The 24-member organization, made up of the world's most active trading nations, didn't spare the details: inflation at "very high rates," growth pro spects "uncertain," big oil payments deficits, rising labor costs. In short, a grim outlook from this, the Organization for Eco nomic Cooperation and Development, formed in 1960 to seek for its members the. highest sustainable growth and employ ment, rising living standards and financial stability. The brightest aspect of the outlook appeared to be for commodity prices, with the OECD forecasting a "marked improvement" by the end of the year. Even this good news was followed by a-"however." Labor costs, the forecaster stated, "will almost certainly cause increasing pressure on the price level as wage earners seek to re-establish former iving standards and strive for Aging Ex-Con Misses Click Of Door Locks SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Wesley Robert Wells is-living n mansions these days, but he can't get used to sleeping with he doors unlocked. For 36 years he never had hat problem. His homes carried names like San. Quentin, Vacaville, and death row.' ' But Wells, 65, changed his address July 2 after the-state Carole board decided that the convict no longer was a threat .0 society. He was released to .he custody of the Delancey Street Foundation^ a self-help group for addicts and former prisoners. Wells now lives in the former Russian consulate, one ; of, two Delancey Street mansions in posh Pacific Heights. 'His private bathroom is larger and better outfitted - that the cell where he spent, four years as a condemned man. He dines nearby in the former Egyptian consulate."It's hard'to get used to going to sleep with the door unlocked," said the graying ex- convict. "The whole doggone world is new to me." at least some growth in real earnings." Therefore, the statement continues, it is expected that "ir most member countries wage pressure will produce a sub stantially higher rise in unil labor costs than in 1973." Economics, transportation and ashion changes are constant ources of wonderment to a man who has been in institu- ions since the age of 10. 'It cost us 50 cents for an : · cream cone," he com- lalhed. "Gave a dollar for two ce cream cones, .and=didn't get no money back." Wells was; equally dismayed hat the parking meter had to be fed while they, ate their ice cream. "I was wondering if we'd have to pay for the air we breathe," he said. "Wearing clothes is different. Autos and streetcars bug me. The way they drive - everything is different," he added. After his mother died'and-his sisters brought him to Los An- _eles. Wells entered a.juvenile tiall in 1919..He went from one California Youth Authority ,fa cility to another until, at 19, he was convicted' of receiving stolen goods.: · ' . - · ' · ' · · "That's whe nl first went to San Quentin," he said. "I wenl in in 1926 and came out in 1941 Then back in in 1942 on a stolen car. charge in Los Angeles." Behind bars, he was convic ted of manslaughter in the 1932 slaying of another inmate during a fight. In .1947,.he was sentenced to.death :for hurling a cuspidor at a guard,.breaking his jaw. In California, a lifer convictec of assault oh a 'prisoner or guard would go to death, row. Wells left Vacaville in grand tyle. He ordered a guard to open a gate and then was swept way in a Rolls-Royce. A Cadilac followed as a backup car. Delancey Street had rented he cars for the occasion. "I'm older, wiser and better self-on rolled," Wells told newsmen vit ness ing his departure. As he did in .prison, Well: spends much of his time now playing chess, reading and lis tening to a collection of Harry James records on .a stereo se liven to him while he was a Vacaville. · But he says, "I'll be doing my share of work, too.
