THE OHIO COUNTY TIMES, HARTFORD, KENTUCKY, AUGUST 28, 1975 4 JACK ANDERSON'S Washington Merry-Go-Round With Joe Spear WASHINGTON -- Sources close to George Wallace have told us it is a virtual certainty that the Alabama Governor will make a run for the presidency as a third- party candidate. He is geared up and raring to go, these insiders claim. Only a severe physical setback would keep him out of the 1976 Presidential sweepstakes. Wallace will make an appearance at the Democratic convention, say our sources, and attempt to win the nomination. He might even accept the number-two spot. But he fully realizes his chances of winning are remote. Therefore he will take full advantage of the Democratic spotlight, posing throughout the convention as the hero of the "common man" opposed by the "party bosses." Then he will announce he is forming a third- party ticket. Political experts who have been watching the Wallace effort closely say he will run a strong race. Wallace himself is said to be showing confidence. Regular party leaders have been courting him assiduously, and this, he believes, has given him a new respectability. He also feels he will win a large sympathy vote because of his brush with death at the hands of a would-be assassin. He sees himself as another Franklin i:i:!:i: " :i:i:i:i Paul Harvey Ne :::= :::::::: d' ' :'.::':'. .:.':;;: 00i00i!iii WS :::: :.':.'..': iiiiiiil ...,,... iiiii::::i One Lost Sheep At A Time iiiii:::::: ....%., !?i:i: :.:.:..' ::::::: ::!iiii:: :::::::: ./.... .:.:.:.

The Democratic Party chiefs, on the other hand, think Wallace's poor health will work against him. Roosevelt, our sources point out, had to deal only with radio. Wallace, they feel, will be unable to hide his helplessness from the television cameras. President Ford, meanwhile, is more worried about Wallace than any of his other opponents. White House sources say the President fears the Alabama Governor would attract thousands of blue-collar workers who would otherwise vote for the Ford ticket. Testing Detente: The crisis in Portugal could well become the first real test of detente between Russia and the United States. Portugal is virtually in a state of civil war. The military junta, in cahoots with the Portuguese Com- munist party, would like to establish a Communist state. The Portuguese people, on the other hand, are largely Catholic and conservative. In elections last April, only 125 per cent of the voters supported the Communists. In recent weeks, the supporters of democracy have burned Communist offices. All of this leaves Moscow in a quandary. The Por- tuguese Communist organization is the most pro-Soviet party in western Europe. The Kremlin, therefore, would like to see the Portuguese comrades take over Lisbon. However, the Soviets are pursuing a policy of relaxation with the West. They just signed a document in Helsinki which promised peaceful cooperation with the United States, Canada and western Europe. What, then, will the Soviets do in Portugal? American intelligence analysts believe the Kremlin has worked out a two-track policy. For the record, they are keeping hands off in Portugal. Stories leaked out of the Kremlin suggest the Russians have told the Por- tuguese Communists to cool their revolutionary ardor. But behind the scenes, the KGB and Cuban Com- munists are quietly working in Lisbon to help their Portuguese colleagues. Helping Hand: The Federal ElectionJ created in the wake of Watergate to campaign laws, has given the green light congressmen to amass large slush practices are formally forbidden. The commission recently sent proposed regulations that would open to secret little accounts some legislators for travel, newsletters, and the like. At the same time, the commission the lawmakers not to make any until the regulations become effective. To some congressmen, that is an open it while they can.

Without admitting who and what caused it, some politicians now concede Taylor that inflation is Public Enemy Number One.

Last year the pols and bureauleeches told us the in- flation rate was 5 per cent or 6 per cent and now it has on national and international affairs been revealed that the actual inflation rate is 14.4 per cent.

The nation's history is never tampered with in that lovely land. Its spirit of independence remains manifest today. Switzerland maintains the largest ready army in all Western Europe - 620,000 fully trained men, backed by 490 jets. You are also in nature's earliest known birdiand. Evolved from reptilian stock about 150 million years ago, the Archaeoptery, the earliest known bird, is plainly shown in Bavarian Jurassic lithographic limestone. The Alps are relatively new; much younger, for example than the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. And, like all mountains, they are always changing - old ones wearing down, flat lands rising to form new mountains. It's nature's use of pressure, water and ice as cutting tools to keep our earth in balance -- obediently, as if tapped by a wand. Important? Should our globe wobble off its axis at all, a 50-foot tidal wave from the oceans would engulf every continent. The lake dwellers of Lucerne, secure in their cliffs, were there in 5,000 B.C. - about the time Egypt's pyramids were being built and the Hanging Gardens were being landscaped in Babylon. And even before the year 1000 the monks of St. Gall started creating works of art. Europe's Dark Ages, lasting 700 years between the 5th and 12th centuries, found civilization preserved largely through monastery parchments. The University of Basel's vaults hold probably the world's greatt collection. They also hold the priceless papers of Erasmus of Rotterdam who lived in Basel's medieval labyrinth of twisting, narrow streets. Chaucer relied for his ]fie on the hospice established by Saint Bernard of Menthon when traveling across the Alpt the treatment of war prisoners and established the In- ternational Red Cross. Its motto is "I am with the wounded" and its emblem is Switzerland's flag in reverse. Then in 1919 Col. Edward M. House, representing President Woodrow Wilson, conferred in the "Alabama Room" with two British delegates for the founding of the League of Nations. A powerful assembly of high mountains and in- dependent-minded people is inextricably knotted in Switzerland; an inspiring harmony of good judgment, humaneness, valor and individual self-reliance. In- dependence Day pays its own honor to the nation and the Swiss.

But it may be news to a good many people that denim has become a high-fashion item to the extent that this year big-city stores are ad- vertising fall suits for both men and women, beautifully tailored, of good old indigo blue denim. On top of that, a new wave of the future has struck our smart young people who, without much fanfare, have turned totally around in their attitudes as to what kind of denims and pants, etc., they really want these days. If you are still thinking that teen-agers and college youths prefer ragged, torn, wrinkled and faded blue jeans, let me clue you in on an excellent study recently made by Gilbert Youth Research. The interviewers talked with 2,354 young people bet- ween the ages of 14 and 25. There were 1,123 females and 1,231 males in this cross-section of a probability sample. Some were high school students, some college students, and 538 of them were drop-outs, or had finished their education, etc. They were living in the Northeast part of the United States, and the North Central, the South, and the West. Both white and nonwhite representatives were involved. So it is fair to say the study showed a reasonably accurate picture of the whole country. The results may surprise you. When asked which they preferred, stiff and board-like denim cotton jeans, or jeans after they have been softened by several washings, 93.8 said they preferred them soft -- after washings. Then, they were asked, if you could get new jeans that felt soft as they do after several washings, would you be interested in being able to buy these? Yes, said 81.9 per cent, and only 11.8 per cent said they 6.2 per cent preferred the stiff fabriC. A similar question was put to them puckered jeans, and whether they left them wrinkled.
