Nixon's Accusations Are Making American Fishermen Boiling Mad By Art Buehwald WASHINGTON At this point in time it seems to me that President Nixon and his small band of hardy defenders would be careful not to alienate any group in this country unneces- sarily. The White House probably doesn't even realize it, but it has made practically every fisherman in America boiling mad. Foster Walden, a friend and devoted angler, told me: "Every time the house judiciary committee asks for a piece of paper or a tape the President accuses them of going on a fish- ing expedition." "What's wrong with "Nixon seems to indicate that there's something wrong with fishing." "Come on, Foster, you're oversensitive." "I am he said angrily. "Fishing, thanks to the Administration, now has a dirty connotation to it. Just yesterday I told some friends at the office I was going on a fishing expedition this weekend, and they said they were going to report me to security." "That's ridiculous, Foster. When Nixon or the White House accuses the house committee of going on a fishing expedition they're not talking about fishing." BUCHWALD "What are they talking he demanded. "They're talking about the house asking for records and tapes that they have no business asking for. "Well, why don't they just say ftattler lit Explain "Because it's easier to explain it to the American people if you say they're on a fishing expedition." "What has fishing got to do with "Well, I guess the first image that comes to mind is some- one sitting there holding a pole in his hand who doesn't know what he's doing." "You see. That means if you go fishing you're Foster said. "Not necessarily. It could also mean you're trying to get some poor defenseless fish to bite on your hook." "That's even Foster yelled angrily. "Fishing is one of the greatest sports in the world. You don't harm any- one. You don't bother anyone. You sit there with your thoughts and you forget all about the mess they made of everything in Washington. "Why did they have to drag dirty politics into "I guess because the White House feels that if the Ameri- can people feel the house committee is on a fishing expedition, they'll believe congress is up to no good. After all, Foster, most people do think fishing is an asinine way to pass the time." Muck and Mirt; Foster was livid. "It is not a stupid way to pass the time, and if all those people who get messed up in Watergate had gone fishing instead of what they did, they wouldn't be in the trouble they're in today. Fishermen at least have enough sense to stay out of muck and mire. "Those are harsh words, I said. "Look at it from Nixon's point of view. He has to use every defense he can. If he can prove congress is just fishing, he can save himself from being impeached. After all, that's all he's got left. "He's such a big football Foster said. "Why couldn't he accuse congress of roughing the "It's not the same thing. The one thing Americans under- stand is that fishing is a poor way to hook a President." "Not if you use worms for bait." Foster chuckled at his own joke. CODvrlflhl 19M. Los Annclcs Times
