As Before Watergate Cox Lives Same Eccentric Life Helen Hayes Ai B Considers Retiring From Acting Career Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Thurs., July 18, 1974 AYETTEVILLI, ARKANSAS By GUY DARST CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) -Archibald Cox, the 'man · hired and fired by President Nixon as special Watergate prosecutor, has eased back into .the role that seems to suit him best -- a professor, not prosecutor, of law, at Harvard. 'Cox, a victim of what has come to be called the "Saturday Night Massacre" last Oclo- .her, spends his days now grading law papers and lecturing to his students, extolling with occasional sermonettes Hie virtues of fairness and reason. Life for Cox goes on almost as before. Wilh a few exceptions. . Like the lingering stares he gels when he pedals across campus on his bicycle, his tired insistence that no, discuss Watergate, wonder, how, that he cannot and the he could have been the center of a hurricane of national controversy over a major government shakeup. . Cox seems to have made a studied attempt to run his life with the courtly, Yankee good Gov. Hall Says Anthrax Outbreak Is In Check uimor and the slight eccentri- cilies that make him such a distinctive campus figure. He-slill drives a pickup truck ) Harvard Law School. SHOVELS STABLES, He still shovels out the stables at ' the family farm where his wife raises Morgan horses. . : He still gets panned in slu- dcnl reviews o f - ' his teaching style. . , lie slill wears his narrow lapel, slope shoulder suils and but- tondown sliirls. And in a time of wide ties, fat bows or none at all, he still wears his skinny bow lies. · . ' Above it all, there is the talk of fair play and civility that he dwelled on before he became special prosecutor and that he dwells on now. It is the theme of his public speeches. For instance, in his Phi Beta Kappa Oralion at Harvard this spring, Cox compared the tactics of Ihe Senate Watergate committee to those of the late Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy in the 1950s. The committee or its staff 'leaks the result of incomplete nvestigation, gives out Hie accusatory inferences it draws rom secret testimony and even releases proposed findings of guilt upon men under indictment ..." Cox said. Cox is a liberal. But in Ms concern for'his favorite'virtues, lie avoids some of the popular liberal causes. LINKS PHENOMENA '. OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. AP) -- Gov.

In the morning she would be leaving for London to appear with Peter Uslinov in "One of Our Dinosaurs is Missing." It would mark her second Disney produclion and --- she Ihinks -- her last film. "I really must stop all this," she remarked. "It's such an interruption of my life ... I love my homo (in Nyack, N.Y.), I love my house in Mexico. I would like more time lo enjoy Ihem and to do Ihe Ihings I like eels pul upon when you are re luircd to work under such mis crable conditions." Helen Hayes' career has beet honors, inchidin two Academy awards ("Th Sin of Madelon Claudel," 1931 "Airport," 1970). Now sh seeks a more reflective life.

Oil Payments WASHINGTON AP) - The Senate Interior Committee has approved an amendment to :orce the federal government to )av a percentage of offshore oil revenues to stales bordering the drilling sites.

The most notable of those, intil last'year, was! a term dur ing the Kennedy administration as solicitor general. WON'T ENTER POLITICS He maintains Ihere is nothing for him in elective politics.

Bumpers was referring to two bills which were defeated by the General Assembly during Hie- special session. · They dcall with the controversial Environmental Preservation Commission. Bumpers told about 400 persons gathered the meeting here that they had a "keen appreciation for continuing nature of the problem." He said it was difficult lo ex- bad risk I might been a drunk." as well have plain that did not pass NEW YORK XAP) -- The ublic has an. enormous stake n the planned offering of $850 Trillion in securities by Citicorp, vh'ich is the parent of Ihe Firsl Vfaliorial City Bank, second argesl in the nation. Ordinarily a financing of this magnitude by a financial insti- ulion of that size would have itlle or no meaning to the mass if people. Bul this one has poc- :etbopk significance that every- me can'appreciate. 1. If plans proceed, it would provide relatively small savers and investors an opportunity to obtain .some of those high interest rates they've been reading about bul found difficult to obtain. Not the 6 or 7 per cent hey've become accustomed to, but close to 10 per cent. 2. At the same time such an offering might draw savings from the' thrift institutions savings and loan associations and savings banks - and thus reduce the amount of mortgage .oans available lo home buyers. If widely copied by other corporations, critics contend, Tucker To Press For Consumer Protection LITTLE ROCK (AP) Gen. Jim Guy Tucker Ally said Wednesday that he would go to Washington Friday or Monday to urge Sen. J. W. Fulbright, D-Ark., to vole for the c o n s u m e r protection bill currently pending in the Senate He also said he would ask Fulbright to vote for clpture if there is a filibuster a'gainst the bill. The bill,, which has receiver House approval, would create a consumer-protection agency with authorily to inlervene before courts and federal agen cies on behalf of consumei interests. , money-raising techniques ould so dram the nation's fund f mortgage money that the Buying and selling of homes might all but cease. Nobody knows Ibis for certain, because this financing is an innovation into an unknown area. It has startled many money men and banking and securities officials. It has dismayed the thrift institutions. It is attracting the admiration, and maybe the emulation, of olher corpora- lions fighting for funds in a tight-money economy. First National City Bank, the argest member of the Citicorp, couldn't have offered these notes because it is regulated by :he Federal Reserve, which sols imits on the interest rates a ank may pay. A Citicorp offering, however, would serve to sidestep Ihis regulalion. Not limiled to a specified rate, it is offering 9.7 per cent, higher by far than any oank rate. And the funds will be available to the bank as if it had raised them itself. That 9.7 rale under present plans would be guaranteed until June 1, 1975. and thereafter would float one point above the "The Snoop Sisters," the television miniscries in which she slarred with Mildred Natwick last season, hastened Miss Hayes' urge lo relire. "I was miserable doing it," she said. "It was like a jail sentence ... The hours that 'we had to work were terrible, not only for Mildred and myself, but everyone.

Bumpers explained lhal Ihe 100-year-old Arkansas Constitution requires a Ihree-quartcrs vote in each :iouse for the passage of appropriation measures. He said it was unfair lo criti- cie the legislature because the bills failed. "It is hard lo get a. three- fourths majority for any bill." Bumpers said Arkansas land is revealing ilseif to be not limitless and indestriictable as some people may think, but finite and fragile.
