"But once we're over it, in Ihe next month or two, I think you'll see economie conditions improv- ing around the country." Ford warned, however, that unless the Arab embargo ends soon, "we may have no alterna- tive than to have to have gaso- line rationing. "We no not want gasoline ra- tioning.

Although there have been sig- nificanl increases in social secu- rity bencfils during Ihe past five years, Clark said, an impressive percentage increase is not a large enough real increase when the original figure was much too low. Planned Rill The senator said he will in traduce a bin ir: '.he ncxl GO days designed to insure that all recipients will have income at least equal lo the poverty level of for an individual and for an elderly couple. In addition, Clark said, a way must be found to supplement he payroll tax as a means of fi- nancing security pro- rams, reached lhe said. Another According to Nixon, the objec- tive of his transit program "is to provide you' with diverse forms of public transportation that take into account the need for transportation without envir- onmental damage, without wast- ed energy, and without conges- tion." In dealing with rail legisla- tion, Nixon said he would send to congress next week a com- panion bill, the Transportation Improvement Act of 1874, "that would authorize bil- lion in federal loan guarantees to help railroads" improve tracks, terminals..and equip- ment. "These loan guarantees are not a signal that'.We intend to provide public handouts to our he said; adding that "they are intended to restore the railroads to a position in which they can once again com- pete economically with other forms of transportation, and therefore support themselves without federal assistance."

"They're badly needed, and many people are just doing without them because they can'l afford he said. Housing Clark said housing programs are needed to replace and ex tend those ended by Presiden Nixon last year, and that there is a continuing need for trans porlalion for senior citizens particularly in rural areas. Also needed, he said, an more programs such as "meal: on wheels" and congregate meals to provide for the nutri tional needs of the elderly. Many older persons are sacri ficing nutrition in order to pay for housing and remain indepen dent, he said.

The most significant change, he said, is a two-step raise in social security benefits which will mean a seven percent increase n April and an additional four percent in July.
