AMA unit
aids GOP
campaigns
WASHINGTON (A} - A poli-
tical arm for the American
Medical Association p o u r e d,
nearly $700,000 into the 1970
campaigns without t e 11 i n g
Congress or the public which
candidates got the money.
'Our board has a policy that we
do not reveal the individual can-
- didate to whom we give the mon-
ey," said the head of the Amer-
ican Medical Political Action Com-
mittee.
The Corrupt Practices Act re-
quires such national political
groups to itemize donations and
spending for Congress.
But the doctors avoided naming
the candidates by giving the mon-
ey to various state affiliates of
AMPAC - which in turn passedI
the funds out to candidates.
The AMA is one of the richest
special interest groups bankroll-
ing campaigns.
It gave more money to candi-
dates - $693,412 ,- in the past
yearthan any other reporting in-
terest group except labor's Com-
mittee on Political Education andI
the 1970 Campaign Fund, a lib-
eral peace fund. Each of those ap-
proached $1 million in spending.
Among all the major political
groups' reports on file with Con-
gress, only the medical fund fails
to list candidates who received the
money.
However, the doctors' biggest
donations went to Republicans
running for the House andASenate.
The Indiana unit of AMPAC,
for example, filed a voluntary
report with Congress showing a
$10,000 contribution for the GOP
Senate nominee in that state,
Richard Roudebush, and other
large donations.to 11 House candi-
dates - 10 of them Republicans.

news briefs
By The Associated Press
A U.S. PROSECUTOR at the Nuremburg trials said Friday
that Gen. William Westmoreland "could be found guilty" as a
war criminal by World War II standards.
Telford Taylor, author of a book suggesting that U.S. Vietnam
I policy be examined by Nuremburg criteria, spoke on the Dick Cavett
Show.
Taylor. a law professor at Columbia University and retired brig-
adier general in the Army Reserve, referred specifically to standards
set by the U.S. Army commission that convicted and hanged Gen.
Tomayuki Yamashita, Japanese commander in the Philippines, for
atrocities committed by his troops.
JOHN HANNAH, U.S. foreign aid chief, yesterday announced
plans whereby economic development aid would be separate from
arms aid.
Hannah also indicated that the Nixon adiinistration plans a
new long-range commitment for large-scale help to poor countries.
Under the Nixon blueprint, economic development assistance now
handled by Hannah's Agency for International Development would
be assigned to new institutions.
Arms and economic aid have been lumped together in annual
aid legislation in the years since World War II.
In the marathon congressional session just ended, the legislators
wound up voting for $2.4 billion for overseas assistance of which half
was for arms and for defense-connected economic help.
RIO POLICE yesterday assembled 70 political prisoners to
ransom kidnaped Swiss Ambassador Giovanni Bucher.
Intense activity took place at Rio's Galeao Airport as authorities
questioned a terrorist arrested after an abortive bank robbery and
believed to have participated in Bucher's kidnaping.
Authorities hoped the questioning could lead to Bucher's kid-
napers, who have held him for 33 days.
Algeria was held the most likely destination for the prisoners.

of Middle East peace proposals to U.N. special envoy Gunnar Jar-
ring.

No details of the plans were announced, but Israel is known to
want "secured and agreed borders" with its Arab neighbors, and "a
signed treaty to end 22 years of conflict."
Jarring has agreed to submit the proposals to the Arabs attend-
