Monday* Septembet-16, I9t4 StAR Page Seven News LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Fred Thompson of Nashville* Tenn.* minority counsel for the Senate Watergate Committee, said Sat' urday he would have preferred that Richard M. Nixon's pardon come after any charges had been filed. That, Thompson said, would have allowed more to be known about Watergate. Thompson told the Arkansas Republican Convention that he had mixed emotions about President Ford's granting the pardon to Nixon. He said he was proud that in granting the pardon Ford had the courage to do something that carried no personal political benefit. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Sen. Edward M. Kennedy says his decision whether to run for President in 1976 depends largely on personal considerations. Kennedy disclosed in weekend interviews that he has studied the political situation and concluded: "I think I've got a good chance to win the nomination and a reasonable chance to win the election." He did not talk about the personal factors that will go into his decision. But they presumably would include the concern that members of his family have expressed for his safety should he embark on a presidential campaign. The Massachusetts senator had been thinking of a target date of sometime in 1975 to announce his decision. And during a trip to aid campaigning California congressional candidates, Kennedy disclosed he will make the announcement late this year or early next.

Miller about to leave Candy bars going up as NLRB chairman WASHINGTON (AP) - Edward B. Miller is about to leave as chairman of the National Labor Relations Board, having failed to get a reorganization of the board he once called a "Rube Goldberg" agency. Miller, whose term expires Dec. 16, said in an interview that he has informed the White House that he will not accept a second term if offered, The 54-year-old former Chicago labor relations lawyer said there also are personal reasons for his desire to leave the post he has held for five years. But he said he would have considered staying had the agency been overhauled. Miller is something of an oddity in Washington where government officials rarely criticize their own agencies. "Our Rube Goldberg labor board," he once wrote, is "a funny-looking and seemingly hopelessly inoperable machine for deciding labor disputes." That was nearly two years ago. He said that since then, nothing has changed despite Miller's appeals to the American Bar Association, unions and Congress to overhaul the agency's structure. Miller's chief concern is that the board's caseload is too large to be handled effectively under the structure which has changed little since its creation in 1935 to administer the National Labor Relations Act.

It says that comedian Peter Sellers sometimes is invited to play a straight-faced role in the loud mock arguments between the princess and Lord Snowdon, both now 44. But it all ends in "impish laughter," biographer Helen Cathcart reports. Miss Cathcart's book, "Princess Margaret," was published today. She is also the author of biographies of the queen and her daughter, Princess Anne. McLarty says he will disassociate himself HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) Mack Mclarty of Little Rock, who was elected chairman of the state Democratic Committee Saturday, said he would disassociate himself with his advertising agency or the agency from the campaign for proposed Amendment 57 if that became a problem in his leadership of the party. McLarty is a partner in the McLarty-Combs-Phelps agency which is handling public relations for supporters of Amendment 57 which would lift the state's 10 per cent interest limit and place control of interest limits in the hands of the General Assembly. McLarty, 28, the choice of Democratic gubernatorial nominee David Pryor, met with opposition from some Democrats because of his association with the proposed constitutional amendment. "I will have to subordinate my personal feelings over to the will of the party," he said. McLarty said his first task would be to attend the immediate needs of the party and its candidates for the November elections. Amendment 57 came up during the convention, and before concluding its session here Saturday, the delegates wrote their opposition to that amendment into the party platform. Other committee officers elected Saturday were Nancy Baker of Little Rock, vice chairman; state Sen. Robert Harvey of Swifton, second vice chairman; Buddy Benefield of England, secretary; and Mickey Cissell of Little Rock, treasurer. record 1,520 decisions in unfair labor practice and union representation cases in the year ending July 30. "I just don't think it's really possible for five board members to give careful review and attention to that large number of cases," Miller said. In its early years, the workload was light — only 33 cases in 1938. The number has grown every year along with the growth in the economy. "We have somehow managed to keep pace with it," says Miller. "This five-man board, aided by staffs which have had almost no increase in personnel since I became chairman four years ago, has coped with an approximate 25 per cent rise in cases over that period." A case takes about two years to reach an enforceable decision. WASHINGTON (AP) - Manufacturers plan to raise the price of vending machine candy bars to 20 cents because of a strain on the world supply of cocoa and cholate products. The price increase, on the heels of a jump from 10 to 15 cents with little or no change in candy bar size, reflects the development of a sweet tooth in the rest of the world as active as that in the United States. World cocoa consumption has been expanding along with increases in population and income, says Rex E. T. Dull of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Foreign Agriculture Se- rive. But unfavorable growing conditions in many, major producing countries have brought the 1973 and 1974 world crops below consumption needs, sending cocoa prices to a record high, Dull writes in the current issue of Foreign Agriculture. This 20-cent candy bar is being brought on by record high cocoa bean prices but also by higher costs of other candy bar ingredients such as sugar, nuts and milk, Dull says. He says manufacturers also are paying more for labor, packaging and transportation. "Normally, in times of high cocoa bean prices, manufacturers have varied bar weights and increased usage of cocoa butter substitutes and extenders, such as coconut and soybean oils, to keep confectionary retail prices stable," Dull says. "But today, these commodities are selling at very high levels." Cocoa bean prices peaked at $1.30 per pound on the New York spot market in early May, more than double the price of a year before. However, the price had adjusted somewhat by the end of August to $1.06. "Increasing world demand for cocoa in recent years and somewhat disappointing crops in West Africa because of unfavorable weather. off by a shattered mercury vapor light, officials said Sunday. David Kern, regional manager for Continental Oil Co., said the light was used to illuminate a 100-foot geyser of liquefied petroleum gas spewing from a large underground storage vault. The misty, clear gas, cooled lo 44 degrees below zero and under pressure to keep it in liquid form, began erupting about 10 p.m. Friday from a broken 14-inch pipeline used to transfer ^as into the cavern. There were no injuries. One thousand persons had been evacuated from homes here and 600 were moved in nearby Schercrville. "Il exploded in a big ball of fire that seemed to reach the sky," said state trooper Larry Bartley. "It belched out like Old Faithful." The explosion occurred about 6 a.m. Saturday after leaking gas had burned for more than three hours. The explosion scorched power lines and trees within 100 yards of the scene but caused no other damage. Police, firemen and persons evacuated from their homes watched the explosion from a distance. Another- Continental spokesman, Thomas Powell, said 250,000 barrels of the liquid gas were stored in honeycomb limestone about 600 feet below ground. He said it might be weeks before it could be determined how much of the LPG was lost. The gas began spewing from the pipeline when a flange on a valve broke while 65,000 barrels of LPG were being pumped into the shaft. Powell said the flow was cut off by water pumped down another shaft by Griffith and Merrillville volunteer firemen.
