The it pleasant. News vol. 92, no. 134mt. Pleasant Iowa monday evening june 8, 1970 Price to cents Clear these Days by John Chamberlain the primaries bring out the a silent majority would end financing of Thailand troops the results of the june 2 primaries in various parts of the country Call for sober analysis by the White House political strategists. Obviously president Richard Nixon had hoped that George Wallace would fall Flat on his face in the Runoff for the democratic gubernatorial nomination in Alabama. If Wallace had been Defeated by Albert Brewer the incumbent governor it would have made things much easier for the republicans in the South. However with Wallace proving that he Hadnot lost his punch with the Whites in the districts outside of the affluent a country club boxy areas the third party Specter remains to plague the Nixon strategists in their planning for 1972. Nixon will have to stay Well to the right to win the deep South against Wallace. Nevertheless if the Wallace Victory promises to make things Tough for the Nixon ites in places where the school busing Issue provokes hot controversy a give us Back our schools a cries George Wallace the primary results in other parts of the nation tend to vindicate the administrations silent majority thesis in ways that Nixon himself had not counted on. The White House political strategists in their desire to keep hands off local Pri Mary squabbles gave no help whatsoever to the senatorial aspirations of Young Anderson Carter in new Mexico. Carter a conservative who had been state chairman in 1964 for the Barry Coldwater presiden tial Campaign was supposedly the underdog in a primary fight against Liberal Republican governor David cargo for the . Senatorial nomination. As an incumbent party office Holder cargo counted on the benevolent neutrality of the Republican Natl committee. He got the neutrality but he failed lamentably to get the votes. Carter with the help of some pinpoint Money from the american conservative Union won by a two to one margin. Since new Mexico republicans obviously considered Carter the a Nixon Many in spite of Nixon a own standoffish attitude the White House has gained a Victory in new Mexico in spite of itself. Andy Carter will face the incumbent democratic senator Joseph Montoya in the fall. He has a very Good Chance of beating Montoya in a state that tends to support the Nixon foreign policy and fiscal conservatism in general. Carter got forty six per cent of the vote when he ran for senator the last time against Clinton Anderson who is a emr. New Mexico himself. The Washington information is that Clinton Anderson has no love for his colleague Montoya so there could be some ticket scratching in new Mexico next fall. Washington up a Senate democratic Leader Mike Mansfield urged the administration today to Stop a Green backing Thailand troops whether in South Vietnam or in Cambodia. Mansfield noted previously secret testimony that the United states Impact of creating Gene May be great Madison wis. Up a things have remained pretty Calm in the scientific Community at the University of Wisconsin despite the announcement its Nobel prize winning scientist h. Gobind Khorana has artificially created a Gene. The discovery by the Brilliant publicity shy native of India could Lead to the eventual artificial creation of life and cure of diseases like diabetes cancer and some mental disorders. Too Khorana who shared the 1968 Nobel prize for earlier work on genes which determine hereditary characteristics in humans and animals will leave Wisconsin for the Massachusetts Institute of technology later this year. Scientists previously Learned How to take Small particles of genetic material out of living cells making copies of natural genetic material in a test tube. The 47-year-old native of Jaipur India was the first to show that genes can be synthesized from atoms or simple chemical building blocks with no natural Gene required As a Model in the reaction mixture. Too Khorana was hesitant to predict the Impact of his discovery but said u might eventually permit scientists to manipulate the biology of a living system. The cure of genetic diseases might be provided by using tissues of the affected individuals with a Supply of Normal genes manufactured artificially. A in the Long Distant future the knowledge might allow for genetic planning of individuals has been financing troops in South Vietnam. A i understand also that if thai troops go into Cambodia Well very Likely be Green backing them just As we Are in South Vietnam a Mansfield told reporters. A i would like to see Money for thai troops in other countries Cut he urged that Congress go into the matter a very information on the transaction involving the thais was contained in a heavily censored transcript of Senate foreign relations committee hearings. The top secret military a contingency plan apparently included use of american ground combat forces to protect the thai government if necessary against a it communist takeover. Supreme court to Rule on loyalty oath Washington up a the i last time in More than a year As an supreme court decided today to eight Man Bench. Justice Harry q. Rule next term on a modified state Blackmun will be sworn in As the loyalty oath requiring teachers and ninth member tuesday employees to swear support of the u. S.

Four of them happened Over the weekend and tailoring i one Monda it morning. People to fit patterns turning out athletes or intellectuals a Khorana said. Too it also might mean doctors could remove the Gene that produces a cancer tendency in a family and replace it Wii a a healthier Gene. Khorana said now that rules for chemically synthesizing genes have been determined it is theoretically in any event the silent majority possible to manufacture any desired went for Andy Carter against a Gene in a test tube Well known personality who had been elected governor twice albeit by Small margins. In a name recognition poll governor cargo had received a 99 per cent identification vote but identification did not mean approval at the ballot Box. Cargo had been off on a fishing trip when the University of new Mexico Campus exploded. National guardsmen in his absence tabbed several people including newsmen in an Effort to control student rioters. Apparently the Public reacted against the governors absence. It also reacted against the rioting the guardsmen weren to blamed for the stabbing because they had the sense to use bayonets instead of bullets. The Public in new Mexico May also have turned thumbs Down on the idea that circus tactics constitute a political plus for a candidate. Cargo had been a flamboyant hippodrome. When the Republican primary voters looked beyond the flamboyance they found nothing there. In picking Carter to carry the senatorial Ball for them the voters endorsed All the silent majority Virtues that Nixon and Agnew have been commending too in Middlesex county in the state of new Jersey the student left got a de Facto reprimand when Lewis Kaden a 27-year-old anti Vietnam insurgent was beaten in the u. S. House of representatives democratic primary by the Veteran representative Edward j. Fatten. Patten an anti communist has always been a supporter of Freedom for the captive nations of Eastern Europe. His record angered the activists among the Princeton University students who flocked into his 15th congressional District Bailiwick in a a new politics attempt to Knock him off. However Patten won by a two to one majority which Means practical use of the artificial genes to produce life alter living organisms or cure disease however Are Many years off. Requests some Security measures Des Moines up a chief House clerk William Kendrick uneasy Over the recent bombings of two Public buildings in Iowa today asked the Iowa executive Council to establish Security measures to protect the House and Senate Chambers. A a in a not too alarmed about thie professional arsonist or criminal a Kendrick said a but in a concerned about the hoodlum who wants to express a disregard for the Council did no to take immediate action but instead asked Kendrick and his Senate counterpart Carroll Lane to draw up some proposed rules for the two Chambers and submit them at a later Date. Since the dynamite bombings of the Des Moines and Ames police Headquarters Kendrick said at least one person is on guard in the Senate and House Chambers during working hours. That the Princeton be fingers and buttonholes flopped dismally in their first attempt to influence new Jersey politics. Pattern thinks the a Long hairs have gotten out some votes for his opponent but the net effect of their work was counterproductive. If the students can to even win in a democratic primary maybe the White mouse can Stop worrying about the move to give Campus radicals two weeks off in october to Campaign for an anti Nixon slate.
