Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 1, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta PONDERING A QUESTION Democratic presidential nominee George McGovern pauses to chot wilh reporters as he left a Delroit bolel en route to a taping session at an educational television station. Despite the fact that all polls favor President Nixon, McGovern feels he can spring an upset in next week's election. Wedneiday, November 1, 1972 THE LETHMIDOt MRAID But is it too late to be of any help? McGovern and Daley make up By ROD CURRIE CHICAGO (CP) George McGovern and Boss Daley have made it up. Bui it al- ready may be loo little too late lo provide the needed lilt lo the faltering campaign of the Democratic presidential candidate. Illinois has been a crucial state in every United States presidential election for the last 56 years. And lo lake the state, a. Democrat needs the all-out support of Mayor Hich- ard Daley, the last oi the old- time American political bosses whose feelings were severely trampled in an ear- lier scuffle wilh McGovern. The split seemed irrepara- ble. But at a recent political spectacular here attended by at a plate, Daley and McGovern paraded through banquet hall after banquet hall in a remarkable demonstration of party unity. Daley topped it off by prom- ising he would deliver Illinois for McGovern in the Nov. 7 electioas, "just as we did in 1948 (for Harry Truman) and in 1960 (for John Next day, at a showcase luncheon, Daley presented McGovern to a discerning group of precinct cap- tains, through whom Daley gets his remarkable power as operator of the Cook County political machine. The county includes Chicago and the major population centres; much of rural Illinois is Re- publican. HAS 26 VOTES To the state winner go 26 electoral college same as Texas. Only Califor- nia wilh 45, New York with 41 and Pennsylvania with 27 electoral votes offer bigger prizes. A total of 270 such votes is required to win. The last time Illinois backed 2 loser was in 1916 when a majority voted for Charles Evans Hughes, a Republican defeated by Woodrow Wilson. Analysts say Illinois reflects more than any other state the spectrum of modern America e a v i I y industrialized, urban and rural. There are farmers in the south, blacks in Chicago ghettos, and mil- lions of while ethnic, blue-col- lar Americans whose origins sprang from Central and Easlern Europe There's a smattering of North American Irdians and Mexican-Ameri- cans. Together they have settled into a delicate balance be- tween Republicans and Demo- crats, providing the closest and most exciting state bat- tles in the last 30 years of presidential elections. John Kennedy won Illinois by only votes over Rich- ard Nixon in margin lhal gave Kennedy Ihe stale's electoral voles and Ihe presi- dency. Republicans still charge the political machine ol Cook County "slate" enough ballots lo deny Nixon the While House. SOUGHT COMPROMISE The (routle with the pugna- cious Daley, who at 70 has controlled county Democratic politics for 17 years, resulted from McGovern-led party re- forms that insisted on greater representation for women, blacks and young people in stale delegations to Ihe par- ty's national convention. Afler a series of court and inter-party battles, the 59- m a n, Daley-led delegation denied a place in Ihe July Miami Beach convention in favor of a rival, more bal- anced group. McGovern said later he had been eager to work out a compromise, but it wasn't to be. Although some labor lead- ers and others of the old party establishment who had their power curtailed under the re- forms have continued to snub McGovern, Daley surprisingly did an about-face, saying he would suppo-t the party nomi- nee, his personal feelings aside. Skeptics suggested that Daley had no choice if he wants to remain a force within the party and that Hi support was more token than actual. Another consideration is that the stronger Ihe show- ing of the national ticket In Illinois, (he better the for Daley's state slate, the es- sential ingredient of his con- tinued prestige and Influence. Stirling stories retold STIRLING speech festival was held recently with 13 teen-agers giving short talk! about their ancestors. The theme was "Stories of Stirling Families" with special honor going lo "Those who came and Stayed." There are still 25 families siding here whose ancestors were very early settlers in the village. Tliis activity was sponsored by Ihe Mutual Improvement Association of the LDS Church under the direction of speech director Mrs. Ruth Zaugg. The music, a vocal chorus, ukuleles and harp accompani- ment, was under the direction of music director Lyman Hardy. Marvyn Hogenson, president of the organization, was tbt narrator. The invention column Computer memory turns the trick By STACY V. JONES New York Times Service WASHINGTON -A person represenling a credit card may some day be able to prove his Identity through a computer's memory of Ins voice. Scientists at Bell Telephone laboratories were granted a patent this week for a system of automatic speaker verification. The voice sample is recorded by several repetitions of the same phrase. The inventors used "we were away a year because it had served in olher research. But "my chil- dren are Mary, Ann and Her- bert" would probably do as well. The characlerislics, including resonant frequencies, voice pitch and intensity, are com- bined and stored in (he com- puter's memory, along wilh measurements of variability in the several utterances. Patent went to James L. Flanagan, head of the tcoustics research department at Murray Hill, N.J.; Robert C. Lummis of the EDP Syslems Centre at Piscataway, K.J., and George R. Doddington, who in now wilh Texas Instruments, Inc. Five seek three seats at W.

Thompson nnd Murray IMncKeiuie; assisted by Vom .In-ilnn, Rojwr Thompson, D.ivc Thomson, Ken Hill Wizen nnd Doug Leeds. In operation, which so far has been experimental, an appli- cant gives his name through a microphone or telephone to the computer and repeats the rec- orded phrase. The computer compares it with the original and decides whether they are sufficiently close lo establish that the speaker is the same. The invention may be used in the future by telephone credit i card holders. Bell labs believes it should also serve crecVt card companies, retail stores and banks. A former signal corps engi- neer who now has his own lab- oratory was granled a patent this week for a liquid crystal I modulator that he believes will eventually help bring three-di- mensional television pictures into Lhe home. Thomas F. Hanlon ol Fort Lee, N.J received patenl 3.- for a method of control- ling black and white images by passing light, under ultrasonic vibration, through a glass cell lhal contains nemalic liquid crystals. At present it is being developed for two-dimensional prinling on photographic film. Hanlon r e d i c 15, however, that his invention will form the basis for holographic transmis- sion, allowing television aclors lo leave the flat screen and move about the room. "The viewer will be able lo walk around the he raid, "and see a front and side view or join them in their aerial image." Tliis, he admits, is several years away.
