But after hearing Ford's optimistic forecast Thursday, leaders of the group said many cities with high unemployment already are pressed to maintain normal public services and that the mayors will keep seeking an infusion of $2 billion in emergency fed- eral aid. Mayor Moon Landrieu of New Orleans said "many local- governments are finding it extremely difficult to maintain the basic level of police, fire and sanitation services that are essential if those cities are not to rapidly deteriorate." Treasury Secretary William Simon promised the mayors the adminls- ration "would take another look" at their request. But he said Ford has resisted the idea on grounds the federal Nixon's War Chest Holds $1.5 Million WASHINGTON (UPI) - Former President Nixon's 1972 campaign fund still has a balance of more than $1.5 million - but the funds are rapidly being depleted by payment of legal fees of some Watergate defendants. The Nixon re-election committee filed a campaign spending report with the Federal Election Commission Thursday, showing it had paid some of the lawyers' fees of former Attorney General John Mitchell. The report said it was considering doing the same for former Commerce Secretary Maurice Stans and Nixon re-election campaign lawyer Kenneth Parkinson. Mitchell's legal fees in the Watergate coverup case totaled $471,390.86, and the Nixon committee has paid him $200,000, the report showed. Mitchell was convicted in the cov- erup conspiracy trial. Parkinson was the only one of the defendants acquitted. Stans pled guilty to a misdemeanor in connection with an illegal campaign contribution. Parkinson has submitted legal bills totaling $73,393, which were being "reviewed," the Nixon committee said. Stans has submitted bills totaling $153,593.58. His claim included the $5,000 fine he paid after pleading guilty. . Stans .not only billed the committee for $18,818:58 in legal fees but $18,600 for the time-he spent in interviews with the Special Watergate prosecutors. According to the committee, Stans charged $30 an hour for 620 hours of interviews - an amount equivalent on an hourly basis to that which he received when he was finance chairman of the Nixon campaign. The Nixon committee said it was in- L.A.'s Police Chief Assails New Pot Law LOS ANGELES (UPI) - Los Angeles Police Chief Ed Davis has reacted to passage of a state law reducing .. marijuana penalties; He predicts it-will "double the number of heroin addicts within a year." Davis said Thursday the law "will result in a 50 per cent, increase in crime for the next two years," as marijuana smokers become heroin addicts, volved in more than a dozen lawsuits involving claims of millions of dollars growing out of the campaign. Several involved attempts to get refunds of campaign contributions, including one by Associated Milk Producers Inc. to recover $100,000 in funds it had donated to Nixon. The committees' financial records, filed with the new Federal Election Commission, also showed the committee in at least one case was suing to recover money - $15,200, from former White House counsel John Dean. It did not indicate what the funds were for. But Dean testified funds left over from money used in the Watergate coverup ended up in his possession and he "borrowed" $4,000 of it to pay for his honeymoon, later replacing it with a check. government cannot afford more deficit spending. The developments came a day after the annual U.S. Coriferencc of Mayors In Boston. Most of about 125 city executives who heard Ford's remarks traveled to the White House from that meeting. "We have gone through a rough time in the last few months and we are not totally out of the woods at the present time," Ford said In assessing the economic situation. "But every indicator I see is turning up, or it looks like it is not as bad as It was a couple a months ago. When you put them all together, it adds up to the fact that America Is going to start bounding upward." Ford predicted an expansion of job opportunities and told the mayors "your financial affairs inevitably will improve" and unemployment - now running at close to 9 per cent nationwide - will decline. He urged the mayors to join him in a major effort to get Congress to give swift approval to his proposal for extension of the popular general revenue sharing program, set to expire In 1977. Under the program, established In 1972, the federal government has returned about $17 billion in taxes to state and local authorities with few restrictions on use of the money. Ford said he was glad the Boston conference had rejected a resolution to change the revenue sharing formula so more of ths total money would go to the neediest communities. He said general revenue sharing still has foes In Congress and tinkering with the formula might defeat the whole program.
