3A (RC) SaMdey, Jon. 5, 1974 Nixon Rejects Subpoenas For Tapes, Documents SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (AP) President Nixon's personal rejection of broad-scale Senate Watergate committee subpoenas for tapes and documents apparently will stand, even if the committee scales down its demands. Nixon used strong language Friday in telling committee Chairman Sam J. Ervin Jr. by letter, "I can only view your subpoenas as an overt attempt to intrude into the executive to a degree that constitutes an unconstitutional usurpation of power." Anticipating Nixon's reaction to three subpoenas for nearly 500 tapes and scores of documents, deputy committee counsel Rufus Edmisten had predicted the Senate panel would narrow its subpoenas "to the essentials." Nixon's letter was released simultaneously with an announcement that he has shaken up Ms Watergate legal defense staff, criticized recently by Press Secretary Ronald L. Ziegler as having made some mistakes he attributed to overwork. To replace J. Fred Buzhardt as special counsel and chief of the Watergate legal staff, Nixon named James D. St Clair, S3, of Boston. A senior partner IB the firm of Hale and Door, St Clair has lectured in law at Harvard University since 1955. Also removed from the handling of Watergate-related legal matters was former Nixon law partner Leonard Garment, who had been acting White House counsel since the firing of John W. Dean HI last April 30. Buzhardt, who had been loaned to the White House by the Defense Department, where he held the title of general counsel, was appointed White House counsel to succeed Dean. Garment was named an assistant to the President to specialize in cultural affairs, voluntary action programs and civil rights matters. Nixon wrote Ervin that "to produce the materials you now seek would unquestionably destroy any vestige of confidentiality of presidential com- munkations, thereby irreparably impairing the constitaUooal functions of the office of the presidency." He also argued it would "serve no legislative purpose which I can discern" and could impair the work of Special Watergate Prosecutor Leon Jaworski. Deputy Press Secretary Gerald L. Warren said St Clair met secretly with Nixon here Monday and participated in the decision to reject the committee subpoenas. la Washington, Ervin responded that "there's nothing in the Constitution of the United States that gives the President the power to withhold information concerning political activities cr information concerning illegal activities." In a statement issued through his office, Ervin said the committee's search for evidence was confined to those two categories. Nixon's rebuff to the subpoenas appeared certain to lead to a new court fight over access to White House documents and tapes of his private con- vensations. today in north Carolina ECU Medical School Drive Moves Ahead PAPERS -- While per- sonel papers from pubik figures like President Nixon and Sen. Hubert Humphrey ore approved tax deductions by the IRS, Jack Benny owes back taxes of $109,000 after a tax deduction on his gift of radio scripts and other memorabilia to a California university was disallowed. RALEIGH (AP)-Tbe drive to expand the medical program at East Carolina University picked up steam Friday as two legislative committees endorsed the proposal. The actions added atrength to ECU backers beading for a legislative showdown with the University of North Carolina Board of Governors. The two committees were the Joint House and Senate Committee on Health and the Senate Interim Committee on Education and Health. Sen Tom Strickland, D- Wayne, chairman of the Education and Health Committee said the only difference between the committee's position and that of the UNC board is that the ECU supporters are fighting for immediate expansion. Strickland said the committee's action "rejects the Board of Governors only if the board considers itself supreme." He noted that the General Assembly created the board. The joint House and Senate Committee on Health amended a reported from the Medical Manpower Study Commission to comply with the Board of Governors* request for nine area health education centers (ADHECs). The change, proposed by Rep. Julian Fenner, D-Nash, was considered by some observers as a concession to the Board of Governors.
