Ford says that if moves to impeach E'resi- dent Nixon are defeated, the President then would need successes in foreign and domestic policy to recover lost public support. "I think if the President and Henry Kissinger are successful in the Middle East . . . and I think the prospects are fairly encouraging, T think that would be most helpful, 1 ' Ford said in interview with The Associated Press. He said the public's views 'move back and forth very quickly and there still is no het- :er issue for any President than peace, particularly if they have .07 cdy .. cdy 86 68 1.33 rn 72 53 87 68 82 68 .11 cdy 89 69 .. cdy 73 54 76 53 clr .. cdy clr 73 61 64 68 55 74 86 60 37 66 54 56 49 64 50 57 36 clr . . clr .02 cd .. clr .02 rn .. clr .06 clr .. cdy .21 clr .. clr .. clr . . cdy .. cdy , ihe impression that he^is the principal architect of it." Dramatic success in domestic issues would be more difficul "because you don't turn a spi got and end inflation," said the vice president.

Ford said he thinks the odds re about even thai the House udiciary Committee will vote i impeach the President. But c said he still believes the louse will reject an impeach- icnt resolution. Ford said April 15, 1970, that an impe.achable offense is vhatever a majority of the House of Representatives con- iders it to be at a given mo- nenl in history." At the time, Ford was Re lublican leader of the House inri was pushing for the im peachment of Supreme Cour Associate Justice William 0 Douglas.

Who could be more cynical trim the authors of the tax structure in America where the well-to-do can take advantage of tax loopholes and tax shelters to pay little or no taxes. And the working people, who already are paying a higher and higher percentage of their income tor necessities, are also asked to bear lion's share of trie cost of running the country. Dale Bumpers believes a more equitable plan can and must be devised. He would work lor a program to plug the tax loopholes that allow wealthy citizens and corporations to enjoy unprecedented profits with little or no taxes. And ha would push for a minimum income tax to insure that everyone, regardless of any possible shelters or deductions, assumes a fair share of the tax burden. Elect Dale Bumpers your Senator. He will lifton.,, and work for the people of Arkansas. P»fd tor by Bu moon foe S«n«t» C«niM*gn Commltte*. Mny Hou». c»Ch* rm»n FOR YOUR US.SOUTOR DALE BUMPERS
