Press ban is drawn up BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — Legislative approval is expected soon of a bill virtually banning press reports of terrorism and providing heavy penalties for political dissent. The Senate approved the government bill on Thursday, and the Chamber of Deputies is expected to pass it soon. The government proposed the legislation to counter a growing wave of terrorism that has taken an average of one victim a day since President Isabel Peron succeeded her husband on July 1. The heaviest penalties called for by the bill — three to eight years in prison without the possibility of pardon — are for those who 'attempt by any means "to alter or suppress the institutional order and social peace of the nation." The Buenos Aires Herald, one of the few papers to comment on the draft before the Senate vote, said that "even a superficial reading of the proposed legislation reveals that the measures could be used to stifle all opposition to the government." the business session of the meeting, the appointed delegates (two from each county) nominated Mrs. Silly Gray 6f Loekesbitfg as lay dif ectof. The formal election of division board members will take place at the division annual meeting to be held in Little Rock, October 10. Volunteers attending the meeting were given information concerning the orgih of the American Cancer Society, and its historical data and background. The chief purpose of the Society from its inception has been threefold-to educate people to recongize a symptom of cancer and seek diagnosis and treatment early enouch to have an opportunity for cure, to provide all available services to people stricken with the disease, and to raise as much money as possible each year to finance the Society's programs. Division program director, Mrs. Cherye Riggs, brought the volunteers' attention to the Division's "ACTION PROGRAMS" - Education and Service, and involved them in a discussion and exchange of ideas on how these programs of the Society could be expanded and made more effective to obtain the goal set by the Society to "WIPE OUT CANCER IN YOUR LIFETIME." A brief summary of the results of the 1974 Crusade was given, and objectives of the education and service programs for the coming year were outlined. Volunteers attending from Hempstead County were Mrs. Velma May, Mrs. Lura Impson, Mrs. Chariean'Etter, Mrs. Gracie Alford, Mrs. Pauline Matthews and Mrs. Lois Purtell.
