POCATELLO, IDAHO MONDAY, JULY 28, 1975 15 CENTS President Ford Flies to By FRANK CORMIER Associated Press Writer WARSAW, Poland (AP) President Ford flew to Poland today for a two-day official vis- it, the first in a series of meet- ings with East European Com- munist leaders. The President was greeted at Warsal's military airport by Polish Communist party leader Edward Gierek, President Hen- ryk Jablonski and Premier Piotr Jaroszewicz. After a welcoming ceremony, Ford and Gierek left the airport in an open limousine and drove through streets lined with cheering Poles to Ford's guest residence in the Royal Wilanow Palace just outside the capital. Ford arrived in Warsaw after talks with West German Chan- cellor Helmut Schmidt in Bonn that focused chiefly on Western economic ills, and a symbolic visit to American and German troops at a remote outpost known to those stationed there as "the Rock." Ford and Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger held a final session with Schmidt and Ger- man Foreign Minister Hans- Dietrich Genscher over break- fasl today at Gyranich Castle. The breakfast was considera- bly delayed, however, when Schmidt's helicopter had to turn back halfway between Bonn and Gymnich because of thick fog. His party waited for limousines to pick them up before con- tinuing on their way to meet Ford. The presidential visit to West Germany was capped Sunday night by a three-hour state din- ner aboard a Rhine cruise ship that passed the peak where, ac- cording to legend; Siegfried slew the dragon a local tale like that of David and Goliath. HSr-g 11 moon, were the pilings of the destroyed bridge at Remagen, a strategic objective that American forces seized from Hitler's legions near the end of World War II. Ironically, one stop scheduled for the President and Jlrs. Ford in Warsaw was the recon- structed Old Town section de- stroyed principally by the Nazis in that same war. Wars past did not figure in Ford's two-night stay in Bonn, however. He and Schmidt and Secretary of Stale Henry A. Kissinger, talked chiefly about cooperation to end a deep economic slump embracing virtually all Hie non- Communist developed coun- tries. Following a meeting thai ran 30 minutes beyond the time al- lotted, Ford told newsmen: "The chancellor and 1 agreed, that it was vitally important that the economic policies o( Germany and the European community be integrated with our own economic policies." Schmidt said the subject would be pursued at a meeting in Helsinki. Finland, following Furd's stop in Poland. Ford. British Prime Minister Harold Wilson and French President Valery Giseord d'Estaing. Heads ol 35 governments, in- cluding Soviet leader Leonid I. Brezhnev, will gather in Hel- sinki to sign a nonbinding state- ment of principles intended to guide their conduct toward each other and. to some extent, toward their own citizens. Ford has come under some criticism at home tor willing- ness to sign an agreement re- garded in some quarters as tac- itly accepting Soviet dominate in eastern Europe. Ford has countered that the agreement may promote better relations among nations and cannot do any harm. In addi- tion, he told interviewers from Newsweek magazine, he in- tends to express American mis- givings before he signs the document and will tell the So- viets he will measure '.heir in- tentions by haw they live up to it.

In an interview with the Tel Aviv newspaper Haaretz, Peres said Israel had gone "a long, long way" and he could not en- vision any more Israeli con- cessions to Egypt. If Cairo's latest proposals are final, Peres said, then "Israel has nothing more to offer." Israeli sources said Sunday that Egypt had rebuilt its war capability following the 1973 fighting and Israel now feels the chances of another war are much higher than a year ago. Today, Peres said that Egyp- tian President Anwar Sadat "perhaps believes he can fur- ther harm American-Israeli re- lations by trying to force Wash- ington to squeeze a bit more out of Israel." The strategic Mitla and Gidi passes in the Sinai desert would not be surrendered so that Egypt could turn them to its advantage against Israel, the defense minister added. Peres said the Israeli offer included alternative deploy- ments at the passes but did not concede their strategic value. He said the latest Egyptian proposal showed Sadat wanted "a great deal from Israel in ex- change for nothing." Rabin told Israeli state tele- vision Friday that Israel had turned down "in their main and predicted the negotiations would be pro- longed. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger met Sunday with Herman Bills, the U.S. am- bassador to Egypt, and sent him 'back to Cairo with Israel's latest reply to the Egyptians. Kissinger directed Eilts to meet him in Yugoslavia next Sunday with the Egyptian re- sponse. U.S. officials would not dis- cuss the plan, but it was said that Israel was outlining new thinking on further withdrawals of their troops in the Sinai and on the role to be played by U.S. personnel in monitoring any- new settlement. from the AP Wires Gurney Trial Goes to Jury TAMPA, Fla. (AP) The trial of former Sen. Edward Gurney and three other men charged with conspiring to raise an illegal slush fund went to a jury today after 22 weeks of testimony and legal arguments. U.S. Dist.

Man Charged in FBI Slayings WASHINGTON (AP) James Theodore Eagle, 19, re- mains in custody after being charged in the deaths of two FBI agents on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota., Eagle, one of four persons being sought by the two agents when they were shot June 26, turned himself in to federal au- thorities in Rapid City on July 9.

(AP) High winds and rain from Hurricane Blanche hit southwestern Nova Scotia today as the storm began its crossing of the peninsula off the coasts of Maine and Canada. The hurricane, however, was reported weakening rapidly as it continued on its northerly track toward the Bay of Fundy. The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami, Fla. said re- ports indicated that Shelburne, on the southwest coast, was being buffetted by 50 mile-per-hour winds. Blanche was reported moving toward the north-northeast at 30 m.p.h, the center said, and was expected to lose much of its force as it crossed the peninsula. Bill to Hike Vets Benefits WASHINGTON (AP) The House passed by voice vote to- day a bill providing increases of 10 to 12 per cent for two mil- lion veterans disabled in military service more than double what the Ford administration asked. The Senate is expected to act on the measure later this week and send it to President Ford. There has been no in- dication of whether he might veto it. The bill is a compromise which Chairman Vance Hartke, D-Ind., of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, an- nounced Monday had been reached on separate Senate and House versions passed earlier. Time Will Not Sign Censorship NEW DELHI, India (AP) Time magazine has an- nounced it will not sign a censorship statement which the government of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi has pressured representatives of other foreign news media to sign. Time informed the Indian government of its decision Sun- day and said it would withdraw its correspondent, David Aik- man. today.

Agency Urges Consolidation of Railroads By JAY PERKINS Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) A federal planning agency recom- mended today that the govern- ment consolidate seven finan- cially ailing northeastern rail- roads into one sys- tem in the biggest corporate reorganization in American his- the traveling public, the plan also called for the creation of an all-passenger railroad line between New York City and Washington and for improved passenger train service on 16 other routes. In the report, the U.S. Rail- way Association told Congress that miles of lightly used track now owned by the rail- roads in the 17 states they serve should be abandoned or sub- sidized with federal-stale funds. That track carries about 2 per cent of all traffic on the seven railroads. The plan also recommended that the remaining miles of trackbe sold to pri- vately owned railroads to allow those carriers to extend their lines and create competition for (he proposed new railroad in all major cities in the affected re- gion. The USRA program was de- veloped after months of public hearings, preliminary reports and recommendations by vari- ous government agencies. Con- gress has 60 working days to accept or reject the plan. If Congress does nothing, the pro- Voting Rights Bill Goes to Ford WASHINGTON (AP) Extension of the IMS Voting Rights Act for seven more years and expansion of it to cover Mexican- Americans and other minorities in some artaTwas approved by the House today and sent to President Ford. A U11 extending the act until 1982 keeps seven Southern states under federal electoral areas in which five per cent or more of the population consists of Mexican-Americans, Alaskan natives, American Indians or people of Asian ancestry where there is a history of Inw voter registration and discrimination. The House originally had voted to extend the act for 10 years, but accepted a Senate bill extending it for seven and sent it to President Ford. gram automatically goes into effect. The backbone of the proposed new railroad, known as Con- Rail, would be the Perm Cen- tral. Other railroads to be in- cluded in the reorganization are the Erie Lackawanna, the Reading, the Centra) of New Jersey, the Lehigh Valley, the Lehig'h and Hudson River and the Ann Arbor. II approved by Congress, the USRA plan would set up a rail system extending across Amer- ica's manufacturing heartland from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mississippi River. The 17 states directly affected by the plan contain 55 per cent of all manu- facturing plants in the country and they also are mj.jor pro- ducers ol coal and manufac- turers of steel. The reorganization would be the largest in history, USRA said. It would exceed even the 1911 government-ordered re- shuffling of the Standard Oil conglomerate. If the plan is rejected, USRA, the Department of Trans- portation and the Rail Services Planning Office of the Inter- state Commerce Commission will confer and make necessary changes. The plan then would be resubmilted to Congress for a second look.
