connected with the Nixon cam-
paign
McCord said there had been
periodic discussions between him
and Liddy about the proposed
Watergate burglary extending
back to December 1971.
"My best recollection of the
conversation at that particular
point was he referred to the fact
of previous approval of the opera
ion and that Mr. Mitchelt ..in
effect had told him that let's
go ahead and be preparedto get
into operation as quickly as pos-
sible and he said by that, Mr
Mitchell meant within 30 days if
possible."
Both Mitchell and Stans also
issued statements through the
Nixon campaign committee.
STANS, BUDGET director tin-
der President Dwight Eisen-
hower and before that a deputy
postmaster general, had been
Nixon's chief fund raiser in the
1969 campaign also.
"I am greatly dismayed by the
action of the grand jury," he said
in denying any wrongdoing. "I
expect that when all the facts
are heard I will be vindicated."
The indictments are the high-
est-reachin charges to date in
the ballooning scandal know by
the all-encomnassing name of
Waterate. Only once in history
has a US. attornev general been
indicted and onty one Cabinet
member has eer been sent to
prison.

DEAN, DISMISSED as White
House counsel April 30, issued his
statement through an interme-
diary in wake of published re-
ports that Senate and Justice
Department lawyers feel he has
no evidence linking Nixon to the
Watergate coverup. There have
been contrary reports that he has
such evidence.

"The information contained in
these stories is neither complete
nor accurate," he said. "I have
not. and will not, leak my testi-
mony to the media."
While he was still the official
presidential lawyer, Dean issued
a statement saying he would not
be made a scapegoat for others'
misdeeds. lie later put docu-
ments info a bank safe deposit
box and turned the key over to
U.S. Dist. Judge John Sirica, wan
will hold a hearing Monday on
their disposition.
"BLATANT EFFORTS have
been made to publicly intimidate
me," tean said in the statement.
"Efforts have been made to pre
vent me from obtaining relevant
information and records; at-
tempts have been made to in-
fluence the handling of my testi-
mony by the Watergate prosecu-
tors; restrictions h a v e been
placed on the scope of my tetsi-
many as it relates to the White
Misuse,"
Dean did not say who was to
blame.
"There have been discussions
within the White House during
the past four or five months as
to how to end the Watergate mat
ter, but these discussions have
always ended with an unwillin'-
ness to accept the truth for what
it means," Dean said.
Meanwhile, the trial judge in
the Pentagon Papers case yester-
day revealed a memo frot the
new acting FBI director William
Ruckelshaus, disclosing that Dan-
iel Elsberg was overheard o
wiretaps as long as two years
before he released the papers to
the news media.
THE JUDGE'S announcement
stopped further proceedings in
the controversy-wracked trial as
the government was ordered to
find all records on electronic sur-
veillance of Ellsberg.

"I want them now." the judyse{
declared, saying the discovery
was so serious it could take pre-
cedence over scheduled leg
arguments aimed at throwing out
the case.
The government had been tim-
der orders for more than a year
to tell the judge about all wire-
taps relating to the trial.
The memo from Ruckelshaus
said at least one of the times
Ellsberg was overheard in 1969
and 1970 was while he was a
guest at the home of Morton Hal-
perin, a former deputy assistant
secretary of defense. He sAid it
is believed Halperin, a trial wit-
ness, was under electronic sur-
veillance then.
IT WAS the first disclosure tlat
Ellsbeeg, whose name did not
surface publicly until 1971, wein
he released the Pentagon papers,
had been overheard on taps.
