LO CITY FINAL IO CENTS VOLUME 92 —NUMBER 91 CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, APRIL IO. 1974 GOLDA ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES OUT President: Bottleneck In Congress SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) -President Nixon Wednesday charged congress with providing the “bottleneck” that has led to the higher living costs and unemployment, especially in Michigan’s auto plants. Nixon, arriving in Saginaw to campaign on behalf of Rcpubli-can congressional candidate James Sparling, said men like Sparling are needed to push his programs through congress. Rural Parts Nixon spoke to an estimated 5,000 persons at the airport before taking a helicopter to rural northeast Michigan parts of the1 Eighth district to speak on behalf of Sparling. Campaigning for the first’ time since 1972, Nixon said this ‘ is the first time in 12 years that the U. S. is at peace with all the | nations of the world, adding that! the problems the nation does have “are the problems of peace.” Nixon was greeted by Michigan’s Republican leadership on: his arrival at Tri-City airport. He walked with Sparling to shake hand? with many persons on the fringe of the crowd. The crowd carried many pro-i Nixon placards and American flags, but there were also signs urging that the President be impeached Needed Legislation Blaming local unemploymentj DES MOINES (AP) — Iowa bi* 7,-7, rf ,,f,cony'der *whit*Housc propos- charged that congress has not 133,4 mill,on by 1J" lf ,hc lc8,s'    al    to    wait    two    more    weeks    be- passed needed legislation    lature adopts most of the spend-    fore    replying    to    the committee's Nixon said major congres- »ng and tax relief proposals bc-?ional priorities for improving fore it. the lawmakers’ fiscal of-the economy include legislation fjcer predicts lo regulate natural gas and to G RanRln ,d (h relax auto emissions standards^    m(,ans    „ Referring to his meeting with Wednes<fc Enough Gas To Take    Exhausted, Summer Trips: Simon c,... ^KINGTON (UPI) — En-[gasoline stations that rely on ^ - Jf *3    «    IV    vV?

First Shipment The Federal Energy Office reported Tuesday the first major shipment of Mid-East oil since the lifting of the oil embargo had arrived at Norfolk, Va. It totaled 344,000 barrels. Exxon Corp. said its own initial shipment of Arab oil — 50,-000 barrels of crude aboard the Esso Barcelona — was due to arrive Wednesday in New York harbor. The FEO also reported that oil production in Saudi Arabia now was 8.3 million barrels a day — higher than before the embargo — and might go to ll million daily by next year. Oil Profits “A few years earlier and we would have dismissed it as an unimportant inconvenience. A few years later and its impact would have been too large for I any federal program to avoid or alleviate.” TEL AVIV (UPI) — Premier Golda Meir told her Labor party Wednesday she will resign Thursday. “I am exhausted,” the 75-year-old Mrs. Meir was quoted as saying in reference to the cabinet crisis she has grappled with since the October Mid-East war.
