- H . j1 H , Boston Sunday Globe April 12, 1970 . 1. , Boston rallies will protest war and violent dissent 6 Wake Up America' invites Bob-Hope 100,000 may oppose Vietnam A parade and rally to protest the use of violence as a means of political dissent will be held in downtown 'Boston two weeks from today. Called "Wake Up America," the demonstration will begin at 2:30 p.m. with a march from Boston Common to City Hall Plaza, where a rally will be held. Comedian Bob Hope has been invited to attend. He wiUbe presented, with a Paul .Revere bowl for serving as honorary national chairman. v Arthur Stivaletta, of Dedham, chairman of the Wake Up America Committee, Inc., said: "Things are happening throughout our land which greatly disturb us, things which we feel must also be of real concern to every citizen." The rally has no ties with any political group, Stivaletta said. "All Americans, young and old, liberal and conservative, lose by violence," he said. "Violence and destruction are the seeds of anarchy and tyr anny, whether it be the tyranny of the extreme right or the extreme left. "We believe the time has come for Americans to unite in one cause a rejection, total and complete, of violence as a means of political dissent." Cochairman is former Navy football star Joe Bellino. Jim Nance of the Boston Patriots and Al Capp, cartoonist, are also ' scheduled to appear. Rt. Rev. George Kerr, chaplain for the House of Representatives, will give the invocation. The Dedham Board of Selectmen and the Boston City Council have passed resolutions supporting the rally. . "All of us, young and old, liberal and conservative, have for too long been silent on the issue of violence," Stivaletta said. "We have been afraid of labels or slogans that would brand us either as conservatives or traitors to. a liberal cause. Such sloganeering does all of us find once again our ability a grave misjustice. AMERICA, Page 61 By Michael Kenney Globe Staff Six months after 100,000 people massed on Boston Common shouting for peace in Vietnam "Now!" the anti-war movement will try it again this Wednesday. The 4 p.m. rally on the Common is to be the centerpiece for anti-war activity more intensive than at any time since the October Moratorium and the November Mobilization. The April 15 rally has been organized jointly by the moderate Massachusetts Moratorium Commit tee and the more radical Student Mobilization Committee. Spokesmen for both groups expect at least 50,000 persons at the rally and confidently hope for at least twice that number. The new twist will be an emphasis on tax resistance activities inspired partly by the coincidence of April 15 being income tax filing day and partly by the growing importance of tax protesters in the anti-war movement. There will be at least five tax resistance activi ties including a rally at 1 p.m. Wednesday at the Government Center where the local Internal Revenue Service office is located. Several Harvard and MIT professors are expected to publicly refuse payment of part of their taxes at this rally. Both the Moratorium and Mobilization organizers see the April 15 rally as' a springboard for a, new round of anti-war activities. According to Ray Dou-gan of the Moratorium, the emphasis of this suburban-oriented group will be on the campaigns in at least four congressional districts where peace candidates are expected to be on the ballot. "Coming out again iS necessary,'' Dougan said, "because we just have to keep the pressure on. We are still calling for immediate total withdrawal and we will show there is upport for candidates who take this position." Peace candidates running include: Rev. Robert Drinan, S.J., seeking the Democratic nomination in MORATORIUM, Page 61 New control tower will ease Norwood's load CA NQRWOOD-TrafTic-load statistics at Norwood Airport, one of . the busiest of its size in. the country, may . reflect nearly 600,000 takeoffs and landings this year. Everyone around the airport has had his fingers crossed because the figures have been climbing steadily ; but, beginning Wednesday, the pressure will be off. X :: - W.. ; A , long-needed traffic-control tower will go into - operation, thanks to a rare instance of Federal-stale cooperation m an air safety project. ' Arnold Stymest, airport manager, said the Norwood field has been eligible for years for a control tower under ' load criteria set by the Federal Aviation Administration. "The thing we were most afraid would happen just happened in February," Stymest said. "Two small planes collided but, fortunately, nobody was injured. 'This was a decisive factor in the decision by the FAA in Washington to approve a cooperative proposal made by the State Aeronautics Commission." , Normally, the FAA is responsible for the erection of air control towers where needed, and for the supply of personnel. ' Despite the obvious need at Norwood, this was out of the question because of a lack of federal funds. So the state proposed to spend $33,000 out of pilot-plane registration fee revenue to purchase a portable tower if the FAA would agree to supply traffic controllers. Funding problems were still a factor, but they were solved when the FAA decided it would be possible to man the tower by a redistribution of personnel. . The state had suggested that controllers at the Nantucket and Hyannis airports, both of which log light .traffic loads in Winter, could be reassigned to Norwood.

Botwright Globe Staff . For almost 10 minutes after a hit and run driver crashed head-on into her car on a Boston expressway ramp, Mrs. Virginia Chandler sat alone and injured in her wrecked station wagon while more than 20 cars passed by without stopping. Bleeding and terrified, the 31-year-old Marble-head nUrse leaned on her horn, blasting a distress ; signal' Finally,, a taxi : -th: V':l'i ' driver and a pedestrian came to her aid. "I still can't believe it," Mrs. Chandler said yesterday, wincing from the pain of face and mouth injuries that required seven stitches. . "To think that all those people the man who hit me and those who drove by me without stopping just didn't want to get involved." . The accident happened at about 11:45 p.m., on the heavily trav eled down ramp at Charles st. circle. Mrs. Chandler, wife of a Lynn radio announcer and mother of two young children, was driving to her job in the operating room of nearby Massachusetts General Hospital. As she rounded a curve, she was suddenly blinded by the lights of a car roaring in the wrong direction toward her. "I jammed on my brakes, but he was coming so fast I had no time to avoid him," she said. "He hit me and my face slammed into the steering wheel. "By the time I lifted my head, he w-as backing down ' the ramp. He backed onto Charles , st. and took off toward Lev- erett circle, I think," Many people must have either seen the accident or the callous escape of the hit and run driver. The impact of the collision could be heard for a block. And the hit and run driver, in a dark green, late model car, snarled traffic as he backed down the ramp into Charles st. His hood was obviously buckled and his radiator was steaming profusely. . Eyewitnesses included half a dozen passengers .waiting . for a Cambridge train . in the Charles st. MBTA station But only-one man was concerned enough to forget about catching his train and go to Mrs. Chandler's assistance. HIT-RUN, Page 61 MRS. CHANDLER Busy Andover IRS Center gets ready for Apr, 15 IN ANDOVER GETS BUSIER AS TAX INTERNAL REVENUE OFFICE DEADLINE NEARS (Joe Runci photo) By Diana Crawford Globe Staff ANDOVER If yen filed a tax return over a week ago, chances are the Internal Revenue Service Center now has your vital financial statistics on six punch cards here and on' one and one-half inches of magnetic computer tape in Martinsburg, W. Va. As the Apr. 15 deadline for tax returns approaches, the volume of work taking place at the North Atlantic Region IRS Center is staggering to the imagination, and the system of processing forms from New York and the six New England states has all the checks and double checks of a moon launch. The largest of seven regional centers, a spokes man for the 1R5 called it the "largest data proc- center in the essing world." Some 5000 workers, 2700 above the normal level, are processing more than 130,000 forms daily in three shifts around the clock, seven days a week. The single story building covers six football fields in area. Most of the work space is open in a great expanse of keypunch machines and desks separated only by coat racks and aisles filled with wire baskets or gray carts stacked with manila files. Last year, the Andover Center processed 12.5 million individual returns and gave out nearly eight million . refunds totalling over $1.5 billion. Eleven percent of the forms had some, sort of error, the most common being failure to compute surcharge, APRIL 15, Tage 62 - By Carol Liston Globe Staff With the approach of the June state conventions for Democrats and Republicans, four men two from each party appear to be the front-runners for their party's nomination for lieutenant governor. The Republicans will choose between Rep. Martin Linsky of Brookline, the announced choice of the governor, and Sen. John Quinlan of Norwood, a major party organizer for several years. Both their candidacies became official last week. The Democrats, as it stands now, will choose between Rep. Michael Dukakis of Brookline and Sen. Beryl Cohen of Brookline. Neither man has official backing from any of the Democratic leaders in the state. Dukakis is the only one of the four who has not announced publicly. He plans to make his campaign official Apr. 23. Linsky's candidacy came as the biggest political surprise lately. It was virtu- ally announced by Gov. Sargent. No one outside the governor's closest advisers anticipated either Linsky's announcement, or the governor's endorsement. While he was campaigning for the governor's backing over the past year, Linsky's efforts ' were little noticed. Linsky, 29, is a graduate of Brookline High School, Williams College and Harvard Law School. In his student years he worked several Republican campaigns. He was a legislative and research assistant to Elliot Richardson, when he was lieutenant governor in 1965 and 1966. He served as an assistant attorney general in 1967, when Richardson was attorney general. Running in a special election in 1967, Linsky won his House seat, to which he was re-elected in 1968. His special interest in the House has been housing and welfare legislation, and proposals to ease the state's birth control and abortion laws. He is regarded as part of the liberal wing of the state's Republican Party. He has worked closely with a small band of liberal Republicans in the House. He is on the na- tiona! governing board of the Ripon Society, a Republican group with quite liberal attitudes. Linsky is married. He and his wife have a son and daughter. Linsky is Jewish. Quinlan was educated at Dover schools, Sacred Heart High School in Newton and graduated from Harvard in 1957. Before entering the political world full-time.

In 1960 he became a special assistant to U.S. Sen. Lcverett Sal-tonstall for two years. He worked here and in Washington for Saltonstall. He organized young people to work for Saltonstall. From 1963 to 1964, Quinlan was executive director of the Council for Constitutional Reform in Massachusetts. He was elected to the state Senate and has served there since 1965. In the Fall of 1963, Quinlan became state chairman for the Nixon-Aanew campaign. Although he was already known in Republican circles, this post built his reputation and broadened his GOP contacts. Quinlan has been the major organizer for a limited Constitutional Contention, to bring reforms like the House cut, to state government. - LT. GOVERNOR, Page 62
