New Newf President has decided to continue and price controls in 1973, "possibly in modified form. and other presidential de- cisions on the aati inflation front were disclosed by George P. Sbaliz, the secretary of the treasury and the president's spokesman on economic matters. Ibe other measures indode a freeze on federal fairing aod promotkm until toe end of Jan- tary and a freeze during the wbole of 1973 02 the salaries of "executive level" federal em- ployees, incMisg members of Congress aod the judiciary. TOK following decisions were disdosed: The president -win ask Congress to ezteai the ez- piriBg next April 30, that gives for price, reot and oGier controls. Shtiiiz did act specify how long an ezies- ton the president vtin ask. in be early "consul- Utioos" with business, labor, the governmental bodies such as the pay board and price com- Enssjon that have administered controls, consumer groups and others in an effort to find the '-'most effective" system of con- trols for next year. That issue, Shuliz said, is not "whether" there would be controls but bow to improve them. The president "cow feels sure" that he can hold total government spending 5s the current fiscal year, DOW almost half completed, to his target figure of CSG-biffion, though no specific budgetary decisions announced. Toe president has also de- cided that he can send Con- gress next month a budget for fiscal year 1374 wbose spend- ing total will be "within fu2 revenues." T5ss is the hypothetical figure of revenues that would be produc- ed if the economy were operat- ing with raie of fcrar per cent, am is estimated tsaofficiany for fis- cal year 1974 as between 1267- bJIBon tad There will be DO salary in- creases next year for those at the "executive level" in the federal government, including members of Congress and the judiciary. For members of the executive braoch of govern- ment, this order effectively freezes salaries of about 000 or more. Pay of lower- level civil service employees will rise Bert year according to a formula established by law. There will be a freeze oa hiring by the federal govero- 1 meet until the end of January, j with only a few exceptions such las postal workers needed for j the Christmas season. After January, employment levels will be fized by the decssiocs made in connection with tbe Soew budget These decisions, Sfauliz said, j reflect the president's stroag 1 determination to continue the fight against inflation-" la a jspedai presidential statement Jannoondng the freeze on fed- eral hiring, Nixon said, "no programs, no matter bow attractive they may be in- dividually, can have a higher priority than the protection of the purchasing power of all the people."
