Customers are walking off with just about everything but the kitchen sink. "People are calling for more rolls, bread, butter and crackers for their tables and are carting much of it away in their pockets, purses and in doggie bags — there never have been so many requests for doggie bags," says Larry Buckmaster, executive director of the Chicago and Illinois Restaurant Association. Buckmaster said the take- home trend has been noted by many of the association's 4,800 members, who blame spiraling food costs. "If it's happening in Illinois — where the caper is costing thousands of dollars a week — it certainly is going on all over the country," said Buckmaster. He adds that the amount of tips also is falling off. "Consumption of sugar has risen 100 per cent in the last year," he said. "It is being taken from the tables by the handful. One woman even was spotted unscrewing the caps of salt and pepper shakers and pouring the contents into envelopes. Another stuffed an individual loaf of bread into her purse. Bread and cracker consumption is up by more than 33 per cent." Buckmaster said several cafe owners outsmarted ketchup bottle filchers by leaving them uncapped. "They couldn't pour the stuff in their pockets," Buckmaster explained. "It has always been taken for granted that ash trays will be taken," he said. "But cups, silverware and plates are going now. "We have a report of one brazen customer slyly substituting old silverware for a new table setting. And we'd give anything to solve the problem of disappearing toilet paper rolls. "Restaurant men are beginning to cut way back on condiments at the table and limiting rolls and crackers. They say business is up by 22 per cent but profits are down by 6 per cent. "This added expense from the take-home crowd in the long run will just be passed on to the customer. They can't keep biting the hand that feeds them." Legionnaire denounces amnesty CABOT, Ark. (AP) - Earl M. Cherry of Cabot, commander of the state Department of the American Legion, has denounced President Ford's granting of conditional amnesty to draft evaders and military deserts. Cherry sent Ford a telegram to that effect. "Your release of amnesty and ways of dealing with the 50,000-plus who would not serve their country honorably is very disappointing to the American Legion Department of Arkansas," Cherry said in the telegram. "We feel that the constituted courts, military and civilian, are the means for fostering justice for draft evaders and deserters or anyone that violates the law of this land." Cherry said it would be a great injustice to have a deserter fill a job position to which a veteran who honorably served his country would be entitled^ The seminar will give supervisory persohftel an opportunity to develop their skills in the field of management and will be limited to only 32 persons to insure maximum participation.

Nixon will probably enter a hospital within a week, according to his daughter. A team of medical specialists was reported on standby at the Camp Pendleton naval hospital near his San Clemente, Calif., home. Julie Nixon Eisenhower said on Tuesday that the treatment Nixon received at home for the blood clots in his leg veins has improved his phlebitis and that he will enter the hospital "to get something checked." She said her mother had indicated that the former president was "irritable" because of the illness, but she labeled as "crazy" reports that his mind was wandering or that he was dangerously depressed about having to resign office last month. "Of course, he's not on top of the world," Mrs. Eisenhower said after taping several segments of the NBC-TV "Not for Women Only" program in New York. In other developments involving the former president: —Attorneys Herbert J. Miller Jr. and Raymond G. Larroca announced on Tuesday that they have filed a motion in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles to quash a subpoena requiring Nixon to testify in a civil suit next week. The motion, scheduled for a hearing on Monday, contends that Nixon is too ill to testify. The suit filed by 21 persons in Charlotte, N.C., contends that White House aides and local officials illegally prevented them from attending a 1971 rally hon- oring the Rev. Billy Graham in Charlotte. Nixon spoke at the event, and he has been ordered to testify in the suit by entering a deposition in Santa Ana, Calif., on Sept. 24. An attorney for the group agreed to a delay "for a reasonable length of time." —The California Supreme Court took under advisement Nixon's formal resignation from the California bar. The State'Bar Board of Governors recommended that the resignation be accepted without prejudice to further disciplinary proceedings against Nixon if he should seek reinstatement. The letter of resignation received by the court on Tuesday was Nixon's second attempt to % resign from the state bar. A previous letter was rejected because it failed to acknowledge that a disciplinary matter was- pending against Nixon. If the court were to reject the resignation, it would leave the former president open to possible disbarment. —Obey all traffic laws. Paul Henley, director of Parks and Recreation, was guest speaker at Tuesday's Kiwanis Club meeting at Town and Country restaurant. He was presented by Crit Stuart Jr. Henley gave a report on the operations of his department, dividing his remarks into a report of the past, present, and future. In the immediate past was the baseball season with a Doctors League, a Babe Ruth League, a Jr. American Legion team, and two independent teams, as well as a girls softball league. At City Park and Fair Park pools there were 13,000 swimmers, and 350 people who took swimming lessons. There was a fishing derby, a track and field meet, Jr. Olympic basketball program and independent basketball. Presently a tennis tournament is about to get under way on the new Tartan surfaced courts. The grade school football program has strated, and a flag football program for adults is starting. A petting zoo is in the making and the Parks and Recreation Department is assisting in the preparation of the planters on the new parking lots. They are also providing assistance in serving meals to the elderly and in projects of the Golden Age Club. In the future there are definite plans for expansion of Fair Park as well as replacing the old band stand and converting the city shops to other uses, if the city can acquire the recently vacated Highway office and shop on Highway 67 near the Park. Gas lines through the park to the cooking facilities had started leaking rather badly, necessitating cutting off the gass. These lines and facilities will be replaced. Henley slated that the Parks and Recreation Department In April 1973, it was stated that there were only 247,000 cars registered in Moscow for the U.S.S.R. budget had been cut five per cent and their expense was up about 25 per cent. "We have lots of plafts, but tto money," said Henley.
