PAGES-TEN CENTS To Promote Male Mystique Chauvinists Capture 'True LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A California publisher is betting a bundle that male chauvinism is alive, well and profitable. Bob Peterson of Los Angeles, who has made a fortune publishing magazines, has purchased True magazine from Fawcett Publications. Aside from making money, Peterson say his aim will be to promote, "a definite return lo and recognition of the male mystique -- the 'Macho Man.' " Tom Siatps, the magazine's new executive publisher, says that the male image in America is at best battered and at worse unrecognizable. "Madison Avenue has done a fine job in unraveling the image that man had, so that today, just by looking around at magazines, television and most movies, you would think the average guy is a fop . . . a raging nothing," he said. "But damn it, that's not real. There are males and there are mannish activities. Believe it or riot, your average American male isn't walking around on four-inch platforms and a shirt split to the navel. And he isn't nisex." Siatos has chosen the boar as the magazine's symbol. He picked it because it is a takeoff on the male chauvinist pig epithet. "We decided to go them one better, make the pig into, a wild, raging, tusktacular that with one snort would send women libbers searching for safe ground," Sialos said, gr ning. Sialos, 50, a former publisher of Guns Ammo, has put lo- clhor a format that he says will make men feel like men and infuriate women libbers. True plans to hit such topics as adventure, sports, crime, outdoors, history-nostalgia collecting, machines and locomotion and current news. But no ex. True will leave that to Playboy and others of its type. A number of years ago True was the leading men's magazine with a circulation of 3 million. But with the advent of Playboy and other slick'men's magazines it went steadily downhill. Amnesty Program To Be Announced At Democratic Convention Clinton Hits Pardon HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP), Bill Clinton, the Democratic nominee for 3rd District congressman, said Friday the pardon granted former President Nixon was a blow to American faith in equal justice. Delivering the Democratic s t a t e vbgkjci cmhyypn speech, Clinton Ford's decision said President to grant the pardon "has again opened wide the wounds of Watergate, "It lias tormented the families of those already in prison for the administration's polili- cal crimes," Clinton said. Clinton, 28, of Fayetteville, got the keynote assignment te: cause Democrats hoped it ' would help him in his race to oust Arkansas' only Republican congressman, John Paul Hammerschmidt of Harrison. With other Democratic nominees seemingly certain of victory in the Nov. 5 general election, one of the main aims of convention participants is a victory in the 3rd District. Clinton has been made the "darling" of he convention. Hammerschmidt is serving his fourth term. RECALLS SUPPORT Bradley Jesson of Fort Smith, who introduced Clinton said that Hammerschmidt hac to have Nixon and former Vice President Spiro T. Agnew fly to Fort Smith to help him with his last campaign. They spoke of law and order on that occasion Jesson said. "Will those .two gentlemen be back in 1074 talking on pardons and paroles?" Jesson asked. Clinton received a standin; ovation when he was escorte( by more than a dozen county delegates to the platform. From the Watergate issue Clinton moved to "the even more troubling...twin issues o inflation and recession." Both affect the economy si mullaneously for the first timi in history, Clinton said. Re publican control of the White House for six years has brough the nation record interest rates prices, budgets, deficits and re .ation of inflation while balanc- ng the scales of justice.

Nixon's tapes and records to Nixon's control, an informed source said. The agreement by Philip Buchen, counsel to President Ford, came Friday during a two-hour meeting at the White House with Henry Rulh, deputy special prosecutor, and Phillip Lacovara, counsel to the special prosecutor. The two prosecutors objected that the agreement between Nixon and the government would hinder the continuing investigation of the Watergate conspiracy, the source related and they asked Buchen to nego tiate another agreement with Nixon that would be less re strictive from the prosecutors' viewpoint.

The gunmen have threatened to kill the hosta'ges unless an arrested colleague is turned over to them. Police were holding the man at the airport. The mediation offer was made by Ambassador Galal Ez zat Abdel Wahab Ezzat, but it was not known how it was communicated.

Premier Joop den Uyl said he would not attend a dinner of more as a result of the decision if major oil producing coun- ries to raise royalties and axes on crude. Representatives of the Organ- zation of Petroleum Exporting lounlries meeting here announced Friday that all mem- icr states except Saudi Arabia vere boosting royalties and axes by 33 cents a barrel on oil exports, effective Oct. 1. The hike would raise the average revenue for each government to $9.74 a barrel. The OPEC ministers said the like should come out of oil companies' profits, but oil company observers at the conference said any increase would e passed along, to consumers. Host oil companies have clauses in contracts with the customers making such increases automatic. Jnmshid Amouzegar, the Iranian delegate and an unofficial spokesman for Ihe conference, admitted that oil producing governments have no way to block consumer price in- reases.

OPEC said it would leave the posted price of oil at levels set last January. The posted price is the artificial figure on which OPEC members compute their taxes and royalties, and leaving it unchanged was evidently intended to further pressure oi' companies into absorbing the hike.

Government Finds Special Funds For Nixon WASHINGTON (AP) --| Barred from using its own money to provide services for Richard M. Nixon, Hie General Services Administration will dip into a special fund appropriated for President Ford, a GSA spokesman says. Government records show that the Ford adminislration authorized spending up to $450,000 for the former President a week before the new President asked Congress to appropriate funds for the transition. The GSA went ahead and committed about $6,000 of that be- fore Comptroller General El-| mer B. Staats ruled it had no: authority to do so. Meanwhile, President Ford's request for $850,000 to help Nixon through the transition from president to private citizen ran into stiff opposition in Congress. Members of the Senate and House appropriations subcom- mitles studying the request indicated it would have to be trimmed and demanded to know why Nixon needed more than twice what former President Lyndon B. Johnson re- ceived during a comparable period of transition. The authorization to start spendirrg GSA money for Nixon's transition came from Roy L. Ash, director of the White House Office of Management and Budget under both Nixon and Ford. But in a letter to Ash on Tuesday, Comptroller General Slaals said: "Afler careful examination of existing statutes, we find no authority to utilize current appropriations to the General Services Administration to provide services to former President Nixon." The government's chief auditor pointed out, however, that Congress had just passed a bill providing $500,000 "for expenses necessary to enable the President to meet unanticipated personnel needs" arising from the transition. A GSA spokesman said Friday afternoon the Office of Management and Budget had given verbal approval lo use funds from that appropriation to meet transition expenses in-1 curred by Nixon. A White House official,, who said he had not heard about the OMB action, told The Associated Press .that the White House expected to use the $500,000 for extra salaries required by the sudden change of leadership that occurred when Nixon resigned Aug. 9. In addition to those aides who stayed on to assist Ford's staff, 13 White House aides including former Press Secretary Ronald L. Ziegler, former appointments secretary Slephen Bull and former personal secrctar Rose Mary Woods remain o the government payroll whi working exclusively for Nixon It was disclosed Friday f h there are an additional eight 17 government employes still Nixon's service. They incliu the former President's person valet and maid, a milita aide, three'drivers, a medic corpsman, one or more G.F secretaries and possibly som Coast Guard personnel, ; working at the Nixon office a eslate in San Clcmenle, Calif. Alternative Service Is Anticipated WASHINGTON (AP) - Present Ford will unveil a condi- onal amnesty program next eek requiring repatriated etnam war resistors to serva om 6 to 24 months of alterna- ve service, according to ad- inistration sources.
