Congress Makes It Clear They Like Ford’s Style Camden (Ark.) Camden News — Tuesday August 13, 1974 — 3 WASHINGTON (AP) - Congress has made clear it welcomes a honeymoon with Presi dent Ford. But many member; say that even though they like his style, the marriage may be rocky unless progress is made in fighting inflation. Ford’s two new economic initiatives—recreating the Cost of Living Counril and calling an economic summit meeting —received widespread if somewhat conditional applause after the new President’s address Monday night to a joint session of Congress. House and Senate members, however, had nothing but praise for Ford’s candor, his promise to put an end to covert wiretapping and surveillance and his pledge of “communication, conciliation, cooperation and compromise” with the Congress. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D- Mass., said Ford’s accession to the presidency and the tone of his speech marks the end of Watergate as a political issue on which Democrats can successfully draw. The fact that it was Ford standing at the podium of the House of Representatives instead of the just resigned President Nixon appeared to please most of his former colleagues. “He was the Jerry Ford we all know, a warm human being despite the aura of his high office,“ said House Democratic Leader Thomas P. O’Neill Jr., of Massachusetts. “There's a great sense in this hall tonight of wishing him well and cooperating," Kennedy said. “It looks as though we’re moving from an era of confrontation to one of cooperation,” said Sen. Lloyd Bentsen, D-Tex. “It was a bellringer,” said Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott who earlier had said his job had not been fun for two years and that he hoped it soon would be again. Abner Riddick Abner Riddick, 73, formerly of Stephens died Monday in a Vivian, La., hospital. Funeral services are tentatively set for Wednesday afternoon in Vivian. Graveside services will be held in the Riddick Cemetery near Stephens. Survivors include his wife; one son, Rudolph Riddick of Shreveport; two daughters, Ann Butler of Shreveport and June Riddick of Houston, Tex.; two brothers, William Riddick of Stephens and Herbert Riddick of Crowley, La., four sisters, Mrs. Josie White and Mrs. Dewey Merritt, both of Stephens; and Mrs. Dixie Brigham and Mrs. Bonnie Lee Rogers, both of Troy. Charles H. Butcher Charles H. Butcher, 35, of Route 1, Camden, died Sunday as a result of an accidental drowning. Funeral services were held at 10 a.m. Tuesday in Proctor Chapel. Burial was in Memorial Park Cemetery under the direction of Proctor Funeral Home. Mr Butcher was a member of White City Baptist Church. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Louise Butcher; two daughters, Lenora and Laura Lea, of the home; and by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Roscoe Butcher of Camden. But many Democrats and some Republicans said that when Ford refines his stands, he will get the opposition he expects on many issues. Many agreed that inflation is the nation’s No. 1 enemy but said they did not believe the new President can balance the budget in fiscal 1976 without cutting deeply into Pentagon spending. Sen. Walter F. Mondale, D- Minn., termed Ford’s economic ideas “disturbing,’ and “half- formed." Two Harvard University economists reacted cautiously and somewhat skeptically. John Kenneth Galbraith, an economic adviser to former President John F. Kennedy, said Ford appeared to be relying on the same policies and advisers used by former President Richard M. Nixon. James S. Duesenberry, chairman of the Harvard economics department, said he was skeptical of Ford's pledge to balance the federal budget within two years. The Senate’s youngest Democrat, Joseph Biden of Delaware, said: “The important thing is his downplaying of the imperial side of the office. There will be a lot of fights in the Ford administration. But they’ll be good, honest, clean fights. No one will try to intimidate you or watch your office or bug your phone. “That’s what I find so refreshing,’’ Biden said. “He’s got a gut instinct for what the country needs most.” TUESDAY Weight Watchers meet at 6 p.m. at the First Baptist Church.

Jiminez Cantu said the plan would go into effect immediately until 1984. One of the main goals of the plan is to reduce infant mortality through massive vaccinations against measles and smallpox. Although he did not cite specific figures. Jimenez Cantu noted that 1,000 children have died so far this year from measles He said the measles death rate has been reduced from 11,000 a year only five years ago through regional vaccination plans. The plan would also encompass government-financed birth control information to married couples to reduce the birth rate estimated at 3.5 per cent a year, Jimenez Cantu said. He said that by 1984 the rate will have been reduced to 2.5 per cent annually. Beginning in 1975, he added, the government will recruit 1.000 newly-graduated doctors annually in universities around the nation for service in poverty-ridden communities j mill in mu in h CALLING ALL 1 HOMt MAKERS \ HOW TO TIE IN i LIVING ROOMS I 1 AND DINING ROOMS 1 and high school, 3:10 p.m. Lunches will be served in the cafeter la at 40 cents per day foi students and 55 cents per day for May 15, teachers' workday; May 16, report cards out. end of fourth nine weeks (46 days), Commencement.

RIVAL EMOTIONS Fear and anger are opposing emotions. For fear is introvertive and makes its victim worry about his own skin. But anger is extrover- tive and turns your attention upon the enemy, whotfn you’d then like to grapple, barehanded. So you can actually change fear to rage in a few second« of time, as by the Next, they were hypnotized and told they were very weak, teeble, sickly and anemic; then urged to grip the machine as hard as possible.

In our normal waking state, we may not quite attain the depths or the heights possible under hypnosis.
