(TIMESpholo by Chuck Cunningham) , Jaworski Says Investigation Into Watergate Nearly Done WASHINGTON (AP) -- L'eon Jaworski resigned Saturday as special Watergate prosecutor, saying the investigations which have led to the resignation of President-Richard M. Nixon : and the indictment of his top aides/were nearly complete. In one of two letters'to Atty. Gen. William B . ' S a x b e , Jaworski emphatically rejected suggestions that he try to indict Nixon : as a means of challen- ing the. legality of the pardon granted the former president by President Ford Without specifying who had made such suggestions,' Jaworski wrote: "I think it proper'that I express to you my views on this subject to dispel any thought that -there' may be some relation between my resignation and that issue." "For me to procure an indictment of Richard M. Nixon for the sole purpose of generating a purported court test on the legality of the pardon would constitute a spurious proceeding in which I had no faith; in fact, it would be tantamount to unprofessional conduct and violative of my responsibility as prosecutor and officer of the court." EFFECTIVE OCT. 25 Jaworski submitted his resignation effective Oct. 25. The 69-year-old Texas lawyer sent the letters to Saxbe the day after a jury was seated in the trial of five former Nixon administration and campaign aides charged .with having con spired to block the investigation of the Watergate break-in.

(TIAIESpholo by Ken Good) Wheat Farmers Determined Holdout Meets HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) -'The Great Wheat Holdout" las met its severest test and held firm. In the week following the cancellation by President Fordj of a Russian wheat deal, America's wheat farmers are showing continued determination to withhold a substantial part of their 1374 crop from the market. The aim Is to develop a market in which the farmers control the price by controlling the supply. "This was the first real test and they didn't panic," said Gerald Frazier, president of the massive Union Equity grain dealership in Enid, Okla. "They're holding on a little tighter." Faced with tight grain sup plies, President Ford last weekend maneuvered a cancellation of a $500 million Soviet grain deal with two major American dealers. He also clamped on a partial export lid, requiring dealers to get government ap- proval before closing large ex- 1 ort grain'sales. News of the White House restriction' on grain exports caused a short flurry of selling by farmers, but grain dealers and elevator operators in the wheat belt said the holdout firmed up quickly. Dealers estimate farmers are still holding between 50 and CO per cent of the 1.7 billion-bushel 1974 wheat crop.. Usually by this time, they have sold about 80 per cent of the crop. "We had only a few panic the other day (when (he Soviet deal was. canceled)." said Frank Fanning, general manager of To Cut Energy Consumption Voluntary Cooperation Sought WASHINGTON (AP) -- Uncle Siim wants you, again--this lime to enlist in President Ford's War on Waste to save energy and fight inflation. It remains to be seen whether Americans will save gasoline nnd horne-henting fuels as readily as they once saved tin cans, a l u m i n u m foil and animal fat during World War II. Hut Ford, having -. turned down . tougher proposals for energy taxes, is relying on the public's voluntary cooperation to reduce energy consumption. He hopes the nation cnn cut one million bonds per day from its Imports of foreign oil by iho end of nexl year. . Federal Energy Administrator John C, Snwlilll says II should take only a few months to find out whether Ford's appeal to patriotism works; if it doesn't, Ford himself warned on Tuesday, he will move for mandatory fuel-saving measures. But voluntary conservation will work, Ford said, If Americans Just follow these rules: --Drive at least 5 per cent (ewer miles, tn save some 250,000 barrels of oil daily, and Increase the savings still more by car-pooling, riding bikes , or walking. · --Turn ciowh heating thermostats In winter nnd use less air conditioning In summer. --Keep vehicle engines tuned and maintain proper tlr« pressure to improve mileage, --Reduce temperature set- ngs on hot water heaters. --Turn off furnace pilot lights in summer. --Wash laundry with cold water --Ride public transportation ard use car pools, in place of private autos. --Try to reduce the use of s t o v e s , refrigerators, televisions, electric lights and washing machines. --Reduce Ihc use of nun-esson- tlfil appliances, --Turn off ouldoor RHS lights. Fowl said airlines could help by increasing loads, n move requiring federal cooperation In changing routes and schedules; architects could help by designing oncrgy-saving buildings. Home owners also can im prove building insulation and commercial buildings can cut lighting, heating and air conditioning. And Ford urged those willing lo do even more to clip out a form printed in many newspapers and mail it to him. Those who do will be making Ihls pledge: "I enlist as an Inflation Fighter and Energy Saver for Ihc duration. I will do Ihn very best I can for Amer lea," Ford said he would explain whnt he expects of his volun U-cr Inflation Fighters and Energy Savers In a speech Tuesday night. , the Mid-Continent Farmer's Coop in Oklahoma City, "They've seen this happen before" and knew what it could do to the price. But as a- whole, the farmers held firm." He called the presidential action "the first test" of the hold out and noted: "The farmers have been real successful." The holdout started with the first fields harvested last spring in Texas. As the harvest moved northward through the wheat belt, the holdout followed. As late as last month, some Kansas farmers still owned 91) per cent of their crop.
