FORD AND PRESIDENT IN WASHINGTON will undergo surgery today Little Economic Concensus Reached on First Day Summit Delegates Want New Policies By GAYLORD SHAW Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (A P) Delegates to the economic summit conference bluntly told President Ford on Friday he should find new policies and advisers and make cer- tain the poor don't bear the brunt of the anti-inflation light. Ford spent most of the day presiding at the conference, brushing aside new calls for wage and price controls and listening as past and present policies came under sharp criticism from Democratic and labor delegates. No clear-cut consensus emerged from the first of the summit's two days of dis- cussion, but there was wide agreement on the need for tax .breaks for the poor and a gov- ernment job program for those thrown out of work by economic turmoil. Ford indicated he agrees with those two moves, but oth- er than ruling out wage-prke controls he gave few hints at the shape of the revamped economic policy he plans to announce soon. Sen. Edward Kenned y, D-Mass., keynoted the call for lax breaks for the poor. "Eco- nomics without justice is false he told Ford, who was seated a dozen feet away. Consumer representative Solomon Harge said "every day is a living crisis" for those on low or fixed incomes. "There is no way, Mr. Presi- dent, that an individual with limited income can exist Ihe working poor have suf- fered enough. It is time for somebody else to bite the bul- let." he said. Ford and other sponsors of the .conference, fielded criti- cism from Democrats, labor, youth, women and the poor, and heard representatives of wide ranging segments of the economy offer detailed pro- posals for policy changes. There was even a young man who, at the end of the day's session, took the floor to claim that the Arab oil crisis was "a rigged plan, part and parcel of a program by Nelson F o r d 's vice presidential nominee. The President let the man speak, then ignored his com- ments and adjourned the con- ference until a.m. Satur- day. Ford then planned to make a major economic ad- dress after another four hours of discussion. After the luncheon break, Ford extended Burns' "equal time" to respond to criticism of the Fed's tight money poli- ty. The silver-haired chairman said if the board were to fol- low the advice of its critics, "inflation would become much more intense and interest rates would go higher and higher." He confirmed that the board had recently taken action to relax slightly its restrictions on the growth of credit and the money supply, and that short-term market rates had declined and long-term rates had stabilized. Burns called this encourag- ing, but said there will never be a substantial reduction un- til economic confidence is res- tored. He urged "a national cru- sade to bring inflation under control" and said the board "will persevere in pursuing monetary policies that are necessary to curb our ramp- ant inflation." The board will aid any fin- ancial institutions caught in a temporary liquidity squeeze, he said, adding: "There will not be a credit crunch in our country." During the afternoon ses- sion, the conference heard speaker after speaker recite gloomy statistics on inflation's impact on the housing, trans- portation, recreation and Recycling Center Opens Today The Jaycees Recycling Center opens today at the Abilene Coca-Cola Bottling Co., 2074 N. 1st. The cen- ter will accept donations of newsprint, cardboard, rags, all-aluminum cans and green and clear glass. The center will operate from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on second and fourth Saturdays at the Coca-Cola plant. Proceeds from the center will fund Jaycee community projects. health industries. "Housing is in a serious, all out, 17 carat said Sen. William Proxmire, D- Wis., as he jouied Sen. Ed- ward Brooke, R-Mass., in call- ing for stepped up federal aid. Ford and James Lynn, se- cretary of Housing and Urban Development, came under fire for not including more poor people and women in the groups studying housing prob- lems. Karen DeCrow, president of the National Organization for Women, said only one woman had been included in the hous- ing meeting, and none on the panel making a presentation at the summit. "Although myth lias it that a Woman's place is in the home, this apparently is not the case at the economic sum- Ms. DeCrow said. "I would like to know how this panel can possibly represent a full inquiry into the housing problem when it consists 100 per cent of men and 53 per cent of the persons living in houses are Cushing Dolbeare of the Ru- ral Housing Alliance com- plained that "there are almost no poor people or representa- tives of poor people in the room today." Sometimes smiling, some- times grUii-faced as he puffed on his pipe, the President heard several conference dele- gates denounce his present anti-inflation policy and de- mand the ouster of his eco- nomic advisers. Ford said "no miracle cure" is in sight for America's eco- See SUMMIT.

The teacher, a 10-year veteran with the Abilene public schools, is currently in a San Antonio chest clinic where further testing is being done to confirm or deny the initial report. The teacher, who was not idenlificd, had an X-ray lest for tuberculosis near the end of the HJ7.1-74 school year which showed However, his ill health has been noted since the start of school this year. CHS Principal Malcolm Anthony will meet with the about 100 students in Ihe teacher's classes Monday. Tuberculosis is not a highly con- tagious disease, but each student in the teacher's classes will be given the opportunity on both Wednesday and Friday to have a free TB skin test at the school or lo have one from their family physician. Anthony is asking that those students who have their family physician con- duct the test send a copy of the rcsulls to the school. The tests will be given again in about two months, Miss Marion Bush, head nurse, said. The teacher's wife, who is also a teacher, left the classroom temporarily lo take her husband to San Antonio. The physician in charge of the case has noted that the tuberculosis is only suspected now, but rather than take chances, each student should be tested. He noted that no one can be forced lo lake Ihe skin lest. Surgery on Mrs. Ford Will Check for Cancer By FRANK CORMIER Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) Bet- ty Ford, wife of the President, entered a suburban Naval hos- pital on Friday for surgery on Saturday to determine wheth- er she is suffering from breast cancer. Three hours after the First Lady was'admitted to Bethes- da, Md., Naval Hospital, the President went by motorcade from the White House for an after-dinner visit with his wife, who was described as "in good spirits." White House Press Secre- tary Ron Nessen, in a state- ment read to newsmen, said the purpose of Saturday's sur- gery is "to determine through biopsy whether the nodule (in her right breast i is benign or malignant. Should it prove to lie malignant, surgery would lie performed to remove the right breast." The nodule was discovered Thursday in what Nessen de- scribed as "a regular medical checkup." He said Mrs. Ford had no suspicion Ihe nodule existed until the doctors found it. Mrs. Ford, 56, entered the hospital at p.m. CDT Shortly before 9 p.m., the President went by limousine to the hospital, accompanied by the Ford's seminary stu- dent son, Michael and Mi- chael's wife Gail. Daughter Susan, 18, had come to the hospital earlier. When the President entered the third-floor VIP suite he found his wife, dressed in a pink, quilted housecoat having a dinner of steal; and french fries with her chief assistant.

Ford added, according to the aide, that the last time he was in the Naval hospital for knee surgery-several years ago he "never had such a nice suite or such a fine din- ner." White House spokesmen said they did not know what time the initial surgery would be performed, but one official said the President planned to keep a busy Saturday schedule that included a major address- Sec MRS.

The band led by a con- victed airplane hijacker re- cently freed from jail manded the ransom money from the United States govern- ment, but diplomatic sources said Friday night Venezuela was willing to pay it if the Dominican government would free the 38 political prisoners. Sources at the presidential palace in Santo Domingo said, however, that it would be al- most impossible to reach a solution "before Ihe 24-hour deadline" that comes Satur- day at noon. The Dominican government maintained offi- cial silence. The American hostage is Barbara Ilulcliison. director of the U.S. Information Service in the Dominican Republic, which shares the. Caribbean is- land of Hispaniola with Haiti. She was abducted by five armed men at a.m. Fri- day outside her office on a quiet tree-lined street and then was driven to the Venezuelan consulate. The Venezuelan F o r e i g n Ministry in Caracas said 23 guerrillas were involved in the consulate takeover. One of the hostages, Venezuelan Consul .lesus Gregorio de Corral, told the Associated Press by tele- phone that the gunmen had planted the bombs and would set them off, "killing us unless their demands were met. The diplomatic sources in Santo Domingo said the offer to pay the ransom came from President Carlos Andres Perez in a communication to the Do- minican government. The hostages appeared to be well treated, but Corral said the consulate did not have enough food for a long siege. "Well, we're fine. All eight of us are fine We're getting Miss Hutchison, 47, said in a telephone interview with NBC Kaclio in New York. CMS Radio in New York said she referred to "ten of us See LEFTISTS, I'g.
