By Ann Blackmail WASHINGTON - (AP) The impeachment inquiry on Capitol Hill is historic and m o m e n t o u s . But it's like being invited to a Hollywood premiere and not being allowed to watch the show. The action takes place behind closed, paneled doors on the first floor of the Sam Rayburn House Office Building on the southwest side of the Capitol. Anyone who doesn't belong inside is told so by an armed policeman at the door. * * * THOSE WHO insist on a glimpse of history-in-the-making must stand for hours in the marble corridor, waiting for the entrances and exits of the 38 members of the House Judiciary Committee. And if you're only there once, it's hard to figure out who's who. The chairman, Peter W. Rodino D-N.J.. a short, impeccably tailored man with wavy, gray-white hair, is easy to spot. Almost everywhere he goes, at least a dozen reporters and photographers surround him. President Nixon's lawyer. James D. St. Clair. is another crowd-pleaser. Each time he emerges from a secret meeting, reporters pounce on him, peppering him with questions as he walks quickly down the corridor. When John M. Doar, the tall, lean chief counsel for the committee, came out, he, too, was followed by questioning reporters. Doar was silent and kept walking. He reached the end of the corridor and knocked briskly on the door. No one answered. The chief counsel began to laugh. "Hurry up and get me away from these people," he pleaded. So it goes. * * » THE COMMITTEE has held six sessions in what Rodino calls the first phase -- Doar's recitation of all information available on the Watergate break-in and coverup. St. Clair, a short, stocky, gray-haired man, has permission to attend. When Doar finishes, St. Clair may respond on the President's behalf. Rodino has said the committee meetings may be made public within the next two weeks. The c o m m i t t e e room is small and will hold only about 100 reporters and photographers of some 1,000 who have requested to be admitted, so the television networks have built their own accomoda- tions. They have set up a. small, air-conditioned stage on a scaffolding outside the windows of the committee room. Rite Held For SLA's Angela Atwood PROSPECT PARK,~N.J. i/P) -- Funeral Services were held Saturday for Angela Atwood, one of six Symbionese Liberation Army members who died a week ago last Friday in a Shootout with police in Los Angeles. The service at St. Paul's Roman Catholic church was attended by about 200 persons. Burial was in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Totowa. Mrs. Atwood, the former Angela DeAngelis of North Haledon, N.J., was described by one woman at the ceremony as a "wonderful girl with a beautiful personality who ran into the wrong crowd." Australians Revive Lobbying for Bomb Agence France-Presse CANBERRA - India's nuclear test has revived the nuclear bomb lobby here which urges that Australia should have its own atomic deter. rent. U n t i l t h e I n d i a n u n d e r ground test, the influence of the probomb lobby had been declining. The lobby, inspired by university physicist John Titterton, includes factions in the Australian Atomic Energy Commission and the defense department. In public comments, the defense department faction has been reflecting the school of thought which holds that this country, in consultation with its allies, should develop its own nuclear capacity. * * * DEFENSE'S LATEST official recommendation was for a study to determine how long it would take for Australia to build a nuclear device if the need arose. It said the study should be carried out "despite the Australian Labor government's concern about misusing Australian resources for theoretical defense experiments." Meanwhile, the Indian test has caused bipartisan alarm while the votes are still being counted to determine the final results of last week's close election, in which Premier Gough Whitlam's Labor government appears to have been returned with a hairsbreadth majority. If the Indian blast had come a week earlier, it could have affected the Australian election result. Some Conservative party opposition members had been looking for just such an issue to attack the government for being overconfident about regional security in the future. Officially, the Australian government reacted relatively mildly to the Indian test. Foreign Minister Don Willes- see expressed "concern" at any possible proliferation of nuclear weapons, but "welcomed" India's assurances t h a t it had c a r r i e d out a "peaceful nuclear experiment."

It remains to be seen whether the impeachment inquiry, however historic and momen- tous, will hold the public's interest. One committee member, a Democrat, put it this way after sitting through a two-hour session in which a tape was played: "The whole damn thing is tedious and boring. Conversations are often in a monotone, and it's hard to hear because of the noises in the room." // Trooper A nsivers, Hang Up KINGWOOD, W.Va. (AP) - State police in Preston County were called Friday night to investigate a missing coil wire from a car parked in front of a restaurant at New-burg. The caller, who wasn't identified, expressed outrage at the theft and demanded that an arrest be made, authorities said. The man's insistent demand for an arrest in the case prompted a state policeman to drive to the scene. The trooper conducted a brief investigation and, as requested, promptly made an arrest -- the complainant, who was charged with public intoxication.
