NOW Calls For Impeachment Of President HOUSTON (AP) - The newly-elected president of the National Organization for Women says men have nothing to Tear «nd everything to gain from the women's rights movement. "Men don't have to be success objects anymore," Karen De Crow said Monday In her acceptance speech as the head of the feminist group which claims some 40,000 members. Delegates to the seventh conference ended a three · d»y meeting by approving several resolutions, including one calling for the impeachment of President Nixon. The resolution said there is "substantial public evidence to Emmys To Be Presented In It 'Supercalegories' Tonight , By JAY SHARBUTT ., NEW -YORK (AP) -- Tele- t . vision's 26th annual Emmy .; awards show gets under way from Hollywood tonight on NBC-TV. What makes this year's bash different is that it'll arrive with a mild case of pali- lalia. Palilalia is a speech defect in which the last word or words of · phrase are repeated several times. In the Emmy case, the the winner is some shows that the academy finally decided to attempt mollifying the outraged. It's trying this with a "playoff" in which academy judges review the shows and performances they've already winne- rized and from these declare-as you'll see tonight--the elite in 18 supereategories.

The resolution, which NOW spokesmen said was approved by a unanimous show of hands and was met by applause, said the President "h a s unconstitutionally impounded funds appropriated by Congress for programs in education, child care, health and research' which are vital to the needs of women and children."

Miss De Crow, an author and speaker, who was elected on the third ballot late Sunday night, said "women are entering the mainstream. My philosophy is to do it more rapidly." "Gender should make absolutely no difference in life," she said. "The movement has gone beyond women's rights to human liberation." She said the women's equal rights amendment is a means to an end. Its main effect, she said, would be to make "thousands of anti-women laws unconstitutional", saving women the necessity of testing them individually in court. On the issue of participation in NOW by anti-abortionists, CHARLOTTESVTLLE, Va. (AP) -- Former Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox says President Nixon's refusal to surrender White House tapes could lead to impeachment. Cox told newsmen Monday that if the Supreme Court should order surrender of the material and should Nixon continue to refuse to give the materials up, it "would, in my judgment, be the most serious of impeachable offenses." Speaking at the University of Virginia Law School commencement. Cox said if Nixon should refuse a Supreme Court order he would "defy the essen- ial constitutional guarantee hat the executive be under the law," and "would assert an arbitrary, executive power to block full and impartial inquiry into executive, wrongdoing." Cox, ordered fired by Nixon last October, said there are three potential grounds for impeaching Nixon, including a continued claim of executive privilege in the face of any Supreme Court ruling' U n d e r , normal circum- stances.he said, the right of ex ecutive privilege ought to be respected, but that it must give way when there- is "a prima facie showing that it cloaks evidence of a crime." Cox said that in this case "there is a showing that criminality corrupted the same high levels ol the executive branch." . He said another ground would be withholding from the House Judiciary Committee evidence the committee believes essential to its . Watergate inquiry, and a third could be Nixon's failure 'to restrain and direct the activities of both the Committee to Re-elect the President LOS ANGELES (AP) - Cali- 'ornia Lt. Gov.

Fenner told police he hac closed the business at 4 p.m. Monday afternoon and thai when he re-opened it at 7:35 p . m . , he discovered the machine had been pried open. Police said it could not be determined exactly how enlrj to the building had been gained but it was believed that a screwdriver was used to pry open the machine. Fenner told police the machine had been burglarized three times in recent months. Enters Plea Rickic Wade Cagle, 2! Springdale, pleaded innocent in Court Friday to a charge o uttering a forged instrument. Cagle's trial was set for June 11. He is free on $2,500 bond. SAME SYSTEM The same system, on a limit- Id basis, was to be used earlier today in the academy's first separate Emmy awards show, aired by NBC from New York, for outstanding daytime television achievements. That show was made separate. NBC's man said, "because for a lot of years the daytime TV people and a lot of viewers felt their awadds were more or less ignored in the nighttime (Emmy) telecasts. "And they've been waiting for a long time to have their cwn awards show. It kind of makes sense because they have their own following and it's rather a world of its own." Don't think tonight's show concludes the Emmy season. The'academy is nolding its second annual awards show for TV news Sept. 4 on ABC. she said she 'did not believe there should be a purity test for joining an organization. "But I don't think you can be a feminist and be against a woman's right to abortion," she said. The new president said she would oppose payment for the NOW president during her term of office. She said she has been able to derive an income from book royalties and speaking engagements. and his White House aides. Town Prepares For National Fink Day FINK, Tex.

Patricia Albright, mayor of the tiny town near Lake Texoma, says this year's Fink Week celebration will feature a War Games Made More Realistic NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - In an attempt to make war games more realistic, the U.S. Naval War College is replacing its traditional tabletop method of fighting battles with computers and movie projectors. And sometimes even politicians. War games are regarded as the cheapest possible way to d i s c o v e r and demonstrate faulty combat decisions, and the new methods being tried here make the center a trailblazer in that area, says Capt. Don Henderson, director of the college's war gaming- center. · Since politicians often are looking over the shoulders of military men. politics was injected into a recent exercise, Henderson said top-level State Department employes acted as umpires in the game and controlled the escalation of involvement, "to the complete frustration of the military commanders." "It was so realistic; the end result was it helped reach the objectives of gaming completely," he said.

In Yugoslavia, he is charged as a World War II mass murderer. Artukovic, 75, has been fight- ng deportation to face war crimes charges for more than 20 years. He says the charges are untrue. He claims he would be a dead man if he were returned ;o Yugoslavia, where, as minis ter of interior of Croatia, he is alleged to have been respon sible for the deaths of as many as 200,000 Serbs, Jews and Gypsies. Only recently, Artukovic wot another round in his long figh to stay in the United States The U.S. Immigration Service decided to continue a stay o deportation. Presumably, hi will be able to live out his lifi here. Artukovic, who was a follow er of Hitler and Mussolini, ha been denounced by some as mass murderer and defends by others as the victim of a political and religious vendetta. Militant Jewish groups hav demanded his deportation. Artukovic became minister o the interior of Croatia after th state was established by Croa tian fascists shortly before Ge many invaded Yugoslavia i 1941. Croatia now is again part of Yugoslavia. He entered the United State under an assumed name 1947. In 1952. the Immigralio Service ordered him deporte for overstaying his leave as a alien. But in 1959, after a bitte legal battle, the deportation o der was suspended on groum that he might be persecuted f political reasons if he were r turned to Yugoslavia. Artukovic was Croatian, R man Catholic and anti-Comm nist. His cause attracted man Catholics. Croats and anti-Corn munists in the United States. Charles Posner, executive rector of the community rel tions committee of the Jewi! Federation Council, the pare body of 535 Jewish health an welfare groups, said: "We have no grief for Art kovic.

"Bebe" Re- tmzo in 1969 paid for nearly tl2,000 in improvements at the President's home in Key Biscayne. Fla.

He pleaded innocent, but iled in his quest for a trial efore the primary in which his lief opponent is state con- roller Houston.I. Flournoy. The trial now is scheduled to )en in Washington D.C.

Gen. ohn Mitchell about the' $400.000 aledge by an ITT subsidiary, heraton Hotels, to underwrite he convention. for a swimming pool, a table and architectural services for the Nixon home. The columnist said he was unable to give exact figures for these other reported payments because he had not gained access to the canceled checks for them. Anderson said the White House declined to comment on the matter. He said Rebozo, contacted through an intermediary, said he did not have his financial records at hand and would have to check them. TEXARKANA. Ark. (AP) -Gov. Dale Bumpers, seeking the Arkansas Democratic senatorial nomination in today's primary, discounted Monday night the assumption that a freshman senator can have only limited effectiveness.

Italy (AP) -- A bomb exploded at an anti-Fascist rally today, killing nine persons and wounding 50. offi- years in the Senate, Mrs. Smith said, "Bill Fulbright's record of achievements is better than Dale Bumpers' promises." Bumpers said that one reason for the national government's credibility problem is that the people see that some of the weathly are not paying their fair share of taxes. He also said the problem was due to inflation and "working people who see prices at the gasoline pumps go up and hear reports of big profits by the oil companies."
