Dean testimony to Judge Roth Judiciary committee
committee unclear dies in Flint releases evidence

WASHINGTON A'. -- Former
White House counsel John Dean
told the House impeachment
inquiry yesterday that President
Nixon did not direct him to ar-
range an alleged $75,000 hush
money payment, three members
of the committee said.
Another committee member,
however, disagreed with their
interpretation of Dean's teoi-
mony.
Deai's testimony came in
closed s e s s i o a under tough,
hard-driving questioning from
the President's lawyer, James
St. Clair and also in respo:ne
to some questions from mem-
bers, the three said.
Rep. Walter Flowers (D-Ala)
said Dean was pressed onl

whether Nixon had directed the
payment to Watergate conspira-
tor E. Howard Hunt. But Dean
refused to answer, saying he
"would not say what the Presi-
dent's state of mind wis or
what he intended," Flowcrs
said.
But Flowers added: "titan
said he left the office o the
President with no feeling that
he had been directed to take
any part in making a payment."
But Rep. Charles Rangel (D-
N.Y.) said Dean never d'recny
answered the question of wheth-
er Nixon directed the payment
to be made but that Dean "said
the President suggested the pay-
ment be made by him (Dean)."

FLINT {M - U.S. District
Court Judge Stephen Roth,
a u t h a r of the controversial
cross-district school desegrega-
tion plan for metropolitan De-
troit, died yesterday. He was 66.
Roth died at St. Joseph Hos-
pital here after suffering his
third heart attack in two years
Wednesday night.
HE DIED AS the U.S. Su-
preme Court was considering
appeals to his order that subur-
ban school districts join the city
school system in a desegrega-
tion plan including massive
cross-district busing.
He was stricken Wednesday
while vacationing in northern
Lower Michigan and was rushed
to a -hospital in Tawas City. He
was transferred yesterday to
Flint.

(Continued from Pate 53,
funded by Nixon c a m p a i g n
money were found in the Dento-
cratic National Headquarters at
the Watergate Hotel and ex-
amines the cover-up and allegad
hush money offers.
The report provides the public
with the first unedited version
of the famous March 21, 1973
meeting in which Dean and
Nixon discuss the payment of
hush money to Watergate con-
spirator Howard Hunt.
In one exchange the President
says "let me put it this way.
Let's suppose you get he mil-
lion bucks and you could get the
proper way to handle it and y u
could hold that side. It would
seem to me that would be worth-
while."
THE STUDY details a conver-
sation between presidential aide
Jahn Ehrlichman and former
Atty. Gen. John Mitchell. "The
President is better served by
having this thing aired, ' Ehr-

lichman tells Mitchell, while del-
icatey urging him to take the
rap.
Mitchell replies, "there is no
way I'm going to do anything
except staying where I 3m be-
cause I'm too far out. 'The fact
of the matter is I got 'euchred'
into this thing."
The report concludes with the
presidential address of April
30, 1973 in which Nixan an-
nounced the resignation of Hal-
deman and Ehrlichman, the fir-
ing of Dean, and the appint,
meat of Elliot Richardson as
attorney general.
Richardson's resignation fram
that post, during a dispute over
the dismissal of Special Prose-
cutor Archibald Cox last fall,
led to the present Watergate
inquiry.
The textile industry accounts
for 50.2 per cent of Hong Kong's
domestic exports and 45.9 per
cent of its industrial labor force,
according to government statis-
tics.

We allow a few communities to capture the bulk
of the industrial wealth of the state and require
other communities to carry the bulk of the burden
of state services.
* All industrial taxes should go to a state fund to be distributed to communities on a
need basis.
* The State should make payments to cities and school districts servicing state institutions
based on the number of people residing in the communities because of the presence of
those institutions, (Universities, colleges, state hospitals, etc.)
* Bursley's proposal for a shift from a property tax to an Income Tax will not increose the
money available unless he increases the rate dramatically. One does not make more pie
by cutting it differently.
"The Burstley State School Aid Formula has NOT enriched tax-poor areas enouath to make
any difference. By directing .our attention to the sharing of nothing, we are distracted from
the fact that there is nothing to share"
