A*»s*ii**A*t in the r»*»i State Chicken Cooking Contest Is Friday By Lesley Oelsner (C) A'eit- York Times Service WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court finally entered the Watergate affair Saturday. For all the brevity of its four-sentence ruling announcing that the court would give an expedited hearing to the Nixon-Jaworski subpoena dispute, the implications were potentially vast. The questions Friday afternoon were what impact the ruling would have, and why the court issued it. Technically, the court's ruling meant that special prosecutor Leon Jaworski, who asked for the hearings, had made a "showing" that the dispute over his subpoena was SONNY'S BEGINNING OF THE MONTH SALE!

Jaworski had asked for the expedited h e a r i n g on the ground that it was necessary « the trial of the Watergate coverup case was to start on schedule. + * * TO A NUMBER of lawyers, however, this was not sutti- cient reason for the court to bypass the normal procedures and put into effect a speedy- hearing rule designed for emergencies. The ruling, moreover, some observers noted, would probably have far more impact on the presidential impeachment proceeding than on the ·cover- up. The court might decide in favor of Jaworski, and order President Nixon to comply with the subpoena. If it did, Nixon would have several choices -- he could comply with the subpoena, ignore it, or, as Alexander M. Bickel of Yale Law School noted in a telephone interview yesterday, dismiss the specialprosecutor and appoint a new one who would drop the pursuit of the subpoenaed evidence. * * * JAWORSKI has already suggested that the subpoenaed evidence is damaging to Nixon. If Nixon does comply with the subpoena, the House impeachment inquiry would undoubtedly seek, and eventually obtain that evidence. If Nixon refused to obey the subpoena, he would be defying the Supreme Court. Thursday, expressing what seemed to be the predominant sentiment, Rep. Tom Railsback of the House Judiciary Committee said that if Nixon took such a course, he would be "impeached, and imp each ed quickly." If Nixon took the third alternative -- ousting the special prosecutor and appointing a new one -- he might also be risking impeachment. A Supreme Court ruling upholding Jaworski would have another effect as well: It would probably be based on a ruling that executive privilege is not an adequate defense to a subpoena, and such a ruling would bolster the judiciary committee's claim to evidence it has subpoenaed. If the court decided against Jaworski, of course, the decision might bolster the President in his fight against impeachment. Whatever the court decided, however, it has clearly helped bring matters to a head, more quickly than might otherwise have happened. The next q u e s t i o n , of course, was why the court did it. Bickel suggested that the justices felt "backed into a corner." Earlier news reports about the case had said that the court had a choice of taking the case or going on a four- month summer vacation, Bickel said, and the justices might have felt that a refusal to take the case would have looked bad publicly. WHEN NIXON first announced that he planned to try .to quash the Jaworski subpoena, a number of observers suggested that the main benefit of such a fight would be delay. The Supreme Court was unlikely to grant an expedited hearing, they said, and so the case would take months to decide. Since Nixon's initial announcement, "however, two factors have been introduced. First, Judge John J. Sirica ruled that Nixon must comply with the subpoena. Second, Jaworski suggested strongly that he had evidence, showing that the subpoenaed conversations -- conversations in which Nixon took part We're moving them out-1974 RCA color television, black-and-white TV and audio products at tremendous savings.
