Charles Wright he wanted Nixon a tapes kept secret Austin Tex. Up a Charles Alan Wright the lawyer who Laboured to keep president Nixon a watergate tapes secret said saturday he Hopes there Are a adequate answers for Why two of them Are missing and another one marred. In an interview with up Wright said he has few regrets about the months he spent As Nixon a chief lawyer in the Long a one cannot yet say the patient has recovered j court Battle with watergate prosecutors Over the tapes a except that he never knew the materials he was fighting to protect were not intact. A what i regret As a matter of Public relations if anything else was that when i said on oct. 23 that we Ould comply with the subpoena that the White House did no to say that there w As a possibility that two of the tapes did no to exist a he said. Oct. 23 was the Day that Nixon after the juror that erupted from his firing of special prosecutor Archibald Cox three Days before abandoned the tapes Battle and dispatched Wright to court to pledge the president would a comply fully with a Cox subpoena Tor nine of his watergate tapes. On oct. 31, the White House announced two of the nine tapes did not exist. Quot if i had known i would have said it in court a Wright said.

A i have always endeavoured to avoid giving answers on political continued on Page 2 Nixon Strain trip example of How not to save fuel ii right i wished have known Washington u i president no xon would save Little if any fuel by taking the train to Florida because the extra presidential cars would Force Amtrak to run two trains instead of one. Deputy press Secretary Gerald Warren said last week that Nixon was considering going to key Biscayne dec. 26 by train instead of plane a to set an example for the american Public to conserve fuel. Although detailed plans have been made and the trip appears Likely White House officials said saturday that the president still had not decided definitely whether he will go by train. They indicated that Nixon has abandoned any idea of also sending his empty Jet to key Biscayne in Case of an emergency. An Amtrak spokesman said that because All the Florida trains Are filled to capacity at tins time of the year. Nixon will ride in a separate eight car second Section which will travel behind the regularly scheduled passenger train. The fuel saving also will be offset by some Security arrangements. Including the need for thousands of state and local policemen to drive to every switch Bridge overpass and Culvert to guard the president s train As it passes. At least three coach cars on the special Section will carry regular passengers according to the White House. The presidential party will use three or four a first class Quot cars a diner and a specially equipped communications car to keep the president in touch with the world during the 24-hour trip. The president s separate train will require its own diesel engines each of which Burns fuel at the rate of 1.5 to 2 Gallons per mile. Railroad sources say at least two diesel engines and possibly three would be needed to haul the presidential train. Assuming that each diesel unit Burns fuel at the minimum rate of 1.5 Gallons a mile the trip of 1.178 Miles from Washington to Miami using two engines would consume slightly More than 3,500 Gallons of diesel fuel. By comparison the presidential Jet Burns fuel at the rate of 2,000 Gallons per hour for the two hour trip to South Florida a a total of 4.000 Gallons. Thus if the special train Burns More than the minimum amount of fuel or if it requires More than two diesel units Nixon actually could Burn More fuel going by train than by plane. The president s decision to travel behind a regularly scheduled passenger train apparently eliminates the need for a a Pilot train a which according to Long standing policy must run ahead of every presidential train to Check for possible track continued on Page 2 Nader lawyer gets Nixon Dairy Industry tape on the inside Washington up a editorial Page.
