Kissinger immediately went
into a meeting with Bonn For-

an evening garden party given
by Chancellor Helmut Schmidt
before going into a two-hour
session with Rabin today.
Earlier, Kissinger wound up

Ford calls economic recovery
first priority for administration
CHICAGO (41) - President Ford declared last
night his administration's first order of business
is full economic recovery but warned against a
free-spending "quick fix" that would rekindle
He said improvements in output, employment
and other indicators mean "we are on the road
to economic recovery." But he said "all neces-
sary steps to make sure this recovery continues"
must be accompanied by caution and restraint.
"I WILL not spend the American people into
more headaches and heartaches for a hollow vic-
tory - a short-term period of economic resurg-
ence that might last a year or, two," Ford said
in a speech prepared for a Midwest business.
group in Chicago.
Just three days after he formally declared his
1976 presidential candidacy, Ford began a three-
day, two-state, campaign-style swing that White
House officials said was a non-political trip, paid
for by the government.
Before coming to Chicago, Fold's schedule fea-
tured a ride in a parade commemorating the 49th
National Cherry Festival in Traverse City, Mich.
ON SATURDAY, he holds a news conference -
to be locally brqadcast - in Chicago, meets with
local Republican leaders and speaks at Chicago
Ford's audience in Chicago was the Mid-Amer-
ican Committee for International Business and
Government Cooperation. His theme once more
was the need for fiscal restraint while spurring
economic recovery and the danger of overspend-
ing by the Democratic-controlled Congress.
He said that moderation and restraint were
the key words in his economic philosophy, declar-
ing "they don't blow your mind. But neither will
they blow the salary and savings you have worked
for hard all your life."
"THIS IS a delicate time, calling for carefully
considered, deliberate decisions, for cautiously
constructed long-range planning," Ford said. "If
we are to have sustained growth, we must grow
"And if we are to avoid new, perhaps worse
inflation than before, then our recovery policies
must be based on fiscal restraint."
"We must not permit government pump-prim-
ing to break the economic dikes," he said. "False
hopes must not be paraded before the American
people - the promise of a quick fix - leaving
them with empty illusions."
THE PRESIDENT pledged to continue to steer
what he called "a firm and steady course in
economic policy" by vetoing what he considered
unnecessary spending voted by Congress. .
"Congress has been playing with fire - at-
tempting to add huge amounts of spending that
will rekindle inflation - and the veto is the

Peron drops m ister
from Argentine cabinet
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP - President Isabel Peron
gave in to pressure from within and outside her government
yesterday fnd dropped Jose Lopez Rega from the cabinet.
:ie was considered the most powerful man in crisis-ridden
The president accepted 58-year-old Lopez Rega's resig-
nation as social welfare minister and presidential secretary,
but no mention was made of his position as personal secre-
tary to Peron. That post, which he also held under her late
husband and predecessor, was regarded as the important
source of his behind-the-scenes power.
FOR WEEKS military chiefs, Peronist labor and party
leaders and wide segments of the public have insisted on
Lopez Rega's ouster from the government, including his
s private secretary's job.
An official announcement said Peron accepted Lopez
Rega's resignation from the cabinet "because of his insistent
v requests" and that she thanked him for "very important and
In his resignation Lopez Rega asked that it be accepted
to secure the pacification of the disturbed spirits."
FEELING against Lopez Rega had been so strong that
play was nearly suspended at a football game Sunday be-
cause fans would not stop chanting a slogan against him.
One legislator challenged him to a duel and opponents
accused him of links with a right-wing death squad and with
mishandling public funds.
