Cilizen photos by Lew EUiotl By Pentagon agency Cutoff planned in disaster aid WASHINGTON (AP) _ The Pentagon's civil defense agency plans to get out of the business of helping states and localities prepare for natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes and tornadoes. As a result, the states, cities and counties stand to lose millions of dollars a year in matching federal funds. More than 6,000 state and local employes would be affected in some way, officials say. The move reverses a course taken less than four years ago. In May 1972, then-Defense Secretary Melvin R. Laird ordered the agency to help deal with natural disasters "in keeping with the President's policy of making the federal government more responsive to the needs of state and local governments." Among other things, federal contributions have enabled some localities to keep emergency operations centers open 24 hours a day for such purposes as dispatching police and fire forces. But, under pressure to trim spending, the White House Office of Management and Budget reportedly insisted that the civil defense agency limit itself to preparing for possible nuclear disaster. As a result, the Pentagon reduced its budget request for civil defense by $16 million to $71 million in the coming fiscal year. In line with this, the Pentagon has informed Congress that "reductions will be made in matching funds assistance to state and local agencies, staff personnel in state and local emergency preparedness agencies, procurement of e m e r g e n c y v e h i c l e s and equipment . . . used for peace- One Pentagon official said word of the planned change --,-., u -^ ,«i ^ tu ^ c has caused "quite a lot of dis- time community rescue opera- tress" to local and state au- lions, and 'construction funds thorities. for emergency operating centers in areas which have a low In the past, the Pentagon has claimed that preparalion for natural disaster situations has enhanced the ability of civil defense organizations to handle such problems as relocating people, which would be necessary in event of a nuclear war threat. probability of being directly affected by nuclear attack." In addition to trimming its subsidy of state and local civil defense payrolls, the Pentagon plans about a one-third cut in its 653 employes at agency headquarters and eight regional offices. Sunday spruce up There wasn't much rest yesterday for students at Advance Beauty College's three Tucson schools as 1,500 to 2,000 persons showed up for 50-cent haircuts. The cut-rate cuts were done to raise money for Casa de los Ninos Crisis Nursery. Among those who waited in line -- some for as long as two hours -were 4^-year-old Robin Dornon (top) who met Elizabeth Reid (with scissors). George Delavara and Annette Gastellum worked with fc-month-old Ronnie Watts, who wasn't sure that a haircut was what he wanted. Gerry G. Rage, owner of the beauty schools, said about $1,100 was raised through the 50-eent fee, lips and donations. So many people jammed the schools that about 210 had to be turned away, Rage said. Annexation bill aimed at ending in-city 'islands' WASHINGTON (DPI) -The State Department is concerned, but publicly silent, about reports from security experts in Moscow that the U.S. Embassy is being exposed to microwave radiation. Authoritative sources said yesterday the Uniled States is seeking an explanation from the Soviet Foreign Ministry about the reported microwave bombardment. Although the situation has been known to American technical experts for a month or more, the United States so far has received no satisfactory explanation, the sources said. President Ford, asked about the reports while campaigning in New Hampshire yesterday, said: "I do not think it is a matter that should be dis- cussed at this time. If it is true, it is a very serious situation." The State Department news office had no comment on the report yesterday, and department officials involved in U.S.-Soviet relations have been instructed not to discuss the report. One official said he could not comment on the report but also indicated he was not denying it. The problem first came to light when Robert Toth, Moscow correspondent of the Los Angeles Times, reported that U.S. Ambassador Walter J. Stoessel convened a secret briefing last Friday to discuss the situation with embassy personnel. Stoessel was reported to News Capsules j By LES SCHLANGEN PHOENIX -(AP) -- The House Counties and Municipalities Committee is wrestling with a bill which would empower cities to annex "islands" within their borders over which they now have no control. With the rapid growth of the past two decades, Arizona cities have frequently expanded their borders while leaving untouched pockets of resistance where property owners- objected to being absorbed. In some cases, it made no difference that a majority of residents favored the incorporation. Like similar unsuccessful efforts of the past, the bill seeks to change the law which requires approval of residents who own 51 per cent of the assessed valuation before any new territory can be annexed. Cities large and small have been frustrated in efforts to prepare for future growth beyond their borders and control parts of what they already have as a result of the law. Urged by the League of Arizona Cities and Towns, the proposal would allow cities to annex by ordinance any unincorporated area surrounded by a municipality or more than one municipality. Opponents view the proposal as an ogre poised to devour the holdout territories and their residents. "This is an unfair bill," said Joe Ralston, a Phoenix attorney representing Chandler in a dispute between that city and Tempe over an annexed strip between the two cities. "Cities are playing an annexation game and when they can't get 51 per cent of the residents, they go around them and then come back and try to annex the territory," objected Ralston. Jack DeBolske, executive director of the League of Arizona Cities, said the current law provides a haven for those who enjoy all the benefits of urban life without paying the taxes. "The most famous islands. Mrs. Kissinger recovering BOSTON (AP) -- Nancy Kissinger was in good condition today, recovering from an operation in which 40 per cent of her stomach was removed. Mrs. Kissinger, 41, underwent the surgery Saturday at Massachusetts General Hospital to remove an ulcer that had troubled her for nine years. Doctors said the operation went well and "there were no surprises." 'Zebra' trial nears end SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The 12-month-Iong "Zebra" murder trial - aftermath of a frightening series of racial attacks that shocked the nation two years ago -- is expected to go lo the jury this week. The murder and conspiracy trial of four young black men has been one of the longest criminal trials in California history. After more than 200 days in court and testimony from 181 witnesses, Superior Court Judge Joseph Karesh hopes to hear the last defense summation-this week and sequester the jury to deliberate a verdict. of course, are the Phoenix -m/g . , Country Club, Camelback Inn Marriage, lOVC Or UOt and Mountain Shadows," said DeBolske. "It gives them a disproportionate advantage over other taxpayers." DeBolske cited Flagstaff as probably the state's municipal hopscotch champion, with 17 islands within its borders. VATICAN CITY (UPI) - Pope Paul VI said today that marriages must last even if love fades. In an annual address to judges of the Vatican's court of appeals, the tribunal of the Sacred Roman Rota, the Pope said once a couple has validly said, I do," it is committed forever. Denouncing permissiveness by some church courts, the Pontiff said considering love the standard for deciding if a marriage survives would in effect lead to divorce, which the Roman Catholic Church forbids RED WHITE BLUE FUR 4 98 Yd. 60" wide plush 100% Acrylic Regular 5.98 yd.

There has been speculation that the radiation is intended to activate hidden microphones in the embassy building, to intefere with the American anti-jamming devices, or -- according to a more sinister explanation -- to induce a state of lethargy or depression among U.S. diplomats. The embassy was reportedly bombarded with microwaves in the early 1960's in a similar incident, the sources said. Science Magazine reported in September, 1972, that the Defense Department subsequently had requested the Advanced Research Products Agency to study what effects low-level microwave radiation But the magazine reported that the experiments proved to be inconclusive.
