Elsewhere, showers and thundershowers were scattered along the middle Atlantic Coast and through the Great Basin and in Wyoming. In the West, northerly winds swept cool, moist air down the Pacific Coast, which was under cloudy skies. Temperatures before dawn ranged from 83 at Needles, Calif., to 35 at Houlton and Limestone in Maine. T 8-year-old fulfilled her dream WORRICK, Mo. (AP) - Kathy Roberts was determined to graduate from high school, despite the fact that she had cystic fibrosis. "I know that one day 1 will die," she said, "but until that day comes I am leading a life as normal as any other teenager." The 18-year-old girl fulfilled her dream and graduated on May 16 from Orrick High School, tears rolling down her cheeks around the oxygen mask she had to wear. News stories about her determination brought her and her parents, Mr. and Mrs. William C. Roberts, hundreds of letters from well-wishers. She wrote a letter last Thursday to the Kansas City Star, thanking people for their concern and telling them of her efforts to live a normal life. The letter was printed Tuesday, Kathy died Monday at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, about 20 miles west of here. Funeral services were scheduled for today. FINK, Tex. (AP) - "Oscar's getting pretty deaf," said Mrs. Oscar L. Fink, "But that won't keep him away from Fink on National Fink Day. He's been busy making Fink fiddles, Fink wagons and Fink walking canes." National Fink Day comes on Thursday, June 20 during National Fink Week, of course. And Oscar Fink, this town's 87- year-old poet laureate, is getting his annual Fink poem ready, despite reports he's been ailing recently. Patricia Albright, mayor of the tiny town near Lake Texoma says this year's Fink Week celebration will feature a Fink Folk Festival with everything from an old-fashioned quilting bee to exhibits of buttons and barbed wire. Most of the action during Fink Week, which starts June 17, will happen on National Fink Day. Anyone can attend, but the special guests are named Fink, Funcks, Finkes, Finques, Funks or Phinques. It's also the day when Fink holds "our usual free barbecue blast," sayd Mrs. Albright. "If the crowd gets much bigger than last year," says Willard Albright, the mayor's husband, "I may have to go steal a cow to feed all the folks." Mayor Albright says: "Fink really is growing. We have two stores and service stations, a doctor's office, city hall, Fink museum and we have a rodeo area under construction that is due to open with its inaugural rodeo on National Fink Week." She said the population probably has almost doubled over a year ago and should be a baker's dozen now. The mayor says she doesn't like this "mushrooming growth" that has gripped Fink the past year. "It brings too many problems," she says. "We're starting to get the big city burglars in Fink. They broke into the Fink Museum and made off with Willard's gun collection, then broke into my office and stole two rolls of half dollars, a pair of binoculars and Willard's powder horn."

Gen. Michael Davison said no net reductions in U.S. arms strength in Europe are in the works. Davison's statement in an interview countered persistent reports that the United States would cut total U.S. strength in Europe by about 20,000 support troops. "The whole name of the game is to plow back manpower savings into improved combat capability," Davison said. At the same time, he disputed other reports that have suggested the United States might reduce sharply its tactical nuclear weapons in Europe. Davison said U.S. tactical nuclear weaponry in Europe is under study constantly and that the number of such weapons could be adjusted but that he expects nothing of any significance to develop in the way of changed deployments. At present, the United States has about 7,000 nuclear bombs, shells and other tactical-type weapons there. Dean was related to Hoffa case WASHINGTON (AP) — Former White House counsel John W. Dean HI says he suggested the pardon restriction that bars ex-Teamsters chief James R. Hoffa from union activities until 1980. In a deposition disclosed Tuesday, Dean testified that he recommended the stipulation in a memorandum submitted to President Nixon before Hoffa was granted executive clemency and released from federal prison Dec. 23,1971. Hoffa, who served less than five years of a 13-year term for jury tampering and mail fraud, has filed a civil suit to lift the ban. The suit alleges that the prohibition on union involvement grew out of a conspiracy between Teamsters President Frank E. Fitzsimmons and Charles W. Colcon, who was hired as the union's counsel after leaving the White House. However, Dean said he acted alone in recommending the pardon stipulation, without consulting Colson. A hearing on the government's motion to dismiss the Hoffa suit is scheduled June 5. The commander of 190,000 U.S. soldiers, most of them in Germany, Davison said he had returned to Washington to brief the Army headquarters staff on progress in streamlining headquarters and support elements.
