Kokomo Tribune (Newspaper) - September 21, 1969, Kokomo, Indiana Sunday, Sept. 21, 1969 KOKOMO TRIBUNE 17 Seek Nixon Help on Direct Elections WASHINGTON (AP) President Nixon's help is being sought to bolster Louisville Man Pleads [Guilty to Kidnaping NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) Charles I K. England, 31, Louisville, Ky., who is I serving two sentences of life imprison- I rnent in the Kentucky State Prison, pleaded guilty in federal court here Fri- day to a charge of kidnaping an Indiana policeman. Federal Judge Cale J. Holder ordered a pre-sentencing investigation. Patrolman Oren Hyatt of Greenwood, Ind., was kidnapped when he stopped England's car for having faulty tail- lights Jan. 22, 1968. The government charged that Eng- land kidnaped Hyatt in his patroll car, then forced Hyatt to stop another car and abandon the police car. The gov- ernment charged that England forced Hyatt and the occupants of the other car, Michael R. Eaton and Dwight Bur- ton, both 22 of Edinburg, Ind., to ac- company him to New Albany. Hyatt and the Edinburg men were left on the bridge between New Albany and Louisville, which constitutes crossing a state line because the IndianaKentucky line follows the north bank of the Ohio River. England was sentenced to the two life terms in Kentucky where eight armed robbery charges and a parole violation charge were filed against him. ROOT OF EVIL DETROIT, Mich. (AP) Visitors to the Detroit zoo apparently caused the death of Suzie, the famous ostrich in the ..animal-collection. When veterinarians, performed an autopsy following the death of the large bird, pennies, dimes and nickels amounting to were found in the bird's body. Ostriches will eat anything that is shiny, according to Robert Wilson, zoo director. the shaky chances for Senate approval for a constitutional amendment for di- rect popular election of presidents. Nixon has said he favors direct elec- tion but doubts the plan could survive all the obstacles to ratification. "What more evidence does he Sen. Birch Bayh asked Friday at a news conference, referring to House passage of the direct election amend- ment by a surprisingly lopsided vote of .3391070. "If he joins us now with sincerity and enthusiasm and uses all his influence it would be a significant said Bayh. The Indiana Democrat said he is con- fident the direct election proposal has enough votes to clear the Senate Judi- ciary Committee, and enough votes to defeat alternative plans on the floor it- self. "But I cannot honestly say if we do indeed have the necessary two-thirds needed for passage. The situation on the floor is a tenuous he said. Bayh hopes to duplicate what hap- pened in the House: backers of alter- nate plans joined the direct election forces after the alternatives were de- feated. This happened, the senator said, because most realized some sort of re- form is needed. If passed by two-thirds of both houses of Congress, the direct election amend- ment would need approval of three- of the state legislalures to become effective. Bayh was optimistic, pointing to one poll indicating 81 per cent of the public Christian Compassion Urged at Conference Urgent calls for Christian compassion to underscore verbal proclamation of the Gospel characterized the first inter-. denominational U.S. Congress of Evan- gelism in Minneapolis. The six-day event which ended last week was the biggest in modern evan- gelical history. Some delegates from 95 denominations attended. "What we are saying is that the world's only real hope is said Dr. Oswald C. J. Hoffman, "Lutheran Hour" radio preacher and congress keynoter. Hoffman told the delegates, "If you have come here with a passion for Christ but little compassion for people, I pray that you will find something here has heretofore escaped you. If you have come here with a burning feeling for people and little confidence that Christ is the answ- er to the world's problems, dealing di- rectly with its deepest problem of way- wardness and rebellion against God, I trust that here you will make the big- gest discovery of your life." The need for social concern was ex- pressed repeatedly during the congress, and was interpreted by many as repre- senting a major new development among theologically conservative Pro- testants, known among themselves as evangelicals. The Rev. Tom Skinner, a black evan- gelist from New York, urged the pre- dominantly white audience to be willing to make severe sacrifices to combat racism. "The role of the church is to live oblivious to public he said. Skinner is a 27-year-old Harlem gang leader.

As passed by the House, the direct election amendment would abolish the Electoral College, award the presidency to the candidate who wins with 40 per cent or more of'lhe popular vote, and establish a runoff of the top two candi- dates if neither receives 40 per cent. Griswold Says Schools Must Expand To Meet Demand for Lawyers SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) U.S. So- licitor General Irwin N. Griswold pred- icted Friday night that legal services will be provided for more persons by groups employing salaried lawyers. The former dean of the Harvard Law School spoke at the kickoff of a mil- lion program to build a new law center at the University of Notre Dame. Griswold, addressing Notre Dame law alumni and members of the South Bend bar, said more lawyers will be em- ployed by organizations to provide serv- ices to more people on a more efficient basis. He also said law schools with enroll- ments between 200 and 400 must ex- pand. "This size law school is a luxury which cannot and ought not to be af- forded in our present he said. Griswold said more lawyers are need- ed and it is important for most public and private law schools to survive. Notre Dame plans to expand its law school enrollment from 268 to 600 dur- ing the next five years, increase the faculty from 13 to 25 and enlarge the law library from volumes to volumes.
