It was to have been Miss Callas' first New York singing appearance since 1905. Borders on Flu Dr. Louis Parris, who met re- porters insidB Carnegie hall a few minutes after the scheduled 8 p.m. concert, described the opera star's ailment as "acute inflammation of the entire upper respiratory tract, border- ing on influenza.

BALTIMORE (AP) Spiro Agnew spent at least of taxpayers' money to finance his ;olfing vacations while serving as vice-president, the Baltimore Sun said Monday. In a story from its Washing- ton bureau, the Sun said Agnew made at least 23 trips to his fa- vorite golfing mecca, Palm Springs, Calif., during his 4M: years in office. The Sun said nine of those jaunts were direct trips from Washington. It figured that each trip cost a minimum of a total of at least a quarter of a million dollars for the use of an Air Force 707 jet, fuel, and pilots alone. Some indirect trips to Palm Springs came after stops in Los Angeles or Phoenix to give a i. Others, however, came after less direct stopovers like St. Louis, Minneapolis, and, in one case, Beaufort, S.C. The defense department told the Sun that many of the trips were for election campaigns or conventions, and the govern- ment was reimbursed for their cost. But the paper said far more were made at taxpayers expense. It also reported that Agnew's travel log was' dotted with jaunts to the Virgin Islands, where he owns a condominium, Montego bay, Jamaica, Wesl Palm Beach, Opa Locka, Fla. and other garden spots.
