(Staff photo by Lawrence Pierce) Special Prosecution Force Work Near End WASHINGTON f/PI - Marking its first anniversary, the Watergate special prosecution foice announced Saurday that its investigation of the break- in and coverup is "nearly completed" and that its probe of campaign dirty tricks is in its final stage. Spokesmen for the prosecutors said the greatest number of criminal investigations still pending involve campaign contributions, including those from dairy-farmer cooperatives. Other investigations also are proceeding in the ITT case and in matters stemming from the probe of the White House plumbers unit, including alleged misuse of executive power, alleged illegal wiretapping and alleged misuse of the FBI. the Internal Revenue Service and other government agencies, the spokesmen said. In a 10-page report, the spokesmen gave a box score of the year's activities: *36 men and 13 corporations have been charged by the special prosecutors with some federal crime. Of these. 22 men and 9 corporations have been convicted, two men have had indictments dismissed and the remainder either have yet to plead to the charges or are awaiting trial. Those who have pleaded guilty include former Atty. Gen. Richard G. K l e i n d i e n s t , former White House aides John W. Dean III, Jeb Stuart Magruder, Frederick C. LaRue. Egil Krogh, Jr. and Herbert L. Porter and the President's former lawyer and f u n d r a i s e r , Herbert W. Kalmbach. "·Legal papers have been filed in court on 54 separate occasions, including an historic court battle over the first subpoena demanding presidential tape recordings and documents from President Nixon. ··One briefcase full of evidence pertaining to the House Judiciary Committee's Impeachment investigation of President Nixon was forwarded by a Watergate grand jury through U.S. Dist. Judge John J. Sirica to the committee. The anniversary report made no mention of Nixon's firing last year of the original Watergate prosecutor,'Archibald Cox. It also said that one major investigation and several minor ones, none of them specified, were being carried out directly by Deputy Special Prosecutor Henry S. Ruth. Although the prosecutors have not publicly acknowledged it, they are known to be probing the possibility of criminal fraud in the preparation of President Nixon's income tax returns during his first term.

Leubsdorf W A S H I N G T O N ( A P ) President Nixon's hardened attitude toward the House impeachment inquiry appears to have created the first serious public differences between the President and Vice President Gerald R. Ford. Ford is making it clear that he disapproves of what he calls Nixon's "stonewall attitude" and that he fears it may be the catalyst that brings about the President's impeachment. At the same time he indicates his oft-stated pleas for compromise and moderation are falling on deaf ears, and that he sees no sign the President p l a n s to reverse his course. For weeks now. Ford has been inssuing periodic public warnings that Nixon's plight would be deepened by a refusal to cooperate as fully as possible with the House Judiciary Committee. A veteran of 25 years in the House, Ford knows the sensitivities of congressmen and realizes that a refusal to cooperate will raise the institutional backs of even House mem- 'bers eager to support the President. This is, in fact, what is increasingly happening within the judicary committee, as shown by its lopsided votes in favor of subpoenaing evidence Nixon refuses to give. On Wednesday, Nixon set off a new showdown by informing the panel he would give it no further Watergate material. That night in Wilmington, Del., Ford took some questions from his audience at a R e p u b l i c a n r a l l y . A man asked if he would use his good offices to bring about compliance with subpoenas and other demands for evidence so that the Republicans could put Watergate behind them. * * * FORD GAVE his usual response about the large amount of material Nixon had already provided, then added that, after it is digested, "if they want any more that's relevant to the issues, to the impeachable offenses in the Constitution, I hope the President will give it to them, the sooner the better." Ford expressed confidence in Nixon's innocence but added, "Let's get it all out there and the quicker the better." Late Thursday morning, Nixon summoned Ford to one of their periodic chats. When he arrived at Andrews Air Force Base that afternoon to fly to New York for a speech, the vice president was barraged with questions about the session but brushed aside questions about whether the Watergate situation was even discussed. He later passed the word that he was annoyed at the way he had been hit by questions without warning. Upon a r r i v a l in New York, he looked unusually somber and aides said he was "a little up- tight" because the meeting with Nixon had thrown his schedule off. Later Thursday night, however, Ford gave more of a clue as to what might have been bothering him. In an interview with ABC's Bill Zimmerman, he indicated the White House had again rejected his advice and said, "it seems to me that a stonewall attitude isn't necessarily the wisest policy." When he was asked if he had any reason to believe that there might still be a compromise, he replied, "at this point, I don't think I'm in a position to give you any authoritative answer. I can only say that in my judgment, that would be a better procedure." FAD'S 14th ANNIVERSARY OPEN MEMORIAL DAY 10 A.M. TO 6 P.M. ALL STORES IF YOU'RE NOT BUYING FROM FAD YOU'RE PAYING TOO MUCH!
