Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Profiles in courage or n cyncsm WASHINGTON There arc perhaps beroes in the Water- gate scandal who will remain forever mysterious, or moot They range from men Eke James McCord whose motives are questionable, to men in the Federal Bureau of Investiga- tion who may always be anon- ymous, though important, foot- notes in history. LEAKED FBI men leaked information Including that about the close political and unethical ties be- tween the White House and for- mer acting director L. Patrick Gray, a relationship which reached its nadir when Gray MASTERS AND JOHNSON: WHY WORKING AT SEX DOESN'T WORK Real and lasting sexual plea- sure can only be achieved by couples who are free to .cover their own unique way of expressing wishes, desires and needs.

Some FBI men, brought up on the axioms of fidelity, brav- ery and keeping one's trap shut, were shaken by this butcher- ing of separation of powers. Some, probably in the domes- tic intelligence division, were also appalled by the illegal bug- ging and espionage going on under WMte House auspices. An underground network was formed between these men and some members of the media, including and specially the Washington Post and Jark An- derson. CAREER RISK These informants did risk their careers and their reputa- tions in getting this informa- tion out. Yet their motives are not entirely clear. Perhaps they were torn within themselves and finally responded to a "higher one in which they put their principles above the letter of the law. These men did, in fact, break both a federal regulation and a bureau regulation against leaking In- formation. Perhaps, though, they not appreciate Gray, who, besides his budding to WMte House dictates, also fired or demoted old-time FBI stalwarts, radical- ly began reshaping the FBI image by approving the wear- ing of colored shirts and long hair and hiring women as field agents. The motives of James Mc- Cord, also an informer in Watergate but a much more vis- ible one than the FBI men, are in question. j Did he give lengthy testi- mony solely in hopes of receiv- THE FINEST RETIREMENT AND RECREATIONAL COMMUNITY Blind Boy.

HERO Daniel Ellsberg believes the latter. Ellsberg, the defense de- partment consultant who gave the Pentagon Papers to The New York Times, is consider- ed an ideological hero by some in this country because of his willingness to go to jail for a larger interest that is, re- vealing to the nation through those documents the lies and deceptions of the Kennedy and Johnson administrations relat- ing to the Vietnam War. To President Nixon, however, Ellsberg is hardly a hero, "We have to stop making heroes out of those who steal secrets and publish them in he said recently. "I said Ellsberg who attended the early E.-f 3 committee hearings in which McCord testified, "that McCord is an honest man I recog- nize my own past in him. I, like McCord, spent all my pro- fessional life under the belief that the president's word was the law. At a certain point in roy life, I discovered that that was a mistake." McCord's career has irssn one of federal service: 19 years in the Central Intelligence Agency and four as an FBI agent. He is also a retired air force colonel.

He broke the case wide open. "I felt a sense of injustice about the whole said McCord. A man like G. Gordon Liddy, convicted as the ringleader of the bugging group, is, unlike %IcCord, remaining mum as he begins to serve a minimum six- -year, eight-month prison sen- tence. "In wrote Stewart Alscp, in a recent issue of Newsweek, "G. Gordon would have been festooned with decorations rather than slap- ped into jail. As so often in wartime, his stubborn silence did no good." Another who began work in the administration with lofty idealism and then grew disen- chanted with internal opera- tions quit in silent protest. He is Hugh W. Sloan Jr. He resigned abruptly as trea- surer of the Committee to Be- elect the President last July, less than a month after the Watergate arrests. According to Sloan he was approached by Jeb Stuart Magruder and Fred LaRue, two high-rank- ing campaign officers, and ask- ed to give false testimony be- fore a federal grand jury. "I didn't want to be a party to said Sloan, in a recent interview. "I have a clear con- science personally, I believe I did the right things but I feel lousy-" He reflected on the past five years in the White House "There was no independent sense of morality there. I mean, if you worked for some- one, he was God and whatever the orders were, you did it It was all so narrow, so closed.' DISTURBED The ugly uncoverings of Wa- tergate disturbed others. Barry Goldwater, senator from Ari- zona and previously a staunch supporter of Nixon's, was the first Republican to appeal to the President to come out in the open on the Watergate mat- ;er and clear the air. He doubted the veracity of some of the President's state- ments. have to think he knew this coverup a good deal before his April 30 At the time, it was a courage- ous thing for a partisan ssna- ;or to say. There were others after the :ruth, and others taking risks. Such as the prosecutor in Flor- ida, a Nixon appointee, who went after Donald Segretti. fhe prosecutor risked his job. And certain elements of the still being maligned by ;he administration, continued to energetically dig toward the bottom of what some.lmes seems a bottomless pit. This of course includes The Washington Post, particularly their young local crime report- ers, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein (known in the city room as either or "The Katzenjammer There was Walter Cronkite who devoted two 15-minute seg- ments to the importance of Wa- tergate during the presidential campaign. A gutsy thing to do because (a) it was not really so power- ful an issue back then and (b) Cronkite and the Columbia Broadcasting System predict- ably incurred the wrath of the administration during the next several months and was branded "shabby" and that sponsitole." Judge Sirica believes much of the political of Watergate and other scan- dals on local levels would dim- inish if citizens took greater in- terest in government asking more questions, being mow aware of their candidates, vot- ing for the best people avail- able.

Kennedy, who wrote in his book, "Fro- files in "To be courageous re- quires no exceptional qualifi- cations, no magic formula, no special combination of time, place and circumstance. It is an opportunity that sooner or later is presented to us all. Pol- itics nsrely furnishes one arena which imposes special tests of courage. "In whatever arena of life one may meet the challenge of courage, whatever may be the sacrifices he faces if he follows his conscience the loss of his frisnds, his fortune, his con- tentment, even the esteem of his fellow man each man must decide for himself the course he will follow Each man must look into his own soul."
