He told a crowd that lined the levee in tiny Lutcher, La., about 35 miles upstream from New Orleans, that he's conceding nothing, “from the snowy banks of Minnesota to the sandy plains of Georgia.” That covered the home states of both Carter and Democratic vice presidential nominee Walter F. Mondale. Ford called Mondale "the biggest spender in the Senate." TAX CUT Then, with a rasp from it’s hoarse horn, the rlverboat Nat chez embarked on the President’s excursion into Carter’s native Southland. Along the way, the President promised flatly that if he is elected he will ask for another tax reduction next January. He also pledged to curb fed eral spending and, in terms of national defense, "keep America No. I, period." Amid the political celebre tion, a man collapsed of a heart attack in the boat’s dining room. Dr. William Lukash. Ford’s physician, revived him, and he was taken on a stretch cr aboard a Coast Guard boat that pulled alongside the Natchez. The man was Identified as Percy Green, publisher of the Jackson Advocate, a weekly newspaper in Jackson, Miss. Lukash said Green had suffered cardiac arrest but was responding to treatment. "He’s apparently responding nicely,” Lukash said. While Green was being taken from the Natchez, Ford was on the upper deck, touring the riv-erboat with its captain, Clark (Doc) Hawley. With Mrs. Ford at his side, Ford covered the boat from the boiler room to the pilot's wheelhouse. He shook hands with the invited passengers, and many of them offered congratulations on bis showing in Thursday (CONTINUED ON PAGE TWO) Carter Making Theme Change ■■ ■■ ■■ An Unfortunate Occurrence With all his receiver* covered, Ron Caloagni, University of Arkansas quarterback, is stopped from turning a loss into a gain Saturday by 6 foot 6 Giles Alexander, a 258 pound Tulsa tackle, Calrag-ni’s knee hits the turf and Alexander downs him.

(AP) — The United Nations is holding elections this year too. and it looks as lf Kurt Waldheim will win another five years as secretary-general. But the tall, hard-working Austrian hasn’t been out pumping hands, debating opponents or making promises. In fact, he hasn’t even announced his candidacy. Like other diplomatic maneuverings at the United Nations, campaigning for office is done largely in hushed tones. The selection of the secretary-general rests with the five veto wielding permanent members of the Security Council — the United States, the Soviet Union, Britain, France and China. The process of achieving approval from such a politically volatile group is so sensitive that no incumbent would dare announce his candidacy until he had the backing of all five. GO-AHEAD ■ Four powers are said to have WASHINGTON (AP) - The congressional Joint Economic Committee says another tax cut may be in order next year to pump up the economy. While Republicans and Democrats on the panel agreed, in a mid-year economic report issued Saturday, that further tax reduction may be needed, they disagreed sharply on the role that federal spending should play In economic recovery. The Democrats, headed by Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey, chairman of the committee, said that holding spending at current levels would restrict economic growth. But the Republicans, echoing President Ford, said spending above current levels ‘‘would be destructive of the private sector’s ability to continue creating new jobs at the high rate experienced in the past year.” The Democratic proposals on taxes were not specific, and mentioned a further tax cut only as one possible course of action next year.
