S. District Judge John Sirica has decided to wait for a direct appeal from Richard Nixon before deciding if the former President is healthy enough to testify at the Watergate cover-up trial. Although Nixon’s health was cited in a defendant's request for delay of the trial which Sirica turned down Friday, the issue is expected to come up again before it begins Oct. I. Sirica turned down a request WASHINGTON (AP) - An j Organization of American States 'foreign ministers’ meeting has been called for Nov. 8 in Quito, Equador, to determine if the Cuban embargo should be ended. The OAS permanent council voted 21 to 0 Friday night to convene the meeting. In supporting the resolution offered by Colombia, Costa Rica and Venezuela, American Ambassador William Mailliard said United States willingness to “reexamine the matter does not imply a judgment on a substance of the issue.” A two-thirds majority of the for a 60-to-90-day delay from 21 nations will be required to former White House aide John overturn the 10-year-old OAS Ehrlichman. ban on diplomatic and trade „ ,    „. . ,    .. 4U    relations with Cuba.

The Jaworski suggestion to Sirica was temporarily voided when Sirica turned down Ehr-lichman's request for delay. But next week it is expected that Miller will make an effort to persuade Sirica that his client should not be required to testify. In an unrelated civil case in California, Miller said Nixon would suffer personal hardship if required to give a sworn de-; position. The plaintiffs’ attorney guay and Paraguay said Cuba has not abandoned its interventionist policies and pledged to provide documentary evidence to back up their charge. Bolivian Delegate Jose Juan Loria said any evidence of con-, tinuing intervention would be! sufficient cause for his govern-' ment to vote to prolong the em-; bargo. But diplomats said there are about 14 or 15 countries in the; anti-embargo bloc, enough to bring about a new era in Cuba’s relations with its hemispheric neighbors.

Strachan Denial In a 5 to I decision, the court said it is up to Sirica to decide if he can find 12 jurors — from among a potential pool of 1,000 persons — who are not biased against the defendants. The appeals court also denied a request from defendant Gordon Strachan, a former White House aide, that charges against him be dismissed. The judges said that, while Strachan’s arguments may be legitimate, they should be considered on appeal if he is convicted and the trial, expected to take three months, has been completed. Other defendants are former White House chief of staff H. R.
