Northwmt Arkontat TIMES, Friday, May 10, 1974 FAYCTTIVILLI. ARKANSAS DENNIS THE MENACE By Ketcham Senate Committee Advises Permanent Special Proecutor By LAWRENCE [,. KNUTSON I WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Senate Watergate committee staff has urged creation of a permanent special prosecutor and t h e passage of strict laws to prevent any President from creating a secret police. Prepared mainly by chief counsel Samuel D.ish, the 170- page draft report details the committee's findings in its probe of the Watergate break-in and cover-up and makes several legislative recommendations. These focus on the creation of a permanent public attorney who would act not only as an ombudsman but would be able to probe allegations of high-level corruption and conflict of interest. A copy of the draft report sent to a!l seven members of the Watergate committee, was made available by a source close to the committee. "In each of the two major scandals in this country in the past half century, Teapot Dome and Watergate, the appointment of a special prosecutor was essential lo preserve the integrity of the criminal justice system and the public confidence in the rule of law." the report said. In contending a permanent prosecutor should be appointed, the report added: ."Both limes the harm had already been done and the investigations and prosecutions created deep wounds in the public and pri rate life of the American com. munity." "The potential for new abuses of power and failure of law enforcement are now known to be too dangerous to our free society to not take precautionary steps while the wound of the Watergate scan d n l is still fresh." the reporl said. The d r a f t report recommend ed that the chief justice of the ' United States mime three ' tired circuit court judges to ap point the attorney. He would lie · subject to Senate confirmation and insulated from any ir fluence by the executiv branch. The draft also recommentlct that Congress make it illega for any federal official in the -. President's executive office ti , engage in any form of domestii r or national security intelligenci · gathering.
