(Studio) Assistant Democratic leader, Senator Robert Byrd, says if grand jury indicts Nixon, no moral alternative to prosecution. Says special prosecutor, Leon Jaworski, has duty to prosecute if evidence warrants it. Nixon raises question in call Monday to thank Tennessee Republican Representative Don Kuykendall for past support.

(Llano, Texas) [KUYKENDALL - tells of asking Nixon how he was and Nixon replied "we will be all right". He asked if people wanted to pick the carcass. Replied Congress not in vengeful mood. Conversation was sad one. Felt he wanted to feel pulse of nation through members Congress he called. Told him country will turn to him again when his expertise needed.]
