Republican nominee for gover nor said Thursday that all news releases by political headquarters should conform tn the code of fair campaign practices In a formal statement issued from his home here Murray also said he regretted that a release by his Des Moines headquarters on the subject of Greenlease kid napping ransom money was sub ject to misinterpretation Gov Herschel Loveless Mur rays Democratic opponent and State Democratic Chairman Don ald Norberg have denounced the release as unfair and unethical Norberg said Murray should with draw the release Murray did not withdraw it Thursday His full statement fol lows I HAVE BEEN asked to com ment on the release to the press issued by my headquarters con cerning the fact that no evidence has been developed that shows that any of the Greenlease kid napping money came into Iowa as has been rumored during the current political campaign None of these rumors origi nated with the Murray headquar ters and the release was an at tempt to state that fact emphati cally I regret that the statement was subject to misinterpretation Of course all releases should be written to avoid misinterpretation as nearly as possible and of course should conform to the code of fair campaign practices Several other rumors of rather startling nature which may or may not betrue are being circu lated inthe campaign None of these can truthfully be attributed to the Murray candidacy These too probably should be de nounced but under the circum stances perhaps not lest these efforts too be misinterpreted THE STATEMENT to which Murray referred had said there was no evidence that any Green lease ransom money ever got into Iowa and then went on to say that there was evidence of association involving Barney Baker and the Teamsters Union which contrib uted to the Loveless campaign Norberg called the statement gutter politics and added H should be withdrawn by Mur ray Loveless said If they dont have a program or a candidate they have to re sort to other methods Its inter esting to see how this conforms with the great publicity about their signing of the fair cam paign pledge Republican State Chairman L L Jurgemeyer Clinton had no
