Democrats to complete some unfinished work By DON McLEOD AP Political Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The last preliminary bout to the Democratic party's mini- convention begins Saturday in Kansas City with the drafting of a proposed party charter. Old party antagonisms could produce the first volley in another intraparty battle, depending on how well the charter commission does in compromising the remaining sore issues. The Saturday and Sunday sessions wind up the work of the commission, which was created by the reform wing during the 1972 presidential campaign and directed to draw up the first Mrs. Dorothy Soward dies at Lake Region Mrs. Dorothy Soward, 53,709 Friberg Ave., died Thursday at Lake Region Hospital. Services will be held Monday at 2 p.m. at Bethlehem Lutheran Church with the Rev. Otto Dale officiating. Burial will be in Oak Grove Cemetery. She was born in Deer Creek June 22,1921, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Axel Nelson. She lived most of her life in or near Fergus Falls and owned and operated a resort on Wall I^ake. She married Benona Soward in Chippewa Falls, Wis., in 1941. He died in 1956. Mrs. Soward was a member of the VFW Auxiliary and was a charter member of the Eagles Auxiliary. Surviving are a daughter, Mrs. Gordon (Sylvia) Johnson, Fergus Falls; two grandchildren; a sister, Mrs. Ruby Dufour, Fergus Falls; a brother, Vernon Nelson, Aptos, Calif. Visitation beginning Saturday at noon and continuing until time of service at Glende-Johnson-Nelson Funeral Home, Fergus Falls.

The final version will be voted on in December by the party's first midterm convention, also in Kansas City. A tentative charter has been circulating since March to allow support or opposition to specific planks to develop. Fights are expected to come in three major areas: The manner of electing national party chairmen, whether to continue the midterm convention idea and creation of a judicial council to referee party disputes. For the most part, the charter formalizes long-standing structures and procedures. But there are some important innovations, including something of a Democratic bill of rights which guarantees open access to the party for "all who desire to support the parly and who wish to be known as Democrats." Two competing formulas would change the system for electing national party chairmen, both aimed at avoding past conflicts but taking different approaches. The leading plan would provide for election of the national chairman just before and just after each presidential cam- Astiby native's husband dies at 75 Henry S. Olsen Sr., 75, West Allis, Wis., died there Tuesday. Services were held there yesterday. His wife was the former Clara Benson of Ashby. He was born in Trondheim, Norway, coming to this country as a young man. He married Clara Benson July 11, 1929. Surviving are his wife; three daughters, Mrs. Marlene Fenner and Mrs. Gloria Lemmer, both of Milwaukee; and Mrs. Charlotte Hafemer, Waukesha, Wis.; two sons, Henry Jr. and Robert, both of Milwaukee; and 14 grandchildren. paign. This would allow the parly's presidential nominee to pick a chairman of his choice to head the party during his campaign. But il also would avoid the embarrassment the party went through after the last presidential election when the chairman, Jean Westwood, was ousted after Sen. George McGovern's landslide defeat. An automatic post-campaign election would allow the choice of a new chairman with better party support without the necessity of first throwing the old one oul, However, an alternative supported by the staunchest reformers would remove the whole thing from the influence of presidential politics by having the chairman elected after each campaign. This would mean a chairman picked without the influence of the euphoria following a nomination and untied to any particular candidate. But it also would mean a presidential nominee picked four years later might have to campaign with a chairman not of his choosing, possibly even a political opponent, at the party helm. ABA rejects immunity, okays conditional amnesty Meetings The City Board of Zoning Adjustment will meet at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 26 in the City Hall lower conference room to discuss zoning requests by Dr E.

HONOLULU (AP) - The American Bar Association has resolved that former President Richard M. Nixon should not be immune from prosecution for any wrongdoing in connection with Watergate. The resolution approved by the nation's largest legal organization Thursday said the law should be enforced "regardless of the position or status of any individual." Though it never mentioned him by name, the brief but carefully worded resolution unquestioningly applied to Nixon, its sponsors say. "It would be less than realistic if anyone thinks it doesn't refer to the Nixon case," said Maurice Rosenburg of New York, a member of the Resolutions Committee which put the proposal in final form.

By JONATHAN WOLMAN Associated Press Writer A new wave of criticism has been directed at police in several U.S. cities, and the reaction suggests precinct politics may be the most explosive issue now facing urban leaders. In a number of major cities the police are on the defensive after liberal politicians and reform-minded police began chipping away recently at time-honored promotion and hiring policies. The Detroit Police Department is undergoing painful changes to eliminate what the new black mayor calls "its whole goddamn racist attitude." In Atlanta, City Council members tried once to impeach the chief of police, and may try again. The mayor says, "for a period of time there was an independent paramilitary organization" in the city. The federal government is suing the City of Chicago, charging its police force discriminated against blacks, women and Spanish-speaking persons in hiring and promotions. Where many police forces have long operated in virtual autonomy, these are the subject of widespread i public debate, and increasingly, civilian review. : "The council has an idealistic concept of where the city is going, and that law enforcement would not be necessary," says Berkeley, Calif., police Capt. Darrell Hickman. "They favor programs that would make the police unnecessary." Berkeley is a progressive community with strong student influences. Detroit and Atlanta are cities in transition. With increasingly large minority populations, both elected black mayors for the first time in 1973. Reports from each of the cities indicate the influence of politicians an the machinery of law enforcement agencies is growing. Atlanta Mayor Maynard Jackson recently said he was "astounded" at police overreaction to a series of civil rights demonstrations in the southern city. Detroit's Coleman Young, abolished the city's STRESS unit, an anticrime decoy squad which critics said were responsible for a number of unnecessary shooting deaths. Jackson abolished a similar squad in Atlanta. The issues differ slightly in each community, but the slow- road of reform is unmistakable. Approval came without debate or dissent in the House of Delegates, the legislative body of the 185,000-member organization. On the matter of Vietnam draft resisters, the House voted 117-110 to endorse conditional amnesty. The resolution endorses legislation before Congress to grant immunity from prosecution in exchange for two years' service in . an organization such as the Peace Corps. Among those favoring the proposal was former Ally. Gen. Elliot L. Richardson, the featured speaker on Thursday. As other speakers have during the week, he tried to analyze the conditions that led to Watergate, the overriding theme of the association's 97th annual convention, which ends today.' •'A fallacy that must be purged at the outset is the notion that the chief actors in Watergate were uniquely evil men," said Richardson, who quit as attorney general rather than fire the special Watergate prosecutor as Nixon had ordered him to do. "When a person's primary allegiance is only to his temporary employer, and not to any larger community, it takes strength of character to buck the system," Richardson said. He asked, "... How many of us can be sure we would have been able to resist this kind of pressure?" The ABA declared with new emphasis that its rules of ethics and discipline apply to all lawyers at all times, including those who have left private practice to take public office or perform in other public service. Some Watergate figures already have been suspended or barred from law practice and others, including Nixon, are under investigation for possible discipline. In other matters, the association overwhelmingly rejected a proposal urging state legislatures to repeal laws making prostitution illegal. Youth is found guilty MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) — A 17-year-old Minneapolis youth who was certified to stand trial as an adult was found guilty Thursday in Hennepin District Court of second- degree manslaughter in the shooting death of his mother's boyfriend.

Jiirial Fri., August 16,1974 2 Road toll reaches 424 By The AiMclated Prea The deaths of an elderly St Cloud widow In a Stearns County crash and a rural Zimmerman, Minn., couple in a Sherburne County accident has raised Minnesota's 1974 blab- way toll to 424, compared with 594 a year ago. The Stearns County sheriff's office said Louise Borgert, 72, widow of the late Mayor Lawrence Borgert of St. Cloud, was lulled Thursday in a two-car accident at the intersection of county roads near St. Stephen. She was alone in her car. Officers said the second car was driven by Catherine Schumer, 61, rural Rice, Minn. She was hospitalized with injuries along with her husband, Peter, 67. Borgert served as mayor of St. Cloud from April 1952 until he died in office in June 1953. The State Patrol said Alex Radio, 67, and his wife, Marjorie, 59, died Thursday after their car collided with a gravel truck driven by Richard Beach, North Branch, Minn., at the intersection of a county road and U.S. 169 north of Elk River. Reach suffered minor injuries, the Patrol said.
