If there are any more cliques of ambitious amateurs who want to run political campaigns in the future, I say let the Democrats have them next time.” He opened his speech noting, "I was specifically admonished before coming that I shouldn’t talk about Watergate, but with some prerogatives of my own, FU ignore those guidelines.” He later told newsmen he really was not admonished by anyone, and inferred that organizers of the conference indicated they wanted him to speak to the conference theme — "Looking Ahead”. In related developments: Former presidential aide John Ehrlichman said Saturday that he has decided to hire a new lawyer for his Watergate conspiracy trial to avoid any possible conflict with the position of his close friend H. R. Halde-man.

Lawrence Hogan (R-Md.). Richardson Sees 50-50 Chance of Impeachment DES MOINES (AP) - Former Atty. Gen.

Learn how a trust fund can be used as a way of reducing taxes, as a source of extra income, as a timing device, as a protective measure, and as an instrument for helping others. Kathryn H.
