Threats WASHINGTON (AP) - Police potted a guard inside the office of Rep. Wayne Hays, embroiled in a sex-payroll scandal, after his staff reported "threats and people causing some problems," the chief of the Capitol Police said today. The guard was removed at 9 a.m. EOT today after an around-the-clock watch that began Friday afternoon in Hays' office at the Raybum House Office Building, said Chief James M. Powell. He said he knew of no incidents and no reports of any while the guard was on duty. Meanwhile, in an 'interview with The Washington Star, Elizabeth Ray, the 33-year-old blonde who claims Hays put her on his Administration Committee staff to be his mistress, said she has started a second book about her Washington experiences. The newspaper reported that she said she started her first, to be published later this month, in longhand. Asked if there are recordings she reportedly taped of police guard for Hayes Â«^L ^ r _ l --/ ^t bedroom intimacies with other Washington figures, she told the Star: "I cannot comment ...," but added: "Listen, I can't type and I can't tape." The newspaper said she seemed to make the latter remark jokingly. In New Alexandria, Ohio, Hays, 65, who has admitted having had a "personal relationship" with Miss Ray, told reporters Sunday that some members of the Administration committee think stepping down temporarily as its chairman "is a gesture I ought to make and (that) I'll come back..." His spokeswoman, Carol CUwson, has said the Ohio Democrat will meet with members of the committee this week to talk the matter over with them. Hays already has stepped aside as chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign committee until investigations into the scandal are over. He denies that Miss Ray provided him with sex as. part of her duties. He says she did staff work for the commute*. Former Rep. Xeaoeth Gray, D-I11., (or whom Mb* Ray worked before joining the committee staff, says the it able to type and handle other secretarial jobf. But copies of letteri he has provided which she initialed as the typist contain several errors in typing and spelling. Chief Powell said the guard was stationed In Hays' office at the request of the congressman's staff. "I understand there have been visits from the general public, some irate, who Â«ppear to be bonier-itae mental, set off by MOW Mpect*fcwt tto tfcÂ«t they read k Ike pram " Powell said. He said there wu concern w well about "wxepUbUlty of gtbug K- vaÂ» to records, people without legal authorization to do u." At the fame time Hays Inbed out at Rep. Thomas P. "Tip" O'NeiU, D- Mass, who saW Saturday that Hajri "will either give up the House Administration Committee chairmanship or be removed from it." British to get money help WACUTWrÂ»Tf\W I Atl 1 * 1X__ T t _ i _ j Â« * . . . _ / - ! . _ _ ( _ Â·Â» .1 _ , *TM" WASHINGTON AP - The United States and 10 other nations will make IS billion available to Great Britain to help it through its financial crisis caused by the steep drop in the value of the pound, a U.S. government announcement said today. The announcement, made jointly by the U.S. Federal Reserve System and the Treasury Department, said the money will be made available "in the common interest in the stability and efficient functioning of the international monetary system." The money will be made available as a standby credit to be borrowed when needed by the Bank of England, the central bank of Great Britain. Of the total, Â»2 billion will be put up by the U.S. government. The rest of the funds will come from Fiance, West Germany, Japan, Switzerland, Canada, and several other nations, as well as the Bank for International Settlements. The joint Treasury-Federal Reserve announcement said the funds were offered because of the decline in the value of the British pound, which went from $2.02 in early March to its current exchange rate of about $1.71. The decline has put increasing pressure on Britain's Labor government, which already was faced with trying to control one of the industrial world's worst inflation rates. The amount of money and the way in which it is being made available appear unprecedented for a major industrial nation. One way the Bank of England can use the money is to buy British pounds to keep their value from declining further. American corporations with subsidiaries in Great Britain are reported sustaining substantial losses because of the pound's decline. Of the $2 billion to be made available from the United States, $1 billion would be from the Federal Reserve System under an existing currency exchange agreement with the Bank of England. Degree embroils Moynihan COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Daniel Patrick Moynihan, the former United Nations ambassador and master of the ctever phrase that of tens lands him in controversy, is the center of a dispute at Ohio State University over an honorary degree he will get. "Throughout his tenure of public service, black Americans have been victimized by the rhetoric and mythmaking which has emanated from the articulate Mr. Moynihan's reports and writings," said Patricia D. James of Cleveland, the only black trustee on the university's board, who opposed awarding him an haiorary doctor of laws degree. The board voted 7-2 to give Moynihan the degree at spring commencement Friday and the recipient-to-be quipped: "That's like wishing you a speedy recovery and voting 7-2 for it." Mrs. James cited as a case in point a 1965 report that Moynihan wrote for President Lyndon Johnson entitled "The Negro Family: The Case For Action." Mrs. James said, "The widely-publicized assertions made in this report concerning the pathology of the black family have become an Integral part of social science folklore and cannot be revoked, Mr. Moynihan is guilty of analyzing data by color rather than by income level."

Memorabilia merchants claim the Birtish rock Very difficult choice today -- should I talk about the Black Cherry Aphid or something philosophical. Seeing's now it's about half cold-wet miserable (as I write this, let those lousy little aphids suffer another week. You can spray with malathion or diazinon if you've got them -- on your cherry tree, that is. So, the aphid lost out! As I perceive the social pendulum swinging, it seems that one of the great social ideas of the sixties, known as "Do Your Own Thing," is losing steam and becoming anemic! That's not all bad or all good, I think the idea itself is relevant to us all. We are each unique, and one of the great challenges of life is becoming what the good Lord gave us each the potential to be. A non-contemporary social commentator, name of Shakespeare, said something like, "To thine own self be true -- thou canst not then be false to any man." I like the first part the best. The Ida of "Do Your Own Thing" may not have been so bad, but like so many good ideas, it got all bent out of shape in the translation. (As I would like to see it translated) In the popular vernacular it got to mean "to Hell with everything -- especially responsibility, effort, thought and hard work, and just do what comes easily and pleasantly." And that, baby, is where the boat got missed. Finding out whether you're the world's greatest pianist, mathematician, physicist, environmentalist, singer, sewer line digger, mountain climber, philosopher, plumber, logger, or truck driver just cannot be easy. Finding out what your thing is can only be reasonably accomplished through a lifetime of effort, study and meditation. I think of Pearl Buck saying on her 79th birthday, "The last nine years of my life have been the most satisfying for I have learned more about myself than through any other nine-year period in my life." How beautiful! So, a lot of people misinterpreted a reasonable philosophy, and some of them didn't. It should have been renamed, "Be Your Own Thing," for the secret of life is in the living -- the becoming of something. Not too much effort is expended in becoming nothing, and it's not a pleasant place to be. Yet, during these years a lot of young people recognized that our national value system was bent like a pretzel, as many of us recognize now with all the corruption revelations from business, industry and society. There was a need to change our overall direction. For those who accurately interpreted the challenge of "Be Your Own Thing," life will be interesting and rewarding although not necessarily successful in those ways our culture defines "success." In fact, to "Be Your Own Thing," might almost be the antithesis of "conventional success," But during the '60s quite a body of youth did take some other tracks into the future; some of these are highly viable and will be the tracks that seemed to be iun, fun, but they led nowhere -- dead end streets. That was sad. I would hope that all of us find a way to "become." "Do Your Own Thing" was confused as an idea just as "Freedom" is. Freedom didn't mean free to do as we darn well please -- even to do nothing. In its richest form It meant, free to become a whole person and not at the expense of others.
