HAIG, who succeeded Haldeman1
as White House chief of staff, said
that on Sept. 28 the President told
him he was going to start review-
ing the nine tapes that then were
under subpoena. This was at a
time when the administration was
still fighting in court to keep fromE
turning the tapes over to Sirica
and to the Watergate grand jury.

The President expressed con-

Haig recalled. It was then decided
to retrieve Haldeman's notes from
his locked file cabinet on the
White House grounds.
THOSE NOTES showed that Wat-
ergate had been under discussion
in that portion of thetape that was
erased and "this was not a piece
of news I accepted with tranquil-
ity," Haig said.
He said that Buzhardt tried to
recreate the tone on the tape and
telephoned him, while he was en
route from Florida to, Memphis,
Tenn., on Nov. 20.
"He was concerned because he
could not find any confirmation
that the machine could cause the
overriding tone in the 18-minute
gap," Haig said. "That was a
shocking piece of news to me and
I was much disturbed by that."
HAIG SAID he waited until Nix-
on got through with his meeting
in Memphis before telling him.
It was in Memphis, at a Repub-
lican governors' conference, that
Nixon assured his listeners that
there were no more bombshells to
come in the Watergate case.
Once told, he said, Nixon order-
ed that the gap be disclosed to
the prosecutors and the judge as
soon as possible and that was done
on Nov. 21.
BUZHARDT had testified at first
he had "no innocent explanation,"
for the buzz, but later was able
to duplicate the two tones that
could be heard on the tape.
