ItA -- August 10*1975 SMI Moore Received Illegal '72 Donation, Records Reveal From Page One ment. he issued a news statement through his press aide in Charleston, Norman Yost. The statement said: "I have been advised of and acknowledged the political support given to me by Ashland Oil Co. in my gubernatorial campaigns. "My first knowledge of this support came to me several weeks ago. when I received the letter advising that a financial examination of the company had determined that certain donations made to m\- political campaign, as well as to the political campaigns of others, had actually come from company funds. "I was further advised in that letter that there was no way possible that 1 could have known or realized that those donations had come from company funds and not from various individuals. This was the first knowledge I had of the character of those donations. "Like all donations received by me in that campaign, these funds were passed along to various committees for their use. Had I, or any of my campaign workers three and a half years ago, known of the character of those donations, they would have been discouraged. · "As it was, those donations, having been freely and voluntarily given entirely with- · out solication by me or anyone involved in '. my campaign, were welcomed and were used." From Page One Accidents J.C. Dillon Hopes It's Not True A reporter asked Yost Saturday if Moore would explain which campaign committee he gave the money to, and explain whether the money is listed in campaign reports. »· YOST REBUFFED the questions, saying he probably wouldn't be in telephone contact again with the Governor Saturday. Yost refused to reveal where Moore was staying in the Eastern Panhandle. Yost said he doesn't know who delivered the Ashland money in 1968 and 1972, and doesn't know whether it came as envelopes of cash. John L. Thomas of Charleston, who was treasurer of the Moore for Governor Committee in 1972, said Saturday- "During the campaign, I had no knowledge of any contribution. I had no contact myself from any people from Ashland Oil." State Sen. Warren McGraw, D-Wyoming, who previously had asked Secretary of State McCartney to find out if Ashland sent any illegal campaign donations into West Virginia, remarked Saturday that McCartney "apparently didn't do anything" about his request. McGraw also told newsmen Saturday that he wonders whether the Ashland donation might possibly be covered by the state's bribery law. Further, he noted that campaign finance statements must be filed under oath, "which raises some question of whether the filing of a false affidavit carries a penalty aside from the election law," McGraw pointed out that it's only a misdemeanor under state election laws to fail to report a donation, and the penalty is enforceable only within one year after the filing. The senator speculated that federal agents might enter the case because "if Ashland Oil made a contribution to a West Virginia politician, it carries an aspect of interstate criminal activity." Del. Martha Wehrle, D-Kanawha, commented Saturday: "It's unbelievable that Gov. Moore didn't report these donations. From his statement, it looks like he's stonewalling it." from Page One From Page One Kim Youth Del. Martha Wehrle Moore's "Stonewalling" STATE DEMOCRATIC CHAIRMAN J C. Dillon of Hinton remarked. "I'm very surprised. I had no inkling of anything like that. I regret it very much. As far as knowing what to do about it. 1 don't know. It's in the hands, I guess, of the judicial branch of our government. "I'm sorry that it happened. We have enough problems in West Virginia and the nation. I know it's going to make the public lose confidence. I wish it weren't true." Frank Jollif fe, assistant U.S. attorney in Charleston, said only "no comment." Gov. Moore's brother, Harry, works in Ashland's public relations department and was registered as an Ashland lobbyist during the regular 1975 session of the West Virginia State Legislature. This has been the United States' policy toward the periodic efforts by the North Koreans to begin a dialogue on Korean issues over the head of the South Koreans. Washington has always been careful not to go further than South Korea in dealing with North Korea so as not to lend weight to the North Korean allegation that the Seoul government is a "puppet" of the United States. The Japanese are especially eager to see tensions there reduced since they are likely to be involved if a new war breaks out. In that case, the United States would clearly need to use its bases in Japan to support its combat forces in Korea. Kim made his wishes known last month in Pyongyang to Tokuma Utsunomiya, a member of the governing Liberal-Democratic party who has advocated closer Japanese relations with North Korea and China. But members of another delegation of conservative legislators have confirmed and elaborated on Kim's views. The Communist leader's proposals were passed on to Miki, who conveyed them to Ford when they met in Washington this past week. AT THAT TIME the assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, Philip C. Habib, told reporters in Washington that Miki told Ford "what had been said to a Japanese Diet (parliament) member by the North Koreans but he did not bring any messages." According to those who saw Kim in Pyongyang, that was technically correct, since Kim made no explicit request that a "message" be carried to Ford. But it was clearly understood by those who met with him that Kim wished Ford to be informed of his ideals. cades out of hijacked cars and trucks, blocking the Belfast-Dublin road, police reported. Altogether, police estimated there were nearly 2.000 demonstrators at the anti-internment rallies and marches in Belfast, Newry, Londonderry, Lurganand Dungannon. In the Irish Republic's Portlaoise Prison, IRA inmates reportedly went on a 24-hour hunger strike in sympathy with the Ulster protesters. The demonstrations came on the fourth anniversary of the introduction of internment, the British antiterrorist policy of imprisoning suspected terrorists without trial It was introduced Aug. 9,1971, to curb escalating violence at a time when security forces found it difficult to get witnesses to testify against terrorist suspects in court because of fear of reprisals. Britain's administrator for the province, Merlyn Rees. has released 346 internees since December, however, and has pledged to release them all by Christmas.

Australia--ifli-- Nine doctors successfully separated Siamese twin girls in a 3V2-hour operation Saturday at Melbourne's Royal Children's Hospital. Doctors said the babies were under intensive care and had a 50-50 chance of survival. The girls were born Friday night. The identity of the parents was kept secret. "This is one that gets written up in world medical journals." said Dr. Peter Jones, the surgeon who led a team of 25 nurses, anaesthetists and surgeons. The babies, wighting 6.38 pounds each, were three weeks premature, doctors said. They were joined from the breast bone to the navel. Doctors said they were frail and the next few days would be crucial. Jones said that in most Siamese births the babies either are stillborn, or die be fore they get to the operating table. It was the f i r s t recorded birth o Siamese twins in Austrailia in 25 years.
