(API — President Ford sat in a chair beside former President Richard M. Nixon's hospital bed on Friday. “Did you have a good night?” Ford asked. “None of my nights are too good,” Nixon replied in a husky voice. His hair was mussed and his face was drawn. He was thinner than most people remember him. Nixon's passion while in office was foreign affairs, and Ford told him of plans in the near future for presidential trips to Japan, South Korea and the Soviet Union. He told Nixon — he called him Dick — of tours by Nixon's favorite. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger, to the Soviet Union, India, Pakistan and Afghanistan. The visit was a surprise to Surtax Compromise Reported Likely By R. GREGORY NOKES Associated Press writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Ford administration has nearly given up all hope of getting its 5 per cent surtax proposal approved by Congress in its present form, .informed administration SSSt&mHJT Although Treasury Secretary William E. Simon said Thursday the administration has “just begun to fight” in Iniversity Status Means Much o Howard Payne President By JERRY REED ■ porter-News Staff Writer HOWNWOOD—The desig-on “university” for the nor Howard Payne College b is not just a matter of italics for HPU’i presi-t, Dr. Roger L. Brooks. Raining university status is rely one step of many in king the small Brownwood ominational school “one of top universities in the ii” by 1989, HPU’s corneal year, he said. Iniversity ranking is more n just a name change to Brooks, who was inaugu-ed little more than a year > as Howard Payne’s 14th ‘UNIVERSITY.” he said defines a “broad-based and multi-school institution."’ The word “college,” Dr. Brooks said, has been appropriated by beauty, barber and business schools and two-year community colleges which leave out the distinguishing adjective “junior.” Since Howard Payne officials and regents decided on attaining university status about two years ago, the institution has undergone a critical self-review and upgrading of faculty and students. “We determined a year ago that most of our student problems (academic, disciplinary, See BROOKS, Pg. 12A, Col. 6 WmSm DR.

T hey believe the surtax has been misunderstood as being far more costly to middle and upper incomaUajywifitiUUian it really is, but tMy db not believe this misunderstanding can be dispelled. A likely compromise —in the view of several sources who did not want to be named —is an increase to $25,000 in the minimum level of family income to which the surtax would apply. The Ford proposal calls for the surtax to apply to family incomes over $15,000 and individual incomes over $7,500. But the sources said they expect changes will be made in the House Ways and Means Committee, after which the administration would judge whether they are acceptable. House Speaker Carl Albert. D-Okla.. has declared that the Ford surtax will not emerge from committee in its present form. And an informed administration ally —the minority counsel of a key Senate committee — said chances are slim for a surtax, even with a compromise. “It has no chance — 5 per cent at best —of going through Congress as an indi vidual component and maybe a 20 per cent chance for some form of the surtax being passed with a decent type of package,” this source said. Such a package, he said, would include other Ford proposals —bud#at<«!rta.-* public service employment program, along with reform of government regulatory agencies and regulations. He said the very best chance for a compromise surtax would be about 30 to 35 per cent if the Ford program were suddenly widely perceived as being a real answer to inflation —something that is not now the case. Among those who have publicly hinted at a possible compromise has been presidential counselor L. William Seidman, who has said the Ford administration is willing to consider a 11 suggestions emanating from the Congress on the surtax. Asked if the surtax proposal remained realistic in view of congressional opposition — largely based on the contention that the surtax is another blow at an already suffering middle class — one Treasury official indicated mixed feelings. > that season SBUUCK«*“    ~    SBWM8W" Nixon. Fearing any sustained excitement might be too much for their still seriously ill patient, doctors told Nixon that Ford was coming only minutes before the President walked through the door of Nixon's top-floor suite. It was the first meeting be tween the men since Nixon resigned the presidency Aug. 9. After the visit, Mrs. Nixon was heard by a Ford aide telling presidential physician William Lukash, who accompanied Ford to the hospital, that See KORD, Pg.
