Proxmire, chairman of the Senate-House Economic- Committee, said the law should be stricken to prevent Nixon from "becoming an economic dictator."

" MAINLY STRATEGIC Sources indicated no portion of Phase 2 will be imposed until after the 90-day freeze expires Nov. 13. - • The plan- will not carry a termination date, although the administration says it wants to return to a "free economy" as soon as possible. The reasons for this are mainly strategic. Announcing a termination date beforehand would merely postpone wage- price decisions, administration spokesmen say, and lead to an explosion of inflation'on the termination date. Although the White House indicated the President's address will cover mainly the-domestic economy, Nixon could announce his plans for ending the nation's balance-of-payment deficit He announced on Aug. -15 the dollar was being cut loose from its tie with gold and imposed a 10-per-cent surcharge on im ports.
