Economy Beyond Political Help LONDON (AP) -- The pre- liction making the rounds here that whoever wins next month's election will fail to solve Britain's problems. The Laborites and Conservative havCj tried for a dcc- Â·ide without success to arrest Britain's long postwar economic decline. Once again the same men are offering much the same policies. The Liberals and other small parties suggest new ideas,; but they come from men with no governing experience, was to be used (or, authorities said. Various coalition governments remain possible if, as in February, the British public denies a majority in Parliament to any one parly. But peacetime coalition governments in Britain havt a poor record. In short, wherever the British voter turns -- to major parties, to minor ones or to coalitions -the prospects appear less than encouraging. Politicians in all parlies agree that in the Oct. 10 election the British democratic system could be on trial. Part of tho problem is beyond Britain. All parlies cite Britain's an- nual inflation rate of 10.0 per cut as the top issue in the campaign. Yel inflation is a worldwide problem amd other countries have had lillle more sir.cccss than Britain in slowing down soaring living costs. As an island which imports half its food, Britain must trade profitably with the outside world to live. Yet the annual trade dcficil is now running lo some $10 billion, which ami only force living standards down. ' At least a third of that loss is due to the quadrupling of Aral] oil prices. Britain must imnorl 80 per cent of its fuel until s'orth Sea oil starts flowing in the 1980s. Not all problems, of course, are beyond Britain's control. 3ul some have been left beyond lti! politicians In the past decade. Neither Labor nor the Conservatives were able lo inlcr- vcne lo control ttic strikes ot British unions or tlie decisions of British managements which lost markets and led lo the collapse of household names liko Rolls-Uoyce. Now inflation is the biggest problem.

Ford Foundation To Cut Granis NEW YORK (AP) -- A Ford Foundation spokesman says inflation and a depressed securities market may force the nation's wealthiest philanthropic organization to cut annual grants as much as 50 per cent. The spokesman said on Sunday that the organization's assets have plummeted from $3 billion to $2 billion in market value during the past year. McGeorge Bundy, president of the foundation, said that without a reduction in grants the foundation may have to dissolve by distributing its assets. Such a dissolution proposal was rejected by the foundation's trustees seven years ago. The trustees are expected to face a proposal to reduce the $202-million annual budget at their quarterly meeting here this week. If approved, the cuts would not take effect within a year and all current commitments would be honored, according lo the spokesman. But he added that a final deision on cuts or dissolution may not be made until next spring. Want Answers To Problems?
