Republican leaders, includ- ing House' Minority Leader John J. Rhodes, joined.a drive to. give the House the alterna- tive of voting censure. Several Democrats also supported the alternative measure. While urging that the House be given such an alternative, Rhodes himself took no stand for or against censure. The White House portrayal ot Nixon as an underdog was made by deputy press secre- tary Gerald L. Warren, who refused to concede that the House would vote for im- peachment.

(Staff Photo by Bill Hcrridgc) By mi COXLEY Staff Wrifcr When Lucky and Sparky and Butch and Joe have nothing better, to do during the summer they go lip in the attic and dig up old newspa- per out of "four inches of sand." At least that's what the hoys.told us reporters when they visited us Friday afternoon up in .our second floor office. THE TWO PAIRS of brothers had a couple of newspapers from the late 1920s with them and said they thought we'd be interested in them. And we were, of course, particu- larly since the fellows had 'walked all the way from Mulberry Street with then" cmsly treasures. They didn't know why we were laughing at Hie papers, though, with their adverti semen Is for new Fords for used cars at S2o, shoes for and nickel cigars. While some of us read the papers, Sparky and Lucky, a pair of bud- ding cowboys in their hats, boots and western shirts, struck up a con- versalion with Farm Editor J. T. Smith. After trying on J. T.'s straw hat. Lucky took off his smaller but jusl ES distinctive hat. and lold J. T., "You can call me Bob." That seemed to warm Ihinjs up ami when T. asked Lucky wheth- er he liked girls, he "I even like math better than girls." HIS BROTHER Sparky confessed lo liking rodeos, though he said, "I rode a horse once until it ran over me." Asked what they were doing to keep busy this summer, Butch, the oldest of the quartet at age 11, spoke up. "Mostly going to the church recreation center, hunting rocks and going np in the attic to look for stuff like these old newspa- pers." The newspapers themselves were crumbling but you cotild read such names as.baseball greats Carl Hubbel and Rogers Hornsby, Presi- dent Hoover and the dirigible Graf Zeppelin. As the boys were tearing, having been advised to "hang onto those old I asked Butch if he'd ever heard of Herbert Hoover. he said, "he's some old, king of.. .a.. .no, I don't know." He didn't look interested enough lo want lo find out about "ancient so I let him catch up with, his friends on the elevator. After all, the boys had to get back to the allic, vtere there's four inches of sand covering loads of neat oW things waiting to be dug np by young explorei'S. "Some of that is FIFTY YEARS sighed one of the boys, pondering an era too far back for them even to imagine.
