THE NEWS, Frederick* Maryland 1, IfW Page A-3 Wallace Faces Bitter Alabama Comeback Bid By JERRY T. BAULCH Associated Press Writer Eight primaries set for Tuesday; add up to the biggest political day so far in this fast-building campaign year with the fate of George C. Wallace's third party presidential hopes at stake in Alabama's gubernatorial runoff. Attention also will focus on Senate primary voting in California, New Jersey, Montana and Mississippi and party balloting for candidates for governor in California, New Mexico and South Dakota. House seats in all eight states will be up for grabs as well. In Alabama, Wallace faces incumbent Gov. Albert Brewer, who defeated him in the initial Democratic primary last month by 11,763 votes, but failed to build the necessary majority. Wallace faces a tough shot since no candidate finishing second in the initial primary has ever won an Alabama gubernatorial runoff. Tuesday's winner is all but assured general election victory since the Republicans have indicated they will have no candidate in the fall. Several factors are at work in the Wallace-Brewer runoff, including the 30,000 voters registered since the May 5 election, the potential impact of the nearly 150,000 votes cast last month for the No. 3 finisher, Charles Wood, and the race issue. Brewer received the lion's share of the state's large black minority in May and Wallace has made much of this "Negro Bloc vote" in an effort to pick up more of the white vote, particularly among Wood's followers and the 500,000 registered voters who stayed at home in the first round. A Wallace defeat would put serious dent in any plans he has to build from his 1968 third party presidential try for a stronger bid in two years. In California, polls rate Los Angeles Mayor Sam Yorty an underdog in his battle with for- mer Assembly Democratic Leader Jesse Unruh for the par. ty'* nomination for governor. Republican Gov. Ronald Reagan is unopposed for his parly's nomination for a second four- term. Also in California, polls show Republican Sen. George Murphy a strong favorite to withstand a primary challenge by multimU- ionaire industrialist Norton Simon. The Democratic Senate primary is rated a tossup, with Rep. George Brown contending against Rep. James V. Tunney, son of former heavyweight champion Gene Tunney. New Mexico Democratic Sen. Joseph M. Montoya is favored to best Richard Edwards, a former state representative who is challenging him for renomina- tion. Montoya got a boost from Senate colleagues Friday when the Ethics Committee cleared him of any wrongdoing in connection with published reports that he and other senators had taken payoffs to introduce bills to head off deportation of Chinese seamen who jump ship in the United States. If Montoya wins, his likely opponent in the general election will be GOP Gov. David F. Cargo, who is vacating the governor's mansion to try for the Senate. Six Republicans and three Democrats are scrambling for party nominations to succeed Cargo. New Jersey Senator Harrison A Williams is rated a favorite to win renomination over primary challenger Frank J. Guarini, a state senator backed by the powerful Hudson County organization. Williams also was among those cleared by the Ethics Committee Friday, but the published reports had not been as big an issue in New Jersey as in New Mexico. Favored for the Republican nomination for Williams' seat is former .state party chairman Nelson Gross, who has the support of almost every GOP county organization. Besides Montoya and Williams, the only other incumbent senators involved in Tuesday's primaries are Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana and Democratic Sen. John Stennis of Mississippi. Mansfield faces no strong opposition and Stennis is unopposed. The only incumbent Congressmen with outward signs of primary trouble are in California - Rep. John J. McFall and Jeffery Cohelan, both Democrats, and Republican Paul N. McCloskey. Dollar Freed From Control Bv Canadians OTTAWA (AP) - The value of the Canadian dollar was expected to rise today in the wake of government action Sunday unpegging it from an eight- year-old official worth of 92.5 U.S. cents. The government announced that it would allow the dollar to "float freely" in the world market, as the West German government did with the mark for a month last fall. Finance Minister Edgar J. Benson said Canada would resume its obligation to the International Monetary Fund to hold its dollar within narrow limits "as soon as circumstances permit." Benson gave no indication when that might be expected. In Washington, the monetary fund issued a statement welcoming "the intention of the Canadian authorities to remain in close consultation with the fund with a view to the resumption of an effective par value at the earliest possible date." The U.S. Treasury Department said it recognized "the circumstances that motivated this action" and commented: "The U.S. dollar is not affected." Benson said he did not expect a very large change in the exchange rate. He said Canada would use its foreign exchange reserves to moderate any violent swings. The action means that Canadian exports will tend to be more expensive, and foreigners traveling in .Canada will be spending more of their money. Imports into Canada and travel by Canadians abroad will be less expensive. The Canadian dollar has been pegged at 92.5 U.S. cents since 1962, when the government was forced to abandon the floating exchange rate because of downward pressure on the currency. Under an agreement with the IMF, Canada has kept the value of its dollar within one per cent of either side of the pegged value. But in the past several The Cert 1» ALWATS a matter ef jrow «wa cMce. DAILEY'S FUNERAL HOME 1*1 NORTH MARKET ST. Svccntw Tt C. E. Cline Son ·ST. INI TraditiM - UwfettteBdlBf a AttaathM to always months, there has been a big influx of foreign funds to buy Ca- adian products and invest in Canadian enterprises. In order or this money to come into Canada, foreigners have had to uy Canadian dollars with U.S. dollars or other currencies, creating a large demand which las caused the Canadian money to strain its upper limit. In order to keep the Canadian dollar below its agreed-upon maximum value, the Bank of anada has had to borrow money from Canadians to sell dol- ars. In a seven-week period extending to early May, the federal banks' balance fell from more than $1 billion to just over $400 million. Students End 100-Mile Trip In Wheelchairs ST. LOUIS, Mo. (AP) - Ten crippled college students rolled into the city Sunday in wheel chairs, ending a 100-mile demonstration of their stamina for work. The students, members of the Winged Wheels Club at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, ni., averaged four miles an hour over the six-day trek from the campus to Busch Stadium here. At least two wheel chairs were on the road at all times while others took breaks. "We were getting tougher every day," said John Taschler, 24, Madison, Wis., president of the club. "We decided we had to slow this thing down or we would get there too soon." The students had planned to sell 5,000 pencils on the campus to raise money for a job-hunting campaign, but the school closed down after recent antiwar protests Mike Kaminski, 22, Middletown, Wis., leader of the trip and an infantry veteran paralyzed from the waist down by a mortar explosion in Vietnam, said the students decided on the "jaunt for jobs*' to "create public awareness that handicapped persons can perform many tasks." The other students were Bill Chadwick, 21, McHenry, III.; Alex Wilton, 26, Chesterfield, Mo.; Alfred Biecken, 20, Evansville, Ind.; Pat Gibson, 22, St Louis; Mike Winters, 19, Ken Barbee, 20, and Herb Hoffman, 23, all of Chicago; and Christine Curtis, 20, Miami, Fla. Taschler went job hunting after getting his B.A. in speech but found it "damned difficult.*' Now a graduate student, he said of the trip: "We met a lot of fine people. And they learned a lot about handicapped people. We're just as human as anyone else. We just have a different mode of transportation. But we showed we have the stamina to do a job." ambodia Government Proclaims Martial Law MORTARBOARD PROTEST AT VASSAR-Vas- Sunday.

(AF Wirephoto) Home Subsidy Plan Falters WASHINGTON (AP) - Government officials are worried the nourishing home-mortgage subsidy program, in addition to aiding low-income families, may be abetting slum speculation and racial discrimination. Preliminary reports indicate most Negro families using the subsidies are buying older homes in inner city areas, says Charles B. Davis, the program's director. Whites, on the other hand, appear to be using subsidies to buy new homes in suburbs, he said. "There are indications, especially in Washington, D.C., that Negro Priests Take Over Groppi Parish MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Rev. James F* Groppi, militant civil rights leader, has made his farewell sermon at St. Boniface Roman Catholic Church. "If I had anything to do over again I would be more militant," he told his racially mixed parishioners Sunday. Father Groppi and three other priests who made up a white pastoral team formed three years ago are leaving St. Boniface to make way for a team of Negro priests. The Negroes were appointed at Father Croppi's suggestion. The first VS. patent was issued in 1790 to Samuel Hopkins of Vermont, for an improved method of preparing pot- and-pearl ashes. slum speculators are using the program to unload old homes they couldn't otherwise sell," Davis said. "And some of these louses are in obvious violation of codes-- local enforcement we have no control over." Government statistics for the third quarter of 1969 show that the average age of existing homes purchased with mortgage subsidies was 27 years; under conventional, nonsubsi- dized FHA mortgages, the average home age during the same period was 16 years. Low-income families are receiving a median government subsidy of $55 a month toward their mortgage payments. They are required to pay 20 per cent of their adjusted income for home costs. Davis said some builders promote homes designed for the subsidy program in such a way as to attract only whites to suburban areas. The government will soon begin investigation of both slum speculation and racial discrimination in the subsidy program, Davis said. He said evaluation is difficult because the government has just begun to collect housing data by race. The median gross income of families receiving the home subsidies is $5,685 a year compared to $11,174 in conventional programs. They buy homes costing aboul $15,000. Of these, 56 per cent are new and 44 per cent are existing homes. Some 28 per cent of th subsidy families are headed by women. The program aided 100 families to purchase homes in 1968, 8,700 in 1969 and an estimated 119,000 will be helped this year New Location DR. R. G.

I.on Nol's Cambodian government warned its critics today with a proclamation of martial law. Martial law went into effect without a full explanation of what it meant, but diplomatic sources said the purpose was to brmalize what is already going on and to warn critics of the government to keep quiet. Homes are already being searched without warning or warrant Military patrols already enforce a nightly curfew n Phnom Penh and in the countryside. There were suggestions that the military would intervene to speed up trials of those accused of any crimes connected with the war effort. The government has been particularly concerned about the torrent of rumors flooding Phnom Penh, and "rumor mongers" were thought to be one target Rumors flourish in part because heavy press censorship permits only glowing accounts of the Cambodian army to appear in print. The Cambodians, like foreign observers, are skeptical of this because of the large number of key provincial capitals lost to the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong, and because the government considered the situation dangerous enough to accept help from South Vietnam, a traditional enemy for centuries. When he deposed Prince No- rodom Sihanouk as e'uief of state on March 18, the general wooed public favor by citing Si- hanouk's tacit permission to let North Vietnamese and Viet Cong troops operate freely in eastern provinces.
