SMitchell continues to
contradict Magruder

(Continued from Page 1)
Mgrder, Mitchell's deputy, and
TaRue-were at that third meeting
in Key Biscayne, Fla.
MAGRUDER TESTIFIED that
Mitchell approved the plan March
30 after rejecting the earlier and
most costly versions.
LaRue, who has pleaded guilty
to a single count of conspiring to
obstruct justice in the Watergate
cover-ip, d e n i e d Magruder's
claim that he, too, approved the
wiretapping.
Thus, the committee now has
three different versions of that
meeting. Mitchell said he flatly
threw out the plan and assumed
that ended the matter.
THE BREAK-IN of Democratic
Party headquarters in the Water-
gate was some 2'z months later.
Liddy and six others were con-
victed of conspiracy, burglary
and wiretapping.
Mitchell firmly defended his
keeping the story of Watergate
from his close friend Nixon, say-

PRESIDENT NIXON trades pleasantries with Sen. Hubert Humphrey (D-Minn.) yesterday at a cere-
mony of the Capitol Historical Society. For Nixon the meeting must have brought back memories of
past triumphs-a far cry from the Watergate failures of today.

ing the President's re-election
was more important in 1972 than
disclosure of W a t e r g a t e and
"White House horrors."
In related developments the
Washington Star-News reported
yesterday that a dummy organi-
zation operating out of a base-
ment backroom used by Presi-
dent Nixon's former lawyer, Her-
bert Kalmbach, to funnel a secret
$1.5 million in cashier's checks to
1970 Republican Senate cam-
paigns.
SOME OF THE money reputed-
ly went to Weicker's campaign
but his office had no immediate
comment on the allegation.
Quoting sources close to the
Watergate proceedings, the Star-
News said Kalmbach used a
dummy name, "The Public In-
stitute," to distribute the money.
Senate investigators have been
told, the article said, that the
Kalmbach money was distributed
for about two dozen candidates
under the direct supervision of
former White bouse chief of staff
ft. R. Haldeman.
KALMBACH DREW the checks
on the Security Pacific National
Bank in his home town of New-
port Beach, Calif., and forwarded
the money to Washington, the
newspaper said. The source of
the money, it said, is still unex-
plained.
The operation, which the Star-
News said worked out of a base-
ment backroom in a Washington
townhouse, is believed to have in-
vested a total of some $3 million
into 1970 Senate and state house
races.
THE STAR-NEWS said Weicker
got $65,000 from the White House
for his 1970 campaign. Senate in-
vestigators, the newspaper said,
have been told Weicker received
a $35,000 cashier's check out of
the Kalmbach fund made out to
the D.C. Committee for Weicker.
Deputy White House Press Sec-
retary Gerald Warren yesterday
reiterated that President Nixon
will not, under any circum-
stances, abpear before the Senate
committee. That stand is not
negotiable, he added.
Sen. Sam E r v i n (D-N.C.),
chairman of the committee and
the Senate's leading constitu-
tional e x p e r t, challenged the
boundaries of executive privilege
and separation of powers invoked
by Nixon. ,
MITCHELL SAID he believed
"the President will respond to
the salient points of your hear-
ings" but only after their com-
pletion.
An Associated Press poll show-
ed the committee will not vote to
subpoena Nixon as a witness,
but may order the release of cer-
tain presidential papers.
