A peace formula yet to be accepted by rank and file workers was thrashed out at heaths London residence on Downing Street Early saturday morning. It spelled unqualified Victory for the militant National Union of mineworkers and defeat for the government s economic policy of curbing pay raises that feed inflation. And it meant Little immediate Relief for millions of britons who for More than a week have been subjected to electric Power blackouts turning Homes for hours at a time into cheerless dark worlds of cold food and candlelight.

Pages 4-1 i six months old Price controls working by Brooks Jackson associated press writer Washington a president Nixon a system of wage and Price controls has passed its six month anniversary with the administration staunchly predicting eventual Success despite rising prices but with some critics getting increasingly worried. All that can be said with certainty is that it is too soon to Tell whether the year will end with the rate of inflation Down to Between 2 and 3 Are cent which is Nixon a goal. Even january a Cost of living released this week wont be much help. The administration already has predicted that prices will continue to surge until about april before controls really take hold. Without hard figures doubts have begun to grow. I ast week 20 economists predicted for the business Council a group of top executives that inflation would run at Between 3 and 4 per cent this year. They expressed Strong concern that the administrations deficit spending would stimulate the Economy so much that controls would not be Able to hold Down inflation. Meanwhile the business of regulating wages and prices has fallen into nearly a routine. The Price commissions 700 staff members handle most applications for Price increases. The commission meanwhile continues to refine its policies. It holds its first Public hearings this week to Sharpen up its guidelines for Utility rates which Are Frozen until March to the pay Board whose members once insulted one another in Public appears to have parsed its worst Days and has quietly buckled Down to Dis cussing such matters As what size fringe benefits will be allowed to pass through the vague loophole Congress created for them last year.

The comment was relatively mild. The timing probably was intended to remind Nixon that major differences still exist Between the two Powers after More than two decades of hostility. Yet in the months since Nixon announced plans for the trip in july the official chinese communist press has been uncharacteristically restrained in enticing his policies. Reading Between the lines it appears that Hie chinese Are trying to put at least the facade of Success on his historic visit. Tile reason for this May be China fear of the soviet Union. Russian troops Are concentrated along China s Borders. And since the chinese soviet Border clashes in 1969. The russians have replaced the americans As peking a Archenemy. The attack on Nixon a foreign policy distributed by the official new China news Agency called Nixon a foreign policy hostile toward China. But the Long commentary consisted mainly of Stock phrases.
