(UPI) Three young Annapolis men are off on a four year trip they hope will take them around the world and through some of nature's roughest terrain, most of it in inflatable canoes. John Paxton, 21, Steven White, 28, and Jim Malone, 25, began the trip during the weekend in an air-conditioned Cadillac owned by Missouri Sen. Thomas F. Eagleton, who wanted the car delivered to his home in St. Louis. But after fulfilling the arrangement with EagJeton, the three won't be able to look forward to .such luxury again. The official starting point of their journey, which they have titled "Circumnavigation of the planet Earth in a canoe," is a mountain stream in the Wyoming highlands, a trickle that flows into mountain lakes, then the Green River, finally the Colorado. The three say if they can get to Brazil with their 19-pound inflatable red canoes. National Geographic will pay them $500 a month for their diary notes and photograpJis. They expect to lake a year to reach Brazil, living as much as possible off the land. In their 60-pound packs they will carry a storehouse of food, two guns, an Army medical kit and surrettes of snake bite antidote. From the mouth of the Amazon they take a steamer to the west coast of Africa. Then up the continent's rivers toward Morocco, and on to Afghani.s- lan, India, Nepal and, hopefully, China. The itinerary includes a total of 73 counties, but the toughest part is expected to come at the beginning. "If we make it down the Colorado we'll have no trouble at all," said Paxton. "That's the roughest river in the world. "It's fast dark and deep. Some guy did it in 1850 so I figure I can do it now." Now It's Koto First it was Japanese toys, then cameras, TV sets, and cars. Now koto is entering the American scene. Koto, looking vaguely like a surfboard with strings, may become the successor to the Indian sitar among fans of exotic music.

By Tom Tiede WASHINGTON - (NEA) When Greg Reed, then 19, was running for the 'Vermont legislature last year it was only natural he invoke the name of Richard Nixon. He was Republican, his parents were Republicans and his state was Republican. Besides, Reed believed the President a good fellow, had limited the war, ended the draft, stopped campus riots, etc. Now in office, Reed's party loyalty has come back to taunt him. "Ever since Watergate," he says, "people come up and ask what I think of Nixon now, like it was all my fault or something. I tell you, I get a lot of bull in this job." The Vermonter is not the only politician getting barnyard salutations over the Watergate controversy. Politicos everywhere are frying in the heat of suspicion or public reaction. But Reed, just a tad, now only 20, and new to political perplexities, suffers especially. Kids his age chide him, adults ignore him and everybody wonders aloud how a nice young boy can keep honest in such a dirty business, Man, Reed sighs, "Everybody's on my back," His lament is similar to that of many of his young office-holding contemporaries in America, From California to Connecticut freshmen are being initiated in politics the hard way, in the wake of angry Watergate emotions. These elected officials, the campus activists of the 1960s, the "Children's Corps" of idealists who have entered office in unprecedented numbers since 1970, have had the misfortune of embarking on careers at perhaps the most critical time in American government. "As if being young weren't handicap enough," says one of them from New Haven, "we got Watergate, too," Indeed, the combination of youth and politics has been one of the saddest sidelights of Watergate, So many of the )rincipaTs of the affair have )een political youngsters that the Senate Watergate hearings have several times mused about the unfortunate alliance. When, for example, former White House aide Gordon Strachan, 27, was asked what advice he'd give young people coming into politics, he said quickly: "Stay away." As it happens, Strachan's advice is apparently not being accepted by large numbers of young politicians. An NEA survey of two dozen U.S. of­ ficeholders, age 20 to 28, reveals bitterness and anger over Watergate, but no thoughts of abandonment. Most polled have had a negative image of politics most of their lives — "a basic distrust," says Ann Arbor, Mich,, councilwoman Carol Jones, Most polled have • not been shocked by Watergate — "I've always felt Nixon capable of anything," says New Mexico state senator Tom Rutherford, Thus despite their age and inexperience, they say they're not so naive as to run when a stink bomb hits. On the contrary, says Rutherford, "I think most young people will redouble their efforts to clean up public office," Rutherford, a 26-year- old Democrat, feels that the problem is not the system, but IS those who manage the system. "Like any other profession, politics has its bad guys. But we're not all crooked. I know at least I'm not." If Watergate proves anything, adds 22-year-old Boston councilman Larry DiCara, it's that "decent men make decent government — John Kennedy proved this to me 10 years ago." Still, even the "decent" are having hard times after Watergate. Paul Soglin, the hairy, independent, 28-year-old new mayor of Madison, Wis,, says that he has been virtually hamstrung during his four months on duty: "Watergate has made it very difficult to be mayor. I'm trying to run my office on a basis of mutual trust, but nobody trusts anybody any more. It's hard to do any delicate negotiations." For example, Soglin says, his administration is trying to buy land for a park. The public, stung by Watergate, wants everything done in open session. "But if we make it all )ublic," sighs Soglin, "the and price will skyrocket," Then too, Soglin adds, "We are having problems with our police department," (There is some criticism of the chief and some allegations of fraud,) "We want to get to the bottom of it, but how can we »et anybody to speak out if it las to be made public? God, there has to be some secrecy. Yet secrecy in government has become for many a synonym for what's wrong with government. And though So­ glin says furtiveness is a must, many of his peers disa- 5 ree. Councilwoman Carol ones of Ann Arbor, 20, says politics — from campaigning to administration — is much too much under the table.
