10B -- August 3,1975 * Sundav / Mention of Nixon Rattles Republicans %¥S^^ WASHINGTON - "Some people worry, .·jvpose w wants to come u the comen- ·:-.'f/" They hope he doesn't want to speak .,;· anything." ":: was a conservative Republican cvn- u:i.-sman inadvertantly summing up his kirty's view these days of the exiled Rii hard M Nixon After a year this is what it has come to: the president who opened i tie door to China and gave the Republican !;jr'.y its greatest triumph is. more than jnv thing else a lingering embarrassment F.ven President Ford who spent so ::; of his own political coin when he v.f'joned Nixon 11 months ago. reflects ;i:e partv's discomfort. The mention 01 Nixon's name makes him visibly uneasy He always seems to shifI his feet aud dear his throat and shrug inside his suit Ques- tons are turned away. When, for example, a reporter asked Ford last spring whether Nixon might not emerge once again as "a leader" of his party. Ford replied: "1 think any comment that 1 make in that regard is inappropriate at the present time. Mr. Nixon is still recovering from a very serious illness and for me to speculate down the road: I think, is unwise at this time." Today. Nixon's health seems to be far less a problem, but Republican political rehabilitation as "inappropriate" as it was when he resigned just a year ago Saturday. Although Nixon is. most of the time, out of sight, be is like the brother-in-law who has taken to strong drink and loose women. He has been cast out of the family circle but is irrevocably bound to it. and they really wish he would change his name. The exiled leader surfaces from time to time. There are pictures in the newspapers of him walking on the beach and talking to tourists at San Clemente. There are reports that he has been playing golf or taking a ride on the freeways with Bebe Rebozo or going out to a dinner party. But even the politicians most closely identified with his disgrace a year ago find that the voters have turned to other things and other people. "The mention of his name has practical- ly died out." says Rep Tom Railsback, the Illinois Republican whose vote against Nixon was so critical in the House Judiciary Committee proceedings a year ago "Even his greatest defenders, they'll come up to me and say '1 sure was mad at you but it looks like you were right.' It's all in the past now. Everybody's forgotten him." Another Republican who voted for impeachment a year ago. Rep. William Coh- en of Maine, has the same experience. "There's very little talk about it anymore." he says. '"It's the same old thing in politics. The" public can be plenty fickle and they've forgotten all about him." But if the voters are ready to forget, the politicians who know him best are not convinced that Nixon is ready to do so. Instead, they detect repeated signals from San Clemente that Richard Nixon. th,e ultimate survivor of American politics today, is determined to rehabilitate himself 10 Persons Die MANILA tAP» - At least 10 persoas. most of them children, dkd and 24 others were hospitalized in Cebu City after eatiflg dried fish, the official Philippine news agency reported Saturday. _Our 15th Yecr With The, Same Quality Backyard The A ner CM Afford Model Pools oa C«oflee LM* tf tob, Oanktb fc Acceutric* LACY'S mUdera Swimming Pools 933 Woodhwn Dr., Charleston Pbooe:744-2m 'Wallace Country' May Be Weakening Gov. George Wallace His "Country" ;\. V. Times Service DESTIN. Fla. - Most of the Florida panhandle is piney-woods country -- flat, rural, poor and inward-looking, with little county seats that haven't grown much in the last 50 years. In 19(58 and 11)72. this was Wallace country par excellence. The visitor traveling across the panhandle this summer f i n d s ample evidence t h a t , despite subtly changing racial mores, despite his paralysis. Gov. George C. Wallace of Alabama remains a powerful presence here. He seems certain to carry the region in next spring's Florida presidential p r i m a r y if he enters it as expected. But there are also some tentative indications that Wallace may have slipped a little. And if the Alabama firebrand looks less strong here, there is a real possibility that hw base in the more cosmopolitan areas of the South may be even weaker. Wallace's past performance in some oi the panhandle counties has been awesome. In Holmes County, for example, he took 87.2 per cent of the votes in 1968 against Richard M. Nixon and Hubert H. Humphrey: in the 1972 primary, with six candidates on the ballot, he took 86.4 per cent. He got 2.648 votes, while Henry M. Jackson, his nearest competitor, got 187. Jack Faircloth. the county clerk, said he thought Wallace would do just as well next year, that just about everyone he knows will be for Wallace "tooth and toenail." Why? "Because he stands for Middle America, and that counts here." Faircloth said people in northwest Florida were tired of paying for crime and lor welfare. He volunteered the opinion that sterilization of felons and welfare recipients would solve the problem. FURNITURE South Charleston DRASTIC REDUCTIONS · ONE GROUP OF LIVING ROOM CHAIRS.

SMITH, the anti-Wallace editor of the Holmes County Advertiser, said the governor's support cut across social and economic lines: the haves like him as much as the have-nots." Smith said.
