[00.35.02-more documents concerning the ENEMIES LIST are introduced] Senator ERVIN. Those -will be received and marked for identification but will not be, admitted into evidence at this time because I am not sure that this committee has jurisdiction to investigate the matters to which that was related. You might let them be marked. Senator ERVIN. Let's see the confidential document. Mr. McCANDLESS. It is coming right up. Mr. DEAN. Counsel has also advised me that the one sheet is not complete. There were other lists when we went through last night, and the only thing I can say is it must have, gotten back into another file, and we will reexamine it and find it. [00.35.53] Senator ERVIN. This confidential document is a thing that is a memorandum for H.R. Haldeman, Charles W. Colson, "Eyes Only." Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Senator ERVIN. What does this "Eyes Only" mean on- the document? [Laughter.] Mr. DEAN. That is one, of the classifications that, was used around the White House to mean that it was for the eyes of the recipient only. Senator ERVIN. And he, was not to copy it, is that what it means? Mr. DEAN. Well, often you will know there are carbon copies or blind carbon copy indications on it. The use of this classification developed when we started reducing the rather overabundant use of what really were security classifications, national security classifications that related to matters that, were not, national security. Senator ERVIN. I -will also have these marked for identification because it is not clear yet that they relate to matters that the committee is authorized to investigate. Mr. DEAN. I say they came in response to Senator Weicker's question of yesterday. Senator ERVIN. Have them marked for identification and not as exhibits here. Thank you. Mr. McCANDLESS. Just one, more request. I have been handed a 3-page list of opponents priority. and there are 20 names on it, the document that were, turned over this morning and marked by Mr. Dean in several places, contain more than just these 3 pages. Mr. DASH. That has already been received. That is what I was asking Mr. Dean to identify in connection with the June 24 memorandum signed by Mr. Bell. But all that was received from You this morning was that particular memorandum of a list of names. It is the only names we received. Senator ERVIN. I am going to request the staff to make. requests of the, White House for copies of the, document, decision memorandum of the White House July 15, 1970, and the White House, document organization and organizations of the interagency group on domestic intelligence and internal security. and also for the document entitled "Domestic Intelligence Review" which was a part of the memorandum for H.R. Haldeman from Tom Charles Huston. I believe you called the name Huston? Mr. DEAN. Yes, I believe that is the way he pronounces his name, Senator. Senator ERVIN. Senator Gurney, you may proceed. [00.38.47-GURNEY continues] Senator GURNEY. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Mr. Chairman, I will try to be a-, brief as possible and close, up my testimony. Senator GURNEY. So far as the chairman is concerned I think you are rendered a real service to the committee and the country and I don't want you to feel rushed at all. [there is some snickering at this from the audience] Senator GURNEY. I appreciate the courtesy of the chairman and the Members of the committee. I just wanted to clear up one little point on the coverup money which I didn't touch on this morning. When you had your meeting with Mr. Kalmbach on June 29 did you ask him for a certain sum of money that you would need to have him raise? Mr. DEAN. At that time I didn't know how much -was to be raised and I believe I discussed with him the fact that he would get this information from Mr. LaRue. Senator GURNEY. Where did you have this conversation? Is that in the coffee shop or up in his hotel room? Mr. DEAN. Well, the bulk of the conversation took place in his room and not in the coffee shop. We only talked for maybe 5 minutes in the coffee shop. Senator GURNEY. And then you adjourned up to his room in the Mayflower Hotel? Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Senator GURNEY. But you don't recall that any figure was mentioned at that time? Mr. DEAN. No, Senator, I don't.
