Ttw DM; InV* like. KilupM. MonUm, W*dn«tdy, Jun» 2. 1»7« A-7 Brown triumphs with iincominitted help Br ASSOCIATED PIESS California Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr. has beaten everybody with nobody in Rhode Island, and that voter verdict provides an apt prelude for next Tuesday's big, final set of presidential primary elections. Now everybody will by agal", to California, Ohio and New Jersey, Those big state tests will wrap up a primary election season that baa been marked by twists; turns, and indecision, ft may well end that way, with no clear victor in either party. The uncommitted tine on the Rhode Island ballot drew more votes than any Democratic candidate. Brown bad campaigned for uncommitted votes there because be wasn't oo the ballot. Jimmy Carter won in South Dakota, ran a dose second in Rhode bland and increased bis Democratic delegate count to 903 of the 1,505 needed fur nomination. None of his rivals is even close; Rep. Morris K. Udall of Arizona is second with 306.5. President Ford won the Rhode Island primary and II Republican nominating votes, while Roaatd Reagan was beating him in South Dakota and in Montana. Sen. Frank Church of Idaho won the Democratic primary in Montana, trouncing Carter there, Given the course of the primary campaign, it seemed appropriate that in the latest set: --Ford scored his victory by getting 9,341 Rhode Island Republicans to vote for him. Only about 14 per cent of the voters turned out in the rain there. "The sun shone in the right spots on the baitot boxes,'' said Ford, --Carter took another psychological setback but said the movement to stop him short of the nomination was losing significance. --Brown claimed to have established himself as the most formidable challenger to Carter -although he has only 18 delegates in bis column and did not add to his committed count. -Udall finished second for the eighth time, in South Dakota, and said as he has almost weekly that the next contest will be a showdown between him and Carter. In fact, the Tuesday primaries did not produce a major change in either party's competition for presidential nomination, although the Rhode Island outcome enhanced Brown's credentials as a comer. Brown takes a built-in advantage into the biggest of next week's contests, the California primary which will apportion 280 Democratic nominating votes. In addition. Brown said he hopes , for another big showing by uncqm' mined entries in New Jersey, although be said the situation there will be different "because they've endorsed both me and (Sen. Hubert H.) Humphrey.", Ohio also is voting next week, and Udail said that one could be pivotal. He said a solid Carter win "will make it extremely difficult to stop him. It may well be all over." Cline outlines link to Bretz DEER LODGE (AP) -- Assassination-conspiracy trial defendant Merrel Cline of Shelby oo Tuesday outlined 20 years of association with disbarred Great Falls attorney Lavon Bretz and consistently denied any involvement in the alleged plot to kill Ally. Gen. Robert Woodahl. The tna) conlinues for a 19th day on Wednesday. Both Cline and Bretz are accused of offering prison convicts Jack LaMere and Harold "Chico" Armstrong $40,000 to kill Woodahl and his former special prosecutor. Under cross-examination, Cline said Bretz had represented him on a number of cases since 1953 and, at one time, held |15,000 for him. Cline said Bretz did not provide him with annual reports about the money or, as far as he knew, pay any interest. Cline said Bretz was holding the money to hide it from one of his two former wives. Cline said one of his former wives believed he was given a large amount of money to keep from involving other persons in a California barber shop bombing incident for which Cline served five years in prison. About one of the state's star witnesses, Cline testified that early during his stay at the Montana State Prison he was told LaMere was not trustworthy and did not believe anything LaMere told him the night of Aug. 20,1975. Cline said that was the night LaMere first approached him about the alleged plot. It was that night, Cline said, that LaMere mentioned a woman named "Betty" had approached LaMere's wife and told her that $10,000, a parole and plane tickets were available to LaMere to kill Woodahl. The prosecutor also pressed CJine about the alleged involvement in the plot of Cline's wife, Shirley, who is alleged to have been the go-between for laMere and a group of Montana lawyers that prosecutors allege were to supply the J40,WO fee. Cline denied ever discussing the assassination plot with his wife and said the reason he told LaMere how to reach her was that LaMere thought he would be paroled Aug. 25. "I told LaMere there had been per- juced testimony against me during my trial in Helena and he told me that when he got out, if he could find out anything about this testimony, he would help me." Gilbert asked, "You gave your wife's name and a way to contact her to a man you didn't :trnst and that you knew was despised?" : Cline replied: "I'd take help from the devtt if he'd offer it." news in brief Prices Good Juen 2 thru June 5,1976 Internal probe checking FBI's own influence WASHINGTON (AP) - The Justice Department is conducting an internal investigation into the possibility that the FBI tried to influence the direction of a congressional probe of security problems in the nuclear industry, two sources close !o the investigation have disclosed. A Justice Department source confirmed that the department's inquiry has been "fruitful" but refused to reveal what had been discovered. An FBI official also confirmed that the subject was under investigation. However, he said Tuesday no evidence had yet been found that the bureau attempted to influence the House panel. The Justice Department investigation is just one facet of a complicated web tying together a Nashville journalist who reportedly .maintained a "special relationship" with the FBt; an FBI agent who is allegedly under investigation for leaking documents to her, and Karen Silkwood, an Oklahoma woman who was killed in an automobile crash eight days after she was contaminated by plutonium. A staff member of the House small business subcommittee on energy and environment said the journalist, Jacque Srouji, gave the panel material she obtained from the FBI. The material temporarily convinced the staff to avoid the Silkwood incident in its probe of nuclear security. The staff member said the FBI material caused concern that questions about Miss Silkwood's character would have dominated the congressional inquiry, rather than issues of nuclear security. When she died on Nov. 13, 1974, Miss Silkwood was on her way to meet a newspaper reporter to discuss her charges of lax security at the Kerr-McGee Corp. plant in Crescent, Okla., where she worked. James B. Adams, the FBI's deputy associate director, told the subcommittee last month that he had "no information that the FBI as an institution or any knowledgeable officials, participated in her (Mrs. Srouji's) appearance before the subcommittee." Road remains open GLACIER PARK -- Despite snow and heavy rainfall Monday night and Tuesday morning, the famed Going- To-The-Sun Road through Glacier National Park remained open Tuesday. Park Management Assistant Dick Munro said the road will remain subject to closure on short notice, depending on the weather. The road will open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily barring any significant weather problems. Munro said persons planning visiting the park by car and intending to drive over Logan Pass should call in advance by dialing the recorded information number of 888-5531. The road first opened this year for visitor traffic on Sunday. Munro said the earliest recorded opening was on May 23 and that the average opening date is June 7. Dispatchers training Sixteen dispatchers with area law enforcement agencies recently completed a three-day professional training school conducted in Kalispell. The course v»as sponsored by the Montana Law Enforcement Academy bureau at Montana State University. Kalispell Police Department participants included Timothy Birk, Vicky Gingery, Connie Lindsey, Sandra Nove, Norma O'Neal and Frieda Terry. Flathead County Sheriff's Department participants were Geraldine Crosswhite, Joan Diest, Sheryl Dyer and Helen Riebe. Nancy Morris and Teresa Slocum of the Whitefish Police Department, Audrey Speer of the Columbia Falls Police Department and Joseph Dumontier and Michael McElderry of the Flathead Tribal Police Department at Dbton also completed the session. McCarthy returning HELENA, Mont. (AP)--A man who became nationally prominent for his opposition to American . participation in the Vietnam war is expected to try Jor a presidential place on Montana's November ballots. He is former U.S. Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy of Minnesota. The McCarthy '76 Campaign Committee, in a telephone call from Washington, D.C., advised the office of secretary of state on Tuesday that a drive for petition signatures will be launched soon in Montana. To get on general-election ballots as an independent candidate for president requires that at least 15,938 signatures of registered electors be obtained on petitions and certified by the secretary of state by Aug. 4, 1976. If the drive is successful, Montanans would have an independent president-vice president team as an alternative to the Democratic and Republican candidates nominated at the upcoming national party conventions. GIRLS' SUMMER FASHION SALE Little Girls' Knit Tops $096 Soil moisture down HELENA (AP) -- There are some soil-moisture shortages developing in the central areas of Montana, adding to the dry crop-stunting conditions already prevalent in much of the northern grain-belt, the state's Crop and Livestock Reporting Service said Tuesday. However, the statewide report shows crops generally are in good condition despite the slow growth and development in the northern and central regions. The weekly report said spring grain seeding is virtually complete, corn planting 80 per cent finished, potatoes 70 per cent planted and dry beans 90 per cent seeded. "Winter wheat was in good to excellent conditions except in the drier areas where condition ranged from fair to good," the report said. "Spring grains are in mostly good condition except only fair where topsoil moisture is lacking." Medicaid warning out WASHINGTON (AP) - The General Accounting Office, flexing a rarely used muscle, says the federal government cannot pay states for certain Medicaid programs unless it makes sure the Medicaid patients are receiving proper care. The GAO, the auditing arm of Congress, warned Health, Education and Welfare Secretary David Mathews and Treasury Secretary William E. Simon on Tuesday that they could be held personally responsible for any illegal payments made after July 1. At stake are millions of dollars in Medicaid payments to the states for long-term hospitalization.
