Dean lit, former White House counsel to the President, to the Senate Select Committee probing the Watergate affair focused on tttiat President Niton knew about it and when. Waitriniton Window Sen Howard Bate, R-Tenn., vice chairman of the committee, spent considerable time quizzing Dean on the question of "what the President knew and when he knew it." And Dean, in turn, told irt great detail of a Sept. 15, 1972, meeting he had with Ni*on, concluding that in his own mind he felt the President at that revealing time knew of the. cover-up activities going on among member* of the too White House staffers and high offc cials of the Committee to ft«Elect the President (CRP). There is a difference of opinion among the seven committee members as to whether Dean was convincing on this point and it likely will require testimony from future witnesses to determine its full impact.

It is best summed up with Majority Counsel Sam Dash's question on the morning of June 28. It was: "In your statement, you have described a number of meet Price Freeze Is Peril to Supply CHICAGO (UPI) -The president of the American Farm Bureau Federation said Monday that the price freeze is jeopardizing "farm production" and will cause a food shortage if it isn't removed. In a letter to President Nixon, William J. Kuhfuss said. "Your actions tampering with the market system are regrettable. To jeopardize farm production and business expansion with politically set ceilings to placate uninformed consumers is inexcusable." He said consumers would face food shortage under the price freeze. "Under the retail- wholesale price freeze, many farmers are being forced to sell at a loss as many ceiling prices are below production costs," he said. He said producers of livestock, eggs, poultry and dairy products are cuting back output in an effort to avert losses. ings end activities occurring immediately after the arrest of the cftP burglars in the Democratic National Committee headquarters In the Watergate on June 17, '72, and continuing for several months thereafter, involving such per­ sons as Mr. (H.
