Jury finds Howe
guilty on sex charge

Ford said to request more wiretaps

(Continrued from Pate l)
I think justice will be done in
District Court."
Howe's wife, who has been
with her husband in each of his
court appearances, said, "He
will be proven innocent in Dis-
trict Court."
IN HIS closing arguments,
prosecutor Philip Palmer told
the jury: "You may feel badly
for Mr. H1owe. You may feel a
career is on the line . . . But
I submit you cannot have a de-
cision on that. There are many
tragedies in this life."
Mitchell then told the jury:

asking for justice. If his career
is wrecked, that remains to be
seen."
Ie described the prosecution's
case a a sham and said an ac-
count by the decoy prostitutes
of their conversation with Howe
was "a contrived, fabricated
script."
HOWE DID not immediately
pay the fine. The judge gave the
defense 30 days to pay the fine,
while the appeal is being made.
Howe, in a statement issued
by a campaign aide yesterday,
said. "I am innocent of this
misdemeanor charge and I in-
tend to keep fighting.
"I have said from the begin-
ning that because of the mas-
sive and prevasive pretrial pub-
licity containing inflamatory and
untrue statements, which this
court openly acknowledged, it
made a fair and impartial trial
for me impossible.
"I HAVE said before, and
still do, that I want to tell my
side of this matter . . . I shall,
at the appropriate time, either
in court, or, if necessary, in
another public forum, tell all
that I know about this matter.
"I'm still a candidate and I
will continue to fight for what I
know is right," Howe said.
Howe is not opposed for re-
nomination in the Democratic
primary, but he will face op-
position in the general election,
Two Republicans, Dan Mar-
riott and J. Preston Hughes, are
seeking their party's nomination
in the Sept. 14 primary.
IN WASHINGTON, Sen. Frank
Moss (D-Utah) said that while
he has compassion for Howe
and his family, he still stands
by his earlier statement that it
would be best for Howe to step
down from office. Moss said,
however, that, "until he has
exhausted his legal remedies, I
will not comment on the crim-
inal charge against him."

WASHINGTON '?)--A House
subcommittee chairman con-
tended yesterday that the Ford
administration wiretaps more
than the Nixon administration
did. But the Justice Department
said he misinterpreted its rec-
ords and that the number of taps
actually declined.
"We've seen a marked, dra-
matic increase in wiretap re-
quests under Ford," Rep. John
Moss (D-Calif.) said after a
Ford-sought court order success-
fully blocked American Tele-
phone & Telegraph Co. from
giving the subcommittee its rec-
ords of government wiretap re-
quests.
"WHO IS he tapping? Why
the escalation?" asked Moss,
chairman of a House subcom-
mittee on investigations and
oversight. He said the panel's
counsel will ask the court next
week to lift its ban.
Moss said a Justice Depart-
ment affidavit outlining its wire-
tap requests to AT&T shows 76
in 1972; 95 in 1973; 141 in 1974,
the year in which Ford became
president; 141 again in 1975 and
58 for the first six months of
this year.
The Justice Department said
the number of wiretaps actually
undertaken dropped from 190 in
1974 to 122 last year.
THE difference appeared to
be over what was being counted
-wiretap requests or letters
making the requests.
A Justice Department spokes-
man said, "The reason why
there is an increase in letter
requests to the telephone com-
pany is because of a change in
policy between the Justice De-
partment and AT&T."
The spokesman said that
"prior to 1974, one letter re-
questing a wiretap could cover
several wiretaps. After 1974,
Justice and AT&T officials
agreed that one letter should
cover one request.
"ALSO AFTER 1974, the at-
torney general could terminate
a wiretap, then after a review,

reinstall the tap, but this would
take an additional letter of re-
quest."
A temporary restraining or-
der prohibiting the release of
AT&T's records was issued by
U.S. District Judge Oliver
Gasch on Thursday, hours after
President Ford asked the Jus-
tice Department to "undertake
such action in the courts . . .
as may be appropriate to pre-
vent the disclosure of this sen-
sitive information."
"THE President has decided
to stonewall this subcommittee
and stonewall the people of this
nation," Moss charged. "The
President is charged with seeing
that the laws are faithfully

executed. Rather than carrying
out his responsibility, he is in-
terferring with the legislative
powers of the Congress enum-
erated in . . . the Constitution,"
Presidential spokesman Ron
Nessen declined comment on
Moss' statement because he said
the matter was in litigation,
There was no indication how
many, if any, requests came
from Ford himself or from
others in the administration. But
MossĀ° said Congress has the
right tofind out.
"The subcommittee is op-
posed to the unwarranted judi-
cial interference . . . and would
resist any attempt to have a
temporary order made perma-
nent," he said.
