With trial scheduled for today in Washington Circuit Court, Derrick changed his plea to one of guilty. He could face a sen- .ence of from 5 to 30 years in prison. Sentence on Derrick w i l l he passed on completion of the trial of the remaining suspects. Trial for the other men, Frank J. Freeman, 31, of Tulsa; Herod Louis Boyd, 26. also of Tulsa, and Clarence J. Roland- oE Okmulgee, opened in Circuit Court today with jury selection. The four men were arrested by federal, state and city law enforcement officers Jujy 10 after a federal agent had set up a purchase of the drugs with the four men at a motel. Police said that two previous purchaser, of drugs had been made by the agent from Derrick so that the final major buy could be made. Nine officers staked out the motel in preparation for the arrest that would establish a record for the largest drug "bust" in Arkansas history. The suspects arrived at a ser- vice station near the motel at about 2 p.m. and a man, identi- ied later as Derrick, used the jhone at the station to call the- federal agent at the motel. The four men then rented a room at the motel and in about ail hour Derrick made contact with the agent in his room. Police said that Derrick wanted to count the money, and after doing so, the two men dickered over the price. The original price for the full pound of heroin had been set at $20,000, out was later changed to $16,000. After agreeing on the price, Derrick left the room to get the leroin but returned empty iianded a short time later. He told the agent that one of the oher men wanted to count the money, but the agent refused to let another person enter the room. Derrick then recounted t h e money, police said, and left the room again. He returned with CONTINUED ON P/tGE TWO) Democrat Leaders Criticize Ford's Anti-Inflation Goals Research On Solar Energy Considered " DETROIT (AP) -- Federal Energy Administrator John C. ·Sawhill said today that "the United Slates is considering a $1 billion research program on solar energy over the next five years. Sawhill told delegates to the .World Energy Conference the United States hopes "to have several solar technologies with wide commercial application by 1985." "It appears possible that by the year 2000, solar energy sys terns might be capable of sup plying 5 to 10 per cent of tota U.S. electricity requirements,' ho said. . Addressing a round table on the final day of the conference Sawhill said solar energy ha: captured mankind's imagina tion "from the time Archi medes set a Roman fleet afir using the sun's reflected pow er." He noted the Senate las week passed a $10.0 millio budget for solar research thi year, authorizing "a major drive for practical solar technologies--primarily to generate electricity." LIMITED POTENTIAL But he also warned there Is only a limited potential for major energy impacts from alternate energy sources, such as solar and geothermal, between .now and 1985. For the short term, he said, much of the research and development will continue to be concerned with, safer and more efficient coal' mining tech --TTMESPhoto by Ken Good SUSPECTS END THEIR JOURNEY HOME ...

"Credit curbs alone are not enough. Budget cuts alone are not enough." said Senate Democratic leader Mike Mansfield after Ford predicted in his opening remarks, that "we as Americans can and will win" the battle against inflation. Ford hinted at tax cuts for the poor so no group is "called upon to carry an unfair share of the load." Both Mansfield and House Speaker Carl Albert agreed on this point, but they questioned other Ford administration economic policies. "The administration in effect has spoken of the old-time reli- tgion" in coping with economic problems, Albert said, 'declaring that this falls "short o.f what the nation needs." Mansfield said "in all candor I am not too optimistic about the result" of the' summit conference, called by Ford in response to legislation sponsored by the Montana Democrat. Sitting at Ford's side, Mansfield outlined a nine-point program, that would include mandatory wage, price, rent and profit controls, a public works job program, and rationing of energy and other scarce materials. MILD REBUKE The Democrats' criticism of Republican policies brought a mild rebuke from Senate GOP leader Hugh Scott.

President Ford urged congressional leaders of both par ties at the White House on Thursday to allow administrative flexibility in the foreign aid program. In regard to Cyprus, White House press secretary Ron Nes Fen said it was the adminls tration view, as outlined by the President and Secretary o State Henry A. Kissinger, tha "restrictive provisions work against tha Interests of all par lies, especially Greece, since they will inhibit efforts to reach a settement." Senate Republican Leader Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania said the President was willing to accept a money bill amendment that would require suspension of military aid to Turkey unless that nation demonstrates good faith in reaching a negotiated settlement with Greece and Cyprus. The amendment was approved by the Senate Appropriations Committee as a modification of a House-passed rider that would cut off aid to Turkey until the President could certify that substantial progress had been made in Cyprus negotiations. The modified amendment comes before the Senate on Monday as part of a normally routine resolution permitting spending until the final ad iournment of Congress this year for foreign aid and other irograms for which regular an- lual appropriation bills' have not been passed. Present au- .hority for continued spending expires at midnight on Monday. Sen. Thomas F. Eagleton, E Mo., served notice that he wi offer a proposal to deny fund for any further aid to Turkey, or for transportation of military items already purchased, under sections of the foreign assis ance and military sales acts requiring such. a cut-off for use of U.S. military aid equipment for unauthorized aggressive purposes.
