SIM JOY GauettM *il Summer Training The West Virginia National Guard's annual summer training program, which began July 12 and ended Saturday, included work on projects at Krodel Park near Point Pleasant and at the Jackson County Fairgrounds near Cottageville. A moat (upper left) is being constructed around Fort Randolph at Krodel Park, and a peninsula is being built intothe lake. The "no fishing" sign (upper right) appears a bit superfluous, because the lake was completely drained and renovated. The work at Krodel Park was done by Company D, 119th Engineer Co.. of Clarksburg. A guard spokesman said that two or three days' work remains to be done there, and that it will probably be done on weekend drills. Guardsmen (lower left) from Company D 1092nd Engineer Battalion, St. Albans, constructed a pavilion at the Jackson County Fairground. Other guard units participated in various community projects around tye state.

In the past week. Ford has let stand his campaign manager's latest attack on Vice President Nelson A. Rockefeller, sided with Southerners on extension of the Voting Rights Act and declared himself in tune with George C. Wallace on domestic policy. In an echo of the "Southern strategy" followed by former President Richard M. Nixon. Ford is takine positions that seem likely to appeal to Republicans who might be inclined to favor Ronald Reagan's conservative challenge. Some political observers have speculated that Ford hopes to demonstrate such strength among them that he can prevent Reagan from even entering the race. Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott said Saturday that such speculation "is a disservice'' to Ford and said "there should be no slightest clouding of the plain fact that President Ford is on record as favoring the renomination of the present ticket." * * * HOWEVER, THE strategy is creating concern among party moderates who fear Ford's efforts to woo the conservatives may be harmful later, when he will need a broad national base to win the 1976 general election. "I hope that the President is not. in the process of being concerned about his right flank, losing sight of his center." Sen. Jacob K. Javits. R-N.Y.. said in an interview. He made the comment when asked about statements by Howard H. "Bo" Cai- laway. Ford's campaign manager, that Rockefeller was the "No. 1 problem" in winning Southern support for the President and suggesting the GOP might fare better with a younger vice-presidential candidate. Presidential Press Secretary Ron N sen refusfd repeated opportunities day to dissociate the President from the remarks, insisting that there was ho difference between Ford's and Callaway's statements. While this was going on, Ford became .involved in a controversy when he endorsed extension of the Voting Rights Act, now aimed primarily at stopping discrimination against Southern blacks, to cover all states in the country. While Ford's position was totally consistent with his stance while a House member, it became public at a time when Southern senators were seeking to revise the voting rights bill along those lines. * * * FOR A TIME, it appeared Ford's statement might help them. But Scott checked with the White House and got assurance Ford's No. 1 priority was passage of the bill. Possible GOP support evaporated and the Southerners lost. Sen. Ernest F. Hollings, D-S.C., said he expects Ford to tell the South as he seeks a full presidential term "how he stood for the equal application of the law.'' But he added that Ford took " a devious stand/' because with full presidential backing the amendment would have attained a majority. Ford's comment on Wallace came during an interview withTheNew York Times when he was asked whether there is a dime's worth of difference between his philosophy and that of the Alabama governor. "I think we have a good many similarities" Ford said, adding that they have differences on foreign policy. The closer Ford is identified with Wallace in the South, the greater chance he would have to matching Nixon's 1972 sweep through the 11 states of the old Confederacy, as well as of winning backing there in his bid for the GOP nominal!^. 79.90 U4007 CtEANER 89.95 1031 TOOLS 14.95 REG. 104.90 SAVE 25.00!
