COURIER-POST, CHERRY MIA, N.J. Friday, May 13, 1977 21 Election results change ffesMngton In EMsJ From Associated Press and Gannett News Service Getting pressure from the President Speaker Thomas P. O'Neill said Thursday he's getting some pressure from President Carter to set up a House intelligence committee to limit the number of congressmen told about the most secret United States intelligence operations. He said he is exploring the possibility, which he said was pressed again by the President and Vice President Walter F. Mondale during a meeting Thursday. The counting of absentee ballots from Tuesday's Cherry Hill munici pal election has changed the finishing order of two candidates. Though Independent David S. Myers finished second on election night, he moved to third place after absentee votes were tabulated. Similarly, Democrat Bernard Piatt, who finished third on election night, finished second, Thursday after County Clerk Michael Keating 'It makes good news' Robert Lipshutz, a special counsel to President Carter, said Thursday his relationship with Wesley Merritt, a convicted tax evader, was "an attorney-client relationship." He made his comments to a reporter after two Atlanta television stations said the Internal Revenue Service was investigating the transfer of property of by Essex a corporation which listed Lipshutz as its registered agent. "He's a very spectacular person to write about. I'm in a position that is fairly prominent and it certified the absentee results. Sixteen candidates ran for four seats in the election. Because no two candidates won more than SO per cent of the ballots cast, there will be a runoff on June 14. The candidates who will be on the ballot, and their final vote totals in the Tuesday election follows: Maria Greenwald, 4,690, Bernard Piatt, 4,606, both Democrats running under the slogan "A New Spirit for Cherry Hill," the Democratic-en dorsed slate. David Myers, with 4,523, running under the slogan "Your Tax Fighter," finished third. Finishing fourth and fifth were Joseph Hassman with 4,459 and makes good news," said Lipshutz. LIPSHUTZ Battle is over, not the war Outnumbered Republicans on the Senate Rules Committee gave up their fight Thursday against the Carter administratison's election day registration bill but vowed to renew the battle on the Senate floor. Government spending has tripled Federal, state and local governments will spend almost per household this year, more than three times what they spent in I960, a new report says. The Tax Foundation Inc. said total estimated government spending at all levels for fiscal 1977 is 1715.7 billion. Curbing the flow of aliens President Carter is swearing into office today a Mexican-American whose job will be to curb the flow of illegal aliens from his ancestral homeland. Leonel Castillo, a 38-year-old former Houston city official, takes over today as commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service. Howard S. Gall, with 4,220. Both are members of the "spirit" ticket. The sixth, seventh and eighth place finishers were: James Wilson, an incumbent, with Ruth Baur, 3.711 and Stanley Zaleski, 3,251. All are members of the "Growth, Organ ization, Progress" slate endorsed by the Republican party. Residents may register to vote for the June 14 runoff until May 16 at 4 p.m., Keating said. The hair-pulling starts over women's amendment months as Abzug leads her govern ment-funded commission down a road upon which Schlafly is avidly scattering tacks. Even at this early date, the com mission is finding itself forced to focus on the Schlafly attacks. At Thursday's meeting. IWY com- missioners discussed training parliamentarians to outmaneuver the Stop-ERA people, and worried aloud about Schlafly's followers filling up the Houston exhibit halls with anti-IWY ave material. And time was also devoted to the discussing the lawsuit Schlafly and her followers have begun in Illinois Federal Court to enjoin the IWY review commission for each state," the Schlafly publication said. "Find out when and where your state IWY conference will be held Plan to attend and get all your friends to attend. It is urgent that we send more women than the women's libbers do, so we can outvote them." Abzug said "We have to remember this is emanating from a very narrow group, the same people we've had to deal with in the ERA struggle. This group seeks effect to violate the law" under which the commission was created and charged to hold a national conference. Schlafly objects to the IWY Commission-created by Congress in 1972 spending $5 million of taxpayer money. Her followers argue that the IWY's recommendations for improving the status of women such as ERA ratification and better government-funded day care are "radical" and "anti-family" and should not be forced upon women. Schlafly is considered likely to attend her homes tate's conference June 10 and 11 at the University of Illinois. Abzug is scheduled to be the keynote speaker there. If Schlafly gets herself elected delegate, the two could also meet face to face at the national conference in Houston. But what will happen when the outspoken former congresswoman meets the conservative author in the same room is probably less dramatic than what will happen in the coming By CAROL R. RICHARDS Gannett News Service WASHINGTON The scene is being set for a national battle between two opposing titans of the women's movement, conservative Phyllis Schlafly and liberal Bella Abzug. The inevitability of such a clash became evident Thursday as the International Women's Year headed by former Democratic Rep. Abzug, met to make plans for its national women's conference to be held Nov. 18 in Houston and to review the progress of the statewide conferences leading up to the national event. An organizer of the Georgia women's conference held in Atlanta last weekend told the IWY commission that a group calling itself the "Citizens Review Committee for IWY" had attended, disrupted the meetings and monopolized the TV cameras with their complaints that the conference was stacked on behalf of the Equal Rights Amendment. Connie Plunkett of Carrollton, Ga. warned that the IWY review committee is "a national group, and they'll show up at other meetings." Abzug said the review committee was the work of Phyllis Schlafly, who is leading the Stop-ERA movement. She waved the March 31 issue of Schlafly's publication "Eagle Forum" to provie her point. "We will appoint an IWY citizens 21 to 53 Men's Summer commission from continuing its work. A similar earlier suit was dismissed. "I don't think we should waste a lot Sale of time being defensive about the anti-ERA people," said IWY Com mission member Harry Edwards, a Save 21 to 33 on Men's Suits Harvard Law professor. "This commission shouldn't spend more than half a second worrying about it." Abzug agreed, suggesting hopefully that some of Schlafly's followers might be converted by attending the IWY conferences. orig. $85 to $100.
