On Knowledge Of Contributions Northwert Arkanws TIMES, Turn., Oct. 1, 1974 FAYETTIVILLE, ARKANSAS Milk Official Contradicts Rep. Mills LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- A| key milk industry official has testified in direct conflict with public contention by Rep. Wilbur D. Mills that Mills knew nothing about dairy contributions to his 1971 "Draft Mills for President" campaign. The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported today that the .estimony is contained in draft reports of the Select Committee | on Presidential Campaign Activities. The Commercial Appeal also quoted the report as alleging that Mill's failure to testify before the committee may liave prevented a "full disclosure of facts" about whether he received dairy campaign funds for his active effort to increase milk price supports in 1971. The newspaper s a i d Mills was asked recently about apparent conflicts between his public statements and sworn testimony. "There's a lot about the report I disagree with," he said. Mills is opposed by Judy Petty, a Republican, in the November general election. Mills twice declined requests to testify before the committee and Jo Johnson, his 1972 campaign manager, invoked the 5th Amendment before the committee. "The failure of Congressman Mills to make himself available for committee interviews, his campaign manager's invocation o f ' the 5th Amendment when called to testify under oath and the destruction of records by Ford Doctors Confer With Cancer Specialists WASHINGTON (AP) -- Physicians treating First Lady Betty Ford have conferred with some of the nation's leading researchers on breast cancer.

The statistical prospects for Mrs. Ford's long-term survival from the disease, found last Saturday in her right breast, were diminished Monday by a pathologist's report released by the White 'House. The report concerned lymph glands taken from the underside of Mrs. Ford's right arm Caliey To Seek Immediate Freedom As Ordered By Judge Firefighling School Set At Springdale SPRINGDALE -- The Springdale Fire Department will be lost to the first regional fire- ighting school sponsored by the Northwest Association of Firelighters Saturday. .

Theft- Reported SPRINGDALE -- Aubrey Childress, 1901 Pump Stalion Road, reported the theft of a construction wheelbarrow from his yard Monday morning. Childress valued the wheelbarrow at $45. and clothing delivered to the consulate will be shipped without delay to Honduras. NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Attorneys for William L. Caliey Jr. are expected to ask the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals today to free the former Army lieutenant immediately as ordered by a federal judge in Georgia. "The briefs are being flown to New Orleans this evening," a court spokesman said Monday. "We expect them first thing in the morning." Caliey, 31, is now in the disciplinary barracks at Ft. Leavenworth, Kan. He was convicted by an Army court-martial of killing at least 22 South Vietnamese civilians at My Lai. U.S. District Court Judge J. Robert Elliott of Columbus Ga., overturned Calley's con viction last Wednesday, holding that his constitutional right: were violated durin'g the 197: court-martial. Elliott ordered Caliey freed immediately. However, within hours Chic Judge John R. Brown ot the 5th Circuit granted an Aviny re quest blocking Elliott's orde until the Army had time to fil legal motions opposing it. The Army filed briefs Mpn day with the 5th Circuit askinf that Caliey be kept in priso pending appeal of Elliott's rul ing. The 15-page motion askei hat Elliott's order he changed give the Army the option ot ctrying Galley instead of sim- ly freeing him, then asked hat the modified order be sus- iBiided pending appeal. Should lhat request be reused, the Army asked for a 15- day delay "to study the opinion t the court below to choose rom among their legal alterna- ives their preferred course of action." In Washington, a spokesman said the Justice Department lad blocked a request by Caley for a pardon from President ?ord because Caliey didn't fit eligibility rules. Lawrence M. Traylor, the department's pardon attorney, said an individual becomes eligible for pardon consideration only after serving his sentence and remaining free for three years. He also said the department avoids acting on pardon requests while court proceedings are continuing. Caliey was convicted on March 29, 1971. He was sen- lenced to life in prison, but this was reduced during the military appeals process to 10 years in prison. He now has less than two months to serve before he is eligible for parole review. lerformed when doctors found a malignant noduje in the oreast. In the standard radical mastectomy, the right .breast and the underlying chest muscles also were removed. Cancer cells were found in two of 30 lymph nodes following two days ot tests. Breast cancer victims with no malignant cells in their lymph tissue have a 75 per cent chance of surviving five years and a 65 per cent chance of living 10 years. In contrast, women whose cancer has spread to their lymph system--a group Mrs, Ford now belongs to-have a 50 per cent survival rate over five years and only a 25 per cent survival rate over 10 years. Such statistics reflect large groups of patients and don't take into account individual differences. These could include the type and quality of post-op erative treatment and unique differences in cancer cell from one breast cancer victim to the other. The White House said special diagnostic studies would be conducted on Mrs. Ford to determine whether X-ray therapy, hormonal therapy or drug therapy - called chemotherapy -- would be instituted to "insure maximum treatment of this Aid Sough!

MPI (Associated Milk Produc- s, Inc.) may have prevented f u l l disclosure of the facts," e report said. AMPI records were destroyed 1971 in AMPI's Little Rock fice. Mills insists he knew nothing bout dairy funds -- legal or il- gal -- ever tunneled to the raft Mills effort in 1971. But Dr. George Mehren, MPI's chief executive in 1972, stifled under oath that Mills new of a legal 525,000 milk ontribution given to him by MPI in 1971. "Mr. Mills knew I gave it to m and he thanked me for it," lehren told the cornjnittee.

The remaining le- al contributions came through airy trusts. Mills contends that he was ot a presidential candidate in 971 and therefore could not iave violated federal laws [gainst corporate contributions 0 candidates for national of- ice.. The newspaper said the committee report also states that Mills assisted AMPI in an or- janized effort to "pressure" ,he Nixon adminitration to increase milk price support levels in 1972. The report alleges that Mills met numerous limes with dairy producers and their lobbyists, arranged a dairymen's meeting with the speaker of the House, suggested representatives to be contacted as cospon- _ors of legislation, and urged key officials ot the Nixon administration to lake action. "I never pressured anyone," Mills said. "That's not the way 1 do business." The milk price supporls were granted in 1971. ; Police Widen Search \ For Searcy Killer .'. SEARCY, Ark.
