Nixon Foes Weakening WASHINGTON (UPI) The three or four Republicans on the house judiciary committee once considered probable votes in favor of impeachment arc now wavering because, as one of them put it. the evidence so far "just isn't there." "It's far too early to predict how this will come out I'm not sure how I'm going to vote but I'm one of the key Republicans said, ask- ing not to be quoted by name. "The Democrats are blowing the case. As of now the evidence just isn't there." He added there has been "some damaging but there are many gaps that have to be filled before he will make up liis mind. Another of the key Republi- cans agreed, adding: "The case is weak It's not as strong as I thought it would be." Most Evidence Heard The Republicans' conclusions are important because the com- mittee has already heard most of the evidence in the Watergate case itself, plus evidence in key areas as the milk and ITT matters. The committee hopes to com- plete closed door hearings this week, taking up the firing of special Watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox; Nixon's personal finances, including his income taxes; and his ordering of the secret Cambodia bombing. While none of the Republicans has committed himself, for some months it has been con- ceded that the minority members most likely to vote for impeachment were Reps. Fish of New York, Cohen of Maine, Railsback of Illinois and Mc-j Clory of Illinois. Votes Critical Their votes are considered critical to the future of im- peachment in the congress. One of them explained their role this way: "If there are. three out of 17 Republican votes on the com- mittee in favor of impeachment, that's enough to make it bipar- tisan. Remember the Republi- cans on the committee are more conservative than the Republi- cans on the floor of the house.

The report also said about data banks are concerned pri marily with negative informa tion, including agency black lists, intelligence and civil dis- turbance files. Ervin called for legislation to include these safeguards: Explicit legal authority foi creation of each data bank as well as legislative approval for each decision to computerize files.

Calif. (UPI) The Randolph Hearst family has no plans to withdraw the reward offered for in- formation leading to the return of their kidnaped daughter, Pa- tricia. Spokesman John Lester told reporters at the Hearst home Monday that the offer will con- tinue "as long as she's out steadily at the farm level for eight months while holding rela- tively high at the retail level. Three Measures Albert gave his support to three of the proposed solutions being put forward by a large number of congressmen: An mediate moratorium on beef! imports, passage of a guaran-j teed loan program for the meat industry and purchases by fed- eral departments of excess beef. "If the department of agricul- ture and the administration re- fuse to recognize the problem, then it is up to congress to take Albert said. "In implementing these sug- gestions it is important to con- sider the consumer, for the ul- timate result of the present trend of the cattle industry will be complete scarcity of beef for the consumer. Beef will become If approved then by the a: semblies, it still would have t be ratified by local units to b 1 put into effect. A joint Jordanian-American .atement issued in Amman aid Nixon and his royal host at ic last stop on his five-nation swing discussed a hole range of issues and would esume their talks in Washing- an early date." The joint statement promised i "special effort" by the U.S. [overnment to assist Jordanian iconomic development and to 'play a strong role in maintain- ng Jordan's military strength. "It was agreed that a joint Jordanian-U.S. commission will established at a high level to oversee and review on a regular basis the various areas of coop- eration in the fields of eco- nomic development, trade, in- vestments, military assistance, and scientific, social and cultur- al affairs." King Hussein hailed Nixon's "journey for peace" in a ban- quet toast Monday night but cautioned that "the final goal is still many milestones away." Next Step Hussein said the withdrawal of Israeli forces from some of he Jordanian territory cap- ,ured in 1967 should be the next >tep and was "an essential )rerequisite to any permanent settlement." The king said he hoped this disengagement of Israeli and Jordanian forces along the Jor- dan river could be accomplished "with the strong and friendly hand of an indication that he would welcome a Jeru- salem-Amman diplomatic shut- tle by Secretary of State Kis- I singer. Echoing what Nixon's hosts in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Syria had told him, Hussein also called for Israeli withdrawal from all occupied Arab territo- ry, restoration of Arab sover- eignty over the Arab sector of Jerusalem, and recognition and restoration of the "legitimate rights of the Palestinian people" to return to their homeland and determine their own future.
