Others had pointed to Dean as
a key member of the conspiracy
to hide official involvement. as
the conveyor of executive clem-.
ency offers, and as a raiser of
funds to keep the Watergate de-
fendants silent.
Dean's version, essentially, was
that he did not know about
the June 17 Watergate
burglary in advance-that he was
in the center of cover-up activi-
ties but did nothing without con-
currence of H. R. Haldeman, the
President's chief of staff and
John Ehrlichman, his principal
aide for domestic affairs.
DEAN HAD immunity from
prosecution for any self-incrim-
inating statements he made-but
not for evidence developed in-

His story was one of trying to
get the White House to admit the
truth and that he told the Presi-
"I thought it' was time for sur-
gery on the cancer itself and that
all those involved must stand up
and account for themselves and
that the President himself get
out in front on this matter."
BUT, HE SAID, Nixon did not
understand. Eventually, he said,

ized "I was not playing ball . . .

to them," and he saw they were

aides evolved a plan to have
John Mitchell take the blame and

THE MEDICAL care program
begun at the jail is "one of the

Reno. Before it was started
"people died in here due to lack"
of medical care,' she says.
Over fifty per cent of the jails
in this county lack any kind of
medical care at all. The Wash-
tenaw jail at the present time
has a doctor in the jail for one
hour every day and on call at all

employing a dentist soon.

Press Secretary Ronald Ziegler
said Nixon was being kept in-

would have no comment this
Dean said Nixon told him on
Feb. 27 that his chief aides,
Haldeman and Ehrlichman,
"were principals in the matter."
The former White House lawyer
said vigorous efforts were under-
taken to hide White House ties
to the break-in and named the
chief participants as:
Haldeman, Ehrlichman, former
Atty. Gen. John Mitchell; former
Asst. Atty. Gen. Robert Mardian;
campaign deputy director Jeb

committee questioning.
Dean insisted he did not know
specifically about the Watergate
break-in before it happened, but
that he sat in on meetings with
Mitchell, Magruder and Liddy
when bizarre forms of political
espionage were discussed.
DEAN SAID Haldeman and
Ehrlichman directed the exten-
sive cover-up activities, including
efforts to sidetrack a congres-
sional investigation, destroy evi-
dence, tailor the testimony of
principals and blame the Central
Intelligence Agency for all that
had happened.
At a meeting March 13, Dean
said, Nixon told him that Colson
had discussed an offer of execu-
tive clemency for E. Howard
Hunt, aiother of the Watergate
Dean said he told Nixon about
money demands being made by
the Watergate defendants and
that there was no money to pay.
"HE ASKED me how much it
would cost," Dean said. "I told
him that I ciuld only make an

estimate, that it might be as
high as a million dollars or more.
"He told me that that was no
problem and he also looked over
at Haldeman and repeated the
same statement."
Dean said he felt all along that
Nixon did not seem to under-
stand the implications of the
cover-up going on and "I did not
know if he realized that he him-
self could be getting involved in
an obstruction of justice situation
by having promised clemency to
ON MARCH 21, Dean said he
talked with Nixon. "What I had
hoped to do in this conversation
was to have the President tell
me that we had to end the
matter-now," Dean said.
"I began by telling the Presi-
dent that there was a cancer
growing on the presidency and
that if the cancer was not re-
moved that the President himself
would be killed by it. I also told
him that it was important that
this cancer be removed imme-
diately because it was growing
more deadly every day."
