Hansford has a long and admirable record of service in Lions club work. In addition to having served as district governor, he is presently a member of the board of Arkansas Enterprises for the Blind, chairman of the board of the Arkansas Lions Eye and Kidney Bank, and district chairman of the Leo Club-Youth Exchange program. He is a resident of Arkadelphia. Hansford explained the formation and rules of a Leo Club, and the workings of the Youth Exchange program. Leo clubs are affiliated with Lions much the same as Key clubs are associated with Kiwanis. The Ix:o clubs are sponsored by Lions. Members fall in the age range of 15 to 20 years, or through high school. They have their own meetings at least twice monthly, and they plan and execute their own projects along with Lion member advisors. In the Youth Exchange program, the home club of the young person involved pays travel costs and when the exchange student arrives in the host country, individual Lions there take care of him for the duration of his stay. These exchanges take place during vacation months and seldom exceed eight weeks. Hansford pointed out that it is less expensive from the club's standpoint to be the host than to send a young person overseas. In reporting on the Eye and Kidney Bank, the speaker said that 78 eyes had been processed and 28 kidney transplants had been made so far this year. Chairman Jack Caldwell arranged the program and introduced the speaker. The Lions' annual picnic will be held at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 26, at Fair Park. No noon meeting will be held that day and no luncheon meeting will be held on Labor Day. Guests present were Gary Rhodes with father, A.J. Rhodes; Mark Watson and Don ». Richardson with Lion Rowan > McLeod; and Bill Harkrider with Lion Royce Pendergrass.

The second category of between 240 and 270 cities with 50,000 population or more would be allocated $1.7 billion. They also have the possibility of getting $2.9 billion more from a third pot to be distributed on a city-by-city basis at the discretion of the secretary of transportation. The fourth category would be the first federal funds for mass transit systems in small towns and rural areas, with $500 million authorized. Rep. Bella S. Abzug, D-N. Ym, a sponsor of the $20 billion bill, said more money might be authorized in a House-Senate conference. Even if not, "I believe it is a basic victory. The big thing is that for the first time the federal government has affirmed that both operating subsidies and capital investment funds will be provided for mass transit," she said.

Controls ruled out By EDMOND LeBRETON Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - President Ford has pledged not to seek wage-price controls, saying recent experience makes it clear that compulsory controls would be most undesirable. He made the statement on Tuesday as Congress was completing action on his request for legislation to re-establish a wage and price monitoring agency. The new agency would depend on investigation and disclosure of increases that threaten to feed inflation. It would have no authority to impose controls. "I will do my best to see that the new price and wage monitoring agency works effectively to combat inflation," Ford said. "There will be no mandatory wage and price controls." The President added that he wanted to get this message to labor and business leaders so they can act accordingly. Ford also moved to set up a steering committee to prepare for an economic summit conference scheduled for late September or early October. He has promised to preside at the economic summit, which also would include representatives from Congress, management, labor and consumer groups. The bill setting up a Council on Wage and Price Stability, in effect a revival of the old Cost of Living Council, was the first 'specific legislation Ford asked for. The House took the final action approving it on Tuesday, 369-27. The Senate already passed the bill.

At a state farm near Oimer, Nova Bystrice, a calf was born with five legs and veterinarians expected it to die. Guest speaker at Tuesday's Kiwanis Club meeting at Town and Country Restaurant was Crit Stuart III who has just returned from a six months stay in Europe, principally in Holland and Greece where he lived among the people, gaining a more intimate knowledge and understanding of how they feel about America than is gained by the average short term tourist. Stuart divided his talk into two sections, the first dealing with personal conversations he had with individuals of differing backgrounds and ages from various countries that comprise the European continent. The second part of his talk covered the situation existing in Greece only four weeks ago as the hostilities broke out between Greece and Turkey. There are many opinions about America among those with whom he talked, some positive, some negative and many in between. In pacifist Holland they were more concerned with America's foreign policy, and particularly the situation in Viet Nam. A 75- year-old man who expressed a need for real peace in the world sees America as the cornerstone of any world peace effort. "A jockey from Belgium with whom I talked was the most postitive voice I heard concerning America. He had a very warm feeling for us," said Stuart. The concern of a 30- year-old German architect was the reaction of Americans to the problems we have in America. He felt that the same problems would be faced in Europe in the future, and that Europe might be guided in their reactions by how America meets these problems. A young free lance German journalist expressed love for —Henry Haynes photo with Star camera CRIT STUART III addresses club America and expressed the idea that America is too concerned about Watergate. Stuart seemed to feel that a few weeks ago the feeling in northern Europe was to leave Nixon alone while in the southern part of Europe it was to kick him out. Most of Stuart's time in Europe was spent in Greece. It is a beautiful country where people seem more like Americans from the Southern United State. They seem to be 50 to 60 years behind the times and their economic situation is bad. The people rejoiced at the fall of the military regime a few weeks ago and felt they would prosper under a democratic form of government. Their rejoicing was short lived as their trouble with Turkey exploded, the speaker said. Stuart was one of the last foreign born to be able to leave Greece. Transportation was at a standstill and borders were closed, and anti-American sentiment was mounting at the time of his departure. Guests at Tuesdays meeting were Mrs. Crit Stuart Sr., Mrs. Crit Stuart Jr., Rebecca Stuart, Jim Stuart, Mrs. George Frazier, Bobbie Embry, all of Hope, John Lester of Lewisville, and Harry Lungaard of Texarkana.
