EX-SENATOR Eugene J. McCarthy has taken a jab at Sen. Edmund Muskie for the latter's past support of the Vietnam war. McCarthy said there is no very significant difference on the war issue between four of his current opponents: Muskie, Lindsay, McGovern and Humphrey. Then, obviously pointing at Muskie: "To say that you really ought to be for me because I admit that I was wrong on the war in '68 is to ask people to credit you with rather bad judgment." DARYL BEALL IN PHILADELPHIA, Hubert Humphrey said he would accept a black running mate in November "if my party nominated him." Humphrey and his wife Muriel attended a party with about 200 black community leaders. MUSKIE supporters in Iowa say they are elated over the announcement that Iowa Sen.

S. to avoid military service "should be hailed as patriots," former U.S. Sen. Ernest Gruening of Alaska said Monday. "They should not be condemned as slackers or draft dodgers," he added.

Edward Kennedy, officially a noncandidate "without qualification" launched a broad attack on the Nixon administration's foreign and domestic policies.

I can't say enough for the men on my committee including the Rev. Wayne Carlson, Jeff Johnson, Tom Kuhlman, Dave Reuland, Steve Kennedy and Dale Johnson. A special thanks to the many Estherville-area people who were involved on this project. Without your great backing, we would still be working to achieve our goal. It has been a wonderful experience for me to see the entire area involved in this drive to help a family in need. Thank you all. Karl Fisher, Chairman Hausmann Fund Drive Spirit Lake Around Iowa A big hornet's nest, larger than most, was found south of New London recently by Randy Miller — some 45 feet above the ground — according to some a sign of a "mild winter."

One example is the beautiful French stained glass window on the East Wall of the Methodist Church of Parkersburg. It is nearly 20 feet high, was a gift from Charles Wolf in the late 1800's and cost $15,000. Familiar Landmark (From Wednesday) Yesterday's "Where Are You" picture had you standing at the base of the monument that stands in the courthouse square just north of the building. The DAR in 1911 dedicated this monument to the pioneers of Emmet County and to the soldiers who protected them from marauding Indians. A plaque at the base also states that the monument marks the site of the original Fort Defiance. The stone pillar was originally intended to grace the others in the front of the post office in the block north of this site. However, there was a chip in the stone column and the building inspector would not allow it to be used in construction. L N. Salyer, the builder, then gave it to the DAR as a memorial and constructed it with the adornments s*een at the top. CHIP HASN'". STARTED ON HIS NEWSPAPER ROUTE YET?

Headed for Winter Sports Festival? A one-horse snowmobile was driven by Hattie Hite and her son Lester in 1900, as they traveled over the bleak prairies toward the old village of Raleigh. This was a home made compact bobsled. The photo was given to the Emmet County His­ torical Society by Julia Hite Hanson who lives in a mobile home located west of Raleigh on property operated by her son-in-law, Ervin Rierson. The place originally was purchased by Julia's parents, Charles and Hattie Hite, for $36 an acre. By Hal Boyle There are Jobs ... and Jobs NEW YORK (AP) - A young man man starting out now doesn't have the pick of jobs he did a few years ago. Getting any kind of job seems to him today about the most important thing in the world. But there are jobs and jobs.

Here, for example, are some jobs we wouldn't want to risk our future in: Teaching Casey Stengel the English language. U. S. Marine drill sergeant of a class containing Muhammad Ali. The fire insurance salesman who sells policies to wax museums. A cowboy in India, where cows have the right of way at all times. Guardian angel for Frank Sinatra. Mayor of New York City, when everybody in town is on strike except the street chestnut vendors. President of the United States, when half the people want you to get into a war and half of them want you to boycott it. A bomb inspector for the Saigon police department. A kilts salesman in Tel Aviv. A marriage counselor in an Eskimo village. Presidential campaign poetry adviser RIP KIRBY for former Sen. Eugene McCarthy. The men's charm school director who has the task of making Sen. Edmund Mus­ kie look both like a matinee idol and a homespun Maine potato farmer. A staff psychiatrist for Congress. Men's washroom attendant at a national convention of the Women's Liberation Movement. Entertainment chairman for any local chapter of the National Society of Embalmers. Quality control manager of any television network. City supervisor of morals in Las Vegas. Protocol adviser to Martha Mitchell. Leader of an emergency expedition to rescue the sinking U. S. dollar. Barber in a hippie commune. Tailor in a nudist colony. Yes, there are some jote that make a guy feel he'd be better off without—and just live on his unemployment check. i 7*<£*? t* Wat**?
