Million Member Club is McGovern asset THE COURIER-NEWS Tuesday, October 3, 1972 A-5 Witch rumored helping probe of girl's death I dXlTi A f5 jXfi A ffV 4 3 I UAMJULsig' SltMiyg iryfejly By DON CAMPBELL Gannett News Service WASHINGTON If the Lincolnesque visage and statesmanlike tone of Ed Muskie don't send the voters scurrying for their checkbooks, then certainly the baby blue eyes of Paul Newman will put them in the mood to want to give. Springfield Police Chief George Parsell said, "I heard that some people from the department supposedly brought a witch out there, but I know nothing about it. "The people from the county prosecutor's office were also supposed to know something about it. Why don't you call them?" ADVERTISEMENT That is the assumption of the people who are directing the first bona fide grassroots political campaign financing operation in history the McGovern Million Member (MMM) Club. Last Sunday night, it was Muskie, the safe, reliable, loyal Democrat, warning television viewers in carefully chosen words that they "can't afford four more years of Richard Nixon," and asking them to contribute $25 and join the MMM.

Next Sunday night it will be Paul Newman, the politically sophisticated movie star, closing out a half-hour paid broadcast starring Democratic presidential nominee George McGovern, with an appeal to his fans for cash. THERE AREN'T YET a million members in the MMM only about 340,000, to be exact but his unique fund-raising project is meeting with increasing success and this week expects to receive a million dollars for the first time in a five-day period. SAVES HEALS TO REQUEST PRAYER FOR HEALING' FROM THE HOLY GHOST, CHECK HERE TO REQUEST INSTRUCTION SHEET TO RECEIVE HOLY GHOST, CHECK ONLY THE SAVED GO TO HEAVEN. TO RECEIVE JESUS AND BE SAVED YOU OR LOVED ONES EACH WRITE YOUR NAMES ON A LINE BELOW: Last week was the best week yet $720,000 in contributions averaging just over $21.50 apiece flowed into McGovern's national headquarters here. An aide to Morris Dees, the 35-year-old Alabama millionaire who conceived the MMM, says the intake of campaign dollars should double or triple before election day.

Over $4 million has been raised so far through contributions to the MMM, and Dees said yesterday he is still aiming for a total of between $12 million and $15 million. WHEN DEES began the fund-raising drive in early August, he set a hard target figure of $15 million which he is now hedging on slightly. He also said then that if the drive didn't bring in a million dollars a week, it wouldn't be a success. He will apparently reach that level only after seven weeks, but Dees nonetheless contends that the mass appeal for money is "a success." In addition to the television appeals by Muskie and Newman, some 15 million letters of solicitation will have been mailed out to potential contributors by the middle of this month, most of them from McGovern, but a sizable number signed by Sen. Edward M.

Kennedy. MILLIONS OF APPEALS are being distributed as inserts in Sunday newspapers in 15 cities where McGovern feels his candidacy finds most favor Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison, Cincinnati, San Francisco and New York City among them. And on top of that, the McGovern troops in the field are soliciting MMM memberships door-to-door in about 20 cities. The Pharmacy Commemorative Stamp which will go on sale Nov. 10 is reproduced above.

It's the first stamp honoring the profession ever issued in the U.S. A total of 135 million will be printed by the Postal Service. The stamp is 1.44 inches wide by 0.84 inches high. It was designed by artist Ken Davies, of Madison, Conn. Predominant colors are varying shades of brown, tan, and orange.

In addition to the mortar-and-pestle and Bowl of Hygeia symbols, the design includes, at left, a typical 19th century cologne bottle. at right, a 19th century tincture bottle with mushroom stopper. First-day-of-issue ceremonies will be held Nov. 10 in Cincinnati, during the mid-year meeting of the American Pharmaceutical Assn. House of Delegates.

Pharmacists who want a "first-day cover" of the stamp should send a "cachet," obtainable from stamp dealers, to Postmaster, General Post Office, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. Cachet envelopes for the pharmacy stamp are offered by a number of companies. An official cachet will be available from the APhA. Safety caps on aspirin child safety precaution SPRINGFIELD (AP) -Union County law enforcement officials investigating the apparent murder of a high school girl may be using a witch in their probe. The dead girl, Jeannette DePalma, 16, was found Sept.

19 in a secluded area of Houdaille Quarry. Her decomposed body left authorities little to work with other than speculate that she was strangled. Police reported the body had no apparent injuries or broken bones. They also said they were led to the scene when someone's dog brought home a piece of an arm. What authorities are apparently focusing on, though, are pieces of wood crosses over the head and other pieces of wood that framed the body "like a coffin." Authorities said Jeannette's death may be linked to a "coven" or witchcraft assembly thought to exist in the area.

The dead girl's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Salvatore DePalma, also said she "could have been the victim of black witchcraft and Satanism." However, the DePalmas are upset by reports that police brought in a witch to inspect the area where the body was found. "We were afraid the witch would try to bring Jeannette back from the dead," Mrs. DePalma said.

The Rev. James L. Tate of the Assemblies of God Evangel Church in Elizabeth, where the family attends religious services, also said a witch is believed to be helping in the investigation. "I never did hear if the witch found anything," he said, "but I know she was there at the scene." Authorities meanwhile refuse to comment on the report. NAME.

Effective Saturday, Oct. 14, aspirin-containing products may not be dispensed by pharmacies unless they contain the new safety closure caps designed to baffle children under four years old. The New Jersey Pharmaceutical Association said today its member outlets will have posters displayed notifying customers of the change.

The posters will state: "New drug safety law requires some prescriptions be dispensed in child resistant safety containers. Your prescription may have a new cap. Pharmacist will provide instruction for opening upon request. Patient may request regular containers if needed. Please discuss this with pharmacist before prescription is dispensed." The provision for requesting regular containers, the NJPhA explains, is based on an exemption in the federal law that permits the prescribing physician or patient in in- For sone NEW CHANGES in THE COURIER-HEWS on OCT.

The exemption is intended to help arthritics, age weakened persons or others for whom the safety closures are unnecessary or difficult to manipulate, and they must live where there are no children in the dwelling.

"When physicians want drugs dispensed in regular, rather than new safety containers, the instructions must be written on the actual prescription order," according to Brian H. Miller, president of the Somerset County Pharmaceutical Association. This unit represents Hunterdon, Somerset and Warren Counties. "Where the patient himself makes a similar request, he must sign a waiver on the back of the prescription, and even then it should be a matter of informed judgment by the pharmacist for each individual prescription, based on his knowledge of the patient and circumstances."
