"I know the Jews have to be housed somewhere," said one woman. "But why do they have to come next door to us?" She and others in the housing development in Vienna's Simmering district said they were kept unaware until a week ago that .the emigre camp was to be esablished in their neighborhood. Workmen on the building would not say what they were doing. Some of the people thought the place would be an orphans' home. "But then last week all of a sudden they started building a wall around the house," said one woman. "Next thing the barbed wire was.there, and one morning by the end of the week huge Red Cross signs were painted on the roof." Guards armed with submachine guns protect the camp, which is operated by the Austrian Red Cross, and police patrols in the area have been in creased, One resident said checks are made on people moving about the area at night Austrian officials said pre cautions are being taken lo pro tect the neighborhood, bu many residents still aren't sat isfied. Beginning in 1964, Jewisl emigrants leaving the Sovie Union by train were taken fo processing to the isolater Schoenau Castle 70 miles south ( Vienna. It was rented by the ewish Agency, and 70,000 Jews vent through there. Then last September a group f Arab terrorists look three ewish refugees and an Austrin border guard hostage, and he Austriai government ran o m e d them by closing Schoenau. In November, the govern- nent set up a temporary Iran- it camp at the Woellersdorl Jarracks, on the outskirts ol Vienna. B u t neighbors there also complained that they were cing exposed to possible terrorist attacks. WASHINGTON (AP) - In the first full-scale White House news conference by a president's wife, Betty Ford has said she plans to avoid political issues but would be happy to campaign for the Equal Rights Amendment for women. Smiling her way through a half-hour of questioning before an overflow crowd of 142 reporters and cameramen in the state dining room, Mrs. Ford said she will hold news conferences "as often as I think the press has anything to ask of interest." In Ihe wide-ranging session, Mrs. Ford said she favors liberalized abortion laws and t h a t she would encourage women to play an active role in politics. Mrs. Ford gave differing re sponses about her feelings on a second term for her husband when reporters pressed her on son Jack's report that she was upset at the prospect of Ford's running in 1976. Do you want him to run again? "I feel at this point two years is quite a long way away I wouldn't want to commit myself one way or another." Then, asked whether she would run happily with Ford in 1976, the President's wife said "It depends on the state of the country." For her part, though, she said, "I will not lake a politically active part in politics as :ar as issues are concerned." But, when asked if she would Associated Industries Petition Granted LITTLE HOCK CAP) -- Associated Industries of Arkansas vas authorized Wednesday to ntervene in Arkansas Power £ ,ight Go's, application for a $36.5 million rate increase.
