Wallace also successful Former astronaut John Gfenn w/ns nomination for senator Rain storms felt In central U.S. Fergus falls (Ml.) tanal Wed. May 8,1974 By CARL P. LEUBSDORF AP Political Writer Former astronaut John H. Glenn Jr. won the Democratic nomination for senator from Ohio on his third try and Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace won renomination for an unprecedented third term on the first big Tuesday of the 1974 primary season. Candidates for three Senate seats, two governorships and more than 50 House seats were chosen as Alabama, (Mo, Indiana and North Carolina held primaries for the November mid-term elections. Voters in the District of Columbia, meanwhile, gave overwhelming approval to a charter that restores a measure of self- government to the nation's capital for the first time in a century. The 52-year-old Glenn, who 12 years ago became the first American to orbit the earth, showed surprising strength in Ohio's urban areas to end the brief Senate tenure of Howard M. Metzenbaum, appointed last December when Republican William B. Saxbe resigned to become attorney general. Opposed by organized labor and the state Democratic organization, Glenn projected himself as a symbol of integrity in the year of the Watergate scandal while Metzenbaum suffered from the disclosure that he paid no federal income taxes in 1969 because of business losses. Glenn will be favored in November against Republican Mayor Ralph Perk of Cleveland, easy victor over Peter E. Voss of Canton. The nominations for governor in Ohio were won without difficulty by Democratic Gov. John J. Gilligan and former Republican Gov. James J. Rhodes, his predecessor, In Alabama, Wallace easily outdistanced four other Democrats. He faces Republican Elvin MeCary in November while seeking to lay the groundwork for another presidential bid in 1976 despite the 1972 assassination attempt that left him partially paralyzed. Democratic Sen. James B. Allen, a Wallace ally, easily won his bid for renomination and is unopposed in November for a second six-year term. In North Carolina, where veteran Democratic Sen. Sam J. Ervin Jr. is retiring, Atty. Gen. Robert Morgan was leading a field of 10 but it was unclear whether he could surpass the 50 per cent needed to win the Democratic nomination without a June 4 runoff. Former Rep. Nick Galifianakis ran second. State Rep. William E. Stevens, a furniture manufacturer and brother-in-law of Rep. James Broyhill, R-N.C., won the GOP primary. In Indiana, the only contests were for House seats and all incumbents were renominated. Senate candidates will be chosen at later party conventions with Democratic Sen. Birch E. Bayh expected to face a stiff challenge in November from Republican Mayor Richard Lugar of Indianapolis. In the Ohio Senate contest, Glenn reversed the result in the 1970 Democratic primary captured by Metzenbaum, 56,'who lost that year's general election to Republican Sen. Robert Taft Jr. Glenn ran almost even with Metzenbaum in the senator's home city of Cleveland and won Columbus and Dayton, which he lost in 1970. Metzenbaum won Cincinnati and Toledo by less than he needed to. With 10,737 of the state's 12,895 polling places reporting, the vote gave Glenn 456,602, Met- zenbaum 359,413. Though Gilligan suffered a setback in the defeat of Metzen- baum, his choice for lieutenant governor, state Rep. Richard Celeste, beat eight opponents. If both Gilligan and Celeste win in November, the way would be cleared for the governor to run for either senator or president in 1976. In Alabama, Wallace's re- nomination was never in doubt. With 2,753 of the 4,641 boxes tabulated, he had 338,272 votes to a total of 176,421 for his four . opponents. The only one to attain a significant total was state Sen. Eugene McLain, who had contended Wallace was more interested in a 1976 presidential race than in Alabama. In rolling up some 65 per cent of the vote, Wallace, who for the first time had some significant black support, -carried several predominantly black counties he had lost in the past. He lost Macon County but more than doubled his past percentage. Three Alabama Democratic congressmen, Reps. Tom Bevill, Bill Nichols and Bob Jones, were unopposed both Tuesday and in November, assuring them of new two-year terms. Four other House members easily won renomination. In North Carolina, Democratic Reps. L. H. Fountain and David Henderson also were unopposed both Tuesday and in November. Other House members also won renomination. In Indiana, all 11 House members won renomination, as did all those who sought new terms in Ohio. In the capital, passage of the home-rule charter means a mayor and city council will be elected in November. Congress will retain control over the city's budget. By The Associated Press Rain storms rattled through the nation's midsection today, while cold air put an icy damper on spring in the Northeast. Rain sloshed over parts of the central Plains and middle Mississippi Valley, with more than an inch falling during the evening at Moline, 111. • Thunderstorms turned into showers before dawn and spread from Ohio and Illinois through Missouri and Kansas. Icy temperatures continued to chill New England and the Great Lakes states, prompting frost and freeze warnings from Michigan into Massachusetts. Under clear skies, readings dropped into the lower 30s and upper 20s from Michigan into western New York and Pennsylvania. But balmy levels in the 60s and 70s were found in the Southern Plains and lower Mississippi Valley and southern California. Showers and thundershowers also were reported in northern New England, the Pacific Northwest and southeast Arizona. And late Tuesday, a thun- derstorm accompanied by 60 m.p.h. winds dumped an inch of rain on Homestead, Fla. Elsewhere, skies were clear over the Southwest, the Rockies and from the Southern Plains through the Gulf coast to the middle and southern Atlantic Coast. Temperatures before dawn ranged from 83 at Needles, Calif., to 24 at Marquette, Mich. Some other reports: Anchorage 48 partly cloudy, Atlanta 54 clear, Boston 44 clear, Buffalo 34 clear, Chicago 45 light ram, Cincinnati 49 cloudy, Cleveland 36 cloudy, Dallas 67 clear.'

ROSENTHAL Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (API - The newest White House stand against yielding subpoenaed tape recordings looks like a replay of last year's battle in the courts. But this time it may end up in the Supreme Court. Last year's drama moved through the U.S. District Court, then the U.S. Court of Appeals before the White House suddenly reversed its stand and yielded. It cost Archibald Cox his job as special Watergate prosecutor, led to the resignations of the attorney general and his deputy and stirred impeachment talk. The current revival, also involving a subpoena against President Nixon for Watergate tapes, has a new presidential lawyer and a new prosecutor in the starring roles. James D. St. Glair, the Boston trial attorney who replaced constitutional scholar Charles Alan Wright at the White House, announced Tuesday that "the President decided we would not be willing to come to an accommodation on that matter and it will be pressed." He was talking about White House efforts to quash the sixth of the subpoena series against the President—this one demanding tapes to be used as evidence in the Watergate cover-up trial next September. Cox's successor, Leon Jaworski—also a skilled trial lawyer —had foreseen the possibility of such a move in his original request to U.S. District Judge John J. Sirica for court backing. He said he was asking the subpoena far in advance of trial so that any protracted court fight wouldn't result in a delay. St.' Clair, too, signaled his intention to carry on the fight in his motion to stop the subpoena, referring to the possibility of "going to a court in which Nixon vs Sirica is not a controlling precedent." The case he referred to was last year's decision by Sirica that the subpoenaed tapes be offered for his review, so that only pertinent matters would go to the grand jury. Sirica was upheld by the appeals court. The next step then was the Supreme Court. When it came to a showdown the President surrendered. With that in mind, St. Clair was asked whether the current hard-line stance would take the matter to the Supreme Court. "I think it is foolhardy on the part of anyone, particularly a lawyer, to say what he would do under circumstances which may'be some time in the future," said St. Clair. There is a basic difference in the Cox subpoena of July 1973 and the current Jaworski demand. I-ast year the subpoena was for evidence to be taken to the grand jury. This one involves evidence to be used against and for the defendants, such as H. R. Haldeman and John D. Ehrlichman, who were once Nixon's closest aides. Jaworski delayed his response to the motion to quash because the White House asked for more time to try to work things out amicably. It is certain he'll claim he can make a compelling showing of need. If Judge Sirica agrees, the case will be rushed to the court of appeals and decided there quickly enough so that a further appeal can be made to the Supreme Court before it recesses in June.
