Adheres to high court order

President Nixon pledged yesterday
to comply in all respects with a
Supreme Court order to turn over
documents and tape recordings of
64 conversations for the Watergate
cover-up trial.
His attorney, James St. Clair,
read a statement by Nixon in a na-
tional broadcast and said he would
immediately begin preparing the
tapes and other documents for the
U.S. District Court in Washington.
See related story, Page 3
THE TAPES were subpoenaed by Leon
Jaworski, the Watergate special prose-
cutor, for the trial of some of Nixon's
former top aides.
St. Clair gave no timetable for the.
turnover but spoke of a "time-consum-
ing" process of analyzing and indexing
the tapes.
The President, who had consistently
declined to say in advance whether he
wold abideby an adverse court ruling,
said through St. Clair:
"MY CHALLENGE in the courts to the
subpoena of the special prosecutor was
based on the belief that it was unconsti-
tutionally issued, and on my strong de-
sire to protect the principle of presiden-
tial confidentiality in a system of separa-
tion of powers.
"While I am of course disappointed in
the result, I respect and accept the
court's decision and I have instructed
Mr. St. Clair to take whatever measures

Although Kambly claims these tech-
