Daily Tipton Tribune (Newspaper) - May 11, 1974, Tipton, Indiana Party Fight Looms Bruce CardweH's leadership of the Eternocm Party in Tipton County is being challenged again today for the second time in two years. Cardwell, Rt. 1. Sharpsv-ille, is expected to be opposed for the county chairman’s position in today’s reorganization meeting of precinct committeemen and vice-committeemen. Ray Noble, Hobbs, the precinct committeeman in preCtnct Madison I and a candidate for county councilman, is going to try to unseat Cardwell as county chairman. Noble, if he is successful, will be doing what John Rice Jr.. city Dwnocrat chairman, was unable to do in the 1972 re- organizational meeting of the party central committee. In 1972, Cardwell defeated Rice with little trouble, even thoi^ Rice mounted a major campaign in the primary’ to elect a slate erf precinct committeemen who would oppose Cardwell. Cardwell, who has been county chairman for four years, needs only 14 votes from the 13 precinct committeemen and 13 vice committeemen to maintain control of the pjarty’s c«itral committee. Noble said today that he was running for county chairman by cause the precinct committeemen are “unhappy” and that “a majority of the central committee are in favor of changing the party leadership.” P. BRUCE CARDWELL RAY NOBLE Noble said that he had been asked to run for the position two years ago but turned down the offer. Noble said that Tuesday’s balloting changed some of the precinct committeemen, which will help in his election bid. He said this morning that he believed he had the 14 votes necessary to win. In last Tuesday’s primary election there were contests in three of the Democrat precincts for the committeemen jobs, indicating that an attempt to unseat Cardwell was underway. _Cardwell, who is expected to seek re- election, has been unavailable for a comment on today’s re- organizational meeting. Cardwell, presumably, was busy this morning contacting precinct committeemen and vice committeemen. REPUBUCANS VOTE The Republican party is also meeting this afternoon to elect a new county chairman. Richard Regnier, who has held the position for eight years and is also district chairman, has already said he would step down as county chairman. Three names of precinct committeemen have been mentioned as possible successors to Regnier as head of the party here. They are George Greene, city judge, Kenneth Zaloudek, city Republican chairman and William Hawkins, precinct committeeman in precinct Cicero 3. Nixon Won't Resign WASHINGTON (U P I)    — President Nixon stood firm in his determination not to resign today despite rising demands that he step aside. His W’hite House spokesman. Gerald L. Warrea flatly denied Nixon had any such intention and described the President as forward looking and positive in dealing with the problems of the nation. Nixon’s daughter and son-in-law, Julie and David Eis«i-hower, scheduled a news conference today (noon EDT) Golan .War Still Rages The war ot attrition on the Golan Heights went into its third month today despite efforts by Secretar\’ of State Henry A. Kissinger to bring about a S>’r:;n-Israe!: ceasefire. A Syrian communique, issued on the 61st day of clashes, said “fighting between our forces and the enemy spread to other sectors of the front after all-night clashes on Mount Her-mon.” The Israeli command said Arab gunners in Lebanese territory directed bazooka and light-arms fire during the night at Moshav Zarit, a cooperative settlement in the northwestern comer of Israel. It said fire was returned and no Israeli casualties were reported. Israeli Information Minister Shimon Peres said, meanwhile, that the Syrians for the first time appear to be discussing a troop disengagement accord along the lines of the E^ptian-Israeli a'^eement. “It appears that for the first time tte Syrians are showing some inclination to follow the path of Egypt, not only in war but also in dialogue,” Peres said in a national radio interview. Kissinger planned to meet with Isfaeli leaders again tonight. Israeli and Syrian jets flew airstrikes Friday. Neither side claimed any planes shot down. The Beirut newspaper A1 Anwar said Saudi Arabia has told Kissinger that the Arabs might r'ccnsider supplying oil to the United States if disengagement w'as not agreed upon. “Saudi Arabian crfficials told Kissinger that the resumption of oil shipments to America was conditional on separation, ari i if no agreement is reached, a re-discussion of the issue is not unlikely,” the newspaper said. “King Faisal warned the American secretary that the situaticxi in the Middle East could explode if no speedy agreement is reached,” the paper said. Kissinger met with Faisal and other Saudi government officials in Riyadh Tliursday. The Kuwaiti newspaper A1 Siyassah said, meanwhile, that Libyar» leader Col. Moammar Khadafy visited Cairo Thursday for tall^ with President Anwar Sadat. Tlie purpose of the visit, the newspaper said, was to discuss relations between the two countries following Egyptian news media accusations of Libyan involvement in last month’s attack on the military technical academy in Cairo in which 11 persons died.

They cruised with Níxoti aboard his yacht Friday evening. As if to underline his determination to continue in the office to which an overwhelnv ii^ number of voters elected him 19 months ago, Nixon planned to fly to Stillwater, Okla., tonight to address the graduating class at Oklahoma State University. First In 6 Mmths It will be his first app^rance on a college campus since he journeyed to Mersey University, Ga., last Nov. 17. Within the President’s own party. Sen. Richard S. Schweiker, < R-Pa., demanded Nixon’s resignation, but the White House shrugged it off as expected. “I really don’t detect any shift in position on the senator’s part,” Warren said. “Of all expressions we have seen recently this is the least surprising.” > Sen. Milton R. Young of North Dakota, a Republican who normally supports Nixon, urged him to step aside tempoarily under provisions of the 25th Amendment to the Constitution until his name was cleared of wrongdoing. The amendnnent allows a president, if he is incapacitated or for any reason cannot fulfill the duties of his office, to step down ten^rarily and allow his vice president to take over. Rep. Burt Talcott, R-Calif., a solidly caiservative Nixon supporter, Friday said it would be “to the vast betterment of the United States” if Nixon resig-ricd **Determined To Stay” “The President is aware of these expressions but is determined to stay in office ^d fulfill his obligation to the American people,” Warren said. (In a telephone call to the New York Times, Ronald L. Ziegler, Nixon’s press secretary, noted that Wadiington was rife with rumors. “All that have been presented to me today are f^ise, and the one that heads the list is the one that says President Nixon intends to resign,” Ziegler said. (“His attitude is one of determination that he will not be driven out of office by rumor, speculation, excessive charges or hypocrisy. He is up to the battle, he intends to fight it, and he feels he has a personal and constitutional responsibility to do so,” he said.) Intense interest was focused on a meeting Friday between Nixon and Vice President Gearald R. Ford, who in recent public statements has been more critical of Nixon’s Wate-gate acti(xis. But Warren said the subject of resignation was not even discussed at the hour-long meeting and the impeachment inquiry now under way in the House Judiciary Committee was discussed only ‘‘in a periferal way.” Ford said in Buffalo, N.Y., Friday night that ‘‘We did not even get into resignation, but I could infer that he has no intention of resigning.” He said his rapport with the President “is as good as it has ever been.” In other Watergate-related developments: —The President’s legal battle over Special Prosecutor Leon Jaworski’s subpoena for more tapes headed for a federal court hearing Monday , CHICAGO (UPI) — A rush hour elevated train slammed into the rear of another train which had made an abrupt halt between stations Friday night, tossing about more than 200 screaming passengers. Thomas Buck, spdcesman for the Chicago Transit Authority, said there were no deaths. At least 228 persons were injured and treated at three South Side hospitals. The majonty ot the injuries did not appear serious. Only a lew of those injured were hospitalized. “We still do not know the cause and will not know the cause until an extensive investigation is made,” Buck said. “All we know is that the first southbound train, the Englewood train, went into an emergency braking situation and came to an abrupt halt and was strudc in the rear by the Jackson Park train. ” Buck said the nxrforman of the first train apparently applied the emergency brake when he saw a caution light ahead. Some of the 600 persons on the two trains told of screaming passengers being jolted from their seats into the aisles. One of the injured was reported to be a pregnant woman, another a girl who suffered two brdcen arms. Police helicopters and fire department snorkels —tall, crane-like devices used to get firemen to high places —lifted the 20 to 30 most seriously injured off the tracks 20 feet above 29th and State Streets. “It sounded like we hit it twice,” said Larry Smith, 25, a passenger oti the second train. “Everything was thrown around and people got thrown out of their seats. ” Another passénger on the second train, Ricky Pirtle, 16, said, “We were moving pretty good and jthen I heard the brakes and the oigine stopped. We kind of slid and I saw the dust from the air brakes and then we hit. ” Barbara Bednar, riding in the last car of the first train, said, “I was scared. I’m still scared. I heard this screech behind me. I • looked around but I couldn’t see. Then bang. ’ ’ Scores of injured were ferried by another train to the nearest station, where buses were waiting to take them to hospitals. Many of the 600 passengers on the two trains were carrying home Mother’s Day presents when the accident occurred. In a similar collision between two Illinois Central Gulf commuter trains on Oct. 30,1972,45 persons were killed and more than 320 injured. TTie crash was only about six blocks away from Friday’s CTA collision.

In a confusing saga where the hijackers seemed to retrace their original flight after the government refund to pay a $400,000 ransom, the plane arrived back at Bogota’s Eldorado international airport at 8:40 a.m. (9:40 a.m. EDT) after a brief second flight from Pereira, where the aircraft had also origi^ted Friday night. The hijackers’ plans were still a mystery. The band of hijackers, believed to number four or six, took command of the jet late Friday after takeoff from Pereira in eastern Colombia to the capital city of B<^ota on a domestic flight. In Bogota, the hijackers let off a group of women and childr«i and said they wanted togo to Cuba with a ransom of $3^,000. The government refused to pay but promised safe passage out of the county. The hijackers, armed with pistols and hand grenades, had the plane refueled with 35,000 gallons of fuel—aiough for an eight-hour flight—and took off from Bogota early today. That’s when the hijack saga became confusing. The plane landed at Cali in western Colombia, where the hijackers increased their ransom demand to $400,000 and said the amount would go up again if the government insisted on its refusal to negotiate for the safety and plane and passengers. They received no reply, and after ordering breakfast they forced the pilot to fly'back to Pereira, the point of origin, for no apparent reason. After aJ brief, stop during which an airline mechanic went aboard and said there was no panic among the passenger hostages, the plane left again at 9:10 a.m. (10:10 a.m. EDT). Airport sources said they thou^it the hijackers wanted to go to Medellin or Bogota again, perhaps retracing the original flight. The government stood by its earlier statement that it “will not negotiate under threats, pressure and blackmail,” according to Rafael Naranjo Villegas, spokesman for President Misael Pastrana Borrero. 'The Cali control tower said the air pirates gave no time limit for the government to accede to their demands and did not repeat their threats to blow up the plane cind kill all aboard. , They also made no new mention erf their intended destination—first said to bé Cuba. MOSCOW (UPI) — “It was just unbelievable,” said Mrs. Lauroice Brant of IVüami, describing a confrontation between police and American and Soviet Jews headirtg for a picnic in the countryside outside Moscow. Soviet fwlice stopped a public bus carr^g a group of 10 Jews from the Miami area and about 70 Russians Friday as it traveled on a road 18 miles fropi Moscow, the Jews said. They reported that a line of police barred the group from continuing cm foot to its intended picnic site, but that it •camped anyway in a muddy field. Mrs. Michael M. Krop of Miami said that as the group trekked to the field, scores of police “followed us and surrounded us.” She said a policeman took her Loohiny Sideways A male chauvinist comments that woman’s intutition doesn’t always tell her that she’s right, but just that the m^ is wrong. camera but that four Jews wrestled it back. “We had heard stories such as this and really did not believe them. We thou^t they were exaggerations and perhaps fabrications. But the impression I got is that this happens all the time,” said her husband. “The police persisted in stopping me and holding on to me an4 demanding to see my passport over and over again,” Mrs. Brant said. Laurence Brant said the picnic was held despite the harassment. “We reached a clearing about 150 feet around. Believe it or not, even though the police were all around us, iind a woman plonked herself in our nrfdst with a loud radio, the picnic went on,” he said. “Most of the Jews had children with them,” Robert Blank, Hollywood, Fla., said. “TTiere were no placards. In no way was this a demonstration.” The Americans, members of a charter group of 100^ Florida dentists ai^ their wives, said they met the Soviet Jews through friends with whom they had been corresponding. BDEAKFAST PLANNED HERE GOP To Hear Big-Wigs Live Bomb Found In Times Square NEW YORK (UPI) - Bomb Squad police using specially trained dogs, Friday found a live pipe bomb in a locker at a crowded Times Square subway station and more explosives, handguns and ammunition in another locker nearby, the Police Department reported. None of the explosives went off. A Police Department spokesman said when the pipe lx»mb was found at about 4 p.m., Friday it was deactivated on the scene. It and the other explosives were later destroyed at the police firing range, the spokesman said. The spokesman said police were alerted to the presence of the bomb by two anonymous phone calls, apparently from the same person, which were placed to the the Daily News and to the special 911 police emergency number. The Bomb Squad went to a row of lockers near the IRT Times Square shuttle terminal at Seventh Ave. and 42nd St. There, the dogs sniffed out the bomb in one locker, the spokesman said. While officers dismantled that bomb, the dogs led other squad members to another locker nearby where the handguns, ammunition and more explosives wefe found, the spokesman said.
