Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - May 28, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Weather— Cloudy with occasional showers tonight and Wednesday. I .ow tonight near tilt. High Wednesday in the 70s and lower 80s. VOLUME 02 NUM RUH I .'III rn CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA, TUESDAY, MAY 28, 1874 111 CITY FINAL 15 CENTS ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES Drop to 7% WASHINGTON (AP) — President Nixon Tuesday sent congress a special economic report predicting that the surge in inflation should subside to about seven percent in the last quarter of this year. In the past three months tile cost of living increase has been at an annual rate of 12.1 percent, the highest level since 1951. The President, following up on a weekend radio address, told congress he sees “signs of improvement” in the economic outlook and added: “Although the recent events are not conclusive they tend to strengthen the expectation that in the remainder of this year, output will be rising rapidly, prices will be rising much less rapidly and the unemployment rate, while it will probably rise further, will not reach a very high point before it recedes.” Cabinet Meeting As the report to congress was released, Nixon convened a mid morning cabinet meeting, presumably to discuss the economy as well as other current issues. Among the participants was Kenneth Rush, designated by Nixon on Saturday as coordinator of domestic and international economic policy. Nixon’s economic comments came in a preface to a special report prepared by his Council of Economic Advisers. The advisers made these major points: By the fourth quarter of 1974 “we should see a rate of inflation substantially below the recent 12-percent rate . . . We would suggest that the rate in the fourth quarter might be in the neighborhood of seven percent.” The budget deficit for fiscal 1975 will be larger than originally estimated. $11.4 billion instead of $9.4 billion, but the deficit for 1974 should be smaller than forecast, $3.5 billion instead of $4.7 billion. Once the administration’s policy of monetary restraint succeeds in subduing inflation, “interest rates will decline." But the economic advisers did not predict by how much. The unemployment rate which was 5 percent in April probably will rise to between 5.5 and 6 percent in the months ahead. Second half of 1974 should see an increase in production of between 2 percent and 4 percent. “Avoid Temptations” Nixon warned in the report that “there is a special danger that the decline of tho inflation rate will be small and soon reversed if we do not firmly resist temptations to new inflationary policy.” Among the temptations lie mentioned were a tax reduction and spending in excess of Iii* proposed budget. Nixon urged congressional action on his trade, energy, and other legislative proposals, contending: “There is so much to do that we cannot afford to waste time arguing about whether our problems are greater or .smaller than our blessings, lf we concentrate on working together on the problems we shall be better oil, both for the solutions reached and for the working together.” Today s Index Supreme Court Sets Q|]C Hor?
