UNIFAX Hugh Scott Calls Dean 'Em bezzler 9 WASHINGTON (UPI) - Senate Republican leader Hugh Scott today said ousted White House counsel John W. Dean IH is an "embezzler." Dean reportedly has told Senate Watergate investigators that he took $4,850 from Nixon campaign funds to pay for his wedding and honeymoon, and later put a check for that amount back in the fund. Without mentioning Dean's name, Scott told reporters, "It looks'as if our hero is also an embezzler. "I merely suggest that men who are embezzlers can also be liars," Scott said. "It's a very short step down. "He's everybody's hero," Scott said, "the hero of those who hate the President. "There is nothing so incredible that this turncoat would not be willing to testify in return for a reward," he said. "The embezzler is so well known he doesn't require identification," Scott said. Dean, who will testify before the Senate committee Tuesday, reportedly is prepared to tell of high White.House involvement in the Watergate coverup. Scott prefaced his remarks to newsmen by asking, "Are any of you planning to get married? I know where you can get a loan...with no interest." Campaign Finance Committee Found Guilty, Fined $3,000 WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Finance Committee for the Reelection of President Nixon was found guilty today on three counts of violating the campaign disclosure law because it did not report a $200,000 cash contribution from financier Robert L. Vesco. U.S. District Judge George L. Hart Jr., imposed the maximum fine of $1,000 on each of the three counts after delivering the guilty verdict in the nonjury trial. Hart said that the Vesco contribution was not reported and that no records were kept of it by the Finance Committee for the Re-election of the President as required by the Federal Campaign Act of 1971. "This clearly was a contribution under the new act," Hart said, disagreeing with the Nixon re-election committee that because the money was pledged before the act went into effect on April 7, 1972, it did not have to be reported. Hart said the contribution did have to be reported because the money was delivered three days after the new law went into effect on April 7, 1972. The committee's attorney, Kenneth W. Parkinson, said no decision had been made on whether to appeal the case. Hart gave the committee 10 days to appeal. CAMP DAVID, Md. (UPI) President Nixon and Soviet leader Leonid I. Brezhnev, nearing the halfway point in their summit talks, considered the delicate problem of arms control today in the tightly guarded confines of this mountaintop retreat Before the two leaders began their session, Treasury Secretary George P. Shultz and Soviet Foreign Trade Minister Nikolai Patolichev signed the fifth agreement of the summit meeting in Washington—an income tax treaty reflecting joint hopes for increased trade. Nuclear Pact Nixon and Brezhnev both flew by helicopter to Camp David Tuesday night. They were said to be focusing on the search for a pact limiting offensive nuclear weapons as a compan- Connally Not Unhappy, But Will Leave WASHINGTON (UPI) - John B. Connally insisted today he is not unhappy in his role as an unpaid adviser to President Nixon, but conceded he is "catching up on his reading" and hopes to leave the White House by midsummer to return to his law practice. The former Treasury secretary, in a 45-minu|te news conference sprinkled with humor, also said he believes the Phase IV economic program which will follow the present 60-day price freeze must include such tough measures as mandatory controls on inflation-prone industries. Connally denied published reports that he had urged Nixon to fire Press Secretary Ronald L. Ziegler, but he pointedly refused to say if he had suggested to the President that Ziegler should be transferred to other work. ion agreement to the far- reaching defensive arms accord they reached in Moscow a year ago. Officials on both sides said Nixon's bargaining with the general secretary of the Soviet Communist party would not culminate in an arms control agreement this week, but could spur progress in negotiations that have been going on for months in Geneva. Military Cutback The Nixon-Brezhnev meeting, third in the series planned this week, also was expected to include broad international issues such as the cutback of Soviet and American forces in Europe and continuing tensions in Southeast Asia, the Middle East and other areas. Nixon and Brezhnev, staying in separate lodges at the Alpine-like complex, went to Camp David after a cruise Tuesday night down the Potomac aboard the presidential yacht Sequoia. Bad weather forced their helicopter to land outside the nearby town of Thurmont, where limousines were waiting to take them up the winding seven-mile road to the top of the mountain. Earlier Tuesday, the Soviet Communist party general secretary lobbied members of Congress at a four-hour lunch of vodka and caviar, roast beef and baked shrimp, champagne and pineapple ice cream, seeking "most favored nation" tariff treatment for the Soviet Union. There has been a move in Congress to deny the „ most favored nation treatment until the Soviets permit free emigra­ tion. Brezhnev insisted in his remarks to the congressmen that almost all Jews who wish to leave his country are free to do so. White House spokesman Ronald L. Ziegler said the talks specifically would focus on nuclear disarmament and efforts to mutually reduce conventional forces in Central Europe. He said they also were likely to touch on such areas of tension as the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Both leaders have publicly given assurances that their talks will set forth a political framework in which detailed negotiations to control both the quality and quantity of strategic weapons can move to a speedy conclusion. At the Moscow summit 13 months ago, they, signed an agreement freezing offensive nuclear weapons for a period of five years at current levels and limiting defensive nuclear weapons to two sites in each country. Since that time, U.S. JVid Soviet negotiators have been seeking to expand the agreement to more permanent limitations and to deal with the complicated problem of restricting development of missiles with multiple warheads and other sophisticated weaponry. U.S. officials have said they do not expect a firm agreement on this issue to result from the current summit meeting but they have said it was possible political decisions would be made which would speed the negotiating process and result in a new treaty within a year to 18 months. The lunch hosted by Brezhnev Tuesday at Blair House near the White House was private, but several of the senators mho attended described the proceedings to newsmen. Brezhnev delivered a two-hour speech then briefly answered questions. The meeting with the lawmakers was so long that the Soviet Leader was three- quarters of an hour late for his scheduled afternoon meeting, with Nixon. Brezhnev did not refer to Jewish emigration—which the Soviets consider an internal matter which should not concern the Americans—during his speech. But he was ready with arguments and statistics when the matter was raised by Sens. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., and Robert Griffin, R-Mich. U.S., Soviet Union Sign Tax Treaty Tax Treaty Signed Soviet Minister of Foreign Trade Nikolai S. Patolichev laughs and puts his hand on Treasury Secretary George Shultz's back after the two signed an income tax treaty between the U. S. and Soviet Union today in a ceremony at the Treasury Dept. UNIFAX WASHINGTON (UPI) - The| United States and the Soviet Union today signed a tax treaty that Treasury Secretary George P. Shultz called "an im(portant building block in the development of the commercial rela I tionships between our two countries." Shultz and Soviet Foreign Trade Minister Nikolai S. Patolichev initialed the document in a ceremony on the south portico of the Treasury Department. It was the fifth agreement to emerge thus far ' | tGrom the summit between President Nixon and Soviet Party leader Leonid I. Brezh­ nev. The treaty, which must be ratified by the Senate, is designed to eliminate double taxation of citizens and companies of one country residing in the other. A Treasury official described it as "on the whole, more al tax conventions the United States has with 35 other nations. Before the ceremonial signing, Patolichev pledged to Shultz: "I will do everything as agreed here." . "I'll shake on that," Shultz replied, extending his hand and smiling broadly. The two officials clasped hands and the crowd of about 100 dignitaries applauded. The treaty is designed to eliminate tax barriers and specifies a number of exemptions. Mosit U.S. citizens residing in the Soviet Union for less than six months will not have to pay a Russian income tax. Thereafter, they are subject to Soviet taxation but will get a credit on their U.S.^returns for that amount. Shultz also showed the Soviet official a commemorative plaque that will be placed on (the oak table on which the favorable" than similar bilater- 1 treaty was signed.

Dean III told Senate investigators that President Nixon successfully stalled a 1972 congressional investigation of the Watergate bugging and requested that tax audits on some of his friends be halted, a summary of Dean's testimony revealed today. The seven-page, single-spaced summary also showed Dean testified that Nixon said he had been informed that his 1968 campaign was bugged, and that Nixon asked for a list of troublesome reporters. The summary of Dean's testimony to the Senate Watergate committee in secret session on Saturday is expected to be the basis of Dean's testimony when the public nationally televised hearings resume Tuesday. The summary first was disclosed late Tuesday by Paul Duke of NBC News. In terse language, the summary said (the quotes are not necessarily Dean's): "Dean met with the President after the indictments had been handed down. Haldeman was there. Nixon said that Haldeman had reported what a good job Dean had done. Nixon said that Hoover had told him that Nixon had been bugged in the 1968 campaign and Nixon said that some time in the future they would have to use it to their advantage. "Nixon said Tirnjmons should get on the Patman hearings arid make sure it didn't get out of hand. Nixon told Dean he hoped Dean was keeping a list of press who were giving flhem trouble and they would take care of ithem after the election. Nixon said that the Democrats had always had effective use of IRS audits, but they had failed. "Dean has documents where President Nixon requested that tax audits be turned off on friends of his. Haldeman was taking notes at this meeting. White House and CRP (Committee for the Re-Election of the President) blocked Patman hearings by bringing pressure on people to vote against subpoenaing witnesses." The meeting of Dean, Nixon' and then-White House chief of staff H.R. Haldeman would have taken place after the September indictments of the original defendants in the June 17 bugging of the Democratic national offices in the Watergate complex. At the time, Rep. Wright Patman, D-Tex., chairman of the House Banking Committee, was beginning an investigation of Watergate. William E. Timmons was the White House congressional liaison. The Patman investigation ended inconclusively. UPI aiso learned today Dean told the Senate investigators that John D. Ehrlichman urged him to .pressure the CIA into providing assistance, apparent­ ly for a cover-up of the Watergate, nine days after the break-in June 17,1972. According to sources close to the case, Dean told investigators Saturday that Ehrlichman, one of President Nixon's top two advisers until his recent resignation, asked him to pressure Deputy CIA Director Vernon Walters because Walters "owes allegiance to the White House." Sources told UPI that Dean's preliminary testimony to the committee staff also included these points: —Dean said that in early 1972 he told H. R. Haldeman, then White House chief of staff, that he had attended two meetings in the office of then Attorney General John N. Mitchell at which political espionage and wiretapping were discussed. Dean said the meetings were Jan. 27 and Feb. 4, 1972. —Haldeman replied, according to Dean, that Dean should stay "out of it" —apparently meaning that Dean should not become involved in such plans. He Thought Plans Rejected —Dean said he thought all the plans discussed at the two meetings were rejected and ho knew no more about wiretapping the Democrats until June 17 when five men were arrested See 6 Dean'« (Continued on Page 31) j :1!«i:!l|illl|fi!l! ! ! iIi !ll»ii»lliSl«IllllI!
