4t (Solesboro ^eaiste^MQil, Geltsbura, 111. Wednesdoy, July, 25, 1973, f Plumy War Straggler Did It Out of Sympathy MANILA (UPI) - A white-haired Filipirto farmer disclosed today that he passed himself off as a World War It Japanese soldier who hid himself to the southern Philippines for » years. He said he did it out of compassion for a family that thought he was a long-lost relative. the mill told newsmen he really is Tanaw tao, 46, a native-born Filipino — and not Ryoji Miki, a former seaman in the Imperial navy. AT HIS SIDE were members of the Miki family. They said they understood Tao's action. The Miki family also said it would stop the search for their missing kinsman. The family announced last week that its long search was over when it found Tao in the southern Phillipines, where Miki disappeared during the war. "I did not want to disappoint them," Tao said. "I really pitied them.'' One member of the family said Tao did not speak or understand Japanese and was taller that Ryoji's twin brother Sekizo. But he said that when he first saw Tao he discounted the discrepancies and allowed his emotions to convince him that he had finally found his lost brother. TAO SAID he learned last June that some Japanese were looking for him and he finally met Sozo Miki in General Santos City, about 700 miles south of Manila, earlier this month. He said Sozo showed him a picture of the lost Ryoji and insisted he was the same man. Tao said he repeatedly denied it. Wc have trained LADY PHOTOGRAPHERS to capture the personality of your child.

They rallied today around an amendment by Sen. James B Allen, r>Ala., freezing the salaries of senators and House members at $42,900. Sen. Warren G. Magnuson, ft* Wash., called proposals for a pay increase "incredibly ill- timed" and added he could see U. S. Certain To KOI U. N. Resolution UNITED NATIONS (UPI) Diplomatic moves failed toj persuade the United States to drop its opposition Tuesday to a Middle East resolution that is critical of Israel, (bus making the fifth U.S. veto at the United Nations almost certain. American sources said Ambassador John Scali is ready to veto the resolution when it comes to a vote in ithe Security Council, possibly on Thursday. Despite American opposition, the non-aligned countries sponsoring the measure insisted it go before the 15-member council for consideration. Arm Twisting Consultations went on all day Tuesday in efforts to sway the U.S. delegation in its opposition to the resolution deploring Israel's continued occupation of Arab territory captured in the Six-Day War of 1967. It was net certain which of the 15 council members would sponsor the measure when the council meets today. Some of the non-aligned council members, which include Guinea, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Panama, Peru, Sudan and Yugoslavia, were awaiting last minute instructions from their governments Diptomtic sources said backers of Arabs who want strong anti-Israel action counted on 13 yes votes in the council. China was. expected to abstain with the United States voting no. Seek Limitations The United States unsuccessfully circulated a working paper that would limit the council to regretting the lack of progress in bringing peace to the Middle East under a U.N. resolution unanimously adopted on Nov. 22, 1967, and calling on the world organization to "resume and pursue" peace efforts in the area. Instead, the council was asked to deplore the Israeli occuaption on grounds it violates the U.N. charter. The United States objects to that and to mention of the "rights and legitimate aspirations of the Palestinians," a major point of conflict between Israel and the Arabs. Bicycle Tires Reflect Light CHICAGO (UPI) - Bicycle tires that glow like neon in the reflection of automobile headlights were introduced as a bicycling safety measure Tuesday. The tires, made by Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co., glow because of reflective tape molded into their sidewalls, a company spokesman said. Harold Heldreth, manager of youth activities for the National Safety Council, said he thought the tires were "great" and "absolutely a most significant contribution to bike safety after dark." A.H.' Shafer, Goodyear vice president for replacement tire sales, said the reflective strip on the tires cannot be removed and is not susceptible to damage. He said the tape is made of microscopic glass beads similar to material used in traffic control signs. ! Bus Drivers Quit Jobs BRIGHTON, England (UPI), — Nagging women are driving j Brighton's bus conductors and drivers off the road. A bus company spokesman said Tuesday that many em­ ployes have resigned because women waiting at bus stops insulted them. Because of this, the spokesman said, the company was forced to cut services by five per cent. no justification "for an increase that would amount to more than the total annual salary of most American breadwinners." Although recommendations of a pay commission have not been made public, Magnuson indicated that the commission recommended an increase of 112,500 for members of Con- gfessffefcifig pay to $55,000 a year, Allen planned to offer the amenufnent when trie senate opened consideration of a comprenensrve campaign reform bin. The reform measure sets limits on contributions by individuals of $15,000 to a presidential candidate and fS.000 to congressional candidates with an aggregate limit of $100,000 hi donations during a single year. The hill also provides a spending ceiling of 15 cents per euginte voter n primaries am 20 cents in the general election. In addition, the bill would create a federal flections uommiSBion, win powers to take court action, to oversee tne reforms. Allen and the 36 co-sponsors off tne afnenumeni are seeking to undo what the Senate pissed July 9, by voice vote with only a handful of senators on the floor. . The Senate approved legislation which would have permitted President Niton to lecutiiiieud salary increases for Congress, members of the Caoinet and federal judges as early as August. They would go into effect in October unless either the Senate or House voted to turn them down.
