Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD Saturday, June 2, 1973 Cool off economy Inflation control curbs urged WASHINGTON (CP) Pres- sure has begun to grow notice- ably on President Nixon and his chief economic advisers to cool off an overheated American economy and bring both in- flation and economic expansion under control before another re- cession is let loose. The latest voice calling for curbs is also the most signifi- Mills, the knowl- edgeable Democrat from Ar- kansas, whose chairmanship of the House of Representatives ways and means committee gives him nearly unmatched in- fluence on United States eco- nomic policy. Mills has been quietly ex- pressing dissatisfaction with the economy for some time. Now he has gone on to the floor ot tiie rare move for a man whose advice is usually given at committee sessions and private urge an immediate "hard hold" or freeze on wages and prices, as the first step in stabilizing inflation and ex- pansion.

He called the adminis- trations current voluntary con- trols a "total, colossal failure" and said he has "not one iota of faith' in their effectiveness against inflation. CRITICAL OF INACTION Even such a conservative economist as Pierre Rinfret, a New Yorker who actively backed Nixons re-election last year, has complained that the economy is "out of control" while the "administration re- fuses to act." Verbal warnings like these merely supplement other evi- dence. The soaring price of gold, the decline in the value of the American dollar and depression in the stock markets all point to a lack of confidence here and abroad in the administration's handling of the economy. There is no certainty, how- ever, that the Nixon advisers will take any unusual action. They are generally inclined to avoid tampering with market forces until compelled to do so. Herbert Stein, the efferves- cent chairman of the Presi- dent's Council of Economic Ad- visers, told a group of reporters this week: "the basic fact is that the American economy is functioning very well." And Treasury Secretary George Shultz reported a "ka- leidoscope of successes" at the same employ- ment, rapidly expanding in- vestment, labor-management peace, consumer prosperity. While the administration ac- knowledges concern about in- flation, running now at a rate of a too-rapid expansion in indus- QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg.

IGNORES WARNINGS Against the warnings of some private economists that rising food and energy costs will con- tinue to feed inflation and that economic expansion may "bust" next year, Stein pre- dicted a rate of in- flation by the end of 1973 and "normal" economic growth in 1974. Administration critics say the presidents advice is still com- ing largely from the same people who resisted any change in 1971 until Nixon had to adopt Draconian measures in August of that year. These critics fear the same scenario may be building up now, and such influential fig- ures as Wilbur Mills seem de- termined that the boom-ana- bust cycle will not be repeated. Car pollution study planned EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta Motor Association and the provincial government will sponsor a year-long study of emission pollutants in Alberta, Bernie Brown, president of the AMA, said today. exhaust-emission test- ing units will be put in location such as shopping centres, he said, and car owners will be provided with information on emission rates and vehicle pol- lution. The AMA. will process the re- sults of the tests and the depart- ment of the environment will analyse them. Environment Minister Bill Yurko said the program should increase public awareness on auto pollution. SUMMER'S MORE FUN AT THE COLLEGE Fun with the SUMMER HGSSEMAN PROGRAM!

Doctors' income plan approved MONTREAL (CP) Quebec medical specialists have ap- proved an income equalization plan which would transfer million annually from the high- est-paid specialists to the low- est-paid. The plan, appfoved by 5J3 of 25 groups in the Quebec Feder- ation of Medical Specialists, will be considered in medical- care negotiations with the provincial government in Only the highest paid income group eye, ear, nose 'and throat the low- opposed the plan; one because it would lose too much, the other because it would gain too little, Dr. Ray- mond Robillard said Thursday. Dr. Robillard, president of federation, said at a news con- ference transfers would be made on a sliding scale from to a year, based on individual income. A specialist earning would lose and one earn- ing would gain About of the province's specialists would be af- fected, half losing and half gaining. Other specialty groups at the top of the income scale include ophthalmologists, dermatolog- ists, orthopedists and allergists. At the bottom of the ladder are internists, neurologists, psy- chiatrists and kidney special- ists. Dr. Robillard also said the federation will attack the "high flyers" who earn excessive money. About 30 Quebec physi- cians earn more than annually. Amateur chemists linked in deaths MISSISSAUGA, Ont. (CP) Amateur chemists in Toronto are making a drug which has been involved in nine deaths in two months, a coroner's jury was told Thursday. The jury was told the drug, paramethoxyamphetaimine. (PMA) is being distributed from Toronto to the United States and other parts of Can- ada. Det.-Sgt. Christopher O'Toole told the jury: "Our information is that it is manufactured solely in this country and that there's no other source." He was testifying at an in- quest into the death of Peter Boyes, 22, who swallowed a powdered chemical mixed with water, thinking it was an hallu- cinogenic drug called MDA. Boyes collapsed in the wash- room of his home after taking the drug last March 16. He was taken to a local hospital in a violent condition and imme- diately transferred to another hospital, where he died about an hour later. Dr. D. W. Robinson, a tox> icologist at the Centre for Fo- rensic Sciences in Toronto, said that blood, liver and urine sam- ples from Boyes' body showed traces of PMA, but none of MDA. He said that of nine cases In- volving PMA deaths in the last two months, five occurred in Toronto and one each in Mis- sissauga, Hamilton, and Kitchener. FAULTS CREDIT SYSTEM ST. CATHARINES, Ont.
