Golesburg Register'Mqil, Golesbureit HI. Wednesday, Aug, 1, 1973 9 Haldeman-Weicker Exchange Points Up Divisions WASHINGTON (UPl) - For the first time in 10 weeks of WAtergate tarings, the turn* dreds Of people crammed into the marble hall fell silent all at once a§ the senator and the wittiest regarded one another in gomethirig less than mutual admiration. Across that breath-holding hush, the glare exchanged Tuesday by Sen. Lowell P. Weicker .Tr. and H. R, Halde* man bespoke what more than 5,000 pages of transcribed testimony has not quite captured — the deep divisions carved by the scandal and the clash of philosophies it has come to represent. Who Set Example? "Who set the example for what happened?" Weicker had demanded a few moments earlier. "I don't believe that anyone has to set an example..." replied Haldeman, who until last spring was regarded as the most powerful man in Washington next to Richard M. Nixon himself. "Because I still stand foursquare behind the statement that this was the most outstanding, most dedicated and most able group of people to who does a the country has far too broad a Former Nixon Aide //. ft.

"But Mr. Haldeman," Weicker protested. "I think that in light of the facts that are coming out that both you and I would agree that this went far beyond Just a few men breaking into the Watergate. But rather it's revealed...a situation both in the Committee to Re-Elect the President and within the White House whereupon everything that was touched was corroded." Cold Stare Haldeman regarded Weicker, a Connecticut Republican who months ago called for his resignation, icily. "No, sir, I will not in any way, shape or form accept that allegation or contention," he said. "There is no way that any man in this country can establish and make the case that everything in the House, or everything that the White House touched, was corroded. And I think that does a great disservice to this country to even state it..." "I would only say this," Weicker shot back. "That the real problem is that your Making of Prexy 1972 'Not a Trick' WASHINGTON (UP!) - To conclude from the Watergate disclosures that Americans were "tricked" into re-electing President Nixon would be "no less than a national tragedy," according to Theodore H. White. White, in the fourth of his presidential campaign chronicles, "The Making of the President—1972," says Nixon beat Sen. George McGovern last fall because he promised Americans what they wanted— "a curb on power." Writing of Watergate as "stupidity" and "the grossest abuse of power," White never theless rejects any suggestion that the Nixon campaign organization's activities stole the election from McGovern. He argues that while what was known of the Watergate last fall probably did cost Nixon three or four million votes and a probable 65-35 per cent record landslide, even complete disclosure before the election would not have cut Ms margin below 55 per cent of the vote cstst* "...It is doubtful that In 1972, given the moods, emotions and public issues of that year, George McGovern or any other Democrat could have been elected," White writes. White says it would be no less than national tragedy if men came to regard the election of 1972 as fraud; or attempted to reverse the verdict of the people at the polls on the technicalities of a burglary, in a spasm of mqrality approaching the hysterical." He says for some, Watergate "has, curiously, restored their faith in the American people," who "according to this theory of fraud, (had) simply been hoodwinkled, bamboozled, tricked into a giant mistake." The yell which seemed to issue from Tarzan's mouth came in reality from a studio recording made by combining* three yells.

The audience gasped and fell silent. Rage rose and then fell in Maldeman's pale blue eyes as he regarded Weicker across the massive committee table. He gritted his teeth, looked away and did not reply. Kept in Dark Conceding that Watergate has become "an enormous embarrassment" to the administration, the former White House chief of staff nonetheless insisted that both he and the President had been kept in the dark for some nine months after the June 17, 1972, arrests at the Democratic National Committee about who was behind the espionage raid and White i who was covering up the truth. And from listening to tape recordings of two crucial conversations between Nixon and John W. Dean HI, the only witness thus far to allege the President's own involvement in tjhie scandal, Haldeman said "any reasonable person" would similarly conclude as he did Nixon was innocent. Would he be willing to play those tapes before the committee—if the committee can obtain them? "I would welcome that opportunity, because they would confirm what 1 have told you," HaMeman said Chairman Sam J. Ervin, D- N.C., complaining that the White House was "leaking" the secret tapes through Haldeman to its own advantage, contended that there had been collusion. "There was an effort on the part of White House lawyers to join Mr, Haldeman in making the interpretation of these tapes public," Ervin said angrily. He described it as "counterfeit testimony" and again demanded tJhat the tapes be made public. Want To Hear Tapes Though Haldeman said it was "absolutely" untrue that he fiad collaborated with the White House to put Nixon's version-of the critical conversations into the committee record, alniost every committee member H demanded a chance to hear the recordings to find out what CHcy really say.
