Nixon a acceptance of a Pardon could be construed As an admission of guilt but f Ord a unyielding defense of the clemency has failed to still criticism of his decision. Ford also said monday night there were no secret reasons for the Pardon and no secret deals with Nixon. And he disclosed he is moving to allay concern among watergate prosecutors about safeguarding Nixon tapes As potential evidence. He said White House aides Are negotiating with watergate special prosecutor Leon Jaworski a staff to remove concerns about preserving for possible courtroom use the tape recordings and presidential documents deemed to be Nixon a property. A responding to a barrage of Pardon related questions at his second broadcast news conference f Ord declared a i am absolutely convinced. I made the right decision in an Effort an honest conscientious Effort to end the watergate divisions and the turmoil in the United Ford maintained that the former president had been Quot shamed and disgraced by his resignation. The president also said he had no inside information on Nixon s health at the time of the Pardon and although he was aware of published reports Nixon was ailing Quot i was More anxious to heal the a number of congressional democrats said they were not satisfied by f Ord a defense of the Pardon.

Grf g0ry Nokes associated press writer Washington apr president Ford has assured americans the nations Economy is not headed for a depression despite Steep inflation and sagging Industrial production. He promised at his news conference monday night new measures Quot to make sure that our Economy improves in the months ahead a but he did not outline them. A let me say very strongly that the United states is not going to have a depression a Ford asserted. The Over All Economy is Strong and employment remains High he said. Quot we do have the problems of inflation. We do have related problems and we re going to come up with some answers that i Hope will solve these problems a Ford said. Quot we Are going to work to make sure that our Economy improves in the months ahead a he added. Statistics support the View that the United states is nowhere near a depression now. Economists regard a depression As a period of Low economic activity marked by mass unemployment deflation a decreasing use of resources and a Low level of investment. In 1933, the worst of the depression years there were 14 million americans out of work about 25 per cent of the labor Force. By contrast there were 4.9 million americans unable to find jobs last month representing 5.4 per cent of the labor Force. While Industrial production is off this year it still is Only 1.8 per cent below the Peak output in november of last year. And the Economy shows no hint of deflation a condition of falling prices. Nevertheless the nations top labor leaders warned Ford last week that the governments current ant inflation policies of tight credit and restrained Federal spending could plunge the country into a deep recession. But administration economic advisers have maintained these policies Are necessary to control inflation Over the Long run even if they produce Short term difficulties.

Robert w Eller associated press writer president f Ord s limited amnesty plan has created a storm of controversy but apparently has drawn few inquiries from draft evaders or deserters and no Early confirmed reports of any takers. The Justice department said to persons identifying themselves As evaders or deserters called seeking information during the first 12 hours alter amnesty was announced. Spokeswoman Gloria c. Brown said some of the Calls came from persons in Canada who said they had no Money tor transportation to a . Attorneys office. She added five department employees will handle amnesty inquiries. Initial reaction to the proposal was predictable. War resisters said it did t go far enough and veterans groups said it went too far. Dratt evaders and deserters living in exile called the proposal unacceptable because it implied guilt on the part of those who had spurned involvement in what they viewed As an Unm Oral War. Veterans groups and some relatives of Vietnam casualties were just As vehement in their opposition Call ing it a betrayal of those who had fought and died in Southeast Asia. The plan probably received its warmest reception in Congress where several key leaders endorsed it. President f Ord on monday set in motion the government machinery to Grant conditional amnesty to Vietnam Era draft evaders and deserters if they reaffirm their allegiance to the United states by Jan. 31, 1975, and work up to 24 months in Low paving Public service jobs. He also indicated that per sons serving prison sentences for Dratt evasion or desertion would be released pending decisions on their cases by an amnesty clemency Board. In Canada the most popular Haven tor the 12,500 deserters and 4,060 fugitive Dratt evaders there apparently was Little interest in accepting the offer of amnesty.
