(AP Laserphoto) LEA A Reform to Be Announced WASHINGTON (AP) President Carter is about to announce his plan to reorganize the problem- riddled Law Enforcement Assistance Administration, an agency established during Ihe Nixon administration to help local communities combat crime. But some congressional critics who have seen drafts of the plan are calling Carter's proposal "more of a rehash than a reform." In his 1976campaign, Carter accused LEAA of wasting millions of taxpayers' dollars "while making almost no contribution to reducing crime." Now wilh Ihe help of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D- Mass., who will be chairman of Ihe Senale Judiciary Committee nexl year, replacing the retiring Sen. James 0. Eastland, D-Miss., the president has put together a proposed reorganization of LEAA that will stress ear- marking of funds for big cities with high crime rales. The four-year aulhorizalion bill would call for a spending ceiling of million annually for LEAA and ils programs. The agency's currenl aulhorization is about the same, but its actual ap- propriation is only S641 million annually. Details of Carter's reor- ganization plan are to be made public on Monday at a While House ceremony to which key congressional backers of the plan have been invited. Among them are Kennedy and Rep. Peter W. Rodino, D-N.J., chairman of the House Judiciary Commitlee. The LEAA's war on crime was conceived during Ihe Johnson adminislration but actually came into existence under President Richard M. Nixon in 1969. Since then the LEAA, an agency of the Justice Department, has spent more lhan billion. The LEAA has been sharply criticized for providing federal money for localities and states to buy such police hardware as souped-up squad cars, bulletproof vests, helicopters and guns. Carter's plan would try to reduce questionable uses of LEAA funds by banning, in most cases, grants for police conslruclion projects or salary increases. It would try to cut LEAA paperwork by 75 percent, primarily by reducing the number of planning documents and grant ap- plications required of fund recipients. And there would be added encouragement for community participation in LEAA programs. The bill would provide larger grants for certain stales, based on a formula lhal would include population, crime rates, local spending on criminal justice and local tax contribulions. Most of the states eligible for more money under Carter's plan would be in the eastern half of the nation. "The problem with the bill is thai it is very said one congressional aide who asked not to be identified. "For instance, the bill calls for 'improvements' in LEAA but doesn't define an im- he said. The aide also complained thai proposed restrictions against funds being used for police hardware or salaries are so cloudy that Ihey could easily be circumvenled. Nazis to Rally In Park Sunday CHICAGO (AP) Its legal bailies won, a group of American Nazis shifts 'its at- tention to a Sunday rally in Marquette Park, in the midst of a white, working-class neighborhood that has been the scene of racial clashes. A UX.S. Supreme Court justice refused an appeal Friday by the Chicago Park District to keep the Nazis from demonstrating in the park. The action upheld earlier rulings by a U.S. District Court judge and federal ap- pellate panel. Both refused to delay a Nazi rally while the park district appealed its overturned requirement for a insurance bond. After Justice William J. Brennan Jr.'s ruling Friday, the park districl issued a permit allowing Collin and his followers to rally in the park between l p.m. and 4 p.m. Sunday. Nearly all opposition to the rally has come from outside Marquelte Park, as the neighborhood also is known. Feelings .against blacks run high in the area, which oflen has been Ihe scene of con- frontations between whites and blacks from the neigh-- boring ghetto trying to use the park. One resident called Marquette Park "the last decent place on the South Side for whites to go." Another, Anthony Matic, a retired athletic director who plays chess daily in the half- square-mile- park where the Nazis will rally said, "I'll be glad if they can block the blacks from here.'' Matic said he "got chased out" of his South Side home by blacks. "But I don't like the Nazis. They picked a lousy name. Many people around here fought against Nazis in the war." The conflict has swept up the younger residents, too. "I know about Hitler and I know about said Wally. a 12-year-old recruit of Frank Collin, leader of the National Socialist Party of America.

Emery Air Freight used Carter's picture in ads in three magazines, topped by a, headline and text publicizing' the White House's use of the Wilton, Conn., firm to ship packages. The White House says the use of Carter's pic- ture was unauthorized. in Ad Unauthorized Claudia Townsend, an assistant While House press secretary, said Emery's advertising agency had asked permission to use the picture and the request was turned down. Richard W. Wiebe, Emery's advertising manager, and Jerry Delia Femina, board chairman of Delia Femina, Travisano Co., the New York firm responsible for Emery's advertising, both said they were unaware that such permission had been sought and denied. "If the White House had told us 'no' ahead of time, that would have been Wiebe said in a telephone interview. "It seemed like a perfectly harmless said Delia Femina.

Jobless Rate Beats Goal WASHINGTON (AP) The surprising drop in the nation's unemployment rale to 5.7 percent in June, Ihe lowest in nearly four years, could give President Carter the breathing space he needs to combat inflation. The drop from a G.I percent jobless rate in May brought the jobless rate below Carter's goal for this year, and almost down to the 5.6 percent target he had previously set for 1979. This should allow Carter to turn more of his attention to fighting inflation which has been steadily worsening wilhoul a lol of criticism aboul nol paying enough allenlion to the unemployment rate. The administration's satisfaction over unexpected gains in reducing unem- ployment, which was 8 per- cent of the labor force when Carter took office last year, has been partially offset by dismay over an equally unexpected worsening of price increases. The Labor Department reported on Friday that wholesale prices rose in June by 0.7 percent, with food continuing ils alarming up- ward Irend by climbing 1.1 percent The increases at the -wholesale level probably foreshadow another big jump in consumer which have risen at an annual rate of 10.2 percent during the first five months of this year. The administration already has issued a gloomy revision of its inflation forecast for this year and next. It says consumer prices will increase 7.2 percent Ihis year and 6.5 percenl in 1979. Both are higher lhan previously eslimaled. One well-placed govern- ment economisl was skeptical lhal inflation could be kepi even to 7.2 percenl, because he said il would mean culling Ihe five-monlh inflation rale of more than 10 percent to just aboul 5 percenl during Ihe resl of Ihe year. The adminislration acknowledged in its mid-year economic report on Thursday that il already has Iried to slow Ihe economy lo help ease inflationary pressures, and that if inflation continues to worsen, it may brake the economy even more. Delia Femina said they were official While .House parcels and not personal effects of the presidential family.

U.S.: Soviets' Trials Could pact on R Reds Place Leading Dissidents on Trial MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet Union, by placing two leading Jewish dissidents on trial next week, is making a "ham-handed" move that could hurl delenle with the United States on the eve of renewed SALT talks, Western diplomatic sources here said. The Kremlin announced Friday that programmer Anatoly Shcharansky, accused of spying for the CIA, is to be tried for high treason Monday in Moscow. On the same day, Alexander Ginzburg stands trial al Kaluga, 100 miles away, on charges of "anli- Soviet -agitalion and propaganda." In Washington, the Slate -Department issued a stale'rrient cleared 'by President Carter warning thai the fate of the two men will have an impact on the "constructive development" of Sovict-U.S. relations, chilled in recent weeks by issues ranging from Russian involvement in Africa to alleged Soviet spying in the United Slates. Secretary of Stale Cyrus Vance meets Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko in Geneva, Switzerland, for new strategic arms limitalion talks on Wednesday, and the Western sources here deplored the liming of the trials at what they called a critical stage of negotialions. The sources also predicled the postponemenl of a proposed U.S.-Soviet scienlific cooperation agreemenl, due lo have been signed when Carlers scienlific adviser Frank Press visils Moscow nexl week. The 30-year-old Shcha- ransky can be sentenced to death if convicted of treason by espionage. A leader of the Soviet Jewish emigration movement, he repeatedly has been denied permission lo emigrate to Israel himself. Ginzburg, a central activist in the human rights Helsinki Group, has been held incommunicado for 15 months and faces up to 10 years in a labor camp if convicted. Shcharansky also has been held incommunicado since his arrest in April 1977 after Ihe government newspaper Izveslia accused him of in- volvement in a spy ring of American diplomals and journalisls controlled by Ihe Central Intelligence Agency. The U.S. Embassy laler denounced the article as "a classic piece of disin- formation.'' The American government urged Moscow to call off the trial while Carler declared he was "completely convinced" Shcharansky had never been linked lo Ihe CIA. In Tel Aviv, Israeli- Prime Minisler Menachem Begin, expressing "greal shock" al Ihe upcoming Irial, said Friday that Shcharansky's one crime "was Ihe desire lo_ emigrale lo Israel." He ap- pealed lo "all free nations" to press for Ihe dissidenl's release. Many international human righls and Jewish or- ganizalions have laken up Shcharansky's case, claiming he is being persecuted for campaigning to allow Jews to leave the Soviet Union. His trial, whose dale was disclosed in a Tass news agency advisory to foreign correspondents, was slated for the Peoples' Courl of Moscow's Prolelarsky Dis- Iricl. Three judges decide People's Courl trials. Defend- ants usually are forbidden lo call defense witnesses. _.

Perlini's election was practically assured Friday night when an array of parties from the ruling Christian Democrats to the Communists asked their electors lo back Pertini as a unity candidate.

An News Analysis ByKOIJEHTB.'cULLEN Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON The Carter administration's quick and firm admonition to the Soviet Union about the treason trial of dissident Anatoly Shcharansky raises anew the question of a linkage between human rights and detente. A year ago, it was Moscow which warned that detente would be damaged by the human rights offensive launched by the new ad- ministration in Washington. And it was the ad- ministration which said its human rights offensive should have no bearing on other aspects of .detente, such as the strategic arms "limitation talks. Now it is the Kremlin which roils the human rights waters again, announcing on Friday thill the trials of Shcharansky and Alexander Ginzburg will begin next week. And it is Washington which responds with stern statements. "In our view, the fate of Mr. Shcharansky and Mr. Ginz- burg will" be an important indicator of the attitude of the Soviet government, both with regard to observing its commitments under the Helsinki Final Act and to promoting a healthy atmosphere for the con- structive development of Soviet-U.S. Slate Department spokesman Hodding Carter said in a statement that he said was personally approved by President Carter. Hodding Carter refused to speculate on the ways in which U.S. displeasure might be expressed if, as expected, the Soviet courts find Shcharansky and Ginzburg guilty. Other officials, speaking privately, indicated that the administration was still trying to determine what its response will be. Late Friday, an of- ficial of the Environmental Protection Barbara Blum, announced that she was canceling a planned visit to consult with Soviet en- vironmental officials. Beyond such symbolic cancellations lie other options. One Soviet expert on the White House National Security Council staff. Samuel Hun- linglon, has suggested that economic sanctions might be applied. Under such a plan, the administration would withhold approval for export of advanced U.S. technology, grain and other items sought by Moscow. Thus fnr, the president has indicated no interest in such a plan. Al the Slate Depart- ment, officials who tend to favor pursuing detente despite Soviet provocations said they did not expect to make such a recommendation lo Carter.
