Chicago Tribune Calls For Nixon To Step Down CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Tribune said In an editorial in its Thursday editions that President Nixon's "departure, one way or the other. Is the best course for the presidency, the country and the free world." The Tribune laid that since President Nixon has rejected the course of resignation, "we urge the House to act quickly on a bill of impeachment. As the impeachment process progresses, as public opinion becomes clear, and as Mr. Nixon sees support dwindling in the Senate, he will have to reconsider his stand and recognize that resignation will spare the country the ordeal of a trial." The newspaper, which has given Nixon strong support in the past, said, "We saw the public man in his first administration and we were impressed Now in about 300,000 words we have seen the private man and we are appalled...."

Thurv, May 9. 1974 ·) 39-Film Wellman Festival Set Old Directors Never Die r They Get Revived By BOB THOMAS LOS ANGELES (AP) 'Most motion picture directors are a little screwy. I know that fliers are, and I have been both, so draw your own con' elusions." The writer is William A. Wellman, whose 75 movies included "Wings," "Public Enemy." "Call of the Wild," "A Star Is Born," "Nothing Sacred," "Beau Geste," "The Oxbow Incident," "Story of G.I. Joe" (his favorite). "Battleground" and 'The High and the Mighty." Also such bombs as "Lady of Burlesque." "The Next Voice You Hear." "Westward the Women" and "Lafayette Escadrille" (his last, in 1958). He wrote: "A bad picture is like a frightful birthmark on your face -- it never leaves you, first run, second run. reruns, TV prime time, late time, lousy time; it's always there for people to stare at unbelievingly or turn away from or worse still turn off, or should that be better still? "It's your eternal badge ol embarrassment." During his 38 years as a di rector, Wild Bill Wellman earned his name, laughing, trawling and bulling his way hrough 75 movies, five marriages, countless feuds and many friendships. Now 78 and as feisty as ever despite a long battle with arthritis, the director is enjoying a belated spotlight. Wednesday night marked the start of a 39 film Wellman festival at the Royal Theater in West Los Angeles, organized by :he director's actor-son, William Jr., and sponsored by Tom Laughlin ("Billy Jack"), who was hired by Wellman for "Lafayette Bscadrille." Hawthorne is publishing Wellman's memoirs, "A Short Time for Insanity," a remarkable confessional that ranks among the best books about Hollywood. It is not easily read. In parts it is as circuitous as "Finnegan's Wake." This is because Wellman chose to write it dur- School Lunch Program WASHINGTON (AP) -- The House has approved supporting the school lunch program with funds traditionally used to buy s u r p l u s agricultural commodities. ng a drug-laden recuperation rom serious illness, and his fantasies mix with past reality. But Wellman is a superbly irreverent storyteller, as anyone an tell from a list of his screen credits. Wellman is toughest on himself, but he saves some barbs :or fellow workers during his studio years. He relates a long binge by Spencer Tracy, whom he describes as "freaky -- the bottle never made him high, it always made him miserably low." Louis B. Mayer, the autocrat of MGM studios, reminded Wellman of a praying mantis, which feeds upon other insects and clasps its prey in forelimbs as if in prayer." Wellman's fifth marriage, to Busby Berkeley dancer Dorothy Coonan, in 1933 took. They have seven children and 12 grandchildren. In recent years Wellman has spent his lime enjoy ing his family, enduring constant pain (he broke his back in a World War I plane crash) drinking only beer ((* was nol what you'd call a good drink er"), and writing. He's already working on « second memoir, "Growing 01 Disgracefully." Clinton Sees Beef Standard Discrepancy Bill Clinton, candidate for th« Democratic nomination for Congress from Arkansas' Third District, stated that an apparent discrepancy exists between federal standards for domestic beef as opposed to imported beef. Clinton said why should Arkansas cattlemen be expected to meet "high standards" when the federal government allows much lower standards for imported beef. He said to a group of Washington County cattlemen that, "It seems unfair to me for the federal government to expect Arkansas cattlemen to meet high standards in the production of quality beef, then to turn around and allow the importing, from foreign countries, of much lower quality beef which, of course, costs less and hurts our farmers financially." "I think the Congress should act to do away with the unfair disadvantages which Arkansas cattlemen must bear today. Asto. I question whether all th|s lower quality imported beef ; s as pure as it ought to be for the health and safety of our citizens," Clinton stated.
