BA-8«pt. 10. 1972 'S^^JK^.,...^.^ Selected Gravesites To Get Special Care A special maintenance program for selected gravesites at Spring Hill Cemetery will start April 1, 1973. President Fred L. Rippetoe of the Spring Hill Cemetery Assn. said the program will apply only to those gravesites owned by persons who have paid into a permanent trust fund. All such sites will be marked to indicate that they are in a "perpetual care" program. The association will get necessary maps from the city engineering department so that the locations of all sites can be specifically designated. The fund, now up to $74,335, Mayor D. Boone Dawson, vice president; Laura Singleton, secretary; Mrs. Hamilton Morris, treasurer; and Eliza MacCorkle Smith, Ruffner Payne and former Mayor John A. Shanklin, directors. Is expected to reach $100,000 or possibly $125,000 by next spring. Rippetoe said. About $500,000 to $600,000 is needed for a full program, he added. The maintenance program will be financed by fund investments. Accumulated interest to date amounts to $1,686. All maintenance work will be done under contract on a bid basis.

This program has been regarded as inadequate for many years. There are about 65,000 graves in the old cemetery. About 1,200 to 1,500 have been brought under the projected special program. The decision to start the program next April was made at a meeting of association officers last week at Rippetoe's residence, which serves as the organization's principal office, 1582 Quarrier St. Other officers are former Minister Mohammed Hassan Zciy- yat, former Egyptian permanent representative to the United Nations and -former information minister, was named Egyptian foreign minister Saturday.

Refund i /r Is Denied Chrysler their increases after Oct. l. whether th« »uto price increases WASHINGTON-tf-The Price Commission said Saturday it has turned down a proposal by Chrysler Corp. UK boost prices on its 1973 models and then refund the extra charges if the government finally turns down the increase. It was the latest development in the administration's effort to keep prices on 1973 automobiles down. And the decision came as the commission prepared for a round of public hearings beginning Tuesday on the automobile industry and pricing practices on its 1973 models. The commission said Chrysler wanted to put a notice on each car saying that it was offering a tentative price and promising a refund if the government approved a smaller price after public hearings. Chrysler is seeking to raise car prices by $91.32 to cover the cost of safety equipment, bumpers, pollution controls, plant safety, environment and products improvements. THE COMMISSION has rejected proposed price increases by the two largest auto makers, Ford and General Motors, on grounds that each appeared to be in danger of violating allowable profit margins. However, the two companies plan to refile Finland, E. Germany To Establish Relations HELSINKI--W--Finland and East Germany have agreed to establish diplomatic relations, the Finnish government announced. The commission said its pub- lie hearings would be designed toj gather facts on the entire industry, not necessarily evidence on justified.
