Henry too?
Secretary of State Henry Kissinger has told senior
members of Congress that he would feel compelled to
resign if the House of Representatives votes to impeach
the President, the Washington Star-News said yester-
day. The newspaper said Kissinger "felt he could not
effectively conduct the foreign policy of the United
States if the President is impeached." Kissinger, con.-
ferring with Latin American leaders in Mexico City, de-
scribed the Star-News report as "nonsense."

House ~
By Tile AP and Reuter -
WASHINGTON - President
Nixon could be impeached for
noncriminal offenses, accord-
ing to a report released yester-.
day by the House Judiciary
Committee's legal staff.
The report, which was at-
tacked by the top Republican
commiteemember, greatly
expands the grounds for im-
In its most significant finldings,
the memnorandum - compiled by
committee chief council John Doar
and minority council Albert Janner
-states that criminal law alone is
not applicable to the process of
removing a president from office.
"THE CRIMINAL LAW . . . does
not address itself to the abuses of
presidential power," says the docu-

ment. "In an impeachment pro-
ceeding a president is called to
account for abusing powers which
only a president possesses"
Chairman Peter Rodino (D-N.J
Mich) at a news conference at
which the memorandum was dis-
tributed, made it clear it in no way
reflected ~the committee's position
on the crucial question of what
constitutes an impeachable offense.
Rodin caled it a useful tool
that would helpvidhemembers maken

grounds exist for impeaching Nixon.
to the committee, it does not speak
for the committee." And he left
no doubt that it did not speak for
"It supports a broader concept
of impeachment than I would think
wise in dealing with a president,"
said Hutchinson, who added that
he believed criminal behavior
should be required before a presi-
dent was removed from office.

tional Convention ortepreeet
of the House to support the narrow
vie esousd by Hutchinson.
"IN DRAWING articles of im-
peachment the House has placed
little emphasis on criminal con-
duct," the memorandum says.
"...Much more common are
allegations that the officer has

violated his duties or his oath or
seriously undermined public con-
fidence in his ability to perform his
official functions."
Turning specifically to the stan-
dards against which a president
must be judged, the memorandum
states that no precise criteria can
be listed.
The brief also says the duty of
a president to "preserve, protect
and defend the Constitution in-
cludes the duty not to abuse his
powers or transgress their limits-
not to violate the rights of citizens,
such as those guaranteed by the
Bill of Rights, and not to act in
derogation of powers vested else-
where by the Constitution."

andum "very, very high. It must
be conduct so grave that it amounts
to a subversion of the system of
government and the Constitution
itself." He added that "it comes
very close to criminalt."
There were reports from some
members that Jenner was at one
time considering filing minority
views but joined in the memoran-
dum when provisions that would
have made it even broader were
With the memorandum to guide
it, Rodino said the committee was
now ready to seek evidence from
the White House. A request listing
specific tapes, documents and logs
is being prepared, he said, and will
be sent to the White House no later
than early next week.

Author Robert Allen saw M9al-
colm X shot to death exactly nine
years ago. h
Allen, editor of the Black Shol-
ar - now a name in his own right
- is well able to draw an auditor-
ium full of students when he lec-
tures in tribute to the martyred
black militant.
THE AUTHOR spoke as part of
the Black History Week series
sponsored by the University's Cen-
ter for Afro-American Studies.
In 1965, Allen said, he was an

unhappy Columbia student living
in Harlem's slums. He came to a
church meeting one evening in
February to hear Malcolm X, who
had proposed a plan for changing
the economic and political struc-
ture of the New York ghetto.
Allen remembers a "flash and
an explosion." He thought that
someone had merely thrown a fire-
cracker into the building to frigh-
ten the crowd.
lIE REALIZED in horror that
the noise was a shotgun blast -
five more followed in succession.
Everyone in the room dove to the

floor. The blasts continued for
what Allen described as "an eter-
"I honestly thought that some-
one was trying to kill all the people
in the audience," the editor said.
When Allen finally rose to his
feet he looked around him to see
how many people had been killed.
To his amazement, apparently no
one was hurt.
But when he turned, almost cas-
ually, to the stage, he saw Mal-
colm X lying murdered, aides des-
perately trying to administer ar-
tificial respiration.
When Allen walked home that
night he said it seemed as if he
walked "into a world filled with
assassins and killers"
"MALCOLM X is dead," Allen
said emphatically, "but his ideas
hAllen mentioned thatttheleader
-slain at the height of his power--
articulated the present belief
among black militants that the
capitalist system must be com-
pletely dismantled before black
self-determination is possible. .
Malcolm X also believed, if

Allen emphasized. "Peace without
justice is a contradiction. In the
search for justice, Malcolm X con-
doned armed self-defense for the
black community.

for solidarity on an international
