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 im- peachment when debate opens Wednesday, or start with a gen- eral resolution on impeachment and leave specific articles to be proposed later. Fear Snowballing Republicans arc opposing sug- gestions that one article be voted on before another is of- fered, preferring to have all the voting at the end. They don't like the prospect of a snowball effect in case ah early article is approved. Also proving troublesome to the amount of work remaining. Rotation Plan The ABC, CBS and NBC tele- vision networks said they will televise the hearings live in a rotation plan similar to the one they adopted in early June a year ago during the senate Wa- tergate hearings. The house and committee sti- pulated that Ihe broadcasts must not be interrupted by com- mercials. Judiciary members voted to allow television lights, which j spent on amending and voting i the proposed impeachment ar- jticle.

Voles The house voted 346-40 to allow broadcasting of commit- tee meetings. The measure was supported by 198 Democrats and 150 Republicans while 17 Demo- crats and 23 Republicans op- posed it. A few hours later the commit-, tee voted 31 io 7 to approve a resolution admitting the broad- cast media to the debates. Se- venteen Democrats and 14 Re- publicans were in favor of per- milling broadcasting. Three Democrats and four Republi- cans were against it. ABC will televise Wednes- day's impeachment debate live, CBS will cover.it Thursday and NBC Friday. Any network can air all or part of the debate live on the days it doesn't have the primary responsibility for live coverage.

N. announced. A government crisis in Greece added to the un- certainty of Cyprus' future. A Turkish military spokesman said in Adana, Turkey, the Tur- k i s h military operation on Cyprus continued, and the U. N. report issued in New York said Turkish forces had reached the U. N. headquarters near the air- port with a view to attacking it. Thc headquarters came under a Turkish mortar barrage around noon, it said. At about p.m. Cyprus time, it said, the Greek Cypriot national guard "began to move forward in the area and the Ca- nadians, who have already suf- fered some casualties, have been ordered to resist forced entry." Although the U. N. forces in Cyprus carry only light weapons and have general orders to fire only in self defense, Maj. Gen. U. Prem Chantf of India, the force commander, ordered his Canadian troops to resist armed entry into the U. N. compound. "Broken Badly" U. N. forcesjook over the air- port "after a jiew and serious breach of the cease-fire" in the area, headquarters reported. The airport was taken over, the spokesman said, because "this is a place where thc cease-fire was being broken very badly." With the takeover, the airport "thus becomes a U.

Secretary General Kurt W a 1 d h e i m held emergency meetings with the Turkish and Greek ambassadors. Meanwhile, the Cyprus gov- ernment announced a new president in an apparent at- tempt to come to peace terms with Turkey. The announcement said the new president would be Glafcos derides, a prominent figure in the previous regime of Pres- ident Archbishop Makarios and the man who headed the inter- talks with the Turks during the Makarios regime. Radio Cyprus said Nikos Sampson resigned as president of Cyprus. In a speech broadcast by Radio Cyprus, Sampson said derides, because of his experi- ence, is better fitted to lead the nation.
