The 33-country group deferred to larger inter- national organizations in hopes that solutions to press- ing problems might be found. The communique issued Thursday at the end of the two-day meeting said the ministers "emphasized the need for a one-world approach in economic matters." But it also noted that conditions for many countries have become worse despite previous inter- national pledges of help. The Commonwealth group regularly meets the week prior to the IMF and World Bank meetings, to be held this year in Washington. Finance Minister John Turner, as host the chairman of this year's Commonwealth session, made it clear at a news briefing that the Com- monwealth ministers would not take a joint position at the IMF meeting. Oil estimates are that the combined total of consuming countries this year will be a prime discussion topic. Price increases for oil, other essen- tial commodities and manufactured goods have had the greatest impact on poor countries. Arnold Smith, Com- monwealth secretary-general, has said some Commonwealth countries told him they will be bankrupted unless they receive urgent short-term help. Mr. Turner said Thursday the conference produced "a heightened awareness of the need to recycle surplus reference to the oil debt. Mr. Smith had noted earlier Wednesday that Nigerians complained about higher prices they had to pay for im- ports and said: "We've got to see their side of it too." Nigeria has frozen wages for four years. Nigeria and Canada both are oil producers but Nigeria is a major exporter and is a member of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. WASHINGTON (AP) President Ford convened his economic summit conference today and quickly found his administration's anti-inflation policies under attack from congressional Democrats. Ford predicted in his open- ing remarks that "we as Americans can and will win" the fight against inflation, and hinted at tax cuts for the poor so no group is "called upon to carry an unfair share of the load." Speaker Carl Albert of the House of Representatives, who followed Ford to the microphone, complained that some congressional recommendations for economic action had been overlooked in pre-summit con- ferences. Trial to open without ailing Nixon WASHINGTON (Reuter) The Watergate prosecutor's office is not counting on ailing Richard Nixon as a witness and is ready to proceed without him when the Watergate cover-up trial opens next week. An informed source in the prosecutor's office said the former president's is in hospital in California suf- fering from potentially dangerous blood it increasingly unlikely he will take the stand. But the prosecution is ready to go ahead anyway. "You've got to remember that when we brought this case, he was still president and the case was brought with the assumption that this man wouldn't be available to us as a the source said. "We're still prepared to han- dle it this way." Group formed to study damage to ozone layer Honduras recovery may take 'at least 2 years9 New York Times Service TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras The Honduran economy may require at least two years to recover from last week's hurricane, which caus- ed damages estimated at well over million, foreign economic experts said here yesterday. The torrential rains and high winds brought by Hurricane Fifi flooded and battered the fertile valleys of northern Honduras, which produce most of the country's agricultural output. Highways, railroads, bridges and some factories were also damaged, while thousands of peasant farmers lost their subsistence crops and personal belongings. The death toll has been es- timated at between and but there is no dis- puting the enormous impact of the hurricane on the tiny and fragile Honduran economy. The government has published a preliminary study of the economic damage of the disaster, calculating total material losses of between million and billion. Confirmed losses in the shape of government and private infrastructure and commer- cial crops are believed by economists to be about million. Foreign experts also calculate that, with ample foreign aid, reconstruction of the economy will require at least two years' efforts. The most serious single loss has been the nearly complete destruction of the banana plantations, which account for almost 50 per cent of the country's foreign exchange and employ about peo- ple in the hurricane-affected areas. Two large United States companies. United Brands and Standard Fruit, which own most of the banana production, have suffered enormously from the disaster. NAVY LEAGUE CADET CORPS Won't You Join Us?
