Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wvdnwday, February 20, 1974-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-11 Political 'amateurs' Mitchell, Stans pay high price Wholesale destruction of President Nixon's aides under way JOHN MITCHELL By PETER BUCKLEY WASHINGTON (CP) The current trial of two former Nixon cabinet officers, John Mitchell and Maurice Stans, marks one more step in the wholesale destruction of the political "amateurs" who sur- rounded Richard Nixon in his 1972 re-election campaign. Mitchell and Stans, whose trial on charges of perjury and obstructing justice opened Tuesday in New York, were the chief architects of the president's campaign and have already proved to be among its chief victims. Both were self-made men, welcomed into the Nixon cabi- net because their views meshed comfortably with the president's and their talents had helped assure his narrow victory over Hubert Humphrey in 1968. However when their trial it might last four to six are likely to find themselves poorer in reputation than before they met Richard Nixon. Mitchell has apparently lost his wife, the garrulous and high-strung Martha, and both men are reported to have been thoroughly shaken by the long- drawn-out process of accusation and investigation that has led up to the trial. COSTS MOUNT. Although they were independently wealthy before they entered their well-paid Cabinet jobs, the two face massive legal costs in preparing their defence at a time when their earnings are understood to be virtually non- existent. The fall from grace has been particularly harsh for Mitchell, once the symbol of law-and-order in the Nixon administration. A dour, pipe-smoking lawyer who dealt with municipal bonds in Nixon's former Wall Street law firm, the 60-year-old Mitchell was one of the president's most trusted confidants during the first 3Vz years of bis presi- dency. He left the job of attorney- general to head the president's re-election campaign and was joined by Maurice Stans, 65, a millionaire accountant who as commerce secretary had been the voice of the business com- munity in Nixon's first Cabinet and who became the campaign's chief fund-raiser. Like almost all the others who once wielded power and now face the possibility of im- prisonment John Ehrl- ichman, H R Haldeman, John Dean, Dwight two men on trial in New York have never been elected to public office.
