Brezhnev on Watergate
MOSCOW - Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev says he doesn't
care much about Watergate, but the continuing scandal appar-
ently moved him to hold his first press conference since taking
power nine years ago. In the sessions with reporters yesterday,
the Communist Party chief brushed aside suggestions that Wat-
ergate might influence his summit talks in Washington with
President Nixon next week. "It does not enter my mind to think
of whether Mr. Nixon has lost or gained influence because of
the affair," Brezhnev said. His U. S. visit starts Monday.
Cash for Teltran
The State Highway Department yesterday announced a
$169,000 grant to the Ann Arbor Transportation Authority (AA-
TA) to aid implementation of the newly approved Teltran bus
system. AATA officials said the funds will go toward purchase
of the 28 new minibuses needed for the Teltran system. An ad-
ditional $638,0OO in federal cash is expected within the next 18

WASHINGTON h(41A frustrated John Connally,
apparently cut off from ready access to President
Nixon, plans to resign soon from his White House
post, Texas political sources here reported yester-
Since joining the Nixon staff May 10 as unpaid,
part-tine adviser, Connally has had only two
private meetings with the President and, the
sources said, their once-close relationship has
become somewhat strained.
CONNALLY IS SAID to have complained to
friends that the White House staff operation, in
the wake of Watergate-related resignations, was a
"screwed-up mess" and that he could not function
One source, personally close to the former
Secretary of the Treasury, said Connally was
likely to quit the White House by mid-July.
It had been understood at the outset that Con-
naly intended to serve as a Nixon adviser for 60
to 90 days.
THE WHITE HOUSE said yesterday Connally
hopes soon to embark on a 60-day trip around the
world with his wife.
Deputy press secretary Gerald Warren, saying
Nixon values Connally's advice, insisted the two
men have "a very close relationship."
On Tuesday morning, it was learned, Connally
phoned friends in Texas to express satisfaction
with the way Nixon's temporary new economic
policy, announced Wednesday night, was shaping
up. The former Democratic governor of Texas,
who became a Republican last month, was said
to have indicated there would be no export con-
trols on farm products-an important consideration
with wheat and cotton interests in his native state.

Greetings to Cambodia
President Nixon bows in return to the formal greeting given him by Um Setara, daughter of Cam-
bodian Ambassador Um Sim, yesterday after her father presented his credentials to Nixon at the
White House. Meanwhile, over in Cambodia itself, U.S. B-52s were in action again for the 100th
