Watergate Opinions vary on right to quiz Nixon prosecutors quit case Associated Pfftss WASHINGTON -thethree assistant U.S.. attorneys who had been assigned to the Wat* ergate investigation since the break-in at Democratic head' quarters resigned from the case Friday. Earl J. Silbert, Seymour Glanzer and Donald E. Campbell quit after conferring for more than two hours with special Watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox. The three federal lawyers led the prosecution of the original seven Watergate def e n d a n t s, but have since come under criticism for allegedly not pursuing leads that some persons believe could have disclosed wider involvement in the break-in. Speculation that they were resigning because of criticism is unwarranted, the three men said in a letter of resignation. ,^;In accepting the resignations Friday, Cox wrote that i^ybur help has been invalu- ' able. Without it, we would be weeks behind." •;!•;• In a reference to criticism of their handling of the case, COX said: "Lawyers often differ on ' questions of judgment, and there are points on which my judgment might have varied from yours. Thus far in the investigation, however, none of us have seen anything to show that you did not pursue your professional duties according to your honest judgment and in complete good faith." In a letter of resignation to Cox, the three prosecutors said, "Not until alter the successful prosecution of the seven defendants did a single witness step forward with material information except for one bookkeeper • ed knowledge. t' "In the absence of suffi- ;• cient evidence to charge any- I'one other than the seven defendants and in light of the ^refusal of any of the defendants and others to talk, we decided, prior to Sept. 15, and '"•. . . told defense counsel, that .Jlwe would follow the strategy £-pf convicting the seven de ; ; fendants, granting them limit- ed immunity after trial, and ;; then compelling their testimo- <* ny before the grand jury con- v'cerning the involvement of others." Associated Press WASHINGTON - Special prosecutor Archibald Cox has received differing staff dpi* nions on the legal questions of whether the Watergate grand jury can force President Nixon to testify and whether it can indict him. A spokesman fbr the special prosecutor's office said Friday Cox has not decided which opinions he feels are correct and probably would not decide unless the prosecutors reach a point in their Watergate investigation where they believe they need Nixon's testimony. "No public action is con- Moody oysters grow faster When happy CONWAY, Wales (AP) Scientists at a government experimental station here have discovered that oysters have moods. i \ The- scientists Have found by monitoring ; 'the heartbeat of the; crustaceans that they grow plumper and faster when they ar^ happy. templated on the legal questions in the near future," said James Doyle, the pr secutor's spokesman. Ousted White House Counsel John W. Dean 111 has tes* tified he told the President about the Watergate cover-up last September and that Nix* on participated in it. Nixon on May 21! issued a statement denying he knew of the cover-up before March 21 of this year. ,, Cox told a news conference June 18 that he had asked his staff to study the legal questions involved but cautioned, "It would be wrong to draw any inference from that." Doyle said Cox now has received "a set of memoranda reaching divergent c o n c 1 u- sions" on indicting or subpoenaing the President. He declined to say whether any private inquiries had been made to the W h i t e House concerning the President's availability. Sen. Howard H. Baker Jr., R-Tenn., vice chairman of the Senate Watergate committee, appealed Friday to the President to give a sworn account of his meetings with Dean. In a television interview, Baker also said he does not believe the committee can compel the President to testl* fy. Gerald L. Warren, White House spokesman, said In San Clement* Thursday that it would be constitutionally inappropriate for the President to respond to a subpoena from the committee. Warren said Nixon would not appear voluntarily. Melvin R. Laird, new presidential adviser for domestic affairs, had said the President would respond to accusations about Watergate at a news conference. Baker, who said he hoped some way could be found for Nixon to submit a sworn statement, said he thought a news conference would be the worst forum for a presidential response. The Constitution contains no provision specifically granting a president immunity from being summoned by either a grand jury or Congress. Sen. Sam J. Ervin Jr., chairman of the Watergate Committee, contends no such immunity exists. In the only cage where a president was subpoenaed, Thomas Jefferson refused to honor a sumritotts to testify at Aaron Burr's treason trial. Jefferson did supply the court the evidence it wanted, a let* ter in his possession. "fo comply with such calls would leave the nation with* out an executive branch,'* Jefferson said. Chief Justice John Marshall allowed Jefferson to ignore the subpoena but at the same time declared, "A subpoena may be issued to a president.'' The question has never been tested further in court.
