(Jalesburg Regisfer-Mai) GAfcfeS&tfftG, liL» MON., JULY 9,1973 SEC. 2 Page 1? For Murder Plot BEIRUT (UP!) - Th <5 Iraqi regime of President Ahmed Hassan AI Bakr announced today the execution of 13 more persons convicted of plotting to kill Bakr and his deputy, Saddam Hussein. The executions, which oc curred late Sunday, raised to 36 the number of persons executed •in Iraq over the past two days irt connection with the reported plot to assassinate Bakr. Three-Man Court The official Baghdad Radio said a special, three-man court also sentenced three other persons to jail terms of "several years" and acquitted 20 others. Baghdad Radio said Bakr himself approved the sentences. The 13 men executed late Sunday, according to the radio, included Mohammed Fade!, chief of the ruling Baath party's military affairs office. Abdel Khalek El-Samerral, described by Arab political experts as the No. 3 ranked man in the Iraq hierarchy, also was named as a participant in the plot to kill Bikr. Baghdad Rdid said he was sentenced to die, but added that Bakr commuted the sentence and reduced it to life imprisonment. Firing Squad The radio did not say how the 13 men died, but tradition in Iraq calls for death by firing squad for military men and hanging for civilians. Bakr and Hussein escaped death by "divine intervention," Baghdad Radio said earlier. The assassination reportedly was planned for June 30 upon Bakr's return from a visit to Poland. Hussein, the radio said, planned to go to Baghdad's airport to greet Bakr. Bakr's plane arrived" two hours behind schedule, the radio said, thus upsetting the reported assassination plans. One other government minister did die after he was lured, as part of the plot, to a state dinner, seized there and then shot during a flight to the Iran border by his kidnapers.

UNIFAX World 9 s Money LONDON (UPI) - World money markets reacted nervously today to weekend reports from Basel, Switzerland that world bankers may move to defend the U.S. dollar and to hints the United States may intervene in the markets to halt the dollar's slide. The American currency plunged to all-time record lows in Tokyo and Hong Kong today, dropped in Singapore, London, Zurich and Paris but rose on some other European currency exchanges Gold, which usually rides the | them out other end of the dollar seesaw, slipped back in price on London's big bullion market as the dollar climbed in Europe. Its price was fixed at $126 an ounce at the morning session, down $1 an ounce from Friday's fixed price.

Phone 343-9004 USUALLY SAME DAY SERVICE By United Press International Authorities across the country are raiding blue movies, confiscating hard-core sex books, and passing new antipor- nography laws in response to the Supreme Court's ruling letting states set their own guidelines on obscenity. A UPI survey Saturday showed that for purveyors of pornography, the heat is on. Adult bookstores in many areas may soon carry only "soft" porn and the near total nudity in girlie magazines could disappear. Playboy magazine, which already has been taken from the stands in many towns, has said it will make "editorial adjustments," especially in the photography in future issues,. as a result of the ruling. The high court ruled last month ithat cities end states could decide what should be banned as obscene based on "average persons applying community standards." The new decision threw out the older "rule - of - thumb" that material must be "utterly without redeeming social value" to be judged obscene. Some communities took the ruling as a go-ahead to impose tougher measures against pornography and flush out blue merchandise. Others were slower to move, pondering how they can make the ruling stick. In some states such as Texas and Colorado, existing laws, mads in' accordance with the old "social value" ride, rendered crackdowns impossible pending a change in the laws. Drug Firm Prices Because of the vagueness of the "community standards" ruling, many authorities were cracking down on obvious hard-core pornography b]it were hesitant to move against borderline cases. ' In New York City, vice squad detectives confiscated thousands of hard - core X - rated movies from a film company in the largest porn raid since the court ruling. In Boston, which has banned almost anything sexually graphic, the federal and local government authorities announced a coordinated drive against smut merchants. Idaho has passed a new state law against obscene publications which went into effect July 1. In Colorado, the; Denver City Council plans ito consider a pornography ordinance _ that [would make it illegal'to promote or possess obscene materials outside the privacy of the home. In New Orleans, three obscenity cases have been tried, WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen. Gaylord- Nelson, P-Wis., said today he finds unsatisfactory the. drug industry's "glib explanations" as to why it sells some drugs overseas for half- the price charged Americans. Nelson said his view is supported by a decision by U.S. District Court Judge Sylvester E. Ryan finding the practice of the drug firms in enforcing its ClEflRflNI) Its Summer Clearance Time at James Patrick Men's Wear.

Cherry Sr. two-price; system a violation of the antitrust laws. . .., As chairman of the monopoly subcommittee of the Senate Select Committee on Small Business, Nelson has conducted hearings on drug pricing practices over a period of five years. When on Sept. 29, 1972, he attacked the two-price system, he said, (Eli tally & Co., issued a statement which cited variations in "wage rates,- distribution .costs, price and wage controls, taxes, import duties, revaluations of currency and sources of raw materials" as justifying different prices "from one marketplace to another." . But that explanation does not hold up in light of a Justice Department study, Nelson said. It found that "many American drug companies sell drugs to domestic wholesalers at different prices depending on where the drug is to be used," he said. "If the domestic wholesaler states that the drug •will be shipped overseas, his price may be a third to a half lower than if he were to sell it to domestic users." In view of that, he asked, "what happens to the drug industry's glib explanations as to why they charge American consumers up to two OP more times the prices they charge foreign consumers, in spite of the added transportation costs to ship drugs overseas?" Nelson's statement was made in a speech prepared for delivery to the Senate. It was accompanied by a chart of domestic and foreign prices for drugs manufactured by 13 U.S. firms. In each instance, the overseas price was lower. Bristol Myers' Salutensin tabs, for example, sold for $35 per 1,000 overseas and $65.16 at home, Nelson's chart showed. He said that when drugs are shipped overseas the drug firms use the threat of lawsuits to prevent wholesalers and potential importers from buying them back and selling them at less than the domestic price. That practice has been found illegal in the U.S. District Court in New York, he said. raphy resulting in itihe closing of two adult theatres, and in Passaic, N.J., police raided three theaters, seizing three X-rated films and,,arresting five persons including Georgina Spclvin, star of the "Devil and Miss Jones." They were charged with "uttering or-exposing to the view of others obscene or indecent pictures." In Austin,* Tex., all sex film houses have either closed down or switch to "soft" X-rated movies. In Albermade County, Va, the sheriff gave bookstore owners until today to remove Playboy arid Penthouse magazines from their shelves. Crash Kills Two CHICAGO (UPI) - Timothy Loohey, 23, and Lucille Ann LutkoWski, 18, both of Chicago, were killed, Sunday when the motorcycle on which they were riding crashed into a curb, |police said. WASHINGTON; (UPI) - The adminisiratUfft's 1 Phase IV economic ^gram|niay include a rollback in pricfes for gasoline and other petroleum products, administration sources report. The Sources said Sunday administration officials are considering the rollback as they draft the program that will follow the price freeze President Nixon imposed June 13 and said would not continue more than 60 days. Should the rollback be ordered, it would drop the price of gasoline at service stations in many parts of the country. It also would cover such products as home heating, diesel and aviation fuels. The gasoline price rollback is among a number of captions being considered by the administration as it puts together Phase IV, said a Treasury Department official close to the government energy policy planning. Like other prices, gasoline prices are frozen at the level of the first week in June. A rollback would force companies to reduce prices below current levels and, if a freeze is added, hold them there. The Washington Star-News reported Sunday that a new freeze on petroleum products would be established at the prices that prevailed on May 15. Administration officials, however, termed this date "very speculative." The administration sources said the oil and food industries* where prices have been rising the fastest in the economy, would be the first industries singled out for Phase IV coverage. "There will be a number of announcements in the next 10 days or two weeks," one official said. Sen. Thomas F. Eagleton, D- Mo., who sponsored a bill giving Nixon the authority to order fuel supplies to energy- short areas, charged Sunday that the administration's voluntary program is a "colossal bust." Nixon should have used the authority to force allocation of fuels, Eagleton said. Instead, Eagleton said, the administration has "fiddled around with its so-called 'voluntary' program which has been a colossal bust." He said a mandatory program was necessary. Eagleton said independent fuel distributors had not received a fair share of the available products. He said both farmers and trucking companies continued to have problems getting necessary fuel.
