He said he would not recom- mend that families who now have cyclamate-containing foods and drinks in their homes throw them away or stop using them'at the present time. Cyclamates, which Finch esti- mated are a fl-billion annual in- dustry, are found mainly in diet drinks and foods.- They also'are contained in a Vide range' of nondiet foods from bacon' to canned fruits and children's vi- tamins. Finch said he acted after two different laboratories presented evidence this week that cycla- mates'in'very high doses pro- duced bladder cancer in 'rats and mice.

He said the law requires that "any food additive must be re- moved from the market if it has been shown to cause cancer when fed to humans or ani- mals." Several government scientists 'reinforced Finch's statement that at the present time there is on reason to believe cyclamates cause cancer in man.

In his radio address, Nixon said his administration' has sup- ported the Federal Reserve Board "in its policy, of keeping. money hard to; borrow." When too much is borrowed, he said, "this money is sanpiy used to bid prices up higher." Talking to newsmen at the White House earlier, Burns said he anticipated that tight money policies would continue "for tha .present." 'Nixon, claiming notable prog- ress in-the battle against infla- tion, said; "You can'make your plans on the basis that: price rises -are going to be slowed down." OverShooting By GEOBGE ESPEK SAIGON (AP) President Nguyen Van Thieu said today he did not think a shooting incident involving the navy and a Soviet ship would lead'to international tension. No Notes Exchanged At the same time, government officials'said there has been no exchange of notes or so far be- tween South Vietnam and the Soviet Union over the incident Friday off the coast at Da Nang, the country's second larg- est city. Thieu's confirmation of the shooting incident came about the same time the U.S. and South Vietnamese commands in Saigon were brushing' aside newsmen's repeated questions. They apparently wanted to' leave any confirmation to Thieu because of possible internation- al repercussions. 24 hours after the Incident, thereiwas no comment LOWELL, Mass: from the Kremlin. 15-year-old New Hampshire boy, "The vessel was inside -the has Seen' killed; in .what police 12-mile limit BO my navy fired _ believe was a'nU-Md-nm. at Thieu told newsmen, ;dent on tie.

Outdoor Recrejtion Center 282 Main Street, Nashua, N. H. for comment this- morning. The text .of the govemor'i letter Thank you for your answer to the question of the geographic location of Seavey Island. We> are most disturbed by your continued, refusal to render t legal opinion relating to the legal merits of the imposition of an income tax by the State of Maine upon New Hampshire residents employed at the Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Naval Shipyard. Our revest to you outKped briefly some of the distinguish- ing characteristics between those United States Supreme Court cases.which allow such taxation and the case of these New Hampshire residents who, according to the Stale of Maine, are subject to the far, although in fact no benefits from IJie Slate of Maine accrue to them. There are many thousands of Jfew Hampshire residents who will suffer economic loss if this tax is imposed. If New Hamp- shire residents suffer economic loss, then the State of New Hampshire suffers economic loss.' TOs, then, is very much Pie concern of the Governor and Council. You cite RSA as the basis for your refusal to answer our Question. RSA deals with advice to depart- ments and supervision thereof. RSA reads as follows: "The governor and council may, in any action or proceed- ing wherever pending, frep- resent to the attorney-general that he should appear la protect the Merest of the state or of the people. and thereupon it, shall be his duty to appear."
