Wednesday* September 25* 19<4 (Attic.) WAK Honduras GM supports moratorium refugees getfood CHOLOMA, Honduras (AP) — Throngs of hungry Hondurans made homeless by Hurricane Fifi jumped up and down trying to catch bunches of green bananas donated by local merchants. At the airport in nearby San Pedro Sula, there were cartons of clothes and medicine but not a tin of food or sack of grain left. The constant preoccupation of more than 1,000 refugees who sleep in a park in the center of devastated Choloma is the next meal. At noon, cups of milk, rice and soya are spooned out to a long line of ragged children. In the late afternoon, adults get stew, meat and bean stew. Arturo Castillo, president of the Independent Banana Producers Association, is heading the relief food program in the hard-hit San Pedro Sula-Choloma area. He says foreign countries haven't sent "that much food" and there are organizational problems to be straightened out. President Oswaldo Lopez Arellano flew over the devastated area again Tuesday and said the international relief operation was working well. But transportation is still a critical problem due to washed out roads and a shortage of helicopters, and 50,000 persons are believed still isolated. Relief officials feared an outbreak of epidemics unless medicine and vaccines reached them. Two helicopters from the British army battalion in Belize joined four U.S. helicopters Tuesday in distributing food and rescuing flood victims. West German and Venezuelan jets flew in with emergency food and medical supplies. Lopez Arellano k/aid while the hurricane wrecked the export banana and cattle operations on the northeast coast, the storm missed most of the areas that produce the Hondurans' basic foods. Sources in New York predicted the pricerof bananas in American supermarkets would go up five cents a pound or more, perhaps to 30 cents a pound or more. The National Emergency Committee's latest report put the estimated death toll from the hurricane at between 7,500 and 8.000. \ By: DOUG HAYNIE K.PH.

Prostaglandins are being hailed as new miracle drugs. Besides having obstetrical uses, certain of the substances can lower blood pressure, ease ulcers and relieve respiratory ills. Still largely experimental, though. New blood test can diagnose a pregnancy almost immediately. It can even tell whether the pregnancy is a normal, uterine one, or ectopic.

Phone 777-6446 DETROIT (AP) - General Motors has begun to flex its corporate muscle in support of a three-year moratorium on new auto safety and antipollution laws, calling them inflationary. In his strongest criticism yet of federal regulations, GM Chairman Richard Gerstenberg also called for a joint government-industry review of the need for existing and proposed regulations. "We question whether today's jnflalion does not make all the more necessary a complete moratorium on laws that disproportionately affect the costs of cars and trucks," Gerstens- berg told the Citizens' Research Council on Tuesday. "High prices cause inflation like wet streets cause rain," he The! sv Corner said of the relationship between GM prices and the nation's inflationary spiral. "Cost without value causes inflatioh; rising prices are merely symptoms." GM revealed on Tuesday that Gerstenberg had written to President Ford early this month asking that Ford consider a moratorium. GM said Ford replied that'he had sent the proposal to federal agencies for study. In Washington, Sen. Edmund S. Muskie, D-Maine, the author of the Clean Air Act, said he had told Mayor Thomas Bradley of Los Angeles in a letter on Tuesday that there will be no further amendments to the act in this Congress, adding, "I personally feel that any change at this time would be premature." The proposed moratorium has been endorsed by both the Ford Motor Co. and the Chrysler Corp. In a recent interview with The Associated Press, Gerstenberg questioned whether some safety and clean air improve* ments have been worth the money they have cost the industry and the public. Gerstenberg said government - mandated equipment since the fall of 1971 has cost GM about $1 billion — $300 million in 1974 alone — and added about $270 to the price of each GM vehicle. During the same three-year span, however, the company has raised prices an average $1,200. family center 600 N. HERVEY ST. - HERVEY SQUARE OPEN 9-9 MON.
