WASHINGTON (CP) Resignation, a subject which had Capitol Hill in an uproar when it concerned President Nixon, is back as a main topic of debate now that it concerns State Sec- retary Henry Kissinger. The irony is that whereas Nixon confounded his enemies by refusing to quit. Kissinger is confounding his friends by threatening to leave. Nixon argued that to resign would be to injure the United States internationally, showing that the country was weak in leadership. Kissinger, on the other hand, says that attacks on his credibility at home impair his effectiveness abroad. While there is a strong body of opinion that Nixon should step down, even Kissinger's strongest critics appear to have become unnerved at the prospect that the secretary would resign. REACTION MIXED Reaction have ranged from that of Senator Jacob Javits (Rep. N.Y.) that Kissinger should get a good night's sleep to that of Senator George Aiken (Rep. who says in effect that if the secretary can't stand the heat, he should get out of the kitchen. There is evidence that Javits' the secretary is tired and run down after his marathon efforts in Middle East be close to the mark. Coming off 33 days of tough talks with the Svrians Israelis and the Soviets. Kissinger flew back to the U.S. to brief the president and various congressional bodies. He came back to a hero's welcome, only to have the adulation shattered by tough questioning by reporters concerning his testimony on wretapping before a Senate committee. There was no respite in sight. He left almost immediately to return to the Middle East with Nixon. From there he flies to Ottawa next week for NATO talks, rejoining the president on his arms-talks trip to Moscow. That Kissinger has pushed himself to the brink by overwork in the past is noted by Nelson Rockefeller in an inter- view with the New York Post. When they worked together 20 years ago, Rockefeller is quoted, "Kissinger subsisted on five or six hours sleep a night." As the pressure? built up, Kissinger threatened several times to resign. Finally, Rockefeller took him up on it. "And, of course, this was the most frustrating thing in the world to him.... and in about two months, he came back." Observers here are inclined to go along with the suggestion that Kissinger may be ex- hausted. They point to the emotional a man noted for his persuasiveness with the his Washington news conference last Thursday. U.S. state secretary to attend NATO meeting OTTAWA U.S. State Secretary Henry Kissinger is to fly here from the Middle East next week in time for the start of the NATO foreign ministers' meeting, at which all 15 member-countries are expected to be represented. A U.S. embassy spokesman said Wednesday that Mr. Kis- singer will arrive from the Middle he is touring with President Monday night. The two-day conference opens Tuesday. A Canadian spokesman said the secretary probably will meet External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp briefly, perhaps over breakfast or lunch. But a full-scale meeting be- tween Mr. Sharp and Mr. Kis- singer has been put off until after the July 8 federal election. Mr. Sharp is also scheduled to take advantage of the NATO meeting to hold private talks with newly-installed foreign ministers from France. West Germany and Norway. And he will meet Portugal's new foreign minister, Mario Scares, to discuss possible Ca- nadian aid to Portuguese Afri- can colonies. The government has been preparing to offer aid to anti- colonial forces in the colonies indirectly through private aid groups in Canada. Meantime, however, a peaceful coup d'etat in Portugal has opened the possibility of direct aid to the colonies by the Canadian International Development Agency with the approval of a Portuguese government now ready to negotiate independence for its African territories. The NATO conference, marking the 25th anniversary of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, is expected at least to initial a new statement on the aims and principles of the alliance. But it is apparently still undecided whether the document will be formally signed at the conference, or later by heads of government.

With oil company officials already wincing at a bill Tuesday empowering the province to allocate fuel supplies during emergencies, Wednesday's companion piece was expected to cause further consternation in the industry. Finance Minister Peter Nicholson, who introduced the, measure in the absence of Premier Gerald Regan, said the bill tightened up provisions of similar legislation passed last De- j cernber. j The bill prohibits price in- I creases in fuel oil and gasoline by a wholesaler or retailer without approval of the Board of Public Utilities. Under the earlier legislation, prices could be raised but the wholesaler was required to appear before the board to justify the increase. The board had the power to order a rollback of increases it found unjustified. ORDERS ROLLBACK Imperial Oil Canada Ltd. was ordered to roll back the price of heavy fuel oils after a board hearing earlier this year. It is challenging in the courts the right of the board to make the order. However. Wednesday's bill removes any question of the legality of the first piece of legislation, answering oil- company arguments about the board's authority. Under the legislation in- troduced Wednesday, a com- pany intending to increase prices must file an application with the board, which in turn must call a hearing within 90 da vs. nirersity students lose fire TOKONTO university graduates will be a blessing to their future em- ployers, says -John Crispo.
