MONDAY, .JI LY 29. 1971  CITY  FINAL  15 CENTS  ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES  Another Republican Deserts Charge He President on Abuse of Power Took Bribe  Of $10,000  Gazette Leased Wires  WASHINGTON — Rep. McClory (Rill.), second-ranking Republican on the house judiciary committee who voted [against impeachment in the his-! toric weekend vote, said Mon-!  ; day he would vote to impeach President Nixon on the grounds [of misuse of constitutional powers.  The 38-member committee reconvened its historic hear- !  ings Monday on a second article jof impeachment that was rewritten in an attempt to add McClory’s vote to the 27 who recommended Saturday that ; Nixon be impeached for obstruction of justice in the Watergate cover-up.  To get McClory's approval, a section in the second article! charging Nixon with contempt of congress for refusing to com-! ply with the committee’s sub-j |poenas was dropped so that McClory could offer a separate [article of impeachment on that charge.  Mezvinsky Reveals Proposed Tax Article  WASHINGTON (UPI) — Rep. Mezvinksy (D-Iowa) made public a copy of an impeachment article he plans to propose to the house judiciary committee claiming President Nixon tried to evade paying federal income tax.  In the draft of the article, Mezvinsky said Nixon:  . . Unlawfully received compensation in the form of government expenditures at and on his privately owned properties located in or near San Clemente, Calif., and Key Biscayne, Fla.”  . . Failed to report certain income and claimed deductions in the years 1969, 1970, 1971 and 1972 on his federal income tax returns which were not authorized by law.”  Mezvinksy said Nixon “acted in a manner contrary to his trust as President and subversive of constitutional government” and should be impeached and removed from office.  Because of debate on other articles, Mezvinsky was not expected to propose his impeachment article until  late Monday or Tuesday.

Clair and J. Fred Buzhardt, and White House chief of staff Alexander Haig.  Haig told newsmen aboard Air Force One on Sunday night as Nixon flew home from California, “We have suffered some losses this week and some very severe losses, quite obviously.”  “Triple Whammy”  He cited what he termed “a triple whammy’’ that involved a “rehash of evidence” by the house judiciary committee, an adverse supreme court ruling in the Watergate tapes and documents case and the shift of some judiciary committee Republicans to pro-impeach-mcnt positions.  Haig said that if a vote were to be held now on the house floor on whether to impeach Nixon and place him on trial before the senate, “it would be very close.”  The Nixon aide said presidential assistants believe the “triple whammy” coupled with Saturday night's pro-im-pcachment vote by the judiciary committee “has made thc margin on the floor of the h o u s e considerably narrower.”  Developments have changed “fairly favorable prospects” as of about three weeks ago to “one that is more uncertain,” he said.  “Evidence Not There”  “Having said that,” Haig continued, “all of us arc aware of the fact that we’ve had high points and low points and when they settle down to the synthesis of the dialectic we remain confident that the members of the house will reject impeachment.  “We are confident because we know that our attorneys  have consistently advised us that the hard evidence is not there.”  Asked if he thought Nixon really believes he will win, Haig said, “I think he believes that.”  Won’t Quit  Asked it tho President might conceivably resign, he said, “at this juncture I just don’t foresee it.  “Basically. I think he understands and in many re-spects expected this action fri rn the judiciary committee. It hasn’t changed one iota his sense of self-confidence and sense ut determination to see this thing through, and above all to continue performing his functions as President of tho I’luted States.”  Nixon, wife Pat, daughter Tricia (’ox anti son-in-law Edward i’ox had boon at the presidential home iii San < lemon! o, (’alif., since J uh 12.
