"Inappropriate" Concerning the Getty charge, the committee said the project, to be kept under exclusive White House control, fell through when top presidential aides decided that such use of private money would be "inap- propriate." The panel reproduced in its report a Feb. 17, 1969, memo from White House chief of staff H. R. Haldemann to Ehrlich- man, which said in part: "Bebe Rebozo has been asked by the White House to contact J. Paul Getty in London regarding major contributions. "Bebe would like advice from you or anyone as to bow this can be legally and technically handled. The funds should go to some operating entity other than the National Committee so that we can retain full control of their use." The report gave no indication whether Getty actually made any contributions. It said White House aides had wanted to obtain such funds originally because there was no American Legion auxiliary and the Royal Neighbors of Ameri- a.
