Lima News, The (Newspaper) - June 5, 1974, Lima, Ohio PAGE B12, THE LIMA NEWS Wednesday, June S, 1974 Reagan Puts Presidential Ambitions 'Between Lines9 By CARL P. LEUBSDORF SEATTLE (AP) Taking full advantage of the presence of hundreds of reporters, Cali- fornia Gov. Ronald Reagan managed two news confer- ences, a speech to a Seattle group and an attack on Sen. Edward M. Kennedy in two days at his last National Gover- nors Conference. Analysis Then, he left for California before the conference closed Wednesday with adoption of the governors' policy positions for the next year. Before he left, he made clear his opposition to the views of a heavy majority of governors fa- voring national health insur- ance, a strong federal land use bill and broad action in the field of campaign reform and governmental ethics. He also left an obvious im- pression of a 1976 presidential candidacy, though he said at Tuesday's news conference "it is far too early" for talk about making the race to have meaning. Reagan added that if it con- tinues a year from now, he will have to "see how widespread is it, how deep it is and does it warrant my making such a de- cision." Reagan, however, carefully avoided testing any of his ideas among his fellow governors. In recent years, he has found him- self in a distinct minority on major policy questions, mainly those of a broader federal role on health or welfare, or for in- creased federal financial help. Too many of the governors want to take "a tin cup" to Washington, he told the news conference. "They talk states rights but they want it both ways." He indicated he would take his "states rights" views to the country in the stepped-up na- tional speaking schedule he plans after his term as gover- nor ends in January. Although he wouldn't say so, the theme also seems certain to be a prime one in any future presi- dential bid. It indicates he is banking on a belief there is more support in the country for his ideas than among his fellow elected officials. None of the governors supported his attach on Kenne- dy's health care legislation, and none backed his criticism of fellow Republican Gov. Tom McCall of Oregon on land use. That may explain Reagan's eagerness to face the press. His Monday session repeated the attack on Kennedy, while the Tuesday meeting began with a statement on land use. The latter meeting also prompted a question of why Reagan, alone among the gov ernors, had scheduled two press conferences. "I was told that there was a request for press avail he replied. "1 thought I was here at your re- quest." Conference officials, however, produced a memorandum dated May 17, noting a call that day from Peter Hannaford of Rea- gan's staff requesting a "news availability" Monday afternoon and adding "they (Reagan's staff) plan to make him avail- able to newsmen again" on Tuesday morning. Kissinger Pledged To Seek Money Assistance To Syria WASHINGTON ;retary of State Hnery A. Kissin- ger says he told Syrian leaders ie would ask Congress for million in foreign aid for Syria --if a disengagement agreement -was reached with Israel. However, no commitments "either implied or expressed" were made to Syria during his 34-day peacemaking trip to the Middle East, Kissinger told the House Foreign Affairs Com- mittee Tuesday. The million, part of billion in economic assistance ..contained in the foreign aid bill, is "a special requirements -fund" for use "to reinforce the peace process" in the Middle East, he said. Kissinger made it clear he felt that U.S. financial aid is es- sential in continuing evolution of Syria and other Arab govern- ments toward moderate pol- icies. The bill sets million for aid to the Middle East, in- cluding Israel, Egypt, Jordan and Syria. In Syria, Foreign Minister Abdul Halim Khaddam pre- dicted that U.S.-Syrian diplo- matic relations will be restored 'very soon." Diplomatic ties were broken off during the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. Asked if Syria'is doing any- thing to prevent Palestinian guerrilla activity against Is- rael, Khaddam replied: "I assure you no Arab gov- ernment is capable of pre- venting the Palestinians from struggling to restore their le- gitimate rights, no matter what Test .Your News Sense Editor's note: How much do you remember about the news of the world?

This appeared to be a refer- ence to American assurances to Israel of support for any repris- als to guerrilla attacks. Meanwhile, Israeli security forces said a terrorist attack was averted by the capture of two Arab guerrillas near t Lebanese border. The pair, both 19, slipped across the border armed with guns, -grenades and explosives, police said. Israel's state radio quoted the two as saying they were ordered to a slaughter" by firing at random on civilians in the Mediterra- nean resort of Nahariya or the port city of Haifa. In Geneva, Israeli and Syrian generals completed details for carrying out the troop dis- engagement agreement signed governments last y their week.

(AP Wirephoto) Thermal Heat Warms Cheaply REYKJAVIK, Iceland (AP) In a country where they leave radiators on all summer, an oil crisis never really goes away for some people but for others it never really exists. For example Gunnar Kris- tiansson figures he'll pay a little more than about a tenth of his salary, to keep his house warm with oil heat this year. The painful thing about it is that Kristiansson is chief engi- neer of Reyjkavik's Heating Service, which has sidestepped the oil shortage by providing ;heap heat to 97 per cent of cheap heat t o97 per cent of this capital's dwellings from natural, underground hot springs. While Kristiansson's fuel bills were going up by about 40 per cent lives in the suburbs and outside the hot springs heating zone the average homeowner in Reykjavik was paying for his 12-month thermal heating bill. Inflation has increased current thermal heating charges about 22 per cent over last year, but the service says savings through the system still represent about a 75 per cent gain over what fuel costs would be. "I've got a Dig house, so I'm paying way over the Kristiansson said. "But when I talked to a visitor from Phila- delphia heating I found charges out his fuel were about double what an Icelander with the same size house would pay for thermal heat here." The hot water comes from boreholes inside the city limits that pump hot water up from springs at depths to feet. There are 14 of the pump- ing stations, which look like wooden fishermen's shacks, for the city of An uncomplicated system of pipes, set up in 1939, then dis- tributes the hot water through- out Reykjavik. There are no boilers in houses, no chimneys and no pollution. Used hot wa- ter is drained' off or recycled. ries; (c) campaign required politica contributions b made through the company.

In the past the House could only pass the bill without amendments or kill the pro- gram. But as a result of this year's open rule numerous and wide-ranging amendments have been promised. The bill would extend the pro- gram for five years. It would continue import quotas for 32 nations, sharply reduce federal payments to growers, make an adjustment to a price objective formula that could increase sugar prices, and increase fed- eral protection of sugar field workers. The proposed quotas for South Africa and Venezuela are especially controversial. With the strong backing of civil rights groups, Rep. Parren Mit- chell, D-Md., will attempt to re- move the quota for South Africa from the bill. Brakes Break At Repair Shop WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn.
