Cpiutiilly was indicted on a charge of accepting from the Associated Jlilk Producers Inc. a cooperative for which Jacobsen lobbied. In relimi for Jacobson's cooperation, the federal prosecutors agreed to seek dismissal of federal charges against him in Texas for the misapplication of funds of a San Angelo savings and loan associa- tion.. In bis decision, Judge Robert Hill said'. "The government in its bargain with Ja- cobsen made a promise to Jacobsen I bat it' could not guarantee. It could have promised to move 'for a dismissal of this case but it could not guarantee a dis- missal. This court was not a party to the bargain and is not bound by it." Judge Hill said also that he was reaf- firming Sept. 23 as the date for Jacobsen's (rial in San Angelo in the misapplication charges. The Slate of Texas had filed a brief with Judge Ifill earlier this week opposing the motion far dismissal submitted by federal attorneys last week. Judge Hill noted that the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedures provide that the Attorney General or the U.S. attorney may file for dismissal of an indictment. But Hill said: "The court has fully considered the mo- tion and the government's support memo- randum and is of the opinion that the motion should be denied. 'The bare assertion in the government's motion that 'the best interests o't justice' should be served is not sufficient to justify dismissal." Hill said he couldn't perceive "how the best interests of justice could be served by dismissing serious charges with the poten- tial penalty of 35 years imprisonment and a fine in exchange for a guilty plea in an unrelated case carrying a maximum penally of two years and a fine. Jacobsen had' pleaded guilty to the Washington bribery charges involving See JUDGE, 12A, Col. 5- Ford Promises To Lick I nflotion PHILADELPHIA (AP) President Ford pledged Fri- day night thai before America celebrates ils 200th birthday on July his administra- tion will have halted "the tyr- anny of double-digit inflation the crudest kind o! taxation without representation." Precisely four weeks to the day alter he ascended to the presidency, Ford came to Independence Mall to .address a dinner commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Firsl Continental Congress. He used the occasion to set for the first lime a timetable (or his administration's anti- inflation battle, although .he offered no specifics on his bat- lle plan. "We arc going after the pub- lic enemy of inflation in 1974 and we will lick him before July Ford said. Puffing on his pipe after a dinner of snapper so-jp and capon, Ford was introduced by Pennsylvania Gov. Milton Shapp as "a man of the peo- ple" who is working "to res- lore openness and integrity in government." The President joined the dinner guests in applaud- ing a song written by Shapp, "I'm Proud to be an Ameri- can" when entertainer Mike Douglas joined the Marine band in it. While House Press Secre- tary Jerald lerllorst, respond- ing to newsmen's questions, afler the dinner that Ford had decided lo establish a "clemency review board" similar to thai set up by Pres- ident Truman afler World War II to handle amnesty cases for deserters and draft dodgers. Ford defended his approach to I he problem of inflation, an approach thai has drawn criti- cism from some in Congress. "Like the patriots who met here 200 years ago, we may seem to move cautiously and too Ford said. "But I hope no one will under- estimate the fighting ability of Americans today the way some did in 1774. "f warn you, as wise old Ben Franklin did, that if we do not all hang together we will certainly hang separately. But we will not hang separate- ly nor will we fall divided. We are going after the public ene- my of inflation in 1974 and we will lick him before July 4, 1976." The Presidcnl cautioned that hard times still lie ahead. "We will have our Valley Forges, our summer soldiers and our sunshine he said. "But we are the descen- dants and heirs of the pa- lriots who assembled here 200 years ago tonight we must not let them down." "With your help, we will win the fight against Ford said. "What belter way can we begin our third centu- ry of independence as a nation of liberty under God and brotherly love for He spoke lo guests gathered on a rainy night be- neath a yellow and white striped tent across the slreol from Independence Hall.

IStaff Photo by Jonny Cales) Is v The Associated Press The leaders of Greek and Turkish C y p r i o I s resumed Iheir suspended peace talks Friday and agreed to start ex- changing almost 4.500 prison- ers of war and civilian detai- nees. "President Glafcos derides, a Greek Cypriol, and his Turk- ish- Cypriot vice-president, 'Rauf Denktash, also agreed to exchange lists of thousands of. persons missing behind the battle lines. The Inlernalional Commit- tee of the Red Cross said nei- ther prisoner lisls nor rosteiu of the missing have been com- pleted from the Cyprus' war, which began when Turkish forces invaded the eastern Mediterranean island five days after the ouster of Presi- dent Makarios in a military coup July 15. Cuirent lists show that Turkish Cypriots are held in Nicosia by the Greeks, and Greek Cypriots are in Turkish camps there. Another known POWs have been shipped to Turkey. The der- ides says Greek Cypriots are known to be missing, and Ihe Turkish side has given no figure. The talks between Clcrides and Denktash broke off Mon- day when Turkish soldiers be- gan unearthing bodies in a garbage dump at a Turkish village. Denktash claimed the 84 Turkish Cyprfots whose bodies were found were vic- tims of a massacre by Treek Cypriot troops. Tbc resumption, arranged by Ihe United Natiors, was to have centered on refu- gees on the island, but the five points on which agreement was announced made little mention of Ihem. fly Top U.S. Economic Officials 'Easy Money' Idea Opposed WASHINGTON The administration's two top eco- nomic officials expressed opposition Friday to some -economists' siifgestions that the nation's money supply- should be expanded. At a Thursday preliminary lo the While House economic summit meeting, a majority of the economics attending had urged the government to let more money flow into the economy. That would be in- tended to lower interest rales and help Iwosl production. Alan Greenspan, chairman of the President's Council of Economic AMsev.i told news- money policy would not help in fighting inflation. Treasury Secretary William E. Simon said he supports continued restraints on the money supply. A significant casing, Green- span said, would produce "a short-term sense of well- being" that niisht persist for lliree lo 12 months and con- vince people the nation's eco- nomic difficulties had been solved. Afterward, however, "al- most certainly the increased money supply would put us back in the current situalion if not worse." he said. At his first news conference iv h's new post, Greenspan was asked how he would feel about a more moderate change in monetary policy. Greenspan said 'be felt it would be inappropriate to get involved in policy questions thai are the sole responsibility of the Federal Reserve Board. In Dallas, Tex., Simon said: "We must recognize that there have been years of fiscal and monetary abuse which cannot he undone "overnight. Thus, fiscal and monetary restraint must 'be exercised patiently and consistently for a sus- tained period of lime." Simon, in a speech at Soulh- cm Methodist University, said fiscal and monetary restraint is the only' alternative 10 con- trols in coping with inflation. But controls, he said, "are the enemy of the market and could kill Ihe economic system as we know it." He stressed that some diffi- cult government decisions will be needed on budget cutting as a vital response to infla- tion. "High and rising federal ex- penditures inevitably mean high and he said. "Either we gel higher taxes directly, or the resulting budget deficits produce inlls- lion which is lite most insidi- ous and indiscriminate tax o! all."
