Ford outings under scrutiny

WASHINGTON - President fire on the issues:

Ford, under increasing attack
from Democratic opponent Jim-
my Carter, has ordered a
search of his records to deter-1
mine how many times he trav-
elled out of Washington as 4a
guest of companies before be-
coming President.
The President's order was dis-
closed yesterday as Carter,
speaking in Plains, Georgia,
called on Ford to make a full
public statement on the issue.

- Democratic nominee Jim-
my Carter said President Fordl
should go before the news me-
dia to discuss reports that the
Watergate special prosecutor is
investigating what happened to
contributions made by two un-
ions to Ford's past congression-
al campaigning.
- Carter acknowledged that
foreign governments had pick-
ed up some of the costs of
trips he took abroad as Georgia
governor when he was trying
to drum up trade for the state.
Carter said the trips were strict-
ly business, and he distinguish-
ed them from acceptance of free
golfing vacations.
CARTER OFFERED his sug-
gestion of a Ford news confer-
ence during his own first for-
mal news conference in almost
two weeks as he wound up a
two-day rest stop at his Plains,
Ga., home.
Carter said the best way for
Ford to clear up the matter
about the Watergate special
prosecutor is for him to "have
a frank discussion with the
American; people through the
news media, which so far he
has failed to do."
The former Georgia governor
said he did not want to be in-
terpreted as having assumed
"that there's any substance to
the allegations. I have no way
to know that."
CARTER SAID special prose-
cutor Charles Ruff should make
public a full report on the in-
vestigation when it is finish-
ed, regardless of whether that
is before or after the Nov. 2
election.
Fuff has repeatedly declined'

comment on the probe, which
reportedly centers around
whether Ford converted cam-
paign funds to his own use
through a local Republican par-
ty organization in Michigan
while he was in the House.
Presidential Press Secretary
Ron Nessen told reporters the
search was ordered Tuesday,!
immediately after White Housel
disclosures that Ford accepted
invitations from at least fourl
major corporations for golfing
trips.
SOME OF THE trips apparent-I
ly were paid for by the firms.
The golf outings, as well as
suggestions in the press of im-
proper use of campaign funds'
when Ford was a Michigan con-
gressman, suddenly have be-
come a major issue in the
campaign for the November 21
presidential election.
Earlier this week, Carter took j
aim at Ford's ties with lobbyists
who played golf with him. The
time has come, -he said, for
a change from the leadership3
"that has been bogged down
in Washington for the last 25
to 30 years, deriving their ad-
vice, their counsel, their finan-
cial support, from lobbyists and
special interest groups."
THE ISSUE could embarrasss
Ford in the five weeks to elec-
tion day, depending on what the
records turn up and how vigor-
ously Carter presses his attack
It is the first time the White
House has been clearly on the
defensive in a campaign in!
which Ford steadily has been
whittling down Carter's lead.
Latest public opinion polls show
Ford trailing the former Georgia
governor by about 10 percen-
tage points, compared to a 20-
point disadvantage in July.

DETROIT (UPI) - Detroit's

the firing of Chief Philip
T a n n i a n, was rocket with
another blow yesterday - the
shooting death of another top
officer.
Deputy Chief Reginald Har-
vel, 47, a 21-year police veteran
and the department's fourth
ranking officer, was found dead
at his home from two gunshot
wounds in the chest.
POLICE released few details
of the incident, but there was
immediate speculation that
Harvel's death might be related
to a federal probe of alleeed
drug trafficking involving high
police officials.1
Officers' said they were
awaiting lab reports to deter-!
mine whether Harvel, who
supervised seven precincts, had
been murdered or committed
suicide.
Tannian, his first day offthe'
job, told reporters on his front
lawn he could not imagine how
anyone could "shoot himself

tion on their investigation of
a ti"ities in that department."
Harvel, a former undercover
n a r c o t i c s officer, was
close friends with another depu-
tv police chief now on a leave
of absence because of the fed-
eral probe.
The investigation led indirect-
lv to Tannian's dismissal.
Yo'ing said Tannian's refusal to
share information of the drug
probe with him led to the
ouster of the chief, who had
served three years. Deputy
Chief William Hart was named
to succeed Tannian, becoming
the first black ever to head the
5,00-man department.
Tannian later told report-
ers that he refused to discuss
the matter with Young to pro-
tect the federal investigation.
