"It is disquieting and embatassing that after all that has happened (in the Watergate Scandal) I cannot honestly tell you that I know what has happened or why,'' remarked Senator Howard H. Baker, Jr. (R-Tenn) last Monday night to a ¡ receptive audience of about 2000 people in the NIC gym. During his brief twenty minute speech Senator Baker alluded to the 'good ol' days', but questioned whether or not they were better in 1973. " There were the good old days, but we were fighting for our survival," he said about our nation's first few years of history. He continued by reminding the audience that it was not until the 1960's and 70's that civil liberties, guaranteed to everyone more than one hundred years ago, were finally being realized. But in 1973 " America did something no other country would have had the nerve to do," stated Baker, by opening up the Watergate affair and bringing it all into the public's view. He stated that there were upwards of seventy million viewers daily . watching the proceediegs, and that the hearings were ''the most participatory event in the history of our nation." According to the Senator it was because of this national participation and concern that none need fear our country's demise. He added that any country that has the ability to survive a scandal like Watergate has the ability to survive anything. He concluded that we can all realize a "vibrant future" for our country", and there is " no doubt that the function of government will continue and its structure endure."

Violence in Politics Heads McClure Speech By C. '1 icha.-l An11tint'

Idaho Republican Senator James McClure spoke to a Popcorn Forum audience last Tuesday on " The Role of Violence in Politics" as a prelude to the North Idaho Convocation Committee's " Week of Violence" scheduled for March 18-22. Keynoting the address was McClure's statement on the impact of violence on a society as a whole. " If we had a choice between anarchy and an authoritarian government," he said, "I believe we would choose the authoritarian because it is less destructive of our individual freedom and liberties.'' Ch o ict> 8t'h•een Two

"But, I don't want to have to make that choice. Yet our political system 1s gradually forcing us into a decision between the two," McClure noted. "Violence is a poar way of deciding an argument," he remarked, "but it has become very important in determining the outcome of many of today's political decisions because of it's past success." According to McClure the same expression of violence on the college campus in the 60's has been carried over into today.

" In our society the best way to solve a problem is by a dialogue and discussion and then a vote.

Unofficial GOP Day Keeps Politicos Busy By Jim Macknlckl Press Staff Writer Though not proclaimed officially , Friday was Republican day in Coeur d'Alene with candidates and voters turning out en masse to a variety of functions throughout the day. Wayne Kidwell, GOP candidate for attorney general, started off the day's activities with a 7:30 breakfast meeting at the Iron Horse Restaurant while other candidates and elected officials spoke at other morning events. Even the wives of the candidates were busy, staging a lunch-time style show at the Sourdough Restaurant east of the city. There was standing room only at the North Idaho College Popcorn Forum lecture series which featured the Idaho Republican candidates for state and federal offices in the November election. Students and non-students alike crowded int-0 the NIC Edminster Student Union building to hear Kidwell ; 1st District Congressman Steve Symms, who is seeking re-election ; Lt. Gov. Jack Murphy, GOP candidate for governor ; and Bob Smith, candidate for the U. S. Senate. _Speaking first at the Popcorn Forum, Kidwell said the United States is almost becoming a nation run by regulations and if he were elected he would work to reverse the trend to insure the state's individuality. Murphy, too, said be was concerned about federal encroachment in the State of Idaho and charged that the national government Is attempting to gain control of the Middle Snake River. "Idaho's contribution to the scenic river area is almost half that of the nation's total," Murphy said. He added that if proponents of the proposed recreation area on the Middle Snake have their way, Idaho's contribution to the nation's scenic river areas will be 90 per cent of the national total. "This is nothing more than an attempt to make a scenic river out of a working river," Murphy said. U. S. Senate hopeful Bob Smith said

regardless of a person's political philosophy all individuals want a nation where men are free, where they can live in a clean environment and where it is possible for a person to work bis way out of a ghetto. "The problem comes," Smith said, "when you ask the question how do you accomplish that goal." Smith said early in the country's history a form of socialism was tried but people did not have enough to eat or enough warm clothes to wear and it was only when free enterprise took over that people were well clothed and fed. "Which is the most humanitarian approach," Smith asked. "The one that sounds good and doesn't work or the one that works?" Smith said the country was founded on the rights of the individual and because of that freedom the United States was able to advance. Smith said if current government regulations existed years ago men like the Wright brothers would have been investigated by a senate committee. " If we destroy our freedoms we will go back to the middle ages and believe me we are on our way," Smith said. Congressman Steve Symms, speaking last, told the audience that money today is less valuable because of the irresponsible spenders in Washington. " It now takes '55,000 a minute to service the interest on the national debt and 45 cents out of every dollar you earn is paid

back to the government in taxes," Symms said. Symms said while Congress promises the nation great programs it does not have the guts to raise taxes to pay for them with the result being inflation. In a question-and-answer period, which was cut short by TV interviews of the candidates, Murphy said be was not sure he could live with the results of a referendum on the Snake River. With an already busy day behind them, the candidates met once more at Little John Priscell's Friday evening for a Republican spaghetti feed, which was open to the public. An estimated 150 people attended the event, shaking the candidates' hands and asking questions. While the mood for the event was optimistic, a number of candidates addressed the problem of voter apathy, noting the poor Republican turnout in the primary election. "We have a problem with apathy and we must get the Republicans out to vote, and if we can accomplish that we will win in November," Symms said. In an interview following the spaghetti feed , Symms said he bas agreed to debate Ray Cox, his Democratic opponent, in Coeur d'Alene and Caldwell but dates for the debates has not been set. Symms said that all too often officials get elected in just a popularity contest and by debating, candidates can bring the issues to the voters.

Idahoans Attack Federal Controls By ROBERT HARPER Sll0llefflla11-11evitw Staff Writer

COEUR d'ALENE, Idaho, Further il'ederal control over Idaho land and water drew fire Friday from two state GOP candidates at a North Idaho College Popcorn Forum. Rep. Steve Symms, R·Tdaho, and Robert Smith. Caldwell. GOP U.S. Senate candidate, also spoke at the forum which was attended b~· about 150 persons. . Lt. Gov. Jack l\lurphy, Republican gubernatorial candidate, attacked what he ter med the permissiveness or the state's Democratic admini:st ralion toward "allowing the federal domination of Idaho land and water." He patikularly criticized propcsals for a Wild and Scenic River designation for the i\riddle Snake River. " When you start locking up the Middle Snake, you invite a gradual Cederal takeover of that working river," said Mur· phy, who was lieutenant governor for eight years. He contended that the feelerthe entire Snake River wal· f'rshed if the Middle Snake were made into a wild river recreational area. F'ederal edict then could transfer water !rom the basin lo other areas regardless oC tfle impact on Idaho water users and hydroelectric 1·e· quiremenls, he sald.

Mentalist To Appear At College The second NIC Popcorn Forum of this academic year will feature Jim Richardson from Washington, D.C., at 11 a.m. Monday. Richardson is known as _a mentalist who mystifies his audience in performance after performance throughout the United states. He has a degree in psycholo~y f~om The American Umvers1ty and a masters degree from George Washington University. He ~s also done postgraduate work m experimental psrcho~ogy at The American Umvers1ty_. Performing for hours "'.1thout repeating a test or experiment, Richardson works equally well with both large and sma_ll groups. He refuses to en~age m longwinded lectures but ,~stead provides one audience demonstration after another for more than an hour. The Amazing Richa~dson tells members of the audience what they had for breakfast, their unspoken thoughts, nam~s of their relatives and even the_ir d r eams. In one of h ~s experiments, while h~ is prevented from se~1ng, members of the aud1enre collect and mix rings, keys, photographs. and oth~r personal items. Upon feeling . the article Richardson d.escri~es the owner and returns it lo him without asking a single ques· lion. He also does .such demonstrations as runmng a needle through his hand. The Popcorn Forum lecture series is presented al lhe ~dminsler Student Union Bu1ldmg on· the North Idah? _College campus. The public is mv1led.

The Druids, an order of priests in ancient Gaul and Britain, believed that on Halloween , ghosts, spirits, fairies, witches and elves came out to harm people . From these Druidic beliefs comes the present use of witches, ghosts and cats at Halloween . T·hese beliefs are reputed for their connection with the occult and witchcraft or black magic. These factors have nothing to do with psychic phenomena and ESP ( extra sensory perception). We recently had a Popcorn Forum at which guest Jim Richardson spoke on by Dee Anne M c Carley the subject of psychic experiences . • Jim was born and r aised in Washington D. C . , where he had access to the Library of Congress, and therefore had the opportunity to read quite a few old and rare books on magic and witc hcraft. His first field of intere.st was visual perception; he was interested in illusions, "Illusions can tell you a lot about how we perceive". He later became interested in mental magi cians, ma gicians and the oc c ult , "and it all just fit together". The event which got him started in psychic research was the appearance of an apparition when he was 1 6 years o l d. "People think that you are crazy when you say that yo u have seen

something o u t of the ordinary". His tricks: "Mostly showmanship". He can tell about someone through an object by "perception thru appearance" . It is the same principle as tarot cards , dice or astrology the items give the person something to focus on . I asked Jim if he really does have an unusual men tal ability. To this he replied, "The only time I do it (mental telepathy) is when we are getting together for this purpose. I don 1 t do traditional meditation • •• once the show is over, that's it, I just turn it right off. I mean, you can't turn it on and off like a lightbulb though". He does have to mentally prepare himself for each performanc e. As for reading people's minds he feels it is an invasion of privacy, not unlike reading someone's mail. He doesn 1 t even wish to know his own future, much less someone else's. In conclus i on, he said that there are some people who can actually read minds anytime they want to, but if they u se this " power" for personal gain they will never be able to use it again. You see •• • there is something that prevents them from doing this .

Democrats applaud p arty's progress Democratic candidates for both National and state officers today applauded the progress made by themselves and the party in recent years. The candidates, Gov. Cecil Andrus, U.S. Sen. Frank Church, Atty. Gen. Tony Park and Coeur d'Alene attorney J. Ray Cox appeared together at North Idaho College for the fourth Popcorn Forum Prgram this year. Inrlation was the key issue discussed by the candidates with Sen. Church saying that the present national administration's policy of high interest rates is not working. Church spoke for the Democratic party by saying, " Democrats have and are opposed to high interest rates" which ultimately arrect such things as the housing market

and the woods of Idaho. The candidates all refered to the party's support for the Sunshine Initiative with Park ¡saying that he feels the initiative is the "watershed issue for ldhao'' this year. Park, in answering a question on the issue, said the party is united behind the intiative and that the people are going to have to get out and support the issue as it takes a majority of the aggrigate voles cast for the governor for the Initiative to pass. Sen. Church lauded the leadership in ldhao. saying. " I wish that we could have enjoyed the quality of leadership on the national level that we have had in ldhao," and urged Idaho voters to continue with the strong leadership provided by the Democratic party both in Idaho and on the national level.

Shoot Bigfoot if you see it By Diana Huber Press Staff Writer Is it legal to shoot a sasquatch7

Dr. Grover Krantz, associate professor of anthropology at Washington State Unive~lty, not only assured his audience Thursday that It was, but encouraged anyone to shoot one to verily their existence. "Right now, shooting a sasquatch, or Bigfoot, Is as legal as shooting a unicorn, since the existence of the creature bas never been documented, Dr. Krantz said. "Just be sure you don't shoot a guy in a fur suit." Krantz, who Is rapidly becoming one of the world's foremost experts on "Bigfoot" spoke yesterday at a popcorn forum at Nor th Idaho College before a capacity audience, telling the students what ls known to date about the existence of the Bigfoot and urging them ¡to contact him with any information they might have on the creature. Krantz said that he was quite skeptical about the existence of Bigfoot until be studied footprints and plaster casts of footprints purportedly made by the creatures. "The front part of the foot ls relatively short when compared to a human foot, Indicating that the ankle Is farther forward, right where It would have to be to sQpport a creature some eight feet tall and weighing about 800 pounds," Krantz said. He said anyone faking the foot¡ prints would have to be both an expert on anatomy and an exceptional engineer and would have bad to travel hundreds of miles laying thousands of footprints since they are always in remote places. " And for every set found, hundreds must go undiscovered," he said. Another reason Krantz feels It would have been difficult for anyone to have faked all of the prints is that the earliest documented ones date back to the 1930s and it would be hard for any one person to remaln that active that long. Other theories Krantz said be has discounted include one In which a rge group of pranksters sworn to crecy willi the expert anatomiatengineer as their leader use a Imp machine someone bad invented to make the tracks.

Krantz feels that if it were a group of pranksters, someone would have let the secret out by now. A machine would leave uniform tracks and the tracks that have been found are far from unUonn, be said. Krantz went into detail about the most recent sighting of Bigfoottracks in the southwest corner of Washington, saying that be bad been called into the area and estimated the number of tracks at 200. He said be had studied 40 to 50 of the tracks which were intact and that they appeared to be authentic. "The tracks bad about three times the surface area of a human footprint, meaning that they should leave an impression about one-third as deep as a man's print if made by a man." I walked beside these prints and in places they were deeper than mine, indicating that the creature that made them was about three times my weight, or some 800 to 800 pounds," Krantz said. The distance between the tracks, according to Krantz, was Uve feet rrom heel to heel even on a down bill slope, indicating that the creature was about eight feet tall. During bis discussion at the college, Krantz showed plaster casts of two different Bigfoot prints and a plaster cast of a hand, which he said oolonged to a Bigfoot. In explaining why no skeletal remains of a Bigfoot bad ever been found, Krantz said be had talked to many big-game bunters and bunting guides and asked if they had ever seen a skeleton from a cougar or bear that had died a natural death. None ever had. Krantz concluded that since bean and poaibly even cougars are more numerous than the Bigfoot, chances of flncting a skeleton were extremely poor. In estimating the population of sasquatches, Krantz noted that there had to be at least 200 individuals, male, female, and immature to malntaln a breeding population. On sightings, be said that there were some 600 which bad reached the newspapers, meaning that several thousand must have gone unreported or unbelieved. If this estimate of sightings waa anywhere near correct, it means that more persons have seen Sasquatcbes than have actually seen grizzly bean.

Candidates¡, Popcorn mix at NIC Land-use planning, state-supported kindergartens and the welfare system occupied the lion's share of the time at Monday's Popcorn Forum, which featured Republican and Democratic candidates seeking posts in Legislative Districts Two and Three. The candidates vying for the six legislative seats answered questions posed by members of the audience for the sixth North Idaho College Popcorn Forum of the year. On the program were Ivan Hanson, Republican. and Art Manley, Democrat, running for the senate seat in District 2; Democrats Dr. Frances Heard and Roy Bodine and Republicans Gary Ingram and C. W. Neider. seeking the two house seats from District 2. District 3 ca.ndidates are Cy Chase. Democrat, running unopposed for the Senate seat, and Emery Hedlund and John Cooper. Democrats, and Dolly Hartman, Republican, who are vying for the two House seats. Bud Lewis. also seeking a House seat in District 3, was unable to attend. The questions poseg by the audience centered around three major issues : land-use planning, state-supported kindergartens and the welfare system.

Senate incumbent Hanson suggested that land-use planning should remain in the bands of the local government and maintained that public education should be upgraded before supporting kindergarten. On the issue of welfare. Hanson said cutting stale spending was the means or reducing taxes and thus helping the lower-income groups. Manley suggested that state land-use planning is needed to insure all counties in the state will have it. but he claimed "community controi'was important" in dealing with the problem. On kindergartens, Manley supported the program on the same level that the state supports public schools. Manley explained the welfare problems as being primarily centered in the federal program and said that state assistance is needed to help solve the problems of Idaho's program. Mrs. Heard strongly supported state fur.ding of kindergarten and gave unequivocal support for state land-use planning," so we can keep Idaho unspoiled. " On the issue of welfare she claimed tha t the Idaho legislature "can't provide state solutions to a federal problem" and that the problem is centered in the agency itself. Bodine favored welfare aid to people who need help and the control of spending to help

on the tax burden for the poor. With regard to education, he said kindergarten funding is the most critical problem and that vocational 'education was of primary importance. Re also claimed that local control with state assistance was necessary for effective landuse planning. Ingram .felt that the inadequacies in funding of public schools needed to be rectified before supporting a kindergarten program. His position on welfare was that government interference through such things as high interest rates are hurting the people and that the free enterprise system would help if the government' would give il a chance. He also maintained that land-use planning required local control to be at all effective. Neider responded to the kindergarten issue by saying that under the Idaho Constitution, public support of kindergartens would be unconstitutional because it limits state aid to education to the age groups of 6 to 18. On land-use planning, Neider felt the local constituency should handle their own planning because of the differ e nces in t he geographical and industrial makeup of the state. Welfare, Neider said, was to help the disabled and others needing it and not those

<1ble to work. Chase said welfare was to help those who need it and maintained support for the state kindergartens. Land-use planning, Chase said, was important on the local level with state aid when necessary. Hedlund agreed that state-supported kindergartens were needed and that the welfare system should be taking care of those who need the program. Hedlund, who has been a member of the land-use committee, maintained that the state needs to "start thinking of the future'' to protect the millions of acres that are being destroyed each year. Land-use planning is one means of protecting that land, he said. Cooper supported land-use planning and voiced support for kindergarten with the stipulation of available funding. He also maintained that the welfare system in Idaho is a good one and benefits could be increased as long as the state stays within the budget. Mrs. Hartman was opposed to public support for kindergarten at the present time and advocated total local control over local land. With regard to welfare, Mrs. Hartman said tax cuts are needed and stimulation of business is needed to put the people to work and get them off welfare.

Rees censures sex laws " You can be imprisoned in Idaho if you perform sex using any other method than the ' missionary position'," stated Dr. Willis Rees at a recent NIC •Popcorn Forum. Rees elaborated, " Laws like this one must have been thought up by old men and spinsters from 90 or something.'' The Ass ista nt Professor of Psychology from The University of Idaho spoke on the topic of " Human Sexuality" to a full house at the forum and received rounds of applause from the receptive audience for his comments. Dr. Rees based his theory upon eight values (bricks) which be feels are most important to a full, rewarding sexual relationship. These values are: liberal sex education; love and compassion; honestv :

·freedom, jus tice and fair play ; responsibility; confidentiality; communication and patience ; and tenderness. Each value was reinforced by Rees, who commented, " reproduction is essential to the perpetuation of life ; love and compassion, coupled with natural sex, is the most rewarding experience in life.'' Dr. Rees also indicated that much sentimentality is involved on the subject of sex education in public schools. As he stated, " I spoke on the subject in Lewiston awhile back and some people got up a petition to bar me from the city."
