WASHINGTON (AP) - A spokesman for President Ford has ruled out any tax increase requests for this year but would not do the same for 1975. Press Secretary Jerald F. terHorst said it would be unrealistic to expect congressional action on taxes in the remaining weeks of Congress' 1974 session. "At this time, the President has no plans for asking for a tax increase," terHorst said. But then he noted that Ford would be outlining his 1975 program in January. Asked if a tax increase to fight inflation would be part of Ford's requests then, terHorst said that is the "sort of issue a President always has before him." Shortly after terHorst's remarks to newsmen, President Leonard Woodcock of the United Auto Workers emerged from a half-hour session with Ford and had a good deal of praise for the new President. But Woodcock said, "I would be opposed to a tax increase across the board." Instead, Woodcock suggested tax cuts for lower and middle- raiik taxpayers and increases m the upper brackets and for corporations. Woodcock said Ford was approaching the situation with candor and expressed hope that Ford's Sept. 27-28 economic summit meeting would help educate the public on the dimensions of the problems. Later, a White House spokesman said half a dozen preparatory meetings for the summit will be held at cities around the country. TerHorst's remarks on taxes came as he relayed a statement from Ford on the appointment of presidential economic counselor Kenneth Rush as chairman of the new eight- member Council on Wage and Price Stability. The council is to monitor wage and price activities and use persuasion to discourage those which might be inflationary. Ford also signed a $4.5 billion public works appropriation bill for the fiscal year that began July 1, but he did so with reluctance, noting that the total exceeded the budget by $80 million. Ford asked Congress to act under a new budget reform law to defer that amount of spending for a year.
