THE NIXON ADMINISTRATION is tightening its special
revenue-sharing legislation to keep at least a thread of federal
control over local spending of the shared funds.
The rules to be proposed will not be as restrictive as existing pro-
grams, officials say, but will be designed to ensure that federal money
flowing to states, cities and counties will be spent for the broad pur-
poses outlined.
The special revenue-sharing legislation calls for eventually re-
placing more than 100 existing programs set for specific purposes.

neighboring Sudan of invading Uganda and threatened to "meet
force with force," a radio broadcast from Uganda reported last
night.
The broadcast attributed the statement to Maj. Gen. Idi Amin,t
leader of the military coup that overthrew the regime of Dr. Milton}
Obote Monday.
Two days after taking power, Amin announced that Tanzanian
troops were preparing to attack Uganda from the south on behalf
of Obote, who is in Tanzania. This attack never materialized.
Radio Uganda early yesterday broadcast an appeal to "misguided
tribesmen" who fled to the jungle to return to their posts.

A VIRTUAL BLOCKADE of Berlin by East Germany went
into its fourth day yesterday with West German Chancellor Willy
Brandt defiantly stressing the city's ties to West Germany.
The East German pressure tactics, openly supported by the Rus-'
sians, are aimed at breaking West Germany's ties with West Berlin.
These ties are disputed by the Communists, cautiously endorsed by,
the Western allies who want to safeguard their own rights, and con-
sidered absolutely necessary by the West Germans.
Berlin, surrounded by Communist-ruled East Germany, must be
guaranteed economic and political freedom in any future agreement
between the powers, Brandt emphasized.
PENTAGON OFFICIALS predict the big drop in defense in-
dustry Jobs will flatten out during the next fiscal year.
Discussing the new $75 billion defense budget, officials say de-3
fense-related industrial employment will decline by 80,000 workers:
in fiscal 1972 starting July,1. That would amount to less than one-:
third of the 250,000 job loss predicted for this fiscal year.
A total of $36.4 billion has been allocated for purchasing goods'
and services in the 1972 fiscal year, an increase of $300 million but
$9 million less than below the peak in fiscal 1968.
The new budget's spending proposals reflect a leveling off in de-
fense hardware and goods buying as well as a cutback in Vietnamt
war material
With buying for the Vietnam war declining, the Pentagon is now
emphasizing "investment proposals." This means catching up with;
war-delayed modernization of equipment and facilities in the United
States.and preparing for a smaller, perhaps volunteer, military.

AN ORGANIZED EFFORT began yesterday to have govern-
ment, corporation and union workers report abuses and corrup-
tion within their organizations.
In a campaign promoted by public interest advocate Ralph Nader,
employees were urged to "blow the whistle" on abuses ranging from
polluting the environment to consumer fraud and the Defense De-
partment.
Addressing the Nader-sponsored conference on professional re-
sponsibility, Sen. William Proximire (D-Wis) said he will introduce
legislation permitting federal employees to sue for damages when they
suffer unjust retaliation for reporting government abuse. He said that
current laws and commissions are worthless in this field.
Nader said he is establishing a Clearinghouse for Professional Re-
sponsibility where "organization dissenters on matters of important
public interest" could contact and pass on information "they think will
help citizens as well as further their code of professional employment
ethics."

T h e intensified bombing
raids by U.S. B52's over areas
of southern Laos continued
yesterday, strengthening re-
cent speculation t ha t South
Vietnamese forces would soon
stage an attack into Laos.
- Hundreds of tons of bombs
were dropped by some 400 planes
over the Ho Chi Minh Trail, the
network of roads and paths that
serve as supply routes for Com-
.. munist forces from North Viet-
nam to South Vietnam and Cam-
bodia.
Recent heavy bombing raids ov-
er Laos and Cambodia have drawn
charges that they violate agree-
ments between Congress a n d
President Nixon over the level of
U.S. involvement in Indochina.
Senate Majority Leader M i k e
Mansfield (D-Mont.) yesterday
reiterated his opposition to t h e
raids, saying they "wvent way be-
yond" a presidential statement of
June 30 pledging no U.S. air or

CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (M) -
The nearly flawless countdown
of Apollo 14 clicked steadily
onward yesterday toward a
blast-off this afternoon that will
send the astronauts on one of
the most crucial space missions
yet attempted.
If they succeed, the three-
man crew commanded by the
oldest of the spacemen, 47-
year-old Alan Shepard Jr., could
bring back fascinating clues to
the conclusive birth of the
moon and the solar system near-
ly five billion years ago.
If they fail, as the Apollo 13
crew did when an oxygen tank
explosion forced them to limp
home with the lunar module as
a lifeboat, the remainder of the
Apollo program could be in
jeopardy.
On the eve of the flight, Shep-
