Turner Shakes the GOP Money Tree, But All He Gets is Small Change By Harrison Weber Iowa Daily Press Association DES MOINES - Attorney General Richard C. Turner is shaking the Republican party's money tree, but so far, all he's getting is loose change. In four elections Turner has received a total of $3,550 from the Republican state central committee. He figures a candidate for attorney general, or other statewide office, should receive more. On three occasions Turner has taken his fight to the Republican state convention by offering a resolution; each time he has been rebuffed. This past weekend the GOP convention goers in Des Moines tabled Turner's latest resolution which called for the 'Republican state central committee to allocate funds to the candidates on a percentage basis. Turner proposed that the party allocate 40 per cent of the money available for individual campaigns to their Kate, Dr. John Are All Smiles gubernatorial candidate, 30 per cent to their candidate for the U. S. Senate, two per cent to each of the congressional candidates and three per cent to each of the remaining candidates for statewide office. In this latter category are the lieutenant governor, secretary of state, auditor, treasurer, secretary of agriculture and attorney general. Turner claims the party's candidate for lieutenant governor has been receiving FUNNY BUSINESS $15,000 from the central committee; he doesn't know committee. Wednesday, July 24, 1974 5 D Secretary of Agriculture how much Governor Robert Robert Lounsberry supported Times Herald, Carroll, la. By Stephen Ford NEW YORK - (NEA) Because Joel Dorn produces records for such contemporary musical giants as Aretha Franklin and Roberta Flack, there were some bemused executives at Atlantic Records when he announced his newest discovery: Kate Smith. But wait. Dorn, a Levis-clad, bearded professional who commutes daily from Philadelphia to New York, had more ideas which were bound to send the Atlantic execs up the wall. Not only did he want to produce a Kate Smith single for the same company which packages such acts as the Rolling Stones and Bette Midler, he wanted Kate Smith to sing with members of Count Basic's orchestra, a trio of Motown- sound background singers, a handful of banjo pickers from the Philadelphia Mummers' marching band and New Orleans' high priest of Voodoo, Dr. John. And because Dorn is one of the country's most highly regarded producers, it all happened. The result is "Smile, Smile, Smile," a single rising nicely on the Middle-of-the- Road charts. And Kate Smith, one of America's natural resources for 45 years, is overjoyed. What lured Miss Smith back to a studio mike after five years of semi-retirement was something as far removed from the record business as, well, as Kate Smith is from Dr. John: ice hockey. Dorn, it turns out, is a devout fan of the 1974 Stanley Cup winners, the Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers start many home games with a recording of Kate Smith's famous "God Bless America" and Dorn, hearing this at each game, said he suddenly thought to himself one night, "Hey! She's a great singer! "I had just heard a song by three writers who were looking for a producer," explained Dorn. "I liked the song but knew it wasn't right for any of my artists." But it was right for Kate Smith. He contacted Miss Smith who, after hearing the song, politely flipped. "It was a song to take everyone out of the depression the country is now in, take their minds off politics and money," she said. "It was a morale booster like something from World War II." But enticing Miss Smith into a studio was only one of magician Dorn's tricks. The topper was his securing the second half of the strangest DRIVING \ WAWTEDTO Ray has received from the party in each of his previous three elections. In 1966 the attorney general received $550 from the party, $500 in 1968, $1,000 in 1970 and $1,500 in 1972. "I haven't received any money this election, nor have I-been informed as to what amount will be given to the state officers," Turner said in an interview. "Two years ago I believe the candidates for congress each received $2,000 and I understand they already have received $3,000 this time," Turner said. Turner addressed the convention on behalf of all state candidates except State Treasurer Maurice Baringer. Turner said as far as he can determine the "lesser state candidates" each receives less than one-half of one per cent of all funds that are distributed by the central committee to the candidates. Baringer spoke in opposition to the resolution. He pointed to a large sign next to the podium which had a county-by-county tabulation showing how well each county had met its quota. Baringer said only 27 or 28 per cent of the state quota had been raised to date. It was his contention that Turner's resolution would hamstring the central committee. State Senator Lucas Dekoster of Hull also argued that such an arrangement would "tie down" the central Turner's resolution, noting that when he first ran for office two years ago he received no financial help whatsoever from the state central committee. Turner conceded that the party does some printing which includes pictures of all the candidates. They also do some other work which benefits all of the state candidates, he added. ''But I'm getting information that they have helped certain legislative candidates, but not others. When I was in the Legislature, I don't recall receiving any money from the state central committee, or even from the county central committee. "We're just wondering where all the money goes and we want the people to know that we only get a small percentage from the party and have to raise our own funds," Turner said.

"I didn't know anything about Dr. John," Miss Smith said. "Everyone just laughed when I asked about his music but he told me he was a great fan of mine and I found him to be a charming young man. In fact, Joel is planning a second single for. me in September and I hope to record with Dr. John again." Dorn said that in envisioning "Smile" he was looking for a "particular kind of sound, good-time struttin' music, like the Philadelphia Mummers do. I had talked with Dr. John some time ago and he told me he was crazy about the Mummers. So I figured his love for string bands and the kind of piano he plays would fit in just perfectly with Kate. And it did." Not awed by the voodoo man with his bright plumage and bizarre make-up. Miss Smith was knocked out by today's recording technology and Dorn's engineering wizardry. . "When I think back to my first record in 1929 for RCA Victor, when 38 musicians and myself filled an old warehouse for three-hour sessions, four nights a week, I could faint," she said.
