Craig Lawing. D Mecklenburg. Says he has Given up his f ight to revive no fault Auto insurance legislation. Lawing blamed rep. Sneed High. A Cumber land chairman of the House insurance committee for no faults demise. A it All boiled Down to the fact that Sneed High was determined that at this session of the general Assembly there will not be any no fault legislation Lawing said. After the House insurance committee voted 14-10 on March 27 to kill what was left of a Senate passed no fault Bill Lawing went to work to get action on another no fault measure. Lawing said High had told him to get the substitute measure lined up. He said the Bill was drafted and arrangements made to have the Senate insurance committee meet with the House insurance group. Kennedy meets with Brandt Bonn Germany a sen. Edward m. Kennedy Here on a two Day visit held discussions with West German Chancellor Willy Brandt. Details of the sunday meeting were not revealed. The Massachusetts Democrat was invited by the Bonn society for foreign politics to speak on relations today. But at the last minute. Sneed High would t go along with Lawing said. A the would t Call a meeting of the House committee. When asked for comment on Lawing s assertion that he would not Call a committee meeting. High said a i did t Call a meeting be cause we didst have anything really to take Lawing said he thought the no fault Bill he had prepared was better than the one passed by the Senate. Under the proposal an injured Motorist would have received up to $5,000 for economic losses regardless of who was at fault in the Accident. Up to $5,000 More could have been paid if the Motorist had died. For economic loss in excess of $5,000 the injured Motorist could have sued. He also could have sued if his medical expenses exceeded $500 or if his injury was permanent or if it r e s u 11 e d in serious disfigurement. Lawing said several provisions that had aroused opposition to the other Bill Haa been stricken from his Bill. He said these included provisions for recovery of property damage and provisions dealing with no fault insurance rate making by Louis Harris president Nixon a Over All standing with the american people has risen 5 Points to 31 per cent positive since he embarked on his stepped up television and radio Campaign. During the past month Nixon has engaged in a heavy schedule of Public exposure in Many parts of the country holding press conferences open sessions and making speeches. Prior to this he had reached his All time Low of 26 per cent positive. The president however is by no Means out of the Woods. One Bottom line indication that the president is still in real trouble merged when by 49-34 per cent a plurality of the people agreed with the statement that a when All of the investigations and crises have finished president Nixon will be found to have violated the Law. As was True with vice president Back in february the Public Felt the same Way but by a much closer 43-38 per cent. On a whole spate of separate readings. The president s standing is heavily weighted on the negative Side a by 48-39 per cent a plurality does not feel that Richard Nixon a is a Man of High integrity a precisely the same division that existed in february. A by 80-16 per cent four in every five people give him Low Marks on the Way he has a handled the watergate this showing is Only marginally better than the 81-13 per cent negative rating he received in february. A by 80-15 per cent the president is rated negatively on his a handling of the watergate tapes Quot again Only slightly better than the 81-12 per cent negative standing he had in february. A by 83-12 per cent he is Given negative Marks on his a handling of corruption in government a almost identical to the 83-10 per cent negative rating he received in february. Perhaps most telling of All is the fact that when asked about his ability to inspire Confidence by 78-15 per cent the Public gives him negative Marks the lowest Point yet recorded in a Harris Survey since Nixon assumed office in 1969.

The net Impact of his recent flurry of Public exposures has been to impress people that he is trying and to give him higher Marks on the general conduct of his office but the underlying troubles of doubt and suspicion about his integrity and ultimate guilt regarding water Gate still remain As Strong As Ever.
