4B _Mmbum Wednesday, June J3, , 1973 Nixon May Have Dropped un By NORMAN KEMPSTER WASHINGTON (UPI) President Nixon appears to have muted —and may have abandoned entirely —the na tional security . counterattack strategy for dealing with the Watergate scandal.. You might say they ran it up the flagpole and almost nobody saluted it. Bug Answer Washington Window Fourth Graders: Bugging 'Deskusts' By TOM TIEDE SADDLE RIVER, N.J. (NEA) — It has been observed that the doings of adults are often less confusing than merely annoying to children. The saga of Watergate seems to bear ithis out — at leash among many of the fourth grade students in this community's Wandel School. Teachers asked two classes of the 9-10-year-olds "What is your reaction to Watergate?" The answers indicate (1) the reaction is basically "de- skust" and (2) the wisdom of the world is not solely a province of the aged. WHILE SEVERAL children replied honestly that they did not know anything about Watergate, which . is probably what a good many adults should say but don't, and while a bemused few diplomatically defined Watergate simply as something that releases water in which one can go "swashing around," the majority offered brief but sage opinions.-Examples: "I herd they buged the pre- sedets offes and they hid 1a mike in a cigeret." "I don't like it! It's Robbery." "I think the President sent men to Me about him. There­ for the people were dieted into voting for him." "I think it was deskusting." "Descusting ! ! !" "I just £\ope ifchey have (make) peace." "I THINK PRESIDENT Nixon was involved because they couldn't of been bugging the phones and listening in on plans all behind Mr. Nixons back." "My name is Vicky!" "Discussting." keejft . toi ^yflfr. •VWe, yVtto&.s J^WIn^ "It's the 1972 Nixon capiom tampring with the 72 Mogov- ern capion and all the goodi TV shows off the air." Only a few of the children in this heavily Republican area sided flatly with Richard Nixon. One said he didn't •think Nixon should be "em- peached", and added: "I think McCord should of shut his mouth and listened to the President." Another wondered why Martha Mitchell is mak- Segretti Trial in October TAMPA, Fla. (UPI) Donald H. Segretti, the young Los Angeles lawyer accused of political sabotage against the Democrats, gets a federal trial in October unless he can convince the trial judge to dismiss charges against him. U.S. Magistrate Paul Game Jr. refused at a hearing Tuesday to dismiss the charges handed down by a federal grand jury at Orlando. He told defense attorney Raymond LaPorte the dismissal motion would have to be argued before U.S. District Court Judge Ben Krentzman. Game set Segretti's trial for the fall term of court, beginning Oct. 8. Segretti was excused from a personal appearance at the hearing. He had pleaded innocent when arraigned last month and asked for a jury trial. Segretti and Tampa accountant George Hearing were indicted on charges of publishing and distributing, and conspiring to distribute, a phony letter on campaign stationery of Democratic presidential candidate Edmund Muskie on the eve of the March, 1972 Florida presidential primary. The letter attacked the moral character of Sens. Henry Jackson and Hubert Humphrey, who also were running in the Florida Democratic primary. Muskie immediately denied any knowledge of the letter at the time and Jackson has been sharply critical of the government for delays in the investigation. The official charges name only Muskie and Jackson in connection with the letter. Hearing earlier pleaded guilty to distributing the letter and is scheduled for sentencing Friday. He pleaded innocent to conspiracy and that charge is expected to be dismissed. John the Baptist ate locusts and wild honey in the wilderness, according to the Book of Matthew in the Bible.

And a third said simply: "I think Miegov- ern must have something ta hide or this hole thing wouldn't have happened." BUT OF ALL THE opinions perhaps the one from a lass named Terry Ann is most appropriate. She wrote: "I don't know why the Republicans had to spy on the dema- crots for. Because if nixon was a good president he wouldn't have to know what the democrats were doing." In his 4000-word statement on May 22, Nixon said he had placed restrictions on the FBI investigation of the Watergate bugging, to make sure the probe would not, compromise national security activities. He also said . he previously had personally authorized wiretaps and approved a plan (which he said was never put into effect) that would have condoned burglary to obtain intelligence information. All of this, he said, was justified by needs of national survival. The strategy, reportedly worked out in a series of secret White House meetings, was to suggest the nation had greater dangers to its security than the bugging of the Democratic national headquarters or subse- qlent cover-up efforts. S6me in the White House may have thought that by implying that the publication of the Pentagon Papers and other news leaks had endangered national security, the news Soviet summit, had we not had free, in large part because the secret negotiations over a period of time with the Chinese leaders, let me • say quite bluntly, there would have be^n no China initiative, there would have been no limitation of arms for the Soviet Union and no summit —and you men would still be in Hanoi. "Nixon was criticized by some people who had supported him on most other issues for injecting irrelevant issues into the Watergate debate." reports of wrongdoing by administration officials —many of them based on leaks and unnamed sources —could be discredited. The strategy hit a high point two. days after the May 22 statement. Addressing cheering returned prisoners of war, Nixon said: "Had we not had secrecy, had we not had secret negotiations with the North Vietnamese, had we not had secret negotations prior to the I "I' think it is time in this country to quit making national heroes out of those who steal secrets and publish them in the newspaper." Nixon was criticized even by some people who had supported him on most other issues, for injecting irrelevant issues into the Watergate debate. Alpo by pointedly referring to Daniel Ellsberg, the man who acknowledged giving the Pentagon Papers to the newspapers, Nixon called attention to the fact that Ellsberg had just gone White House "plumbers" had burglarized the office of his psychiatrist. (Last Friday Nixon made a commencement address at Florida Technological University Irt Orlando, a campus the White House said was selected for its "solid middle-America student body." But instead of advancing the counterattack, the President ignored Watergate, government secrecy and national security and instead, urged his listeners lo concentrate more on what's right with America than on the nation's troubles. . , , Vice President Spiro T. Agneiw may have signaled a new direction for the administration's anti-Watergate, 'effort Monday in a St. Louis speech criticizing the Senate's Ervin Committee for holding televised hearings which he said would interfere with the future prosecution of the guilty. He did not cite national security; he only deplored the lack of coutroom safeguards for the rights of the accused.
