Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - August 6, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Otlar Tucs., Ausust 6, 1UT4 "Serious WASHINGTON t A P Here is She text of a written statement issued Monday by President Nixon: I have today instructed my attorneys So make available to tho rommit- toe, anil I am makji-; public, the transcripts of three Con- versations with II.

I Mated that "as far ,is v.hat the Pres- ident personally knew and did with regard to Watergate and the cover-up is concerned, these materials together with those already made available will tell it all." May Review Shortly after tha1, in May, 1 made n preliminary review of some of the 6-1 taped conver- sations subpoenaed by the special prosecutor. Among the conversations 1 listened to at that time were two of those of June 23. Al- though I recognized that these presented potential problems, I did not inform my staff or my counsel of it, or those ar- guing my case, nor did I amend my submission to the judiciary committee in order to include and reflect it. At the time, I did not. realize the extent of the implications w hi c h these conversations might now appear to have. As a result, those arguing my case, as well as those passing judgment on the case, did so with information that was in- complete and in some re- spects erroneous. This was a serious act of omission for which I take full responsibility and which deeply regret.

"Alert FBI" I said ihnc I therefore gave instructions that the FBI should be alerted to coordin- ate with the CIA, and to en- sure that the investigation not expose these sensitive na- tional security matters. That statement was based on my recollection at the time some 11 months later plus documentary materials and relevant public testimony of those involved. The June 23 tapes clearly show, however, that at the time I gave those instructions I also discussed the political aspects of the situation, and that I was aware of the ad- vantages this course of action Cyprus Truce Signinq f i Delay' Fighting Flares By United Press International Turkish and Greek Cypriot forces exchanged fire along Cyprus' embattled northern coast Tuesday and Turkey said) its forces repulsed a Greek ar- mored assault west of the key northern port of Kyrenia.
