Sunday Morning, September 24, 1978 OK (finlbcatan e 11-A Former White House Press Secretary 'Comes Clean' After Fudge NEW YORK cUPI) Ron Nessen got around to the confession after the Fantastic Fudge. The former White House press secretary had worked up to the moment by devouring a dish of homemade pate and cheese and a dish of green pasta in white sauce and by trying to tickle Mrs. John Graziano into yodeling. Mrs. Graziano, one of the six housewives who own and chef the Summerhouse Restaurant, had just returned from the Alps. "I only yodel when wearing my dirndl," she said. Nessen, as occasionaliy in the Gerald R. Ford presidential days, had no comment and swallowed the fudge and whipped cream dessert and the last of the white wine and said, well, yes, he had erred about Mrs. Ford. The former NBC television reporter raised a great hoo-hah among Ford White House era persons by this summer publishing a book, "It Sure Looks Different From The Outside," put out by Playboy Press at what Nessen says is "a bargain at $12.95." Among other eyebrow raisers, he said Mrs. Ford was oh so jealous of her husband meeting and even dancing with attractive women. Ford White House watchers said nonsense; Betty Ford was the most unuptight woman in Washington and was joking, not jealous. "I made a mistake," said Nessen. (Sounds of whooping and hee-haw from White House reporters of his years.) Nessen ran his fork through the chocolate crumbs on his plate. "I have a tremenous affection for Mrs. Ford. She knows that. She is witty, warm, intelligent and independent. "President Ford had an eye for attractive women. Politicians in power do attract women. I think, on reflection, I did not adequately reflect in the book that when she chided him for attracting women, it was entirely good natured. "Not reflecting that was my mistake," he said. He wiped whipped cream from his lips and refused sugar for his coffee. Nessen began to talk of press secretaries and their woes. "There are three ways a President talks to the public — through the press, speeches and travel. Jody Powell, President Carter's press secretary, tried to control all three. "He found out what I did...the more time you OPEN DAILY 9:30-9:30 SATURDAY 9-9:30 spend with the press, the less time you have for spending with the President, finding out what the press wants to know. Jody's had to cut back," Nessen said. Nessen said Carter should not worry about making a better image. He quoted former Defense Secretary and White House chief of staff Donald Rumsfeld as saying, "The best press policy is being a good President." Nessen said he might like to return to a White House staff but doubts he would want to undergo the press secretaryship again. Now, he is busy making speeches for a fee and writing a novel. "It is full of sex and intrigue," he said and grinned. WHY PAINT YOUR HOUSE? hutall Vnyl Sitof mi M MMf PrihiMS, Firmr!
