(TIMESphoto hy Ray Gray) City Directors To Face Light Agenda At Tuesday Meeting Petitions bearing al least 3,000 signatures are expected to be presented to the Fayetteville Board of Directors Tuesday night by a group of Fayetteville citizens attempting to save the Rising Cost Of Newsprint Shrinks Newspaper Size NEW YORK (AP) -- Swelling newsprint costs continue to cause shrinking newspaper sizes, (he latest survey hy the Associated Press Managing Editors Association shows. Questionnaires wee mailed 1,260 member newspapers in January, and 248 editors responded. The survey by Ron M a r t i n , managing editor of the Miami Herald and vice chairman of the APME's reader relations committee, found that 158 editors, or 65 per cent of those responding, said Hie newsprint shortage was affecting them. In a similar survey reported last October, 295 of 470 news papers responding, or 65 per cent, said the then-acute newsprint shortage had forced them to drop some news articles. In the latest survey, most editors said they had restored cuts in local news, features and photos but continued to eliminate some news agency f e a - tures, comics, hard wire news, weddings and engagements anti stock and television listings. The shortage has driven the price of newsprint up from $175 a ton a year ago to S2B a ton in the United States. A ton can supply about 7,000 copies of a 24-page paper. One hundrod-sixty-seven editors said they had not restored all the cuts made at the beginning ot the crunch last year, although 53 said they had. One editor commented. "I don't think we'll ever get back to tlie size news hole we had before the shortage. Newsprint just costs too much for us to use it the way we used to." According to ihe survey, 82 papers changed advertising pol- . icies by such methods as limiting ad" sizes, stacking ads or ' eliminating promotional ads. The survey found that 115 papers have m a d e such circulation changes as cutting f r i n ; or uneconomic circulation, i strictinS r e t u r n s and tightening the number of copies used internally. These survey results also were r e p o r t e d : --Sixty-three of 212 editors said they are using fewer com ics than before the space squeeze, and readers say they miss them most. --Eighty-four of 194 editors said they are r u n n i n g fewer syndicated features.

Members of the citizens group circulating the petitions have been asked to turn their petition in on the steps of the old post office at 7 p.m. Tuesday, just prior lo ihe beginning of .he 7:30 p.m. Board meeting.

Saddle Stolen Vielnamese Says JFK Responsible For Diem Fall PARIS ( A P ) -- A formei high-level Sfiifion official say: the late E*resitJcnt Ngo Din! Diem was overthrown by a Washington-instigated coup be ise ho refused to allow American troops to be stationw in South Vietnam as a pretex Iran Van Khicm, one o Diem's top advisers, claims the late President John F. Kennedy wanted to station 15,000 troop in Souh Vietnam as a prete for attacking Chinese nuclea With U.S. troops in the South Khiem charged, Kennedy coul then claim to be protecting them by launching massive ai: strikes against the Communist, and evetiually against China it self. Writing in the monthly dipto matic supplement of Le Monde Khiem says Diem refused be cause he believed the Kennedj request would lead to the dev astation of his country. He prepared, instead, to sem an cmisisary to Hanoi lo mak peace and arrange for the nei tran'zEition of Southeast Asia Khiem said. But the coup November 1963 installed a pro American government whic welcome! U S , troops.

Hearings Now Doubtful WASHINGTON (AP) -- It ow looks as if the public will ave scant opportunity -- and erhans none whatever -- to witness any part of the im- eachment proceedings of the touse Judiciary Committee. The prospect of live television leverage is especially dimin- shed, both by the trend of the janel's t h i n k i n g and the sheer :rush of time. And it could be hat the doors will be opened to 10 outsiders at all. A number of votes and comments by committee members n recent days all went in the Erection of keeping the inquiry ·losed, contrary to a plea from 'resident Ni.\on's attorneys and previous assurances from vinel leaders that the secrecy vould soon be lifted. The privacy to date was designed to expedite the initial presentation of evidence and also to protect some particular- y sensitive items, such as the special report from the Water;ate grand jury, heard in the early phase. THREE MORE WEEKS With two previous target dates having slipped by al ready, time is an even more ur :ent consideration -- ant Chairman Peter W. Rodino Jr. D-N.J., is determined to hold to a revised schedule that would wind up the investigative par of the proceedings in three more weeks. Allowing another week for the examination of any wit nesses and for the President's chief lawyer, James D. St Clatr, to present his arguments Lhe committee should be able t begin drawing up its recom mendations by July 1. And, if the committee con eludes t h a t it has a case against Nixon, it is not likely to linger at any great length be fore making its decision offi cial. The committee took anothe long stride toward meeting Ro dino's timetable when it alsi refused, on a vote of 23 to 15, t open the hearings immediately television included. TO SIT SILENTLY The evidence is being pre sented in a manner that quires the members to silently while special counse John Doar and his aides reai statements and supporting ev. dence bearing on the variou allegations. While speedy and efficient such a format provides littl for cameras to focus upon am no chance for the individua congressmen to grab the lime light. The procedure undoubt edly would have been change if the hearings were opened. Most House members, espe daily the Republicans, are an ious to get the vote behim them. And House and Senat leaders are growing increas ingly alarmed at the progres of the regular legislative pro gram. nt N. r*i IT Tommy Perry.

"The action of the Fordyce School Board in firing 50 of it 65 teachers is unconscionable irresponsible and ridiculous,' the AEA said in a news re lease.

Jim Caldwell of Rogers, lairman of the Arkansas Re- iblican party, received a tele- hone call this week from a lend expressing condolences. "What for?" Caldwoll asked "The death of the Republican arty--it did die, didn't it?" the riend said. "It pretty nearly did," Cald- 'ell chuckled. That little exchange was rompted by the voter turnout Father And Son File For Same District Office OXON HILL, Md. (AP) -'It's commendable for young reople to run for office, and I've Uvays encouraged it," said Roy Chambers. "But when my son runs against me, wel, hat makes it kind of difficult."Roy Chambers. 54, and lis son Robert. 28, have both ilod for the Democratic nomination for Congress for Maryland's 4(h District. There's no political love lost between he two. "I'm going (o treat him like iny other opponent," said Roy. "We j u s t disagree on most issues." Robert said he doesn't intend to engage in any mud-slinging igainst his father, "but his f i l i n g encouraged me to file. If he ever got elected, he would set the state back 30 years." In 1964, the father took time off from operating a machine shop to help the Maryland cam- laign of Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace in his first presidential bid. ' AIP MEMBER He became a member of the American Independent Party, again campaining for Wallace in 1968 and 1972. In recognition, recievcd an honorary' commission as a lieutenant colonel in the Alabama state militia. The son, a self-employed tennis instructor with bushy sideburns and shoulder-length hair, is a libelarl. He worked the 19(18 presidential campaign of Robert F. Kennedy and c a m p a i g n e d f o r George McGovern for president in 1972. The father has come out hard against busing and forced integration, "I oppose racial quotas in general," he said. "At this point, that's what I'm running on." The son, meanwhile, said support of' amnesty for d r a f t dodgers and prison reform will be major planks in bis platform the largely rural, conservative 4th District. Roy Chambers has not yet replied to the suggestion. Five candidates have filed thus far for the Democratic nomination for the seat now held by Rep. Marjorie Holt, a Republican. In the Republican primary May 28--fewer than 5.000 votes. It was a primary the party leaders didn't, want to have, in the first place, and a primary in which the party faithful didn't participate in, in the second place. Caldwell said. Eternally optimistic, Caldwell said he believed the state had more than 5.000 persons who identified with the party. "It's probaby 18 to 22 per cent of the vote," Caldwell a legally author- said. To remain ized minority party, the Re publicans must get 7 per cent of the vote cast for governor in the Nov. 5 general election. The May 28 turnout was about 1 per cent of the vole. The tiny turnout was due to interest in the Democratic senatorial primary betwen Sen J.W. Fulbright and Gov. Dale Bumpers. GOP leaders said Bob Scott, state GOP counsel said that even he wanted to have a voice in the Democratic .cnalorial contest, but voted. nstead, in the Republican primary "I" think it would be grossly u n f a i r lo criticize those Re- lublicans who wanted to go where the action was," he said. But he said he thought the JOP gubernatorial nominee, Ken Coon of Conway, was backed by about 40 per cent of the Arkansas electorate today. "And we think there will be more for him in November." he said. The Republicans had hoped to avoid a runoff completely and. in that hope, had tried to block the filing of Joseph H. Weston of Cave City for the gubernatorial spot. Weston. 62, of Cave City, controversial editor of a weekly mewspaper. was accepted by the GOP after the party lost its fight at the state Supreme Court. Four criminal . libel charges have been filed against Weston as a result of articles in his paper. Women Speak LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- The Governor's Commission on the Status of Women commended Congress on Saturday for extending the m i n i m u m wage for domestic workers, the majority of whom are women. The women also encouraged the tArkansas congressional delegation to see that the law is enforced vigorously by the Department of Labor.
