An investigation is continuing. WASHINGTON (AP) - The coordinator of a White House citizen anti-inflation committee hopes to begin awarding President Ford's WIN flag soon after Thanksgiving. The WIN flags are intended to stimulate Americans to fight inflation und Ford has said they would be awarded by local action committees on the basis of how well wages and prices are held in check. RussellFreeburg,coordinator for the White House Citizens Action Committee to Fight Inflation, said the flag itself still is a prototype, but that Ford has seen it. It depicts the letters WIN — for Whip Inflation Now — in white letters in a solid red, circular background, similar to Ford's WIN button, on a white field with blue border. ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Former Secretary of State Dean Rusk was expected to undergo further medical tests at Athens General Hospital where he was admitted for a routine checkup.

Johnson, entered the hospital Tuesday night. . The former cabinet member's wife said he checked into the hospital after he "had some .discomfort, probably just a stiff .neck, but it caused him a good deal of pain." $: - :: - Risk's ..dqc. tor, 'said: all 'iests conducted thus far had "turned out just fine." NEW YORK (AP) — Martha Mitchell has won temporary alimony of $1,000 a week, one third of the amount she had asked for from her estranged husband, former U.S. Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell. State Supreme Court Justice Manuel Goez, noting Wednesday that .Mitchell's income after fixed expenses is $2,744.40 a week, scaled down the alimony figure and also cut Mrs. Mitchell's request for lawyers fees to $3,500. She had asked for $35,000 for the lawyers handling her preliminary suit for separation on abandonment charges. At an Oct. 8 hearing, lawyers for Mitchell had said Mrs. Mitchell was living in surroundings that rivalled the Taj Mahal. Her lawyers said her financial condition was dire. Mitchell is on trial in Washington in the Watergate cover- up case. ATLANTA (AP) - Physicians for Academy Award-winning Actress Susan Hayward say she is seriously ill but won't say what's wrong with her.

(AP) — Margaret Truman Daniel says she is cataloguing papers of her father, the late President Harry S. Truman, for transfer to the Truman Library.. She was here Wednesday "to turn over all of Dad's papers to the archives and because "I just wanted to see Mom," she said._ Mrs. Daniel said Bess Truman is "doing just fine ... Oh, she's a little slower getting around, but after all, shell be 90 in February." • She planned to return to her home and family in Washington on Friday- She is married to Clifton Daniel, Washington bureau chief for the New York Times. KENSEirr,Ark.(AP)-The brother Of Rep. Wilbttf D. Mills, D-Afk.i says he is very pleased with the reaction of most Kensett residents to the congressman's explanation about the tidal Basin incident at Washington, D.C. But, Roger Mills, who runs a family store here, also said, "there will be a few, I guess, that won't vote for him." "Everybody has been coming in and offering their support," Roger Mills said, "A lady called me up. She was fixing to be gone but she was wanting to find out how to get an absentee ballot. She wanted to be sure and vote. She said, 'I wish I could vote a whole lot of times for him." Perrln Jones, publisher of the Searcy Daily Citizen and a longtime Mills supporter, found the situation Wednesday perhaps better than it was before questions about Mills' conduct arose. Jones said he had feared that supporters of Mills had failed to take Mills' unprecedented GOP opposition seriously enough. The Tidal Basin incident brought the congressman's supporters out of their lethargy, Jones said. Jones said that last week talk at Searcy revolved around the question of how the incident would affect Mills' future. This week, he said, the theory that their congressman was somehow framed has crept into somesupporters' conversations.. "Land, we've known him all his life," remarked Kensett Postmaster J.W. .Stevens. Turkish aid issue simmers By JIM ADAMS Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — A continuing showdown between President Ford and Congress looms on the issue of cutting off ., U.S. militaiy^id;te TUrke^T "Caught in ttie middle'are federal agencies that have been legally penniless since Sept. 30, some of which may already be unable to meet full payrolls. Ford is leaning in the direction of a second veto of legislation to cut off military aid to Turkey, Press Secretary Ron Nessen said Wednesday night. Earlier Wednesday Congress voted to suspend aid to Turkey Dec. 10 or sooner if Turkey sends any more U.S. arms to its invasion force in Cyprus. Nessen said Ford's objection to this is the same as to the first bill. that it would "undermine delicate negotiations." The first measure contained an immediate ban on further military aid to Turkey. Despite the probable second veto, the House approved the latest aid cutoff 194 to 144 and the Senate passed it 45 to 23. Opponents of the Turkish aid vowed that if Congress could not override a second veto they would try to write an identical or similar cutoff to a new emergency spending resolution. The Turkish aid cutoff was tied to an emergency spending resolution for federal agencies. Employes in some agencies already may be doomed to receive paychecks next Tuesday for only one day's pay instead of a full two weeks. Opponents 'said the ban against Turkish re-arming of its Cyprus occupation forces was needed to guarantee that no further U.S. equipment goes to them before the Dec. 10 cutoff. . "During this period an avalanche of weaponry from every military warehouse in the continental United States could be sent to Turkey . and that equipment could be transshipped to Cyprus to further fortify their forces there and make their stay more permanent," said Sen. Thomas F. Eagleton, D- Mo. Eagleton served notice that he and other opponents would filibuster any compromise that, as he put it, would be a "testimonial for the Turks." But House and Senate leaders including Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield said such a ."precipitous cutoff" could endanger U.S.-Turkey relations and hamper U.S. efforts to bring negotiations for reduction or withdrawal of the Turkish troops from Cyprus. "Wilburn isn't that kind of fellow." Caroline Meade, who shares her home with the GOP White County office, said some longtime county residents were not surprised about the incident. Mrs, Petty was told Sunday by a White County farm woman, "Now, when you get to Washington, we don't want to hear any of these antics," according to Mrs. Meade. Mrs. Meade said support for Mrs. Petty was growing, but, like Mrs. Petty, Mrs. Meade said the increase was due mainly to Mrs. Petty's stand on issues and public dissatisfaction with inflation, not to the Mills incident. US. Park Police at Washington stopped Mills' speeding, uh- lighted car, which Mills was not driving, at 2 a.m. Oct. 7. Police said he was intoxicated. A woman in the car, Annabel Battistella, later identified as an ex-stripper, plunged into the nearby Tidal Basin, a backwater of the Potomac River, and was pulled from the water by police.

WASHINGTON (Ai>) - Despite some misgivings, the administration's top housing official is urging President Ford to sign a bill earmarking $7.75 billion in federal money to help home buyers. However, James T. Lynn, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, warned in a session with reporters Wednesday that it will be some time before the housing industry can revive. The industry currently is starting new homes at a rate equivalent to 1.13 million units for the whole year. Even with new federal money, which would come on top of $19 billion in federal funds al' ready pumped Into the housing 'market, Lynn said he expects it to be 1975 before construction activity picks up. • And even with helpful developments in the economy, new 1 starts next year probably will ; be below the 2 million units Lynn's agency has estimated are needed annually to provide the nation with decent housing. The housing aid legislation, which represents the first response by Congress to Ford's economic proposals last week, would authorize the govern- 'meht to use its borrowing muscle to provide below-mar-. ket loans for home buyers. The version sitting on Ford's desk contains a formula that pegs the interest rate for home buyers to the rates the Treasury pays for its money. Lynn said he would have preferred complete flexibility in setting interest rates, but despite the formula in the bill, "on balance, its advantages outweigh its disadvantages." Ford had said in his econonv ic address that he is prepared to pump $13 billion into the housing market quickly to provide enough loans to cover 100,000 new houses at a cost to the government of $150 million at current interest rates. Lynn said he will wall to sec what developments occur in the housing and money market? before deciding whether to recommend spending any more of the authorized money, Meanwhile, the federal Home Loan Bank Board announced that the average purchase price of a new home jumped by $2,900 to $43,100 in September. And the effective interest rate on home loans rose to an average of 9.2 per cent compared to 9.09 per cent a month later. That means the average home purchased last month required an $11,600 down payment and monthly payments of $258 over 26 years. A year ago, the average new house cost $9,000 down and $210 a month for JJ7 years.
