lease on life Tuesday afternoon when the Wood County Board voted to continue the program another year or until federal funds run out The vote in favor of the program was one more than on the resolution originally establishing the service in January Although the resolution to continue the Family Planning Service was amended the apparently will have little effect upon the program's operation by Thomas Reddin of Wisconsin Rapids the amendment provides that there will be an absolute prohibition against any information or counseling that would suggest or advise there be or abortion Backers of the service have long argued that the service docs not promote either sterilization or but in attempts to kill the program opponents have hammered at the theme that the county's contract with the state for the service does not prohibit these acts A second resolution by the Health Committee authored by Robert Braun of Wisconsin Rapids never received con- sideration due lo the fact that it had not been approved by i of committee members Braun's resolution would have rescinded the original resolution establishing the program and terminated it An earlier attempt to amend the resolution by Anthony Ruesch of Vesper was defeated Ruesch had asked that only education about family planning be provided but not con- counselling o r fertility studies or medical services The vote on the measure was taken after those favoring and opposing the program each allowed 15 minutes to present their cases with three persons on each side given five minutes apiece Speaking for family planning were Mrs Helen Casper of Wisconsin Rapids president of the League of Women Voters of the Wisconsin Rapids Area Dr John Schaller of Wisconsin Rapids and Mrs Katherine THE DAILY Young of Marshfield

Ronald L Ziegler said ger who will be making his third trip to Communist China is expected to meet with Pre- mier Chou and top of the Foreign Ministry in Peking probes Flabby dumb LOS ANGELES AP President Nixon's domestic affairs adviser says one reason the President has few news conferences is that newsmen ask dumb question He doesn't get very good questions at a press conference said John D Ehrlichmann He goes in there for a half hour and gels a lot of flabby and fairly dumb questions and it doesn't really elucidate very much I've seen him many times come off one of those things and go back in and say Isn't it extraordinary how poor the quality of the questions Asked during an interview taped Tuesday for showing on television Saturday why Nixon has had only one news ence this year he said He's been very busy and he with the American people in a lot of different ways In a typical news conference Ehrlichmann said You have 300 people lumping up and yelling Mr and all that kind of thing and it just isn't a very useful way of cating with the American people I think some of them may be preoccupied with their own interests or their bureaus may have fed them things that they're asked to ask but the long and short of it is that you don't get very much out of it It seems to me a great deal more could be developed as interesting news and valuable for the people out of a one

questions are flabby and dumb I would expect all inter- national questions will be dis- Ziegler said adding that both sides will be free to raise any topic Kissinger is expected to leave Thursday

plans Controversy over the proposed construction of 50 housing units for low-income families in Wisconsin Rapids flared up at Tuesday night's Common Council meeting F o u r t li Ward Alderman Clarence accused Department of Housing and Urban HUD of economic blackmail HUD us in effect that the only way we could obtain funds for units of housing for elderly would be to include plans for units of income family housing in same he said a former Housing Authority chairman wild that while he's not opposed the idea of low-income housing he is opposed lo the I believe thai If we need them private developers should woik directly with HUD He explained that by following this course HUD would pay the difference ween what the low-income families were able to pay and the total rent on the housing Then the owners of housing would have to pay the complete tax on the buildings bringing an estimated in revenue into the city coffers annually James 5th Ward alderman presented petitions bearing the signatures of 100 residents of his ward calling for the restriction of low-income homes to one per block or no closer than 500 feel apart Mayor Donald explained that the Housing Authority was very

elderly bul we had to go for the low-income family housing lo get it We are concerned about the he said bul I'm sure f the people who would be affected by the low-income family housing wanted to petitions they could get as many if not more names on them We have lo be concerned about people regardless of their income said that the petitions presented would unreasonably bind the program which must have flexibility lo be effective He added that he couldn't sny exactly where the units would he located because the Authority itself doesn't know ycl We don't want to bunch them up five or 10

assignment is an assignment so curiosity netted this hound a few hours cf pleasure A visit to Ziegler's Under the Apple Tree Lapidary proved Bernie's loquaciousness and a copy of the May issue of

United States Ruckelshaus made the ban effective Dec 31 1972 to allow a transition to substitute Under his order the use of DDT will be permitted in this country only for public health purposes and in three minor uses to protect crops where no effective alternatives are is on green peppers onions and sweet potatoes in storage All remaining crop uses of on cotton nuts and be banned An attorney for formulators of DDT products immediately asked a federal appeals court to set aside the Ruckelshaus der The attorney Robert L erly said the brief appeal pre- pared in anticipation of the de- was filed by his agent with the U.S 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans 30 seconds after the order was re- leased to newsmen in ton Ruckelshaus decision was based on a study by EPA on the effects of the ly used chemical The long-awaited decision gave environmental groups a victory in one of their earliest and toughest battles that began with the publication of the late Rachel Carson's book Silent Spring Although DDT became a worldwide weapon against in- sects in the years following World War II Miss Carson warned that it was spreading and persisting in the ment Other environmentalists soon began campaigning against the pesticide In a decision I am convinced by a preponderance of the dence that once used DDT is an uncontrollable durable chemical that persists in the aquatic and terrestrial ments The evidence of record showing storage in man and magnification in the food chain is a warning to the prudent that man may be exposing himself to a substance that may ulti- mately have a serious effect on his health DDT still is widely used abroad for malaria control and crop protection and the order does not prohibit DDT export from the United States Ruckelshaus said its likely substitute in this country for most crop uses is thion a chemical which is ly toxic but which breaks up rapidly and therefore does not build up in the environment as DDT does He said its safe use will require special training of workers for its application The order was released while Ruckelshaus was in Stockholm Sweden attending the United National Conference on the man Environment EPA said he signed the order June banning general use of DDT effective at the end of this year The heated debate over its safety has raged for years 2 Port board OKs liquor sales A policy to grant Class A
