Northwest Arkansas TIMES, We'd., Aug. 14, 1974 FAY1TTEVILH, ARKANSAS Jaworski To Decide On Nixon Prosecution Issue WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Ford has signaled his intention to stay out of any decision to prosecute Richard M. Nixon for Watergate crimes. The President indicated thai he would leave it up to special Watergate prosecutor Leon Jaworski to decide whether to seek an indictment againt the former president, Ally. Gen. William B. Saxbe said Tuesday after a private meeting with Ford. "He made no statement on it, but I got the feeling that it will just run its course, that he has no intention of intervening one way or the other," Saxbe told reporters. The attorney general said he raised.the jssue with Ford only briefly d u r i n g a session scheduled to inform the new President about pending Justice Department matters. "I told him that this was in Mr. Jaworski's area, that it woilld 1 just have to run its course," the attorney general said as he reaffirmed his own intention !o leave Jaworski free to decide the issue. Â·Legal experts familiar with the Watergate investigation say Nixon couUI face a gamut of criminal charges ranging from obstruction ol justice to subornation of perjury for his role in the scandals. N I X O N N A M E D The. grand jury that indicled Nixon's one-lime advisers, on charges of obstruction of justice in the Watergate cover-ur named Nixon as an unindictec co conspirator after being tcld of the doubtful constitutionality of an indictment against a sit- ing president. Nixon's resignation slrippec him of that shield. Jaworski has said nothing Bbout the possibility of charges against Nixon. On the eve of Nixon's resignation, the prose culor said there was no deal promising Nixon immunity H he quit the presidency. Ford has the constituliona authority to pardon Nixon for nny Watergate crimes even be fore formal charges and a trial Saxbe said he and Ford did nol discuss that possibility.

AP Wirephoto) On Vice Presidential Nominees Speculation May Be Worthless WASHINGTON (AP) -- As speculation about the next vice iresident centers on Nelson A. lockefeller and George Bush, President Ford is described as still not close to making a choice. Rockefeller, Â» former New York governor, is being pushed primarily by liberals or moderates and Bush, the Republican national chairman, mainly by conservatives. However, there is some blurring' oE ideological lines that indicated G9P acceptance of-both possibilities. Despite the speculation, however, there was no indication tat those two were indeed the iront-riuiners. It is still at a very preliminary stage." one Ford associate said:Tuesday morning. "I would,not expect a decision until the end of the week, at the earliest." A similar comment came from Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott, who said. "I think no decision has been made, and I doubt if the President will start reducing the list until at least tomorrow (Wednesday)." Lawmakers close to the new President professed ignorance about who would be named. : Both House Republican Lead er John J. Rhodes of Arizona, who declined to name his per- sonal choice, and Sen. John G. i Tower of Texas, who backs! Bush, named Rockefeller and Bush as the two names receiving the most mention. Rhodes presented sealed envelopes from 121 of the 187 House Republicans to Max Freiersdorf, the chief White House liaison man at the House. Scott gave envelopes from 33 of the 42 Senate Republicans to Tom Korologos, the chief presidential aide at 'lie Senate. In contrast to Rhodes, Scott sted three of his choices --Rockefeller, his .first choice; lush, and Sen. Barry Gold- valer ,of Arizona, who has sup)ort among his fellow Senate onservatives. As he made the presentation f Korologos, two other GOP enators came in with their- en- 'elopes and said Rockefeller yas on their'lists, along with iberal Sen. Charles McC.
