Petty says improper conduct would not keep her from work LITTLE ROCK ( AP) - While Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., remained in seclusion for the eighth consecutive day Tuesday, his Republican opponent, Judy Petty, said she never would miss a week of congressional business because of any " mpropercon^, , .., 'MrsrPetly, 30,-sfld that if elected and if she ever were to miss a congressional committee meeting, it probably would be because she would be with the voters of the 2nd District in an effort to find out their views.. Mrs. Petty did not raise the issue of Mills' absence from Congress after the Oct. 7 Tidal Basin Incident at Washington. A student at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock, where Mrs. Petty was campaigning, raised the incident during a question-and-answer session. The student, saying an incident had caused Mills to miss a week of congressional business, asked Mrs. Petty if she, if elected, could be counted on to avoid conduct that would cause her to miss congressional activity. Mrs. Petty paused, then replied, "Yes." Mills has not been in Congress since his speeding, unlighted car was stopped about 2 a.m. and Mills was found by police ,,to,,,be .intoxicated and. j bleeding' from 1 facial cuts. ; A • woman got out of the car, which was not being driven by Mills, and plunged into the Tidal Basin, according to U.S. Park Police. The woman, Annabel Battistella, later was identified as an ex-stripper. A Mills aide said the House Ways and Means Committee chairman missed congressional business because he "had a bug." Mrs. Petty, a secretary for the late former Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller, also said Tuesday she had received "not one dime" from either Nelson A. Rockefeller or from Winthrop Paul Rockefeller, the late governor's son. Mrs. Petty said she was very proud of her association with the late former Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller for what he had done in building a two-party system in Arkansas and in "opening the windows" of state government. The remarks were made in answer., to .a question about! whether she would represent "special interest groups" if elected. Another student asked Mrs. Petty, who is divorced, how voters could be expected to believe that she could deal with the nation's problems if she had been unable to save her marriage in 1967. That question drew some hisses and boos from other students, and Mrs. Petty reacted in a way that suggested she thought the question was not CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - Ismail Fahmy, the straight-talking for* eign minister who engineered Egypt's friendship with the United Slates at the expense of its ties with Russia, has now convinced Soviet leader Leonid I. Brezhnev to visit Cairo. The Soviet Union announced Tuesday that Brezhnev will make his first visit to Cairo in January for meetings with President Anwar Sadat. Brezh- nev agreed to the summit after long talks with Fahmy and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko. The invitation indicated that Sadat is apparently becoming unhappy with the scarcity of concrete results from his year- old opening to the United Stales. Fahmy was accompanied to Moscow by chief of staff LI. Gen. Abdcl Ghany Gamasy and War Production Minister Ahmed Kamal. Their presence indicates Sadat hopes to restore ihe flow of Soviet arms, including the modern missiles and planes that have been supplied to Syria and other Arab slates. A popular figure both in Washington and in Moscow, Fahmy made Egypt's new search for a balance between the superpowers clear when he met with Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger on Sunday and the next morning flew off for Moscow. Fahmy was named foreign minister soon after the October 1973 war while in Washington making the first overtures to President Nixon and Kissinger for a more active U.S. role in settling the crisis between Israel and the Arabs. The romance he helped engineer reached a peak last June when millions of Egyptians greeted Nixon in Cairo and the American leader promised Egypt nonmilitary nuclear and economic aid. Two months earlier, Sadat had lashed out at the Soviets for not supplying him sufficient arms and. declared he * would search' elsewhere • for military l supplies. Egyptian military chiefs reportedly became unhappy as the Israeli and Syrian arsenals were replenished while American diplomacy made little headway in the Middle East. pertinent to the campaign. But she went .on to say that, "without a dime of child support," she had managed to raise her daughter, Debbie. "I wish I had my 10-year-old daughter here; I wish I could show you what I could do," Mrs. Petty said. HOLLYWOOD'S NEWEST hero is Benji—from the movie of the same name. His real name is Higgins and he was known for years as a regular on TV's Petticoat Junction. Now he's a movie star. Arkansas' Charlie Rich sings the opening theme in Benji, which is a family film told entirely from a dog's point of view. Benji and-or Higgins shares star honors with Peter Breck (The Bjg Valley), Edgar Buchanan (Petticoat Junction), and Frances BaVier (Aunt Bea of the Andy Griffith Show). Dairy farmers selling more cows WASHINGTON (AP) — Although the rate has tapered off lately, Agriculture Department figures show dairy farmers in the first nine months of this year sold more cows than they did in the first three quaters of 1973. A spokesman for the National Milk Producers Federation said Tuesday another round of herd culling soon may occur because of high feed prices and other production" '.costs'," through" slaughter prices of dairy cows are down sharply from a year ago. The USDA figures show producers trimmed about 127,000 cows from their herds from January through September, compared with cutbacks of approximately 114,000 head during the same nine-month periods of both 1973 and 1972. Selling was heaviest a year ago when beef demand helped elevate slaughter prices for culled milk cows. About 30,000 were sold in September last year; compared with 8,000 last month, according to figures published by USDA's Statistical Reporting Service. The report said total milk production in September, estimated at less than 9.13 billion pounds, was up 3 per cent from the same month last year. That was because of higher production per cow. Herd inventories—estimated at 1^,132^- OOO^ncjid ',iV'Sep|'emf)e'r—wer(?,< down 2 per cent from a year earlier. According to the National Milk Producers Federation spokesman, some dairy farmers apparently slowed down herd culling because cow slaughter prices dropped so much—less than one-half of what they were a year ago— and to see what might happen to feed prices. Bui new USDA crop estimates show feed grain production will be smaller than in- dicated Sept. 1, meaning that high prices for dairy rations will continue. The federation spokesman said many dairy farmers may renew herd culling soon and put a further damper on milk output in the near future. Although last month's milk output was up from September last year, .USDA said January- September , production^t at less -than Sfl.l billion pounds- tailed last year's three-quarter total by 1.1 per cent. —Be a courteous driver.
