•' 16 Golwlburo Realster-Moil, Gpfeiburg, Friday, May 11, 1973 Long - Distance Sign Gives GOP Bug Reaction Clue By ARNOLD B. SAWtSLAK WASHINGTON (VPl) - In the heyday of Josef Stalin, about the only way outsiders could get a clue about Kremlin politics was to study photographs to see who was standing next to the boss on top of Lenin's Tomb reviewing, parades in Red Square, Washington Window Like that type of long distance entrail-reading, a letter written last week by one Republican leader to another might be one measure of the Watergate affair's impact on the GOP hierarchy. Ronald K. Speed, president of the liberal-leaning Ripon Society, wrote the letter proposing a number of steps that could be taken to clean up the election and campaign process. Speed wrote the letter to George Bush, Republican Na­ tional Committee chairman. There's nothing wrong about that, except that it wasn't Bush who issued the call for "new standards" to reform political campaigns. It was Richard Nixon, the President of the United States and the man who chose Bush to be chairman. 'New Standards' What Nixon said was: "1 urge the leaders of both political parties, I urge citizens —all of you everywhere —to join in working toward a new set of standards, new rules and procedures to insure that future elections will be as nearly free of such abuses as they can possibly be made. This is my goal. I ask you to join in making it America's." To which Speed's response was an open letter to Bush, not Nixon, proposing that the Republican National Commit tee, not the administration, set U A I I 'C 'ELECTRIC "MtL J SERVICE 220 VOLT • 100 AMP SERVICES — INSTALLED BASEMENTS REWIRED — CIRCUITS ADDED Up-Date Your Old Wiring.

Among other proposals Speed passed on were suggestions that special campaign organizations "such as the Committee to JR«Elect the President" be out* lawed, that candidates be made "legally accountable*' for the actions of their campaign workers, and that individual campaign contributions be limited. •! Since the Committee to, Re- Elect the President was Nfiton's personal creation, since the President's (and Sen. George McGovern's) fund raisers used every legal dodge they could think of to encourage huge individual contributions and since the President has told the nation that the 1972 campaign was the only one in his politica career that he left to others to run, perhaps it is no wonder that Speed wrote Bush.' Stain of Watergate A couple of weeks ago, when Vice President Spiro T. Agnew announced that he had confidence in the integrity of the President, the first (or sometimes second) reaction of many who heard it was sheer amazement. That the vice president should feel called upon to vouch for the honesty of his boss seemed patronizing at best. •Vmcr Jxxxxi CUP & SAVE .OJSILO is? .0, 10> MOTHER'S DAY SPECIAL Off WOMEN'S Shoes Priced From and up Coupon Good Thru Mort., May 14 SHANE«SHOWERS Family Shoe Store 153 E.

BoobyTrapKillsIRAYouth BELFAST (UPI) - British officers said today the Irish Republican Army blew one of its own teen-age volunteers to bits while apparently attempting to rig another booby-trap ambush for troops on the Irish Republic border. Their explanation followed the discovery Thursday of a badly mutilated body scattered amid three bomb craters on the border with the republic. The blast and the assassination earlier Thursday of an Ulster Defense Regiment militiaman, raised the toll in almost four years of violence among Protestants, Roman Catholics and British forces to 786 dead. The militant Provisional wing of the IRA said in Dublin that the victim was one of its volunteers. It identified him as Tony Ahearne, 16, of Cork and Great David J. Downey •abort W.Uu Paul I.

The "ProVos" called*Mm the first volunteer from the south to die "serving with his comrades in the north." "It appears they were trying to set up another booby-trap ambush like the one that killed three of our men last Saturday," a British officer said. A British helicopter spotted the body after farmers said they heard a blast. Fearing a possible trap, ground patrols went in only five hours later. Long Autopsy Fails To Show Poison HANNIBAL, Mo. (UPI) "The air has been cleared," (laid the daughter of former Sen. Edward V. Long, D-Mo., alter autopsy results announced Thursday indicated the senator died of heart failure, and was not poisoned. Dr. Stanley Hall, a Hannibal pathologist, announced the remits at a tense news conference at Levering Hospital here, ; Hafi said the autopsy showed Ifo finding of chocolate in Long's stomach, no evidence of poison in his body and no Evidence of, a brain tumor. Helen, jftunlop, Long's long'[."bony abormality." time secretary and companion, had tdld authorities the senator believed he had eateir poisoned chocolate candy the night he died last Nov. tf. Miss Dunlop took a lie detector test, which her attorney said proved she was telling the truth when she reported the senator said he had been poisoned. The suspicion about the cause of death caused Audrain County Prosecuting attorney Thomas I. Osborne to request the exhumation of Long's body. The body was removed from its grave last Thursday and preliminary tests were said to reveal a large pituitary tumor. However, Hall said the growth was not a tumor but a large Hall said Long had an enlarged heart and a past history of heart ailments. He said the fact the senator was an obese man added to the' strain on his heart. J. 0. Mudd, Pike County coroner, had signed the death certificate listing cause of death as a stroke. Mrs. Ann Miller, Long's daughter, said of the autopsy findings, "The air has been cleared. It has been a terrible ordeal. I do not understand why it had come up." Long's widow, Mrs. Florence Long, said, "I'm glad it's over." Mrs. Long has filed a $3.25 million alienation of affection suit against Miss Dunlop, charging she knew Long "carnally.' Miss Dunlop has denied ever being intimate with Long. Free Checking Free Checks . . . . FULLY PERSONALIZED Check WITH THE ONLY BANK TO OFFER THIS EXCLUSIVE SERVICE IN GALESBURG.
