Sen. asked "Do you care to sell us \ whb'this individual is?" li might affect his tax case," said Dcfett. In please don't tell us," Inouye sati. lean was asked about the April 15 meeting he said he had with the President - thg, last meeting before he was fired two weeks later. "I was a little'rattled by the fact I had not told the President I went to the federal, prosecutors," Dean said. "He realized I was rattled. I had had enough .MBgort by then that I was comfortable tfrolaiing with him. "I wonder as I went in whether I was being set up by the President." Dean said he told Nixon theft that he had contacted the prosecutors. "I told him 1, didn't believe this was an act of disloyalty," Dean said. "I saiduih the end I thought it would be, considered an act of loyalty; I told him 1 tfipught the matter had to end. I told him'that in my discussion with the prosecutors that I had discussed my own involvement and the involvement of others." , As the questioning of Dean closed, minority;-counsel Fred Thompson quizzed Dean .once again on the money he bor-' for. his honeymoon from $15j200' listed to him by other White House ' !an said that in April he tore up the mal check he had placed with the the previous October When he first loved $4,850. Thompson expressed incredulity that Dean would dispose • of the evidence which could show his intentions of repaying the money. ' Dean said he wished he had the check, but said, "If I were not being perfectly candid with this committee, it wouldn't be very difficult to create another crjtck." •flit's your intent and what was in your ' :; 1 that puzzles me, Mr. Dean," said ipson. ; at no time thought there' was any fay I wouldn't have to account for that sy," said Dean. "Too many people about it."' - |i)eah was caught in the first discrep- ancy of his testimony on a question of which Washington hotel it was where he met Herbert W, Kalmbaeh to discuss Watergate hush money, As the committee readied for a 10-day Independence Day, recess, there were these other developments: -Sen. Howard H. 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 President to testify. On Thursday, after Ot'her signals from the committee that it wants to hear from the President, the White House said Nixon will not appear at the hearings. —A Spokesman for special prosecutor Archibald Cox said no action is in the works on the legal questions of subpoenaing the President, —Former Attorney General John N. Mitchell, scheduled to be the next witness after the recess, has no Information implicating .Nixon in the cOVelr-Up, his attorney, said. , ; ' Seii. fid Ward J. Gurney, R-Fla., brought out that Dean testified three times the meeting with Kalmbaeh last June 29 was in jKalmbach's, May flower Hotel room. Gurney then 'produced a letter 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 Kalmbaeh registered there June 29-30. r Dean suggested Kalmbaeh may have been registered under a different name at the Mayflower. , "Mr. Kalmbaeh often discussed matters in a cade name,"'he said. Said Gurney.: ' 'Why in the world would he register under his own name at a nearby-liotel; the Washington Hilton, and then engage another room over i nthe MayfloWer to meet with you? It just does not add up:" 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 recal is the one that- is on 16th Street up from the White House." Question! HoW Iting have you lived In , Washington? Answer: I have been here about lo years. Q. And you don't know the difference between the Washington Hilton and the Mayflower Hfttel? , A. 1 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 jrdom. , Gurney had moved to another subject when Dean's lawyer whispered into the Witness's 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-Hilt6n is the Mayflower." During the luncheon recess, ;committee counsel Samuel Dash said he doesn't regard ,Deanjs confusion as material. "I think Mr, Kalrnbach , Will corroborate that there was; indeed Ji meeting,"; he said. / ' Dean said that after he was ftfed as Nixon's official lawyer on April. 30, his secretary " informed him that "they're v, putting bands "around safes and your Material," . . \ The morning session was marked by humor as Ervin and Baker swapped stories, and by a 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;them the Whole story? A. I decided to exercise my constitutional rights at that point in time. Q. What do you mean by that? , A. I invoked the Fifth Amendment. Q. You did not tell them anything, did you? . t A. No, sir, I did not. . Dean's lawyer', Charles Shaffer, tried to interrupt and Gurney said a witness's counsel may only defend constitutional rights of his client. 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. Colsbn, 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 nhat he went to Haldeman to tell him. "Mr. Haldemn said to me that he knew about Mr. Dean's attendance at those meetings . . .," Colsori 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-relat-i ed 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 "willing 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 Counter 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 I^Bfifir DON'T TALK TO STRANGERS!

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 D.

Weicker, ., Friday ordered former White House counsel Charles W. Colson out of his Senate office, informed sources said. The meeting was requested by Colson to refute charges made by Weicker at the Senate Watergate hearings. It reportedly lasted 12 minutes and ended with Weicker outraged about a Colson memo. f**The sources said Colson denied compiling a White House "enemies? list of 20 persons believed opponents of President Nixon. t put Colson reportedly admitted he sent .a June 12, 1972, memo to fired White House counsel John W. Dean stating there were income tax discrepancies' 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. SINGLE ADULTS Th. Pho.ni. Singlt Adult Bibl.
