Section n Pages 1*20 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Sport* Classified GOP National head expected to be Robert Dole By GREGG HERRINGTON Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — Robert ,1. Dole, a first-term senator whose political record has earned him presidential favor while divinding his GOP colleagues, will take over the Tlepublican National Committee, according to sources in the party and close to the White House. Dole's appointment likely will come next week during the national committee's annual meeting here, the sources say. The post opened up six weeks ago when President Nixon named the current chairman, Rep. Rogers C.B. Morton of Maryland, to replace fired Interior Department Secretary Walter J. Hickel. Speculation had centered around Dole until mid-December when several Republican senators, including Senate GOP Leader Hugh Scott, opposed the Kansas senator and phi us to announce President Nixon's choice by Christmas were scrapped. Now, the sources say, Dole is alone in the running. Dole himself told The Associated Press he believes he is the leading contender but had not been notified by the While House he would get the job. Dole has made no secret he wants the post, maintaining Scott and Sen. Robert P. Griffin, R-Mich., are wrong in saying he can't handle both the committee and his job in the Senate. The Washington Post reported in today's editions that Scott and Griffin apparently have dropped their opposition to Dole after meeting with the Kansas Republican Tuesday. The Post said the 47-year- old freshman senator assured Scott and Griffin he would respect their prerogatives in directing legislative strategy for the President's programs, while reserving his right to speak out as an individual senator and as party chairman when Nixon's policies . are under partisan attack. The Post also said informants reported Dole told the two men he would take no part in any challenge to their re-election. In the meantime, the GOP Utility ad probe asked by Metcalf WASHINGTON — Sen. Lee Metcalf (D-Mont.) will ask the Federal Trada Commission (FTC) to investigate misleading utility advertising content. Metcalf said advertising that claims the companies are doing extensive research to protect the environment and to seek new sources of energy are "patently deceptive and misleading." "They are trying to meet massive technological problems by massive advertising and sales promotion — this despite the energy shortage — rather than by the needed research and development programs," he said. Metcalf cited statistics from the Federal Power Commission (FPC) that show utilities spent eight times as much money on advertising and sales as they did on research into environmental problems and new sources of power in 1969. Expenditures on advertising and sales increased 11.8 per cent from $289.6 million to $323.8 million from 1968-69, Metcalf said. During the same pe r i o d , research and development expenditures increased 6.9 per cent, from $38".4 million to $41 million. "What this means is that the lOU's (investor owned utilities) are doing less but telling us more about power shortages and pollution," Metcalf said. "The industry's priorities are reversed." Metcalf said he would also ask the FPC to eliminate the classification of advertising and promotion costs as operating expenses. Under this procedure, utilities would pay for their advertising out of earnings, and could no longer include it in rate base figures. national headquarters announced Tuesday Morton will name a nominating committee this week to formally recommend a new chairman to the national committee. The nominating committee will meet first with Nixon, however. The sources explained Nixon would make clear at that meeting his preference for Dole. The 47-year-old Dole, after eight years in the House and two in the Senate, has emerged as the leading Senate spokesman for the President on widely varied issues. In fact, ,he has criticized Scott for not sup- porting Nixon more staunchly. Shortly after the November election Dole, 47, said, "Younger, more aggressive leadership is needed by the GOP in the U.S. Senate." Dole also is opposed by some liberal Republican senators who say the job should go to a moderate. But one liberal, Sen. Charles McC. Mathias of Maryland, said, "While Sen. Dole speaks from the conservative wing of the party, I think he understands the necessity for "bringing together all elements of the party. I've discussed these things frankly with Bob Dole and he agrees." California 138 Size NAVEL ORANGES oo Buy'em by the bag!
