Comedy Hour will be revived at Henderson ARKADELPHIA Ark. (AP) — The Amateur Hijinx of the Original Ted Mack Comedy Hour will be revived Monday night at Henderson State College, and Ted Mack, the emcee of the now defunct nationally televised show, will anchor the event. Mack, 71, says he does only about one of these shows a month and that this is his first college benefit in Arkansas in some time. The comedy hour, which was broadcast for 23 years, went off the air in September 1970. Mack says the show was taken off because of football interest in the show's time slot. He says every time a football game would overrun its own time, it fell into the comedy hours lime. "We were pre-empted so many times from 1965-69 that the Geritol people decided not to reschedule the series," Mack said. Mack was noted for advertising the iron-additive product on his talent show. Mack has been in show business for more than 50 years as a musician and a producer. He began his entertainment career playing jazz clarinet in his hometown of Denver, Colo. Mack, whose real name is Ted Mac Eunnes, attended Denver University where he was a pre- law student. The performance Monday night will begin at 7:30. It will be sponsored by the Henderson State Collge Student Activity Board. McLarty draws support LITTLE ROCK (APz - Mack McLarty of Little Rock has the support of Gov. Dale Bumpers and congressional candidate Bill Clinton of Fayetteville as a potential candidate for the post of state Democratic party chairman. David H. Pryor, the Democratic nominee for governor, has indicated lhal McLarty is his choice for_the post. The new chairman is to be selected by the new Democratic State Committee this week during the Democratic State Convention at Hot Springs. Traditionally, the party has followed the gubernatorial nominee's recommendation. Some have questioned McLarty's association with the campaign to gain passage of an amendment to remove the constitutional limit of 10 per cent on interest rates. Bumpers and Clinton both said Saturday that McLarty's partnership in an advertising agency that is handling the campaign for the proposed amendment should not bar McLarty's selection as state party chairman. Bumpers called McLarty a good man and said he found McLarty acceptable. Clinton said he and McLarty are friends and that McLarty is able and hardworking and would be an asset to the party. Nixon admits making errors, mis judgments PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) — Former President Richard M. Nixon, newly immune from Watergate prosecution, admits he made "mistakes and misjudgments" in handling the scandal. "That the way I tried to deal with Watergate was the wrong way is a burden 1 shall bear for every day of the life that is left to me," Nixon said Sunday of the scandal that shadowed his administration for two years and led to his resignation. The former chief executive made his remarks in a statement released less than 10 minutes after President Ford announced he had granted Nixon full pardon for any offense he may have committed in the White House. "In accepting this pardon, 1 hope that his compassionate act will contribute to lifting the burden of Watergate from our country," Nixon said. "I/joking back on what is still in my mind a complex and confusing maze uf events, decisions, pressures and personalities, one thing I can see more clearly now is that I was wrong in not acting more decisively and more forthrightly in dealing with Watergate, particularly when it grew from a political scandal into a national tragedy. "I know that many fair-minded people believe that my motivations and actions in the Watergate affair were intentionally self-serving and illegal. I now understand how my own mistakes and misjudgments have contributed to that belief and seemed to support it. That burden is the heaviest one of all to bear," he said. Nixon said "here in California, my perspective on Watergate is quite different than it was while I was embattled in the midst of the controversy, and while I was still subject to the unrelenting daily demands of the presidency itself. "No yords can describe the depths of my regret and pain at the anguish my mistakes over Watergate have caused the nation and the presidency — a nation I so deeply love and an institution I so greatly respect." Later Sunday, Nixon and his wife drove to the Palm Springs estate of Walter H. Annenberg, U.S. ambassador to Great Britain. Daughter Julie Nixon Eisenhower said in Washington that her parents had gone to Palm Springs for a rest and planned to spend the night there. IIOPK (ARK.) STAh Monday. September fl, 1974 Weekend traffic toll: nine Martha bitter over Nixon pardon By The Associated Press A mother and her 18-day-old daughter were among nine persons who died in five Arkansas traffic accidents during the weekend. State Police identified the mother as Sandra June Akins, 25, of Van Buren, and her baby, Tami Michelle. Sheriff Bill Vickery and Deputy Sheriff Kenny Trent of Crawford County said six other persons were injured in the two-car crash on Arkansas 162 about 3 " 2 miles east of Van Buren Sunday night. The sheriff's office spokesmen said the fatal accident occurred when a car left the road on the west side, came back onto the road, then crossed the center line, striking the car in which the Akins mother and child were riding. State Police identified the other victims of weekend traffic accidents in Arkansas as: -Leo Perkins, 34, of Memphis, Tennm, killed Sunday night when he lost control of the vehicle he was driving, causing it to hit the median wall on the Memphis-Arkansas Bridge on interstate 55 several times. Perkins was thrown from the vehicle. -Ronald W. Hart, 21, of Bosier City, I>a.; and Larry McKnight, 27, of near Wynne, killed Friday night in a three- vehicle mishap four miles west of Lehi on Interstate 40. —Janie Akin, 59, and Robert Akin, 61, both of near Beebe, killed Saturday night in a two- car crash 14 miles north of Lonoke at the junction of Ar- kansas 31 and 38. —Sarah Yvonne Asberry, 21, and Misty Asberry, 3, both of Cave City, killed Sunday in a two-car crash two miles east of Desha on Arkansas 25. Child, 10, killed DALLAS (AP) — Rhonda Rose, 10, of Johnson, Ark., was killed early Sunday when a Iruck hit a guard rail and overturned on a freeway in Southeast Dallas, police reported. Officers said she was asleep in the cab and the accident occurred after the driver dozed at the wheel. They said the driver, not named, was the father of one of her friends and he was taking her to visit relatives in Houston. The driver was arrested on a homicide with a vehicle charge. HOT SPRINGS, Ark, (AP)Martha Mitchell declaring her bitterness about President Ford's pardon of former President Richard Nixon, said Sunday she believed the whole thing had been prearranged before Nixon left office. "I knew Nixon had something up his sleeve when he left the White House," Mrs. Mitchell, the estranged wife of former Atty. Gen. John Mitchell, said. Mrs. Mitchell said she was sure a deal had been arranged before Nixon resigned. Otherwise, she said, "Mr. Ford wouldn't be in the White House, and I don't care if Jerry ever speaks to me again." Mrs. Mitchell was interviewed separately by television station KATV and radio station KARN, both of Little Rock, while visiting her cousin, Ray West of Pine Bluff, at his Lake Hamilton condominium near here. Saying she was vehement about the pardon, Mrs. Mitchell declared, "Nixon's just as guilty and responsible as anybody else, and it's a horrible, horrible thing. I don't feel sorry for him of his family either because they're too stupid to know what they're doing." Referring to others involved in the Watergate burglary and cover-up, she said, "I think we should have amnesty completely across-the-board. I don't believe in pardoning one person and not pardoning everybody else — especially when they're the ones that did the dirty work for him (Nixon). And that goes for even old (H. R. "Bob") Haldeman and old (John) Ehrlichman whom I hate. "If he (Ford) can pardon one, he can pardon them all and get the ones out of jail that are sitting there now." "Do we have Watergate behind us?" KATV reporter Brian Dampier asked Mrs. Mitchell. "We'll never have Watergate behind us, I hope, because, in a way, it's been good," she replied. "We're teaching our politicians to be straight and not crooked." Mitchell is one of the defendants in an upcoming trial in connection with the Watergate cover-up.
