By The Associated Press While seven presidential candidates pleaded with the Supreme Court to release matching federal funds that would free their campaigns from poverty, President Ford said other candidates are broke because they waste their money. Ford, who was to travel to Georgia today, campaigned in Indianapolis on Thursday night. He spoke of prosperous times and called his GOP challenger, Ronald Reagan, irresponsible for suggesting that the administration is considering recognition of North Vietnam. As Ford campaigned, his aides said they expected a close race Approve Funds for Complex Funding has been approved for a low-income elderly housing complex to be built here. The federal department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has given preliminary approval to Max McCord, a realtor from Indianola, to go ahead on the construction of a 75-unit complex. McCord will receive $213.840 in HUD funds to subsidize rent for the low-income elderly. Persons living there will pay from 15 to 25 per cent of their income for rent. The preliminary approval means the realtor has to meet certain standards before the funds are approved. There should be no problem with McCord. said Kent Hall, an aide in Congressman Tom Harkin's Ames office. The complex is planned to be built in the area at Eighth and Forest Streets, just north of Gibson's. Crime Bill Approved by House DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A massive recodification of state criminal laws was approved 66-28 by the Iowa House Thursday night despite statements by members that it still needs lots of work. The final vote came after seven weeks of intermittent House debate on the 427-page measure during which 512 amendments were considered and 276 were adopted. (Voting for the bill were Reps. C.W. Hutchins, D-Guthrie Center and Carroll Perkins, D-Jefferson. Voting against it were Reps. Frank Crabb, R-Denison, and Opal Miller, D-Rockwell City.) . One of its severest critics was Rep. Norman Jesse, D-Des Moines, chairman of the subcommittee which piloted the bill through the chamber. "I feel like I've been pregnant for seven years and gave birth to a magpie." said Jesse. But with all its against Reagan in Indiana and that they planned to spend $150,000 to win the state's May 4 primary. But Ford is one of the few candidates still solvent after a Supreme Court ruling ordering Congress to restructure the Federal Election Commission. The ruling led to a halt in the panel's disbursement of matching federal campaign funds to the presidential candidates. Reagan, who has been borrowing funds against the amount the FEC owes but is unable to pay his campaign, joined six Democrats in asking the Supreme Court to delay its order that stripped the commission of its power to disburse the funds. Ford has received the most private donations and has the largest amount of money coming from the FEC, but he did not join in the court action. In his last financial statement to the FEC, Ford showed he was the wealthiest of the candidates in political funds. A bill that would restore the FEC's power to pay the funds to candidates faces a threatened Ford veto, but White House spokesman Ron Nessen said Ford is not planning to delay the bill just to "starve out" Reagan. In an Indianapolis interview, Ford said his campaign was financially healthy because his committee "is spending our money in a responsible way." Of the financial plight of other candidates, who had counted heavily on the federal funds to match the small individual donations they gather, Ford said, "Some of the other candidates have either been wasting their money or spending it unwisely.'' Joining Reagan in filing the plea with the court were former Gov. Jimmy Carter of Georgia, Sen. Frank Church of Idaho, former Sen. Fred Harris of Oklahoma, Sen. Henry M. Jackson of Washington, Rep. Morris K. Udall of Arizona and Alabama Gov. George Wallace. In Indianapolis, Ford denied a Reagan charge that the administration is considering diplomatic recognition of North Vietnam. "It has no credibility at all,"he said. "There hasn't been a serious discussion by me or the secretary of state or anybody in authority in this administration that we were going to recognize Hanoi. We have been working with members of Congress to try and find a way to get our MIAs (missing in action) back. But under no circumstances do we contemplate recognizing North Vietnam. It's a totally fallacious allegation and I think it's again a case of irresponsibility. . .." However, Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger said March 26, "We are prepared in principle to normalize relations with Hanoi." On Trial- Stephen Soliah's defense seeks disclosure of information Patricia Hearst is reported to have given federal prosecutors concerning a 1975 SLA-linked bank robbery. Soliah, described as Miss Hearst's lover, is on trial in Sacramento for the $15.000 Crocker National Bank holdup in which a customer was killed. shortcomings, the bill shouldn't be allowed to die, Jesse said. He expressed hope that the Senate, which passed the bill last year, would deal with some of the difficulties or send it to a conference committee to iron them out. The last amendment adopted to the measure would lighten the sentence for possession of an ounce or less of marijuana. (Voting for the amendment were Reps. C.W.

Turner filed a "brief" with the Legislature Friday supporting his contention that a number of state officials, including himself, are underpaid. It's "mind-boggling," Turner told members of the appropriations committee, that 84 persons on the state payroll earn salaries as high or higher than the governor's $40,000; 720 as high or higher than the attorney general's $29,000 and 1,827 as high or higher than the $22,500 salaries of the other full-time elected state officers. This does not count city, county, school or federal salaries. Although Turner has^ been sharply criticized in the past by some lawmakers for his "lobbying" to get higher salaries, his latest eight-page effort would indicate that he is undaunted. While the letter cites a number of instances where Turner feels higher salaries are justified, he hits particularly hard at the present compensation for elected statewide officials, including his own office. "Everything considered," Turner stated, "the governor's salary should be increased to $48,000 or $50,000; the attorney general's to $38,000 or $40,000 and those of the other elected state officials (treasurer, auditor, and secretaries of state and agriculture) to $32,000 or $34,000. "If something substantial isn't done, the governor will soon rank 120th on the state payroll, the attorney general 1.200th and the other elected officials 4,200th." Turner, first elected attorney general in 1966, fifth in seniority among the attorneys general of the nation. Yet his pay rank is 36th. Every year nearly all appointed state public officers and employes receive merit or cost of living raises, or both, ranging from 6 to 8 per cent or more, Turner observed. This year, he added, will be no exception if a bill pending in the Legislature is approved. "All of these officers are appointed and none is subject to direct removal by voters who may prefer another candidate. Your elected state officials must wage a statewide campaign to hold their offices. Beyond that they have substantial expenses. .. As attorney general, Turner said he has been involved in some of the most important litigation the state has ever had. He cited the Younkers case, involving usury; price-fixing cases; reapportionment: and the gambling, rock festival and massage parlor cases. "My office has recovered or saved millions of dollars for the people of Iowa through our consumer protection and land fraud division and in anti-trust cases involving many products from asphalt to tetracycline. . . "We have successfully prosecuted many murder, rape and other felony cases. "Although there are 4.000 Iowa lawyers, our 69 attorneys argue half of all the cases heard by our Iowa Supreme Court. "Though you may disagree with many of my actions," he told legislators, "they have far-reaching consequences to our citizens. The office, not the man who fills it. should be your prime consideration. The salary of the attorney general should be adequate for the responsibilities of the office, regardless of who serves in it. and it should be sufficient to attract experienced and competent lawyers regardless of politics." Legislators received $2.500 pay raises to $8.000 and a $5 raise to $20 per day for Turner, See Page 2 Prehearing Set in Power Squabble A prehearing conference has been scheduled by the Iowa State Commerce Commission for 10 a.m. Monday, May 24 in Hearing Room A at the commission offices in Des Moines on a complaint by the Board of Trustees of the Manning Municipal Light Plant against the South Crawford Rural Electric Co-Operative. The Manning trustees allege that the REC has no franchise from the City of Manning and is "unlawfully providing electric service to a farm, mobile home and dwelling house within the corporate limits of Manning." The Crawford County co-op contends that it has served the farm since 1947, the mobile home since 1973 and the house since July, 1975. The structures are adjacent and the REC says its line is about 1,100 feet closer to them than the nearest line of the Manning municipal plant. The Manning trustees say that the area in question was annexed by Manning in 1920. The ICC says two questions are to be resolved under one section of the law: "Which utility has the closest adequate facilities to provide service to the three customers, and is it in the public interest for a utility to provide service with the closest adequate facilities to serve the customers?" Also to be considered, the ICC says, is the preference of the customer. The order scheduling the conference said "it is in the public interest that an expeditious procedure be established for the determination of this matter. A pre-hearing conference should be scheduled at which the parties should be prepared to formulate issues to dispute, consider simplifications of such issues and consider stipulations or admissions to avoid unnecessary proof."
