(Studio) Senate Appropriations Committee begins investigation of suspected Air Force trick and what members call example of Force's contempt for Congress
REPORTER: Roger Mudd

(DC) Committee questions Air Force continuation of computer system after halt ordered by Congress; central to probe is memo with regard to continue by Major General Robert Edge. Edge says memo was quoted out of context. [EDGE - apologizes for any embarrassment caused.] [Thomas EAGLETON - believes Edge did, and still does attempt to deceive Congress, in answering Senator McClellan's questions. Wasn't on Watergate Committee, but equates Edge's credibility to that of Ehrlichman, Haldeman and his presentation disgraceful as Richard Nixon's in David Frost interview.]
