Stage Is Set For Relations With Peking WASHINGTON (AP) The announcement that Presidenl 'ord .will be going to China in 1975 sets the stage for es- ablishing diplomatic relations >etween Washington and Peking n the not too distant future. No one expects that Ford will ie going to the Chinese main- and simply to visit the Great Wall. Friday's announcement marks a major milestone, com- mitting his administration to further normalization of rela- tions in accord with the Shang- hai communique of 1972. One year ago, on leaving China after his sixth trip, Secre- tary of State Kissinger told newsmen there were points in the communique that the U. S. would like to explore. There has been an impression here that Chinese Communist leaders were unhappy at the pace of the exploration for more normal relations. According to informants, it appears Kissinger was strongly nudged by ailing Premier Chou En-lai, Deputy Prime Minister Teng Hsiao-peng and Foreign Minister Chiao Kuan-hua to set in motion diplomatic recognition of Peking now before there are any further changes in the Chi- nese hierarchy. Ford is expected to make the trip in the second half of 1975, U. S. officials said. It is highly probable that the visit will come while the U. S. remains treaty-bound to defend the Republic of China on Tai- wan in event of attack. The security treaty for Tai- wan has no set duration. It requires one year of advance notice before either side can disavow it. China experts here expecl that the question of recognition Of Peking will be worked out with a typically Chinese flourish that manages to save face for all concerned. Snow: A Slick Way To Keep Track of Things j The snow may slow dow drivers, but it sure speeds tracking down thieves.

Frueehte continued to tra the thieves, following the track to a house in the 3300 block of avenue NE. There police arres ed two juveniles and recovere Ihe radio. The youths were charged wit larceny. Sees Oil Price Pledge as Aid To Independence WASHINGTON Indus rial nations might be able I >reak free from dependence-o Middle East oil by guaranteein ligh oil prices to spur develoj ment of new sources, an ae ministraton official suggests. A guaranteed price of be- ween a barrel and the pres mt world price of might be nough to encourage majo ompanies -to open up new oi ields around the world, Thoma inders, assistant secretary tate for economic and busines iffairs, said. He told a hearing of the ouse-senate international eco omics subcommittee that fee ral subsidies to oil companie might be one way of providing lie guarantees in the U. S. But Eep. Reuss sub- ommittee chairman, said he lought that, if Enders' sugges on became reality, the Indus rial nations would "becomi of tyranny of the oil reducing countries only to be ipped off by the major oil com anies." Reuss also said oil price sub- idles, combined with another dministration proposal to sup ort a energy mergency fund lfor industria ations, would pose a hardship ir American taxpayers. Enders emphasized, however lat President Ford has not de- ded to include the Subsidy an or any other specific pro- osals in recommendations he ill make to congress in Jan- ary. The administration has decid d only that fuel must be con erved and supplies increased 10 official added. He said the subsidy program 'ould not necessarily affect the rice of gasoline for American lotorists immediately but those ould probably rise over the ext decade.
