'.Nixon administration officials privately doubt there'll be any change in the figure up or down anytime soon. For the record, they say the decision is up to the board. ..--The board meets jointly with .the Price Commission today in a session that probably will trigger debate on changing the standard.

"All the heavy hitters are up" is the way one member described the situation. Contracts in a number of the large industries, with the exception of steel, come up for bargaining in 1073. Organized labor,. which now is felt by some insiders to be tacitly accepting the wage- pricc-control system, might actively fight the program if the standard were lowered. The board, as it has done from the start, is considering public acceptance, apparently feeling that too much tightening could well cause an outbreak of strikes, damaging the economic recovery. Another argument against changing the standard is that the "price picture, although greatly improved from a year ago, is still not good enough to justify lowering the figure. Of particular disappointment is the continued rise in wholesale prices, which probably will be translated into higher consumer prices in the next several months.

Interviewed by newsmen on NBC's "Meet the Press," Shriver said Ihe Nixon administration has given President Nguyen Van Thieu of South Vietnam virtual veto power over U.S. foreign policy. "Gen. Thieu," Shriver said, "should not be the sole life-and death criterion for thousands of Americans." . A n d he accused Secretary 1 of State William P. Rogers of poli- ticizing the Slate Department by..telling a news conference that Shrlvcr's account of the negotiating,. situation in. 1909 was "political fantasy." . Ending a'long series of issue briefings with the staff of his running-mate, Sen. George McGovern, Shriver -spent Sunday night with his wife and children in Hyannis Port. Mass.

"I .want an opportunity to talk and listen .. . lo point a new direction for America." ', Shriver's assertion that Nixon "blew" a chance for peace three years ago was repeated by McGovern Sunday. Appear- ing on ABC's "Issues and Answers," the Democratic presidential norriiee said: "A ' national-security memorandum prepared at the beginning of this administration and published in the Congressional Record some lime ago shows very clearly that the administration was aware that North Vietnam had withdrawn a substantial, number: of its divisions from South Vietnam in 1968, that they were in fact giving us a sign that they were willing to Second Round Of SALT Talks Scheduled WASHINGTON '(AP) -- The United States and Russia have decided to hold the second round of the stralegic-arms-lim- itation talks (SALT) in Geneva, probably in October, sources have disclosed. A formal announcement is expected in Washington and Moscow today. Plans for the second phase of the bilateral disarmament talks came as the first-phase interim agreement nearcd final approval in the U.S. Congress. The House and Senate are expected to vote this week on a five-year moratorium on offensive missiles. A defensive-missile treaty was approved by the Senate on Aug. 3. The chief U.S. negotiator, Gerard C. Smith, has said the second-phase talks will consider limitations on bombers and forward-base systems and a more precise and permanent limitation on missiles. Administration spokesmen, including Smith, have said they would not accept the first-phase interim 'agree.ment ,on missiles as a permarteWs'olution; · · The SALT talks started in the fall of 1989 with meetings held alternately in Helsinki and Vienna. The United States felt the arrangement was both cumbersome and costly and considers Geneva a better location. ANNOUNCED BY NIXON The first-phase agreements were announced during President Nixon's trip to Moscow on May 26. While the offensive- missile moratorium is only an i n t e r i m agreement, Nixon wants Congress to act on it before the second round of talks begins. The United States and the Soviet Union are limited under the interim agreement to those offensive missiles already built or under construction as of July 1. The defensive treaty limits each country to two anti-ballistic-missile defense systems, one around the capital city and the second at an offensive-missile site. Some concern has been expressed, notably by Sen. Henry M. Jackson. D-Wash., that the Soviet Union would have a numerical superiority In missile, approximately 2,360 to 1.710. over the United Slates under the interim agreement. The administration maintains, however, that the United States will be able to employ more warhea'ds on its missiles because of an advantage in missile technology. Nevertheless. Jackson has proposed an amendment to require missile equality in any future agreements, and the administration has gone along.
