Jaworski Tax Probe of Dozen Persons: Saxbe WASHINGTON (AP) - The special Watergate prosecutor has been authorized to proceed with tax investigations involving more than a dozen persons, Atty. Gen. Saxbe says. But presidential tax lawyer! Frank DeMarco, the only person identified by Saxbe, said he has not been contacted by anyone from the prosecutor’s office or the justice department. Saxbe told reporters Thursday that special prosecutor Leon Jaworski inquired about a week ago as to whether his jurisdiction covered tax matters and DeMarco, who prepared President Nixon’s tax returns for 1989 through 1972. Saxbe said he told Jaworski that the charter spelling out the prosecutor’s responsibilities was broad enough to cover the issue. Asked by a reporter whether Jaworski might also have authority to investigate Nixon's tax returns, Saxbe replied. “I think that's basically what he asked, isn’t it? Why else did he write me a letter*’” The attorney general also said that Jaworski has asked him several times to request tax-re-turn and other information on .several Watergate figures from the IRS. ‘‘I authorized Mr. Jaworski and requested on Mr. Ja-worski’s behalf information on a dozen or 15 who I have not named,” Saxbe said.

Highway Unit Slates Information Sessions AMES (UPI) — The Iowa highway commission has scheduled two public informational meetings in northeast Iowa later this month to discuss plans for possible n e vv highways through the area. A meeting has been scheduled in Dubuque April 23 to discuss the feasibility and necessity of constructing a highway from Waterloo to Rockford, 111. That evening, a second meeting will be held to discuss the possibility of building a route from Davenport to Dubuque to Lacrosse, Wis. Both meetings will be held in the Dubuque city hall. By P’rank L. Spencer CHICAGO (UPI) - In this season of the Easter bunny, official notice has been taken of a decline of rabbits. But shucks, you say, if there is a rabbit shortage all we have to do is wait awhile, such is their reproductive ability. This biological truth, however, is swiftly being reduced to a theory. Your typical cottontail doe can produce six to nine bunnies every few weeks — the gestation period is 30 days — but she is downright particular about where she produces them. Public Attention According to the Illinois Natural History Survey, which this week brought the rabbit decline to public attention, cottontails require “favorable habitat” to multiply in their accustomed style. And in Illinois, as everywhere else, the bulldozers have been closing in on the rabbit warrens. In Illinois alone, according to the survey experts, there was a decline of almost 5 million acres of “favorable habitat” in one recent four-vear period. During this period, the experts said, the rabbit population dropped 69 percent. And the trend lines in all parts of the country indicate a continued rise in bulldozing, a steady depletion of rabbits. Surely, you say, some group will discover the plight of the cottontail and rush to protect these creatures. Don't bet on it. Few Friends The ordinary rabbit has few real friends. And practically everything is his enemy. Among predators, rabbit is a favorite food. Coyotes, according to a Nebraska study a few years ago, prefer them to chicken. And whatever his reputation for speed, dogs and cats seem to have no trouble outflanking the average cottontail. It turns out that of all his enemies, the one most dangerous to the rabbit way of life is the farmer. Nowadays farmers put every square inch into cultivation. This means no patches of brush for the rabbits. The only people who have expressed much interest in preventing a complete rabbit wipeout are the hunters. They want to keep a few around so they can kill them.
