Senate and house leaders canceled plans to start the monthlong recess Friday night after the house killed a 60-day delay of the cutoff. The administration had said passage of the delay would have avoided a veto. Democratic leader O’Neil (Mass.) told the house Ford’s veto “is expected sometime over the weekend” and announced the house would reconvene Tuesday. The senate is to act Wednesday. At the White House, however, spokesman Larry Speakes said Ford does not intend to act on the bill over the weekend. Speakes said he had no immediate guidance on when the President may act. “Won’t Back Down” WASHINGTON (AP) - Mexico apparently has struck rich oil formations in land along the Gulf of Mexico, the Washington Post said today. It said an American oil company geologist who has been analyzing industry intelligence about the find described it as “exciting enough to be another Persian Gulf of petroleum.” President Ford is expected to discuss additional petroleum shipments when he meets with Mexican President Echeverria Oct. 21, although state department officials say this was not the reason for setting up the meeting in the first place, the Post said The newspaper said the discovery was in the states of Tabasco and Chiapas, some 800 miles south of Houston. It said preliminary estimates place the potential yield at up to 20 billion barrels of high grade oil — double the amount believed to be under Alaska’s North Slope. U.S. experts, the newspaper said, estimate that Mexico could boost its oil exports from 200,000 'barrels a day in 1975 to almost two million a day by 1980. The White House announced The U.S. now imports about Tuesday that Ford would veto six million barrels a day, much the Turkish aid ban if no com- of it from Arab sources in the promise could be reached and Persian Gulf area. his press secretary, Ron Nessen, said Friday, “I can assure you he is not going to back down.” The resolution enacted by congress would halt all U.S. aid shipments to Turkey until Ford could certify “substantial progress” toward an agreement on withdrawing Turkish troops from Cyprus and could certify Turkey is not in violation of U.S. foreign aid laws. Some opponents of the aid say Ford could not certify Turkey’s compliance at all because of her use of U.S. aid weapons to invade Cyprus. Others contend she would not be in compliance until her forces are withdrawn from Cyprus. The state department has refused to say what would constitute compliance. Stopgap Resolution Mexico nationalized oil operations some time ago. A government corporation known as Pe-troleos Mexicanos, or PEMEX, directs the industry. Tile Post said PEMEX discovered the deposits by drilling deeper in ok) ground that had proved dry in previous drilling.

Rockefeller said he made the full list public because confidential information he submitted to congress and the executive branch was being “leaked piece-, meal to the press, causing the compromising of the privacy of many individuals and misleading interpretations of the facts’” $848,888 Taxes He said all the gifts had been “fully reported as required by the Internal Revenue Code” and he had paid a total of $840,000 in federal and state taxes on them. The gift-giving was detailed Friday night in response to a request from Chairman Cannon (D-Nev.) of the senate rules committee, which is investigating Rockefeller’s qualifications for the vice-presidency. The Washington Post said Saturday that in his tax returns Rockefeller also reported a $10,000 gift to Joan Braden, wife of a syndicated newspaper columnist, Thomas Braden. She was not mentioned in the list of gift recipients issued by Rockefeller. Congressional sources said reports of the gifts prompted a house judiciary subcommittee to request renewal of an FBI in Hazel C Becker, 83, of Long f* inU>    activi- %.i I    ties to answer questions not cov ered in initial FBI investigation reports. WASHINGTON (AP) - Leon Jaworski resigned Saturday as special Watergate prosecutor.

Steams oil painting in 1971 “to hang in the conference room of the justice department.” Rockefeller said the painting was returned in 1972. “This transaction was inadvertently reported by my accountant as a gift of $6,500, which has been corrected,” Rockefeller said. Official List The list of public officials and ! staff members issued by Rockefeller and the amount each received : Richard Aldrich, $18,187; G. Russell Gark, $215,000; Henry Diamond, $100,006; James G a y n o r , $107,000; Kissinger, $50,000; Edward tague, $31,389; Alton Marshall, $306,867. L.

Jaworski said he found nothing in the charter establishing the special prosecutor’s office that would take precedence over the presidential power to pardon. He gave no indication in his letters that the pardon had prompted his resignation. Recommends Ruth The Texas lawyer recommended to Saxbe that Henry Ruth, deputy special prosecutor, be named to succeed him. Jaworski was named special prosecutor Nov. I, 1973, the same day Nixon appointed Saxbe attorney general to succeed Elliot Richardson. Richardson had resigned rather than comply with Nixon’s order to fire Archibald Cox as special prosecutor.
