REPUBLIC 22 The Arizona RepwWic " DENNIS THE MENACE By Hmk Ketchnm ~t» Wefl.j Nov. S, 1969 O Board slaps Nixon's plan lor consumer By JOHN D.MORRIS New York times Service WASHINGTON - Major elements of President Nixon's consumer protection program were denounced as "inade- «uate and unconstructive" yesterday by the board of di- r^ctprs of the Consumer Federation of America. TTie board termed the President's consumer message, sent to Congress last Wednesday, "a retreat" from earlier positions taken by Nixon and his special assistant for consumer affairs, Virginia H. Knauer. The board wa* critical particularly of restrictive provisions of class action legislation proposed by the President with the avowed purpose of opening the federal courts to suits by groups of consumers against fraud and deception in the market place. : The federation consists of 140 labor, cooperative and consumer - oriented organizations throughout the country. It has 38 directors. The directors, in a statement, expressed support for expansion of the Federal Trade Commission's jurisdiction and some other relatively minor features of the President's program. "Beyond that," they said, "the President's message is inadequate and unconstructive. By proposing structural rearrangement, the President would create the appearance of progress. The proposed class action legislation would allow consumers to band together and sue for damages only after the Justice Department had prosecuted successfully a merchant or manufacturer for 1 of 11 specified types of fraud or deception. Electoral reform bill stalled in Senate "You call this stuff JUNK? I think It's the best furnished room in the house!" Chrysler recalls 754 cars DETROIT (AP) - Chrysler Corp. yesterday reported the recall of 754 1970-model passenger cars "for inspection and replacement, if required, of inadequately welded wheels." In addition, Chrysler said 828 Dodge trucks, including some 1970 models, are being recalled for inspection and replacement, where needed, of nuts and bolts. The 1970 passenger cars involved are Plymouth Belve- deres and Barracudas and Dodge Coronets and Challengers. In one truck campaign 522 Dodge 1968 and 1969 heavy duty, tandem axle models are being recalled for inspection and correction, if necessary, of equalizer beam attaching bolts. In another, 286 Dodge 1970 model D2GO, D300 and W200 trucks are being recalled for inspection of master cylinder attaching bolts. New York Times Service WASHINGTON - The proposal to substitute direct popular election for electoral college choice of the president appears to be stalled in the Senate Judiciary Committee until at least early 1970. Sen. James »0. Eastland of Mississippi, the committee chairman, has notified its members that electoral reform, pending on the committee calendar since early September, has now been postponed indefinitely. It has been generally agreed that Judiciary would not take up direct election and the alternative reforni amendments until the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Clement F, Haynsworth had been disposed of. That nomination will not reach the Senate floor for another week, or more likely two, and is expected to require at least a week of debate. That would leave little more than a month in which the Senate must deal with tax reform and a number of essential appropriation bills be<< fore adjourning for 1969. The Senate delay made it even more unlikely that the direct election system, if given final congressional approval and submitted to the states for ratification, could go into effect in time for the 1972 presidential election. The version of the constitutional amendment approved by the House in mid- September provides that the necessary three-quarters of the state legislatures must ratify the electoral reform plan by Jan. 21,1971, for it to become effective the following year. Sen. Birch Bayh, D-Ind.. who is the chief sponsor of direct election, wants to change this date in the Senate bill to April or May 1, to allow more time for ratification, but it is not yet clear whether the House will agree to such a move. Every week of 1970 that the Senate delays in taking up electoral reform will reduce the amount of time available before the ratification dead- line for application to the 1972 election. President. Nixon, in a message to Congress last month, urged for the first time specifically that the Senate act on direct election before the end of the year. "This must be done," the President declared, "if we are to have this needed reform amended to the constitution in time for the presidential election of 1972." -Advertisement- HOW TO DO MORE WITH LESS FATIGUE * Why a catnap can be better than 3 hours night steep. * Why active relaxation can be better than passive. * How extravagance can tire you out. * Why you may be going to bed too early!
