He's more of a free as- sociation cross between Mark Twain and Herb Shriner. It's a pity he's only heard a few minutes on NBC's "Em- phasis" on weekdays and on "Monitor" weekends. He has an uncanny ability to faring genuine Americana into ver- bal bas-relief.

NEW YORK (AP) "When I was young, I thought it was lot more likely that I would grow up lo be novelist than vice-president of the Uniled States. The written word has always fascinated me." That's how former Vice- president Spiro Agnew de- scribes his new role as a writer, tn an interview in the current issue of Ladies Home Journal, 4gnew says he decided to write a novel to build confidence after a "very traumatic experience." Agnew pled no contest to income tax charges and re- signed the vice-presidency last October. Every Word Agnew said he is writing every word of the novel "A Very Special Relationship" himself, in longhand on lined yellow legal paper or dictating dialog in the den of his Mary- land home. The book is about' a vice- president a decade in the future who "becomes the dupe of Iran- ian militants who want to cause an all-out confrontation between the U. S. and the Soviet Union.

"Writing these love scenes frightens me to says Agnew. The former vice-presiden said he doubted the scenes would be too realistic for the pages of the Ladies Home Jour nal. He added, "I have to admii that I won't always be writing from my own experience. I'm not a man of great experience in this area." Agnew said he couldn't saj whether President Nixon woulc read his book. "I have had no contact with lim since I Agnew said.

Flynn, former superintendent of public works at Mechanicsville, Mon- day pled guilty to four counts of violating the Iowa gifts and gra- tuities law. He was fined Flynn was charged by Cedar county Attorney Edward Kemp on April 1. At the same time, Marv Prysock, a salesman for Juarantee Chemical Co., was charged with two counts of vio- lating the law. The informations alleged that Flynn accepted from Pry- sock Sept. 1, 1972; on Nov. 1, 1972 from Prysock; from Joe Fowler, salesman for Del Chem- ical, Nov. 1, 1972, and from Fowler in April of 1973. Prysock was charged with the Sept. 1, 1972, and the Nov. 1, 1972, counts. Flynn resigned as mblic works superintendent last July 14. products varies, depending on the individual's normal flow of perspiration, his daily physical activity and the climate. Con- trary lo some advertising claims, none of them will com- pletely stop perspiration; the most that can be expected is a reduction in sweating by 20 to 40 percent. Deodorants don't affect the flow of perspiration in any way. Their ingredients generally in- clude perfume to mask odor and antibacterial agents to inhibit bacterial growth. Commonly used ingredients are hex- achlorophene, zinc phenosul- fonate and methylbenzethonium chloride. Most tend to stick to the skin even after washing. As a result, the effectiveness of aj deodorant builds up over a period of days. .It also tapers off gradually if use of the product is discontinued.

The council voted to waive a requirement that the law be voted on at three successive council meetings so it can become effective immediate- ly. The ordinance would not ban public exposure of naked babies or breast-feeding mothers. Assistant City Attorney Wil- liam Groteluschen said in ad- dition to streaking, or running nude in public, the law is "in- tended" to prohibit the nude modeling at adult book stores and massage parlors here. Councilman Jack Woods said he asked for the new law because the city's old indecent exposure ordinance was ruled unconstitutional earlier this month by Associate District Judge Luther Glanton, jr., who said the old statute was loo vague.
