Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 'HE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wcdrwdoy, July 18, 1973 Confirmed bugging of presidents offices Butterfield steals Nixon's thunder at Watergate hearings WASHINGTON (AP) He came as a mystery witness to the Watergate hearings and then apologized for stealing the president's thunder. Alexander Porter Butteriield, head of the Federal Aviation Administration, was another name among those who once worked in the Nixon White House. Prior to his appearance, he had been interviewed rou- tinely by Senate Watergate committee staff members. That was Friday and at the time the investigators did not know whether the retired Air Force colonel was aware of what his former executive man- sion colleagues had been up to. But in that initial interview, Butterfield told the committee staff members that automatic recording devices had been tap- ing conversations in President Nixon's offices and on his tele- phones since the spring of 1971. The White House confirmed the existence of the tapes. The revelation came because one of the investigators said he had been curious about testi- mony by former White House counsel John Dean that Presi- dent Nixon once had spoken in hushed tones. Dean speculated that this conversation was being recorded. ASKED ABOUT TAPING Butterfield was asked if presi- dential conversations had been recorded. He said yes Butterfield said he assumed that H R Haldeman, former presidential chief of staff, and a Haldeman aide, Lawrence Higby, had told the committee staff about them. He said he thought he was go- ing to be asked to corroborate their tones. Committee counsel Samuel Dash said Haldeman and Higby were asked earlier about the possibility of tapes existing and Plan air link MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet Union and China, feuding Com- munist giants, have agreed to set up direct air service be- tween Moscow and Peking. The Soviet news agency Tass says a protocol has been signed under which the two countries will begin regular direct flights on Soviet built IL62 jets. No date was given. that neither came forward with the information. But Dash said he didn't know if the answers to the broad questions were false or only misleading. Committee sources said that after Butterfield disclosed the tapes' existence he was upset because he had not meant to part with sensitive information that the White House might wish to reveal in its own time. The unexpected piece in the Watergate puzzle was kept se- cret until Monday, wber But- terfield testified the devices were installed with Nixon's con- currence. SUPPORTS NIXON Before finishing his testi- mony, Butterfield told the com- mittee, "I believe, cf course, the president is innoosnt." Then he apologized for giving the information and for possiblp stealing thunder Nixon could use in his own defence. Butterfield had never Nixon before White House, brought him met coming to the His work in almost there daly contact with the president. At the White House, But- terfiald took notes on presiden- tial filed presi- dential papers and saw to the smooth running of Nixon's daily schedule.
