Bethlehem Cuts Steel Price Hike PITTSBURGH (AP) Bethlehem Steel Corp., follow- ing Ihe lead set by U.S. Steel last week, announced Satur- day a partial rollback of price increases scheduled to lake ef- fect Monday. Belhlehem, the nation's No. 2 steel producer, said it would drop increases for tin plate and steel rail, which togclher accounlcd for about 20 percent of thc hikes posted last Mon- day.

This was 80 percent of parity last March 1 but due to inflation is only worth about 71 to 73 percent of current parity. The Humphrey bill would require that the government increase its support level to 85 percent of parity immediately and require thai the support level be recomputed every three months, beginning next March 1, to keep the dollar level al 85 percent of parity. Since milk is selling for near the support price now, an increase in the support level would raise Ihe price lo pro- cessors and eventually to con- sumers.

He said the President had cautioned his advisers again "not to dis- cuss publicly ideas and pro-- posals under discussion. '75 '78 Budgets Nessen said that the meet- ing dealt with the 1975 and 1976 federal budgets. It ap-1 parently covered the antlcipat- ed size of the budgets, their effects on the President's eco- nomic program and thc effect of Ford's future economic pro- posals on the budgets. Ford's new economic pro- gram and his anticipated en- ergy proposals are closely linked, Nessen said. He said the advisers also studied "forecasts of future factors af- feeling the economy." The press secretary said part of the meeting was "free- involving a philos- ophical discussion of Ihe basic causes behind the current ill- ness in Ihe American ecoiin- my. Nessen stressed that no fi- nal decisions had been made by Ford, but he said thc PITS- iilent had indicated Ihe goner- al direction lie wants his new economic program to take. Winter Romp Gazette Photo hy Duane Crock Jerry Reller, 508 Sixteenth street SE, took advantage of Saturday's mild temperatures to take a high jumping German shepherd, and a Doberman pinscher, to Van Vechtan park for a romp. Kopecky CIA Began Garry Woodward and Eu- gene Kopecky remained at an impasse Saturday over which of them will lead a grand jury probe of alleged illegal activi- ties by Cedar Rapids police of- ficers. Woodward. Ihe assislanl slate attorney general who led a similar probe last spring, said he intends to use the grand jury that will be called Jan. 0. Kopecky, who will be Linn county allorney by then, said Woodward won't receive his permission lo work with the jury and will have lo gel his authorization from a court Six present or former police officers were indicted by the previous grand jury on charges of perjury, obstruc- tion of justice and conspiracy, but the indictments were re- cently overturned by the stale supreme court, which said the grand jury was legally consti- tuted only in the first quarter of the year. The jury did nol complete its work until the third quarter. Rehearing Woodward said he plans to petitifin the supreme court for a rehearing of the case. In ad- dition, though, he plans to work with a new grand jury, using the evidence assembled by Ihe olher grand jury during its firsl quarter, to draw new indictments against the six men. That decision came afler Woodward met with Attorney General Richard Turner, and it was a decision that pleased both men. Woodward said. "It was his decision, of course, but I had the same he said. "He said thc cases were the attorney gener- al's. He thought there was a substantial slate interest in this mailer. (and) 1 don't like to leave any job that I've worked on half-finished." Not Welcome But Kopecky, in a later meeting with Woodward, made it clear hc would nol welcome his participation in the new Investigation. Ko- pecky said Woodward came into thc first grand jury inves- tigation at the request of the court and grand jury and with the approval of County Attor- on Probe ney William Fachcs. That's not the case tins time. Ko- we re just going lo gu ahead and proceed, and if lie trios to inlerfcre we'll have to see what lhc court Ko- pecky said Saturday. "I think it's his step first" Woodward said lie is still willing lo share the grand jury with Kopecky "Whal I Iried lo sav in lalk- ing with the county attorney was, 'why don't we both run one grand bul he wanls to run a grand jury indcpend- Woodward said. "If he intends some kind of complete police probe, he would lake lhc grand jury for the whole quarter, or most of it." _ Later Devel.pmenls He added thai later develop- such as an audit of the police department was completed after the grand jury's work last spring, would have no ef- fect on thc indictments of the six men. Neither, hc said, would new testimony have an effect on the perjury counts, and he indicated Ihe officers might not even be called lo testify again. The perjury counts general- ly stemmed from contradic- lions belwcen testimony given the grand jury and testimony given Faches in an earlier in- vestigation, he said, adding, "they couldn't very well re- pair the situation by testifying a third time, if there was a conflict." Kopecky said he wanls lo handle the new investigation himself because he believes it is his obligation and because he ,is unbiased, while both Faches and Woodward have aready come lo a decision about the guilt or innocence of the police officers.
