Jacobsen More Newspapers Ask Resignation By The Associated Press Additional newspapers which . in the past supported President .: Nixon have called for his'resig- l nation in the wake of his admission that he withheld Water: gate evidence from Congress, the American public and his . own lawyers. The Indianapolis Star, however, counseled a-gainst im- : peachment of the President on the grounds that all of the evidence on which a decision can ' be made might not be available as yet. : The San Francisco Chronicle, which endorsed Nixon in his 1968 and 1972 presidential cam, paigns, said in today's editions: '·' "We, too. speak as a friend of · '. the President to say that the ' loss of confidence in his author'. ity to lead in public affairs is S' so deep and so undermining .- that he should reconsider the ; refusal lo resign lhat he has so .- far persisted in. ': "If the impeachment vote in : the House is lopsided, as it now 'gives every sign of being, his · resignation after that vote is '· taken would spare him and the : country a long, agonizing, par- · alyzing tria! in the Senate. It is ,: no doubt a bitter thought, but is · no longer unthinkable." The Tulsa Daily World, not- : ing it had supported the Presi- -; dent in many previous adversities, said: " ... Resignation now would -" be merciful to both the President and the country, sparing everyone the wrenching im. peachment ordeal. ; "We do not find resignation an easy or a happy choice -- · merely the best one available." The Kansas City Star, which also supported the President, said the President's resignation : would be "one last 'great service for his country, for his party and for himself and his fami- ' ly.... "If Mr. Nixon does not resign, then his impeachment must be voted quickly in the House of Representatives. He should then be brought to speedy trial in the Senate. On the basis of his statement Monday -- and it amounted lo a confession -- the Senate should vote for his removal from of- (CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE) sen said he would have no comment. His lawyer, Charles McNeils, said he had no idea when' Jacobsen would be sen- enced. Earlier this year the Watergate prosecutors obtained an "ndiclment against Jacobsen for aerjury, accusing him of lying in testimony that cleared Connelly of taking the $10,000. That indictment was dismissed on a technicality. The indictment against Connally charges, that he and "Jacobsen conspired to fabricate a phony story to cover up the alleged bribe, and to plant $10,000 in cash in Jacobsen's safe denosite box, where Jacobsen swore it had been all along. Federal investigators subsequently reported lhat at least 34 of the bills in the safe deposit box were not issued by the Federal Reserve system until after the time Jacobsen had sworn he had received them. Connally has said Jacobsen offered him the money as a fund from which he could make political contributions. Connally said he refused to take the money on grounds that he was a Democrat in a Republican administration and coujdn't ·give gracefully to either party. M. J. WILLIAMS Springdale -- M. J.
