Raaf and Keith E. Voelker of the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh Economics Department and co-editors of Area Economic Indicators. "Despite some possible weak the economists reported, "the Fond du Lac economy remained relatively stable during August. "Although employment data for the month is unavailable, reports of layoffc by several firms could indicate rising levels of unemployment and possible declines in employ- Raat and Voelker stated. The economists noted that average weekly earnings in manufacturing rose probably due to increases in hourly wage rates by several area firms. The reports stated that commercial and industrial power use remained at the same level as August 1973; and although bank debits dropped slightly during the month, they were still well above the same month last year. "The number of new resi- dential building permits for the first eight months of the year was lower than for the same period of Raaf and Voelker reported. "This reflects primarily the general decline in construction which has occured1 in the country as a whole." The economists also reported that postal receipts during August were higher than during August 1973, and that large store retail sales recorded a seasonal increase. Based on the monthly average for 1971 as equalling 100 points, the economic indicators for the Fond du Lac area, with the first figure being for August of this year, the second for July of this year and the third for August 1973, are as follows: Average weekly earnings in manufacturing, 129, 121 and 122.4; commercial and indus- trial power use, 120.9, 122.6 and 113.4; large store retail sales, 144.2, 116.4 and 137.6; postal receipts, 108.7, 106.1 and 101.1; and bank debits, 203.1, 198.9 and 135.7. According to Raaf and Voelker, total employment, m anufacturing employment and the unemployment rate were not available for the August report because the figures are only reported on an every-other-month basis.

Agriculture officials said Fri- day that the White House or- dered the department to assist the farmers who want to donate the meat. A spokesman for the Agency for International Devel- opment said the agency would handle shipment. Last Tuesday, members of the National Farm Organ- ization slaughtered and feuried 658 calves in south-central Wis- consin in a price protest dem- onstration. The action has been criticized by cattlemen's groups. "Responsible beef cattlemen are taking action today to sus- tain the cattle industry, not kill said Charlie T. Lee, presi- dent of the New Mexico Cattle Growers Association. He said calf-killing farmers are giving the cattle industry a bad name and criticized the "group of people who have relied on the federal govern- ment to wipe their noses and keep their houses in order." Harold B. Steele, president of the Illinois Farm Bureau, said, "As a livestock farmer myself, I cannot accept such a heart- less means of calling attention to the current financial crisis faced by livestock producers in this country." The board of directors of the American National Cattlemen's Association said positive steps should be taken to help correct the supply situation and the cost-price imbalance. "We recognize the right of producers to dispose of their own said association president Gordon Van Vleck. "However, we deplore the kill- ing of cattle as a dramatization of the current crisis in the cattle industry." A Brazilian newspaper called the Wisconsin slaughter uncivi- lized. "There could foe no better il- lustration to demonstrate how man can at times lose the ve- neer of his rationality to reveal the brute matter he carries just below his 0 Globo wrote. Jim Runde, treasurer of the Wisconsin NFO and the man who organized the plan to do- nate calves to Honduras rather than kill and bury them, said Friday: "Let's set the record straight. Over half of those farmers at Curtiss had! tears in their eyes while they were killing those calves. It's a shame when you take inventory at the end of the year and find cattle are worth less than they were the year before." Free press gets Ford's tribute ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) Campaigning in the Carolinas and Kentucky for Republican candidates who can "cut the President Ford took a breather from politics here today to pay tribute to the na- tion's free press. Ford's only nonpolitical ap- pearance of a six-stop tour was to dedicate the 22-month-old headquarters of the Anderson Independent and The Daily Mail. In his prepared text, Ford said: "It is not the func- tion of the press to propagan- dize for any party, any presi- dent, or any section of the pub- lic. You call things as you see them."

"I'm not opposed to anyone becoming a member of the Fire Department as long as stand- ante are not said Jo- seph Rudytis, president of Lo- cal 215, Milwaukee Fire Fight- ers Association. "Once you start towering standards you are going to have problems' in this city." Under the plan, 40 per cent of the Fire Department's appoint- ments from new applicants must be either women or mi- nority group members. Rudytis said he believes the compromise, issued in a decree by U.S. District Judge John Reynolds week after (he Justice, Department filed a complaint, reverse discrimination. The ultimate goal of the agreement is to have 14 per cent of the department person- nel mwontief. ferent kind of he said he looks upon each one as an individual and said, "al- though I have had a lot of ad- versaries in my political life, I have no list of enemies. -Nor will I ever have." Ford said he naturally did not enjoy being the press but criticized asserted, by would be even more concerned if the press were not free to criticize.' Ford said he would try to continue the pleasant relation- ship with the press that he en- joyed as vice president and throughout 25 years in Con- gress, but he added: "I do not put as much em- phasis on public relations as I do on fundamental human rela- tions. We can all disagree with- out being disagreeable" Appearing before an airport crowd of several thousand ear- lier in Greenville, Ford caUed for the election of Republican senate and house candidates who will "cut red tape, out the budget and, in effect, cut the mustard." Appearing with Sen. Strom Thurmond, R-S.C, and the state's major GOP vote seekers, Ford said the men and women he was endorsing were "trying to give you competiiton" in pol- itics. In most of his campaign ap- pearances, the President has pointed to polls indicating a dim Republican prospect in the November balloting and called for preservation of the two-par- ty system. Ford left the Greenville air- port via helicopter at a.m. en route to Anderson for-the second leg of his South Carolina tour. He was afso to visit Rock S.C., Greensboro, N.C., and Louisville, Ky. The President left Washing- ton early today for what was to be-a 16-hour campaign tour. He took off from nearby An- drews Air Force base at a.m. EOT in Air Force One, the presidential jet.

A rough calculation showed that would add at least another to his tax bit. In the letters, Rockefeller said the audits required him to jay an additional in federal income taxes and an additional in federal gift taxes, virtually all of it because of the disallowed deductions'. That compared with the 787 in back incomes taxes, plus in interest, that former President Richard M. Nixon had to pay when Kfee IRS au- dited his tax returns earlier this year. The principal Items dis- allowed by Che IRS were 598 in deductions for office and investment expenses, and 649 in deductions for charitable contributions, largely relating to unreimfoursed expenses of a 1970 trip Rockefeller took to Latin America for the Nixon administration. There was no indication of the specifics of the deductions disallowed by the IRS. There also was no indication of any illegality. Rockefeller said ittoat at time he submitted the figures to the two committees, federal tax audits were in process for 1969, 1970 and 1971, and had not yet begun for 1972 and 1973. Through intensive work by the Internal Revenue Service, these audits have now been completed and have resulted In adjustments, as in the Rockefeller said. When he submitted hit tax records to the Senate com- mittee and stunmaarazed 'them in a lengthy opening statement Sept. 23, Rockefeller gave no indicaition the figures were sub- ject to further audit. The additional (taxes Include in federal income taxes for 1970, a year in which pre- viously he had not paid any federal income itax though he did pay in total federal, state and local flaxes. Rockefeller had said he didn't owe federal income taxes (hat year because of changes the investments held by the two trusts that provide the bulk of his income. The two trusts paid more than miUion in capital gains texes thai year, however.
