There were sixty-seven classes for Morgan, Arabian and 4-H exhibitors from Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New Jersey, Delaware, Florida, Washington, D.C., Ohio, North Carolina and Massachusetts.

Meat Cutters Union Threatens Strike BALTIMORE (AP) - Local 117 of the Amalgamated Meat Cutters Union has given a one- week strike notice to the Giant Food Chain, arousing the possibility of a supermarket strike in metropolitan Baltimore. A union spokesman, who said Thursday night that negotiations are continuing, intimated a strike would be called only Cambodia Aid Test Awaited WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. John Sherman Cooper says next week's vote to bar enforcement of hiS proposal to restrict U.S. activities in Cambodia will provide the first clear test of strength in the three-week Senate debate. The amendment, offered by Sen. Robert J. Dole, R-Kan., would make the proposed fund cutoff inoperative as long as Americans are held prisoner by the North Vietnamese in Cambodia. "If the members in here arent impressed by that," ' Cooper, R-Ky., said in an interview, "they won't be impressed by the other amendments either." The Senate agreed before it adjourned Thursday for the M- morial Day weekend to vote Wednesday on Dole's amendment. But the key vote is likely to come on a bid by Sen. J. W. Fulbright, D-Ark., to table- and thus kill- the Dole amendment. He said it "is quite clearly designed to destroy any effect whatsoever" of the Cooper- Church proposal barring funds after July 1 for "retaining" U.S. forces in Cambodia. After Dole's amendment is acted on, Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va., says he will offer another amendment authorizing the President "to take such actions as may be necessary to protect the lives of United States forces in South Vietnam and to hasten their withdrawal." Cooper said both amendments deal with the subject that he finds increasingly mentioned in his mail: the contention by administration forces that Cooper-Church proponents are refusing to permit protection of U.S. troops in the field. "They know better," Cooper said, pointing out the proposal would permit "hot pursuit" of the enemy across the South Vietnam-Cambodia border and "sallies over the line to protect the troops." The only limit on the power to protect troops, the Kentucky Republican said, is that it tells the President "you can't use this argument to become involved in another war."

The strike deadline is set for midnight next Thursday. WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. John J. Williams, R-Del., says there is little chance Congress will enact the new $1.6 billion tax on leaded gasqline asked by President Nixon. If such a bill is pushed, he said in-an interview, "it could just end up as another Christmas tree with more tax cuts in it like the tax reform bill last year. "If that happened, we couW be in even more trouble. I think we already are in serious trouble economically and on. the budget." Several Democratic senators also said they saw little reason for Congress to approve the proposed new tax. They said it appeared the President was trying to raise money to lessen the budget deficit now forecast for the next fiscal year. But they insisted it would not be effective against auto pollution despite Nixon's claims. Sen. Warren G. Magnuson, D- Wash., Commerce Committee chairman, said: "What the President's proposal may very well do is cost the American people $1.6 billion without affording them any ap? preciable benefit. "A much better approach would be to prohibit the production of leaded gasoline at some future date. This could eliminate leaded gas and foster the production of unleaded fuel while saving American consumers. $1.6 billion." The new tax would raise gasoline prices about 2.3 cents a gallon. Williams, senior Republican on the tax-writing Finance Committee, also doubted the budget deficit in fiscal 1971, starting July I, would be as low as the $1.3 billion figure estimated by Nixon. As a result of the tax reform bill enacted last December, he I said, the government is suffer- 1 ing a net loss of $11 billion or $12 billion in annual revenue. This results, he said, from dropping the 5 per cent income tax surcharge June 30, the increase in the personal exemption from $600 to $650 effective July 1, the 15 per cent boost in Social Security benefits which took effecS last January, and the new low-income allowance granted poor families on their x returns. The only offsets, he said, were 3 billion gained from repeal of lie 7 per cent investment tax credit for business firms and about $1 billion from various reforms. The President, in his January budget message, forecast a $1.3 billion budget surplus for fiscal 1971. But, on May 19, he conceded there had been a $2.6 billion turnaround and a $1.3"billion deficit now is in prospect. But, said Williams, "that *1.3 billion is a completely phony figure. It is based on the so- called unified budget which counts the money in the Social Security trust fund, the highway fund, the unemployment compensation trust fund- things that never should be counted. "All of the money in those funds is tied up and obligated for the purposes for which the taxpayers paid it. It is not available to the Treasury for general expenses. "On the old administrative budget basis, the true deficit would be at least $10 or $11 billion for the next year." AFFECTIONATE MOTHER-Missus, a 12 year old lowland gorilla, holds her new offspring, the first gorilla ever to be born at the San Francisco Zoo. The father is Bwana, believed to be two years younger than his mate, who came from the French Cameroons of Africa. Thus far, mother and baby seem to be doing well. First born babies of "Gorilla gorilla" have often had to be hand-reared, because of the mother's inexperience and her stress over the first baby.
