LAST CONSPIRATOR FREED
Mitchell to be released Friday

John Wayne shows
'remarkable' recovery

WASHINGTON (AP)-John Mitchell
is the last; he closes the book. With his
release next Friday, the prisons no
longer will house any men of
Watergate.-
Legally, the debt is paid.
Twenty-five men went to prison.
Eleven worked directly for Richard
Nixon in his ill-starred presidency; the
others were caught in the Watergate
coze of shady campaign finance or dirty
politics.
THE CO-CHAIRMAN of the
Watergate burglary team spent the
most time in prison. The men at
Richard Nixon's right hand, convicted
of scheming to hide the affair, were
next. Then came the bungling burglars.
At the bottom, quck-in, quick-out, were
those who squealed, those who lied, and
those who bent the finance laws.
Of them all, John Mitchell personified
Watergate more than anlyone except
Nixon himself. He was a Watergate
principal at both ends of the book and in
the middle. The plot was hatched in his
office; he was in on the cover-up, his

colleagues tried to make him the patsy;
he was the last into prison and he'll be
the last out.
Throughout it all, to this day, he
remains Nixon's friend.
At the time, Nixon said he felt the
same way. "I believed that I owed my
election as president in 1968 largely to
his strength as a counselor and his skill
as a manager," Nixon wrote in his
memoirs. H.R. Haldeman suggested
that the only way to put an end to
Watergate was to blame Mitchell.
Nixon writes that he replied: "I won't
do that to him. To hell with it."
BUT THE White House tapes show
that when the Watergate crunch came,
Nixon was ready to sacrifice his old
friend and law partner, prophesying
badly that John Mitchell-whom John
Ehrlichman called "The Big En-
chilada"-would never go to jail.
At the cover-up trial, co-defendants
Haldeman andEhrlichman-Nixon's
No. 1 and No. 2 aides-turned against
Nixon. Mitchell admonished his lawyer
to say not one word against his former

boss.
At the Senate Watergate hearings,
Mitchell told of his dismay at learning
about "White House horrors." He never
quit denying that he gave the go-ahead
for a quarter million dollars worth of
political espionage that included
bugging Democratic Party headquar-
ters in Watergate.
G. GORDON LIDDY, the stoically
macho former FBI man and prosecutor
who presented the burglary plans to
Mitchell and then hired agents to carry,
them out spent 52% months in prison,
more than any other Watergate figure.
But his jail time was as much for his
stubborn silence as for the burglary. He
could have served 18 months less had he
testified to the grand jury. He probably
would have won a reduciton in senten-
ce-as at least nine others did-had he1
expressed contrition to U.S. District
Judge John Sirica.
Liddy's top aide, CIA veteran E.
Howard Hunt, served 32 months. Mit-
chell's time, officially, is 19 months.
although he was out on medical
furlough for five. Haldeman and
Ehrlichman each served 18 months.
THE FOUR burglars Hunt recruited
in Miami, insisting doggedly that they,
thought they were on a patriotic
mission for the White House, were in
prison slightly morethan one year.
The first Watergate figure to plead1
guilty and to this day the most obscure,
was a young man named George
Hearing who helped Donald Segretti
with his dirty tricks. Hearing served 280
days, Segretti only 133.
Former Nixon appointments
secretary Dwight Chapin fought in vain
to the Supreme Court to wipe out his
conviction for lying to a grand jury. He
spent 235 days in jail.
Jeb Stuart Magruder,-~who presented
Liddy and his plan to Mitchell, was one
of the first to tell prosecutors the
Watergate story. His jail time: 218
days.
Charles Colson, whose reputation for
political hardball was such that Nixon,
immediately suspected he was respon-
sible for Watergate, was jailed 27 days
and has since spent all his energies on a;
Christian prison ministry.

LOS ANGELES (AP)-Hollywood
box-office king John Wayne, showing
"remarkable" resiliency after removal
of his cancerous stomach, could be
released from the hospital after as little
as two weeks, a spokesman said
yesterday.
Wayne, 71, a veteran of five decades
of filmmaking, reportedly spent a rest-
ful night Friday and was in "very
stable" condition following his third
major operation in 15 years.
HE IS SURVIVING with a substitute
stomach fashioned from his intestines
"that should work in a remarkable,
normal way," UCLA Medical Center
Administrator Bernard Strohm told
reporters.
"For what he's gone through, he's in
remarkably good shape and good
spirits," Strohm said. "He wants to do
things."
The tall, lumbering actor, who won
an Oscar in 1969 for his performance in
"True Grit," underwent surgery
Friday for a gall bladder ailment, but
surgeons removed his stomach in a
nine-hour operation when a malignant
tumor was discovered.
Wayne spoke with his three sons and
four daughters after emering from
surgery Friday, and again yesterday
morning, Strohm said. A family mem-
ber said Wayne's children were "very
encouraged" by their father's reaction
to the unexpectedly grueling operation.
"HE'S REMARKABLE. He was
alert so early," said Strohm. "He's
weak, of course."
Strohm said Wayne would remain
under intensive care for at least four
days and would be hospitalized for a
minimum of two weeks. The actor is
"awake and alert," he said.
Strohm said Wayne's new stomach
should not affect his life expectancy. He
said Wayne's cancer had been confined
to the stomach and that his doctors
'are very optimistic' about the success
of the surgery.
"I'm sure Mr. Wayne feels very for-
tunate," Strohm said. "I'm sure Mr.
Wayne must have had some concern."
The operation was Wayne's second
major surgery within a year and his
second bout with cancer. The actor's
left lung was removed in 1964 and he

1 v

Wayne
underwent heart surgery last April,
when doctors removed his mitral valve
and replaced it with a heart valve from
a pig.
Strohm said Wayne was taking
liquids and that doctors would
gradually increase the consistency of
his food as his new stomach, actually a
pouch created from the intestines,
became stronger.
As Wayne, veteran of almost 200
films, rested in a $345-a-day suite
overlooking Westwood, hundreds of
calls and telegrams continued to pour
into the hospital switchboard. Among
those calling were Ronald Reagan and
Elizabeth Taylor.
