Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 20, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa IQA Morley: Nixon Pardoned To Avoid Precedent By Bill Lavclcttc President Ford pardoned Richard Nixon because a bad precedent might result if the former President stood trial and won, John Morley, jour- nalist, lecturer and world traveler, said Tuesday. Speaking to about 350 per- sons at a dinner of the Cedar Rapids Executive's club at the Roosevelt hold, Morley scattered information and opinion on various subjects in the news. Implications Morley, a resident of La- guna Hills, Calif., who is a non-affiliated news analyst, said "no deal was made when Nixon was pardoned, nor was the decision made for humani- tarian reasons." The legal implications of a President winning his trial because some of UK- tapes might not be admissible as evidence were responsible for the pardon, Morley said. Just because Nixon ap- peared to be guilty did not mean lie could be convicted in "Any attorney here will tell you that the news media sometimes evaluates informa- tion on another basis than legal agencies." The question of Nixon's indictment was very likely, Morley said, because any prosecutor can get an indict- ment. Blames Soviets On the oil embargo and the resulting high prices for oil, Morley blamed the Soviet Un- ion. "Hussia swims In oil, liter- he said. Russia is the fourth largest producer of oil and a large exporter of oil. When the Arabs withheld oil from the industrial nations and drove the price of oil higher, the Russians made billions of dollars, he said. Russia was behind the Arabs' embargo. Morley moved from Russian influence in oil to the econo- mic problems of inflation. He blamed the news media for staling only one side of the economic situation. "When we think of inflation in our country, we only think of it on one side prices." Inflation has increased Give Them Names Gazette Photo bv Ducine Crock You can't tell these puppies apart without their numbers. The two fe- males are four-month-old Elkhound-mix puppies.

Later, lie said the increas- ing cost of labor was causing American businessmen to invest their dollars in foretell countries. The rale of foreign invest- ment in America is not as great as American investment lias been in the past in other nations. Morley said he is not worried about foreign invest- ment In America because the rate is small nt the present lime. Appreciate Farmers The American farmer de- serves appreciation for keep- ing America ahead in the bal- ance of payments in (lie world economy. Criticizing the news media, and especially the national news media, Morley snid: "It just so happens the hold- up, the ir'irder, the accident and the fire is unusual." Morley said he is respectful, as a member of the press, of the need lo publicize and broadcast unpleasantness, but feels it is necessary also to tell the other side of the news. The news media reports the unemployment rate is six percent, he said. They don't tell you that ,'i percent of them are "loafers" and won't work. On Vietnam, Morley said: "Our mistake was in not going in and winning and get- ting out." Predicts Violence Morley predicted more vio- lence in the Middle East. To understand the present situa- tion there, one must look back lo the barbarism of Hitler. The people of Israel are regaining their dignity and arc surrounded by "belliger- ent Arabs and Moslems." Secretary of State Henry Kissinger gave up one third of the six billion dollar cost of cleaning up the Suez Canal when he visited Egypt. Kis- singer, a Jew, is a real sales- man when he can hug Egyp- tian President Anwar Sadat, Morley said. "When the Arabs scream at Sadat for hugging Kissinger, Sadat says, 'I got two billion dollars for the hug.' "This is not publicized in this country, but it is over there." Volunteer Alert Twenty-two groups, includ- ing nine schools, have sched- uled educational outings, retreats and other events for Camp Wapsie-Y next year, Camp Director Dwight Belknap reported Tuesday to the board of directors of the Cedar Rapids Metropolitan YMCA. Use of Camp Wapsie by school groups for ecology studies and other educational projects is on the increase, Belknap told the board. In addition to the 22 groups which have selected dates, 10 others, including four schools, are planning one-ami two-day outings. The 66 days of special group activities, which are in addi- tion to the regular nine weeks of summer camp for boys, are within 15 percent of the total outside use of the camp all last year, Belknap told the' board. The camp committee, head- ed by Robert Ettinger, met Wednesday with llarley Van Akkeren of Minneapolis, re- gional camping consultant for the YMCA, lo discuss further expansion of the camping program. Van Akkeren is a former Cedar Rapids resident and was the first director of the present Camp Wapsie-Y, which was opened in Bill Ching, executive of the Marion branch, said a storage area being added to the Mar- ion gym is expected to be ready in two weeks.
