Harlow probably won't recommend to Nixon any written pledge to bar staff memoirs, such as Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy required in the White ture publicity and financial reward. "It was disloyal, I became quite utterly convinced, to the President of the United States. I concluded that it was totally unfair to the people with whom I was at work. So, I bundled up that infernal tape recorder and I sent it just lumping hack to the congressman with a letter of thanks, and I told him that it was more than my stomach could bear." WASHINGTON: (NANA) -President-elect Richard Nixon will guard against future "kiss-and-tell" books by insiders, if his first-named top assistant sets the tone in the new administration. Bryce N. Harlow, former Eisenhower aide now constantly at Nixon's elbow, is strongly opposed to such revelations by White House staff- TELEPHONE NOW! For FREE SURVEY on FEDDERS formation, that are newsworthy and salesworthy. It is just up to you as to how you commercialize it." In 1953, it didn't take Harlow long to make his choice. A congressman-friend of his, kept prodding him to compile a daily record at the White House. Harlow was told he owed it to history. Finally, the congressman surprised him with a tape recorder as an insistent reminder. Harlow started with some misgivings. "After about two weeks of this," he told me, "I discovered that I was doing this with a growing nausea, end after another look, I couldn't bear to do it any more. To me it was sneaky, it was dishonest, it was a kind of private eye exercise, probably just for my own personal fu v CENTRAL HEATING AND AIR CONDITIONING SALES AND SERVICE IT PROFESSION!!.'

He considers the practice "unethical" and a serious handicap to working relations. "If it's going to be the rule that persons who work for the President, those on his staff, run around recording private conversations and printing them later for pay. I just don't know what it will do to the White House." Harlow declared. "It puts a very high premium on how future Presidents pick their assistants, if they are to be able to visit frankly with their staff assistants." Harlow, who will specialize on congressional affairs for Nixon, was unusually candid. The wide-ranging interview took place before Harlow came into his new position of power, but it clearly represents his deep-seated convictions. Harlow himself, a brilliant writer and authority on political Washington, has steadfastly refused to publish any "history" based on his intimate knowledge of the Eisenhower White House. He sharply, disapproved of two who did Robert Gray, who served as secretary of the Eisenhower cabinet: and Em-mett Hughes, a staff writer rmi mi 1 1 i Am mam WEST PALM BEACH DELRAY BEACH 683-9201 276-7494 LUW COST TrtTM ... i mm WE'RE CELEBRATING OUR 42nd ,VL- iMIITPITinM lllVIUIMWIl 2 SIZES 15 OZ. and 8 OZ.

He doubts that workable standards could be spelled out as a break on the future. "I think the only limitations are one's own conscience and public reaction." Harlow has concluded. "The only protection against any abuse in this area is for the President to be desperately careful whom he selects for his personal staff. "There were some books of this kind on the Roosevelt period, not very many in the Truman period. Only two, as I recall, in the Eisenhower period, but apparently a great mass in the Kennedy period. It will be fascinating what emanates from the Johnson administration." Harlow said he didn't know of any restrictions being put on the Johnson staff, but added wryly, "the staff turnover there is so rapid that it may not be so easy to write about what's going on. A person does have to be there a while to write revealing insight into conversations that he has audited. In Mr. Hughes' case, he was there nine months, consecutively." On the Kennedy books. Harlow said, "If someone in authority in the Kennedy administration, in the absence of the President, has agreed to the books, I suppose no one else can stand in judgment, but I do think it is unfortunate for the presidency to have them written." Harlow does not feel that history suffers by an absence of such records. "If a staff member is the kind of person he ought to be, he is going to be so blindly loyal and dedicated to his President that objective students of the events of those times will read such books, as a matter of engaging interest and somewhat as you eavesdrop over a transom, but as far as-objective assessment ' of events and people, I think they have to be very essentially discounted." President Eisenhower did not specifically instruct his staff against future memoirs, according to Harlow. "It was never even implied or hinted, yet we didn't rush into print," he added. However, at the close of the Eisenhower administration, a request was circulated that all papers, involving the President, should be turned over to the Eisenhower library at Abilene, Kans. But, no "flat directive" concerned the selection. "In our case, with two serious exceptions, the White House staff kept no private records," Harlow reported. "Those records we felt belonged to the President of the United States. In my case, I turned all my papers lock-stock-and-barrel over to the President's library, and I think almost without exception, so did my colleagues." Harlow, who serves for Nixon as a welcome link with the last Republican administration in helping develop the new, declares, "any President has got to have a staff in whose trustworthiness and personal loyalty lie can have absolute certainly. The While House power is stupendous, almost without restraint, and a White House stall member who is not absolutely trustworthy can cause enormous damage to his country and to his President." With reference to the rash of presidential books after the Kennedy administration. Harlow declared emphatically, "I cannot avoid the feeling that all this is trafficking commercially on the prestige of the White House. You can write books about the White House, if you served in it, that are salesworthy. You can make money out of it. if the President selects you to be his trusted staff advisor, and you can get reaction, ideas, gossipy comments and security in- Okefenokce Photomappcd WASHINGTON (AP) - The Geological Survey announced Saturday that the entire Ok-efenokee Swamp in Georgia and Florida has been mapped under a new process. The technique, the announcement said, combines the best qualities of aerial photography with conventional mapping symbols. It's called photomap. The survey's cartographers have produced 16 quadrangle sheets showing areas of the swamp at a scale of one inch equaling 2.000 feet. It is the first time, the agency said, that the swamp has been mapped in its entirety in such detail.
