-8 Alton Evening Telegraph Tuesday, August 22,1972 McGovern in state, will meet Daley; Dems friendlier By MICHAEL K. ROBINSON DECATUR, 111. (AP) - The Initial coolness toward Uio candidacy of George S. McGovern by Illinois Democratic party regulars may be mellowing. Virtually every Democratic leader in Decatur and 2.000 other persons came to the city airport Monday night to shake hands with the party's presidential candidate and hear him attack America's involvement in Vietnam, electronic eavesdropping in political campaigns and tax loopholes for the rich. Whether the local parly officials came out of enthusiasm for McGovern's candidacy or just to shake a few hands on behalf of themselves was not quite clear. "Anytime you can get three or more people standing in one spot, you can get us out," a member of the Legislature said. But come they did. and McGovern will get a chance to solidify his support from Mayor Richard .T. Daley on a scheduled stop in Chicago Wednesday. At a news conference earlier Monday, Daley predicted McGovern will carry the state. Among those at the airport rally were State Sen. Robert McCarthy of Decatur as well as State Reps. John Alsup of Decatur and Holland Tipsword of Taylorville. Perhaps more meaningful was the presence of such labor officials as William Mathews of United Auto Workers Local 751; Boyd Shinn, regional director of the Allied Industrial Workers Union, and Mason Parker of the United Rubber Workers. Party officials included Leo Fitzgerald, state central committeeman from Springfield; Penny Sevems, national committeewoman of Decatur, and Hallie Bafford, Macon County chairman. McGovern deplaned from his charter jet with congressional candidate Larry Johnson of Champaign. The presidential hopeful wore a Johnson for Congress button in his lapel. The presidential candidate strolled along a wire fence shaking hands with businessmen in conservative suits, farmers in overalls and persons with beards and knapsacks. A few anti-McGovern signs bobbed up at the rear of the crowd, one a large banner reading, "Surrender Now." Although ho continued to criticize the U.S. presence in Vietnam. McGovern denied at' greater length than usual that he would jeopardize America's defenses. "As a bomber pilot in World War II, 1 learned that this country has to be militarily strong," he said. "I would never do anything that would jeopardize the defenses of this country." How much support McGovern can get from Daley was described as a question mark by some Democrats on hand. The Chicago mayor canceled plans to meet the senator at the Illinois State Fair last week. Relations between the McGovern and Daley camps have been tenuous since 59 proMcGovern delegates led by Chicago Alderman William Singer replaced the mayor's slate at the Democratic National Convention. ; But Daley denied speculation the meeting was canceled because he was angry at McGovern. Daley said the South Dakotan is "coming from behind, putting on that spurt" and added the 1972 campaign already has been more effective than that of Hubert H. Humphrey's four years ago. On McGovem's chances downstate, party leaders questioned at the Decatur tally were uncertain. "From Democrats, especially the ones who work in every election, you hear less and less against McGovern," Tipsword said. "The tide is dfinitely flowing in his favor, but whether it's flowing strong enough and fast enough, I don't know." Ogilvie signs bill which will aid handicapped SPRINGFIELD, 111. (AP) A program to provide state support for education of severely handicapped children has been expanded by newly approved legislation to meet cases where public facilities are lacking. Gov.

It will be the sixth moon visit by man and will also represent the longest say yet on the moon's surface. And it will be the first night launching of a manned spacecraft. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration said Monday the evening launch hour was scheduled to make possible a lunar landing at the desired sun angle just south of the moon's Taurus mountains and Littrow crater. Taurus-Littrow, a coin bination of mountain-dotted highlands and valley-strewn lowlands, was labeled by NASA as a keystone site <o fill in major gaps in the developing model of the moon. The site was selected on the basis of Apollo n orbital photography and !n the recommendation of Apollo 15 astronaut Alfred M. Worden.

(AV Wirephoto) Misery, suffering, bravery as Far East floods continue By JOHN RODERICK TOKYO (AP) — Filipino villagers carrying lighted candles waded waist-deep in swirling flood waters, praying for divine help. In Japan, a one-year-old baby was dug from the mud, chortling and unhurt. A 12-story luxury apartment house in Hong Kong collapsed under the pounding of thousands of tons of rain- weakened earth. A British attorney, pinned in the debris, calmly difected rescue workers. In South Korea, U.S. Army and Air Force helicopters and trucks helped save the lives of more than 3,400 people in flooded cities. Scenes of misery, suffering and bravery were commonplace in much of the Far East this wet summer as torrential rains touched off floods and landslides' that destroyed hundreds of thousands of dwellings. By today the death toll had reached 1,384. Damage mounted into the hundreds of millions of dollars. The poverty or modest circumstances of most of the victims living in low-lying areas or hillside squatter villages kept it from being much higher. Four areas were hit hardest: the Philippines, with 454 dead; South Korea, 398 dead and 130 missing; Japan, 370 dead, 67 missing; and Hong Kong, 162 dead. Heavy rains also pounded China, flooding Peking, but no figures were available on casualties or damage. Monsoons are the prevailing winds in East Asia that bring up to half a year of wet weather. Typhoons are the vast wind and rainstorms that lash the western Pacific during the summer and autumn.

This year's rains began taking their toll in mid-June, triggering disastrous landslides in the British colony of Hong Kong, where many of the 5 million inhabitants live on steep hillsides. The rain totaled more than 60 inches in three days, the heaviest in Hong Kong's history. Landslides buried 78 squatters' huts in Kowloon, on the mainland, the usual aftermath of a heavy rain in Hong Kong. But this time Victoria Peak, the home of the rich on Hong Kong Island, was also hit. A new building near the top collapsed, setting off a chain- reaction slide of mud and structures in which four buildings were brought down. Henry Litton, a leading attorney, was found alive in the rubble, one foot pinned by a heavy beam. Chatting calmly with his rescuers, he drink water and ate food while a buzz saw set him free. Nearly 5,000 other homes had to be evacuated. For two weeks in July, the rains bore down on Japan. An irrigation canal overflowed with a roar in the middle of the night, crushing the home of the Matsumoto family and burying one-year- old Kazumi and two of his grandparents. Another grandparent groped in the mud and felt something soft. It was Kazumi, crying as he was pulled free, then laughing. The Construction Ministry estimated that the rains, which struck Southwest Japan hardest, caused $472 million in property damage. In the Philippines, a month of rains ravaged 13 provinces on Luzon Island and set back the economy at least two or three years, government economists said. Damage to crops and property was estimated at more 'than'$450 million while the cost in human suffering was incalculable. People stranded on rooftops fought for food dropped from U.S. Ail- Force helicopters. Babies died because they could not eat the high-nutrient buns that were one of the chief relief food items. JERSEYVILLE - Items valued at $2,229 were taken from a rural Grafton home during the weekend in one of five separate burglaries reported to the sheriff's department. The loot at the Frank Trulaske home on Rte. 1, Grafton, included several sections of draperies valued at $1,000 as well as electrical appliances and men's clothing. Entry was made sometime between 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. Sunday by breaking a hole in the window glass to allow the burglar to reach in and open it, police said. A mini bike and a trail bike valued at $250 were stolen from the Truman Dabbs home on Rte. 1, Grafton sometime Sunday night. Cecil Hargis of 808 Union St. in Alton told police that vandals had damaged his clubhouse on Rte. 3, Jerseyville, to the extent of $2,500. Windows in the clubhouse had been broken out, holes chopped in the door with an ax and the entire premises ransacked, he said, between June of this year and Saturday. Papers and coffee had been scattered about, the heating stove overturned and papers had been burned on the porch, police said. A shed on the premises had been vandalized and extensively damaged along with the contents. Three boats at Piasa Harbor were burglarized last week, police said, with loot taken in one of the incidents, was valued at $19. Theft of a set of diamond rings valued at $150 from the Jack Huett residence at Medora was reported to police Saturday. The rings were believed taken either Wednesday or Thursday of last week, Huett said. The right rear window of a car owned by a University City, Mo., man was broken out while it was parked at the park over the weekend , police said. Sen.
