(Francis X. Lawlbr, a maverick priest who has bucked both the Roman Cath-" olic Archdiocese of Chicago and the Chicago political organization, has lost what he described as his last political battle. The gaunt, white-haired 57-year-old priest who has championed the blue collar white neighborhoods on Chicago's Southwest Side says he'll return to his priestly duties. . Lawlor, a Republican running for Congress in the 5th District -Democratic turf that includes the home of Mayor Richard Daley -was crushed Tuesday by State Rep. John Fary, regarded as a stand-in for a possible congressional candidacy by Daley's son, Richard. . Final vote tabulations showed Fary, best known for his successful efforts to legalize bingo in Illinois, got more than 72 per cent of the vote, with 53,537 ballots to Lawlor's 20,779. Only about one-third of the registered voters in the sprawling district showed up at the polls. In Chicago politics, a low voter turnout means a preponderance of Democratic organization loyalists. Fary hardly bothered to campaign. relying on the power orthe Democratic organization."'; ; / Lawlor had hammered away at federal housing programs he said promote "white flight" and destroy city neighborhoods. ' • "It's pretty obvious the machine has won again," Lawlor said scarcely an hour after the polls closed. "It's a well trained army that went out and did its work." Lawlor, stripped'of his priestly functions in the Chicago archdiocese after refusing a transfer and continuing his work organizing Southwest Side whites, had become disillusioned with politics and community activism as an independent Chicago alderman. But when Rep. John Kluczynski, D- 111., died in January, Lawlor decided to give politics one last fling, won a court order requiring a Republican primary after he was barred from the ballot, then won it as a. write-in. But his luck didn't hold in Tuesday's race. "I've always tried to teach truth and promote justice. Apparently not enough people wanted me to do. so in this capacity, so that's okay with me. I'll work in the area;I'm best trained to -the priesthood, the work my superiors will assign to me," he said. Ford Begins His Bid For Election In 1976 WASHINGTON (UPI) - President ;Ford has begun his own bid for election to the White House by renouncing a Watergate-type campaign and assembling a group of largely conservative. Pentagon-oriented campaign aides. ''•'• Although a committee to seek the Republican nomination for Ronald 'Reagan is expected to be formed this month, there was an air of optimism at the White House as Ford announced his candidacy. One aide, who< asked to remain unidentified, said the White House "is not the least bit disturbed by the Reagan camp" and "things are going just beautifully.'.' -,'' The three-minute public announcement in the Oval Office Tuesday was no surprise. The "President Ford.Com- mittee" in June filed a statement required to raise campaign funds - tantamount to a; legal 'declaration of candidacy. ,1 Sen. James McClure, R-Idaho, a conservative spokesman and chairman Ipf the Republican Senate Steering Reagan Still Undecided WASHINGTON (UPI) - Close allies of former California Gov. Ronald Reagan will establish a Reagan-for-President Committee this month to convince him to challenge President Ford < for the GOP nomination. Sources close to the California conservative said the committee's formation will be announced by the end of the month in Washington, although Reagan has still made',no decision,on whether he will seek the nomination. /Nonetheless, Reagan strategists told UPI Tuesday, the former governor has told supporters he is "neither encouraging nor discouraging" their efforts. One key figure in the group laying the groundwork for the committee, who did not wish to be identified, said Reagan will decide to run by the end of the summer. i "Reagan has not given us the go- ahead, but based on what I've seen, I'm convinced he's going to get into it," he said. Peter Hanaford, a top Reagan aide, confirmed Reagan talked recently with Washington attorney John Sears, who is spearheading the committee effort and who has long been a political.inti- mate of Reagan. '' ^ "The governor said only that he will make an appropriate response at the time they announce formation of a committee," Hanaford told UPI. •V'Tlie governor has not made any decision about running," he said. •-Helen Von Damm, Reagan's private secretary, also said Tuesday reports Reagan has decided to run were "purely speculative." Lyn Nofziger, a .one-time aide and political consultant to Reagan, was known to be among the committee's planners. .Nofziger and Sears are hoping the co,mmittee will be able to demonstrate there is broad conservative support for Reagan in the Republican Party and convince him to challenge Ford. .Reagan, who has maintained a he.avy speaking schedule in recent months, was "under pressure from a number of conservatives" to announce his candidacy, according to those within his camp. .Meanwhile, there was some question whether a committee could be organized in behalf of a presidential contender without his specific designation under the new campaign spending laws. The statutes do not necessarily prohibit such activity, but supporters of Reagan say the new Federal Election Commission may have to rule whether • the committee can operate and raise fimds without Reagan's approval. Committee, said that although Ford had strengthened his; claim on the nomination, the announcement had not blocked out other contenders. Ford did not refer directly to Watergate -the scandal that thrust him into the presidency -but said he would conduct "an open arid aboveboard campaign." ."I want every delegate and vote I can get „. within the spirit and the letter of the law," Ford said. ••-".• He named these campaign aides: the director, Howard "Bo" Callaway; for.mer Georgia, congressman and Army secretary; the finance chairman, David Packard; former "deputy defense secretary; the • campaign treasurer, Robert Moot, former Pentagon comptroller; and a campaign adviser, Dean Burch, Republican ija- - tional chairman during'.Sen. Barry Gold water's 1964 campaign. ' Chicago FBI Searches For SLA Fugitives CHICAGO (UPI) - The FBI said today it is intensifying its search around Chicago on the chance that at least one of the fugitives, in the Patty'Hearst case is hiding in this area. Richard G. Held, special agent in charge of the Chicago office, said William Harris, one of the principals in the Hearst case, might have fled to Chicago from Centralia, 111., where Harris was reported hitchhiking with a female companion on June 25. The hitchhikers* were; detained by Centralia police but released after they showed Social Security cards identifying them as Michael 'Andrews and Mary Hensley, names used in the past, by Harris and his wife, Emily: The FBI said the search here was intensified "because of the 'Sighting in Centralia." : ', An FBI poster released Tuesday contains three photographs of Harris, and included information that he might be in the Chicago area: Patty Hearst has been seen with the Harrises at least once since she was kidnaped Feb. 4, 1974, the FBI said. Mrs. Harris is''the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Schwartz, who live in Clarendon Hills, just west of Chicago. Governor Praises President Corel's Decision to Run COLUMBUS, Qhip, <upi) - President Ford^s decision to run for a full term, "comes as good news in the industrial heartland of tjiis nation," according to Gov.
