Unofficial records showed that no previous president had gone to a government agency to sign a major piece of legislation. Before stepping into the department's auditorium for the signing ceremony, Ford strolled down a long, drab corridor of the headquarters building, shaking hands with federal em- ployes who stood in office doorways. From there, he headed to Capitol Hill where in unusual, informal appearances on the floor of the House and Senate he burnished his already glowing relations with Congress. "... We can march toward the center in achieving some good results for our country as a whole," Ford told the Senate in praising action to re-establish the Cost of Living Council, limit appropriation bills, and implement housing, pension and education programs. He said it doesn't matter that Congress and the executive branch fail to see eye-to-eye on some issues., "It only matters that we end up on the best side for America,"hesaid. In the House, where he served 25 years as a Michigan congressman, and in the Senate, Ford received standing ovations, hundreds of handshakes and scores of friendly slaps upon the back, The HEW-Capitol Hill outing was sandwiched between two other moves to further bolster his congressional program. He met with the congressional black caucus, and caucus members came away with praise for Ford's pledge that his door would be open to them for follow-up discussions. Ford posed for individual campaign photographs in the Oval Office with 12 Republican House and Senate candidates. Nine were senators seeking reelection, two were House members doing the same and the other was retired Air Force Col. Leo Thorsness, seeking the seat of Sen. George McGovern, D-S.D. Ford also was at Andrews Air Force Base, Md., as the body of Rodger Paul Davies, the U.S. ambassador to Cyprus slain during a mob attack on the embassy in Nicosia, was returned to the United States. Ford eulogized the diplomat as a man who "lost his life in the search for peace in America and all the world." YOU'VE HEARD of having a chip on your shoulder? This t'liiixvsv acrobat seems to have been carried a\va> during a recent Shanghai performance. Subsidies I Continued from Front Page) said on Wednesday that farmers who produce wheat, corn, sorghumn barley or upland cotton may be eligible for the payments to "recover some of their losses" from weather this year. If the $500 million estimate is correct, it would boost farm subsidies this calendar year to at least $800 million, a spokesman said. Cypriot police hold unidentified person NICOSIA, Cyrpus (AP) Greek Cypriot police hunting for the killers of U.S. Ambassador Rodger P. Davies held an unidentified person in custody today in connection with the anli-American riot that led to the shooting of the diplomat. Two other persons were arrested on Wednesday but were released after questioning. The police refused to give any information about them and would not say whether they were among the three persons for whom warrants were issued in conneclion with the riot. A government statement said only that investigations were being "actively pursued in all directions under the personal supervision of the attorney general." The snipers who killed Davies on Monday were believed to be members of the EOKA-B guerrilla organization that is seeking union with Greece. Meanwhile, the cease-fire between the Turkish invasion forces and the Greek Cypriot troops appeared to be holding on Wednesday as torrential rains drenched the island. United Nations Secretary- Escapee is found after six years »/ TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - John Aboud Sr., a Tucson lawyer, said Wednesday he will ask the Arizona Attorney General's office to turn down any extradition request for his client, Alvin Tyger, 26, who has lived here since shortly after his escape six years ago from an Arkansas prison. Aboud said Arkansas officials refused requests this week for parole and clemency in Tyger's case. The lawyer said Arkansas officials have told him the prison situation there has changed and the man's new life in Tucson will be taken into consideration if he returns. Aboud reported he received a letter Aug. 15 from Robert Brown, legal aide to Gov. Dale Bumpers, saying the "horrible situation" in prisons there has been corrected. The letter said that Tyger must returnn to prison in Arkansas, Aboud said. Brown said Tyger's case will be reviewed when he is eligible for parole. Tyger, who lives in Tucson under the alias of Bobby O'Brien, has nine years and two months left of his term, his lawyer said. Tyger married after his escape and has one child. He fled an Arkansas prison while serving two consecutive burglary terms totalling 10 years. "What earthly purpose could it serve to send that man back to prison for a crime he committed as a teenager?" Aboud asked. "He's obviously already rehabilitated." Aboud said Tyger has a steady job and has kept a "spotless" record for the past three years. General Kurt Waldheim said he had rejected a Turkish demand for the withdrawal of U.N. peacekeeping troops from the Turkish-occupied area of Cyprus. Waldheim told newsmen in Tunis, "We refused this request because we are convinced the United Nations can only play a useful role if it can operate in all parts of the island." He also said he has proposed a further increase in the 4,300- man U.N. force because its present size "is not enough for the considerable task it has to fulfill." Obituaries OWEN R. WILSON Owen R.

Rockefeller says he expects to spend a lot of time helping Republican candidates this fall. Besides keeping four or five political speaking dates each month, dates made before he was nominated Tuesday for vice president, Rockefeller says President Ford "would like me to take some of his previous engagements." But the former New York governor emphasized in talking to reporters when he flew here Wednesay night after speaking to a Republican dinner in Newport, R.I., that "it really depends on the President" and that no firm policy has been decided Earlier Wednesday, in Providence, R.I., Rockefeller sought to assure congressional Democrats that his campaigning won't be directed solely against them. "I'll campaign for people, but not against anybody. I've never been a campaigner who slashed out at the other side," he said. A top Rockefeller aide, meanwhile, said the nominee had also discussed with Ford the possibility of taking a major role in the administration's battle against inflation and of becoming head of the White House Domestic Council. But Hugh Morrow, the aide, said nothing final had been decided. Rockefeller's fast-paced schedule here today includes 19 courtesy calls on Senate and House members, including his one-time rival, Sen. Barry M. Goldwater, R-Ariz. Goldwater said on Tuesday that some GOP conservatives were upset when Ford chose Rockefeller. Asked about this on Wednesday, Rockefeller said now was the time for national and party unity. "We've got too many serious problems to deal with petty squabbles and ideological squabbles," he said. Rockefeller also planned to have lunch with Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger and dinner with Ford before returning to his Seal Harbor, Maine, retreat. Aides said Rockefeller hopes to have 10 days of relaxation after a press conference Friday morning. In chatting with reporters aboard the Air Force Convair prop plane made available to him by the White House, Rockefeller said one reason he agreed to accept the vice presidential nomination, a post he previously had spurned, is that "this has just got to be a fan- laslic moment in American history. "It's like tacking a boat, we are on a totally new tack," he said of the transition from the Nixon to the Ford administration. "I think it's very exciting." ^Here's a great place to visit.
