Companies Face Record Keeping Of Complaints WASHINGTON AP) -- A new government policy may make it easier for an injured consumer to sue and recover damages from the manufacturer of a faulty product. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which has power over virtually everything in your house, soon will propose a requirement that companies save customer safety complaints 'for at least five years. This includes, the commission says in a hot-yet-publishec document, "any oral or written communication, regardless of the truth of the allegations ... concerning a death, illness or injury or potential death, illness or injury related to a consumer product." The record-keeping requirement would be imposed on an estimated 200,000 manufacturers, as well as importers, private labelers and distributors. Under the soon-to-be proposed rule, companies would have to make available for inspection by a commission investigator all complaints, responses, technical studies and tests, and a boxscore of lawsuits related to the problem. Violators could be subjected to civil and criminal penalties. The law creating the commission, winch began operations in May 1973, gave it regulatory authority over everything found around the house or school except motor vehicles, boats, tobacco, inseclicides, food, drugs and cosmetics.

But it was expected soor since the first announcemeni said the Soyuz was launched into the same orbit as the space lab.

Hughes is retir- ng from his Senate post to devote his time to religious work. Those attending today include cabinet members, two White House physicians and the President's press secretary, Jerald F. terHorst. After early morning staff meetings and a visit from a diplomat delivering a message 'rom Romanian Communist eader Nicolae Ceausescu, Ford turns his attention again to advance planning for the economic summit meeting now set for Sept. 27-28 in Washington. Ford said on Monday he wants the conference of the best brains in the country from all segments of the economy to consider "new and realistic" anti-inflation measures. The President wants "-to find "the best way to ·go," said the executive director of the conference, William L. Seidman, a Grand Rapids, Mich., 'accountant and friend .of the President. Some 600 to 700 delegates are expected to be invited to participate. Ford will be chairman of the two-day summit meeting and will devote as much time to the sessions as he can, terHorst said. . In advance of the main conference, tho White House also announced a series of nine mini-summits to be held Sept. 5-20 with experts from a variety of fields, ranging from agriculture to health and banking. Some of the sessions will be leld outside of Washington. Aides said the idea is to give the President new ideas on what should be done to improve the economy. They warned that it is "unrealistic to think the President is going to achieve miracles." But Seidman said the President "will move with all due speed" to implement worthwhile ideas stemming from the Lhink-fank sessions. "Believe me the last thing he wants is cosmetic treatment of this matter," Seidman said. Ford also is moving quickly to get under way a new Wage and Price Stabilization Council that will monitor labor and management to focus attention on excessivS wage and price. Increases. TerHorst said Ford will name a director and members of the council in a day or two. It could come in Ford's news conference, a lull-scale televised session scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.

Nixon's presidency to make sure that no orders were given to military units outside the normal chain of command. "I have been assured that no measures of this nature were actually undertaken," Ford said in a statement. Record Earnings DEWITT, Ark.
