4 The SUN, Flagstaff, Arizona, Wednesday, April 25, 1984 Another Top Selling Book? In light of his long military career and service in the Nixon administration, it is difficult to believe Alexander Haig could be stunned by any move. In an interview on the CBS Morning News, Haig, former secretary of state, said he was stunned when President Reagan accepted his resignation before he had formally submitted it. I was stunned that we hadnt talked it out and he didnt take the time to tell me to send over my resignation before he formally accepted it, remarked Haig. Perhaps Mr. Reagan didnt wish to face the possibility of changing his mind about Haig throwing in the towel. Haig was asked: Were you set up? Were you sandbagged? Were you self-destructing? Haig answered: I suppose a little bit of all of those things. I could, J assume, still be secretary of state and could have Potomac Potpourri BY THE SUNS WASHINGTON BUREAU TOPPING THE CORPORATE LADDER: Ten years have passed since U.S. corporations began hiring more than token numbers of women for jobs at the bottom rung of the management ladder. A decade into their careers, how far have these women climbed? Not as far as their male counterparts, according to Fortune magazine. Despite impressive progress at the entry level and middle management, women are having trouble breaking into senior corporate ranks. The trouble begins at about the $75,000 to $100,000 salary level and seems to get worse the higher the bracket. Only one company on Fortunes list of the 500 largest U.S. industrial corporations has a woman chief executive, and that woman is Katharine Graham of the Washington Post No. 342. She readily admits, however, she got the job because her family owns a controlling share of the corporation. FROM HOUSE TO HOUSE: Former New York Congresswoman Bella Abzug, in describing herself and her battle to fight for womens equality, often talks about the support she has gotten from her own family. My husband, Martin, is a role-model feminist husband. He is very, very supportive, she said. When I first ran for Congress, my slogan was, This Womans Place is in the House... The House of Representatives. When I got elected, my oldest daughter was thrilled, she said. She was overheard saying, Thank God we got her out of our house, and in their House.

Haigs biggest problem is that he enjoyed the power he had in the Nixon administration and would like to be president of the United States. He doesnt like to take orders from anyone. Haig has written a book, Caveat, which will probably make the bestseller list. Asked about first lady Nancy Reagan, Haig said: I think he (Reagan) is influenced by Mrs. Reagan on the full gamut, his life. He wouldnt say if the influence was good or bad. Its not for me to make these judgments and I certainly couldnt because I dont know her and never did get to know her. At least with that comment, Haig is probably 100 percent honest. People will no doubt be clamoring to purchase Caveat. .

FACTORIES OF THE PAST: Women are streaming into the workforce as pilots, engineers, lawyers, construction workers and all kinds of other jobs since thought to be mens work. The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) has, however, raised some pertinent questions about what exactly lies in store for tomorrows working woman. AFSCME suggests that many people believe computers and word processors will create new and interesting jobs for women. Diana Rock, director of AFSCMEs womens program and former associate personnel director in the Carter White House, is quick to explain the little-known threat posed by new office technology the risk that it will confine workers to dull inputting jobs. She suggests the offices of the future might easily become nothing more than factories of the past. Phone 774-4545 Community Service Award Winner Arizona Newspapers Association Sun Opinion Page Berry's World 1964 by NE4. Inc "OK, kids, today were dear mine fields. " Robert Wagman WASHINGTON (NEA) - The Rev. Sun Myung Moon, Korean-born head of the Unification Church, was convicted of income-tax evasion in 1982. He now wants the Supreme Court to review his case. The U.S. government says the high court shouldnt hear Moons appeal, despite the growing list of churches and churchmen supporting his petition for review. Several recent developments indicate that the Moon case could become a constitutional landmark. Between 1973 and 1975, Moon deposited about $1.7 million in several accounts at New Yorks Chase Manhattan Bank. During that time he paid taxes on some income from those accounts, which were used for personal expenses, including his childrens private-school tuition. However, he did not list as income or pay taxes on about $106,-000 in interest from the Chase accounts or on $50,000 worth of stock that he had been given in the Tong II Corp., a firm that imported goods from Korea for sale in the United States. The government argued that the bank accounts and stock were in Moon's name and were solely controlled by him, and therefore that the income from them was taxable. Moon argued that both the funds and the stock were the property of his church and that he simply acted as a trustee. After a six-week trial, the jury decided that since Moon used these funds for his own investments and other personal ends, he was guilty of willful income-tax evasion and several related offenses. A sharply split Second Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the conviction by 2 to 1. Earlier, Moon was joined in his appeal by a large number of mainline churches, which see the decision as a threat to religious freedom. The religious freedom issue is explained by Moons lawyer, Lawrence Tribe, professor of constitutional law at Harvard. What happened in this case, says Tribe, is that you had a jury determining what is a valid religious use of funds. The government presented no evidence that any use made of these funds was, in fact, non-religious from the perspective of the Unification Church. We believe that the religious clauses of the Constitution require the government and its courts to accept a churchs own definition of what is a religious use. Originally, Moon was joined in his appeal by the National Council of Churches, the United Presbyterian Pathways of Memories (10 Years Ago Today in The Sun) Flagstaff city officials began a review of a rough draft budget for fiscal year 1974-75 that could go as high as $11.4 million. The Grand Canyon Council, Boy Scouts of America, won an unprecedented second national award for its public relations efforts.

Southwest Lumber Mills Inc. going to learn how to Will High Court Save Moon? Church, the African Methodist Episcopal Church, the Unitarian Association and the National Black Catholic Clergy Caucus. More recently, additional amicus briefs were filed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints (Mormons); the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.); the American Baptist Churches; the National Council of Churches of Christ; a group of Catholic laymen, including Clare Boothe Luce and Eugene McCarthy; the American Association of Christian Schools, and the American Civil Liberties Union. But other churches have little to fear from the Moon case, according to Solicitor General Rex Lee who, on behalf of the Reagan administration, has issued a brief seeking to have the Supreme Court deny Moon a review. Lee argues that the Moon case raises no issues of general importance and that any charges that the case violates any principal of religious freedom are entirely without foundation. Moreover, says Lee, even informal financial arrangements maintained by churches in good faith are not in jeopardy. Jeremiah Gutman of the New York Civil Liberties Union, speaking for the various amici, says Lees brief is insulting to the many churches which have filed amicus briefs and is insulting to the court. It is sanitized of any arguments on the constitutional issues and simply reargues the merits of the case. Now another influential group is asking the Supreme Court to review the Moon decision and for reasons that have nothing to do with religious freedom. The attorneys general of Oregon, Hawaii and Rhode Island are asking that the case be reviewed. They contend that if the lower court decision is allowed to stand, it will be impossible for states to regulate trusts especially charitable trusts. The Moon case, they say, casts doubt upon the integrity of the trust concept itself and turns the guiding principles of trust law upside-down. If the case stands, they say, thousands of already-decided trust cases might be reopened, since one of the most settled areas of trust law would again be open to argument. The basis for this argument is the fact that in the Moon case, both the trial court and the majority on the appeals court looked only at how the funds were used and ignored the donors intent. The attorneys made its first shipment of Pronto Panel, a new type of sheet-board it was manufacturing. (50 Yeurs Ago Today in The Sun) Caution against forest fires was urged by Ranger E.H. Oldham as forest conditions were very dry. Northern Arizona volunteer supporters of the Boy Scout movement and regional leaders were to gather in Flagstaff to determine the future of the scout program in this area. The program was in danger of being turned over administratively to Phoenix. Abe S. Chanln First Person (Editors note: The author, a veteran Arizona newsman and a professor of Journalism at the University of Arizona, Is on a round-the-world trip.) ROME, Italy Our world is small and continues to shrink. It was raining in the Eternal City when I headed down the Spanish Steps for the American Express office to of course cash some travelers checks. At the bottom of the steps I spotted a carabinieri but before I could ask directions a man standing next to him pointed to his left and said in English, American Express. Those two words led to one of those wonderful encounters of travel and proved how really small our Earth is. The helpful italiano asked where I was from. I told him Tucson, Arizona, and he started laughing, You know my friend Leon Levy? You know, the big man with the lovely little wife. Of course I know Leon Levy, the former head of Levys Department Store in Tucson and former member of the Arizona Board of Regents. The Italiano introduced himself as Ronnie Grassi, a man ot dynamic personality and an entrepreneur who if he resided in New York would have sold and resold the Brooklyn Bridge a hundred times. It turned out that Grassi had taken the Levys general note that all trusts are created according to their donors wishes, and that the states only basis for regulating trusts is to determine if the donors wishes are being respected. If a donors intent is not to be considered, they argue, a trustee who misappropriates trust funds would be virtually invulnerable to enforcement of the trust or penalty for its abuse. Most of the groups supporting Moon emphasize that they dont care for either the man or his church. However,' they believe that the Supreme Court will agree that his case involves fundamental and important questions and that, despite the governments objection, the high court will agree to hear it. The People Speak A Low Wage Base Editor, The Sun: Hurrah for Judith Acrees article (April 16) in which she cites Flagstaffs low wage base as compounding the problem of finding affordable housing. Actually, the low wage base makes it hard to find affordable anything. Then, on the front page of the April 13 Sun, we have applause because of new industries considering Flagstaff attractive for relocation. Why? Because of a very reasonable, perhaps too low wage structure. The exploitation of the low wage earner in Flagstaff has reached epidemic proportions that can no longer be ignored. Our society really hasnt come very far from medieval feudalism, has it? It just wears a different Luncheon Tributes Editor, The Sun: I would like to take this opportunity to publicly acknowledge the contributions of Milum Linen Service and NAU Food Service toward making Coconino County Orientation Day a success. The use of the linen and dishes they provided for the luncheon that day made that a very special occasion. Participating in the day were 34 elected officials and guests from nine different chapters of the Navajo Nation. This was the first time an official day was set aside to familiarize the leaders from the Today Today is Wednesday, April 25, the 116th day of 1984 with 250 to follow. The moon is moving toward its new phase. The morning stars are Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. There is no evening star. Those born on this date are under the sign of Taurus. They include Russian composer Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky in 1840, Guglielmo Marconi, inventor of the wireless telegraph, in 1874, pioneer broadcast journalist Edward R. Murrow in 1908, singer Ella Fitzgerald in 1918, actor A1 Pacino in 1940 and actress Talia Shire in 1946.

Wonderful people, he said over cappucino at one of the worlds oldest coffee houses, Cafe Greco, founded in 1760. I always remember them. He is so big and she is so small. Give them my love. In the Cafe Greco there is a photograph of Buffalo Bill Cody and Sitting Bull, taken when they were on tour of Europe. I would have liked to have borrowed it for Paul Dyck, the Indian painter and ethnographer who lives above the Verde Valley near McGuireville and who is completing a massive history of Sitting Bull. Ronnie Grassi had been to America many times and had married a woman from Silver Springs, Md. She was wonderful, he said, But she is now no longer living. He now is married to an English woman. "You see, I like the Americans and the English, he explained. When Grassi heard we were heading for the Amalfi Coast, he insisted on calling his friend Luigi Russo at La Cambusa Restaurant in Positano, the fantastic village that clings to the hillsides. At his beachfront restaurant, Luigi told us how he had sailed on the U. S. S. Constitution and when he tired of the sea he returned to his hometown of Positano. Here it is quiet and we are all like one big family, Luigi spoke of the city that has become world-famous for its remarkable setting. We dont lock our cars. We dont lock our houses. We have no violence. And it is so beautiful. Some 3,000 to 4,000 people live in Positano; in the summertime the population is swelled by tourists to 20,000 many of them Americans who have discovered Positano. During lunch Luigi introduced us to Lisa Beveridge. The first thing she wanted to know was: Who is Gary Hart? Napoli papers carried the story of Harts New England successes on the front page beneath stories on Lebanon. You see, I am an American. My grandfather was a senator from Indiana and I lived in Boston for many years. The world is small. Americans meet in Positano; 30 years ago the United States was in another world for most of the residents of the fishing village. label. Instead of serfs and lords, we have common laborers and cor-porationbusiness owners. But business without ethics is like a boat without a rudder, eventually it is going to destroy itself on the rocks of its own deceptions. Business practice that does not promote the common good gnaws at individual integrity, debases the foundations of our society, and leads to increasing crime. Profit for the sake of profit is a soul-less demon. Have we accepted technology, mass production, industrialism and all their respective glories, but rejected the Sermon on the Mount?
