Golesburg Register-Mail, Galesburg, III. Tuesday, July17, 1973 5 Putnam Bug Probe Block a Blunder? By DON PHILLIPS WASHINGTON (UP I) Those Who worked to hide high- level involvement in the Watergate bteak-in probably blundered when they moved to block a House investigation of the scandal last October. power, died. Look Washington Window According to testimony by John W. Dean, high administration officials feared that the investigation would begin unraveling the cover-up just before the presidential election. White House congressional liaison men worked with friendly congressmen to prevent Chairman Wright Patman, D -fex M of the House Banking Committee from getting the subpoena power he needed to force testimony from reluctant witnesses and to pry loose hidden records. In early October, the Banking Committee voted 20 to 15 not to give Patman his subpoena what replaced it: Ervin Committee.' Picture of Decorum True, the Ervin investigation did not start until after the election) but there is a question whether Patman would have been able to do any damage to President Nixon in the short time before the election. A recent poll indicated that in spite of a sharp drop in popularity, Nixon could still defeat George S. McGovern now. If the Banking Committee had been allowed to start its For Th« Most In Complete Insurance Protection SEE YOUR INDEPENDENT AGENT TODAY HUFF INSURANCE 407 HILL ARCADE Galesburg Ph. 342-3414 and the investigation the investigation, the Ervin committee might never have been formed. Congressional leaders might have been satisfied with one investigation, or House hearings might have resulted in such partisan wrangling that neither Congress nor the country would have been ready for yet another investigation. The Ervin Committee seems to be a picture of decorum. Partisan squabbles are few and far between. On the other hand, Democrats and Republicans often appear to be choosing sides for a tug-of-war rather than answering a roll call at Banking Committee meetings. During sessions to draw up aj Wage -price control program, Democrats and Republicans engaged in shouting matches. And in that carnival atmosphere, the bill was sandbagged with so many liberal amendments — with conservative Republicans pushing the most liberal moves —that it could not possibly pass the House. An Uncompromising Figure Patman tends to be somewhat autocratic in running the committee, often cutting off Republicans in mid-sentence and sometimes refusing to recognize them or their motions. Nobody on either side of the political fence doubts Patman's sincere beliefs. He is an uncompromising figure with a populist's love of the little fian and a distrust of bankers and money-lenders. But neither does anyone doubt that Patman is a strongly partisan Democrat. Democrat-Republican infighting might have turned any Banking Committee hearings into confusion, and Americans might have turned off both their television sets and their minds to Watergate. With Patman's drive and his staff's expertise, there is little doubt that he would have uncovered much of what is now unfolding before the Ervin committee. But it would have been easier for Americans to continue believing, as many did for months, that Watergate was just politics. House Votes Food Price 'Thaw' WASHINGTON (UPI) - The House has voted to give the agriculture secretary power to take off the freeze in prices on any foods which are in short supply. The surprise action came Monday without debate on a voice vote as the House considered the omnibus farm bill. UNDER THE amendment, offered by Rep. Harold V. Froelich, R-Wis., action to boost controlled wholesale or retail food prices could be triggered if the agriculture secretary told the President that the supply of a particular item would be "reduced to unacceptably low levels" if it were kept under a freeze. . Once the President had that certification he would be compelled to make "appropriate adjustments" in price regulations for any items covered by the certification of an existing or threatened shortage. FROELICH SAID he believed his amendment was need­ ed because shortages of meat, poultry and other items are developing under the current price freeze. Administration officials have indicated some increases in retail and wholesale prices will be permitted in Phase IV so that increases in raw farm product costs can be fully or partially passed on to consumers. Earlier Monday, farm bloc leaders stripped the cotton sections from the farm bill to pave the way for Senate- House consideration of an eventual compromise. The action nullified the earlier House crackdown on payments to big cotton growers. IT ALSO wiped out a House vote to end a program of $10 million a year in federal grants to a controversial cotton promotion program. The Senate had voted to continue the grants,-so the final fate of the program will also be left up to a conference.

Mission commander Alan L. Bean, scientist-pilot Owen K. Garriott amd pilot Jack R. Lousma were spending today practicing how to replace film for their battery of solar study instruments. They were also continuing briefings on the scientific objectives of their eight-week flight in the 86-ton space station. Launch officials reported no problems with either the Apollo command ship that will ferry the crew to Skylab or the Saturn IB rocket that will propel the space pioneers into orbit. Because of the proven reliability of the Saturn IB and the Apollo craft, the astronauts will not be taking part in the countdown dress rehearsal, which for the first time is part of the real count. The rehearsal will end with a mock launch at 7:08 a.m. EDT Friday, exactly eight days before Bean, Garriott and Lousma are set to take off. Launch pad crews were continuing today to hook up explosive devices that will be fired for separating the ferry iJ ship from the rocket just after liftoff.
