Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, June 28, 1973 Nixon list of 200 enemies Washington's neivest Asocial register' WASHINGTON (AP) Some call it Washington's newest Social Register, a list of nearly 200 of those who didn't get along with the Nixon administration. John Dean says the list came from White House files entitled opponents list and po- litical enemies project. The list and related memo- randa were turned over to the Senate Watergate committee Wednesday by Dean, fired two months ago as a White House lawyer. Former White House spe- cial counsel Charles Colson said the list was kept to in- sure that those named weren't invited to the Whit? House for dinner. Dean testified that targets were selected from the list by Colson and other White House officials, in keeping with a plan to "use the available fed- eral machinery to screw our political enemies.'' Dean said he drew up the plan in 1971, and submitted it to H.R. Haldeman. then presi- dential chief of staff and John Ehrlichman, then Nixon's do- mestic-affairs adviser He recommended a project co-ordinator who would "de- termine what sorts of deal- ings these individuals have with the federal government and how we can best screw grant availability, federal contracts, litigation, prosecution, etc.'1 PREPARED PAPER Dean also prepared ing paper for Haldeman for a meeting with John Walters, chief of the Internal Revenue Service He complained that, because of a "lack of guts and effort" on the part of the Republican appointees at IRS, tre White House had been unable to: audits of per- sons who should be IRS information ''regarding our political President Nixon's supporters in the IRS bureau- cracy; "crack down on the multitude of tax-exempt foun- dations that feed left-wing po- litical causes.'' Dean recommended that Walters "should be told that discreet political action and investigations are a firm re- quirement and responsibility on his part" ar.d that he should personal changes to make IRS respon- sive to the president.'1 A list cf 20 top priority tar- gets included: Guthman. national editor of The Los Angeles Times. "A highly sophis- ticated hatchetman against us in '68 It is time to give him the message." Woodcock, presi- dent of United Auto Workers. "No comments necessary." John Con- yers (Dem. Mich.) "Emerg- ing as a leading black anti- Nixon spokesman. Has known weakness for white females." Schorr, Columbia Broadcasting System, Wrash- ington. "A real media enemy." Newman, actor. caucuses NEWMAN PLEASED Asked for his reaction to being named on the list, New- man said: "I am sending Gordon Liddy to pick up my award. I would like to thank John Mit- chell, Jeb Magruder, John Dean and Maurice Stans for making this award The longer list of opponents was divided into various groups and subgroups. Under it named 10 Demo- cratic senators, six House cf Repiresenteiives members, "12 black congressmen" and three "miscellaneous politi- cos." There were 57 journalists and three newspapers listed under 10 celebrities, 21 53 in the business category, including 29 other "Business Executives Move for Vietnam Peace and New National 14 labor leaders and 18 organ- izations, most of which had one or more of their leaders named with them. Nixon veto upheld WASHINGTON (AP) Pres- ident Nixon vetoed legislation Wednesday to halt United States bombing in Cambodia, and the House of Representa- tives immediately sustained the veto. In a message from tne Cali- fornia White House, Nixon said the amendment to a supplemental appropria t i o n s bill would "cripple or destroy'' a negotiated settlement in Cambodia. An attempt by anti-war con- gressmen to override President Nixon's decision fell 35 votes short of the two-thirds required, with 241 votes to override and 173 against. 1 That killed the bill without its going on to the Senate be- cause both houses must over- ride a veto. The Senate promptly read- opted the anti-bombing amend- j ment as a rider to the bill rais- i ing Social Security benefits and extending the federal debt ceil- ing. The vote was 67 to 29. Acceptance of the amend- ment by the House is uncer- tain. In vetceing the appropria- tions bill, Nixon said he took the only "responsible course open to me." Watergate committee chair- man San Ervin (Dem. N.C.) looked over the list during the hearings and said, "I -can't forbear observing, when I consider the list of opponents, why the Democratic vote was so light in the general elec- tion. BETTER FIRST TIME Senator Howard Baker (Rep. the panel's vice- chairman, said in reply: "Mr. Chairman you told it bet- ter the first time. You leaned over to me, and you said, 'I think I'm going to demand a recount. Tnere are more enemies than we got votes.' Some other reactions from persons on the lists: Representative Bella Abzug CDzia. "I've got a little list too. But it's littler than his. It has only one name." John Kenneth Galbraith, Harvard University econo- mist: "I was delighted to learn that my name was a household word in the White House." Actress Carol Channing, batting her eyelashes: "I'm very proud because the list has people I consider fine people. I'm a Democrat. Chet Huntley, former tele- vision journalist: "I'll be damned if I know what it's all about.'' Law society to mediate disputes TORONTO (CP) The Law Society of Upper Canada an- nounced today it has set up a committee to mediate disputes between lawyers and dis- satisfied clients. The society, governing body of the members of the le- gal profession in Ontario, said the committee will hold hear- ings each month. Clients, who write com- plaining about a lawyer's han- dling of a case, can attend the hearings. The lawyer will be in- vited to attend, but will not be obligated to do so. The society said the com- mittee will "try to solve the problem or at least prevent it from worsening." The committee will concern itself with relatively minor complaints, those falling short of negligence or dishonesty. Negligent lawyers can be sued and all carry insurance which pays off if they lose a law suit. Dishonest lawyers are expelled from the profession, whose members pay about annually to the law society's Compensation fund which reim- burses victims for at least part of their losses. Indians own laiv system on reserves CHURCH MEMBERS There are more than 800.000 members of Presbyterian Church of Canada. REGINA (CP> What does the white man say each time he sentences an Indian to jail? Bob Chalifoux, who identified himself as a prisoner at the Prince Albert Penitentiary, an- swered his own question: "Well, there goes another In- dian that we won't have to worry about for some time." Mr. Chalifoux was address- ing the Canadian Congress of Criminology and Corrections Tuesday. He was let out of the prison temporarily to attend. Indians, he said, demand the right to have their own "law system" on the reserves. "By this we mean the power to be placed upon the counsel- lors to police the reserves and act as a judicial body. "Why? Because at present the unfortunate native is not being tried and sentenced fairly by the white man and his Mr. Chalifoux, a member of the native brotherhood, said that in most cases, the judges do not seem to have enough time and patience to deal fair- ly with native people. "If we had cur own judicial body on the reserves, we could help one another toward a bet- ter understanding of the law. "We don't think any of us na- tives want to go and spill our personal problems to a white man." Mr. Chalifoux said he and other native people are being trained at the regional commu- nity college in Prince Albert to be "courtworkers." Training includes public speaking, court procedures, le- gal subjects, interviewing and writing skills, among others. "Who can communicate and understand a native if not another he asked. There was no unity of opin- ion on the icserves, however. "Sure we know what some of our people say whenever one of us is sent away to jail. I've heard it so many times. In Cree, it's like this: 'Ka-Wa-We- Ya-Shoo.' English it means 'It serves him or her right.' "Is this the right attitude to- wards our own Melvin L. Akan, who identi- fied himself as a representative of the native brotherhood at the Prince Albert Penitentiary, said it is obvious that the pa- role system is not geared for native psople. Nevertheless, up to 5D per cent of all prisoners in the Prairie provinces were native people. Mr. Akan also said native people let out of prison on pa- role usually want to go home to their reserve where their fam- ily and friends live. "It is his home, yet he is en- couraged to take his parole to a strange and alien environ- ment where he doesn't know anyone and knowledge for sur- vival in the city just isn't in his personality. "If he still insists on going back to the reserve, his chances for parole are some- what decreased." In addition, he native people are hurt by the common practice of white men labelling all prisoners as alcoholics. A third difficulty was that upon release on parole, natives have difficulty communicating with their middle-class parole officers, he said. Mr. Akan recommended the use of natives and former prisoners as parole and proba- tion officers. Native people also should ba appointed to the pa- role board.
