Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - June 6, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Tte CHu Guttit. Fit., Jut 7. By Oswald James Jaroby 'What dia 1 do wrong'1" Soulh. "You played the hand like a man trying to foreclose a mortgage. There is no interest paid on tricks taken carlv in President Wooing 34 'Nay' Votes By Ctisjdlie NEW YORK The President is carefully wooing .11 "nay" votes he will need in the senate if (he house im- peaches him. Some of his ing Press Secretary Ron W'est opened the king of spades East played the deuce and West shifted to the queen of trumps.

He got lo discard one spade on the third diamond, but West ruffed in and cashed two more spades to leave Soulh one trick short. Once Soulh grabbed lhat first trump trick he could think forever and not find any way to make his contract. If he had done his thinking beforehand and let West hold the Irick, West could think to his heart's content, but he would not be able lo defeat the contract. If he led a second trump. South would simply run off the rest of (he tricks. If he played more spades he would hold South to his contract, but that would be all. The bidding has been: 6 West Norlh East South Double You, Soulh. hold: 65 Whal do you do now? three hearts or pass. Neilher action is outstanding. If you do decide lo bid do not bid three diamonds. TODAY'S QUESTION You decide lo pass. Wesl passes also and your partner doubles a second lime. What do you do now? Answer Tomorrow Ziegler. have recently tended to concede thai impeachment is all but inevitable in Ihe house. II is heavily Democra- tic, of course, and clearly of- ftiidrii b> ilic President's refusal lo give its judiciary committee the additional tapes it wants lo see. A majority of one in Ihe house could indict the President and send his case to the senate, infinitely safer ground for him. Two-thirds of Ihe more sedate upper house must vole againsl him to remove him from office and bar him from further public- office for life. Ai tins point, the White House strategy seems to be to persuade at least 3-1 nf Ihe Kill solons thai nolhing he did before and after Watergate constituted "high crimes and misdemeanors." This persuasion takes the form of quiel litlle dinners on Ihe peaceful Potomac aboard Ihe Presidenlial yacht Sequoia, reaclivaliun of his old-lime as- sociation with the conservalive members and occasional Irips to conservative areas of the country. Johnson Margin The President would sellle for a one-vote edge in the senale, Ihough il is natural lhat he would wish for a more sub- stantial "mandate." President Andrew Johnson was happy with the outcome of the only other such case in American history. The vote was 35 to convict, 19 lo acquil. .lusl enough. There have been objections expressed about the impeach- ment process-' being televised, though Sen. Mansfield, Ihe highly respected majority leader, believes Ihe public has a right to view Ihe entire proceedings. It would be an unforgettable period in the history of jour- nalism, even though there is little likelihood that the ac- cused would be present. He will be overseas in all probability when all the harsh charges and defenses ring through Ihe house chamber, being toasted and honored for his newest gains in the Middle East and elsewhere. If impeached, the chances are that he will miss the senate Irial, too, though there is al- ways.an outside chance lhal he might appear at a dramatic moment to deliver his own defense.
