IOWA, OCTOBER 25, CITY FINAL 15 CENTS ASSOC1ATKD PKKSS. IM'I, NEW YORK TIMES CHICAGO (AP) President Ford has finally come right out and said it: Big spenders arc responsible for the country's in- flation woes and (he chief "vil- lains" are the Democrats congress. In a string of campaign ap- pearances Thursday on behalf of struggling Republican can- didates, Ford accused Demo- crats of ruining the economy with four decades of reckless spending and of now threatening foreign policy. "There are many lie told a fund-rais- ing dinner in Chicago. ''But, the biggest burden of guilt lies on the shoulders of the biggest spenders. "And the fact is that one polit- ical party has run the congress and held open the nation's purse strings for 38 of the last '12 years, and for the past straight 20 years. "Can't Allow It" "That parly is the Democratic party, and we cannot allow it to drive the budget deeper into the red and the rate of inflation higher into the blue." Then Ford repeated his now familiar campaign slogan that the country needs an inflation- proof Republican congress and not a velo-proof Democratic one. It was perhaps his most direct assault on his former congres- sional colleagues but even then he tempered it, ad Jibbing into his prepared speech to a G.O.P. luncheon in Des Moines that the Democratic leadership was act- ing responsibly, although "their troops run wild." Ford also renewed the foreign policy theme which stirred a furor Tuesday in Oklahoma City and Cleveland when he said election of the "wrong kind of congress" could endanger world peace. The W h i t e House said Wednesday that Ford only meant to stress the importance of a bipartisan foreign policy. But he took another shot at the Democrats Thursday, accusing them of "undermining our foreign relations with handcuff- like restrictions on the policies of the President and the secre- tary of slate." Common Theme The common theme of the day's speeches, however, was that congress, not the President, spends llie money and is respon- sible for inflation.
