Wednevdey, May LETHBRIDGE Colson would have walked over grandmother for Nixon By CHRISTOPHER LYDON New York Times Service WASHINGTON In President Nixon's old inner circle, Charles Wendell Colson stood out for his capacity to inspire passionate distaste and enjoy it. Democrats loathed him for playing rough politics and even more for being successful at it, as he was in his campaign to win over hard hats, teamsters, Roman Catholics and ethnics for the president during the 1972 re-election campaign. Many Republicans, and some of his old colleagues on the White House staff, abhorred him even more. Herbert G. Klein, formerly the White House director of communications, for example, called Colson a "cobra." Sen. Lowell P. Weicker, complained a year ago that Colson was spreading rumors about him. "You make me the senator shouted when Colson tried to explain, ordering him out of his office.

The line confirms his father's admiring description of his son as "viciously but it is only one of many proclamations of Colson's tough guy notion of politics as a form of warfare. A poster from the marine Corps, in which he served as a company commander, adorned his White House office Mrs Patty Colson says her husband's favorite tune is the Marine corps hymn To continue the military theme, the master list of more than 200 Nixon "enemies" was drafted in Colson's office, and the political staff that he gathered at a.m daily during the 1972 campaign was formally named the "attack group." Yet last year Colson seemed to have found Religion He related having undergone a religious conversion in which he found "a great ,'inner serenity, really a new life" through Christ. The turnabout was greeted by smiles from resident cynics. Because of his long friendship with E. Howard Hunt Jr., the former spy who pleaded guilty to involvement in the Watergate break in, Colson was once widely suspected as the Watergate master-spy But a secret affidavit by Hunt said that Colson had no advance knowledge of the break-in. Yet in a tape transcript released by the White House. Nixon is quoted as having said that Colson "is up to his navel" in the Watergate affair. After recommending Hunt fur the White House staff. Colson authorized him to investigate Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Later he sent Hunt, in a red wig disguise, to the Denver hospital bedside of Mrs. Dita Beard, lobbyist for the International Telephone and Telegraph Corporation, after Hunt's visit.
