President Spiro Agnew may take
legal action soon to try to stop or
limit any legal proceedings

scheduled to speak today in St.
Charles, Ill. He is expected then
to discuss the Watergate affair
but not his. own problems stem-
ming from an alleged kickbacks
investigation, which concerns the
time when he was governor of
Maryland from 1966 to 1968 be-
fore becoming President Nixon's
The Baltimore Sun quoted Ju-
dah Best, one of the Vice Presi-
dent's lawyers, as saying that a
court injunction might be sought
to try to block "leaks" in the
press about various aspects of
the investigation or to have the
case thrown out altogether on
the grounds that "constant dis-
closures" had eliminated t h e
chances of a fair trial.
Best said no final decision had
been made but that some court
action might come soon.
BOTH AGNEW AND NIXON
have publicly blasted disclosures
about the ,investigation and at
Nixon's direction, the Attorney
General, Elliott Richardson; is
conducting a probe into charg-
es that the "leaks" have come
from the Justice Department or
official of the U.S. Attorney's
Office working on the case.
Best said that leaks of al-
legations made to prosecutors
about Agnew appeared to be de-
liberate and systematit. He add-
ed he would like to see the court
issue an order providing for con-
tempt proceedings against the
informers before any evidence is
presented by the prosecutors to
the Baltimore Grand Jury.
Counsel said he had no con-
fidence that the Justice Depart-
ment would be able to maintain
the traditional secrecy of the
Grand Jury proceedings.
SYNDICATED columnists Row-
land Evans and Robert Novak
said that the two-hour private
talks which Agnew had with the
President at the White House
last Saturday amounted to a de-
claration of political independ-
ence from Nixon and a deter-
mination to oppose any attempt
to force him from office.

Cambodian troops regain
PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (1P)
- Government troops drove
communist-led insurgents yester-
day from key areas of a provin-
cial capital that has been under
siege since last month's halt of
American bombing, the Cani-
bodian command said.
Communist-led insurgents kept
up a murderous shelling of the
city of 70,000, Kampong Cham,
and many houses reportedly
were in flames.
Thousands of residents fled the
city. Field reports confirmed by
the Cambodian command said
that in suburban and residential
areas controlled by the insur-
' gents, residents were being taken
away "into the jungle."
THE GOVERNMENT said its
troops recaptured the university
complex and other important
parts of the city, about 50 miles
northeast of the capital of Phnom
Reports from the city varied,
but the situation appeared to

the battle. Two battalions of the
reinforced Cambodian army units
fought their way into the city
from the airport to the north.
"The situation is improving,"
the command spokesman said.
However, casualties were re-
ported to be heavy on both sides.
