Racing Commission Won't Ad With Release Of Edited Tapes To Revoke Southland Franchise LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- The Arkansas Racing Commission probably will not move lo re- .voke the franchise of Ihe South- 1 'land Racing Corp. if an appeal - is lodged with the U.S. Supreme Court contesting .the upheld . conviction of Emprise Corp of . N c i y York, t h e commission -chairman said Sunday. . H -,, M - Orsnurn Jr. of Dardanelle, Racing Commission chairman, said the commission -.would discuss the matter at its meeting May 23 al Wes -Memphis. ''·· ,, Tllc Commercial Appeal a Memphis newspaper, rcporlcd Sunday that t h e commission · ; apparently would not move lo .. revoke the franchise until any -. appeal process is completed, ;; ·. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in California had upheld the Emprise conviction last week. Emprise owns about 46 per cent cf Southland's West , Memphis Greyhound track. .; Emprise was convicted of ....conspiracy to violate the law ·· -prohibiling interstate and foreign travel or transporation in the aid of iliegaj gambling violations ol t h a t law " *; Although Orsburn said he ·:.'really didn't know what I h e ;-''commission would deckle he ·;«aid he thought it would "wait -iinlil all actions are final until we cio anything about it A f t e r all appeals are exhausted, the commission then would act." lie said. He said . he could not predict what aciion ... would lake place. "'- 1 In 1972, the commission voted : -,-to revoke Soulhland's franchise ·.·following Ihe conviction unles: the Buffalo, N. Y., firm di . vested its stock in Ihe Grey '·- hound track. -._ The Pulaski County Circui Court reversed the commissioi ,-r.,prdcr, and another order wa: issued last January, conlinuini he matter "until a date ollowing the decision of the Circuit Court of Appeals," The Pulaski County court said he 1972 order violated the constitutional rights of Emprise in that it was conditional on the )onviction of Emprise being upheld in California. Alston Jennings of Little :o!d the Commercial Appeal he issumed an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court would be at- .empted. He said the New York firm probably would seek a rehearing before the California ippeals court and if that is denied, proceed with the high court appeal.

Nixon had been vir- lly impenetrable. "Jow that privacy is punc- red, and by his own hand, ilemishes and all," Nixon id as he announced he would eld and publish edited trail- ripts of his conversations lout Watergate. Blemishes there are, and am- juities, embarrassments, bru- candor, just as he said. Jot (hat those outside the ·al Office see a com- ehensiye picture of the Nixon rsonality. But it is a look far oser than ever before, and it replete with contradictions to e Nixon traits long shown to e public at large. As seen through his self- ecorded conversations, Nixon a President and a man often nely, indecisive, rambling. The transcripts reflect more csidcntial questions than esidential orders. They show man who often seeks the re isuranee of those around him. "I just don't know how it is ing to come out." he said to R. (Bob) Haldeman in a tele- lone call -the night of April 14, 73. "That is the whole point, nd I just don't know." In the recorded conversa- ons. Nixon at times exhibits uspicion not only of adver- ries but of friends. His mem- ry seems to fail him from one onversation to the next, even ersation is peppered with pro- crsation is peppered w tn pro- nity, although most of the ex- otives are deleted from the riited reruns. Nixon knew that the tape ecorders were running. He had lem installed. But the candor l many of the transcripts in icates that he paid no heed to int. perhaps that he had for- otten they were there. In any vent, they were not intended public consumption. The Watergate scandal changed hat. At face value, it is so re- arkable a glimpse of the in- er Nixon that it could prove Imost as crucial to his cher- hed place in history as the idgment reached on the issue NEW YORK STOCKS al hand, his culpability In the Watergate scandal. The isolation has been stripped from both the office and the man. leaving a mortal at a helm ordinarily reserved 'or heroes. Richard Nixon liked the isola- -ion of the presidency. His critics have long claimed e was too isolated, too private. Nixon himself addresses the subject in the transcripts, at least as it applies to protecting him from the scandal. "The main thing," Nixon told counsel John W. Dean III, '" ... the isolation of the presidency ... because that, fortunately, is totally true." At another point. John D. Ehrlichman and Haldeman were discussing the various White House aides who had knowledge relating to Watergate. "There were 8 or 10 people around here who knew," said Ehrlichman. "Bob knew, I knew, all kinds of people knew." And for a moment, in thai April 14 conversation, Nixon semed to be saying that he did, too. Nixon: "Well, I knew it, I snew it." Ehrlichman: "And it was-not a question of whether --" Nixon: "I must say, though, I didn't know it but I must have assumed it though but you know, fortunately -- I t h a n k you both for arranging it that nay and it does show the isolation of the President, and here it's not so bad ..." Even before Nixon coulc claim his solitude in the Oval Office, he guarded his privacy well. Aside from a storied out burst in California 12 years ago, the public saw only an im age under control, whether ii be the Old Nixon or, as politics times changed, the New. And beneath that leading edge o Nixon the politician was a per sonalily always remote. He wore a flag in his lapel He was punctual, orderly, rare ly moving on impulse and al most never overstaying a visit He dressed conservatively, blue suit, white shirt, blue tie. am even wore dress slacks anc shoes while walking the surf He professed not to understand rock music, but he frequently would summon his dog. Kinj Timahoe, and sit by a blazini fire to the strains of "Victor; at Sea" or "The King and I.' le went dancing exactly once, on the night of his second in- uguration. "We are so (expletive de- eted) square that we get ·aught at everything," Haldeman once remarked to Nixon amid the Watergate trauma. It appeared even that Nixon was a shy man. Some saw it as modesty; others as inborn nervousness. The ranscripts often indicate dcfen- iveness.. It has been claimed by Nix- jn's supporters that the thinking which produced the Watergate break-in, the d i r t y tricks. he enemies list, was generated not from the lop but by young, misguided zealots on the staff. Yet, this remark by Nixon to John Dean on Sept. 15, 1972: 'Nobody is a friend of ours! Jet's face it! Don't worry about that sort of tiling." And again, to Dean: "I want he most comprehensive notes on all those who tried to do us n- They didn't have to do it. They are asking for it and they are going to get it." Later, he declares his opponents "are gong to lie around and squeal." Whether Nixon intended those remarks and others like t h e m to be taken literally is. like sc much else, ambiguous. None theless, it is clear that this is a side of Nixon which does no! conform with the one pre viously held up to the public. In his debates with John F Kennedy 14 years ago, Nixon assailed Harry S. Truman's sal iy language, saying that "who ever is President is going to be a man that all children o America look up to or look down on, and I can only say ' am very proud that Presiden Eisenhower restored dignit and decency and, frankly, good lanuage to the conduct of the presidency of the United States "And I only hope should win this election that ... when ever any mother or father talk to his child, he can look al the man in the White House, am whatever he may think of hi policies, he will say, 'Well there is a man who maintain the kind of standards person ally that I would want my chili to follow.' " The model he described in 1960 does not match the man who emerges from the page released Tuesday. The publi' Nixon sometimes misspok, himself, once slipped to th xint of describing some of the natrons on the banquet circuit s dogs. · i But aides said he allowed limself "only an occasional lamn" in private conversation; ever lost his temper, exhibited 10 more t h a n "controlled impa- icnce." / True, Ihcrc are only occasion- 1 damns in Ihe transcripts, 'hal word wouldn't fit where lie frequent "expletive elected" notations appear. Nixon ends one conversation iy saying: "(Kxpletive deleted) t." As for controlled impatience, here are these passages: 'Have you kicked a few butts .round?" And "I am not going o screw around with this." Or, q press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler: "I'm so sick of this lung. I want lo gel il done with and over. And I don't want to lear about il again." Nixon's spokesmen have described him as a man of consummate organization, one who comes to grips quickly with any )roblcm, and conserves both .ime and words. They told of Mixon sitting at Camp David or his hideaway suite in the Executive Office Building, armed with the facts at hand and a apful of yellow legal pads, and spelling out clear, concise commands. The tapes indicate that, at least, in the case of the Wa- :ergate scandal, that is not the way Ihe worked. Nixon While House Nixon's silver lining in the cloud of Watergate. There arc, o be sure, indications lhat he :ondoned the cover-up -- and here are indications t h a t he did not. There is also the 3m- tression lhal he never f u l i y ·asped Ihe issue. On March 21, 1973. expressing concern lhat aides might face criminal charges. Nixon said: "I don't give a damn about .he publicity. We could rock hat through thai if we had lo et Ihe whole damn thing hang out and it would be a lousy story for a month. But I can take it. The point is. I dnn't want any criminal liabilities." On that morning. Dean told Nixon quite specifically about Ihe secret delivery of cash to Watergate defendants. That afternoon, Nixon asked for the details all over again. John Dean toki the Seriate Watergate committee over a year ago that "While the President was involved .. he did nol realize or appreciate at any time the implications of his involvement." Remoras Used As Hunters One of t h e world's most unusual fishing methods uses another fish...not as a lure, but as a hunter! Many seashore-dwelling people throughout the world have long used sucker disc Instead, they show a President who is heavily dependent upon his aides, not only for raw information but for guidance; one who frequenlly seems confused and forgetful; one who lingers on a minor point for minutes at a time and who, in the end, often appears reluctant to make a decision. Nixo tils in an April 14 exchange with Ehrlichman of his determination to fight lo keep Haldeman on the staff. Having said that, Nixon solic- Nixon tells in an April 14 exits Ehrlichman's reassurance on lhat decision no fewer lhan six times in the same conversation. "Am I wrong?" asks the President. "Well, maybe I am not right ... Is there something to be said for that, or not? Well, people make mistakes, but you don't fire a guy for a mistake, do you?" Such ambivalence may be . Dean added; "When the facts come out. I hope Ihe President is forgiven." Whether Nixon is ultimately adjudged in that light, of course, is in .the hands of Congress and the nation. But even if he is one day disemburdened of Watergate, he can never reclaim the revelations aboul the private Nixon in those 1,254 pages. .His once-proud and secure isolation is scarred for- a rcmora, a ·inc fish with a atop ils head. . lo seek oul and capture billfish, sharks, rays, even turtles. Modern anglers often find ·cmpras allachcd to sharks and billfish, and think Ihe smaller 'ish are parasites. A mistake, since the rcmora is actually only a hitchhiker going along for the ride. He hopes to catch a few stray crumbs of whatever the larger fish is eating. Using remoras as hunter fish' is known to date beyond iolumbus' discovery of the new world. In 1501. Peler M a r t y r published an account of Cuban Indians catching sea turtles with remoras. It is believed lhat Martyr got his infonnalion from Columbus. The story relates that the Arawak Indians kept a supply ol remoras penned in shallow water and released them wilh lines tied to their tails when turtles were sighted offshore. Over the years other reports of remoras used in similar endeavors have come from Soulh America, Auslralia and China. Otic observer tells of watching Australian aborigines lying a line through a hole in Ihe tail releasing sharks nearbv. of a rcmora, the fish to and catch REUPHOLSTERY SPECIAL!

(Al 1 ) -Gov. Dale Bumpers said Saturday that he would violate his own basic beliefs if he replied lo attacks on his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate. Sen. J. W, Fulbright. whom Bumpers is opposing for Ihe nominalion, has called Bumpers' campaign "phony" and has said Bumpers had no real plal- form. Bumpers, however, never mentions Fulbright's name in his campaign speeches. When people ask him to name the differences between himself and the senator, he usually answers with a short variation on his campaign theme--that foreign a f f a i r s are not the overriding issues now facing the United States and that domestic issues are more important. Bumpers said he saw no need to defend himself against Kul- bright's charges because he said it is more Important to talk aboul the problems facing the country. "The real issue Is whether or not the people believe what I say about these problems," e added. We think you're Worth it!
