Spain became a republic for a few years and the Borbons began a struggle for the rights to an inaccessible throne. Juan Carlos was born in Rome on Jan. the son of Don de Borbon y exiled count of Barcelona and third son of Alfonso XIII. Alfonso's first son died in Miami after an auto and the second Don Duke of was a deaf mute who renounced his rights in favor of Don Juan. In Don Juan called on his countrymen to get rid of but the appeal failed. When Franco eventually began considering how Spain would be ruled after his moves were made in the royal direction. In 1954 the general met with Don Juan and they agreed that Juan Carlos should complete his education in Spain better to serve his fatherland in view of the position he occupies in the Juan Carlos attended Spain's naval and air and was commissioned in all three branches Under the supervision of private tutors he attended Madrid University. In 1962 he married Princess daughter of Greece's King Paul. Juan Carlos thus became the brother in law of King who lost the Oeek throne after the 1967 Athens coup. The brothers in law became good discussed the elusiveness of office and practiced karate. Juan Carlos was more interested in sports than in intellectual and has become an accomplished water skier and Olympic yachtsman. When Juan Carlos was first mentioned as the possible future his father am a spectator in the and assume no responsibility in this And for many years Juan Carlos deferred to him. When Franco ignored the father and chose the Juan Carlos fell into his role warily. As royal claims Don Juan had the stronger one. But Franco had the power and wrote the rules. When floods hit the city of Juan Carlos asked the housing minister if he could tour the he was told to and the minister went instead. When a Spanish saint was to be canonized in Juan Carlos wanted to the foreign minister went instead. Franco did encourage Juan Carlos to visit one Madrid ministry after to get a sense of what the government was about. At his investiture in Juan Carlos was allowed to say that the past should not be a brake on the and visitors to the Zarzuela outside heard him hint of democratic inclinations. But many Spaniards regarded him as a melancholy figure with little character and less lacking in wit and drive.

By WILLIAM V. SHANNON New York Times Service WASHINGTON Defenders of President Nixon repeatedly argue that his enemies are trying to drive him from office for offenses no worse than those committed by one or another of his recent predecessors. Commentary The fundamental answer to this argument is that Nixon has committed improper and illegal deeds so far as is no previous president was guilty of. But rather than rehearse the now familiar litany of let us consider the more difficult and ambiguous implications of this pro Nixon argument. Let us compare what he has done in the areas of financial corruption and abuse of presidential power with the record of his three immediate Presidents Kennedy and Johnson. Eisenhower may have inadvertently set Nixon a bad example during his own White House tenure Eisenhower not only golfed and played bridge with rich businessmen but also accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars in expensive gifts from them. Two of them took over the running of his Gettysburg farm and absorbed all of the losses. according to a recent even allowed a wealthy acquaintance to pay for his entire civilian wardrobe when he left the army in 1948. He also received an enormous though legal tax break before he became president when internal revenue agreed to treat the payment for his wartime memoirs as capital gains rather than straight income. But while in the White Eisenhower did not do any of the things of which Nixon now stands accused. Ke did not take dubious and possibly fraudulent deductions in order to underpay his income did not convert campaign contributions to his own and did not charge the taxpayers for improvements to his own property. born to was mostly indifferent to it. If he misused power to his personal it was in the appointment of his brother as attorney thereby violating a 170 year tradition against presidential nepotism. Robert Kennedy was an outstanding attorney but no personal merits could justify or offset the damage that his appointment inflicted upon a highly desirable tradition. Lyndon Johnson made himself a rich man while in Congress by obtaining radio and television franchises. He also showed through his association with Bobby Baker and others that he knew a good deal about the seamy side of politics. None of this went unnoticed in the press at the time. Because of his vulnerability on this very evidence suggests that Johnson was extremely careful once he became president to make certain that no financial scandals marred his White House record. Partly for that he chose as his successive attorneys general two men Nicholas Katzenbach and Ramsay Clark who had spotless reputations and who had nothing to do with his own past career in politics. Johnson would never have called up either of his attorneys general and commanded that an antitrust suit be dropped. Nixon not only made such a reckless intervention in the ITT but then compounded that mistake by allowing Richard G. Kleindienst to perjure himself before the Senate Judiciary Committee in order to conceal that presidential order. I can think of no other president who would have DON'T GIVE US A VACATION SiippIlM PRAIRIE DITCHING COMPANY embarked on so dangerous a course of and Nixon did it almost casually. Eisenhower used the Central Intelligence Agency to overthrow legal governments in Iran and Guatemala. Kennedy used it in an unsuccessful attempt to overthrow the government of Cuba These CIA interventions were a stretching of the presidential power in a way that the constitution did not contemplate. Johnson stretched it even further by conducting a sizable war in Vietnam without ever getting really adequate legal authority from Congress Nixon perpetuated that abuse of authority in Vietnam. he invaded Cambodia without the approval of later bombed it without even the knowledge of most of and permitted the bombing to be covered up by the falsification of air force records. Is this not comparable to but significantly worse than the Bay of Pigs in its and the extent of the Eisenhower had no interest in wiretapping. Kennedy and Johnson were aware that the FBI did some domestic wiretapping of dubious legality and did not put a stop to it. so far as is neither of them did anything remotely comparable to what Nixon has done in wiretapping and political espionage. He had the FBI wiretap his own hired two ex policemen to dig up on his political and set up his o n counterintelligence group in the White House to fabricate conduct and destroy the reputations of private citizens Other recent presidents have made mistakes and sometimes exceeded their authority.
