Monday, October 28, 1974 Union out 1.4 million on politics WASHINGTON (AP) - the political trust run by the AFL* CIO has spent $1.4 million on politics this year, its latest campaign finance reports show. The national trust run by the American Medical Association has spent $792,697 in the same period, and its 38 state committees have spent additional sums. The AMA's spending is followed by that of the United Auto Workers union, which has spent $763,395 this year. These were the largest totals spotted in a review of the latest campaign finance reports, which arrived in Washington last week. The reports cover the period between Sept. 1 and Oct. 14, and give totals for the year so far. Another wave of reports is due late this week, covering all but the final week and a half before the Nov. 5 I election. • A number of other groups have spent more than half a million dollars so far this year. They include the International Ladies Garment Workers Union; $516,975; The Machinists union, $500,690; The Maritime Engineers union, $552,059; and the California Teachers Association, $576,966. Those spending more than a quarter-million dollars include the Steelworkers union, $297,317; the Railway Clerks union, $251,909; the trust run by real estate dealers, $272,092; and the trust established by the National Association of Manufacturers, $257,996. A-trust run by California dentists has spent $311,845, more than half of it given to state-level candidates. The listing is not comprehensive because some reports are tardy, and because some groups such as the Teamsters and the AMA give money through a welter of state and local committees that makes the bookkeeping complicated. But the list gives some idea of which groups are spending large sums to influence this year's congressional and state elections. The largest single gift spotted in the current flock of reports was $40,000 from the garment workers to Hugh L. Carey, the Democratic candidate for governor of New York. Sen. Birch Bayh, D-Ind., got $15,000 from the Auto Workers and another $15,000 from the Retail Clerks union. The AFL-CIO passed out gifts of $10,000 each to Sen. Warren G. Magnuson, D-Wash., Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., and Gary Hart, the former McGovern campaign manager who is running for the Senate in Colorado. Magnuson now has received a total of $20,000 from the AFlrCIO. The Auto Workers also gave gifts totaling $13,000 to former astronaut John Glenn, Democratic Senate candidate from Ohio. HOPE (ARK.) STAR Eleven Wind, hail hit W.

Candidate assistance program is approved LITTLE ROCK (AP) - A special assistance program to help Democratic candidates in "hotly contested races" has been approved by the state Democratic Committee. Mac McLarty, the newly elected party chairman, ex.- plained • the program to the committee Saturday. He said the program consists of radio advertisements asking voters to vote Democratic, cost about $2,500 and involved 13 counties. McLarty did not say which counties were involved, but did say they were in the 2nd and 3rd congressional districts. The only "hotly contested race" mentioned was the one_ between Democrat Bill' Clinton"" and Rep. John Paul Hammerschmidt, a Republican, in the 3rd District, but McLarty said some of the funds were being used in the 2nd District where Democratic congressman Wilbur Mills is opposed by Republican Judy Petty. Brad Jesson of Fort Smith, a former chairman of the party, told the committee about the controversial charter being developed for the National Democratic Committee's consideration at its December meeting in Kansas City. Jesson said the proposed charter had created much conflict within the party, but that the situation should be quieter at the December meeting. Jesson told the committee that a number of serious issues would have to be resolved at the upcoming convention. He said the issues are: —Whether the party should continue the off-election year conventions between presidential elections or make them subject to the call of the National Democratic Committee. —Whether the party should establish a Judicial Council to hear challenges to states' selection of delegates to the national convention. .-^whether the state parties should be required to present "affirmative action plans" which show they have made an effort to include various minorities in the delegations. —Whether the party should do away with mandatory quotas in its delegation selection that require each presidetial candidate receiving votes to be represented in the delegation by the percentage of vote he received in the primary or state convention. In another action, the State Democratic Committee expanded and elected a new 1&member executive committee. FEATURING TOWN HOUSE & DEL MONTE CANNED FAVORITES ... COME SEE & SAVE!

(AP) Independent oil operators have left room for a reconciliation but have charged that major oil companies have "divided the industry" on tax matters now before Congress. A resolution tentatively approved Sunday by the imports policy committee of the 4,000- member Independent Petroleum Association of America said the international companies have misled the public and the government into thinking the domestic industry does not need its 22'per cent depletion tax allowance. It also said some major companies have told congressmen they would trade domestic depletion for elimination of oil price controls. John Miller, association president from Allegan, Mich., said major companies have been conspicuous by their absence as independents have battled throughout the year to convince Congress the depletion allowance is vital to the nation's energy self-sufficiency objectives. "It is not necessary that the cleavage exist," Miller said. "All that is necessary is that the majors get back to work. We are working." The proposed resolution must clear two more committees before being submitted Tuesday at the concluding session of the association's annual meeting. Regardless of its final form, the resolution broke into the open tor the first tune the reported concern of the independents over maintaining a united front against tax proposals they contend would cost the industry $2 billion and force many independents out of business. Miller said he told representatives of the major companies of the impatience during a Washington meeting last week. "I told them we have not seen any visible evidence on the part of the majors for retention of domestic depletion," he said. On Thursday, the management committee of the American Petroleum Institute, the industry's largest trade group, reaffirmed its support of domestic depletion. The Sunday resolution would also authorize Miller to explore the "feasibility and acceptability" of a proposal that domestic tax depletion be denied any producer who utilizes current foreign tax credits. Without taking a vote, uie tax committee sent such a proposal Sunday to the executive committee for further study. Miller said that, under the proposal, domestic producers declining to utilize foreign tax credits also would be exempt from "punitive" tax measures now before Congress.
