MADRID, Spain () -- The'
Spanish government yesterday
lifted fines levied against more
than 30 Roman Catholic priests
for -criticizing the Franco re-
gime and was reported about to
grant a wide amnesty to prison-
ers held for political and labor
offenses.
Both moves were described asj
a celebration of the ascension
of 37-year-old King Juan Car-
los I, Spain's new chief of state.
THE PRIESTS' FINES, saidI
to total $178,000, were imposed
for complaints made after the
execution on Sept. 27 of five
men convicted of killing police-
men. Officials said priests serv-
ing prison terms for failure to

recession, economists say

WASHINGTON (YP) - The gov-
ernment can do very little tol
influence wages and prices, but
can easily plunge the nation into
recession while trying, a new
publication from the Brookings
Institution said yesterday.
The inability to do anything
about wages results partly from
e government's own payroll
practices ,which do not respond
to downward changes in the
economy, said Robert Hall, an
economist at the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology.

PHILADELPHIA () - Gob-
bling inflation has spared the1
turkey, which still can be
bought at "Roaring Twenties"
prices here. The reason: To-
day's birds eat less and die fat-
ter sooner.
Turkeys were selling for 52
cents a pound here in 1925. To-
day several area supermarkets
are selling them for the same
price, others a few pennies high-
er. In some areas, a turkey can
be bought for even less than in
11925.
T R U E, the contemporary
prices quoted are for frozen
birds, the 1925 ones were fresh.
But then in the 1920s you paid
for the whole bird, including the
feet and innards.
The U. S. Department of Ag-
riculture says the going price
this year for birds is 76.7 cents
per pound compared to 71.2
cents last year. The federal fig-
ures are the average of all siz-
es, shapes and prices for tur-
keys. But a random check of
n e w s p a p e r advertise-
ments across the country show-
ed that a turkey can be bought
for as low as 49 cents per pound.
Sid Yeuson, poultry buyer forj
Food Fair stores in Philadel-

Are You Getting Your Money's Worth??
Ever wonder about those extra fees, 50c each semester?
Wouldn't you like to know what that money goes for?
ANSWER: Your money helps fund an organization called
Rackham Student Government. In the past RSG has sup-
ported a wide variety of student organizations. RSG co-spon-
sors the annual Non-Academic Job-Hunting Conference and
the GEAR office which helps grad s t u d e n ts and their
spouses find part-time jobs in Ann Arbor. Moreover, the
