Report says'
funds used
to bygift
(Continued from Page 3)
The White House had no'im-
mediate comment on the report.
PUBLIC RELEASE of the re-
port was authorized by the full
Watergate committee.
The total price of the earrings
was $5,650. The report shows
that $560. of the amount was
paid by the President's personal
check with another $90 coming
from Rose Mary Woods, his per-
-sonal secretary.
The report did not fully ac-
count for the balance of $438.62
but showed it was part of a titil
$5,000 check generated by Re-
bozo and made out to the
jewelry firm.
The money flowed in a com-
plex series of transactions that
began with the deposit of $6,000
in the account of the Florida
Nixon For President Commit-
tee," the report said.
THOSE FUNDS were later
transferred to the special ac-
count maintained at Rebozo's
Key Biscayne Bank by Thomas
Wakefield who is Rebozo's tat-
torney, long-time business asso-
ciate and a director of the bank.
According to the report, $4,-
562.38 then was moved to ,roust
account maintained by Wake-
field's law firm, Wakefield,
Hewitt and Webster.
On the same date $5,300 was
withdrawn from that ace sunt
and deposited in the law firm's
account at the First N-ional
Bank of Miami, the rep l't said
and added:
"ON THE SAME date s that
transfer, a cashier's check was
purchased . . which was fur-
nished by Harry Winston, a
Jeweler in New York, for the
purchase of platinum and dia-
mond earrings, furnished by
President Nixon to his wife on
her birthday."
"The complex four-stage pro-
cess of payment for this Yift
concealed the fact that the funds
originated from contributions to
the 1968 campaign and were
ultimately used by Rebozo on
behalf of President Nixon," he
renort said.
It stated that Rehozo has re-
fused a committee request that
he provide documents showing
the pttrpose of the original $6,000
transfer of campaign ftnds to
the Wakefield special account.

Mitchell testifies

Contined from l Pue 3)
seas interested in the events of
March 21, 1973, the day Presi-
dent Nixon and aides discussed
demands for money from Water-
g:ite conspirator E.. IHoward
Ilsnt and also the day $75,000
was delivered to llunt's lawyer
William Bittmn.
TIlE COVER-UP indictment
listed among the overt acts in
the alleged conspiracy a tele-
p h o n e conversation between
Mitchell and H. R. "Bob" Hal-
deman, White Htouse staff chief,
at 12:30 p.m. on March 21.
But Mitchell told the commit-
tee the telephone call had noth-
ing to do with Watergate or
payments to Iunt. He said
IHaldeman called to tell him the
President wanted him to come
to Washington.
The Haldeman - Mitchell con-
versation took place shortly af-
ter a conversation Nixon had
with Haldeman and John Dean
in which the Hunt demand was
discussed.
ACCORDING to the Judici ory
Committee transcript of that
discussion, Nixon at one point,
referring to the money for Hunt,
said, "For Christ's sake, get
it."
James St. Clair, the Presi-
dent's impeachment d e f e n s e
lawyer, has tried to establish
that the $75,000 delivered to Bitt-
man the evening of March 21,

was arranged for in a telephone
conversation hefore the Nixon
meeting.
That co'ersation was be-
tween De:tn and Frederick La-
Rte. Bat swhen LaRste testified
before the committee he was
unable to soy definitely what
time of day he talked to Dean.
lie said he thooght it wa.s in
the morning hut that it cottld
have heen liter.
LaRue sthseqiently talked to
Mitchell, who authorized n:iy-
ment of the money which was
described as heing for attorneys'
fees and living expenses.
Butt Mtichell reportedly t'd
the commstittee his records snow-
ed he talked to LaRue on atch
20 not on the 21st.
Mitchell is scheduled to io on
trial Sept. 9 in the :overi-up
case.

before his concert last night at Hill Aud. In addition to playing
the piano, Newman also plays the organ and the harpsichord.

REBOZO testified in executive
session that he retained about
$6,000 from the 1%8 campaign
"because the campaign owed
him that amount for expenses
that he had covered during the
campaign," the report said.
It said Rebozo set up the first
Wakefield special account on
April 15, 1969. "Thomas H.
Wakefield testified that he did
not know that this account was
opened until later when Rebozo
advised him that he had esta-
lishedbthe account and that they
wete oth signators," the report
said.
