Following Address To Joint Session House, Senate Members Praise Ford's Candor WASHINGTON (AP) -- Con-: gress has made clear il wcl- coirtes a honeymoon with President Ford. But many members say that even though they like his style, the marriage may be rocky unless progress is made in'fighting inflation. Ford's two new economic initiatives--recreating the Cost of Living Council and calling an economic summit meeting --received widespread if somewhat conditional applause after t h e new President's address Monday night to a joint session of and cooperating," Kennedy Congress. House and however, praise for Senate members, had nothing Ford's candor, promise to put an end to covert wiretapping and surveillance and his pledge of "commu- tipn and compromise" with the Congress. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D- Mass., said Ford's accession to the presidency and the tone oi his speech marks the end Watergate as a political issue on which Democrats can successfully draw. .The fact that it w a s.Ford Standing at the podium of the House of Representatives in- Rtead of the just resigned Presi dent Nixon appeared to please most of his former colleagues. "He was the Jerry Ford we all know; a warm human heinj despite the aura of his high of fice," said House Democratic Leader Thomas P. O'Neill Jr. ef- Massachusetts. -"There's a great sense in thi fcall tonight of wishing him we! aid. It looks as though we're moving from an era" of con ronlalion to one of coopers- ion," said Sen, Lloyd Bentsen, D-Tex. "It was a bellringer," said Senate Republican Leader lugh Scott who earlier had aid his job had not been fun "or two years and, that he hoped t soon would be again. But many Democrats and some Republicans said t h a t vhen Ford refines his stands ie will get the opposition he expects on many issues. Many agreed that inflation is he nation's No. 1 enemy but said they did not believe t h e new President can balance the budgt in fiscal 1976 without cutting deeply into Pentagon spending. Sen. Walter F. Mondale, D-. Minn., termed Ford's economic deas "disturbing,' and "halt- formed." Two Harvard University economists, reacted cautiously and somewhat skeptically. John Kenneth Galbraith. an economic adviser to former President John F. Kennedy, said Ford appeared to be relying on t h e same policies and advisers used by former President Richard M. Nixon. James S. Duesenberry, chairman of the Harvard economics department, said he was skeptical of Ford's pledge to balance the federal budget within two years. : Sen. Jacob Javils, R-N.Y., ·said: "I don't believe that he can expect the defense budget '.o be sacrosanct. It's not reasonable (o talk about anccd budget in 1S76 a bal- withoul cutting · military spending. II an't be done." The Senate's youngest Democrat, Joseph Bidcn of Dela ware, said: "The important thing is his downplaying of the imperia side of the office. There will be a lot of lights in the Ford ad ministration. But they'll bi good, honest, clean fights. No one will try to intimidate yoi or watch your office or bug your phone. "That's what I Und so freshing," Biden said. "I._ got a gut instinct for what the country needs most."

Oil Drilling Sites Ranked LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Offshore Southern California was tanked only fourth as a desirable oil drilling site by 25 oil companies surveyed, a Department of Interior report stated. Heading the list as more promising drilling sites were the central and western areas Three Hurt In Two-Car Mishap S P R I N G D A L E - Three people were slightly injured Monday afternoon in a two car collision at Hwy. 71 and Sanders Avenue. .Driver of the car, David Y. Puryear, 50, of Bentonville was treated and released'at Springdale M c m o r i a I Hospital, as was the d r i v e r of the second car Esther Agnew, 61, of 519 Mill St. A passenger in the Agnew car, Ardyce Jost, 5B;' : of Lowell, was also treated and released. Police reports, indicate Puryear's vehicle was traveling north on Hwy. 71 .when the Agnew vehicle, southbound on , Hwy. 71. made a left turn into the path of Puryear's car. ·Agnew was cited for failure to yield right of way. of the Gulf of Mexico and the Gulf of Alaska. The Interior Department documents Monday showed oil companies thought factors against the Southern California sea bed were its high seismic activity, the lack of deepwater drilling technology and a shortage of drilling rigs, tubular goods and platforms. Drillin -has been going on for some years now in the Gulf of Mexico hut the Gulf of Alaska has not been offered yet for lease. Despite the reported disenchantment with the 1.6 million acres of offshore Southern California now available for sales, Interior Department officials reportedly were studying roposals to offer yet another Southern California offshore tract, from Ventura County to Dana Point,.for lease. The department reports on the sites preferred by oil com panics and on the proposal foi leasing another Southern California offshore tract were to be used in filing an environmental impact report concerning t h e Ventura County-Dana Point stretch. A draft environmental impact report is to be completed this fall and then made available for public review. A final state- fent is to be completed by mid 1075, incorporating public comments. Secretary of the Interior Rogers C. B. Morton is then expected to decide whether to lease the proposed area.
