' v '" Â·* KiÂ»ipÂ»l, Montana Temper Zone Hockey violence is expected to be on the agenda of the National Hockey League's annual meeting this week. The meeting nearly coincides with the scheduled court appearances of four Philadelphia Flyers players charged with assault in Toronto, Canada, during the Stanley Cup finals in April. The charges were the results of two penalty-riddled games during which the Flyers accumulated a total of 257 minutes in the penalty box, and their opponents 165 minutes. In addition to the four players, aToronto fan also was charged with assault during the series. DO YOU KNOW - What is the nameof theToronto National Hockey League team?

Inc. 1976 'ord take look at issues WASHINGTON (AP) - President Fdrd says parents should have the ri|bt to send their children to segregated private schools as long as the schools do DO* receive federal aid. Ford said Sunday be supports integration and noted that his own children attended integrated schools, but said, "I think the individual ought to have a right to send his daughter or his son to a private school if he's willing to pay whatever the cost might be." The President, asked on CBS' "Face the Nation" if he approved a private school's refusing to admit black students, replied, "Individuals have rights. I would hope they wouldn't, but individuals have a right where they're willing to make the choice themselves, and there are no taxpayer funds involved." But "if they get federal aid," he said, "that's a totally different question and I certainly would not, under those circumstances, go along with segregated schools." Ford's position is at.odds with the Justice Department's stand on private white academies. In a case before the Supreme Court involving two white schools in northern Virginia's suburbs, the department asked the court in April to outlaw racial segregation in private schools. The President also reiterated that he plans to seek legislation soon to limit the amount of busing a federal court could order to desegregate schools. The legislation that the Justice Department is drawing up would limit busing to areas "where the local school board, by its act, has violated the constitutional rights of individuals," Ford said. It would not "permit the court to go beyond the instances where the (students') rights have been violated."In recent years, some, suburbs have been. included in desegregation plans because of segregation in inner-city areas. Ford said his legislation "will minimize in many cases to a substantial degree the amount of court-ordered forced busing." On other issues, Ford coutinued to criticize Ronald Reagan's foreign policy stands. In an interview with The Associated Press, Ford said "guerrilla warfare would almost be inevitable" in Panama "if we were to break off (treaty) negotiations, which is the implication of my opponent's policies." Ford also said he approved an ad used in his California campaign that implies Reagan might get the United States in- volved la a war in Rhodesia if he weÂ« President. In the Â«ti a voice says, "Remember, Gov. Reagan couldn't (tart a war. President Reagan could." The Ford campaign began using the ads after Reagan said Wednesday the United States and Britain might act as mediators between Rhodesia's ruling white government and its black majority citizens. "... whether you'd have to go in with occupation forces or not, I don't know," Reagan said. Later, Reagan said be misstated his position and insisted, "I nave no intention of involving the United States in anything that would provoke conflict, or involve this country in conflict." But Ford and his camp seized on Reagan's initial statement. In several campaign stops in New Jersey and Ohio Sunday, the President boasted that be had "no intention whatsoever -- no reason for it -- to commit U.S. troops to southern Africa." Ford told The AP: "The Ford administration hag sought on every occasion to negotiate rather than to actually confront. We have not overreacted to situations such as Panama, such as Rhodesia. It is my understanding that my opponent has made some statements that I think overreact to Â· speculative sltwtioa." Â· On "Face the Nation," Ford modulated his criticism of Reagai. "Sometimes in the heat of Â· political campaign, statements are made that on cool reflection candidates wished they hadn't said," observed Ford. "I think when you get into that Oval Office," be added, "... it does make you far more responsible than you are when you're out on (he political hustings." On other issues, Ford said: -ECONOMY: "It's getting better every week." Reagan's charge that inflation will climb next year is "political rhetoric.... (Experts) agree that our economy or economic recovery Is healthy and that it is going to continue." -LEBANON: "The United States government is opposed to any military intervention in Lebanon," Including Syria's intervention. -WARREN COMMISSION: He favors reopening a limited Investigation of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy to establish a motive for the attack. --DETENTE: "The dropping of the word has not changed the process. The process is one of trying to relax tensions between the Soviet Union and the United States by negotiation rather than confrontation. The net result has been that we are making headway." Reagan presses faltering defense to Carl Albert WASHINGTON (AP) - Thomas P. "Tip" O'Neill Jr. was speaker of Massachusetts' House of Representatives before he was elected to Congress in 2952. Soon the burly Irish-American politician is likely to wear that title in the U.S. House of Representatives. O'Neill, 63, is the heir-apparent to Speaker Carl Albert of Oklahoma, who announced Saturday he will not seek re-election. O'Neill, the House Democratic majority leader, said over the weekend he would formally announce his candidacy for speaker today. But it is considered a foregone conclusion that O'Neill will assume the post next January, provided that the Democrats retain their majority over Republicans in the November election. A scramble is expected among several Democrats, however, to succeed O'Neill as majority leader. Among those vying for the post are assistant leader John J. McFal! and party caucus chairman Phillip Burton, both of California, and Richard Boiling of Missouri. The diminutive Albert, 68, speaker for six years and a congressman for nearly 30 years, cited his age in announcing his retirement plans. Connelly proves party favorite WASHINGTON (AP) John B. Connally, the former treasury secretary, Democrat and Texas governor who was acquitted in a milk-fund bribery trial, is the person most m e n t i o n e d by Republican convention delegates as their choice for vice president. Associated Press interviews with about one-third of the 2,259 GOP delegates finds Connally the choice of nearly one-quarter of those expressing a preference for the vice presidential nomination. However, about six delegates in every ID declined to state a choice for the No. 2 spot this far in advance of the convention. The bulk of Cormally's s u p p o r t c a m e ' f r o m delegates backing Ronald Reagan for president. He also had clusters of backing from delegates committed to President Ford and from delegates not yet committed to a presidential nominee. While the interviews showed this support for Connally as a running mate, they also showed there is apparently no chance that any third candidate could wrest the presidential nomination in the event of a Ford-Reagan deadlock where a few uncommitted delegates held a balance of power. This conclusion arises because a s u f f i c i e n t number of Ford delegates say Reagan is their second choice for president and v i c e - v e r s a . T h u s , a deadlock seemingly would be broken by enough delegates switching from one side to the other, rather than find a new candidate. A m o n g 2 2 2 R e a g a n delegates interviewed, Ford is the second choice for presidential nominee of 119, or over half. Among 359 Ford d e l e g a t e s , Retgan is the second choice of about one- quarter, but more than half would not name any second choice. LOS ANGELES (AP) - Ronald Reagan, pressing his campaign argument that U.S. defenses have faltered, says that if the Soviet Union moved in Western Europe, the United States could be left with no recourse but" the one thing that none of us wants at all, the nuclear button. "The day we push the nuclear button, we know that we do not have the nuclear superiority we once bad, we don't even have parity," the former California governor said in an interview with The Associated Press. Reagan said the Russians are now "in the position of being more truculent and aggressive with the use of conventional arms, knowing that there is virtually no way we can prevent this ..." But President Ford said every military official he depends on believes that the United States "has the military capability to carry out any assigned mission." Reagan, campaigning for California primary election Tuesday, said he could not set a figure on the defense spending he would recommend as president. He said he has confidence in the spending levels advocated by former Secretary of Defense James R. Schlesinger.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Prices for frozen orange juice concentrate probably will be forced down by inventories millions of gallons larger than first reported, citrus industry spokesmen say. Industry experts said understated inventories could cost growers as much as $8 million, with wholesale prices falling as much as 15 cents on a dozen six-ounce cans of the frozen concentrate. That could mean a drop of a penny a can or more at the supermarket. The Florida Canners Association announced the new Inventory figures over the weekend and said it would conduct an immediate inquiry. "Based on statistical data reported to us, it appears the inventory of bulk (frozen concentrated orange juice) may have been between two million gallons and five million gallons greater than our past reports have shown," the association said. "We have initiated steps to enable us to determine the correct figures." There were predictions that wholesale orange juice concentrate prices could fall as early as next week. 11,500 BTU QUICK-MOUNT WINDOW AIR CONDITIONER 3-speed model has energy saving submarine coil, auto, de-icer, exhaust air control.

Though Connally led the vice presidential choices among Reagan delegates, he was only fifth with the ford delegates. Among the n e a r l y h a l f of Ford delegates who expressed a running mate preference, precisely 25 per cent picked Reagan. Vice President Nelson A. Rockefeller, who took himself out of the running for renomination some months ago, was nonetheless the preference of about 15 per cent of Ford d e l e g a t e s s t a t i n g a preference.
