Glen is old-fashioned: he's patriotic, he cares, and he stands up for what he believes. Glen is in 50-50 partnership with Tommy Smothers on produc- tion of The Glen Campbell Good- lime Hour, the new CBS-TV series. But what is on the show reflects Glen's opinions, not Tom- my's. "When I did the Summer re- placement show, there were some' things I didn't agree saidj Glen, "hut I lold Tommy I'd do them, because he was the boss ;md I was the employe. But I have also told him 'that what ?oes on this show rellects my views." Glen's views are basically con- jlauRht him how, of course, but proves nothing. To line up on a man with a jrille.

A total of 102 r By LEE LEONARD HARR1SBURG (UPI) Re- publicans and Democrats fought their first major battle of 1969 in the House Wednes- day, with the GOP refusing to help Democrats pass a bill to aid Philadelphia schools with- out getting something in return. It was a case of the Republi- cans giving Democrats a taste of the medicine they served up in 1967-68 when the'GOP had a bare constitutional majority of 104 votes or less. This year, the Democrats of- ficially have 105 members, but illnesses and absences have prevented them from raising and placed in position for an- other vote next Monday. In retaliation for the Republi- can refusal to help pass the bill, lhe Democrats defeated a procedural resolution which would have allowed the Repub- lican controlled Senate to take a two-week vacation. Rep. Robert J. Butera, R- Monlgomery, the GOP whip opened debate on the Philadel- phia bill by explaining lhat Re- publicans, except for those from Philadelphia, were with- holding their votes because not enough Philadelphia Democrats were present to get their sup- port on record. Butera said collection of the lax would not be affected by a bills on their own. The net effect of Wednesday's action was to block passage un- 586 record- In" otheTiegislative vcar Wednesday: 'dates.
