Continued from Page i but after a Long pause he added a was a newspaper Reader and a poll watcher i would say Tho crisis has eased but one cannot yet say the patient has fully Wrights other regret is that he did not have More time to prepare the presidents Appeal of an order by . District court judge John j. Sirica that the White House comply with Cox a subpoena for the tapes. A your Brief to the court of civil appeals was seriously inadequate a he said. A a 95-Page Brief May not seem inadequate but what was not in the Brief was All of this in my he held out a stack of yellow Legal note paper 27 pages thick contain pm of typewritten single spaced notes. on judicial opinions and Legal precedents that were not he said. A i would have liked to have had time to do additional work on the Brief. Any additional time would have Wright complained that the appeals court allowed the presidents lawyers Only la Days to prepare the Brief and then took five weeks to decide the Case. A if we had a couple of More weeks we would have done a better Job a he said. The appeals court upheld Sirica on oct. 12, and Wright was in Dallas to attend the next Days Texas Oklahoma football game. The court allowed the White House lawyers a stay of five working Days to file an Appeal to the supreme court. A on the Day the stay would have expired we had gotten a Check ready for $100 for the filing fee a he said reaching for a copy of the neatly folded Legal document which represented the presidents last Appeal to the nations highest court. The deadline for filing was Friday oct. 19, at Midnight. A but from thursday afternoon on we All knew of the Stennis Wright denied reports that he suggested the presidents proposal to offer a summary of the watergate tapes to Cox and a Senate committee investigating the Ever widening scandal and allow sen. John Stennis d-miss., to listen to the tapes. The plan was concocted earlier that week but Wright said he first Learned of the Stennis proposal on thursday afternoon and he contacted Cox about it at the suggestion of then attorney general Elliott Richardson. A i called him that night a Wright i wrote him a letter and he responded with a letter to me. I wrote him another letter Friday afternoon but by then it was apparent to me that he would not accept the Wright said he never suggested the firing of Cox which Nixon ordered when the prosecutor refused to accept the Stennis proposal. He is Adamant that his role Al the tapes Case was one of a constitutional Law expert Only and not of a politician. With the subsequent decision to surrender the tapes Wright s role in the Case was All but Over. The constitutional Issue was no longer involved. He left Washington with the understanding that he would return if the Case were reopened by the Senate watergate committee. The rumours immediately began circulating that he had been fired or that he left in a Huff. One item even appeared in a Minnesota newspaper under the heading a the gossip column reporting that he was so disgusted with his role in the watergate Case that he vomited each morning As he got out of bed. A there is certainly no truth to the implication of that Story a Wright laughed. A i have no idea How they got hold of it. There was a week this fall when i was suffering from morning sickness but i can truthfully say there were no worries of watergate on my mind. Wright steadfastly refused to comment on the presidents attacks on the news Media. By the son of a Temple University journalism professor had some observations about the profession he Drew on his own. A i think its perfectly Clear that members of the Washington press corps Are not supporters of president Nixon a he and while trying to report objectively Many Are very obviously delighted when they find something damaging to the would Charles Alan Wright called a a superstar by his Law students and a constitutional a Genius Quot by Many of his colleagues like to sit on the highest court in the land a a in be denied that speculation for four years. I guess it would be worse to be president of the United states but i can to think of anything worse than being a Justice of the supreme court. A the confirmation process has become very degrading. The work Load is overbearing. Only by h e o i c management has the court managed to keep up with its docket. Capitol work fails fire regulation Sacramento up workmen sealing off the historic West Wing of the state Capitol have been ordered to Lay Down their tools after it was found legislative plans flunked a fire safety regulation. Construction was stopped Friday when Stateff ire marshal Albert e. Hole discovered that partially completed work did not provide for adequate fire exits. The legislature ordered the landmark portion of the building evacuated and sealed off because engineers have found it structurally unsound particularly in an earthquake. Only the legislative Chambers and the state treasurers office and vault will remain in use after Jan. I. And even then the Public will be barred. Nailing closed the passageways with sheetrock Between the old and new sections began last week. The fire marshal said the legislature was violating a state building regulation by not providing fire exits at the end of any corridor longer than 40 feet. Blocking off the old Wing under the Legislatures plan would leave one dead end corridor of 52 feet even after converting 56 feet into a Telephone lounge for lobbyists.
