Stiles, a long-time political confidante of President Ford, has been on the government payroll as a White House consultant. But the spokesman denied t h a t Stiles is involved in any presidential campaign work. Press Secretary Ron Nessen said Stiles has worked as a $125-a-day consultant to the White House for a total of 57 days since Oct. 1 on a variety of .assignments. These included a since- shelved project to build a White House swimming pool with public contributions and some Bicentennial Commission projects. A question .was raised by reporters about the propriety of having Stiles on the government payroll at the White House since he has pleaded guilty to an incident involving hitting a policeman several years ago in his hometown of Grand Rapids, Mich. NESSEN said t h a t Stiles had undergone an FBI check and he assumed such an incident would show up there. But, Nessen added "I think the President is an old friend of Jack Stiles and probably knows his personal background." Nessen declined to say whether he had discussed Stiles White House employment with Ford himself. Stiles, a retired'builder, managed all of Ford's p r e v i o u s political campaigns. The Booth Newspapers, in a story from the newspapers' Washington bureau, said White House employment of Stiles could involve a violation of federal law. WASHINGTON A federal grand j u r y Thursday indicted the Minnesota Mining arid Manufacturing Co. and two of its board members on a charge of income tax conspiracy involving almost $634,000 in allegedly fictitious deductions for illegal political contributions. The Justice Department said the two officials are no longer involved in the day-to-day management of .the company, even though they remain on its board of directors. The indictment, returned in U.S. District Court in St. I'aui, Minn., also charged the,, company with two counts of filing false tax returns. The indicted executives are Bert S. Cross, 59, a director since 1957 and president or board chairman from 1963 through 1970, and Irwin R. Hansen, 60, a director since 1968 and former vice president for finance. ,'. According to the indictment, Cross and Hansen conspired for 10 years beginning in 1963 to raise a secret fund of corporate money to he used for ille- 'gal campaign contributions. The fund was set up by drawing money from a corporate bank account, then f a l s i f y i n g the account books to show the transactions as payment of insurance premiums and legal expenses, the indictment said. The company then conspired to deduct the amount of the contribu- tions from corporate tax returns for 1963 through 1969, the government charged. . · . The company enanneie*. about $509,000 through a numbered Swiss bank account, subsequently placing it in the secret political cache, the indictment said. The amount was fraudulently listed on company tax returns as a deductible insurance expense, the grand jury alleged. The firm also paid $125,000 to a Zurich lawyer, Dr. Ludwig Gutstein who returned the irjoney to Hansen in cashj^he indictment said. The money als« went into the political -Ittnd and was deducted on staii returns as payment^) for · legal .services, the indictment said. «.·; Hansen and thenfirm were indicted for filing a false tax return for 1968 by claiming $50,000 as a deduction for legal fees to Gutstein, and with filing a false return for 1969 for a similar deduction. v ( .
