Shafer, speaking at a cam- paign dinner Tuesday, said this is why his opponent Milton J. Shapp has opposed it. Shafer said Shapp "is obviously upset because he knows it is good." Shapp's complaints about the newly adopted Republican poli- cy statement are "another ex- ample of his negative approach to everything in this cam- paign." Shafer said the platform was "just one platform for the people." ed the dinner and also heard Sens. Hugh Scott, R-Pa., and Jacob Javits, R-N.Y., speak. Shafer said he considered the platform "most valuable" be- cause it promises "a better way of life to residents of the Commonwealth through logical, sound practices."

Gordon Jr. hung halfway out of the space ship on a star photogra- phy assignment. Gordon was standing in seat, his head poked through an open hatch waiting for a night- time pass so he could see the stars, when command pilot Charles Conard Jr. reported: "We both took a cat-nap dozed off for a few minutes."

Shapp, the Demo- cratic gubernatorial nominee in Pennsylvania, has proposed a blue-ribbon panel "to take a look at law enforcement meth- ods" and recommend legisla- tion 'to revise the state's liquor control laws. Shapp said the liquor laws haven't been changed since 1933 and such a probe "will help the industry to better police itself, the liquor board to do its job better, and the citizens to bet- ter understand the industry and its problems." The former Philadelphia in- dustrialist made the proposal Tuesday at a convention of the Pennsylvania Tavern Associa- tion here. He also told the tavern own- ers he opposes "nickeling and diming" the liquor and tobacco industries with taxes. "These taxes represent a des- perate attempt to raise revenue at the expense of the social drinker, the smoker and the in- dustry. They hit hardest at well behaved, moderate income peo- ple. I am concerned lest this discriminatory burden be- come too great for the industry to he said. The candidate said he would also oppose any plan to abolish the state-owned system of liq- uor stores and substitute them with privately owned establish- ments as in New Jersey. He said he also opposed issu- ing new liquor licenses freely.

Today's vote is on a cloture petition filed by Senate Demo- cratic leader Mike Mansfield to end a shadow filibuster which began when sponsors presented a motion to take up the bill a week ago.

Most controversial portion of the House-passed bill would for- bid discrimination in the sale or rental of about 40 per cent of the nation's housing. Single-family dwellings would not be included.
