U.S. Ambissador George Bush is to hold talks today with Republican Senator Robert Taft of Ohio on the problem. Monday he met conservative Senator James Buckley, who said after the meeting that he and 20 other senators would move immediately for a "dra- matic reduction in American funds to Ihc Uniled Nations should Taiwan be expelled. He denied to reporters that this would in any way be puni- tive. Rather, he said: "It would Trudeau pacifies Ukrainians prisoners WINNIPEG (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau placated Ukrainian Canadians and Irri- lated Manitoba Premier Ed Schreyer during an eight-hour visit here Saturday. The prime minister was re- ceived enthusiastically by dele- polilical prisoners in the Ukraine with Soviet Premier Elexei Kosygin when he visits Canada later this month. Earlier, on an open-line radio program, he accused Mr. Schreyer of playing politics over the question of setting dates for to the Ukrainian Canadian a federal-provincial conference Congress when lie indicated he j on unemployment, and called would discuss the treatment of I (he national New Democratic empire dynasty marked j j PERSEPOL1S, Iran (Renter) The Shah of Iran solemnly paid tribute today to his royal ancestor Cyrus, founder of the Persian empire 2.500 years ago, by placing a wreath at his tomb at Pasargadae, near the site ol this ancient city on the southern Iranian plain.

Later, Mr. Schreyer had only one comment for the prime minister's latest offensive in the two -w e e k -o 1 d spat between them: -'I'll leave it to the public to decide who is the more petu- lant." At the Ukrainian conference, Mr. Trudeau outlined a pro- gram to develop Canada's eth- nic cultures, which he had an- nounced Friday in the Com- mons. But delegates were more im- pressed when he departed from his prepared speech and prom- ised to convey to Mr. Kosygin representations from students who had held a four-day hunger strike to protest treatment of political prisoners in the Ukraine. As result of a meeting with the students before his speech, Mr. Trudeau told delegates at the congress banquet he would make "certain representations" to Mr. Kosygin if he received an agreed-upon letter from the stu- dents suitably outlining their grievances. George Boshyuk of Toronto, a spokesman for tho protesters who ended their hunger strike after meeting the prime minis- ter, said he understood Mr. Tru- deau had agreed to make repre- sentations on an "humanitarian basis" in the case of Valentyn Moroz, an imprisoned Ukrainian intellectual. reflect in our judgment the downgrading of the role of the United Nations which would re- sult from its abandonment of principles in order to allow the entry of Peking on Pekings terms. WOULD RESIST PRESSURE Some sources said they be- lieved the intervention of legis- lators at this time could make the American delegations task more difficult, because no coun- try would want to appear re- sponsive to pressure. A delegation spokesman, Nicholas King, denied that any presure or blackmail was in- volved. H e said congressional figures had the right to express their views, and that their visits to New York in the week before the debate were not initiated by the delegation. The U.S. contributes about one-third of the budget of million for nil UN activities, on the basis of assesments arrived at according to the gross na- tional product of member states. A group of House of Repre- sentatives members is said to be working to revise this for- mula, to make the basis popula- tion rather than GNP. It was not clear how the General As- sembly itself would be per- suaded to modify the long-stand- ing system, especially as such a change would make China, India and Russia the major UN Contibutors.

Little, bald and goggle-eyed, Conklin once earned a week as a frantic, dour-faced cop, taking pratfalls, racing t-ains and wiping creamy pie from his face. "When I look back now, the things I did then scare he once said. "We drove the police car off the end of the Venice, Calif., pier. We dangled at the end of piano wire 50 feet in the air." Other Kops included Hank- Mann; Hcinie Conklin, not a rel- ative; Ford Sterling; Billy Gil- bert; Ed Kennedy and Al St. John. Conklin ran away from his Oskaloosa, Iowa, home when he was 11, set on being an enter- tainer. His father had wanted him to be a minister. But after an au- dience applauded him at a childhood comic recital, he said he decided that "I just wanted to make people laugh."
