Peter :ergate committee spotlight and flat, unemotional tones lated his belief that one of those who had conspired to cover up that involvement of Nixon campaign officials in the Watergate break-in was the President himself. But how to prove whether Dean's story was true of false? The President declined invitations from Ervin and Cox to tell his side of the story. Testimony from Nixon loyalists conflicted with Dean's.

Three days after the f i r i n g , Nixon agreed to t u r n over the subpoenaed tapes. But the impeachment process had begun. It was spurred on by the disclosure that two of the subpoenaed conversations did not exist and that a third was marred by an 18'/5-minute erasure that had wiped out the only discussion ol Watergate. A new special prosecutor, Leon Jaworski. took over. In March 1974, grand juries returned the major Watergate in experienced in helping students judge the effectiveness of their own communication tools," Mrs. Ingalls said. She stressed the importance of having a thorough background in voice and diction training before teaching a course on the subject. She noted, too. the demand that was pot on one's voice in learning and teaching before the time of elaborate aides such as the new laboratory. INSTITUTE EMPHASIS 7 "Emphasis in this summer's institute will be on communication and in every phase of forensic competition." Mri. Ingalls said. "Both teachers and students should improve speaking abilities, listening abilities and nonverbal communication. With the use of the new laboratory, .a student's progress is evident to him as well as to the instructor." Until a student hears how he sounds, he cannot make any progress. Hearing the consonant formation, the vowel placement, the pilch, the intonations and idiomatic expressions on tape recordings through inspection, comparison and correction, cer- Uinly strengthens the student's desire to improve," she said. The Voice and Diction Laboratory is located in Room 402 of the Communications Center. It is equipped with a large master control console, over which an instructor can monitor any student's work, and with 38 recording carrclls complete with headphones and a small control console. In the rear-of the room are five small recording rooms where students may work indepen dently. : The new laboratory was used for the first time this academic year and has run at full capacity throughout each semester. In the laboratory, Mrs. Ingalls can work simultaneously with students studying varied problems. For instance, a foreign student may be having problems mth phonics Or homonyms- another with vowels, a stage dialect, or nasality; or a third with proper breathing. Mrs Ingalls can speak to and teach each student individually over any one of five channels. Or: she can "tune in" a student,listen, and learn .if he or.she is studying properly. All of.this she can do without disturbing other students, who are seated as close as IB to 24 inches away.

In a dramatic bid to quiet their demands, Nixon released edited transcripts of 44 presidential conversations, giving them not only to Jaworski and Rodino but to the general public. However. the transcripts gave a picture of a Presidonl who had sought to "keep the lid on the bottle," to contain the Watergate investigations.
