Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 12, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Fri., April 12, 1974 'Emotion' Guarantees Impeachment By Kevin Kane A journalist who worked for Richard Nixon 14 years ago said Thursday night he expects the public’s current “tidal wave of emotion’’ over Watergate to result in the President’s impeachment in the house. Rut. Alvin Moscow told a Coe college audience, he sees the President neither resigning nor being convicted in the senate if impeached. Moscow, a special campaign assistant for Nixon's unsuccessful bid for the California governorship in 1962, also helped organize and research Nixon's now-famous book “Six Crises’’. Moscow basically defended the President as a victim of circumstances in the Watergate affair. but predicted impeachment on the basis of public sentiment making it harder for congress- Alvin Moscow men to explain why they opposed impeachment. Asked to clarify his reasoning during a question-and-answer period, Moscow said that most people had formed a “prima facie” case against the President and therefore felt Nixon “ought to be impeached and then tried on the evidence.” Taking a longer-term view of the Watergate affair, Moscow postulated that historians 20 years from now may merely refer to it as something which “marred the presidency of Richard Nixon.” The same historians, Moscow contended, will probably find many positive thing to say in evaluating Nixon’s term of office. Included, he said, could be such things as extricating the United States from the Vietnam war. handling detente with China and Russia and (if borne out in time) laying of a foundation for a “generation of peace.” “If the President succeeds in SALT talks with Russia, we will really have disarmament,” Moscow said, predicting future historians would considor Nixon “one of the most adept Presidents in handling foreign poli-cv.” $1 Million Foster Care Bill to Ray Clark: No Significant Benefit from 1972 Act Atwell Conner Bound to Jones Grand Jury W AS HINGTO N (AP) — Rural Development, Clark said DES MOINES (AP) — A bill “After almost two years, there staff and budgetary problems ANAMOSA - Atwell Junior to appropriate $1 million for has boon virtually no significant withjn |he agricu|ture depart .: Conner. 29, rural Bertram, has r hnnntlt ta t Ha rennin At rural n 1 increases in foster care pay-ments for homeless children was given final legislative approval Thursday when the senate passed the bill 44-0 and sent it to Gov.

All-Iowa Fair To Have Larger Midway Section Premium book for the All-Iowa fair will be ready in about a month, and the 1974 fair will have an expanded independent midway, Fair Manager Charlie Decker told the fair’s board of directors Thursday. Major change in the premium book this year will involve the livestock shows which have been expanded to include entries from all states which border on Iowa. Previously, entries were limited to Iowa. The All-Iowa limitation will [still be in effect for the junior livestock show and for the other fair events, including the Woman’s World, Fine Arts and the horticulture-agriculture show. Reservations for space in Exhibition hall are running ahead of last year and most of the out- j side concession space has been reserved. Decker told the board. “A bright spot on the indepen- • dent midway is that we will have more walk-through exhibits than we did a year ago,”; Decker said. “It’s going to be a full, independent midway on the streets behind the grandstand.” \ He also pointed out that the number of free acts to be presented in that area will be increased this year. “A person can come to the fair, never go to the grandstand and still get far more than his money’s worth,” Decker said. The 39th annual fair will open its 10-dav stand June 28 Naming of Father Asked In Adoption Amendment Vinton Ends Water Tower Name Dispute VINTON — The Vinton city night ap- Jones county Attorney David Renley said Thursday the bond remains at $100,000 on each charge.

IO YEARS AGO — Pointing to a major crisis of unemployment of the entire Negro community, the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People pledged a series of demon-s t r a t i o n s against General Motors to protest discriminatory practices in employment. DES MOINES (UPI) - The Iow'a house Thursday amended legislation rewriting the state’s adoption laws to require the names of suspected fathers of children born out of wedlock and placed up for adoption to be published in local newspapers. Lawmakers voted 60-20 to prohibit public disclosure of the mother's name, but reasoned that names of all prospective fathers must be made public to allow the natural father to claim the child. Rep. Joseph Rinas (D-Marion), the sponsor of the amendment, said in cases where children born out of wedlock are offered for adoption the only way to notify the father may be through public posting. However, he argued, the mother's privacy should be protected at all costs, but in some situations the only way to locate the real father may be through publication. The amendment was aimed at correcting Iowa's currently unconstitutional adoption laws ; which do not require the natural fathers of children born out of wedlock to legally terminate Cornell Newspaper Gets Honor Rating MT. VERNO N - The Cornelian. weekly student newspaper at Cornell college, has received the Associated Collegiate Press (ACP) All-American honor rating. To merit this rating, a college newspaper must receive from the judge “mark of distinction” credit in at least four of these five areas: coverage and content. writing and editing, editorial leadership, physical appearance and photography. The Comedian received “mark of distinction" in the first four categories The ACP was founded in 1921 It prepares guidebooks to give student newspaper staffs compact. comprehensive evaluations of their newspapers, and a digest of standards and suggestions for such publications. Concert Canceled IOWA CITY — The concn; t hy the University of Iow a Kantorei scheduled for April 26 at Clapp recital hall, has been canceled The April 21 piano recital by Carle Lesniak. assistant professor of music, has also been canceled their claim to a child before it is adopted. In a further effort to protect the privacy of the mother, the house voted 47-38 to prohibit in-! quiries into the woman's past in order to establish the identity of the father. The rider, also offered by Rinas, specifically forbids a court ordering a woman to disclose the father’s name. He said forcing a 15-year-old unwed mother to reveal her lover’s name could subject the man — if he was over 18 — to charges of statutory rape. In addition, he said, a woman should not be allowed to be held in contempt of court for refusing to identify the father. The house, which adjourned Thursday for the Easter weekend, is expected to resume debate next week on the measure.
