Interviews with gop lawmakers also indicate a new juror Over reports that Nixon attacked the credibility of former ally. Gen. Elliot l. Richardson and former watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox. A major unanswered question is How much Nixon s meetings last week with members of Congress mainly Republican has helped him with the american Public. Various republicans said his Effort to get Public support was As important As his persuasion of Congress which might have to decide if he should be impeached. The sharpest attack of the Nixon Effort came from House democratic Leader Thomas p. O Neill jr., a mass.

Several senators said that Nixon flatly accused Richardson flying under oath when he told the Senate judiciary com Mittee his Side of the events leading up to his own resignation and the firing of Cox. The White House denied that Nixon called Richardson liar. Richardson had said that he opposed the Effort to limit Cox s efforts to go to court for other tapes records and memo Randa.

We did not know until saturday he had changed his mind. Cox who had made Clear his opposition to the Compromise immediately after Nixon announced the proposed com Promise Friday oct. 19, said he had never questioned Plennis integrity. For it it worked. Yet. Of All the rationing pro Grams ordered by the govern Mentlo conserve precious War Lime supplies the gasoline pro Gram proved the most difficult to administer. In the words of Chester b. Rowles head of the office of Price administration during he War gasoline rationing offered a dangerously Ripe Field for Black Market the program began nation wide nearly 31 years ago. On dec. 1, 1942, after months of preparation. It lasted until aug. 15, ims. Although supplies were Short at limes during the War. The nation s Industrial War machine never broke Down. Factory workers got to work now. President Nixon is considering gasoline rationing As one Means of combating the fuel shortage variously Coli mated at i4lo 21 per cent. If the old wartime system is used it will mean that Ameri cans will have to get accuse Lomed to a Little paperwork when they pull into a gasoline station. The wartime program was Coupon system. A Coupon o ration stamp issued by government had to be presented to the service station operator when Gas was purchased. Tow Coupon limited the amount o fuel that could be purchased. The Basic gasoline ration dui ing the War was four Gallons week although that figure a changed several limes. And did l apply to All motorists Many got much More. There were three Basic Type of ration books. The a Book could be obtained by any Ca owner and it was designed to who did More than 150 Miles of work related driving a month basically those who had to drive to work. The a Book went to those with War important occupations those who had to travel at least 470 Miles a month. The number of coupons was tailored to fit individual needs. Time to consult Squirrel and Bear this is the time of year when the oracles Are winding up their consultations with the wooly Bear the Squirrel and other assorted Flora and Fauna to find out whether the Winter ahead will be mild severe or just average. Practitioners of this awesome and ancient science the Reading of nature s weather signs have a particularly awesome responsibility his year because of the impending by Dew James fuel shortage and the climate of distrust for those who Bear bad tidings. Bearers of news of any Type lately have not been fairing Loo Well in certain official quarters. President Nixon his speech writer Patrick Buchanan and sonic others in league with the administration have been castigating news people and doing every bit As Good a Job of it As former vice president Spiro Agnew used to do when he was lecturing on Law and order old fashioned Virtues honesty Etc. Perhaps it s Over sensitivity on our part but the president s reaction to All the bad news he s been hearing lately prompts uneasy reflections on the Fate that befell that ancient messenger who brought bad news to his King. The Monarch was so displeased that he had the poor fellow executed on the spot venting his Range on the messenger instead of the but despite the hazards of coming Forth with had news faithful oracles apparently have not been deterred from their appointed rounds of Reading nature s weather signs. From crab Orchard. Tenn. Comes a report that mrs. Helen Lane of that Section who has been scoring pretty Well in her Public weather predictions for 14 years has checked out the signs and is forecasting a harsh Winter. Squirrels in Bur neighbourhood Don t even know enough to get out of the Street to avoid being run Over by a car but for people like mrs. Lane squirrels Are creatures of exceptional . If they put on a Hick fur coat in the fall As they reportedly have done around crab Orchard the Outlook is for a harsh Winter. If they Hoard an excessive Supply of nuts that Means a Long Winter. If they stash their Winter provisions in High hollow Trees that s Ari indication of heavy snows. Mrs. Lane s Check on the wooly Bear found the fuzzy Caterpillar wearing wide Black bands a sure sign of a rough Winter. She also found other Bleak assurances among insects with Asp extra sensory crickets have been hollering a lot spiders Are spinning webs near the ground and hornets have gone in for Low Slung nests. A census of the Frog population around crab Orchard revealed to mrs. Lane exactly How Many snowfalls there will be this Winter. Other readers of the signs count the foggy Days in August to obtain the same information although that particular sign apparently applies Only in colder climates. Such quaint consultations with Mother nature and sear things for her signs May seem a Lille absurd in this age of weather satellites and computerized forecasting. But a whole legion of Folk take the signs seriously. Questioning the Validity of the signs in the presence of believers is As heretical As impugning the nutritive value of Apple pie. The Wisest role for those who May Harbor honest doubts is to assume the role of agreeable listeners in the presence of believers throwing in an occasional you Don t just to demonstrate interest. It is quite possible though hat those who Are Alert to nature s signs retain something that too Many of the urbanized generation have lost. The rhythms of nature her sounds and Subtle changes Are not lost on Are in tune with the orchestrations that accompany the turnings of the seasons. So what if the signs Don t always accurately forecast the weather. The Weatherman in t always right either.
