Nixon says his resignation was the ultimate apology

Former President Richard M. Nixon says he will never say he is sorry or apologize for his part in the Watergate scandal, Monitor correspondent Arthur Unger reports.

''There is no way that you could apologize that is more eloquent, more decisive, more final . . . (than) resigning the presidency of the United States. That said it all. And I don't intend to say anymore.''

''60 Minutes'' (Sunday, 7-8 p.m.) is airing excerpts from 38 hours of videotaped memoirs which Mr. Nixon recorded with Frank Gannon, who had been a White House fellow during the Nixon administration and worked with the former President on his books. CBS is reported to have paid $500,000 for the broadcast rights to an hour and a half of those tapes. Nixon will share the proceeds with Mr. Gannon. More of the interview-memoir will be broadcast Tuesday at 8 p.m. on CBS's ''The American Parade.''

On the break-in, Nixon said: ''Whatever the stupidity of . . . the original break-in . . . (it) was exceeded by our reaction to it. It was stupidity at its very highest.''
