Sunday 35 Meany opens drive against gop Carter asks Power to fire feb head Washington a Jimmy Carter told the Afu Cio today that the chairman of the Federal Reserve Board should be under closer control and that the president should have the Power to fire him. Carter said eight years of presidents Nixon and Ford have led to economic stagnation and have changed the american spirit for the worse creating a need for changes in the economic system. The speech by the former Georgia governor followed a fiery talk by Al Cio president George Meany kicking off organized labor s drive to oust the republicans from the White House. Meany brought top Al Cio leaders Here to outline political strategy vowing that labor a is going to do All we can to help elect the democratic ticket in november Carter proposed that the term of the chairman of the Federal Reserve Board a nmn for the same four years As the members of the Board now serve 14-year terms and cannot be removed except for wrongdoing. While maintaining the boards Independence the chairman would consult More closely with the president other executive leaders and the members of Congress in developing a consistent economic policy a the democratic presidential nominee said. Carter s plan is certain to be applauded by some democratic members of Congress who believe the Federal Reserve has had too much say in the setting of interest rates and in other u s economic policy. It is equally certain to be opposed by some business leaders who believe the Federal Reserve should be relatively free of political considerations and the terms of presidents. In his first approach to the Al Cio since winning its endorsement earlier in the month. Carter argued that unemployment can be kept Low while inflation is kept in Check he promised that economic policies in a Carter administration would be More consistent than under the gop administration saying a a More coherent set of Long term economic goals can help us eliminate the wild rollercoaster dips of the last eight As to a policy requiring a percentage of americans to be unemployed Carter said the Issue is whether one economic group can Force others a to pay the Price for the incompetence of their leaders. I say that any economic philosophy that relies on keeping people out of work is morally economically and politically Carter said he will exert every Effort to protect the nation from a debilitating inflation and promised he would not subject organized labor to special restrictions Meany in his speech to the Union s general Board said. A we be had enough of government by veto by stalemate by inaction by deceit and by Pardon a a government that just drifts along with no leadership no firm policy foreign or Carter and his vice presidential running mate sen Walter f.
