' ' ' ' · Panel Members Agree eac WASHINGTON (AP) -- Special Counsel John Doar presented evidence for President Nixon's impeachment that he called "substantial and persuasive" to the House Judiciary Committee on Saturday. One member apparently persuaded by Doar's presentation was Rep. George Danielson, p- Calif., who'emerged from closed-door, briefing to say. have no choice but to vote' for impeachment." :: Other members w i t h h e l d comment on the vote they will cast in about a week, but there was.-. general agreement that Doar and Minority Counsel Albert Jenner had put together an impressive documentary case. · "I think It Is a very effective job they have done so . far," said Rep. William Cohen, R- Maine, one of a half-dozen com- 'mittee Republicans who say they have not yet decided how to vote. Rep. David Dennis, R-Ind., a strong defender of Nixon, called Doar ,"a very , effective advocate." At the .same time, the President's staff made public a legal jrief in which presidential lawyer James D. SI. Clair sought lo refute in detail a broad range of,charges against Nixon. A major part of it dealt with [he .questions .of p'aymehts to Watergate defendant E. How ard Hunt Jr. It cited an often-quoted -remark by Nixon telling John W. Dean III: "Well, for C--sakes, get it ..." St. Clair argued this quote Dean's "obviously . suggestion refers - to that Hunt should be given some 'signal' and not money. "Significantly, at no point In his testimony, either before the Senate Select Committee or before the grand jury did even John Dean accuse the President of having authorized any payments to Hunt. Dean testified: 'The monety matter was left very much hanging at that meeting. - Nothing was resolved.'." . · - . ' - · At the Judiciary, hearing, members said Doar picked up where he left off,Friday with a recital'of'.events', .that he said placed Nixon in the center of a White House-directed plan 'to conceal- the .involvement . o f presidential aides in the Watergate cover-up. "With respect to the plan," a transcript of .Dear's opening remarks Friday shows him saying, "I say that decision came directly from the President or was implemented through his two closest associates, H.R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman i . ' . ' "Bellowing that, I say the President made the decision to cover-up this shortly after the break-in on June 17, 1972, and that he has been in charge of he cover-up from -that day for ward."

House Banking Head Calls For Limit On Interest Rates -WASHINGTON (AP) -Chairman Wright Patman of the House Banking Committee says a limit on interest rates and mandatory allocation of credit would 'go a long way toward curing the nation's economic ills.

That, he said, would make quite a difference. "It isn't just the Democrats hat will be elected, but the kind of Democrats," he said. They'll come in here mad as riting sows." Sows take to biting when they lave piglets to protect, the one- ime tenant farm boy explained -- "they are the. most dangerous thing there is." Patman contemplates a na- ional ceiling on interest rates and requiring lendjng in- titutions, for example, to put a Described portion of their unds'into home mortgages. "Low and moderate income people simply are being priced ut of the housing market," Batman said. BATTLES INTERESTS Since he entered Congress in .929 Patman, 80, has been Battling what he views as sinister influences of big banks, monopolistic .business and a Federal Reserve System;unduly in- 'luenccd by bankers. · Now, in the midst of hearings on the current record interest rates and on Federal Reserve policies, and often challenged by members of his own committee, he insists he is not discouraged. "I have hope because the people can't tolerate this ·.." Patman said. "We're building up to a climax and a dangerous situation ... "When the sheriff begins selling ranches and farms, that's a srgnal." The signal he hears is that of a coming depression, but he says it is not inevitable. Patman agrees that Franklin D. Roosevelt could not have achieved his social and fiscal the REP.

' Players Many And Varied Island Deadly Game Board A News Analysis By NICK I.UDINGTON BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) Every time the game of "Cyprus" is played at least seven players sit down at the table. Greece, Turkey, Turkish Cypriots, Greek Cypriots, Britain, the United Stales and the Soviet Union are the regulars. Recently there has been a new player, invited by Greece: Greek Cypriots opposed to Archbishop Makarios. What do the players want? Greece: wants Cyprus.

Cyprus is only '45 miles from Turkey's .southern coast :and Greek annexation would change the balance of power between the two uneasy NATO allies.

Turkish Cypriots: want .what Turkey . wants, Both would settle for a form of federation n which Turkish Cypriols had substantial autonomy in the areas they inhabit, scattered all over the island. Anti-Makarios Greek Cypriots: want what Greece wants -- union with Greece. Pro-Makarios Greek Cy priots: pay lip service to union with Greece. But they really like their non-aligned indepen- ence, particularly since the mil itary took over in Athens. Britain: wants its sovereign military bases on Cyprus but despite its responsibilities as former colonial power and guarantor of the island's inde pendence, does not want a lot of fuss and expense.
