(AP) U.S. Rep. Wright Patman, D— Tex., has told President Ford that firing Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz "is the only way the confidence of the people can be restored that the federal government cares about farmers and ranchers." Patman said in a telegram sent to Ford Tuesday that "cattlemen and dairymen in my congressional district (East Texas) are in a desperate plight and they need immediate and direct action by the federal government." The veteran congressman continued, "I feel strongly that we need new leadership in these programs. Hope qualifies for special revenue sharing funds —Hope (Ark.) photo by Roger Head BETTY BUMPERS, wife of Governor Dale Bumpers, visits with Mary Pace and her children, Anthony, Alma and Cecile. Mrs. Bumpers was in Hope to promote the state-wide immunization drive in Arkansas. She visited the Hempstead County Health Unit Tuesday morning during her visit here. The Department of Housing and Urban Development, a federal agency, conducted a public meeting Tuesday at the Hope City Hall concerning the provisions of special revenue sharing for community development. In the course of the meeting, Sterling Cockrill, acting area director for the Little Rock office of HUD, said that the city of Hope would automatically qualify for $479,000 for the first year. Provisions for the special revenue sharing are set forth in the "Housing and Community Development Act of 1974," (HCD Public Act 93-383) which was recently signed into law by President Ford. When he signed the bill, Ford said that "this act will help return power from the banks of the Potomac to people in their own communities. Decisions will be made at the local level. Action will come at the local level and the responsibility for the results will be placed squarely where it belongs-at the local level." The purpose of the Act is to allow the special revenue funds be allocated to the cities that qualify and to use the money as they see fit within certain guidelines. Commenting about HUD involvement with the programs after the money is distributed, Cockrill said in his opening statement, "HUD will be available, on request only, to give you the benefit of our "expertise" to support your decisions. Should we attempt to direct or influence your planning, your priorities or your program, we will be in violation of our own regulations and the Congressional and Presidential intent of this new law." Provisions for use of the funds has not been finalized, but in the meeting, officials from the federal agency gave out copies of the Federal Register in which the proposed rules had been printed. The funds can be used for a variety of projects, including acquisition, construction, reconstruction, or installation of certain public works; preservation or restoration of historic sites, conservation of open spaces, natural resources and scenic areas; blighted or deteriorating lands and others. Activities falling into the ineligible category include, public facilities that are used for the general conduct of government, schools in general, transportation facilities and hospitals and other medical facilities with some exceptions as defined in the proposed rules. Other proposed regulations concerning application for funds, those cities available, and other program requirements are listed in the 16-page document. The HCD Act also requires that the recipients of these funds must assume certain responsibilities such as environmental factors, civil rights, citizen participation activities, labor standards, relocation considerations, and others. Cockrill warned those in attendance at the meeting about being taken in by the "simplicity" of the diminished regulations. "As we will explain in greater detail, there are numerous other laws and regulations relating to civil rights, environmental protections, labor legislation, relocation benefits and planning requirements that have been in existence for sometime and in no way are changed by the new HCD Act," Cockrill said. Frank Douglas, a member of the Hope city Board of Directors, was the only elected city official from Hope who attended the meeting.

HOWARD 6 killed on school bus ROCKMART, Ga. (AP) — A repair train backed into a loaded school bus today, killing at least five children and the bus driver, authorities reported. The state patrol said there were 26 children on the bus when the accident occurred about 8 a.m. at a railroad crossing near this northwest Georgia town. The patrol said there were at least six known dead. The Polk County coroner's office confirmed that one of those killed was the bus driver, identified as Billy Kellett. The bus was pinned beneath the train's caboose, which derailed and fell on top of the bus, according to witnesses. Witnesses said the repair train had been called to the scene of a derailment during the night and was backing up along the Southern Railway tracks with no one on the caboose . The witnesses said the train hit the school bus squarely and dragged it about 100 yards. Authorities said they were being hampered in their efforts to free the children from the bus by the crowd of worried parents who flocked to the scene.
