J& ASpringman Partee contender for top senate post By ANN MCFEATTERS Associated Press Writer SPHINGFIKLD, 111. (AP) Sen. Cecil Partee of f'hicago— the newly elected Senate Democratic leader—is a veteran legislator, a lawyer, a former assistant states attorney and a likely man to lead the once staunchly conservative Illinois Senate into more liberal territory. Partee, 49, has been in the legislature for 18 years. He was elected to his third Senate term last November and previously served five terms in the Illinois House. Partee is the first Black man chosen to a leadership position in the Sena#s and has long been singled out as one of the state's most able legislators. He and his family—there are two children—live on Curbs urged on ads Britain discourages smoking Telegraph Want Ads get results! INSULATION odfrcv. HI. P". 4M-34II R.V RODNEY FINDER Associated Press Writer LONDON (AP) — The British government came under strong pressure today to act against cigarettes after I. h e lioyal College of P h y s i d a n s reported that smoking kills more than 27,000 Britons a year. Some sources predicted that within weeks the government would follow the United States' lead and order health warnings printed on cigarette packs. Further restrictions on commercials are already banned from television— were considered inevitable. "The government must now take prompt action to see that, effective preventative measures to discourage cigarette smoking are taken," the Guardian said in an editorial. Most other newspapers agreed and several urged curbs on advertising, although newspapers would be hit hardest. The Daily Telegraph warned against a "monster horror blitz" against smoking, however, and asked: "Is it the duty of the government to terrify its subjects?" "It can inform, warn, exhort and set an example," the newspaper said. "In restricting and prohibiting it should move cautiously." The report from the Royal College of Physicians, one of Britain's leading medical bodies, said lung cancer was the biggest killer of cigarette smokers, but thousands die each year of bronchitis or coronary afflictions. "The chances are that two out of five heavy cigarette smokers —25 or more a day— but only one out of five nonsmokers, will die bfeore the age of 65," it said. "The man of 35 who is an average cigarette smoker—51 to 24 a day—is likely on average to lose 5^ years of life compared with a nonsmoker." If nothing Is done about the problem, it said, smoking could kill 50,000 Britons a year by the 1980s. Chicago's South Side in his primarily black 26th District. He was an assistant states attorney in Cook County for eight years before entering the legislature. Articulate and ' well informed, Partee was one of two Democrats considered in the running for leadership. There are indications that pressure from another black senator —Richard Newhouse of Chicago —was a factor in the choice of Partee. Newhouse had threatened to abstain from voting for President Pro Tern is Partee was not the Democratic candidate. This would probably have meant that —in the evenly split Senate —neither candidate would have the 30 U. S. combat role may end in fall PARIS (AP) — U.S. Defense Secretary Melvin R. L a i r d said today that American combat responsibility in South Vietnam will be ended by next fall. Laird told a news conference that the first phase of the Nixon administration's Vietnamization program will be completed by midsummer. He said after that, American forces will be limited to logistics, air support and security roles. The defense secretary and Adm. Thomas Moorer, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, stopped in Paris on their way to Bangkok and Saigon for talks on the progress of the war and the withdrawal of U.S. troops. Laird said Phase Two of the Vietnamization program calls for training and equipping the South Vietnamese forces to take over the logistics and air support missions. He said that this part of the program is ahead of schedule but requires much more time than the first phase. votes necessary for election. Partee has been a strong proponent of civil rights, open housing and equal opportunity legislation and he participates in Black caucus sessions. But he is not easily pigeonholed as a "machine" legislator or a maverick or even "the most able black senator." He has admirers of both races and on both sides of the party aisle. Partee was born in Blytheville, Ark., where he was educated through high school. He was graduated from Tennessee A and I state University in Nashville and got his law degree at Northwestern University. With iese LANE SPECIALS eiiWo GLASS CLEANER 1971. YouVe changed. WeVe changed. 98c FAMOUS BRANDS HOUSEHOLD AIDS IN LARGE SPRAY CANS ' Change. That's what it's all about this year. And that's we mean by putting you first. These are uneasy times. There are major concerns. About pollution. About safety. About the economy. About your hard-earned dollar. We know. For the past 10 years Chevrolet research people have questioned thousands of people on every subject from rising taxes to the size of the glovebox in their cars. We've found that price and maintenance costs, trade-in value and quality have become tremendously important. Your car has to work. It has to last. And each new model must have more built-in value. At Chevrolet, we understand. You want meaningful change. You want improvements that are not just skin-deep, but deep-seated. And one of those, among the many that you'll find in the 1971 Chevrolets, is new emission controls to help bring back clean air. In every new model, we've made further substantial reductions in both the discharge of hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide. All 1971 Chevrolet engines run efficiently on the new no-lead or low-lead gasolines, too, which not only decreases air pollution but increases the life of your spark plugs, exhaust system and other engine components. Caprice. The biggest, most luxurious Chevrolet ever. A complete change. Bigness in itself is nothing. But if it allows you to lengthen the distance between the front and rear wheels (which we did), then you've got something. You've got a smoother ride. The idea in the 1971 Caprice was to give you the looks and comfort of a six- or seven-thousancl- dollar car, without asking you to pay anywhere near that much for it. And above all, to build in as much dependability and security as possible. So we changed the body structure for 1971, too. We made it stronger. And we made it quieter by putting a double layer of steel in the roof. Caprice, as you can see below, is a lot of luxury at a Chevrolet price. Vega. The littlest Chevy ever. It wasn't changed from anything. Before building Vega, we read everything we could get our hands on about little cars. We talked to owners. We studied little cars up one side and down the other and, literally, tore them apart. We found out what made them tick, or why they didn't tick. What ticked were gas economy and dependability. What didn't were underpowered engines, cramped quarters and getting blown around in the wind. In our little Vega, everything ticks. It's not just another little car. You didn't want that. It's one little car that does everything well. 69c FAMOUS BRAND HOUSEHOLD Air Fresheners C Choice Of 5 Fragrances flow! WIST, 98c FAMOUS BRAND SPRAY PAINT TV Special.
