* Pledge of American Action in Event of Red Drive Revealed Wednesday, April 9. 1975, THE HERALD, Provo, Utah-Page 5 UVIDA Board Okays Changes in Bylaws m ^* m (Continued from Page 1) was stated publicly by the Nixon administration at the time of the agreement." The White House put out a series of statements made by Nixon administration in the aftermath of the signing of the accords in which Nixon stated that violations threatening for agreement "would call for appropriate, vigorous reactions." Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger and other high administration officials have consistantly said there were no secret agreements between the two governments. In his foreign policy report of May, 1973, Nixon said, "We have told Hanoi, privately and publicly, that we will not tolerate violations of the agreement.'' Although pressed by reporters, Nessen refused to specify whether by "vigorous reaction," the Nixon administration meant military intervention or a resumption of the bombing. "Assurances to the republic of Vietnam as to both U.S. assistance and United States enforcement of the Paris agreement were stated clearly and publicly by President Nixon." Nessen said. The implication in Jackson's remarks and other similar reports was that Haig and other U.S. officials had promised Thieu they would supply more military assistance to South Vietnam if the North Vietnamese seriously violated the Paris accords. Kissinger Invites Israeli Foreign Minister Here By United Press International Israel announced today Foreign Minister Yigal Allon will go to Washington next week at Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger's request in what officials say is the first diplomatic movement with the United States in three weeks. The Israeli foreign ministry said Allon will confer with Kissinger but announced no date for the trip for security reasons. A ministry spokesman did not say when Kissinger made the request, but the secretary met in Washington for 80-minutes Tuesday with Israeli Ambassador Simha Dinitz. Israeli officials said Allon will South Koreans Hang Student Demonstrators SEOUL (UPI) - The South Korean government hanged eight men today on charges of organizing student demonstrations to overthrow President ParkChung-hee. Shortly after, about 3,000 students took to the streets of Seoul to protest Park's repressive rule and several clashes with riot police were reported. The Justice Ministry said the condemned men — alleged members of a leftist organization called the People's Revolution Party —were hanged this morning at Seoul Prison. Six officials witnessed the executions. Students from six colleges staged demonstrations in Seoul to demand a return to democracy a day after Park ordered riot police to close Korea University, one of the country's most prestigious colleges, which had been the scene of recent violent anti-government protests. About 400 students of Seoul National University's College of Music marched from the campus into central Seoul where they clashed with riot police. The students were pushed back into the school grounds by police firing tear gas shells. Hankuk University of Foreign Studies suspended classes after about 700 students clashed with riot police in front of the school. Sokang Jesuit University declared a vacation after heated student rallies on the campus. At Ewha Women's University, about 1,000 students staged a 90-minute sit-in. Several hundred students from two other universities took to the streets where they clashed with police. present options in Washington that could be used for renewing negotiations based on a withdrawal from Sinai in exchange for an Egyptian pledge to refrain from force and to grant political concessions. Kissinger's attempts to bring about such an interim peace agreement with Egypt based on a second Israeli withdrawal from the Sinai desert broke down March 22 following 15 days of shuttling between Egypt and Israel. After the breakdown, President Ford ordered a reassessment of U.S. Middle East policy, and last week the United States told Isreali Defense Minister Shimon Peres to postpone his trip to Washington to seek more arms. "The Israelis look upon this (the Allon visit) as the first signs of diplomatic movement since the breakdown of the Kissinger mission and even the beginning of the easing of tension" between Washington and Israel, a government official said. The Jerusalem Post quoted informed sources Tuesday as saying the dispute between American and Israeli officials over the breakdown of the Kissinger mission is "rapidly becoming personalized into an open feud . between Secretary Kissinger and Premier Yitzvak Rabin. "The dispute has become personalized in part because of Dr. Kissinger's observation, indiscriminately offered to congressmen and other listeners, that Premier Rabin's firmness stems from his weakness within the cabinet and Knesset (parliament)," the Post said. Senate Keeps Controls on Oil Profits WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Senate refused today to give up price controls on oil products in favor of a combination of unlimited prices plus limits on profits. Senators turned down, 6921, an excess profits tax amendment to the Standby Energy Authorities Act. Sen. Mike Gravel, D-Alaska, author of the profit control proposal, told the Senate that higher prices are the only way to get more domestic oil and thus lessen the nation's dependence on imports. The first French Acadian settlers arrived in what is now St. James Parish, La., in 1756. * Provo City Votes Water Rate Boost (Continued from Page 1) of town are two inches or smaller when eight inches is now being installed. "We felt that the trade-off is as equitable as possible for existing and new customers," he said. Provo resident Dale King said he felt that he was being asked to pay a water increase to help pay for luxury homes being built in the city. He asked if the city could place .a sliding scale charge on water so homes costing more would pay a higher rate. Eddie Kimball, former Provo resident for over 40 years and now a county resident using city water, said he felt it very unfair that non city residents were being asked to pay triple the regular rate. City officials said there is little sympathy in the city for providing city services to people who live on the edge of town and there was a feeling among members of the city water advisory board that thf non-resident rate should be four times the city rate rather than three. Mr. Wheadon said the city is growing rapidly and if city residents want the economic benefits of growth, and places for their growing children to be able to live they will have to bear some expansion costs. He said the rate increase will boost the capital budget for the water system by about $400,000 next year. The current capital budget is 5878,000. Operation of the system costs $406,052 this year. Mr. Wheadon said the city is making plans for water use in the city for 1993. He remarked that the city's consumption of water per head of population is considerably higher than the national average. Steps are being taken to conserve water supplies, he said. The national average is 125 gallons of water per head of population per day, while Provo rodents «se 299.5 gallons per WAT Researcher Awarded $49,000 The National Science Foundation in Washington, D.C., has awarded $49,000 to a Brigham Young University researcher to study new catalysts for methanation in coal gasification processes. Grant recipient Dr. Calvin H. Bartholomew, assistant professor of chemical engineering, said he will use the research money to continue his studies of new nickel catalysts. He already has discovered better methods for manufacturing catalysts and has reported his findings before scientific organizations. The NSF grant will cover two years of research, and Dr. Bartholomew hopes, among other things, to develop standard techniques for measuring catalyst areas. Catalysts are important in the production of methane gas from coal and in air pollution control. Judges Named For Mother of Year Contest SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) - A dozen women have been nominated as candidates for 1975 Utah Mother of the Year. Caroline E. Miner, president of the Utah Mothers Association, announced the nominees Tuesday and said a winner and two alternates will be named Saturday at 2 p.m. in the Assembly Hall on Salt Lake's Temple Square. The winner will represent Utah in the American Mother of the Year competition in New York next month. The candidates include Gladys Shields Ross of Roosevelt; Libbie Cook Hayward of Provo; Louise Oyler Davis of Brigham City; Zola Chugg Davis and Jennie Child Johnson of Ogden; May Hacking Calder of Vernal; Florence Tuttle Nielson of Heber City; Leola D. Green Merrill of Farmington; June Larsen Evans of Granite; Elva Acklam Stark and Sarah Moyle Creer of Salt Lake City; and Dorothy Knowlton Cannon of Logan. A suggested by-laws change and four recommendations for operation of the Utah Valley Industrial Development Association (UVIDA) were agreed upon in a meeting of the UVIDA board and the executive committee of the Utah County Council of Governments (COG) this week. These revisions will be presented Thursday night to the monthly meeting of COG for approval. The suggested by-laws change would provide for one representative to the UVIDA board to be appointed from Santaquin, Salem, Mapleton, Linden, and Alpine cities. The representative may be the mayor, a member of the city council, or their appointed representative. At present, the larger cities of the county are represented on the board of directors. No other by-laws changes have been proposed. The recommendations approved Monday night are as follows: Since UVIDA must maintain an office and personnel to handle the daily industrial development contacts and business, it is proposed that: (1) UVIDA be funded by the Utah County Council of Governments and such private funds as are now donated, and submit a monthly financial report to the Council of Governments showing receipts and disbursements. (2) UVIDA submit a monthly report to the Council of Governments showing the number of contacts and, where possible, the type of contacts and any information which will help maintain effective communications. (3) The above reports be provided to the various city representatives on the UVIDA board of directors, who in turn will meet with the city councils regularly and keep them informed concernng the activities of UVIDA. (4) UVIDA (president, president - elect, city representative of the city involved, and manager) will meet with each city to determine its industrial development and industrial park needs, and by working with the Council of Governments and the Mountainland Association of Governments present a united request for federal funding through the appropriate agency or agencies. Winston M. Crawford, president of UVIDA, presented the following summary: "The UVIDA board of directors is very anxious to have an effective industrial development organization in Utah Valley, one that can maintain the spirit of cooperation and unity that is so very essential in Utah Valley at the present time, an organization that can represent the county and each community in a very objective way, an organization that a prospective client or local business person can feel confident in to provide honest, reliable, and up-to-date information and just consideration." "We realize the need for effective communication and will strive to provide it. We also know that it is essential for communities and the county to provide industrial parks or industrial lands owned by the city or county or privately owned, properly zoned, and with a price per acre or lot that is realistic, quotable, and not subject to daily change or fluctuation," his summary continued. "We encourage community and county support of UVIDA and will do all we can to justify that support," Mr. Crawford concluded. POULTRY SALE Recommendations on County Fire Fighting To Be Reviewed Five recommendations will be presented Thursday night to the Utah County Council of Governments by members of the COG fire agreement study committee which was appointed recently to study an equitable fire contract between the county and the cities. Recommendations to be made by the study committee are as follows: (1) That service districts be set up in unincorporated portions of the county, exclusive of U.S. Steel's Geneva Works and other large industrial zones. (2) That service charges be assessed on all improvements and personal property in the unincorporated areas. (3) That the fire apportionment of Utah County be increased from $100,000 to $200,000 per year and that the additional $100,000 come from the county service districts. (4) That the fire agreement between the county and the cities be changed to reflect the position of the County Fire Marshal and his responsibilities. (5) That a list of operating rules and regulations be adapted to stop duplication of efforts and reduce the overall fire protection in the county. The Utah County Commissioners are expected to respond to the recommendations by proposing that they hire an unbiased firm to make a study of actual costs involved with the incorporated versus the unincorporated areas. Many of the mayors making up the executive board of COG have been pressing for revisions in the fire agreements for some time. At the present time the cities contract with the county to provide fire protection to the unincorporated areas outside their boundaries. The cities are then reimbursed for their services by the county. Several mayors have objected to the arrangement, however, charging that the biggest portion of the county taxes comes from people who live in the cities, or from businesses and industries in the cities. Several have charged tht the fire agreements which have operated in the past represent double taxation for the city dwellers. Some decision concerning the fire agreement issue is expected at Thursday night's COG meeting, which will be held at 7:30 p.m. in Room 200 of the Utah County building. Challenges Noted for LOS Members in Latin America In the summertime, the sun shines about 60 per cent of the time in New Orleans. Latin Americans are trying to forge, in a peaceful way, some of the legitimate freedoms in their own countries that most Americans won for themselves 50 years ago. This observation was made Tuesday by Dr. LaMond Tullis, associate professor of political science at Brigham Young University, in the last BYU Forum assembly of the winter semester. He told the Marriott Center audience that many Latin American Mormons believe that they must help forge a clearing in a temporal wilderness if their people are to flourish and grow in the gospel. "There it will be done by breaking down ancient economic, social, and political traditions incompatible with human dignity and freedom," the BYU and Harvard graduate said. Dr. Tullis went on to say that there will be resistance from many governments and vested interests. There will be persecution. And there will be those representing contrary value systems who will approach our people and say, "Come, do it our way." "That their prescriptions are, in many cases, anti-Christian makes our challenge a very great one indeed," Dr. Tullis observed. "Counter value systems, such as Communism, recognize fully the existence of artificial opportunity blocks and focus on removing them. Consequently, if we ignore the existence of those same blocks or, worse yet, help to maintain them, we shall hinder or destroy communication with our Latin American brothers and sisters — and in so doing shall aid and abet the enemy by helping to deliver those brothers and sisters into his arms," Dr. Tullis observed. purcha ALL Vale Manor HOMES QUALIFY You Can Benefit From N«w Tax BIN President Ford has jusl signed Into law a new tax amendment that recites 5 percent (to B $2000 maximum) of the price of any new home purchased this year that was under construction prior to March 25, 1975.
