office and the Justice Department. The spokesman said they "raised no objections." Presidential Press Secretary Jerald F. TerHorst said the "judgment was a collective one." However, a spokesman for special prosecutor Leon Jaworski said his office was informed about the decision but "did not take part in it." He refused to say whether the prosecutor agreed with it. TerHorst later said that the "collective" judgment actually was the decision of James D. St. Clair and J. Fred Buzhardt, the two lawyers who led the fight to withhold the tapes while Nixon was president. Nixon had refused to obey eight subpoenas from the House Judiciary Committee for tapes of 147 conversations. There are no subpoenas outstanding from the prosecutor's office but Jaworski had requested by letter many tapes he never received. Earlier in the week, when a spokesman for the prosecutor's office was asked about the tapes remaining at the White House, he replied, "Certainly, this is material that is potentially of interest to us." TerHorst said that if Jaworski wants additional tapes he would have to deal with Nixon, according to the St. Clair- Buzhardt opinion. The Judiciary Committee has shown no inclination since Nixon left office to pursue enforcement of its subpoenas. TerHorst said White House lawyers would have to decide how to handle tapes the prosecutors consider relevant. He said all the recordings now are "in the protective custody" of the Secret Service. What concerns lawyers in the prosecutor's office is the transfer of custody of the tapes to Nixon before they have had an opportunity to renew their earlier requests. , Simplicity U ,76451 \ SEND THEM BACK TO SCHOOL IN CAREFREE STYLES WITH PERMANENT PRESS CREATIONS FROM FABRIFIC FANTASTIC ASSORTMENT OF FANCIES AND SOLIDS IN, THE LATEST COORDINATED COLORS AND DESIGNS 60" WIDE ON BOLTS AND NO IRONING NECESSARY, SEW AND SAVE FOR BACK TO SCHOOL^ • V ADH AND THE COMING FALL. • • AKP REG.*3.9t POLY-COTTON BONANZA Values to $2.49 per yard in Polyester and Cotton combinations.
