Watergate fades into history
three years after the break-in

W A S H I N G T 0 N (UPI)
- On the third anniversary
of the Watergate breakin, about
the only place in Washington
you can hear anyone talk about
it regularly is on the set of 4
movie being shot on location.
At the federal courthouse,
just off Pennsylvania Avenue,
the third and final Watergate
grand jury still hears witnes-
ses. But there is little likelihood
of dramatic new indictments
before the grand jury term
expires July 3.
FIVE MEN were arrested
inside the Democratic National
Committee quarters at the
Watergate complex early Satur-
day, June 17, 1972. The subse-
quent chain of events resulted
in the first resignation of a
President in the nation's his-
tory.
But there are important links
in that chain still hidden from
public view. Among the unan-
swered questions:
-Who was responsible for the

18 minute gap in the tape of
the key conversation former
President Nixon had with his
chief of staff, H. R. "Bob"
Halleman, on June 20, 1972
three days after the breakin?
-What were the circum-
stances surrounding the secret
fund allegedly controlled by
Nixon's good friend, Charles
"Bebe" Rebozo?
-Was there a relationship be-
tween Nixon and billionaire
Howard Hughes, who gave Re-
bozo $100,00 for the President's
re-election?
-Who was responsible for the
faulty transcripts of the White
House tapes given to the House
Judiciary Committee during its
impeachment inquiry?
There are even more funda-
mental questions, which likely
will never be answered:
-As Sen. Howard Baker,
(R-Tenn.), asked so often dur-
ing the 1973 Senate hearings:
What did the President know
and when did he know it? The

tapes which led to Nixon's resig-
nation Aug. 8 pushed the date
of his knowledge to five days
after the breakin. Did Nixon
know of the bugging in ad-
vance?
--What was the purpose of
the burglary? Watergate led to
the worst political crisis in
American history. Given that
risk, which the plotters must
have assessed in advance, what
was so valuable at Democratic
headquarters?
A spokesman for Special
Prosecutor Henry Ruth says
indictments could be forthcom-
ing from. other grand juries
even after the final Watergate
grand jury expires. But he said
there is a big difference
between - the possibility and
likelihood of indictments.
The great }bulk of the prose-
cutions are over, and the toll
comes to more than 50, includ-
ing three of Nixon's Cabinet
members and 20 of his White
House and re-election aides.
