Henry's trip encouraging WASHINGTON (AP) - President Ford, preparing for his first official journey overseas, says Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger returned from his 17-country trip with "very encouraging" news. . Ford and Kissinger discussed the secretary's 18-day trip for three hours Sunday at Camp David, Md. They plan to confer about two hours each day this week in preparation for Ford's Far East visit. The President and Kissinger depart for the Far East next Sunday. Ford said he was "looking forward to a constructive trip to Japan, South Korea and to the Soviet Union." Standing on the White House lawn with Kissinger after flying back from Camp David, Ford said the secretary of state brought back from the Middle East "some encouraging news" and that Kissinger's meeting with Soviet leader Leonid I. Brezhnev "was very helpful." c Kissinger returned to Washington Saturday expressing confidence that his trip had helped chances for peace in the Middle East and agreement with the Soviet Union to limit nuclear arms. Ford also told newsmen that Kissinger's talks in India, Bangladesh and Pakistan had been "very helpful in redirecting our policy in that vitally important area of the world." Turning to Kissinger, Ford said he wanted to "personally thank you, very much," and noted "the superhuman effort the secretary has made." Kissinger spent the first four days of his trip in Moscow and then made a swing through Italy, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Israel, Iran and Svria. —Frank King photo with Star camera Holiday Inn.

Galley still considers himself a lieutenant COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) — William L. Calley Jr., free on bail and unlikely to be confined ever again for the My Lai murders, still considers himself a lieutenant in the U.S. Army, his lawyers say. Calley, 31, was released on his own recognizance Saturday by U.S. District Court Judge J. Robert Elliott, the same judge who two months earlier had overturned Galley's conviction for killing 22 Vietnamese civilians at My Lai in 1968. His lawyers said Sunday that Galley's next legal step will be to inform the Army this week that he still considers himself a lieutenant in the U.S. Army and is available for duty. The Army discharged Calley last spring/'But his 'lawyers contend that the discharge was a result of his court-martial conviction and should be voided because the conviction was overturned. ""The dismissal was a direct result of his conviction; the conviction was unconstitutional; therefore, it would appear that all things proceeding from the cconviction are likewise unconstitutional," said J. Houston Gordon, one of Galley's lawyers. Gordon said Sunday that Calley will give the Army a chance to call him back to active duty before he seeks other employment to avoid prejudicing any future claims he may have on backpay, benefits or damages for three years in jail on a conviction which later was reversed. If Calley ultimately is cleared by higher courts, Gordon said it is almost definite Calley will take legal action seeking "back City League meeting set HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) The recurring issue of state turnback funds for local governments will be discussed next week when the Arkansas Municipal League meets for its 40th annual convention. Delegates are to discuss how much money they plan to seek in turnback funds from the 1975 Arkansas Legislature. Last year, $31 million was allocated to Arkansas cities through the federal Community Development Act. At issue, however, has been the league's efforts to get the legislature to designate a set percentage of turnback funds for the local governments.- Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., and Lt. Gov.-elect Joe Purcell are scheduled to address the Nov. 17-19 convention. Mills, re-elected to a 19th term in Congress last week, is to address a noon session on Nov. 19, and Purcell is to speak at a luncheon the next day. Mayor Oran Gragson of Las Vegas, a former resident of Mansfield in Scott County, is to address the newly elected city officials at a banquet on Nov. 17. pay, allowances "and anything else to which he may be due." However, Kenneth Benson, another Calley lawyer, said Calley has no desire to go into thp Army "as far as I know." The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans will consider in February the Army's aopeal of the reversal of Galley's court martial conviction. Both sides say they will go to the U.S. Supreme Court if they lose at the appellate level. But Gordon, noting that the Army plans to parole Calley on Nov. 19, says, "even if the appeals court overturns Elliott's reversal, Calley will never again have to face con- finment."

Warning of severe measures follows riot TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) Sum dwellers rioted in protest against the government's new austerity program, but Premier Yitzhak Rabin warned that more severe measures will come soon. The premier said in a televised speech Sunday that since the war last year, "arms have poured into the Arab countries and we have had to confront this increased strength. "This will not be the last step," he declared. "We have to face all the struggles — military, political, economic and social. I do not claim for a minute that we have solved these problems." To halt the drain on Israel's foreign currency reserves, the government early Sunday devalued the pound 43 per cent; increased the prices of food, gasoline and electricity; froze wages; put a six-month ban on imports of cars, shoes, television sets, tape recorders, beer and cement; levied new taxes on overseas travel, banks, insurance companies and capital gains. The price of milk jumped from 15 to 25 cents a quart. Sugar tripled, from 16 to 48 cents a pound. Gasoline increased from $1.53 to $1.75 a gallon. , The pound dropped from 4.20 to 6.00 to the dollar. Treasury officials said the program would add about 17 per cent to the cost of living, which already has risen 34 per cent this year. Many people expected something of the sort and for the past week have been stocking up at supermarkets and gas stations. But in Tel Aviv's Hak- tiva slum area hundreds of rioters smashed windows Sunday, looted stores, wrecked 10 buses, stoned police and chanted slogans against the austerity program. Border troops were rushed in to aid the police. The police arrested 15 youths and one man they said instigated the outburst. There were no reports of any casualties. * OPENING SPECIALS* KOLANTYL GEL Size Reg.*l " CEPACOL Mouthwash HOZSiie Reg. 39 89 HEAD & SHOULDERS SHAMPOO Ascriptiri 100's 69 •••••I CLINIC PHARMACY INC CORNER OF THIRD & PINE IN NEW HOPE CLINIC BUILDING HOLIDAY INN INTRODUCES our own Daily Double FEA TURING SHISHKEBABS *6.00 for doubles—'3.75 for singles (Includes top sirloin strips, green salad, baked potato, asparagus spears & hot rolls) Wednesday night November 13,1974 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. | «. mm^mmmmmmmmmm^m^m m _ _ _ J|
