Nowhere was Nixon connect- ed with any wrongdoing or in- Panel Blasts Presidents' Secret Acts WASHINGTON (AP) A spe- cial senate committee has con- cluded that many of the most significant presidential decisions have been withheld from the congress and the public, its re- port showed Sunday. The panel said the practice that has permitted the with- holding has 'hidden actions relat- ing to the 1969-70 secret U.S. bombing of Cambodia, as well as other matters relating to the Vietnam war. The report by (he senate spe- cial committee on national emergencies is scheduled to be issued later this week, along with proposed legislation to tighten the laws that have per- mitted the withholding. The panel has been studying the use of national emergency proclamations as a basis for presidential actions taken without the approval of congress. In the report, it said the gaps in the public record are "pri- marily due .to a failure by congress to specify substantive standards under which all presi- dential directives should be re- corded. ''In it adds, volvement in Watergate, and the 30-minute report left view- ers with the impression he had fallen victim to a Democratic party conspiracy. Special Broadcast The government line was laid down in a special national broadcast by top political com- mentator Valentin Zorin and Leonid Zamyatin, chief of the state news agency, Tass. Zamyatin asserted it was "nec- essary to stress" that Water- gate was given a strong push into public prominence "after Ihe Democrat defeat in the 1972 presidential election." By using Watergate, he said, the Democrats created tension across the U. S., using the af- fair to build up national sup- port for the 1974 congressional and 1976 presidential elections. After blasting the Democrats, Zamyatin turned to inflation. He called it "a reflection of the capitalist way of production" and said the Nixon administra- tion's failure to solve it created "dissatisfaction" among Amer- icans. "Propaganda" Then he zeroed in on the American press and the "prop- aganda background" of the Wa- tergate issue. Mass information, the Tass director declared, was used to 'create tension around the President and that entire case." There- was a "definite empha- sis on the inter-party fight and an influence on public opinion against the President by radio and by he said. Zamyatin declared that the Democrat controlled house of representatives had pushed through a decree permitting na- tionwide coverage of the house judiciary committee proceedings on Watergate. "That fact demonstrates how strong were the emotions they wanted to build up over the Wa- tergate case, putting it, so to before U. S. he said. public opin- DES MOTIVES (UPI) Gov. Robert D.

Ford has requested a list of vice-presidential choices from all Republican governors by Wednesday. Ray said he has not received any formal notification from the GOP asking for his choices, but again stressed the impor- tance of selecting a present or former governor. Anderson: Nixon May Have Been Erasure Culprit WASHINGTON ist Jack Anderson says Water- gate prosecutors are investigat- ing the possibility that Richard Nixon may have erased the fa- mous segment from the tape of his White House conversation on June 20, 1972. The conversation was with then chief of staff H. R. Halde- man. Anderson said in an article Monday that sources close to the prosecutor's office describe the former President as a "key sus- pect" in their investigation, al- though they have developed no "solid evidence" that would in- criminate him. According to Haldeman's notes, the missing segment dealt with the Watergate breakin. A panel of experts has concluded ihe conversation was wiped off the tape by someone five stop-and-start Area Colleges Given By Foundation Three Cedar Rapids area col- leges have received more than during the last year from the Iowa College Foundation.
