WASHINGTON (AP)-President Ford vowed Monday night that he will not cower or capitulate to those who would assassinate him, and said Americans are entitled to see their President and shake his hand. Back at the White House, shortly before midnight after a San Francisco visit that ended with a shot fired by a would-be assassin, Ford said if a President cannot go among the people "something has gone wrong in our society . . ;, film liiiiriiiiimitftfffl Sarah Jean Moore -APUserphoto . . .

' City Manager, William V. Donaldson initiated the three-point program producing only minor gripes so city coffers will be in the best possible shape for the beginning of the 1976 fiscal year. THE PROGRAM outlined by sources Monday would: Force city departments to live within the budgets approved for them this year unless emergencies occur (such as overtime pay for policemen during the World Series, if it is played in Cincinnati ). ;' Forbid non-local travel by city employees unless such travel can be proved to be "essential." Prohibit the hiring of any new employees. The no-hiring policy at first envisioned a freeze oh all positions, meaning promotional steps would be forbidden, William K. Clark, city personnel officer, explained. But lt was later re-written to apply only to new hirings, eliminat-ing the freeze on promotions, he said. As Clark outlined the new operation, appointments to vacancies will be made from existing layoff lists. Vacant positions will be filled by a transfer either from another department or from within the department where the vacancy occurs, he continued, EPA Reports On Tests 76 Cars Get Better Mileage (c) Los Angeles Times WASHINGTON - Thanks to the catalytic converter and other engine improvements, the 1976-model cars will average about 12.8 better gas mileage than the 1975s, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reported Monday. Lumped together, all the 1976 autos tested so far by the EPA got an average of 17.6 miles per gallon in simulated city and highway driving, compared with 15.6 miles per gallon recorded by the 1975s and 13.9 miles per gallon for the 1974s. However, in California, where pollution standards are tougher, new cars will bet about 11 less gas mileage than the national figures Indicate, EPA officials said. They added hat California cars did show cited Sunday for illegal possession of a gun and was questioned and cleared by the Secret Service. Mr. Ford was emerging from a hotel when the shot was fired, and Police Lt. Frank Jordan Bald an alert patrolman deflected her .38-caliber pistol as the gun went off about 35 to 40 feet from the President As the cheers of the crowd turned to screams, Mr. Ford was rushed On Page 24: Sarah Once an FBI informant. Prior to shot: threat, arrest. by Secret Service agents into a waiting limousine and sped to the airport. The presidential Jet took off about 30 minutes later. A WOMAN identified as 8arah Jean Moore, 45, was taken into custody immediately after the shot rang out She was a known activist who had been Involved with the massive food giveaway organized last year to free kidnaped heiress Patricia Hearst The woman was carried bodily Into the St. Francis Hotel, where she was held. An hour after Air Force One took off, White House Secretary Ron Nessen, contacted by radio, said of the President's mood: "In a word, he is relaxed." Aide Robert Meade said, "Ford was not hit he is fine." The President's motorcade sped away from the hotel seconds after the shot racing toward the airport at 70 mph. It was accompanied by motorcycle police and a police hell-copter. The President's wife, Betty, was waiting for him at the plane. It was the second Incident of the day, and lt followed by two weeks an attempt on the President's life In Sacramento by a follower of the Manson clan. Earlier Monday, a 24- htenin THE NEW policy will apply to all departments exc ept the water works and the sewer divisions because they generate their own income, Clark said. Clark speculated that the savings from the non-travel policy probably would amount to very little because a restrictive travel policy already is in effect But he thought the hiring freeze and the budgetary limitations would save the city somewhere between $1 and $1.5 million by the end of the year. Sisters Of Poor Back On Ball The Little Sisters of the Poor, 576 Riddle Rd., Clifton, lost a set of four season tickets to the Cincinnati Bengals' games last July, during their move from old to new quarters. Sunday, they got the tickets back. Cincinnati Police reported that the case was solved by Bengals ticket manager Bill Hedgecock. He knew what seats the nuns held tickets for. And on Sunday, at the team's regular-season opener, gate- men were on the lookout. One of them found the loot The fans who had them were not the culprits. They had bought the $74.50-per-seat tickets from someone who had advertised them for sale In a newspaper. Now police are seeking the person who placed the ad. a "proportionate" year-to-year mileage gain compared with 1975 models that paralleled the 12.8 registered nationally. For the first time, an American-made car the new Chevrolet Che-vette was among the leaders on the EPA's list as the gas-stingiest cars it has tested for 1976. Everywhere but In California, the four-cylinder Chevette with 98-cubic-lnch engine and manual transmission was said to get 39 miles per gallon on the highway and 30 miles per - gallon In simulated city driving. TESTED WITH California pollution control equipment, however, the same Chevette model eot onlv 34 milj per gallon on the highway and year-old man was taken Into custody after allegedly showing a note threatening Mr. Ford's life to a hotel employee. JORDAN SAID Miss Moore was questioned at about 2 p.m. Sunday in front of her residence In the city's Mission District. "In the course of the conversation, she was searched and officers found a gun. The brought her immediately to the Mission Station and confiscated the pistol." A San Francisco police captain, William Conroy, said the woman had been checked by the Secret Service Sunday and had been cleared, "The Secret Service examined Ford And Aides After Gunfire Was - witness described the President as ashen-faced before he was shoved into Patty-SL SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has a seven-page document in which Patricia Hearst made critical comments about her Symblonese Liberation Army (SLA) companions, it was reported Monday. FBI agents also searched Monday for possible links between the , SLA and terrorist bombings. The San Francisco Chronicle said FBI agents found the critical document last Friday In the apartment where Miss Hearst and fellow fugitive Wendy Yoshimura had been arrested the day before. CHARLES BATES, special agent in charge of the FBI office here, refused to comment, saying to do so could prejudice trial evidence. The newspaper quoted a "source close to the case" as saying the document is "a missive of condemnation" addressed to William and Emily Harris, Miss Hearst's SLA colleagues. The couple Is "more than strongly criticized," the Chronicle quoted the same unidentified source as saying. The complaints Involve "certain actions" that the Harrises had "either taken part In or were advocating" that others In the "revolutionary struggle" disagreed with, according to another source quoted in the Chronicle story. The New York Times reported Monday that the document Indicat 24 miles per gallon in simulated city driving. The mileage champion in EPA's separate California tests continued to be the four Cylinder Datsun B-210 with manual transmission and 85-cublc-lnch engine. The Japanese Datsun averaged 41 miles per gallon in the California highway test and 29 miles per gallon In city driving. EPA Administrator Russell E. Train said several models of imported cars which sell briskly In California Including the Honda Civic and Volkswagen Rabbit have not yet completed the agency's test and therefore are not included in the mileage results released Monday. This year, the EPA released for le first time a combined city-high- her and passed her," he said. "She was on the Secret Service questionable list, and they checked her out and passed her." The Secret Service had no immediate comment on the report A official of the Delancey Street Foundation, which helped administer the $2 million People in Need program, said a Sarah Moore had worked in Its office as a bookkeeper. THE GUN apparently was deflected by a policeman Just as it was fired. Conroy said Assistant Inspector Gary Lemos spotted the gun, pushed the woman to the ground and took her gun away. By the time Mr. Ford had finished his speech, a large crowd hoping , ' I) V f - lis' A Split Rumored ed a passible break between Miss Hearst and other elements of the SLA. THE TIMES said the document showed Misses Hearst and Yoshimura were opposed to the use of bombings and other terrorist activities advocated by the Harrises and members of the Soliah family. Stephen Soliah was arrested last Thursday and charged with harboring Misses Hearst and Yoshimura in the apartment where the two were living. The Chronicle said Its sources reported that the document was in the handwriting of Miss Yoshimura and contained only Initials, not proper names. But one source said there were specific comments which "the initials show were the comments of Miss Hearst" the newspaper reported. THE DISCOVERY of explosives in the apartment where SLA members William and Emily Harris were captured last Thursday, combined with other leads in FBI files, have raised anew the possibility that the SLA became the New World Liberation Front, investigators say. The Front has claimed responsibility for 23 bombings and one arson since surfacing a year ago three months after Harris said in a taped communique: "Let it be known that way mileage figure for all cars it tested. Train said the combined figure, which is an average based on studies Indicating that the average person does 55 of his driving in the city, gives a better reflection of a car's mileage under typical conditions. The combined mileage averages showed the Datsun B-210, Chevette and Japanese Subaru tied for first place, all averaging 33 miles per gallon. As in the past, imported cars dominated the top 10 in both the national and California EPA tests. The Chevette, in fact, was the only American-made car to rank In either list The Ford Pinto ranked 19th nationally and 32nd In Califor-,fla. for a glimpse of the chief executive had gathered behind police barricades on Post Street. The block had been cordoned off for his departure. About 3000 persons saw the incident at about 6:30 p.m. Cincinnati time. "I was right out by the barricade on the side where the President came out" said Martine Vlgnali, 21, of nearby San Mateo. "The first thing he did was wave both hands up in the air. The minute his hands were up, the shot rang out He looked petrified and scared. "His face was ashen," she said. "The Secret Service shoved him in the car. It was really horrible.
