30 Section 1 .CHICAGO TRIBUNE. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1, 1970 Tower , Ticker - Lee Majors by Robert Wiedrich A WONDERFUL WORLD: For the last 18 months, Bunnie Bunn of Roanoke Rapids, N. C, has received almost 400 letters from a kind hearted, but mysterious Chicagoan known only to him as Uncle Louie. To the 35-year-old former machinist, who has lived in constant darkness since being blinded five years ago in an accident, the letters have been a source of comfort and inspiration in a small southern town where people are warm and wonderful, but the days are long without sight and the nights even longer. Bunn's mother, Mrs. Ernestine Bunn, has road each of the letters to her Korean war veteran son, letters filled with hope and news of an outside world with which he has lost contact. And altho Uncle Louie has become a welcome visitor in the Bunn home, he has thwarted all attempts to thank him, for not once has he divulged his identity or furnished a return address in Chicago. He has only explained that he found Bunn's name in a magazine for shut-ins. On a recent day, Mrs. Bunn dropped Mayor Daley a line, asking for help in locating her son's benefactor. "I know you're a busy man," she wrote, "but having watched you on television, I believe you are a man who can get things done." Daley passed the letter on to Lt. John J. Doyle of the missing persons section and, with the limited information at hand, detectives did their best, but no clew to Uncle Louie's identity could be found. So, we're passing on the information to our readers, too, in the hope that Uncle Louie can be found, so that the man into whose life he has brought so much hope can properly thank him.

Pop Bottles Send Co-ed to See Fiance Honolulu, March 31, IUPD Petite Dee Hudson and her fiance, army Sgt. Mark Han-nan, were together on a Hawaiian holiday today thanks to 15,300 pop bottles. Miss Hudson, 19, a sophomore at Ohio Dominican college in Columbus, O., collected the bottles to finance her trip here for a reunion with Hannan, who was on a rest and recuperation leave from Viet Nam. They were reunited yesterday at the Fort Derussy center in Waikiki. "It's wild, man," the 21 year-old parachutist said of the pop bottle campaign. "One of Those Things" "It's one of those things where you just don't know what to think." Then Hannan and Miss Hudson strolled off, arm in arm. The blue-eyed Miss Hudson exolained how she got to Hawaii. "I was talking to the girls in the dorm one day and I said, How am I going to collect the money to go meet Mark in Hawaii on his R&R?' "One of the girls said, 'What about collecting pop bottles?' and somehow here I am." News Media Help The Columbus and Mansfield newspapers kept a running account of the bottle collecting campaign and the news serv ices picked up the story, Miss Hudson said. "It went all over one guy in Korea read about it in the star and stripes newspaper and he sent me a Korean Coke bottle full of pennies. "And I started getting phone calls like you couldn't believe." Letters came from all kinds of persons. Writes "Funsy Letters" "This one guy kept writing me. He'd send me a letter with $5 in it every week. But he's really weird. He wrote these funsy letters about leprechauns and Easter bunnies," she said. "And one nice older lady left a whole sack of bottles on the dorm steps. She had them all neatly wrapped in tissue paper, but they were no -return bottles." Miss Hudson and Hannan plan an August wedding. N. Y. DEMOCRAT GROUPTO ACT ON CANDIDATES Committee to Make Its Choices BY VINCENT BUTLER Chicago Tribune Pnsi Service Liberty, N. Y., March 31 Leaders of a badly-split Democratic party gathered here tonight for a two-day meeting of the state committee to indorse candidates for United States senator, governor, and other top state offices. Regardless of the outcome of the meeting, which opens tomorrow at Grossinger's hotel, a divisive primary fight seems assured. Principal attention has focused on the fight for the committee's designation for governor. Arthur Goldberg, a former Supreme court justice, is considered to be out in front despite charges he is the candidate of the bosses. 5 Rivals for Goldberg Goldberg has five rivals. They are Eugene Nickerson, Nassau county executive; Robert M. Morgenthau, former United States attorney for the southern district of New York; William Vanden Huevel, former Kennedy aid; Howard J. Samuels, an industrialist, and Queens District Atty. Thomas Mackell. Analysts say that Goldberg has more than 50 per cent of the votes of the 345-member committee. He said when he made a belated entry into the race that he would not run unless he got a majority. His opponents dispute the figure. They charge he got into the race only after he had been assured committee support by such county leaders as Meade Espdsitio of Brooklyn, Frank Rosseti of New York, and Joseph Crangle of Buffalo. All the candidates say they will enter the June 23 primary regardless of the state committee's action. One, Samuels, said he would drop out if Mario Procaccino became a primary candidate as he has threatened. Procaccino May Run Procaccino is a Democratic conservative who lost the mayoralty to John V. Lindsay last November. In a preview of what could happen in the gubernatorial contest, he won the mayoralty nomination with 32 per cent of the vote after four opponents had split the liberal vote. He said he might become a candidate against "a ticket headed by Arthur Goldberg or any slate of left-liberal candi dates." Samuels said such an event would force him to review his position to prevent what happened in the New York City race from recurring in the statewide contest. Sorenson Leads for Senate The leading candidate for senator is Theodore Sorenson, a former Kennedy aid. His opponents are Paul O'Dwyer, former city councilman; Rep resentatives Richard L. Ott- inger of Westchester and Richard McCarthy of Buffalo; and Morris Abram, former president of Brandeis univer sity. A leading candidate for the lieutenant governorship is state Sen. Basil Paterson of Harlem. White candidates have been reluctant to enter the field for fear of being labeled "anti black." Black leaders in New York have threatened to bolt the Democrats if Paterson is not designated. The winners of the committee designation will appear on the ballot as "regular Democrats." Other candidates will qualify for ballot listing if they obtain 25 per cent of the committee votes. Those falling below that figure can still get on the ballot by collecting 10,000 signatures of enrolled Democrats from 47 of the state's 62 counties. ,m-y--m i f s w t 11 . , -,, ' .::" A ' .-. -'' " .

Boston, March 31 (UPD A Brooklyn, N. Y., man who alleg edly shot his common-law wife to death and then set a fire that claimed four lives early Easter Sunday was captured today in a subway station here by three policemen. A 13-state alarm had been issued for Eugene Everet, 32, a plumber, after the deaths in Brooklyn Sunday of Mrs. Joyce Taylor, 29, two of her children, and another mother and child. Everet was held for New York police, who were reported en route to Boston to question him. Explorer 1, America8 1st Satellite, Burns Up Colorado Springs, March 31 (UPD Explorer 1, the stovepipe shaped satellite that launched America into the space age on Jan. 31, 1958, died today over the South Pacific, the oldest man-made object in space. The space defense center at North American air defense command headquarters said the 30.8-pound, 80-inch satellite plunged into the earth's atmosphere and burned up at 4:57 a. m. Chicago time. THB PLYWOOD BATTLEGROUND In the Chicno Tribune Magazine April S, writer Rldoely Hunt tells about i group of Chicago men who meet every week to play with toy loldiers. Suggestion for the President AFTER READING TOO many stories about the qualifications or lack of qualifications of -Judge G. Harrold Carswell for the United States Supreme court, for which he has been proposed by President Richard Nixon, it strikes me that- what any President needs in the case of such a vacancy is a set of competent scouts. Is Judge Carswell a racist, at least a kind of residual racist, or not? Has he behaved well toward attorneys of all kinds who appeared before him? Has he been a competent judge in his own league so that a step up to the big time seems justified? The answer is that no one seems to know for certain, and at this moment there is perhaps an even chance that Mr. Nixon will find it necessary to propose yet a third nominee for this all-important position. For as it now stands, with the Senate almost evenly divided in its opinions of the nominee, with Sen. Roman Hruska IR., Neb. in the curious position of having urged mediocrity as a possibly desirable attribute for Supreme court justices during a speech supposedly bolstering the Carswell nomination, and with widely divergent opinions on Carswell from attorneys, judges, and law school professors from across the nation, the whole affair has come close to developing into a bad comedy skit. A charge this week that the justice department had used undue influence to persuade a black government lawyer to write a letter favorable to Carswell, followed by denial of pressure, has done nothing to clarify matters. WHILE IT UNDOUBTEDLY would be embarrassing for President Nixon to withdraw his nomination at this juncture, especially in view of the defeat of his earlier nominee, Judge Clement Haynsworth, this might be the best move for all concerned. It is generally agreed that there are seven or eight southern judges who are better qualified for the job than Carswell. It also is agreed that President Nixon is determined that the next Supreme court justice must come from that geographical urea. Would it not be feasible, then, for the President to confer privately with a few of the senators who voted against Haynsworth, and plan to vote against Carswell, to discover which of these qualified judges would be acceptable, in case the Carswell nomination is called back or defeated? AND WITH THE example of the Haynsworth-Carswell controversies in mind, why do not Presidents, in the case of future vacancies on the high court, name a committee of thoroly respected jurists and attorneys from both sides of the political fence to submit for their consideration the names of qualified judges, the number depending on how many can be found, as well as committee reaction to what ever judges the President may propose? This perhaps would insure not only a better man for the job, but also confirmation by the Senate of that man. It also would permit the President to get on with, better things, once the nomination had been announced, than twisting arms or trading favors to get votes for some ill-chosen candidate. Finally, it would mean less of the unseemly bickering, both in senatorial and judicial circles, which has marked the two most recent appointments. PRINTERS PUT PRESSURE ON TIMES IN N. Y. IN. Y. Tlmei-Chicage Tribune Service New York, March 31 The International Typographical union began to apply strong economic pressures on the New York Times today by holding chapel meetings on each shift and interrupting production in the newspaper's composing room. The printers took this form of job action rather than a strike after their contract and those of nine other newspaper unions expired without new agreements. The other newspapers involved in the negotiations are the Daily News, the New York Post, and the Long Island Press, but Bertram A. Powers, president of local 6, said that tne printers union was center ing its drive for "substantial" wage increases and other contract improvements on the Times. Talks Are Resumed Negotiators for the Drinters and the publishers met hrieflv this afternoon and thpn m. sumed bargaining talks at an undisclosed location tonight as mey sougnt to settle a number of unresolved noneconomic is sues and prepare the way for hard bargaining on money. The publishers made an int. tial offer yesterday of 16.5 per " in pay increases over the term of a proposed three-year contract. The offer, madff-avail-able to all 10 of the unions representing about 13,000 employes on the four newspapers, was rejected by the unions but non took strike action. Negotiations continued tndav between the publishers and two other craft groups, the mailers and the machinists. Talks involving other unions were scheduled to be resumed to. morrow or Thursday. 3 Act as Mediators Bargaining between the print ers and the publishers was under the direction of Theodore VV.' Kheel, the lawyer who is serving as mediator in the dispute. Assisting him in the over all mediation of the newspaper dispute are Vincent D. McDon nell, chairman of the state mediation board, and Frank H. Brown, regional director "of the federal mediation and concilia tion service. Powers left the negotiations late this afternoon to hold a chapel meeting in the compos ing room of the Times. The hour-long meeting stopped all production in the composing room as preparations were be ing made for the newspaper's first edition. The meeting, the sixth during the day, brought the non-productive time during the chapel sessions to about seven hours Expects Something Missing Powers told the printers that he did not want the meetings to prevent publication of any edition but he said he expected something would be missing and that it would probably be advertising. Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, pub lisher of the Times, said in a statement that Powers' decision to call "illegal meetings" of his union members was bound to complicate what had already proved to be a difficult negotiation. "The Times will continue to-publish as long as it can maintain acceptable standards of news coverage and advertising representation," Sulzberger said. "Both elements are vital. We will have to reconsider con tinuance of publication if our standards become endangered." Post Guild OK's Strike Meanwhile, members of the Post's unit of the newspaper guild voted 123 to 2 tonight to reaffirm a "no-contract, no-work" policy originally adopted on Jan. 19 The resolution also called upon the local officers of the Newspaper Guild of New York to sanction their policy. Altho the resolution appeared to authorize a strike, Miss Gerry Passarella, chairman of the unit, said there was no plan for a strike at the Post immediately. Thomas J. Murphy, executive vice president of the New York guild, said that a strike at the Post was "almost a certainty" within the next two weeks. !': ..""Vl'i'K ff !

This despite the near certainty that when his misadventures reached the screen Michael Caine or Richard Burton would portray his latest case of the cold war blahs. James Munro's John Craig is back with "The Innocent Bystanders" Knopf, $5.95. He first appeared in "The Man Who Sold Death" and has been on his way out of town and the killing game ever since via the best seller lists. "The Money that Money Can't Buy," etc.. Craig's disenchantment is about as complete as you can expect to find, this side of the embalmer's, until someone gets his dander up; then the juices begin to flow under the scarred hide. Devoted readers will know when and where he got every one of those service stripes. He shows up for target practice and a few sessions on the dojo mat to sharpen up knuckles, toes, and the cutting edge of his hand he's a Seventh Dan black belt, with only five men outside Japan who can really rough him up. Fortunately, the action keeps well to the west of the Land of the Rising Sun. In New York, London, Turkey, and Cyprus, Craig proves that selling death is like roller skating as he outwits the Soviet KGB, the CIA, and a brace of lethal youngsters trained by Britain's Department K. The fat and implacable Loomis, as chief, is still overeating and doubledealing. Munro who is British novelist James Mitchell handles the what-passes-for-love scenes with pleasing dispatch and considerable grace. "The Innocent Bystanders" is not a new tune, but it's whistled as expertly as ever. "The Stately Home Murder," by Catherine Arid Crime Club, $4.50, is an old fashioned romp of murder in the upper classes and in the dungeon of an open-to-tourists castle. A librarian and would-be family biographer dies with his boots on, so to say, at the peak of his research. But his corpse is soon wearing armor with tilt pieces, circa 1595, in the weapons room, a tour stop. Butlers, vicars, dotty old aunts, undergardeners, and earls are afoot to keep the puzzle moving as fast and as bright as a pinball machine. The background is packed with antiquarian tidbits: An orrery may be made of inlaid wood, and you can spin it. But it's not a globe, "it's about space." as the lady guide states crisply and without challenge from a skeptical tourist. The Random House dictionary goes even further: It was named after Charles Boyle, earl of Orrery, 1676-1731, for whom it was first made. A story packed with delights, substantial or fleeting. "The Laying on of Hands," by Arthur Arent Little, Brown, $5.95, combines spy stuff with show business. The author, who is a playwright and a writer for television, radio, and films, knows first-name-dropping well. Action deals with the hunting down of a nazi doctor and moves from New York to Spain and Australia. Constant readers of espionage fiction must know their way around all the back alleys and Hiltons of the world by now. UUGSIIOLM Scnndinarian Rettnurant tvn. tit. Mm.-. Matt. Tint, Ttiiiti., SaL Sun.
