The board asked for the presidential appeal to be followed by action empower- ing a federal agency to set maximum cigarette tar and nicotine levels. These levels would steadily be lowered year by year Spokesmen for the tobacco industry have said in the past the industry is opposed to any federal regulation of cigarette tar and nicotine levels. No such regulation exists, although the Federal Trade Commission publishes reports of tar and nicotine levels in cigarettes. The cancer advisory board's recommendations to Ford came in response to the president's Oct 23 request for an assessment of scientific evidence that would provide a basis for federal cigarette regulation. In its assessment the cancer advisory board cited numerous studies in humans that the board said showed a dose-response relationship between the number of cigarettes smoked and lung cancer.

Mr. Thurston said he was willing to pay a reward for the return of the weapons. He said he began collecting "partly because I could use the guns to illustrate certain points in history." He would bring around groups of male pupils girls would only to his home for a viewing and description. "I would put the weapons in context, and it gave history a solid feel." Chinese paper says Soviets are suffering TOKYO (AP) An article in China's leading newspaper claimed Saturday that the So- viet people are experiencing "untold suffering" because Moscow spends too much on arms and too little on con- sumer goods.
