The vote sent the bin to con- ference with the House, which passed a similar measure a year ago. Earlier in the day, on an 88-0 vote, senators added to the bill a compromise amend- ment prohibiting U.S. trade concessions or credits for any Communist nation that does not lower emigration barriers. For the past year, most at- tention has been focused on the emigration provision, but. the bill itself grants the Pres- dent broad authority to seek agreements with other nations leading to a freer system of world trade. The measure alms to ensure that U.S. farmers and manu- facturers are given a .fair break in access to world mar- kets. The trade bill was assigned top-priority status by former President Richard M. Nixon and by President Ford. The nation's trading part- ners have been delaying inter- national trade negotiations for a year because the United States had no authority to make agreements. The emigration compromise, as finally approved, allows waiver of the prohibition for the next 18 months while the Communist countries show their good intentions on allow- ing free emigration. In return, U.S. trade conces- sions would be provided dur- ing that period, but could be revoked by Congress later if Inside Today Energy Brainstorm Planned President Ford's energy ad- visers meet Saturday at Camp David to recom- mend policies affecting the nation's fuel supplies.

Higher Consumer Prices Expected VIENNA, Austria (AP) Major oil producers adopted a new price system Friday that will boost their revenues fey 38 cents a barrel or 3.9 per, cent, for nine months starting Jan. 1. The big oil companies immediately said they cannot absorb the hike, with the clear implication It might be passed along to the consumer. Announcement of the reve- nue boost from to came as the United States ajjd other industrialized nations were seeking a cut, or at least a stabilization, in oil prices. In Brussels, Secretary of State Henry A. JCissinger told, the NATO allies the United States was considering incentives for development of other energy sources if-oil prices continue at their current high levels! A communique issued in Vi- enna after two days of talks said the oil producers will meet in Algiers Jan. 24 to dis- cuss details of further oil reve- nue liikes keyed to an average 14 per cent inflation rate la consumer nations, the same reason given for Friday's ac- tion. Conference sources said agreement on the new reve- nues came after Iran's oil minister fruitlessly pleaded with his Saudi counterpart to get back in line with the final 1974 quarter price for oil. Asked whether the hike will mean price increases for con- sumers, Iran's chief delegate, .1 a m s h i d Amouzegar, said, X "This all depends on how K much of this the companies r can absorb." He made it clear it was up to consumer nations themselves to control any profit-taking actions of the oil companies, but did not explain how this could be done. v. In New York, Exxon Corp., America's largest alternation- al oil company and one of Hie biggest importers of Middle East oil, said it makes an av- erage profit of 35 cents a bar- i: rel. "If the Arab countries and 'f- Other OPEC nations raise our cost of crude oil 38 cents ;a barrel, there clearly isn't enough profit to absorb an V: Exxon spokesman said. A spokesman for Gulf Oil :'j: Co. said that "under Federal Energy Administration pricing ,is regulations, the increase in the cost of crude can be' J; passed to the consumer. The The 38-cent-a-barrel increase f would amount to less than one cent a gallon increase in all manufactured products." He v said the decision to pass along the increase will be deter; :i' mined by the competition in 5 the marketplace. The oil producers approved 1 Persian Gulf oil price hikes i adopted last month that rais- ed government revenues from a barrel to That made their decision as the conference of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Coun- -J tries drew to a close.
