mi Friday, June 8, 1973 12 ..6olesbujpg,.8eQ.istei*MQ \ElectingAtheist President I Would Be Diffieu It in U.S. By LOUIS CASSELS , United Press International Rdigious prejudice is a steadily declining factor in American politics. The day is in sight wlhen a Jew could be elected President. But it still would be hard for an avowed agnostic or aitheist to make it to the White House. Of God and Man That appraisal comeg from a highly respected political analyst, Richard M. Soammon, director of the Elections Research Center in Washington and former director of the U.S. Bureau of the Census. In an interview published by "Church and State" magazine, Scammon said it is "highly .unlikely" that Catholic oandi- • dates ever again will face the kind of opposition on religious grounds that John F. Kennedy encountered and overcame in his 1960 campaign. "President Kennedy's dhurch- state record alleviated the suspicion with which he had been viewed before his election," Scammon said. "There was very little concern that Sens. Robert Kennedy and Eugene McCarthy were Roman Catholics when they sought the 1968 Democratic presidential nomination. No objection was raised for Sen. Edmund Muskiei in 1968 or 1972. If Teddy Kennedy has any problem in 1976, it certainly won't be due to his Roman Catholic faith." "Couild a Jew ever be elected president?" Scammon was asked. No Swing Noted "Yes," he replied, "though probably not in the immediate future, such as 1976 or 1980. Polls indicate a diminishing hostility to a member of the Jewish faith as a presidential or vice-presidential candidate." Election of an avowed atheist or agnostic would be "much more difficult" than election of a Jew, Scammon said. I • An agnostic candidate who kept quiet about his disbelief or was hypocritical about his religious views might sneak by, he said. But "it is safer for candidates to have ait least some religious affiliation." Scammon isiaid it's too early to tell whether Roman Catholic voters, who gave up traditional Democratic ties to vote for Richard M. Nixon in large numbers in 1972, will remain in the Republican fold. In the 1972 presidential race, •the Catholic vote was as much or more an "anti-McGovern vote" than a pro-Nixon vote, he said. No major swing of Catholic voters was noted in congressional races. A "moderate-centrist" Demo­ cratic .ticket, especially one headed by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, "would probably swing a majority of Catholic voters back to the Democratic party" in 1976. Jews Concerned Jewish voters traditionally aligned with the liberal wing of the Democratic /party also have been defecting to Republican candidates in substantial numbers, not only in the 1972 presidential race but also in recent mayoral elections in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Philadelphia, Scammon observed. He said this switch^reflects "an increasing conservatism among many Jewish voters, particularly those concerned with urban amd crime issues." How many Jewish voters return to the Democratic ticket in 1976 will depend on who the candidates are and what issues are raised in the campaign, he said. Do Americans still tend to. voi'e for candidates of their own religious faith? 'Much less than in earlier years. Ideology now overshadows religion. For example, Sen. Eugene McCarthy probably would have run poorly among conservative Catholics in 1968 if he had been the Democratic presidential nominee."

Getty H, son of one of the world's richest men, was suicide or an accident. Getty, 48, a wealthy oil executive in his own right, died Wednesday in a hospital where he was registered under a false name. The cause was originally reported to be a cerebral hemorrhage. The body of "George S. Davis" was later revealed to be that of Getty, son of billionaire J. Paul Getty. Police entered the case when knife wounds were found in Getty's chest and left leg. There were bruises on his left leg and arm. The senior Getty, 80, who has often been referred to as the richest businessman in the world, was at his estate in England, reportedly deeply shocked by the death. 4**1 Takes Personal Charge Dr. Thomas Noguchi, county coroner-medical examiner, took Getty had a blood alcohol content of .06 per cent and had apparently taken "10 to 15 capsules" of phenobarbitol type sleeping pills, Noguchi said. Alcohol and the sedatives interreact to fatally depress the central nervous system. The case "has been referred to our behavioral scientists for further evaluation," Noguchi said, referring to a panel of psychologists who will attempt to reconstruct Getty's mood at the time of death to determine whether he was suicidal. The "psychological autopsy" technique was first used in the death of Miss Monroe, who died of an overdose of pills in 1963. Noguchi ruled out the knife |morning.

By United Press International About 3,500 species of mammals are known to exist. •.'»Tt*, 4 Children Lost to Nam But Number 5 Is 'Good One' PHILADELPHIA (UPI) Rose and Benjamin Packer had five children. Four died in a Nazi concentration camp. The surviving son, only 22, graduates from medical school today ait the top of his class. "God left me one son, but a good one," said Mrs. Packer, whose husband operates a small tailor shop here. They will close the shop today to attend commencement exercises iat Jefferson Medical School. A spokesman for the Association of American Medical Colleges in Washington said Milton Packer is probably the youngest individual in modern history to graduate first in his medical class. "You could easily classify him as a genius," mid a spokesman at Jefferson, where Milton received honors for his work in physiology, pathology and obstetrics. The Packers would not talk about, their other children. Born in Poland, the mother and father survived the horrors of Bergen Beisen, one of Hitler's notorious extermination champs. The children did not. Milton was born in 1951, four years after the Packers emigrated to the United States. He plans to intern at Bronx Medical Hospital and specialize in internal medicine. "Anyone with the same motivation I had, if he's willing to work that hard, could do just as well," he said. New Zealand Fearing Fallout GAMBLE On Insurance CALL AN EXPERT 342-3414 Your Independent Agent HUFF Insurance 407 Hill Arcade Galesburg, III. WELLINGTON, New Zealand (UPI) — Prime Minister Norman Kirk told Parliament tod'ay France cannot guarantee that its forthcoming Pacific nuclear tests will not send fallout drifting over New Zealand. This, he said, was because of atmospheric conditions that may prevail at the time of the tests—which France so far has not announced but which diplomats believe is imminent. The possibility of fallout has stirred widespread opposition to the tests in New Zealand, Australia and elsewhere, including boycotts of French goods and services and* a lawsuit in the International Court of Justice at the Hague. , Kirk also sakf New Zealand will go ahead, if necessary, in dispatching a navy vessel to the testing area despite France's action in imposing a danger zone of 320 miles in the test area. New Zealand, he said, would not recognize the French action, which prohibits ships from entering the area around the Mururoa Atoll testing site about 4,000 miles northeast of New Zealand. If New Zealand goes ahead with its "last resort" plan to send a navy frigate to the test zone as a protest gesture, Kirk said, the vessel would remain just outside the internationally recognized 12^mile territorial limit of the atoll.
