Hoffa's 'foster son' O'Brien sentenced

DETROIT (UPI) - Charles
"Chuckie" O'Brien, the self-
proclaimed foster son of missing for-
mer Teamsters president James R.
Hoffa, was sentenced in federal court
Thursday to two concurrent one-year
prison terms for lying on a bank loan
application.
SHOPLIFTERS
ATLANTA (AP) - "You are senten-
ced to write a research paper, make an
apology, give two weekends of volun-
teer service. .
Rex Ruff, president of the Georgia
Council of Juvenile Court Judges,
doesn't think he is doing anything in-
novative with his sentencing in shoplif-
ting cases. He believes he is simply
doing something that makes sense.
And statistics suggest Judge Ruff's
approach is working. In 1976, 212 cases
of shoplifting came before his court, but
as of Sept. 1, 1977, he had dealt with
only87.

Chief U.S. District Judge Cornelia
Kennedy also ordered O'Brien to pay a
$5,000 fine. She said she would recom-
mend to the Attorney General's office
that O'Brien be permitted to serve the
terms in Florida, where his family
lives.
O'Brien said he would appeal the

conviction.
His sentence in the bank loan case
will also be served concurrently with a
four-month prison term he was handed
earlier for violating federal labor laws
by accepting a $3,000 car from a Detroit
auto dealership the Teamsters union
was trying to organize.

The earlier conviction is currently
being reviewed by the Sixth U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals.
O'Brien, a former union organizer
who now lives in Florida, emerged as
a key figure during the government's
investigation of the 1975 Hoffa disap-
pearance.

Friedman: Recession inevitable

DETROIT (UPI) - Economist
Milton Friedman says the U.S.'
economy will fall into a major recession
by 1980, following a period of "double
digit" inflation next year.
"We may still be heading for a
recession in 1978, depending on how the
government reacts, to inflation,"
Friedman said Thursday in a speech to
members of the Economic Club of
Detroit.
"But if we don't have one this year,
then we'll have a worse one next year or
the next."
Friedman predicted inflation, fueled
by massive government spending and
unsound federal monetary - policies,
"probably will be eight or nine per cent
by the end of the year, and may be into
double digits in 1979."
ATTEMPTS by the Federal Reserve

Board to slow down the rising inflation
rate by tightening money supplies will
bring on the recession, he said.
"We are in an inflationary period,
and the only way to get off that inflation
is to slow the economy," he said. "It's a
tragedy, but there are no other good op-
tions."
Friedman, a University of Chicago
economics professor and winner of the
1976 Nobel Prize in Economic Science,
was in Detroit to promote a proposed
constitutional amendment to limit
taxes and government spending.
Michigan voters rejected a similar
proposal in 1976. He said various forms
of the proposal are under consideration
in several other states.
"I believe the country is coming to a
turning point," Friedman said. "The
role of government is approaching a
level that will destroy our economic
freedom. At the moment, the best
chance we have is to enact a tax
limitation amendment to control
government spending."
Friedman said President Carter's
proposed $19 billion tax cut, "is no tax

in federal spending, it would fuel in-

"And inflation definitely is a tax," he
