Richard Nixon, have asked
Secial Watergate Prosecutor
Charles Ruff to look into the
possibility that Ford lied at his
confirmation hearings for vice
president.
CONYERS said he met with
Ruff Tuesday and was told the
nrosecutor's decision would be
forthcoming by the end of the
- week. A
The incident in question oc-
curred in September and Octo-
ber 1972 when the late Rep.
Wright Patman was seeking
authority from his House Bank-
ing and Currency Committee to
investigate possible high-level
involvement' in the Watergate
break-in the previous June.
Nihon, according to the White
House tapes, directed that then-
House Minority Leader Gerald
Ford be enlisted to help block
Patman's inquiry. There are
conflicting reports as to whether
Nixon's instructions were car-
ried out.
IN 1973, after Ford was nom-
inated to be vice president,. he
testified that he had not talked
to Nixon, chief of staff H. R.
Haldeman, domestic adviser
John Ehrlichman or White
House counsel John Dean about
blocking the Patman hearings:
But he added that he was in
almost daily contact with White
House lobbyists during that
period, although he had no rec-
ollection of discussin that spe-
cific issue with them.
Ford supported the successful
effort to thwart Patman's in-
quiry during, the 1972 election
campaign, but he insisted he did
so on his own initiative.

Dean, in an interview broad-
cast. yesterday on NBC's Today
show, said the man detailed to
relay Nixon's wishes to Ford
was Richard Cook, a White
House lobbyist who is now
Washington vice president for
Lockheed Aircraft Corp.
Cook, in a 'statement respond-
ing to Dean, said: "Despite
John Dean's repeated and fran-
tic requests, I never spoke with
Mr. Ford about the need to
deny Mr. Patman's requests for
subpoena power," which was
the issue the Republicans fought
in order to kill the probe.
