by LLOYD SHEARER BECAUSE OF VOLUME OF MAIL RECEIVED PARADE REGRETS IT CANNOT ANSWER QUERIES ABOUT THIS COLUMN. MCTMS ME CONF1KNT THAT NIXON WU REGAIN HIS FULL HEALTH. FT IS DOUBTFUL, HOWEVEI, HE WU EVEIREGAIN HIS 6000 STAN0M6 AS A LAWYBL Lawyer- members of the Nixon Administration and lawyers who helped arrange illegal campaign contributions to the Nixon Administration have probably fomented more harm and ill-will for the legal profession than the law- "yers of any other era. According to. John G. Bonomi, chairman of the special committee on Watergate discipline of the National Organization of Bar Counsel, 27 involved lawyers as of this writing have,either been disbarred, censured, suspended, or placed under ^ disciplinary investigation.-- "/-.';' ,:;.-;..: :V"' - . In addition' to such well- known names as Charles Coison, John Dean^ Harry Dent, John Ehrliehman, Jake Jacobsen, Herbert Kalmbach, Spiro Agnew, Richard KLeindienstv Egil Krogh, Gordon idddy, Robert Mardian, John Mitchell, and of course, Richard Nixon--sadly, too i there are Frank DeMarco, David R. Young, Claude Wild, Gordon Strachan, George Spater, Donald Segretti, Harry Sears* Stuart Russell, Kenneth Parkinson, Harold. Kelson, Edward Morgan, John Melcher, Orin Atkins and James Sanseen; The most publicized of all these legal lights is Richard Nixon, who practiced law. in New York City from 1963 to 1968 and subsequently became a $250,000-per-year senior partner in the law firm of Nixon, Mudge, Rose, Guthrie, Alexander Mitchell. last year the California state bar was about to censure or disbar Nixon when he forestalled that action by resigning from the association. He admitted in his letter of resignation that he was under disciplinary action at the time. Comes soon the disbarment proceedings of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York against Richard M. Nixon, an unindicted-co-conspira- tor in the Watergate felonies. Mr. Nixon is aware of the New York City Bar Association's ongoing inquiry into his past behavior. The inquiry will undoubtedly result in hearings if Nixon chooses to partake In them. If not, he .can resign. But if he does resign, he must then .admit in his letter or statement-of resignation that he cannot defend tie charges brought against him on their merit. Should Nixon choose that course,, his resignation will probably approximate the closest confession of guilt he is ever about to make--memoirs or no memoirs--concerning .Watergate and the character of his Presidency* For years the People *s Republic of | China scorned tennis as'a £ game of "bourgeois deca- £ dence." Two years ago the S Chinese changed their out- g look, quietly organized £ tennis tournaments in Peking and Shanghai. \ Now, convinced that they have developed players who will not embarrass Chair-, man Mao, the People's Republic has applied for ·membership to the International Lawn Tennis Federation. Australia has been asked to support China's application and undoubtedly will. Come July the ILTF is expected to rule favorably on China's request. If the Chinese are as skilled at tennis as they are at table tennis, a Chinese Jimmy Connors may soon dominate international play. The higher a husband's educational level, the more willing he is to help with household chores. The lower his level, the more likely he is to hold that household work is "women's work." - So- says John H. Scanzoni, professor of sociology at Indiana University, in his book, '"Sex Roles, Life Styles and Children: Changing Pat- · terns in Marriage and Childbearing." ,..' Scanzoni, with a grant from the U.S. Public Health Service, interviewed 3000 households in Ohio, Wisconsin,·Michigan and Indiana. His book advances the theory that . people grow up desiring particular rewards while avoiding particular costs. Traditionally men have en,} oyed the rewards of having a family and a wife tp look after the children. "Now," Scanzoni maintains, "women are saying we want more rewards of autonomy and freedom.; They want the same things that men have had for a long - time. I think,·" he asserts , "women's demand for autonomy is a fundamental source that is beginning to permeate society." Scanzoni believes .that if both parents share the household duties and the care- of the children, then "the children will emulate their parents when they grow up. "The children," he maintains, "will grow up realizing that there are lots of undesirable tasks that have to be done around the house and the best way to get them done is for everyone to pitch in and help." As for compartmentalizing "men's work," and "women*s^work," Scanzoni says, "Men and women are more like than they are different from each other. Therefore we should . stress their similarities and the fact that they are persons in their_.own right."
