THE COMMITTEE has directed eight
subpoenas to President Nixon, who has
complied with none.
Asked why the committee was contin-
uing to issue subpoenas when there was
so little chance they would be obeyed,
committee chairman Peter Rodino said,
"I don't know of any other way the
committee can make a proper inquiry.
"If the President refuses to comply
with a proper request fully authorized by
the House, the American people should

two related to the IRS were demanded.

High Court defers
action on evidence
WASHINGTON (A" - The Supreme
Court deferred action yesterday on Pre-
sident Nixon's request for evidence of
the grand jury which listed him as an
unindicted co-conspirator in the Water-
The court said it will not decide until
after a hearing scheduled for July 8
whether the evidence on which the grand
jury acted should be made available to
the President and to the justices.
IN ASKING for such action last week,
presidential attorney James St. Clair
said it was essential in order for the
issues to be fully settled.
The court has agreed to hear argu-
ments on the President's claim of execu-
tive privilege to protect White House
papers and tapes wanted as possible evi-
dence in the Watergate cover-up.
At the same time, at Nixon's request,
it will hear arguments on his conten-
tion that a grand jury lacks the author-
ity to name an incumbent president as
an unindicted co-conspirator.
