Linn Medical Society Eyes Family Physician Shortage S420 Price Hike For 1975 Fords New York Times Service Culver: U.S. Should Live Within Means Congressman .John Culver told members of the Disabled American Veterans Saturday night that the federal government must make more of an effort to live within its means. Culver addressed the Iowa department of DAV’s 51st annual convention, and 29th DAV auxiliary meeting at the Roosevelt I hotel. Calling inflation “a deadly and pernicious enemy,” Culver said “a nation with a bankrupt economy is in as poor a position to defend itself as a nation with obsolete armaments and inadequate military personnel.” Culver, the Democratic candidate for U.S. senate, told the veterans that during his Kl years in congress he has boon “an ardent and consistent advocate of veterans benefits and programs. But he added: “I don’t want to leave the impression that I can automatically be counted on to vote for veterans legislation no matter what it is. “Inflation is a deadly and pernicious enemy to this country’s well-being, and quite frankly I believe we must scrutinize the dollars we are spending on veterans affairs as closely as we watch spending anywhere else in government.” Culver was critical of the percent Nixon Administration's control approximately eight DETROIT — The Ford Motor higher than present 1974 model;of the Veterans administration ICO. plans to raise prices on its.prices.”    during    the past five years.
