But Sirica said he would stay his decision if the President’s lawyers appeal the decision as expected. Cover-Up Trial The tapes are being sought by Jaworski as evidence for the Watergate cover-up conspiracy trial involving seven former White House and Nixon re-election committee aides. Sirica ordered the White House to prepare an index and analysis of what is contained on the tapes to be turned over, including any claims the President wants to make to keep portions of the tapes confidential. Sirica followed a similar course last year when Nixon’s lawyers fought a subpoena for the tapes of nine conversations. In that case, Sirica upheld claims of privilege for two complete conversations and portions of a third. “The originals of all subpoenaed items will accompany the index and analysis when transmitted to the court,” Sirica’s nine-page order said. ‘‘In addition, a separate tape recording I— copies from the originals — containing only those portions of conversations since transcribed and made public should be prepared and delivered along with the subpoenaed materials.” Year’s Period Jaworski asked the court on April 16 to issue a subpoena for the 64 conversations spanning a year’s period between June 20, 1972 and June 4, 1973. Sirica ordered the subpoena two days later and on May I the White House asked that the subpoena be quashed. Sirica heard arguments on the issue a week ago and Monday rejected the President’s arguments. “His attempt to abridge the special prosecutor’s independence with the argument he cannot seek evidence from the President by court process is a nullity,” Sirica said in an eight-page opinion. Sirica said he would examine all the material privately and would provide the cover up defendants “with any and all exculpatory material that may be found.” He said he would also deliver to Jaworski "any and all nonprivileged matter” that he finds. Conner May Give Evidence Against Nowlin By Roland Krekeler ANAMOSA — An attorney for Atwell Junior Conner said Monday there is a “strong possibility” his client may turn state’s evidence against George Junior Nowlin in connection with the March Hi murder of two Cedar Rapids teenagers.

Newsweek magazine reported Sunday. “As of this moment, he is not court last week, he concluded that Watergate prosecutors had made “no promise of leniency’’ and said the evidence showed Reinecke had cooperated “at his own risk.” Among other things, Reinecke is accused of perjury about when he told John Mitchell, about to resign.” Coldwater|former attorney general and said. “But if he begins to see {manager of President Nixon’s tin that there is no way out, I think that rather than put the country through two or three months of televised horror, he should G O I seriously consider stepping down.” Coldwater was asked if he would be part of a G.O.P. delegation asking Nixon to resign. “I know of no reason now, in the middle of May, for me or anyone else lo go and ask him,” hi said. “If I became that this should be done, have no qualms about doing it. But I don’t think the time is here yet.” Reinecke Charge Meanwhile, in a Watergate-related case, a federal judge refused Monday lo dismiss perjury charges against LL Gov. Ed Reinecke of California or to transfer his trial from Washington to the West Coast. Judge Barrington Parker said Rcinceke had not provided sufficient evidence to support his (barges that he had been improperly induced by special Watergate prosecutors to provide evidence that could Im* used against him in his trial, tentatively set to begin July 15.
