THE KIDS on school board president Duane Renk in's block look on as fifteen HRP members protest
his support for the alternative school for disruptive children, and his alleged property tax evasion.
HRP protestors picket home
of school board president

(Continuedfrom Page 3)
The demonstrators also charg-
ed that Renken's management
firm, Summit - Hamilton, owes
the city some $16,000 in proper-
ty taxes, and that Renken per-
sonally owed some $2,000 in 1972
taxes until July 31 of this year.
ABOUT TWO thirds of local
property t a x e s finance the
schools.
The picketers carried signs
reading, "Off the Board" and
"We Don't Want Badass High"
as curious neighbors stood on
their lawns and crowds of chil-

dren in bathing suits stood and
watched.
The onlookers had comments
about both Renken's taxes and
the school for disruptives.
NEIGHBOR Merle Crawford,
a professor in business adminis-
tration, shrugged off questions
about Renken's tax situation say-
ing, "We all break the law all
the time. Duane broke the law
and paid the penalty."
When questioned about Ren-
ken's moral responsibility as the
School Board president, Craw-
ford said, "Does he have a

responsible for the bungled foray
into the Democratic inner sanc-
tums.
Gray recalled his July 6, 1972,
telephone call to Nixon when he
said he told the President "people
on your staff are trying to mor-
tally wound you," and added:
"FRANKLY, I expected the
President to ask me some ques-
tions."
His recollection of that call
differed somewhat from the
President's.
Gray said he called then-cam-
paign director Clark MacGregor
to tell him "I felt that people on
the White House staff were care-
less and indifferent in their use
of the CIA and the FBI." He said
MacGregor told Nixon and that
37 minutes later the Psesident
was on the phone.
Nixon, Gray said, responded to
his statement with: "Pat, you
just continue to conduct your
aggressive and thorough investi-
gation"
THE PRESIDENT in his May
22 statement on Watergate, said
he phoned Gray that day to con-
- gratl~tate him on the successfud
handling of an airliner highjack-
ing and that "in the discussion,
Mr. Gray suggested that the mat-
ter of Watergate might lead
higher. I told him to press ahead
with his investigation."
Gray said he trusted then-
counsel John Dean and John
Ehrlichman, even after they
handed him- papers to destroy.
FBI agents investigating Water-
gate were skeptical in the weeks
after the break-in that anyone
high in the government would-
have anything to do with it, Gray
said.
THAT SAME reasoning led to
some discussion that the burglars

might have been double agents.
The assumption that the bur-
glary led no higher than Gordon
Liddy-one of the seven convict-
ed in the break-in and wiretap-
ping--prevailed in the FBI into
late March this year when the
case finally blew up, Kray said,
adding:
"Even in the discussions we
had within the Federal Bureau of
Investigation during my confir-
mation hearings . . . we still felt
. . . that these men were far
too intelligent to have anything
to do with this kind of sordid
affair."
BUT GRAY SAID he was led
to call the President on July 6
because he felt Dean and Ehr-
lichman were going to ask CIA
Deputy Director Vernon Walters
to write a letter to him saying
there were CIA reasons why the
FBI should not pursue an in-
vestigation into the source of the
so-called "Mexican checks."

moral responsibility to pay his
taxes? Gee, I don't know if I can
answer yes or no. You'd have to
decide what is 'moral'-I'd rath-
er duck that question," and
quickly went back inside his
home.
However, there were some who
disagreed vehemently with Ren-
ken's neighbor.
DUANE RENKEN was in his
executive office at Summit-Ham-
ilton at the time of the demon-
stration and expressed surprise
when told by reporters that
there were picketers in front
of his home.
Their presence did not sway
Renken's support for the con-
cept of the alternate school,
however.
Renken firmly denied that the
school would become a mere
"dumping ground" for poor and
black students, as critics of the
proposal have charged.
He commented, "the school
would be for kids on long sus-
pensions, and these are kids of
all sizes, shapes and colors, if
you check the weekly record."
WHEN QUESTIONED a b o u t
Summit-Hamilton's tax payments,
Renken exlained that his com-
pany was not liable for all the
property owned. As for the 1972
school taxes he owed until July
31, 1973, Renken said, "I don't
know about that. I'd have to
check the record."
