Kissinger's threat to resign injected something of a crisis atmosphere into President Nixon's quiet rest stop amid the towering snow-capped Austrian Alps. Grim-faced and emotional. the secretary of state monecl the traveling White Mouse press corps and defended his personal honor from assaults stemming from the Nixon administration's wiretaps. President Nixon did not kniw in advance his secretary ol .state would threaten restgna' lion. Two hours passed before his press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler distributed a statement declaring the President syould he reluctant to accept Kissinger's resignation on such grounds. Those in the world who seek peace and are f a m i l i a r with Secretary Kissinger's contributions to international trust ant: understanding share his view secretary's honor fcrencc after his meeting at the German border with West Germany^ foreign minister, Hans- Dieter Genscher, Kissinger appeared to have regained his customary cool and his sense of humor.

T R j G C i B R E D RY PRESS Kissinger's startling statement was triggered by press reports that he lied to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee last September about his I art in \viretaps the White louse had put on some government officials and newsmen. Visibly outraged and hurt, he SPRINGDALE - Sifting, through an agenda containing more than a dozen items, the City Council, at its regular session Tuesday night, discussed the 1973 Southern Standard Building Code and asked the city attorney to prepare an ordinance accepting the federally-subsidized flood insurance plan. Aldermen also okayed the final plats for two subdivisions and annexed three adjoining lots on Lakeview Drive to the city limits. City attorney Herb Ray read an ordinance to the council adopting Uic 1973 Southern Standard Building Code to the Springdale Municipal Code. In adopting the 1973 update of the Building Code to replace the 1961) edition presently used, three amendments concerning building permit fees were made. ·Ray explained that when the 1969 Southern Standard Building Code was adopted, the city amended it to dis'.injuish between commercial .Jiid resi dential permit lee schedules. The proposed 1973 Code will be amended in this way also. Ray said. Under the proposed 1973 amended Code, houses to he built will be evaluated price wise on a flat rate schedule of $14 per square foot of space In the past, a rate of S5 per square foot was used in eva luating houses containing under 909 square feet, and SB per square foot for houses con taining over 900 square feet. This distinction will be droppcc if the council accepts the pro posd ordinance. KA1SE FEE S C H E D U L E .The third amendment to tin 1973 Code would raise Un- building p e r m i t fee schedule The 1973 Code in its origin!) f o r m provides for an incrcasi in building permit fees., ai increase councilmcn felt was too large. In the proposed ordinance the residential permit fee: would be increased but not a much as suggested in the 197: Code. Instead of a graduate! scale for residential perm) fees, a flat rate of $2 per SI.00 evaluation would b- charged. S a contractor building a $25.00 home would pay a S50 permit fee under the new rate. Mdcrmen noted that (his is less than the SOS charged by Fayetteville and Rogers for the same home. The council listened as the lengthy ordinance was read for the first time and then voted to place it on the] second r e a d i n g at the nexliDrimmgnt council meeting. ood zones. BUILDING SPECIFICATIONS It would also demand that ic city enforce certain building pecificatimns for new struc- ures to be built in these flood ones. The council decided not o okay the program because f this. But Mayor Phillips told alder- nen that legislation has been assed which will make the lorps of Engineers designate lood zones by mid-1975. After hcse flood 3ones have been lesignated, structures built vithin their boundaries must be ble to obtain flood insurance r they will not be able to cceive federal money in )uiiding loans. The cities of Rogers and Fay- ttevillc have both passed the l o o d insurance program, hangar 'hillips said. In effect, the -shape. rogram will be enforced whe- her or not the council approves t. he pointed out. except that roperty owners won't be able o get the insurance unless the ity floes formally agree to the irogram. The council told Ray draw up an ordinance accepting the program. The council approved the inal plat for the Broad more Acres Subdivision and the Pleasant Place Subdivision at its Tuesday session. Both plat; were previously approved b the city's planning commission I I K O A D M O R E ACHES Broadmore Acres, owned b} Tom Hayes, is located on the north side of Elm Springs Road west of the old White Dairy The land was brought in as single-family rcsidenti.il.

"I do not apologize for it. Kissinger said of attempts to plug what he described as national security leaks. "It is not a shady affair, as has been alleged. It followed legal procedures. I fully testified to it and stand ready to testify again »fore any appropriate committee.' 1 Kissinger told the scores of newsmen: "I hope none of you are ever in a position that you lave to prove the negative of a mowledge." He railed that things had corne to such a pass in Amerca that "unnamed sources' can attack the credibility and the lonor of senior officials of the government without even being asked to identify themselves."

One of the firemen, Frank L. Byers. was in critical condition. The others v.'ere in good condition, hospital officials said. Deputy Fire Chief Claud Lemke Jr. said the stale crime laboratory identified the gas in its preliminary report as hydrogen suffide, which he said is a "very dangerous and deadly gas" in high concentrations. The firemen were called to the refinery after an explosion and were overcome by the gas as they entered a warehouse. Lemkc said the fire ignited a stockpile of chemicals which gave off the gas. He said one of the firemen described the b u r n i n g chemicals as "a puddle of green liquid that bubbled and gave off fumes."
