WASHINGTON (AP) - President Ford’s second veto has killed a bid to beef up the | research battle against diseases and pests which annually destroy $4 billion worth of meat and poultry. “Because this bill would add further to the federal taxpayers’ burdens without significantly meeting national needs and Ford’s aides have made clear would only add to inflationary in economic hearings in pressures within the economy, I congress this week that he has feel that I must withhold my ap no intention of returning to mandatory controls of the kind that government officials now say were a mistake. But Fitzsimmons told reporters after a 45-minute meeting with Ford in the Oval Office: “There should be a complete freeze on all prices and wages. Something has to be done to shock the American people back into reality.” Fitzsimmons said in a meeting on the White House lawn with newsmen that Ford only listened and did not react to his suggestion. But he quoted Ford as saying he had in mind “a program that he is going to come out with” — one worked out by the President and his economic advisers. “Slap in Face” Fitzsimmons said he not only suggested a return to wage-price controls but told Ford that he should also consider rolling back prices in some sectors of the economy. The union head said a IO percent price increase announced by General Motors for 1975 autos tm the day Ford was sworn in was “a slap in the face of the President.” On emerging from his home in Alexandria, Va., Ford was asked Friday if he had reached a decision on his selection for vice-president. With a broad grin he said, “I haven’t been thinking about it.” Press Secretary Jerald ter-Horst said Ford probably won't announce his choice until next Tuesday or Wednesday.

The legislation would have authorized $47 million more each year to go along with the $40 million at present spent annually on programs involving animal health research. The house agriculture committee chairman, Rep. Poage (D-Texas), pronounced the bill dead for this year because “we couldn’t pass this bill over a veto.” “Ill-Advised” Its chief sponsor, Rep. Melcher (D-Mont.) the lone veterinarian in the house, called the veto “ill-advised and the result of the new President still having the Office of Management and Budget call the shots at the White House.” Saying he would offer the measure again next year,!

Ecevit said the Turkish troops were expected to reach their “military objectives no later than the cease-fire hour.” The objectives apparently involve carving out a Turkish sector in the northern third of the island which would be cut off from the south by a line bisecting Cyprus {rom Lefka in the west to Famagusta in the east Claimed Lefka Turkish troops captured Famagusta and the Turkish Cypriot radio claimed the Turks also had taken Lefka before the cease-fire deadline.

The $20 billion program of non-nuclear energy research was added to the bill in an amendment by Sen. Jackson (D-Wash.) who said it will correct an imbalance in the legislation. The Jackson amendment was added on a vote of 78 to 0 and the full measure then passed by voice vote.

Friday what she hopes will be a successful 32-mile swim across I Lake Ontario to Toronto. Cindy Nicholas of Scarborough, Ont., began the crossing at 2:20 a.m. from this northwestern New York community. The water temperature was 71 and the lake was calm. The only person thus far to swim the lake was Marilyn Bell of Toronto, who completed the feat in 20 hours on Sept. 8, 1954. She was 16. Miss Nicholas is following the route used by Miss Bell, who was racing with Florence Chadwick, famed English Channel swimmer. But Miss Chadwick gave up the Lake Ontario crossing after going 15 miles. The five-feet-four 135-pound Miss Nicholas said she had hoped to swim the lake last year, but did not feel mature enough. board motorboat and the other a sailboat. With her were her father; her trainer, AI Waites, a Toronto swimming coach; and Waites’ son, Bruce, 21, whose role was to pace her. Bruce planned to jump into the lake and swim with her from time to time when she got “By that,” she said, “I mean off pace I didn’t feel I was able to cope with the panic situations that would come up.” She was accompanied Friday by two pace boats, one an out- The plan was for Miss Nicholas to be fed three times during the crossing.

Family Plans Drifting Life on Houseboat Report Shirley Black Is Envoy ACCRA, Ghana (AP) - Tho government of Ghana has announced that Shirley Temple Black, former child movie star, has been appointed U.S. ambassador to the African nation. Although there has been no White House announcement, the state department in Washington said there was no reason to dispute the report. CORONA, S. D. (AR) -Stung by the falling cattle market and anxious to get away for a while, the Marcus. Joachim family is planning to drift through life for a few years on a giant homemade houseboat. Joachim, 26, who raised IOO head of cattle on his father’s farm near here before the1 bottom dropped out of the market, drew up the plans himself and began building the vessel in May. He plans to launch it on the Missouri river, and is constructing the 70-foot-long and 20-foot-high vessel on a trailer so all he has to do is pull it 200 miles south to the launch ramp at Sioux City. “He’s been playing with the idea for four years and we just decided to do it,” said his wife, Barbara, 22. “The cattle weren’t making much of a living . . . and ho figured that before the kids are in school, we’d all get away while we can. I think it will be fun.” The couple and their two daughters, Selissa, 4, and Nicole, 8 months, live with his father, Victor. Joachim, who worked on boats in Alaska, hopes to have his finished in October. The family will leave then, unless they’re short of money, in which case they’ll save and sail next spring. The boat’s main structure is const met cd of 2 - by - 6 - inch planks, and the bottom and sides will be covered by fiberglass. The living quarters, 14 feet by 40 feet, will be built on the main deck with a wheel house mounted on top. There will be two bedrooms and three watertight compartments for storage. Tanks will be built in the hold to carry 1,500 gallons of fuel and water. “It will be just like a large trailer house,” Mm. Joachim said. “It will have a washer, heater, stove, lights, everything. “We plan to go to New Orleans, but after that we’re not sure. Maybe we’ll go tion on the strife-torn island early Wednesday following the collapse of the second round of Geneva peace talks Tuesday j night. Ecevit said, “Now we have j ample time for detailed work towards setting up a new state of [Cyprus. Now the security of th#: I Turkish Cypriots is under strong guarantee.” Meanwhile, the danger of war between Greece and Turkey lessened as Greek Premier Constantine Caramanlis said in a around the West Coast and up broadcast .that the Greek army to Alaska, lie’s making it so we can go on the ocean. “If we run short of money, we’ll stop and he’ll get a job, probably as a welder. But we really won’t need much money. “I’m putting up a lot of food, and we’ll butcher a steer before we go and put it in a freezer. “We’re not really sure how long we’ll stay with it. We’ll see how we like it.” would not reinforce the Greek Cypriot troops because this would leave Greece defenseless. Turkish tanks late Thursday afternoon rolled into Famagusta, the Mediterranean island's chief port. The action established a 35-mile line from the capital, Nicosia, to the east coast. Greeks Fled Associated Press Correspondent Peter Arnett reported the Greek Cypriot national a Korean who has been living in Osaka. Mrs. Yoshii was charged with violating emigration and passport laws. Police said she admitted giving Moon her husband’s birth certificate to help him get the passport. Seoul’s chief prosecutor, Rim Il-too, said the .38 caliber revolver Moon used in the attack was taken from the Osaka police, and the police said it was one of two pistols stolen from their armory on July 18 along with ammunition belts and handcuffs.. Kim said Moon smuggled the pistol into Korea inside a radio. The prosecutor’s office questioned Moon Friday and said he insisted he was acting alone in the unsuccessful attempt Thursday to assassinate Park. A spokesman said, however, that search for accomplices was on since there were indications he had been associated with leftist movements. Except for the reference to leftist contacts, the government gave no indication of why Moon wanted to kill the president. Mrs. Park, 48, and a 16-year-old girl choir singer were wounded fatally when Moon started shooting as the president was making an Independence day address in the Seoul National Theater. There were about 1,800 persons in the theater, and the program was being televised. Park dropped behind the lectern and was unhurt. Moon was wounded in the thigh as security guards opened fire on him, and witnesses said the teenage girl was hit by police bullets. But the government said Moon’s bullets hit the girl and the gunman himself as well as Mrs. Park.
