Election in Britain Set For Oct. 10 LONDON (AP) - Prime Minister Harold Wilson Wednesday called a national election for Oct. IO that is virtually certain to be fought out on ways to control Britain’s soaring cost of living. An announcement from Wilson’s office at No. IO Downing St. said Queen Elizabeth ll would dissolve parliament Friday for the three-week campaign. The new parliament will convene Oct. 29 and the party with the most members in the 635-seat house of commons will form Britain’s next government. Wilson’s i^aborites, former Prime Minister Edward Heath’s opposition Conservatives and Jeremy Thorpe’s small middle-road Liberals Monday will begin a daily round of nationally-televised press conferences. Rival Approaches Spokesmen for all three parties agreed that the major issue would be rival approaches on how to arrest Britain’s rate of inflation, now nearing 20 percent annually. In calling the election, Wilson is gambling with his political life. Opinion polls are inconclusive, with some showing a narrow lead for his party. He is aware that public opinion can shift radically during the campaign and is fond of saying “a week is a long time in politics.” In 1970. Wilson called an election when enjoying a comfortable lead in the polls, only to be upset by Heath's Conservatives four weeks later. Heath fell into the same trap last February, calling for a ballot when polls showed him ahead, only to lose on election day. Indecisive Vote The February vote was indecisive, giving Labor the most commons seats but depriving it of a working majority. Wilson now' seeks a mandate to push through his party’s controversial program of economic recovery. including higher taxes, on the rich and more nationalization of private industry. Thc parties differ in their approach to inflation. Labor wants voluntary wage controls and some statutory price controls. The Conservatives say statutory control of both wages and prices may be needed if voluntary restraints fail. The Liberals, who have not held power since World war I, seek to build a middle ground. They trebled their vote to six million in February, largely from public dissatisfaction with the two major parties, but won only 14 seats in commons. In another close election they could be the balance of power and form a coalition with either Labor or Conservatives. Nuclear-Curb Talks Resumed GENEVA (AP) - U. S. and Soviet negotiators Wednesday launched a new effort to achieve, possibly by next year, a wide-ranging accord limiting each others nuclear overkill capacities. After a half-year recess, they had a two-hour-and-40-minutc opening session in the new round of their super secret strategic arms limitation talks — SALT IL Report Selassie Is Hospitalized ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) — Unconfirmed reports Wednesday said deposed Emperor Haile Selassie is in weak condition from a hunger strike and has been admitted to a military hospital. He is 82. Spokesmen of the ruling military council denied the reports. programs aimed at overcoming He sought to kill the rider health and safety act UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (AP) — President Ford, pledging increased food shipments abroad, told the U. N. General Assembly Wednesday that “a global strategy for food and energy is urgently required.” In his first appearance before the world organization, Ford said the alternative to cooperation is confrontation. “Let us not delude ourselves,” he said. “Failure to cooperate on oil. food and inflation could spell disaster for every nation represented in this room. The United Nations must not and need not allow this to occur. A global strategy for food and energy is urgently required.” Ford departed from his prepared text to underscore support for Secretary of State Kissinger, who w as disturbed Tuesday by reports that a “transition recommendation” to Ford urged that the secretary be stripped of his role as the President’s assistant for national security affairs. —UPI Telephoto INTEGRATION VIGIL — A boy wearing a riot helmet otters some ot his popcorn to one ot the policemen keeping vigil around South Boston high school, where black pupils are being bused by court order.
