One watcher who asked not to be mentioned by name because he still has relatives in Orange county, Calif., told me, “I ve been watching Ziegler now for five years, and as far as I’m concerned he never left Disneyland. “Ron is a born believer in fantasy and he knows how to treat everyone like children. The very virtues that made him one of the l>est guides at Disneyland are now paying off for him as spokesman for the President of the United States.” “But wouldn't the Disney people be hesitant about rehiring someone who worked iii the White House?” The Ziegler-w atelier shook his head “Ron was never involved with Watergate. He’s clean as a hound s tooth You want to know why?” “Sure.” I said. “Because they didn t trust him. They were afraid if they told him anything, he'd spill it. Everyone else in the White House apparently knew what was going on except Ziegler. They treated him like a dum-dum and now they're all going to jail. and Ron has the last laugh.    bucmwald “I ve never seen Hon laugh.” I said. itopvndn It was just a figure of speech,” my friend replied. “Do you realize that next to Al Haig, the President depends more on Ziegler than any other person in his administration?” “Why is that?'* “Because Hon still believes everything the President tells him.” “You know. sometimes when I watch Ziegler on television. I get the feeling he isn t telling the whole truth that he's making things sound better than they really are.” I said “And where do you think he learned that?” my friend askisl “Disneyland?" .lloAre-lfeffere • Where else? Disney created a world of make-believe and illusion When Ron moved to Washington he inst took that world with him.” "You seem to have a grudging admiration for Ziegler." I said “I do. When Ron first started in his job he didn t know very much, and he said whatever they told him to But now he's adding Ins own fantasies to Watergate and thew are as good as any being put out in this country." “So you think thai no matter what happens to President Nixon. Ziegler won’t have to worry about a jot).’’ “I know it,' my friend replied “How can you in* so sure?” “No one knows this, but Ziegler never quit his job at Di> hey land He just took a leave of absence “ Co    1974.    I    OI    Any«ie%    T    im#*s) J UPI TeleDbofo 'hanks.
