   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - January 5, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                The Cedar Rapids Gazelle: Sat., Jan. 5, 1974 Watergate, Tight Money Plague Republicans Seeking Reagan's Job By BUI Stall SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Watergate, intraparty intrigu and tight campaign money ar plaguing California Republican as they seek a winning can didate to succeed Gov. Ronali Reagan. At one point, at least five Republicans were considers possible gubernatorial can didates. But the field for next June's GOP primary could be nar rowed to two Lt. Gov. EC Reinecke and state Contralto Houston Flournoy, both formal ly announced. The filing dead line is March 8. Intrigue The intrigue involves efforts of a small group of influentia Reagan backers to inject a new candidate into the campaign Such attempts have threatenec to seriously split the party for the first time since Reagan be- came governor on Six months ago, Atty. Gen Evelle Younger, 55, was consid- ered a sure bet to run. Now, Younger says it's a toss-up whether he will seek the gover- norship or run for a seconc term as attorney general. Younger told newsmen the chief factors are the spin-offs ol Watergate, adding that any Re- publican who thinks Watergate will have no impact on the 1974 state election is foolish. Raising the money needed to wage an effective campaign, will be exceedingly, difficult, saic Younger. Many big GOP cam- paign donors simply have decid- ed to contribute nothing, he said. The betting now. is that Younger will take the safe course and seek re-election. Draft Effort An effort by some key Reagan supporters to draft Health, Edu- cation and Welfare Secretary Caspar Weinberger has failed. And, it now appears that former presidential counselor Robert Finch, 48, will not run for governor either. While Finch has never been implicated in Watergate in any fashion, sources close to him consider his long-time associa- tion with President Nixon a handicap., Jfinch also is. con- cerned nation's eco- nomic problems will rub off on Republicans as an issue during 1974. Reagan Neutral Reagan says he' has heen neu- tral in the intraparty -scramble for his job. So have most of his supporters and advisers, he says. But several important Repub- licans closely identified with Reagan have made no secret of their apprehension about Rein- ecke's prospects of winning in 1974 even though he once was considered the unofficial GOP heir apparent to Reagan. The mam concern now is where an investigation of the In- ternational Telephone.and Tele- graph Co. scandal might lead. Reinecke and former Atty. Gen WASHINGTON (UPI) De- spite the jet fuel shortage and light cutbacks, the nation's air- ines carried more than 200 mil- ion passengers in 1973, a 5 per- cent increase over the year be- 'ore, the Air Transport Assn. [ATA) said Thursday. For the first time since 19G7, no U.S. airlines were hijacked. Between 1968, and 1971, hijack- ngs averaged 29 a year. Airline accidents claimed 203 ives in 1973. In 1972, the total vas 190. But the ATA said 1973 vas the 22nd consecutive year n which the passenger fatality ate per 100 miles flown was jelow 1.0. For the 12-month period ending Sept. 30, the airline in- dustry showed a net profit of ?226 million, compared to million for the same period in 1972. The government originally or- lered a 25 percent cutback in et fuel allocation for the air- Road Reports The following numbers may f be calledjor f> way Cedar Rapids, (319) 366-1884 444-5288 Cedar Falls....

Split with Manager Any development from Wash- ington that would cripple Rein- ecke's candidacy would leave California conservatives without a major candidate for governor. Flournoy, a former college pro- fessor ,and state legislator, is considered a moderate. Reinecke's campaign manag- er, former White House aid Lyn Nofziger. quit last wee after he and Reinecke public! announced they had irrecoi cilablc differences over how th campaign should be run. Nofziger, a veteran of Califoi nia polities, said GOP prospect next falldepend on a number o factors, including how badl Democrats are split in their ow wide-open June primary fo governor. He added, "If you're in th middle of impeachment pro ceedings in Washington next Op tober, I suppose the whole Re publican party all over th country will be devastated." Airlines Report Growth Despite Fuel Shortages lines, a move airline official predicted would force layoffs and a cutback of flights. Last week, the governmen sealed down the size of the je fuel cut and allowed the airlines to get 95 percent of the jet fue used in 1972. Many of the airlines said the new allocations would allow them to review some of the planned layoffs and flight cut- backs. But the ATA said "airline traffic and capacity growth in the last two months of the year was seriously affected by the cutbacks." By the end of the year, "the airlines had been required be- cause of the energy crisis to eliminate some daily de- the ATA said. But the ATA said the cutbacks and fuel conservation measures )y the airlines had resulted in iavings of more than 1 billion gallons of fuel in 1973.

An overweight person may be osing as much as a year or every pound of fat, saic ?obert Half, president of a Ma- i s o n avenue agency with 'ranches in 43 American cities. A survey conducted by a o z e n of Half's branches howed: Among executives in the salary range, ine percent were more than 10 iounds overweight; In the executive ange, 39 percent were more lan 10 pounds heavier than the tandards of normal weight es- ablished by insurance compa- ies. Half attributed the finding to prejudice against the over- weight and what he held to be a alse belief that they are not as ood workers as slim persons. The overweight, Half said, are nfairly stereotyped as slow, 'oppy, inefficient and overin- ulgent. When important, high- aying jobs are at stake and andidates are under close scru- ny, the overweight are less kely to be hired or promoted nto them, he said. Half, who is 5-10 and weighs 50 pounds, said his agencies requently are asked specifical- for slim job candidates, but emembers only one company n 25 years that wanted a plump xecutive. The company was a maker of outsize apparel. the Birds Amana Wafer Rates Up, Eleeirie Down DES MOINES tUPI) The Iowa commerce commissior Friday authorized an increase in water rates but a decrease in electric rates for the Amana So ciety Service Co. In its order, the commissior said the water rate increase would total and set the electric rate drop at The commission said the revisec rate schedule would provide a justifiable rate of return of 10 percent for the company. The ICC entered the case when a customer complainec that the electric operations of the Amana company were pro- viding an excessive rate of re- turn. A commission investiga- tion indicated that while the re- turn on the electric operation appeared to be high, the earnec return on the water operation was too low. The company proposed a 65 percent increase in water rates and 12 percent decrease in elec- tric rates, but the commission adjusted those figures slightly.

P) "They promised me it would be permanent. 1 paid enough price for a permanent place, and if they Iry lo move my doggies, they'll have a fight on their hands." Lenna Lawson is one of doz- ens of Oklahoma City residents saddened and angry at the sale of the Avalon Pet cemetery. The new owner says persons with sets buried there will have mv :il July lo move the remains at their own expense. No Intention Walter E. Hume sold the cem- etery to Bill Iligginbotham, who said he has no intention of oper- ating a pet cemetery. Higgin- botham said he wanted the land 'to go with some more land I'm jutting together" alongside an expressway. Hume said: "I never made any promises except that we Manned to operate it only as a jot cemetery as long as we own- ed the property. "I haven't misled anyone. It continued to he a pet cemetery as long as I had the property and what happens now is not my problem The cemetery is only about 10 by 150 feet in size but is >art of a six-acre tract Hume sold to Iligginbotham. It is lo- cated in a mainly residential irea in the southeast section of he city. Buried Higginbotham quoted Hume as saying animals were juried at Avalon. The cemetery vas opened in 1950. Mrs. Lawson said Wednesday :he has five dogs buried at Avalon. She said she paid each for the first two burials, 50 each for the next two "and lie price had gone up to for he last one, in April." Higginbotham said he planned o notify persons who have pets juried there "and give, them six nonths to move the pets. "I had my attorney check this whole thing inside out before buying the property, and I don't Ihink there really is any re- quirement, but 1 thought I'd give people a chance to move their animals if they want to." He added that he would not reimburse any owners for the cost of removal. Turner: Gov. Ray Lacks Authority To Lower Speed DES MOINES Gov. Robert D. Ray said Friday he will have to comply with Iowa Attorney General Richard Turner's opinion which said the governor lacks authority to lower speed limits on state roads. Ray said he asked Turner for a ruling as a "way of develop- ing alternatives" to prevent the state from losing up to mil- lion in federal highway funds. The issue arose after Pres- ident Nixon signed legislation authorizing the states to drop speed limits to 55 miles an hour under threat of losing fed- eral highway funding, Ray said he wanted to know if he had the power to lower the speed limits in case the legisla- ture could not agree on legisla- tion within the 60-day time limit set by the federal legislation. "I'm not saying they won't be able to agree, but we are faced with a very serious loss of funds lere and we wanted to examine all Ray said. "We would be foolish not to." The governor noted that the energy crisis study committee of the legislature passed a rec- ommendation Thursday calling 'or the lower speed limit. "They appear on their way to owering the Ray said. Suspects Drivers Setting Fire to Big Automobiles I'ORTUND, Ore. (AP) Some car owners here are ap- parently using their last drops of gasoline lo set lire to their cars. The Portland (ire bureau said i! has received increased rc- of car fires, "particularly in large, late-model ears with large engines and low gasoline mileage. appraisals indicate the ear fire increase is related to (he shortage of Chief James Riopelle said Wednesday. The bureau is ready to present to the district attorney's office the eases of two of the fires it believes were set deliberately. It is investigating the others. The bureau's chief investiga- tor, Capt. John Farber, said two 1974 cars had burned in the previous two days, one with a price tag of more than He said more than 10 such fires had been reported in the previ- ous two weeks. Riopelle said accidental fires, as well as incendiary fires, have increased "because people are now carrying extra supplies of gasoline with them in their vehi- cles." A person who deliberately sets fire to his own car commits a misdemeanor, wanton burning, "but if the fire endangers other property or persons, the charge will become Riopelle said. If an insurance claim is made on an incendiary fire, "the ques- tion of felony prosecution for fraud comes into he said. 20 YEARS AGO The state department said it had started informal discussions with the Chinese communists to deter- mine whether a formula for resuming Korean peace talks, could be found. 1973 winner lack Nicklaus among color from Pebble Beach!

Today, with the advances in modern medical technology, it is possible, to keep patients alive who have no chance of re- covery. Yet, in many cases, the life given them merely prolongs their pain and suf- fering as well as the heartbreak of their families. Tonight's "ABC News Close- Up: The Right to Die" looks at one of the most controversial moral and legal di- lemmas of our time. When should death come? And who should decide? Should it be the patient, the doctor, the family, the law? Narrated by ABC News correspond- ent Stephen Geer. Produced by Marlenc A Sanders.
