The mys­tery deepened over the eras­ure of a Wa­ter­gate tape as Pres­id­ent Nix­on’s sec­ret­ary moved away from the White House’s po­s­i­tion that she was solely re­spons­ible for the eras­ure. At a Nov. 11, 1973, U.S. dis­trict court hear­ing, Rose Mary Woods stressed that she could not have been re­spons­ible for eras­ing more than 5 1/2 minutes of the tape. Be­low is The Times’ story from the fol­low­ing day.
