Car prices increase turned down WASHINGTON (AP) The United StaU.-s price commission dotued today requests hy Ford and Cencral Motors for price increases on their 1973 car modei.s. Commissioner Chairman C. Jackson Grayson said Ihe re- qucst of the Iwo giant auto- makers was being denied be- cause the Increase could push Ihe profit margins of the two firms beyond permissible lim Is. Ford in a request revised this week bad asked for a or increase. The quest covered safety equipment d emission controls, fk'neral Motors had asked for or 1.53-per-cenL increase for the same purpose. Chrysler Corp. and American Motors also have requests pen-ling before Ihn commission. Grayson said these requests would continue to suspended unlil the commission- can holr hearings on aulo prices nexl monlb. The decision meant (hat con sumrrs could expect lo avoid n price increase on GM and Kortf cat's at least until Novemltfr.

The change of heart among rural ami small town ma.stfir.s was hronghL home ar- lior this year ftf> [xsr cent of tfie mcmhcrship voted for Hie conciliation route. Union Pros Went D. A. Blackio suys tlie memlwrs were tired of see- iny the wages of other postal workers away from their own pay levels. The association more than half of whom aro in post of- fices across Canada in commu- nities ranging in population from to and some unincorporated areas. About of the offices havo one employee only. Wages depend upon length of service, volume of mail handled, and on commu- nity size. Postmasters classi- fied in 12 "groups" work with- out assistants and are paid be- tween to whilo those in six work in larger offices with as- sistants receive between 200 after three years service. The local postmaster Is also requested hy neighbors to help fill in government come IRK, family allowance, unemployment insur- and even to write letters occasionally. Mail ordering rom businesses go through the postmasters1 bands. Job security is a major griev- ance of the postmasters. They were angered when trie post of- fice under former Commu- nications Minister Eric Kierans carried out a policy of closing down more than rural of- fices. The association lost of their members, hut that was only one result, the leaders say. "The post office was the focal point of the community. People went there for passports, to pay taxes, and do one man said. When the post office closed, some communities lost their focal point and dis- appeared. Mr. Blackie said the union had a verbal commitment from Postmaster General Jeaiv Pierre Cote that no more of- fices would closed. Dut Mr. Cote is not running again in (he next election. AritAID OF MACII'NES The members are afraid that recent moves toward mecha- nization in the larger post of- uch ns the recen t In- troduction in Ottawa of mail- sorting even- tually mean replacement of fulltime postmasters with casu- als. The answer fo some of their e attain- ment of full puhlic servant status, with benefits, such as superannuation, which go along with it. The association is prepared .0 work closely with other postal unions on some Issues, ;ays Gaston Moutiier, national secretary of the union. But mcmlwrs feel that they face many problems unique to niral and small town offices. While (hc aggressiveness of hci masters' association will likely not match that of tho Dounci I nf Posl I Un ion.s at least in this round of bargain- ing, Ihcir move toward con- ciliation is a significant new step, "Twenty years ago the post- master provided a service to community and his neigh- bors. Now people are wonder- Ing why (hey are not paid a spokesman, aid. Our people are so loyal, they do the work anyway, and the government knows that." 121" 121 120 11.V TOURIST FRKDEKICTON (C P) Tourist.') who came lo Now Brunswick hy automobile In the summer nf .spt-nl more Itian million in Ihf province.
