SLAUGHTER BULLS: Yield API Head Sees Gas Prices Leveling Off DETROIT (AP) -- The president of the American Petroleum Institute foresees no new oil embargo by the Arab nations this winter and says rising gasoline prices in this country have leveled off. But Frank Ikard cautioned at a news conference on Tuesday that "all the ingredients that make up a crisis are still there." Ikard, here to attend the W o r l d Energy Conference which has attracted some 3,500 delegates from 85 nations, said: "We're dependent for about 40 per cent of our oil from foreign sources. And we don't know what the weather holds in store for U5. "We are unquestionably going to have some interuptions in natural gas supplies in the Midwest and some portions of the East." He said these would affect mainly industrial users. He estimated that U.S. reserves of home heating oil and gasoline generally are about 10 per cent higher than they were a year ago. He said he does not expect a new oil embargo to develop, but if one is imposed the nation is in better shape to cope with it now than it was last year. "I think the price of gasoline lias pretty well leveled oft." Ikard said in response to a question. "I think you will see Niteroi, says it has 200,000 negative files among a listing o[ 500,000 installment buying customers. In Sao Paulo, Brazil's biggest and richest city, the Credit Bu reau says its negative respon ses to merchants' credi queries totaled 430,000 in the first six months of 1974--u[ from 331,000 in the first half o 1973. Brazilian store owners ex pressed concern about the trend in a recent national meet ing here. "The increase in negatives is a result of the difficulties the people have in meeting their obligations," said Oscar Gimenez, coordinator of the conference. "The bad payer also exists to a large extent because of the ease of buying with credit, without planning the possibilities of paying." Most Brazilian clothing, appliance, variety and department stores all advertise their prices broken down into monthly installments. About 70 per cent of all sales by such stores are made on credit. ' Gimenez said this publicity often makes credit terms look easy, even to low-income shoppers. But he said when the buyer has to choose between meeting an installment and buying food, the installment goes unpaid. Additionally, the Store Owners' Club of Rio reported that total retail sales in August were down nearly 10 per cent from August of the previous year. Grade 1-2 1100-1895 Ibs. $28-$30.

(AP) -Former President Richard M. Nixon is responding well to treatment of the painful phlebitis in his left leg, his physician reports. Dr. John C. Lungren told newsmen on Tuesday in a written report on Nixon's condition that "anti-coagulation therapy was begun after Mr. Nixon's arrival at the hospital Monday afternoon and so far he has responded well." Lungren has refused to talk personally to newsmen, saying he will issue written reports daily at noon. He said each report will be approved by the former president. Lungren has said Nixon will be hospitalized for at least seven days. Anti-coagulant drugs usually laken by intravenous injection, are being used in an attempt to dissolve two blood clots in Nixon's left thigh. Such treatment also is designed to prevent the clots from breaking loose and moving through the blood stream to the lungs or heart, where they could cause death.
