Knight Newspapers. Inc., said. The copyright story appeared in Knight newspapers, including Sunday editions of the Philadelphia inquirer and the Detroit Free Press. It was based on information from members of congress, White House officials and others in the executive branch, the Knight story said. It said White House Chief of Staff Alexander Haig and presidential lawyers J. Fred Buz-hardt and James St. Clair met Monday in the Oval office and told Nixon they and the entire Watergate legal staff would quit if the tapes were not released.

The story said St. Clair first learned of the damaging evidence on July 31 when he began listening to the tapes the supreme court had ordered surrendered to Judge John Sirica. St. Clair informed Haig of the itaped material on Aug. I, and I Haig immediately went to the President, the story said. “It’s fair to say that Haig led la movement for resignation.

Haig and St. Clair allowed one of Nixon's staunchest defenders in the judiciary committee, Rep. Charles Wiggins (R-Calif.i to read the transcripts Aug. 2, apparently without Nixon’s knowledge, the story said. Wiggins said the material was devastating and Nixon had two options, claim the Fifth Amendment and withhold the material or consider resigning, the story said.

Waite, a forecaster in Des Moines, said he thinks the drouth is over, using scientific measurements. But practically speaking, crops still may be in trouble. Some states, like Indiana, got light showers that didn’t last long enough to do much good.

Morton Says History Will Balance Nixon Tragedy with Achievements By Dale Kueter WEST BRANCH—Secretary of the Interior Rogers C. B. Morton said Saturday that “history will be fair to Richard Nixon and balance the tragedy of this hour with the long list of his achievements ” Morton spoke to an estimated 7,000 persons on the final day of a week-long commemoration program on the 100th anniversary of Herbert Hoover’s birth. Morton took the rostrum slightly more than three hours after his first cabinet meeting with President Ford. The podium was the one that former President Nixon would have used if his appearance hadn’t been cancelled during the week in which events culminated in his resignation The audience applauded Morton after his forecasts on how history will treat Nixon. He said he believed Nixon resigned truly believing it to be in the best interests of the nation. “I extend to hun and his family my compassion and prayers and also express to him my deep gratitude for the privilege and high honor of serving in his cabinet.” Morton said the orderly transfer of power and position to President Ford “is proof of the strength of our presidency and the institution of our government. Every American can have confidence in his country and pride in our Constitution." Then departing from prepared remarks, Morton said. “If we in America will have confidence in what we can be, there is no reason why we should fear for the future of this great nation. “It is a nation bound togo t h e r by the spiritual strength of strong, creative, freedom-loving people ” Morton told newsmen that he wasn't running for vicepresident , but that he wouldn’t decline it if the new President asked him Morton’s name is one of a number mentioned for vice-president.
