House unit ends inquiry

(Continued from Page 1)
There was no immediate com-
ment last night from Nixon or
his spokesmen.
But four hours before the
committee's final vote, Treas-
ury Secretary William Simon
emerged from a meeting with
Nixon declaring "I've never
seen the President in a more
positive, affirmative frame of
THE COMMITTEE is expect-
ed to take about a week to
prepare the back-up report ac-
companyirg the resolution sent
to the House, including dissent-
ing views of Nixon's defenders.
Those presidential supporters
found themselves on the losing
side of the votes on the three
articles: 27 to 11 on the first,
28 to 10 on the second and 21
to 17 on the third.
The size of the bipartisan
edge on the first two articles
has caused even some of Nix-
on's staunchest defenders to
concede t h at House impeach-
ment is a strong possibility.

Republican Sen. John Tower
of Texas, for example, said yes-
terday the White House view
that the issue will never reach
a Senate trial "is a singularly
unenlightened one."
HOUSE DEBATE is exp2:ted
to start in mid-August and last
about two weeks. If impeach-
ment is voted, congressional
leaders hope to begin a Senate
trial in late September.
The charge that Nixon evaded
income taxes and used federal
funds to improve his California
and Florida homes was :efeat-
ed 26 to 12 after two hatrs of
sometimes acrimonious debate.
The committee rejected by
the same margin an attempt
to cite the secret bombing of
Cambodia as a fourth impoeah-
ment article.
THIS DECISION came a curs
after it had adopted 21 to 17
the third article on Nixon's de-
fiance of the panel's demands
for evidence.
In all, the panel had togg:d

35 hours, 46 minutes in the opwn
phase of its deliberations.
Rep. Edward Mezvinsky (1f-
Iowa) offered an article ctmrg-
ing the President "knowingly
and fraudulently failed to -eps-t
certain income and claimed de-
ductions . . . on his federal
income tax returns which were
not authorized by lair." -
REP. CHARLES Sandman (R-
N.J.) argued . "there is abso-
lutely no attempt to defraud" in
the President's tax returns.
"You cannot be held for fraud
R if you rely on the advice of an
attorney and that's what Rich-
ard Nixon did."
"I'm thoroughly convinced,"
said Mezvinsky "that the evi-
dence justifies-indeed it even
demands-that the President be
called to account for the matler
of how he handled his fei-al
tax returns."
The tax article was b-sed
primarily on findings that be-
cause of improper deductions
for the tax years 1969 through
1972, the President was liable

for $432,787 in back taxes acid
penalties. Nixon subsequently
agreed to pay the amount.
The third article was submit-
ted by the committee's secund
ranking Republican, Rep. Rob-
ert McClory of Illinois, who said
Nixon's defiance of subpoenas
for 147 taped conversations was
"the prime example of stone-
It was the only one of the
impeachment articles sponsored
by a Republican.
The Cambodia proposal mark-
ed the first time all 17 Repub-
licans voted against an im-
peachment article.
Rep. Hamilton Fish Jr. (R-
N.Y.) said "the fact is, we in
the Congress share responsibil-
ity" for keeping the facts of
the Cambodia bombing from the
American people.
Rep. M. Caldwell Butler (R-
Va.) noted that congressional
leaders were told about the
bombing but did not pass the
information to other members

of Congress.
All 17 of ?he Republicans op.
posed the mnution and were
joined by nine of the Demo-
crats, including chairman Peter
The C'ambodia article was of-
'ered by. Rep. John Conyers (D-
Mich.) and charged Nixon "or-
dered and ratified the conceal-
ment from the Congress of the
facts . . . of the scope and
nature of American bombing
operations in Cambodia."
Conyers said Nixon "unilater-
ally took action against another
sovereign nation, then denied to
us and the American people
that he had done so."

Director refutes charges

(Continued from Page 3)
havior after the group sessions
or one-to-one confrontation with
a staff member, according to
Kambly, he is ordered to stand
in the corner or locked in a
seclusion room to "think out"
his difficulties.
While in isolation, the patient
is allowed visitors and is check-
ed by a registered nurse every
half hour, Kambly claimed.
The psychiatrist termed this
approach "innovative" and add-
ed "I don't believe it's fully
understood by those who have
inspected the center."
ALTHOUGH admitting that
the facility's educational pro-
gram at the time of the doc-
tor's inspection- last spring, he
said that two accredited teach-
ers are presently employed at
the center.
"1 now think our academic
nrogram is up to snuff," Kam-
blv said.
In response to charges of
rampant drug abuse at the in-
stitution, Kambly said that be-
cause the residents are not "in-
carcerated" that they have as
much access to illegal sub-
stances as anyone else living in.
the city.
A STAFF member, who con-
ducted a tour of the facility aft-
er the press conference, said

that the patient's rooms are
regularly inspected and that in-
coming residents are searched
upon arrival.
Allegations of improper bill-
ing procedures raised by the
Senate subcommittee resulted
from a bookkeeping system de-
vised by Kambly and the gov-
ernment subsidizing the bulk
of treatment costs at the facil-
ity, the director said.
The Civilian Health and Medi-
cal Program for the Uniformed
Services (CHAMPUS), an agen-
cy operated through the Penta-
gon, paid the center over $.S
million last for services pro-
vided for dependents of mili-
tary personnel.
-CHAMPUS will cut off fund-
ing as of August 26. to addi-
tion the agency no longer covers
medical costs incurred at insti-
tutions not recognized by the
Joint Committee for Accreda-
tion of Hospitals.
The University Center was
refused accredation following
an inspection last March, but
Kambly has requested a re-
evaluation which is scheduled
for late September.
If the Joint Committee finds
the center's program adequate,
CHAMPUS might resume fund-
ing of the facilIty. Kambly,
however, said he will keep the
institution open in any event.
