I & 8 : Nixon move buys time, politically him Qualified approval WASHINGTON (AP) - President Nixon’s economic blockbuster buys political time and will enable him to run in 1972 on a record of having moved firmly to the defense of the nation’s economy. If the President’s eight-point plan works, the results should certainly be known before the November 1972 balloting. The economy issue could be defused entirely. “If it doesn’t work—well, the old policy wasn’t working, either, and the new plan at least tries out some of the steps Nixon critics have been advocating. Further, the actions announced Sunday start a new time cycle during which the administration can say, “Let’s see what happens” without it sounding as repetitive as the optimistic forecasts the White House has turned out for months. Democrats have made no secret of their attempts to force the economic issue to the forefront for 1972. Even so loyal a Nixon troop as Senate Republi can Leader Hugh Scott said Saturday that if Nixon is to win re-election, “He’ll have to win the fight against inflation.” Demands for wage-price controls have grown, first from Democrats, then from Federal Reserve Chairman Arthur Burns and most recently from some Senate Republicans. Against this background, Congress scheduled hearings for October on the question of a wage-price board and Nixon agreed the administration would participate. Now, by freezing wages, prices and rents for 90 days, he has pre-empted those hearings, which likely would have produced new cries that the administration was not doing enough to stop inflation. Even the early reaction to Nixon’s economic speech showed a new divergence in the Nixon opposition. Sen. William Proxmire, D- Wis., chairman of the Joint Economic Committee and frequent critic of Nixon economic policies, said he supports the program, although he said elements are overdue and may not go far enough. But Sen. George McGovern, D-S.D., the only announced seeker of the Democratic presidential nomination, called the program “economic madness” and said Nixon “has no faith in our workers, in our business and in the free enterprise system.” As with his China initiatives, Nixon has embarked on a course of action which, if it works, should be worth plenty of votes. However, even total success won’t make every voter happy. Persons who travel abroad, for example, aren’t likely to applaud having to pay more for accomodations and services overseas. Federal workers who don’t get pay raises—or even lose their jobs—won’t be happy, either. But buyers of new domestic •cars, if they save $200 as the President wants, and veterans who trace new jobs to new tax incentives, should like what they’re getting. I By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS President Nixon’s proposals for improving the economy have won qualified approval from a number of business and labor leaders, but some said the plans do not go far enough. The heads of two of the Big Three automakers praised the President’s move but an executive of a textile manufacturers group saicl the proposals “just won’t get the job done.” No comment was immediately available from the National Association of Manufacturers. An AFL-CIO spokesman said the labor organization probably would comment on the moves later today. AFL-CIO President George Meany has previously endorsed wage and price controls is applied equitably across the board. “I am pleased with the President’s approach to these problems which have a bearing on all business,” said James M Roche, chairman of General Motors Corp. “He has taken the initiative in identifying some of these problems and coming to grips with them.” He said the President’s proposal for repeal of the 7 per cent automobile excise tax was a “good step in the right direction and will help make our cars more competitive with the foreign imports.” Roche said removing the excise tax will trim about $190 off the price of GM’s new car— with the savings going into the pocket of the consumer. Ogilvie hopes state pay hikes won t be canceled out CHICAGO (AP) — Gov. Richard B. Ogilvie said today he hopes President Nixon’s wage- price freeze will not rule out scheduled pay increase Sept. 1 for Illinois state employes. Ogilvie told a news conference he is otherwise “pleased with what he (Nixon) is trying to do and optimistic that it will be helpful to this state.” The President announced Sunday that he is freezing all prices, wages and rents for at least 90 days, that the United About Town KSB Hospital Aug. 14 Admitted: George Steder, Miss Nancy Eaton.

Residents to view comedy Dixon State School men and women will view a musical version of George Bernard Shaw’s comedy, “Androcles and the Lion,” on Sept. 5, by State 212, a college summer stock group from Spring Valley. The cast and crew of approximately 15 will bring their own portable set, ligfiTs, costumes, and guitars to DSS’s Murray Hall, at 2 p.m. Kate Cahill, executive board member of Stage 212, said the story of the comedy goes back to a Roman legend about a grateful lion meeting a slave in the arena who had once extracted a thorn from the lion’s foot. Miss Cahill came to DSS last year with a group of students from La Salle-Peru and was struck by the residents’ pleasure in having visitors. “My dream, and that of all involved in this production, is to share our knowledge and love of theatre with those who have little chance to be entertained,” she said. Articulate birds SOUTHPORT, England (UPI) —Police are touring Southport’s pet shops to strike up conversations with mynah birds. They are trying to find Popeye, Joe, Mich, Tony, Fred and Charlie—mynahs stolen from a Southport park last week. Six of them can reveal their identities by saying a few words. “Charlie Walls, for instance, was given to us by a man from Wigan, and he still has a strong Wigan accent. Popeye shouts for grandad, calls Bingo and asks if anyone is at the door. “Joe admits that he’s a bad boy and Fred does the music hall policeman’s ’ello, ’ello, ’ello.” Square landowners HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, England (UPI)— The local nudist club had the idea of raising money for charity by having four sky-divers jump from 10,000 feet, wearing boots, parachutes—and nothing else. Trouble is, the club said Thursday, they can’t find any landowners who will let them drop onto their property. Nothing new in Danhaus case No new progress in the investigation into the murder of 18-year-old Deborah Danhaus of Amboy is reported today by Lee County Sheriff John Quest. Sheriff Quest said he and Illinois State Police Detective Larry Dowdy turned up nothing new Thursday after they questioned an ex-boyfriend of Miss Danhaus. The law enforcement officials flew to Kentucky to question the former boyfriend in the hope he might reveal information about the girl’s background which could help in the investigation. Friday, Dr. Cesare Manetti, a Rockford pathologist, said he had completed all tests on the body and indicated Lee County officials had the report. This morning, Lee County Coroner Robert Preston denied knowledge of a report that would determine exact time of death. Dr. Manetti performed an autopsy on Miss Danhaus’s body August 8 and said then that further tests would be required to determine exact time of death. Miss Danhaus was reported missing for five days before her body was found at the edge of Morgan Road, two miles west of Amboy. Sheriff Quest indicated he too has not seen a final autopsy report. A coroner’s inquest August 9 determined that strangulation was the cause of death. Miss Danhaus was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Danhaus of 218 S. Mason Ave., Amboy.
