"I think it is assumed any cit- izen the President included would abide by a decision of the supreme court." Ford told a news conference here. "But a person involved in liti- .gallon does not go out and say publicly what he is going to the vice-president said. Ford held the news confer- ence before addressing dedica- tion ceremonies for the Dallas World Trade Center. He made no reference to an incident in- volving his motorcade. A shat- tered window in a patrol car led to police reports later re- versed that a sniper had fired on the motorcade as it moved from the Dallas-Fort Worth Air- port lo the downtown area. A spokesman for the vice- president said later that Ford was unaware of the commotion. The supreme court will hear oral arguments Monday on whether 64 White House tapes should be surrendered to Water- gale special prosecutor Leon Jaworski. Nixon has said in the past that he would abide by a "defin- itive" decision of the court, but he has never defined that quali- fication. Ford said Ihe likelihood of im- peachment has lessened in the last several weeks because the case against the President "has fallen flat in several areas." Ford said no offense has been proved against Nixon and he doubts the President can be tied to Ihe Watergate cover-up. The secret service blamed heat expansion for thc broken, window. State police said, how- ever, they tended to believe Ihe window was shattered by a rock, perhaps thrown up from the roadway by another car. William A. Hawthorne, a se-j cret service spokesman in! Washington, said: "A complete examination of the area and of the vehicle resulted in this con- clusion: It was heat expansion. There was no bullet." Some state officials said they doubled the 82-dcgrec tempera- lure, normal for summer in Dallas, was high enough lo have caused Ihe shattering of the left front window in the air condi- tioned car. They noted there was a large hole in the window and said il shattered inward, for 74 Years bv Pane!

Ilersh New York Times Service WASHINGTON' Charles Colson. in a reflective inler- view abotil his days as a While House tough guy. has declared that he and oilier high level aides were con- vinced lhat they were "above Ihe law" while working for President Nixon. Despite this, he insisted dur- ing a four-hour lape recorded interview last week, "On bal- ance, he's (President Nixon) done a tremendous job as Pre.sident." And In- said hi1 has no "bombshells" in his files that would provide the house judiciary commillee with more evidence in the cur- rent impeachmciil proceed- ings. Colson. who has been or dered lo begin a minimum one-year prison lerm nn Mon- day, ilid Ihe Presidenl's release of the edil- rd While House transcripts lasl Mav a.s "one nf the puoresl exercises of political judgment I've seen." Again he insislcri. however. Dial con- trary to many published re- ports he was not distressed by I h e President's seemingly harsh appraisal of his charac- ter that emerged from those transcripts. Colson also discussed his negative public and press image characterising himself as a victim of what he termed an "almost irreversible" mind sel among Ihe press corps. If hc did serve as a "hatchet said, il was al Ihe specific direction of Ihe I'res idenl. Colson was scnlcnceil last month for his admitted in volvemcnl in obslriicliou of justice against Dr. Daniel Kllsberg. "Inside Ihe White Colson said, "yon had the fecl- ini.1, thai well, tin- congress, they can't gel at us because Ibis is a lug of war between congress and Ihe presidency." "The justice department. Ihey work for us." he added, "so really you know thai as long as you don't do some- thing blatantly stupid nobody really is looking over your shoulder." Ironically, Ihe former presi- dential aide said, the one in- lernal source tor elhical guid- ance inside the While House was former counsel John Dean. emerged as the President's chief atlacker. "1 think Dean tried very hard il u r i n g I he pre-Watergatc period to see thai in Ihe While House did loe the line." Colson said. liul Dean's concern, added Colson, only lo per sonal elhies. "Keeping your- self personally clean is a line idea." he said, "bul you have a public Irusl in terms of what you do wilh Ihe government." Some of (lie and answers in Die Colson inler- view are a.s follows: Q. 'P'u-re were an awful lii( nf stories in 11171 abdil Colsun thc hatchet man, saying he doesn't mini! dial i! gets mil Dial he's a lough guy, he's going to do tilings. A. Did I mind if.' N'o. The real answer in il. I think, is Dial 1 did not wan! !o see the press. So there was a prac- tical reason in terms of the in- lernal While House politics. I mean, if 1 siarlec! gelling good press. I'd he suspect. Anybody in Ihe While HOIIM- slalf and this was a grave mistake Dial we. I think we made anybody on Ihe White HDUM- slaff who got good press had to automatically be suspect because, a fortiori, you imisl have been culhvaliiu' the press, and lo cultivate ihe press meant had lo give them something, and the whole alliludc was don't give them a damned thing. What is the ,1'residcnt talking alioul. when he says in the White House tapes lhat Chuck would do anything. What docs he mean'.' Is he saying that in (car of what you know? A. The 'Chuck would do anything remark' I heard him make dozens of times. 1 had a very good relationship with him. bin he used me in a way that he found effective, but it didn't enhance my popularity standing in the While House. When something was bogged down, he would always get me into it and say, 'Mow Chuck. I don't care' one of his favorite expressions lo me: 'Break all Ihe china in this place. I don't give a damn. I'll back up. Jus! gel this done'. And Ihen bravelv 1 would gel it done. And he would goad the other members of the staff wilh lhal.
