.PACE TWELVE Hw Wage Curb Urged for Nation "Manufacturer Would Also Legislate Ban On Strikes for Yea/. ' BY ELMER C.'WALKER (Called Prat financial Editor) NKW> YORK, Dec. 23.—A moratorium on wage increoscg and strikes for one year is imperative to save the nation from a business recession,'Charles E Wilson, president- of General Electric Company, said today at a press interview. Industry, nc believed, would forego further price increases if labor would forego Wage increases. Given » year, to apply new technological progress learned during the war eforrt liidustiy could increase production and lower prices, he stated. Through a wage increase moratorium, he felt, the law of supply would take care of price adjustments, high employment could be maintained, industry could expand, and the, people could receive the benefit of technological processes developed during wartime. But, he warned, 'Bcls are off on current "volume of business being maintained if there arc -side.sprcnd increases in wages and prices." Wilson was convinced, he said, that a depression definitely, can be averted but only through an end of wage increases for nt least a yc&r, Ridicules CIO Theory Wilson ridiculed ihe theory recently expounded for the CIO by Robert R. Nathan, a former government economist, that wages could be raised 25 pet cent without a rise in prices. He pointed out thai general electric, and probably the whole electrical equipment industry, prices must be raised 3-4 per cent for each 1 Per cent of wage increase. For example, he noted, a JO per cent wage rise must be followed by a 7.5 per cent price increase. •General Electric currently has a backlog of near $1,00,000000 and is_operating at a. rate of $900 -000 000 production a year, or 100 per ••"£- ° Ver J',! e P re - W! »- 'iB«re, employing 160,000 pcprsons of 10 000 more than Wilson had predicted !n his year-end interview last year Production at General ' Electric to" beeii rising steadily. Wilson explained, .and now is so act cent aoove a year ago. The company noy operates 92 plants, a rise of 14 compared with a year ago. It is In aii expansion program expected to run two • more years, and its research department is working on many new products to be placed on the market in the coming vetus Wilson said. "If we are able to continue operating at the present rate, continuing present wages and prices, and given time for adjustment," Wilson added, "we could comlemplate lower prices and expanding markets. Much depends on maintenance of the status quo. Says Prices Must Decline "It is unfair to ask 140,000.000 Americans to accept even existing price levels. We must apply ourselves to get prices down rather than to have further Inflation. "America has not yet had the benefit of technological progress of the war, because of strikes and shutdowns. We need budly at least one year of adjustment to get full benefit of technological progress, inneiise production ,and pull prices down." Wilson, did not indicate he nnll- cipcilert a wage rise moratorium. He tokt'the press that he did not view the future with great satisfaction. "I believe," he said, "all industry is confronted with upset conditions and further wage demands. Further wage increases will result in price increases which in (urn might bring reverses to the overall economy." Warning that further wage and price increases would contract markets. Wilson said, "the public is lull up on constant price Increases and is even resisting present prices." $4,056,000 Pay Claim Settled by Chemical Firm MIDLAND .Micli., Dec. 23.
