(Staff photo by John Ebling) Demo Committee Considering Convention Delegate Challenges WASHINGTON (AP) - The Democratic Convention's Credentials Committee is wading into a massive round of delegate challenges that loom as the most critical hurdle left in George McGovern's path to the nomination. In what may be the severest test yet of the party's sweeping reform rules—many of which were promulgated by McGovern—the panel must weigh a record 80 challenges affecting delegations from 30 states. "McGovern's interest now," said his committee coordinator, Eli Segal, "is in a peaceful and harmonious convention. Credentials has the most potential for trouble." Although McGovern strategists were working feverishly to minimize conflicts in the seating of delegates, several cases pose an inescapable dilemma to his followers who Martha Trying To Get John Out Of Politics NEW YORK (AP) - Martha Mitchell says the election campaign "is nothing but a cops and robbers game, and I'm trying to get my husband out of it." The wife of former Atty. Gen. John Mitchell flew in from California Sunday and told the New York Daily News in an interview, "All I want is my husband back." "There is no reason for us to be involved in politics," she told reporter Marcia Kramer in an interview at her two-room suite at the Westchester Country Club in Rye, N.Y. Mrs. Mitchell's husband left the Cabinet to head the Committee to Re-elect the President. She declined to talk about the "dirty things" she knew about politics, but was voluble about her dispute with a security guard that she said led her to leave her Newport Beach, Calif., villa. She said the guard yanked the telephone out of her bedroom: "It was a horrible experience. Can you believe that a man can walk into your bedroom, take over, and pull the phone out of the wall? Mrs. Mitchell said she left for the East after an incident in which several guards "threw me down on a bed — five men did it — and stuck a needle in my behind. I've never been treated like this, ever." DWI Arrest Made Marvin Eugene Hardin, 40. Mineral Springs, Ark., was arrested for driving while under the influence of intoxicating drink in the early hours of Sunday morning. He was stopped in the 800 Block of W. Brown, according to the arresting officer's report. Watch Your AT-GO 088 ugly excess weight with the ensible NEW FAT-GO diet jlan.

By refusing to compromise McGovern's reform ideals, they could alienate Old Guard Democrats in Illinois and several other states whose support could prove vital to his chances against President Nixon, tf, on the other hand, they gloss over reform violations, they risk imperiling his credibility among liberals, blacks, women and youth. Moreover, in a challenge in California, any ruling favorable to those who contend the state's winner-take-all primary violated prohibitions against unit rule could cost McGovern his shot at a first-ballot nomi- nation. He now claims all 271 California delegates, whose case will be heard today but likely not decided until late this week or early next. McGovern's forces offered something of a unity concession Sunday night at the committee's organizing meeting, when they joined in the unanimous elevation of Patricia Harris, a black Washington attorney, from temporary to permanent chairman. They had opposed her original appointment several months ago on ground she was not enthusiastic enough in her commitments to reform. State Senate Expected To Study Spending Bill AUSTIN, Tex. (AP) - The special session will begin to heat up today if senators get to look at their $3.8 billion spending bill, but the real smoke is expected in a committee hearing on five nominees to the Texas Air Control Board. Lt. Gov. Ben Barnes said Saturday he would lay out today or Tuesday the spending bill for the year beginning Sept. 1. He said the Senate's proposed new rules may come up today. The House spending bill will not be back from the printers until Wednesday morning at the earliest, according to a Legislative Budget Board spokesman, and debate in that chamber cannot begin until Saturday. A new 72-hour rule is the cause of the delay. The rule was passed as a reaction to the practice of former Appropriations Committee Chairman W. S. Heatly of giving the spending bill to the House so late in the session it had to be accepted as written or the Legislature would be forced into an expensive special session. Gov. Preston Smith's five nominees to the Air Control Tire Theft, Stolen Car Are Connected Shortly after midnight Saturday night, Weldon Harris, 205 W. Craven, reported to police that some men had stolen his wheel and tire and fled. Soon after, an abandoned car was found in the 200 Block of Thut. A check proved it to be stolen from Farmington, N.M. From descriptions given it was believed to be involved in the incident at Harris' home. A search is on for the men and the car they are believed to be driving. Board appeared before the Senate Nominations Committee last Tuesday, but several committee members voiced dissatisfaction with some of their answers and asked for another hearing. The nominees are Dr. Willie Ulich of Lubbock, Charles Jaynes of Waco, E. W. Robinson of Amarillo, James Abrams of El Paso and John Blair of Kountze. Robinson and Blair were questioned closest. Blair confirmed he had been accurately quoted as saying "poverty smells worse than pollution." Obituaries MRS. SARAH MCCLELLAN Funeral services were to be held at 1 p.m. today in the Church of Christ. McLean, for Mrs. Sarah Mitchner McClellan, 99, who died Saturday at the Golden Spread Nursing Home, Shamrock. David Fultz, church minister, was to officiate, and burial was to be in Hillcrest Cemetery, McLean. Born at Hartsville, Tenn., she was married to James Clark McClellan in 1899 at Corbin, Tex. They moved to the McLean area in 1907 from Oklahoma Indian Territory by covered wagon, ranching north of McLean until Mr. McClellan's death in 1926, when she moved into the town of McLean. She is survived by two daughters, Mrs. W.I. Robinson of McLean and Mrs. Hattie Edwin of Portales, N. M.; one son, Sam McClellan of McLean; 17 grandchildren, 39 great-grandchildren, and 32 great-great-grandchildren. Mainly About People Good Garage sale: Monday-Wednesday. 333 N. Faulkner. (Adv).

Injured Man Now In Fair Condition A 62-year-old Pampa man was listed in satisfactory condition today at Worley Hospital after losing his left leg in an accident Sunday afternoon. L. B. "Bun" Reeves, 715 N. Banks, lost his leg while he was working near an auger about 3:30 p.m. at Heaton Cattle Co., 12 miles east of the city. His leg apparently became entangled in the machine. He was taken by ambulance to Worley Hospital. He underwent surgery, yesterday afternoon with his leg severed below the knee. A tourniquet was placed on Reeves' leg after the accident until the ambulance arrived. Officials said the tourniquet probably helped to save his life. Reeves had been a part time worker at the company's feed mill until Jan. 1, when he was employed full time by the company. R.E. "Red" Horton is credited with saving Reeves' life by applying a tourniquet immediately after the accident, officials said.

Doctor Says 'AA' Best Chance For Alcoholics "A person who consults a physician for treatment of alcoholism or chronic abuse of alcohol can expect both good and bad reports," Dr. J. Foster Elder told an interested group Sunday at a public meeting in the Presbyterian Church Annex. "The good part is that a medical doctor can sober him up so he can resume a normal life in society," he said. "The bad is that the medical doctor cannot prevent him from resuming his heavy drinking." Dr. Elder said extensive research is being made in medical circles to find some treatment that would insure continued sobriety, but so far the most successful thing is the therapy program offered by Alcoholics Anonymous, an organization that has helped thousands of persons since it was founded in 1935 by a doctor and a lawyer who were alcoholics. Dr. Elder said a doctor can predict with remarkable accuracy the course of the alcoholic withdrawal syndrome. The patient suffers nausea, anxiety, fear, disorientation, disturbances of vision and hearing, sensations of crawling on the skin, extreme nervousness, followed by a period of exhaustion, deep depression and sometimes unconsciousness. Complications such as lung failure can mean death unless intensive care is started immediately. The speaker said he would go along with the World Health Organization's definition of an alcoholic: "a person who abuses alcohol to the extent that his health, social and economic functions are impaired." Bill Cooke, a representative of the Texas Commission on Alcoholism, outlined steps being taken by governmental agencies in working with the : judiciary to bring about treatment and rehabilitation of alcoholics. A member of AI-Anon told how she has learned to live with an alcoholic mate by following the steps suggested in the program. Pampa's Action Group of A.A. sponsored Sunday's meeting, the third in a continuing series on the last Sunday of each month. Many Visit Clinic Annex At Hemphill About 120 persons loured the new clinic annex of the Hemphill County Hospital in Canadian yesterday during an open house.

Hemphill County Judge B.F. Conyers and county commissioners Lambnd Beaty and Bryan Eckles were among the officials serving as hosts.

The annex is adjacent to the ; hospital. New facilities include reception room, X-ray rooms, examining rooms, doctors offices and separate suites of offices. The hospital was built about 20 years ago and can take care of about 25 patients, Conyers said. This Week's SPECIAL Good Tues., Wed., Thurs.
