HUEY NEWTON, a founder and the highest ranking officer in
the Black Panther party, went on trial again yesterday for the
fatal shooting of an Oakland policeman.

turned by the California Court of Appeal two years later.

"The Selling of the Pentagon."

WASHINGTON (/P) - President
Nixon ruled out Tuesday any
stimulation of the economy with
new tax cuts, coupling his deci-
sion with a veto of a $5.6-billion
public works bill designed to cre-
ate more jobs. '
In deciding to stick with his
present economic policies, Nixon
named Treasury Secretary John
Connally as his chief economic
spokesman, a newly created post.
Connally, a Democrat and
three-time Texas governor, told
newsmen Nixon feels the econo-
my is on the right path and does
not need new stimulants now.
Democratsresponded by criti-
cizing Nixon's decision to stay
put with his economic policies
and the veto.
Connally said that, although it
will take time, the present 6.2
per cent unemployment rate will
begin to decline through the poli-
cies the President has laid out.
The secretary summed up Nix-
on's ideas about the economy this
way: "He is not going to insti-
tute a wage and price review
board. He is not going to insti-
tute mandatory wage-and-price
controls. He is not going to seek
tax reductions. He is not going
to increase fiscal spending."
All these proposals have been
mentioned within Nixon's admin-
istration and by Democrats as
measures to cut into unemploy-
ment and battle inflation.
Nixon vetoed the public works
bill by saying it "would not even
make a real start on delivering
its implied promise" of creating
new jobs quickly.
The President said he was ve-
toing the bill because of a $2-bil-
lion section of the measure that
would set up public works pro-
jects in localities with high un-
A similar law approved in 1962
indicated an 18-month time lag
before the vetoed measure would
become fully effective, Nixon
said. He said by then "further
stimulation would be unnecessary
But the President asked Con-
gress to enact promptly an emer-
gency employment act to finance
creation of temporary public
service jobs. He argued these
jobs could be filled quickly and
help cut unemployment.
The vetoed measure includes
money for the Appalachian Re-
gional Commission and the Eco-
nomic Development Administra-
