Hiawatha Demo- crat, as lit campaigns for the Ueimioralic nnminulinn for Second tlislrit-t congressman. .lensen. a Dccorali mime. a former newscaster. anil fur Ilii1 last seven years an aide In L'.S. Sen. Harold lltyllcs nf Iowa. is fearful that people have Ins! so nineh eonfideiioe in x'lvi'rniiiciil recently that they are ready to dump the nilire pnlilical prnress through nun-pan icipatiun. Climate Kisht Federal spending and Ihe economy definitely are related, lie explained, and 1'residi-iil Xixon is partly lo blame fur excessive federal spending; by failing I" show any fiscal res- traint in his proposed budgets. Congress is In blame. too. he went on, for it isn't do- ing a good budgetary job. A Solution That's what he said when he annmmced for nffii-e last Oct. IT. He alsu t'spunsetl Iht'ii the theme he's been following ever since: This is no time to surrender government In "the select few" not when the climate is riyht "for those of us without a bankroll to regain control of the political process." He sees an encouraging sign. he said in an interview, in that the people are letting their voices be hoard now tin at least one subject: The national economy. Jensen, in turn, is letting his voice be heard on huw to slow down the inflation that con- tinues to push prices ever up- ward. Breakins Staged By Constable To Look Good' SHEFFIELD. England (UPI) Police constable Terence Murphy often was first on the scene after .a breakin and often recovered stolen goods. But his reports always showed he had no clue to the culprit. The paradox was solved in Sheffield crown court when Murphy and the thief were found to be the same man. Murphy, a 26-year-old father of two, pled guilty to fuur charges of theft and burglary and asked for 24 other offenses to be considered in sentencing. He was jailed for 18 months. His lawyer told the court that after tive years on the torce Murphy felt he was not ad- vancing fast enough, so he committed the breakins to "look good" by recovering stolen goods and earn promo- tion.

"Kiir- Uinateiy. legislation is Hearing passage to require congress to set budget priorities in ad- vance before making appropriations." As it stands now, he con- tinued, congress appropriates and appropriates without really knowing, as it moves along, how much it actually is spending. Prebudgel priority- setting would help lo solve that problem. It would help immeasurably, too. if information presented congress were on a three-year planning basis rather than an annual basis. It would enable congressmen to look ahead more than they are able lo now. This would mean requiring executive departments to divulge llioir long range plans, which they refuse to do now under tile so-called "executive privilege" dodge. Something must be done lo stabilize the economy, Jensen said, for it is absorbing all the resources of those on fixed in-, come through continuing increases in medical care, property taxes, food and fuel. Cost of Energy The high cost of energy, based en petroleum, is one of the prime reasons for inflation. Jensen said, which means congress must support research for new energy sources. Inflation, he added, is exactly what former U.S. Sen. Jack Miller, Sioux City Republican, used to call it: "The cruelest tax of all." Jensen opined that one reason President Nixon has let the budget "get out of hand" is that his mind has been on his troubles stemming from Wa- tergate, income taxes and presidential homes at San Clemente and Key Biscayne. The reason people aren't saying much about these tilings now is "because they have their minds up." "Ihey Mini' the ['resident should leave .lensen said. "They also feel that the Democrats are slowing down impeachment due lo politics." Campaign Financing Along with stabilising the economy. .lensen noted, there is "a trc.mcmloiis public demand to clean up campaign financing." "I am an apostle for govern- ment financing of campaigns." he confessed, "with an ab- solute limit f un any private contribution permit- ted." If the government financed campaigns, lie continued, it would result in displacing "the excessive influence of wealthy interests as we know it now. "Moreover, it would ir- tually insure that sume veteran incumbent congressmen who seldom face opposition re- election would get vigorous challenges to hold their seals. "This, in turn, should mean sume of them would lose, which would help to erode the seniority system and the present power structure in congress." Like his three opponents for the Democratic nomination for congressman C..1. Adams and Michael Blotlin of Dubuque. and Harry Sullivan of Ryan Jensen would like tu see sume changes made in congress, including doing away with the seniority sys- tem. Health Care If elected. Jensen would like to serve on the house ways- means committee since it deals with tax reform, welfare, social security, national health care and international trade subjects he is interested in and where he could do the most good for the Second district. Jensen favors a national health care program adminis- tered by a governmental agency, that would not he limited to insuring treatment to catastrophic illnesses. Here's how he stands un other subjects: Agriculture he favors tax laws blocking non-farm invest- ment in big farming operations and international trade policies that would keep world markets open. More Helpful Hints on Backpacking Martin Jensen Amnesty "the most effec- tive wav to deal with it is to make it unconditional. it is tu represent my c'Histiiitciicy and I accept amnesty on the condi- tion alternate service is per- formed." Abortion a Catholic, he opposes abortion "as a matter of personal conscience" and he would support moves tu re- strict its availability. "But this doesn't mean I am opposed to birth control or public funding for expansion of birth control services." Eldest of eight hoys, Jensen is married and the father of four daughters Julia, 13: Jeanine, 111: Pain, ,S and Cathy, o. On March 1 they returned lu Iowa from Washington with their mother, Mary Ann. to finish the school year and to help in the campaign.
