Splits threaten HRP unity
(Continued from Page 1)
The splits within the party are t
not new ones. They have always
been present in some form or an-
other. But the well-defined caucus
lines now present have their oni-
gins in the party's nominating con-
vention last August.
The controversial questions then
were who to nominate as the par-
ty's state representative and coun-
ty sheriff candidates.
The main contenders for the state
representative nomination were
Eric Chester and Steve Burghart.
Chester, who had been out of town
for many of the previous months,
had the backing of what is now the
Burghart had the support of most
of the party's middle. When Burg-
hart was chosen, Chester declared
he could not support the nominee
because Burghart had not declared
his candidacy until just before the
nominating meeting. This caused
much bad feeling within the party.
The other disagreement occurred
when the convention decided not
to run a candidate for sheriff. The
two prime candidates withdrew
just before the convention and there
were no candidates acceptable to
The Rainbow Party was out-
raged. They disliked Democratic
candidate Fred Postill and wanted
very badly to run a candidate
against him. They charged that
"party regulars" discouraged the
two candidates who were consider-
ing running. The Rainbow Party

mese casualties stood at 100.
Twenty aircraft and many fuel
and ammunition dumps in the huge
air base were blown up.
U.S. and Saigon sources said five
jets last Monday dropped bombs
on Da Nang airfield by accident.
The jets were flying in cloudy
weather on a tactical bombing
mission in South Vietnam and were
unable to see their target when
the accident occurred, according
to U.S. reports of the incident.
A U.S. military spokesman call-
ed the Viet Cong reports of fight-
ing between South Vietnamese and
American soldiers at Da Nang air
base "a lot of bunk."
"We have no reports of any dis-
turbances," the spokesman said.

SAC denied a report that other
B52 crew members had been sent
back to the United States "quietly"
for balking at flying missions over
the heavily defended Hanoi area.
SAC said the report was contained
in a dispatch filed from Guam,
where many B52s are based, by a
New York Times correspondent..
"There is absolutely no truth to
that," a spokesman said.
SAC provided the information on
Heck in response to questions from
the Omaha World-Herald on wheth-
er members of B52 crews had dis-
obeyed orders to fly over the Hanoi
SAC said Heck flew 56 bombing
missions during his first B52 tour;
61 missions during his second tour,
and 39 missions on his current
tour. He also flew 106 missions as
a forward air controller.
Heck was residing at Whittier
City, Calif., when he was commis-
