THE INCIDENT marked the
first time Dean had been sum-
moned before Nixon to make
a progress report on the cover-
up. It occurred Sept. 15, 1972,
the same day the original seven
defendants were indicted by a
grand jury. Also at the meeting
was former White House chief-
of-staff Haldeman.
During the conversatin, Nix-
on discussed using the FBI and
other federal agencies for poli-
tical revenge during his secnd
term, a move Dean called "an
exciting prospect."
The contents of the 32-miiute
tape had been disclosed previ-
ously in a limited White House

Cattle farmers in London yesterday offered a
viable alternative, so to speak, to the protest cat-
tle massacres conducted earlier this week by
American farmers. To protest "rock bottom" beef
prices, 15 farmers played havoc in London's gov-
ernment district by releasing three 600 - pound
steers in mid-morning traffic. Police struggled for
a few minutes to round up the critters as they
moseyed among the automobiles on Whitehall, the
London equivalent of Pennsylvania Avenue in
Washington. The farmer group leader, John James,
was granted a meeting with agriculture ministry
officials but later said he got little results. It
seems government types aren't easily cowed.

tonight. Our high today will reach I feeble 36-41,
while tonight's low will plunge to a frosty 25-30.

FORD, testifying before the
House Judiciary subcommittee,
admitted his talks with the of-
ficial - White House Chief of
Staff Alexander Haig - took
place last Aug. 1, seven days
before Ford took office, but the
President insisted that he made
no commitments whatsoever
about a pardon at that time.
Ford said that he granted the
pardon for the benefit of the
nation, not Nixon, and he is
convinced he did the right thing
at the right time.
"I wanted to do all I could
to shift our attentions from the
pursuit of a fallen president to
the pursuit of the urgent needs
of a rising nation," he said.
FORD SAID he hoped by
coming before the House Ju-
diciary subcommittee and giv-
ing his account of the pardon
personally he had "at least
cleared the air" of the rumors
and suspicions that have circu-
lated about the pardon since he
announced it Sept. 8.
But most subcommittee mem-
bers said they still regarded
many questions as unanswered,
and Chairman William Hungate
(D-Mo.) said further hearings,
with other witnesses, might be
held after the November elec-

cutting off U.S. military aid to
