Senate 'denounces'

the charges against Talmadge, the
veteran senator sat quietly, hand on
chin, near the rear of the Senate chain
ber with his lawyer at his side.
After detailing the charges of finan-
cial misconduct against the senator,
Stevenson urged the Senate to "charac-
terize his conduct as reprehensible and
'denounce that conduct ..."
- 'A deep silence fell over the chamber
gas the senators cast their votes.
'Talmadge voted "present" - as did
llow Georgian Sam Nunn and Sens.
Walter Huddleston (D-Ky. ), and
G'eorge McGovern (D-S:D.). Voting
present indicates a senator was on hand
for a recorded vote but chose not to cast
"' IMMEDIATELY after the vote by his
c~olleagues, Talmadge arose in his chair
1$' declare his innocence. "I have never
-fkowingly violated the laws of this
nation or the rules of the Senate," he
'aid.
'But Talmadge also said he had made
Mistakes of negligence and that he
t egretted them. However, he added
that the Ethics Committee had found
ithing to indicate his, actions were
,willful. Talmadge said he had "nothing
t6 fear" from a parallel investigation
by the Justice Department.
"I accept the committee's criticism.
because I believe that senators should"
be held to much higher standards than
,Is commonplace;' Talmadge said. "In
the past, I have leveled heavy criticism

at others. I also know how to take it."
IT IS POSSIBLE that Talmadge
could face further discipline from
Democratic members of the Senate,,
who could strip him of seniority and of
his post as. chairman of the Agriculture
Committee and as second ranking
Democrat on the Finance Committee.
However, such action appeared
unlikely.
Sen. Harrison Schmitt (R-N.M.), the
senior Republican on the ethics panel,
said that based on historical precedents
and constitutional principals, he
believed Talmadge should be censured,
not denoun'ced.
"THE APPROPRIATE disciplinary
action was censure," Schmitt said.
But he said he. wouldl not seek to
change the unanimous vote of the
committee, which decided Talmadge
should be "denounced," - a penalty
considered by many to be less severe
than censure.
In the first hour of debate, there were
no speeches in Talmadge's defense. But
Sens. John Stennis (D-Miss. ), a long-
time friend, and Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-
Hawaii), asked Stevenson a series of
questions focusing on the importance of
testimony by Daniel Minchew,
Talmadge's former administrative

aide and chief accuser

DETROIT (UPI)-Vice President
Walter Mondale brought President Car-
ter's as yet unannounced re-election bid
to Detroit yesterday, defending Carter
as having "one of the best records in
American history."
Mondale addressed a $500-a-plate
fundraising luncheon held by a newly
formed Carter-Mondale re-election
steering committee that includes such
staunch Carter backers as Mayor
Coleman Young.
YOUNG WAS noticeably absent from
"the event but Mondale noted he had "a
valid excuse" because he was stumping
"tbr Carter in Florida in advance of
Weekend Democratic party caucuses.
The vice president said Carter
repeatedly has shown a willingness to
'tke on difficult domestic and. foreign
'i9sues and has a solid record of results
' 61i jobs, education, civil rights and en-
cburaging business.
' Mondale also said the Carter Ad-
"ministration "has the momentum with
d§ again" in 'the battle for Senate ap-
' proval of the SALT treaty.
Congressional debate on the SALT
pact has shown it is "good . for
iAmerica," Mondale said' adding the
'administration found it "unacceptable"
6to hold up SALT ratification because of
-ihe presence of Soviet troops in Cuba.
. "The treaty is in our nation's interest,
Att is verifiable, makes us stronger with
it. than without it and improves the
c&hances that wie will never have a
nclear war," the vice president said.
