The Idaho r'rce Press i The News-Tribune, Saturday, February 8,1975-5 ^_ m Tnelflanorrceivess 4niM\ews-iriiTMmr,3«wui),rcuiii4ii Election study team finds | Selected Stocks -- Dow Jones complaints partly justified ballots in Canyon County for°the 1974 election were in part " f a c t u a l l y correct" or "meritorious" and in others improvable, a special study team reported Friday. .· A bipartisan election study team investigated the Canyon . . C o u n t y election focusing on five complaints, · including t h a t proper safeguards against ballot tampering were not followed during transfer of the ballols The Canyon County investigation was performed under the secretary of stale's office after an official comp l a i n t alleging improprieties was filed in the office of the attorney general. The complaint was filed by Lynda D a m e r o n , Canyon County Democratic Central Committee chairwoman. The study concluded that "proper safeguards against ballot t a m p e r i n g were not followed during the transfer ol ballots from Canyon County Courthouse lo the J.H. Simplot Co. headquarters, site of the back-up computer, as the transfer carriers were not sealed." However, the investigation 'revealed t h a t "the transfer 'carriers were placed in the ·locked trunk of a sheriff's automobile at all times during transfer." While the study team found the complaint of insufficient safeguards was "factually correct" the committee noted .that "bi-partisan testimony confirmed the uninterrupted transfer of ballots. . "The c o m m i t t e e therefore concludes that the opportunity .for ballot tampering as a consequence of unlocked transfer ·.carriers was obviated by the observed portage of those same C f ri ^ S in lhe locked T unk of a Questioned (o determine (he 'attempt lo affect the outcome of S h " A c o m p l a i n t that proper safeguards against ballot tampering were not followed in four precincts as ballot boxes were unlocked at various limes during the balloting in the general election, brought conflicting testimony during (he study. The committee said thcru was "neither evidence nor testimony lo suggest ballot tampering." The investigation found that while the boxes were unlocked, that was done prior to the start of balloting lo make sure the ballot biwes were empty and later place the ballots in transfer carriers for subsequent vote labulalion by the county clerk. But the committee said "insufficient evidence exists to conclude thai the prescribed safeguards against b a l l o t t a m p e r i n g were not implemented during the balloling. "Allegations lo the contrary entered subsequent to election day are self-limiting. No means then exists to verify the charge or to remedy the abuse, if any. Assurance of f a i t h f u l compliance with such implementation can only be enjoyed upon knowledge that c o u n t y election officials, precinct election judges, observers and voters alike perform their respective functions in a responsible manner." A third complaint said that ballols may have been tampered with lo reverse substantial vote margins for certain Democratic candidates after tallies were reported on KCID Radio at 11:30 p.m. election night with only three precincts left uncounted. "The committee finds this premise to be erroneous," the report said. Dale Peterson, station manager for KCID radio was content of thai broadcast and he said the broadcast reflected cumulative totals as shown on the county's computer printout. The totals available at 11:30 p.m. would have reflected only 14 per cent of the total vole. "The leads of various candidates may have been diminished or reversed after the remaining 86 per cent of the ballols were tabulated," the committee said. "This fact alone is insufficient to suggest ballot tampering." The committee said it found the fourth allegation "meritorious" that concerned an improper conflict of interest as the county clerk, a candidate for re-election, picked up ballols and transferred them f r o m precinct 8 lo the county courthouse without bi-parlisan observation. The committee said however there was no evidence presented that the ballots were tampered .vith. "Logic nullifies any such ·iuggeslion," they said. "An an election by altering only a portion of lhe ballots cast in one precinct would be an exercise in futility rather than of deceit." But the committee noted it raises suspicion lo have a candidate for office handling ballols or tabulating them unobserved. The clerk-candidate who does not perceive "the potential for abuse his responsibilities carry cannot engender confidence and respect in his performance of those duties," lhe report said. The fifth allegation said ballot tampering may have occured at the county courthouse as the final tally was conducted there without bi-parlisan observation. "The committee questions the wisdom of tabulating ballols without bi-partisan observation but perceives no error in the result nf the tabulation." The committee made five recommendations for informing the i n d i v i d u a l s involved with ballot handling and tabulations on ways to avoid such problems in the future.

Lobbyists got call girls for certain congressmen. Newsmen knew all about these goings-on --and usually kept silent. At least that's what a group of Washington correspondents said on CBS' "60 Minutes" show, lo be aired Sunday. They also had Ihis to say: If the boozers and the skirt chasers in high public office keep it up, they may be in for a rude shock. "I doubt whether now in this environment, that all these so- called drunks and womanizers are going to get away with it for very long," said Peter Lisagor of the Chicago Daily News. Some examples of hanky- panky cited by the journalists: --Columnist Jack Anderson said, "1 had positive first hand evidence that President Kennedy did a little womanizing on the side. I didn't print it." --Maxine Cheshire of the Washington Post said she had evidence former President Richard Nixon drank heavily at Camp David, but her paper didn't use the story because she could not find a second source. On the other hand, Anderson said he wrote the story because he was satisfied he had the proof. --Eileen Shanahan of the New Second temblor strikes Montana BOZEMAN, Mont. (UPI) The second earthquake in a week struck western Montana Friday night without causing damage. The temblor registered 4.0 on the Richlcr Scale, the Hebgen Lake Ranger Station reported. Earlier in the week, a mild quake shook the Rockies about 230 miles to Ihe northwest, near Kalispell, Mont. There was no damage. Now you know By United Press International The coldest temperature ever recorded in Canada, measured at the Snag weather station in the Yukon, was 81 degrees below York Times said she believes thal'lobbyisls are procuring call girls for members of Congress and their staffs. She also said she had once seen a prominent senator drunk on the Senale floor and wanted to write a story. The Times told her to forget it. Said Peter Lisagor of the Chicago Daily News: "Now, we're in a post-Watergate period and we're still undergoing what I think is a kind of Watergate catharsis. I believe that there's an inclination and temptation now on the part of an awful lot of · reporters in this town lo report the kinds of things that have been going on on the Hill for a long lime. "And I doubl whether now in this environment, that all these so-called drunks and womanizers are going to get away with it for very long." Novelist Barbara Howarsaid, "Now a politician comes to Washington and he's grabbing every available fanny in town. I think that should make a news story somewhere."

Tnat's why it's a good idea to make your hot water use energy wise. For instance, if you have a garbage disposer, use cold water when you run it. Hot water simply isn't necessary and is a waste of energy. Other hot water energy'tips: · Repair leaky faucets. A leak of one drop per second for a month will pour 200 gallons of hot water down the drain. · Wash clothes only when you have a full washer load. Also, use cold water settings when possible. · For automatic dishwashers that don't have partial load settings, rinse and hold your dishes until you have a full load. · Keep in mind that showers take Jess hot water than baths. Remember: Water and the energy to heat it both are important resources, Use them wisely.
