Higher taxes are an outside possibility for later this year if prices and wages con- tinue to rise. That possibility becomes less remote when the wage situation is reviewed. New wage con- tracts have averaged nine per cent higher this year, threaten- ing to put inflationary pressures beneath prices. Contract nego- tiations involve twice as many workers this year as last. The biggest difference be- tween the U.S. and Canadian approaches is in the attitude to- ward credit. The government of Prime Minister Trudeau has proposed consumer credit con- trols and legislation is planned for June. In the U.S., the Nixon admin- istration has carefully avoidef the subject of credit restraints or voluntary limitations on prices and wages. It hopes in stead to reduce inflation through a restrictive Federa Reserve policy, by limitations on government spending and by taxation. The Nixon policy has slowei economic expansion, but tht slowdown has produced little ef feet on rising retail prices. With the economy facing enor- mous pressures for addiUona spending, and with consumers said to be ready to spend again, some economists speculate thai it may not be long before the Nixon administration reaches some of the same conclusions as the Trudeau government.

The wife said she didn't re- port it out of fear. Fouquet was convicted o! irst-degree murder. In court for sentencing, he made a final try at saving him- self, saying he was convicted on perjured testimony. Jeffrey, he said, may have poisoned him- self with chemicals.
