Judge Might Set Ruling on Nixon Pardon WASHINGTON (UPI) A federal judge said Monday lliat ic might be willing to rule on the legality of (he full pardon granted former President Nixon Mid the validity of the agrec- nent giving Nixon custody of lis presidential tapes. At an hour-long hearing on wo Watergate civil cases, Judge Charles Richey said the pardon and the controversial apes pact raise "substantial" questions that could have an im- )act on the upcoming cover-up .rial. "The thought occurs to the court in thinking about it over the weekend that it might be desirable to have a trial court resolve the question of the va- lidity of the agreement and the validity of the Itichcy said. Such a challenge was filed ast Friday by Watergate bur- glar James McCord but was dis- missed by Richey on technical grounds. McCord's lawyer, Bernarc Fcnsterwald, refilcd the suii Monday. It charged that Pres- ident Ford's pardon of Nixon for any and all crimes committee during his presidency was "ille gal and unconstitutional." McCord and R. Spencei Oliver, the only Democratic party official whose phone was successfully bugged at the Wa tergate, are suing for damages stemming from that incident They have subpoenaed the White House for various tapes to support their cases. But Richey postponed any fui thcr action in those cases until jury is chosen and sequestered in the cover-up trial, due lo starl Oct. 1 before Judge John Sirica. Earlier, former presidenlia aide H. R. Haldeman asked Chief Justice Burger to delay the cover-up trial unlil the suprcmi court can rule on a challenge ti the grand jury.

He also got stormy reception here recently at a meeting involving school busing. Kennedy's major handicap, however, was considered the lhappaquiddick incident and he had said that if he decided to run, he would reveal the details of the accident. Asked Monday if his decision not to run meant he would not answer questions about Chappa- quiddick, Kennedy said no.

This means many fields are behind in maturity or are at .wo stages of maturity." Hall, however, said crops in his county had advanced rapidly within the past week.
