Proxmire, a long-time advo- · cate of curtailing spending on military and space programs, · asked if funding for such pro', grams could not be postponed · to help fight inflation, but Rush . declined to respond. Questioning by Proxmire - brought' an admission from ; Rush that he had tried un- successfully last week to talk : the Gulf Oil Co. from launching a new round of oil price in- creases because of higher - prices being charged by their ' Middle East suppliers.

AH buildings located within the special flood hazard areas must be covered by flood insurance after March 1, 1975 in order to be eligible for any form of mortgage loan from a federally subsidized institution or agency. After June 30, 1975 no such loans may be approved in cities not participating in the program. Immediately after receiving the notification, the city manager's office sent notification to local insurance agencies to inform them that they could be gin selling the insurance.
