) i Qalesburg Register -Maii GALESBURO, ILL.; MOM., JUNE 18, 197.1 Mayors Assured Of Federal Aid PAGE 17 i ^liiiijuiijliij! - SAN FRANCISCO (UP!) The nation's cite will be getting more federal eld than ever, a Nixon administration official assured the 41st Conference of Mayors Sunday. The statement from James T. Lynn, secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), came In rebuttal to criticism from host Mayor Joseph Alioto, who ohainged the cities have become "orphans" under the Nixpn administration. "We have never known who waa in charge in the cities for Nixon," the Sain Francisco mayor said on the NBC television program "Meet the Press." 'Cities Not Orphans' Lynn denied this, saying the cities were "not orphans at all, but vital elements in domestic planning." " He added that under the Better Communities Act (BCA), 30 out Off 50 of the. nation's cities .would receive mare federal aid in the future than they do under existing grant-in-aid programs. BCA would provide direct grants to cities and states for programs to be determined by locail governments rather than toy federal mandate, he said. Lynn also denied that older cities with Democratic voting records would come out on the short end of distributions. He said New York, for example, will get $700 million in the next five years, compared with $378 million received during the past five years. Main Problem Mayor Louie Welch of Houston, Tex., another of the six mayors on "Meet the Press," said the main problem concerning the more than 800 municipal officials representing 50 states and Puerto Rico at the conference is the "gap" be* tween federal revenue sharing funds and federal funds made available for specific problems. Welch said he could not agree with administration officials who say the gap is small. "We may be looking a little more realistically," he said. But the panel agreed that local . control of. spending programs as laid out in the President's so-called "new federalism" is a good sign. Others on the television panel included: Kenneth A. Gibson, Newark, N. J.; Neil Goldschmidt, Portland, Ore.; Ben Boo, Duluth, Minn., and Pete Wilson, San Diego. Reluctant Golda Meir Agrees to Second Term < Guards Flooded Store A woman balances a rifle on her knees as she sits outside her flooded home and store in Bolles Harbor, Mich., guarding her property from looters. A low pressure system moving across the state caused a sudden eight fdot rise in water levels of the lakes Sunday. More than 250 persons were forced to evacuate their homes. An estimated 10,000 homes were flooded in what is believed to be the worst flooding in the area's history. POW's Release Negotiated TEL AVIV (UPI) - Goldai Mcir, who once described her job as "impossible," ended months of suspense Sunday and reluctantly announced she would seek another four-year term as Israel's prime minister. With the support of three- quarters of the Israeli public, according to a recent poll, the 75-ycar-old Ukrainian-born, American-educated grandmother is virtually assured of reelection. Suspense Ends Her announcement, made in a letter sent to governing Labor party Secretary Aharon Yadlin and read to a cheering secretariat meeting, ended months of agony among her political allies who feared she would step down. That would have left the party open to a factional war at the party's nominating convention for Parliament next October. Mrs. Meir, who first assumed her post in 1969 as a compromise choice to succeed the late Levi Eshkol, said in her letter she had tried to explain her feelings to "my fellow party members amid an effort to persuade them to free me from presenting my candidacy. But I. have not succeeded. Delayed Decision "Therefore," she said, "if the party so decides, I will not remove my candidacy." Yadlin said Mrs. Meir told him Saturday she had delayed her decision as long as possible in fruitless attempts to dissuade her colleagues from pressing her to continue. She also told him her decision did not mean other party members should not run for the post. However, Labor's three principal rivals for the succession- Defense Minister Moshc Dayan, Finance Minister Pinhas Sapir and Deputy Prime Minister Yigai Allon—have all urged her to stay on. 'Impossible Job' Mrs. Meir, who modestly celebrated her 75th birthday May 3, recently described her job to one interviewer till M an impossible one." In talks with reporter's last year that threw the country into suspense over her future plans, she suggested that iho would not head her party's slate again. But after a six-day medical cfieckup in a Jerusalem hospital last month and an apparent clean bill of health from doctors, she said she had not made a final decision.

FLOY BOND WASHINGTON (UPI) - U.S. officials in Laos are attempting to obtain the release of the first acknowledged American prisoner of war captured since the cease-fire; He is Emmet Kay, from Honolulu.

Two American military pilots are listed as missing in action in . Cambodia in the post Vietnam cease-fire period. There has been no word from Cambodian Communist officials as to whether they prisoners. Officials in Vientiane, the Laotian capital, said Kay was on a "routine" mission when his clane went down.
