PACMBTWO ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH MONDAY, AUGUST 8,1980 LITTLE COOLER Showers or thundershowers are expected tonight in the Virginia*, the Carolinas and southern and northwest- Ike Sends Message to Congress (Continued Prom Page 1.) measure as passed by Congress, was a provision Elsenhower asked tor grants by the federal government to states to help them in efforts for desegregating schools. A second deletion was a provision for statutory authority for the Government Contracts Committee which seeks to avoid racial discrimination on work done on gov- r -nrnent contracts. In listing again all the measures he had asked in May, and requesting action on them, Eisenhower said he had special comment on two—farm legislation and assistance to depressed areas. As to a farm bill, particularly to deal with the wheat surplus program, Elsenhower said "The Congress has refused to accept my recommendations and insisted upon unrealistic programs which, of course, I have rejected." He repeated what he has said before—that if Congress works out some different approach from his ideas and keeps it "within the guidelines, I will unhesitatingly approve it." "The Congress should promptly provide the constructive remedies for agriculture so long and so urgently needed," he said. AM to Depressed Areas As tor aid to depressed areas, Eisenhower said: "For five years in a row I have recommended area assistance leg islatlon. Regrettably I had no choice but to veto the legislation the Congress did pass this session It would have frittered the taxpayers' money away in areas where it was not needed and on programs that would not have benefltted those truly in need of help. "A new area assistance bill, with administration backing, was introduced immediately after my veto. It would channel more help directly into stricken areas than any previous measure proposed. Failure to act will deny this help for months to come. Human distress demands action now. If later we find mere should be changes either in the dollar amounts or the methods used, experience will dictate the kind of adjustments to be made." Although leaders have said they expect Congress to end its session before Labor Day, Eisenhower told the legislators they ought to tackle the program which he laid down and "stay on the job until it Is done." Threaten! Veto "Certainly," he said, "we can not adjourn the public interest." Eisenhower made it dear he is prepared to meet with vetoes any measures he believes might call for deficit spending. The President recited recent world events which he said denoted "an intensification of Communist truculence." "I n d e e d," Eisenhower said, "the Soviet dictator has talked loosely and irresponsibly about a possible missile attack on the United States." Eisenhower recalled the recent attack on an American plane over international waters. He said the Soviet delegation has walked out of (he Geneva disarmament negotiations. "The Communists continue to exploit situations of unrest, flagrantly striving to turn to their ends the struggles and hopes of peoples for a better world," he said. "These Communist efforts have recently reached new extremes in Central Africa. "All of us know about Cuba." Elsenhower's message was di reetod to a Congress that took time out tor the presidential nominating conventions and now is re turning tor an abbreviated session that oould have a vital bearing on the outcome of the November election. The meiuiagp was addressed to both the Senate and House, even though the Senate alone recon vened today. The Howe returns next Monday. •nee the House was not in ses- •JQR, the message for it went to ttw House dark. Eisenhower said mat to keep tb* nation in readiness for any •vcofuality he already has taken certain "practical measures" to fee American military ing tankers which had been scheduled to be phased out of U. S. forces will be retained in service For the time being. In the area of long-range programming, the President said the capability of the Strategic Air Command to conduct a continuous airborne alert will be strengthened. More Funds for Military "More funds will be applied to the modernization of the Army combat equipment and to military airlift," he said. "Additional effort will be devoted to the* development of the B70 and the reconnaissance satellite Samos." Eisenhower said that during the congressional recess, extraordinary progress had been made in developing the Polaris ballistic missile submarine. "It is with great satisfaction that I report to the Congress that the first test firings of the Polaris missile from the submerged n clear submarine George Washington had rifle-shot accuracy at great ranges," he said. "The time is now right to increase the scope of the Polaris program and five instead of three more submarines have been started this fiscal year. Furthermore, I have directed the development of a much longer-range version of the Polaris missile, which will give America a weapon of even greater versatility, power and invulnerability." Eisenhower said that the Defense Department will carry out these measures "with its available resources insofar as possible." He said weapons system programs will be carried out by utilizing appropriations already made by Congress. "Total resources are adequate," he said, "although a modest increase in military personnel and in operation and maintenance funds may prove to be necessary to carry out the readiness measures. If such an increase should be required, I shall promptly request the necessary funds." No Specific Increase Although the President's outline appeared to recognize the statement in the Republican platform that defense operations should be stepped up, his failure to recommend any specific increase in defense appropriations seemed likely to draw the fire of Sen. John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts, the Democratic presidential nominee. Kennedy and his Democratic associates have been demanding an increase of up to three billion dollars above the current level in defense spending. The attitude of Vice President Richard M. Nixon, the Republican presidential nominee, toward Eisenhower's military program statement was not clear at the moment. Nixon joined with Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York in forcing a revision of the Republi can platform plank dealing with military matters so that it called for an accelerated defense effort. Kennedy said Sunday that Ei senhower should send Congress an emergency defense spending program. He said Eisenhower could ask more money now; could unfreeze money already appropriated but not being spent; or could speed up other defense spending now and ask supplemental appropriations in January. A backlog of other politically controversial bills before the ses sion includes the always touchy foreign aid appropriation: proposed increases in minimum wages; medical care for the aged; federal aid for schools; and housing legislation.

(AP) - A $500,000 bond issue for construction of a new jail will be submitted to St. Clair voters in November, the county board of supervisors said Saturday.

The agency still plans t» touch ronautsimoi Mercury astre flights this year and tote orbits around the earth next year, as nearly on schedule aa la possible in any ambitious research and development program, Silverstein said. Seven men are being trained for orbital flights of 17,500 tidies an hour, three or more times around the earth, at altitudes of 190 miles. These full-scale Atlas-launched missions will be preceded by sub- orbital test hops, In Redstone rocket-launched capsules, to an altitude of 125 miles and a distance of 200 miles down range from Cape Canaveral. Dr. Homer Joe Stewart, NASA's director of program planning, told a National Rocket Gub luncheon July 28 that the Mercury program, under way now for 18 months, has had "some small slippage." Stewart said a suborbital manned flight "is still technically possible by the end of this year, but the margin is getting a little small." What might have been a major step forward in the Mercury program—the first attempt at an Atlas-launched ballistic flight of a Mercury capsule — turned into a sharp setback when the rocket exploded 65 seconds after launching J" 1 -' 29. Silverstein said the reason for the Atlas failure was still a mystery. dead and a woman missing.
