Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta May 1074 THE LETHBftlDOB HERALD-3 Ted wrong man for wrong By GODFREY SPERLING JR. Christian Science Monitor WASHINGTON A new survey of Democratic leadership across the United States shows that Senator Edward M. Kennedy has suffered a dramatic dip in support for the 1976 presidential nomination. As of now only 38 percent of the 103 state chairmen and national committeemen who responded to a questionnaire see Senator Kennedy as the man out front for 1976. Last November a similar with 98 leaders showed 77 percent viewing Senator Kennedy as the front runner. Watergate clearly was the factor shaping this of Senator Kennedy. These Democratic leaders who have changed their minds now are convinced that they need a as a candidate and that because of his car accident at in which a secretary Senator Kennedy no longer should be given consideration. There is also the often unspoken fear for safety that a Kennedy candidacy would produce. Said one state committeewoman from the must be a new face. The problem is for one to emerge in the face of the Kennedy holding tactic. I believe Kennedy is Said a Midwest national blemishes now stand out because of Watergate. I was for him before. But if he is he will be haunted by Chappaquiddick. He's the wrong man for the In previous surveys since including last Senator Kennedy has monopolized almost all of the votes. Support for like Senators Henry M. Jackson of Washington and Walter F. Mondale of was small and inconsequential. But in the new survey Senator Jackson emerges as a strong runnerup for the picking up among 25 percent of these leaders. Following Senator Jackson is Senator Mondale with 17 percent. Others receiving four percent or less and in this order are Senator Birch Bayh of Senator Edmund S. Muskie of Senator Lloyd Bentsen of Arkansas Governor Dale and Senator Frank Church of Idaho. Those with one vote each are Georgia Governor Jimmy Senator Hubert H. Humphrey of Senator George McGovern of South Illinois Governor Daniel and Alabama Governor George C Wallace. Other significant elements in the of the leaders said they thought a darkhorse candidate would emerge in 1976. Forty-three said to this question. The remainder did not answer. Wallace's low standing in this survey is to be contrasted with polls of the Democratic rank-and-file which show him a strong second to Senator Kennedy as its choice for the 1976 presidential nomination.

Democratic reforms coming slowly but surely Thailand out of step with rest of Asia By DANIEL SOUTHERLAND Chrlitlan Science Monitor BANGKOK Thailand seems to be out of step with the rest of Southeast Asia. The Thais are trying to implement democratic reforms at a time when authoritarian rulers elsewhere in the region are tightening their controls. Once considered one of the most traditional-bound nations in Thailand suddenly has in many one of the most open. Some Western experts concluded years ago that what the Thais really wanted was authoritarian government. But demonstrators swarming through the streets of Bangkok and the overthrow of the country's military rulers last October proved them wrong. UNEASY Many Thais are uneasy with the new situation. They contend that changes are coming too quickly and that the country's current caretaker government is weak and unable to maintain law and order. Other particularly the country's impatient complain on the not enough has changed and that the same old corrupt and conservative elite is running the country. But the central fact remains that things are changing. Perhaps more slowly than many of the students would but more rapidly than they had in several previous decades. And some of the changes are likely to be irreversible. Things are happening here now which would have been unthinkable just a year ago under military has become fashionable in Thai political for to say that Thailand needs little more socialism.'' What people usually mean by this is paying more attention to the needs of the or instituting a social security legalizing labor and increasing the number of industries offering a minimum wage. But regardless of what the word socialism may mean to the all the talk about it does seem to indicate a greater awareness of the gap between the rich and the poor and the need to do something about it. LECTURE a very respectable association of Thai ladies invited a girl student activist to speak the other she gave them a stern lecture. The student warned her elders that they were spending too much money on cosmetics and beauty parlors. In many parts of the that might have seemed far from revolutionary. But in it was talked about. small group of young women appeared in front of the National Assembly without invitation recently to demand constitutional guarantees of women's and it made front-page news in the Bangkok press. When photographers tried to take pictures of the eight or nine they hid shyly behind their protest banners. But the fact that they were out there at all was news for Thailand. When photographers tried to take pictures of the eight or nine they hid shyly behind their protest banners. But the fact that they were out there at all was news for Thailand. Thai which was never completely now feels free to criticize all sorts of official failings. The only taboo subject is King Bhumibol Adulyadej. He is considered above criticism. But allowing for that one the Thai press is now by far the freest in Southeast Asia. That distinction used to belong to the but Manila's newspapers currently are languishing under martial law.

Prime Minister Sanya Thammasak promptly met with representatives elected by the farmers and listened attentively to their grievances. would have dared to hold a demonstration like that under the old said Seni head of Thailand's Democratic Party. know now that they can make their voices Many of the students who helped bring about these changes are fearful that the military will step stage a and take over again. Thailand has had so many coups that it would be foolish to rule this possibility out altogether. ELECTIONS But it is likely that the Thais will get their chance to hold elections and to experiment with democracy for quite some time before the generals dare even contemplate stepping in again. Military intervention at this time would trigger considerable popular resentment. Most of the military would have to think twice before countering moves toward the establishment of parliamentary democracy which have the strong support of Thailand's revered King Bhumibol. It was the King who some three months ago appointed a convention to select new National Assembly members. Some Thais argue that the new Assembly is too conservative.
