Gay judiciary committee to limit number of witnesses in its inquiry Washington a the House judiciary committee is planning to limit sharply the number of witnesses called in its impeachment inquiry and the areas in which they will be questioned. Under increasing pressures to wind up the inquiry in the next three or four weeks the committee is expected to decide that Only five or six witnesses will be needed. That would include witnesses recommended by the inquiry i staff by committee members j and by James St. Clair who is in charge of president Nixon a impeachment defense. The witnesses will be examined Only on specific Points i where gaps appear in the committee s documentary evidence or where there is conflicting evidence. Longer sworn statements from witnesses would be available to the members. Few major watergate Fig ures except former White House counsel Charles w. Colson Are Likely to be on the witness list. The committee has the testimony of the others from the grand jury and the Senate watergate hearings. Colson reportedly told committee attorneys that he warned Nixon in january and in february of 1973 that former atty. Gen. John n. Mitchell was involved in watergate. Nixon had said he Learned of High level involvement in the breaking on March 21, 1973. Colson a attorney on saturday confirmed these accounts by columnist Jack Anderson and the new York daily news of Colson a testimony. The identity of the impeachment witnesses and the ground rules for questioning them will be worked out next week in a series of meetings that will also Settle the questions of How St. Clair presents his defense and whether evidence gathered in the inquiry will be made Public. At a meeting monday the committee is also expected to Issue another subpoena for White House tapes and documents. Nixon has refused to comply with four previous ones seeking watergate evidence. The new one will demand evidence relating to the settlement of an itt antitrust suit to political contributions by the Dairy Industry and to allegations the Nixon administration used the internal Revenue service for political purposes. One reason for the new subpoena is to build up the committees Case for making Nixon a noncompliance with subpoenas a possible ground for impeachment. The committee has also notified Nixon it will feel free to infer he is withholding incriminating evidence if he fails to provide material that could fill in some of the gaps in the Case. That there Are gaps is conceded by nearly every member. Some of Nixon a strongest defenders on the committee say nothing that could involve him in an impeachable offence has been proven so far. On the other hand a number of democrats say the documentary record already provides sufficient grounds for recommend ing that Nixon be brought to trial in the Senate. Some democrats Are considering Basing one article of impeachment on constitutional grounds however in Case proof of an impeachable evidence is lacking because of missing evidence. They Are guided by a Brief on constitutional grounds for impeachment prepared by the inquiry staff at the Start of the investigation.
