Schmidhauser Urges Go Ahead On Impeachmen IOWA CITY (API - A poll! leal scientist and former low congressman believes effort to impeach President Richard Nixon should continue, even though he resigned. “The question of resigna tion and the suggestions o amnesty that have been made." said former Rep John Schmidhauser (I)-Iowa) “often are very, very inap propate." Schmidhauser. who teaches at the University of Southern California, believes “the full thrust of our constitutional responsibilities” are upon the nation The political specialist was in Iowa City Thursday to join a symposium on the Herbert Hoover presidency. At the Hoover birthplace and Presidential Library in nearby West Branch, a celebration is underway to note the late chief executive s KMlth birthday. The threat of impeachment hung for a time over Hoover. A strong Hoover critic, Rep Thomas McFAdden (R-Ta.). in December, 1922, moved to impeach Hoover. The impeachment    move assailed Hoover’s foreign and domestic policies.    but McFadden’s effort was tabled on a 361-8 vote. Schmidhauser said that applying America's    laws “with equal justice and equal severity" is called for "to restore public confidence and to assure an adequate division of power between the legislative and executive branches." For those reasons. “It would be hoped that the power to impeach would be carried through," said Schmidhauser as Nixon’s resignation statement was being prepared. Refusing to “personalize” Nixon by name. Schmidhauser said that “Any president that has committed transgressions that have been openly acknowledged has reached a stage in which, in accordance with the views of the founding fathers, the full impact of the impeachment process should be carried through Schmidhauser, who formerly taught at the University of Iowa here, said there is a precedent “for carrying through impeachment after a resignation ” He said it occured “in the case of one federal judge who attempted to resign to avoid the impact of impeachment. “The House and Senate carried that through in any case," he recalled.

I think Jerry Ford has impeccable integrity.” The governor said he had “not been approached” by Republican leaders regarding the possibility of becoming vice president “I don't expect anything like that to happen," Ray said He said in Ford Americans have a President who has the “knowledge and truthfulness that the people have the right to expect.” Ray added. “J think the people of this country will rally around the new President now to see that we do move forward.” Donk or    ?

They hadn't been invented yet " Kent Vickery, the assistant professor heading the dig. says the Indians also predated agriculture and pottery “Fat and Happy” “But they were very resourceful and probably fat and happy.” he said. Vickery and 15 graduate and undergraduate students have been digging 40 miles southeast of Cincinnati, between the tiny Ohio towns of Utopia and Child, since the middle of June. Atop a short, winding trail alongside a thriving tobacco field just hidden from view of U.S. highway 52. the archaeologists carefully dug seven square hides, each one 6 feet wide and several feet deep Then the long-handled spades were put away and out ame such dirt-remov mg tools as tiny mortar trowels, air iiellows and even tweezers Burial Position Among the hundreds of historically revealing objects found were the remains of a young Indian who was buried with his legs folded at the kneecap and pushed back against his chest From the artifacts found se far. here s what Vickery car tell about the residents of long ago This was probably a hunting and fishing base camp used seasonally by about Kb) Indians While they weren’t advanced enough to invent the tiow and arrow, they did concoct a rock weight to attach to their s[x*ars to give them more distance and impact upon hitting animals, mainly deer Although they didn t know how to plant crops, they ate many natural foods Fragments of walnuts, hickory nuts and butternuts — burned and carbonized, and thereby accurately dateable to 2.600 RC. — have been found Carbonized sections of plants also were dug up Rites Are Monday For B.H.

Pryor. who still looks like he could go ten rounds, told a group of us making the tour “Dolls are a marvelous common language, a kind of super-Esperanto. I ve shown some of these over most of the world and the reaction has always been the same — delight, and not only just among the children. The appreciation of a beautiful doll isn t confined to any age group, or racial. Here’s a case filled with Jew ish and Arab dolls, all happy." Pryor and his ineffably hospitable wife, Marv-Tay. maintain a special staff to do the dolls’ laundry, dust or wash their beautiful faces, and keep the springs in the animated ones from rusting. The National Geographic Society. Smithsonian Institution and several other organizations would bo happy to take Pryor’s incredible collection off his hands. Price would hardly matter to any of the bidders. But Sam wants to keep his treasure near him, and. of course, would not give up his Lindbergh collection for any sum. He seems to know every doll by name, and certainly bv nationality. Sam is as Republican as, say. his friend Sen Gold-water. But he'd like to show the collection one of these years in the Soviet Union Doll Diplomacy “Imagine what a joy it would be for those Russian children to see the native costumes of the kids of other countries?" ; he asked our group “Otherwise, they'll never know ’’ There was instant agreement that it would do at least as much good as Kissinger s diplomacy Kings, queens, princes and the future Empress of Japan have contributed to Sam s collection A desperate midnight search in Tokyo uncovered a tiny doll in a kimono which completed the miniaturized dolls-of-t he-world he was scheduled to show to the Japanese royal family the next morning. “It was a '•liff-hanger.” Sam recalled, pointing to a gracious note of thanks from the wife of Crown Prince Akihito.

They play the violin, lyres, blow horns, smoke water-pipes, fix their hair and look at the finished result by lifting tiny mirrors, and thumb their noses at the French. (This is a Haitian doll, and Sam apologized in his courtly manner to the young girls on our tour in advance of w inding him into action, and also explained to them how badly (he French treated that colony.) There are doll-like figures that gulp pennies, gadgets that taught children of a century and more ago how to save. One exception is a fat bronze figure that refused to accept the penny Sam placed on his hand Tammany Belly "A Tammany politician, you can recognize him from his belly," slimline Sam said. Then he put a nickel on the figure’s hand and the “Tammany politician” immediately dumped it into its satchel “Same as today,” Sam pronounced Looks like a bad year for the Denis. There are much more complicated doll arrangements, Sam explained one of them to Maureen O’Connell and the other little girls as well as to the senior citizens.

One of their sons who had been out of the country had flown home to see him. and that had cheered him. Is Your Home Safe?
