Washington a White House lawyer James St. Clair today gave the House judiciary committee a partial transcript of a presidential conversation he said proved president Nixon was not aware of and did not approve paying hush Money to watergate defendants. St. Clair briefing newsmen after a closed door summation of his impeachment defense said the 2vfr-Page transcript was part of a tape of a March 22, 1973, conversation the committee had subpoenaed earlier but which Nixon had refused to provide. St. Clair said he gave it to the committee because former White House counsel John w. Dean Iii a testimony before the committee changed Deans earlier version of his hush Money conversation with Nixon. St. Clair said Dean in his Senate watergate committee testimony last year said he left the March 21, 1973, conversation with Nixon feeling the matter of payments to watergate burglar Howard Hunt was unresolved. But testifying before the judiciary committee last week St. Clair said Dean a indicated something had been St. Clair said the transcript he presented to the committee covered a conversation Between Nixon and his chief of staff . Haldeman Early in the morning of March 22. St. Clair said the excerpt he supplied to the committee quoted Nixon As saying blackmail would not be paid to the watergate defendants. A crucial part of the committees watergate evidence is that $75,000 was paid to Hunt the night of March 21, following Deans talk with Nixon. St. Clair was reminded at the briefing that Nixon has repeatedly told the committee it had the whole Story of watergate. In releasing edited transcripts two months ago Nixon said he had now made available the full watergate Story. Quot that does no to mean every single word Ever uttered a St. Clair said. A it was the full Story As we understood it to be at that he said Dean s testimony had changed the situation and led to Nixon a decision to release the portion of the March 22 tape covering Nixon and Haldeman stalk. St. Clair s summation was delivered to the committee after it had already received draft proposals of articles of impeachment. A working paper prepared by rep. Jack Brooks d-tex., for the committees consideration proposes seven articles charging Nixon with violations of the Constitution and the Laws of the United states. A draft of the articles was distributed privately by Brooks to democratic committee members. A copy was obtained by the associated press. Brooks major article is a charge that Nixon obstructed Justice by a series of actions that interfered with the investigation and prosecution of crimes involved in the watergate break in and a cover up and the burglary of the office of Daniel Ellsberg a doctor. St. Claire a summation aimed at establishing that Nixon was not involved in the watergate cover up or any other matters under investigation brought the committee to the final stage of its impeachment inquiry.

The Price the supermarket pays goes up to 25 cents and therefore the new shipment will sell for 30 cents.
