Qalesburg Register -Mail GALBSfcUftft, ILL., miS., iOLY 24; f PAGK 13 Court Says HUD Must Free Funds BRUSSELS (ttf*l) - Foreign ministers of the European Common Market said today they were "disgusted" by snarls that forced them to meet in two cities on the same day and delayed action on how to h'Stfdle the "Nikon Round" of trade talks with the United States. Ministers blamed France for most of the snags. "We're moving ahead at the rate of snails in a barrel of tar," said Max Van Der Stoel of the Netherlands. ' Two Meetings First, foreign ministers met Monday in Copenhagen as political representatives of their own governments, then flew to Brussels for a second meeting, this time as the Common Market's council of ministers. Most ministers wanted to hold both meetings in Brussels, but France insisted on the separation to keep the Common Market from taking on a political tinge. In Copenhagen, the ministers agreed on the need for a "European identity" —a common European stand on major policies in relation to the rest Of the world. Michel Jobert of France resisted pressures from the other ministers to have this "identity" ready by the time President Nixon visits Europe in the autumn./ Europeans must define their own policies for themselves, Jobert said, and not for the benefit of a visiting American president. Tentative Agreement A statement said the minis* ters' aides would try to reach tentative agreement on a combined European policy in time for their next meeting in September. . Heading' the agenda in Brussels was French insistence that the Common Market reopen its mandate for the "Nixon Round" of trade talks, completed last month, to insert a demand that the United States return the value of the dollar to the level agreed in March after its devaluation. The other ministers opposed that move. There was no report on why Jobert raised the issue, but one British source suggested it was a form of indirect pressure on the United States to support the dollar, which has slid steadily down in Europe since March.

The Shah WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Department of Mousing and Urban Development (MUD) was under court order today to start processing immediately more than $431 million in housing funds for low and moderate income families that were shut off Jan. 8. U.S. District Judge Charles R. Richey ruled Monday that the Nixon, administration had unlawfully suspended the pro grams. The order to suspend the funds was issued by then HUD Secretary George Romney, but Richey ruled that Romney's order "was in excess of his authority and contrary to law, and the court has jurisdiction... to compel him to perform his duty." Present Secretary The order applies to the present HUD secretary, James T. Lynn. The programs involved in the case are designed to provide federal subsidies for housing construction by private enterprise for low and moderate income families. Attorneys for the administration had argued that the programs could be suspended because HUD was re-evaluating them after it had experienced difficulty administrating the programs "in a manner consistent with congressional intent as to the income groups to be served." Richey, however, said the HUD secretary's dissatisfaction with the programs "is immaterial if the congressional mandate requires that they be operated on a continuing basis." He said it was clear that Congress intended for the programs not to be interrupted. President Nixon, in a radio address on the budget March 4, proposed that the housing programs be replaced by revenue sharing and said that while honoring "commitments already made...we are stopping programs which have failed." with President Nixon in Washington tonight.
