Jt$ · Northw4tt Artamas TIMES, Wed., Oct. 16, 1974 Congress Fails Ford's First Test '".· By UlCHAliD J. RIAt.OY TIMES Washington Bureau WASHINGTON -- Hero is a roundup of new items gathered by Hie staff of our \Vnshington Bureau. ',, CONGRESS FAILS -- President Ford gave Congress a test last week and most of the law- fnakeis tailed lo get a passing grade. Delivering his economic program to a joint session of Congress. Mr. Ford said the "acid test" of America's determination to come to grips with inflation was whether the congressmen would be willing to accept a lax increase only one month from the time all House members and one third of the Senate were up for re-election at the polls. Minutes' after the chief exccu- (ive finished speaking, reporters put congressmen to the lest, by asking them what they felt 'about Mr. Ford's economic program and the proposed five per cent (ax surcharge. With their minds firmly fixed on the voters back home, congressmen almost universally criticized the tax increase proposal and said they opposed it. A spot-check ot 32 House and Senate members uncovered only six who did not oppose the tax. Of those six, there were five congressmen who. did not endorse the tax but said they were willing to keep an open mind on the question. Only one. Sen. Robert Taft Jr. of Ohio, supported the lax s u r c h a r g e as "fair and needed." Significantly, Taft is not up for re-election this year. In his speech, Ihe President ta.\' surcharge on individual arid corporate income was needed to raise money to pay for o t h e r parts ot his anti- inflation program. Typically those congressmen interviewed strongly backed these costly programs - such as" extended jobless pay benefits and public service jobs * hut did not go along with the tax increase needed to pay for the programs. How they will actually vote on the tax hike, once the election is over and they have returned to Washington, is an open question. "They are putting themselves in-' a box, "remarked Hep. Clarence J. Brown of Ohio, "If they don't approve higher taxes, the only thing left will he to cut spending for popular government programs." BIRTHDAY MUSIC -- ' The Defense Department is creating a major new military band to provide some birthday music for America's bicentennial fete. A special "U.S.. Armed Forces Bicentennial Band," composed of 67 musicians and a 24-member chorus drawn from all the services, will come i into existence early next year. I ·~ : The Pentagon announcement' said the" band, to be headquar-' tercel at nearby Fort Meade, Md., will tour the nation during 1975 and 1976 to perform in all 50 state capitals and numerous other cities and towns as part of our 200th birthday. POPULATION -- The U:S. Census Bureau has made a new estimate of the ration's population and reports there w e r e 211,909,009 people in the country on July 1. This, represents an increase of 3.7 per cent since the last Census in 1970 showing U.S. population at 204.3 million persons. . . The average annual population increase was less than one per cent, as fertility rates fell to their lowest in American history. A breakdown showed there are fewer young children today and more oldsters than ever before. Children under Ihe age of five make up only 7.7 per cent of the population today, compared to 11.3 per cent in 1960. Persons over the age of 65 constitute 10.3 per cent of the population, compared to 9.2 per cent in 1960. The largest age group is composed of persons between the ages of 5 and 13, who constituted 16.1 per cent of the population. ENERGY Conservation pleas and the h i g h cost of fuel are causing the first decline in gasoline consumption in recent history. The Federal Highway Administration reported total gasoline consumption will be 110.7 billion gallons this year a decrease of 3.2 per cent below the 1973 consumption figure This will be the first year since 1943 that gasoline con sumption failed to increase During that year, war-time gas rationing was in effect DOMESTIC PAY - T h e U S Labor Department has issued proposed rules regarding wages for domestic workers. Under the new minimum wage law, domestic workers Such as cooks and maids must be paid the minimum wage if they engage in such work for one or more employers eight hours a week. Babysitters who engage jn such work more than 20-hours a week or spend '0 per cent of their time doing household work while babysitting, must also be paid the minimum wage. miTM, 8 law now sets the mini- T m o w a g c for such workers at 51.90 per hour, but the rate goes up lo $2 in January.

The PSC gave APfcL permission last Friday to build only two of its proposed fonr coal-fired generating units on the banks of the Arkansat River near Redfield. In a prepared statement, Reeves Ritchie, APL pr«il- denl, said the importani thing is to begin constrnction. "Time is of the essence if w« are to meet the needs of ths consuming public in Arkansas in 1978 and 1979." Ritchie said. "We expect to get construction started on the first two units at White Bluff within a week, and studies will continue to dater- mine how best to meet the additional electrical needs in 1980 and 1981. "We have no reason at thii point of time to think that our previous projections of capacity requirements in Arkansas do not still require the construction of units 3 and 4, and we will proceed on the basis that we are obligated to meet th« load requirements in · some manner in that time frame." Ritchie would not elaborate on the statement. The two units allowed by th« PSC would have a gross capacity of 800 megawatts each. The PSC did not preclude APL from applying to build the other two units at other location*.
