Haldeman admits he's heard tapes

(Contlind from P-cet,
yet to be resotved by the courts,
"I THINK it's a strange thing
that Mr. Haldeman can hear the
tapes but this committee cannot
hear them,' said Sen. Sam Er-
vin, (D-N.C ),the comittee
chairman.
Later in the day, deputy press
secretary Gerald Warren ack-
nowledged that two other White
House staffers had' also heard
some tapes.
He said teplen Bull, a special

assistant to the President, had
listened to a tape of a March 14
Nixon-Dean meeting and that
Fred Buzhardt, the new White
House counsel, heard a record-
ing of a March 20 telephone call
between the President and Dean
THE WHITE HOUSE, through
a letter from Buzhardt, informed
Haldeman's lawyer the witness
could testify to portions of the
meetings he attended. But the
instructions were that "if asked
to testify about meetings or por-

tions of meetings which he did
not attend, but learned solely by
listening to tapes, Mr. Haldeman
has been instructed not to testi-
fy."
Ervin ruled that the claim of
executive privilege is not valid
and "that if you were permitted
to hear what the tapes said you
can tell us what the tapes said,
or your version of it."
Haldeman said he knew of no
transcript made of the tapes,
that he listened to the March 21
tape in his White House office
and to the Sept. 15 tape in his
home.
"WERE YOU authorized by
the President to hear these
tapes?" asked Sen. Howard Bak-
er, (R-Tenn.).
"Yes," said Haldeman. "I
heard them at the President's
authority and for the purpose of
reporting their contents to the
President."
Nixon, in refusing to release
the tapes to the Senate panel or
special Watergate prosecutor,
said their contents might be sub-
ject to misinterpretation, but in-
sisted they show hint innocent.
H IDEAIAN, one of the three
or four people in the White House
who knew that the Nixon record-
ing des-ices existed, said he heard
the March 21 recording last April
while he was still chief of staff
and the Sept. 15 tape in the early
part of July.
"I listened to the March 21
tape in my office at the White
House and I listened to the Sept.
15 tape in my residence," Halde-
nan said. Ile said he made notes.
Sen. Joseph Montoya, (D-N.-
M.), asked who was there when
Haldeman played the Sept. 15
tape in his home.
"NO ONE," said Haldeman.
"Who was present when you
played the March 21 tape?"
"No one."
TE COMMITTEE announced
yesterday it would call six more
itnesses after Haldemanbefore
taking a summer break, even if
it means going beyond the Aug.
3 recess of Congress.

In other Watergate develop-
ments:
* Senate minority L e a d e r
Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania pre-
dicted the President will "come
out fighting" after the commit-
ee recesses. At a news confer-
ence, he also blamed Dean for
provoking unfavorable public
opinion toward Nixon.
* Warren told newsmen that
the President has not changed
his mind about refusing to turn

over tape recordings of presi-
dential conversations either to
the Senate panel or to special
prosecutor Archibald Cox,
* The accusation by Sen. Ad-
lai Stevenson (D-Ill.) that Nix-
on was obstrtcting justice in not
turning over Watergate material
brought a countercharge fro
Atty. Gen. Elliot Richardson,
who accused Stevenson of not un-
derstanding the constitutional is-
sues involved.

bureau, on to special assignment
on criminal organizations, and
finally to captain.
His face was well known by
radical groups in Ann Arbor. Said
Steve Nissen of the fuman
Rights Party (HRP), "He went
to more SDS (Students for a
Democratic S o c i e t y) meetings
than any other person I know of.
"He was a one-man red squad
whose basic job was to keep tabs
on the radical groups."
CIIEF OF POLICE Walter
Krasny described his position in
the force as "keeping the lid on
the town."
He attended anti-war demon-
strations, sit-ins, and the first
Ann Arbor Hash Bash where he
was reportedly looking "slightly
unhappy.'
He played a major role in
many historical disputes, one of
the most famous being the con-
fiscation of the movie Flaming
Creatu

STAUDENMEIER viewed the
film with the rest of the audi-
ence for seven minutes, walked
into the projection room and
impounded it for "obscenity."
Another one of his famous busts
as the arrest of the entire cast
of Dionysius '69, a lay showing
several nude scenes.
But in spite of his hard atti-
tude toward sex in the entertain-
ment world and other radical
ideas, two radicals of a group he
used to watch described him as
"not a bad guy."
