The legislation is designed, he1 said, to help states and communities “provide smoother andi more orderly adjustment to economic changes and limit the number of new distressed areas.” The measure would phase out the Economic Development Administration and such agencies as the Appalachian Regional Commission. Nixon said these programs have been ineffective because they disburse federal funds by projects “in amounts too small to do much lasting good.” Under his proposal, at least 80 Do you have a few hours you could devote to a necessary project for which your only reward will be the good feeling that comes from helping others? lf so, we have just the place for you. Would you like lo act as recording secretary for a non-profit organization7 This would involve about two hours the fourth Monday of every other month. Not much time involved, but a very necessary job to be done. Did you ever think of spending a little of your time helping a child as a Big Brother — Big Sister? We are having more and more requests for this type of volunteer opportunity. We have a group of pre-school children who would very much like to have some people help their teachers. This could be either male or female teacher assistants. Doesn’t this sound like it could be an enjoyable way to spend a morning or afternoon each week? Group leaders and assistants who would like working with youth (fourth to sixth graders) in an inter-city activity are badly needed. This could be done by high school or college age people. We have many requests for assistants with the elderly and handicapped. This involves many efferent areas of assistance. A new program involving children is being developed in one of the local agencies. If you are interested in working with children .and helping in the development of this program, please call us for more information. For further information about these and many other opportunities, please telephone the Voluntary Action Center (395-6942), or stop in at 712 Third avenue SE, weckdavs between 8:30 and 4:30.

Lawmakers Ask Pardon For Calley ATLANTA (AP) ~ A resolution calling for a full pardon or a reduced sentence for Et. William Calley has been passed by the Georgia house of representatives. Directed to President Nixon and Army Secretary Howard Ii. Callaway, the resolution, approved Monday by a vote of 80 to 23, says (’alley “has been sufficiently punished Calley was convicted March 20, 1071, of murdering at least 22 Vietnamese civilians during a sweep by his platoon through the South Vietnamese village of My bai in 1968. Calley was sentenced to life in prison, but the sentence was reduced to 20 years by Et. Gen. Albert O. Connor, then commanding general of the Third army, which includes Ft. Benning. Shortly after his conviction, Nixon ordered Calley confined at his Ft. Benning apartment rather than in a military prison. Nixon said he would review the case personally after appeals through the military justice system were completed. (Bailey's attorneys have filed a petition in civilian court challenging the conviction and seeking to prevent the army from transferring Calley to a military prison. Federal Judge J. Robert Elliott of Columbus, Ga., has scheduled a hearing for Feb. 27. The resolution passed Monday declares that there were “conflicting accounts of what occurred” at My Lai and that Calley was “acting in what he felt were the best interests of his country.” The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Wed., l ei). 20, 1974 IC Reminiscing Stories Not Reported Mexican Leader Will Visit Cuba MEXICO CITY (AP) - Pres-ident Luis Echeverria will visit Cuba in the near future for the first visit by a Mexican chief executive since Fidel Castro’s; revolution in 1959. “I have been invited, and I will go as soon as I can,” he told newsmen Monday, noting that relations between Mexico! and Cuba are “excellent.” Mexico never broke relations with Castro’s Communist re-; gime despite a 1964 resolution by the Organization of American States calling on all Latin American countries to do so. By Boh Considine NEW YORK - “When Should the Story Not be Reported” was one of the topics discussed at last week’s seminar of the Pittsburgh Communications Foundation. The matter, so pertinent to these times, was debated during a round of meetings at the city’s (PPC) Point Park college, and later at a dinner at the Pittsburgh Press Club, sponsored bv WTAE TV. It, .stirred some memories of personally strangled stories. During World war ll, the late great John Considine, who produced “Boys Town” and other | winners for MGM, asked me to visit Dannemora, the bleak upstate New York prison known to its generally case-hardened inmates as the “Siberia” of the state’s clinks. Ile was interested in making a film based on a chaplain who had managed to build — with the help of the convicts — a church on the prison grounds dedicated to Dismay, the “Good Thief” who was crucified beside Christ on Calvary. Under Construction Dannemora was about halffilled at the time. But when the warden took me for a ride around the prison reservation I noticed a large building under construction. War-rationed steel girders were being laced together by busy welders and derricks. I asked him what was being built. “The new wing of cells,” the warden said. “But why? You’re only about half-filled now.” “Yeah.” he said, “but we gotta get ready for the guys coming hack when the war’s over.” After being sick for a bit, I decided not to write it. Axis Bob Considins Sally would have had a ball with that one. Then there was something Gen. Jonathan Wainwright told me when I was ghosting his memoirs as the highest ranking PDW in American history. Ev-| erything was going pretty well with the hero’s story. Our rapport was good. Ile had insists that I call him “Skinny,” and that he call me Bob. Inevitably, we got to the point where he had to describe what it was like! to be beaten in a Japanese prison camp. Tears began rolling down his cheeks (and mine, too) as he recalled a slugging he had, undergone at the hands and fist! of a Japanese sentry, one night as he returned to his hard board bod after going to the latrine. “Into the Dirt” “I was determined not to fall down in front of that fellow,”; Skinny recalled. “But a right to my jaw knocked me into the dirt at his feet.” When I could summon the courage, I asked him what thoughts went through his mind as he lay there in the dirt. Skinny took a handkerchief out of his khaki shirt pocket, dusted his eyes and blew a great blast through his nose. Then he sat up straight in his chair, like a West Point plebe. “I’ll tell you what went (brough my mind, Mr. Con sidine,” he said loud, clear and crisp. “A private should never strike a lieutenant general!” I never called that wonderful man “Skinny” again. Or put the story in his book. Somehow, it just didn’t fit the heroic image. Another one I didn’t write, fortunately, was something Gen. MacArthur said at the end of a sorely frustrating luncheon at his home in Tokyo when his forces had been driven down into the Pusan arca in the early stages of the Korean war. All he wanted to talk about during the 2-hour lunch was sports. It was a monologue I couldn’t break into, a nightmarish experience for the only reporter at his table. Finally upon being ushered out, I blurted something to the effect that I had just been in Korea and had seen his forces being pushed closer and closer to the sea — and what the hell did he expect to do about that calamity? “Within a Month” MacArthur quietly replied, “I will have my headquarters in North Korea within a month.” I decided he was off his rocker and didn't write it. And just as well, because 25 days later, he pulled off his Inchon landing, one of the all-time classic surprise attacks. Shortly after President Truman fired MacArthur I had an interview with General Eisenhower at his NATO headquarters outside Paris. He was being courted for the GOF presidential nomination. I asked him what he would have done if he had been in MacArthur^ shoes when the multitudes of Chinese “volunteers” came over the mountains near the Yalu. Ike instantly and instinctively said, “I would have put every bomber I had in the air and sent them up there above the Yalu and bombed the hell out of their supply lines. I wouldn’t have asked the U.N. or Washington: and if anybody tried to give me hell I’d tell them my job was to save the lives of their sons.” MacArthur had been canned for proposing to do just that. I had a scoop that would have hit every front page in the world, and probably would have cost him the presidency. I cunningly changed the subject, and by the end of the interview we were talking about the spur on Joe DiMaggio’s heel. My mind was boiling with three thoughts: 1) whether to phone the stunning story into our office in Paris; 2) whether to take a fast car to town ar.d write it at the office, and 3) how to spend the Pulitzer Prize money. Ike made up my mind. At the door he paused and said, “Of course, Bob, everything I’ve said remains in the room.” IO YEARS AGO - A last-ditch effort to avert complete diplomatic rupture between the West and Zanzibar’s revolutionary government ended in failure and brought expulsion for British and American representatives on the island.
