Hoover defensive over JFK probe

(Continued from Page 1)

A notation on an FBI memoran-
dum dated Nov. 29, 1963, reports the
initial refusal of Warren to head the
commission. It says simply that
Deputy Attorney General Nicholas
Katzenbach "advised the chief jus-
tice had declined to head the commis-
ALTHOUGH the documents don't
reflect it, before the day was out,
President Lyndon Johnson had per-
suaded Warren to head the commis-
sion. Warren, who had been reluctant
to take part in activities off the
bench, told the story himself years

she had to lock him in a bathroom in
April, 1963 to keep him from trying to
assassinate Richard Nixon, newly
disclosed FBI files showed today.
J. Edgar Hoover concluded that
Marina Oswald was confused and
that Lyndon Johnson, then vice
president and visiting Dallas at the
time the incident occurred, was
Oswald's apparent target, the files
THE INCIDENT tended to support
the ultimate conclusion of the War-
ren Commission that Oswald was
John Kennedy's killer and that he
acted less out of political opposition
to Kennedy than out of a generalized
grievance against society.
The commission found that Oswald
was "moved by an overriding hostil-
ity to his environment."
Also discovered in the files was a
"Dear Edgar" letter Hoover re-
ceived from Richard Nixon two years
before he was elected President. The
letter expressed concern about a
Detroit Newssarticle about crank
letters charging Nixon and Hoover
with Kennedy's slaying.
"I wOULD appreciate it if you
would let me know what your inves-
tigation discloses," Nixon wrote in a
letter dated Jan. 6, 1966, signed

"Sincerely, Dick Nixon."
Hoover replied four days later that
the newspaper article referred to
about 73 identical letters, dated Dec.
16, 1965 and mailed in Detroit to
various labor unions.
Hoover said also that another
series of letters had been mailed in
Sacramento, Calif., to various
churches, banks, labor unions and
radio stations around the country,
signed "Father H. Law of the Jungle

"These letters advised that the
'Society' had given me a death sen-
tence and the members would carry
out my execution," Hoover wrote to
Hoover ended the letter saying
they were investigating the identity
and location of the writer and would
keep Nixon advised. He signed it
"With warm personal regards, Ed-

Bachrach also pointed out that the
Gas company's legal position is unusual
since it admitted the improper billing.
"They are trying to regroup on their
own negligence," he argued.
Bachrach met with Consolidated Gas'
Kuebler last November, but the two
were unable to resolve their differen-
ces. It was then that Bachrach filed for
a hearing in behalf of Burrell.
THE GAS COMPANY and Bachrach
will argue the case before an indepen-

the final determination.
Meanwhile, Joyce Akins, who lives
above Catherine Burrell in apartment

months to get Consolidated Gas to
refund the money she overpaid as a
result of the company's mistake.

recruits at 'U'
Despite a long history of campus protest on the subject, including a mini-
demonstration held yesterday in front of West Engineering, the Central In-
telligence Agency (CIA) still quietly recruits here bi-annually.
The protest, organized by six people who call themselves the Chowder
and Marching Club, was intended to "make people aware that the CIA is in-
terfering in our lives."
THE 'CIA on campus" issue last surfaced in April, 1976 when
the Michigan Student Assembly held a referendum on whether the CIA
should be allowed to recruit on campus. Students voted overwhelmingly to
let the agency continue recruiting.
According to Bill Peterson from the CIA office of the Assistant to the
Director for Public Affairs in Washington the CIA recruitment campaing
encompasses most college campuses. "We're looking for able, capable, high
level type people on campuses throughout the United States," he said.
The Career Planning and Placement Center in the Student Activities
Building has not arranged interviews for the CIA for several years, but such
interviews are usual events at the School of Engineering.
VIRGINIA Stageth of the Career Planning and Placement staff was
unaware that CIA interviews were being held on campus. She said the last
contact her office had with the CIA was November of 1975.
Referring to CIA recruiters on campus Stageth said, "I don't think
they've been here since the late sixties."
However, the CIA did have a recruiter, C. Minich, on campus recently.
Minich concluded his two day recruiting effort yesterday after speaking to
seven interested students. The interviews were held in West Engineering.
Minich could not be reached for comment.
JOHN YOUNG, Director of School Placement at Engineering said "they
(the CIA) are pretty regular customers." Eva Rushlow of the placement
staff, said the CIA "comes twice a year, in the fall and winter."
Rushlow said the agency "interviews for engineering students only."
Young said "they're interested in pretty high powered talent." He men-
tioned electrical engineers specifically.
While the CIA may openly come to the Engineering School twice a year
to recruit new personnel it is speculated that the agency also uses covert
methods of recruiting on this campus.

to the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals
which handles cases from several mid-
western states.
THE PRESIDENT and Bell chose
Webster over U.S. District Judge Frank
McGarr of Chicago. Bell had narrowed
the field to those two after Carter's first
nominee, U.S. District Judge Frank
Johnson of Montgomery, Ala., bowed
out last November because of con-
tinuing health problems.
Kelly, who had been scheduled to re-
tire the $57,000-a-year post at the first of
the year. agreed to stay on until Feb. 15
after Johnson withdrew.
In nearly a decade of public life, Web-
ster has attracted little criticism. Some
civil rights lawyers suggest that if there
is a weakness in his record, it is in that
field. But others say they found Web-
ster fair even when they lost cases in
his courtroom.
WEBSTER'S membership in two pri-
vate social clubs which have no black or
women members could prove to be a
source of controversy when he seeks
confirmation in the Senate. Bell's mem-
bership in the same type of clubs in his

native Atlanta set off a round of criti-
cism from civil rights groups at the
time he faced Senate confirmation a
year ago.
Webster belongs to the Noonday Club,
an exclusive luncheon club for bankers,
lawyers and businessmen. Club secre-
tary William Van Cleve said the mem-
bership rules contain "no prohibition of
any kind based on race, religion or
But candidates for membership must
be sponsored by current members and
those are all white males, Van Cleve
acknowledged. He said that no blacks
or women have been proposed for
ed last week that Webster also belongs
to the Veiled Prophets, an elite St. Louis
social organization which sponsors an
annual debutants ball.
Local civil rights groups have
criticized the group as racist, and the
Times said Webster has told friends he
has been urging the group to broaden
its membership policies. The Times
said the current members are 1,000
white men.
