Exchanging toasts at a formal dinner, the French president in turn indicated a willingness to work out a joint approach to key issues, declaring “it is...by concert that we will arrive at a solution to the problem of rising petroleum prices.” Ford arrived on this Carib bean island earlier Saturday for two days of talks with discard d’Estaing. During the flight from Washington a senior adviser told newsmen the President is ready to reach a compromise with Franc* on world energy policy. Details of an energy agreement remain to be worked out,, but the senior official said the move could lead to a major international conference next summer between oil consuming and oil producing nations. The official, who declined to be named, indicated that under the proposed compromise, the United States would ease its pressure for France to join the U.S.-sponsored International Energy Agency, while France would soften its insistence for a quick conference between the oil consuming and oil producing nations. In toasting    Giscard d’Estaing, Ford delated: “Unilateral measures can no longer suffice in solving problems of such universal dimension” as the problem of energy and petroleum. “lf we are to transcend our difficulties and successfully meet our challenges, we seek constructive dialogue, not confr ontat lon,” Ford said. .. The United States is con vinced that cooperation and solidarity among the consuming nations marks the surest way to reach understanding with the producer nations, which we all desire.” The United Stales has opposed a conference of petroleum users and producers — as has l>een urged by France — unless careful preparations are first made to insure the consuming nations will present a unified bargaining position. Giscard d'Estaing in his dinner remarks signaled a readiness to go along with such populations.

Lippmann, a Pulitzer prizewinner, wielded enormous authority through his newspaper column which for years was syndicated by the New York Herald Tribune and later by the Washington Post. “Lippmann always has his own foreign policy,” said the late President John F. Kennedy when told that then Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev considered the writer the true exponent of American Mews and government statements only propaganda. “Sometimes it coincides with ours,” Kennedy added President Ford, on learning of Lippmann’s death, issued a statement of tribute: “With the death of Walter Lippmann we have iost a great American. As a newsman, political analyst and author, Walter Lippmann played a major role for more than half a century in the development of public dialogue and in shaping a new standard of journalism. “Mr. Lippmann’s contribution to the good society which he envisioned for his country will lie long remembered ...” Lippmann, a ruddy-faced man with twinkling blue eyes, was disturbed by Kennedy’s position and advised Khrushchev, through a mutual acquaintance, to rely on U, S. government sources for the official view and regard his column a* merely opinion.
