AJHCANUS Cards Hammer Chicago CHICAGO (AP) -- Lynn McGiothen, rapidly becoming the ace of ttw St. Louis Cardinals' pitching staff, wasn't as sharp as usual Sunday--but he still had no trouble smoking his way past the Chicago Cubs. The 24-year-old righthander, acquired in a trade last winter from the Boston Red Sox, set down the Cubs 7-1 to boost his record to S-2. "He wasn't as sharp as usti al," said Manager Red Schoendienst. "He had trouble getting his curvebalt over." McGiothen, despite his troubles, had a one-hitter going for seven innings before the Cubs broke through with a run in the eight hinning to ruin his bid for a shutout. The only hit had been an in field single to deep short by Dave Rosello in the third in ning, while the Cardinals bang' ed away a 6-0 lead before the Cubs could get on the board. McGiothen came to the Car dinals along with pitchers John "Our scouts, especially Mo Mozzali, like him very much," aid Schoendienst. "Mo. who ollowed him from the time he was with Louisville, said he ad a helluva arm and was worth taking a chance on. I ·ward that he had control rouble but it really wasn't that i»d when you checked the ecord. After all, you can't have super stuff all the time." McGiothen was 8-7 with the Red Sox in 1972 and slipped to ·2 last year when he ran into all kinds of trouble. "I had to wait a while before : got a start last year and wice I got bombed out," said McGiothen. "I was sent down o get a lot of work and then lad to have a knee operation so ! missed most of the season.

The «moodw*t Kcntocky Bourboa ToaH «wr know. tmm mmm rnrna-« «»·« ·»·» aw* TO ALL VOTERS OF WASHINGTON COUNTY Dear Voter: As you are probably aware, 1 am a candidate for trie Democratic nomination for Sheriff of Washington County, Arkansas. Let me assure you that I am not a politician. My entrance into this race is motivated solely by my awareness of the problems now existing and my very serious concern that Washington County be served by a Sheriff who is efficient, qualified and reliable. After my experience as a Deputy Sheriff under the incumbent, I found that I could not reconcile my personal sense of right and wrong with what was, and according to the Grand Jury report, still is happening in the office of Washington County's leading law enforcement officer. My disagreement with his thinking led to my separation from the Sheriff's office, and I went into private enterprise in the field where I am best qualified-LAW ENFORCEMENT. As a result, in the recent past, 1 have been a part owner of a privately owned industrial security organize ton which has provided security service to many of the more important industries and businesses in our area, and I have likewise provided private investigative services to those who chose to avail themselves of my services. Because of my strong feelings about sound administration of public office, I have decided to run for Sheriff of Washington County. I no longer have any interest in any former businesses as I am devoting full time to this campaign. This involves a financial sacrifice for me, but I have been raised in this community and the citizens have treated me well. When other people can sacrifice their time and energy to be members of the Board of Directors of this City, to serve on its various boards and commissions or otherwise discharge a civic duty, I-feel that I, still a relatively young man, have an obligation yet to fulfill in the public interest, and being familiar with the operation of the Washington County Sheriff's office, I feel that this is where my duty lies. I am a graduate of Fayetteville High School with three years of college at the University of Arkansas. I have completed my military service in the United States Army with the 306th Civil Affairs Group. I was a Washington County Deputy Sheriff for two years. I completed the Seminar in Public Safety, Texas Technological University in 1970. I am a graduate-of the Arkansas Law Enforcement Training Academy; further, I am a graduate of the United States Department of Justice Course in Identification and Classification of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs. I am a member of the Arkansas Law Enforcement Officers Association, a graduate of the Criminal Procedure Course conclusively by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and I have taken the Criminal Procedure Course at the University of Arkansas School of law at Fayetteville. Arkansas. I believe these facts will amply demonstrate my qualifications and my sincerity. I am asking you to support me in my effort to become the democratic nominee for Sheriff and you therefore have a right to know what I stand for. So let me pledge to you that if I am elected: 1. The Sheriff's office will provide efficient County law enforcement to all areas of Washington County. NO SECTION WILL BE NEGLECTED IN FAVOR OF ANOTHER. I will place o responsible Deputy on permanent duty in every.major community in the County, and he will work with and cooperate with any local police who may have jurisdiction. 2. The Sheriff's office will be operated with honesty and integrity and the accour-' of that office will be open to public inspection. There will be no use of public prope r for private purposes. No prisoner in my custody will be released after having been arrested unless so ordered by the court. Nor will there be any "disappearances" o f property held either in trust for the public or as evidence in prosecution. 3. No evidence of any nature will be suppressed or minimized in an effort to *=-us- trate the ends of justice, and no prisoners will be held in jail beyond the period of time in which they should be presented to the Court for arraignment for the purpose of profiting from the $2 per day food allowance which the Sheriff currently receives. 4. No private utility bills will be paid out of public funds while I am Sheriff of Washington County. 5. I will pay all gasoline bills incurred for my private use or that of members of my family with my money and not the County's. 6. At any regular and specified times I will make myself available in every mqjor community in Washington County to discuss with the citizens any problem the community may have. There are many other areas of law enforcement that I would like to discuss with you but I hope that this letter will help you to understand my position on these matterss without the necessity of my pointing theem out specifically. To summerize, let me say that I am seeking the democratic nomination as Sheriff of Washington County because I sincerely believe that high personal and professional qualifies MUST be restored to this office. I believe that I hove these qualifications. I con assure you that my motives are sincere, and I represent no one other than the voters of Washington County. Will you please support me in my effort to obtain the nomination. Sincerely' BILL MURRAY tol. Ad Md far »r T*
