The Presient arranged a late morning session in the Cabinet Room to sign the Council on Wage and Price Stability Act which won congressional passage within two w e e k s of 'Ford's request. The new task force is to expose abuses in wages and prices. But unlike the original council established in 1071 by former President Nixon, it cannot impose ceilings. ..The council will gather information on causes of inflation, and will "jawbone" -- or try to persuade ...... unions and businesses to take no action t h a t would fuel spiraling costs. The bill sets up a staff of about 25 at a cost of SI million. The council will include Roy L. Ash, director of the Office of Management and Budget, and Kenneth Rush, presidential economic counselor. Representatives of 11 million elderly Americans told Ford in a face- lo-face meeting in the White House on Friday that inflation is the "No. 1 terror for · older people.'

Mrs. Mary Mullen, 74, of La- *una Beach, Calif., president of .he National Association of Retired Teachers, said Ford 'seemed sincere In making every effort to try to solve some of -the problems" of senior citizens, and promised to keep his door open to them. The delegation of- elderly Americans jokingly presented Ford, 61, with a gold-encased magnifying glass. Coincidentally, less than an hour later, the near-sighted President was measured for contact lenses. In other developments Friday: --Ford told Syrian Foreign Minister Abel Halim Khaddam that he hopes to strengthen diplomatic l i e s between the two nations and raised the possibility of U.S. economic assist ance to the Arab nation. --Ford told the farm family of the year, Mr. and Mrs. Julian Fowler, who live near Fairbanks, that he hoped to visit Alaska before the end of the year. The presidential trip would presumably be part of a previously . announced journey to Japan. Food Price Rise Revised For Remainder Of Year that inflation is Public- Enemy No. 1, Ash told a Wall Street luncheon in New York the new administration would "cool the , fevers of inflation even if it generates more unemployment than we'd like." On a day that the stock market tumbled to a four-year low, -Ash emphasized Ford's deter' ruination to avoid wage-price controls or even stand-by authority for their reintroduclion. Presidential Press Secretary Jerald F. terHorst also repeated that Ford is "unalterably opposed" to controls. Executive Director Jack Os- sofsky. 40, of the National Council on Aging quoted Ford as saying that he is reviewing problems of the nation's aged. WASHINGTON (AP) -- A load of groceries that cost $17.24 two years ago probably will cost $23 or more by the end of the year, Agriculture Department economists arc saying. By last month, one index showed, the hypothetical batch of groceries already cost $22.58. " " note, for on Friday That unpleasant food buyers came when official predictions of the final 1974 average food prices were revised upward, to about 15 per cent above the 1973 average. Last year's increase in the retail average, the highest since World War II, was 14.5 per cent. For the last nine months, the department had been prdicting a 1974 rise of "probably 12 per ctnt" in the average, with most of the boost coming before June. Friday's new analysis by the Outlook and Situation Board, based on mid-August supply, demand and price assessments. gave a range of 13 to 17 per cent for the year. The report said that insteac of remaining steady during the third quarter and declining slightly in the fall, prices for major farm goods hit by unfa vorable weather over much o] ;he nation "are now expectcc :p rise about 3 per cent during the third quarter and a little more in the fourth quarter." The key to the range is the weather, from the heavy spring rains to the Midwest's mid summer drought. The retail price hikes will be closer to 17 pei' cent if crop production falls much more o if demand from consumers increases. The department also releases Friday its July figures for the Economic Researcli Sorvic markclbasket survey, showinj the first rise in prices paid t farmers and the first drop i retailers' and wholesalers share of the grocery shopper' dollar since February.

By The Associated Press The Greek Cypriot president of Cyprus today threatened Turkey with guerrilla war against its invasion troops if a solution to the Cyprus crisis is not forthcoming. Turkey warned that such a campaign would create "a dangerous and grave situation" and "delay the demilitarization of the island and peace."

Kissinger and White House chief of stale Alexander M. Haig. The newspaper quoted one source as saying the one concern was Nixon's past behavior "during violent military action." When Navy warships mined Haiphong Harbor in 1972, the Globe's source said, Nixon cultivated the image of a man "who might do anything." "If the Russians thought he might do anything, that was fine with him," the Globe source said. The sources said the action was merely normal contingency planning "in the event of im probable circumstances." "There was never the slightest indication from within or without the military establishment of any thought of involvement by the military in JCONTINtTED ON P «GE TWO) lion to the government for tho Cyprus cause.
