Becoming a real loner Watergate changing Nixon lifestyle By FRANCIS LEWINE WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Nixon, a loner before, seems even more atone since the Watergate scandals sepa- rated him from his two closest aides, H. R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman. White House insiders say C. G. (Bebe) Rebozo, a frequent Nixon companion, is the only friend they can recall having dined privately with the presi- dent at the executive mansion in recent months. Even the Nixon family circle at the White House is dwindl- ing. Tricia and Edward Cox have taken up residence in New York, Julie and David Eisen- hower live in a Bethesda, Md., house rented from Rebozo. Mrs. Nixon and Julie have de- scribed the Watergate as ago- nizing for the president and tragic for the families of Halde- man and Ehrlichman, who re- signed April 30. Nixon's isolation in office is often cited as a factor in some of his recent problems. In earlier, happier days of his presidency, Nixon expVined himself: 'I am a somewhat unusual man to be in political life, be- v (ST93 o e il rd Zip over to see your friends, down to the store, or head out into the clean country air!

I don't tend to be a first-namer, or basically, shall we say, too familiar. That is my nature. I tend to be somewhat formal." DEPENDS ON STAFF From the time he moved into the Oval Office, Nixon estab- lished a pattern of depending on his staff even for news reports. In his personal life as presi- dent, Nixon quickly demonstra- ted a desire for privacy, hidea- ways and frequent changes of scenery. In one 10-day period earlier this year, Nixon visited his re- treats at San Clement, Calif., on the Pacific Ocean, Key Bis- cayne, Fla., on the Atlantic and Camp David in the Catoctin Mountains of Maryland. He frequently goes from Key Bis- cayne to a friend's private island in the British Bahamas. In the White House he sought so long to win, Nixon is said to find the trappings of the famed Oval Office distracting and has established a smaller hideaway in the Executive Office building next door. Aides cannot recall Nixon ever working in his short- sleeves. His only concession to informality on the job is to wear a sports jacket occasion- ally. Once when there were reports that the president sported flared purple trousers at Camp David, Press Secretary Ronald Ziegler said: "Well, he wears sports clothes from time to time. I think 'flared' is a little exaggerated. Some of his slacks have cuffs on them. I mean he's a regular guy, he wears sports clothes." But purple? "I don't know about said Ziegler. "Some of his stocks are blue." LIKES MUSIC Nixon also retreats to the tiny Lincoln Sitting Room of the sec- ond-floor family quarters in the White House, where he often has a cozy in the warm listens to music, from stereo equipment stored in a closet. 'HBRKDGE HONDA CENTRE 1117 2nd Ave. S. Phone 327-8889 Thursdays and Fridays to 9 p.m. CLOSED MONDAYS Nixon recently explained his need for aloneness: "Great decisions, If they are to be good decisions, must be made coolly Of course, I like to hear everyone, but then I go off alone and deckle." Nixon removed one of the re- maining leisure facilities at the White House, the swimming pool. It was covered over to create a press room. He also eliminated the late president Eisenhower's golfing green Mtside the Oval Office. Nixon dines on a low-fat diet he says "keeps you in better mental does His weight is around 172 pounds now. AND COTTAGE CHEESE Recently he set the record straight about his reported taste for cottage cheese and ketchup. It's spiced up more often now with pineapple. One of his favorite simple din- ner dishes is reported to be baked breast of chicken with lemon juice, oregano and chopped parsley fresh from the White House garden. Nixon's habits are pretty well fixed and predictable. He has breakfast on a tray in his room, looking over briefing papers while he eats. Lunch is on a tray in his office, alone. He has dinner around p.m. usually with the family. Showing the family Quarters dining room to former Vietnam prisoners of war in May, a guide told them the president doesn't like to eat there because of the French wallpaper with American Revolution scenes that Jacqueline Kennedy had put on the walls. "He doss not like to eat look- ing at battle the White House guide said. STARTS AT 8 A.M. Nixon usually is in his office by 8 a.m. Though he is reported to get six daily newspapers. Nixon prefers his news from this over- night compilation provided un- der the supervision of a speechwriter Pat Buchanan. Aides say it sometimes runs 40 pages, divided into national, in- ternational and political new. with a "summarizing of the summary" too. Aides said Nixon spends 10 minutes to a half-hour reading the summaries. He makes mar- ginal comments as he reads, such as "WKat's fine story on or "Give me a report." The daily presidential chores require Nixon to sign innumer- able documents, as many as 75 a day. The president's handwriting is hard to read. He admits he flunked penmanship in Grade 2 and "never learned to write." HAIR IS GREYER About every 10 days, the pres- ident gets a haircut in the White House barber shop. His hair is greyer since he came to office, and since Watergate, daughter Julie says. Once when his motorcade bogged down in Chicago Loop traffic, Nixon hopped out and walked into a men's store. He splurged and bought eight neck- ties. Nixon usually doesn't carry any pocket money. His aide had to turn for financial help to ac- companying Secret Service agents to come up with about for the ties. Rose Woods, Nixon's longtime personal secretary, takes care of paying his bills. The presi- dent and his wife file a joint in- come tax return. LIKES THEATRE When Nixon gets a chance to relax, he likes theatre-gi'ng, restaurant-dining and Saturday night movies. He can command any films he wants and has seen several repeats of Patton. On a spring or summer eve- ning in Washington, Nixon likes to summon the navy yacht Sequoia for a Potomac River cruise. Nixon also likes long automo- bile rides on California free- ways or Florida causeways, usually joined by Rebozo. Nixon takes a drink now and then and takes pride in his mar- tini-making. He likes wines, top. But not champagne, he said recently, because he drank so much of it in toasts during his world travels as vice-president. Handicapped children deprived of learning By HENRY GOTTLIEB WASHINGTON (AP) In the United States, a country that tries to offer free education to everyone, 4.2 million mentally and physically handicapped chidlren are being deprived of learning because their schools are short of cash. Angela Coleman, a nine-year old, partially blind girl from Augusta, Ga., is grades behind in reading because her school can't afford special books with large type. Twenty-two educable but au- tistic children in the Tidewater area of Virginia were turned away from schools because the added costs of teaching them were too much for their com- munity to bear. The parents are trying to get federal courts to return their children to classes. The Senate committee on la- bor and public welfare says only 17 states are serving more than half their disabled chil- dren. One million disabled chil- dren aren't in schools of any kind. In 1971, seven states provided less than 20 per cent of their handicapped children with a suitable education and, the committee says, Arkansas of- fered an equal education to only 10 per cent of its disabled chil- dren. How well children are taught depends in part on the severity of their problems, the com- mittee says. The hardest to con- trol in classrooms are the emo- tionally disturbed children, and of these, only 13 cent were getting an education, the com- mittee adds. CRIPPLED LOSE OUT But of the crippled or prtho- pedically handicapped children in the U.S., whose minds are as sound as those of their peers, only 35 per cent are getting adequate training. Of the men- tally retarded who can be taught, 57 per cent are receiv' ing instruction, the committee says. "There are seven million handicapped children in the United said Senator Harrison Williams (Dem. N.J.) in a speech to the Senate. "Close to 60 per cent of these children are denied the educa- tional programs they need to have full equality of opportun- ity." The chief problem, he said, is a lack of money. "It's not always that the schools don't Williams said in a recent interview. "The problem is they have money problems and it costs a lot to give a disabled child the educa- tion be needs." The Senate committee says it costs about 80 per cent more to educate a handicapped child than a normal one. It estimates that it would cost between and more per pupil to properly educate handicapepd children in the U.S. That's billion more than is being spent now. Indian massacre trial conies 10 years later CUIABA, Brazil (AP) The massacre of seven Indians in Brazil's rugged Mato Grosso state is coming to trial 10 years after it happened. A jury is expected to try Ra- miro Costa for murder starting June 25, in connection with the 1963 bullet and machete slay- ings of a group of Cinta-larga Indians. Costa, 60, has been in jail since 1970 in Cuiaba, the Mato Grosso capital, suffering from malaria and rheumatism. Of five local rubber plantation hands charged wth the mas- sacre, he is the only one in cus- tody. "Justice will be said Judge Odiles Freitas de Souza, who will try the case. Asked why the matter took 10 years to come to trial, the judge ex- plained that the Mato Grosso court system always operated under "difficult conditions.' GAVE NO WARNING The prosecution says Costa and four other employees of rubber grower Antonio Masca- renhas Junqueira were sent to look for diamonds and tin ore on lands in far western Brazil that traditonally belong to the Cinta-largas. The indictment says they came upon a group of Indians building straw huts in the forest and without warning mowed them down with sub-ma- chine-guns and rifles. The state also charges that when the attackers discovered an Indian woman and her baby Trofanenko awarded for high mark PICTURE BUTTE (Special) At the recent Lethbridge Community College awards ban- quet, Lome Trofanenko of Turin was presented with a cheque, donated by Baalims Wholesale Ltd. This was awared to Lome for obtaining the highest mark in the mechanic's course. Last year he also had the highest mark on course in southern Alberta. hiding in the brush, they strung her legs up to a tree and chopped her in half with a machete. Then they shot the baby dead. Three of the men eventually indicated were killed in a fight on the Junqueira plantation a few years after the massacre. Another defendant escaped. Costa's lawyer is Renato D'amida Pimenta, a law pro- fessor and one of the most ex- pensive lawyers in the state. Costa told a reporter that rancher Junqueira is paying his legal expenses. Brazil has about In- dians in a total population of 100 million. The government says it wants to integrate In- dians into modern society and has enacted many laws seeking to protect them. But Indians usually wind up the losers in clashes with white men trying to open up this country's vast interior. Barbecue June 23 for Scouts PINCHER CREEK (Special) A barbecue is planned by the Grizzly District of the Boy Scouts of Canada for Saturday, June 23, at 6 p.m. The site is the Castle River Conpgrounds west of Pincher Station on the old Highway 3.
