San Francisco Mayor Joseph L. Alioto, a Democrat, said the problems of the cities demand Nixon To Be Invited To Mayors Meet Northwest Arkama* TIMES, Thun., Juno 27. 1974 a I, ARKANSAS Mekaffy Hospitalized LITTLE ROCK (AP) -Judge Pat Mehaffy ol Little Rock, the chief judge of the U.S. 8th Circuit Court of ' 'Appeals at St. Louis, will be hospitalized for tests, a spokesman 1 for Mehaffy's office said Wednesday. i Mehaffy, who was to bave presided over the the current circuit judicial conference at Iowa, is not attending because of ill health. There has been speculation lhat be might retire soon because of his health. The vacancy on the appeals court probably would be filled by another Arkansan. Mehaffy became chief judgi July 16, 1973.

He has been entitled to retire from active judicial service since July 1973. as mud) attention from the President as do international affairs. Alioto took over leadership at the conference Wednesday from Norfolk Mayor Roy B. Martin Jr., also a Democrat, at the conclusion of the organization's 42nd annual meeting. New Orleans Mayor Moon Landrieu was named vice president and Kenneth Gibson of Newark, N.J., was elected chairman of the advisory board, putting him third in line For' the, presidency. If tradition is followed, Gibson will take over in 1976 as the conference's first black president. The 350 mayors also asked both Nixon and the Congress toj :ontinue the New- Federalism by re-enacting general revenue sharing at least a year before its expiration in 1976. They called for an end to impoundment by the President of congressionally appropriated funds and sought quick passage of an $11.3 billion housing and community .. development act and $18 billion in transit subsidies over the next five years. MORE MONEY Administration emissaries to the conference said that was more money than the cities were likely to get in view of the battle against inflation through federal budget restraints. The major debate Wednesday came over how future revenue sharing funds should -be disbursed: Under the current population formula or on a basis of need. Dallas Mayor Wes Wise led a coalition of the major growth cities in defeating a move to ask Congress to give a bigger share of federal aid to cities which can demonstrate a greater need for the funds because of more acute poverty, blight and other factors. Alioto declared that the cities have been orphans who s t i l l have to beg for help "while one Arab nation is promised un- lesitantly $100 million in economic aid and Israel and Egypt are offered untold millions in nuclear capability. "The national administration persists in tis apparent ignorance of the debt - the continuing debt--owed to the cities of this nation," Then ne moderated his tone, saying he wanted to work with the President as spokesman for the mayors, not bicker with him. Alioto said he would invite Nixon to come to San Francisco n September for the formal opening of the final link in the Bay Area Rapid Transit system and hoped to confer wilh the President at the White House at least twice in the coming year.
