Cover-up trial may drag on for long time By BRUCE LEVETT WASHINGTON (CP) The Watergate cover-up trial, scheduled to begin here Oct 1, is showing signs of developing into a long, drawn-out affair And contributing to the situation, other considerations aside, is the number and complexity of juror-challenge questions being suggested to Judge John Sirica Sirica, preparing to screen prospective jurors for bias, took the normal step of asking defence and prosecution for questions he might put to the panel He got 230 suggestions from John Ehrhchman alone Ehrhchman, former presidential adviser, is one of six defen dants And now. legal observers are saying, many of the questions themselves may have to be screened because they are difficult to follow and come close to seeking interpreta- tion of evidence before the trial begins Some routine Some of the questions have been fairly routine, such as this one from the Special Prosecutor's office, and likely will be accepted Do you have any reason to be prejudiced for or against any of the defendants or the government because the defen- dants once worked for a president of the United States or for the Committee to Re-E-elect the President the political organization m charge of the re-election campaign of Richard M Nixon to be president in 19727' Cumbersome, say legal experts but at least it can be answered with a simple "yes" or no Some others, however and this one by Ehrhchman is a case in point are more complex 'Do you feel that the use of covert activities in connec- tion with transfers of funds from a criminal defence fund for the payment of attorneys fees and for support of a defendant in a criminal case through the use of agents to carry money code names and code telephone calls from pay booths in- dicates illegal activity7 money9 'hush Complicated though it may be it touches on money" and goes to the heart of the cover-up Another example from the Ehrhchman proposals touches on another key facet of the situation how Nixon handled information he received about Watergate "Do you feel that the senior official at the White House is under any obligation to conduct an immediate and thorough investigation if he has basic scanty facts which might under one construction give rise to the belief that certain of his associates and friends are guilty of criminal misconduct but under another equally appropriate construction indicate that they were engaged in lawful campaign actmties9 As one observer put it 'If a conscientious juror asked for that question to be repeated he'd probably send the game into overtime Sirica has less than a week to sift and edit down the mountain of questions already received ana any more that mav come m before Oct 1 CHRISTMAS COLOR SPECIAL (Back in time for Christmas) Friday and Saturday September 27th and 28th ONLY Living Color only PORTRAIT "PIUS Handling Babies children adults groups i Special of each person smgiy onJy 88c 50c handling Groups S? 00 per person plus one 50tf handling Select from finished pictures in radiant black and white and Jiving color Bonus quality "GiwonJeed SoJisfochon."
