Waldie says he will run for the Democratic nomination for governor of California in the June 4 primary. A search for cemeteries is planned by the Otter Tail County Historical Society. The county-wide search will begin this month with the recording of specific locations of private and public cemeteries. Many of the larger plots have been recorded in a county study, but small family and individual sites are still unaccounted. After all plots are located, the Society hopes to compile a complete register containing all the names, dates, and other information on the individual grave markers in each cemetery. This material will be available to anyone interested. Township officials are being asked to help gather this information in their townships. Individuals, church or service groups who have information about small, remote or abandoned sites; or who would like to help gather the information can contact the Historical Society at 1110 W.

MARTIN Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate, anticipating President Nixon's promised veto of emergency energy legislation, has scheduled a vote on overriding the veto. The Senate, which planned the vote for today, is considered Education veto is planned WASHINGTON (AP) President Nixon says he would be forced to veto a pending education bill because certain provisions of it "would create a bureaucratic nightmare." The President said Tuesday he considers the bill "an urgent priority" but the : present measure contains "major areas of substantive difference that remain to be resolved." In a letter to Sen. Harrison A. Williams Jr., D-N.J., chairman of the Senate Labor and Public Welfare Committee, Nixon said he wants "bolder action" in returning control of education programs to states and communities. He said the Senate bill to provide federal aid to elementary and secondary education "differs so greatly from what I consider to be desirable, that, in its present form, I would be forced to veto it."

(AP) - A missing portrait of President Nixon has been found hidden in a ceiling in the Duke University Law School, where Nixon earned his law degree. The painting, valued at $12,500, was reported missing Monday morning. MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) — A faculty committee at the University of Minnesota has proposed a policy on consult- antships by professors that officials hope will quiet criticism made last year by state senators. John Barley, chairman of the faculty committee, said Monday that the new guidelines would improve "policing" of consultants hips. The new policy places approval of consultantships at the department head level, or by a university dean, rather than by the board of regants. The objective, Barley said, is to give administrators, who are familiar with faculty, the decision on consultantships. The regents, however, would be able to approve all consultantships. The committee said the outside compensated activities of a full-time faculty member should not exceed an average of one day per seven-day week for the term of the appointment. Faculty members would be allowed to engage in outside professional activities if the time involved did not interfere with the discharge of their teaching, research, service, and administrative responsibilities, under the proposed policy. A report in September by state senate researchers alleged a number of violations by professors and said some regulations on consultant work were poorly enforced. Criticism centered on a charge that faculty members were spending too much time outside the classroom. The faculty committee's proposal must be approved by the University's senate and board of regents before it takes effect. more likely than the House to muster the two-thirds needed to override Nixon's rejection of the bill and Us controversial oil- price rollback. Senate Interior Chairman Henry M. Jackson, D-Wash., floor manager of the long- stalled bill, predicted the vote would be very close. Sen. John G. Tower, R-Tex., said: "I would say at this point that the probability is slightly in favor of the veto being sustained in the Senate." The Senate originally passed the bill by a greater than two- thirds margin, while the House vote fell 15 short of the needed two-thirds. Even before the House vote, Nixon said he would veto the bill principally because he believes its rollback provision would lead to decreased oil production and longer gasoline lines. The current Congress has overridden only one of nine previous vetoes, enacting the measure limiting the President's war-making powers. Jackson has claimed that the oil rollback would reduce the pump price of gasoline by up to five cents a gallon and cut soaring propane prices in half. The administration, backed by Republicans and members from oil-producing states, contends that the rollback would make it unprofitable for the oil companies to expand their production. Meanwhile, the House began work on a bill to consolidate several federal agencies into a new federal energy administration. The administration supports the measure to set up an agency that presumably would be headed by Simon. In another energy-related development, the American Automobile Association estimated that one out of every five service stations was out of gasoline last week, with the impact of the shortage appearing most strongly on the Eastern Seaboard. Physician labor union supported MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Although they may lack widespread support among their colleagues, some physicians are trying to drum up support for a medical labor union. The state Medical Society's policy-making board has before it a resolution calling for a study of whether the organization should be "constituted and registered as a labor union under the National Labor Relations Act." The resolution is up for consideration at the society's annual meeting of the House of Delegates, beginning March 24 in Milwaukee. If the society were to become a labor union, it could' 'demand negotiations" on fees and working conditions for professionals who are not self-employee, the resolution says. Wisconsin doctors draw an average estimated salary of $32,000 a year. There are about 4,200 of them. Earl Thayer, the society's executive director, said he thinks interest in forming a labor union stems from a feeling that the society is not dealing effectively with "government interference." "The primary thrust of physician frustration is with third parties gelling involved in patient-doctor relationships," Thayer insisted. vUD: ^ ^ '^double discounter WHITE Pnces 0r o - Co mp re ° r GREE1N STAMPS White Drug's double discounts Add-Up to Big Money Savings!
