[01.08.57-DEAN discusses further the PRESIDENT'S knowledge of WATERGATE and COVERUP] Mr. DEAN. And that would be a document which was forwarded to the President that I was just referring to. as we ended our conversation, and it is exhibit No. 34-36, for talking points for a meeting with the Attorney General. This was a request that I prepare this by Mr. Haldeman and send it not through normal channels for a meeting but rather directly to him because of the sensitivity Of the documents. [READING] Background, Kleindienst is biding his time until he returns to private law practice. He has discussed joining several law firms and has a particularly attractive offer from -one. that he would probably like to accept, Kleindienst is less than enthusiastic about helping to solve some of the tough problems relating to the forthcoming Watergate hearings, He does not want to get himself involved in any controversy at this time. The morale of the Department of Justice is low because they are extremely loyal to Kleindienst but they think the White House is trying to force him out. Kleindienst is extremely loyal to the President and will do anything asked of him by the President. [01.10.02] Kleindienst should be asked to remain in office at least one full year from this date, that is until after the Watergate hearings have passed because the hearings may well result in a request for additional action by the Department of Justice. We can't afford bitterness at the Justice Department nor can we risk a new Attorney General being able to handle some of the potential problems. Kleindienst should be asked to follow the hearings closely and keep us apprised of any potential problems from a Department -of Justice standpoint. Kleindienst should be given a feeling that he is an important member of the team and not merely because of these hearings is he being asked to stay on. [01.10.41] Senator BAKER. Of Course, Mr. Kleindienst did not stay on; is that right? Mr. DEAN. His resignation was accepted, I believe, on April 30. Senator BAKER. Just out of curiosity, is it your personal knowledge that Mr. Kleindienst's resignation was not requested but rather was tendered by Mr. Kleindienst? Mr. DEAN. That is my understanding. Senator BAKER. Go ahead, sir. [01.11.15] Mr. DEAN. The first meeting that 1 had after these series of documents were exchanged and I got, I was told of the results of the, meetings. in the first instance by Mr. Haldeman and subsequently by the President himself when I met with him, that meeting was on February 27 and it was at this meeting that the President asked me to report directly to him on all Watergate matters. There had been a great exchange of this type of memorandums back and forth into the President's office and out. He indicated to me at that time, that this was consuming a great deal of time of Mr. Haldeman and Mr. Ehrlichman, and that at that time he also indicated to me that they were principals and he felt that I could be more objective in this matter, [01.12.15-DEAN discusses a meeting with NIXON in which NIXON asked DEAN to report directly with him] We had, I think, a lengthy discussion about that this morning with one of the members of the panel. As I indicated, it was at this meeting that the President also repeated what had earlier been reported to me by Mr. Haldeman, about your meeting with the President, in which you had told the President that you suggested he waive executive privilege. He had told you that he was going to hold the line at written interrogatories and he asked me what did I think about that, and I said I certainly thought that written interrogatories could be handled. He also discussed the fact that he didn't want Mr. Haldeman and Mr. Ehrlichman to appear on the Hill. [01.13.08]

[01.13.08-DEAN discusses meeting with NIXON ] Senator BAKER. Incidentally, Mr. Dean, at that point, as we know, You are here without a claim of executive privilege, Mr. Haldeman, Mr. Dean--I mean Mr. Haldeman and Mr. Ehrlichman are under subpena and it is our understanding that they will appear without a Claim of executive privilege. Can you identify the Point at which this position at the White House was reversed and that those privileges indeed were waived? Mr. DEAN. I believe It was probably in late April, I don't know for certain, maybe it was May, maybe it was June, the position was evolving and, as I recall, as to the statements on executive privilege continued to change after, that certainly was after the April 30 resignation of Haldeman and Ehrlichman and my departure, from the, White House staff. Senator BAKER. Do you know who recommended the changed position? Mr. DEAN. I do not, I was not privy to the conversations at that point in time. Senator BAKER. But in any event, there is no claim now of executive privilege or of attorney-client privilege as far as you are concerned? Mr. DEAN. That is Correct. Senator BAKER. And as far as the other witnesses are concerned? Mr. DEAN. that is correct. [conferring with counsel.} Mr. DEAN. Counsel has just reminded me of something that at one point, in time we were going down to appear at a special Saturday session before the grand jury and the Friday night before, when we went to advise it with the prosecutors there was a sheet that had been handed out by the White House on executive privilege and at that point in April, So sometime in April, the latter half of the month, with executive privilege was still being claimed particularly vis-a-vis the grand Jury as well. Senator BAKER. There was a speech by the President. I believe on May 22 on this subject, but that is really not important to this query so we Will move on from there. I am anxious, in the moments we have remaining. for you to tell me about the information that you have, or what I call category 1, of direct knowledge of what the President knew and when he knew it. Mr. DEAN. That is right. [00.15.41-DEAN discusses NIXON'S knowledge at point of Feb. 27, 1973 meeting] It was on the meeting of the 27th that the President urged me to, he reported the fact that you had asked that your contact not be anybody at the White House but somebody, very specifically the Attorney General Mr. Kleindienst, and I was asked by the President then to' make sure that Kleindienst had in fact met with you, I had met with Kleindienst the preceding day as I recall in a general discussion and he had indicated to me he wanted to turn over the FBI--I don't think he, was aware at that point in time, well, he couldn't have been aware--he may have been aware at that point in time of the fact that you Were to be the, contact point for the hearings and he had not yet scheduled a meeting with you. I don't know what conversations he had had with you but he had said that he hadn't worked out a firm date to have these hearings that he was hoping to meet with both you and the chairman. Senator BAKER. Do You know, in fact, when he did meet with us? Mr. DEAN. No; I do not. Senator BAKER. But you do know that it was with Senator Ervin and me? Mr. DEAN. That was my understanding yes. That was his desire. Apparently, you indicated you wanted to meet with both, you thought it would most effective if the meeting was with both you and the chairman. That is what Mr. Kleindienst reported to me. Senator BAKER. Go ahead, Mr. Dean. Mr. DEAN. As I have also testified, there was some discussion of the composition of the committee. He felt that at that point in time, he hoped that the White House could receive some assistance from you. That is why he was hoping, urging me to have the Attorney General Work closely with you. We discussed Senator Gurney, as the President said, no one has to get in touch with him, he will do what is right. He felt very comfortable that that was our best friend on -the committee. Senator BAKER. Incidentally, one other thing, I noticed in one of the memos, one of the exhibits, that mention was made of Attorney General Kleindienst and of you as a possible communication point for committee affairs. Mr. DEAN. It was Wally Johnson or myself, I believe. Senator BAKER. Would you confirm that you and I have never discussed that? Mr. DEAN. Yes, sir, I would. Senator BAKER. Thank you. Go ahead, sir. Mr. DEAN. I might add that coming forward in the meeting at one point in the meeting on March 22, -when Mr. Mitchell was with the President, there was a call as a result of a staff inquiry from a member of your staff that said that, it is still seeking guidance and this report had come. to the President from Mr. Timmons. During the middle of the meeting, the President picked up the phone and tried to, or called the Attorney General and said, you know, get on up there and meet with Senator Baker and work these problems out.

[01.18.53-DEAN discusses meeting with NIXON, discussion of Executive Privilege and strategy to deal with ERVIN COMMITTEE investigation] At that meeting also, he, told me, he said, John, you should start having direct dealings with Senator Ervin and Senator Baker on the parameters of executive privilege. This was right in the middle of the, Gray hearings and I told the, President, I said I think that would be very unwise, Mr. President, because I am the point in controversy in the Gray hearings and I would be up there negotiating my own position, so to speak. Senator BAKER. I remember, too, at that, time, that the chairman was talking about arresting people at the White House gate. Mr. DEAN. That is correct, Senator BAKER, And the President was talking about having a lawsuit. Mr. DEAN. I also remember having a discussion with the Attorney General about this area and he told me, he said, we have more marshals than they have sergeants at arms and if we run out of marshals, your boss has 'got the Army. Senator BAKER.. Go ahead Mr. Dean. [01.20.04] Mr. DEAN. Now, there is something that occurred that was very similar to the, September 15 meeting after we had these discussions. On my way out of the office, he, again repeated to me that I had done an excellent job of dealing with the matter during the campaign, with the Watergate problem. He said that, it, had been the only issue, that the McGovern people had had, that the Democrats had tried to make a big issue out of it. I told him that I had only managed to contain the matter during the, campaign, and again, feeling that I did not know how long the coverup could go on, that this thing could go on indefinitely Senator BAKER. Did you use the, word "coverup"? Mr. DEAN. I used the word "contain". He said to me--I said, I am not sure it can be contained indefinitely [01.20.57] He then, I call recall this very vividly. He said, John, he said, I have got a lot of confidence in you. He said, you know, we have to keep just fighting back and fighting back, and I am sure. you can do it and I want you to report directly to me on all your problems and not bother Bob and John, referring to Haldeman and Ehrlichman. Senator BAKER. Did you feel at the, time that the President had confidence in you? Mr. DEAN. Did I feel? As I think I testified earlier, I thought that I had earned my stripes by that, time. so to speak. Somebody else classified it. I think Senator Montoya, as I had gotten my spurs, and I felt that he did: yes, sir. Senator BAKER. Mr. Dean, it. is now 4:45. I have, covered much territory and I have much more, that I have already mentioned to you that I would like to cover, but at this point, I would like to yield. Senator Talmadge has not returned, I understand that he has finished his interrogation for this round and the next, one would be Senator Weicker. [01.22.03] Senator WEICKER. Thank you very much, Mr. Chairman. Mr. Dean, Just a couple of preliminary questions before I get into the main thrust of questioning, And this asks for an opinion, admitted I admittedly so. but I would still like to hear it. On April 30, 1973, the President announced your resignation along with Messrs. Kleindienst, Haldeman, and Ehrlichman. And the President had some very warm things to say about Mr. Haldeman and Mr. Ehrlichman, not very much to say about you and only a very little to say about Mr. Kleindienst Would You care to opine as to why this particular treatment? Mr. DEAN. I do not want to offer an opinion; I will just say this, that given the fact that I was not playing ball. I was not surprised. And I might also add this, that I thought it was somewhat unfair to put Mr. Kleindienst's name, amongst the others that were leaving the White House staff at that time. I had a definite reaction to that. I thought that was unfair to Mr. Kleindienst who had, as I understood it, proffered his own resignation and then suddenly, was lumped with others who there had been a good deal of press speculation about being involved in the Watergate.

[01.23.51-Sen. WEICKER questioning DEAN] Senator WEICKER. Did you have any information that, Mr. Kleindienst had Indeed offered his resignation prior to this time? Mr. DEAN. No, I didn't. I read subsequently that he had proffered it. Senator WEICKER. The committee has received evidence, that a courier for Senator Muskie's campaign microfilmed documents which Were, typed by Sally Duncan, Bart Porter's secretary, and delivered by her to Gordon Strachan at the White House. This was in earlier testimony before this committee. Now, what do you know about the source of committee the list of Muskie Contributors, which list, you provided to the committee yesterday? Mr. DEAN. The only thing I know about that list is it was sent to me from Mr. Colson's office. Senator WEICKER. I see. Now, Mr. Dean, the line of questioning which I am going to follow is going to include you to some extent, it is going to include me to some extent. But one of the jobs that I think we, have is to preserve the opportunity for every individual to be. heard and heard. fairly when they come before this committee, whether it is you or any other witness, and to probe fairly, as has been the case by the members of this committee. Obviously, the seriousness of the matter before us also makes it imperative that the committee, itself and each member or the committee have credibility and be believed. [01.25.44] Now, our job, in other words as I look upon it here, is to get the facts, not to get the President, and -to have the United States or Americans feel exactly what it is that happened to their political system and, in fact what happened to their Constitution. [01.26.07] With that in mind, I now intend to review some of your testimony and to also review some of the things that have happened, Certainly, I and the, committee, the American people, have seen things that have been illegal. We have seen things that have been unconstitutional and we have seen-and heard those things which I can only categorize as gross. But to get to the issue of the credibility of witnesses, I first want to find out what your comments would be to the memorandum that was read to you by Senator Inouye. Except this time, what I am going to do is I am going to point out to you and to the American people the difference between the first memorandum that was sent to the committee, and the second memorandum that was sent to Senator Inouye. [01.27.00-WEICKER discusses the White House memorandums, and points out that the second one was much more stridently Anti-DEAN, appearing defensive] The first memorandum sent from Mr. Fred Buzhardt at the White House made the following statement: [READING] History fails to record that at that moment, Dean corrected the Attorney General's erroneous impression by pointing out that, however innocently, Mitchell, Magruder, and Dean had all been involved in planning of operations of which Watergate was an obvious derivative or that Strachan had knowledge of the fruits of this kind of operation or that all of them were suborning perjury and otherwise seeking to conceal the facts. Now, let me show you the key difference, between the first and the second versions. The first version here, "History fails to record that at that moment, Dean corrected the Attorney General's erroneous impression by pointing out that, however innocently, Mitchell, Magruder and Dean"--the memorandum which was read to you by Senator Inouye, which was the second memorandum to come from the White House, read as follows: "History fails to record that at the moment Dean corrected the Attorney General's erroneous impression by pointing out that Mitchell, Magruder, and Dean"--in other words, omitting, "however innocently". Now, to get to further aspects of the memorandum, the first memorandum stated: [READING] It is probably because of executive privilege it is not possible even to speculate on the extent to which Dean helped induce the view on attorney-client privilege." The second version of the memorandum read "It is probably that Dean helped induce the views on attorney-client privilege." Then again, in the first version of the memorandum given to this committee by Mr. Buzhardt and the White House, the statement was made in the first edition: "The President indicated to Ehrlichman that his conversations with Dean throughout the preceding month had given him a growing awareness of Dean's personal involvement and that his sending him to Camp David apparently was a device to Smoke him out." The second version that came from the White House reads as follows: "The President indicated to Ehrlichman that his conversations with Dean throughout the preceding month had given him a growing awareness of Dean's personal involvement in this." Then lastly--if you will be patient here for a minute--the first version: "Dean was not merely one of the architects of the coverup plan. He was also perhaps its most active participant." The second version from the White House: "Dean was not merely one of the architects of the coverup plan. He was also its most active participant." [01.30.49]

[01.30.49-WEICKER discusses the WHITE HOUSE reaction to DEAN'S testimony, noting that the White House freely implicates individuals in criminal acts to defend itself, the same charge it makes against DEAN.] I think it is important to point out, Mr. Chairman, to the committee the very substantial discrepancies in the two memorandums sent to this committee. But probably the greatest disservice performed by the White House in this instance comes on the following fact. Before I make my statement in regard to the entire memorandum I would like to read a quote from a Speech given by the Vice President of the United States not long ago, where he goes ahead and blasts this committee, in which speech he states: [01.31.32] "There is no question whatever that some men, despite their innocence, will be ruined by all of this, even though I am sure that the Senate intended nothing of this kind when it commissioned this investigation." I think. Mr. Chairman, the American people should know that the author of the White House memorandum read by Senator Inouye yesterday makes statements of facts concerning John Mitchell which, in effect, assume that he took part in a conspiracy to break and enter, that he took part in obstructing Justice and suborning perjury, and all this without an admission or conviction of John Mitchell. [01.32.26] And this, Mr. Chairman, done in the document sent by the White House to this committee. I don't believe that in anything that the committee has done to date we have overstepped our bounds, to this extent and I think it important to note, not only in the ease of Mr. Dean, who sits before us, but also in the case of Mr. Mitchell, who is to come before us. Now, Mr. Dean, I didn't mean to jump ahead of you. Have You any comment to make relative to this memorandum, and if so, I don't mean to cut you off on it. Mr. DEAN. When the memorandum was being read yesterday, as you Will recall, Senator. I commented point by point as they went through it. I will certainly stand on the comments I made yesterday and I certainly stand on my testimony. I refuse to engage in descriptions of Motives of others, myself. [01.33.28-Sen. WEICKER brings forth a long list of the excesses and illegalities of WHITE HOUSE actions] Senator WEICKER. Now, Mr. Chairman, as I have indicated there have been acts that have been illegal, unconstitutional, and those that fall in the general category of gross. And I would like to go ahead and repeat now exactly what acts which have been testified to, have actually been proven or admitted in the illegal area, acts committed by various members of the executive branch of government--conspiracy to obstruct justice, conspiracy to intercept wire or oral communications, subornation of perjury, Conspiracy to obstruct a criminal investigation, conspiracy to destroy evidence; conspiracy to file false sworn statements, conspiracy to commit breaking and entering, conspiracy to commit burglary, misprision of a felony, filing of false sworn statements, perjury, breaking and entering, burglary, interception of wire and oral communications, obstruction of criminal investigation, attempted interference with administration of the internal revenue laws, and attempted unauthorized use of internal revenue information. These are illegal matters proven or admitted that have been accomplished by the executive branch of this Government. [01.35.11-Sen. WEICKER discusses the utter disregard for the CONSTITUTION by the WHITE HOUSE] As to those matters that are unconstitutional Attempts to infringe upon people's first amendment rights of free speech and the press, the enemy list which we have seen, first amendment rights to peaceable assembly, fourth amendment rights to be secure in our houses and papers and effects, and fourth amendment rights, denial of rights to fair trial, right to due process of law. That is what we have, heard which has been done in the way of unconstitutional acts by the executive branch of the, Government. [01.35.53] Now, when you get into the area of the gross, I think it very important that we have more than just an exhibit before us, the exhibits that were part, of the enemy papers submitted by Mr. Dean to this committee yesterday----- [01.36.12-TAPE OUT]

WEICKER begins questioning with a statement that points out that the WHITE HOUSE has shown little regard for protecting the reputation of the parties involved in WATERGATE, even though it accuses DEAN of making wild charges to save himself] Senator WEICKER. Before I make my statement in regard to the entire memorandum I would like to read a quote from a Speech given by the Vice President of the United States not long ago, where he goes ahead and blasts this committee, in which speech he states: "There is no question whatever that some men, despite their innocence, will be ruined by all of this, even though I am sure that the Senate intended nothing of this kind when it commissioned this investigation." I think. Mr. Chairman, the American people should know that the author of the White House memorandum read by Senator Inouye yesterday makes statements of facts concerning John Mitchell which, in effect, assume that he took part in a conspiracy to break and enter, that he took part in obstructing Justice and suborning perjury, and all this without an admission or conviction of John Mitchell. And this, Mr. Chairman, done in the document sent by the White House to this committee. [00.03.20] I don't believe that in anything that the committee has done to date we have overstepped our bounds, to this extent and I think it important to note, not only in the ease of Mr. Dean, who sits before us, but also in the case of Mr. Mitchell, who is to come before us. Now, Mr. Dean, I didn't mean to jump ahead of you. Have You any comment to make relative to this memorandum, and if so, I don't mean to cut you off on it. Mr. DEAN. When the memorandum was being read yesterday, as you Will recall, Senator. I commented point by point as they went through it. I will certainly stand on the comments I made yesterday and I certainly stand on my testimony. I refuse to engage in descriptions of Motives of others, myself. [00.04.20-Sen. WEICKER goes into a long list of the "gross" acts on the part of the White House and the Executive Branch] Senator WEICKER. Now, Mr. Chairman, as I have indicated there have been acts that have been illegal, unconstitutional, and those that fall in the general category of gross. And I would like to go ahead and repeat now exactly what acts which have been testified to, have actually been proven or admitted in the illegal area, acts committed by various members of the executive branch of government--conspiracy to obstruct justice, conspiracy to intercept wire or oral communications, subornation of perjury, Conspiracy to obstruct a criminal investigation, conspiracy to destroy evidence; conspiracy to file false sworn statements, conspiracy to commit breaking and entering, conspiracy to commit burglary, misprision of a felony, filing of false sworn statements, perjury, breaking and entering, burglary, interception of wire and oral communications, obstruction of criminal investigation, attempted interference with administration of the internal revenue laws, and attempted unauthorized use of internal revenue information. These are illegal matters proven or admitted that have been accomplished by the executive branch of this Government. [00.06.00-Sen. WEICKER goes into a description of the White House's disregard for the CONSTITUTION] As to those matters that are unconstitutional Attempts to infringe upon people's first amendment rights of free speech and the press, the enemy list which we have seen, first amendment rights to peaceable assembly, fourth amendment rights to be secure in our houses and papers and effects, and fourth amendment rights, denial of rights to fair trial, right to due process of law. That is what we have, heard which has been done in the way of unconstitutional acts by the executive branch of the, Government. [00.06.42] Now, when you get into the area of the gross, I think it very important that we have more than just an exhibit before us, the exhibits that were part, of the enemy papers submitted by Mr. Dean to this committee yesterday, and I would like to go ahead and read just very short portions from some, of those memorandums.

[00.07.13-WEICKER goes on in his description of the "gross" acts by the NIXON White House, the ENEMIES LIST] This, I would say, say, falls into the area of gross: Memorandum for John Dean from Charles Colson: I received a well-informed tip that there are income tax discrepancies involving the returns of Harold J. Gibbons, the vice president of the Teamsters Union in St. Louis. This has come to we on very, very good authority. Gibbons, you should know, is an all out enemy, a McGovernite, ardently anti-Nixon. He is one of the three labor leaders who were recently invited to Hanoi. Please see if this can be started on at once and if there is in informer's fee, let me know. There is a good cause at which it can be donated. [00.07.56] Let me read from your memorandum, Mr. Dean, and I imagine this couldn't have been one of your proudest moments in life. If I am not mistaken, the subject dealing with Our political enemies Was a memorandum written by you to Mr. Haldeman, is that correct? Mr. DEAN. I will have to confess, I had to do some research to prepare that, because it was a new field for me.. Senator WEICKER, Well, I think we have got to get it all out on the table here, and that means everybody. And I am going to read two paragraphs which I find to be absolutely amazing having been written in the White House of the United States. "After reviewing this matter with a number of persons possessed of expertise in the field"--the subject of this is "Dealing with our political enemies"--"I have concluded that we do not need an elaborate mechanism or game plan, rather we need a, good project coordinator and full support for the project. In brief, the system would work as follows. [00.09.01-WEICKER reads a memo written by DEAN which lays out a plan to "Screw" political enemies] The project coordinator should then determine--and this is one of the ways the system operates--what source of dealings these individuals have with the Government--talking about our political enemies now--and how we can best screw them (for example grant availability, Federal contracts, litigation, prosecution, et cetera). Now. to move along to that portion of the Internal Revenue Service memo--this is how you use the Internal Revenue Service against your political enemies--just one sentence: [00.09.46-WEICKER reveals for the TV cameras the NIXON White House position on administrative agencies of the Government serving political interests] Walters must be made to know that discrete political actions and investigations on behalf of the administration are a firm requirement and responsibility on his part. In the same memorandum, "We have been unable to obtain information in the possession of IRS regarding our political enemies. And then lastly, in one of the lists which we received, as I understand it, are the "Opponent, Priority Activity"--Mr. Dean, does that come from Mr. Colson's office to Mr. Bell ? Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Senator WEICKER. All right. The language it first is very prosaic. "Having studied the attached material and evaluated the recommendations for the discussed action, I believe you will find my list worthwhile for go status"-the space age come to dirty politics. "It is in priority order." [00.10.41-WEICKER airs a lot of the White House's dirty laundry on shameful political practices] -Now I want everybody to listen to some of the comments that are made alongside the names: "It is time to give the message"; "they should be hit hard starting with" this particular Individual; "A scandal would be most helpful here; "we should give him a try. Positive results would stick a pin in Jackson's white hat"; "coming on fast. Emerging as a leading black anti-Nixon spokesman Has known weakness for white females." These are the exhibits. these are the exhibits that were turned in yesterday They form a part of the record of activity, along with those matters unconstitutional and illegal. [00.11.33-WEICKER reads from DEAN'S statement, on subject of strategy to stonewall and obstruct the ERVIN COMMITTEE.] Now, we get, to the point as to whether or not these attitudes still prevail or whether, in fact, they still continue. Mr. Dean, I am now referring to your statement on page 163. [READING] Ehrlichman and Haldeman concluded that the theory for dealing with this Committee should be as follows: The White House will take a public posture of full cooperation, but privately will attempt to restrain the investigation and make it as difficult as possible to get information and witnesses. A behind the scenes media effort would be made to make the Senate inquiry appear very partisan. The ultimate goal would be to discredit the hearing and reduce their impact by attempting to show that the Democrats have engaged in the same type of activities. Would you like to expand on that statement at all at this time? I plan to go through a chronology of events. even as they affect me and You. But. is there' anything in the way of a general statement that You would like to make at this time? Mr. DEAN. I think I indicated this to counsel yesterday, that at this Particular La Costa meeting I made several which I have not turned over as an exhibit but will be turned over as an exhibit, and this material is documented in that form.

"This film provides a more detailed look at Muslim life in the Soviet Union. It supplies excellent narration and footage for a film of this length. Muslims are free to develop their religious heritage, from birth to their dying day. Through the film we witness religious services, a wedding, and the graduation of theological schools, fully recognized by the state, trained to perpetuate the faith. This film is an unexpected and well-focused treatment that is as entertaining as it is informative."
