(AP) -- Flamboyant businessman Glenn W. Turner's unstoppable image remains intact. A jury beset with discord has given the Orlando promoter and seven of his associates a mistrial. But the federal government kept its brakes on the 8th-grade dropout who convinced thousands to invest in his cosmetics and motivational businesses. When the nine-month trial on mail fraud and conspiracy charges floundered on a hung jury Thursday, U.S. District Judge Gerald B. Tjoflat announced that a new trial would begin here on Aug. 5. He told defendants and attorneys they must continue to avoid discussing the case with the news media and public. Turner, who was dubbed "The Unstoppable Glenn Turner 1 ', in a book about his life and on a huge billboard in Orlando, couldn't talk .about the turbulent trial and its equally turbulent end in the jury room. But his broad smile reflected his feelings.

"The consumer, the little guy hat has to pay a power bill every monh, had an opportunity o lower his own cost of living by voting," said John Dumas, spokesman for the town and village boards.

House Favors Audi! 01 Federal Reserve WASHINGTON (AP) _. The Federal Reserve System would be subject to a u d i t by Congress' General Accounting Office under a bill given overwhelming approval by the House. The House passed the measure Thursday, 333 to 20 but also voted 224 to 19 to limit the audit to the Federal Reserve's financial operations and preclude evaluations of the agency's policies.

And he was willing to share i with all the world for just $6.95 jer car until the state attorney ;eneral's office stepped in. Taylor, doing business as VI.B.C., agreed in Pierce Couri Ly Superior Court to run an ad vertisement saying his origina claims were erroneous. In re turn, a $6,000 civil penalty wa suspended. The ad, to be run in the nex two Sunday editions of a Seattl newspaper, will say: "Contrar to what I previously advertised, the M.E.C. gas saving de\ will not save 50 per cent more on gas consumption. "The device is actually a bolt and two nuts which when installed under the accelerator will Irmit how far the accelerator can be depressed and therefore the speed at which the car can travel."

Niagara Mohawk, which serves 1.3 million customers in upstate New York, waged monlh-long advertising campaign against the takeover. "We have been here 74 years and we feel we are the experts in the electric utility business." said a Niagara Mohawk spokesman. The utility argued that the takeover's true cost would be about $8.3 million, almost double what the town estimated. The issue of whether the town can go into the electric utility business "will have to be settled in the courts," said Donald P. Nims, Niagara Mohawk dfc- trict manager.
