TAX CUT REFERRED "The inflationary problem i; so severe I would recommem that we defer any tax cut ark work lo prevent the middle income population from payinf disproportionate amount o Ihe ruinous rate of inflation. 1 he continued. "There are few initiative, coming out of Congress or the White House.

Clinton also says that anothe way to combat inflation is t repeal the Foreign Investmen Tax Credit. "This works, t enable large American corpora tions to deduct from their ta: bills to the U.S. taxes paid i foreign countries. It encourage investment abroad and thi means fewer jobs and mor money spend abroad and les at home." he said.

Dystrophy Results LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Arkansans increased their donations to. this year's Jerry Lewis Telethon for Muscular Dyslro- Phy. Last year, Arkansans gave a total of $60,000.

The entire grain surplus of the country is depleted at the worse possible time when a nationwide drought has cut back on production. The astronomical cost of grain, and rising costs of fertilizer and twine, have made the position of small producers almost impossible. We need to re-institute the g r a i n surplus program to serve as .a cushion against these extreme cycles in the market and to take into account the primary needs of the small and medium sized produers before getting into big grain deals, like the sale to Russia, or allowing the unlimited importation of cheaper foreign beef," he said. GAS PRICES Clinton also feels a pressing need to roll back the price of Jasoline. "The Nixon adminis- ration's own director, who is now leaving office, concedes the price is unwarranted. There is a 10 per cent increase in supply and no price cutback," he said. The candidate is preparing r the Democratic State Convention next week where he will make the keynote speech. The convention will be held Sept 13-14 in Hot Springs. Clinton, who got a large majority vote in the runoff elec tion, said he is not taking anyone's vote for granted. "I plan to wage a strong campaign throughout the dis trict," he said. Duster Crashes MEMPHIS, Tenn.

DETROIT (AP) - Charley athis took off his shoes last eek and was shot to death hen a friend didn't like the mell of his feet. It went " down on police ecords as a fatal shooting roinpted by "allegedly odi- erous feet." Joe Peoples, 64, tried to stop man stabbing a mongrel dog n an inner-city sidewalk. "Shut up old man, or I'll kill ou," the stranger said. An nour. later Peoples was dead, tail fed-in the back. These two cases were among 16 homicides committed in De- roit thus far in 197'!, 27 above ast year's record pace, police aid. There were 751 killings in 973, an.all-lime record in this ity of 1.5 million that lias :ome to be known as the na- ion's murder capital. , Slayings involving out-of-tow- ners have been rare, and con- ention officials say business is A Wayne Slate University study co-sponsored by the city reveals the typical killer differs ittle from his victim. The report, covering about 500 murders in 1972, shows: More than 76 per cent of murderers were male; two : thirds .of the slayings followed a quarrel with a relalive or acquaintance; 63 per cent of t h.e murders -were committed with guns, often the : inexpensive "Saturday .Night .Specials"; most of those involved on both sides of the gun were black males, with half of them single and 40 per cent unemployed. NOT UNIQUE "But these conditions are not unique to Detroit," said Dr. G. Marie Will, who made the study. "You find them all over the country.' The problems are socio-economic." Police statistics show that of the 432 homicides through July of this . year, three-quarters were committed with guns and half of the -killers knew, their victims. Why Detroit? - The most popular reasons advanced for the homicide rate -auto assembly line pressure joveriy, and narcotics -- are e!ittled by some experts. Dr. Will says Detroit, with a white-black ratio of about 50-50 differs little from Americar cities with -lower murder rates She cites dope in New Yorl factories in Pittsburgh and po 1 erfy everywhere. Dr. Emanuel Panay, a psy chiatrist who has studied vio lent death, says the answer i "simple and obvious. Guns. "In England, if you get ma at someone you choke them with your hands. The aggresso may lose his temper, but he re gains it before he kills his^ tirri." Dr. Paney said gun-buying increased sharply following the 1967 riot here in which 43 died, He feels there is an upward spiral which is unstoppable without gun control. Cold Front Rolls Across Plains And Into South By The Associated Pres A record-breaking cold front oiled across the Plains and ilunged into the South today, 'ushing heavy rains in front of Somoza Leads In Managua MANAGUA, Nicaragua (AP) -- Gen. Anastasio Somoza built up an expected overwhelming lead today in slow returns from Sunday's .presidential election. Reporting on less than JflO per cent of the etimated 700,000 votes, the national electoral office said Somoza had 60,307 to 3,080 for Edmundo Paguaga of the Conservative party. Complete returns are not expected for at least another week, but the dictator whose family lias ruled Guatemala for 40 years is expected to maintain his 20-to-l lead. Somoza, 48. a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy, succeeded his brother Luis who died in 1967. He resigned in 1S71 to comply with a constitutional provision prohibiting a president from succeeding himself but turned the government over to a triumvirate that he controlled. Paguaga was one of the triumvirate, and opponents of the regime charged that his presidential candidacy was ordered by Somoza to create a meangingless semblance of opposition. t.

MORE FOR YOUR MONEY in Calm Settles Over New Jersey NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- A elative calm settled over Newark early today after two days of disturbances that included massive demonstrations by J uerto Rican residents protest- ng alleged police brutality. Two. men were wounded by gunfire and more than a dozen other persons were injured. On Monday evening, hun dreds of demonstrators pelted City Hall with stones and shat lered windows in businesse along Broad Street, the city main thoroughfare. Fire off cials said a series^ of fires o suspicious origin broke out, an a. firebomb was thrown into a Roman Catholic convent. The violence followed by one day disorders at a Puerto Rican picnic in Branch Brook Park. Puerto Ricans charged that police used excessive force in breaking up that melee. Two men were shot at the picnic, a child was trampled by a policeman's horse, several persons were injured by thrown objects and four vehicles were burned. Authorities did not say what caused the disturbance or admit they act like human beings rather than numbers you won't have to keep repeating that lanae excuse: "People didn't a;t as anticipated." Prof. George Katona, who for years headed Ihe Survey Research Center at the University of Michigan, challenges some of the bedrock assumptions on which economic thinking rests. To illustrate, many economists believe that in times of inflation people must be encouraged to save and admonished not to spend. But, Katona says in effect, people already are motivated to do so. They need no encouragement. Not that they always do save when inflation rags* \Vhen the fear of shortages or mistrust in the dollar's value are added to the equation, people might act the very opposite. They rush to buy while they can. Katona, widely regarded as the founder of consumer surveys as they exist today, related some of his views and findings in a paper prepared for an American Psychological Association meeting in New Orleans lasl Sunday, Consumers and others do not always react in the predicted manner because of the presence of optimistic or pessimistic attitudes which have their origins in past experience, trust n government, financial condi- ion and the like. Too often, Katona suggests, economists accept the simple jroposition Ihat all there is to nflation is "an insufficient supply of goods in relation to the demand for them at existing prices." Such an attitude, he said, ignores a mass of relevant material on how people perceive tha supply-demand ratio. Price controls, for example, are viewed by Kalona as psychological as much as legal. During World War II and in 1971-73, he said, it was shown that price controls work only if people cooperate with them. "Governments are powerless lo entorce controls if very many businessmen and con- umers disregard them ... At the present time the psy- hoiogical climate creates some erious obstacles to dealing vith inflation, Kalona says. He maintains "there prevails a ack of trust in · government," vhicli lowers expectations of overcoming prices. Fighting inflation, he concludes, "calls for creating conditions in which optimistic and conlident attitudes arise rather than expectations of rapidly rising prices." who fired the shots.

(AP) -- A contract has been awarded to lharles Hampton of Jefferson,, Tex., to build and lease a new 1 }ost office at Williford in Sharp bounty. James Curtis, manager of the VIemphis Postal District, said :he Texas builder offered the .owest of four bids. The planned building is to contain 1,016 square feet of interior floor space and is lo be leased to ehe U.S. Postal Service for a basic period of 10 years, with options on 20 additional years. The postal service controls a site at the intersection of Arkansas 58 south and Arkansas 58 east. The contract calls for completion of the building in April 1975. had said early Monday evening, "The most important thing is to have the people of Newark understand that we have a critical situation on the streets." He asked residents of this city of 400,000 to stay indoors. About 10 per cent of Newark's population is Spanish- speaking. Approximately 50 per cent of the population is black. A police spokesman said reports of snipers firing on officers or firemen "are not at all Synthetic Oil Sates Increase DETROIT (AP) A small petroleum firm is promoting a new "super" synthetic motor oil for autos it says can last up to 10 times longer .than conventional lubricating oil. Pacer Petroleum Co., of Houston, Tex.," says its sales are "growing like weeds." But Detroit's Big Three auto makers say they aren't ready for an oil change. They are making tests of their own, however. And they are interested. Pacer's Sol Levy says cars using the firm's EON E-ll syn- detic oil can go 40,000 miles jetween oil changes. U.S. auto m a k e r s recommend conventional oil changes every 3,000 to 6,000 miles.

However, E-ll sells for $5 a quart, compared with less than 51 a quart for conventional oil. But Levy says in the long run it is less expensive because E-ll users buy one-tenth as many quarts over 40,000 miles of driving. Outside the auto industry, synthetic oils are not new. Germany developed them during World War II and the aircraft industry ha s used them for years. About a half dozen companies market such oils. Pacer is the first to offer the product nationwide for auto owners. Levy estimated more than 250,000 cars now use the product, and the company expects $5 million in sales this year. "It's just unbelieveable tha way it's taken off," he said. Pacer is advertising heavily n Detroit, a market which can make or break a new auto product. Ads plug E-ll as the oil used in Houston police cars and boast the oil "never needs to be changed."
