Monday, September 9, 19f4 HOPE (Attk.) STAR Page Eleven Carson one of Miss America's favorites ** ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — One of the new Miss America's favorite people is television talk show hos: Johnny Carson. And it was visions of Carson that danced before her eyes as she was winning the title. Shirley Cothran, the former Miss Texas, played a jazzy flute medley before a live crowd of 20,400 and a nation- wide television audience Saturday night. Before going on stage, she recalled, "I thought, 'jeepers, Johnny Carson's probably watching me.'" The 21-year-old guidance counsellor from Denton, Tex., cried when she was crowned just before midnight Saturday; cried at a ball later and resumed weeping Sunday morning at a brunch for all 50 con- testants. Her predecessor, Rebecca Ann King of Colorado, shed no tears last year. Between tears, the hazel-eyed brunette told reporters that she loves apple pie; supports abortion, the equal rights amendment and President Ford's pardon of former President Richard M. Nixon; opposes marijuana, and is undecided on amnesty for draft evaders. Miss Colhran, a devout Baptist who. neither smokes nor drinks, is Denton's second Miss America in four years. The other, Phyllis George, was a co- hostess at this year's pageant. Miss Cothran, who has undergraduate and master's degrees from North Texas State University, earned a $15,000 scholarship, plus the chance to make $70,000 or more in appearance fees over the next 12 months. Lucianne Buchanan, who was first runner-up to Miss California but advanced to the title when the winner fell ill, was also first runner-up here, earning a $10,000 scholarship. Miss Illinois, Jean Ahem, was next, followed by Miss Kentucky, Darlene Compton, and Miss Louisianan Libby Lovejoy.

Ford's pardon of Nixon came after days of secret negotiations WASHINGTON (AP) - It was a process shrouded in secrecy, 10 days of deliberations and negoiations that spanned the continent. It ended when President Ford signed with a fett-tip pen a proclamation pardoning Richard M. Nixon "for all offenses against the United States" during the 5% years of his presidency. Ford had set the pardon machinery in motion on Aug. 30 when he asked White House counsel Philip Buchen to determine the answers to two questions: Was there any precedent for granting pardon in advance of any indictment or conviction and how long would any criminal proceedings against Nixon continue? Buchen worked through the Labor Day weekend researching the law on the precedent question and .-conferring with Special Proseputor Leon Jaworski about the duration of any proceedings. Jaworski, wno directed the grand jury that already had named Nixon as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Watergate cover-up, responded with a memo suggesting that jury selection in any Nixon trial, assuming the grand jury eventually indicted the former president, would be delayed for "nine months to a year and perhaps longer" because of unprecedented publicity in the case. The memo was sent to Ford, who never talked directly to Ja- worskifc according to Buchen. Jaworski said later he was not consulted specifically about the pardon decision. Just two days before Ford ordered, Buchen to gear up the pardon machinery, the President had told his first White House news conference that while he shared "he general view and point of view of the American peoople" that Nixon be spared prosecution, he had made no decision on the pardon possibility. It is unclear what led Ford to change his mind so completely and so quickly. White House officials weren't saying. However, some Ford aides say the President's concern grew about Nixon's health as reports circulated that the threat of prosecution was gradually eating away at the former President's peace of mind as he sought tranquility at his San Clemente, Calif, estate. In addition, there were suggestions that Ford had become concerned that action on a pardon might be more difficult and controversial if delayed. Ford expressed concern about Nixon's health when he made his dramatic pardon an- nouncement. One source said the White House was sufficiently disturbed about Nixon's health that former press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler, with Nixon in San Clemente, was contacted last week and asked about Nixon's situation. The source quoted Ziegler as saying there had been no change in Nixon's health. On the other hand, a man who has seen Nixon in the last four days described him as having aged considerably since his resignation. Whatever inspired Ford's decision, the execution was swift in coming. Last Thursday, Ford tentatively decided to grant a pardon and he dispatched Washington attorney Benton Becker to San Clemente relay the news: Becke also was to complete negotiations DF an agreement including access to Nixon's White House files during the next three years and possible use in the Watergate prosecutions White House officials later insisted that the pardon was not connected with the agreement or with any statement of contrition on Nixon's part. But one official • conceded that Ford knew "in a general way" what Nixon would say after the pardon was signed. Magnuson credited with raising party funds from airline officials WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Warren G. Magnuson, head of a committee that handles airline legislation, was credited with raising $9,450 from a dozen airline executives for the Democratic party in 1972, according to court documents. Some of the executives contacted by The Associated Press said that the Washington Democrat had asked for the money, or that they gave it out of personal friendship with him. Magnuson, who is chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, served in 1972 on the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which raises donations for the party's Senate candidates. A Magnuson spokesman had no immediate comment. The airline donations came into the committee in a two-day period, Oct. 25 and 26, 1972. In the once-secret ledgers of the committee, someone wrote the nickname "Maggie" next to each of the gifts as they were recorded. In other cases, such marginal notations indicated that money was to be passed through secretly to the individual candidate whose name was written. The Associated Press reported on Sunday that a number of candidates received donations from various sources in this manner in 1972, including Sen. Thomas J. Mclntyre, D-N.H., Sen. John J. Sparkman, D-Ala., Sen. Sam Nunn, D-Ga., former Rep. Ray Blanton, D-Tenn., and Barefoot Sanders, unsuccessful Democratic candidate for the Senate in Texas. In Magnuson's case the money was not passed through to him, because he was not running Officials of the senatorial committee said the "Maggie" notation meant that Magnuson received credit for raising the money. On Oct. 25, the campaign committee wrote "Maggie" beside the following donations: $800 from Arthur F. Kelley, then a vice president and now president of Western Airlines; $3,000 from George Spater, then president of American Airlines; $300 from John J. Casey, executive vice president of Bran iff International; $400 from Robert H. Burck, another Braniff vice president, and $850 from Robert Six, president of Continental Airlines. The following day, the committee listed "Maggie" for donations from seven executives of United Air Lines, including $1,100 from president Edward Em Carlson, $1,000 from retired vice president Robert Johnson, $550 from executive vice president Charles McErlean, $250 from senior vice president Ralph Gleason, $500 from senior vice president E. O. Fennell, $500 from general manager R. L. Mangold, and $200 from general manager Percy Wood. United's president Carlson said through a spokesman that he recalls that Magnuson, whom he had known for 35 years, had spoken to him about "the need for help" for Democratic candidates. The spokesman said "it is entirely possible" that the other United donations which came in on the same day were solicited in turn by Carlson from his subordinates. "He may very well have spoken to some of his friends about this need," the spokesman said. Kelley, of Western Airlines, said "As I recall it ... they were having some lifficulty in the Democratic campaign." He said he recalls sending his $800 "out of my personal acquaintance with Sen. Magnuson." Kelley said he could not recall that Magnuson asked him directly for the money. Braniff's Casey said he is certain that Magnuson did not approach him about the contribution. "I know that Sen. Magnuson didn't approach ine, because I don't know the gentleman," Casey said. The 12 airline donations are the only ones in the campaign committee's books credited to Magnuson. Spater, who nave $3,000. pleaded guilty last year to donating $55,000 in coxaorate money to then-President Richard M. Nixon's 1972 campaign. However, there was no indication that Spater's donation to the Democrats, or any of the other airline officials' gifts, were from corporate funds. All appeared small enough to be well within the personal means of the executives. Magnuson's conumttee often passes on legislation in -vhich the airlines have a financial stake. However, no Important airline bills were pending before tht- committee at the tune of the "Maggie" donations.
