The proposed articles, stil! subject to refinements, were drafted after day-long negotia tions between pro-impeachmem Democrats and seven fence-sit ting members four Republi cans and three Southern Demo crafs. Neither side would say public- ly that the articles as presentee represent an agreement, bui one participant in the negotia- tions said he expects the seven undecided members to support at least one of them. Charges The Watergate article accuses Nixon of acting "directly and personally and through his close subordinates and agents" to ob- struct the investigation of the Watergate breakin. It lists nine specific acts it says Nixon directed to carry out the cover-up including the pay- ment of hush money, the sup- pression of evidence, the misuse of the CIA and the making of "false or misleading public statements in his capacity as President for the purpose of deceiving the people of the Unit- ed States The abuse of power article charges Nixon with authorizing illegal wiretaps, establishing a special investigative unit in the White House to engage in un- lawful activities such as the breakin at Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist's office and with tee implicated Nixon in Water- gate, but that the President could not escape some responsi- bility for the many offenses committed by those around him.

Hutchinson of Michigai the senior Republican member and a sure pro-Nixon vote, called for delay until the 64 tapes which Nixon will surren- der become available to the committee. Hutchinson stressed that a charge against Nixon, to justify impeachment, must be of sufficient gravity to warrant re- moval of the Persident from of- fice." Rep. Kastenmeir said he could not accept Nixon's defense that he was acting to preserve the institution of the presidency. "I would argue this fight is designed to save one person Richard he said. Rep. Edwards (D-Calif.) ac- cused Nixon of violating the Constitution "The compact we have with each other that enables us to live together, in peace, to pursue happiness in raising our children, and enjoy- ing our friends.
