VOLUME 92 — NUMBER 202 fWlar CITY FINAL 15 CENTS CEDAR RAPIDS. IOWA. TUESDAY, .JI LY 30, 1974 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES No Easing In Interest Rate: Bums WASHINGTON (UPI) - Federal Reserve Chairman Arthur Burns Tuesday ruled out any slackening of current high interest rates until “the fires of inflation burn themselves out.” Burns, in a strong defense of federal reserve monetary poli-| cy, said that tight money and credit is necessary along with a reduction of federal spending and other measures to bring the country out of its double digit inflation. Burns testified before the house banking committee. Burns’ renewal of his opposition to any change in the fed’s tight money policy came as Vice-president Ford expressed concern about the current record high interest rates and said he hoped the fed “will not be too tough too long.” Burns said the fed would continue its tight money policies! “long enough to let the fires of inflation burn themselves out.” Burns said the appropriate; course for monetary policy “is the middle ground.” He saidi present monetary policy had re-? suited in a growth rate of about 6 percent over the last year in the money supply, which he said “is still too high for the stability' of average prices over the longer term. ‘‘But moderation in the growth rate of money and credit supplies must be achieved gradually to avoid upsetting effects on the real economy,’’ Burns testified. “A return to price stability will require a national commitment to fight inflation this year and in the years to come.” he said. “Monetary policy must play a key role in this endeavor and we in the federal reserve recognize that fact. “We are determined to reduce over lime the rate of monetary and credit expansion lo a pace consistent with a stable price level.” Burns said the process of cutting the federal budget must begin now’ and that congress must resist any temptation to cut taxes or create new public works programs.

Nixon, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in disregard of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has repeatedly engaged in conduct violating the constitutional rights of citizens, impairing the due and proper administration of justice and the conduct of lawful inquiries, or contravening the laws governing agencies of the executive branch and the purposes of these agencies. This conduct has included one or more of the following: I. He has. acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavored to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposes not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner. 2. Ile misused the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the secret service, and other executive personnel, in violation or disregard of the constitutional rights of citizens, by directing, or authorizing such agencies or personnel to conduct or continue electronic surveillance or other investigations for purposes unrelated to national security, the enforcement of laws or any other lawful function of his office: he did direct, authorize, or permit the use of information obtained thereby for purposes unrelated to national security, the enforcement of laws, or any other lawful function of his office: and he did direct the concealment of certain records made by the Federal Bureau of Investigation of electronic surveillance. 3. He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, in violation or disregard of the constitutional rights of citizens, authorized and permitted to be maintained a secret investigative unit within the office of the President, financed iii part with money derived from campaign contributions to him. which unlawfully utilized the resources of the Central Intelligence Agency, engaged in covert and unlawful activities, and attempted to prejudice the constitutional right of an accused to a fair trial. I. Ile has failed to take earc that the laws were faithfully executed by failing to act when he knew or had reason to know that his dose subordinates endeavored to impede and frustrate lawful inquiries by duly constituted executive, judicial, and legislative entities concerning the unlawful entry into the headquarters of the Democratic national committee. and the cover-up thereof and concerning other unlawful activities including those relating to the confirmation of Richard Kleindienst as attorney general of the United States, the electronic surveillance of private citizens, the breakin into the office of Dr. Lewis Fielding, and the campaign financing practices of the Committee To Re-elect the President. 5. In disregard of the rule of law: he knowingly misused the executive power by interfering with agencies of the executive branch: including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the criminal division, and the Office of Watergate special prosecution force, of the department of justice, and the Central Intelligence Agency, in violation of his duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed. In all of this, Richard M. Nixon has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as President and subversive of constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States. Wherefore Richard M. Nixon, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office. resolution to the U. N. Security Council calling “for speedy (withdrawal of all foreign forces” on Cyprus. But the Greek troops were the only ones the Russians mentioned by name. The resolution also said a representative of ousted President Makarios should be invited to the Geneva talks.
