Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - November 17, 1970, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT 90TH YEAR, NO. 157 PHONE 6734271 ABILENE, TEXAS, 79604, TUESDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 17, TWENTY PAGES IN TWO SECTIONS lOc 25c SUNDAY Auociated Prtu (ff) iefs Concern Self-Centeredr Ex-Attorney General 'a Jellyfish'-Hoover RAMSEY CLARK comments In bonk Dy JIARK BROWN Associated Press Writer WASHfNGTO.V (AP) FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover and former Ally. Gen. Ramsey Clark, apparently uneasy bed- fellows in law enforcement for Inn years, have publicly di- vorced themselves with verbal blasts at each other. Clark, Hoover's boss from 1967 to 1969. fired the first shot. The 76-year-old director's "self- centered concern for his own re- said Clark in a new booi, led to the FBI's sacrifice of "effective crime control." Hoover, in turn, told a Wash- Ington Port reporter that Clark was "a the worst at- torney general in the 45 years Hoover has headed the elite fed- eral law enforcement agency. While a 1964 confrontation over standards for Fill s resulted in Hoover's refusal 1o speak to the late Robert F. Ken- nedy in the last six months of his tenure as attorney general, the director told the Washington Post in an Interview: "If ever there was a worse at- torney general, it was Clark. You never knew which way he was going to flop on an hsuc. "lie was worse than Bobby the newspaper's Tuesday editions quoted Hoover as saying. "At least Kennedy stuck by his guns, even when he was wrong." Clark could not be reached immediately for comment. Hoover termed Ally. Gen. John N. Mitchell, his current boss, an "honest, sincere and very human man." "There has never been an at- torney general for whnm had higher the Post quoted him as saying. In his book, "Crime in Ameri- Clark charged "the FDI has so coveted personal credit that it will sacrifice every effec- tive crime control before it will share the glory of its exploits. "This has been a petty and costly characteristic caused by 'the excessive domination of a single person, J. Edgar Hoover, and his elf-centered concern for his reputation and that of the FBI." Advance publicity on the book stirred Hoover to momentarily loner a barrier between himself and newsmen that had existed for three years. Post reporter Ken W. Clawson W'ole that Hoover said Clark was "like a jellyfuh a sof- tie" who failed to match up to his father, the former attorney general and Supreme Court Jus- tice Tom Clark. Judging by past public state- ments of both men, Hoover and Clark were poles apart in their philosophical approach to law enforcement. Clark displayed a tendency to search for the social and eco- nomic causes of crime; Hoover is less willing to forgive. Clark supported the Supreme Court decisions expanding rights of the accused; to Hoover they are "handcuffs" on the police. Clark, considered a potential dark horse for the 1972 Demo- cratic presidential nomination, said In his book a rift developed between Kennedy and Hoover over pursuit of organized crime. The FBI Clark said, continued to dramatize the peril of the Communist party "long there was any risk to national security from that source." When Kennedy began pushing the fight against organized crime in 1951, Clark said, the FBI hung back. "The conflict between Ally. Gen. Kennedy and the FBI arose from the unwillingness of the bureau to participate on an equal basis with other crime control Clark said. Hoover, however, gave other reasons for his rift with Kcnne- dy. "The trouble was that Kenne- dy wanted lo loosen up our standards and qualifications; In discard the requirement that agents hold degrees in law or accounting. He even wanted to discard the bachelor's degree as a Hoover was quoted as saying. "In short, he wanted more agents. I told him Bobby, I have no prejudices.

I understand a percentage of the money paid to photographers who take school pictures Is turned over lo the school Involved. What percentage of the money goes (o (he school and what Is It used for? A. Most schools get about 40 per cent, but this varies depending on Ihe size of the school, size of the pictures, number of pictures sold and the photographer.
