Restraints on wages prices Are called for voluntary action urged by officials by Sterling of Green associated press writer hot Springs a. A president Johnson s top eco nomic adviser and an official of a Federal Reserve Bank say that even if there is a tax hike voluntary restraint on wages and prices will be needed to combat inflation. Chairman Arthur m. Okun of the president s Council of eco nomic advisers and president Alfred Hayes of the Federal re serve Bank of new York told the nation s Industrial leaders Friday some action must be taken to halt spiralling wages which in turn threaten spiralling prices. Okun and Hayes addressed huh Frk share audience without seeing each other by Walter r. Mears Omaha neb. A Hubert h. Humphrey and Robert f. Kennedy have shared a Campaign audience without seeing each and a promoter of the vice president s cause said he hoped the appearance would encourage Humphrey write in votes in the Nebraska presiden tial primary.

Humphrey got the louder the business Council at its Spring meeting. Some 10 presi dents and Board chairmen of the nation s biggest firms discuss Urban problems today. Okun said the journey Back to Price stability will be a Long and difficult one even if con Gress enacts Johnson s proposed 10 per cent surcharge on income taxes. The Basic problem for reconciling Prosperity and Price stability is going to be with us a Long time and the need for some kind of voluntary restraint is very great he said. Okun did not use the word guideposts to describe the voluntary wage Price restraints he advocated. But Hayes said this device needs careful and sym pathetic re examination even though it is considered out of fashion. While direct and rigid governmental controls Over prices and wages must be rejected As counter to the very principles of free Commerce we seek to sus Tain we must find some Way of upholding the guidepost Princi ple of keeping wage increases in line with average productivity Hayes said. If we Are successful in moderating excess demand with the pending tax hike then at least we will have moved to Ward a situation where the guidepost principles can work and it will then be up to labor and management to see that they do work. The lesson of the guideposts is now less valid than in the Days when More attention was paid to that wage increases in excess of increases in real output can represent nothing More than an inflation Ary Hayes told the business leaders. The government s guideposts virtually collapsed in 1966. The wage increase formula had been 3.2 per cent up to then but prices surged beyond guidepost More frequent applause.
