Eagleton withdraws from ticket

dialogue of this country since

"I had hoped," he continued,
"this election could be decided

McGovern said he would try
to choose a new running mate
as quickly as possible but add-
ed he and his aides would be
"very cautious and very care-
ful" in checking the background
of the new choice.
That choice requires approv-
al of the party's national com-
mittee, which is expected to
follow his recommendation as
the national convention did in
picking Eagleton.
The most frequently men-
tioned names for possible suc-
cessors have b e e n former

tee Chairman Lawrence
O'Brien, Sens. Gaylord Nelson
of Wisconsin, Frank Church of
Idaho and Edmund Muskie of
Maine, and Mayor Kevin White
of Boston.
O'Brien, now national cam-
paign chairman for McGovern,
was notified of the Eagleton
step-down about an hour before
the news conference announce-
ment, but an aide said he was
not consulted.
Both McGovern and Eagle-
ton were interrupted frequent-
ly during their brief statements
by members of both men's
staffs and bystanders In the
Caucus Room in the Old Senate
Office Building where many
important announcements, in-
cluding presidential candida-
cies, have been made over the
The conference between Mc-
Govern and Eagleton was the
first direct meeting of the two
since Eagleton's revelation of

his medical history.
The faces of Eagleton's senate
staff members telegraphed the
decision even, before it was an-
nounced. They stood grim and
unsmiling in the marble-walled
room where many other candi-
dates, John and Robert Ken-
nedy among them, had begun
presidential campaigns.
McGovern, tanned, wearing a
dark blue suit, smiled as he
strode into the room. IHagleton
tried to match the smile but
failed. His mouth was pinched,
his body tense.
Beads of perspiration appear-
ed on Eagleton's forehead as he
stood beside McGovern. By the
time the press conference had
ended under the hot television
lights, small rivulets of perspira-
tion were running down his
cheeks and neck.
Eagleton went into the session
saying he would give McGovern
statistics showing mail and tele-

remedy to the Vietnam problem.
Shapiro not only is asking a
cut off of funds but is in favor
of anything that will end the
war. "I will do anything I car.
in Congress to end the Vietnam
War-including supporting the
impeachment of Richard Nixon."
Although the only feature of
abortion reform which is con-
nected with national politics is
national health insurance, all of
the candidates are asked to ex-
press their views on it at one
time or another.
Stempien has argued that
abortion should not be legal-
ized on the grounds that legis-
lators are required to protect the
rights of the unborn. He says,
"Our constitution does provide
legal constitutional rights for
unborn children. From the mo-
ment of conception it has a.
separate life of its own."

When asked -why Rorer's ex-

the addictive potential of Qua-
alude, McCallister explained

Turner has stated that he
supports abortion "to a limited
degree." Turner says that if a
married woman is having an
abortion and is living with her
husband, then the husband

Schwall, like Stempien, also
opposes abortion reform while
Shapiro is much in favor of
reform, calling for legalization
and coverage under national
health insurance.
Marijuana is the source of
numerous questions posed to the
candidates and the answers
cover all the possibilities.
Shapiro wants legalization of
marijuana and all drugs. Turner
does not want legalization of
marijuana, but rather, reduced
penalties for use. His reasoning
is that not enough is known
about the drug. He says, "I
think you should have enough
facts to make a good judgment."

Quaalude will be included in. ,
Reclassification of Quaalude
as a controlled substance would
make it illegal without a pre-
scription, and would provide for
a penalty of from one to five
years in prison.
The new act would also re-
quire drug companies to keep
accurate records of the amount
manufactured and who it was
sold to, in order to cut down on
diversion of the drug into illegal
McCallister claims, however,
that his company already exer-

"I feel very good," he said as
he strode into the meeting. "I
felt very good all day."
Eagleton said he felt the con-
troversy would have blown over
if given enough time. McGovern
apparently disagreed.
"It was my subjective political
judgement that in another two
or three weeks . . . that pretty
soon the issue would run out of
gas," Eagleton said.
After the announcement Eagle-
ton said he would continue in
public life despite the furor
which had dogged him for the
past week.
"My conscience is clear and
my spirits are high," Eagleton
said. "This is definitely not my
last press conference and Tom
Eagleton is going to be around
for a long, long time."
