Romney Tells Senators Big 3 6 Dictate v to Buyers of Autos WASHINGTON (UJ3 -- The president of American Motors accused the auto industry's "Big Three" Friday of dictating to American motorists instead of letting them choose 1 the' kind of cars they want.' The, auto maker, Gwrge Romney, said his own firm on the other hand-was' keeping "a rendezvous with public opinion" by producing its smaller Rambler model. · v - Romney said'the ."Big Three'-i firms-^-Chrysler;.Ford-and Genl Motors--are so "muscle- bound" with heavy fixed investment'"that it would cost them lundreds of millions of dollars o make any basic change's in car styles. Instead of letting the customer reign as · "king," he added. :he Big Three is dictating to him.

ALSO told the Seriate antimonopoly . subcommittee, which is investigating auto-pricing policies, that this year's United Auto. Worker's contract demands were likely to touch of "another blockbuster chain - reaction wage-price spiral." He said the Big Three and the NAW have grown so powerful they threaten to destroy competition and kill off "genuine'.'. ; collective bargaining.' "Legislation is.- needed," he said, "to divide the'present excess power of both the industry and, the union in the automobile business. The economic size and influence of -the Big Three is now' so far-reaching that their policy decisions are potentially capable of producing prosperity or depression," he said. ·. ' union power would prohibit affiliated u n i o n s representing more than .."about 10,000" em- ployes of a single employer from' combining in collective bargaining demands · . against more than one company. AFFILIATED unions would" be free to.combine in bargaining with employers having less than 10,000 employes, but only _ within prescribed geographical:' limits. To limit business monopoly/ Romney proposed that a com-' pany engaged in more than one basic industry should be limited to 25 per .cent of total industry _. sales and 35 per cent for a company tied in with .only one industry. Applying this rule to the auto. business, he said,-..would mean "General Motors and Ford each would become the sources of Romney's proposals to limit new companies."
