IgnoredT Wages Prices Both Climb WASHINGTON in dicated Thursday that both busi ness and labor are substantially ignoring President Eisenhowers repeated pleas that they exercise selfrestraint on and prices to curb inflation Wages keep on going up and so do the data indicate they have been going up more since January than before It was in January that Eisenhower told the nation in his annual economic report it was time for some labor management self denial Data available fronrtttegovern ment and reliable private sources show that wage rate settlements although they have been few have been

President Eisen TTowers old friend Soviet De fense Minister Georgi Zhukov appeared Thursday to be a dis tinct possibility Eisenhower himself said Wednesday that talks with Zhu kov might serve a useful

group of the Soviet Communist party indicate an in terest in following up the Presi dents friendly attitude toward talk then events could move fairly fast If Moscow seems cool toward the idea in contacts with 0 S diplomats there or perhaps contacts between the embassy and the State Department here the whole idea may die quietly In Moscow the Soviet agency Tass reported Eisenhowers statements
