Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - October 18, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Television Today By Jay Sharbutt Dan Rattler s Nixon Book NEW YOUK (AP) - ‘The Palace Guard”, a tart, lively book about the Nixon White House, isn’t exactly the kind of scholarly work la history professor might write. Personal opinions abound, fine print footnotes don’t. The tone is in the classic feisty manner of the Texas Observer. But the Texan who co-authored it insists it wasn’t written in that spirit. “I like to think it’s written in its own spirit,” laughed Dan Rather, the hard-nosed CBS correspondent the network transferred from the White House beat to ‘‘CBS Reports” after Nixon resigned as President in August. “It’s as close to the truth as we could make it without cutting the truth, that Is, watering it down . . . what we attempted to say was, ‘Here it is as best I could make it out.’ ” ♦ * * Rather’s collaborator was Gary Paul Gates, a CBS newswriter. Since CBS bars leaves of absence, Rather said, Gates quit CBS to work full time bn the project for six months, then was rehired by the network. Some of the book’s observations are funny, such as its portrait of economic adviser Arthur Bums: ‘‘His ample thatch bf pewter-gray hair was precisely parted down the middle, as though to indulge the slightest deviation might make him look raffish.” I But some asides are acid, to wit, the end of a report on how strong-willed H. R. Halde-man, bested in a face-to-face dispute with strong-willed John Coimally, later became a big booster of Connally for the vice-presidency in 1972: ' ‘‘In the classic bully pattern, Haldeman was the first to knuckle under when faced with a true show of strength.” ♦ * * Might not such remarks, many of them aimed at Haldeman, cause some readers to say, ah-hah, Rather really was out to get those folks? ' “Well, they’ll just have to jump up and down,” he replied. “For example, What is painted in the book is not only the Haldeman I know but the Haldeman I think an awful lot of White House ’people knew. I wouldn’t question for la moment that if Haldeman read the book he might very well say to himself, or someone else, ‘There’s nobody in that book that I recognize.’ ” Rather said the 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 developments for CBS. He’s gotten no flak from CBS officials about the book, nor have they barred him from appearing on TV shows to discuss it, he said. But was it a factor in his transfer from the White House beat he’d covered more than eight years? * * * “No,” he said. “It was totally 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 know about it, what the book subject is,’ 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 I awfully good about the whole thing. Nobody even asked to read the book before it came out.” Economy Delays President's Pool WASHINGTON (AP) !— Plans to build a new White House swimming pool for President Ford have been temporarily sidetracked because of the nation’s economic problems, a White House spokesman said Thursday. “The President asked the American people to tighten their belts and avoid unnecesary expenditures and it doesn’t seem the proper time to ask people to contribute to a swimming pool,” said Press Secretary Ron Nessen. The White House had gone along with plans for a pool that would have cost an estimated $300,000 to be raised by a public fund-raising drive. Greeks To Protest Trip By Kissinger ATHENS (AP) — University students and other Greeks say they will take to the streets in protest if Secretary of State Kissinger comes to Athens as planned to mediate the Cyprus dispute. “We’ll never let him make it Into town,” one student leader said Thursday. “The demonstrations will surge between downtown Athens nod the airport.” Student leaders in Salonga, tile northern Greece home town of Premier Constantine Cara-manlis, said they will join their Athens colleagues if Kissinger comes. Other Athenians expressed similar sentiments. One shopkeeper 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. “FII be the first one to demonstate against him when he arrives,” one said as he looked at a newspaper report that Kissinger plans to call on Greek leaders late next month. No date has been set, but Kissinger is expected to come here after Nov. 17, when Greece holds its first general elections in almost ll years. He will confer with the postelection foreign minister, and there is no guarantee that he will have a friendly reception. The former foreign minister, George Mavros, publicly has rejected Kissinger as a mediator. Many Greeks believe the U.S. leaned heavily towards Turkey and made no visible attempt to stop Turkish forces from invading the Mediterranean island July 20. President Ford’s veto of congress’ attempts to cut off arras shipments to Turkey for using U S. arms in the invasion has not improved the attitude of the Greeks towards Washington.

Iowa Cattlemen's Vice-President Raps Slaughter AMES (UPI) — The executive vice-president of the Iowa Cattlemen’s Assn. this week criticized what he termed the “wasteful” slaughter of calves in Wisconsin. Saying the association does not support Tuesday’s action, Larry Fallen said, “Nothing positive can be gained by the wasteful slaughter of I calves. Farmers in Iowa, along with many city people, have been dismayed and angered over I smell unreasonable action.” i Farmers from the Curtiss and Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., areas killed more than 670 calves and dumped them into pits in a protest of economic problems facing farmers. Kallem said cattlemen and other farmers have justification to consider “drastic actions,” but added that most should be able to tell the difference between something that could help and a move that could cause further damage. a* Valenta’s TV *4* Vlrgnlon 2:08 2—THI* Week In NFL 4-Bible 8— Bewitched IO—Saint 2:30 Untamed World 3: I Roller Games Focal Point 4—Rawhide I—Honk Thompson IO—Film 3:38 7—Bobby Gc 8—jimmy D IO Lost In Si oldsboro , _    .    Jean IO—Lost In Spgct 4:88 9—Wide World Of SptS. 2—Movie— “Hold that Ghost" 7—Porter Wagoner . 3—Wide World of SptS. 4-Wild Wild West 8-Nashville Music 12—Villa Alegre 4:30 /—Wrestling « gabby Goldsboro onlel Boone I 12- 5:88 soma Street Philippine Sugar Price Increase By Associated Press The Philippines a n n o u need Friday that it hiked sugar prices 51 percent, and one Manila supermarket said out its sugar supply in less than 30 minutes.
