last scheduled joint ap pearance before the Nov 5 election Stevenson seeking reelection to a second Senate term denied accusations by Burditt that he was one of the Senates big spenders That accusation is false and hypocritical Stevenson said We ought to leave cheap politics and the politics of Watergate behind us Not a single study Ive cited is false or phoney I leave it to this group to study the record and decide said Burditt a former state legislator waging his first Senate campaign The two candidates appeared at the annual meeting of the Illinois Associated Press Editors Association Burditt repeating a consistent campaign theme called infla tion the nations most serious problem and said legislation sought by Stevenson would have added millions of dollars in in flationary federal spending I have voted against waste fat and surplus in the budget said Stevenson who contended hat some proposals advocated by Burditt were more gas company as naive at y best He said such a federal agency would never be able to tionary than his Stevenson and Burditt also disagreed sharply on the issue of revenue sharing There are far better ways to assist state and governments than by in discriminately scattering money to the winds Stevenson said Burditt however supported revenue sharing because spending decisions are made by visible political officials at the local level rather than by some hidden bureaucrats in Washington Burditt criticized a Stevenson proposal to create a federal oil serve as a yardstick for private industry as Stevenson had pro posed Stevenson defended the pro posal as an elementary step to assert the authority of the VS in acquisition of oil The two candidates were questioned by a panel consisting of John Gardner of the Southern Hlinoisan in Carbon dele Max McCrohon of the Chicago Tribune Ralph Otwell of the Chicago SunTimes and Edward Armstrong of the Spr ingfield JournalRegister Adlai Stevenson campus groups want to talk to Brandt again j week one Asked about Brandt Hawley K Earle Stibitz head ByHenrydeFiebre Of The Southern Illinoisan A campus leader at South ern Illinois University at Car bondale is urging that Warren W Brandt the top contender for the schools presidency be asked back for interviews with campus groups That action comes in the wake of the refusal by Albert Somit a candidate with strong SIUC faculty support to ac cept the presidential job Brandts campus visit is be ing pushed by John Hawley a professor of higher educa tion He heads a new group on campus the University Fo rum which represents all con stituency groups Hawley said Saturday would ask SIU Board of Trus tees chairman Ivan A Elliott jr of Carmi to Invite Brandt to come to Carbondale to meet with campus groupf Brandt previously met with the groups during the summer when he was one of five can didates chosen by a campus presidential search commit tee Elliott identified Brandt Friday as the top candidate for the SIUC presidency Elliott said late Saturday night of Hawleys proposal The constituency groups were not asked to make the judgment We asked the pre sidential screening committee to do that Saying he thcught reinter views would mske the selec tion process much more diffi cult to manage Elliott blunt ly said I dont think its any of their businsss He said he would tell Haw ley that he does not think his proposal is advisable I dont think a plebiscite on picking a presidential can L didate is going to be produc tive youre going to get to the point where youre going to run anybody off he said Meanwhile Brandt 51 the former president of Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond met with Elliott in St Louis Friday and Satur day to discuss conditions un der which he would accept the presidency Elliott report ed In a telephone interview Sat urday evening Brandt said Mr Elliott and I have met and talked at considerable length Asked if he was still a can didate Brandt said That would have to come from him Elliott said that further dis cussions with Brandt have been scheduled but declined to say when and where I anticipate well have an announcement next week one way or the other on he said Developments in the SlU presidential selection process continued to move rapidly Fri day and Saturday after Elliott made the stunning announce ment Friday morning that So met had in the space of two days accepted the job and then twice rejected it after a misunderstanding in job conditions was discovered Several campus constituen cy group heads had said So mit executive vice president of State University of New York at Buffalo was their preferred candidate for the presidency Hawley said Saturday that he would hold a closed meet ing Monday with all constit uency group heads to discuss the Somit incident and the presidential selection proceu Asked about Brandt Hawley said I heard him when he was here during the summer for interviews with constituen cy He was fifth on my list of all the five I saw Since Brandt does not want to come here without campus support I will ask Elliott to bring him back for campus interviews Another constituency group head has said privately that of the four candidates he interviewed during the sum mer Somit was his first choice and Brandt was his last choice Brandt asked Saturday if he would accept an invitation to return to campus for Inter views said I dont really want to react to mat If Mr Elliot extends the invitation I would respond Agreeing with the Idea of reinviting Brandt to campus E Earle Stibitz head of the SIUC Faculty Senate said Perhaps some greater ex posure of Dr Brandt might be desirable in light of deve lopments However he said in any case the presidential selection process should be al lowed to follow through In another development it was learned Saturday that Brandt was a final candidate six years ago for the presi dency of Western Illinois Uni versity in Macomb According to a source who was close to the selection pro cess Brandt was one of three final candidates for the West ern presidency in 1968 At that time Brandt was a vice presi dent at Virginia Polytechnic Institute The job eventually went to John Bernhard who is now president of Western Michigan University Ironically Western Illinois new president Leslie F pass was hired as dean of the college of arts and scien ces at VPI by Brandt who at that time in the late 1960s was vice president for acade mic affairs In 1968 when Brandt be came VPIs executive vice president Malpass was moved into Brandts academic affairs job Brandt said Saturday that he and his wife are close per sonal friends of Malpass and his wife Brandt has been a consul tant to the governing board of Virginia Commonwealth since he resigned his ayear job as the schools pre sident Oct 1 He became the universitys first president when it was established in May 1969 through the merger a medical colege and professional school in Rich mond Virginia Commonwealth is the largest university in the state enrolling more more 17000 students Brandt said only he was seeking new challenges when he announced his resig nation in August Reportedly however friction between him and politicallyconnected offi cials of the medical school who did not approve of the merger which led to the new university led to his ouster SIUC has been without a permanent president since Da vid R Derge resigned March 14 Hiram H Lesar dean of the law school has served in the job in the interim pending appoint meat of a new president ;
