Soft Contact Lenses Apparently Here To Stay .CHICAGO (AP) -- Soft contact lenses are not the answer to everybody's vision problems, but apparently they are stay. , The so-called soft contacts have gained wide popularity in the three years they have been available in the United States because of the ease with which they can-be worn. Dr. Barton L. Hodes, an ophthalmologist on the faculty at Northwestern University medical school, said that while he would fit his own children with soft contact lenses if they needed them today, "they're not the answer to everybody's problems." Dr. Whitney G. Sampson, a Houston, Tex., ophthalmologist who is president of the Contact Lens Association of Ophthalmologists, said at a recent sym- losium on contact lenses that soft --as well as hard--contact lenses are here to stay." But the decision as to which the patient needs should be the p.° : Special Showing Of Disney Movies Sei A special showing of "Old Yeller" and "The Incredible Journey" will be sponsored by the Summer Parks program ii cooperation with the Ozarl Theater.

He said there were some ear- problems with soft contacts ecause the same techniques led for fitting the hard ones ere used. . SAFE AND EFFECTIVE But he said the soft lenses ·e now "definitely safe, effec- ve and warranted iti a fair ercentage of situations" in the anagemenl of certain vision roblems. Contact lenses correct vision ie same way eyeglasses do. There are no accurate figures i the number of persons wear- ng contact lenses or eye- lasses.

A hard contact lens is a tiny, lin bowl-shaped shell of cor- eclive plastic which fits over ie cornea. Soft contacts are made of more pliable plastic containing 'ater and are larger than the ard lenses. They were devel- ped in Czechoslovakia about 15 ears ago and have been ap roved for use in the Unitec states only since March 1971.

Dean Relates Allege Disregard For Rulin NEW YORK (AP) -- Time magazine quotes John W. Dean HI as saying President Nixon was prepared in 1971 to defy the U.S. Supreme Court if it had rilled against a proposed nuclear test. But the high court ruled 8-1 in the government's favor in a suit brought by environmentalists who wanted' to halt an atomic bomb test on Amchitka Island in'the Aleutian chain off Alaska. The magazine quoted Dean, a former White House aide and counsel to Nixon, as saying in an interview that "the President was prepared to defy the Supreme Court if it ruled against the Amchitka blast in 1971. "He was going to say 'pull the trigger 1 and then explain that he had taken the action be cause it was vital to the mili I ^ V I 111 VI rAVm Of Earlier Taped Conversations Transcripts keve WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Nixon has likened himself o a "dumb turkey" for failing n 1972 to recognize the suggestions of a Watergate coverup in conversations with his aides. "It's not comfortable for me because I was sitting there like a dumb turkey," Nixon told White House Press Secretary lonald L. Ziegler as the two istened June 4, 1973, to tape recordings of Nixon's meetings the previous February and March with John W. Dean III. The House Judiciary Committee transcript of the June 4 session was contained in 1.069 jages of evidence made public y the committee Saturday. The latest volumes of evi- ence amassed by the committee also disclosed that While louse staff chief Alexander M. laig Jr. suggested as early as July 3. 1973. that Nixon wanted to fire Archibald Cox as the special Watergate prosecutor, according to former Atty. Gen. Slltot L. Richardson. The documents further revealed that Cox asked Nixon on June 27, 1973, for his version of he cover-up described by Dean h testimony before the Senate Watergate Committee. PRESIDENT MUSED As Nixon listened and, with Ziegler, searched for the damaging implications in the tapes of the Dean meetings, the Pres- "Well, you know I wondered, frankly, Ron, when I first saw, uh, heard about the story, t h a t Haldeman (unintelligible) people in the Watergate I mean, God, maybe we were talking about a cover-up Watergate. I really didn't. I didn't know what the hell -- I honest ly didn't know," Early in' the session, Nixoi fretted about the implications of his conversation March 21 1973, with Dean and H.R. Hal deman. "We do know we have no problem: it's that damn con pired about a cover-up (unin- elligible) or not. We did talk ibout it on the 21st. That's a ough conversation. Unless Halleman explains it -- which he vill. (Sighs) But I think we can survive that, too." KNEW NOTHING Nixon has insisted he knew nothing about the cover-up prior to March 21, 1973. But in listening to tapes of conversations with Dean on March 13 and March 17, the President worried that' perhaps ie had been told of what amounted lo a cover-up but failed to realize it. "1 should have reacted before Jie 21st of March, actually," Nixon lamented to Ziogler. "Dean shouldn't have had to come in to me with the 'cancer in the heart of the presidency,' which to his credit he did . . . Haldeman didn't tell me that: (John D.) Ehrlichman didn't tell me that." Moments later, Nixon calls Discussing the March 17 conversation in which Dean listec he Nixon aides who might be implicated in the Watergate, Nixon asked, "How would ym -- that strike you, how does it strike you? He was telling me that there was a cover-up.?' "Not at all," Ziegler replied. Telling his aide of the March 13 tapes, Nixon related: ' ' "Now .here's one (unintell gible) I ' don't know what th hell I was saying here. :but said 'You know, the thing her is that (Jeb) Magruder, Mag uder 'put, put the heat on, am (Hugh) Sloan starts o laldeman.' . . . I said 'We'v ;ot to cut that off. We can' have that go to Haldeman . . suppose he could say there tha I was telling him to coveru wouldn't you say, for Haldeman?" NO COVER-UP Speaking of the pro-March 21 conversations, Nixon pondered "There's no cover-up in this, ul ever ppos orme p am ouldr Turn the snalio eputy nittee ibmi une : T}! _ ' H1C [ouse )hone if a bat ( Jrnm n's Calif.

"Gen. Haig said t h a t he was lot sure the President was no' ;oing to move on this to dis Mr. Cox, and that i prosecutor to investigate "allegations involving the President." Cox issued the statement Haig and Nixon demanded. By Richardson's account, Haig called again July 23 "and old me that the 'boss' was ·ery 'uptight' about Cox and omplained about various of his ictivities ..." T h e affidavit continued, 'Gen. Haig told me that 'if we lave to have a confrontation ve will have it.' Gen. Haig said hat the President wanted 'a ight line drawn with no further mistakes,' and that 'if Cox does not agree, we will get rid of ^ox.' " In late September or early October 1973, Richardson continued. "I met with the President in regard to the Agnew matter. After we had finished our discussion about Mr. Agnew, and as we were walking toward the door, the President said in substance, 'Now that we have disposed of that matter, we can go ahead and get rid of could not be a matter of Cox's charter to investigate the Presi dent of the United Stales,' Richardson wrote. Cox's charter, published as a "ederal regulation a month be- r ore the Haig phone call, specif- Cox.' There was nothing mora said." Cox was fired and Richardson and his deputy, William D. Ruckelshaus, resigned Oct. 20, 1973 in what became known as "the Saturday night mas- versation of March 21 st . . . Nixon said. It was in that meeting that Dean spoke of a "cancer close to the presidency" and described E. Howard Hunt's demands for hush money, the possibility of clemency for the Watergate burglars and the chances of criminal charges against various White House aides. According to the transcript, Nixon told Ziegler: "What I was saying about this crap is that it's reassuring up to a point, but in fact, uh, at least, in this whole business, we, we sat there and we con- -- to this point, period -- not one talk of cover-up." ' ' T h a t ' s right," Ziegler agreed. "You know, not one bit," Nixon went on. "There's a little, there's a feeling of it through here At one point, Nixon blames John N. Mitchell, his former attorney general and campaign chief, for failing to shield him from the scandal. "The key to this thing, Ron, is Mitchell. Always been the key. You haven't had a cover- tary position of the United States vis-a-vis Russia," he was quoted. "Everyone was in readiness to act anyway if 'the ruling had gone the other way," Dean said in the magazine interview. up. Dean did it he didn't do it for Haldeman and Ehrlichman.
