'Watergate

judge claims

evidence being concealed

WASHINGTON (UPI) - The
judge trying the Watergate bug-
ging case says not all the issues
are being brought out by t h e
lawyers.
He has periodically taken over
questioning of witnesses and has
b e e n presenting information
which he thinks the jury should
have.
"There is a responsibility of
the judge to develop all the is-
sues in this case because they
have not been developed by the
counsel," U.S. District Judge
John Sirica told a crowded court-
room Friday.
Over the objection of defensej
lawyers, Sirica read the jury a
transcript of his own interroga-
tion Wednesday of Hugh Sloan,
once Nixon campaign treasurer.
The questions and answers
dealt with funneling of money
from Sloan to defendant C. Gor-
don Liddy, former finance coun-
sel of the Committee to Reelect
President Nixon.
Sloan said during the interro-
gation that he turned over $190,-
000 to Liddy for unspecified poli-
tical espionage with the approv-
al of former cabinet members
Maurice Stans and John M i t-
chell and of Jeb Magruder, re-
cently head of Nixon's inaugura-
tion.
The trial is recessed until to-
morrow at 9:30 a.m. The only
other defendant remaining on
trial is James McCord Jr., se-
curity chief for the Committee to
Reelect the President. They are
charged with burglary, conspir-
acy, bugging and wiretapping of
the Democrats during the last
presidential campaign.
The jury was also told Fri-
day that a safe in the White
House office of Howard Hunt Jr.,
a defendant in the case who

pleaded guilty, was drilled open
and found to contain a quantity
of electronic gear including two
microphones disguised as tubes
of lip balm. Hunt was a $100-a-
day White House consultant.
In a related development, U.S.
District Judge George Hart fined
President Nixon's Campaign Fi-

nance Committee $8,000 - the
maximum - for violating the
election spending law. All eight
charges involved Watergate de-
fendant Liddy.
The fine was imposed against
the Finance Committee to Re-
elect the President, which plead-
ed no contest during a five-min-
ute court proceeding.

WASHINGTON (P) - The 93rd
Congress, only four weeks old,
has already done more than any.
in later years to wear down the
seniority system.
In the latest action, House
Democrats last week voted to
subject the 21 committee chair-
men to election by secret ballot.
Also in this session:
Senate Republicans voted to
scrap seniority completely and
simply elect their top man by
majority vote. However, the ac-
tion does not yet affect chair-
men, who are now elected by
Democrats.
-Senate Democrats, though
approving no major reforms,
gave every Democrat at least a
subcommittee chairmanship.
-A group of House Democrats
on Thursday will push for more
reforms at a party caucus.
One of the reforms before the
Democratic caucus would curb
at least some of the power of
committee chairmen.

Proposed by the caucus' own

Rep. Julia Butler Hansen, D-
Wash., the so-called "bill of
rights" reform would permit all
Democrats on a committee to
vote on jurisdiction for subcom-
mittee, set their budgets, and
control their hearings, thus tak-
ing these powers out of . the
hands of committee chairmen.
