(UPI) The energy crisis, problems of food production and shades of the Watergate affair confronted the 12th Annual Midwest Governors' Conference today. W a s h i n g ton Gov. Daniel Evans, chairman of the Executive Committee of the National Governors' Conference, Sunday called upon President Nixon to hold a news conference to outline his version of the Watergate incident. Evans, here for a meeting of the Executive Committee held in conjunction with the Midwestern Governors' Conference, said he felt a news conference would provide the best forum for a presidential appearance. I wish to extend my appreciation to my friends, relatives, and Dr. Peterson, First United Presbyterian Church for the visits, cards and flowers and to the west wing #2 efficient nurses, Dr. Crowell and Dr. Giles for the wonderful care during my stay in Cottage Hospital. Emil E. Sundberg The Republican governor said, however, that he felt the President should wait until more major witnesses have testified before the Senate Watergate Committee before making a statement on the matter "I don't think that, until such a conference is held, can full confidence of the people in the [President be restored," Evans said. "He should clarify his role and let national attention move back to the major issues before us. "Watergate is not the first instance of misuse of campaign funds. Anything we can do to open up the ' matter of contributions is to the good," he said. Evans said governors also are concerned with the growing energy crisis and are in the process of creating state energy councils as a "useful adjunct" to the Federal Trade Commission. He said states ultimately miay face the necessity of allocating fuel to various elements within the state. Earlier Sunday, Iowa Gov. Robert D. Ray, chairman of the Midwest conference, said that farm problems are immediate and growing by the minute. But he said he would refrain from asking for resolutions on farm problems, including what he called "a meat crisis." "I shy away from resolutions at such meetings as this because too often, the participants act too hastily without the proper background," Ray said.

Stevenson III, D-Ill., while sharply criticizing Nixon administration economic policies, has offered a three-point program to strengthen the American dollar in the world market.

"Frankly, there is no easy way out" He said he believed the nation would "have to live with across - the - board controls" on the economy for the immediate future. A cutback in military- expenditures, he said, might increase productivity and prevent inflation. Stevenson is chairman of the Senate Committee on International Finance and serves on the Commerce Committee.

Adams has predicted that the Watergate incident will have no adverse effects on GOP vote-getting ability in Illinois. WILL THE HELP BE THERE?

Broad 342*6320 Adams, 37, a Springfield businessman who has held GOP posts since he' was old enough to vote, was elected to the chairman's post Saturday, defeating Belleville attorney William Stiehl, the only other contender for the post, during a meeting of the 24-member Republican State Central Committee here. The committee also elected Cliffard D. Carlson, 57, a wealthy Geneva industrialist and a former congressman, to the post of GOP national committeeman from Illinois.
