"He •Mtofci I was rattled. I had had enough rapport by then that I was comfortable in dealing with him. "I -wandered as I went In whether I was being set up by the President." Dean said he told Nixon then that he had contacted the prosecutors. $ told him I didn't believe this was an act of disloyalty," Dean said, "1 said in the end t thought it would be ' Msldered an act of loyalty.

Baker Jr., R-Tenn., vice chairman of the committee, .appealed to President Nixon to give a sworn account of his meetings with Dean, saying the Constitution prevents the committee from compelling the j President to testify. On Thursday, after «btljer signals from the committee that it to hear from the President, the House said Nixon will not appear he hearings.

' 'ks on the legal questions of subpoe- ig the President. * ^Former Attorney General John N. JSlitchell, scheduled to be the next wit- after the recess, has no information implicating Nixon in the coveMJp, his attorney said. Sen. Edward J. Gurney, R-Fla., brought out that Dean testified three times the meeting with Kalmbach last June 20 was in Kalmbach's Mayflower Hotel room. Gurney then produced a let* ter from the hotel saying the president's former personal lawyer wasn't registered that day, The senator produced a record from the Statler-Hilton, however, that showed Kalmbach registered there June 29-90. Dean suggested Kalmbach may have been registered under a different name at the Mayflower, "Mr. Kalmbach often discussed mat* ters in a code name," he said, Said Gumey: "Why in the world would he register under his own name at a nearby hotel, the Washington Milton, and then engage another room over in the Mayflower to meet with you? It just does not add tip." In saying that, Gurney, too, had his hotels mixed up. The Statler-Hilton is near the White House. The Washington Hilton is more than a mile away< Dean backed off. ,.'•'. / • "I have testified the-Mayflower and I am never sure which is the Mayflower and which is the Statler-Hilton. The hotel I recall is the one that is on 16th' Street up from the White House." Question: How long have you lived in Washington? Answer: I have been here about 10 years. : Q. And you don't know the difference between the Washington Hilton and the Mayflower Hotel? V A. I continually get them confused, I must confess. •"-' Dean insisted that the meeting did occur and went into detail, of how they met in the hotel's coffee shop and, finding it too noisy, going up to Kalmbach's room. Gurney had moved to another subject when Dean's lawyer whispered into the witness' ear. "I might go back over one point," Dean said as the room erupted in laughter. "The name of the coffee shop at the Statler-Hilton is the Mayflower." During the luncheon recess, committee counsel Samuel Dash said he doesn't regard Dean's confusion as material. "I think Mr. Kalmbach will corroborate that there was Indeed a meeting," he said. The morning session was marked by humor as Ervin and Baker swapped stories, and by § legal argument involving Gurney, Dean's lawyer, Ervin and the committee counsel, Gurney brought up that Dean had said he decided in late March or early April he had enough of the cover-up and wanted to tell the truth, Q. Now you went before the grand jury last week, is that correct? A, That is correct. Q. Did you tell therit the Whole story? A. I decided to exercise my constitutional rights at that point in time, Q, Whatido you mean by that? A, I invoked the Fifth Amendment. Q. You did not tell them anything, did you? ,Ai No, sir, t did not, '..'•; : ,\ Dean's lawyer, Charles Shaffer, tried to interrupt and Gurney said a witness' counsel may only defend constitutional rights of his client. Shaffer said that is what he was doing, that it was not proper legal procedure to bring up that a witness had , previously invoked the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. '. Ervin said "about all of the testimony that has been presented here before this committee ... would never be admissi- •ble-in a court of law" and settled the . matter by saying such past invocation could not be used to impeach a witness's testimony before the Senate committee. "You are testifying here under immunity, are you not?" Gurney asked Dean. "I have" been compelled to appear here to testify," Dean replied. "The committee has made a decision I understand by. a unanimous vote to grant me immunity. I don't come before this com. mittee without substantial consequences on my future legal rights, even though I am under, .immunity." Dean is protected against prosecution for anything he tells the senators, but that does not prevent legal actions against him for evidence gathered independently. The government moved to protect its ability to prosecute by presenting evidence to federal court to be sealed in advance of his testimony. United Press International WASHINGTON -President Nixon's chief ex-adviser, H. R. Haldeman, acknowledged in January that he knew of meetings the year before in the office of Attorney General John N. Mitchell at which plans were discussed that led to the Watergate bugging, it was alleged Friday. Charles W. Colson, a former special counsel to Nixon, said in a sworn statement he was so "shocked and startled" to learn shortly after the first of the year that Mitchell and former White House counsel John W. Dean III had been at such meetings that he went to Haldeman to tell him. "Mr. Haldemn said to me that he knew about Mr. Dean's attendance at those meetings > . .," Colsbn said. "Mr. Haldeman said that Mr. Dean had already told him about it, that he was aware of it." Colson's statement — contained in a sworn pre-trial deposition in a Watergate-related civil suit — contrasted sharply with a similar deposition given by Haldeman a month ago. In it, Haldeman said he had "no recollection" of getting such a report from Dean, although he was perhaps "will* ing to accept that as a possibility." The Colson deposition, taken May 28 and released Friday, appeared to corroborate Dean's testimony before the Senate Watergate Committee this week in which he said he told Haldeman in early March 1972 of attending the meetings and that he tried to cut off the discussions of political espoionage. "Mr. Haldeman said to me . . .that when Mr. Dean heard the proposals he turned them off," Colson said in the deposition. "Mr. Haldeman said that he had been advised of that by Dean, but that Dean had acted in a very proper capacity in that he turned off those discussions when he heard them." ' As Colson's deposition was made public, he appeared on Capitol Hill for closed-door questioning by a House armed services subcommittee about attempts to involve the Central Intelligence Agency in the Watergate affair. E. Howard Hunt Jr., a Colson protege who pleaded guilty to the Watergate plot in January, told the subcommitteee Thursday Colson had DON'f TALK TO STRANGERS!

"smoothed the way", for his contacts with the CIA in connection ,wlth White House tin- derc6ver Work. In his deposition, Colson said first he did not know who arranged for Hunt to have contact with the CIA and other agencies. Later he said he had "heard at the time" that it was John p. Ehrlichman, another top Nixon adviser, who made the arrangements. In a similar deposition last month, Ehrlichman said the President had .'put him in /.charge Of the .White Watergate investigation im late March this year after he became convinced, that Dean was "up to his eyebrdWs" the plot.

Colson out of his office, informed Sojorces said. \pThe meeting was requested by Colson to rebut charges nrade by Weicker at the Senate Watergate hearings. It reportedly lasted 12 minutes ended with Weicker out' raged about a Colson memo. \ The sources said Colson de\ nied compiling a White House •t "enemies" list of 20 persons ) believed opponents of Presi- ident Nixon. ,\ But Colson reportedly ad- Vnitted he sent a June 12, |972, memo to fired White House counsel John W. Dean •itating there were income tax ^smscrepancies involving Har- old J. Gibbons, a Teamsters Union vice president who was described as "an all-out enemy, a McGovernite, ardently anti-Nixon." At that point, the sources said, Weicker exploded and expressed disgust with Colson's activities and told Colson to leave. The memo that triggered Weicker's response was made public earlier this week by Dean. It says, "Please see if this one can be started on at once and if there is an informer fee, let me know. There is a good cause at which it can be donated;" The White House was accused by Weicker at the hearings Thursday of trying to smear him to impede the Watergate probe. He said he asked special Watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox to determine if laws against ob- s t r u c t i n g a congressional committee had been violated. Weicker said he was told by a reporter that Colson tried to plant a story that Weicker improperly handled campaign contributions in 1970.
