Northwest Arkansos TIMES, Mon., July 29, 1974 FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS During Home Trips Judiciary Panel Reports Voter Support By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS President Nixon "allowed the rule of law, Ihc very cement of our civilization, to slip under the boots of arrogance, on- pression and abuse." says one ot the six House Judiciary C o m m i t t e e Republicans t o recommend ipcachmcnt. For that reason, and despite Nixon's significant and lasting contributions to world peace, the decision is one "I will be able to live with for the rest of my life," Rep. William S. Cohen, K-Maine, said Sunday. Cohen, 33, spoke to a statewide television audience in Maine the day after the committee recommended 27 to H that Nixon be impeached for obstruction of justice in the Watergate cover-up. He was one of a handful of Judiciary Committee members to return home for the short break. The panel was scheduled to resume its consideration of articles of impeachment today. Six Republicans joined all of the committee's Democrats in voting to recommend impeachment. All those opposed were Republicans. Those who returned to home districts said they found response from constituents favorable. ' ' T h e r e i s overwhelming support in my district for impeachment." said Rep. Charles B. Rangel, D-N.Y. Rangel, who kicked off his re-election campaign in Harlem S u n d a y night, said his mail was running 20 to 1 for removal of Nixon from office. Rep. Elizabeth 'Holtzman, D- N.Y., said she expects her Brooklyn constituents to support her in the difficult decision. VOTERS SUPPORT COHEN The Maine Sunday Telegram said Cohen's Washington office had received 397 communications from Maine in the 38 hours after the committee opened public discussion on articles of impeachment on Wednesday. The paper said 281 of the communications favored impeachment. Rep. Joseph J. Marazili, R- N.J., on the other hand, said he surveyed about 300 persons attending an Elks clambake in Clinlon, N.J., on Sunday and "about 08 per cent were in support of my vote." Maraziti voted against impeachment. Rep. Charles W. Sandman Jr., R-N.J., who also voted against impeachment. told about 40 staff and supporters in Atlantic City he still maintains there is insufficient evidence of wrongdoing to impeach Nixon. But Sandman said. "I am not here to defend Richard Nixon, but the Constitution of the United States as I understand I." Sandman predicted the House of Representatives would vote to impeach the President by a slim margin. Marazili said he couldn't forecast the House vote -- "It will detmilel ybe v e r y close either way." Rep. Wiley Mayne. R-Iowa, who voted against the article of impeachment, said he had not sampled constituent opinion since the committee action. But in a statement, Mayne declared. "My vote on the first article of impeachment Saturday night was the most difficult I have ever cast. There is no question about w h a t serious crimes have been committed by the P r e s i d e n t ' s closest assistants. "But there is still no clear and convincing evidence to support the charge that he personally planned t h e Watergate cover-up and obstructed its investigation." DENNIS THE MENACE By Ketcham Printers Okay 11-Year Pact With Papers NEW YORK ( A P ) -- The printers union has approved an extraordinary 11-year contract with The New York Times and The Daily News, allowing the two newspapers to move ahead unimpeded toward automated typesetting. The printers, members of typographical Union No. C of the International Typographical Union. Af'L-CIO, voted 1,009 to 41 Sunday to accept an agreement reached late in May after more than a year of ' it'ter off and on negotiations. "We're at that point now where we got everything we could get without going out on the street," said Bertram Powers, president of the local. "We're going to sec more changes in the next 10 years than any ever seen." Man Missing Nine Years Is Found Living In California ~*V In fact, the printers did take · to the streets during a work stoppage at The Daily News in - May, but the newspaper contin- ;" ued publishing, using automated typesetting, although it sustained' heavy losses in advertising pages. The new contract, which expires March 30, 1984, gives the 1,400 regular printers and 385 fulltime substitutes virtual lifetime job security with bonuses and other incentives should they choose to retire or work elsewhere. The contract provides fo a 3 per cent wage increase each March 31 and cost-of-living iro- tection based on metropolitan area statistics. In return, publishers of the two newspapers will have no restrictions in introducing auto mated "cold type" and in determining the number of em- ployes needed to operate it.

Tudor of the Arkansas State Police said Saturday that James D. Blucker had told him be was having financial difficulties nine years ago, so he cut his finger and smeared blood on his truck to make it appear that he had met h foul play. Then, Blucker left Arkansas. Tudor said Blucker, 43, had told him that looked like "the Price Of Seafood Should Decline GLOUCESTER, Mass.

(AP) -- AMPEX Corp. has agreed in return for a payment of $13 million to drop allegations that IBM Corp. infringed on some of its patents and violated anti-trust laws. The settlement approved Saturday by the AMPEX board of directors also calls for the two firms to exchange existing and future patent licenses covering their respective business interests in the data processing field. A joint statement by the two firms said AMPEX agreed in return for the $13 million payment to drop charges, denied by IBM, that IBM infringed upon AMPEX tape and disk patents and violated anti-trust laws in the marketing of peripheral equipment and memory products. The agreement frees IBM from the possibility of having another costly suit brought against it. The company already is involved in litrgation with Memorex and Telex, two other data processing f i r m s . AMPEX President A r t h u r Hausman and IBM Board Chairman P'rank Cary said in the joint statement they were "pleased that this agreement has succeeded in avoiding time- consuming and costly litigation over the issues of patents and anti-trust. "Because of this, and because of the exchange of licenses that will result, we believe that both companies will benefit," they said. "There should be some pretty good buys on seafood in the weeks ahead," said Han] McAvoy, a market specialis for the Nalional Marine Fish erics Service in Gloucesler. Most fish sold in the Unitd Slates is frozen, and ware houses are full of it. Reserve are 49 per cent higher than a year ago, according to federa estimates. "There has been a very poo market in 1974, especially dur ing Lent, which still is an im porfant time for the fishing in dustry. It didn't materializ this year," McAvoy said. Frozen fillets of domestic sold for 80 cents a pound las April on Ihe wholesale market Now they go for 87 cents Flounder fillets have decline from $1 a pound on March 6 t 83 cents. Medium sized white Gul shrimp have dropped from $2 pound on M a r c h 25 to $1.61 now. Last year, when meat price were hitting all lime highs, an nual consumplion of fish in th United Stales rose to 121 pounds per person. It had bee around 11 pounds for man years. This year, fish processors in creased their imports from foi eign suppliers to meet expecte demand. It never materialize because of the squeeze on t h consumer dollar and the avai ability of some cheaper poullr and meat cuts, McAvoy said. Warehouse holdings of froze fish were 409.6 million tons o June 30, Marine Fisheries sail A year ago, they were 273. million.

Tudor said he went to Wiliams in the fall of 1972 to ques- ion Blucker so the State Poice's Criminal Investigation Di- 'ision could close its file on his disappearance. Three days after Blucker's disappearance, a felony bad check warrant was issued for im by the Pulaski County jrosecutor's office, which asked he United States attorney's of- ice to issue an unlawful flight varrant for Blucker. Authorities had learned about Mucker's financial problems and already had speculated hat he had left the state. Eventually, the charges were dropped because arrangements had been made by relatives to make restitution, Tudor said.

So far the committees have not given Mrs. Petty's race priority, the official said. Mrs. Petty is opposing the re-election bid of Rep. Wilbur D Mills, D-Ark.
