District court in Washington on tuesday delayed implementation of his order for two Days to enable interested parties to file appeals. The judge wrote that a1 Hart replaces Sirica As top District judge by Donald m. Rothberg associated press writer Washington a before he became a Federal judge in 1958, George l. Hart or. Spent More than 20 years As a Republican party worker. In those Days Long before watergate Hart often raised As much As $500,000 a year As cop chairman for the District of Columbia. Quot every contributor of $100 or More was listed by name and address. Every expenditure of As Little Asio cents was listed individually a Hart recalled in an interview. A a that was the Way i thought Campaign funds were handled. A i must have been a babe in the Woods a he added.

The other two g. Gordon Liddy and James w. Mccord jr., were convicted by a jury. Throughout Sirica made it Clear he did t believe All the facts were being brought out. Finally in March Mccord wrote the judge a letter in which he said the defendants had been pressured into pleading guilty and also that involved in higher were the break in nearly a year later a grand jury indicted seven former administration and Campaign aides on charges of trying to Block the watergate investigation. A Good Deal of the credit was Given to Sirica a dogged determination to get at the truth. How does Hart feel taking Over As chief judge from the Man whom watergate made into a Folk hero a it s just another he said his voice still carrying a Trace of the Tidewater Virginia drawl of his native Roanoke. A i frankly done to consider from a judge s Point of View that a watergate is different than any other Case see Hart on 2a though it has not been emphasized in this opinion it should not be forgotten that we Deal in a matter of the most critical moment to the nation an impeachment investigation involving the president of the United a it would be difficult to conceive of a More compelling need than that of this country for an unswervingly fair inquiry based on All the pertinent information a he said.

Both men indicated they do not expect undue delay in obtaining the papers because of the Sirica a provision for a stay while his order May be appealed. A i think the Appeal can be speedily disposed of one Way or the other a Hutchinson said adding that he does not think committee counsel should take any part in the Appeal proceedings. A the committee should not subject itself to the jurisdiction of any court he added.
