The State Department has crossed swords with it—all because of a Fourth of July telegram to President Nixon. The telegram, from Uganda's head of state, Gen. Idi Amin, wished Nixon "a speedy recovery from the Watergate affair." The State Department drew itself up in indignation. "The message is totally unacceptable in both substance and tone, and a strong protest is being conveyed to Uganda," State Department spokesman Paul J. Hare said Thursday: Furthermore, Hare said, U.S. Ambassador to Uganda Thomas P. Melady, who was recalled for "consultations" March 9, "will not be returning" and the United States has "no intention" to nominate a successor. M&ady was brought home after Amin praised the Viet Convertible Era Is Over at Ford, The Last Ragtop DETROIT (UPI) - The convertible era ended at Ford Motor Co. at 10:40 a.m. Thursday when a 1973 Mercury Cougar with a ragtop rolled off the Dearborn assembly line. Only General Motors will offer the soft-top on 1974 models. Chrysler and American Motors wrote the finale on that chapter of U.S. automotive history a few years ago: The peak convertible year was 1965 when 510,693 Were built. Although total car sales continue an upward climb, convertible sales have declined every year since 1965, accounting for 72,000 units in 1972. The last Ford-built convert! ble was delivered off the assembly line to Fioyd Moore, an automobile collector from Chicago. William P. Benton, Ford vice president and Lincoln-Mercury general manager, said air conditioning probably is the greatest single factor in the demise of the convertible.

The Watergate wishes were not the only thing the State Department didn't like in Amin's latest message. He also said, "We in Uganda hope that the great United States of America does not continue to use its enormous resources, especially (the military might, to destroy human life on earth, particularly in the developing world." ; Aside from these comments, it was an ordinary message such a9 statesmen send each other on national days, laced I with "greetings and good wishes" and extolling the virtues of independence and sovereignty. Uganda got its indeDendence a little later than the United States — in 1962. U.S. relations with Uganda have not been so good even aside from cutting remarks since Gen. Amin took over in 1971. He later ordered the expulsion of 50,000 Asians from the country. Recently, the United States has curtailed its aid programs to Uganda, which had run $2 million a year, and has withdrawn 114.

WASHINGTON (UPI) - The National Organization for I Women (NOW) today' threatened legal action to restrain the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) from granting money to the U. S. Jaycees to disseminate success stories. In a letter to OEO Director Alvin J. Arnett, NOW President Wilma Scott Heide charged that such a grant would be illegal because the Junior Chambers lof Commerce exclude women from membership.

She indicated NOW's legal action would be based on the Economic' Opportunity Act of 1972, which prohibits sex discrimination. Ms. Heide also said that "groups with more credibility Ivis-a-vis the poor" should receive any i government money intended to promote success stories. She suggested three groups —the National Welfare Rights Organization, the Household Workers of America and NOW. 'The U. S. Jaycees docs not quality on ground of program or lawful behavior," she said.
