Ogden Standard-Examiner (Newspaper) - January 26, 1976, Ogden, Utah Briefs: Accord Reached in Pittsburgh Teacher Strike PITTSBURGH (AP) The city teachers union, on strike for 57 days, reached tentative contract agreement with the school board early today. Teachers met for a ratification vote and the school board made plans to re-open classes Tuesday. Union officials said they would recommend ratification, but discussion of the contract and voting by written ballot were expected to take most of the day. When the tentative pact was announced, the board said it hoped to re-open school later today if the pact was ratified. The two-year pact was agreed on at at an all-night bargaining session. Some members are eligible to vote on ratification. Details of the settlement were not immediately an- nounced, but a break in the talks apparently came after agreement was reached on how to distribute a reported million wage package over the life cf the contract. Other crucial bargaining points such as class size, job security, discipline and reading skills were also ap- parently settled. WASHINGTON (UPI) President Ford is considering visiting the Middle East in late April to demonstrate continuing U.S. determination to achieve a peace settlement there. A senior official aboard Secretary of State Henry Kissinger's flight from Europe Sunday said there is a "50-50 chance" the President will visit Israel, Egypt, Saudi Arabia ana several other Middle East countries this spring. Kissinger met with Ford shortly after returning from a w e e k 1 o n g mission to Copenhagen, Moscow, NATO headquarters in Brussels, and Spain, to discuss his trip and begin mapping U.S. Middle East diplomacy following today's anticipated vote in the U.N. Security Council. WASHINGTON (UPI) State Department in- vestigators say the Pentagon's military aid program cannot account for million in equipment ordered for other countries but never delivered. Pentagon officials say the mistakes were not deliberate and the problem is being solved, but Rep. Les Aspin, D- Wis., who released a report by the State Department inspector general for foreign assistance, called it "a stinging indictment of sloppy management by the military." A special accounting pro- cedure has been set up "for weapons which are actually owned by the military assist- ance program because they were ordered for other coun- tries but never delivered. ATHENS, .Greece The Balkan conference of cooperation opened in the Greek capital today with the participation of five nations from NATO, the Wasaw Pact and nonaligned blocs. All participants hailed the conference as "the first practical application of the Helsinki spirit but their willingness to cooperate and predictions for its success varied. The conference will search for possible means of joint cooperation in mutually beneficial projects, such as energy, waterway ex- ploitation, transport and communications, tourism, trade and industry. It is hoped that success in such areas will create a healthier political climate in the Balkans, a traditionally troubled region. OAKLAND, Calif.

BOSTON (AP) Boston schools opened without in- cident this morning, but things were a bit slow at Hyde Park High School which was reopening with increased police security. Processing of pupils into Hyde Park High, was slowed because they had to line up, pass through metal detectors, then turn out the contents of pockets and purses to make sure no weapons got into the school. The school is one of several in Boston affected by a court-ordered desegration plan using busing.

Bill to End Tax Clears Senate Gives OK To Liquor Revamp By PETER GILLINS SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) The Utah House of Representatives today passed and sent to the governor a bill eliminating the sales tax on prescription drugs. The measure, which cleared the Senate last week, was approved in the House on a 57-14 vote and would reduce state tax revenue by about million annually. "This bill will effect only a small part of the population, but they are the ones who need it the said Sen. Donald Brooke, D-Salt Lake, chief sponsor of the meas- ure. "It is wrong to tax people because they are sick." Gov. Calvin L. Rampton had called for repeal of the tax in his budget message. The bill passed without amendment following an hour of debate and a Republi- can party caucus. The Senate passed bills today which would revamp the State Liquor Control Commission and permit the state's medical profession to weed out incompetent doc- tors. The much-debated bill placing the state's mil- lion a year liquor business under the direction of a sin- gle director advised by a five-member, part-time commis- sion was sent to the House on a 23-4 vote. Sen. Dean Jeffs, R-Orem, sponsored the bill which would replace the current full-time, three-member com- mission. The bill was recommended by the Citizens Council on Liquor Control and opposed, by the cur- rent commissioners Gerald E. Hulbert, Ernest Dur- bano and Richard P.

The court reversed a federal appeals court and restated its view that arrests can be made without warrants when there is clear cause for the action. If the officer reads the suspect his rights, then the mere fact the person is in custody does not constitute 'coercion" to search for evidence, the court ruled. PICKED UP The case involved Henry Ogle Watson, convicted of possessing two stolen credit cards. He was arrested without a warrant in a restaurant when a government informant told federal officers Watson had the cards in his possession. Watson was told his rights and was searched. With his permission, his automobile was searched and an officer found two credit cards under the floor mat. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed his conviction on grounds the prosecutors had plenty of time to get a warrant to arrest him. Taking him into custody without a warrant violated his constitutional rights, the appeals court ruled. The lower court said because Watson's arrest was illegal, his permission for the car search was invalidated. The Supreme Court, in a majority opinion by Justice Byron R. White, said previous cases have established that "a police officer may arrest without warrant one believed by the officer upon reasonable cause to have been guilty of a felony." TOOK NO PART Justices Thurgood Marshall and Justice William J. Brennan dissented, and Justice John Paul Stevens took no part because he did not hear arguments in the case. The court had been scheduled to start its mid-term recess following today's actions but, without explanation, scheduled a session next Monday. In brief orders today, the court: Let stand rulings that Indian tribes in western Wash- ington state are exempt from most state regulation of salmon and trout fishing. Rejected a challenge to the federal ban on import and distribution of laetrile, a drug believed by some to be effective against cancer. Dismissed as not posing a federal question a challenge to Tennessee's property tax laws, which assess apartments at higher rates than single-family rental homes. South African Forces Pulled Out of Angola LUSAKA, Zambia (UPI) South Africa was reported today to have completed withdrawing its troops from the Angolan civil war front and pro-Western troops established a final "fight to the death" defense line to block an expected armored and air offensive against their capital, Huamfoo. Dr. Jonas Savimbi, leader of the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola, was quoted by reporters returning from Angola as saying the estimated South African troops on the Southern front had completed a full and orderly withdrawal Friday two days after receiving orders from their government to pull out. STILL ON DEFENSE Though they had pulled back from the front itself the South Africans, with their artillery and armored cars, did not leave Angola completely, the reporters said. They retreated to the border area with South West Africa (Namibia) where they were still defending the vital Cunene dam just inside the Angolan border, they said.
