Economic Policy Must Come From Contradictory Material Northwest Arkansas TIMES, TUBS., Sept 24, 1974' · FAYETTEVU.L.E, ARKANSAS Nature's Jewelry Pearl-like drops of morning dew spiirklc in the September sun, strung on the won of a spider which surely w a s more interested in food. This pholu was taken by Narline Frisby of the Poiica Cily, Okla., News. (AP Wirephoto) By JOHN CUNNIFF NEW Y O R K (AP) - There is no dearlh of material from which President Gerald Ford can pick and choose in formulating an anti-inflation policy. There never was. and that is precisely his problem. He must exercise the wisdom of Solomon. On the matter of taxing, for example, Richard Cooper of Yale University claims a lax reduction of $10 billion to $15 billion for low-moderate incomes would be anti-inflationary. But J. Kenneth Galbraith of Harvard urges a tax increase. The proposals advocated over the past three weeks of pre- summiti-y arc replete with contradictious and special pleading of business, finance, labor, government, housing, the poor, investors, borrowers, lenders .... But there are areas of agree' mcnt as well, especially in re gard to lowering interest rates keeping a cheek on governmen' spending, and attempting lo keep joblessness from rising swiftly during the adjustmen lo more stability. Among the suggestions lha must be considered by Pan McCracken, who has the unen viable job of formulating an economic program, are these -separated into monetary (mon cy supply, cost) and fisca (government spending, taxing categories: CATEGORIES LISTED Monetary: --Ease Federal Reserve po! icy on money supply.

Whil administration spokesmen 0] posed mildly, Arthur Burn Fed chairman, indicates Ih easing already may have bi gun. --Allocate credit lo most pr uctive uses. Money now is al- calcd by price alone.

"There is only one cure anr vc all know it," said Milton 'riedman of the University o Chicago, generally regarded as conservative. "We have to low down total spending.

Some economists sugges signer taxes on income to cui tail demand. But others sugges a -tax cut for lower i n c o in workers to make them mor satisfied with smaller wage in creases. Many of the suggestions frorr economists and others go be yond the usual fiscal-monetar measures. Among t h e sugge lions for a multi-dimensional a tack on inflation are these: --Controls or restraints.

Square WASHINGTON (AP) -- Il| might be a gond idea to have a trial court resolve qtieslions arising from Ihe pardon of former President Richard M. Nixon, a federal judge suggesled Monday. U.S. Dislrict Judge Charles R. Richey said "it might be desirable to h a v e at least one trial court resolve whatever questions are extant with respect to the validity of the agreement and with respect to the validity of the pardon." The comment came as Richey postponed action on attempts to retain some of Nixon's Watergale tapes for use relaled civil suits. En another Watergate-related court action Monday, Supreme Court Justice William J. Bren- nau Jr. rejected requests from former White House aides H. R. Haldeman and Gordon C. Strachan for a delay in the cover-up trial set for Oct. 1. A similar postponement re quest from former While House John D. Ehrlichman was rejected last, month by Chief Justice Warren E. B u r g e r a n d Justice William O. Douglas. And Monday night CBS reported that Nixon says on an unrelcased tape that Jeb S. Magruder was supposed to "lie like hell" before a Watergate grand jury. The network said unreEeased tapes of meetings April 25 and 26, H173, between Nixon and Haldeman also show Nixon telling Haldeman to make sure no one, including then domestic affairs adviser Ehrlichman, knows that the conversations are being taped. N I X O N SAID AFRAID CDS added that on the April 2fi tape Nixon said he was afraid of becoming involved in Watergate and Haldeman noted t h a t he would have to be impeached first and said that wouldn't happen. The network then quotes Nix- on as saying "No, I've slept on that a little. Oh, my God, what iiave we done lo be impeached." A spokesman for Watergate special prosecutor Leon ,Ta- worski had no comment on the CBS report. Prosecution lawyers plan to use 33 lapcs in Ihe cover-up trial including the April 25 and 26 conversations. Defense lawyers have been supplied with the transcripts of nearly all Watergate-related tape conversations. ' Last week one of the convicted Watergate burglars, James W. McCord Jr., asked Richey to declare Ford's pardon of Nixon illegal and to de clare that the government had no power to give the former president control over his White House tapes.
