VOLUME OI NUMBER 363 BJ CITY FINAL IO CENTS (MODAR RAPIDS, IOWA, MONDAY, JANUARY 7, 1074 ASSI JCI AT KI) PRESS, UPI, NKW YORK TIM KS GAS PRICE APPEAL REJECTED Ford Hints At Accord On Tapes WASHINGTON (AID - Vice-president Ford says President Nixon, while right in rejecting senate Watergate committee subpoenas, should make available to the committee any evidence related to criminal activity. Ford also said that if the committee trims down and refines its sweeping request for White House documents, then “there may be — and I underline ‘may be’ — an area of compromise.’’ Ford was interviewed Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press”. Ervin Welcome In Morganton, N.C., chairman Sen. J. Ervin of the senate Watergate committee said Monday lie would welcome a com-p r o rn i s e on tile subpoenaed White House material if the agreement were in writing. “We’ve been anxious to re-solve this material all the time,” he said. The agreement should be written, he said, “so there could be no misunderstanding.” The North Carolina Democrat apparently referred to an earlier compromise regarding Nixon’s offer to turn over selected tapes to Sen. John Stcnnis (D-Miss.). Ervin maintains that he and cochairman Sen Howard Baker, (R-Tenn.) thought they had agreed to verbatim transcripts, while the White House later announced that only summaries would be provided. Ervin said the committee’s I list of documents and tapes was j “not so much to ask for be-1 cause this matter went on fori nine months, with people eor-j responding with each other every day.” The vice-president supported Nixon’s rejection Friday of the committee's request for nearly 500 Watergate-related tapes and documents. Ford agreed with the President’s assessment of the subpoenas as “a fishing expedition.” But Ford also said he stood by an earlier statement made during his confirmation hearings that “any evidence that in-J volved a criminal action ought to be made available by the! White House.” Ford said he hadn’t studied the 500 documents being sought by the committee, but noted: “I can’t believe that documents invo lr it it    lr    *    * Simon Pledges Action High Court Against Gas    Gougej1^' fo p|ea WASHINGTON IAF')- Crimi- through which about 700,000 bar-nal action will be taken against j refs aday currently is obtained, those who charge illegal prices    Continued    Leakage for gasoline, federal energy chief William Simon says.

Ile carefully supported Nixon’s refusal to give the senate Watergate committee more than 500 tapes and documents and restated his Iwlief in the President’s innocence.

Interviewed on the NRC radio television program “Meet the Press” on his one month anniversary of becoming vicepresident, Ford indicated he was disappointed by the White House decision to curtail the Watergate counter attack and disclosure program known as “Operation Candor.’’ “I hope and trust, despite what I understand with some reluctance at the present time, that the President will continue v it Ii Operation Can dor,” Ford said He also said tie would like to see “full disclosure, or a white paper involving the ITT matter, and the socalled milk fund con tribution,” plus summaries of the original Watergate tapes.
