Headers Inflation results in more prisoners CoBtiaued from page 1 summit and participate personally. By and large, Ford sat through presentations by representatives of special interest groups who tended to view the nation's grave economic problems in terms of the plight of their own constituencies. Rep. Sam Devine, R-Ohio, observed at one point, "Everyone wants to exercise economy in every program except his own." Carol Foreman, feisty executive director of the Consumer Federation of America, told the President she went to a pre- summit conference on natural resources thinking the objective was to find ways to lower prices, but discovering, as she saw it, that fellow conferees wanted to raise prices for natural gas, oil or whatever interest they happened to represent. Ford, who displayed marathon endurance as more than half the crowd straggled away during Friday's day-long session, declared, "This is a welcome breath of fresh air to have this frankness and candor." One target of particular criticism from some conference participants, Federal Reserve Board Chairman Arthur Burns, insisted the easy money policies he heard recommended would fuel inflation and lead to even higher interest rates. At the same time, Burns declared, "I can assure you all that there will be no credit crunch in our country." While no clear consensus emerged, there was wide MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The money crunch is sending more persons to prison, contributing to an unexpected increase in Wisconsin's inmate population, a Division of Corrections official says. R.E. McCauley, acting head of the division, attributed an increase in prison terms for burglary and theft to twin adverse economic conditions: unemployment and inflation. "These crimes are usually the first to be affected by the economy," McCauley said. The division has requested $104.8 million to run the state's prisons for 1975-77, a 27.9 per agreement on the need for tax cuts in the lower income brackets and a federal job program for the unemployed. Sitting a few chairs away from the President, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., was among those urging tax breaks for the poor, telling Ford that "economics without justice is false economy." Solomon Harge, a black representative of consumers, said: "The working poor have suffered enough. It is time for somebody else to bite the bullet." While many industry representatives voiced agreement with aid to the poor and the jobless, most of them urged policies that would boost their profits by giving them relief from federal taxes or regulations. cent increase compared with $82 million for 1973-75. Gov. Patrick J. I.ucey has said fiscal 1975-77 will be one of "severe pain and suffering" for state agencies seeking budget increases. McCauley said a loss of federal funds will require the division to pay salaries of 130 parole and probation workers in the Milwaukee area at a cost of $2 million. He said there are about 15,000 persons in the state on probation or parole and that about 19 per cent of those wind up back in prison. Even if the percentage of persons on parole or probation remains the same, the increased crime rale will add about 300 persons to the penal system each year, he said. The average daily population of Wisconsin prisons last year was 1,900 men and 65 women, McCauley said. As of Sept. 23, there were 2,372 men and 81 women in prison. Divison projections based on the last five years had indicated the prison population would drop to an average of 1,-SOO persons. Because of the increase, McCauley said, the division is asking for 466 more employes and 101 more probation and parole officers. Fwfis Falls (Ml.) hirill Sal.

He said it would support 350,000 homes. The program being considered by the administration would be known as a tandem program. A home buyer would obtain a mortgage at an interest rate below the going rate. The federal government then would buy the mortgage from the issuer, such as a savings and loan association, at the higher rate. Lynn noted that a similar program for $3 billion was put into operation earlier this year, and the money was used up in two months. A bill has been introduced in the Senate for the same kind of program, but Lynn said it lacks the flexibility that the administration wants. It was learned elsewhere that Lynn has asked the Senate sponsors to delay action on their bill until the administration version is ready. Lynn told newsmen that he should have the authority in a tandem program to make the subsidies available if interest rates stayed high and to suspend them if they began falling. But he warned against expectations that such a program, or any other emergency support for housing, would turn the industry around from its depressed state this year. "Thedieiscastfortherestof this year, no matter what we do now," he said. The long lead time required in planning and building homes means that it would take months for the impact of a program to be felt, he explained. The government already has extended about $17 billion in various forms of aid to the housing industry this year. MINNEAPOLIS GRAIN MARKET (Sept. 27) MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.

Nixon, has asked President Ford for a pardon, a White House spokesman says. Colson's lawyer submitted a pardon petition to Ford within a week or two after Ford granted an unconditional pardon to Nixon on Sept. 8, Deputy Press Secretary John W. Hushen said on Thursday night. Hushen said the petition was forwarded routinely lo Justice Department pardon attorney Lawrence Traylor and is still being evaluated for a recommendation to Ford. Colson, a former political adviser to Nixon, is serving a prison term of one to three years on his plea of guilty last June to obstruction of justice. He admitted spreading derogatory information about Daniel Ellsberg in 1971 after Ellsberg was charged in the Pentagon papers case.

In a telephone call to CBS radio in New York, Miss Hutchinson, a veteran USIS officer in Latin American countries, said: "Well, there's been no violence and I believe they're waiting for a commission of people to come to negotiate with them. "Frankly, I'm getting a little hungry. But that's OK." Consul de Corral told The Associated Press by phone that the gunmen had planted bombs in the consulate and were threatening to set them off. He said the hostages were being well treated, but there was not enough food for a long siege. The bandits' leader, Radames Mendez Vargas, identified the group as "The Freedom Movement of 12th January." It was not immediately known what the date signified. Vargas was released from prison six months ago by Dominican President Jpaquim Bclaguer after serving six years of a 20-year term for hijacking a Venezuelan plane in 1968. Talking to NBC radio by phone, Vargas demanded the freedom of "our leader, Dr. Plenao Mates, and 37 companion prisoners." He also demanded the $1 million from "the American imperialist government." Americans eat more sugar than flour, according to the Diet Workshop, a group weight control program. We each eat an average of two pounds of sugar a week. More than 70 per cent of it is in processed foods. PATRONS OF KIDDIE KAPERS You are urged to mail your contributions by October 1st so we may have your names before publishing the programs.
