' He made the statement on Tuesday as Congress was com- pTeting action on his request for legislation to re-establish a wage and price monitoring agency. The new agency would depend on investigation and disclosure of increases that threaten lo feed inflation. It would have no authority to impose controls. "I will do my best to see that the new price and wage monitoring agency works efteclively to combat inflation," Ford said. ·* "There will be no mandatory wage and price controls." I The President added that he \Vanted to get this message to labor and business leaders so they can act accordingly. '.· Ford also moved to set up a steering committee to prepare tor an economic summit conference scheduled for late September or early October. He has promised to preside a.t the economic summit, which also would lives from ment, labor groups. include representa- Congress, managc- and consumer The bill setting up a Council on Wage ,ind Price Stabilily, in effect a revival of the old Cost of Living Council, was the first specific legislation Ford asked "yr. The House took the final action approving it on Tuesday, 360-27. The Seriate already passed the bill. While many congressmen, es pecially Democrats, have publicly expressed skepticism about the efficacy of an agency, .without mandatory control powers, the overwhelming inclination was to give the new President's proposal a chance. The council is to have eight full and four advisory members, all named by the Presi-. dent, who also designates the chairman. It is to analyze industrial capacity, demand and supply, to seek better data on which wages and prices are based, to obtain reports on wages, costs, prices and related matters, and to review government programs to see how they may be contributing to inflation. The council is to encourage productivity improvemnts and encourage wage and price restraint. It is authorized to conduct public hearings.

Housrng Authority Approves Year's Operating Budget An operating budget of 125.674 for the new fiscal year which begins October 1 was approved today by the Fayetteville Housing Aulhority. The operating budget includes revenues of $100,906 from the 200 unit housing rentals and a eficit of $24,810. Tlie commissioners with all members present except Carl Whillock, chairman were in- ormed by direcor Robert Dugan that a supplemental re- uest for the deficit can be lade to Housing and Urban Development later. He explained the deficit is primarily caused by rising expenses chiefly utilities and expenses inherent n the High Rise.'B'ore example ic said security service for the High Rise is $12,000 per year and the elevator maintenance contrace $6,000 annually. He explained the deficit is being whittled down as much as jossibie. A 100 per cent occupancy is maintained in the High. Rise anc the west side units' but vacancies routinely occur in the east side housing units. Presently here are eight units vacant anc at least five vacant most of the time Dugan said. He also noted hat the average rent is $40 an increase over past years. Commissioner, Roy Clinton expressed concern about the appearance of the cast side unit and urged that serious consideration be given to improving the situation. "I know that the majority .of blacks living in the area are properly owners and ;ake care of their homes, and [ realize the condition of the lousing unit distresses them, lie said. Dugan explained the large number of tenants in the east housing unit are transients and that it is difficult to get permanent tenants to move into the units. Clinton also urged the re-use appraisals on the brick house at the corner of West and Meadow street be expedited in order that the proposal made by J. K. Gregory to restore and give .the property to the Girl Scouts can be acted upon in the near future. ; It was, reported that condemnation trials on 10 parcels of property will be coming up shortly on the Chancery Court docket.

' . - . - · Speaking at the annual breakfast for teachers sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, Dr. Bishop warned,, the 1 mately 300 teachers approxi and 100 Chamber members against the complacent attitude that the present, educational system is adequate.

Master of Phillips Lowers Price Of Propane LITTLE ROCK-(AP) -- Phillips Petroleum Co. has reduced the price of its propane by 3% cation level of all society- ras J.E. McClelland, Chamber resident. The educational standards once required of students will no longer do. Dr. Bishop said. He cited a need to develop new and better ways to meet the p r o b l e m s of today and tomorrow, problems ranging trom the world food shortage to.the energy crisis. Dr. Bishop also slated, his' concern at a trend to reduce educational standards to the lowest ; common 1 denominator. "This is .a type of education that is geared to the needs/of lower achievers at the expense of more "gifted students," he said. To ignore the development of excellence among those capable of excellence is to threaten-the entire concept ofv quality education, he stated. The new UA president who arrived in Fayetteville to begin duties this week declared that education must be oriented toward individual achievement and not toward-common standards for all. He referred to this as the only kind of equal' opportunity that could raise cerits a'gallon, the company said Tuesday. The reduction took effect immediately. A Phillips spokesman used the occasion to criticize new federal" regulations concerning the price of propane. He said one specific provision "is using the May 15, 1973, propane price as a base point. This is a price that has effectively been frozen since August 1972, thus reflecting a traditionally low summer price." The result, he predicted, will be that propane will be priced below its heating value com pared_\vith other fuels. "This will have the negative result , of increasing consumption and decreasing production of propane when projections indicate the supplies of this product in coming .years will not be abl eto keep up with the demand," he said.
