Zaire gets
German aid
West Germany joined a grow-
ing list of Western nations aid-
ing the African nation of Zaire,
and said it would ship $2 mil-
lion worth of medicine and food.
In Bonn, German government
spokesman Klaus Boelling said
the cabinet decided to send $2
million worth of food and medi-
cal assistance to Zaireans affect-
ed by the hostilities in Shaba.
Boelling said West Germany
will stick to its policy of non-
intervention in Africa and pre-
serving the territorial integrity
of African states.
He added that Bonn believes
it was this "very same motive"
that prompted French President
Valery Giscard d'Estaing to au-
thorize the French airlift of Mo-
roccan troops and supplies into
Zaire.
Chinese,
drought
TOKYO - China has called
for massive mobilization o f
troops, farmers, workers, stu-
dents and others to combat a
searing drought it says is threat-
ening the nation's agricultural
production.
The offcial Chinese news
agency Hsinhua says t h e
drought is the worst since the
People's Republic was founded
28 years ago, with hardest hit
areas in the southern, northern
and northeastern provinces.
BUT DESPITE the official re-
ports. some travelers to China
and Western newsmen in Pek-
ing reported they have found no
indications of a severe drought.
A Canadian reporter said last
week that rainfall statistics
made available by reliable sour-
ces in the Chinese capital indi-
cated sufficient rainfall in grain-
producing areas. The correspon-
dent speculated the antidrought
mobilization might be a political
campaign to heighten peasants'
enthusiasm for delivering grain
to the state.
In contrast, Hsinhua has re-
ported "little rain or snow" in
the drought -. stricken areas
since last fall or winter.

IT SAID that in Shantung and
Honan provinces, all vehicles
have been mobilized and even
wash basins are being used to
carry water to the fields.-
The only outside indication so
far has been a U.S. Department;
of Agriculture report that China!
this year already has bought't
more than twice as much grain
abroad as it did in 1976, appar-
ently because of a hard winterI
and shrinking stockpile of food'
grain.
It said 'China has bought 5.11
million tons of grain for deliv-7
ery this year, the most in threel
years. Peking purchased 5.9 mil-;
lion tons in 1974 and 7.8 million
in 1973.
N lational
FBI to query'
Weathermen
WASHINGTON - The FBI,
after seven fruitless years of
trying to catch leaders of thei
radical Weather Underground,
hopes to interview two persons
who recently surrendered to
face charges of political vio-
lence.
R o b e r t Roth and Phoebe
Hirsch, who surrendered to Chi-
cago authorities last month, are1
free on bond in connection with
1969 indictments for mob actionI
and aggravated battery. RothI
also was sought on a fugitive'
warrant.
Roth was wanted on charges
stemming from a street fight
with Chicago police during a
rally protesting the Chicago Sev-
en conspiracy trial, a few weeks
before the Weathermen's "Days
of Rage" protest there.
The charges against Hirsch
stem from a "Days of Rage"
demonstration in which women
members of the group battled
Chicago police.

Saccharin ban
alteration
WASHINGTON - The Food
and Drug Administration, which
is banning saccharin as a food
additive, announced -easerday
it will allow the continued sale
of saccharin pills and powders
if shown proof they are effective
in controlling obesity and dia-,
betes.
Under the approach announ-
ced by FDA Commissioner Don-
ald Kennedy, a saccharin, which
has caused cancer in laboratory
animals, would be banned from
soft drinks and other foods
sometime in July. Such use ac-
counts for 90 per cent of the su-
gar substitute consumed in the
United States.
"OUR INTENTION is to eli-
minate the risk of cancer from
unnecessary uses of saccharin
while continuing its availabil-
ity for people who need it for
medical purposes." Kennedy
told a news conference.
The proposed regulation would
require that any saccharin sold
as an over-the-counter drug car-
ry this label:
"For use as a noncaloric
sweetner when a sugar-restrict-
ed diet is medically indicated,
as in patients with diabetes.
Warning: saccharin may in-
crease your risk of cancer."
Kennedy said that based on

Canadian studies with labora-
tory rats and what is known
about cancer-causing substan-1
ces, "our scientists now calcu-
late that a moderate use of sac-
charin, the amount present in
one large diet soft drink, if in-
gested daily over a lifetime by
every American, might lead to
1,200 additional cases of bladder
cancer per year."
State
Henry Ford II
ends dynasty
DEARBORN-Henry Ford II,
who has personally ruled Ford
Motor Co. for 32 years, said yes-
terday he will share his leader-
ship power with President Lee
Iacocca and Vice President Phil-
ip Caldwell.
Ford, 60, who has a heart ail-
ment, had indicated he might
retire before reaching 65, He
said he was creating a new "of-
fice of chief executive" that will
"pave the way for a natural
and smooth management transi-
tion."
THE world's No. 2 automaker,
founded 74 years ago by the cur-
rent chairman's grandfather and
namesake. has always had a
Ford family member in its top
spot.

The chairman said the office
of chief executive "is not a plan
for immediate succession,"' say-
ing that over-all responsibility
for the company will be vested
equally in the three members.
However, Ford added tat he
will continue to hold the desig-
nation of chairman and chief
executive officer.

Honest man
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -
When Roger Oglesby, a city
service department employe
here, began digging for his lost
watch in a leaf dump, he found
the timepiece and also uncov-
ered a billfold containing $1,700
in cash and a $20 gold certifi-
cate.
The wallet belonged to Ogles-
by's boss, foreman L.C. Daven-
port. Oglesby returned it and
received a $100 reward from
Davenport, who said "I think
a man that honest deserves a
mention."
