While they welcomed the immediate benefits of Israel's acceptance of the American peace these sources were pessimistic about the future The salient influence in their gloomy analysis is the prospective withdrawal of the U S navy's Middle East Fleet from the Persian Gulf within a year.

Qualified sources reported that the U S hoping to avoid eviction from asked King Faisal of Saudi Arabia to bring pressure to cancel the order The king refused to these sources because he felt the US. was not showing sufficient interest in bringing about Israel's withdrawal from the sectors of Jerusalem once governed by Jordan.

The President is convinced he is in a much better position to defend himself while remain- ing in the presidency where information and Staff Is fuliv available He telievM was out of the White House he be unarmed and helpless and that he might well be cut to pieces by his adversaries. 3. It is the President's view that in and experience he is much better able to run the country than any successor. This Nixon position is not meant to be in way a criticism of the vice presidential Gerald Ford. But Mr. Nixon believes that Mr. Ford would be particular- ly in dealing with such foreign affairs problems as the Mideast crisis. 4. The president is quite conscious of his ex- tremely low standing in the public opinion polls. And he realizes that the pressures on him to resign now are coining from conservatives and Reniblicans But Mr. Nixon thinks he has a road back. He recalls President Truman's record break- ing 23 percent standing back in 1951 and the calls for Mr. Truman's resignation after he fired Gen. Douglas MacAithur. He refers to Mr. Truman as a and that he hung on despite toe pressure. Mr. Nixon thinks that American people like a and in the he will prevail if he keeps on fighting. the next Nixon move is very likely to be one in which he takes the offensive. Perhaps it might be another press conference. 5. The president rejects the widely spread in Congress and by many that he has lost the capacity to govern. He cites his ac- tliWU in Milbtut Pfifit hit mHtltuiwI victories in his battles with Congress as clear evidence that he still is in command. 6. The president is highly suspicious of the way the pressures on him have turned at least to some from the threat of im- peachment to a demand on him to resign. With this apparent shift ofemphasis in tactics by his critics-Mr. Nixon sees an admission of weakness that they don't see impeachment as being at all likely. Mr. Nixon feels his foes now have come to accept what he views as the realities that be has not been found guilty of any wrongdoing and that without such proof of guilt the House is not likely to impeach or the Senate to convict. it would be the Nixon thesis that as the FMult ftt MwfMaiuw In ttu rj peacbment weapon as a means of removing the the critics now have thrown all their weight of persuasion on the side of getting him to step down. All this should not be taken as a new mood of Nixon optimism. Not by any means. He knows be has a king way to go to get out of the woods and restore public confidence. But be does see the strategy of his opponents as shifting. And just because some of his Republican and conservative friends also are joining in this call for his resignation is not enough for the presi- dent to pack his bags and leave office. For a short it the president did talk over the pros and cons of resigning. as of now and at least for the be has decid- ;
