Study shows smokers can tolerate less pain CHICAGO (AP) - Whites who smoke have less ability to tolerate pain than white nonsmokers, a California study has found. But no significant difference was found between black and Oriental smokers and nonsmokers. The study involved 66,410 subjects examined in the Kaiser- Permanente health screening program at Oakland, Calif. It is reported in the September issue of the Archives of Environmental Health, published by the American Medical Association. Authors of the study are Dr. Carl C. Seltzer of the Harvard School of Public Health, Boston, and Dr. Gary D. Friedman, Abraham B. Siegelaub and Dr. Morris F. Collen of the Permanente Medical Group. They wrote that explanations for the differences in pain tolerance "are not clear at this time." They suggested that "the possible role of constitutional differences between smokers and nonsmokers should be considered as well as other explanations." Previously, the researchers reported that they had found that pain tolerance decreased with age, men tolerated more ,pain than women, whites more than Orientals and that the pain tolerance of blacks fell between that of whites and Orientals. Their latest study found that there was a decrease in pain tolerance among both white male and female smokers and at every age level. Similar differences were found among black and Oriental male and female smokers, but not to a significant degree, the researchers said.

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Ford appears to have used the American foreign policy establishment as a refuge for peoplfe whose past identification with Richard M. Nixon could embarrass the White House. Two of three major diplomatic appointments announced Wednesday fall in this description, according to U.S. officials and some foreign diplomats posted here. The sources also included the White House decision to restore presidential chief of staff Alexander M. Haig Jr. to military duty, possibly as commander of NATO armed forces. Ford named George Bush as the new head of the U.S. mission in Peking, ending his 21- month role as Republican national chairman. Appointed ambassador to France was Kenneth Rush who served as Nixon's economic policy coordinator and who once taught law to Nixon. "This certainly is not a question of Ford trying to show he is in command of foreign policy by these appointments," a State Department source said. "These are not his people." A Western European diplomat agreed. "He's showing the door to some men who could give him trouble, but he is not hurting them either. These are good jobs, but they are out of the American sight-line." The evident exception to the effort to send abroad former key Nixon associates was the decision to name former Kentucky GOP Sen. John Sherman Cooper as first American ambassador to East Germany. Cooper was not closely tied to Nixon. Bush and Rush, however, were tightly attached to Nixon and his policies. As GOP chairman, Bush spent nearly all his tenure defending Nixon's Watergate role and scoffing at those who cast suspicion on the then president.

Watergate. His troubling connection was to Nixon's economd ic policy and the current inflation crisis. Ford "wants whatever credit he can get if inflation goes down and he doesn't want anyone saying 'Ford blew it by Eisenhower discusses Nixon family reaction WASHINGTON (AP) - in the waning days of Richard M. Nixon's presidency, his family concluded it would be useless to fight impeachment to the bitter, predictable end, says David Eisenhower, Nixon's son-in- law. "It became our conclusion that history will treat this administration just as unkindly simply for the sake of grinding the country down for another six months, given the economic chaos ..." Eisenhower said. In a luncheon interview three weeks after Nixon surrendered the presidency, Eisenhower, 26, discussed the family's reaction to the politically fatal June 23 tape recordings and Nixon's decision to resign. "I think he was surprised by the fact that his family was willing to go through it, if need be," Eisenhower said. He also said it would be a good idea if Nixon ran again for public office. "He's been defensive ... he's been bitter. He's been all the rest in the last year and a half," Eisenhower said. "But in calmer times under different circumstances, the man has a heck of a lot to contribute. "If he went into the Senate, I think it would be a good idea ... But I'm positive he's not thinking about it now." Asked if he thought Nixon lied to the country about his knowledge of the Watergate cover-up, Eisenhower said, "I don't know. I don't know what's on the rest of the tapes. I'm not going to pass judgment on that." Nixon was reluctant to tell his family about the damaging contents of the June 23 tapes, Eisenhower said. On Friday, Aug. 2, three days before admitting publicly that he had aU tempted to thwart the FBI's Watergate investigation, Nixon telephoned Julie and told her "something very serious had come up, that he'd probably have to resign." He summoned daughter Tricia and her husband Edward Cox from New York and close friend C. G. "Bebe" Rebozo was in town at the time, Eisenhower said. The family gathered in the privacy of the second floor of the White House. The then-president supplied transcripts and instructions "to think about it a little while and come back," Eisenhower said, without revealing exactly what Nixon told his family. On Wednesday, Aug. 7, a day before he announced his decision to the country, Nixon told his family he would resign. "... We were concerned whether the smoking pistol was here or not, whether the innocence or so-called guilt. However the issues were resolved, as a family it was best to remind ourselves that 1968 was not a mistake, that if the Nixon administration came to a premature end, so be it." Eisenhower stressed that the Watergate tragedy has not ended for Nixon. "There's still something very direct and very threatening at issue right now," he said. "He's already been subpoenaed ... It's clear he has financial trouble ... but certainly a candid memoir would be worth a tremendous amount of money." keeping the old Nixon people' if the economy keeps floundering," one administration source said. The President reportedly has been under pressure to move Haig, who retired as a four-star general in 1973 to take over the While House job following the resignation of H. R. Haldeman. He, too, was a major defender of Nixon during the Watergate era. In Congress the only initial adverse comment came from Sen. William Proxmire, D-Wis., whose criticism dealt with the potential politicizing of the Army. "Returning Alexander Haig to active duty status would send a signal throughout the military officers corps that politics pays off — and in a big way," Proxmire said. ESD official suspended LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Cecil L. Malone Jr., associate administrator in charge of unemployment insurance in the state Employment Security Division, has been suspended for 45 days, reportedly for insubordination. The suspension was by J. Merle Lemley, administrator of the ESD. Malone, who has been with the agency for 21 years, said Wednesday he was summoned last week from a meeting in Salt Lake City and handed a memorandum suspending him for 30 days with pay. He said the memorandum mentioned no specific charge and that Lemley did not discuss it. Lemley could not be reached for comment Wednesday. Another administrative official said an additional 15-day suspension had been added to the 30 days "to give Mr. Malone time to rebut the insubordination."
