Waukegan Views President a Brea • By CHARLES SELLE WAUKEGAN - Only to America could that code word fof political chicanery, Watergate, still be alive and kicking a year after beginning its dilatory rise. Ejections would have already been held in, say, Britain, Canada or West Germany had these revelations been disclosed there. Public outcry would have demanded the resignation of those in power. Last In a Series While liberal East Coast elitists expectantly await future developments, Watergate is already past history in Waukegan. The consensus is that Watergate has gone the route of other momentary fads: it's passe. One big yawn. Of course, Watergate is stall a popular topic of conversation—running neck and neck with the weather—with the diversity of opinion one would expect, but it's slowly being overtaken by growing fears that Johnny Cash just isn't _ out some of his good 'ole boy jive when he announces Standard Oil ain't got no gas; by the faot their progeny can't get that good job after spending $10,000 and four years of college and by an over-all plea for a return to another era when they made less money, but their dollars went farther. However, they'll continue to spend, continue to buy and continue to send their kids off to college. FOR MANY IN Waukegan, Watergate is a paradox. Yes, something happened, but pressed to explain why it happened is tougher than building a crackerjack football team at the high school (usually a hot topic in autumn months). What happened and why Watergate took place is dismissed by comments like, "It's politics, it happens all the time; they got caught;" or "no one got hurt, did they?" These same parents who were heard to lament more than once, "Where did we go' wrong? How did we fail?" Watergate: Give k"For a Change Waukegan, III.

Waukegan is an industrial city with port facilities for lake and ocean vessels. Charles Selle Is a reporter for the Waukegan News-Sun. when their children rejected older values, now ask the same dead-end question about their government. A FEW WILL admit they have come to expect espionage, bugging and secret campaign funds as part of what they term politics, but what) they aren't ready to accept is the scurrying of those so far convicted or indicted, ready to tell all in trade for immunity from prosecution and the) quaking of a government rearing its 200th birthday. What talk there is of impeaching the President is emphatically negative in this mainly Republican stronghold. They like Richard Nixon — he 's their main man, now more than ever. They said that through their bumper stickers and votes in November and they still say it. What they like about the man wilt certainly overshadow any forthcoming. Watergate surprises. They point to the fact he's ended the Vietnam War, albeit four years later than his rhetoric of 1968 indicated, he 's made overtures for debate with Communist superpowers, but more importantly to them, through has term and nearly a half, he has slowed the country down and they like it.
