The finance committee to re elect the president May have violated the act by failing to keep a detailed exact account of the $25,000 and its proceeds and failing to disclose details of the sum in a june to 1972, report the Gao said.

In the letter written Friday and made Public saturday by Scott a office the governor said he understood revealing such information is a violation of Federal Law a and in violation of the civil and constitutional rights of the parties a i am certain that you desire to see tile rights and privileges of All persons regardless of their political affiliation respected and observed by Federal officials and therefore a thorough investigation by you seems both merited and demanded in this instance a Scott wrote die governors letter came Only a Day after Scott had issued a statement saying the 13 men recommended for prosecution by the irs a Are being nailed to a political Cross. By a shadowy official of the Federal a this official wrapped in an Anonymous cloak and keeping an Eye on a Calendar with nov. 7 election Day circled in red is spoon feeding serious accusations and insinuations to certain selected elements of the North Carolina press a Scott said.

Western specialists Here figure the soviets have run up a Bill of around $1.4 billion in Grain deals with the United states Canada France and Australia. . Credit for $500 million in Grain purchases this year eases some of the immediate pres sure but that still leaves $900 million to be raised. This is a sizable sum for a country whose total Trade with developed Western countries last year amounted to $5.6 billion. Unless the soviets have a special Reserve fund that no one knows about there Are two main ways they can raise the Money a by cutting Back on planned Industrial investment and a better Deal for the soviet consumer or Selling Gold of which the soviet Union is one of the worlds major producers. Rumours of soviet Gold sales carried out or planned have been cropping up in London and Switzerland. The soviet uru on never publishes any accounting of its foreign currency holdings or Gold reserves. It counts in detail railway cars and washing machines but never discloses its annual Gold production. So far As specialists Here know the soviet Union has made no substantial Gold sales since the mid-1960s. In the years 1963-65, also a time of Harvest troubles soviet Gold sales Are believed to have run around $500 million a year. In 1966 they tapered off to insignificance. There is a possibility that the soviets Are quietly and regularly Selling off Small amounts of Gold. In earlier years the soviets tended to make big Gold deals. For special purposes and major payments they either sold or transferred Large amounts of Gold. But that was at a time when Gold sold at the fixed rate of $35 an ounce no matter How much was put on the Market. With a free Price now running nearly double the intergovernmental fixed Price of 38 an ounce the soviets face a different kind of Market. If they tried to sell Large quantities at one time they could depress the Market and lower the value of their Gold. Thus some observers Here do not look for any dramatically Large soviet Gold sales. They speculate that the soviets May have started Selling off Small amounts of Gold to avoid big deals that would weaken prices. This could account for unofficial reports Over the past few months that soviet Gold was being sold in Zurich Switzerland. The . Treasury confirmed last month that a relatively Small shipment of soviet Gold 31,327 ounces had been received from Switzerland by a licensed american buyer. Just How much Gold the soviets have in Reserve is closely guarded secret. Bartow. Fla.
