Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 1, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, November 1, 1972 THE LETHMIDOt MMAIO 39 PONDERING A QUESTION Democratic presidential nominee George McGovern pauses to chat with reporters os he left a Detroit hotel 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. 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 too little too late to provide the needed lift to 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 to take the state, a Democrat needs the all-out support of Mayor Rich- ard Daley, the last of the old- time American political bosses whose feelings were severely trampled in an ear- lier scuffle with 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 elections, "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 with 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 industrialized, urban and rural. There are farmers in the south, blacks in Chicago ghettos, and mil- lions of white ethnic, blue-col- lar Americans whose origins sprang from Central and Eastern Europe. There's a smattering of North American Indians 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 that gave Kennedy the state's electoral voles and the presi- dency. Republicans still charge the political machine ol Cook County "stole" enough ballols to deny Nixon the While House. SOUGHT COMPROMISE The trouble wilh Ihe 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 delegalions to Ihe par- ty's national convention. After a series of court and inter-party battles, the 59- m a n, Daley-led delegation was denied a place in the 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 support 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 the show- ing of the national ticket in Illinois, the 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 talks about their ancestors. The theme was "Stories of Stirling Families" with special honor going to "Those who came and Stayed." There are still 25 families siding here whose ancestors were very early settlers in the village. This activity was sponsored by the 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 person representing a credit card may some day be able to prove his identity through a computer's memory of his voice. Scienlists 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 other research. But "my chil- dren are Mary, Ann and Her- bert" would probably do as well. The characteristics, including resonant frequencies, voice pitch and intensity, are com- bined and stored in the com- puter's memory, along wilh measurements of variabilily in the several utterances. Patent went to James L. Flanagan, head of the acoustics research department at Murray Hill, N.J.; Robert C. Lummis of the EDP Systems Centre at Piscataway, N.J., and George R. Doddington, who in now with Texas Instruments, Inc. Five seek three seats at W. Creek CLARESHOLM district fanners arc contesting three seats on Ihe Willow Creek school division board in school division 28. Lloyd Barr of Fort Maclcod, a rancher, is seeking re- election. The seat is also sought by Rulon Hirschc, a district farmers. Dr. Frank Baker was the only nominee in the rural and town subdivision of Nanlon and has been declared elected by re- luming officer Hay Collision. Jon Eaton and George White- h e a d are seeking Ihe Clares- holm rural subdivision seat. Mr. Whitehead served for a year af- ler the resignation of Bob Lind- say. He Is also on Ihe council of the Willow Creek MD and has been elecled reeve again. Kay W h i I e of Nanlon, who has served for moro than 20 years and as chairman for Ihe past three years, has decided not to try for another term on the board. In operation, which so far has been experimental, an appli- cant gives his name through a microphone or telephone to the computer and repeats Ihe rec- orded phrase. The computer compares il with the original and decides whether they are sufficiently close to establish that the speaker is the same. The invention may be used in Ihe future by telephone credil 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 granted a patent this week for a liquid crystal modulator thai he believes will cvenlually help bring three-di- mensional television pictures into the home. Thomas F. Hanlon of Fort Lee, N.J., received patent for a method of control- ling black and white images by passing light, under ultrasonic vibration, through a glass cell thai contains nematic liquid cryslals. Al present it is being developed for two-dimensional printing on photographic film. Hanlon predicts, however, that his invention will form the basis for holographic transmis- sion, allowing television actors lo leave the flat screen and move about the room. "The viewer will be able to walk around the he said, "and see a front and side view or join them in their aerial image." This, he admits, is several years away. The Kalvar Cor- poration, New Orleans, holds a license under the patent. When a patented purse is snalchedt from a woman's hand, Ihe pull on Ihe handle Iriggers a loud' alarm inside. The horn keeps sounding until someoody familiar with the mechanism turns if off. Richard W. Dixon of llock- veille, Md., an industrial ma- chinist who got patent llu's week, plans to manufac- ture the guardian purse him- self. Disturbed at accounts of muggings a n d purse snatch- ings, he decide that the small, hnnd-hold devices on the mar- ket were too slow.
