Group seeks to limit
handgun possession

tonnued trio tre :i
CPC co-ordinator Ken Dill
says he is confident that the
common sense of most people
will prevail - barring an over-
whelming campaign by the gun
THYE MOST visible opponents
of the amendment include the
Michigan United Conservation
Clubs, the Sportsman Alliance
of Michigan and the Michigan
Rifle and Pistol Association.
Tom Washington, executive
director of the Conservation
Clubs, contends that "the pro-
posal would divert attention
from the root causes of homi-
cides, increase everyone's tax-
es and disarm the law-abiding."
Ile terms the proposal a
"monstrositv'' and claims that
"criminals will never torn over
thteir weapons'
INSTEAD of enforcing gon
control, he sogeests, "The gov-
ernment slnOwld recognize the
rest reasons for crime," which
are often poverty and nor
coicO, he says.
'We have a 200-ear heritage
of guns serving their cottntry
well, Wasthington explains.
"Gn have separated free men
from slaves.'
WashingtI compares the
gn control amendment to the
acts of Nazi Germany -- "a pri-
mary function of fascist states
is to disari the people," he
Washington also contends
that "once the government has
the pistols, they'll be going aft-
er our long guns next."

THE PROPOSED amendment
would ban possession of hand-
guns after a moratorium of one,
year following the effective date
of the legislation.r
The state would purchase the"
pistols at "fair market value"-
the going market price imme-
diately before enactment of the
law, Estimates of the cost of
the program vary from $30 mil-
lion to $100 million.
A pistol club would be exempt
from the law only if it were a
"bona fide target or sportshoot-
ing club with restricted prem-
ises," and if its handguns were
stored "in the facility of a local
law enforcement agency," AP Photo

He listed "four thoughts" for
Nixon to take home with bim
to Washington:
-Jordan is greatly satisfied
over "the new era of goodwill
that is opening up between te
United States andbthe Ar-i
-There will be "neither
peace nor security in the Mid-
dIe East" so long as Israel oc-
cupies territory captured in the
1967 war.
-The Palestinian queslion is
the "major issue in the cns-
flict between Israel and the
Arab world. There can be no
peace until the legitimate righ
of the Palestinian people arte
recognized and restored.' lie
said the Palestinians themoe l v
must decide, after their t(:
tory is liberated, if they wili e
op a federated state with C.it-
dan or an independent count
-The Islamic world
never allow the Arab cite 'I
JersisOem to remain under i
control of Israel. Arab so
reignty over the holy city i
be reinstated."

Sirica made no comment as
he pronounced senence.
KALMBACII admitted raising
$2.8 million for Republican Sen-
ate candidates in 1970 in some-
thing called "Operation Town-
house." The charge was that
the committee had collected and
disbursed the money had not
chosen a chairman and treas-
urer as required by law. It was
a violation of the Federal Cor-
rupt Practices Act and a felony
with a maximum penalty of
two years in prison and a $10,000
Kalmbach a 1 s o conceded

promising Fife Symington, then
ambassador to Tobago and
Trinidad, a better post for a
$100,000 c o n t r i b u ti o n. The
charge, a misdemeanor, carried
a maxium sentence of one year
in prison and a $1,000 fine.
Synington did not get the ad-
vancement and retired from the
diplomatic service.
Kaimbach's plea, last Feb 25.
was the result of bargaining
with the special Watergate
prosecutor's office.
IN RETURN, Kalmbach prom-
ised to testify as a government
witness in the various trials yet
to come.
Kalmbach had resigned from
the law firm of Kalmbach, De-
Marco, Knapp & Chillingworth
on the day he was charged and
pleaded guilty.
A FUND-RAISER for 20 years,
Kalmbach acted as trustee of

nearly $3 million left over from
Nixon's 1968 campaign.
After the Watergate break-in
two years ago, he was asked
by John Dean to raise money,
for the defendants and got to-
- getter $220,000 in a short time.
It was disbursed in what Kalm-
bach called "a James Bond
scenario" by undercover agent
Anthony Ulasewicz.

Next time you see
someone polluting,
It's a spewing smokestack. It's litter
In the streets. It's a river where fish
can't live.,
You know what pollution is.
But not everyone does.
So the next time you see pollution,
don't close your eyes to it.
Write a letter. Make a call. Point it
out to someone who cam do something
ab~out it.
People start pollution. People can stop it.
