WASHINGTON With the evidence in and the arguments members of the House of Representatives judiciary committee are turn- ing to strategy in preparation for their crucial decision on whether President Nixon should be impeached. At party caucuses and private Democrats are searching for the best way to bring articles of impeach- ment to a vote while Republicans are planning counter-moves. Democrats found themselves divided at a caucus Monday night over whether to plunge in with a proposed article of im- peachment when debate opens or start with a general resolution on im- peachment and leave specific articles to be proposed later. Republicans are opposing suggestions that one article be voted on before another is of- preferring to have all the voting at the end. They don't like the prospect of a snowball effect in case an ear- ly article is approved. Also proving troublesome to the Democrats is the order in which they will propose arti- cles. Some favor going with the strongest first while others would prefer to test the waters with a marginal one. A new dimension was added to the debate and voting procedures Monday when the committea voted to allow live television and radio coverage of the sessions.

An Indian spokesman said a 1929 agreement with the department of Indian affairs allocated the land for use by Indians outside as a resting place for Indians to stay temporarily after leaving the hospital in but the land was sold to the town in 1959 without consulting the In- dians.
