"Every President needs his sob., and I'm Nixon's," Bob Haldeman was fond of saving. Personality Spotlight His detractors* and they seemed legion, complained that he was too pluperfect an sob. His supporters, and they often seemed few, said that if Haldeman didn't exist Nixoo would have had to invent him. But Haldeman cared not for his detractors nor his supporters. He saw as Ns job to protect the President, to shield him from the favor-seekers end the power-brokers and the pests. Did Job Wen Detractors and supporters alike said he did that job well. Those who liked him said his was a necessary function if the President wis not to get bogged down in minutla. Those Who disliked him said he was too successful, that Haldeman caused Nixon to operate out of an ivory tower and to run the country as a benevolent patriarch who didn't trust his children.

On April 30, with deepest regret and with public feudings for their loyalty and ability, Nixon accepted the resignations of Haldeman and his UCLA roommate,' John D. Ehrlichman. "Hans" and "Fritz," as Haldeman and Ehrlichman ! were called—but not. to their faces—were Nixon's chief of sfaff and chief domestic adviser, J respectively. They tendered their resignations following resh of published reports that they may have been involved in the planning and cover-up of the Watergate bugging. Few Broken Up There were few sorrowful expressions at the White House or on Capitol Hill when the news broke. Crewcut, formidable-looking Haldeman had won a reputation for the ruthless exercise of power and unques lioning loyalty to Nixon. His protective shield around the President became known as the "Berlin Wall." He managed the President's time, personally cleared every one who wanted to see the President—even Cabinet offi rials—and controlled all communications to the Oval Office. ; Haldeman had served the 'President since they began an \ association in the 1956 cam-'; jpaign when Nixon sought re| election for vice president. Four years later, Haldeman 5took time off as vice president!
