A-1 2 CINCINNATI ENQUIRERSatur any, November 5, 1977 Registration War Rages Right Up To Voting Day BY STEVE WILSON Columbus Bureau Chief COLUMBUS, Ohio -The political campaign over the future of Instant registration In Ohio headed Into Its final hours Friday with both sides on the Issue accusing the other of distorting the truth and reports of large ambunts of money coming In to aid both supporters and opponents. The director of the group trying to push through a constitutional amendment Tuesday to repeal Ohio's instant registration law accused the opposition Friday of operating a campaign based on "misinformation, half truths and outright distortions." Arthur Peterson of Ohloans for the Preservation of Honest Elections (OPHE), said the opposition committee on State Issue One has tried to "hoodwink the voters" Into believing the issue would take away their right to vote. But the opposition, Citizens to Save the Right to Vote (CSRV), has been operating a week-long campaign to shoot down what it maintains are "falsehoods" put out by OPHE. THE HONEST elections committee has claimed the election day registration law lends Itself to potential fraud In Ohio elections while the citizens group claims repeal of the law, in effect, would dlslnfranchlse thousands of the state's voters. The proponent group for Instant registration also managed Friday to enlist two more endorsements for Its cause including Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey (D-Minn.) and the national president of the League of ohio news Women Voters, Ruth C. Clausen of Wisconsin. Both endorsements came In letters released by CSRV. Meanwhile, one of the chief foes of instant registration In Ohio, Republican Secretary of State Ted W. Brown, claims thousands of dollars In out-of-state money Is being funneled Into Ohio to defeat Issue One. State labor leaders and CSRV spokesmen denied the reports, although sources close to the United Auto Workers (UAW) Union reported the UAW was dumping $250,000 Into the campaign to help defeat the Instant registration repeal. Labor sources maintained, however, hefty corporate contributions also were expected to come In to help push through the repeal movement. OFFICIALLY, BOTH campaign committees say they expect to be outspent by the other with neither group expecting to spend more than $400,000 In the campaign. Pre-election expense reports showed the honest elections group spent $167,717 and the right to vote group, $181,566 as of last month. If the proposed amendment Is approved by voters Tuesday, It would repeal the recently-enacted law allowing voters to register on election day and set up a four-year purge of registration lists for those who do not vote. Other major parts of the law, however, such as door-to-door and postcard registration procedures would be left In the law. Carter Signs Bill Outlawing Dumping In Ocean WASHINGTON (AP)-Presldent Carter signed legislation Friday protecting the environment from industrial growth and sewage pollution, then met with representatives of environmental groups and said the nation has become more sensitive to their cause. Mr. Carter placed his signature on a measure prohibiting the dumping of municipally treated sewage into the oceans after December 31, 1981. He also signed a bill increasing the size of the Tlni-cum wetlands preserve near Philadelphia. Mr. Carter told the envlronmen-tallsts at a meeting later In the Cabinet Room his administration has "made some progress" In Increasing "the concern of the American people In the quality of our environment." Calling the environmentalists "close allies" as well as "tough critics," President Carter told them he and officials In his administration have come to "a realization of the struggle you've been carrying on for many years." AT THE bill signing, Mr. Carter said wistfully he misses the chance to spend time in the solitude of the outdoors. He called Tlnicum "a place where Philadelphlans can find a moment of solitude and rest a part of life that I remember with great relish and miss very much." The remark drew laughter from congressmen and senators present for the signing. "The pressure is great around any urban center to expand the Industrial development Into areas of great natural Importance," Mr. Carter said. "And city dwellers particularly need to have near their own homes, particularly those who do not have the financial ability to travel far and wide, a part of the earth and environment as it was originally granted to us for our stewardship." The Tlnicum bill adds 78 dredged acres to the 296-acre marshland preserve. The dredge sites will be restored for use as part of the wildlife habitat. THE MEASURE also Increases the existing $3.85 million authorization for acquisition and development of the area to $11.1 million. The antl-pollutlng legislation, which amends the Marine Protection, Research and Sanctuaries Act, authorizes $4.8 million for the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) ocean dumping program. It also authorizes $6.5 million for Commerce Department research on the effects of ocean dumping and $500,000 for the department's program which designates marine sanctuaries. Before the "population explosion" along national seashores, Mr. Carter said, ocean dumping was acceptable. But now, he said, dumping Is endangering "one of our most precious possessions." "It represents a great threat of damage to the beauty of life and to our tourist resources," Mr. Carter said. Senate Favors Wage Ceiling For Social Security Recipients WASHINGTON (AP)-The Senate turned down a proposal Friday that would have let most elderly Social Security recipients earn an unlimited amount of money without losing any of their pensions. Instead, senators voted to raise the celling on earnings allowed without affecting pensions from the current $3000 a year to $6000 for people 65 through 71. The Senate action would eliminate a ceiling for 70-and 71-year-old retirees in 1982. The provision was approved 59-28 as senators continued debating how to raise Social Security taxes on workers and their employers to shore up the financially-troubled system. In another vote, Vice President Walter F. Mondale cast the tiebreaker as the Senate defeated, 42-41, an amendment by Sen. Carl T. Curtis (R-Neb.) that would have continued the tradition of employers and employees paying equal shares of Social Security taxes. The vote was Mondale's first since becoming vice president and president of the Senate. THE CURTIS amendment was a substitute for a tax-Increase formula, written by the Senate Finance Committee, that for the first time would have required employers to pay a greater share than workers. Approval of the higher earnings limit blocked a vote on a proposal by Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz.) to eliminate the ceiling completely. The Carter administration had urged Congress to keep the current earnings celling for the time being. The action by the Senate would raise the $3000 celling to $4500 next year and to $6000 in 1979. Three, years later, the only remaining ceiling would apply to people between the ages of 65 and 69. The ceiling means that a retiree loses $1 of his pension for each $2 earned above $3000 a year. Ohio's High Schoolers Doing Well In Comparison With Counterparts COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP)-Desplte a ' nationwide dip In high school Scholastic Aptitude Test scores, figures released Friday show Ohio students continue to out-perform their counterparts. "While It is true that test scores have declined nationally, If you take these tests as a standard for measuring Ohio students' performance, the Ohio figures tell a success story," said Franklin B. Walter, state superintendent of public Instruction. . Going back to the 1968-1969 school year, the Ohio study shows that national SAT mathematics scores were an average of 491 out of possible 800. In Ohio schools that year the average was 507. .SINCE THAT year, while nation al levels have been falling consistently to 470 of 800 last year, Ohio dipped slightly in the early 1970s but has risen back to the 1968-69 level Walter also produced figures for verbal scores that show a similar pattern. The national average nine years ago was 462 while Ohio students were 10 points higher. But on the verbal scale Ohio has not climbed back to Its average of nine years ago and now is standing at 459. The national verbal average is 429, off 33 points from 1968-1969. "It Is disturbing that recent reports about declining national standards have led the public to lose faith," Walter said. But, "Nowhere in the recent report on SAT scores does it say that schools are to blame." Pamphlet To Spell Out Possible Risks Of IUDs WASHINGTON (AP)-Starting Monday, three million women who use Intrauterine devices for contraception must be given a special pamphlet by their physicians explaining the possible risks of the devices. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is requiring the brochures as a latest step in Its campaign to give patients more information about prescription drugs and medical devices. THE BROCHURE describes the Intrauterine device, or IUD, and advises a woman how to check to see If It remains In place, what side effects may occur and what to do If pregnancy occurs with the IUD In place. The FDA began requiring that a similar pamphlet in plain language be distributed with birth control pills in 1970, and it required a pamphlet for the female sex hormone estrogen starting October 18. Some doctors and pharmacists oppose the mandatory pamphlets and argue that reading about possible risks may discourage patients from taking medicine they need. John H.
