Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - October 18, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Television Today liy Jny Sharhutt Dan Rather's Nixon Book NEW Y011K (AP) "The Palace a tart, lively book about the Nixon White House, isn't exactly the kind of scholarly work !a liislory professor might write. Per- sonal opinions abound, fine print footnotes don't. The tone is in Ihe classic feisty manner of the Texas Observer. But the '1'exan who co-authored it insists it wasn't written in that spirit. "I like to Hunk it's written in ils own laughed Dan Rather, the hard-nosed CBS -correspondent the net- work transferred from the White House beat to "CBS Re- porls" after Nixon resigned as President in August. "It's as close to the truth as we could jnake it without cutting the truth, that is, wa- tering it down what we attempted to 'say was, 'Here it is as best 1 could make it out.' Rather's collaborator was Gary Paul Gales, (a CBS newswriter. Since CBS bars leaves of absence, Rather said, Gates quit CBS to work full time bn Ihe project for six months, then was rehired by the network. Some of the book's observa- tions are funny, such as its portrait of economic adviser Arthur Burns: "His ample thatch W pewter-gray hair was precisely parted down the mid- dle, as though to indulge the slightest deviation might make him look raffish." But some asides are acid, to wit, tlie end of a report on how strong-willed H. R. Halde- man, bested in a face-to-face dispute with strong-willed John Connally, later became a big booster of Connally for the vice-presidency in '1972: "In the 'classic bully pat- tern, Haldeman was the first to knuckle under when faced with a true show of strength." Might not such remarks, many of them aimed at Halde- man, cause teomc readers lo say, ah-hah, Rather really was out to get those folks? "Well, they'll just have lo jump up and lie re- plied. "For example, what is painted in the book is not on- ly the Haldeman I know but the llaldeniiin I think an awful lot of While House 'people knew. I wouldn't question for la moment that if Haldeman read Iho book he might very well say lo himself, or some- one else, 'There's nobody in that book that I recognize.' Rather said tlie book was begun in 1972 and handed to the publisher last June after two missed deadlines, both mainly caused by the long hours he spent covering changing Watergate develop- ments for CBS. He's gotten no flak from CBS officials about the book, nor have they barred him from appearing bn TV shows to discuss it, he said. But was it a factor in his transfer from tlie White House beat he'd 'covered more than eight years? he said. "It was to- tally unrelated, and I'm glad you asked. The decision was made before anybody at CBS had read the book. They're very good about Such things. I "What they say is, 'Listen, if you want to write a book, do it. We'd like to taiow about it, what the book subject that sort of thing. But our people are free to do that. "Now, obviously you have to live with the book. But they've I been awfully good about the whole thing. iNbbody even asked to read the book before it tame out." Economy Delays President's Pool WASHINGTON (AP) 1- Plans to build a new While House swimming pool for President Ford have been temporarily sidetracked because of tlie na- tion's economic problems, c a White House spokesman said Thursday. "The President asked I the American people to tighten their belts and avoid unnecesary ex- penditures and it doesn't seem the proper time to ask people to contribute lo a swimming said Press Secretary Ron Nessen.l Tlie White House had gone along with plans for a pool thai would have cost an estimatcc to be raised by a public fund-raising drive. Greeks To Protest Trip By Kissinger ATIIKNS (Al') University iludc'iits and other llrccks siiy they will take to the .streets in protest if Secretary of State Kissinger conies :to Athens as planned to mediate the Cyprus dispute. "We'll never Jet him make it into one student leader said Thursday. "The demonstrations .will surge be- tween downtown Athens nnd the airport." Student leaders in Salonica, the northern Greece home town of Premier Constantino Cara- manlis, said they will join their Athens colleagues if Kissinger comes. Other Athenians expressed si- milar sentiments. One shop- keeper said: "We'll give him a reception he'll never forget." Two men sipping coffee in a popular sidewalk cafe j were talking about the American diplomat. 'I'll be the first one to demonstale against him when one said as he looked at a newspaper report that Kissinger plans to call on Greek leaders late next month. No dale has been set, but Kis- singer is expected to come here after Nov. 17, when Greece holds its first general elections in almost 11 years. He will confer ,with the post- election foreign minister, and there is no guarantee that he will have a friendly recep- tion. The former foreign, min- ister, George Mavros, pub- licly has rejected Kissinger as a Inediator. Many Greeks believe the U.S. leaned heavily towards Turkey and made no visible attempt to stop Turkish forces from invad- ing the Mediterranean island July 20. President Ford's veto of con- gress' attempts to cut off arms shipments to Turkey for using U.S. arms in the invasion has not improved the altitude of the Greeks towards Washington.

Franklin National's failure was he largest bank collapse in the nation's history. The civil suit was brought Thursday in U.S. district court here following a five-month in- vestigation. Franklin New York filed a Bankruptcy petition Wednesday in the same court. The bank was declared insolvent on Oct. and the Federal Deposit Insur- ance Corp. was appointed re- ceiver.
