(AP) In a speech prepared for the museum ceremony, President Reagan saluted former President Gerald Ford, who defeated Reagan for the 1976 Republican presidential nomination and almost became his running mate at'last summer's Republican National Convention, as "a good president who led us well, a good man who sought .to serve others." Hailing Ford's economic policies, Reagan said that "when he left office, the economy was again moving in the right direction with inflation shrunk to a yearly rate of 4.8 percent." "Gerald Ford healed America' because he so thoroughly understood Reagan said. "His was and is an unquestioning belief in the soundness of our way of governing and in the resiliancy of our peopled "Gerald Ford healed America because he understood the ad- venture of America: her way of. governing, her people, and the sourceof herstrengthas a nation." Reagan, in Grand Rapids for the dedication of the Gerald K. Ford Presidential Museum, met separately with Mexican President Jose Lopez Portillo and Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau on Thursday and invited them to breakfast this morning. President Reagan, calling his informal summit "just is narrowing differences with Mexico over strife in El Salvador but facing slow progress on easing tensions with Canada over energy and pollution, aides say. U.S. officials emphasized the progress made during Reagan's approximately 45-minute meeting wi th Lopez Por tillo. The 45-minute session with Trudeau was tougher, dealing'with what the official called "very dif- ficult, some would say problems." "Our interest is in making he said. "It just doesn't come as rapidly as some would like." Page 2) Casein limits are defeated in Senate WASHINGTON (AP> another blow' to the dairy farmer, the Republican-controlled Senate rejected Thursday, a plea from the dairy industry to curtail the amount of casein foreign countries import to the United Stales. Casein is used as a base for cheap imitations of cheeses and other dairy items. Dairy farmers say it is less nutritious, is a .competilive burden in their market, and is taking over fields which could be served by domeslic dried milk. proposal to cut the import quota was sponsored by Sens. Larry Pressler, R-S.D., and Robert Hasten Jr., R-Wis. H would have limited casein imports to about 69.5 million pounds in coming years, about half the average annual amount imported over the past five years. It was killed 00-35 as the Senate continued debate on a multi-billion- dollar, four-year farm bill in which dairy price supports have' also received a sharp setback at. the urging of Reagan Republicans and Southern Democrats. While .culling down milk and peanut support programs, senators decided 61-33 to maintain a man- datory loan support program for the sugar industry. They also voted 53-42 against a plan to dismantle a tobacco support program. Kaslen and Sen. William Proxmire, D-Wis., were among Ihe 42 voting to dismantle the plan. Hasten has said he can go along with the Reagan administration's wish to reduce, support of dairy farms as long as the administration does likewise to other forms of agriculture. Agriculture S ecrelary John Block, in a slalement read at a cheese conference in Madison, said the administration wants to wean farmers from federal subsidies. "I am in full support of a dairy price-support Block said, "but I do not agree with the leveL'' Farmers have requested supports of at least 75 percent of spokesmen say they fear Reagan Republicans will cut it lo 50 percent by 1984. Block, whose statement was read after he cancelled his speech ap- pearance ai_ the Madison con- ference, said: "P.eople who work in agriculture want prosperity, but nol at the taxpayers'expense." During Senate debate, Pressler argued lhat casein imports, about 152.2 million pounds in 1980, are displacing the domestic market for nonfat dry milk which can be sub- stituted for casein in many cases. Casein, for which New Zealand is the largest exporter, is used, in dietary foods, drugs, glue and paints. It also can be used in dairy substitutes. Farm spokesmen say foreign dairy interests import as much milk and cheese to the United Stales as. they are allowed under food quotas, then convert Iheir surplus to casein and continue their imports under the casein industrial quolas. Pressler and Kasten used recenl government studies to back up the request for the quota reduction. Firing up Learning to fire with flint and sleel was one of several aclivilies fealured al scouting night Thursday at Luther L. Wright High School. Other activities were knot tying, backpacking and first aid. Twenty four boys along with parents attended the "Join theScouts" night.

The meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the com- mission chambers at the Ironwood Memorial Building. A mobile home ordinance.and the sale of surplus 'property may also be discussed. Mikulich said he is not seeking another vole on the Copper Grove Estates project hul instead is looking for a concensus of opinion on what direction the city should take in pursuing future housing develop- ment Mikulich nolcd all Ihree groups concern themselves with housing matters and each group had dif- ferent opinions on the low and moderate income housing project. According lo Mikulich, the planning commission unanimously endorsed Ihe projecl. The. cily commission split 3-3 on Uie issue at a meeting Sept. 14 and the housing commission opposed Ihe project on a 3-2 vole al a Sept. 10 meeting. The main point of contention seems to be the consolidation of units, although questions regarding (he need of such housing have also been raised. Housing commissioners cited Ihe consolidalion factor in Iheir vole against the project saying it (the consolidalion) would nol be in the besl interests of Ihe prospective tenants or the cily of Ironwood. Cily commissioner William Kleinbrook, who is also on the housing commission, mentioned Ihe scattered site concept when he voted against the zoning resolution at the city commission meeting. At that meeting, Kleinbrook said he liked the scatlered sile idea. "Possibly if this project was laid out on six different sites throughout the cily, il would be a beller he said.
