Section B Pages 1 to 12 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH Sportg Classified Poll shows Walker slipping CHICAGO (AP) - -A Chicago Sun-Times survey of voter preference shows Gov. Richard B. Ogilvie has cut by two-thirds the statewide lead held by his Democratic opponent, Daniel Walker, in a similar survey in April. The newspaper reported in its Sunday editions, however, that Walker still holds a 12- point lead based on a sampling of 1,599 voters In selected areas of the state. In the poll taken between Aug. 2 and Aug. 7, Walker led Ogilvie 52.9 per cent to 40.7 per cent, the newspaper said. In the April Sun-Times survey, Walker led Ogilvie 66.9 per cent to 30.8 per cent. The newspaper said it did not attempt to determine the reasons for the Walker slippage. The survey was conducted during the period Sen. George McGovern, the Democratic presidential candidate, reconsidered his choice for a vice presidential running mate after the medical disclosures by Sen. Thomas Eagleton of Missouri. Delegates favor Spiro in 1976 MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Vice President Spiro T. Agnew says he has made no decision to run for president in 1976 but "I'm keeping the options open." He set out that position Sunday amid speculation that the seeds of an Agnew presidential nomination in 1976 are being sown as the rules are written by the 1972 Republican National Convention. "I'm very pleased with It," the vice president said when asked about Miami Herald and Washington Post delegate surveys showing him by far the favorite for the 1976 GOP presidential standard bearer. "But this doesn't mean I've decided to seek the presidency," Agnew added. Agnew made the comment to newsmen as he focused his arrival and first-day convention activities on getting out a youth vote for Nixon. The vice president predicted at a poolside youth- appreciation dinner that a great many more of the new 18-year-old voters and other young people are going to vote for Nixon than people expect. And he said they're going to "because of his programs." (ADVERTISEMENT) Looking for a Better Job? Alton, Illinois, Monday, August 21, 1972 . sod wwtneu, ages 18 and ovec, are wonted to prefer UJS. Civil Service Quang Tri city devastated By PETER ARNETT AP Special Correspondent QUANG TRI, Vietnam (AP) — As efficiently as a heel grinds out a smouldering cigarette, so have the South Vietnamese, their American allies and the North Vietnamese crushed the life from Quang Tri City. Both sides are systematically destroying the once-pleasant riverside community of palmshaded streets and historical sites where 80,000 Vietnamese lived. It is an orgy of destruction that has no parallel in the Vietnam war. The- vistas of tumbled, broken homes, of steel roils • sticking grotesquely from twisted concrete walls, of hollow-eyed, crouching men are from earlier wars. Quang Tri today is Seoul in 1950, Cassino in 1944, the towns and villages of Europe wiped out in World WaWr I. A pall of Mack smoke hangs over the city, like that over an American industrial town in the days before anyone bothered about pollution. But. here the only industry is war. The South Vietnamese marines inside Quang Tri have taken well over 1,000 casualties in 25 days at a conservative estimate, the'r American advisers say. The Vietnamese paratroopers before them were relieved because of crippling casualties. No one wants to go forward or back, only to crouch under a wall and listen for the boom of a distant gun firing, and the cru-ump as the shell screams into the city. At least 1,000 shells boom into Quang The very day, they say. And that is not counting the shelling and air strikes launched against the North Vietnamese. At any one time that enemv might number 600 men at most, the marines say. Some sit inside the walled Citadel in the northern part of the city, reportedly with enough food and other supplies for two years, left behind in May by the fleeing South Vietnamese infantry. The North Vietnamese al c o hold five strongpoints in f he south of the city, formerly Confers with McGovern Former Atty. Gen.
