Broadcast technicians installed cables and cameras im the committee’s Rayburn Office WASHINGTON (AP) -Rep. Lawrence Hogan (R-Md.), a member of the house judiciary committee, said Tuesday that in his opinion President Nixon has committed impeachable offenses and should be removed from office. WASHINGTON (AP) - With the evidence in and the arguments made, members of the house judiciary committee are turning to tactics and strategy in preparation for their crucial decision on whether President Nixon should be impeached. At party caucuses and private meetings being held regularly. Democrats are searching for the best way to bring articles of impeachment to a vote while Republicans are planning counter-moves. Democrats found themselves divided at a caucus Monday night over whether to plunge in with a proposed article of impeachment when debate opens Wednesday, or start with a general resolution on impeachment and leave specific articles to be proposed later. Fear Snowballing Republicans are opposing suggestions that one article be voted on before another is offered. preferring to have all the voting at the end. They don t like the prospect of a snowball effect in case an early article is approved. Also proving troublesome to the Democrats is the order in which they will propose articles. Some favor going with the strongest first while others would prefer to test the waters with a marginal one. A new dimension was added to the debate and voting procedures Monday when the committee voted to allow live televi-; sion and radio coverage of the! sessions. Some Democrats fear the Republicans will resort to forcing rulings by Chairman Ro-dino (D-N.J.) that would give an. appearance of stifling debate. Initial Speeches Rodino said Monday that he was prepared to give each of the 38 members 15 minutes to discuss impeachment in general terms, a total of nearly IO hours! for the committee’s 38! members. That should consume the first two days of debate. After that members would be recognized to propose articles of j i rn p e a c h rn e n t and to offer amendments to them, with each member entitled to five minutes on each article or amendment. Rodino at one time had hoped to conclude the committee’s deliberations by Saturday, but most members now expect the proceedings to run at least until| next Tuesday. St. Clair Out James St. Clair, Nixon’s impeachment defense lawyer added his touch of strategy Monday when he sent a letter to special counsel John Doar asking for permission to attend the committee's sessions. St. Clair said in a news conference Monday night that Doar has now (Continued: Page 3, Col. 3.) Stocks Score Strong Gain NEW YORK (AP) - The stock market staged a broad ad Vance Tuesday.
