Carb6ndale-Herr!n-Murphysboro-Marlon SOUTHERN ILLINOISAN, TUESDAY, JUNE 26, 1979 Pege Nine nate decorum disturbed by wgmmemit Washington (AP) It. was not in the tradition of the Senate,; where handshakes, backslaps and courtly salutations are a time-honored custom even among opponents. There was Sen. Lowell Weicker calling; fellow Republican John Heinz "an idiot" and "devious" right there on the Senate floor. It stopped the Senate cold. Usually senators call each other by names such as "my distinguished colleague" or "my good friend." At least in public they do. But Weicker, of Connecticut, and Heinz, of Pennsylvania, were on opposite sides of a heated argument. And as Weicker explained it later, he felt Heinz had questioned his integrity. "When a member substitutes innuendo for fact or the persuasion of logic, he is either an idiot or devious, and the senator from Pennsylvania qualifies in both ways," Weicker charged. Heinz jumped up from his seat and demanded to respond. Weicker refused to let him interrupt, and an obviously angry Heinz stormed to the front of the Senate with a rule book. Rule 19 says no senator shall "impute to another senator or to other senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a senator." Heinz invoked the rule, and Weicker was ordered by the presiding officer to sit down and stop talking. Weicker paused a moment, then sat down. With that, the Senate's debate on a $13.9-billion supplemental appropriation bill came to a halt for about 15 minutes until Majority Leader Robert Byrd negotiated a truce and got Weicker and Heinz to shake hands. The incident was triggered by Wei-cker's proposal to prevent the government from underwriting a $6.35-million loan for the Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel Corp. to build a rail mill in Heinz home state. Weicker called the loan guarantee a government bailout. Heinz said it was fair relief for a company burdened by government regulations and unfair competition from abroad. Heinz asked whether Weicker's home state of Connecticut was not the headquarters of a corporation that owns Colorado Fuel and Iron, a competitor of the Pennsylvania company. That was what Weicker viewed as a slur on his motive in sponsoring the amendment He said he didn't know the answer, but that it wouldn't make any difference. After a quick check by his staff, Weicker stood up to say that the Colorado company was owned by a corporation in New York, not. Connecticut. '-'St 9 if"-; 'Pit i, if Lowell Weicker John Heinz GOP leaders aim at Carter : Minneapolis (AP) National Republican leaders are winding up a two-day meeting with talk of President Carter's vulnerability, but it was Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy who was on many minds. "I think Sen. Kennedy wants very badly to run. But he's got a particular problem," said GOP National Chairman Bill Brock, in an interview. "If he frontally takes on Jimmy Carter and takes him out, he runs the risk of a very divided party. So what they (Kennedy backers) apparently would like joido is find some other candidate wh03:ould do the damage to Carter, some other candidate who could mor-tally. wound him in the early primaries, and then Sen. Kennedy could come in." Brock said Republicans are not gear ing their campaign at this point to any particular candidate on the other side. "I think the odds would have to favor President Carter just because he's the incumbent. But I wouldn't put a lot of money on it," he said. opens Goncord office -v- Concord, N.H. (AP) Four years ago, a political unknown named Jimmy Carter opened his New Hampshire primary headquarters in a darlcc ill-lit building that once housed a pool hall. President Carter's 1980 campaign headquarters are just across the street, in an airy, six-room suite. But the enthusiasm and optimism of the old days were-- missing as the re-election effort opened Monday. His: organizers predicted victory, insisting that Carter isn't in trouble but hasr.lost support because "he hasn't beeC-given credit for all the work he hasdone." ".We haven't done a good job of communicating the president's accomplishments, and we have a lot of work to do to get that message out," said Evan Dobelle,-Carter's national campaign manager. "-the president's New Hampshire campaign is not going to be any different: than it was in 1976. We're going to win. just like before."
