The Washington Post printed a similar 'story today and said that associates of Ford'.have been working since Monday night on contingency planning for the transition to a Ford, administration.: ' The Post said' the transition plan calls for Ford to deliver a brief speech to the American icople, calling on the nation to unite behind him, praising the courage of President Nixon for stepping down and asking everyone to put the crisis needs of the country first. Ford would ask all Cabinet members and key aides lo stay on, with special emphasis on Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger, the Post said. 14 CANDIDATES The Chicago · Sun-Times said it had obtained a preliminary list of 14 potential candidates Tor vice president and former Defense Secretary Melvin R.

A c c o r d i n g t o Springdale police reports, the man allegedly accosted an 11-year-old Springdale girl at the city library Monday afternoon.

I was always a Democrat,, so I'm not ust talking a straight party irie.". Branyon placed much of the blame for the current political urmoil on a biased, liberal press. He said the news media -- especially television '-- has entranced and molded public opinion "far to the detriment of.our country. BURNED TAPES "This thing has been blown vay- out- of -proportion," Bran- ron said. "And all over a silly junch of tapes. I'll tell you what I would have done if I was the President -- I would lave burned all those tapes 'irst Ihing. No reporters, no judges ever would have laid lands on them." Branyon said he thinks a big part of the problem is that Americans have lost their sense of responsibility, willingness to share their part of the workload, and the family and social ties that bound them together in times of war and depression: "Americans have become lazy -- in both working a n d thinking," he said. "All anybody wants to do today is sit around and stare at the TV screen. They don't even talk to each other in their own homes. You can't expect a whole nation to stick together when even family can't be together." OLD MEN CHUCKLE Perhaps it's hard not to be cynical in the face of such things and in a time when the economy seems to be struggling to stay alive, when the political system of the most powerful nation on earth is under its greatest strain in more than a century. But somehow, the old men in Smith's barber shop are able to go on chuckling amid gnashing of teeth and wringing of hands. Sterling Byrd, a retired barber who drops in on Smith at the shop In the morning, said, "You know, I'm a Democrat, though I make a he personally vice president about news reports Wednesday that Ford had signaled his staff lo begin making preparations for his assumption to the presidency in case Nixon leaves the office.

The man asked she had ever read any fiction written by Hill. The girl replied, "No," and the man offered to show her some. The two walked lo another aisle where the man asked if he could kiss her and proceed to fondle the girl, police reports said. At this point a librarian approached the man and told him to stop, that such conduct was not permitted in the library. The child's father told police he would press charges. Jewelry Stolen SPRINGDALE -- Nancy Perry, 1311 Crawford Ave., reported three pieces of jewelry were stolen from her home last week. The jewelry, valued at $183, was locatrt on Ihe table.

Money Bags Stolen SPRINGDALE -- Two money hags, containing $1,520.13, were stolen from an office desk in the Ben Franklin Store on Sunset Avenue, Wednesday morning. The bags containing checks and cash were placed beneath a pile of papers on the desk. Store employes told police that shortly before the money was found missing, three men entered the store.

Authorities have agreed to tlrop charges of criminal tres- ass and disorderly conduct if le repeats his tightrope act on a lower wire in Central Park, for the benefit of local children. Wednesday morning, Petit startled awakening New Yorkers with his dare-devil antics atop the seven -eighths - inch wide metal cable 1,350 feet above the pavement. With a balancing bar but no net, Petit walked four times across the gap, at times Bitting or lying down on the wire. Awestruck spectators applauded Torn below. Police, rushed to the rooftops. Traffic stopped. It was an act he'd planned well in advance. He and a half-dozen Frencr and American friends hac roles as newsmen, delivery men and construction workers. They had taken some 500 pounds of cable and other equipment to the rooftops of the towers in lower Manhattan, where four of t h e m hid out Tuesday night. At d a w n they used a bow and an arrow to fire fishing line attached to the cable across the gap. Shortly after 7 a.m. Petit gave the city his act. Petit, who arrived in New York eight months ago, said he had already walked high wires between towers at the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris and between bridge towers in Sydney Harbor, Australia. He spent his days here juggling. performing on a unicycle and passing the hat as a street entertainer -- as well as scheming how he could put up a wire between the Trade Center's rooftops. . Why did he do it? He denied it was just f6r publicity. "If I see three oranges; I have to juggle. And if I see two towers, I have to walk." Nixon Summons Photographer To White House Wednesday and gubernatorial Baruch Korff, head WASHINGTON (AP) "It was pathetic. I had tears in my eyes." The President of the United States, in shirt sleeves, was greeting his family --.his wife, .wo daughters and their husbands -- in an upstairs room at the White House Wednesday night. The witness: Oliver "Ollie" Atkins, personal photographer to Richard Nixon in good times and bad since I9B8. Nixon, seemingly poised on the brink of becoming the first American president to; resign the office, was gathering his ready to intended introduce a resolution to grant Nixon im- family for a after hearing private gloomy dinner tidings from Senate and House Re munity from prosecution if he resigns. And the Chicago Tribune said a former White House aide was discussing Immunity 'or Nixon with key members of Congress. --Atty. Gen. William B.

On the opposite end of Pennsylvania prepared resolution seeking immunity for Nixon should he resign, a ranking GOP House member spoke of "many negotiations going on." Rep. John B. Anderson of Illinois, thirdranking Republican in the House, said the negotiations now under way include discussions of "how to make a graceful exit." But Anderson and some other House GOP leaders said they thought immunity from prosecution would be inappropriate f o r Congress to suggest. Woman Arrested For Importing Cocaine MIAMI, Fla. (AP) -- Customs officials have arrested a 74-year-old woman for illegally importing cocaine woven into a Colombian rug. "Who could have done this to m e ? , ' 1 Customs inspector Charles Harvey quoted Made line Partlow of East Strouds burg, Pa., as saying when the drug was discovered. Customs agents said one am three-quarter pounds of the co caine was found in about 100 small plastic tubes woven into the wool rug that Mrs. Partlow brought Into the country late Tuesday from Bogota. "She said she went to Bogota with friends and they took her to the market and bought he this rug as a gift," said U.S Marshal Melvin Mullis. Harvey said she carried three pieces of luggage into custom and clutched the rug rolled up in plain brown paper under he arm. He Trial Set Trial was set for Oct. 30 in Washington Circuit Court for said he unwrapped tlv rug, poked at it and white pow der spurted out. "Cocaine," he said. "Thi woman's mouth fell open." Officials said the half-incl diameter lubes ran the width o ublican leaders and party el- er Barry Goldwater. Atkins was there, as on many ccasions in the past -- in Pe- ing and Moscow and at ; inaugural balls ',-r to record a moment in history. Just a few minutes earlier he photographed the beleaguered President walking in the White House Rose Garden with daughter Tricia Cox. The White House press office eported Nixon and Mrs. Cox ust happened to meet as tha ''resident was walking home to dinner and that Atkins just happened to walk by with a .loaded camera as father and daughter decided to take an evening stroll. In the past this explanation vould, more than likely, have been the prelude to another public relation move -- a dls- ribution to the news media of official White House photos. In "act, two White House officials ndicated that was the plan Wednesday night. No matter. It was an evening .0 be recorded on film. Just two days earlier, the President had made public a :ranscript of a 1972 conversation with H. R. Haldeman that was judged damning by many of Nixon's bedrock supporters in Congress. In addition to talking about using the CIA to thwart the FBI's Watergate investigation, Nixon and Haldeman discussed the campaign value of behind-the-scenes pictures by Oliver Atkins. . . what good does an Ollia picture do?" asked Nixon. "Doesn't do any good," replied Haldeman. Perhaps that is why a White House spokesman said late Wednesday the latest Atkins* photos would not be made pub- lie. More likely this time the film was too private, too poignant. · - , "It was pathetic.

President Luis Echeverria said: "We are with the workers." On Wednesday, the Labor Congress, Mexico's largest workers' group claiming more than eight million members, gave employers until Sept. 20 to give the raises or face strikes at around 200,000 factories and businesses. The ultimatum came less than 24 hours after Echevveria told a workers' rally: "In the problem of inflation, we are with the workers." But his fi nance, minister, Jose Lopez Portillo, seemed to back off the president's statement, warning in a Wednesday interview tha steep pay hikes would worsen inflation and precipitate an eco nomic crisis.
