Financial disclosure opposed Washington a a Senate passed Campaign Reform Bill that includes Little noticed financial disclosure provisions will be before a House committee next week when Congress returns from its easter recess. Chairman Wayne Hays a Ohio of the House administration committee already has said he opposes the Bill because it provides for full Public financing of presidential and congressional campaigns. The disclosure provisions also Are Likely to encounter opposition. A number of members have denounced such disclosure proposals As amounting to an invasion of their privacy. The disclosure provisions were perhaps the most surprising yet least noticed part of the legislation sent to the House by a 53-32 vote last thursday. Shortly before Senate passage sen. George d. Aiken r-vt., said a it is quite obvious that no Bill at All will become Law which resembles the s one As it now the disclosure provisions would apply to members of Congress candidates for Congress in a general election the president the vice president and All other employees of the government including members of the armed forces paid Over $25,000 a year.

Saginaw Mich. A Democrat Bob Traxler has ended the republicans 42-year hold on Michigan a 8th congressional District with a Victory that vice president Gerald r. Ford called a bad Omen for the nation. A one party control is not Good for America a Ford said after Traxler took slightly More than 51 per cent of the vote tuesday in special election that pitted him against Republican James Sparling or. A and the trend in congressional elections now is for the democrats to end up with an overwhelming majority in the House. This will mean a legislative in Washington today president Nixon was depicted by the White House As neither dismayed nor disheartened by Traxler a Victory. A the president believes that Jim Sparling fought a Good fight and if a Man is willing to run hard and Campaign hard on the issues the president will never turn away an Opportunity to help that candidate a Deputy press Secretary Gerald l. Warren said. Democratic National chairman Robert Strauss said in Washington that Fords complaints about a potentially too Strong Congress contradicted other political complaints by the vice president. 12th Man is killed on Street san Francisco a a Young Man was gunned Down in the Street tuesday night in what police said appeared to be the 18th random attack on Whites by one or More Black assailants. The latest victim in the so called a a Zebra shootings was Nelson t. Shields in 23, who was fatally wounded by a gunman who shot him in the Back at Point Blank Range. A it looks like another Zebra Case a said police inspector Gus Coreris referring to the police code name for the Case. A total of 12 persons have been killed and six wounded since last november. In each Case the victims were White and the assailant was Black. Other similarities to previous shootings were the weapon used a .32-caliber pistol and the apparent Lack of motivation. Shields the son of Dupont co., executive in Wilmington del., was shot three times outside a Home in a quiet residential Street where he had come with a Friend to pick up a Rug. The shooting in the Ingleside District was several Miles from the Western addition area where most of the previous shootings took place. A neighbor who heard the shots told police she saw a Black Man running up the Street. Police said the gunman apparently approached Shields on foot and shot him in the Back As he Bent Over the tailgate of the car. James m. Sparling or. Concedes defeat a that strikes me As an interesting posture for him to be in a Strauss said a because three weeks ago he was talking about a do nothing Congress that was unable to come to grips with Ford said the election would have no bearing on How Congress treats the president in regard to the impeachment inquiry now being conducted by the House judiciary committee. Sparling said he did not blame his defeat on Nixon who made a personal appearance in the District last week. But Traxler who campaigned As much against the president As against his gop opponent disagreed and added that Nixon is the problem of republicans not democrats. His Victory gave the 8th District seat to democrats for the first time since 1932. It marked the fourth time in five special elections this year that normally Gap areas have fallen to the democrats. But it was the first time Nixon took an Active role in trying to Stem the tide. With All of the 296 precincts in the District unaccounted for in unofficial j. Robert Traxler grins after Victory a wire photos returns Traxler had 59,918 votes Sparling 56,575. The results gave Traxler 51.4 per cent of the vote. Traxler said after his Victory that voters knew that perhaps a new moral Force was needed in the White House. A and while we did no to dwell on watergate.

Said he had talked with Sparling a and he informed me that watergate was not the principal Factor in his defeat. The unions simply did a better Job than the Republican organization in getting out the Sparling said he would decide later whether to Challenge Traxler in november when the seat opens up again in a regular election. He insisted Nixon was not invited to Michigan to Campaign for him. But rather to a get out of the White House where he is now isolated and face the in his three hour tour in the District last week Nixon avoided heavily democratic big City areas where unemployment hovers around to per cent. He concentrated instead on the Small communities where the districts cop strength lies. He Drew a generally warm Welcome from thousands although there were some protesters. Nixon s position weakened Saginaw Mich. A the democratic Victory in Michigan a special congressional election is a blow to president Nixon a Hopes of demonstrating political popularity to Rexi lican House members considering impeachment. Previous gop setbacks in House contests in Johnstown pa., Cincinnati Ohio and grand rapids Mich., have made Many republicans fearful of a cop electoral disaster in next november a congressional elections. Many congressional observers feel this has increased the likelihood that Many republicans May seek political safety by voting for an impeachment Resolution if the House judiciary committee approves one. In this atmosphere. Nixon decided to do his first campaigning since his own 1972 re election. Figuring he would be blamed for any cop setback Here he decided he should try to get in on any possibility of Triumph. Such a Victory would surely have been cited by the White House to cop doubters As evidence Nixon retains much support in the country and that a pro impeachment vote would be politically risky. At the time of the visit six Days before the election there was considerable senti ment among the 8th districts political observers that Republican James Sparling or. Had Cut substantially into the Lead indicated by polls for Democrat Bob Traxler and might even win. But when the ballots were counted tuesday night the vote for Sparling in the Rural areas Nixon visited fell below the Normal Republican percentages. It was insufficient to offset the democratic surge for Traxler in More populous Bay City and Saginaw where labor unions Are Strong. The Traxler Victory in a District the democrats last won in Franklin d. Roosevelt a 1932 landslide can Only be read As a further sign of weakness on the part of republicans and the president. Of this increases the likelihood of impeachment it is not because of the 8th districts new congressman. Sparling also said he would vote to impeach if the evidence warranted. The real Impact will come Traxler noted from gop House members already in Washington. A they Are the people that have to decide just How big an Albatross he a going to be around their necks in november a he told his cheering supporters
