Demo President Aspirants Wait for Kennedy Move GQJ €jbMffl ..fiflQister-Mdij > ,Golesbutg, 111. Wednesday, July 11, 1973 f By DONALD LAMBRO WAsHtNQflON (UP!) - A line of ambitious and increasingly restive Senate Democrats will be waiting with bated breath for Sea Edward M. Kennedy to make the "hard decision" whether to seek the presidency in 1970. Washington Window No matter how high their individual political fortunes may rise between now and Kennedy's ultimate announcement, the ambitions of past and future White House aspirants hinge inextricably on the Course to be set by the sole surviving Kennedy brother. For there can be little doubt that should Kennedy decide to run—and many contend he is already running —he could expect little if any oposition for the nomination. A new Louis Harris poll matched Kennedy against Vice President Spiro T. Agnew and gave Kennedy a lead of SO per cent to 42 per cent. Matched against former Treasury Secretary John B Connally as a GOP nominee, Kennedy led, 49 per cent to 45 per cent. Line Begins Forming But the line to the rear is forming anyway —waiting, FAT OVERWilGHT The Odrinex Plan can help you become the slim trim person that you would like to be.

Sold with this guarantee by: watching, perhaps even searching, for some sign that Kennedy will decide hid responsibilities to his family and the children of his assassinated brothers rule out a bid for the nation's highest office. The Massachusetts senator said in a recent interview he recognized "there's a responsibility to make dear intentions at an early time," perhaps giving the other hopefuls a clear shot at the 1976 nomination. Meanwhile, the party's other contenders are becoming in^ creasingly active politically, striving to play a major role in the Senate's legislative battles and stake out their own reputations. Sen. Walter F. Mondale, D- Minn., a close Kennedy ally, has been accepting more speaking engagements and churning out press releases lashing the administration on everything from the Cambodian bombing to the anti-poverty program. Jackson Bides Time Frequently mentioned as a possible candidate, the young, liberal Minnesotan has said that talk of a 1976 presidential bid is '''premature," despite enthusiastic prodding from his mentor, Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey. Sen. Henry M. Jackson, D- Wash., whose 1972 campaign for the presidential nomination failed in the primaries, has held center stage in the Senate this year on a half dozen different issues ranging from the energy crisis to Soviet trade As chairman of the Interior Committee, Jackson won Senate passage of a bill to set strict mandatory allocation of fuels and he is pressing for more far-reaching legislation to solve the energy problem. As chairman of the perma nent investigations subcommH tee, Jackson will be at the forefront of investigations he is undertaking into the Soviet grain deal and the oil industry. Friends say Jackson would like to make another try for his party's prize, but he is waiting to see what Kennedy will do. Maikle Option Open Sen. Birch Bayh of Indiana made a well-financed effort for the 1972 nomination, but pulled out early when his wife was found to have breast cancer. Young and articulate, Bayh has earned a reputation in the Senate for his leadership on gun control laws and legislation to combat drug abuse and juvenile delinquency. A big reelection win in the 1974 congressional elections could propel his candidacy two years hence. Speaking on the party circuit or on the Senate floor, Sen. Edmund S. Muskie of Maine still sounds and acts like a presidential candidate. Despite' his come down from 1972 frontrunner at the hands of George McGovern, Muskie admits he's "keeping all the options open" for the next time around. "If the opportunity arises," he has said, "then we'll take another look at it." But before the ambitions of any of these men can be set into concrete campaigns, Kennedy must first call a news conference and announce his political plana "I realize at some time I'm going to have to make hard judgments about these particular matters, and I will," he said. "I think all of this is really a question of time. Now| obviously is not the time, | certainly not before the '74 elections, sometime after that." Legal QneHhn Q. I am 67 years old and I haven't received any Social Security checks since I had them stopped when I went back to work in May of 1972.1 have already filed my federal income tax return for 1972 which shows how much I earned. However, my neighbor says that because t received some Social Security payments in 1972 I am also re quired to file an annual rerport with the Social Security Administration Is this true? I earned $2,400. A. Yes. A person must file an annual report with the Social Security Administration if (1) his earnings for 1972 came to more than $1,680 and (2) he re ceived Social Security benefits in any amount. Upon receipt of that report, the administration will determine whether the individual is entitled to any addi tional Social Security payments for the year or must refund any payment that was made. In 1972, $1,680 was the maximum a Social Security recipient could earn without affecting his bene fits. Effective in 1973, the allow able earnings is $2,100. The deadline for filing of such re ports is the same (April 16 this year) as the deadline for fede ral income,tax returns. —Illinois State Bar Assn.
