Dean III says President Nixon told him in 1972 that George P. Shultz was not made secretary of the Treasury "to be some sort of candy ass" and would have to help get tax audits on Sen. George S. McGovern's campaign contributors. Former White House counsel Dean's testimony, released Thursday by the House Judiciary Committee, shows he also said Nixon did not order an alleged $75,000 hush money payment, but "the President felt it was desirable." Dean's closed-door July 11 testimony was released along with that of former Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell. Dean testified Nixon made the comment about Shultz when Dean reported to the President Sept. 15,1972, that then Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Johnnie Walters had refused Dean's request to audit a list of then Democratic presidential candidate McGovern's contributors. "He (Nixon) said something to the effect, well, if Shultz thinks he's been put over there to be some sort of candy ass, he is mistaken, and if you have got any problems, you just come tell me and I will get it straightened out," Dean quoted the President. Rep. Tom Railsback, R-I11., said at the committee's opening deliberations on impeachment Wednesday night that Nixon's alleged comment on Shultz is among evidence that could cause Railsback to vote for recommending impeachment. Shultz had become head of The Otter Tail County Planning Advisory Commission will hold a public hearing at 8 p.m. Aug. 7 in the County Courthouse in Fergus Falls to hear requests for special use permits. Requests include landscaping and road building projects on Big Pine, Wall, Dead, and Marion Lakes and along the Otter Tail River. The Police and Safety Committee will meet at noon Monday in the City Hall lunchroom to discuss police policy. the Treasury Department, which also includes IRS, three months earlier, June 12. Dean said that when he went back to IRS with Nixon's backing, Walters still refused to audit the McGovern contributors. Dean said he did not know if Nixon told Shultz to have the audits made. He testified the President launched a long discussion "about the IRS and not using it effectively and from there we immediately went to the fact that we were not using the entire apparatus of the government effectively and the changes that would be made after the election." On the alleged hush money, Dean testified he did not feel after the now famous March 21, 1973, meeting that Nixon had told him to arrange the $75,000 payment—but that Nixon did feel it was desirable to pay the money. "I had gone in with the intent of trying to turn off the payment to (Watergate conspirator E. Howard) Hunt," Dean testified. "I came out, having been turned around as far as the desirability." The President's lawyer, James D. St. Clair, called a series of witnesses including Dean, to try to establish that arrangements for the payment already had started and did not come directly from the Nixon meeting. Dean also confirmed some of Nixon's supporters' theory that the President's widely quoted "Well, for Christ's sake, get it" statement referred to getting a signal to Hunt rather than hush money. But Dean said the signal was a promise of hush money. Mitchell testified that Nixon's statements to "stonewall it ... cover up or anything else," and on "the coverup plan" and "containment" all referred not to Watergate but to executive privilege.

Lawyers differ on Reinecke testimony WASHINGTON (AP) - The prosecution, in its final arguments, said today California Lt. Gov. Ed Reinecke deliberately lied to protect John N. Mitchell, a "very powerful man" who could help Reinecke to become governor. But the defense contended that the government's perjury case is a "phoney deal" and, although "people make mistakes under oath, Reinecke does not lie." Reinecke is charged with lying to the Senate Judiciary Committee two years ago when he said he did not discuss with Mitchell a financial pledge from International Telephone & Telegraph Co. for the 1972 Republican national convention until after the Justice Department settled antitrust suits with the giant firm. Mitchell then was attorney general. Prosecutor Richard Davis said that Reinecke "embarked on a deliberate course to hide the facts that he told Mr. Mitchell of the ITT pledge in May, 1971"—before the antitrust settlement. "He lied to protect the still very powerful John Mitchell, a man who could help him become governor," said Davis. Defense Attorney James E. Cox said me government had "never laid a glove" on Reinecke in the trial. He said thai the defendant has never refused to answer questions in tht case, "He is such a candid, simple guy; he has never learned to dummy up and say 'I don't recall'," said Cox. Cox argued that the English language is imprecise and can be interpreted in different ways. In that light, Cox said, Reinecke answered the Judiciary Committee's questions as best he could.
