'A'2 Alton Evening Telegraph Saturday, Aiipusl 10, 1972 GOP platform welcomes Denis MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The Republican platform being readied for nexl week's * OOP National Convention Invites Democrats to votv for Richard Nixon and forsake what it says is "tlic radical clique'' controlling the Democratic party. The draft of a first platform section, endorsing a strong defense and standing pat on Nixon's pefice-with-honor terms for a Vietnam settlement, was issued late Friday. Two sections on domestic issues are soon In follow. The draft platform predicts that the Nixon bandwagon will be joined by "millions of discerning Democrats and concerned independents who will not, and cannot, lake part In the convulsive leftward lurch of the national Democratic party." Asserting that the choice for voters is between "strength and weakness for our country in the years to come," the platform extends its open- arms welcome to Democrats Library (Continued from Page 1) Godfrey and Fostcrburg residents would have the continued use of all facilities "of the largest library in this area" if they joined the district. If the referendum fails, though, on Oct. 1 all Hayner service to Godfrey and Fosterburg would be cut off. On that date, a one-year demonstration grant of $94,600 to expand Hayner service awarded through the state as an incentive for forming a 'district, will end. If, however, •'Tuesday's referendum passes, •'Hayner will receive an additional $94,600 grant from the state, Stimson said. Stimson said Godfrey and Fosterburg people have made "heavy use" of the main library in downtown Alton as .well as the branch library opened in the Godfrey town hall and bookmobile service provided Godfrey and Fosterburg in the past 10 months. Godfrey people have also made big use of the mail order book service, he said. Hayner is the only public library in Illinois providing the mail-order books and "I would think rural Godfrey residents would want to continue this," Stimson said. Stimson said that Godfrey and Fosterburg residents increased the number of books they borrowed from Hayner from 2,000 last October up to 10,000 in July, or ; 38 per cent of the total borrowed The leaflet written by Kennedy also states that the ''15 cent levy for Godfrey and Fosterburg residents would mean an extra $15 in taxes for each $10,000 in assessed valuation. Based on Godfrey's 1971 valuation of $55,373,382, Godfrey would contribute $83,060.07 in taxes to Hayner if the referendum passes, Kennedy said. Kennedy also pointed out that with additional referendums, the library tax rate can be increased up to 40 cents, which would mean $221,493.53 in Godfrey taxes based on the 1971 valuation. Stimson responded that Tuesday's election would only establish a 15 cent levy for Godfrey and Fosterburg if the referendum passed and no higher levy was being considered.

Its adoption is considered certain, though flour skirmishes on women's rights and school busing arc possible. The platform language suggested that Hepublican emphasis on alleged leftward leanings of the Dnnocratic presidential nominee, Sen. George Mcdovern, will be a running theme of the OOP's campaign. The OOP platform draft pledged a continuing quest for a Vietnam settlement pcr- m i I ( i n g (he people of Southeast. Asia peace under arrangements of choosing." It endorsee! Nixon's "refusal to accept terms which would dishonor his country" by yielding to Hanoi's demand that the United States scuttle the Saigon government In favor of a fommunisl- dominatcd regime. The plank endorsed Nixon's offer to withdraw remaining American forces four months after an internationally super-. vised cease-lire has gone into effect and prisoners of war have been returned. In addition to calling for the return of prisoners and an accounting of the missing in action, the plank declared: "Here and now we reject all proposals to grant amnesty to those who have broken the law by evading military service." The platform took a swipe at McGovcrn's proposal to cut defense spending by $32 billion in 1975, reduce U.S. uniformed strength to the lowest level since before the Korean War, and halt some weapons system development. The defense plank denounced what it termed "the meat-ax slashes with which some Americans are now beguiled by the political opposition." Shriver says office bugged WASHINGTON (AP) Democratic vice presidential nominee Sargent Shriver claims his law offices were bugged, but. the supposed victim of the bugging says it's not so. v Shriver departed from his prepared speech text to tell i'. Philadelphia audience Friday night, "The FBI came in to screen my office ... to sweep it." That was done, he said, because eavesdroppers "had been in there bugging the line." Later, Shriver's press secretary, Donald McClure, said Shriver refered to an eavesdopping device found in the office telephone of his law partner, Patricia Roberts Harris, also prominent in party affairs and chairman of t li e Democratic National Convention's Credentials Committee. H c said FBI agents removed the device from her telephone. Questioned about the report early today, Mrs. Harris said, "I don't think thai is accurate." She confirmed that the investigation took place, but said no bugging equipment was found in her office. "1 was not informed that any bug was found in my oflicc." she added. Shriver raised the subject in discussing the June break- in at Democratic National (' o in m i 11 e e headquarters which, then, was located in the Watergate complex.

James M. Brown, SIU chief of board staff, told reporters in a breakfast meeting that the audits are operation il material and the law does not say the university has to release operational mateiial. • "They have not been made available in the past," Brow.-i said. "These audits are internal operating material for use by the university and do not concern the press and public." SIU trustees are considering changes in the university auditing procedure providing for a system of internal checks and audits by the Office of the System Auditor. That office presently makes regular audits of all university offices and departments. At present, only audits made by an outside firm under contract with the state arc available for public inspection. SIU, however, does not release those audits either. The state does. Brown said he is "fascinated" by media claims that reporters are entitled to see records of state universities. "I find the approach taken by the press to be extemcly fascinating," Brown said. "Their method of logic is often astounding." Brown is often at odds with reporters who cover SIU because of his constant Old rules for aviators DALLAS (AP) — Airline pilots flying in and out of Love Field may not be aware of all the rules that the have to contend with. Among these U.S. Air Service rules, laid down in 1920 and still on the books, arc: Don't turn sharply while taxiing. Instead, have someone lift (he tail around. Pilots should carry handkerchiefs to wipe off their goggles. Hedge-hopping won't be tolerated. Pilots will not wear spurs while flying. Don't trust altitude instruments. Don't leave the ground with your motor leaking. And, last, but not, least, if an emergency occurs while flying, land as soon as you can. refusal to release documents pertaining to university business. In the past few months, he has refused to let reporters see copies of board staff comments and recommendations that, trustees use (o make their decisions in open meeting. Brown said internal system audits help the university improve itself and can correct problems without them ever becoming formal reports. Often, he said, the auditor will find a problem, discuss it with the department head and correct the situation without having to make a report. He challenged the reporters to find a state law that requires him or the board to release copies of the audits. "Read the law," he said, "T believe you will find it does not back you." A Telegraph ivestigation earlier this year revealed that board staff comments are covered not by the public records act, but the open meeting law. Rep. Anthony Scariano, who co-authored the law, i told the Telegraph that board staff comments have to be public record because they are considered by the trustees in open meeting. Brown and the board, however, refuse to accept that position and continue to conceal the comments and many other univerity records.
