Hard line causing Nixon Ford rift by Carl p Leubsdorf a political writer Washington a president Nixon a hardened attitude toward the House impeachment inquiry appears to have created the first serious Public differences Between the president and vice president Gerald r. Ford. Ford is making it Clear that he disapproves of what he Calls Nixon so Stonewall attitude and that he fears it May be the catalyst that As possible with the House judiciary committee. A Veteran of 25 years in the House Ford knows the sensitivities of congressmen and realizes that a refusal to cooperate will raise the institutional backs of even House members eager to support the president. This is in fact what is increasingly happening within the judiciary committee As shown by its lopsided votes in favor of subpoena ing evidence Nixon refuses to brings about the presidents a give. Impeachment. On wednesday Nixon set at the same time he indicates his Oft stated pleas for Compromise and moderation Are falling on deaf ears and that he sees no sign the. President plans to reverse his course. For weeks now Ford has been issuing periodic Public warnings that Nixon a plight would be deepened by a refusal to cooperate As fully off a new showdown by informing the panel he would give it no further watergate material. That night in Wilmington del., Ford took some questions from his audience at a Republican rally. A Man asked if he would use his Good offices to bring about compliance with subpoenas and other demands for evidence so that the republicans could put watergate behind them. Ford gave his usual response about the Large amount of material Nixon had already provided then added that after it is digested a if they want any More that a relevant to the issues to the impeachable offences in the Constitution i Hope the president will give it to them the sooner the Ford expressed Confidence in Nixon a innocence but added a a let a get it All out there and the quicker the late thursday morning. Nixon summoned Ford to one of their periodic chats. When he arrived at Andrews air Force base that afternoon to Fly to new York for a speech the vice president was barraged with questions about the session but brushed aside questions about whether the watergate situation was even discussed he later passed the word that he was annoyed at the Way he had been hit by questions without warning upon arrival in new York he looked unusually somber and aides said he was a a Little uptight because the meeting with Nixon had thrown his schedule off. Later thursday night however Ford gave More of a clue As to what might have been bothering him. In an interview with abcs Bill Zimmerman he indicated the White House had again rejected his advice and said a it seems to me that a Stonewall attitude Isnit necessarily the Wisest when he was asked if he had any reason to believe that there might still be a Compromise he replied a at this Point i done to think in a in a position to give you any authoritative answer. I can Only say that in my judgment that would be a better in another interview Friday with the Washington Star news Ford said president Nixon a did no to give me any reason to believe that he would change his position on supplying additional material to the committee. Since he was named for the vice presidency oct. 12, Ford has shown steadfast loyalty to Nixon mixed with some criticism of White House tactics and a Clear indication there were quite a few things he would have done differently. Now with the background of his knowledge of the House of representatives he is trying to Tell the White House what will happen if Nixon persists in his course knowing that failure to get the message across could put him into the presidency
