in United Nations Debut President Links Food To Oil By WILLIAM L. RYAN AP Special Correspondent . President Ford's debut at the United Nations has reminded th» world organization It can ·xptct long embroilment in Hie harsh and complicated politics ot food, where search for accord may be more important than the quest for agreement on nuclear arms. The President linked food to lure, especially as it is complicated by energy shortages and regional conflicts.

William Fulbright in the May pri- Peaceful Integration Seen In Boston By Officials BOSTON (AP) -- Undaunted' by the apparent growth of racial tensions and resistance during the first full week of school busing, public officials said Saturday they were convinced that peaceful integration can be achieved. Demonstration and violence spread during the week from schools in South Boston to other white neighborhoods. However, Mayor Kevin H. White said, "The vast majority of Boston citizens continue to subordinate their personal feel- fngs for the general good and have compiled peacefully with the l»w. "For my part, I promised every parent in this city that his child would be protected, and I intend to do whatever is necessary to fulfill that pledge." Thomas I. Atkins, head of the local said branch of Saturday: the NAACP. "Integration will happen. It's just a question of when. In other cities, there have been problems for the first three or four weeks or somtimes even a year, 'out it eventually disappears. In Boston Uxat could happen nexl week, or It might not be unti" next year." During the first full week of court-ordered busing, whites and blacks threw rocks a: school buses and fought hand to-hand in high school corri dors. Shots were fired at police men and whites demonstrate in neighborhoods not yet touch ed by integration. A white school boycott in South Boston remained almost totally effec tive. Most of Boston's 200 public chools opened and closed qul- tly. But each day, a few did lot. Bcnealh the busing uproar in Boston is racial tension that ex- sts most starkly between two icighborhoods -- Columbia 'oint and South Boston. The Columbia Point low income housing project dominates a peninsula that juts inlo Boslon Harbor. Across an, inlet there is an- ither, larger peninsula, South Boston. Both are isolated by the harbor and expressway. Almost everyone in South Boston Is white. They, sit «n their doorstoops and look jcross the water at the yellow }rick highrises of Columbia Point. At the project, where virtually everyone is black, residents stare back at the white people's rows of wooden tenements. Many of the blacks are willing to bus their children because they say it will mean better education. The whites, who are almost as poor, say that if the blacks go to school in South Boston, they will also want to live there, and this will ruin the neighborhood. Friday night, a van-load of white youths was reported racing through Columbia Point screaming . racial slurs. About 500 angry blacks gathered on the only road out of the project. Police set up a roadblock and assured the blacks that-no troublemakers would be allowed in. During the evening, at least two shots were fired in the direction of police, and one of them hit a cruiser. No one was hurt. :ary, Jones said Bumpers may have alienated his original base of support. "Many Fulbright supporters approval by the voters. Jones campaign as indicative the governor's ambition over-rode all considerations of loyalty or of issues," Jones said. Jones, a Pine Bluff attorney and bank president, renewed his attack on the Bumpers- sponsored Public Building Authority as evading Ihe state constitutional requirement ol approval by the vo ters.Jones also contended Bumpers misrepresented the project facts to the state legislature. Jones also cited what he termed the "Buddies for Bump ers" pension law of 1973 as far worse than "Pensions for Pals' which brought sharp crilicisn on former governor Orval Fau bus. to a spokesman for Childrens 1 hospital.

Dealers in neighboring states can afford to ask lower cash WASHINGTON (AP) -- Following a five-year study prompted by the cyclamate scare, the Food and Drug Administration announced Saturday that it has established the safety of four common food additives. They are the first to be ap proved since former President Nixon ordered a review of more than 500. food ingredients and additives in 1969 after cy clamatcs were banned. FDA Commissioner Alexan iler ,M, Schmidt called the ac tlon "an important milestone in our goal, of assuring that al food ingredients, whether old or new, are evaluated for safetj by the best available scientific methods." Affirmed as "Generally Rec ognized As Safe" (GRAS) were the anti-microbial agents propy and methyl paraben, the sweet ener sorbitol and the thickening agent locust or carob beai gum.. Sixteen other food ingredient, were proposed for approval among them benzoic acid, so dium benzoate, garlic and dill.

Along with those actions, the FDA said it was tightening requirements on scientific proof of safely for substances first added to food since 1958. It established a process for inviting public hearings on other additives on the GRAS list before they receive final clear- ice. One of the first additives for which a hearing was proposed Is stannous chloride, to be followed later by ammonium ions, iodine and iodine salts, as well as aconitic acid. The GRAS list represents additives as well as common food ingredients such 'as salt and sugar which have been in the human' diet for centuries. Substances in general use prior to 1958 were exepted by Congress from a then-new law requiring piemarklng clearance of additives, To be considered are: --A petition to close an ally in Mitchell's Addition, west of Gregg Avenue, between Edgewood and Prospect Streets. --A conditional use request for a duplex to be located 570 572 Happy Hollow Road. --A" request for a use unit interpretation submitted by Dale Evans, 400 Mission Blvd. --A proposed final plat for Hyla'nd Park, Phase Two. --A report on a study of the Land Use Plan for the area of Hwy. 16 and Morningside Drive.
