11 Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Sat., July 20 T974 rAYETTlVlLLt, ABKAMSAS ' ' Said Furious Over Antitrust Pursuit Transcript Reveals Nixon Halted Action On ITT ;' WASHINGTON (AP) - President Nixon temporarily halted an anti-trust action against ITT in 1971 by telling then Deputy A t ' t y . Gen. . Richard G. _ Kleindienst to "stay the hell out of it," according to a presidential transript made public by 'r the House Judicary Committee. ·^ Asst. Atty. Gen. Richard L. .. McLaren made Nixon so furious for his aggressive antitrust policies that the President told Kleindicnst on April 19, 1: ; ' · ; ... I want something clearly understood, and if it is not understood, McLaren's -- is to be out within ah hour. "The ITT thing -- slay the hell out of it. Is that clear?" "I don't know whether ITT is bad, good or indifferent," the President w e n t on. "There is not going to be any more antitrust actions as long as I am in this chair."

(AP Wirephoto Map) Kleindienst pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge for refusing to testify fully about the same conversation before a Senate committee considering his nomination to be attorney general. The transcript is included in two volumes of evidence prepared by the committee staff in its impeachment inquiry and released on Friday. Nixon's side of the. ITT controversy is in a third volume. SUPPORTS PRESIDENT Evidence gathered by the Judiciary staff generally supports the President's contention hat he knew nothing of the ITT iledge to help support the 1972 R e p u b l i c a n National Con vention. The President is shown to have consistently . argued against filing anti - trust suits against conglomerates just because of their size. The April 19 transcript covers a meeting between Nixon, former presidential aide John D. Ehrlichman and then-Director of the Office of Management and Budget George P. Shultz, and a telephone call between Nixon and Kleindienst. In the call, the President told Kleindienst he hoped McLaren would resign -- "I'd rather have him out anyway. I don't like the ." Hanging up, Nixon turned to Ehrlichman and Shultz and said McLaren is "not going to be a judge either. He is out of the ------ government." At issue was an April 20, 1971, deadline for the Justice Department to file a Supreme Court appeal against a lower court decision permitting ITT to acquire the Grinnel Corp. Other pending suits filed by McLaren sought to prevent ITT's acquisitions of Canteen Corp. and the Hartford Fire Insurance Co. SETTLED OUT OF COURT On July 31, the case was settled out of court, but not before Nixon's decision was reversed and the appeal was filed after a delay in the Supreme Court. McLaren, despite Nixon's declaration, stayed in the Jus- A Series of 18.QuestibWtmd Answers Designed To Explain The TIMES Want Ads So They May Serve You To Better Advantage On Devils Fr. Peter j.

And they say the discovery probably means the Aztecs, somewhere around 1,000 A.D., developed a 1,000-mile trade route from Mexico City to northwest New Mexico. The nuclear sleuthing was outlined here, on Thursday by Dr. Carman Harbotlle at the Fifth International Congress of Radiation Research. ; Harbottle, a nuclear chemist from the Brookhaven National Laboratory, explained that his detection technique consists of placing turquoise samples in a nuclear reactor and irradiating them. The patterns of radi- activity provide a fingerprint which can be compared with other samples to determine whether they are the same material. He says samples of the turquoise used by the Aztecs exactly match samples he took from Chaco Canyon. And he said that "may help explain a puzzling cultural explosion" that took place about 1,000 A.D. among the Indians in the Four Corners area of the United States--where New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Utah adjoin. "The Indians of the Southwest were still hunters and gatherers until 'about 1.000 A.D.," he said. "Suddenly they 1971, when he became a U.S. District judge in Chicago. The out-of-court settlement became a political issue in March and April 1972 after an ITT memo was published linking the court case to a pledge of a political donation by the corporation. ITT says it pledged $200,000, but a White House memo says it was $400,000. In addition to the April 19 transcript, the committee made public for the first time another conversation on April 21, 1971, between Nixon and former Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell. Mitchell successfully persuaded Nixon that he should allow McLaren's appeal to go to the Supreme Court, but only for political reasons. He said Solicitor General Erwin Griswold would resign and predicted a Senate investigation of the handling of the case. "I don't know who's been giving you the information, but it's a bad political mistake (to ease off on ITT)," Mitchell told Nix' MITCHELL TESTIFIED Meeting On Buffalo Park Held Friday HARRISON. Ark.: AP) A meeting on plans by the National Park Service to turn 97,000 acres along the banks of the Buffalo National River in north Arkansas into a national park attracted about 100 persons Friday. The meeting was the second in two days. It was designed to test the feeling of people about the plan. Those attending the meeting here were about evenly divided on the question, with conservationists approving the park service plan and landwoners opposing it. The National Park Service owns about 28,000 acres of the and now and the Buffalo River Conservation. and Recreation Council owns about 47,000 acres. The council has about 200 mem- lers. . Lucille Hannon, a member of the council and mayor of Pruitt, questioned whether conservation Was a cause for condemnation of land along the river. She said she had been fighting th park service plans since 1968. Earl Henry, a dairy farmer From near Hasty in Newton County, said the loss of his farm to the park service would mean the loss of 300 gallons of milk a day. He said he said the plan would deprive him-of liis rights, and said that ,lhe government already owns 42 per cent of the land in the United States. Dr. Neill Compton of Bentonville told landowners that "you're being given a very generous offer by an agency that does not try to move you off your land." He said that 550,000 acres of land have been covered with water -- mostly by the U.S. Corps of Engineers -- Want Ad' There are at least three different ways, one of which will surely be convenient fbr you.

"Archeologists working at the site now suspect that the cultural explosion was caused by a sudden contact with the enormously advnnccd culture of the Aztecs in Mexico." chell said he played no part In the ITT settlement and stayed out of the discussions on locating the Republican convention in San Diego. He also denied any knowledge of the ITT political pledge.' The committee's evidence, lowever, includes a June 30, .971, memo from then-White rlouse Communications Director Herbert G. Klein to H.R. Haldeman, then White House chief of staff. The memo noted a "$400,000 in private money arranged through a new major ITT hotel" as part of San Diego's attempt to get the convention. A copy of the memo went to Mitchell. In another memo, a White House aide asks Jeb Stuart Army no private agency could stop the Corps of Engineers but the park service plan would protect the land in the area. Rumburg told the audience at the conclusion of the meeting that the park service would consider the statements made here Friday and at Little Rock Thursday in preparing the final mental impact statement.

ASKS QUICK ACTION In a third memo on July 28, 1971, Magruder notes a number of important decisions to be made about the status of the convention and asks Mitchell for quick action. The ITT case became a pubic controversy with publication of a memo about the ITT pledge written by the com- lany's Washington lobbyist, Dita Beard. When she flew to Denver and was hospitalized, ,Vhile House consultant E. Howard Hunt Jr. traveled there disguised and under another name for a bedside interview in March 1972. In a White House memo with- n the committee evidence, Hunt described the meeting saying, "I told her the most useful action would bo to have ier return to Washington as soon as possible, making a Drief statement, denying au- .horship of the memorandum -if she were able to in good faith -- and then collapse." Mrs. Beard stayed in Denver and collapsed in apparent pain as two members of the Senate Judiciary Committee attempted to question her about the memo. Hunt also wrote that he told Mrs. Beard "if she would tell 'he truth that she and her fami- " would be well taken care of 'or life." · . Mrs. Beard declined to return 'o Washington. Hunt was later ·invicted for ^his part In the original Watergate break-in.
