Company Case Nixon Pal Spared Antitrust Inquiry By Nicholas Gage New York Times Writer NEW YORK Justice De officials overruled staff recommendations two I lyears ago for an investigation ofpricmg practices of the Pre cision Valve Corp owned by KRobert H Abplanalp the mul friend of Presi Nixon Rep Bertram L Podell Y said Sunday that he documents and memos demonstrate the birth land death of an antitrust against Precision IValve He said he would turn J the over to Archi bald Cox the special Water prosecutor and ask him make an immediate and t investigation of what to be a gross conflict interest between the Justice and the Precision Valve Unaware of Pressure Barry Grossman assistant of the evaluation section the Justice Departments the only de official involved in the case who would comment it said he was not aware any outside pressure to the investigation It was 3iot initiated because it could be justified he said Investigation of the Preci Ision Valve Corp which is 3based in

million On Dec 14 1970 Abplanalp created an investment compa ny and purchased all but 59 acres of the tract for The effort to initiate an in vestigation of Precisions pric ing policies began on April 29 1970 when Liam S Coonan then with the antitrust divi sions New York office wrote a memorandum requesting au thorization for an investigation to the head of the office Nor man H Seidler Complaint Filed Coonan acted following a complaint about Precision filed with the divisions office by one of its competi tors Seaquist Valve Co The Seaquist complaint asserted that precision had dominated the market in aero sol valves since the early 1950s In late 1969 the com plaint said Precision fore seeing a decline in its position because its patent was expir ing the following year rolled back its prices and instituted a rebate program Under the program Preci sion promised that if its sales increased in a given year by a factor between 10 percent and 100 percent it would give its customers rebates graduated between 25 percent and 125 percent of their total purchas es Possible Violation Coonan wrote in his memo randum that an analysis of Seaquists complaint indi cates that Precision which had 375 percent of the mar ket might be violating anti trust laws by engaging in a deliberate effort to gain the major customers of its com petitors and thus achieve monopoly powers On the other hand Coonan wrote Precisions pricing pro gram might only be a reaction to competition and would not violate any statues The only way to make a de termination he wrote was to obtain the companys records through a CID civil investiga tive a kind of sub poena issued by the Justice Department Coonans memorandum was forwarded to the antitrust di vision in Washington by Seid ler on June 19 1970 with a saying he concurred that the issuance of a CID was the way to proceed Copyright Tom Sawyers Home Fights For Life Against Mississippi Last April rowboats were needed to navigate main street of

heard most of the witnesses the Presi dent ought to make some sort of state ment He should go before the American people and subject himself to some sort of questioning If the President submits himself to a freeswinging press conference we can get the answers out he said This is what I would hope he would do As far asIm Presi dent is innocent until Ive seen some hard evidence that he is guilty and I havent seen one shred of evidence that he is guilty yet Senate Majority Whip Robert C Byrd DWVa said Nixons decision not to re lease the papers detracted from the Pres idents credibility and built up that of Dean The only thing he can do now is stop isolating himself from the public Byrd said on the CBSTV program Face the Nation I dont think the issuances of press releases or a televised appear ance Avifl convince the people Byrd said Nixons handling of public announcements in the Watergate affair impaired his credibility He has contributed to suspicion and doubts by giving a little bit of information at a that which is inevitable he said From time to time he has con descended to give a little more and a lit tle more by way of explanation The vari ations in his stories and the fact that he continues to isolate himself gives continu ing doubts to the veracity of his stories Burns who won the 1971 Pulitzer Prize for his political biography of Frank lin D Roosevelt teaches at Williams College in Massachusetts He said would recommend that President Nixon face the prospect of imp eachment with equanimity and use this perfectly good constitutional process to explain his case Unless there is some resolution it Watergate will cripple the rest of Nixons administration and have serious implications for the future of the presi dency he said I think its the worst crisis of the presidency America has ever seen The only recourse is impeachment proceedings Vermont Prison Rebellion Ends Guards Freed Find Answers On Alaskan Oil PRUDHOE BAY ALASKA DPI

sent to Washington to seek federal help got diverted to the Corps of Engineers for a study to update a 1964 survey of a flood wall for Hannibal Too Expensive But Mayor Bernard Wil liams said a flood
