Meany Calls on Congress To Fix Pay-Price Policies By LAWRENCE L. KNUTSON Awociated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - AFL- CIO 'President George Meany said today President Nixon has failed to control the economy fairly and effectively. He called On Congress to revamp wage- price policies and enact an excess-profits fax on business. Using such words and phrases as "mess," "farce," "empty promios," "dismal record," "unjust," and "unbalances," Meany said the system is weighted against the American working man with rising prices, rising profits and depressed wages. Meany W lio led the walkoff of organized labor from (he 1 ay Board, accused ranking administration officials of distorting statistics to support an otpnnism he said was in no way justified. In testimony prepared for the congressional Joint Economic Lommiltee, Meany said Dr Herbert Stein, chairman of the I resident's Council of Economic Advisers, gave an "utterly distorted" description of wage rands in his appearance before Hie committee last week. "The record is sharply different from Dr. Stein's scare story of a 9.3-per-cent yearly rale of 1ST QUAUTY GUARANTEED!

Meany said that after a one- month bulge at the end of the wage-price freeze, wages have stayed within the Pay Hoard's 5.5-ner-cenl control standard. In testimony Wednesday, Pay 3oard Chairman George Boldl said t h a t the weighted average of cases shows a settlement rate of 4.3 per cent. Meany said Price Commission Chairman C. Jackson Grayson presented the committee with "reams of statistics designed to show that price controls are working." Said Meany: "He forgot Ihe most important statistic--the price tag." "Anyone who has done any shopping in recent months mows that the administration's Jrice-control program is hardly nore t h a n an empty promise," Meany said. "Food prices have gone through the roof. Olher trices and rents are moving up rapidly. "The major gains in profits are going to big banks, corporations and conglomerate giants," against which the administration has been slow to act, Meany said. Sen. William Proxmire said in Wednesday's questioning of Boldt that a similar delay has been "a calculated, deliberate, planned lactic of this administration in regard to the Pay Board." Boldt denied there has been undje delay, and stated that charges the While House put pressure on -any board members to arrive at a certain deci sion are "totally false."

Environment Measure Fails To Get House Reconsideration By CARL MILLIARD Associated Press Writer DENVER (AP) - House members Wednesday killed a move to revive a bill to estab- ish a stats environmental policy act and in doing so reflected the generally bitter mood that prevails in the closing days of the 1972 legislative session. Technically the bill died Tuesday night when it was killed by a standing vote. But Rep. Sandy Arnold, R-Boulder, who has carried a majority of land use bills in the house, said the measure was too good to lose. Since he had voted on the prevailing side, he said, he served notice then he would move to reconsider Wednesday. Debate on the motion to reconsider degenerated into a quarrel between Democrats and Republicans as to whether either side had been treated fairly. Rep. Richard Lamm, D-Den ver, who was the primary sponsor of the first environmental ]wlic.y act--whivh was introduced several years ago nnc failed then--said the new bil was in fact not a true environmental policy act and did verj little to protect the land. Lamm criticized Republicans for barring Democratic input on the neasure. Hut his main objec- on, he said, was that the bill "like a statue in the park ... s pose is heroic." Lamm praised Arnold, how- ver, for his sincerity, honesty nd work on the bill. Rep. Don Friedman, R-Den- ;r, called for both Republi- ans and Democrats to "look at ho they were siding with" r hen they voted against the ~~^ preset thittts^ii^? iinsrsan^season-insects..·%; M,-, ' · ' : · ' : · · ?
