In the news
SAN FRANCISCO-A judge ordered striking police
officers to return to work yesterday as Mayor Jo-
seph Alioto threatened to fire any police who stayed
off the job. The walkout over a pay dispute severely
curtailed police protection in this city of 677,000, al-
though no major upsurge in crime was reported.
"We will run this city, no matter what it takes,"
said the mayor. "We are going to fire any officers
who are on this strike unless they get back to work
immediately." Police strike leaders had no response
to the temporary restraining order issued by Super-
ior Court Judge Robert Drewes. The court order,
sought by attorneys for the city, barred the strike
and ordered police to abandon picket lines, but
pickets were still on hand at precinct houses two
hours after the ruling.
WASHINGTON-Consumers Union said yesterday
it found insect parts, rodent hairs and paint chips
in a large number of 39 commercial baby foods
tested. The organization said that the contamina-
tion was found in about 25 per cent of the foods
tested, compared with filth in about 10 per cent of
the samples tested in 1972. Consumers Union said it
found problems with baby foods made by three
major manufacturers: Gerber, Heinz and Beech-Nut.
Although the rodent and insect contamination does
not represent a health hazard, Consumers Union
said, the FDA should take action to eliminate it.
WASHINGTON-The Air Force announced yester-
day it has grounded 240 F111 fighter bombers to in-

spect them for possible engine defects. The ground-
ing was ordered after fire broke out in a F111 as it
was preparing to take off at Nellis Air Force Base
in Nevada. A check turned up cracks in turbine
blades and the Air Force decided to inspect all
F111s with at least 300 flying hours on their engines.
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.-"When I first heard of it,
I thought I'd lost 10 million votes," President Ford
said yesterday about his wife's recent television
interview. "But," Ford added, "when I read it in
the paper the next morning, I changed it to 20 mil-
lion." First Lady Betty Ford was interviewed on
CBS' "60 Minutes" and commented candidly on her
famil yand views of life, saying that she wouldn't
be surprised if her daughter, Susan, told her she
was having an affair. The President, talking to
broadcast and newspaper executives, described the
comments as simply frank expressions growing out
of "deep concern for family."
PEORIA, Ill.-Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz
praised farmers yesterday as the nation's best in-
flation fighters and blamed the labor unions and
middlemen for the high cost of food. Butz, speaking
at a White House conference on domestic and eco-
nomic affairs, also criticized maritime unions he
said were refusing to load Russian-bound grain at
ports in Houston and New Orleans. "If the unions
. . . are so concerned about high food prices they
should stop some of the feather-bedding practices
that jack up those very prices," he said.
CAPE CANAVERAL, Flai.-Space officials will

try for the third time tomorrow to launch the first
of two Viking spacecraft to Mars in an effort to
find evidence of life on the red planet. Liftoff of the
Viking probe aboard a Titan Centaur' rocket was
scheduled for 5:22 p.m. EDT. "Everything is going
smoothly and I hope it stays that way," NASA
spokesman Al Lavender said yesterday. "We are
progressing toward launch and everything is on
LANSING-Although Michigan schools are slated
to reopen in two weks, 59.5 per cent of all districts
do not have teacher contracts. The state's largest
teacher union expects strikes in up to a dozen com-
munities. In a poll released Tuesday, the State
Board of Education said 315 of Michigan's 530 dis-
tricts, including 12 of the largest 35 districts, have
not reached agreements on new contracts for the
coming school year. "It's anybody's guess at this
time, what the number of strikes will be, but that's
what it looks like-about 12 strikes," said a spokes-
man for the Michigan Education Association.
The skies should be mostly cloudy on this last day
of classes, with a high temperature somewhere in
the 80's and lows in the 50's. There's a 20 per cent
chance of rain and winds will come from the east
and southeast at seven to 15 miles per hour.

Will airline fare increases
be linked to fuel costs?

TV tonight

administration has asked the
Civil Aeronautics Board to let
the nation's airlines automatic-
ally pass on increased fuel costs
to their customers.
Such a mechanism is needed
on an emergency, short-term
basis, the administration said
yesterday, because current con-
trols on domestic crude oil
prices are scheduled to expire
Aug. 31, thus raising fuel costs.
petition signed by the Depart-
ment of Transportation, the Fed-
eral Energy Administration, and
the Council on Wage and Price
Stability, said decontrol of do-

mestic crude will raise airline
jet fuel prices by not more than
3 cents per gallon.
The agencies predicted the
maximum increase in air fares
as a result of such decontrol
would be no more than 3 per
cent. However, the petition did
not state the airlines should be
limited to 3 per cent.
Although the board said the
surcharge mechanism should be
temporary, it did not recom-
mend any specific time limit.
The CAB, if it agrees with the
administration proposal, would
determine the specifics, possib-
ly including the sizes of allowed
Under current CAB proced-
ures, the airlines cannot raise
their rates without first justify-
ing their need for an increase
to offset rising costs. This can
take a long time and the air-
lines must absorb the costs
while the CAB deliberates.
