SEN. MIKE MANSFIELD Trial Should Proceed ·By John W. Finney (C) Neic York Times Sen-ice W A S H I N G T O N - Sen. Mike Mansfield, the Senate Democratic leader, took the position Saturday that neither this fall's election nor the probability that some "lame- duck senators" may be sitting as jurors should interfere with any impeachment trial of President Nixon. Even if impeachment proceedings should not reach the Senate until shortly before the November elections, as seems likely, Mansfield said in an interview that he believed the Senate should proceed with a trial on a six-day week basis. If an impeachment trial should extend beyond the November elections, Mansfield proposed that newly elected senators should be seated as "alternate jurors" in a special section of the Senate galleries. Then, under his proposal, the newly elected senators would be prepared to replace defeated or retired senators as jurors if the impeachment proceedings should extend into the new Congress, which will be convened in early January. * * * IN A PROVISIONAL way, the Montana Democrat has begun drafting plans for a Senate trial in the event that the House should vote articles of impeachment. He is attempting to approach the task with as little publicity as possible. Mansfield already has had discussions with Sen. Hugh Scott, the Republican leader.

The present timetable of the House Judiciary Committee is to complete its action by the end of July, with the House voting on any articles of impeachment proposed by the committee by the middle of August. With the President then given time to prepare his defense, should the House vote for impeachment it is unlikely that a trial could begin in the Senate before mid-September. In some Senate quarters suggestions have been raised that any trial should be postponed if it cannot be completed at least a month before the November elections. If a trial should continue after the November elections, objections are anticipated by Mansfield that "lame-duck senators" who have either been defeated or retired were sitting as jurors. If proceedings should start this fall and not be completed this year, then legal arguments are expected, probably IT'S FUN TO COLLECT RACCOON 24"x28" $40.00 PRONGHORN 22"x27Va" $40.00 PRINTS BY: CARLES FRACE' HERRING GULL 2lWx26 3 /4" $35.00 NOT TO ORGANIZE yZOO!
