Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 6, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa GOF Falls $1 Million Short in '73 Fund    Raising• Demos    Gain Ground By ll. L. Schwartz III WASHINGTON (Ap) Tho Republican national committee fell about $1 million short of its fund raising goal in 1973. Blit keyed souk1 of their regular fund raising to Watergate last year. The Republican theme was that the regular party organize , rf ,    il'on    never    had    anything    to    do Kry offlclal Sil.Vs it has sur- with the June 17. 1972, break-in vived the fallout from Water I or the so called dirty tricks al gate in a healthier financial position than expected. I lie political climate created by Watergate apparently led to a decline In big contributions to the Democratic national commit tee, too. Nevertheless, current financial reports indicate tributed to President Nixon’s reelection committee. Civil Actions The Democrats asked for help in pressing various civil actions against the President’s cam paign apparatus as a result of their regular party organization the Watergate breakin, may be in better shape than it Roth Eric Jaffe* deputy trea ha.s been for years. From quarterly reports filed with the General Accounting Office, here are the figures for both national committees: $65,000 Balance The Republicans raised $5.6 million and spent about the same amount in 1973, ending the year with a cash blance of $65,571. The Democrats had total income last year of $5 million with $5.3 million in expenses. They had $1.2 million in the bank at year’s end. The Democrats, in a note attached to their report, told the GAO they had paid $500,000 on their long-term debt in the final; quarter of 1973, but still owed some $3 million. That debt was more than $9 million after the 1968 presidential campaign. Both national committees surer for the Democrats, and Robert P. Odell, treasurer of the Republican national finance committee, said it would be dif ficult to gauge how effective ei-tner appeal was. Despite this, both Jaffe and Odell said there were fewer large givers in 1973 than expected, even allowing that it was a year with no major elections. Both also said they believed many people had been turned off regarding politics in general by Watergate. Traditionally, Republicans have had a two-to-one edge over Democrats in fund-raising on the national level. Temporarily Erased While the latest quarterly reports indicate the Democrats may have 'temporarily erased that advantage, Jaffe said it would be impossible to draw Chinese Missile Gains Slower Than Expected such a conclusion without look mg at all financial reports for candidates and commttees na tionwide. The Democrats also have that debt to pay off. In addition, the Democrats’ cash balance doesn’t all belong to the1 com mittee. Of $4.1 million raised by the national committee in the hist quarter of 1973, some $3.7 million came from a September telethon. Jaffe said half of that must be paid back to Democrat ic state committee's, which shared the cost of the telethon. About the Republicans, Odell said, “(Considering what people were saying would happen to us, we’ve done pretty well. “The average man in the street who is a Republican has stood by his party.’’ WASHINGTON (AP) — Com- told the senate armed services munist Chinese development of committee Tuesday that what ,    ,    ,    ,    i    Ba Ani I or!

Peking’s description of the state of Moscow-Washington relations appeared in a Hsinhua news agency article attacking the foreign policy of Soviet party chief Leonid Brezhnev. It accused Brezhnev of diplomatic “follies and scandals” based on aggression and expansion. Since Nixon’s journey to Peking in 1972, the Chinese have sought to discourage moves toward Soviet-U. S. cooperation which might give the Russians a free hand in Europe, the Pacific and along the uneasy Sino-Soviet borders. Though the Hsinhua commentary monitored in Tokyo castigated Brezhnev, it carefully refrained from abusing Nixon. 11 pictured Soviet-American rapprochement as part of a competition for world domination which the Russians are losing.

(AI*) -Scientists have more than 1,000 new close-up photos of the planet Venus in hand, and more are expected from Mariner IO as the spacecraft speeds on toward Mercury. Scientists at the Jet Propul sion Laboratory here plan to advance some tentative conclusions about the Venusian data for newsmen shortly but they! say final judgments might be I months away. Mariner will continue beaming back photos of the cloud-shrouded planet through Feb 22. Scientists said the first hatch of photos sent bark Tuesday showed evidence of layering in Venus’ clouds, something they had suspected hut had been unable to prove. They will be able to get a better idea after running the pictures through a computer enhancement process. Because of light reflected off Power Company Sets Contingency Blackout Plans PROVIDENCE, IU. (AP) — There are some funny numbers ion January electric bills for 240,000 customers of the Narragansett Electric Co. They won’t mean more money, but they could mean dark homes. The bills include code numbers as part of a contingency plan for possible blackouts if the fuel shortage worsens. “This is the last possible move to make,” a spokesman said. “We’re not saying we’re going to knock you off next week. We’re just being prepared.” If it becomes necessary to interrupt service because of a lack of fuel. customers will be alerted by the printing of their code numbers in the newspaper. and told when a power cut will occur on their feeder lines the utility spokesman said. The contingency plan was recommended by the New England Bower Bool which issues fuel forecasts each week. If blackouts are needed, the plan is for “rolling blackouts,” cutting power to particular areas for a period of time, then returning that area’s power and interrupting electricity to another area, and so on, the spokesman said. the planet, the clouds appear in the pictures taken by Mariner as a bright white against the blackness of outer space. But Dr. Bruce C. Murray, head of the Mariner phoot mom toring team, said his team of scientists got just what they expected. The Mariner scientists hope the approximately 5.0(H) photos they get of Venus, coupled with other experimental data accumulated as the spacecraft went by, will add to their knowledge of the planet and its atmosphere. Such information may one day prove valuable in learning more about the atmosphere on earth, they say. The Venus encounter was only a secondary mission in the $98-million Mariner IO project. The 1,108-pound spacecraft is headed for Mercury and is scheduled to arrive there March 29 Because there is no atmosphere on Mercury as there is on earth and Venus, Mariner's cameras will have a clear view of the surface The spacecraft is expected to send back some 2.500 photon of Mercury before finally going into orbit around the sun. France To Attend Oil Conference PARIS (UPI) — France said Wednesday it will participate in the U.S.-sponsored Western Nations Oil Conference in Washington Feb. ll, but will oppose any attempt to weld industrialized powers into a single bloc. A government spokesman 6aid, “If France is ready to participate in an exchange of views on various aspects of the energy problem, it will not give its support to the creation of any organization of the industrialized oil-consuming n a i i o n s separate from other consuming countries, especially the developing nations as well as producing nations.”    mm Bolitical fource*said Foreign Minister Michel Jobert will attend the conference in Washington.
