I have no organization, no committee, and, frankly, no campaign Today's highlight in history: On this date In 1789, at Federal Ilall in New York, George Washington was inaugurated as the first president of the United States. On this date: In 1798, the U.S. Navy Department was created by Congress. In 1803, the Louisiana Purchase was made from France — more than doubling the size of the United States. In 1812, Louisiana was admitted to the Union as the 18th state. In 1900, the engineer of a famous American folk song, Casey Jones, was killed in a train wreck at Vaughan, Miss. In 1915, wireless communication was established between the District of Columbia and tbe Panama Canal Zone. fn mi, White House Chief of indulged in a direct conspiracy funds for the presidency.'Hav- Staff H'R Haldeman P™ SLSZ' ar f er "• '"6 eo« through national cam- ^^vte^EWkS: pressed^ illegal acts. paigns I know the prob ems of man Attv Gen Richard .In this case, the FTC staff organization and campaign fi- Sdien* 'J Whte iS nancing. Any campaign effort Counsel John Dean left office as is extremely costly, totally demanding and requires well disciplined organization and , claimed Wednesday that Kellogg, General Mills, General Foods and Quaker Oats — which together account for 91 per cent of the ready-to-eat cereal market — have engaged in tacitly cooperative marketing practices that serve to shut out new competition. In other words, that they tend to behave as if there were a conspiracy, even though r.onc is demonstrable. The FTC lawyers are asking Administrative Judge Harry Hinkes to order Kellogg, General Mills and General Foods to divest one or more plants and brands. Quaker Oats, the smallest o! the four, would not be required to divest but would be required, as would the others, to license its brands on a royalty-free basis to other companies. If Hinkes should .uphold the prosecution, his decision then is subject to review' by the five FTC commissioners. The cereal industry is asking for an outright dismissal by Hinkes. Edward HoHrey, attorney for General Mills, ^declared, "The government is not going to be able to show -any tacit conspiracy or anything. ... The in- scandal Ihe Watergate mushroomed.

I intend to run for re-election to the United States Senate from the state of Minnesota. I shall continue to speak out on issues as I see them. I shall serve my party to the best of my ability in that a cease-fire had been arranged in the Dominican Republic, where U.S. Marines had landed during a revolt. Five years ago: The Communist government in Peking, China, denounced President Richard Nixon for what was termed "fascist suppression" of American demonstrations against the Vietnam War. One year ago: Communist troops of North Vietnam and the Provisional Revolutionary Government took over Saigon, ending the Vietnam War. Today's birthdays: Queen Juliana of the Netherlands is 67.

To some degree, McMahon said in an interview, all are "insulaled from the consequences" ot their attitude that the very best should always be provided without regard to cost, because thai can be passed on to someone else. McMahon seemed especially irritated by the attitude of some insurers and government officials — by the failure of the former to provide incentives aimed at reducing wasteful use of health care benefits, and by promises of the latter. He said he agreed with legitimate efforts to reduce costs, but that government efforts dkin't always fit that category- While promising free health care to the elderly, he said, they seek to put the payment burden on hospitals by limiting payments to "reasonable" costs, an imprecise, subjective determination. Since this might mean less than the hospital expended. McMahon said, "let them tell us what services they don't want us lo provide arid what patients Ihey don't want us to take care of." 'Such efforts, he said, sought to drive down the cost of the system not by changing cither the inpul of dollars of the benefits, but' by bureaucratic COR- Irols.

You can't Pay More? HOW CAN WE DO IT? The answer is — it's not easy. First of all we can't handle a stock this large in our store, so, — we rented a huge garage for the month of May ONLY. This gives us room to stock and show. Then we engaged a broker to represent us directly at the mills to pick up values as soon as they are woven and become available. Here you'll find close-outs, discontinued styles and colors, irregulars, dealer cancellations, ex- perimental styles and over-runs. Our broker snapped Jhem up, packed them like sardines in a truck and shipped them off to Fergus Falls. Remember we don't waste your time with a phoney sale every day of the year. We wait to be honest with you and give you a real value. This one month sale has been two-years in the making. AT THE FORMER MINNESOTA MOTOR BUILDING, DOWNTOWN!!!
