Not Responsible for Accidents LONDON (UPI) - The dollar slid downward in value again today on most European money markets and experts said something must happen soon to halt the slide. In Tokyo and London, the dollar moved slightly upward against the strong Japanese yen and the weak British pound. But in other European markets, the movement was downward. In Paris, the dollar fell below four francs for the fourth time in less than two weeks. In Frankfurt, the dollar dipped from 2.3200 marks at the close of business Tuesday to 2.3040 marks. One banker said he, could think of no special reason for the dip. The dollar slid nearly one half per cent in Amsterdam. Many experts said freeing gold from the official price of $42.22 an ounce set by Washington might help stabilize the dollar. The London Financial Times said today many money men believe government banks may start selling gold on the free market in the "very near future." "The impression has been growing," the newspaper said, "that the 1968 ban on official gold sal^s could be scrapped formally in the course of this month." For five years banking bail on allegedly frittering away $30 million in cocoa futures speculation while heading the United California Bank of Basel, spins an eerily topical tale in the "Billion Dollar Sure Thing." In it, the U.S. president laces a crisis like the one today. World speculators snap savagely at the dollar because it no longer is convertible into gold. Russian sharpies plan to rape the dollar by making its currency gold-convertible, but U.S. diplomats learn of the plan and decide to counter by making the dollar gold convertible at $135 per ounce. That amount, more than three times the Central Bank price today, would foil the dirty Stock Prices Move Higher Today at Noon NEW YORK (UPI) - The stock market, down in early trading, moved higher around noon today with indications the new Phase IV economic program would amount to a return to the Phase II level. Trading accelerated on the New York Stock Exchange. The Dow Jones industrial average, off more than 4 points ait the outset, was ahead 3.91 at 901.94 shortly before noon. Advances led declines, 719 to 478, among 1,562 issues traded. Twc4iour turnover amounted to more than 6,700,000 shares, compared with 8,700,000 in the same period Tuesday. Cardura Corp. was the most active issue, unchanged at 6% on 193,100 shares. Metromedia was second, up V» at 13 on 136,800 shares, including a block of 114,900 shares at 12. American Telephone & Tele- praph warrants were third, up Ya at 6 on 133,600. Oils were mixed. Halliburton gained 2% and Natomas lVa. Ohio Standard lost 2 and Getty Oil 1%. Exxon and California Standard lost % apiece. Both a international plot and make the dollar supreme again. Find Jail Boring The suspense and timeliness of the novel have made it a best-sel\er in Great Britain, its author a much-sought guest on major television shows and resulted in translation into a dozen foreign languages: "We're going into paperback, of course," said Erdman, now living with his family and parents ia Fort Lauderdale, Fla.,' "and there's a chance Hollywood may pick it up." Erdman, who said he decided to write because "it was a bit boring, you know, in jail," started his novel by setting gold at $100 per ounce but had to go up to $135 "just to keep up with the times." He told UPI that in the foreign editions he may change the figure to "$150 per ounce." Must Get Off Dime , Erdman, who advised several governments on monetary matters before his bank got caught short in cocoa futures, was asked what he thought about the "real" monetary crisis. "Well, for one thing," he said, "the United States has been playing a very smart game. It let other countries take the brunt of it while making U.S. goods more valuable Which is the name of the trading game. But now the U.S. must get off the dime, I think." How would this be done? Charts Correction Course "Very simple," said Erdman. "But let's put it in the proper framework. The U.S. has been spending more than it sells, so a lot of dollars are floating around the world. About $100 billion are out now; maybe up to $60 billion in government hands." Normally, with the U.S. prestige behind them, dollars in that amount wouldn't cause a monetary ripple. But Water­ gate, an imbalance in trade and nagging inflation have caused many speculators to look to the yen and the D-mark as safer havens. So they have dumped dollars. How do we correct this? Erdman asked rhetorically. You sop up a lot of them through the international "swaps" system—using foreign currencies on tap or credit to buy up unwanted dollars, thus strengthening them. On July 10 the Federal , Reserve increased its "swaps" arrangement with other Central Banks by $6.25 billion so that, it now has almost $18 billion to play with. v Strategic intervention to support the dollar, says Erdman, also would help correct the dollar situation. Apparently the U.S., through other countries,' has been doing just that since July 8. But Erdman thinks that, realistically as well as fictionally, the biggest U.S. weapon would be to re-link the dollar to gold at a premium price, in the $125 to $150 an ounce range. "That not only would make dollar king again," he said, "it also would raise the value of that gold in Fort Knox to about $35 billion. If that were done, and currencies again were pegged to dollar values as< in the past, I'll bet the Dow Jones would go up 100 points in three days." Socialist Groups File Lawsuit Against Nixon mm Yoftk (upiy - The Socialist Workers Party and the Young Socialist Alliance filed a $27.3 million damage suit today against President Nixon and several principals in the Watergate case. the suit said the SWP and YSA and their supporters and candidates had suffered years of "illegal acts of blacklisting, harassment, electronic surveil* lance, burglary, mail tamper ing and terrorism." Among those named as defendants in the case, in addition to; Nixon, were Robert C. Mardian, John N. Mitchell, John W. Dean III, , H. R Haldeman, John D. Ehrlichman and Tom C. Huston. The class action suit, on behalf of all members and supporters of the two socialist organizations, asks that the defendants be permanently prohibited from wiretapping, burglarizing or monitoring of the groups' mail or offices. It asks that the defendants pay compensatory damages of $16.7 million and punitive damages of $10 million to the SWP and its members. READ THE WANT ADS!
