Part l-A-Sun., July 22, 1973 I Nixon Sees 'Witch-Hunt; Sears Insiders Say Prices Effective through Tuesday, July 24 BY BOB WOODWARD and CARL BERNSTEIN Thft Washington Post WASHINGTON President Nixon and his top aides believe that the Senate 'Watergate hearings are unfair and constitute a "political witch-hunt," according to White House sources. The sources, said, that the President .in recent weeks had expressed bitterness and deep hostility toward the two-.morith-old proceedings.

According to four separate sources, the hostility toward the hearings is pervasive among the White House staff, especially among former assistants to H. R. Halde-man and John D. Ehrlich-man, the resigned top presidential aides. One White House source said he saw the struggle with the Senate Watergate committee as not just politics hut a battle for survival. "The Ervin committee is out to destroy the President," he said. The bitterness, according to the sources, extends to the point where some White House aides openly mock the members of the Senate committee. In a reference to Sen. Sam J. Ervin Jr. (D-N.C), the committee chairman, one White House aide put on a Southern accent and told a reporter: Baker Criticized "I just little ol' country bumpkin Sam and this nasty politcs offends my pea-picking heart." The aide, who holds a middle-level position in the White House, then dropped the Southern accent and said that Ervin was "out to slice the President, and it offends me to see him come on so sweet when he isn't." Another high White House aide said that Sen. Howard H. Baker Jr. (R-Tenh.), the committee vice chairman, "has effectively deserted the President and the resentment runs high over here, but the feeling is to keep our mouths shut . . . I'm not going to." Five White House aides agreed to discuss the individual members of the Watergate committee, and all said they found Sen. Lowell P. Weicker Jr. (R-Conn.), an outspoken critic of the White House, the most offensive. Two of the sources criticized Sen. Edward J. Gur-ney (R-Pla.), who is the strongest defender of the President. "Gurney is doing the only decent job of questioning," one source said, "but he is not pushing enough."
