(AP Wirephoto) Ehrlichman Says Nixon Preferred To Be Aloof Â· Â· SEATTLE, Wash. (AP) -- As President, Richard M. Nixon Â·purposely remained aloof from dozens of middle an lower level White House staffers and only rarely socialized with his top aides, says John D. Ehrlichman. Only two or three times in the four and one-third years that Ehrlichman was a top aide to Nixon did the Nixons and the Â·Ehrlichmans get together socially, Ehrlichman says . : Ehrlichman added in an interview Sunday that Nixon's relationship with his then-chief of staff H.R. Haldeman was about the same: Numerous contacts during the working day but only rare private social get- togethers . "That was not because of a character flaw necessarily, but because of his sense of what the relationship ought to be between the President and his staff," he said. Ehrlichman also said Nixon, who Friday became the first president In U.S. history to resign, purposely had little contact with middle and lower level White House, staffers. "We talked about the desirability of his Just going out and going in and out of offices and saying hello to secretaries and dropping In on staff members," but Nixon rejected. the idea, Ehrlichman said. "I thought the decision was a mistake." Ehrlichman said if Nixon had spent time .talking with those employes "I think it would have enhanced staff performance." Ehrlichman resigned his White House post as chief domestic affairs adviser to Nixon on April 30, 1973. amidst the then burgeoning Watergate scandal. He said on Sunday that Nixor Vsurely must be very unhappy' pow. "He's had a very personal defeat In Washington in a po litical sense and he's an Individ ual who' doesn't like to lose "It's been my experience tha losing does not put him out o business, so to speak, doesn' down him for long. But certain ly I'm sure he is what you would call a bad loser." Ehrlichman said he thinks Nixon, now at home at his San Clemente, Calif., estate, wil make a personal comeback and perhaps do some writing and eventually become a senior statesman of some sort. He said he did not think Con- gress should continue with ii peachment . proceedings n should court action be broug against the former president. SAN CLEMENTE, Calif.
