Henry S. Ruth Jr., who served a year as Watergate special prosecutor after Archibald Cox was fired and Leon Jaworski resigned, died in Tucson on March 16 after a stroke, his wife, Deborah Mathieu, said. He was 80. Ruth investigated organized crime for the Justice Department before joining the Watergate investigation in 1973 as Cox's chief deputy. When Cox was fired later that year during the infamous Saturday Night Massacre, Ruth rallied the staff and preserved the evidence they had collected in the corruption probe that ultimately led to President Nixon's resignation in 1974.

John Ashcroft still heads the Department of Justice, though. I can't think of a stronger case for an independent counsel than this one. As for Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill's statements (Jan. 14), I can't think of a stronger case for stopping the deregulation of the energy markets. Look at the airlines and the savings and loan debacle.

Allies of embattled House Speaker Jim Wright (D-Tex.) began a public relations counteroffensive Thursday, charging that he is a victim of "nouveau McCarthyism" directed by the special counsel of the House Ethics Committee. The allegation was made by George A. Mallick Jr., Wright's chief benefactor and controversial Texas business partner, in a telephone interview with The Times. Another backer of Wright's, Ft.
