3B -June 9,1974 Sunday Gazette-Mail Charleston, West Virginia Lebanon Frees Last Two Israeli POWs The Associated Press Lebanon released the last two Israeli prisoners held by an Arab state Saturday, the Israelis said they killed four terrorists infiltrating from Lebanon, and the guerrillas called for increased commando attacks against the Jewish state. Kidnap Suspects Two Philadelphia men, Wallace J. Beckette Jr., 21, (left) and Carl L. Bradford, 19, were arraigned Friday in Philadelphia on 11 charges each stemming from the Thursday kidnaping of Mrs. Jack Friedland, wife of the president and chief executive of Food Fair Inc. a supermarket chain. (AP Wirephoto) Maine Voters Face Large Election Field The Associated Frets Maine voters will select from the largest field of candidates for governor since 1932 in a primary election Tuesday, where voters in parts of two other states pick candidates for Congress. Four Republicans and six Democrats are running for the gubernatorial nominations in Maine. Only three of the candidates are considered long shots. In the only other balloting scheduled in the nation Tuesday, voters in two Virginia districts will pick Democratic candidates for Congress, and a runoff congressional primary will be held in Arkansas. Maine GOP leaders say publicly that Watergate will not have any bearing on the state election, but it is the reason they will be paying special attention to the vote for freshman GOP Rep. William S. Cohen, unopposed for renomi- nation to his 2nd District seat. Cohen, a member of the House Judicicary Committee, cast the deciding vote when the committee rejected, 22-20, the written transcripts of taped presidential conversations that President Nixon had . submitted for the committee's impeachment inquiry. Cohen's November opponent will be the winner of the Democratic race between Markham L. Gartley, who spent four years as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam, and Stewart Smith, a Yale-educated farmer-businessman who has served one term in the Maine Legislature. * * * IN THE STATE'S other congressional district, Rep. Peter Kyrps is lodged in a personally bitter battle with a former staffer in his Portland field office, Jadine O'Brien, for the Democratic nomination. The winner will face Republican state Rep. David F. Emery, 25, a two-term state representative. The gubernatorial race is considered wide open because state law prevents Democratic incumbent Kenneth L. Curtis from seeking a third term. On the Republican side, liberal Harrison Richardson and conservative James Erwin are considered to be neck-and- neck, with Wakine Tanous closing rapidly. Erwin lost to Curtis in 1970 by less than 900 votes. Democratic candidates include state senators Joseph Brennari and Peter Kelley, former U.S. Atty. Lloyd LaFountain, and National Democratic Cbmmitteeman George Mitchell. In Arkansas, a runoff is set between two men who led the ticket but failed to get a majority in a four-man contest May 28 for the Democratic nomination in the 3rd Congressional District. Bill Clinton, 27, of Fayetteville, a University of Arkansas law professor on leave of absence to make the campaign, was the front-runner. He will face state Sen. W. E. "Gene" Rainwater, 49, of Greenwood, an owner of a trucking company. * * * THE WINNER will face Republican John Paul Hammerschmidt of Harrison, in November. Hammerschmidt, 51, is serving his fourth term in the 21-county district encompassing northwest Arkansas. The state has four seats in the U.S. House. In Virginia, four candidates seek the Democratic nomination for the 10th District seat. They are Joseph L. Fisher, vice chairman of the Arlington County Board; Rufus C. Phillips and Martha V. Pennino, both members of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, and Dennis Gregg, a young Arlington resident who made history in April by persuading the Virginia Board of Elections to permit his name to be placed on the ballot without payment of the $850 filing fee because he was too poor. The winner will oppose Republican Rep. Joel T. Broy- h i l l , dean of Virginia's 10-member congressional delegation. In the 8th District, there are three Democratic candidates: Frank E. Mann of Alexandria, a member of the Virginia House of Delegates; Herbert E. Harris II of Fairfax; and Richard Saslaw of Fairfax. The race seems to be between Mann and Harris. The 8th The 8t District nominee faces Republican Rep. Stanford L. Parris in November. All other congressional nominees of both parties either have been or will be nom- · inated in conventions. All incumbents have announced for re-election. Harvard Awarded Funds (C) New York Times Service CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - A generation after the Krupp industrial empire helped to build the Nazi war arsenal, the Krupp Foundation of West Germany, which now owns the Krupp Co., has given $2 million to Harvard University as a gesture toward "the strength of relations between America and Europe." Although the amount is not unusually high by American philanthropic standards, it was called a landmark by scholars who specialize in West European studies. Half the income from the gift, which was announced Saturday by Harvard, is to be used to establish a new chair in European studies for a senior professor. The rest will support seven or. eight graduate students, for whom fellowship money has become scarce in recent years. The Krupp donation is the latest in a series of contributions from foreign sources to American institutions. Two years ago, the'West German government established the $30 million German Marshall Fund of the United States. The first $1 million of the Krupp money was handed to Derek C. Bok, president of Harvard, on Thursday by Berthold Beitz, the 60-year- old German industrialist who is chairman of both the Krupp Foundation and the Krupp companies, which make steel, trucks and other products. . * * * IN AN interview before his meeting with Bok, Beitz said that the gift had been generated by a feeling that interest in European-American cooperation was sagging. At the same time, the United States and Saudi Arabia agreed to expand cooperation on several economic fronts and to strengthen their military ties. "We consider this a milestone in our relations with Saudi Arabia and with the Arab countries in general," Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger said at a formal signing ceremony in Washington. The Israeli chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Mordechai Gur, greeted the two returned prisoners, both pilots, as they were driven across the Israeli border. "This is an end of a chapter in our history," he said. Israel completed a prisoner exchange deal with Syria Thursday under its U.S.-negotiated disengagement with the Damascus regime. The release of the pilots followed the return by Israel on Friday of 12 Lebanese prisoners held since the Israeli re- taliatory raid into Lebanon after the Qiryat Shmonah terrorist attack last April. The three Arabs who killed 18 Israelis in that raid also had crossed from Lebanon. The Israeli command said the latest guerrilla incursion took place near Adamit, about six miles from the Mediterra- nean just south of the Lebanese border. No Israeli casualties were reported. The Israelis found rifles and ammunition, and leaflets of the general command of Assi- fa, the combat wing of the Al Fatah guerrilla organization, a communique said.
