Reg Murphy, editor of the Atlanta Constitution, was apparently
kidnaped Wednesday night by a political group calling itself the
"Revolutionary Army." The FBI is currently investigating the
affair.

WASHINGTON (UPI) - A fed-
eral Watergate grand jury yes-
terday indicted Jake Jacobsen, a
former aide to President Lyndon
Johnson, on one count of lying to
the grand jury about efforts by
milk producers to win a price-
support increase from the Nixon
administration.
The indictment was the first
handed down in the investigation
of whether the Nixon administra-
tion increased the price sup-
port of raw milk in 1971 in ex-
change for a promise of $2 mil-
lion in donations to Nixon's
1972 re-election campaign.
THE INDICTMENT said Jac-
obsen, 54, of Austin, Tex., who
served as a legislative counsel
to Johnson in 1965-67, knowingly
made false declarations one
month agoswhen the grand jury
questioned him about $10,000 he
had solicited from Associated
Milk Producers Inc. (AMPI).
Jacobsen, a lawyer for AMPI,
allegedly received the $10,000
within two months after the Nix-
on administration reversed itself
on March 25, 1971, and increased
the price support for raw milk.
IT SAID JACOBSEN, who was
active in 1972 in the Democrats
for Nixon organization headed
by John Connally, solicited the
money "on the representation
that such money was to be paid
to a. public official for his assist-
ance in connection with the price
support decision."
The "public official" was not
identified.
The indictment said Jacobsen
lied when he testified last Jan.
25 that he did not touchthe
$10,000 from the time he put it
into a safe deposit box until he
looked at it with an FBI agent
Nov. 27, 1973. It was believed
the money was kept in a bank in
Austin, Tex., of which Jacobsen
is president.
"You are certain about that?"
the indictment said Jacobsen was
asked.
"Yes, sir," it said Jacobsen
replied.

"THE DECLARATION," the
indictment said, "as he then and
there well knew, was false."
The indictment did not say
what happened to the $10,000.
At the time of Jacobsen's al-
leged solicitation of the $10,000,
Connally was President Nixon's
treasury secretary.
Last November, after he tes-
tified secretly before the Senate
Watergate committee, Connally
denied a report he personally re-
ceived $10,000 at one time and
$5,000 on another occasion for
helping the milk industry with
its problems.
"Who ever said that lied,"
Connally said.

Earlier published reports said
#witnesses had told Watergate in-
vestigators Connally was present
when major contributions were
made by dairy officials and a
deal on the price support policy
was discussed.
CONNALLY called the reports
'categorical lies and incredible
rumors."
With the indictment of Jacob-
sen, the number of persons who
have been charged with Water-
gate - related crimes rose to 27.
Of these all but a handful have
waived trial and pleaded guilty
or no contest to the charges.

ATLANTA (UPI) - John
"Reg" Murphy, editor of the At-
lanta Constitution,rapparently
was kidnaped Wednesday night
by a political revolutionary
group that then lapsed into si-
lence without making any de-
mands.
More than 15 hours after the
abduction authorities saidthere
had been no word from the kid-
napers and that they could sug-
gest no motive for the act, al-
though the Constitution saying
the abduction of Patricia Hearst
was the work of a "fanatic and
criminal roup."
MURPHY, 40-year-old fatherT
of two teen-age daughters, was
last seen about 7:30 p. m.
Wednesday when he left his
home to keep an appointment
with a man who claimed he want-
ed to discuss a news story.
At 9:15 p.m., one hour and 45
minutes after Murphy dis-
appeared, the Constitution re-
ceived a phone call from a man
who identified himself as a colo-
nel in the "Revolutionary Army."
The colonel said the army had
taken Murphy captive and that
the Constitution, the state's larg-
est newspaper, would hear fur-
ther from the group.
In quick succession the ab-
ductors alsoplaced calls to
television station WAGA and
Murphy's wife, Virginia. The
caller told WAGA, "We have
Reg Murphy, editor of the Con-
stitution,and don't botherto call
the FBI. It won't help." The FBI
immediately swung into action,
however, and reportedly was'
looking for a green Ford Torino,
in which they apparently believe
Murphy was abducted.
The editorial on the Hearst
kidnaping that appeared last Sat-
urday in the Constitution said
the abduction of Patricia Hearst
"is almost a miniature history
of the problems of our times.
There is a fanatic and criminal

lished order . ..
Fields said Murphy had not
written that particular editorial,
but likely approved it. Asked if
he thought that this was what
prompted Murphy's -kidnaping,
Fields replied: "Your guess is as
good as mine."
Asked what word he had for
the kidnapers, Fields replied:
"We would simply like to hear
from them, to learn what they
want."
