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.

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.

Florida VALENCIA ORANGES Love For Tat' Money Comes To An End By JOHN VINOCUR REYKJAVIK, Iceland (AP) How Iceland stopped worry ing and learned to love 32.2 per cent inflation was a true story that bas come to an abrupt end. The inflation rate here highest of any country with a democratically elected govern ment, according to the Organ ization for Economic Coopers tion and Development OECD brought down the left-of center government and resultet in the calling of new elections for June 30. The election is coming even though some people said they had gotten used to and even liked the inflation, which fully three times that of the 10.4 per cent annual rate recorded by the OECD for the United States. "It looks intolerable, but said an Icelandic busi nessman, who asked not to be identified. "Everybody caugh on to the idea that the only way to beat the system was to be up to your neck in debt" This was possible because the strong Icelandic trade union had won accords providing far wages to be recalculated every three months to correspond ex actly to increases in the cost oi living. And while economists were predicting a 40 per cen inflation rate by 1974, they were the end o also saying wages would rise by 60 per cent. "The the businessman explained, "is to buy anything house, a car, a vacation- on borrowed money. When your wages go up you can pay i back, probably breaking even and perhaps making a little something. I'm living damn well." Inflation is built into Icelan die life because virtually all its manufactured a sub stantial part of its food must be imported. There is no unem ployment and the standard o living of the country's citizens the yearly per capita income is compared U in the United high. Just like the prices. A T-shirt that might not pass muster foi elegance in a coal mine costs a new Volkswagen 000, a pack of cigarettes Sl.ft and a bottle of whisky On a single day in late May, the back page of Reykjavik's 37-cent-per-copy morning news- paper carried government ad- ministered price increases like baseball scores. Liquor and to- bacco were up 15 per cent anc electricity 38 per cent Whole wheat bread was going up 26 per cent to 61 cents a loaf and gasoline was rising to a gallon, an increase of about 40 per for the year. But this spring the spiral be- came tougher to manage Prices on fish exports to the United States, which rose last year by 66 per cent as Iceland's jig foreign exchange earner, flattened out Fuel was up and strikes slowed production. As a result, Prime Minister Olafur Kenton Hosts Legion's Meet KENTON The summer con- ention of the American I egion's 2nd district will be held rcre Sunday, hosted by Kenton Post 198. The day's activities will begin at a.m. with a breakfast "or the Past Commanders Asso- :iation. The business meeting, in the courthouse auditorium, will begin at a.m. A parade through the down- town srea is slated to begin at p.m. Kalida lions Plan Barbecue KALIDA A chicken barbe- cue to raise funds for construc- tion of new tennis courts in the community park is being spon- sored by the Kalida Lion's dub June 10. The barbecued chicken din- ners will be served from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. Monday at Dick's Restaurant LEGAL NOTICE Johannesson proposed a wage- price freeze, compulsory sav- ings, cuts in government ex- penditures and a 'roll-back on wage increases granted earlier in the year. When the Left Liberal party, which participated in the lett- of-center government coalition with Johannesson's Progressive party and the Communist-ori- ented People's Alliance, said it could not accept the prime min- ister's economic policy, he dis- solved parliament May 9 and called new elections. In the meanwhile, the eco- nomic measures took effect, in- cluding a 4 per cent deval- uation of the Icelandic kronur, subsidized food prices and im- port controls requiring 25 per cent deposits with the central bank on all goods brought into the country. "That's fine if it brings down the price of a secre- tary said, "but what good is it if they announce an increase in the price of bread a day later." Wages and prices are, of course, the paramount issue in the election campaign, but no party promises they can end or drastically curtail inflation. Even the Communists make no such claim. "We've been living with this situation since World War II Magnus Kjartansson, the Communist minister of in- dustry in the outgoing govern- ment, said in an interview. "Because of our particular geo- graphic situation we had ID pel cent inflation when everybody else had 3 per cent. It is not possible, under the economic system here, to stop inflation if you have full employment. I think most Icelanders would rather have inflation than unemployment." _______ LEGAL NOTICE NOTICE TO BIDDERS Purchase Tractor and for Allen Soil and Water Conservation District The Board of County Commissioners, Allen County Court House.
