(AP) -- President Nixon says . he believes there has been "ha- Irassment on a massive basis ot 'innocent people" by some members or the press and prosecutors in the Watergate case. ;·" And · in an interview made public on Tuesday, he said "the chance to get a fair trial anyplace is-impossible" f o r . any Watergate figure. He said that if the charges against him in connection with Watergate .were true. ."] wouldn't serve for one minute" and nobody .would have, to ask him fo resign. He termed Watergate "the thinnest scandal in American history." The President said thai if he "had bugged out of Vietnam," as some liberal members of the would have 'been a blip. They wouldn't have cared." The interview is included in a new paperback book. "The Personal Nixon: Staying on the Summit," written by Rabbi Ba- rucli M. Koroff of Providence, p r e s s wanted, "Watergateproviding duplicate copies of sections of the interview for distribution to reporters. Rabbi Korft's committee published the $1.25 papcroack and will print 300,000 copies in the next month, a key time in the Watergate impeachment pro- R.I., and Rehoboth. Mass. He is ceedings. The .committee gets head of an anti-impeachment organization known as the National Citizens' Committee for Fairness to the Presidency. Rabbi Koroff said the May 13 interview at the White House was arranged by Bruce Her the President. Herschensohn also provided a nattering commentary about the author for the hack cover. DUPLICATE COPIES Staffers in the press office of the Western White House were the royalties, the ra'bbi said. The tape-recorded interview contained a defense of the President's position, harsh crit icism of the news media anc some of the special Watergate prosecutor's men and a denia' schensohn, deputy assistant to of any anti-semitism in re sponse to reports of racial slurs In transcripts of some presiden tial conversations. In dent the interview, the Presi said that, if charges against him on Watergate anc the coverup were true, "no Stoned To Death The body of Pedro, a 27-year- old, ID-font long pel alligator, is loaded into a Iruck by Florida Wildlife officials after he was found stoned to death in his pool at a tourist stop in this central Florida fanming community.

"But, I know they are not rue, and therefore I will slay here, do the job that I was elected to do. and trust to the American constitutional process o make the final verdict." However, the President said he felt resignation or impeachment at this time "would have devastating consequences in erms of foreign/policy, would eopardize - the best hope we lave to build a structure of peace in the world." DON'T LIKE TONE Nixon said "the great major- ty of those who have analyzed .ranscripts say they don't find an impeachable offense, b u t they don't like their tone. "Well, I can say if they were 10 tape the conversations of Presidents that I have known they wouldn't like their tone either." Nixon said he believed some of Special Prosecutor Leon Ja- Worski's "eager-beaver staffers" ha dengaged in "an abusive process." He said "it will be found that there has been harassment on a massive basis of innocent people, that many witiiout guilt have had their reputations badly damaged · Many - who have been charged with guilt have been charged on flimsy indictments as was indicated in the Mitchell-Stans trial." He referred to forme Artty. . He referred to former Atty. mer Commerce Secretary Maurice H. Stans. who were acquitted of criminal conspiracy charges in connection with und-raising efforts for Nixon's .972 re-election campaign. "Much of the press, and particularly, I am sorry to say, much of the television ^press las rot been responsible," Nixon charged. When Nixon made similar charges in the past, he refuesd to elaborate. BADLY DAMAGED Nixon said in the interview that as a result of congressional hearings, inspired leaks and source stories, the reputations of innocent men have been badly damaged. "I would say it would be extremely difficult for anyone to get a fair trial, for example in the District of Columbia now," Nixon said. He made -his comments before the civil rights conspiracy conviction there last week of his former domestic affairs adviser, John D. Ehrlichman.
