7 - 1974 Middle East Junket May Divert Attention From Watergate By WALTER R. WEARS W A S H I N G T O N (AP) President Nixon is playing his strong suit with his journeys to the. Middle East and Moscow while congressional investigators inch toward a preliminary judgment about his impeachment. But he will return to find Watergate waiting. A verdict from Congress is months away. Nixon always has emphasized foi-eign policy, and the quest for a stahle world peace, as his primary mission in the White House. The travels lie hegins Monday will underscore that theme, and identify him more directly with the successful Middle East diplomacy of Secretary of Slate ilonry A. Kissinger. Furthermore, .when operating in the realm ot foreign policy, presidents generally are treated more kindly by t h e i r critics than when they are functioning at home, on matters domestic. Senate Democratic Leader Mike Manslield lias said Nixon is entitled to bipartisan support for his foreign policy undertakings. That is the traditional attitude. SUPPORT ERODING But it appears to be eroding. Applauding Kissinger's success in achieving a disengagement aggrccmont between Israel and Syria, Democratic Sen. Frank Church of Idaho said: "The proposed follow-up trip to Ihe Middle East by President Nixon is unnecessary. I do not see what benefit such a lour would be except for the President himself." The President plans to leave ;Monday, visit five Middle Eastern Nations between J u n e VI and 18, return home for a ^veek, and then depart for rMoscow. and summit t a l k s !beginning June 7. I The Moscow trip, too, has drawn some Democratic criticism. : While Nixon travels, the impeachment i n q u i r y will cnntin- iue, presumably in private sessions of the House Judician 'Committee. . There have been no televised hearings, no dramatic new disclosures, hut instead (he labori- · ous and lengthy process of Us temng-to impeachment evidence in executive session Tin.
