Morton denies job,
politics will conflict

By The Associated Press
Rogers Morton defended his
new White House job Thursday
while President Ford's lawyer
went to the Federal Election
Commission to try to straighten
out a dispute over Morton's po-
litical chores.
Morton, outgoing secretary of
commerce, was named Tuesday
to a $44,600 counselor's job part-
ly including political duties. The
new election commission began
an investigation after its chair-
man, Thomas B. Curtis, said
the Whit'e House was "treading
on thin ice" in the arrange-
ment.
WHITE HOUSE counsel Phil-
ip Buchen asked for a meet-
ing with Curtis, which was
scheduled for late Thursday.
Morton, in Des Moines, Iowa,
said he will advise Ford "on a
great spectrum of issues" and
contended that "the President
is just as much entitled to po-
litical advice as he is to natural
resources advice."

Deputy White House Press Sec-
retary John Carlson said: "It{
is safe to say the President andE
his staff will totally and com-
pletely obey the letter and spirit
of the law just as they expect
any other candidate to do."
FROM THE FEC's standpoint,
the question involving Morton
is whetherhis performing cam-
paign duties while on the' public
payroll would constitute a form
of campaign contribution or
campaign expenditure which
would have to be reported un-
der strict new federal law.
There could be no violation
of a reporting requirement at
least until April 10, however,
the deadline for reports cover-
ing the first three months of
the year, according to a com-
mission official.
Federal statutes under juris-
diction of other agencies pro-
hibit political work by federal
employes.
BUT DRAWING the line be-
tween official and political work
has long been a difficult prob-
lem, often resulting in individ-
uals receiving part of their sal-
ary on a federal payroll and
part from a campaign treas-
ury.
Morton contended that a presi-
dent is "a product of the politi-
cal system. Can we sterilize
and isolate him from the sys-
tem and political parties after
he's elected?"
Former Sen. Fred Harris,
seeking the Democratic presi-
dential nomination, sent a com-
plaint on the Morton matter to
the FEC and said: "If an in-
cumbent president can use the
federal payroll to help finance
his campaign, the people are
still at a disadvantage in the
election of a president."

HEALING,
Restoring health, wholeness, harmony, justice.
In our culture,, healing of mind, body, spirit and community are most
often considered separately, for instance, through psychology, medi-
cine, religion, and politics. Are there principles, processes, images,
forms on which seemingly diverse kinds of healing are based?
Canterbury House invites you to a series of discussions this term on
"The Connections Among Physical, Psychological, Spiritual and Political
Healing."

Peron forces resignation of
moderate cabinet mi1nisters

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina
P) - President Isabel Peron
removed four moderate minis-
ters from her eight-man cab-

tied government a distinct right-
wing, party-oriented tone.

predicts,
quake in
Australia
ADALAIDE, Australia (AP)--
South Australian workers are
poised to desert their factories
md the state premier has ap-
pealed for calm following a part-
time clairvoyant's "mental
flash" that an earthquake andI
tidal wave will hit Adelaide on
Monday.
"It appears a degree of hys-
teria has been whipped up about
some nonsensical prophecy that
there will be an earthquake and
tidal wave on Monday," Premier
Don Dunstan said in a radio
broadcast sought by community
leaders who feared a down un-
der version of California's Ssan
Andreas fault scares.
"THERE IS NO BASIS for
it at all," Dunstan said, adding
that he will stand on a jetty at
Glenelg Beach near Adelaide on
Monday morning to show that he
has no fear of a tidal wave.
Adelaide seismologist D. J.
Sutton termed the prediction
"poppycock." Adelaide suffers
about 50 earth tre-mors every
year but most are too weak
for people to feel.
Maj. Gen. Alan Stretton, chief
of Australia's natural disaster
organization, also is unperturb-
ed. He plans to be in Adelaide
on Monday to address a Rotary
Club meeting.
BUT MANY RESIDENTS are
still planning to leave the state
capital of 800,000 or at least stay
at home with their families on
the supposed doomsday.
Dunstan predicted such high
absenteeism from work would
force many businesses to close.
Clairvoyant John Nash, a house
painted by trade, said Nov. 3
that the vision came to him
while he was gardening. He said
he saw in his mind's eye a
newspaper front page reporting
the disaster, complete with Mon-
day's date.
Nash has since fled 1,500 miles
to western Australia "to avoid
the disaster."
