'· Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Friday, Oct. 18, 1974 FAYITTEVILLE, ARKANSAS Not Laden With Footnotes Book On Nixon White House Is True To Spirit By JAY SHARBUTT NEW YORK (AF) -- "The Palace Guard." a tart, lively book about the Nixon W h i t e House, isn't exactly the kind of scholarly work a history professor might write. Personal opinions abound, fine-print footnotes don't. The tone is in the classic feisty manner of the Texas Observer. ' But the Texan who co-authored it insists it wasn't written in'that spirit. "I like to think it's written in its own spirit," laughed Dan Rather, the hard-nosed CBS correspondent the network transferred from the White House beat to "CBS Reports" after Nixon resigned as presl [ent in August. 'It's as close to the truth as ve .could make it without cut- ing the truth, that is, watering t down . . . what we attempted o say was, 'Here it is as best I could make it out.'" Rather's collaborator was Gary Paul Gales, a CBS news- vriter. Since CBS bars leaves of absence, Rather said, Gates quit CBS to work full lime on he project for six months, then was rehired by the network. Some of the book's pbserva- .ions are funny, such as its portrait of economic advisor Ar- bested in a face-to-face dispute with strong-willed John Con nally, later became a big booster of Connally for the vice presidency in 1972: "In Ihe classic bully pattern. Haldeman was the first to knuckle under when faced with a true show of strength." Might not such remarks many of them aimed at Haldeman,. cause some readers to sayi'.'alv-hahr-'Bather really was out-to get those folks? ·"Well,' they'll just have to jump up and down," he replied "For example, what is painted in the book is not only the Hal- Railroad Retirement Biil Enacted Over Veto WASHINGTON (API -- A bill authorizing the government to put $7.1 billion into the financially troubled railroad retirement system has been enacted into law by Congress over Pres ident Ford's veto. The Senate voted 72-1 Wednesday to approve the bill ·marking the first time Con gress rejected a veto fron Ford. The House voted 350-1! Tuesday to override. Both votes were far more than the necessary two-thirds. The new law will restructure the railroad retirement system and pump $285 million in federal money into it annually for the next 25 years. Ford criticized the bill as too expensive and said . Congress should come up with a plan that puts less of a burden on taxpayers. However, Congress decided that a vote to sustain the veto would be politically dangerous since the alternative to a federal subsidy would be a substantial reduction in pensions now being received. _ There are about 1 million retired rail workers and survivors now receiving pension checks. The 600,000 workers currently on railroad payrolls also are covered by the system. cisely parted down the middle, as though to indulge the sligh- :est deviation might make him look raffish."
