Prosecutor Leon Jaworski saying that his work was largely finished an nounced Saturday he would resign Oct 25 Although the timing of the announcement came as a it has been known for eorne time that Jaworski wanted to return to his native Texas as soon as the major tasks of the special prosecutor were com pleted In a letter of resignation to Alty Gen William B Saxbe Jaworski noted that the Watergate coverup trial pro bably the prosecutions last major undertaking was now in progress under the guidance of associated special prosecutor James F Neal A jury of nine women and three men was sequestered in that case late Saturday Jaworski had not been expected to appear for the prosecution at the trial In a separate letter to the at torney general his immediate nuperior Jaworski took pains to dispel any thought that his resignation was related to the pardoning of Richard M Nixon Will leave Oct 25 asks Henry S Ruth be appointed says bulk of work finished by President Ford He also recommended to Sax be that Henry S Ruth who has served as deputy special pro secutor since May of 1973 be considered to succeed him after the resignation takes effect Oct confidence that such of our responsibilities as remain un fulfilled can well be completed under the leadership of another special prosecutor Among the inquirires known to be continuing are those into the allegations of improper or il legal political contributions by the International Telephone and Telegraph Company and dairy interests and possible expen ditures of campaign funds for Nixons personal benefit The former President however is exempted from federal prosecution for any criminal acts committed while in officer under the terms of the full and unconditional pardon granted his last month by President Ford

now been discharged and he expressed tions against the former President Jaworski dismissed in his let ter to Saxbe urgings from some quarters that he indict Nixon for his alleged role in the Watergate coverup as a means of testing in court the constitutionality of the pardon To do so he said would be intellectually dishonest on his part and would constitute a spurious proceeding in which I had no faith in fact it would be tantamount to unprofessional conduct and violative of my responsibility as prosecutor and officer of the court Jaworskis predecessor Archibald Cox was dismissed as the first Watergate special pro secutor last Oct 26 during what has been called the Saturday Night Massacre Jaworski was named special Lyndon B Johnson and former Texas Gov John B Con nally But Jaworski quickly won the loyalty of his staff by refusing to accept White House efforts to limit his access to Watergate evidence The climactic battle in that confrontation was joined on April 16 when Jaworski asked Sirica for a subpoena com manding Nixon to turn over tapes and documents sought as evidence in the coverup trial The case went to the Supreme Court which issued an order on July 24 directing Nixon to obey the subpoena Two weeks later Nixon resigned after the Judiciary Committee impeachment votes and Nixons disclosure of a tape that linked him to the coverup in the days immediately after the June

Times News Service And Associated Press New York Vice Presidentdesignate Nelson A Rockefeller took full responsibility Saturday for the publication of a derogatory biography of Arthur J Goldberg
