· · Northwert Arkansas TIMES, Thura., Aug. 12. 1974 ARKANSAS Justice Department To Intensify Efforts On Repeat Offenders WASHINGTON AP) Faced with rising crime rates, ; Ally. Gen. William B. Saxbe says the Justice Department is launching a campaign against career criminals "who are terrorizing our communities." The department plans a national effort to identify repeat offenders and insure that they are prosecuted more rapidly than other defendants, Saxbe said in an interview Wednesday. In addition, the department has quietly summoned big city police chiefs to a conference in Chicago next week to examine whv crime rates are soaring ' and what should be dona about '- it. Little Rock Pharmacist Is Charged LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- John R. Moseley, former chief pharmacist at the Veterans Administration Hospital here, charged Wednesday with sell ing 1,000 amphetamine capsules to a Little Rock police undercover agent on May 18. The Arkansas Supreme court reversed Moseiey's conviction on a similar charge June 10 be cause a police investigator was present and questioned Moseley during Grand Jury proceedings, Acting Chief Deputy Pros. Atty. Henry Ginger filed the felony information against Moseley. He said the case and the state's evidence would be indentical to that presented in 1973 Grand Jury indictment. The Supreme Court returned the case to Judge Richard B. Adkisson of Pulaski County Cir- 'cuit Court with instructions to quash the indictment on the drug charge and one alleging perjury against Moseley. Moseley was convicted in August 1973 of selling the am phetamines. Later he was con victed of perjury for telling the Grand Jury that he did nol make the sale. He received a 10-year prison sentence for each conviction to 'be servec concurrently. Moseley retiree in July 1973 as chief pharmac ist at the VA hospital. Saxbe said details of Ihe new campaign against "major crim- nals, the repeat violators, the very small fraction of a per cent of people who are terroriz- ng our communities" are expected to be explained in his speech to the conference Tuesday. The department action comes against the background of FBI statistics showing that the uum- jer of crimes reported to police increased 15 per cent nationally n the first three months of this year, compared with the same period a year ago. Taken with a 1C per cent increase reported for the last hree months of 1973, the figure indicated the nation may be ret u r n i n g to a pattern of continually increasing crime rates. On another topic. Saxbe said ie considers it impractical to ask military deserters and draft-dodgers to join the armed forces as a condition for amnesty. He said he will present President Ford with a list of alternative proposals by Sept. 1, but lhat Ford must decide whether Ins amnesty plan "is going to be cosmetic or genuine." The proposals under consideration, range from "extreme Ie niency . . . just the act of coming in and asking to be repatriated," to required service in hospitals or other institutions similar to the duties required oi draftees who s c ie n t i o us Saxbe said. Discussing gained con objector status, past crime-fight " ing efforts. Saxbe said, "We've been down on road after an other for the past 10 years' and none has led to a solution, "I think nationally \ye're be ginning to realize there just isn't any easy way, that the only way we can handle it is just to dogedly catch the criminal and put him in jail," he declared. The attorney general said the campaign against career criminals is "no big deal, it's not another rabbit in the hat lhat we're going to pull out. We've pulled out too many of them." Though details a r e to be spelled out later, Saxbe said he envisions a Justice Department unit working with local prosecutors to identify major criminals. ' "When they're apprehended, rather than getting lost on chronological order of caL__ and being delayed and delayed, give them a speedy t r i a 1 and get them off the streets," he said. The unit also would "be sure to ·call the court's attention to who they are," he added. Strong Turkish Leadership Influences Cyprus Picture A N K A R A . Turkey (AP) -lard-nosed Turkish leadership. 3vcek blunders and indecision and Washington's refusal to risk another Vietnam combined to write the latest chapter in the Cyprus story. "Everyone must know now that there is a Turkey in the vorld which means what it says and does what it says it vill," said Haluk Ulman, 42, j one of Premier Bulcnl Ecevit's chier foreign affairs advisers. · Turkey made much of its humanitarian motive -- to save the ives of Turkish Cypriots. But nore important was the threat hat Cyprus, just 40 miles from the Turkish mainland, might be united with Greece after the ovcrthroy of President Ma- Ivarios on July 15 by the Greek officers of the Greek Cypriot national guard. Earlier this year Greece, rejected Turkey's claim that it lad the right to drill for oil around the Greek islands off ;he Turkish coast. The Greek military junta refused to negotiate the matter. Ulman said that was the first Greek blunder, explaining: 'We felt we couldn't breathe, even in our own waters." The Greek generals' worst blunder was stage-managing Ma- with the notorious Nicos Sampson, a leader of the EOKA-B underground and rabid advocate ol Enosis, the union of Cyprus with Greece. "This was de facto Enosis, 1 Ulman said. "We decided on a solution which would finally a n d a b s o l u t e l y obstrucl Enosis." The Greeks erred in assum ing that Ecevit, like Turkish premiers in crises over Cyprus in 1964 and 1967. would not take military action. The Greeks ap parently felt that the United States would stop the Turks with a combination of threats captured more to be used in nrgaining. Turkish officials say con- dcntly that the Cyprus prob- m is now solved. Ecevit said e invasion was a "neat surgi al operation.

But, as Kis a news conference the United States singer told this week, does not accept "that it mus' stop every local war between smaller states." The Turks invaded, the Greek junta abandoned its wards on Cyprus, and the Greek military dictatorship was destroyed. After the first cease-fire, For eign Minister Turan Gunes gave the Greeks a take-it-or- leave-it opportunity to agree to a divided Cyprus, with autono mous Greek and Turkish Cypriot stales joined in a federation. The Greeks relused; Ulman says they were misled by hints from the British that they could check the Turks. Instead the Turkish troops moved again, occupied the ter ritory the Greeks and Greek Cypriots wouldn't concede, anc 8-4-05-36 :ACK TO SCHOOI ^ LittIe -things, like little rings, help you sgy, whgl you wanf TO sgy. 1 diamond love rlnft 10K $45.00 1 diamond promte ring, 14K $27.95 1 diamond promise ring, 14K $65.00 1 diamond prom to ring, 14K $49.50 1 diamond heart-shaped signet ring, 10K $49.95 Artkh ring, 10K $19.95 1 diamond promise ring, 14K $36.00 UK OOflDWM CONVENIENT CREDIT T£RM«: Burfgrt Accounts · Chw,. flm JEWELERS Gordon; IN FAYETTEVILLE SHOP AT GORDON'S!

The price hike was granted Last December by the Nixon administration, which said the boost would increase oil sup plies by providing the incentive to develop new reserves and by reducing demand. However, the GAO concluded an eight-month-long study of oil prices with the findings that major oil companies believe the price hike will have no immediate impact on production and, at the same time, "there seems to be no question tlxat industry profits have increased as a result of the increase in the price" of oil. Rep. Donald M. Fraser, D- Minn., asserted that Nixon administration officials knew when they permitted the price hike that it would fail to encourage production. Fraser said that instead the oil companies "have received a windfall of $1.6 billion as a di ministration's decision was, based In part on advice gives'; by the Stanford Research Institute. The institute told the Jost of Living Council last December that more modest price likes would discourage oil consumption without generating excess profits, the GAO said. In addition, the Stanford report cautioned that it was by no ncans certain that subslantial- ,y higher prices .would stiinu- ate more new oil production, according to the GAO. rinburg Prep in North Carolina rect result of -that decision and this year after attending high still no action has been taken to school at Bell and McKinley tax that windfall."
