Goldwater Claims Bias Against GOP INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)- Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-Arlz., Thursday said that If Democrats teid been involved in the Watergate break-in, the news media would have called it "cute" rather than criminal "The press never goes after these things when it concerns a Democrat, just a Republican," the 1964 presidential candidate said. Goldwater also said as far "as cover-ups go," he believed there was more of a cover-up involved in Democratic Son. Edward Kennedy's Chappaquiddick incident in which a woman died. "If I had run that girl off the bridge, you wouldn't have heard tile end of it," Goldwater said. Goldwater, speaking at a news conference before addressing a GOP fund-raising dinner, said Democrats tried to bug his apartment during the 1964 campaign against the iaite Lyndon B. Johnson. "I'm convinced that Johnson had my television speeches before I saw them," he said. "They seemed to know everything I was going to do, everything I was going to say. But again, if a Democrat does it that's cute." Goldwater urged Republicans to stick by the President unless it is "proved beyond any question of a dioubt" that he was involved in the Watergate affair Goldwater toild the fund-raising dinner that although the GOP has been "badly damaged" by Watergate, it was not time for the party "to roll over land play daad." Howlett Urges VFW Support For President CHICAGO (UPI) - Secretary of State Michael J. Howlett today called upon members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars to take the lead in encouraging re spect for the office of the presi dency. Howlett addressed the 54th annual state convention of the VFW in suburban Rosemont. "We have only one chief ex> ecutive. We must unite behind the President to solve the prob lems at home and maintain the peace in the world," Howlett said. The secretary ticked off the problems facing the United States: Watergate, the numbers of missing-in-action servicemen in Southeast Asia, the wounded from the war there, the respon sibility to 2.5 million Vietnam veterans for health care and jobs, inflation, crime, drug abuse, transportation and edu cation. "The investigation of Water gate renews our faith in the strength of the American sys tern of government," Howlett said. "This is a time to put politics aside, a time for re sponsible leadership in public office, for responsible journalism and responsible citizenship. We must settle the great issues of the day." In appealing for unity behind the office of the presidency Howlett said, "We should let the agencies of government continue their investigation. But while the facts are coming out, careless talk about impeachment or resignation can only weaken our government at home and abroad." The VFW, he said, "should take the lead in stimulating respect for the office of president of the United States." Post- (Continued From Page 5) HOSPITAL NOTES Galesburg Registef-Mgil^GQlesburg^ III.

Wilber enlisted in the Navy in 1948 and became an officer in 1956. When he was shot down in June, 1968, he was the executive officer of Fighter Squadron 102, flying Phantom jets from the aircraft carrier America. The filing of charges does not automatically mean the officers will be court-martialed. As with the eight enlisted POWs through the military equivalent of a grand jury, and the charges could be dropped. Wilber and Miller both were reported by other POWs to have held antiwar views. On the flight home from Hanoi, they reportedly were slighted and ignored by the men with whom they had spent years in captivity. Wilber since has acknowledged making antiwar statements for the North Vietnamese even though he was noit tortured.

Had to Apologize NOTTINGHAM, England (UPI) — Mapperley Hospital, which warns drivers and pedestrians to keep silent with "quiet please" signs on its grounds, has had lo apologize to residents in the neighborhood. It's boiler was keeping them awake at night. 566 returned POWs from filing whatever charges they chose. Laird's policy miakes it unlikely that the services would convene courts - martial solely for charges based on antiwar statements. Laird did not rule cut charges 'based on collaboration with the enemy. The charges against' the eight enlisted men accused a number of them of giving intelligence to the North Vietnamese and of accepting better treatment. Wilber and Miller were with Stockdale. at the so-called "ha- noi Hilton," where few enlisted men were imprisoned. Guy was tin? senior officer, and hence commander of the POWs ait "The Plantation," where most of the enlisted men were confined. It is an accepted practice in the military ethic for the senior oflficer in a unit to file charges in his own name. However, Brig. Gen. John Flynn, the highest ranking officer held prisoner, has opposed courts - martial for returned POWs, and advocated a forgive- and-forget policy. Comfort Clauses Most Boredom BERKELEY, Calif.
