Butler speech termed impeachment indicator WASHINGTON cannot condone what I have heard I cannot excuse it. And I cannot and will not stand still for Those angry as clearly as indicated impeachment for President Richard Nixon even though the House of Representatives' judiciary committee has not yet formally voted to recom- mend that the president be removed from office. The speaker was Caldwell a first-term Republican congressman from Virginia whose political career had been encouraged by Nixon and who had return- ed the favor with down-the- line support of the president's policies. Butler's support for Nixon stopped short of condoning the concealment of crime and abuse of power totally without he said. One of the 38 members of the judiciary Butler had been rated about im- peachment. His forthright de- nunciation of the president last week surprised his colleagues and showed a national television audience how deeply Nixon's position has been eroded. As a member of the presi- dent's own party and a south- the. sleepy-eyed congressman represented the two pillars upon whirh the White House has based its hopes for Nixon's acquittal. His defection was a signal that when the full House of Representatives comes to vote on the president might face a pro- impeachment alliance that includes not only his traditional opponents from the Democratic party and a few liberal Republicans but also many of the conservative southerners from both parties who had been his natural allies. Nixon suffered a significant defeat Friday night in the first voting test by the judiciary committee. Six Republicans voted with Democrats as the committee killed 27 to 11 a Re- publican effort to strike out the first key section of a pending impeachment article accusing the president of obstruction of justice in the Watergate coverup. Delaying tactics by Nixon loyalists postponed an expected recommendation to the full House that the president be impeached The vote indicated that Nix- on's support now centres es- sentially around a hard core of conservative Republicans from the Midwest and from the president's home state of California.

The historic ruling was delivered to a packed courtroom Wednesday by Chief Justice Warren with the seven other justices in rare accord. For the first the court acknowledged the existence of an unwritten right for the president to keep documents and conversations right of But the court said the right has limits most it asserted that the court the define what those limits are.

But there has been a miracle of another one that is not often mentioned but that is reason enough for the British to feel a sense of achievement. That is their record in the arts. Visitors to this country are always struck by the extraor- dinary richness and variety of music and dance. They may assume that it has always been thus in but it has not. The rich cultural life has been made possible by a in the last 25 of public and official attitudes toward the arts. Before the second world official interest in the performing arts was largely confined to censoring them. Shaw was just one of many who complained of an at- mosphere hostile to creativity in ideas or forms. For 100 years and more efforts to build a national theatre had got nowhere. Today the British govern- ment spends about million a year on subsidies for music and dance. Another million goes to museums and and million for the film institute. Other significant sums are spent by local for building new theatres or subsidizing repertory com- panies. The figure of over million in national govern- ment support for the arts is considering Britain's size and economic situation. In the United federal spending on aid to the arts is million in the current fiscal year a lower figure in a country with four times the population and about 12 times the gross national product. Account must also be taken of the British Broadcasting in a way the most significant cultural phenomenon in this country While the public television stations of America struggle against official the BBC has revenues of million a year from license tees imposed by parliament. The BBC carries on a good music its own drama and a general creative program that makes its television output the most interesting in the world. 0 course artistic excellence need not depend on public money. One example of an in- stitution that survives on private support is the incom- parable Aldeburgh with its roots in the villages and churches and mysterious countryside of East Suffolk.
