MEARS WASHINGTON (AP) -- Ne ther Congress nor the Whi House appears to be in ar rush for judgment on the im peachment of President iVixon and each blames the other fo delaying the process. So, white a congressiona committee investigates the sues, there is cloakroom dis cussion and speculation abou the politics of the case and th timetable for action. In an elec tion year, politics and timin. are intertwined. It is evident that a Senate im peachment trial, if It comes t that, will coincide with the fa' congressional election cam paign. One White House o f f i c i a l con tended t h a t is what Nixon' critics have wanted all along to have the Watergate issu peak while voters are dccidin^ between Republican and Demo cratic candidates in Oie Nov. elections. The counter-argument in Con gress is iJyit the White House i stalling the impeachment pro ceedings by withholding ev dence, and by pressing th House Judiciary Committee to summon witnesses for p u b 11 testimonv. SPECULATION There is congressional specu lation that Nixon strategist might seek to delay any Scnat vote until affer the elections, on the theory tbat, freed of elec tion pressures, some Rcpubli cans might more easily be wo to the President's defense, i White House official denie there is any such plan, sayin the President simply wants t make his case and put it to House vote. Such a vote is unlikely befor August, and if a House major ily then favored impeachment the case would go to the Senal for a trial that might sta shortly after Labor Day. A Senate source said that o such a timetable, a verdic could be rendered during th current session of Congress, al though probably not before th FAMttYWmClY-JoneU -y ^ U..JT t i^, v Beauty and You: Strategies For Surviving The Son there's ao need lo slocl; if m left of bottiet and tubes."

It would take a two- thirds vote in the Senate to convict and thus oust him. If a post-election vote might work lo the President's advantage, a delay into 1975 likely would hurt his cause, since Democrats are expected lo in crease their Senate majority. But at this point, politicians are in uncharted territory, fm- peachment is not an issue [hey hare encountered hc'forc. JULY 15 WINDUP The Judiciary Committee is aiming for a July 15 windup of its inquiry, although some members think it will take longer, and such deadlines have been slipping by since April 3D. While a presidential aide accused Democrats of trying to string out the process, he also said White House lawyers want a chance to call witnesses and present briefs setting forth the Nixon defense lefore the proceedings are ended. Ni.xori askd (lie House panel lo call "live witnesses who can place the existing evidence in perspective, and subject them lo cross-examination under oath" in his latest refusal to yield subpoenaed While House material. That drew criticism from Republicans as well as Democrats. The committee's 17 Republi cans agreed unanimously that. in view of Nixon's refusal to deliver more materials, witnesses should be called lo testify. W h i l e Ihe committee has said Nixon's refusal to supply more tapes and documents slowed its inquiry, the President contends a request from the panel doesn't automatically make something into evidence.
