By The Associated Press
THE UNITED AUTO WORKERS has set a strike deadline of

reached on a new contract.

mese civilians with automatic rifle fire.

THE SUPREME COURT agreed to hear boxer Muhammad
Ali's appeal on his draft conviction yesterday and refused the
case of James Hoffa, Jailed president of the Teamsters Union.
All's decision meant he will have his chance to fight Joe Fraz-
ier for the heavyweight title this March in what is expected to be the
richest title bout in ring history.
For Hoffa, the court's action means he will continue to serve a
remaining five year prison term and will be unable to keep his office
unless his parole board gives his leave.

According to a .U.S. Embassy spokesman, the Soviet Foreign Min-

WASHINGTON (P) - Calling
campaign spending a national
scandal, John W. Gardner, head
of a public interest lobby,
brought s u i t in federal court
yesterday to bar the use of dum-
my fund-raising committees.
Gardner's class action suit
named the Republican and Dem-
ocratic national committees and
the Conservative party as de-
fendants but he said:
"This is not an attack on the
political party system or on any
individual party official or con-
tributor. It is an attack on un-
limited campaign spending."
The newly organized Com-
mon Cause, which Gardner
heads, charged that political
parties established a "multi-.
plicity of dummy national com-
mittees" to encourage individual
contributions to a single candi-
date in excess of the $5,000 limit
The election law states that
no one person may contribute
more than $5,000
Gardner maintained also that
political committees violate the
rule that they cannot receive or
spend more than $3 million per
The complaint said political
committees arranged for banks
and others to make loans of ov-
er $5,000 to contributors with
the knowledge that the funds
would be given to a single can-
didate or political committee.
In the past campaign for ex-
ample, the National Republican
Senatorial. Committee g a v e
roughly $5,000 each to such
groups as "D.C. Committee for
Effective Legislation" "Commit-
tee to Further Educational Op-
portunities," and "Citizens for

GOP money into the campaign

didate Richard Roudebush had

son was the sole donor to 38 of
In effect, what the administra-
tion is doing in its campaig'n to
spur production, employment and
the sagging economy is to defer
taxes for businessmen.
The economic thinking behind
the move was challenged, how-
ever, by two Democratic senators
who issued statements in W a sh-
ington criticizing the President's
Sen. Birch Bayh of Indiana said
he can't see how "a minor adjust-
ment" in depreciation allowances
will encourage any increased in-
vestment in plant° and equipment,
and Sen. George McGovern of
South Dakota' contended that ac-,
celerating depreciation allowances
is "among the least effective ways"
of stimulating the economy.
Under the guidelines laid down
Monday, one key change will per-
mit a 20 per cent speedup in
claiming tax write-offs.
"Past experience," the President
said in a statement, "demonstrates
that depreciation liberalization
will stimulate the pace of spending
on new plant and equipment,
which has been levelling off, and
thus create jobs.
"As a result, federal tax col-
lection in the long run will in-
Nixon said, too, that: "A liber-
alization of depreciation allow-
ances is essentially a change in the
timing of a tax liability. The pol-
icy permits business firms to re-
duce tax payments now, when ad-
ditional purchasing power is
needed, and to make up these pay-
ments: in later years.
"Clearly, therefore, these steps
toward meaningful depreciation
reform are important for the pre-
sent-in light of current economic
conditions-and for the future-to
maintain the growth which h a s
made this nation the strongest
and most productive the world
has ever known."
Another benefit Nixon foresaw is
an increase in the competitive
position of American exports, and
strengthening the balance of in-
