Mills Is Pushed For Campaign Sources LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Congressional candidate Judy Pet,y of Little Rock said Saturday .bat she planned to ask Special Watergate Prosecutor Leon Jaworski to investigate if her opponent. Hep. Wilbur D. .Mills. D-Ark.. did not m a k e a f u l l disclosure of the contributions to his 1072 presidential campaign." At a news conference, Mrs. Petty, a Republican, said she believed Mills, chairman of the House Ways and iMeaus Committee, had both a political and moral obligation to reveal the sources of the contributions, flut. she .said, he might not he legally required to do so. "As the man who is responsible lor all our tax legislation," she said. "I find it hard to understand why he is so hesitant to reveal who bis contributors were. 1 believe the people need to know who might have made big contributions in the hopes of getting some favored tax treatment." Mrs. Petty said she though! the amount Mills spelt must have been "in the hundreds of thousands of dollars." She also said she would like 'or Mills to disclose how much unrcported [unds were raised for him by James W. Riddell.

Scientists working on new ways to improve the world's food supply have discovered that, after treatment by a special enzyme, protein from such vegetables as soybeans, alfalfa and cotton seed becomes soluble in almost any consumable liquid. Vegetable protein could, therefore, be added to plain tap water, making it an even richer source of protein than milk. cfils for his clients, benefits which my opponent is in a posi- .ion to grant to special interest lobbies or to big campaign con- :ributors." She contended lhat Riddell also was an employe of Mills on the Ways and Means Committee and that Riddell had loaned Mills $17.000 for his presidential campaign. "My opponent says he does not know about such things." she said. "I find that hard to believe. That story was not sufficient for Richard Nixon, and it is not sufficient for Wilbur Mills. If he's not responsible enough to know, then he's not responsible enough to ask you to send him back for his 37th and 38th years in Congress." Mrs. Petty also said that of the contribitions Mills had reported, the second largest special interest contribution to his presidential campaign came from the brewery industry. She quoted Robert Schmidt, president of Olynpia Brewing Co. in Washington as saying. 'Being in the brewing in- uslry, you have to play both ides of the street.
