From Dolry Cooperative Witness Swears Connally Received $15,HW LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) Early in the bribery investigation of John B, Connatly, Watergate prosecutors received an affidavit from a mystery witness who said the former $15,000 from a dairy cooperative for trying to get a government anti-trust suit dismissed, according to a memorandum filed in court. Connally has repeatedly denied that he took money from the cooperative, Associated Milk Producers Inc. Now Connally has hired the noted criminal lawyer Edward Bennett Williams to represent him in the case, one of Connally's law partners said. The court memorandum quotes a lawyer, William N. Carter, as saying that about Midnight Oil WASHINGTON (AP) - Gerald L. Warren, While House deputy press secretary, urged that the 1,308-page volume ol edited Watergate tapes be read in its entirety rather than bits and pieces. "Have you read it?" a re porter asked at a news brief ing "No, I haven't.' 1 Warren con fessed. "But I plan to." ast Nov. 2 assistant special irosecutor Jon A. Sale read to im from an affidavit without dentifying the person who made it and without indicating vhether the accusation was based on direct knowledge or on hearsay.

Carter said Sale "waved the affidavit around" so that he could not read the signature on it "It was a short name, that's all I could tell," said Carter. Carter represents the former general manager of the cooperative, Harold S. Nelson. He said that Nelson denies knowledge of the alleged Connally payment. Carter's story about the mys t e r i o u s affidavit surfaced among more than 1,000 page: of notes and papers collectec by former American Bar Asso cialion President Edward L Wright in an independent inves ligation of the cooperative's po litical dealings. In one memo, dated last Nov 4. Wright quoted one of the cop's lawyers as telling him that Connally's law firm in Houston nad said that it was "unfortu- late that John Connally had re :eived a payment/' but that "it was susceptible of explana- .ion." But the Connally partner, Marvin Collie, denied in a telephone interview that he had said Connally "received a payment." He said he was certain that Connally did not take any money.
