2 *.1Y Northwest Arkansai TIMES, Wed., July 17, 19741 TEVILLI, ARKANSAS GOP Committee Says Ford's Travels Costing Too Much WASHINGTON (AP) -- Top aide's of Vice President Gerald R. Ford, reviewing the mounting expenses of his cross-country travels, have decided the Republican National Committee has been paying more of the cost than is fair. From now on, they say, the GOP will only pick up the tab for that portion of a trip directly related to politics. In the past, the' party has paid for all of any trip that included a political appearance. When Ford flew last month to the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., then stopped at a GOP fundraiser in Columbus, Ohio, on the wa home, the party paid for the whole thing, the aides say. Ford's basic policy is that the government · pays for official trips, speeches to organizations, dedications of hospitals or dams and speeches to legislatures The 'party pays for political trips and picks up the tab for his staff on rest stops. An examination of Ford's bills and receipts, made avail able to the Associated Press by press secretary Paul Miltrich confirms that the GOP commit tee has picked up thousands o dollars in costs over the pas few months beyond those from strictly political ventures. BASIC RULE "The basic rule was that, any stop on a trip was political the trip was political," says L William Seidman, Ford's assist ant for management. "W wanted to make sure the go 'crnmnt didn't pav for anything olitical." But Seidman, who has been n charge of making Ford's vice ^residential operation more cf- icient, discovered that the na- ional committee was often pay- ng the cost, but not getting any reimbursement. In a five-day mid-May trip ,o Hawii, the committee paid .he' entire 540,860 cost of a ^residential jet on a trip that ncluded six appearances, two political, in Honolulu; two va- :ation days on the island of Hawaii where Ford paid for his room; and two political appearances in Tacoma. Wash. E.ach of the dozen traveling newsmen paid the standard first-class fare, $874. However, the $10,ODD that was collected went to the Treasury, rather than to reimburse a portion of the $'10,000 paid by the Republi- ans. Two days later. Ford went to New York to be honored as "Farther of the Year," then spoke at Republican rallies in Wilmington, Del., on his way back to Washington. The committee paid the entire cost of the plane, $1.277. plus $99 in incidental expenses. The $103 paid by each reporter went to the Treasury. Under the revised system, the Republicans would have paid the round-trip cost from Washington to Wilmington, and the government would have paid the rest. The money received from the reporters would be divided. (CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE) four Tuesday afternoon in Washington Circuit Court. Like charges were filed against James E. Lewis, 28, of Tulsa and Kenneth Dale Drcw- ery, 22, of Lowell in connection with a June 25 jail break at the county jail. The two were recaptured within hours by Fay- cltevillc police. Work started Tuesday morning to repair damage to the jail caused by the latest escape and also to seal off the jail from the outside, particularly at a front window used in both escapes. Workmen are welding bars back in place in the cell window and also placing bars over the outside window used in the escape. Turkey Pressure Is Reported To Tone Down Industrial Poison Advice WASHINGTON (AP' Job- health researchers say they are getting pressure from the Labor Department to tone down their advice on how to protect workers from industrial joi- sons. Th pressure is said to be coming from the department's Occupational Safety and Health Administration, center of a new Watergate controversy also related to job-health rules. OSHA officials want health researchers at the Department of Health, Education and Welfare to quit recommending safe levels for industrial substances .that are harmful to workers, sources say. Presently. HEW researchers Issue "criteria documents" for different poisons, recommending specific ceilings which they feel will eliminate health ha ards. OSHA then must translate the recommendations into le .gaily enforceable standards. Critics often charge tha OSHA swaps lives for profits and sources say 'this has let OSHA officials to seek an em to HEW's specific recommen dafions. One source inside OSHA sale the agency's standards chief Daniel P. Boyd, pressed HE\V officials for an end to specifii recommendations of safe level! during a meeting two' week; ago. FELT NOT PROPER The source said some o Boyd's subordinates felt would not be proper. A spokes man at HEW said Boyd's ide had been rejected because th law requires HEW to recom mend specific ceiling levels. T h e interagency d i s p u t e comes at the same time as somewhat related controvers sparked when the Senate Wa tergate committee published memorandum written b: OSHA's former chief, Georg C. Guenther. It proposed tha Nixon fund raisers use th agency's record as a "sellin point" with the employers h was supposed to be regulating. Guenther wrote the mem five inonths before the 19: election, and predicted that n controversial job-health propo: als would come from his a gency or HEW during the cam paign. He also said he intended t clear new employes with th Republican National Com mittee, and said he had dis cussed with fund raiser Le Nunn "th great potential OSHA as a sales point for fun raising and general support b employers." PLAN REJECTE T The Watergate commute said Guenther's plan was re jected by Lawrence Silberman now U.S. deputy attorney general. But Ralph Nader's Health Research Group charged that OSHA apparently has imple- ented the Guenther plan, and inted out that the only job- alth standards now in force, ree years after the agency as set up, are for asbestos firs and a list of caiicer-caus- g substances. HEW recom- Hospital (CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE) immediate purchase of two respirators at a cost of $5,300 each with a third to be pur- chasad as soon as needed. Also approved was the purchase of a $4,5(10 fetal monitor. A contribution of $2,000 from the March of Dimes chapter will be applied 'o the purchase. Ricnard Williams, hospital administrator, reported on the status of the 24-hour medical coverage of the emergency room which went into effect thrre inonths ago. Th? board voted to extend the service beyond the three-month trial period with concrete proposals for contracts to be'pre- sented at the next meeting. Williams said preliminary studies indicate the service is proving satisfactory to all segments of the hosptal staff. Also approved, subject to examination by the institution's legal counsel, were agreements with the Northwest Arkansas Economic Development Districl for financial assistance in the purchase of ambulances and equipment for the Emergency Medical Service. The tentative agreements will provide a minimum of $13,400. ON EMS EQUIPMF.NT McKim asked that EMS (CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE) leave Cyprus. I felt that going into hiding was not the answer. .. ." TO AIAKE APPEAL After consultation with British government leaders, Makarios was expected to fly on to New York to · appeal to the United Nations Security Council for help in reversing the coup that unseated him on Monday. The British forces' radio station on Cyprus reported a calm night for the island, with only 'an occasional rifle shot and automatic weapons (ire heard." t said the curfew imposed by eaders of the coup on Greek lypriot sectors of the island had been lifted but might be reimposed later in the day. A pooled news dispatch late Tuesday from Nicosia, the capi- al, said shooting continued in some towns. But Greek sources n Athens reported the surrender of · pro-Makarios forces in ?aphos, the president-arch jishop's stronghold to which he had fled Monday, and the National Guard .whose officers 'rom the Greek Army led the coup appeared to be gaining control of most key points on the island. The Security Council met in emergency session in New York on Tuesday but after inconclusive debate adjourned to a w a i t developments. The United States and Britain urged a wait-and-see policy.
