Page 16 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Tuesday, March 15, 1988 Jackson, Simon Both Predicting Victory CHICAGO (AP) - Democrat Jesse Jackson is predicting a victory in today's Illinois presidential primary, saying his win would be a "significant breakthrough," while Vice President George Bush is wondering aloud what is keeping his Republican rival Bob Dole in the race. "Fin not sure I understand what he's doing," said Bush during a final campaign swing in the state where polls were forecasting a landslide victory over his GOP rivals. But both Dole and Pat Robertson were insisting they were staying in the race, though the former television evangelist said he would reevaluate his status if he gets less than 5 percent of the vote. Illinois voters express their presidential preference in a non-binding beauty contest and also elect convention delegates. It was possible a candidate would do well in the popular vote, but lose out in the contest for delegates to a contender who had stronger slates filed in the state's 22 congressional districts. As if to emphasize his deter- mination to fight on, Dole was flying to Wisconsin and Connecticut to campaign in two of the states that follow Illinois. Sen. Paul Simon said, "I will win" his home state's Democratic primary, and conceded second place in either the popular vote or the delegate contest would not be good enough. Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis said he has made "significant gains" in his effort to finish ahead of at least one of the state's two favorite-son candidates. An ABC News-Washington Post poll done Saturday and Sunday suggested Simon had the support of 39 percent of 328 likely Democratic voters, with Jackson at 34 percent. Simon's lead was within the poll's 6- point margin of error. Dukakis trailed with 17 percent. Between 2.5 million and 3 million voters were expected to turn out for the primary on a wintry day. Kel Hudson, associate director of the state Board of Elections, said that would represent 46 percent to 48 percent of the registered voters. National Report Father Pleads Guilty In Children's Deaths LEWISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A 24-year-old man has pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the death of his two children, who died last summer hours after he locked them inside his car. John Shields of White Township entered the plea Monday, and faces a maximum 10-year prison term and $20,000 fine. Judge Francis Searer deferred sentencing pending an investigation by probation officials. Shields testified at his wife's trial two weeks ago that he agreed to watch their children, Kristle, 3, and Calvin, 1, on the morning of Aug. 22, but instead locked them in the car and closed the windows. The children were discovered in the afternoon, when the temperature reached the mid-80s, authorities said. Lisa Shields pleaded guilty to reduced charges and also is awaiting sentencing. Witness' Testimony In Mecham Trial Disputed PHOENIX, Ariz, f AP) — A Cabinet member and confidant of Evan Mecham testified that a key prosecution witness at the governor's impeachment trial lied about an alleged death threat. Max Hawkins, who was fired as state Department of Administration director by acting Gov. Rose Mofford, told the Senate that state official Peggy Griffith's public statements and testimony about the alleged threat were "substantially different" from what she told him in November. "I think she did lie on that," Hawkins testified Monday. Today, the Senate was expected to consider a defense motion to declare a mistrial or dismiss the first of three main charges against Mecham. Defense lawyers accused Department of Public Safety Director Ralph Milstead of denying Mecham a fair trial by attempting to intimidate defense witnesses. Mecham, a first-term Republican, is accused of trying to thwart an investigation of an alleged death threat by then-state prison construction chief Lee Watkins against a former state official, Donna Carlson. Jury Convicts Fromme Of Escape BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) - Would-be assassin Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme was convicted of escape after she told jurors she fled from prison because she thought her lover and mentor, mass murderer Charles Manson, had cancer. A federal jury on Monday convicted Fromme of the two-day escape from the Federal Correctional Institution at Alderson, where she is serving a life sentence for her 1975 attempt on then-President Gerald Ford's life. "You don't have any choice," she told the jurors while acting as her own attorney. "I'm guilty as charged, legally, and without remorse morally, so that's that." The jury returned its verdict within 10 minutes. U.S. District Judge Elizabeth Hallanan set sentencing for April 28. Koch Greets Austrian Ambassador With Blast NEW YORK (AP) - The new Austrian ambassador to the United Nations came bearing gifts to Mayor Edward I. Koch, but the mayor greeted him with a diatribe against Austria's president, KurtWaldheim. "I think he's a bad guy. He was just one of those obsequious guys when he was here, before I knew he was a war criminal. And I had dinner with him a couple of times,'' Koch on Monday told Peter Hohenfellner, who became the permanent Austrian representative at the United Nations in February. Waldheim, who was secretary-general of the United Nations, has come under fire since files were uncovered that suggest he had a greater role than he has admitted as an officer in the Nazi army during World War II. There are reports that Waldheim knew about atrocities being committed against partisans and villagers where he was stationed. Waldheim has stood fast against the accusations and refused to resign as president. He has been banned as an undesireable from United States. Marino First Black Archbishop In U.S. VATICAN CITY (AP) — Monsignor Eugene A. Marino has been named archbishop of Atlanta, the Vatican announced today. He is the first black to be named archbishop in the United States. The 53-year-old Jesuit is currently an auxiliary bishop in Washington, D.C. Archbishop Pio Laghi, Apostolic Pro-Nuncio in the United States, announced the appointment at the Vatican. Marino succeeds Archbishop Thomas A. Donnellan, who died Oct. 15. Marino is the first black Catholic archbishop in the United States, said William Ryan, spokesman for the United States Catholic Conference in Washington. The archbishop-designate has been auxiliary bishop of Washington since 1974. In 1971, he became the first black priest to hold the major office of vicar general of a religious community — the Josephite Fathers, who are headquartered in Washington. Dole Desperately Holding On WASHINGTON (AP) - Only a month ago, Bob Dole looked ready to wrest the Republican presidential nomination from George Bush. Now, he is desperately looking for ways to keep his White House hopes from being wiped out by Bush in today's Illinois primary. In mid-February, everything was looking up for Dole. He had scored an upset win in the Iowa caucuses, and as the New Hampshire primary approached, polls were suggesting he could overtake the vice president in the state. But in one 48-hour stretch — the final two days before the voting in New Hampshire — the Dole campaign derailed, and has never gotten back on track. A combination of body blows — weak organization, poor planning, a mean image and just bad luck — has reduced the formidable minority leader of the Senate to a battered, struggling candidate. With the vice president leading 2-to-l in the Illinois polls, the question Dole faces over and over is when — not if — he will 'withdraw. Dole said it will not be today or Wednesday: "I've made a judgment that Illinois, whatever happens, we're going to keep going." Demo Leader Moves To Stop Brokering WASHINGTON (AP) - Democratic Chairman Paul Kirk wants to head off a bruising battle for the party's presidential nomination and would mediate efforts to close ranks behind a probable nominee if nobody finishes the primaries with enough delegates to win. "When you get to a point when there is someone who is somewhat shy of a mathematical majority, I think the opportunity exists to try to strengthen that person and not weaken him as you come into the convention," Kirk said Monday. The delegates who could tip the balance for such a candidate are the 645 so-called "super delegates," the party leaders, members of Congress and governors of states and territories who automatically will be convention delegates because of the offices they hold. Four years ago, 568 convention seats were used for this purpose, "When we increased those numbers, it was not tokenism," Kirk said. "Their status is that they have to run with and govern with the ticket in the end." Kirk, in a telephone interview from New York, said the super delegates have a "special responsibility" to help ensure that the Democratic presidential nomination does not wind up in a political fight that damages the nominee. By the time the primaries and caucuses end in June, Kirk said he believed that one candidate will be considered a clear front-runner and the eventual nominee. That candidate will have developed a consistent record of winning primaries and caucuses, even if he does not have the delegates needed for a first-ballot victory at the national convention, Kirk said. At that point, Kirk said he would meet with the candidates and "say, 'OK, here's where we are and here's where we have to be in November. Now, what do we have to do to maximize those opportunities?'" "I don't want to leave the impression that Kirk's going to be the broker," the party chairman said in a telephone interview from New York. "I'm not going to dictate to anyone because it doesn't work that way." However, he said he would be "in the middle" of efforts to avoid harm that could be done to a probable nominee if a political battle erupted just before or during the convention. The Democrats conclude their delegate selection on June 7 with primaries in California and New Jersey, which combined account for more than 400 national convention delegates. "The whole thing is to avoid that brokering process taking place in Atlanta," said Julie Anbender, a spokeswoman for Kirk. "I think that he's been floating this idea with elected officials and party officials for sometime." The Democratic National Convention is July 18-21 in Atlanta. Associated Press Sen. Bob Dole makes point in Chicago From the start, Dole was judged a tough contender for the 1988 nomination. A seasoned politician with national stature, the Kansas senator was one Republican who could match Bush in fund-raising, name rec- ognition and experience. But there were doubts about Dole as well, doubts that all came to the surface the weekend before the New Hampshire primary Feb. 16 — "the 48 hours that cost them the campaign" is how one Republican professional described those days. "He was ready to put Bush away," said GOP pollster Lance Tarrance, who worked for former candidate Jack Kemp. Dole was riding the wave out of his big early win — a triumph in the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 8. Bush was a disappointing third behind former television evangelist Pat Robertson. That should have meant a big boost for Dole for the New Hampshire primary the next week. "You need some luck...and Dole didn't get much good luck out of Iowa," Tarrance said. "The news of Robertson beating out Bush...was the big story." Dole did start picking up strength in New Hampshire. Bush was down, and changing his style as his campaign struggled to recover. But by Thursday of that week, Bush was on the counterattack, readying ads accusing Dole of "straddling" major issues. And the Dole campaign could not get its act together to respond. One television commercial" attacking Bush — called "Footsteps" inside the campaign — was ready Thursday. But top; aides viewed it and judged it "unusable" because of poor production and problems with the script. IT'S A CLASSIFIED SECRET! We'll never reveal the identity of a Pharos-Tribune box holder.
