  • Description

    In his public appearance before Congress, Sherman Adams admitted today he might have been guilty of a lack of prudence, but he strongly denied any intention of gaining preferential treatment in the government for his friend Bernard Goldfine.

    Mr. Adams said his Vicuna cost had been greatly overvalued, that the fabric at the mill was worth only $69. He then dealt with the question of the Oriental rug.

    As for the phone calls, Mr. Adams asked rhetorically what congressman had not made such calles. When his two-hour appearance was over, Committee Chairman Harris said he had not changed his mind.

    With Mr. Adams having put his story on the record voluntarily, the White House late in the day announced that the Presidential assistant would remain in his job.
