Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta U.S. president optimistic inflation can be licked WASHINGTON President Ford told a news conference -Wednesday he hopes for some meaningful reduction in the rate of infla- .tion in the United States by early next year and'does not believe the country is suffer- a recession.. Ford also declared that: his wife's recent cancer surgery, "I have seen nothing to change" his in- clination to run for election in 1976. there is a reason" for him to -meet with Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev before a'planned 1975 Washington summit meeting, "I will certainly consider it."

Ford fielded questions with ease during the half-hour ses- sion, making a departure from the customary news conference format to en- courage reporters to >ask follow-up questions. Responding to the first question of the afternoon, Ford said: "I do not think the United States is in a recession. We do have economic problems, but it is a very mixed situation." If Congress and the people respond to the economic program he unveiled Tuesday, Ford said, he is convinced "We can have, hopefully early in 1975, some meaningful reduction in the rate of inflation." In the past, Ford has talked about conquering rising prices by mid-1976 and Alan Green- span, chairman of his Council of Economic Advisers, has said it might take until 1977. In answering a question, Ford defended his recommen- dation, sharply assailed in Congress, that former presi- dent Nixon be provided with for a transition period. "The amount that was sub- mitted on this said Ford, "was roughly com- parable to the amounts that have been made available to other presidents who were leaving office." The economy dominated the session, with Ford arguing that his proposed surtax would affect only 28 per cent of all taxpayers and would income that would stimulate the slumping housing industry and assist'those hardest hit by inflation. In his' Tuesday address on the economy, Ford endorsed a tax revision bill pending before the House ways and means committee, but acknowledged Wednesday he does not necessarily embrace' all its features. Regarding Rockefeller's gift to Kissinger, Ford said: "I have been assured that every tax that could be applied has been paid, and that all legal problems involv- ing that particular case were solved satisfactorily.

(touch jwwJ flews Housing grants promised OTTAWA (CP) Prune Minister Trudeau refused Wednesday to indicate when the government will begin making grants promised during the election campaign to first-time buyers of moderately-priced homes. Questioned in the Commons, Mr. 'Trudeau would say only that the program will be im- plemented sometime during the expected four-year life of the new Parliament. The Sept. 30 throne outlining government legislative plans, indicated that action'would be taken on the program during the first session of new Parliament. Mr. Trudeau's reply Wednesday brought im- mediate criticism from Eldon. Woolliams the main Conser- vative housing critic. He'said the prime minister has a responsibility to make clear whether the program, announced in June, was mere election puffery or was an- nounced sincerely by the gov- ernment. Mr. Trudeau repeated that all housing promises, including the grants plan, will be adopted during the full term of Parliament. The plan would make grants available to first-time buyers of homes falling within specified price ranges in vari- ous cities. Different price ranges would apply in different areas. The grants would not be available to per- sons who had purchased a home previously or those buy- ing homes with previous owners. The housing issue was rais- ed initially by Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield who renewed demands for new government measures to increase housing starts. Starts in urban areas have dropped alarmingly and addi- tional government action is needed, he said. Mr. Trudeau, repeating ear- lier statements by Urban Af- fairs Minister Barnett Dan- son, said the housing situation is under serious con- sideration.. But there was nothing new to Jerry Grier Broadview) said the situation is aggravated by a serious lumber industry crisis. Mr. Trodeau said lumber in- dustry problems are caused mainly by weakening export markets. Nearly two-thirds of all lumber is exported, he said. Only one-third was used in Canada and only one-third of this portion went into domestic housing.

Burris and Johnson were ar- rested Nov. after land- ing an airplane in Cuba with Cuban visa or U.S. passport. They were'charged with taking drugs into Cuba, but the two senators said the pair claimed there were no drugs on board the plane and that they landed in Cuba because of a fuel shortage. Both have one year remaining on their jail sentences. There are eight American political prisoners in Cuban jails, the officials said, and an unknown number who were arrested after hijacking planes to Cuba from the United States. J.C.
