2—Uklah Dally Journal Uklaft, Calif. Monday, July 15, 1974 Watergate committee report proposes new campaign laws WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Senate Watergate, committee presented every fact it could on the scandals of the 1972, presidential election without drawing any conclusions about the role of President Nixon. It proposed new campaign laws but decided the only way to prevent future Watergate* was for the nation to demand higher ethical standards of its leaders. It recommended creating a legal watchdog to make sure they do. Its televised hearings revealed hidden microphones and tape recorders in the White House, but the committee didn't get a single tape. It said its investigation was incomplete, largely because Nixon refused to give up the recordings it sought in a number of ways, including an unsuccessful suit. The final report was released Saturday and named all the names but one: Nixon's role not discussed. The four Democrats and three Republicans said they were "acutely conscious that ... the issue of impeachment of the President on Watergate-related evidence is now pending in the House of Representatives." The committee, backed by a 77-0 Senate vote, started' 17 months ago, with Sen. Sam J. Ervin holding up for television cameras a gavel carved by North Carolina Indians that would ring 1 throughout the homes of America as witness after witness brought the Watergate scandal closer to the White House. One, John W. Dean III, implicated Nixon himself. It ended last Friday where it began, the high-ceilinged Senate caucus room, with 10 pounds of bologna —an attempted riposte to White House press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler, who called a recent committee revelation "warmed-over baloney." The 2,217-page report made little news. Most of its major findings had been previously given to reporters, but the three green volumes provided the most thorough chronicle so far on the Watergate break-in and cover-up, alleged corrupt < campaign practices, the dairy controversy and the mysterious $100,000 Howard Hughes donation. The committee made 28 recommedations aimed at preventing "future Watergates" including a commission to supervise election spending and a permanent special prosecutor for cases involving high public officials. The report said "the conduct of many Watergate participants seems grounded on the belief the ends justified the means, that laws could be flaunted to maintain the present adminis­ tration in office. "The basic facts of the Watergate scandal have been exposed to public view and, as a result, the American people have been re-awakened to the task democracy imposes upon them —steadfast vigilance of the conduct of the public officials they choose to lead them," the report said. "Hopefully, after the flood of Watergate revelations the country has witnessed, the public can now expect, at least for some years to come, a higher standard of' conduct from its public officials and its business arid professional leaders," the committee said. "Also, it is hopeful that the Watergate exposures have created what former Vice President (Spiro T.) Agnew has called a . 'post-Water gate morality' where respect for law and morality is present." , No testimony was presented to corroborate Dean's charge that Nixon was involved in the cover-up, but several committee-members said they found nothing to discredit Dean, either. The report was primarily concerned with Republican excesses. "It should be noted that, irregularities in campaign financing were not limited to any particular candidate or party," the report said, but the only major charges against Democrats were that Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, D-Minn., and Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, D- Ark., received contributions from corporate funds. "The committee wishes to note that it has received no evidence suggesting any complicity in wrongdoing on the part of the Republican National Committee or the Democratic National Committee or its principal officers' during the price support would be announced the next day, that the pledge to the President's 1972 campaign was being reaffirmed to me as a principal fund-raiser.'.' The report,was divided info chapters that corresponded to the areas of investigation. These areas and capsule comments: Watergate break -in and cover- up —"The Watergate drama is still unfolding. Because all the facts are not yet in, because all the Watergate criminal trials and the impeachment proceeding are not concluded, and because the President has refused to produce to the Select Committee many crucial tape recordings and other evidence, this limited by these factors." The report said, however, there is evidence that former presidential campaign of 1972," the report said. A major charge was on the so? called "milk fund," report which discussed testimony taken June 13, from Herbert W. Kalmbach, formerly Nixon's personal lawyer and political fundraiser. Kalmbach said that .within hours after Nixon met with officials of milk cooperatives in 1971, Nixon's No. 2 aide, John D. Ehrlichman, scheduled a meeting apparently to tie a new increase in the price support for raw milk to a $2 million campaign pledge. Nixon met with the milk producers March 23,1971. Two days later, the Agriculture Department reversed a decision made earlier that month and raised the price support. The report quoted Kalmbach, now in prison for 1970 campaign violations, as saying: "I think ... that my understanding was simply, as I stated, that the , ....^.^.^...^ Attorney General John N. Mitchell, who was Nixon's campaign director, "reluctantly" approved the break-in —but. that the matter remains in doubt. Campaign practices, or "dirty tricks" —This section' discussed the activities of Donald Segretti, the so-called "political saboteur' ' who has gone to prison for distribution of illegal campaign literature in the Florida Democratic primary. But the final report deleted this statement from the draft: "It is President Nixon who must be held responsible and acc- countable for the actions of his subordinates. Not only was he the candidate on behalf of whom these activities were undertaken, he also set the moral and ethical standards by which, his re-election campaign operated." Good looks aren't catching By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB — Is it possible, when a woman is pregnant, to live with a man who is not the father of the child and when the baby is born the child will look like the man? Can this child more or less pick up the man's looks, eyes, hair, even though he is not the father? DEAR READER — The physical characteristics are determined by the genes. Half of the genes come from the mother and half from the father. Some of tl)e traits.that appear in the child may not resemble either parent because a less dominant gene was passed on to the child. That is how a child may look like someone else in the family besides the actual parents. "UlucfeDoiHi Journal Olfuiul (its Newspaper DEAN DeVRIES Publisher GEO. HUNTER „ Man. Ed. B.A. COBER Pub.

Any similarities are a 'coincidence or are characteristics the man also shared with the real father. J As the child gets older he may adopt mannerisms, posture and speech of the man he identifies as father, even though there may be no blood relationship. This can often give the impression of similarity. DEAR DR. LAMB — I have had a problem for the past year of retaining water. Once a week I take a pill to eliminate and relieve the swelling of some parts of my body. Is there perhaps another way, perhaps through drinking juices or eating certain foods which would help in a m6re natural : way? DEAR READER ^- That depends a lot on what is causing you to retain fluid. Many women have this problem in relation to their regular menstrual cycle. It is known as premenstrual retention. The cause here is the increased production of female hormone, specifically estrogen, in a cyclical fashion. The estrogen causes the body to retain salt. Water is retained, because the body is holding on to excess salt. Water retention can also be caused by heart disease, kidney disease, liver disease and in the legs by varicose veins, just to mention a few causes. In most of these problems (not varicose veins, however) the difficulty is caused by retention of excess amounts of salt. Normally the kidney eliminates the salt we don't need. When you take a pill to eliminate water it chemically causes the kidney to eliminate the excess salt, and the excess water goes with the salt. . The only nutritional approach . to this problem is to eat less salt. That may mean eliminating a lot of foods you need because they also contain salt in their natural form. I am thinking of milk and meat, in particular. The extreme form of a low-salt diet is the rice diet, which means eating only rice and fruit. I don't recommend this under any circumstances for anyone except under the careful management of a physician. Despite my remarks, I do think that you can help yourself some by avoiding salty foods and not using salt in your cooking or at the table. Usually this isn't enough to solve the problem completely, but you can try it. • I I i IMT MT1 (AJL 4 K. LAM Uewrlm§ AM C««ttr HAVING fROUBLE?

The officials emphasized that no consideration was being given to cutting, benefits for men who have already served in the military, but cited three reasons Sunday for ending GI Bill benefits: —Wartime service is no longer involved. —The men are now volunteers, not compelled to serve by the draft. —The pay increases in recent years have brought men and women in the service pay similar to civilians —approxi- mately $400 a month in pay and averaged benefits for a recruit. A past rationale for veterans' benefits was that service pay was so poor the men deserved special help afterwards. The Pentagon has strongly opposed any cutbacks in benefits since it uses them, as a recruiting lure. "We take down & Rehang Draperies" 462-3728 Eddington Cleaners 1719 S.
