President Truman Ends Hostilities of WW II MS President Harry S. Truman sitting in Oval Office, signing proclamation ending hostilities of World War II, delivering speech. "I have issued a proclomation terminating the period of hostilities of WWII as of 12 o'clock noon, Dec. 31st 1946. Under the law, a number of war & emergency statues cease to be effective upon the issuance of this proclomation. I believe that the time has come when such a declaration can properly be made & that it is in the public interest to make it. Most of the powers affected by the proclomation need no longer be exercised by the executive branch of the government. This is entirely in keeping with the policies which I consistently followed in an effort to bring our economy and our government back to a peace time basis as quickly as possible."

[01.15.26-the letter demonstrates the legitimacy of the trustee account set up to house the campaign money in DEAN'S care] Mr. DEAN. [Reads:] DEAR GARNETT. Enclosed you will find; (1) client's check dated April 20, 1973, numbered 1647 payable to the order of myself and Mr. McKeever as Trustees in the amount of $4,850.00 which we have suitably endorsed to the Bank : (2) the Bank's Treasurer's check dated April 19, 1973, in the amount of $10,350.000 covering the cash I delivered to you for safekeeping on Friday, April 13, 1973, pending the opening of an account, and (3) the two signature cards signed by Mr. Dean, myself and my partner, McKeever. As you know, when we first discussed opening the account I contemplated that Thomas Hogan, Esquire, would be co-trustee with myself inasmuch as he then also represented Mr. Dean. However, subsequent developments (conflict of interest) have required Mr. Hogan to withdraw from the representation and, accordingly my partner, McKeever, is acting as co-trustee. This change also required Mr. Dean to substitute his enclosed check numbered 1647 for his check numbered 1643 originally payable to Mr. Hogan and my-self as Trustees. I have had Mr. Dean void the latter check by tearing his signature therefrom and it remains in our files. Should you be inquired of by competent authorities as to the opening of this account, please tell them all you know, including whatever I have told you. Thank you for your cooperation in the matter. Sincerely, SHAFFER, McKEEVER & FITZPATRICK. [01.17.21] Mr. DASH. Who is it addressed to? Mr. DEAN. Garnett Inscoe, Suburban Trust Co., 255 North Washington St., Rockville, Md., April 4, 1973, Mr. DASH. Chairman. I would like to have that identified and introduced into the record, Senator ERVIN. That will be. done. The. reporter will number it appropriately as an exhibit and receive It into the record as such. Mr. DASH. Mr. Dean, I don't know whether--- [01.17.48] Mr. SHAFFER. Mr. Chairman, there is one statement I could make with respect to one of those documents that would clarify what I think would be confusing. I would be glad to do it under oath or off oath and if any member of your committee objects to me making a statement and you rule that I can't, I won't, but I would like to. It relates to the Suburban Trust treasurer's check. May I make the statement?, Senator ERVIN. Is there any objection from any member of the committee? [No response.] Senator ERVIN. Suppose you stand up and I will administer the oath. Do you swear that the. evidence you shall give the Senate Select Committee on Presidential Campaign Activities shall be the truth, the, whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God? Mr. SHAFFER. I do. STATEMENT OF CHARLES N. SHAFFER, ESQ., COUNSEL TO JOHN DEAN III Mr. SHAFFER. Mr. Chairman, after my client had given me the cash and a current check made payable to me and Hogan, and after I had gone to the Government with the. currency so that they could look at the-- Xerox it, do whatever they wanted -with it, I got to the bank. I was carrying it around about a day. I was a little uncomfortable. I got to the, bank about 2:05 on a Friday, and it was in April. It was, I believe, in early April. The records will show; the receipt there will date it. And I knocked on Mr. Inscoe's window and he came around to the door and he opened it up, because he knows me. My law office, is right near the, bank. I have a very small account there, and he treats me as a good customer, nevertheless. I said, Garnett, I have got all this cash, and I don't want to have it over the weekend; will you take it? So he said, yes, he would take it and he, would give me, a receipt. Then on Monday and Tuesday, -we were having trouble with Mr. Hogan and his conflict-of-interest problem, and we never got the signature cards back, and finally, Garnett, said, "Look, I can't hold this cash around here forever. I am going to give you a treasurer check at the bank so I can then pass the currency through the account." That is how this treasurer's check came into being. Thank you. If anybody wants to cross-examine me, I -will be glad to answer questions. Senator BAKER. Mr. Shaffer, no, I don't want to cross-examine you, but I can't resist the temptation to let the record note, that you claim and continue, to stand on and have not waived the attorney-client privilege. Mr. SHAFFER. Thank You. I appreciate the comment. [01.20.20]

This promotional film for Clark construction equipment deals with Michigan Exploration Tractor, an odd looking truck/tractor that carries several men and tons of equipment into remote, unzoned areas. It opens with a LS of the tractor speeding over a distant ridge, heads towards the camera and passes by it. Then there are several wide angle LS's of the tractor being tested by nature... several LS's grade tests, the first at 30%, the second at 45%... the hill of round sand test... the wooded marsh test (includes a subjective LS through the operator cab window)... the steep forest creek test where it has to winch its way out of a non-traction situation (includes CU's of the winch being deployed and operated)... the forest test where it mows down lots of sapling trees and goes through a steep incline and through a creek... the snow covered hill test. This is a very straight forward film about an interesting machine.

President Truman Speech Excerpt of a national radio address delivered by President Harry S. Truman: "...which will have to serve for generations. This year we must decide whether or not we shall devote our strength to reaching the goal of full production & full employment. This year we will have to make the decisions which will determine whether or not we gain that great future, at home & abroad, that we fought so valiantly to achieve. There are voices of defeat, dismay, timidity among us. These I challenge. They do not speak in the tradition that made this country great & kept it free. They will not guide us to success, these men of little faith. We can not shirk leadership in the post-war world. The problems of our economy will not be solved by timid men mistrustful of each other. We cannot face 1946 in a spirit of drift and irresolution. The men & women who made this country great & kept it free were plain people with courage & faith. Let us justify this heritage."

Montage of customers using credit cards, cashiers running carbons of cards, and customers signing receipts; done to soundtrack of show-tune "Money Makes the World Go 'Round." Wertheimer (VO) discusses credit card use and the expiration of the ban on passing extra costs from merchants to consumers. U.S. Senator William Proxmire (D-WI) seated at desk, says customers should pay extra to use credit cards because poorer cash customers now have to pay higher prices to absorb credit card costs to merchants. U.S. Sen. Al D'Amato (R-NY) disagrees, saying middle income families depend on credit to meet expenses and shouldn't be penalized.

[00.37.07-THOMPSON continues to ask DEAN about the finances of the COVERUP and DEAN'S dealings with the money] Mr. THOMPSON. Let me ask you about this entire fund. I think this merits some questioning with regard to the remaining money that was there: $10,350 that you said was not used. So you took $4,850 because you did not want it to be used in coverup activities or used to perpetuate the coverup. [00.37.35-THOMPSON tries to suggest that DEAN'S dealings with the funds were related to DEAN'S activities in the rest of the coverup, including taking materials from HUNT'S safe] Let us place this in context with Your own situation at, that time. Is it, not true that on October 11, Mr. Hunt had filed a motion to suppress in the criminal case in which he was involved at that time, alleging in an affidavit as part of its motion that certain documents or certain materials had not been turned over to the authorities when his safe was cleaned out? Mr. DEAN. I do not, recall the date when he had filed that motion, whether it was October 11. I recall there, was a motion filed to that effect. In fact, I recall that we received a letter at the White House. that it 'was a draft letter by Mr. Bittman to Mr. Colson that I received from Mr. O'Brien indicating the fact that such a motion might be filed and in that letter, the question was raised as to where given items that were in the safe were located. This immediate raised to me the problem of the fact that materials, had not one directly to the FBI, but rather had gone directly to Mr. Gray. So I was aware. of the fact that that motion was in the works and was going to be filed. [00.38.59] Mr. THOMPSON. And the basis of that motion was, at least One of the points, as I understand In the affidavit was that certain materials had not been turned over from his safe, had been withheld, and something had happened to them, is that not correct? Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Mr. THOMPSON. All right, and you -were one, Of the Ones involved. I believe you said Mr. Ehrlichman told you to see, that the safe, was cleaned out. You were the one who, I believe, held a suitcase for a while, carried it around in the trunk of your car? Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Mr. THOMPSON. YOU were the one who turned over documents to Mr. Gray? Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Mr. THOMPSON. In order that they would not be leaked, I believe you said. Did you -not consider when this motion was filed, -when this affidavit was filed, that there was some amount of pressure on you, that you might be called in a hearing in the criminal case in order to explain what might have happened to those documents? Mr. DEAN. Indeed, I was quite, aware -when the motion was filed and I was called down to visit with the prosecutors, with the fact that I was going to be called to testify. That is -what compelled me to go and tell Mr. Petersen that in fact, the documents had not all been turned over directly to the agents. Mr. THOMPSON So you -were concerned about that at that time? Mr. DEAN. I was concerned about what? Mr. THOMPSON. The fact that this motion had been filed and you knew that, you had been actually the one who had, in effect, diverted some of those materials. Mr. DEAN,. Let us understand this. I had been asked to deep six and shred documents. Mr. THOMPSON. You testified as to that. [00.40.27] Mr. DEAN. I did not want to deep six and shred documents. As far as I was concerned, I had been prepared to testify -when my name became known that in Mr. Gray's testimony my name was going to come out. Mr. THOMPSON. You had been prepared to testify that you had given him certain documents and that they were extremely sensitive and I believe you said you did not, tell him that they should never see the light of day. Mr. DEAN. That is not what I remember. I believe I testified yesterday that I said they were not to be made public. [00.40.55] Mr. THOMPSON. Were you prepared to testify that you carried the suitcase around in your car for a few days to decide -whether or not you would deep six it? Mr. DEAN. If I had been called, that would have come out. Mr. THOMPSON. Would that not have been a certain amount of pressure on you, coming in and testifying truthfully is one thing but wanting to do that or in trying to prevent yourself from being placed in a situation where you would have, to do that--you did not want to go down there? [00.41.19] Mr. DEAN. Mr. Thompson, you cannot believe the amount of pressure that, came on me after the Gray hearings by people not wanting we to testify. It became inevitable that I might have to testify. [00.41.31-IS THOMPSON suggesting DEAN wanted to take the cash and skip the country to avoid testifying? What is his point?] Mr. THOMPSON. I am talking about the specific point. I am talking about 'whether or not, on the, day before you took this money out, and, of course, the records speak for themselves--I believe it, was October 11 of that year--that the day before you took the, money out, this motion was filed and in your mental condition at the moment, whether it was a matter of great concern to you? Mr. DEAN. I would not, testify it was a matter of great concern; no, sir. Mr. THOMPSON. Would you carry a suitcase around with documents in it- Mr. DEAN. That was a long way off and let, me tell you the interviewing events. After the letter came to my attention before the motion was filed, I had conversations with Mr. O'Brien about this. I told him that if the motion were filed by Mr. Bittman that a lot of problems might be created for the White House. Mr. THOMPSON. When was this conversation? Mr. DEAN. Well, it was well in advance of the filing of the motion. Mr. THOMPSON. Was it well after October--before the motion was filed? Mr. DEAN. Yes, it was. Mr. THOMPSON. And what was the substance of the conversation? Mr. DEAN. I told him that, it would create real problems for the White House if it was. I didn't get explicit with him. [00.42.39]

1) Merchants Bank Town & Country Charge Card (B&W, sound)-- Great achival footage circa 1920's of an old jalopy jumping a shack only to crash when it lands (fairly famous shot); tracking shot of a Roman feast (orgy, anyone?); tight LS of a biplane crashing into the side of a house; MS of a man wearing a toga getting into forced and funny fisticuffs with two other men; LS and MS of the US cavalry charging through a Great Plain. (ONLY #1 MERCHANTS BANK TOWN AND CHARGE CARD IS ON MASTER 1018) 2) Merchants Bank Town & Country Charge Card (B&W, sound)-- shorter ad but similar in construction to last one. Features archival footage circa 1920's of a man standing on a speeding passenger car, then climbing the rope ladder of a biplane flying just above. NIce stunt. 3) Alberto Silken Rinse (B&W, sound)-- A blond model stands with product in a TV studio, dispensing wit and wisdom as it pertains to the wares. There are some culturally ironic lines here, as well as a funny demo of "Milky" and "Gooey" hair products. 4) Goldblatt's Home Center in Downer's Grove, Illinois (color, sound)-- Good interior shots of the large store's home furnishing departments. Boutique area, water fountain, carpeting, home decorating, lamps, chandeliers, TV sets and so on. A duplicate ad proceeds this one. 5) Lennox (B&W, sound)-- Opens with an awful still animation spoof of "Dragnet" as off-screen detectives vow to unravel the mysterious identity of "Mr. Builder". Of course, this turns into a sales film for Lennox representatives. The first speaker, a nervous young man, reads carelessly from a cue card. The second speaker, a bullish older man, reads rather animatedly from a convenient script. But before he can get too far the sequence ends. 6) Dermafresh Medicated Hand Lotion (B&W, sound)-- There are several spots, in the following order. Note, they repeat, in order. A) Short, rather amusing skit involving two female florists, one of whom is handstripping roses. B) A young woman sits in a kitchen and talks to the camera about Dermafresh. C) A woman gives another woman a body massage, using Dermafresh. 7) Patricia Stevens Cosmetics (B&W, sound)-- There are several spots, in the following order. A) Opens on a commercial set for PS as the director talks to the camera about the product, the product model (on set), then introduces his loyal and loving wife who happens to be a PS glamor subscriber as well. Cut to MS of his glamorous housewife (pearl necklace and all) talking to the camera, hocking the goods. Cut to products shots of their lipstick line, then to CU of another model applying it. B) Same format as the last but featuring a print photographer snapping a PS model before introducing his PS glamorous wife. C) Same format as the last but featuring the mused stylings of an oil painter painting a PS model's portrait before introducing his coincidentally PS glamorous wife. 8) Marhoefer Meats (B&W, sound)-- There are several spots, in the following order. A) Animation of a cowboy, a cowgirl and a cook singing and dancing in front of a covered wagon. They don't write jingles like this anymore. Cut to live action CU of several hot dogs boiling in a pot of water. Cut to CU of a plate of cooked hot dogs being served (presented) to an empty kitchen table. ONLY THIS MARHOEFER MEATS COMMERCIAL IS ON MASTER 109. B) Same format as the last but about smoke-cooked bacon. Good CU of several strips of bacon frying in a pan, then being served. C) Same format as above but about luncheon meat. Good CU's of their luncheon meat line, all pre-packaged. D) Same format as above but about pre-cooked pork sausage. Good CU of several hearty morsels bioling in a pot, then served as the breakfast table with a pot of coffee.
