John Dean key witness at impeachment inquiry Whoop Up Days Special July 12 and July 13 ig Fries Shake Special Dairy Queen brazier voo ADOPT A FAMTLX X MS. WILfiOO... JUST f C I I WASHINGTON John who once said his most difficult problem was I could end this mess without mortally wounding the faces questioning today in the impeachment proceedings he helped to initiate. It was Dean's Senate testi- mony a year ago linking Presi- dent Nixon with the Watergate cover-up that helped set the stage for the current inquiry by the House of Representatives judiciary committee. His testimony now has been requested by James St. Nixon's impeachment defence who wants to examine him on a payment he helped arrange for Watergate conspirator Howard Hunt. The former White House counsel played a leading role in all phases of the cover-up until 'lie decided to tell his story to the Watergate prosecutors in and he faces intensive questioning by committee members. Dean pleaded guilty last October to conspiracy to obstruct justice and defraud the United States. His sentencing has been deferred and he has been co-operating with the Watergate prosecutors. All St. Clair wants Dean to tell the committee is how he passed on Hunt's request for money to Frederick a former Nixon campaign aide who has testified that he deliv- ered to Hunt's lawyer the night of March 1973. St. Clair hopes Dean say he called LaRue that morning before a conversation with Nixon in which Hunt's money demands were discussed. A tape of that in which Nixon appears to be telling Dean Christ's get is regarded by St. Clair as the most damaging evidence against Nixon. St. Clair is trying to show that the payment was set in motion by Dean before he met with Nixon. LaRue's testimony on that point was unconvincing to most committee members. He said he thought he received Dean's call in. the but it might have been later. Former attorney-general John Mitchell testified Wednesday on the same point and again left members with mixed views. LaRue called Mitchell after hearing from and some members said Mitchell testified LaRue's call came before p.m. other members said Mitchell was hazy on the point.

Direct testimony and memos entered in evidence at the 11-day-old plumbers trial have said that Ehrlichman approved a covert operation on condition it not be traced to the White House. Ehrlichman conceded giving approval in the summer of 1971 but denied he ever contemplated anything illegal. Ehrlichman and three others are charged with violating the civil rights of the Dr. Lewis Fielding of Beverly whose office was broken into Sept. 1971. Ehrlichman also is charged with four counts of lying to the FBI and a federal grand jury. President Nixon and State Secretary Henry Kissinger both provided evidence for the defence Wednesday.

Members of the two unions walked out Wednesday in all but four of B.C.'s 22 pulp and paper mills to protest proposed tradesmen rates offered them last week. The pulp workers say the industry has shattered the traditional pay differential between them and IWA tradesmen. Pulp workers have been paid more in the past than the woodworking tradesmen.
