N'ixon and the indictment of his top aides were nearly complete. In one of two letters to Ally. Gen. William B. Saxbe, 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 Ihought that there may be some rela lion between my resignation and that issue." "For me to procure an dictment 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; fact, it would he tantamount to unprofessional conduct and violalive of my responsibility as prosecutor and officer of the court." EFFECTIVE OCT. 25 Jaworski submitted his resignation effective Oct. 25.

(TIMESphoto hy Ken Good) Wheat Farmers Determined Holdout Meets Test HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) -'The Great Wheat Holdout" las met its severest test and leld firm. In the week following the cancellation by President Ford of a Russian wheat deal, Amerca's wheat farmers are show- ng continued determination to vithhold a substantial part of their 1974 crop from the market. The aim is to develop a mar- let in which the farmers control the price hy controlling the supply. This was the first real test and they didn't panic," said erald Frazier, president of the massive Union Equity grain dealership in Enid, Okla. "They're holding on a little tighter." Faced with tight grain supplies, President Ford last weekend maneuvered a cancellation of a $500 million Soviet grain deal with two major American dealers. He also clamped on partial export lid, requiring dealers to get government ap- To Cut Energy Consumption Voluntary Cooperation Sought WASHINGTON (AP) -- Uncle Sum wants you, again--this lime to enlist in President Ford's War on VVaste to save energy and fight inflation. It remains to be seen whether Americans will save gasoline nnd home-heating fuels as readily as they once saved tin cans, aluminum foil and animal fal during World War II. But Ford, having turned down tougher proposals for enci'gy taxes, is relying on the public's voluntary cooperation to reduce energy consumplion. He hopes the nation can cut one million barrels per day from its imports of foreign oil by the end of next year. Federal Energy Administrator John C. Sawhill says it 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 meas- --Reduce temperature set- lings on hot water heaters. --Turn off furnace pilot lights in summer. --Wash laundry with cold wa- Bul voluntary conservation will work, Ford said, if Americans just follow these rules: --Drive at least 5' per cent fewer miles, to save some 250,000 barrels of oil daily, and increase the savings still more by car-pooling, riding bikes or walking. --Turn down heating thermostats in winter and use less air conditioning in summer. --Keep vehicle engines tuned and: maintain proper tire pressure to improve mileage, ter --Ride public transportation and 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 the use of non-essential appliances. --Turn off outdoor gas lights. Ford said airlines could help by increasing loads, a move requiring federal cooperation in changing routes and schedules; architects could help by desi'gn- ing energy-saving buildings. Home owners also can im- pfove building insulation and commercial buildings can cul lighting, heating and air conch'' tioning. And Ford urged those willing to do even more to clip out a form printed in many news papers and mail it to him. Those who do will he making this pledge: "I enlist as an In Malion Fighter and Energy Sav er for the duration. I will do very best I can for Amer ica."

News of the White House re- triction on grain exports aused a short flurry of selling y farmers, but grain dealers nd elevator operators in the vheat belt said the holdout irmcd up quickly. Dealers estimate farmers are till holding between 50 and 60 jer cent of the 1.7 billion-bushel 974 wheat crop. Usually by his time, they have sold about 10 per cent of the crop. "We had only a few panic the other day (when the Soviet deal vas canceled)," Banning, general said, Frank manager of prici farn the Mid-Continent Farmer's Co op in Oklahoma City. "They've seen this happen before and knew what it could do to the iricc. But as a whole, the mers held firm." He called ttic presidential action "the first test" of the holdout 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.

Rockefeller Takes Blame Presidential Tapes To Be Introduced WASHINGTON (AP) -- From 3,000 miles away, Richard M. Nixon may have a' bigger impact on the Watergate cover-up trial than any person or pieca of evidence that goes before'tha jury. First, there are the lapes.- The jury will hear hours and hours of conversations with Nixon's voice as well as those of the five defendants and other, principals in the case. Watergate prosecutors plan to introduce 33 separate presir dential conversations. Handling the government's case in court will be assistant prosecutor Richard Ben-Ve- niste, as had been planned-be- Core. Ben-Veniste's chief, special prosecutor Leon Jaworski, announced Saturday he was resigning. Because the courtroom testi-i mony may be conflicting, tha Nixon tapes will add up to the most important block of evidence in the trial. Witnesses such as former, White House counsel John W.- Dean III, whose credibility has been an issue, would ordinarily, be troublesome additions to tha prosecution's case. But when augmented by Nixon's voice in conversations with' Dean or when the former President discusses on tape events about which Dean testifies, the tapes become a kind of check and balance, a second method for the jury to decide if they; believe. Dean's' testimony. While Nixon was resting his phlebitis-stricken left leg at his seaside estate in San Clemenle, Calif., last week, hundreds of potential jurors in Washington were being asked if Nixon's pardon would affect their ability to return a guilty verdict against the defendants in tha case, in which Nixon is among 19 unindicted co-conspirators. MANY ANSWER YES NEW YORK (AP) -- Vice resident-designate Nelson A. Rockefeller took full responsibility Saturday for publication a book he admitted was dc- ogatory to former Supreme ourt Justice Arthur J. Golderg, his opponent for the New 'ork governorship in 1970. The book, written by colum- ist Victor. Lasky, appeared uring the campaign but it was earned only this week that its ublication had been financed y the then-governor's brother, aurance Rockefeller. Nelson Rockefeller said in a tatement Oct. 10 that he had een unaware of this and would ave opposed it. However, in a telephone con- ·ersation with Goldberg Satur- lay, Rockefeller said "it is quite clear that when the proj- ct was brought to my atten- ion, I should have immediately aken steps to see to it that it was stopped as utterly alien to ind incompatible with the standards I have always fried o observe in my political life. "I take full responsibility for he whole regrettable episode." The vice president-designate sent a copy of his apology by elegram to Goldberg, but declined to say what the reaction of his 1970 opponent had been. Rockefeller began his conversation by telling Goldberg "I watched you on TV last night ·md I totally understand and sympathize with your indignation. You hereby have my CONTINUED ON PAGE TWO! M a n y answered yes--so many that the prosecutors worried that defense lawyers might Dick a jury of persons unwilling :o convict, even if the evidence were strong enough. Of course, it is not publicly, known how many of the 12 jurors finally chosen--they ara largely middle-aegd, m i d d l e class, and female--believe it is unfair to prosecute some of Nixon's closest former aides, while the ex-president goes free. '·-· However, the danger of a. stacked jury was severe enough' that U.S. District Judge John J. Sirica devised a special method for the final round advantage. Last week, former Whita House chief of staff H.R. Haldeman became the second of tha defendants to declare his intention of subpoenaing Nixon as a witness. Nixon's testimony is already being sought by former White House domestic affairs chief John D. Ehrlichman. who wants the former president to back up Ehrlichman's claim lhat he unsuccessfully urged Nixon to make a full public di- closure.on the original Watergate break-in within a few weeks after the break-in occurred. Sources familiar with Ehrlichman's defense strategy have said his lawyers will try to show that Haldeman and Nixon kept Ehrlichman in the dark for months on the real reason why the original investigation into the break-in was (CONTQJITED ON PAGE TWO) Inside Sunday's TIMES UA Recrenlion Center 2A Memories Of A Meat Market ID Military In SE Asia 7B America's Early Settlers 5A Look-Alike For The President? ~4D Country Club Fashion Show - IB Editorial 4A Entertainment 4D ForWomen 1B-3B Classified 5D-7D Sports 1C-6C Book Reviews 5B
