Log rolling, sawing contests and high-flying tree climb feature the annual woodsmen's carnival. Never-ending thrills for 40,000 spectators, who see some splashes, bouts with fatigue and precipitous plunges from tall trees. One competition involves two men on a log on the water, and the men are walking (rolling the log) and trying to maintain balance while throwing the opponent's balance off. Informal crowd sitting on the ground applauds. Nice unusual view, high angle POV of tree climber from above him on the tree/pole. Dangerous stunt -- tree climber essentially plummets to the ground without braking himself against the tree, so he can win. Establishing shot - Two lumber jack standing on a log, one on each side, in the water, rolling the log. As it turns out, the both of them go into the drink. MS - Spectators applauding. MS - Eddie is meeting Brother Jim, Brother Jim goes into the drink and Eddie Heiren is the new champion of log rolling. MS - Wood sawing contest. MS - The tree climb, 100 feet to the top. Flag drops and down they come, and Melcome Harper wins the tree climbing event.

[01.08.23-INOUYE continues to confront DEAN with the WHITE HOUSE MEMO accusing DEAN of masterminding the coverup] Senator INOUYE. [QUOTING W.H. MEMO ATTACKING DEAN'S TESTIMONY] "On March 30, the President relieved Dean of any further responsibility for the Watergate investigation. He called Ehrlichman in, told him that it was evident to the President that 'Dean was in the thing up to his eyebrows and assigned Ehrlichman to look into Watergate." This is from Mr. Ehrlichman. "The President indicated to Ehrlichman that, his conversations with Dean throughout the, preceding month had given him an awareness of Dean's personal involvement in this.' Relieved of his Watergate duties by the President and aware, that"--- [01.09.07] Mr. DEAN. Senator, I might just note at this point and call it to the attention of the record, that Mr. Ehrlichman also resigned from the White House on the, same day that my resignation was requested, and Mr. Haldeman as well. Senator INOUYE. [QUOTING FROM W.H. MEMO ATTACKING DEAN'S TESTIMONY] "Relieved of his Watergate duties by the President and aware that his own complicity had become obvious', Dean decided to strike out on his won to hunt for immunity for the long list of wrongs he had committed. According to the President, it was, April 2 when he first established contact with the prosecutors and attempted to bargain for immunity. While he carried on these negotiations, Ehrlichman completed his report and advised the President on April 14 that Mitchell, Magruder, and Dean were, all involved." [01.10.01] Mr. DEAN. I would like to comment on that. As I have testified, Mr. Ehrlichman told me after he had returned from San Clemente back to Washington, I met with him on the afternoon, late, afternoon of the 8th and had periodic meetings with him during the week of the 8th to the 14th. It was on the 14th that he told me that, he had talked with Kleindienst and that the grand jury was doing nothing. He was particularly asking me when I was likely to appear before the grand jury. I was already, per the instructions of my own counsel, limiting conversations with Mr. Haldeman and Mr. Ehrlichman about testimonial areas. But it was that day that I drew up the list which I wanted to get the message very clear to Mr. Haldeman and Mr. Ehrlichman that they had very serious problems. It was on the, as a result of that, list that the Attorney General suddenly received a call, because I informed him that my counsel had been in direct communication with the prosecutors and the prosecutors had indicated that indeed, Mr. Haldeman and Mr. Ehrlichman were potential targets of the grand jury. At 1 o'clock that night, I realized that they had gotten the Attorney General late at night to get a briefing from the prosecutors and that is when things really started moving. That is when the activities began to occur. [01.11.41] Senator INOUYE. "On the 16th, Dean was asked by the President, to resign, but refused to do so. On the 30th, he was dismissed. His increasingly shrill efforts since, that date to, save himself by striking out recklessly at others are, too familiar and too painful to require Mention." This ends the memorandum. [01.12.06] Mr. DEAN. I would only add to that, Senator, that I think that if anyone has been on the receiving end of adverse publicity. it has been this witness; and not any of the other witnesses and I have not dealt in personalities, nor will I deal in personalities at any time during these hearings. Senator INOUYE. Mr. Chairman, that ends the memorandum. I have several questions were submitted by the office Of the counsel for the, President, with a closing statement. Knowing the lateness of the time, May I request that, I be Permitted to continue the interrogation tomorrow, sir? Senator ERVIN. Yes, think the Chair should state, however, for the information of all Concerned, that that the article which you have been reading to the witness and the witness has been testifying about is an article which the committee has received from Mr. Fred Buzhardt, counsel to the President. Mr. DEAN-. I understand. Senator ERVIN. And not the testimony of a witness. Senator MONTOYA. Mr. Chairman, I would like to ask--- [01.13.17] d

[00.45.27-GURNEY continues to try to discredit DEAN'S testimony by challenging him on his use of campaign cash that was entrusted to him] Senator GURNEY. Did you use all Of it for personal expenses? Mr. DEAN. Well. I did pay for some travel. I did pay for some expenses in Florida, out of it'. I have not sat down and tried to reconstruct, every expenditure. It might be possible for me. to do so. I don't know in dealing with cash but I bought everything form from groceries and just used it personally. Senator GURNEY. I wonder if you would try to do that for the committee, reconstruct how you spent it. Mr. DEAN. Certainly. Senator GURNEY. Why didn't, you replace it shortly after this time? Mr. DEAN. Well, at one, point I did put in, back in what I had into the account and in November when I was trying again to get a honeymoon I took it back out again. Senator GURNEY. How much? Mr. DEAN. Senator, I have no idea. I commingled it with other money of mine and put back in and taken back out. Senator GURNEY. Do you recall how much you put, back in? Mr. DEAN. NO, sir; I do not. Senator GURNEY. You don't recall how much you took back out? Mr. DEAN. I do not at this point. I could--as I say I will try to reconstruct that for the committee. Senator GURNEY. Did you do it at -any other time? Mr. DEAN. No. Senator GURNEY. Put in and take out? Mr. DEAN. Not to my recollection, no. Senator GURNEY. Only the one time following the original? [00.46.47] Do you know this is a crime, Mr. Dean? Mr. DEAN. I am not aware what crime it is, no. Senator GURNEY. Isn't it, embezzlement? Mr. DEAN. Well, I had very clearly made, there was no intention on my part never to account for the full amount. I had understood later that by the time I had taken it out it was moneys that had come over from the 1968 primaries, and I knew at some point in time there were many people aware of the fact that I had custody of the money, that I was to -account, for $15,200 and I was perfectly willing, able and capable of accounting for that full amount. Senator GURNEY. Did anybody know you had ever taken the money out? Mr. DEAN. Not to my knowledge, no. Senator GURNEY. Did you tell anybody? Mr. DEAN. No;' I did not. Senator GURNEY. When did you tell somebody about, handling this money? Mr. DEAN. When I went to the Government, when I first began talking to the prosecutors I explained it to them. I told my lawyer about it also when I retained counsel. Senator GURNEY. When was that and who? Mr. DEAN. I retained -Mr. Shaffer on March 30 and I don't recall exactly when we got, around to that. We spent most of the time getting Out my explanation of the, facts and then we started getting down into details and at, that point in time I told him I had this getting money and I thought we ought to handle that also. Senator GURNEY. Was the check still in there at that time? Mr. DEAN. Yes; it was. Senator GURNEY. In other words, you never told anybody about this or really did anything about it until April when, of course, the whole Watergate thing was blowing? [00.48.29-DEAN counters GURNEY'S charges of embezzlement, although his answer is a bit self-serving] Mr. DEAN-. Well, I Will tell you, I thought, at one time I ought to stick cash back in there and I said that is the dishonest thing to do hi this regard, I have to come forward and explain that, I did make personal use of this money. Senator GURNEY. Where is the money now? Mr. SHAFFER. Excuse me. I would like to say as counsel for Mr. Dean, that, based upon the facts that have been discussed with Mr. Dean, if they are true. Mr. Gurney says that is embezzlement. I disagree with him, and I think there are enough lawyers in the room to know what embezzlement is, and I do not plan to take the time, now unless the Chair expressly asks me to make that definition, However. I think it is unfair to the record to have the situation in a demurrer posture and to conclude that on the facts that are recited by -Mr. Dean, if true, that that is embezzlement. Senator GURNEY. Well, we. might rephrase the, question this way. [Laughter.] Did it ever occur to you, 'Mr. Dean, that this might have, that you might have been committing some sort Of an offense or crime? Mr. DEAN. No, it did not because I felt I was always prepared to account for the money. [00.49.45]

The only other occasion I recall anybody else looking at the files is when Mr. Dick Moore who was Special Counsel to the President was instructed by Mr. Ehrlichman to prepare himself to deal with the leaking stories on the Segretti related matters and at that time Mr. Moore was given those documents to look at, and worked with those documents as they related to Segretti, Kalmbach, and Chapin, and Mr. Strachan.

Don't you think it -was a serious breach of faith to show these 302 files to other people., a breach of faith to Mr. Gray? Mr. DEAN. Yes. I think it can be interpreted that way, Senator GURNEY. Let's go to the matter of the Hunt material that was turned over to Mr. Gray. Now, as I understand it some material was turned over to the FBI but certain materials were held out; is that, correct? Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Senator GURNEY. What were they? [01.00.45-DEAN describes again picking incriminating materials out of HUNT'S safe, GURNEY missing the obvious point that the materials extracted incriminated HALDEMAN and EHRLICHMAN, not DEAN.] Mr. DEAN. Well, I tried in my statement to catalog what -I can recall that I saw amongst those. documents This was a combined effort to extract this material by Mr. Fielding and myself. Sometimes when Mr. Fielding was going through it he would make reference to something and at one point in time I decided we ought to extract all of these documents and put them in one place, and Mr. Fielding did that for me and put them in envelopes and they were subsequently stored in my safe until the time they were turned over to Mr. Gray. So I cannot--- Senator GURNEY. I thought you testified that you carried some of these around in the trunk of your car? Mr. DEAN. No, sir, that was not, those -were not documents. That was the briefcase that was found in Mr. Hunt's safe. That was a rather large, oh, like so. Senator GURNEY. Wasn't that, the material that was turned over to Gray? Mr. DEAN. No, sir, it was not. Senator GURNEY. What was turned over to Gray ? Mr. DEAN, Two envelopes containing sensitive political documents. Senator GURNEY. And what--that was turned over at a meeting in Mr. Ehrlichman's office, is that right? Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Senator GURNEY. And you were, present and Mr. Gray was present. [01.02.00-DEAN reminds GURNEY about his statement that the withholding of HUNT'S materials was at EHRLICHMAN'S urging] Mr. DEAN. That is correct. You will recall I had been instructed to "deep-six" and shred documents. I had to come up in my own mind with a persuasive argument for Mr. Ehrlichman as to why not to "deep-six" and destroy documents. I decided the best, way to persuade him was to tell him that there was a chance that the men who had drilled the safe had seen it, that the Secret Service agent who was present at the time of the drilling had seen it, that Mr. Fielding and Mr. Kehrli had been there and had seen it, and, of course, Mr. Fielding had gone, through all of the documents and for -all those people, to be, quizzed by the FBI would result in an awful lot of lying. Senator GURNEY. Was it, your suggestion to turn those papers over to Mr. Gray? Mr. DEAN, Yes, it was because I told Mr.--- Senator GURNEY. Why did you suggest this? Mr. DEAN. I told Mr. Ehrlichman that if I were ever asked I wanted to be able to testify that, I turned everything over to the FBI and subsequently when that came up and they were getting more Specific with that I told---- Senator GURNEY. What was the conversation in the office at the time the documents were turned over to Mr. Gray?, Mr. DEAN. Well I it was a very brief conversation and, as, I say, my encounter during that was very short. I had preceded Mr. Gray, as I recall the sequence, to Mr. Ehrlichman's office. Mr. Ehrlichman informed me he was going to meet with him and said, "Bring the documents over." I brought the documents over and laid them on a coffee table in Mr. Ehrlichman's office. Senator GURNEY. Didn't you and Ehrlichman agree to set up the meeting? Mr. DEAN. I have the impression Mr. Ehrlichman was going to Meet with Mr. Gray on something else. That it was not specifically on this subject. Senator GURNEY. I thought You said You suggested to Mr. Ehrlichman that you have a meeting with Gray to turn the documents over to him. Mr. DEAN. I suggested we turn them directly over to Mr. Gray, and Mr. Ehrlichman, and after I turned the rest, of the material over and I was still holding this I thought we ought to get the remainder over, called--that happened on a Thursday or Friday, over the weekend. I said--there is a delay here-and called Ehrlichman on Monday and he said, "I am meeting with Mr. Gray this evening, why don't you bring documents over then," something of that nature. Senator GURNEY. 'NOW then, what transpired when they were turned over? Mr. DEAN. As I said, I took the documents and had a very brief discussion with Ehrlichman. I laid them on the coffee table in Ehrlichman's office. Mr. Gray was called up from the reception area, came in and Mr. Ehrlichman made the initial--initially raised the matter----- [01.04.28-TAPE OUT]
