By JOHN CUN1FF NEW YORK (AP) - Presi- ent Gerald Ford took what is idely viewed as tough, firm clion in criticizing General Colors for raising ils price oughly 10 per cent. But firm s it was, it was loo weak. Jawboning, while probably oE ome value in restraining price icrcases, simply cannot' over- 'helm the facts, and thg under- ying fact, according to GM, is ml expenses have been rising, ecessitating higher prices. Neither can jawboning in- alidate the rules of economics, n wishing thai other aiitomo- ve manufacturers decline to ollow GM's example, the Pres- denl may, in effect, be asking hem to accept smaller returns n investments and sales. For any company willingly to ccept such a situation is to ommit a breach oE faith with lockholders, risk. a decline in ability to attract capita' vith which to stay alive, anc therwise endanger its com ictitive position. But, wilh inflation threat ning to become even ' worse lie President probably hat ittle choice but to speak out He could do little else, even hough he has declared: in lation to be the nation's pri nary problem. NEXT MOVE The next moves, since th resident probably has no olh ers at the time, appear to b eft up to the automotive com panics. GM can resist, or it can cu ack its increases.Jfor .which i conceivably rnadeSan^alloxv ance. The olher-rn'a.rjufaet'urer caii raise their,prices'by '10 pc cent also, or they can 'seal them down. The most unlikely course However, would be. for GM rescind its increase and fo Chrysler, in the national iulei est, to forego any price change they might have considered. This still would leave Ford which announced several week ago that average -retail price would rise more than $400 ove 1974 models, also to considi whether it would^ -retain or re cind its increases?'" ' For these events to occu there .Avould have'to be a tot committment tothe President ability to turn back the tide inflation. . ..' When increases like GM's ar announced, it is all but impo sible for the administratio uickly to ascertain it they are stifled. Without any automat- probing machinery, it can nly jawbone wilh dubious ef- ct. It is for this reason the Presi- ent has accepted a Democrat- proposal for a summit con- erence o n - t h e economy 'and ther domestic affairs, and for gisjatifin to create a new Cost f Living Council. Armed with facts, he can ounter the moves of big busi- ess and big labor, which al- ·ays are armed with batteries f statistics "proving" their ase. Without similar atnmuni- 1011, the President's pleas are elatively ineffective. Billingiley Trial Sat MORRILTON, Ark. AP) -Calvin E.
