It was the first revelation of the pool of cash from which three reported special funds allegedly were drawn. News accounts alleged they were used to finance political espionage and sabotage on behalf of President Nixon's re-election, including the Watergate burglary. The testimony was given by Hugh W. Sloan former treasurer of the Finance Committee to Re-elect the President, last October in a deposition taken in a suit by Common Cause, a citizen's group. It had been sealed by U.S. District Court until Friday. Sloan testified he kept a journal of cash contributions coming into the campaign, including the names of contributors, dates of the gifts and disbursements. "There was a record of day- to-day cash contributions, from which a summary sheet had been prepared," he said. "At Secretary Stans' instruction, I personally destroyed the working copy, as it was no longer deemed necessary, and turned the summary sheet over to the secretary," Sloan added. I have been since led to understand that that has been destroyed." Sloan referred to former Commerce Secretary Maurice Stans, who was chairman of the Nixon campaign finance committee. The whereabouts of the summary sheet Sloan said he gave Stans has not been determined, Common Cause lawyers said. Asked what the missing records would cover, Sloan responded: "The Summary sheet of all contributions received in cash as opposed to by check or securities, and Ihe disbursements made from those funds." Asked how much money was involved, Sloan said: A. I don't have a precise figure in mind. But it was in excess of $1 million. Q. You have indicated that the amount was in excess of SI million. Can we put a ceiling on it? Was it under $10 million? A. Oh, Yes, it was under $2 million. Q. Somewhere between SI million and $2 million? Sloan said some of the money was deposited directly into the accounts of some of the Nixon fund-raising committees and would be reflected in the remaining records, but he did not say how much of it. However, Sloan said about $900,000 was disbursed to offi- Haig has a keen awareness of isolation of Presidency By BILL NEIKIRK Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) Gen. Alexander Haig the model of a modern political general, goes back to the White House with a keen awareness of the isolation of the Presidency. This time, however, Haig may be able to do something about it. President Nixon named the 48-year-old general, once a member of Henry Kissinger's staff, as interim successor to resigned Chief of Staff H.R. "Bob" Haldeman Friday. Haig's altitude about the Presidency was expressed in a recent interview, when he left Kissinger's staff to go back to the Pentagon as vice chief of staff of the Army. He said he left the White House with a deep awareness of "the essential loneliness of the presidential task I have a great deal of sympathy for any President." The isolation of the Presidency has been one of the issues emanating from the Watergate scandal, which resulted in Haldeman's resignation. Haig soon caught Nixon's and Kissinger's eyes when he went to the White House at the start of the Nixon administration in January 1969. He was a colonel then, a former deputy commandant at West Point. He bacame the acknowledged workhorse of Kissinger's staff, going on nine missions lo Vietnam for Nixon. He headed the advance party that planned Nixon's summit trip to Red China in 1972. Haig also was in charge of getting Kissinger through 12 secret missions to Paris during initial talks to end the Vietnam war. He said in the interview that he found his White House work "extremely exciting and extremely challenging." But he added that he left because "The time had come--four years is quite a long period to be away from the Army." During his tenure on Kissinger's National Security Council staff, Haig enjoyed a meteoric rise in rank, becoming a four- star general. When he left the NSC on Jan. 4 to become vice chief of staff of the Army, Haig said his ambitions were with the Army. He described himself as "an Army officer and a professional at heart." A 1947 graduate of West Point, the 5-foot-n Haig won the Distinguished Service Cross a battalion commander in Vietnam in 1967.

On objection from his attorneys, he did not say who got the money. Sloan said the identities of cash contributors might be found from a record of all ma jor contributors, on which cash donors were designated by a code. But asked if he knew whether it is still in existence today, Sloan not." Sloan said except for the documents which were destroyed or abstracted for continuing use, the rest were transferred to storage in New York, partly because they were no longer needed.
