grounds of executive privilege.
JUDGE John Sirica has said
he will rule today on whether
Nixon should appear. The prose-
cution yesterday asked Sirica
to send a panel of doctors to
San Clemente, Calif. to examine
Nixon and to determine whether
he is fit to appear. The former
president is recuperating from
treatment for phlebitis.
Dean was led through his
testimony for nearly four hours
today by Tennessee lawyer
James Neal, the assistant spe-
cial Watergate prosecutor who
spearheaded the government's
successful jury-tampering case
against Teamsters Union boss
Jimmy Hoffa in the early 1960s.
Defense lawyers will get a
chance to dispute Dean's ver-
sion of events later in the three-
to-four month trial.
DEAN BEGAN his appear-

by lawyers for Haldeman and

Probably not. All things considered you do
what you do pretty doggone well. After all, no one
has taken your job. And you're eating regularly.
But have you ever considered what doing your
job just a little better might mean?
Money. Cold hard coin of the realm.
If each of us cared just a smidge more about
what we do for a living, we could actually turn that
inflationary spiral around. Better products, better
service and better management would mean savings
for all of us. Savings of much of the cash and frayed
nerves it's costing us now for repairs and inefficiency.
Point two..By taking more pride in our work
we'll more than likely see America regaining its
strength in the competitive world trade arena. When
the balance of payments swings our way again we'll
all be better off economically.
So you see-the only person who can really
