Answer Tomorrow  By Bab ( •■sidlnr  NEW YORK - The President is carefully wooing the 34 “nay” votes he will need in the senate if the house impeaches him Some of his staunchest supporters, including Press Secretary Ron Ziegler, have recently tended to concede that impeachment is all but inevitable in the house. It is heavily Democratic. of course, and clearly offended by the President’s refusal to give its judiciary committee the additional tapes it wants to see A majority of one vote in the house could indict the President and send his case to the senate, infinitely safer ground for him Two-thirds of the more sedate upper house must vote against him to remove him from office and bar him from further public office for life.  At this point, the White House strategy seems to be to persuade at least 34 of the KHI scions that nothing he did before and after Watergate constituted “high crimes and misdemeanors.”  This persuasion takes the form of quiet little dinners on the peaceful Potomac aboard the Presidential yacht Sequoia, reactivation of his old-time association with the conservative members and occasional trips to conservative areas of the country.  Johnson Margin  The President would settle for a one-vote edge in the senate, though it is natural that he would wish for a more substantial “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 to acquit. Just enough.  There have been objections expressed about the impeachment process’ being televised, though Sen. Mansfield, the highly respected majority leader, believes the public has a right to view the entire proceedings It would be an unforgettable period in the history of journalism, even though there is little likelihood that the accused would be present. He will be overseas in all probability when all the harsh charges and defenses ring through the 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 trial, too, though there is always an outside chance that he might appear at a dramatic moment to deliver his own defense  Dramatics  If his case goes to the senate  SPECIAL FATHER’S DAY  GIFT SELECTIONS  DISSTON  GRASS  SHEARS  A great choice for all-purpose drilling, grinding, sanding, buffing, wire brushing, polishing, pant mixing, screwdriver^ The farther you pull bock the trigger, the foster the speed Lets you match the speed to the (Ob at bond.

Senator Fessenden asked for a delay because his friend Sen Grimes of Iowa, one of the two Dartmouth senators, was not rn his place. Grimes had suffered a stroke three days earlier, but he had already been sum  moned, In anticipation of the vote, and was then in the Capitol.  Key Yates  A few minutes later he was carried to his seat.  “The senators were then polled in alphabetical order by the chief justice, Salmon Portland Chase. Dartmouth 1826. (An anti-Johnson contemporary said of him that he regarded himself as the fourth person in the Trinity.)  “Most had long been committed. so that their responses offered nothing of surprise. Grimes pulled himself to his feet, and by a mighty effort of will stood erect to vote. Though he reprobated the President and all his works, he refused to accept Johnson’s derelictions as ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ and voted to acquit . . . The only doubtful senator was Edmund Ross of Kansas, who had hitherto kept his own counsel. When his  name was called he voted for acquittal, and for all practical purposes the trial was over.”  It was rougher in the house, which had voted 126-to-47 to bring Johnson to trial Sick old Rep Thaddeus Stevens (Dartmouth, of course, class of 1814) had referred to Johnson as “that drunken tailor at the other end of the avenue."  Hoarse with ire after a long denunciatory speech in the house, Stevens called not only for impeachment but demanded that the President be forthwith arrested and sent to prison  (Johnson’s “crime" was that he fired Secretary of War Stanton without the senate’s approval.)  One-Vote Margins  But one vote spared the man American history is studded with one-vote margins. Maryland State Sen. George Snyder reminds us, “One vote granted statehood to Californ-  ia, Idaho. Oregon, Texas and Washington The Draft Act of W’orld war II was passed by one vote in the house.  “Thomas Jefferson and John Quincy Adams were elected to  the presidency by one vole in the electoral college. Rutherford B. Hayes’ election was contested and referred to an electoral commission. He emerged victor by one vote ”  Douglas Storer, author of “Amazing But True” books, tells us the purchase of Alaska was ratified by one vote. Hitler came to power by one vote.
