6—Uklahxpafly Journal, Uklah Calif. Monday. July 1, 1974 Merry-go-round Nofziger 'plants' Library celebrating • Native American Week Irish Beach report on commission agendo By JACK ANDERSON WASHINGTON — President Nixon has lived by the leak, just as he has been brought' low by the leak. In his attempt to control the flow of underground information from the White House, he has employed both plumbers and leakers. Indeed, those presidential since it was circulating around Washington at the time. As another "Nofziger Job," Caulfield testified in secret that he was asked to run "a name- check with the FBI" on moviemaker Entile De Antonio, who produced an anti-Nixon movie called "Millhouse: A White Comedy.;' spokesmen, who have ex- .... Caulfield got the obliging FBI pressed such grand moral to give him a summary of De outrage over the House impeachment leaks, are some of the best leakers in the business. We have made a careful study of presidential leaks, which are known in the backrooms of the White House 0 as "Nofziger Jobs," after . former presidential aide Lyft Nofziger who was a master of the leak. Not long after taking over the White House in 1969, President Nixon himself fashioned \ his public relations "strategy in a series of eight secret memos to his staff chief, H.R. Haldeman. In a typical memo, dated Sept. 22, 1969, the President called his aides' tactics ' ' i n a d e q u ate'' and "amateurish" and urged them to show more "bulldog" determination against people like Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass. As former aide Jeb Stuart Magruder has confided: "The most sophisticated student of public relations in the White House was...the President himself." The President's strategy included the adroit use of the leak. He favored staffmen Lyh Nofziger and Pat Buchanan, because of their excellent press contacts, to plant the stories the White House wanted sneaked, out. & The President's favorite target was always Sen. Kennedy. In an^attempt to link Kennedy , with Hanoi, for example, the President ~in- st rue ted Haldeman: "Buchanan's prudent primary group might get a major mailing out to editors and columnists in Massachusetts and perhaps even nationally, just setting forth the Hanoi •quote... Buchanan also should be able to get a columnist or two — and Nofziger could help in this respect — to pick up this line." Another time, Magruder planted an innocent picture of Kennedy and a beautiful woman, photographed on the streets of Rome, in a national scandal sheet. "It was later picked up by one of the news magazines," Magruder has confessed. Former White House special investigator Jack Caulfield has also told senators behind closed doors how he tried to float out a false story that the Kennedy family foundation had financed a newspaper series criticizing presidential pal Bebe Rebozo. Caulfield told the senators that he recommended "an oblique Nofiziger, an immediate drop vis-a-vis the Kennedys..." The bewildered Senate Watergate staff, uninitiated in the backroom lingo of the White House, didn't understand. "What did' that mean?" Caulfield was asked. He explained painstakingly: "Well, what I meant was that consideration be given to have Lyn Nofziger speak with friends that he had in the media (about) whether or not the Newsday article was , financed by the Kennedy Foundation." Nofziger told us he did not leak the story. But someone did, Antonio's file, including raw data. Afterward, Caulfield reported jubilantly to his superiors: "If (Democratic national chairman Larry) O'Brien is stupid enough to get behind (the film), we can, armed with the Bureau's information, do a Nofziger Job on De Antonio and> 0 'Brien.'' Again, a committee investigator wanted to know: "Whatdo you mean,..a Nofziger Job?" "What I , mean," again , recounted Caulfield, "is let him, Lyn Nofziger, whose talents in that area were much greater than anyone else around the White House make that known to his contacts. in the media." This particular "Nofziger Job," however, was aborted — possibly because the White House didn't want to advertise the movie even with unfavorable publicity. At the same time that President Nixon made skillful use of leaks to smear his political foe^s, he Went to elaborate, even illegal lengths to stop leaks about himself. He was a man haunted-by dark secrets which he feared might leak out and drive him from public office. So he formed the para-police plumbers unit, which was supposed to plug up unauthorized leaks/sAnother ex- White House leaker, Charles Colson, has acknowledged in his courtroom confession that the plumbers broke into the offices of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist, however, not to plug a leak but to get dirt against Ellsberg to leak out. Ironically, most of the White House horrors, which have by now effectively destroyed the presidency of Richard Nixon; were committed in reaction to press leaks in an attempt to stop them. Footnote: In a future column we will describe more of the secret White House leaks. Vital statistics MARRIAGE LICENSES ISSUED Kenneth Mural Stephens, 24, and Phyllis Ann Smith, 24, both of Willits.

The Mendocino County Library has declared July 1-6 Native American Recognition, Week and invites county residents to take* part in the celebration. ' . The county library is the first in the state to receive funds to establish a complete collection of materials by and about Native Americans.

During the week, the display case in the library will contain a collection of bead and shell work which has been assembled by the Mendo-Lake Pomo Council. This organization, which has for several years won the top awards in Ukiah's Festival Parade, has arranged Pomo basketry displays which Will be on view Monday and Wednesday. The library is proud to announce Native American Recognition Week and hopes all residents of the county will at some time familiarize themselves with the rich heritage of the Indian which is available through the printed word. Native Americans are especially invited to attend the festivities at the library. Hides Air Force destroyed UFO report—Zander AUSTIN, Tex. (UPI) — Twenty-six years ago the Air Force prepared a report that proved Unidentified Flying Objects were actually spacecraft from other planets but the report was destroyed, according to a physics professor at East Texas State University. Dr. Arlen Zander said UFOs should be taken seriously, especially by those who could study-them and prepare serious data about them. "A good hard look at some of the serious evidence, the photographic evidence, the physical traces certainly should not leave any doubt in the true scientist's mind that there is something unidentified involved," Zander said Sunday on the Public Broadcasting Service's television program "Capitol Eye." • Zander said 26 years ago the Air Force assigned a task force with the code name "Project Sign" to study UFOs and issue a documented report. "In September of 1948 Project Sign issued a top secret status report and the conclusions of this status report was that UFOs are truly extraterrestial craft," he said. Zander' said the Air Force chief of staff refused to accept the conclusions presented in the report and ordered all copies of it destroyed. Zander said many more UFOs than reported are sighted by persons afraid of public ridicule. Sheinwold on bridge Missing card causes trouble According to the fortunetellers, the four of clubs is a card of warning. If there is no four of clubs in your deck, you have a legitimate complaint, but don't scream until you're sure that the fault lies with the deck, i West dealer Neither side vulnerable NORTH • , • KQ104 , 9 J3 O 75 4k A Q 10 7 3 EAST WEST 4) 76S V AQ5 0 AK9 8 3 4» 64 • 2 108 6 4 ,0 J 10 6 2 * K985 SOUTH 4> AI983 V K972 O Q4 + J2 f West North East South ro 24 20 2• 3 0 3 • All Pass Opening lead —OK West took two -top diamonds and then shifted to a spade.

South won with the jack of clubs and returned a low heart. He could afford to give up two hearts since he was not going to lose a club trick. Strange Play Why didn't South take the normal finesse in clubs? If East won a club trick, he would return a heart, enabling the opponents to take two hearts. If West won a club trick, , however, be could take only one heart; after that dummy's clubs would be ready for discards. The best chance to stop East from winning a club trick was, to IT'S FLY TIME AGAIN NOW! NOW! GET ALL THOSE OLD SCREENS « DOORS RESCREENED NOW!

If South had it, he would have taken the normal club finesse. If West had it, his play of the six of clubs was an obvious doubleton signal.

Don Clausen; R-California, Friday announced that the House of Representatives approved legislation he sponsored to extend the Public Works and Economic Development Act for two years. It a statement made during general debate on the floor of the House, the Redwood Empire congressman said that "this two year extension, which authorizes a total funding level of over $l billion, along with demonstration programs for special economic development and adjustment assistance, will add to the tools we possess to meet the economic heeds of the nation. "The Economic Development Administration," Clausen said, "has served the nation's economically lagging areas well, providing essential public facilities, grants and loans, business loans, technical assistance, and the vital organization structure of economic development districts, to cope with economic decline. "The many projects in which. EDA is involved in our own North Coast area serve as graphic illustration of EDAs successful performance, partnership with private enterprise and local government. "It's been estimated," Clausen concluded, that for approximately every $2,800 spent under EDA, one $6,000$8,000 job is created.
