Bethlehem Cuts Steel Price Hike
PITTSBURGH (AP) -Bethlehem Steel Corp., following the lead set by U.S. Steel last week, announced Saturday a partial rollback of price increases scheduled to take effect Monday.
Bethlehem, the nation’s No. 2 steel producer, said it would drop increases for tin plate and steel rail, which together accounted for about 20 percent of the hikes posted last Monday
Tin plate is used almost exclusively in the tin can industry, while steel rail is used for railroad tracks.

hundred pounds. This was 80 percent of parity last March I 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 that the support level Ik* recomputed every three* months, beginning next March I. to keep the dollar level at 85 percent of parity.
Since milk is selling for near the support price now. un increase in the support level would raise the* price to processors and eventually to consumers
Pigs, Hay Lost In Barn Blaze
SPRINGVILLE - About 750 bales of hay and a dozen small pigs were lost Saturday after-noon as fire destroyed a barn on the Fred Gordon farm, about a mile southwest of here.
Springville firemen were able to protect an adjacent building and nearby farm equipment, however, as well as save several sows and about 50 small pigs from the blaze
Chuck Barnes, assistant fire chief, said faulty wiring was probably responsible for the fire, which broke out at about 1:15 pm

Nessen declined to discuss specifics on the direction of Ford s new program. He said the President had cautioned his advisers again “not to discuss publicly ideas and pro--posals under discussion “
’75, ’71 Budgets
Nessen said that the meeting dealt with the 1975 and 1976 federal budgets. It apparently covered the anticipated size of the budgets, their effects on the ITesident’s economic program and the* effect of Ford's future economic proposals on the budgets.
Ford's new economic program and his anticipated energy proposals are closely linked, Nessen said. He said the advisers also studied “forecasts of future factors affecting the economy.”
The press secretary said part of the meeting was “freewheeling,” involving a philosophical discussion of the basic causes behind the current ill-n<*ss in the American economy.
Nessen stressed that no final divisions had been made by Ford, hut he said the President had indicated the general direction he wants his new economic program to take

Woodward, Kopecky CIA Began ‘Noticing Kids’
Deadlocked on Probe
Garry Woodward and Eu-gene Kopivky remained at an impasse Saturday over which of them will lead a grand jury probe of alleged illegal activities by Cedar Rapids police officers.
Woodward, the assistant state attorney general who led a similar probe last spring, said he intends to use the grand jury that will be called Jan. 6. Kopecky. who will be Linn county attorney by then, said Woodward won’t receive his permission to work with the jury and will have to get his authorization from a court.
Six present or former police officers were indicted by the pres ious grand jury on charges of perjury, obstruction of justice and conspiracy, but the indictments were recently overturned by the state supreme court, which said the grand jury was legally constituted only in the first quarter of the year. The jury did not complete its work until the third quarter
Woodward said he plans to petition the supreme court for a rehearing of the case. In addition, though, he plans to work with a new grand jury, using the evidence assembled by the other grand jury during its first quarter, to draw new indictments against the six men.
That division came after 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 view,” he said. “He said the eases were the attorney general’s. He thought there was a substantial state interest in this matter. . . (and) ... I don’t like to leave any job that I’ve worked on half-finished ”
But Kopecky, in a later meeting with Woodward, made it clear he would not welcome his participation in the new investigation. Kopecky !&»d Woodward came into the first grand jury investigation at the request of the court and grand jury and with tho approval of County Attor
ney William Laches. That’s not the case this time, Kopecky said.
“We’re just going to go ahead and proceed, and if he tries to interfere we ll have to see what the court says,” Kopivky said Saturday. “I think it’s his step first.”
Woodward said he is still willing to share the grand jury with Kopecky.
“What I tried to say in talking with the county attorney was. why don’t we both run one grand jury?’ but he wants to run a grand jury independently,” Woodward said. “If he intends some kind of complete police probe, he would lake the grand jury for the whole quarter, or most of it.”
IU* added that later develop-such as un audit of the police department was completed after the grand jury’s work last spring, would have no effect on the indictments of the six men. Neither, he said, would new testimony have an effect on the perjury counts, and he indicated the officers might not even la* called to testify again.
The perjury counts generally stemmed from contradictions between testimony given the grand jury and testimony given Laches in an earlier investigation, he said, adding, “they couldn’t very well repair the situation by testifying a third time, if there was a conflict."
Kopivky said he wants to handle the new investigation himself because hi* believes it is his obligation and because he is unbiased, while both Laches and Woodward have already come to a decision about the guilt or innocence of the police officers.
“I haven't drawn any conclusions yet, at all," he said.

telligence spy, although it was impossible to check all of his information
The Times, quoting wellplaced sources, reported last Sunday that the CIA had violated its charter by conducting massive and illegal intelligence operations aimed at anti-war and other American dissidents inside the C. S. Intelligence files on at least 10.-000 American citizens also wen* compiled, the sources said.
The former intelligence agent said that he and other CIA agents had also participated in telephone wiretaps and breakins in their efforts to closely monitor the activities of radicals in New York. He addi*d that the CIA hid supplied him with "mort* than 40” psychological assessments of radical leaders during his spy career
High-ranking CIA officials, including Richard Helms, the former director of the agency and now ambassador to Iran, told congress in the wake of the Watergate ixandals that only two such assessments — done by psychiatrists working for (he agency — have ever been prepared en American citizens
The agent said he had iKvn recruited into the CIA after graduation from college in 1965. After training in counterintelligence techniques, his first assignment was with the Domestic Operations Division office in New York.
“When I first came to IM)-D,” the former agent said, “It was a low-key operation. Mostly we did liaison” with other intelligence agencies
“.And then someone startl'd
noticing those kids," the former agent said. referring to the anti-war activists. “At first they were just a pain in the neck. The local police and FBI couldn’t handle it We had the manpower and the money.”
In the beginning, he said, only files on student dissenters were kept, apparently as an addition to the already existing dossiers on the various foreign students living in the New York area.
“The first actual (physical) surveillance came when people like Mark Rudd started moving around," he said. Rudd was a leader in the student demonstrations that disrupted Columbia university for two weeks in the spring of 1968
“We’d go out, take some photographs and follow them,” he said. “We had different ID s for different jobs We’d use newspaper ID’s, or flash a badge and say we were a reporter for a magazine — it made things a lot easier.”
Asked whether he ever questioned his work, the former agent replied, “I-ook — they (his superiors) were telling us, ‘keep an eye on them.’ and to do that you're going to have to infringe un somebody's freedom.”
“These kids were directly involved with foreign stuff," the former agent continued “We always worried about drugs from Communist China, KGB agents and foreign guns. That’s what gave us the right to come in."
By the time he left the agency in early 1972, hi* continued. his unit’s domestic files were huge. “At the end," he said, “we were working on
anti-war professors and attorneys. We d figured out a way to log and map up the whole world.”
“The goal of our operation," he said, “was to find out beforehand what the radicals wore going to do — it was preventative. We just wanted to find out what they were up to and pass it on.”
In thai reward, the former
CIA man said. “The professors were great. They wanted to work with you."
“A professor,” he added, “no matter how liberal he was — he was mad. He didn’t want those* kids to tell them how to run his university.”
Ford Delaying Public Comment On CIA Report
VAIL, Colo. (AP) — President Ford will delay a response to allegations of domestic spying by the Central Intelligence Agency until after his return to Washington next week. Press Secretary Ron Nessen said Saturday.
Nessen said Ford will hi* reviewing a report he received Thursday from CIA Director William Colby “over the next few days” and will discuss the matter with Colby and others after returning to the capital, probably on Jan. 2.
“There will bi* an announcement on the subject within several days after the completion of those discussions,” Nessen said. He added that neither hi* nor Ford would discuss the subject further until that time
