SUSAN HEPNEK CORRESPONDENT Home Address: 24 NE Third St. Phone 932-2725 WASHINGTON (UPI) - In a move potentially worth more than $200 million to American consumers, the makers of S&H Green stamps have agreed to start redeeming the stamps for $2 cash per book. Such cash redemption is currently available in only 20 states, where the amount varies from $1.20 to $2 per book. But under a consent order tentatively accepted by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Wednesday the redemption starting at 50 cents per 300 stamps will be available nationwide, except for Kansas, where trading stamps are illegal. An estimated 32 million American families collect .trading stamps.. S&H stamps alone are distributed by 50,000 retail- To Redeem Stamps for Cash ers from 60,000 outlets. S&H stamp revenue in 1972 amounted to $363 million. There were 117,359,000 books of S&H stamps redeemed last year. Had they been turned in for $2 each, they would have been worth $234,718,000.

But Commissioner Mary Gardiner Jones, in a lengthy and strongly worded dissent, said the commission should have done more. "In my judgment this settle* ment accomplishes virtually nothing for the consumer. It accepts the basic unfairness of consumers and gives them simply an option of getting cash instead of merchandise for these stamps," she said. Mrs. Jones was critical because the order does not stop S&H's practice of letting only certain stores in a given area fjuy stamps from it. Mayor Daley DeniesRequest To Boot Out Police Head CHICAGO (UPI) - Mayor Richard J. Daley says there have been no requests for the removal of Police Supt. James B. Conlisk Jr. by Chicago Police Board President M a r 1 i n W. Johnson. Johnson also denied Wednesday that he had asked for the removal of Conlisk, and Conlisk said he knew of no move under way to oust him. The denials followed reports that Johnson had asked for Conlisk's dismissal because of alleged maladministration. "Johnson has not indicated any such thing," Daley said. "The reports are a fabrication. Our police department is as good as any other in the country." Conlisk, 54, has headed the police department since 1967 when reform Supt. O.W. Wilson retired. However, he has been under criticism for alleged corruption in police ranks, brutality and discrimination by some policemen against blacks and other minorities, and rising crime rates in the city.
