Dean is returning to the witness stand WASHINGTON (AP) - With four tapes down and three to go, John W. Dean 111 is returning to the witness stand to relate what happened in thfe White House after he told then- President Richard M. Nixon about the Watergate cancer growing on the presidency. The prosecution in the Water* gate cover-up trial was expected to finish with Dean today after playing the remaining three White House tapes, in which his voice was recorded along with Nixon's. Lawyers for all five defendants, John N. Mitchell, H.R. Haldeman, John D. Ehrlichman, Kenneth W. Parkinson and Robert C. Mardian, then will have a chance individually to question Dean, the first government witness who has been ONE TIME Special Presidential Counsel to ex- President Nixon, Richard Moore is expected to take the witness stand in the Watergate trial following testimony by another former White House lawyer, John Dean. Moore contradicted Dean's testimony before the Senate Watergate Committee in 1973 and has been named an unin- dicted /(jp-eonspirator in L'WlAtriwi(iSi...^«u.J" on the stand Since last Wednes- ddv* Mean while, special Water gate prosecutor Leon Jaworskl said in a television interview Sunday that the entire story of Watergate will come out during the trial. "Through the evidence at the (cover"Up) trial, you're going to have the story of Watergate," Jaworski said on the NBC program "Meet the Press." The last tape played for the jury in the conspiracy case was of the conversation Dean had with Nixon -the morning of March 21, 1974. In that talk, Dean told Nixon that demands by the Watergate defendants might cost $1 million. Later that day, in the next tape to be played, Nixon conferred with Haldeman, Ehrlich' man and Dean. Their discussion included talk of a pardon for Watergate figure E. Howard Hunt Jr., who had rpressed the most persistent money demands. The next tape was recorded the following day when'Nixon, Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Dean and Mitchell and discussed strategy for the coming Senate Watergate committee hearings and the complicity of administration and re-election committee officials in the break-in and cover-up. There had been several previous versions of the March 22 conversation. The White House transcripts released last April had Nixon saying flexibility was necessary "in order to get off the cover- up line." The House Judiciary Committee, during its impeachment inquiry, issued its own transcript, containing 16 pages of dialogue not included by the White House. In the House document, Nixon is quoted as saying "I don't give a shit what happens. I want you all to stonewall it, let them plead the 5th Amendment, cover-up or anything else, if it'll save it — save the plan." The reference to the plan concerned the stance the White House.would take to the Senate ^-•hearings: ^•^«i.-:»^'*-~'~—-^' Seattle printers approve contract SEATTLE (AP) — Printers at Seattle's two daily newspapers have approved a three- year contract that allows publishers to introduce automated equipment and provides benefit sharing in the increased productivity. The agreement approved Sunday covers about 370 em- ployes in the composing rooms of The Post-InteUigen'cer and The Seattle Times. The contract assures lifetime jobs to workers who otherwise might be displaced by automated equipment. William Hanson, president of the Northwest Typographical Union, said members approved the agreement with the Seattle Newspaper Publishers by a 4 to 1 margin. Journeyman pay was boosted $25 a week retroactive to Aug. 1 the first year, and $23.50 and $20 over the last two years of the contract. Harold Kelsey, director of op- operations for The Post-Intel- ligencer, said the paper plans to order automated equipment. Kelsey said he could not speak for The Times but negotiations made it clear the paper is considering new equipment. Previous contracts have had restrictions against the new processes. "It's no wonder," said one publishers' representative. "We've been trying to negotiate them out of jobs." Under the benefit sharing, bonuses of $10 for each month of employment up to $1,200 will be provided. Workers also may quit and take $5,000 cash in severage pay. Those 60 or older may take early retirement at $500 a month until age 65. Middle East said key to economic problem WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. J. W. Fulbright, D-Ark., says a global economic depression could occur unless the Middle East and its rich oil supplies are stabilized. Fulbright, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said a peace settlement in the Middle East is the key to solving the United States' economic problems. In an interview, he said, It seems to me that you have meeting after meeting on the economy, and everybody shies away from mentioning... the settlement of the war. They just ignore the aspect of a settlement...as being significant." Fulbright said the overriding interest of the United States and Europe should be to settle the war and gain control of fuel i , . ut, Fulbnghi &ti he was not optimistic about a Middle East settlement because of Israel's reluctance to surrender Lerritory near Jerrusalem and return to its 1967 boundaries. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is doing everything he can to achieve peace, Fulbright said. But, the senator said, Kissinger had rejected his advice to bring the matter before the United Nations Security Council. Fulbright said he had urged Kissinger several times to ask the Security Council to establish and guarantee Arab-Israeli borders. "This insures the future of Israel better than anything I can think of," he said. "I think better than sitting on a pile of weapons." Fulbright also said Israel "is not well-situated to survive recurrent warfare."

(.*" CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) - lifury selection begins today in jjlne trial of eight former Ohio National Guardsmen charged with civil rights violations in the 1970 Kent State University shootings. *•" The eight were indicted by a federal grand jury last March 29. They are accused of violating the civil rights of four students who were killed and nine j&lHters who were wounded when puardsmen opened fire on groups' of campus demonstra- 'tors May 4,1970. "-U.S. District Court officials .summoned 125 prospective jurors to appear today and said more will be called if necessary. > The prosecution and the de- tense each have lists of 150 potential witnesses, but attorneys indicated they do not expect to .call all of them.

After the shootings, a presidential commission, a state gfarid jury called by Rhodes and the Federal Bureau of In* vestigaiion conducted investiga* tionsm The commission disputed claims that Guardsmen fired in self-defense and called the shootings "unnecessary, unwarranted and inexcusable." The stale grand jury cleared the Guardsmen, saying it found they fired because they had reason to believe Iheif lived were in danger from reek- throwing demonstrators. The state grand Jury indicted 25 persons, excluding some Kent State students fiitd former students, but most of the cases were dropped more than a year later. FIRS* FIGHT WAS IN TAVEftN LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The first Civil War engagement in Arkansas — the battle of El* khorn Tavern — was fought March 7, 1862. > '."•'•-. Swiss reject deportation amendment BERN, Switzerland (AP) — Swiss voters have decisively rejected a proposal to deport 540,000 foreigners in the next three years. Nearly 70 per cent of those voting in Sunday's referendum rejected the constitutional amendment. The vole was 1,689,870 to 878,739. A similar proposal four years ago came much closer to success, with a 46 per cent affirmative vote. The amendment was proposed by a right-wing group called the National Action Against Over-Foreignerization of People and Homeland. It would have set a limit of 500,000 foreigners living in Switzer- land by Jan. 1,1978. This would have meant expulsion of 540,000 non-Swiss, most of them farmhands, unskilled industrial laborers, strecl cleaners, dishwashers and waiters. About two-thirds of these are Spaniards and Italians attracted by better pay than they can get at home. Although Switzerland has no unemployment, and the migrant laborers do the lower- paying work the Swiss won't do, there is a growing tendency to blame the foreigners for inflation, crime, pollution, overcrowding in the cities and other problems. Seventeen per cent of the 6.3 million people in the country are foreigners, the highest proportion in the world, In addition to the migrant laborers, Geneva Is the headquarters of numerous international organizations, and the country is a traditional haven for political refugees. The Swiss government, which rarely intervenes in referendums, urged rejection of the amendment, It said its approval would damage the country's economy and reputation and could provoke the expulsion of some 300,000 Swiss living abroad. The proposal was also denounced by economic, political, labor and religious groups. SPARERIBS SMALL FOR BARBECUEING LB.
