Bill Becker state president of al Cio said Friday that the unions had contacted several persons including gov. Dale bumpers about seeking the seat now held by sen. John l. Mcleiian. 0-Aric. Becker said Union leaders met with bumpers several times after they heard persistent rumours that bumpers might be interested in making the Senate race. Quot he finally told us he had his program to Complete and that he was probably going to run for governor Quot Becker said. Quot in my opinion Dale bumpers would make a Good candidate for any office in the state and the Becker made the statements after it was revealed that some powerful Union leaders were interested in a Strong candidate that could make a race against Mcleiian. The letters indicated that Union leaders had made funds and staff available to congressman David Pryor in his race against Mcleiian. Becker said that Magellan had received Union funds in the past and added that he would support Republican Wayne Babbitt if Pryor fails to make a Runoff with Mcleiian in the primary. Some of the letters in question dated As far Back As August of last year but Becker said that it was not an unusual practice to begin planning a Campaign that far in Advance. Quot we have been looking for a candidate to run against John Mcleiian since 1954 and have not been Able to find one with the guts to make the race Quot Becker said. Quot frankly i did not think that Pryor would make the race because he had a Safe seat Quot said Becker. Quot that Young Man has a lot of guts to take on a Veteran campaigner Many candidates have not been willing to do earlier Friday Mcclean had maintained uie unions opposed him was because he had investigated the Workings of some of the Unks and that investigation resulted in some Union leaders being indicted. Quot bowl Kennedy also investigated labor and National labor likes him and probably would have supported him for the presidency Quot Becker said. Quot i think the opposition to Mcleiian is based on record and the votes Quot cast by Mcleiian on a number of issues including consumer pro text pm and jobs he added. Becker said he Felt that Mcleiian and us a rules should apol a i to Orgar Zed labor Utida lib leaders for remarks they have made during this Campaign. Becker said he objected to remarks allegedly made breakfast in Jonesboro about Quot unionist children Quot and another remark allegedly made by a Mcleiian supporter referring to Quot labor goons. Quot Becker said Mcleiian was not above taking Money funks. He said that Mcclean had re a ived to of from the seafarers Union in 1171 for a speech be before them. He said that in 1970 the Union had indicted for misuse of Union funds in a political activity. Quot i think Mcclean is out of step with the Arkansas delegation said Becker. Quot Pryor s record since he has been in Congress is slightly better than congressman Wilbur Mills and congressman Bill however Becl or said that Pryor had not always voted on the Side of labor. He gave As an example the ssi vote. The International machinists Union which had written the letters pleading their support to Pryor had supported the ssi while Pryor voted against it. Becker predicted that Pryor and Mcclelland would be in a Runoff for the democratic nomination. However if Pryor fails to make the Runoff. Becker said the voters of Arkansas still have a Good choices in the Republican candidacy of or. Wayne Babbitt. Quot i Don t know if he would get labor support Quot Becker said referring to Babbitt "1 would cast my vote for Quot the republicans could put together a real coalition Quot Becker said. He predicted that regardless of whether Pryor gets the nomination Quot there is going to be a new face in the by Kenneth j. Freed associated press writer Washington a the United states and the soviet Union left relatively free to increase the site and improve the Quality of their nuclear arsenals in the immediate future under the terms of the arms limit Tum agreement reached in Moscow Friday. The accords still allow the improvement of currents tems a Well As completion of programs already under Way. As a result the first stage of the so called Salt agreement does Little More than signal the future intent of the superpowers to slow their nuclear arms contest. The limits set out in the five year pact and accompanying executive agreement Loose enough to provide room for a Many arms race should either nation decide to take full advantage of every Inch of margin allowed. For instance under the provision allowing improvement of existing systems the soviet Union could push ahead with its reported plan to replace All 288 ss9 offensive missiles with larger ones capable of carrying agreement allows Moscow if it chooses to build its Fleet of Polaris Type vessels to More than 40. Combined with conventional missile equipped subs the russians conceivably could have up to 950 undersea based missiles. Also covered in the agreement defensive abm missile systems. President Nixon gave up one prospective abm site in Mon Una but he picked up the right to build a facility to protect Washington d.c., As Well As an abm shield for offensive launchers in North Dakota. On the soviet Side an existing abm site for Moscow can be increased and the russians May build a protective system for one of its offensive rocket fact lines. This Means each Side can build to a total of 200 abm launchers for their two Sites. Nixon has enough larger ones Capa Oie 01 carry my 20 Wari leads each equipped with a so megaton bomb. Request by two firms denied Little Rock a the state pollution control and ecology commission voted Friday to deny requests by two firms for additional time to install air pollution control equipment. The requests were made by the hot Springs aluminium processors co. Of hot Springs and the Prescott division of Motlach forests inc. The commission s action followed a recommendation earlier Friday by the executive committee of the state pollution control and ecology department. The comi tree also voted to file Misdemeanour charges la against Petiach forests that i Caincr is could Cost the firm 1250 a Day 4 j uni it compues with the air Acque 11160 pollution control code. So megaton the United states now has 5,-000 warheads for its 1,064 offensive missiles and strategic bombers while Russia s less developed system includes 2,500 warheads for some 1,600 launchers. However the Salt treaty allows Moscow to develop More advanced i rvs multiple independently targe table re entry vehicles to a total of about 6,000. Another option of increased weapons building involves submarine based missiles. The . Fleet now consists of 41 subs carrying a total of 656 Polaris or Poseidon missiles. Friday s agreement allows the expansion to about 700 missiles. Ilie russians have Only 25 such submarines each equipped with three missiles but the Pryor reacts Little Rock a rep. David Pryor d-Ark., Friday accused supporters of sen. John l. Mcleiian d-arii., of planting a Story with the news Media concerning Letten of Campaign support As Early As last summer from powerful Union leaders for Pryor. Charges Baker Headquarters manager for Mcleiian denied the charge. Pryor said the Story was a last minute move by Magellan supporters to stave off a possible Runoff election Between Pryor and Mcleiian for the democratic senatorial . Quot we expected sen. Mcleiian to attempt a last minute tactic to confuse the voters Quot Pryor said. He said he did not believe the Story which was carried by the associated i Ress. Would help the Campaign of either Mcleiian or ted Boswell in their race for the Senate. Faster Johnson of Little Rock is also seeking the nomination. Pryor said the Story would have Quot no effect because the Arkansas voter is intelligent and by Laurance f. Stuntz associated press writer new York a any easier Trade that May develop Between Russia and the United states promises benefits ranging from the new England computer towns Westward through Ohio s machine tool District to the California electronics firms. Longer term it could help the midwestern Farmer and machinery builders from Toledo to Tulsa. It might even lower the Cost of Home heating on the Atlantic coast. The soviet Union announced Friday that president Nixon and Kremlin leaders had agreed at their Summit to set up a joint commission to Quot promote the development of mutually advantageous relations in one interpretation of the development is that president Nixon and soviet leaders feel it is impossible to resolve during the Summit talks the Complex Trade questions facing the two countries and that such a commission is needed to continue the negotiations. But if problems resolved and .-soviet Trade is expanded it would mean sales to Russia of computers and machine tools right away. Later As Russia made it easier for americans to sell to soviet factories it could help sales of All kinds of machinery.
