Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - May 10, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Three Papers Repudiate Support Of Nixon; Call for Resignat ion By Ansodatcd Tress Three newspapers that supported President Nixon in 1968 and 1972 have editorials in Friday’s issues calling for his resignation or impeachment The positions taken by the Los Angeles Times, Cleveland Plain Dealer and the Kansas City 'l imes follow by one day a similar call by the Chicago Tribune, which also had been a Nixon supporter. Also, the Nashville Tennessean said in its Friday editions that Nixon should resign from office. How, When The Washington Post, which was responsible for many of the disclosures that led to the reopening of the Watergate case, said “The question is no longer whether he (Nixon) should be removed from office, but how and when he will go. And the answer, in large measure is up to him.” The Post said any presidential resignation should be “firmly founded on an acknowledgement of presidential wrong-doing, as distinct from being used only on some amorphous sense that he has been unjustly robbed by others of his capacity to lead. The Tennessean, which supported McGovern in his 1972 presidential bid, said “President Nixon must be painfully aware that he has lost the most desperate and dangerous gamble recr.” of his political ca- The Tennessean referred to Nixon's decif-,ion “to defy subpenas for tape recordings and to submit edited transcripts of some tapes instead, in hopes that this move would establish his innocence in the public mind.” “Resignation would be the honorable course for President Richard Nixon,” the Tennessean editorial concluded. “At Least One” The Los Angeles Times said the transcripts “contain presumptive evidence of at least one impeachable offense — the obstruction of justice. The news- fleered nearly two centuries have virtually assured that impeachment of President Nixon will become reality,” The Plain Dealer said. “The facts of the matter now show that no other course is possible,” the Ohio newspaper said. The Kansas City Times said "The American Constitution ... is reflective of the hopes and ideal of mankind for justice and truth and a good life . . . “Can such values really be reconciled with the sleazy dialogues now emerging in the White House transcripts? Can the end product of the men who Regents Okay Soy Committee Didn't ^tjNM3omo Donation to Bebe paper said nothing less than impeachment by the house and trial by the senate could determine the President’s fitness to continue in office. “Standing alone, the transcript of March 21, 1973, would appear to justify Mr. Nixon’s removal from office under even the narrowest definition of an impeachable offense — the commission of an indictable crime,” the California newspaper said. The Plain Dealer said “The President has gone too far. The transcripts of White House conversations clearly involve him in a coverup, to say the least. That and his refusal to comply with the subpoenas of the Watergate special prosecutor and the house judiciary committee ago to frame the Constitution be a bank of knaves who talk of advantage, revenge and adroit maneuver and never of what is right or wrong, or what is good for the country?” The Kansas City Times said Nixon scored successes in foreign policy but “now must ask himself whether his continued presence in office might not destroy these great achievements.” COUNCIL BLUFFS (AP) The state board of regents voted unanimously Friday to enter the space age with construction of an innovative domed coliseum at the University Iowa (UNI). The $4 8 million UNI Dome in Cedar Falls would be “a poor man’s Astrodome,” said Dr. David Geiger, consulting engineer for Geiger Burger Associate, New York City.
