He estimated that between 50 and 60 per cent of new claimants would be given per- sonal interviews Among the categories of claimants scheduled to be given personal interviews are persons who voluntarily quit their persons transferr- ing from maternity or sick benefits to regular those who have transferred their claims from one section of the country to another and persons whose skills are in high demand where they live NEW SYSTEM Mr. Andras last April an- nounced the new system under which the UIC increased a number of its offices and IT PAYS TO 14MHIQ pfOVUM PMMDW VMMpOflBttMl M lOW OOK.

He described the old system as order approach under which claimants had little or no op- portunity to deal directly with UIC personnel. Mr Andras said the expand- ed interview system represents preventive approach to misuse of the UIC program rather than what we have been doing in the past which was a more reactive approach administration simply was not geared to do this before Now it is geared to do he said.

Orin Atkins told the Senate Watergate committee that fund-raising methods should be abandoned in favor of public financing of political campaigns. Atkins said former com- merce secretary Maurice Stans telephoned him in early 1V72 and asked for a contribution to the Nixon cam- paign and a advertise- ment in a Republican brochure. Stans never asked specifically for a corporate contribution or made any threats or Atkins but felt more or less obligated Committee chairman Sam J Ervin ask- ed Atkins if he would agree that method of raising campaign contributions borders on much Atkins said. whose firm was fin- ed and who personally was fined for making an illegal corporate said was never any doubt in my mind where the money was going to come from. I know what I had in the and it didn't come anywhere close to that Atkins said top Ashland executives agreed that Clyde external affairs vice- woqld stop in Geneva during a trip across Europe and pick up the money requested by Stans in cub from a Swiss bank. The funds were drawn from a subsidiary of Ashland and carried on the books as an in- vestment in an undeveloped so that the with- drawal would not be noticed and would not be written off for tax purposes. Atkins said he knew the con- tribution was illegal but view- ed it somewhat as the prohibi- tion of alcohol during the 1920s. Atkins said that early this year he received a letter from lawyer Kenneth addressed to him and his wife at their which noted that they had made a contribu- tion to the Committee to Re- elect the although the contribution was not made in his or his wife's name. By that Atkins the company had informed the special Watergate prosecution force of its illegal contribution and the company's lawyer wrote Parkinson' telling him the contribution had come from corporate funds and ask- ed that it be as it was on July 16.
