Dec wheat 4.37 McSpadden Faces Boren In Runoff By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Nominations for two Senate seats are on the line today in elections in Washington and Oklahoma. In Washington's primary, Democratic Sen. Warren. .G. Magnuson has only token opposition from perennial candidate John Patric as the 69-year-old chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee seeks renom- ination to the post he has held for 30 years. State Sen. Jack Metcalf, who was swamped by Magnuson six years ago, and C.Y. Jesse Chaing, a professor of political science at Seattle Pacific Coir lege, were considered the front- runners in a field of six trying for the Republican nomination. In Oklahoma's Democratic primary run-off, former Rep. Ed Edmondson and Charles Nesbitt, chairman of the State Corporation Commission, are matched for the right to meet the GOP Senate nominee, incumbent Henry L. Bellmon, in November. Oklahoma Democrats also choose between state Rep. David Boren, 33, and Rep. Clem R. McSpadden, 48, for their party's gubernatorial nomination, with the winner meeting Republican state Sen.

An information filed in U.S. District Court by the special Walergale prosecutor's office said Lyles handed out phony bonuses to selected employes, who were required to return the money to a special fund which was in turn contributed to Nixon political committees. From July 20, 1971, to April 6, 197Z, LBC W, Inc., was accused of making total illegal contributions to Nixon's campaign of $10.000. A lawyer for the special prosecutor's office said the information and guilty plea were agreed to based upon the absence of any direct trade-off between the firm's government contracts and the political contributions. The pleas were the 15th from an individual and 13lh from a corporation growing out of the 1972 presidential campaign. Lyles said following a brief hearing before Chief U.S. District Judge George L. Hart that his firm does work for the federal government throughout the Southeast. Lyles was personally named in the information as contributing $7,000 illegally. A spokesman for the prosecutor's office had no immediate explanation as t o , w h y the corporation was accused of contributing $10.000 and Lyles $3,000 less. A lawyer for the special prosecutor's office said the guilty plea does not preclude possible further prosecution by the Internal Revenue Service or the Student Senate Condemns Ford For Nixon Pardon A resolution condemning President, Gerald It. Ford's action in pardoning former President Richnrrl Nixon was unproved on a vote of 26-14 by the University ot Arkansas Student Semite last week. The resolution snid the Presidential pardon raised serious national questions concerning equal justice, a possible "double standard" f o r application of the law and served "only to cloud with suspicions, rather than undo, the maze of the Watergate quagmire." The pardon occurred before the court system had the opportunity to fully play its lawfu role in the administration ant application of justice, the resolution said. The resolution ended by saying 'that "we, the Student Senate, hereby condemn Presi dent Gerald R. Ford's act ol presidential pardon for Mr Nixon as premature and as po tentially detrimental to our system of equal justice am mercy for all:" Securities and Exchange Corn- Machines Vandalized SPRINGDALE -- Severa coin game machines were broken into at the Sprlngdale Youth Center during the week end.

But this irritation ebbed when Haig was recalled to the White House after five months. He then retired from the service. In the months before Nixon resigned, Haig drew criticism for his sometimes passionate defense of the president. After Gerald R. Ford became Pdesident, there were reports of tension between Ford's staff and Haig and his aides. Like his predecessors, Haig probably will delegate day-today functions as commander of U.S. forces in Europe to his deputy, currently Air Force Gen. George J. Eade, in Stuttgart, Germany. That will leave Haig free for [he demanding job of supreme NATO commander, which experts says requires diplomacy, persuasion and great tact to maintain harmony among the many national military leaders in the alliance.
