President Johnson this past week called on industry nnd labor to hold the line on prices and wages. He didn't mention the steel- : makers specifically, but its seemed obviotls tliat their lat- its fouhd of selective price increases had prompted his ap-! peal. ( t T .S. Steel Corp., the No. 1 producer, started the price ball rolljhg last Friday with a $5-a- ton increase on cold-rolled sheet, whch Is used heavily in the manufacture of automobiles and appliances. i Other major producers went ( along. Some later announced boosts of $5 a ton on galvanized and aluminum coated sheets. Johnson made his appeal for restraint on price and wage increases at a meeting of the Business Council, an organiza- ' tion of top business executives who advise him on the economy. "I am urging business to refrain from avoidable price increases and to intensify its competitive efforts, he said. '"I intend to urge labor to re' strain its demands for excessive wage increases." The President said further: "If strong labor unions insist on a high wage rise twice the nationwide increase in output per man hour—even where there is no real labor shortage —we are bound to have rising prices. "If members of an industry attempt to raise prices and profit margins—even when they clearly have excess capacity— we are bound to have rising' prices. i "Nobody benefits from a wages-price spiral." Prices went up this past week on other fronts. Higbie Manufacturing Co. and Bundy Corp., major makers of metal tubing for the automotive and appliance industries, raised their prices by 3.5 to 5.5 per cent. Pittsburgh Plate Glass Co., the nation's largest glassmaker, announced a 6 per cent across the board increase on its sheet glass prices. j The three companies said the | raises were due to higher costs of labor and materials. Sunday, Bee. 10, Murder Charges Filed on Texan JOPLiN, Mo. (AP)— Ronald; David Hoguc. 24. of Dallas, Tex., was charged with first degree murder Friday in the fatal shooting of Joplin Policeman Robert Clifton, 34. I Hoguc, shot five times by another policeman, remained in critical condition. One bullet severed his spinal cord. Clifton was killed and Hogue was wounded arter the officer stopped a car Wednesday to question four men and a 13- ycar-old girl. The other four were returned to Bowie, Tex., Friday to face armed robbery charges in the holdup and beating of James Hudson, 48, Bowie grocer, earlier this week. ! They are Billy Frank Rainey and Robert Mulkey, both 18 and of Dallas, Victory B. Mankin Jr., 23, Garland, Tex., and the i girl. Meanwhile, the Commerce Department reported that new factory orders increased during October for the first time in four j months and that the backlog of I unfilled orders reached a record $81.6 billion. New orders rose 0.5 of 1 per cent to $45.5 billion while shipments declined to $44.4 billion, thus adding $1.1 billion to the backlog. Automobile production this past week was estimated at 199,300 passenger cars, compared with 197,168 last week and 197,613 a year earlier. A news blackout was clamped of- negotiations between the Lnited Auto Workers Union and General Motors. This indicated the start of serious bargaining against a Dec. 14 target date for reaching a national agreement. Steel production 1st week dipped 0.1 per cent to 2.703,000 tons from 2,707,000 tons the previous week.
