Foodstuffs, national dishes and drinks and other delicacies from aJj over Africa will be on display at the four-day event. WASHINGTON (AP) - One week after President Ford requested legislation creating an inflation-monitoring task force, Congress is nearing passage of the bill. Both the House and Senate have set floor action for today and congressional action is expected to be completed during the day. Democrats and many Republicans are skeptical whether the proposed Cost of Living Task Force, which would not have any enforcement power, could lower the nation's inflation rate. However, in the spirit of conciliation with the new President, they say they are willing to give him the legislation he asked for in a speech to Congress last Monday. Also today, the House resumes debate on a $20 billion, six-year mass transit bill which Ford says he wants cut sharply. Rep. John H. Rousselot, a conservative California Republican who believes budget cuts would do more than any task force could to curtail inflation, recalled that Congress had balked at giving former President Richard M. Nixon similar authority last spring. He then added: "Why this change now? It is because we have a new President and we are anxious to support him ... But this does not make an idea any better than it was when it was rejected four months ago." The task force has about 25 staffers and the policy would be directed by a coalition of the President's economic advisers, including the secretaries of treasury, agriculture, commerce and labor. The House is expected to wrap up action on the mass transit bill, which would provide operating subsidies for the first time as well as grants for buying equipment. Ford supports GOP congressional efforts to trim the bill to $11 billion but Democrats hope to hold the line at $15.8 billion. During the weekend, the American Automobile Association said the bill contains a little-noticed provision which would expand the weight limits of trucks allowed on interstate highways to 90,000 pounds, something the AAA said the trucking industry has sought to get in a six-year lobbying drive. They said it would endanger motorists, put more stress on "the nation's already critically deficient bridges and cost the states between $50 million and $100 million annually to repair truck-caused damage." On Tuesday, the Senate will try for the third time to cut off debate on legislation creating a consumer protection agency. The two previous attempts to cut off a filibuster lost by 10 and 7 votes and the prospects for success this week are not considered good. The House is set to act on Tuesday on a massive compromise labor and tax bill. The bill would overhaul the nation's private pension system by establishing minimum standards to protect participants while setting up a government-run insurance system to guard against a loss of benefits if a pension plan fails. Before adjourning Wednesday, the Senate expects to act on a defense funding bill. The Senate version is $82,07 billion, $4.97 billion below the budget and about $1.3 billion below the House version. The House adjourns Thursday. Reform act is praised MARION, Ark. (AP) — Rep. Bill Alexander, D-Ark., said Sunday that he believed the Campaign Spending Reform Act of 1974 would end many of the abuses connected with large political contributions. The measure would limit the amounts that could be contributed and spent in federal elections. Alexander said the "corrupting influence of big money in politics" is one of the fundamental challenges to the survival of constitutional democracy. MRS. J. D. HAYS Mrs. J.D.

Production of faulty rifle laid to Pentagon WASHINGTON (AP) - Seven years after battlefield complaints, a civilian advisory committee has blamed Viet- namdera Pentagon officials for ordering production of the M16 rifle "in spite of known deficiencies." This, in effect, refuted Army and Marine contentions in 1967 that the M16 jammed in combat principally because riflemen were not maintaining their weapons properly. "Major production decisions were made, particularly in the 1964-1965 era, in spite of known deficiencies in the M16 which had previously been identified in testing," the Army's Materiel Acquisition Review Committee said in a new report. The report suggested a major cause of difficulties was a "need for a very large quantity in a very short time." The advisory committee, drawn from industry, the universities, consulting firms and various government agencies, named no decision makers in its criticism. However, then-Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara told the House defense appropriations subcommittee in January 1966 that, after returning from Vietnam somewhat earlier, "I put on order a large quantity of M16s because I thought they would prove effective and that they would be needed." McNamara indicated he had had to overcome military opposition to the M16 saying, "I personally have been trying to introduce (it) into the military services of this country for three years." The Army awarded its first contract for 104,000 of the lightweight rifles in 1963. His 1966 testimony also implied that U.S. generals fell in line during McNamara's Vietnam trip. "All the commanders suddenly decided they wanted larger quantities," McNamara said. The M16 problems were cured in time, but it took changes in design and ammunition powder. The M16 case was analyzed by the civilian advisory committee as part of its study of the Army's process of developing, testing and producing weapons and other materiel. Its report was made public last week. "The M16 problems were not so much a failure of testing but rather a slowness of 'the system' to correct deficiencies identified by testing," the committee said. Greek Archbishop is jailed by Israelis Hope High athlete is praised by ex-coach "Mr. Inside-Outside" was the name many gave to David Johnson, outstanding Hope High football player who will be attending the U of A this fall, and former head football coach at HHS, Gaylord Solomon, told the Hope Rotary Club about the accomplishments of this athlete in a meeting at the Town and Country on Friday, August 16. Fred Ellis introduced Solomon who said that the 19- year-old Johnson is 6 feet tall and weighs 210 pounds. His accomplishments as a ball player were attributed to his speed, acceleration, durability, and attitude. During his high school career he gained 4,500 yards for an average of 8.6 yards per carry, and he scored 48 touchdowns. Statistics reveal many other outstanding facts about Johnson, but bis achievements were not emphasized during the season in order to lower the pressure on him from outside sources. Nevertheless, some 30 schools from throughout the country tried to recruit him for their freshman roster this fall. College recruiting is sometimes done in bad taste, according to Solomon, underhanded methods and extreme pressure are often used. However, he praised the U of A for the high standards it maintains in this respect. In the absence of the president and the vice- president, Dorsey McRae presided over the club meeting. He welcomed two visiting Rotarians, Gary Travis of Amite City, La., and Gene Nistendirk of Prescott, and five guests, John Lester, Sr. of LewisviUe, John Lester, Jr., Harold Mobley, Tommy Crouch, and Marcus Turley, all of Hope. By The Associated Press The Israeli government has jailed the Greek Catholic Archbishop of Jerusalem on charges of gun running for Arab terrorists in occupied Jordan. The Israeli police announced that they searched Archbishop Hilarion Capudji's Mercedes sedan on Aug. 7 as he returned from Lebanon and found "a large quantity of weapons and explosive material hidden in various parts of the car." The police said the arms were being smuggled from the Al Fatah guerrilla organization in Lebanon to Palestinian terrorists in the West Bank territory Israel took from Jordan in the 1967 war. The archbishop, a 52-year-old Syrian, was taken into custody, but this was kept secret while the Israeli government tried through intermediaries to get Greek Catholic headquarters in Beirut to quietly transfer him out of the country. However, informed sources said the Israeli military insisted the matter was too serious and an example should be made of the prelate. On Sunday he was brought before a Jerusalem magistrate who or- dered him held for 15 days while the investigation continued. The Greek Catholic church is an Eastern rite branch of the Roman Catholic Church and is under Vatican authority although its bishops are not papal appointees. Archbishop Ca- pudji's diocese covers East Jerusalem, the occupied West Bank and the towns of Ramie, Jaffa and Lod, with some 5,000 members. The archbishop is a militant Arab nationalist who has boycotted every Israeli official event since the 1967 war brought his headquarters in East Jerusalem under Israeli rule. Elsewhere: King Hussein of Jordan ended an official visit to Washington Sunday with promises of vigorous U.S. efforts toward an Israeli-Jordanian disengagement pact and plans for a U.S.- Jordanian commission to work out new American military and economic assistance to his nation. _ The tallest iceberg on record was an iceberg carved off northwest Greenland with £50 feet showing above the face.
