Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - September 25, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa No Shortage of Advice on By Jahu ( unRiff NEW YORK (AP) - There Is no dearth of material from which President Ford can pick and choose in formulating an anti-inflation policy. There nevW was, and that is precisely his problem. He must exercise the wisdom of Solomon. On the matter of taxing, for example, Richard Cooper of Yale university claims a tax reduction of Sift billion to $15 billion for low-moderate incomes would be anti-inflationary. But J. Kenneth Galbraith of Harvard urges a tax increase. The proposals advocated over the last three weeks of pre-summitry are replete with contradictions and special pleading of business, finance, labor, government, housing, the poor, investors, borrowers, lenders . . . But there are' areas of agreement as well, especially in regard to lowering interest rates, keeping a check on government spending, and attempting to keep joblessness from rising swiftly during the adjustment to more stability. Among the suggestions that must be considered by Paul McCracken, who has the unenviable job of formulating an economic program, are these — separated into monetary (money supply, cost) and fiscal (government spending, taxing) categories: Monetary Ease federal reserve policy on money supply. Widely advocated by economists and others of all persuasions While John Cunniff administration spokesmen opposed mildly, Arthur Burns, fed chairman, indicates the easing already may have begun Allocate credit to most productive uses. Money now is allocated by price alone. Has been suggested that criteria of efficiency and social good, such as to boost housing, also be used. Negotiation of an international agreement to regulate Eurodollars. These are obligations payable abroad in U.S. currency. Critics contend that while domestic dollar supply is limited by fed, dollars abroad are unregulated Fiscal Balance the budget. That is. don’t permit government spending to exceed revenues. Widespread support. Government budget deficits over a long period of time are highly inflationary. “There is only one cure and we all know it.” said Milton Friedman of the University of Chicago, generally regarded as a conservative. ‘‘We have to slow down total spending Only the federal government can do that. ” Use taxing power for special effects. Nathaniel Goldfinger, AFL-CIO economist, proposes an excess profits tax. Investment community wants to encourage capital formation by lowering income tax on interest and dividends. Some economists suggest higher taxes on income to curtail demand. But others suggest a tax cut for lower income workers to make them more satisfied with smaller wage increases. Many of the suggestions from economists and others go beyond the usual fiscal-monetary measures. Among the suggestions for a multidimensional attack on inflation are these Controls or restraints. Business especially complains about negotiated inflation through wage settlements, but unions declare something of the same sort occurs with prices. Less support than in past, but still prominently mentioned. Indexing Advocated by the Friedman school. “Escalator clauses on all sorts of things,” says Friedman, plus cost-of-living adjustment on taxes. Already used in labor contracts, which specify raises equal to inflation rate. Examination of existing regulations and subsidies. Hendrik Houthakker. Harvard economist and former adviser to President Nixon, claims he has a list of 45 federal programs that inflate prices and which should bt1 ended. Business complains that environmental and safety regulations raise prices without contributing to production.

Antitrust action Various proposals have been suggested even before pre-summit conferences. The belief is that concentrations of power in big industries, unions, institutions tends to reduce competition. Encouraging smaller businesses. The more competition the lower the prices — in theory anyway. Assessor Sets Rapid Inflation COCOA BEACH. Fla (AP) — When .James Higdon purchased an aluminum utility shed for $88, he thought he was getting a good buy. The Brevard county tax assessor apparently agreed, valuing the shed for tax purposes at $511.67 The only addition Higdon said he made on the shed behind his home was a floor, built out of scrap lumber. BRIM: SAFELY Squatter Makes Himself at Home In French Palace PARIS (UPI) — Bernard L’Heureux wanted President \ aiery Giscard D’Estaing to help him collect a $240 claim against the army, so he walked unchallenged into the Elysee palace, drank milk and wine from a presidential refrigerator and took a nap in a palace chamber. A valet discovered the uninvited guest. '■‘‘Ah, I’m glad to see someone finally,” L’Heureux, 23, told the servant, ‘i’ve been looking for the president sinee last night I have a very important request to make of him. Can you take me to him?” The servant fled, shouting. ‘‘A squatter! I tell you there’s a squatter!” He returned with security men and the intruder was gone. He was soon found in a bathroom, shining his shoes L’Heureux said he walked into the palace, got lost, got hungry and drank a pint of milk and a bottle of wine he found in a refrigerator Police released L’Heureux after questioning and a medical examination. Giscard D’Estaing had been away for the weekend. ON THIS DATE in 1775, the American Revolutionary war hero, Ethan Allen, was captured by the British and Indians as he led an attack on Montreal ‘Artpark’ LEWISTON, N Y (AP) -From the rubble of a local dump has risen New York State’s newest cultural center — Artpark The resurrection has not been cheap The Artpark Theater, busy hub of the park's activities, gobbled up $7 2 million in state funds before the opening night curtain was raised But since the July 25 debut, officials of the state’s department of parks and recreation have recorded box-office receipts of $135,000, a figure expected to climb before the season ends Sept 13. “The season has been extraordinarily exceptional, ' said ( harks Cinnamon, the theater's publicity director. “It’s been beautifully accepted by the audience. There's a climate, there’s something in the air. The minute you come here you respond to it.” The theater, a massive structure of brick, glass and steel, resembles a topless pyramid. It sits overlooking the precipitous Niagara river gorge, slightly down river from the world-famous falls. The facility seats 2.400, hut giant steel shutters can be raised behind the building to allow another 1,500, seater on a grassy incline, to view productions from outdoors. There is also an artists-in-residence program claimed by first. “We've asked them k come and use the park as a lahora tory for their ideas.’ said Dale Mel Anality, the park’s execu live director. The invitation has drawn about 30 sculptors, poets, dancers, printers and architects, who are paid up to $290 a week to ply their crafts before park patrons. Jqck Maranville, a parks department spokesman, said original cost estimates for just the theater came to about $5 million. The complex, including two 560-ear parking lots, an amphitheater and boardwalk, is expected to have a final bill of about $10 million. The premier season has served as an audience market study, giving state planners a chance to determine what the audience likes, said parks department analyst Mark Lyons Lynns says the best received offering to date has been piano virtuoso Van (llburn's stand ing-room only appearance Rock concerts have done poorly. The season has included a potpourri of entertainment ranging from the ear-splitting rock of Blue Oyster Cult, through the mellower tones of Gordon Lighlfoot and on to the patter of slippers from New f ’• city’s Jeffrey Ballet. r   V, TIK Ellis Part Church of Hod ^ •*L” Ave. and 8th St. N.W. prenenl* The Exciting Gospel Singing Group The Tom Mitzsche Trio THURSDAY & FRIDAY Sept. 26 & 28th af 7:30 p.m. and SUNDAY SKPT. 29 at 10:30 and 6:00 with Evangelist Dick Reinholtz, Founder and recent Director of Houston \ outh for ( Brist Everyone    Nurnery Wekom*    iruilnhle    ^ ;
