   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 12, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                The Cedar Kapids Gazette: Fri., April 12, 1974 'Emotion Guarantees Impeachment T By Kevin Kane A journalist worked for Richard Nixon H years ago said Thursday night he expects the public's current "tidal wave of emotion" over Watergate to re- sult in the President's impeach- ment in the house. But, Alvin Moscow told a Coe college audience, he sees the President neither resigning nor being convicted in the senate if impeached. Moscow, a special campaign assistant for Nixon's unsuccess- ful bid for the California gover- norship in 1962, also helped or- ganize and research Nixon's now-famous book "Six Moscow basically defended the President as a victim of cir- cumstances in the Watergate af- fair, but predicted impeachment on the basis of public sentiment making it harder for congress- Alvin Moscow men to explain why they op- posed impeachment. Asked to clarify his reasoning during a question-and-answer period, Moscow said that most people had formed a "prima facie" case against the Pres- ident and therefore felt Nixon "ought to be impeached and then tried on the evidence." Taking a longer-term view of the Watergate affair, Moscow postulated that historians 20 years from now may merely refer to it as something which "marred the presidency of Richard Nixon." The same historians, Moscow contended, will probably find many positive thingr to say in evaluating Nixon's term of of- fice. Included, he said, could be such things as extricating the United Stales from the Vietnam war, handling detente with China and Russia and (if borne out in time) laying of a founda- tion for a "generation of peace." "If the President succeeds in SALT talks with Russia, we will really have Mos- cow said, predicting future his- torians would consider Nixon "one of the most adept Pres- idents in handling foreign poli- cy."

Major change in the premium book this year will involve the livestock shows which have been expanded to include en- tries from all states which 'border on Iowa.

Naming of Fafher Asked In Adoption Amendment DES MOINES (UPI) The Iowa house Thursday amended legislation rewriting the state's adoption laws to require the names of suspected fathers of children bom out of wedlock and placed up for adoption to be published in local newspapers. Lawmakers voted 60-20 to pro- hibit public disclosure of the mother's name, but reasoned that names of all prospective fa thers must be made public to allow the natural father to claim the child. Rep. Joseph Rinas the sponsor of (D the REV. BERGENAJARIAN Speaker tendent of the Nazarene missionary work in the Holy Land, is now on his second furlough since being appointed to the field in 1960. In addition to his work as district superin- tendent Mr. Najarian has preached regularly at the Jerusalem Old City Church and the beau- tiful International Nazarene Center in Jeru- salem. When he first went to the field, he served as teacher at the Bible school in Beirut, Lebanon.

However, he argued, the mother's privacy should be protected at all costs, but in some situations the only way to locate the real father may be through publication. The amendment was aimed at correcting Iowa's currently un- constitutional adoption laws which do not require the natural fathers of children born out of wedlock to legally terminate 10 YEARS AGO Pointing to a major crisis of unemployment of the entire Negro community, the National Assn. for the Ad- vancement of Colored People pledged a series of demon- s t r a t i o n s against General Motors to protest discriminatory practices in employment. Cornell Newspaper Gets Honor Rating MT. VERNO.N The Cor- nellian, weekly student newspa- per at Cornell college, has re- :eived the Associated Collegiate r e s s (ACP) All-American lonor rating. To merit this rating, a college newspaper must receive from he judge "mark of distinction" credit in at least- four of these ive areas: coverage and con- ent, writing and editing, edito-: ial leadership, physical appear-j ance and photography. The Cornellian received "mark if distinction" in the first four categories. The ACP was founded in 1921.J it prepares guidebooks to give I student newspaper staffs com-' pact, comprehensive evalua- tions of their newspapers, and a digest of standards and sugges- tions for such publications. their claim to a child before it is adopted. In a further effort to protect the privacy of the mother, the house voted 47-38 to prohibit in- quiries into the woman's past in order to establish the identity of the father. The rider, also offered by Rinas, specifically forbids a court ordering a woman to dis- close the father's name. He said forcing a 15-year- old unwed mother to reveal her lover's name could sub- ject the man if he was over 18 to charges of statutory rape. In addition, he said, a woman should not be allowed to be held in contempt of court for refusing to identify the father. The house, which adjourned Thursday for the Easter week- end, is expected to resume de- bate next week on the measure.
