Host with most was too much

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. /P) - A
Democratic National Conven-
tion official resigned yesterday
following charges by a young
woman that he made improper
advances while interviewing her
for a job as a convention hos-
tess.
"He was asking about my bra
size and that's wh-n the con-
versation was getting to be a
little too much," Bonnie Seck-
inger, a 20-year-old department
store employe, said in an inter-
view with Miami television sta-
tion WTVJ.
The complaint was lodged
against Ted Cohen, 48, cochair-
man of the Hospitality and Hos-
tess Committee for the July
10-14 conclave at Miami Beach.
Cohen denied making such
advances, calling it a "political
conspiracy" against him and

accusing Secklinger of being a
publicity seeker.
WTVJ reporter Joan Hall said
the original televised report
Thursday night was followed by
calls from at least 20 parents
who said their daughters had
similar complaints.
Florida Democratic Chairman
Jon Moyle and an aide to Gov.
Reubin Askew said they also
had received complaints, and
had been investigating them.
Askew accepted the resigna-
tion and appointed Cohen's for-
mer cochairman, Ann Cramer,
to serve as chairman of the
committee.
Seckinger, in an interview
with Hall. said Cohen spoke'
with her for 15 minutes and
then asked her to accompany
him to his home because office

air conditioning was turned off.
"I thought he'd be living in
a house with a wife and kids,"
she said, "but it didn't turn out
that way."
She said Cohen, who is di-
vorced, took her to his apart-
ment, turned on a stereo and
offered a drink. Seckinger said
Cohen continually talked of
modeling instead of the hostess
job.
Cohen's resignation to Askew
said there was "no basis for
these charges. I have conducted
myself properly and am proud
of over 200 women that, along
with my cochairman, have al-
ready been selected to serve as
hostesses during the conven-
tion."
In /an earlier interview, Co-
hen said Seckinger "wants pub-
licity and she's getting it. She
was very forward in wanting to
get ahead."
Cohen, a Miami Beach pub-
licity agent, said he only offer-
ed Seckinger a soft drink at
his apartment.

Security force readied
for Dems convention

-Associated Press
WHO KNOWS' what will happen when these empty chairs at
Miami's convention center fill with delegates to the Democratic
and Republican National Conventions?

(Continued from Page 3)
erance's police officers have
been given special training in
crowd control and mob psy-
chology.
The Miami Beach City Coun-
cil has so far refused to make a
decision on a campsite for non-
delegates during the conven-
tions.
Orientation set to
begin tomorrow
(Continued from Page 3)
The purpose of orientation is
to "acousint freshmen with the
lost in the fall, get students pre-
campus, so that they are not so
classified, and meet other fresh-
men," according to Pobereskin.
The groups, composed of over
125 students, arrive for the pro-
gram every Sunday, Monday,
Tuesday and W e d n e s d a y
through August.
The orientation leaders work
in teams of four, so each leader
works with approximately 30
people.

This has prompted Askew's
Community Coordinating Task
Force, appointed to serve as a
liaison unit with local commun-
ities, to warn that immediate
action must be taken on camp-
sites and other facilities.
"These people nondelegates
have acted in good faith and
have made an effort to make
preparations for their own peo-
ple and there is no reason why
they should continue to be put
off," said Chairman Ernest
Seiler.
The Youth International Par-
ty Yippies this week said it
would not stage violent con-
frontationsduring the Demo-
ciatic convention.
But spokesman Jeff Night-
byrd said yesterday the Yippies
still planned "a cultural and ar-
tistic expression of new life
possibilities" during the Demo-
crats meetings and predicted
50,000 would flock to Miami
Beach to join the group, and
100.000 during the Republican
ConventXn.
