U'a-1 Th« Bee: DonviHe, Vo., Friday, October 3, 1969 Vote Down New Funds For Sheridan Tank *.; 'WASHINGTON (AP) -- The House--turning aside efforts to . .jcftbp $2 billion worth of other ".·Weapons projects--has voted to ·'· "X.ill "the trouble-plagued Sheri- '·· 'dan tank. *·" The proposal to end the $1 billion Sheridan program as soon · · a s the current contract is com, jpleted was shouted through the Tlouse Thursday with little des ' iba'te and no vote count. r,"' .The proposal was backed by ···'Af'med Services Chairman L. Mendel Rivers, D-SC., whose e concluded the tank's ammunition is danger- ai\d the tank itself was not i|vorth 'the time and cost of de- efforts by military spend- sejihg critics to cut money from e ...Safeguard antimissile sys- C5A supercargo plane, y; helicopters and missile *ijrograms were easily defeated ^-,'pne by one; ·eg The critics tried to cut the ^.projects from a ?21.35 billion a .C'thorization for procurement of *?|mlitar,y hardware. Rivers' committee already had cut $57.6 million from the Sheridan program, leaving only $15.2 million for completion of the present contract. It had urged the Army to correct the tank's problems--particularly the danger of ammunition explosions inside the tank --before it asks authority to buy any more. But the amendment shouted through Thursday would terminate the program entirely when the contract runs out. "This program has been a dismal failure, it's been a terrible mistake," said Rep. Delbert L. Latta, R-Ohio, who made the proposal. "It's a hazard to the people inside that tank," he continued in an interview. "This caseless ammunition can explode from bounding around. They told me this morning that land mines can set if ott." As final as the House language is, the decision could be reversed in future authorization bills if the Sheridan's problems were solved. A Senate bill authorizes the full $72.8 million requested for the Sheridan although Senate opponents have indicated they may try to block appropriation of the money if it is authorized. Cuts attempted by spending critics but defeated by the House Thursday would have trimmed: --All $345 million for deployment of the Safeguard antibal* listic missile system, leaving -"n- tact $400 million for research and development. --$1 billion above the administration's request for ships, added by Rivers to modernize the U. S. naval force. --$481 million for purchase of 23 additional C5A cargo planes. --$275 million for production of six carrier-based F-14 Navy fighters, a plane still in the development stage. --$86 million for 170 Cobra helicopters! --$77 million for the Short Range Attack Missile which has suffered development problems.

Siler City reported 4.11 inches of rain and Laurel Springs had exactly four inches of precipitation. Laurinburg had 3.85 inches, Rocky Mount recorded 3.01 inches and several localities in the state had around bwo inches of rainfall. The Weather Bureau said that in addition to the heavy rains a line of thunderstorms formec over the coastal .plain about mic afternoon T h u r s d a y which spawned a few small tornadoes One tornado did considerable damage in the Lake Gaston area from Vaughn to Batons Ferry. Others were reporter near WilliamsLon and Nashville but no deaths or injuries were reported in the storms. Mild temperatures prevailed over the state Thursday, with most high readings being around 80 degrees. During-the night skies became clear over western .and central counties but considerable cloudiness lin. gered along the coast. Lows in the 60s were common over most of the state during the night, Thursday's rain was a side effect of the tropical depression which moved north west of the Appalachians during the day. This morning this ; weak low center was over Pennsylvania. Another tropical, depression, Jenny, was moving toward the Atlantic Ocean and small craft warnings .were in effect from Palm Beach','Fla., to the North coast.'

The others are outside tests, and in nearly all the SC club is the underdog. Unbeaten Davidson is the closest thing to a favorite.

Moss Meeting Set On Passage Of Rights Law COLUMBIA (AP) --Members of minority .groups in South Carolina will hold a mass meeting in Columbia Oct. 12 to push for a state civil rights law. The announcement was made Thursday by a spokesman for a coalition of seven civil rights organizations. The coalition said at a news conference that a human .rights commission should be formed within state government in conjunction with .passage of a state civil rights law. Representatives of the organizations charged that racial unrest in South Carolina is .the result of "state - sanctioned policies of racial discrimination, color-conscious justice, and institutional denial of meaningful black involvement in decisions affecting the destiny of those institutions." The group's prepared statement said the state should take steps to "guarantee 'the rights of every 'individual." The organizations said a civil rights act should contain: ,. --Equal employment opportunity provisions. ., --Statutes opening all public accomodations, -and prohibiting the barring of a person .because' of race, creed, color or national .origin. · . . : - . , --Enactment of a .fairr.'hpy^-; ing provision to eliminate-discrimination in' housing. --Equal educational opportunities. --Abolition of the literacj', requirements as a prerequisite to voter registration. The organizations represented at the news conference were the Council on Human Relations; American Civil Liberties'Union; the Education and Defense Fund for'Racial Equality; the South Carolina Community Relations Program; -the South . Carolina Voter Education Project; the Southern Christian Leadership Conference; and the state conference of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Tropical Storm Hits Florida With Soft Punch MIAMI (AP) -- Tropical Storm Jenny breezed i n t o Florida's southwest c o a s ,t a 1 areas Thursday night with a moist but soft punch and then swept inland across t h e peninsula toward the Atlantic. Jenny lost its punch quickly after hitting land early today it was downgraded to a tropical depression, but forecasters at the National Hurricane Center said it would begin growing again after entering the Atlantic along Florida's upper east coast.

Weather observers said the highest on-land winds reported were 48 m.p.h. at Naples. Brief, heavy rains pelted the costal sections near the storm. But total rainfall early today was three inches or less. Tides were affected only slightly. The extent of damage, if any, to newly planted crops in the Fort Myers area could not be determined. Formosa Issue In Canada, Peking Talks UNITED NATIONS, New York (AP) -- Talks to establish diplomatic relations between Canada and Hed China are stalled over the issue of how to handle Peking's claim to Formosa, diplomatic sources said today. Canadian and Communist ·hinsse diplomats have liel "our meetings in Stockholm on Dttawa's desire to recognize Peking. The first session wa s held May 19: the others June 7, July 10 and Sept. 20. Informants said Canada had agreed to break relations with Chiang Kai-shek's Nationalist Chinese regime on Formosa and support Communist China's claim to membership in the United Nations if the talks succeed. But the Canadians have re. fused to endorse publicly Peking's claim to the "right to conquer and communize" Formosa, a well-placed foreign .observer of the Stockholm talks said. He reported Canada would not .challenge such an act but was unwilling to support it publicly. "Another highly placed diplomat .said Peking had asked only that Canada acknowledge that Formosa is part of China. Canada replied that it did not ask other countries to define its boundaries and should not be asked tp define theirs, the diplomat said. One informant said Canada's refusal to give in to China's demand was simply a matter of principle. Others suggested that it".was motivated partly by the fact that the United commit'ed by treaty to defend Formosa from Communist China and has its 7th Fleet in the strait between the two countries. They said Canada would find herself in an awkward position with her U.S. neighbor shoul( she say something that might encourage Communist China to risk war with the United States. Charge d'affaires Liu Chi-tsal was the Chinese representative at the first two meetings in Stockholm, where both Ottawa and Peking have embassies and Ambassador Wang Tung represented China at the thin and fourth. Ambassador Arthur Andrew represented Canada at the first three meetings, and Ambassa dor Margaret Meagher was Ottawa's representative at the fourth. One informant said the atmosphere had improved by the fourth meeting but that no pro gress was made. The agreement to hold the talks was reached in two proce dural meetings held in Stock holm on Canada's initiative in February and March. WASHINGTON (AP) - The international Monetary Fund today launches its "paper gold," new good-as-gold money )ased on faith and cooperation jetween nations. Balloting among the 74 coun- ries that have agreed so far to ake part in the sweeping new irogram of Special Drawing lights opened Thursday morn- ng as the fund and the World Jank neared the end of their ive-day annual meeting here.

As the und's largest gold-producing country it has * special interest not only ia the. continued use of ;old but also in its expansion. Paper gold, or SDRs, will he nternational money backed by nothing more than the fact that nations will accept it in payment for world trade, just as hey do now. It will exist only on the fund's books and will change lands only on ledger sheets. PROPRIETOR ACCUSED GREENSBORO (AP) -- The Justice Department asked U.S District Court Thursday to find Howard Glenn, owner oi Glenn's Frozen Custard in Bur lington, in contempt for alleged ly failing to abide by a deseg regation order.

(AP)Reigel Paper Corp. plans a 1, SCO - acre industrial park i planned in the Hamlet - Rock ingham area of Richmond Coun ty. The president of Riegel, Wil Ham -J. Scharffehberger, sale Thursday the New York - based firm chose the area because o its great potential for develop ment, Riegel has approximately 2, 000 employes in plants in North Carolina. The Douglas fir accounts fo two-thirds of the lumber from the Northwest. (\ IMF Nations Okay 'Paper Gold' Program Nevertheless, paper gold will be as good as the genuine article simply because the nations agree that it is, which is the only reason gold is accepted Of the $9.5 billion to be distributed, in paper gold's first three years, $3.5 .billion will come to life next Jan. 1. Plans are for $3 billion to be distributed on the first days of 1971 and 1972. .The fund's managing director, Pierre-Paul Schweitzer, proposed last month that the SDKs be distributed in proportion to nations' quotas--or required contributions--to the fund. Since the United States and other industrial countries have the largest quotas because they have the strongest and most productive economies, they will receive most of the SDRs. They also have the largest voice in deciding whether SDRs will be distributed, and met in Paris last July to work out the details of the plan. One banker figured that the 11 biggest nations in the fund would, over three years, receiv* almost two-thirds-'of the total.';. , Because.of the heavy way, tfi« major , countries are .,favored, several finance ministers--most frequently Emilio Colombo of Italy--suggested that some way be found to use the new manmade money to help underdeveloped countries.- The idea was rejected twica by the major nations The reason . given was that the hew money should at'first be used only to increase world reserves, or the pool of gold and currency nations now use to finance.their trade when they import more than they export and have balance of payments deficits. International finance, analysts point out that world reserves are growing more slowly than world trade, a situation which could eventually lead to a trade slowdown for no other reason than a money shortage. - This should not happen, they reason, if nations can agree to take something else as they agree to take gold as payment. Dry Season Red Offensive Seen In Laos TOKYO (AP) - Laotian Premier Souvanna Phouma predict- today 40,000 North Vietnamese regulars will soon launch a dry season offensive in his country. He said the assault had been delayed by the seizure--with the iielp of Laotian peasants--of large caches of North Viet-! namese arms by Laotian government troops. Souvanna spoke here before boarding an afternoon flight for New York. The prince who leads Laos' nominally neutral government challenged U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield's recent report that U.S. troops are increasingly involved in Laos and the recommendation that aid be slashed. Speaking to the Foreign Correspondents Cub of Japan, Sou- yanna said, "There is not a single U.S, soldier in Laos." He charged that Mansfield's understanding of Laos was limited by the fact he spent only one hour in the country, including a 40- minute talk with Souvanna, on his last visit. Souvanna said aid reduces the gap between rich and poor nations, "a gap which produces wars." He. said he had always op- sed' American military intervention in Laos because this could lead to the nation's "reduction to dust." Souvanna reiterated that the only foreign troops in Laos wer North Vietnamese. The only Americans were military attaches of the U.S. Embassy handling the military aid program, he said. The prince explained that Laos scrapped Soviet arms-"given to us to fight the United States"--when the Russians failed to replenish ammunition and parts. Laos turned to U.S. arms instead, he said, within the Geneva agreement provisions governing Laos. "We-asked for arms not to attack o u r ' neighbors, but to defend ourselves against the invaders," he said. Souvanna said he had approached the Soviet Union on several occasions to insist that it, 55 cochairman of the Geneva conference, enforce its provisions. The Kremlin replied, he said, "We shall see" after a Vietnam settlement. Souvanna protested this tendency to link Laos and Vietnam saying each was governed by separate Geneva agreements, but he expressed hope that an eventual Vietnam conference wiJl resolve the whole question of the former states of French Indochina.
