WASHINGTON (AP) The special Watergate prosecutor's office asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation Thursday to serve a subpoena on formei President Nixon in the Water gale cover-up trial that begins Oct. 1. A spokesman for special pros ccutor Leon Jaworski said the subpoena is returnable on the day the trial begins. He said the FBI was asked to deliver it to Nixon at his San Clemcnte, Calif., home because of its liaison with the secret scr vice. Earlier Nixon's health was in- jected into the cover-up trial foi the first time. Attorneys for John. Ehrliclv man Wednesday asked for a 60 lo-90-day delay in'thollrial.

The 64-35 vote means the raises will go into effect Oct. 1 as originally scheduled, since Ford's order to delay them could be overturned by majority vote of either the house or sen- ate. It was his first major con- gressional defeat since becom- ng President on Aug. 9. Ford had proposed the delay in an effort to curb inflation but critics said the stay, which would have saved about million, would have had little or no impact. "Cosmetic Approach" Senator Stevens (R-Alaska) called the three-month deferral "a cosmetic approach" to the anti-inflation battle. "You're not going lo stop in- flation or even slow it down with this kind of said Sen. McGee However, Sen.'

"Set Example" The affected workers include while-collar civilian employes and military personnel. Ford asked the senate to help "set an example of fiscal re- straint for the rest of Ihe na- tion" by upholding his action.

"But, we're going lo beat them yet. We have a second hole drilled near Grant to a depth of feet. All signs a r e extremely good. We should know just how good in the next few days.
