Noting price increases have reached the point where "th: law of supply and demand i: back into play," G. J. Morri son, market vice president o Phillips Petroleum Co. add-=J "I doubt we'll ever have low cost energy again, or that i will cost 75 cents to $1 for ; gallon of gasoline."

Despite ome bad experiences with con- rols, the idea of voluntary wage nd price restraints continues 3 be entertained in business nd government circles as a fay of combating inflation. Apparently little support, icwever, exists for credit con- rols, even though it is in the orrowing area that the great st strains currently are being iade on the economic system. In testimony this week before Police Wives Object To Co-Ed Patrols CHICAGO (AP) - Wives on't like their police hubbies, icing paired off- with police vomen in .midnight patrol car issignments. But the Chicago Police Department is trying to give the wives a hard sell. Top brass invited the wives Vednesday to see a film about coed patrols In New York City and tough cops told the 'wives hat women police are every bi as good as men in rugged situations. The brass claimed the 'ilm showed how well the coec patrols have worked. . A police chaplain reasonei ivith the wives that when a man and woman patrol togeth er "they aren't going to a drive-in movie." Most o f , the wives still thinl heir husbands may'be Jet down in a life-ancWeath situation, 6r that the long- hours coed patro officers, spend together .may pose a threat to t h e i r mar riages. . The, wives- spoke their pieci but refused to be identified. Let's be perfectly realistic,' one said. "Either the man i oing to have to be. half deac or some kind of King Kong ir'o man, and the woman is goin So have to be like a wall--o else something is going to hap pen." Another agreed: "Five day a week, eight hours a day, the same car--my husband' partner would know him 'Belle than'I do." . ' One wife said she is prett good on a shooting range "but don't know how I'd do if I ha to kill a guy, if I was a poliei woman and'had to face the re; thing. le House ommittee, Ways and Mean! the man most in Colson Suspended From Law Practice BOSTON Colson, a (AP) - Charles W former presidenlia uential in determining the na on's credit policy, Arthur F ing urns, suggested the reimposi the .on of voluntary wage-pric o n t r o Is . Credit controls weren't discussed. The irony of this is twofold: First, many critics of eco- omic policy feel that credit re- traint by price alone, that is, y permitting interest rates to ise, has failed. As rates rose, emand failed to diminish. Second, a law already is on he books that would permit the r ederal Reserve, of which Jurns is · chairman, to enforce credit controls or allocate loans by a system other than price. Activation of the. law would be automatic if the. President were to determine it was "necessary or appropriate for the mrpose of preventing or con- rollir/g inflation generated by extension of credit in excessive olume The authority is contained in 'ublic Law 91-515, signed Dec. 13, 1989, permitting the President to regulate and control ny or all extensions of credit. In commenting on the '-situation, the brokerage house of Paine, Webber, Jackson Cur- 'is claims that credit allocation aide convicted of obstructing justice, has been suspended by the state Supreme Judicia Court from practicing law in Massachusetts. Colson is serving a 1 to year sentence after pleadin guilty to a charge of obstruc sycMatrlst. . The Massachusetts.Bar Asso- lation asked last week that Colson be disbarred. Colson, a Boston native, earned-his original license to practice law m aassachusetts. He already has been disbarred in Washington, D.C., where he was convicted. justice in the break-in a office of Daniel Ellsberg The TIMES \t On Top erf The New* Seven Day* a Week via 1 cost; hasn't "worked. The reason, it adds, is clear: "In- ;erest rates have not reached a evel whereby the borrower has incurred any real cost." The payment by a- corporation of 10 per cent a year on a bond issue might'appear to 'costly, the broker explains, but that's only if you overlook :he fact that nearly one-half of that is written off'by the 48 per cent corporate tax rate: The remainder is likely to disappear in inflation. That is, the corporate borrower will be paying back in cheaper dollars. Assume a 5 per cent annual inflation rate and the entire cost is dissipated. In the view of some financial men, consideration of credit controls now may have become an academic rather than a practical 'exercise. They feel that signs o f ' lessening credit demand soon will appear BEFORE YOU JUPiACE YOUR OLD HEATING SYSTEM...OR ADD CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING Ask about the amazing General Electric WEATHERTRON HEAT PUMP ONE System COOLS HEATS your entire home quietly, efficiently, dependably Switches from heating to cooling automatically, as required.
