Mezvinsky Hits Taxes Mezvinsky called for Nixon's impeachment pointing to the President's underpayment of federal income taxes by nearly from 1969 to 1970.

Associate special prosecutor James Neal said lhat next Fri- day will be a target date for 13 additional conversations beyond the first 20. The 20 conversations for which tapes are to be turned over by next Tuesday include material covered in the edited White House transcripts re- leased in late April. Earlier, St. Clair told Sirica it would be impossible to comply with Jaworski's proposal thai the White House surrender all of the tapes within 10 days.
