(Pho- to by staff photographer) to Adopt Spen Blow to PresiA MANITOWOC Failure of the adjourned 92nd Congress to adopt expenditure ceilings was "a serious blow" to Nixon's program on reducing federal spending. The observation was made Friday morning by Congress- man William A. Steiger of Osh- kosh, Sixth District represent- ative, in discussing "Matters Facing Congress" at a break- fast at Memorial Hospital. The occasion was the monthly morning meeting of the Legisla- tive Committee of the Mamto- woc-Two Rivers Chamber of Commerce which was hosted by Memorial Hospital. Unlike the state legislature, Steiger, who was guest speaker at the Chamber committee meeting, attended by numerous members, said that the "record GM Workers on Strike JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) Some workers at the Gen- eral Motors assembly plant in Janesvffle walked off their jobs this morning in a dispute over an alleged production speedup. Negotiations had continued until shortly before the 9 a.m. strike deadline, but they failed to reach agreement between the giant automaker and Local 95 of the United Auto Workers. Company spokesmen said picket lines were immediately set up around the plant which employs about persons. It was expected that the strike would completely stop oper- ations at the plant. The spokesmen said there had been progress in negotia- of Congress is not very good on federal spending, because it cannot take a look on the overall picture." Sees Passage Presiding over the meeting was Chairman Robert W. Suet- tinger, who expressed the ap- preciation of the committee to the Memorial Hospital for host- ing the event. Edward'T. Lyon, hospital administrator, in re- sponse, said that the_instiiution is a member of the Chamber and was happy to be host. The speaker emphasized that there should be some form of a legislative budget in Congress, which, he said, was attempted in 1948 but met with failure. He added that in the 93rd Congress, convening in January, efforts will be made to gain a uniform budget to do a better job hi eon- trolling expenditures. Spending Rate Too High "We cannot spend at the rate we are Steiger said, "without facing serious conse- quences. tions over grievances and agreement had been reached on several of the issues before the strike deadline was reached. ions PHILADELPHIA (AP) President Nixon said today the new billion revenue shar- ing bill launched a "new ican revolution'' that could pro- vide desperately needed tax re- lief for millions of people and revitalize grassroots govern- ments. Nixon said he picked Phila- delphia, the city where the na- tion was founded in another resolution, for the signing of this bill, because it carries on the work begun there and is "a new Declaration of Independ- ence for state and local govern- ments." Nixon helicoptered to Phila- delphia for signing ceremonies at Independence Hall, and noted that failure Lo pass the Highway Bill in the recently ended session could have a marked impact on high- ways in the state, chiefly 1-57 from Milwaukee to Green Bay, adding that the proposed iegis-___ lation was "reasonably good." 1970. He said that he hoped the next Congress would adopt the bill. The speaker in relating to the failure of Congress to pass tie Housing Bill, admitted that the legislation faced considerable disaffection among the mem- bership. Federal housing pro- grams, such as 235 and 236, he said, require improvement, since there have been numerous complaints of inequities. Early Action Viewed Left undone, Steiger recalled, was action on the minimum wage bill in the past session, marked by differences between the House and the Senate. This bill, he said, will be high on the list in the January session. "Congress desperately needs the guidance of the the speaker maintained. "It takes people like your Chamber Le- gislative Committee to helo and study proposed legislation." A period for questions and an- swers followed, conducted by Chairman Suettinger, in which Steiger offered his opinion on numerous congressional mat- t e r s Considerable discussion followed on what was said to be advantages and' disadvantages of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (SHA) adopted National, State Impact of Carf Service Is 2 WASHINGTON (AP) A member of the Michigan Public Service Commission said Thursday, "The question of carferry service across Lake Michigan is a matter of nation- al as well as state signifi- cance." Commissioner William Rails of Okemos called on the federal government to join with Mich- igan and Wisconsin in efforts to preserve the railroad service across the lake. If the railroad car ferry routes presently going across Lake Michigan are abandoned and traffic is diverted around Chicago, it will have a devas- tating impact on rail service in the northern part of Michigan's lower he said. Large Interest "At the same time, it will have a significant detrimental impact on our nation's transportation system. Therefore, the federal govern- ment has as large an interest igan Public Service Commis- sion and the state attorney gen- eral were successful in their ef- forts to prevent the C 0 and Ann Arbor railroads from aban- doning two carferry routes across Lake Michigan. The C 0 had sought author- ity to discontinue service from Ludington to Kewaunee, Wis. and the Ann Arbor RR wanted to abandon its Frankfort, Mich. ferry to Manitowoc, Wis. route. Both 'applications were denied by the ICC. "However, there is presently pending before the ICC an ap- plication by the Ann Arbor to abandon its land route from. Thompsonville to Frankfort and its carferry service between Frankfort and Manitowoc and Frankfort and he said. IF YOU HAVE BARGAINS Hint Partial Cease-Fire Discussed Kissinger Stays on for More Meetings Stumbling Block Is Refusal of Thieu to Resign SAIGON CAP) Henry A. Kissinger and President Ngu- yen Van Thieu conferred for nearly four hours today amid reports that a partial cease-fire was being discussed. It was the third meeting in :wo days between President Nixon's chief foreign policy ad- viser and the leader of tlie Sai- gon government. There was no immediate word on Kissinger's next move, jut some sources indicated he would remain in Saigon at least through Saturday and most likely would see Thieu again. Kissinger was accompanied to the meeting today by U.S. Ambassador Ellsworth Bunker, Deputy Ambassador Charles S. and Gen. Creighton W. Abrams, the U.S. Army chief of staff. 'Good Will' South Vietnamese sources who reported that a cease-fire jroposal was figuring in the :alks said it probably called for only a partial truce as a "good will" gesture that could lead to further agreements. "It is impossible to have any :ease-fire that could be en- brced, even by international said one South Vietna- mese official. "It might mean an end to bombing and mining of the North and perhaps an ex- change of prisoners, but It would be impossible to guaran- ;ee any kind of a cease-fire in the South' where- the fightinjr is going on." The chief stumbling block to cease-fire agreement has 3een Thieu's rejection of the Communist condition that he resign and give way to a three- faction coalition government in- cluding the Communists. There has been widespread speculation that Kissinger is rying to persuade Thieu to step down, and the South Vietnamese information minis- try in a communique Thursday said the president had renewed his vow "never to accept" a coalition regime. Refuse Invitation A number of Thieu's political opponents refused an invitation :q meet with him Thursday night to discuss the current status of the peace effort "Many of us feel that Thieu s trying to create a myth about opposition to a tripartite government said one political foe of the president ''We feel he is only pretending o ask for opinions to strength- m his position. We are not wil- ling to be used for such propa- ganda, so we have refused to meet with him." us. TRUCK-TRAIN CRASH A workman for Meinerz Creamery, New Berlin, loads an auxiliary, refriger- ated truck following the collision of another com- pany truck, left, with a Milwaukee Road freight train near the National Northwoods Inc. plant in New Holstein at 4 p.m. Thursday.

Nixon was flying to Phila- delphia today to sign the billion revenue-sharing bill, which will send federal funds to states, cities and other commu- nities over the next five years. The trip is billed as nonpolitic- al. WASHINGTON (AP) Wis- consin ranks as one of the na- tion's highest taxed states in virtually every category includ- ed in a U.S. Commerce Depart- ment report Thursday, largely because it receives less than its share of federal aid. The report, based on the 1970- 71 fiscal year, showed Wiscon- sin behind only Vermont in total state and local tax collec- tions per of personal in- come. Only South Dakota, Califor- nia, Montana and Wyoming were listed ahead of Wisconsin in total property taxes per 000 income. Wisconsin also ranked sev- enth in total taxation per capita and eighth in property taxes per capita. At the same time, charts showed Wisconsin ranked fourth from the bottom in amount of federal aid per of Dersonal income. The figures were used by the Nixon administration in deter- mining revenue sharing dis- tribution. Wisconsin's place near the ton of the tax charts led to an above average share of federal revenue to be dis- tributed this year. The report also dealt with state spending and showed Wis- 'consin behind only Alaska money spent per person highways. in on Wisconsin was listed near the top in spending ner person on institutions of higher learning, but below the national average in spending for public welfare, hepith and police and fire pro- tection.
