Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, June 22, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-7 Blahhh on summer ,'his orangutan in Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo had little use for the photo- grafier or, apparently, summer, which officially started Friday. Nixon rides new wave of popularity but By GEORGE KITCHEN NEW YORK (CP) Presi- ent Nixon is riding the crest f a small wave of popularity .enerated by his triumphant our of the Middle East and .he successful conclusion of the Israeli-Syrian ceasefire worked out by his secretary of state. He still has a long way to go '.to regain the public approval once enjoyed but his rating in the public opinion polls has inched ahead in the last couple of weeks. It may well get an- other boost when the presi- dent visits Moscow next week to negotiate new trade and arms agreements. But the Watergate scandal is far from being behind him and Nixon faces several for- midable hurdles if he is to avoid impeachment and hang on to office until his term ends in 1976. The year 1976 is a key date because the 200th anniversary of the founding of the American republic will be marked that year with huge celebrations throughout the country. There is a general belief among observers that the White House goal is to keep the president in office so he can have the honor of presiding over the bicenten- nial celebrations.

CO. LTD. 519-7th St. S. Lethbridge, Alberta The House of Represen- tatives is scheduled in the next month or so to decide whether to vote for im- peachment. Perhaps ever more important, the U.S. Su- preme Court is to rule early in July whether the president can continue to withhold White House tapes which the special Watergate prosecutor feels are essential to his prosecution of a number of alleged Watergate con- spirators. The court's decision likely will have an important bear- ing on the direction the im- peachment vote takes in Congress. Four of the nine members of the high court are Nixon ap- pointees but there is no way the president can assume that the court will tend to lean in his favor on that basis alone. One of the four appointees already has disqualified himself and withdrawn from the case because he was associated with Nixon as a former member of the justice department. One of the fundamental issues before the court will be whether the president alone can define national security. Some acts of the Watergate conspirators, including the break-in at the office of Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist, were performed on the grounds that national security was in- volved. The court, in one celebrated case in the 1950s, ruled that the president has no such power to invoke national security. That case involved the seizure by the government of the country's steel mills. The country was at war in Korea, a steel strike was threatened and the mills were taken under government control on the ground that national security required that steel production not be interrupted. Harry Truman was presi- dent at the time. The court re- jected the White House contention that the president alone could define national security and that the ex- ecutive power given him un- der the constitution included authority to make emergency laws. The court ruled that the president's constitutional power to see that the laws were faithfully executed "refutes the idea that he is to be the lawmaker." His func- tion in the lawmaking proc- ess, the court held, was to rec- ommend laws he thought were wise and to veto laws he thought were bad. In a quick response to the court's decision, Truman or- dered the mills returned to their owners.
