In fact, they always put out plenty ol seeds to keep their friends well fed. But all those big meals began making it pretty rough on the mailbox, which had turned Into a bird comfort station. This kind of situation couldn't have made the local postman very happy, cither. So, to keep the birds from delivering their daily Con- boy wrapped it with wire, making a safe landing precarious even for the foxiest of birds. Apparently the idea is working.

Mary Ellen Hawkins, R-Naples, said today. In their Monday afternoon meeting, the area legislators agreed to ask the Legislature to send a resolution to the U.S. Congress asking it to amend the federal Interstate High- ways Act to include a toll facility in the federal system. Under the current federal legislation, only state money can be used to finance toll road construction and federal mon- ey cannot be used to build toll highways. Rep. Hawkins asked for a toll road last month when Depart- ment of Transportation (DOT) officials announced that 1-75 construction had been given a low priority and that construc- tion probably would not begin until the late 1990s. She said then that the region could not wait that long and renewed ther proposal for a toll-road link from Naples to Tampa. THE LEGISLATORS also agreed Monday to support DOT secretary Thomas Webb Jr.'s alternative proposal for a bond program financed by an addi- tional one cent gasoline tax to finance construction of the roadway. Webb said the bond issue is predicated on the fact that the DOT will be allowed to defer i repayment of a loan to the general revenue fund after completion of the Florida interstate program. Last year the loan included million earmarked for 1-75 that was used for other projects, Rep. Hawkins said. The bond issue would be for million, with a 20 year term at 6 per cent interest, Webb said. SINCE future federal inter- state funds are not expected to cover the entire issue, a one- cent gas tax would have to be levied. This tax would require a state constitutional amend- ment and voter approval by a statewide referendum. "We have decided to go along with the one-cent gas tax even though it requires a Rep. Hawkins said this monring.

The raids were the culmina- tion of a three-month inves- tigation that turned up illegal sales of explosives. Randall Evan Moore, 27, of 1124 Frank Whileman Blvd., Naples, Michael of 5074 25th Place SW, Golden Gate and Terry Gene Stoner, 20, of 846 105th Ave. N., are charged with manufacturing, possessing and selling coun- terfeit currency. Indingaro and Stoner also are charged with possession and delivery of explosives. Donald Deering, 48, of 182 Ridge Drive, Pine Ridge, is charged with conspiracy to deliver explosives. Sheriff Doug Hendry said his investigators purchased two- and-a-half pounds of explosives April 24 from two individuals the deputies identified as In- dingaro and Stoner. On April 30 his agents again purchased some explosives this time 36 pound as well as about 90 blasting caps and two booby- trap devices. Last night deputies, assisted by agents from the Treasury Department's Alcohol, Tob- baco and Firearms Division, moved in to make the arrests. It was then that the bogus money, blank paper and print- ing plates were confiscated, Sheriff's spokesman Capt. Ray Barnett said. Barnett said that Moore, Stoner and Indingaro were ar- rested at their homes. Indin- garo was apprehended in his car while driving on the North Trail last night. All four are being held in the Collier County Jail.

The plan was mapped out by Ford's top political advisers and submitted to him in recent days. By the President is required to set up his own campaign committee until he wins the GOP presidential nomination. Afterwards, he will make his bid for a full term in the presidency with the opera- tional machinery of the Repub- lican National Committee. Presidential spokesman Ron Nessen has repeatedly said Ford has every intention of running for President. Presi- dential aides have urged Ford to get started laying his plans, particularly in view of the cross-country speech-making by former California Gov. Ford scheduled a nation- ally televised news confer- ence his first since the surrender of South Vietnam to the Viet Cong for p.m. EOT. Ronald Reagan, leader of the GOP's conservative wing and a possible Ford challenger. Nessen said last week Ford wnuld announce his campaign committee arrangements and manager soon. Ford is determined to avoid the pitfalls of Richard Nixon's re-election committee, which became involved in the Water- gate scandal. He is expected to keep close tabs on any new political committee set in his Ford's schedule today began with breakfast with Republican congressional leaders. His proposed million in assist- ance to Vietnamese refugees was high on the agenda. Ford scheduled a nationally televised news conference first since the' surrender of South Vietnam to the Viet Cong -for p.m. EOT. Ford is in the process of evaluating the posture of the United States in the Pacific in the light of events in Vietnam. Nessen said an administra- tion review of Middle East policy will be completed by the end of May. Ford plans meetings with Egyptian Presi- dent Anwar Sadat in Salzburg, Austria, on June 1-2, and with Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, June 11-12 in Washing- ton. McGovern Visits Cuba; Hits Boycott McGovern greeted by Cuban official HAVANA (UPI) Sen. George McGovern toured Hava- na today, dining on black beans and rice at an intellectual hangout and calling for an end to the U.S. trade boycott against Cuba. The South Dakota Democrat arrived in Havana Monday evening on a three-day fact-. finding visit and drove right from the airport to a lecture on farm reform. "I have no powers to lift the embargo, but open trade is in the interest of both McGovern said on arrival at Havana's Jose Marti Airport. Later in the evening, he dined with a group of Cuban intellectuals at La Bodegila del Medio -a quaint restaurant in the old section of Havana. Poet Nicolas Guillen, who chatted with McGovern over a typical Cuban meal of black beans, rice, fried bananas and pork, said he liked the senator's "poetic sense of life." McGovern set out today to visit a mental hospital, a school, a museum and a nightclub in Havana. But he has yet to announce a meeting with Cuban Premier Fidel Castro. Jesus Montane Oropesa, a member of Ihe Cuban Commu- nist party's ruling Central Committee and a guerrilla comrade of Castro during the 1950s, greeted the senator at the airport with a warm (Continued on Page 3A) Joszef Mindszenty Dies; Fought Hungary Regime CARDINAL MINDSZENTY dies at age 83. VIENNA (UPI) Joszef Cardinal Mindszenty died, today in a Vienna hospital, the Roman Catholic Church an- nounced. He was 83. Mindszenly won worldwide fame when he was given asylum in the U.S. Legation in Budapest during the 1956 Hungarian revolution. Mindszenty had been sen- tenced to life imprisonment by the Communist regime in Hungary in 1949 but was released in 1956 and granted asylum in the Legation where he remained until 1971. A spokesman at the palace ot Vienna's Archbishop-Cardinal Franz Koenig said Mindszenty died at p.m. a.m. EOT.) The spokesman said the former primate of Hungary underwent prostate surgery at a Vienna hospital this morning and died four hours later from heart failure, The ailing cardinal was released by Communislauthori- ties after extensive negotiations and ended his 15 years of asylum by visiting Vatican City for talks with the pope. In October, 1971 Mindzehty came to Vienna for a new life of exile despite misgivings by both Austrian church and state officials. He settled into the Pazmaneum, a Roman Catholic Church home. The four-story home, built at the turn of the century, is a plain, gray stone structure situated, ironically, next door to the U.S. Embassy on Bolt- zmanngasse in Vienna's quiet Ninth District. During his 15 years in the U.S. Legation he remained under the life sentence for treason, a verdict passed by the Coommunist regime he haled and (ought. Under the amnesty which permitted him to leave Hungary he promised never to return to Hungary. That promise, he said, was heaviest cross of my life."

Too far behind, some mem- bers of Ullman's Ways and Means Committee felt. They considered the tax bill too watered down for its original purpose savingaconsiderable amount of gasoline and other fuels. The committee has approved in tenlalive form the biggest issues. It hopes to finish in the next day or two with Ihe remaining issues -specific quotas on imports, a surtax on. industrial use of fuels, a windfall profits lax on oil companies and credits for solar energy use. The committee got over one big hurdle Monday.' It ap- proved, 21 to 13, a proposal by Rep. Joe Waggonner Jr., D-La., to tax cars based on how many miles they gel to (he gallon of gasoline. The tax would fall on manufacturers whose domesti- cally produced flcel of autos do not average 18 miles In the gallon or belter in 1978 models, 19 or better in 1979 models and 20 or better in 1980 models. If Ihe fleet met those standards, the individual cars would all escape taxalion. !f the fleet falls below the standard, then those individual models (hat do not measure up would be taxed. The amount of the lax would be 2 per cent of the wholesale price in 1978 for cars getting 17 to 18 miles a gallon, 3 per cent for those getting 16 to per cent for 15 to 16, and 5 per cent for less than 15 miles lo the gallon. The standard would rise by one mile per gallon in 1979 and another mile per gallon in 1980. Waggonner said Ihe stand- ards are aboul what Ihe auto industry has already told President Fnrd and the nation it can meet. "It is indeed Rep. Otis G. Pike, D-N.Y., told UPI. "A powderpuff. The standards arc set so low there really isn'l any inhibition, againsl an automaker." Waggonner agreed the stand- ards had been set al a minimum requircmenl called il "a nudge" the industry to meet. ;
