J' 7**" , ^ Nkon adtniaifltratttfi W a list of about 200 political "enemies" •Including actors, journalists, professors, businessmen and senators—and John W. Dean III dfew up a plan to give some of them a "hard time," Dean testified Wednesday. The ousted presidential counsel gave the Senate Watergate Committee a copy of an Aug. 16, 1971, memorandum he said he wrote, marked "confidential" and entitled: "Dealing With our Political Enemies." "This memorandum,'' the document began, "addresses the matter of how we can maximize the fact of our Incumbency ni dealing with persons known to be active in their opposition to our administration. Stated a bit more bluntly—haw we can use the available federal machinery to screw our political enemies." Among those "enemies" the administration was urged to give priority to were .United Auto Workers President Leonard Woodcock, actor Paul Newman and CBS correspondent Daniel Schorr. Steps Outlined Most of those included on the list of 200 said John Kenneth Galbraith Harold J. Gibbons Paul Newman Chet Huntley targets for concentration," he wrote. A month later, on Sept. 14, Dean addressed a memo to White House aide Larry Higby on "persons who have both the desire and capability of harming us." With it—and also turned over to the committee — was a list of 20 names described as "worthwhile for go status." Dean said the 20 names had been picked by White House aide Charles W. Colson. Colson later issued a statement denying this. It was not clear from Dean's testimony what the list of 200, which he said was added to and subtracted from occasionally, was for. He said it mostly sat in his files. Colson said there All on Administration*8 List of Enemies s nothing "unusual" about The honored to see they their were names there.
