Van Dalsem's proposal won the endorsement of a subcommittee of the interim committee Thursday. That proposal is aimed at reforming primary election filing fees by having an optional $1 checkoff on state income tax returns. Van Dalsem would have the state match dollar-for-dollar the amount collected. The money would be distributed to the counties via turnback funds and '. would be used to help finance ; party primaries.

Randall's alternative method for getting on the ballot would be for a candidate to collect signatures on a petition equal to 2 per cent of the votes cast for governor in the last election.

Harvard economist Otto Ekstein was blunt about the fu,ure: "The economy will suffer a recession, which seems to be :he price we have to pay to jring inflation under control." Both Albert and Mansfield questioned whether Ford's proposed cuts in the federal budget would have much impact on inflation. "At best," Mansfield said, 'the federal budget is only a fraction of the answer." The -President puffed on his pipe as he listened to the Democratic congressional leaders blend criticism of his policies with suggestions for change. In his opening remarks, Ford indicated he was moving toward tax cuts for the poor, who he said had been hit hardest by inflation. "This administration will seek to ensure that burdens are distributed equally," he said. Noting the presence of o servers from other nations, Ford also said inflation is an international problem' and the United States will "consult with friends abroad as we move to c o m b a t a n international threat." The President confirmed what many observers had expected -- that he made a significant start in preparing an anti-inflation program even in advance of the summit. "We are already narrowing some of the options to those which would appear most effective and command widest support," he said. Ford said the summit, like a dozen preliminary conferences this month, "is wide open." He continued: "All views and opinions are invited. This administration's commitment to visible and responsive government remains intact. I might not like everything I hear. But it is my solemn duty as President of the United States to give fair consideration to all views and to carefully weigh the possible courses of action.". Restating a caution against expectation of "quick or easy solutions," Ford said: "No miracle cure has emerged from the pre-conference meetings. Inflation is i problem which we must dea w i t h patiently and persistently. . . . It will require sacrifice and common effort. It will require discipline, but we will win." Ford said the summit was "in the tradition of the American town hall" and representec a joint executive-legislative initiative undertaken in response to a bipartisan congressiona recommendation.
