Church Projects Moral Tone But Brown Could Thwart Late Strategy LOS ANGELES — (LENS) — In a political field thickly sown with contenders, Frank Church, the Idaho senator, is the latest to spring fully-armed into the battle for the Democratic nomination. Several others — such as Sargent Shriver, who was the latest to drop out — have already admitted defeat. Church, who made his candidacy official in a speech delivered in an Idaho goldrush ghost town, has what he calls candidly a "late, late strategy" for winning the nomination in July. If, as it may happen, no other candidate emerges as a clear winner, and if he does win the late primary elections that he has entered, he will then go to the convention with "momentum," and be an acceptable alternative candidate on a late ballot. California, with its 280 delegates to be won on a proportional basis, is particularly important in his strategy. But before then Church has to have done well in other states, such as Rhode Island and Nebraska, and in his native Idaho, the only one where he is a certain winner. The entry of California's young and, in many respects, popular Gov. Edmund Brown, Jr., has, Church conceded, made matters there "more complicated," and he has changed his mind about actually having to come in first in the field. Now, he just says he must "do well," a term many politicians, particularly in speaking of primary races, find convenient for its lack of precision. Church has found a new approach: the California primary on June 8, he said during his three days of campaign there last week, should be viewed as a "bifurcated" contest, with the Brown vote — which is expected to be substantial, if nowhere near the 84 per cent approval rating the 37-year-old governor was given in a recent poll.— seen as a vote of confidence in the governor and quite separate from the votes cast for "national contenders" such as Time* Herald, Carroll, la. Wednesday, April 7, 1976 m I Abolitionist Trained in Iowa for Famed Harper's Ferry Raid By Vincent Butler (Drake University Journalism Student) DES MOINES — "Old" John Brown, an abolitionist, spent three years in and out of Iowa recruiting and training men for his most famous act — the seizure of an arsenal at Harper's Ferry,,W. Va. To many,,Brown was insane, a fiend without compassion; to friends he was pious, perhaps strange, but dedicated to abolishing slavery in America. Some of Brown's friends in Iowa included Josiah Grinnell, founder of Grinnell, and John Teasdale, editor of the Des Moines Register. Both men tried to convince Brown not to attack the arsenal, but Brown refesed saying, "No, the battle is raging and I must fight. My mission is direct from God almighty." Brown first entered Iowa in 1856, coming from Kansas, and taking refuge in Tabor, a Quaker community in southwestern Iowa. The Quakers abhorred slavery but were also against the kind of violence that Brown used. Despite differences in philosothies, the Quakers and Brown had little trouble getting along. Brown decided to use Tabor as a place to store ammunition and other supplies. "'He took many trips to Missouri, helping slaves escape to Iowa. The people in Tabor were enraged at Brown's "slave stealing" and set up a meeting to discuss the situation. Attending the meeting was a Dr. Brown, a slaveowner from Missouri, John Brown declared that he would not stay in the same room with Dr. Brown. Dr. Brown refused to leave, and the majority at the meeting sided with him. John Brown stormed out of town never to return. John Brown moved his headquarters to Springdale, a Quaker community east of Iowa City, in November 1857. Brown and his men stayed at the home of Williom Maxson, one of the few non-Quakers in Springdale. While in Springdale, Brown met the Coppoc brothers, Edwin and Barclay, whd'later participated in the incident at Harper's Ferry. The Coppoc brothers were Quakers, in their early 20s and great admirers of Brown. Edwin was born in Salem, Ohio, June 30, 1835, while Barclay was born Jan. 4,1839. According to an article in a Palimpsest magazine, Edwin was a hard-working, honest and straightforward person while Barclay was not quite as steady because of sickness. Despite lacking the maturity that others in Brown's army had, the Coppocs more than made up for it with their "native intelligence, sturdy KEEP COOL...with AIR CONDITIONING 1 At GLIDDiN HARDWARE And 44% on operating costs with Dual Rotary Compressor E-Flex Central Air Conditioning Fodders high efficiency E-Flex is two systems in one.

GLIDDEN HARDWARE character and a staunch belief in his (Brown's) cause which steeled them to face death itself without misgivings," the magazine reported. Brown and his men spent about three hours daily in Springdale, drilling with wooden swo.rds and exercising. The residents were not happy with Brown's combat training but accepted it in the name of abolishing slavery. When learning that Brown was going to attack the arsenal in Harper's Ferry, the people of Springdale tried to convince him not to do so. When Brown refused their advice, a letter was sent by. the townspeople to the Secretary of War. The letter was ignored and'Brown continued to train his men. When Brown left Iowa for the last time, two lowans, Steward Taylor and Jeremiah Anderson, were in Brown's 22-rrian army. The Coppoc brothers stayed in Iowa but were told they would be contacted later. Brown wrote a letter to the brothers on July 15, 1859, from Chambersburg, Pa., telling them to come. Brown and his men attacked himself. The other -"national contender" with whose fortunes Church is most involved is Rep. Morris Udall of Arizona, just now the leading liberal in the field. Had Udall won in Massachusetts, which many expected he would, Church might not have entered the battle. Should Udall do spectacularly well in Wisconsin and New York, Church's campaign plans may be ruined. Indeed, one question he was inevitably asked during his three-day California swing the arsenal on Oct. 16, 1859. The raid caught the guards by surprise. The Virginia militia quickly surrounded the arsenal but an ensuing battle lasted for three days. Brown's men fought' gallantly but were outnumbered by the Virginia militia and the U.S. marines which were commanded by Robert E. Lee. Six of Brown's, men were captured alive by the government troops. Edwin Coppoc-was one of those caught but Barclay escaped during the Shootout. Taylor and Anderson were killed during the battle. Brown, Edwin Coppoc and two others were hanged in December, 1859. Barclay Coppoc returned to Springdale after the battle. The Virginia Legislature found out'about Coppoc's whereabouts and wanted to extradite him to Virginia. Gov. Samuel Kirkwood of Iowa found enough flaws in Virginia's extradition paper to delay the procedures. While the Virginia Legislature was making the necessary corrections. Coppoc left Iowa. When the Civil War began, Coppoc was commissioned a •lieutenant in a Kansas fighting outfit. was why he thought voters should support him instead of, say, Udall. His reply was that none of the other candidates was addressing the "real issues" in this campaign, which he defines broadly as the endemic arrogance and corruption of both the federal government and big business. These two areas, by no sort of coincidence, are those to which Church has staked a particular claim by virtue of the Senate committee investigations into .intelligence operations and multinational corporations that he led. If Church has an identifying quality in his campaign approach, it may be described as high moral tone. He proposes to restore the government to "legitimacy in the eyes of the people" and offers the image of the decent, honest man appalled by the sins of the mighty. But this can be a problem, as well. His urge to root out evil can lead him to ignore the political necessity of proposing specific remedies for national ailments. When he was asked about unemployment — which in California, for example, is now 10 per cent of the labor force — Church tended to dismiss as mere short-term panaceas such popular notions as government job programs and concentrated instead on what he sees as basic causes of the problem. Thus he proposes to change the tax laws which make it. he says, infinitely more profitable for American companies to invest abroad, at a cost of 150,000 jobs a year. The question is whether or not such an approach will reach the men and women lining up at unemployment offices. In foreign affairs, where he first gained prominence for his early opposition to United States involvement in Vietnam, Church favors what he calls a "discriminating" foreign policy. This would include a cutback in foreign aid, relatively greater reliance on multilateral aid through the World Bank and other international organizations, and a general drawing-in of American horns in areas of the world where the United States has no vital national interest. Not even Church himself denies that he is taking a gamble. But he is a shrewd enough politician to have been reelected to the Senate three times — the only Democratic senator in Idaho's history to have served more than one term — and certainly shrewd enough to know that he has nothing to lose. If he fails, there is still 1980, or the possibility of a second place on this year's Democratic ticket.
