Ic also said he thought the ommittce should call Water-ate witnesses and clear up any emaining questions on the over-up before proceeding to ther subjects. Pica To Wait Rodino said at a news briefing lat he hopes members will vait until the entire case, which nvolves dozens of allegations in everal different areas, has wen presented before cxpress-ng any judgments. Also at the news briefing, ounsel John Doar disclosec hat proposed articles of im-icachment were being prepare! >y the staff, but he warne( against drawing conclusions about the activity. He said the work was being done so the ma-erial would be ready if the ommittee decides it is needed. Most members regard Watergate as the heart of the im-icachment inquiry and some id not hesitate Wednesday to ay where they think matters tood. Rangel said he was convincec on the basis of the White House-dited transcripts that Nixon o m m i 1 1 e d impeachable of-enses. Asked how he felt after icaring the additional evidence resented by the committee taff, he said, "Now, more than ever." Party Lines.. Reaction to the evidence presented so far generally followed jarty lines. "I think a slight case has been made, but not substantia enough to support said Rep. Smith "They haven't shown me anything yet to make me think the President is guilty of said Rep. Moorhead But Rep. Hungate said he thinks the case was "very substantial." Rep. Kas-tenmeier said he found it "compelling." And Rep. Flowers said "very damaging items of eVidence" were presented. All three Democrats stressec that they were not prepared 1 say that Ihe evidence pointed to impeachable conduct by Nixon. They said they want to hear the rest of the evidence and St. Clair's rebuttal. ed files left behind in the lite House.

Fielding's office was oken into in 1971 in an ac-owledged search for informa-n about Ellsberg, the former fense analyst who leaked the ntagon Papers to the press. At a pre-trial, hearing last St. Clair claimed execute privilege in attempting to ssuade the judge from his termined effort to obtain 'the les of meetings sought by Col-n and Ehrlichman. "No Privilege" Crushing aside the claim, Gc-1 lectured St. Clair sternly "here is no executive privi ;e. I want those document oduced." The question is, the judg id, "How does the Presiden e his duty to enforce the ien his former confederate e under indictment." Gesell has said repeated! at a final refusal by Nixo ould likely result in dismissa the charges because if th vernment withholds evidenc neficial to the defense then ay not prosecute its case.

Sirica said he was legally powerless to meet the request because the tape of the four conversations, two on June 20, 1972, and the others from June 30 and Sept. 15 of the same year, were delivered lo him for rulings on claims of executive privilege by President Nixon. He said it is up to Nixon whether cr not the tapes should be turned over to the committee. Citing this ;is a special ease, Sirica said in a legal memo answering the committee, "The court does not in any way imply that the recordings sought are irrelevant to the impeachment investigation." Sirica said his decision "is based rather on the wholly unrelated ground that the court simply has no role lo play in the matter." (Continued from Page agreement, Israel and Syr agreed that the U.
