. May M. to the editor DearlWMdr: Las Vegas lost a prominent friend early Sunday. Thi.s gentle, unassuming woman was devoted to her parents; sincere to her numerous friends; loving to small animals- faithful to her religion; loyal to her lifetime of work at the Chamber of Commerce; and active in many organizations on both local and state levels. Her entire life was shared with others, always seeing only the good in people. Never did she hesitate to help whenever needed and never did she ask anything in return. This friend's death is likened to a child suddenly being taken. Just when she seemed to be reaching a complete happiness of her own, the swift illness struck. The first difficulty is in the understanding, and later the accepting. This Las Vegan was raised here and worked here, passing her faith in her city and its surroundings to a countless number of tourists. This : citizen,was proud of her hometown and she never ceasted praising it. Such women come rarely. Truly, Margaret Long was ;a gift of love to all who knew her and to all of Las Vegas, New Mexico.

First of all, said the President, there should be a full dis~ ·closure · of where campaign money, comes from and how it is spent by every candidate for office from the presidency to the lowest -elective federal office:' "'.'; He .said any campaign item over $100 should be made public. The President said such dis- 8 n closures would help dispel the growth of public skepticism that he said surrounds the present methods of financing political campaigns. The President also asked that there be a $5,000 limit on the total amount which . any individual can contribute to the campaign of any candidate. He asked for a repeal of the present arbitrary limits on the total expenditures of candidates fpi federal office -- because, said the President, they are totally unrealistic and inadequate in these, times ,'b'f television, airplane and radio campaigning. The President also pointed out ^.fjs-'i'^^ 1 ?'··"·· C 6»» ; uauy t \ntiof is an independent New; Mexico newspaper entrusted with the heritage and great traditions of a free American .pwfes qnd mindful of its obligations to the community, state and nation.

And he proposed v changes to intprpye and strengthen ; the ' presidential election campaign fund law. This Jaw for using some tax fund s .to finance campaigns is already on the books, but it is being contested in Congress. The President suggested that funds to finance, presidential campaigns be - provided ; . by' direct congressional 'appropriation. He said .this would give Congress an opportunity to make a., realistic · assessment and express its judgment' on what it would c'ost presidential candidates or parties to 'carry their .yievys to the voter. . By this mtithod, the ^President said, 'Congress would be able to make the amount appropriated for the campaign fund more stable. He said the funds should be used only for expenses which are needed to bring the issues before the public Thej should be limited to radio and television, newspaper and magazine advertising -- and to the preparation and distribution of campaign literature They also would cover the expenses of campaign travel. The ,,fund s ' appropriated fay Congress would be equallv di- Vided -betwWn the fflor pa?^ ties But theie would 1 Tafe 1 pi ! 6L vmons for, re-imbursement to. a minor, party, A minor party would be defined as one which received between f'ye and 25 per cent of. the popular votes cast in the election The President said that under his proposals, the major burden of raising money for the costs of campaigns would be lifted from th'e shoulders of the presidential candidate He said "No longer will he have to rely on the large contribution of wealthy and powerful interests." The President said the immense costs of modern-day campaignuig may cause men and women of limited means to refrain from running for public office. Last year, Congress voted a presidential campaign financing plan which would raise an estimated $60 million dollars for the two;major parties to split during next year's race for the White House. Shortly after being involved in an accident Friday afternoon, William Shillinglaw, 83, 717 Sixth St., died of head injuries in a local hospital. Police said that Shillinglaw's light truck was crossing Grand Ave. from eas*. to west when it was struck by a car moving south on Grand. The truck was pushed several feet but did not turn over. When police arrived at the scene Shillinglaw was in a reclining position on the right side of'the's scat with his head against the windshield. He was unconscious and failed to regain consciousness. He died about 20 minutes later. John William Allison, 44, of Ft. Morgan, Colo., the driver of the other---vehicle- told police he was driving -south on the four lane thoroughfare when he saw ShiHiriglaw's truck. It was raining at the time, ^police said, and Allison told them he could hot stop before hitting the truck. Allison said 'his car's speed was about 35 mph and the truck was moving slower than he was. Both Allison and his wife had cuts and bruises from the 'impact but were not hospitalized. The car was heayily damaged in thel'front.and Allison 'creclitfed the fact that he and his wife wore safety belts which kept them, from striking the windshield with preventing more serious injury. Patrolman Melecio Perea and Lt. Vicente Armijo investigated the accident. No citations were issued at the scene, police said. Fatal Aeeident^This truck, driven by William Shillinglaw, 8.3, 717 Sixth St., was damaged Friday afternoon when it was struck by an automobile at the corner of Mills and Grand Avenues. Shillinglaw died a shori time later from injuries received in the collision.
