(DIM I'holo) Jackson unfurls campaign flag WASHINGTON t U P l i - Sen. Henry Jackson, a front-runner for Ihe 1970 Democratic presidential nomination, makes his formal announcement tonight. The Washington senator, who has been organizing his campaign (or more than a year, purchased five minutes of television time from CBS to gain a national audience tor his declaration. Jackson will join three other declared Democratic c a n didates: Rep. Morris Urtall o( Arizona, former Gov. Jimmy Carter of Georgia and former Sen. Fred Harris of Oklahoma. Sources expect Sen. Lloyd Bentsen. D-Tcx.. another undeclared candidate, lo announce on Feb. 17. Jackson's entry would leave one major element missing -- Gov. George Wallace of Alabama, whose 1972 campaign ended in a crippling assassination atlempl. Wallace, slill nol declared, is slaying in a position lo enter, and his strong standing in national public opinion "trial heats" pul him in Ihe front rank of potenlial Democratic candidates. Jackson. 62. has teen regarded one of the leaders for Ihe nomination since Sen. 'Edward Kennedy. D-Mass.. took himself oul pf 1976 presidential speculation last fall. The withdrawal of Sen. Walter Mondale. D-Minn.. who had lieen seen as a candidate of Ihe party's liberal wing, further enhanced Jackson's -status among- political handicappers. · · ' · Jackson was elected lo Ihe House in 19Hland won the first of four Senate terms in 1952. Regarded as one of the mosi effective senators, he is chairman of Hie Senate Inferior CoinniiMcr and has been involved in energy legislation for years. He also has supported a strong U.S. defense establishment and a firmly anti-Communist foreign policy. Me was one of the senators hehind the demand that Itussia permit more Jewish e m i g r a t i o n to gel a trade agi cement. On dome-slit 1 issues, Jackson generally has supported liberal proposals, and has a perfect record; of Ijackiiigy. legislation soughljby organitedhabor.

The gathering shouted and stomped its approval of U A W President Leonard Woodcock's call for a quick lax cut and eventual tax reform lo "make the rich pay Iheir fair shore:" They shouted. "We w a n l Ted." w h e n Sen. Edward Kennedy. D-.Mass.. said "putting Ihe American labor force back lo work is our No. 1 p r i o r i t y .

His prc-announccmeht period has been spent pulling (ogelher a strong campaign organization and raising money. He scored something of a coup last fall iiy hiring Hubert Kcefc. executive director of Ihe Democratic National Committee, as his (op political adviser, and wound up 1974 with $932,000 out of $1.1 m i l l i o n collected --for the campaign ahead. lK)WNI-:V.t'ali[. i l l P I i - The space agency Ims unveiled ;i full si/.e model ol a "space repair Iruck" lhal w ill he able In rocket up lo ailing satellites in (he future, and l i x Ihem in orbil. saving billions ot dollars in launch fusts. liockwcll I n l c r n a l i o n a l and NASA officials showed reporters the model space shuttle Wednesday, p o i n t i n g mil ils a b i l i t y tn do "roadside mainlenance."
