Gordon Sfrachan, former political assistant to fired White House aide H. R. Haldeman, testified at the Senate Watergate hearings that "the President knew we conducted extensive private polling, but t can't speak about whether He even worried how it was paid for." Sen. Howard Baker, R-Tenn., expressed surrpise that the White House felt it necessary to conduct the independent polls to learn the President's re-election chances t when similar polls already had been taken by his rejection committee and his party's national committee. Nixon carried 49 of me 50 states, losing only Massachusetts. "The very fact that private polling was undertaken by Haldeman secretly from the Republicans and the re-election g Senator DoleFeeb Ta WASHINGTON (UP!) - Sen, Robert J. Dole, who was Republican national chairman during the 10ft campaign, believes President Nixon hurt his public image when he refused to release the White House Watergate recordings. "My view is that at some time the tapes should be released," Dole said Monday. "My own view is that the revelation that these tapes are available hasn't helped' the President's cause with the American people." The Kansas senator said Nixon was probably "perfectly within his tights" in refusing access to the tapes and documents, but Dole said "we're reaching the point where in order to restore confidence there must be some dramatic move on his'part. "I just couldn't swallow the taping," Dole said. "Others have said Johnson and Kennedy did it. Well, 1 didn't vote for Johnson and Kennedy, I voted for Nixon." "There was a definite feeling of watTinc) Buaunii repueo. "There were numerous times when ma list of people with access to the poll results was cut down at Haldeman's direction." / Baker observed that "the image, is' coming through that wie nepunicBn convmuee oia not run the race, the re-election committee wtyeh. was set up didn't entirely run the race, but a committee at the White House headed by Haldeman and others ran the campaign." Strachan also testified that the polling organizations — which he didn't name^-were paid "something in excess of 1100,000"' for conducting the White House polls. He said the pollsters were paid in cash from kirge reserves maintained by the finance chairman of the re-election campaign, Maurice Stans. "Dean arranged with Stans to pay," Strachtan said, referring to another, fired White House aide, John W. Dean III, the President's former legal counsel.

Galva Planning Commission Recommends New Substation GALVA—The Galva Planning Commission will "recommend to the City Council tonight that the Minodis Power Co. be granted a special use permit to construct a power substation on West Division Street. The property consists of two lots in the 500 block of West Division Street on which the company has taken options for purchase. Three power company officials were present at Monday night's hearing and explained that the need for expanding present facilities will provide the area with adequate power in the future. No objections were made and the commission was unanimous in recommending the special use permit. Included was the requirement that power pedes erected to carry electricity to the north shall! be located within the company's fenced area. The new substation will be surrounded by a seven-foot high cyclone fence and topped with barbed wire. The entire area will be covered with white rock and the premises landscaped. There will be two entrances, both circular —one from West ("Division Street and the other from Southwest' Fifth Avenue. The highest portion of the substation construction will be 22 feet of lattice work steel.

Nader Seeks Ban on Sale Of VW Recreation Vehicle WASHINGTON (UPI) - Consumer advocate Ralph Nader has asked the government to ban sales in this country of a four-passenger Volkswagen recreational vehicle called "The Thing." Nader says it is unsafe. Nader and an associate, Dr. Carl Nash, said Monday the vehicle, built on the chassis of the VW Beetle, "is completely lacking in roll-over protection and protection against occupant ejection despite the well-known propensity of Volkswagens to overturn and despite the special hazards of overturning in off- road operation." They wrote James E. Wilson, acting administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, urging that import and sales of "The Thing" be barred until it is made to conform to federal safety standards for regular passenger cars. They also requested recall of the vehicles already marketed for installa tion of safety features. A spokesman for Volkswagen of America said the company had not seen Nader's statement but that the car "meets all those federal standards which War Moms Plan Future Activities ALTONA - Members of Al tona War Mothers made plans for future events at a recent potluck at the Kufus Building Members will meet for a sewing day Aug. 6,.when plans wil also be discussed for a district meeting Sept. £0.

Nader and Nash said the firm used a "loophole" which exempts so-called "multi-purpose" vehicles from passenger car safety standards'. They warned that American manufacturers will follow suit unless the government steps in. "The Thing" is designed as a dune and beach buggy and for other off-the-road driving. Nader and Nash said it lacks head restraints, proper seat belt features, occupant protection from interior impact, and other safety features required of passenger cars.
