the Middle Warren said the President also would meet at 6 p.m today at his Camp David Md retreat with Soviet Ambassador Anatoly F Dobrynin who has been a go-between in the diplomatic moves Studded

effort to narrow the negotiating gap The United States is in especially close contact with Israel as illustrated by announcement of Mrs Meir's visit and the Soviet Union presumably is in equally close touch with the Arab states Carrier in Indian Ocean WASHINGTON AP Pentagon says a U.S Navy carrier force is on its way to the Indian Ocean but that the movement is unrelated to the up of Soviet naval forces in the Pentagon spokesman Jerry W Friedheim issued the denial Monday several hours after he had volunteered news of the U.S naval move and told reporters the United States as watching with interest the increasing size of the Soviet fleet in the terranean Friedheim later emphasized there was no relation between the move of the U.S carrier Hancock accompanied by four destroyers and refueling oii tanker into the Indian Ocena and Soviet naval operations in the Mediterranean The Suez Canal closed since the 1967 war is the only direct sea route between the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean The Soviet Mediterranean force has been increasing steadily throughout the recent Middle East hostilities Friedheim said the fleet went from 85 vessels to about 90 Monday But in his later statement he stressed Defense Secretary James R Schlesinger said Friday we were a long way from a confrontation with the Soviets then and we are even further from any such confrontations today Hang in

stabilize says the former head of the defunct Price Commission C Jackson Grayson Jr who headed the commission during its existence until it was disbanded in January said now is not the time for the Nixon administration to junk controls They can't afford to take them off right Grayson said in a telephone interview There would be such an explosion in prices that there would be a great demand for more stringent con- He said the public resistance would be so great that Congress might even legislate a price freeze a policy tool he opposes to deal with the present price surge Grayson said he saw no chance that controls could be dropped this year but added hopefully early next year it will be possible By then I hope the rises will have abated and the economy will have slowed down to give a little breathing room A slower economy usually means there is less pressure for price increases Grayson who has returned to his economics post at Southern Methodist University said he favored allowing the legal authority for wage-price controls to expire next April 30 because retaining it creates a temptation for continuing controls after their usefulness has ex- That legal authority is contained in the Economic Stabilization Act which ex- pires next April 30 Unless Congress extends the power wage-price controls will automatically end on that date Grayson said however that there may be a tradeoff with Congress in which wage-price controls are formally but standby authority for them is retained President Nixon has not announced V whether he will seek an extension of the law but his economic aides want to scrap wage-price controls as soon as the rate of inflation shows positive signs of cooling Grayson who was in charge of Phase 2 of wage-price controls said that wage-price restraints can work for a limited period of as they did during Phase 2 But now he said with the economy having gone through a boom and heavy demand present for commodities price controls can do little to restrain ion At the first opportunity they should remove Grayson said Archibald Cox News leak admitted by Cox WASHINGTON AP Cox testified today he may have been the source of a news leak about a
