Observer Staffer Lindsay Davis interviewed the Senate
Majority Leader Mike Mansfield, concerning the crisis that we
have in this country. He asked the Senator if he planned to do
anything about the prayers in the schools for the New Year
and the senator told that he was going to start working on it
around the 5th of January . Ml'. Davis explained that it was a
bad situation, when they took the prayers out of the schools.
The senator said that he was goint to introduce this bill to the
Senate and feels that he can get it through the Senate.
However, it might be more difficult to get it passed through
the House. Mr. Davis said if senate passes the bill , it would be
passed by the congress and president. Also that this was the
reason for the law breakdown in this country and especially in
the metropolitan area schools of D.C. The senator agreed and
said that this will be his first assignment when he retu n o

Rules For Impeachment
of Government Officials
Any member of the House may introduce an impeachment
resolution. The speaker may then call for an immediate vote,
refer it to a committee, or rule it out of order.
If the resolution goes to a committee (Judiciary or a special
unit), that committee may hold hearings or conduct an
investigation, hiring whatever staff it deems necessary.
If the committee approves the resolution and sends it to
the House floor as articles of impeachment, the House then
votes. A simple majority is all that is needed.
If approved, the impeachment case is presented to the
Senate. sitting as a jury with a delegation of House members
acting as prosecutors and the Chief Justice of the United
States sitting as judge.
During the Senate trial, the impeached official may have
lawyers of his own, present evidence or testify himself.
t takes a two-thirds vote of the Senate to convict.
The stiffest penalty the Senate may impose is removal from
office and disqualification from holding any other office in the
future. Further penalties if any, are left to the courts.
The history and procedures of the impeachment process
have been catalogued in a 718-page manual recently
authorized by the House Judiciary Committee and published
by the Government Printing Office.
