Among the latest urging these steps was Secretary of State WiUlam P. Rogers, who served the and attorney general in Eisenhower administration and is an intimate of Nixon. The President's statement said Kleindienst asked to be relieved as attorney general ''because he felt that he could not approiHTiately continue as head of the Justice Department now that it appears its investigation of the Watergate and related cases may implicate individuals with whom he has had a close personal and professional association.*' Spcalcing of Haldeman Ehrlichman, Nixon said: "Throughout our each of these was dismissed with one sent association, has have seldom men demonstrated a spirit of selflessness and dedication that I seen equaled. Their contributions to the work of this administration have toeen enormous. I greatly regret their departure." Of Kleindienst, Nixon said: **In making this decision, Mr. Kleindienst has acted in accordance with the highest standards of public serviqe and legal ethics. I am accepting his resignation with regret and with deep appreciation for his dedicated service to this administration." But the reference to acceptance of the resignation of Dean the no statement, mention ence in there was Dean's resignation should not be considered evidence ef wrongdoing. Dean issued a statement about 10 days ago —not cleared with the White House —saying he did not intend to ''become a scapegoat in the Watergate base." This foltowed published reports that Investigators had been told that Dean was a key figure in the Watergate plot. Ziegler said that Nixon would submit for confirmation immediately the appointment of Richardson to be attorney general. No mention was made of a new defenie secretary. Ziegler said Nixon had directed Richardson "to assume full responsibility and authority for coordinating all federal agencies in uncovering the whole truth about this matter and recommending ap* propriate changes in the law to prevent future campaign abuses of the sort recently uncovered. This indicated that the President, despite urgings from leaders of both parties, would not appoint a special, nonpoliticai investigator. **He will have total support from me in getting this job done," Nixon said of Richardson in the statement.

Offer Made Baptists May uy St. Academy Representaitives of Bethany Baptist Church, 373 E. Simmons St., are negotiating to purchase the St. Joseph's Academy building at Academy and Brooks streets. Rev. Francis Oman, pastor of Corpus OtmsAi Oiurch, said today no definite conunittment has been made, alth(High Bethany Baiptiat Church has made an offer to purchase the property. "Tiiey're very interested in buying, and we're very interested in selling," Fr. Oman commented. Dr. George Nulph, pastor of Bethany fi^tist Church, said the relocation will be made if the building formerly occupied by St. Joseph's Academy passes inspection and if a Geraldlne Harlan are currently introducing the new program to high school guidance counselors as well as students. They will continue to guide students in the program after the first class enters in the fall of 1973. In addition, they will aid in obtaining clinical exposure for the students in local hospitals, clinics and doctors' offices. Under the newly-developed program students will spend the first two years at Knox, in a liberal iarts environment, obtaining the appropriate science background fqr health care while taking elective courses. The final two years will be spent at Rush University in Chicago, where the students will be enrolled froni Rush. Both Mrs* Weiler and Mrs. Harlan are graduites v of Oalesburg Cottage HosplUl's diploma program (emer^g as Registered Nurses)» but both later earrsd baccalaureate degrees from Knox. "The key to this program/' according to Mrs. Harlan, "is that \ it is geared to the scientific changes ^hat are occurring and will continue to occur in health care in the future." Mrs. Weiler feels that the program's strongest point is that it is aimed at the individual. "It is the program's built-in flexibilities which make each student's experience unique," she explains. Further, the student is not committed to a firm four-year schedule he or she may elect another major area of study and stay at Knox for the full four years with no ri iler turned off last year is still in working order.

(UPI) Four teen Stateville Penitentiary inmates were injured Sunday when a fight erupted in the yard of the prison. At least two of those injured required hospitalization. No prison personnel were injured, a prison official said, but guards fired several warning shots above the heads of the fighting prisoners in an effort to disperse them. Warden John J. Twomey said about 50 of the 150 inmates in the yard for an afternoon of recreation were involved in the disturbance. is under way," Twomey said. "We don't know at this time what started it.

Fulilerton, 64,, has been custodian at the courthouse for the past six years. He also looked after the sheriff's office across the street. He made many friends during his tenure here. Fullerton's wife died several years ago, and he has since lived alone in a trailer about eight blocks from the courthouse. He owns a boat on the Mississipoi River and plans to do a lot of fishing during his retirement. for Fullerton in the circuit clerk's office.
