Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - May 10, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Three Papers Repudiate Support Of Nixon; Call for Resignation By Associated Press Tiiree newspapers that sup- ported President Nixon in 1968 and 1972 have editorials In Fri- issues calling for his res- ignation or impeachment. The positions taken by the Los Angeles Times, Cleveland Plain Dealer and the Kansas City Times follow by one day a simi- lar call by the Chicago Tribune, which also had been a Nixon supporter. Also, the Nashville Tennes- sean said in its Friday editions that Nixon should resign from office. How, When The Washington Post, which was responsible for many of the disclosures that led to the re- opening of the Watergate case, said "The question is no longer whether he (Nixon) should be removed from .office, but how and when he will go. And the answer, in large measure is up to him." The Post said any presidential resignation should be "firmly founded on an acknowledgement of presidential wrong-doing, as distinct from being used only on some amorphous sense that he has been unjustly robbed by others of his capacity to lead. The Tcnnessean, which sup- ported McGovern in his 1972 presidential bid, said "Presi- dent Nixon must be painfully aware that he has lost the most desperate and dangerous gamble recr." of his political ca- The Tcnnessean referred to Nixon's decision "to defy sub- poenas for Jape recordings and to submit edited transcripts of some tapes instead, in hopes that this move would establish his innocence in the public mind." "Resignation would be the honorable course for President Richard the Tennes- sean editorial concluded. "At Least One" The Los Angeles Times said the transcripts "contain pre- sumptive evidence of at least one impeachable offense the obstruction of justice. The news- paper said nothing less than im- peachment by the house and trial by the senate could deter- mine the President's fitness to continue in office. "Standing alone, the tran- script of March 21, 1973, would appear to justify Mr. Nixon's removal from office under even the narrowest definition of an impeachable offense the com- mission of an indictable the California newspaper said. The Plain Dealer said "The President has gone too far. The transcripts of White House con- versations clearly involve him in a eoverup, to say the least. That and his refusal to complj with the subpoenas of the Wa- tergate special prosecutor anc the house judiciary committee ave virtually assured that im- cachmenl of President Nixon ill become The Plain )calcr said.
