Nixon reviews domestic issues

in White House news

WASHINGTON (tP) - Presi-
dent Nixon, in his third news
conference of the year, disclos-
ed yesterday that he may tem-
porarily permit unlimited im-
ports of foreign beef as an
anti-inflation maneuver.
Nixon, who limited questions
to domestic issues, said he was
concerned because "meat pric-
es particularly are beginning to
rise again," although he found
other news from the inflation
front generally "pretty good."
The President said the ques-
tion of whether to sign or
veto a higher education bill in-
cluding antibusing provisions is
"one of the closest calls I've had

since being in this office."
While Nixon described the
antibusing section as vague and
ambiguous, he said congression-
al leaders suggest it would be
"highly doubtful" that he could
get the higher education bill
and, at the same time, separate
and more stringent antibusing
legislation should he exercise a
Asked about the possible use
of federal use of troops to po-
lice Democratic and Republican
conventions this summer, Nixon
said they would be used only
if local authorities asked for

have another Chicago situa-
tion," he said, referring to vio-
lence at the Democratic conven-
tion there in 1968.
Nixon said he . thought the
young people were "turned off"
on massive demonstrations and
On another politics-related
subject, the- President said the
White House had "no involve-
ment whatever" in the attempt-
ed bugging of the Democratic
National Committee headduar-
ters here.
When questioned about tax
reform, an issue emphasized by
Sen. George McGovern (D-S.
D.), his potential Democratic
opponent, Nixon said he will
present a reform plan to Con-
gress before submitting a new
federal budget next January.
Later he indicated he would
be talking about some aspects
of his tax revision blueprint
during the fall campaign.
Nixon described a value-add-
ed tax - a variety of national
sales tax - as a "possible ap-
proach." But he said he would
recommend such a levy only if
it did not bear most heavily on
those least able to pay.
On two controversial subjects,
Nixon stood by his associates:
-He approves a decision by
his campaign finance manager,
former Secretary of Commerce
Maurice Stans, to keep secret
the sources of $10 million in
contributions received before a
new law on reporting "cam-
paign gifts went into effect.
Nixon argued Congress could
have required such disclosure
had it wanted to do so.
-He approves a decision by
Laird to forego possible court
martial proceedings and simply
demote and retire the former
Air Force commander in Viet-
nam, Lt. Gen. John D. Lavelle,
who went beyond presidential
directives in ordering bombing
m i s s i o n s over North
Vietnam earlier this year.

Miami court strikes
down anti-gay laws
MIAMI, Fla. (P) - Two Miami Beach ordinances outlawing
female impersonation were struck down yesterday, prompting
cheers of "bring out the gowns" from gay activists leaders who
feared arrest at national political conventions in Miami Beach.
U.S. District Court Judge William Mehrtens ruled the two
laws invalid on grounds they were vague, overbroad and discrimi-
nated against men. He enjoined police from basing arrests on them.
One law stricken by the judge made it illegal for a man to
impersonate a woman; the second outlaws a man "wearing a dress
not becoming to his sex."
Mehrtens' hearing featured testimony by Miami Beach Police
Chief Rocky Pomerance, a 250-pounder who was given a "male or
female" quiz on various items of wearing apparel by Bruce Rogow
of Miami, attorney for the Ameircan Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
