18 liREELEY (Coto.) TRIBUNE M««-. Murctg, 1|7« Ice storms hit two Great Lakes states By Unite* Pnw Iitcnutlful It wi« back to reading by candlelight and milking cows by hand today for thousands of residents in Wisconsin and Michigan because of an ice storm that snapped power lines like thread and left them without electricity. Some roads in Wisconsin's Washington County, littered with tree branches and deadly wires felled by ice from last week's storm, also remained closed. About 200 National Guardsmen manned barricades to divert traffic from the dangerous roads. A county official also said all schools and nonessential industry would remain closed today. Dairy farmers in both Michigan and Wisconsin had to dump unrcfrigcrated milk during the weekend and milked cows by hand to prevent them from going dry. Wisconsin authorities said at least 15 persons who tried makeshift measures for heating and cooking had been treated for carbon monoxide poisoning. Charcoal burners should be used indoors only in a properly ventilated fireplace, health officials said. Mrs. Bea Luckcnbach of Birmingham, Mich., said it was exciting at first living like pioneen. But, she said, "The romance hu gone out of candlelight." In southern Michigan, winds and flooding rivers hampered utility workers in their round- the-clock efforts to restore power. "It's going to be almost like starting from scratch and building a whole system," said Chuck Heidel, Detroit Edison executive vice president. In Michigan, Detroit Edison had about 100,000 customers without power. Consumers Power reported another 58,000 without service. Officials said most power should be restored today, but about 44,000 customers probably would remain without power as late as Thursday. Wisconsin Power and Light Co. said it had about 80,000 customers without power on Friday, but by Sunday night had reduced that number to about 11,000. Wisconsin Power also was optimistic power could be restored to most of the other customers by tonight, if the WMther held. A company Bobby J.

MAY WASHINGTON (UPD-- Congressional efforts to create jobs for unemployed Americans are in a state of confusion. Democrats, who have made year goal, have no overall plan but instead several piecemeal proposals. Republicans have a plan ot their own. The proposals are scattered among three senate committees and several house committees, all working independently. The Senate Public Works Committee was meeting today to consider reviving at least part of a $G.2 billion public works employment bill which President Ford vetoed last month. The house voted to override but the senate fell three votes short of the two- thirds needed to enact it over lite president's JisaptJtuval. Some supporters want to revive the bill intact and are lobbying to try to change those three votes and have a new veto fight with Ford. It is more likely that one of several proposed scaled-down versions will emerge from the committee. They include a $2.1 billion version the committee approved last year and several in which the amount of federal funds would depend on the unemployment level or on the rate of activity in the private construction industry. The Senate Banking Committee It. cuibidering a $750 million bill, favored by the administration, designed to create 63,000 jobs by adding to an existing community development program. It is opposed by the AFL-CIO and lobbyists for city governments as not enough. The Senate Labor Committee is considering a $6 billion bill, already approved by the house, to increase the number of public service jobs. Kissinger awaits Nixon's report ATLANTA XTI; - Sectary of Stale Henry Kissinger says he is anxiously awaiting former President Richard Nixon's rcpnrl on his recent trip to China even though he disapproved of the visit and Nixon did not consult him beforehand. During a news conference Saturday, Kissinger said he would be interested in gelling a report from anyone who spent 10 hours talking with Chinese leaders. He said that since no one in the administration has spoken with Chairman Mao Tse Tung or the present prime minister since the death of Chou En Lai, "it is of course-of interest lo us" what these leaders told Nixon. Former Secretary of State Dean Rusk, moderator of the press conference agreed. "If I or any other private citizen had spent time talking with the leaders of the Peoples Republic of China, you would be interested in hearing what we had to .say, uuulil you nut?" hu asked.

He said he disagreeed with Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz., that Nixon might have broken the law by conducting negotiations with foreign leaders. He also disagreed with Goldwater that Nixon should have stayed in China. "Since Mr. Nixon has returned lo San Clemente, I think that question is moot," he said. Kissinger said Nixon did not consult him about the trip and did nol inform the administration of his travel plans until : publicly juat befui't: llic announced. The secretary also issued another sharp warning to Cuba and the Soviet Union that the United States "will not accept any further Cuban military adventures" in other parts of the world. He warned that "the Soviet Union must consider that any policy of relaxed tensions is incompatible with the massive introduction of armaments and continued encouragement of this kind of turmoil." Kissinger's remarks were in response to queslions about the position of the United States regarding the activily of Cuban forces in Angola.
