8F -- Mav 1. 1974 'Sundav (iazetle-Mait Charleston, West Virginia Panel to Study Responsibility Rapt A painting at the Allied Artists Exhibition at the Art Gallery of Sunrise holds the attention of these "Middlers," preschool children in the weekday program at St. Matthews Episcopal Church. (Staff Photo by Ferrell Friend) By John Beckler WASHINGTON (J) - The evidence presented to the House Judiciary Committee in its impeachment proceedings so far raises the question: "Is a president responsible for the conduct of his subordinates? The answer, at least in the minds of the 38 members of the committee, could be an important factor in deciding whether they recommend the impeachment of President Nixon. For four days now they have been given a detailed presentation of evidence centering more on former White House aides than on Nixon. The activities of more than a score of the people around Nixon have been t r a c e d through the Watergate break- in, the coverup, the collecting of money and its payment to Watergate defendants, the Senate Watergate committee and grand jury investigations, and the trials results ing from it all. THE FAILURE of the evidence to involve Nixon directly has heartened his supporters and led to comments that the committee is finding nothing that could lead to his impeachment. The committee resumes its inquiry Tuesday, still behind closed doors. If the House votes for impeachment, then the President would stand trial in the Senate. Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield, D-Mont., told newsmen Saturday he would like to see the House committee hold open hearings to avoid differing interpretations of material being presented. But, Mansfield added, it is a question for House members to decide. Mansfield said that as far as he knew none of the leaks from the committee has corne from the panel's staff, and he praised the staff as superb. The idea that a president can be impeached for acts of his s u b o r d i n a t e s is by no means universally accepted on the House committee. THE BASIS for such an article of i m p e a c h m e n t was spelled out by James Madison, who had as much to do as anyone with drafting the impeachment provision in the Constitution. In the First Congress, arguing for the right of a president to fire members of the executive branch as well as hire them, he said: "I think it absolutely necessary that the president should have the power of removing from office: It will make him, in a peculiar manner, responsible for their conduct, and subject him to impeachment himself, if he suffers them to perpetrate with impunity high crimes or misdemeanors against the United States, or neglects to superintend their conduct, so as to check their excesses. On the constitutionality of the declaration I have no manner of doubt." Ten former Nixon administration or re-election campaign committee officials have pleaded guilty to or been convicted of crimes. Seven others have been indicted by the Watergate grand jury and are awaiting trial. On April 30,1973, in a television address on the Watergate affair, Nixon said: "I will not place the blame on subordinates -- on people whose zeal exceeded their judgment, and who may have done wrong in a cause they deeply believed to be right. Police Group To Meet Here The Division of State and Provincial Police of the International Association of Chiefs of Police will have its regional conference Monday through Thursday at the Charleston House, West Virginia State Police Supt. R. L. Bonar announced.

"In any organization, the man at the top must bear the responsibility. That responsibility, therefore, belongs here in this office. I accept it."

Watergate's Effect Aired By Talmadge ATLANTA, Ga. -- UPI -- Sen. Herman Talmadge said Saturday that the Watergate scandal has not hurt the office of the presidency, although it has harmed President Nixon. The Democratic senator and member of the Senate Watergate committee said at a news conference: "Long- range, I think this whole affair will have a cleansing effect on the body politic." Talmadge, 60, held his news conference after qualifying for a fourth-term re-election bid. So far he is unopposed. He said he has seen only two first-rate Cabinet members in his nearly 18 years in the Senate: former Treasury Secretary John B. Connally and Sec- r e t a r y of State H e n r y A. Kissinger. "The rest of them are a bunch of clerks in the basement of the White House or the Office of the Budget," he declared. "If nothing else, I think we are going to see a return to the Cabinet of Cabinet- level officers." * Baptists Slate Paper Project baptists slate There will be a paper collection project at Oakwood Baptist Church during the Memorial Day weekend to raise money for the building fund.
