Pearl Harbor Date Observed PEARL HARBOR. Hawaii (CPI) — Navy men stopped their chores and stood with their heads bowed in a moment of silent prayer Saturday at the exact moment of the surprise Japanese attack 33 years ago The military remembered Dec 7, 1941, the date President Franklin D. R«»osevelt said would “live in infamy," with an observance at the gleaming Arizona Memorial, built over the sunken battleship where more than I.KHI men remain entombed The ceremony was made more poignant by the shipyard s siren signaling 7 55 am. the beginning of the moment of prayer when the first bombs fell in the attack that plunged the U S into World war IL Charter UCI Telephoto Cheers for McGovern Democratic National Committee Chairman Robert Strauss (right) introduces Sen. George McGovern to a wildly-cheering Democratic mid-term convention. McGovern, who led the Democrats to their disastrous defeat in I 972, received a roaring three-minute ovation at the opening of the convention's second session. Lawmaker Sees Repeat of 72 (Continued from Page 1.1 accompanying story for details) It was Rep, Joe Waggoner of Louisiana who told convention delegates they would be heading toward another 1972 if they accepted the compromise language, Iowa delegates played a prominent role throughout the convention in working for the compromise language and in leading the way toward a more open party However, they were on the losing suit* in three other attempts ti! change the charter — two of them on roll-call votes The Iowans voted 26-3 in favor af un amendment to make future mid-term conventions, like the present one. mandatory. But the convention voted down the amendment, 1.006-823, Losinu Side A second attempt to accomplish the same goal found Iowa on the losing side on a voice vote. Hard to convince, those who want mid-term conventions mandatory, came back with a third amendment to order one held in 1978 with future mid term conventions optional after that Iowa voted 25-4 for this amendment hut it lost. 968-851. The    Iowa delegates were on the winning side in turning down another amendment which    was designed to give larger states and conservative forces more representation on    the Democratic National Committee They als*! voted with the majority in amending the charter to require all meetings of the national committee, and other official party commtt-U*es. to he open to the public with secret ballot    votes prohibited \ ounu Democrats The convention voted to permit Young Democrats to name two members to the national committee at their convention in addition to the YI) national president, who already sits on that ImhIv Iowa voted against this on grounds that many states do not have YI) organizations since the younger people prefer to wink in the main parts itself The convention ends Sunday with little business left to transact after Saturday s marathon s«*ssion, which start-cd at Kl 39 a iii. and lasted until 8 (Hi p.in. There wasn't even a luncheon to- dinner break for the 1,911 accredited delegates. Instead, they munched sandwiches, pot atli chips, apples and grapes, washed down with coffee or soft drinks while they considered changes in the proposed charter. Twice the hall took on a national convention atmosphere as delegates cheered Senators Hubert Humphrey and George McGovern, their respective 1968 and 1972 presidential candidates. Sunbird, chairman of the Democratic Charter Commission, was at the rostrum when Humphrey took his seat with the Minnesota delegation Standing Ovation Sanford spotted the former vice-president and introduced him with the comment that the United States would have been better off today had he been elected President six years ago. This brought the cheering delegates to their feet for one of the most enthusiastic responses since the convention open**! Friday. Meanwhile, two members of Iowa's congressional delegation — Congressman Neal Smith of the Fourth district and Congressman elect Tom Harkin of the Fifth — expressed concern over the convention's action in adopting. by voice vote, a sweeping economic policy resolution before adjourning Friday night. Two other congressmen, Edward Mezvinsky of the First and John Culver of the Second, with U.S. Sen Dick Clark of Iowa. had some reservation hut favored the resolution All are members of the state's delegation to this convention The resolution put the party on record for an expanded public works program I*! reduce unemployment, for tax reduction and reform, for revival of the Reconstruction Finance corporation to help faltering private businesses with loans; for “across-the-board" wage-pnce controls, for tightening anti-trust laws and their enforcement, for an independent board to administer emergency economic controls, for a mandatory system of energy conservation, and for national health insurance Also included in the resolution were endorsements of Democratic congressional goals for consumer protection and no-fault insurance Smith Commem Smith, dean of Iowa congressional Democrats, expressed particular concern a bout the wage-priee control section, saying. “The one we had caused prices higher than they would have been otherwise. It penalized those trying to hold profit margins down and rewarded those that had the biggest margins That usually works for a few months but in the long run it catches up, forcing those with low margins out of business Controls won t work as a permanent program " Harkin. who'll take Republican Congressman William St herle’s seat next month, added that controls are “psychologically bad" in thai adoption of the resolution calling for them by this convention gives th** impression congress is going to follow through This. in turn. In* explained, is followed by price increases in preparation for the day they may be frozen bv controls. Senator Clark said “I generally support the resolution and the goals it sets out although I am not for everything in it." Farina Issues Mezvinsky said “I don’t know whether the resolution is a perfect answer hut it is at least an attempt by our party to face up to the economic issues at home “It sets a foundation and gives us a hast* to move from hut I don ’t consider my vote for it t*» put us into a locked-in position.” Culver commented that it is “imperative that the Democratic majority in congress develop a strong and effective economic agenda to meet the current crisis and general economic conditions. as well as the dangerous deficiencies of presidential leadership." He said the program "constitutes a useful framework for development of an appropriate congressional program to deal specifically with this overriding issue.” Drive Safely !
