The agriculture department said Tuesday the drug, com- monly used in livestock feed as a growth stimulant, showed up in 12 of 264 calves slaughtered for the consumer veal market. In 11 animals, streptomycin residues were found only in kid- ney tissue. It was in the liver and red meat as well as in the kidneys of the other, officials said. Streptomycin Is among a group of antibiotics used as feed additives in livestock, dairy and poultry production. It helps prevent bacterial and dis- ease development. Although the Food and Drug Administralion allows "toler- ance" amounts of residues in food products for some antibiot- ics, there is none allowed for streptomycin. The department said the findings will be turned over to FDA for "appropriate action" against producers.

The count was in favor, against. In the third vote the con- vention accepted a resolution that went a lot further than the past official position of the parly leaders. To underline the seriousness of Britain's resolve to obtain terms, It bound a Labor government to quit all Brilish paymenst into Market funds and halt all British participa- tion in Market activities pend- ing a settlement. The count was in favor and against. The fourth vote was on a res- olution submitted by the 000-slrmig Amalgamated Engi- neering Union. It called on any future Labor government to withdraw from the Market at once on grounds "that tile Treaty of Rome denies national independence to Ihe British people."
