Yuma Daily Sun, The (Newspaper) - June 16, 1967, Yuma, Arizona Yuma Welcomes State VFW Conventioneers Editor's Notebook Senators Can Judge Behavior By JONES OSBORN Will the .Senate please 'come to order? The Senate has before it a r e c o m- mendation to censure Sen. Dodd of Con- necticut for using cam- paign funds for his per- sonal ex- penses. And for collecting i twice .for cer- tain travel .expenses once from Uncle Satti and once again from pri- vate organizations. A bi-partisan committee three Democrats and three Re- publicans, chaired by a Demo- crat recommended censure. The bi-partisan committee said Sen. -Dodd's conduct was "contrary 'to accepted morals, derogates from the public tr.ust expected of a senator, and tends to bring the Senate into dis- honor and; disrepute." If Dodd's feUow senators fail to censure him, the reason most likely will be that-, the Senate does not have a WRITTEN code of ethics.j But even before the Dodd case is disposed oft another1 one has cropped up. We now hear that Sen; Edward V. Long of Missourii used his much-publi- cized hearings on wiretapping to advance the interests of James Hoffa of the Teamsters. It is charged that Sen. Long re- ceived for services from a St.. Louis Lawyer who later was employed by Hoffa. Team- ster funds were used to help elect Sen. Long. I am not, in these remarks, passing judgment on either man. But one thing does seem clear: i The absence of a WRITTEN code of. ethics should not be used as "an excuse for failing to resolve the Dodd and Long cases. The Senate is well qual- ified to judge whether such ac- tions tend to bring the Senate into dishonor. Body of Girl, 13, Found at Parker The body of a 13-year-old girl who drowned in the river near Parker last night was found late this morning by Dep- uty Wayne Sanasac, diver for the Yuma County Sheriff's Office. Sanasac told The Sun that he found the body in some 20 feet of water about 75 feet off the shore at Blue Water Marina. The girl, Consuelo Carrillo of Parker, who could not swim, had been floating on an inner- tube with a group of other chil- dren at the time ol the- inci- dent. A boat towing a skier went by and witnesses said the wake turned the innertube over. Deputy Sanasac said that be- cause of the number of boats on the river at the time it was im- possible to determine which boat caused the wake. The dep- uty recovered the body after a half hour search. The Marina is located about two miles northeast of, Parker on tlie Colo- rado River. Kennedys Set PAGE (AP) Sen.
