Footage of Woman's suffrage protests in England, woman jumping in front of king's horse & trampled (for the cause) & marches. Elizabeth Cady Stanton (archival suffragettes footage) VO Excerpts of "The Solitude of Self" speech (combination of 2 versions of the speech from 1892) TLS/MS woman being led to paddy wagon by London policemen in tall hats. Scroll text: "London Suffragette Pageant, 66,000 women take part in a procession through London, All the famous women...are represented." MS suffragette women in white w/banners marching. Text, "Suffragette killed in attempt to pull down the king's horse." MS horserace, woman in black steps in front of a charging horse, collision. MS men running onto track to check injured, dead. Text, (Emily Wilding Davison, 1913) "Miss Davison's Funeral, The Procession of the suffragette who was fatally injured at Epsom passing..." MS funeral procession, flanked by police officers. MS Marchers, some men & more women for suffrage, signs, "Fortune Favours the Brave," "National Women's Social and Political Union 1903, M Pankhurst Founder, Champion of Womanhood, Famed far for her deeds of Daring Rectitude," "Votes for women," "Votes Outlawed." MS more suffragettes marching, carrying staffs in white hats & all. Voice Over, "We ask no sympathy from others in the anxiety and agony of a broken friendship or shattered love. When death sunders our nearest ties, alone we sit in the shadow of our affliction. Alike amid the greatest triumphs and darkest tragedies of life we walk alone. On the divine heights of human attainments, eulogized and worshipped as a hero or saint, we stand alone. In ignorance, poverty, and vice, as a pauper or criminal, alone we starve or steal; alone we suffer the sneers and rebuffs of our fellows; alone we are hunted and hounded through dark courts and alleys, in by-ways and highways; alone we stand in the judgment seat; alone in the prison cell we lament our crimes and misfortunes; alone we expiate them on the gallows. In hours like these we realize the awful solitude of individual life, its pains, its penalties, its responsibilities: hours in which the youngest and most helpless are thrown on their own resources for guidance and consolation. Seeing then that life must ever be a march and a battle, that each soldier must be equipped for his own protection, it is the height of cruelty to rob the individual of a single natural right. To throw obstacles in the way of a complete education is like putting out the eyes; to deny the rights of property, like cutting off the hands. To deny political equality is to rob the ostracised of all self-respect; of credit in the market place; of recompense in the world of work; of a voice in those who make and administer the law; a choice in the jury before whom they are tried, and in the judge who decides their punishment. Shakespeare's play of Titus and Andronicus contains a terrible satire on woman's position in the nineteenth century - Rude men seized the king's daughter, cut out her tongue, cut off her hands, and then bade her go call for water and wash her hands. What a picture of woman's position! Robbed of her natural rights, handicapped by law and custom at every turn, yet compelled to fight her own battles, and in the emergencies of life to fall back on herself for protection."

[00.55.30-DASH questions DEAN on his recollection of discussing with NIXON the issue of PAYOFFS to keep the BURGLARS silent at trial] Mr. DASH. Now, is that to your recollection, a correct statement of how, that conversation took place, or is your statement the correct--- Mr. DEAN. No, sir; my recollection is there was no discussion of the--it appears to me what they have done is take what I did raise on the 21st regarding Mr. Hunt's direct threat of a blackmail nature to John Ehrlichman and confused it with an earlier meeting which occurred on March 13, when the $1 million conversation came, up, and put the two together some way. [00.56.00] Mr. DASH. Now do you recall the. President ever telling you that it was wrong to pay this $1 million? [00.56.08] Mr. DEAN. To the contrary. He said it would be no problem to raise, the $1 million. Mr. DASH. Now, also, the next item in this memorandum states that the, President spoke to--I think that was Mr. Dean spoke to Haldeman's return of the $350,000, He said that Haldeman and Ehrlichman possibly had no legal guilt with regard to the money matters. Did you make such a statement? Mr. DEAN. No, sir. Mr. DASH. Let me go back again: [00.56.39-DASH returns to the White House statement, which asserts that DEAN in March 1973 did NOT inform NIXON of his activities in the coverup] [READING] Mr. Dean said nothing of his role with regard to the coverup money. He -said nothing about his discussions with Magruder helping him prepare for the grand jury. He said nothing of his instructions to Caulfield to Offer executive clemency, Mr. DASH. Was that true, on the 21st? Mr. DEAN. I think the contrary is true and I will rely on my statement, Mr. Dash. Mr. DASH. Now, there is another reference on that meeting on the 21st which we have from this oral communication from the White House. It says "Dean said Colson had talked to Mr. Hunt about executive clemency." Is that the way you had put it to the President? [00.57.31-the issue of EXECUTIVE CLEMENCY discussed] Mr. DEAN. No, sir. As I recall, this initially came up on--the 13th was the first time it, came up and the second time it came up was on the 15th I believe I have testified several times to the. way that did occur and I respectfully disagree with that interpretation. [00.57.49-COMMON SENSE INDICATES THAT NIXON MUST HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THE CLEMENCY OFFER] Mr. DASH. Well, but, as stated, if in fact Mr. Dean had said that Colson had talked to Hunt about Executive clemency, and there is nothing further in this memorandum, if the President had not authorized Executive clemency, would you have expected the President to have raised a question about that and called upon you or somebody who had authority to have Mr. Colson retract that? Mr. DEAN. Only the President can promise Executive clemency and Mr. Colson was quite aware, of that. I think that the facts are that, in fact, Mr. Colson had talked to the, President, who in turn had--then Colson talked to Mr. Bittman, who in turn talked to Mr. Hunt. [00.58.40] Mr. DASH. Well, I just want the, record to show that in this submission by the White, House, to the committee, the reference, to the Executive clemency merely shows that Mr. Dean said Colson had talked to Hunt about Executive clemency. There was no reference to any action of the President, whether he had said that he had not authorized that and whether in fact, he indicated that, whoever had done that, especially Mr. Colson, with Mr. Hunt, that that was to be retracted. The, submission does not have that in it in a reconstruction of the so-called White House log. Mr. Chairman, I would like to just have, this introduced as part of the record, which I have already identified as a memorandum based on a call. [00.59.24] Senator ERVIN. Without objection, it will be, so identified. and made, a part of the record. Senator BAKER. Mr. Chairman, I think that is appropriate to make that a part of the record, but I think its character ought to be understood. This does not, as I understand it, represent a definitive "White House position," but rather are the transcribed notes of a telephone conversation between Mr. Buzhardt an attorney of the White House, and Mr. Thompson, which were turned over to Mr. Dash and reviewed subsequently by Mr. Garment and Mr. Buzhardt.

[00.02.00-MITCHELL explains his reasoning for not informing NIXON of the facts of Watergate and the COVERUP] Mr. MITCHELL. As I have testified this morning, I was sure that, knowing Richard Nixon, the President, as I do, I would just, lower the boom on all of this matter and it would come, back to hurt him and it would affect him in his reelection. And that is the basis upon which I made the decision. And apparently, others concurred with it, Now, I am not speaking for them. It, may very well be that I was wrong, that it was a bad matter of judgment. [00.02.37-TALMADGE bears down hard on MITCHELL] Senator TALMADGE. Am I to understand from your response that you placed the expediency of the next election above your responsibilities as an intimate to advise the President, of the peril that surrounded him? Here -was the deputy campaign director involved, here -were his two closest associates in his office involved, all around him were people involved in crime, perjury, accessory after the fact, and you deliberately refused to tell him that. Would you state that the expediency of the election was more important? Mr. MITCHELL. Senator, I think you have put it exactly correct. In my mind, the reelection of Richard Nixon, compared with what was available on the other side, was. so much more important, that I put it In just, that context. Senator TALMADGE. Do you think anything short of a trial for treason would have prevented his election? Mr. MITCHELL. I beg your pardon, Senator? Senator TALMADGE. Do you think anything short of a trial for treason would have prevented his election? Mr. MITCHELL. Well, it depends on what area we are talking about. Mr. Thompson and I went through that, and of course. depending upon what time and what area It -was in. Senator or TALMADGE. . Thank you. Mr. Mitchell. I have no further questions at this time. Senator Gurney. [00.03.47-LEHRER in studio] LEHRER states that TALMADGE tried to probe into MITCHELL'S motivations, and found that there was a mix of personal loyalty and politics. Sen. GURNEY will ask questions next. [PBS Network ID-TITLE SCREEN "SENATE HEARINGS ON CAMPAIGN ACTIVITIES"] [00.07.22-LEHRER] introduces questions by Sen. GURNEY. [00.07.32-Committee table, ERVIN, pan r-l to GURNEY] Senator GURNEY. Thank YOU, Mr. Chairman. Senator ERVIN. Mr. Mitchell, you have been sitting there for about 2 hours. Would you like to have a brief recess? Mr. MITCHELL. I am doing fine, sir. I am here at the pleasure of you gentlemen, so I -would certainly be. delighted to sit as long as you do. Senator ERVIN. You may proceed, Senator GURNEY. Mr. Mitchell. YOU were, the President's campaign manager 1968 and the campaign director in 1972. and of course, his close personal friend, I would assume that you had many discussions with him during 1971 and early 1972 about the upcoming political campaign in 1972, that correct? [00.08.28] Mr. MITCHELL. Well, Senator, there were discussions but probably not really as many as you might expect, In other words, we didn't meet daily or even weekly. Sometimes months would go by before We would meet and discuss the subject matter. Senator GURNEY. Well, in any of those discussions, Mr. Mitchell, with. the. President in this time frame did he ever bring up the matter of bugging and electronic surveillance or dirty tricks in the 1972 Presidential campaign? Mr. MITCHELL. Certainly not with respect to anything that had to do with politics. Mr. Gurney--- Senator, excuse me. I should have called you. Senator GURNEY. What about 1968; did that, subject ever come up? [00.09.18] Mr. MITCHELL. It didn't come up during the campaign In 1968. It, came up directly after the election, if this is an area which you want me to get into, It, is past the election at the day that J. Edgar Hoover and Mr. Helms came, up to 'New York to the Pierre Hotel and the President was interviewing his new personnel for his administration There, was a meeting with Mr. Hoover and I was present, because although I was still protesting that I didn't want to become the Attorney General. I think he still--that is, he, the President, thought that he wanted me to. So I was in the meeting with Mr. Hoover in which Mr. Hoover advised the President that the land lines of his plane and the Vice President's plane. somebody working in the campaign here in Washington and another embassy had been bugged during the campaign. Senator GURNEY. In 1968? Mr. MITCHELL. This is in 1968, after the election---- [00.10.25]

CU's and MS's of kids and adults sitting at an accounting machine, typing their hearts out. Followed by series of stills representing the fund's outreaching programs: social service, classroom education, physical therapy, marital counseling, rescuing refugees and so on. 2) Old Reliable Custom Blend Coffee (B&W, sound)-- Opens with fireworks in night sky a la Honeymooners as a superimposed product image flies to forefront. Cut to CU of coffee cups being filled from a classy silver decanter. Cut to panning CU of 25 filled coffee cups. 3) Chicken Bones Candy (B&W, sound, low levels)-- Great low angle MS of a showroom model bursting through the top of a large Chicken Bones can. Excellent MS's of people giddily eating the sweet confection. 4) Mount Vernon, Virginia (color, silent)-- Excellent color footage of George Washington's historic homestead and final resting place. Tight and wide LS's of the grounds. CU of stone plaque announcing George's tomb, zoom out to MS of same as 2 kids pose in front of it. 5) Hollywood Builders (B&W, sound)-- MS of a sultry young lady talking coyly on a telephone to her friend Gladys. Doesn't help matters the model is wearing some of the most casual wear this side of film noir. And yet she is talking about tract homes in Wilmette, Illinois. Cut to LS's of the suburban homes, then MS's of the homegenous interiors. 6) Homko Lawn Mower (color, sound)-- Great color outtakes from a Bernie Howard of the same name. MS's and CU's of an old man starting a bright orange lawnmower on the front lawn of his suburban home. Great CU's and MS's of the man cutting the top of an exposed water pipe, spray spewing into the air (oops!). Rich color, ultimately silly material. 7) Elegant Touch Nail Hardener (color, sound)-- CU's of elegant and unelegant fingernails (women's); CU's of nails being polished in a TV studio. Spot ends with great MS's of women polishing their nails in the most unlikely (and downright shallow) of places: a grocery store, passenger seat of a convertible and a busy downtown street. 8) Melody Hill Wine Cooler (B&W, sound)-- There are two spots, in the following order. A) MS of a young married couple sweating and tyring to relax in their living room. n animated Melody Hill grape (well, he might be a grape but he looks like an orange) slides a tray of Wine Coolers to them. Cut to animation of several Melody Hill fruit talking to the camera about the product. B) MS of an older couple happily watching TV in their living room. Cut to an excellent MS of them staring into the camera, a TV screen border framing the shot. MS of the wife walking to the liquor cabinet upon the TV's subliminal instructions, revealing a shelf full of Melody Hill wines. 9) Coco Wheats (B&W, sound)-- animation of a character named Mr. Magic (yes, he is a magician) hocking this cocoa-flavored hot cereal. Mr. Magic is adept in some seriously demented trickery as he twists his neck several times and produces big bunnies from his hat before serving breakfast to an overly eager boy. Cut to a product shot of a cup of hot chocolate, a slice of chocolate cake and a sliver of pudding pie; the point is to show what Coco Wheats tastes like. 10) Roman Meal Bread (B&W, sound)-- Several quick animated spots with cloying jingle. 11) Green Giant Mushrooms (color, sound)-- Classic animation of the Jolly Green Giant, lil' Giant and Mr. Mole selling canned mushrooms in colorful Green Valley.

This is a product promo for Sears air conditioners, but it seems to function better as outsider art. A "typical' family lives in a bright white "house" (actually a TV studio) : Mom sits in her chair, her brother loafs in a hammock, a little boy shoots plastic arrows at everyone, and a nubile teenage daughter dances around, jiggling suggestively in a two-piece bikini (she wears next to nothing the entire film). It gets unbearably hot, they hallucinate (the TV weatherman gets evil), the family fights, a Sears salesman comes over with catalogs and AC products, the daughter gets doused with a bucket of water, an air conditioner gets sold, and the Sears salesman stands outside the happily air conditioned family's house while money falls from the heavens to his delight. There are some product shots of air conditioners and a shagadelic soundtrack swings throughout the film.
