"When I became governor, the state was nearly bankrupt because of the failure of the previous administrations to adequately provide money for education and other vital services of the state," he said. "Under this administration we have doubled state expenditures for education—a total of $4 billion for elementary, high school and higher education," Ogilvie said. Walker said Ogilvie "and his band of 84 press agents have dazzled a handful of ordinarily reliable interpreters of state government." Asked about the remark, he said that Statehouse newsmen "and others could have done much more to dig out these Brazil celebrates 150th anniversary of its independence stories of pure mismanagement." "You'll be hearing more about them," he added, holding up a black, loose-leaf notebook in which he said he will collect facts and figures on the various government departments. On other matters, Walker said he is "not worried" about polls showing Sen. George S. McGovern, Democratic presidential nominee, lagging far behind President Nixon. "I think its obvious that he's going to pick up points between now and the election," Walker said. "I also want to say that I support Sen. McGovern although I don't see eye to eye with him on all issues. I do think that many of his proposals have much to be said for them." "I think the voters will make their decisions based on me and Gov. Ogilvie and not on whether they like me or Mr. McGovern," he said. ;; RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) ^ With parades, speeches, and •f; a-, royal burial, Brazil is ^celebrating the 150th an•~. ;iiiversary of its independence. ;; -'-^President Emilio G.

Otto Kerner's codcfendanls became the focus of legal maneuvering Tuesday as preparations continued for Kerner's trial on charges growing out of a racetrack stock scandal. Kerner'r. counsel, Paul Connolly, subpoenaed the contents of the cabinet, which was owned by William S. Miller, chairman of the Illinois Racing Commission during Kerner's governorship. U.S. Atty. James R. Thompson immediately filed a motion to quash Connolly's subpoena, saying that the cabinet was obtained by federal agents from Miller as part of an agreement whereby the pending indictment against him would be dropped and he would be granted immunity from prosecution. Judge Robert L. Taylor of U.S. District Court in Knoxville, Tenn., will hear Thompson's motion to quash Connolly's subpoena Sept. 11. Another clause in Connolly's subpoena demanded "all written documents pertaining to the agreement" by which Miller agreed to become a government witness. In another pretrial development Tuesday, Kerner's at• torneys filed a motion asking that the court issue a directive to all news media Educator wins Love joy award for humanities An educator from Florida was awarded the Elijah P. Lovejoy award for humanities at the recent convention of the Improved Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks in St. Louis. Dr. Richard V. Moore, president of Bethune-Cookirian College in Daytona Beach, F1 a., has been named recipient of the Elk's Lovejoy award for his contribution to the education of blacks. The award from the black Elks fraternity is named after Lovejoy, an Alton newspaper publisher who was slain by a mob for publishing antislavery editorials. not to publish any facts or information on the Kerner case unless they are in the public record. The motion also asked for a hearing to determine the source of unauthorized press leaks. Julge Taylor was assigned to the case after a federal court committee asked that a judge from outside Illinois be brought in to preside over it. The trial is scheduled to begin Nov. 15. Kerner, former Illinois revenue director Theodore Isaacs and former financial institutions director Joseph Knight are charged with bribery, mail fraud, income tax evasion and conspiracy. The charges stem from the alleged manipulation of more than $300,000 in Chicago-area racetrack stock when they were state officials. Miller and his former secretary, Faith Mclnturf, also were named in the indictment returned Dec. 16, 1972. The motion to quash Connolly's subpoena appeared to confirm reports that Miller and Miss Mclnturf will be key government witnesses against Kerner and his former aides. Wallace will be next chairman of Southern governors By WILLIAM L. CHAZE HILTON HEAD, S.C. (AP) — The stage has been set for Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace to become the next chairman of the Southern Governors Conference. Gov. John West of South Carolina said Tuesday he will step down and give the post to Wallace. West is vice chairman and would normally move up to the post for 1973. "Gov. Wallace has suffered emotionally and physically in the last few months. Whether or not we agree with him, this tribute from his fellow Southern governors was the least we could do," said West, like Wallace a Democrat. Wallace, critically wounded May 15 in an assassination attempt in Maryland, is attending conference sessions in a wheelchair. His reception has been markedly different from the one accorded him at the last conference when he was on the brink of anouncing his presidential candidacy. Then he was cold-shouldered by most governors. The next vice chairman is expected to be Gov. Melvin Evans of the Virgin Islands, who would become the first black to hold such a high pest in the conference. Also due for consideration today are a score of resolutions. One of them calls upon Congress to enact a uniform school desegregation policy. The resolution, identical to one approved last ' year, opposes busing for racial balance in schools. At a black tie dinner for the governors and their staffs Tuesday night, Vice President Spiro T. Agnew plugged for support for revenue-sharing legislation pending in Congress.
