Nixon asked about Watergate eight times' WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Nixon asked eight times between September and March for complete reports on the Wa- tergate affair and never re- ceived satisfaction, his former top domestic adviser, John Ebr- lichman, testified today. Beginning a record-equalling fifth day of testimony to the Senate Watergate committee, Ehrlirihman said he was kept in the dark about Watergate plan- ning sessions until April. But he said he notified the president of the meetings within an hour riter learning of them. Ehrlichman said, however, he did not notify the president about the break-in to the office of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist because "there was nothing the president could do about it or was called to do about it" As senators limited their questions in an effort to speed up tha lengthy proceedings, Senator Daniel Inouye (Dem. Hawaii) asked Ehrlichman if Nixon ever asked, prior to March of this year, for informa- tion of exactly how the Water- gate break-in of Democratic na- tional Headquarters June 17, 3972, came about. "Yes said Ehrlichman. "On repeated occasions the president asked that a complete and definitive statement of the whole Watergate matter, how it was planned, how it was exe- cuted, the whole picture be set down on paper and released." Q. Did the president ever re- ceive satisfaction? A. No sir. Ehrlichman said that April 15, assistant attorney-general Henry Peterssn, who was re- porting in detail to Nixon on the Watergate case, asked the pres- ident to fire Ehrlichman and Haldeman, White House chief of staff. "The president pressed him and Petersen conceded there was no legal basis, but to do it for appearances and not to fire said Ehrh'chman. Ehrlichman and Haldeman resigned April 30 and Dean wos fired the same day. Ehrlichman's fifth day of tes- timony equalled the committee record set by Dean. Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott said today President Nixon will maks a statement on Watergate within a week or 10 days after the Senate com- mittee ends the current phase of its hearings. Scott told reporters he would not rule out fhe possibility that Nixon would make his response at a news conference. The Pennsylvania Republican said he has made some recom- mendations to the president on a suitable forum but would not disclose those suggestions.
