The limit, he said, would protect them against catastrophic costs for serious illness. While Ford's message forshadowed clashes on a number of issues with the Democratic majority in Congress, it also staked out some positions that would set him apart from Reagan. While Reagan has proposed large-scale transfers of federal programs to the states, Ford came out for tightening rather than abolishing federal welfare programs. Ford also called for what he described as long overdue reform of the scandal-ridden food stamp program. A major change would limit benefits to those whose net income is below the poverty level, currently $5,050 for a family of four. He said temporary extensions of special unemployment benefits will continue in 1976 and that he will ask for contin Profit taking leaves market mixed again NEW YORK (AP) -The stock market was mixed today, running up against profit taking pressures in an extremely busy session on Wall Street. The noon Dow Jones average of 30 industrial stocks was down 2.13 at 941.59, while gainers maintained a moderate over-all lead over losers on the New York Stock Exchange. Analysts said the near-record pace of activity resulted from heavy profit taking piled on top of continued buying prompted by signs of an improving economy and the recent decline in interest rates.

Ford advanced two plans he said would stimulate needed business investment, One would provide fast depreciation of productive facilities, aimed especially at areas of high unemployment -which under present circumstances would cover much of the country. Another would be designed to encourage persons of moderate income to buy stock in U.S. firms. The purchase price for such long-term investments could be deducted for tax purposes, with the proceeds to be subject to tax only if cashed in later. To make it easier for heirs to retain family farms and businesses, Ford said the estate tax on such inheritances should be postponed and stretched out. He also said he will propose pro- sive reaction in the market either way to President Fords State of the Union Message Monday night.

Those are themes the President is expected to stress when he begins his personal hunt for votes in the presidential primary elections. While not mentioning his GOP challe-nger, Ford used his State of the Union platform Monday night to declare that Reagan's budget proposals go too far, saying at one point that the federal government cannot dump welfare onto the states. Fords address offered what seemed a multiple choice of possible campaign slogans: A New Realism, Common Sense, The Right Direction." And it also provided his most direct retort so far to the proposals of Reagan, who has advocated the phased elimination of more than $90 billion in federal social programs, with the states to be Interim police chief to By RAY SULLIVAN Sentinel staff writer City manager Harvey Rose said this morning an interim police chief will be appointed by the end of the month. The person will replace Chief Ben Meyers who is leaving that day. "I have in mind a procedure to follow in the interim before a permanent appointment is made, which I will announce Jan. 30," Rose said. He said he will make a number of movements within the department to serve the purposes of the interim status, which will also be announced Jan. 30. Rose said a permanent chief will be chosen by a four-member screening board, which would include himself, within six months. He declined to identify the other board members until the recruitment has begun. He feels pressure could build on them from being contacted by potential candidates and community members. Two of the members have some law enforcement related experience, the city manager said. He also would not eliminate any names of people who might serve on the board. Oil reps list blocks to shale development SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Environmental pressure, congressional efforts to break up large oil companies and price controls on petroleum threaten development of oil from shale, industry spokesmen said Monday. Two dozen members of the Rocky Mountain Oil and Gas Association's Committee on Oil Shale, representing companies claiming to have invested $500 million in efforts to develop oil shale, spoke' at a news conference. They included representatives of Atlantic Richfield, Shell, Texaco, Ashland, Union and Skyline, a Utah oil company. Bob Meeker, manager of Shell's Mining Ventures Division, said even if Congress guarantees loans for synthetic fuel development, Shell couldnt go ahead until enviromental opposition and congressional attempts to break up major oil companies are decreased. He said the energy bill passed by Congress last month "kills oil shale by fixing the average per-barrel price of domestic crude oil at just under $8. A consulting engineer, Russell Cameron of Denver, estimated the eventual cost per barrel of producing shale oil at $20. The price of imported oil, about $14 a barrel, is favorable compared with what it would cost to produce oil from shale now, said Mike Spence, vice president of the Denver-based Oil Shale Corp., partly owned by Skyline and Ashland. He said shale will be developed, but the question is when. The shale industry faces high capitalization costs, with extraction plants costing many times what conventional oil rigs do, he said, adding that the high cost of such a plant is "an unacceptable risk to most companies. He said a plant that daily would pro Be Your Own Man IN THE NATIONS' FASTEST GROWING INDUSTRY Old ailablithed company, 30 yaari nginring manufacturingmarketing -pertii offer! a unique butineii opportunity to the man capable of owning hit own business and representing our systems product to businessmen which can increase their net profit by 50 to 80 without additional advertising, inventory or employees.

Saying the country needs a strong defense posture to strengthen its hand in international negotiations and keep its responsible for continuing them if they choose. What Ford wants to do is hold the increase in federal spending to about 5 per cent in the new budget. Democratic candidates for the White House chorused criticism of the President, saying he doesn't want to do enough to revive the economy and spur employment. ' But Fords first order of political business was Reagan, not the Democrats. Thus his defense of social programs, which he said "reflect our generosity as a people,. even as he criticized Inequities and abuses. Complex welfare programs cannot be reformed overnight," he said. Surely we cannot simply dump welfare into the laps of the 50 states, their local taxpayers or private charities, and just walk away from it. Nor is it the right time for massive and sweeping changes while we are still recovering from a recession." Reagan said in Chicago on Sept. 26 that he wants to transfer authority and The board is structured differently than when Meyers was chosen two years ago. Rose and City Atty. Gerald Ashby were the screening committee then. He said he will be placing ads in national journals and expects 100 applications for the post. Qualifications haven't been drawn up in detail yet, Rose added, but expects they will include a combination of college and experience amounting to a minimum of 10 years of progressively responsible police work. Emphasis will be placed on administrative and community relations ability, he said. The hiring of a new captain to replace Capt. Robert Burnett, who resigned last fall to return to the West Coast, will not be affected appreciably by the new vacancy, Rose noted. Candidates for that slot have been narrowed to three lieutenants from within the Grand Junction police department and three from outside. Rose said the last expected interview is scheduled for next Monday and an announcement of the selectee would be made within a couple of days. If the cap duce 50,000 barrels of oil from shale would cost at least $1 billion and couldn't be built until at least the early 1980s. Cameron said if the loan-guarantee bill could pass this year, it might permit Interior Department authorization of a shale plant by 1978. But Spence said it would likely take 6-10 years after authorization to construct the needed extraction plant. Hollis Dole, manager of Atlantic Richfields Colony Shale program, said his company dropped participation in one Colorado shale tract because Were pulling in our horns. We have other places we can invest our money than in development of these costly synthetic fuels.. Congress doesnt seem to realize the national energy crisis were in, he said. Earl Ramsey, program director of the White River Shale Project in Utah, said in addition to free market prices, the companies need government support before they can get oil from shale. He said they need initial support to develop technology, plus continuing government aid in the form of guaranteed loans, price supports or tax incentives.

Warning against the crippling of our foreign intelligence services, Ford revenue resources for $90 billion worth of federal programs to states, to run them or drop them. Among his targets : more than $22 billion in welfare and other income security programs. Reagan has been emphasizing that he wants a phased and systematic transfer of authority, not an immediate slash of federal social programs. But his budget 'plan has become the major target of Fords campaign advocates. And the President outlined his own formula for handling these programs, pointedly covering many of the same areas involved in the Reagan plan. So, too, with revenue-sharing. Ford urged its extension, to continue lumpsum grants to the cities and states. Reagan would end it, saying the money should stay at the local or state level in the first place. The difference boils down to Ford proposals that would maintain federal aid programs while streamlining them and giving state governments more leeway in use of the money. be named tain-designate is from outside the city, he would probably be on board with 30 days. "The captain to be named will be selected for that slot. If he chooses to then apply for the chiefs job he would be considered by the unnamed screening committee, he said.

The Commerce Department said the volume of total output, or Gross National Product, dropped 2 per cent during 1975, compared with a 1.8 decline in 1974. The result gave 1975 the biggest drop in output volume for the economy since World War II.
