The Conrad cartoon of Aug. 6 includes the name of my client, Maurice H. Stans, among a list of individuals in the Nixon Administration who were depicted as having served behind prison walls. Mr. Stans has never served a day in jail or prison in his life. He had never even been charged with any violations in Watergate, much less ever been convicted of any crime in connection with Watergate. ROBERT H. FINCH Pasadena Editor's note: Stans was indicted in 1974 and later acquitted of 10 counts of perjury and conspiracy in the so-called Vesco case.

Capitol Journal by George Skelton ("A Trusty Political Animal," Oct. 12) paid tribute to former Lt. Gov. Robert H. Finch, who died Oct. 10. I would like to relate an incident that demonstrated his down-to-earth good common sense. In the summer of 1967 or 1968, the National Guard 40th Armored Division was being disbanded. A formal parade was scheduled at Camp Roberts, Paso Robles, and all units from throughout California reported as part of their annual field training. I was part of a unit that made an overnight drive from Twentynine Palms.
