Wash. i.fl - A ; majority of Democratic gov- ^ernors -- and some Republi- ' cans -- say on the eve of their ' annual conference starting \ here today that relations be- tween the states and the Nix- ;'6n administration have suf- ; fered from the effects of the Watergate scandal. .. Most Republicans, however, . say they see little adverse im\pact on federal-state rela- Â· tions. '"..': One GOP state executive. Â·^Gov. Robert D. Ray of Iowa. Tsays he has "noticed a rmarked effort on the part of Â·;-White House staff members to Â·;be more responsive" since the Iscandal erupted last year. ;'.'-Many of t h e - g o v e r n o r s Â·Â·questioned by The Associated :.Press in advance of their "meeting felt Watergate would "damage Republicans in this ^fall's elections, primarily in Congressional contests. ~ On the question of President ^Nixon's future, most felt the ..^constitutional process of impeachment wa's the best way Â·-to proceed though a half-dozen i'Democrats and Oregon Republican Gov. Tom McCall .'said they want him to resign. '.-., More than half of the 50 gov- ; ernors, representing all philo- ;sophical views, responded to rthe questions. ~ ' - * * * POLITICS AND Watergate "are likely to dominate the cor- -rjdor conversations and inter- "iviews. Inside the conference "rooms, however, the gover- .nors hope to examine their relations with Congress and such problems as health care 'and federal-state-local relations. Neither President Nixon nor Â·Vice President Gerald R. -Ford is expected to attend, though both were invited. ' " A number of key congres- "sional leaders plan to attend -an unusual Monday morning "discussion of legislative matters affecting the states. They include Rep. John Anderson, Â·R-I11., chairman of the House GOP Conference; Sen. Frank .E. Moss, D-Utah, secretary of Â·the; Senate Democratic Con- -ference; and Representatives John Brademas, D-Ind., Spark Matsunaga, D-Hawaii, Olin league, D-Tex., and Jim Wright, D-Tex., all in the "House Democratic leadership. '.'.- House Republican Leader -John J. Rhodes, R-Ariz.., and .assistant Senate GOP Leader -Robert P. Griffin, R-Mich., ..a're also likely participants in ,the discussion which will follow a "state of the States" speech by Gov. Daniel J. Ev- Â·ins, R-Wash., the outgoing "conference chairman. 1 " Conference officials expect .a few major conference bat- ;t"les on policy issues. Demo- -crats held a 32-18 majority in ; governorships which is short of the three-fourths majority :needed to pass policy resolutions. Gov.

Va., have been Â·awarded degrees by St. Andrews Presbyterian College here, he saw little problem on "the working level" but that "in the broader area of policy matters the White House appears to be unresponsive and unable to deal with those issues that touch the lives of every citizen." Citing the economy, inflation and the energy crisis, Mandel said "the White House appears incapable of focusing its attention on crucial policy matters because of the Watergate distraction and preoccupation." Evans said relations with most executive agencies are good but the battling between the White House and Congress "and the resulting fallout of that has hurt us to an extent." Gov. John J. Gilligan of Ohio, a Democrat, said "the federal government has been paralyzed because of preoccupation with Watergate," leaving states to cope by themselves with national problems such as energy. However, Democratic Gov. John C. West of South Caroli- na said "Our relations with the White House have been basically good during the past year, and the impact of Watergate has been negligible." * *. * ON THE POLITICAL impact of Watergate, governors of both parties generally ruled out much effect on state contests while predicting it would hurt the GOP in House and Senate races. Most Democrats tended to downplay the Watergate impact while declaring they expect the administration's record on other issues to play a major role. Others favoring presidential resignation included Democratic governors Patrick J. Lucey of Wisconsin, Cecil Andrus of Idaho, Rampton, Mandel and Milton J. Shapp of Pennsylvania. Most agreed with Minnesota Democrat Wendell Anderson, who said "I think the proper way for the problem to be handled is to follow the procedure set up in the Constitution."
