Nixon, and i amnesty and surtax stands. An Associated Press survey [showed much concern wide- I spread among Republican of- I fice-seekers across the nation, and indicated that Democrats I are making the most of it. One Republican, Rep. LaMar I Baker of Tennessee, who seeks a third term in the Nov. 5 election, said "I resent having to carry the burden of past ac! lions of officials in our party." Baker's remarks came after Ford had announced an anti-inflation program including a surtax on middle and upper income citizens. The AP survey showed the Democrats stand to come close lo the record 39 governorships they held after the 1936 election, as well as winning substantial gains in the Senate and House. To counter this trend, Republicans have begun moving to cut their losses by pumping new money into the breach, planning a heavy media drive and arranging personal visits by Ford, who still rates personally as an asset despite reaction to some of his policies. The Republican National Committee has spread a large share of its Washington staff around the country to help candidates and has pumped as much as $250,000 into the campaign pipeline in recent days. Democrats, who remain hopeful ,of•, majssiye,gains, concede the mo'ney^Dui'fffiurt them'; eis- pecially in the close races where their own candidates are short of funds. The AP survey, based on reports from bureaus in the 50 states, late polls and interviews with key politicians, shows the r mocrats have a good chance of gaining from 30 lo 40 new seals in Ihe House. They already have a 248-187 majorily. In the Senate, Democrats are likely to pick up two to six new seals on top of the 58-42 advantage they already hold. Bui Ihe most dramatic gains may come in governorships, where Ihe Democrats already hold 32 to Ihe GOP's 18. Democrats are expected to gain no less than Ihree and as many as eighl, including the big ones — New York and California. Of the dozen Senate seats considered in serious jeopardy, ten are now filled by Republicans. The GOP is defending ten of Ihe 13 or so governorships being hotly contested. New York and California are the keystones to the potential Democratic landslide. Edmund G. "Jerry" Brown Jr., son of California's last Democratic governor, holds a substantial 'lead in the polls over Republican nominee Houston I. Flournoy in the race to succeed GOP Gov. Ronald Reagan. In New York, Rep. Hugh L. Carey is far ahead of Lt. Gov. Malcolm L. Wilson in the governor's race.) Democrats stand to gain two or more House seats in each of those states. They also should hold Alan Cranston's Senate seat in California, and Democrat Ramsey Clark is now given a chance at upsetting veteran, Republican Sen.

'Close-Up' to focus on school football hazards NEW YORK (AP) - ABC- TV, exhibiting either a fine ironic sense or the true meaning of public service, precedes its NFL football show tonight with a good, solid documentary on the hazards of high school football. One of ABC's "Close-Up" pieces, it's a must-see for the parents of any kid who wants to play or does play high school football. It studies questions shoved under the Astroturf far too long, particularly the issue of "head tackling" — driving into Ihe ball carrier with one's head — that many doctors contend can seriously cripple. It also takes a long look at helmet design, noting that the helmetn primarily designed to protect one's noodle, now has become what reporter Jules Bergman calls "an coffensive weapon used to punish the opponent." Equally important, it dwells — if only briefly — on the issue of the qualifications required of high school football coaches, claiming that 41 states have no kind of minimum athletic standards a coach must meet before he can sally forth in hope of a winning season. The show has a few flaws, including one curious segment in which Joe Namath, the New York Jets' quarterback, holds forth at his summer football clinic for boys aged eight to 18. He advises them to never, ever drive into the ball carrier with their heads in making a tackle: "We don't want you hurting one another." Yet as sure as God made liltle green apples, you know that on any Sunday those kids can see any pro team's defensive line, including the Jets, doing exactly what he's warning the youngsters not to do.

ON THEIR 75th A JVJVI VERSAR Y "We have all enjoyed the paper for years and still look forward to it" Dairy co-ops charging above minimum price . W ' <: ' _ ^•- I"*' . '. **«*' . " ' ... WASHINGTON (AP) — prices in most parts of the country are being held above federal minimums through the bargaining power of big dairy cooperatives, according to governmental and private statistics. ' The government calculated that extra charges levied by coops amounted to an average of 1.9 cents per half^gallon nationwide last June, the most recent month for which an official av* crage is available. The average has risen since then, bul Ihe Agriculture De- parlmenl has not yet revealed the amount of the increase. Botllers say dairy co-ops in southern Florida are charging 11 cenis per half-gallon over federal minimums, which one governmenl economist said was the highest extra charge ever recorded. Co-ops are able lo charge prices above federal minimums because of their size and partial immunity from antitrust laws. The higher prices gener* ally are passed on Id con' sumers. Under present law, bottlers must pay at least what the gov* ernment sets as the minimum price for fluid milk in 61 federally regulated markets, which account for about 80 per cent of the nation's fluid milk. But coops are free to demand more, and also are free to join in price*Hxing associations among themselves. The co-ops were given exemptions from antitrust laws during the Depression, when dairymen were at the mercy of boulers and cheese makers. But the processors now contertd that the tables have lurried, and it is they who are at the merry of ihe co-ops. Under ihe law, the Secretary of Agriculture is required td prevent, co-ops from using their special status to enhance their prices unduly. Bul department officials say no action is under way 10 roll back the present record-high extra charges. In the 52 years thai the present law has been on the books, not one single price action has been brought by the department against a co-op. The exlra charges levied by ihe dairy co-ops have increased sharply in recenl months as the dairymen moved to protect themselves againsl a sharp seasonal drop in federal minimum prices for milk. the dairymen also have complained of a severe profit squeeze as higher costs pushed againsl the falling prices. At one point recently the govern* ment calculated thai 100 pounds of milk would buy only 116 pounds of high-protein feed, the worst such ratio since 1041 In the best of times 100 pounds of .milk buys 170 to 180 pounds of feed. Agriculture Department officials say that in many cases the extra charges levied by the co-ops include legitimate serv* ice charges for such things as delivery, testing and payroll bookkeeping. Presently some extra charges are in effect for more than 60 of the 61 federally regulated markets, according to Industry sources. Survey shows Clinton trailing FAYETTEVILLE, Ark, (AP) — A survey Conducted by the Bill Clinton for Congress Headquarters shows that the 28- year-old Democrat is trailing his Republican opponent, Rep. John Paul Hammerschmldt, by 5.2 per cent. Those surveyed all live in the 3rd Congressional District and either voted In the 1972 general election or in one of the party primariesi this year. "Regret," in 1915, is the only filly lo ever win the Kentucky Derby. Nine Mail diet in logging accident DiEwrrT, Ark. (AP) 1 thorities said Sammy Ofay, 44, died Sunday in a logging aeei* dent at Ethel, a community about 20 miles east of here. Deputy Sheriff Don Ellenberg of Arkansas County said Gray, a former DeWitt policeman, was getting on a log loader at the White River Refuge when Gray told a man in a log truck to back the truck up closer to the loader. "Sammy either slipped and fell and the log truck backed over him or he had a heart at* tack" and fell, Ellenberg said. Gray's body was sent to the University of Arkansas Medical Center in Little Rock for an autopsy.
