WASINGTON /1 - President Nixon
yesterday sent the house Judiciary Com-
mittee a new tape transcript his lawyer
said proved Nixon was "not aware of
and in fact disapproved' of hush money
payments to Watergate break in defend-
But the eleventh-hour move protpted
some Democrats to denounce the partial
transcript as insulting, too limited and
MEANWIILE, the committee's sec-
ond-ranking Republican, Rep Robert Me-
Clory of Illinois, predicted the cotit-
tee will recommend impeacment and
that the full Iouse will vote to impeach
McClory said that a meeting yester-
day afternoon between Stouse Republi-
can leaders and most of the 17 commit-
tee Republicans showed that about four
of the GOl' committee members would
vote against recommending impeach-
ment, four or five would vote for such a
recommendation and that eight or nine,
including himself, are currently undecid-
ed how they will vote when the com-
mittee begins formal consideration of
articles of impeachmentnext week
However, Rep Charles Wiggins, (R-
Calif.), Nixon's leading defender on the
committee, said he disagrees with Mc-
Clory's assessment on the outcome of
the impeachment inquiry. Wiggins pre-
dicted that the tHouse will vote against
impeachment by a 40 to 50 margin. Ie
earlier had predicted all committee Re-
publicans would oppose recommending
AFTER NIXON'S lawyer James St.
Clair produced the tape transcript dur-
ing his final arguments before the com-
mittee, a number of committee Demo-
crats denounced his action.
Wiggins welcomed the new evidence,
saying: "I'm happy to get any evidence
bearing on the case."
St. Clair said the 2%a-page transcript
of a portion of a conversation between
Nixon and former White ouse aide t.
R. "Bob" Haldeman on March 22, 1973,
showed Nixon telling Haldeman the day
after $75,00 was paid to Watergate con-
spirator Howard Hutl that blackmai

The College of Architecture and Design
will be divided into two separate units
this September-a School of Art and a
College of Architecture and Urban Plan-
The division, approved at a Regents'
meeting May 17, will coincide with the
completion of a North Campus building
that will provide new facilities for the
programs in art, architecture and urban
LAST MONTH, President Robben
Fleming announced that Prof. Robert
Metcalf, chairman of the University
Architecture department, will be named
dean of the College of Architecture for
a one-year term. The Regents are ex-
pected to formally approve the appoint-
ment at their next meeting, July 25.
The Regents also announced last month
that Prof. George Bayliss, chairman of
the art department, will serve as Dean
of the new School of Art.
The change is basically an adminis-
trative one, and will not affect academic
requirements, classes or degree pro-
grains presently in operation.
THE NEW administrative set-up fol-
lows the recommendations of a 13-mem-
ber review committee, chaired by Dr.
Geoffrey Norman director of the Insti-
tute for Environmental Quality.
The Norman report contended that the.
departments of art and architecture now
"have little common ground. The free-
dom of each area to develop should pro-
vide a more propituous setting than the
present uneasy coexistence,"
Metcalf said that the departments
"had gone separate ways in recent
years." He added that the competition
between the units had resulted in a
"number of conflicts over the budget."
THE NORMAN committee is also in-
vestigating other possibilities for co-op-
eration between the College of Architec-
ture and Urban Planning and other de-.
One proposal involves creating a Col-
lege of Environmental Resources, Plan-
ning and Design, that would encompass
the present College of Architecture and
the School of Natural Resources.
Assistant Prof. of Urban Planning Paul
Ray said the split in the Architecture
and Design College will be "temporary.
I'm hoping it will be a transition to a
much broader arrangement."
