Inflation hit poor most economists say Washington AP Congressional economists say Inflation in 1973 was harder on the nations poor than other segments of the economy And said the report by the Joint Economic Committee 1974 holds no prospect of im provement There is no indication at this time that the rate of inflation will moderate in 1974 and con sequently the real purchasing power of consumers is likely LO continue to decline the report said The congressional economists said that a middleincome family earning in 1973 had to spend more to keep the same standard of living ex perienced in 1972 Two items alone food prices up and housing costs at more than the previous year accounting for more than half the total rise the report said The report also noted that middleincome families paid 15 per cent more in taxes and 31 per cent more in Social Securi ty Simon says shortage real Washington AP Federal Energy Director William E Simon today assured Congress that the fuel shortage is real despite doubts about gome oil industry statistics Simon said the oil companies reports example stocks on hand et the end of the year should not be interpreted as meaning there is no shortage The favorable inventory position is attributed to an unusually mild winter conservation efforts and some shipments of the Arab countries despite the embargo he said However Simon told a joint economic subcommittee as of Dec 29 the American Petroleum Institute reported we have only slightly over 30 days supply of the major petroleum products The shortage caused by a fully effective embargo will quickly reduce these to dangerously low levels unless we act quickly to reduce de mand and equitably allocate the Despite doubts about industry statistics available supplies Simon conceded the govern ment lacks an adequate system for collecting energy data and must rely on what is provided by the oil companies But he said that in the next few weeks the Nixon administration with the help of Congress will set up a comprehensive collection pro cedure Simon said legislation may be needed to enforce stiff reporting requirements for the petroleum industry and Congress should also move to require reporting by the coal and uranium in dustries Sen William Proxmire D Wis called todays hearing because of what he said is widespread concern about the validity of energy statistics Most of the governments statistics on petroleum supplies are provided weekly by the in dustrys American Petroleum Institute Simon said the US Bureau of Mines supplies similar data monthly on a voluntary basis by most petroleum refining com panies We have already completed preliminary crosschecks of these reporting systems and have found them to be reasonably accurate and quite consistent over long periods of time Simon told the subcom mittee But he said the API figures do not include statistics on petroleum inventories held by someoneother than refiners and major terminal operators Fuel oil prices rise no real shortage yet 3judge panel Disbarment of Agnew urged Annapolis AP A special threejudge panel recommended today that former Vice President Spiro T Agnew be disbarred from the practice of law in Maryland The three Circuit Court udges said that Agnews evasion of in come tax acknowledged in a noncontest plea was deceitful and dishonest and strikes the heart of the basic object of the legal

of State Henry A Kissingers troop pull back plan is unsatisfactory and Egypt is giving him counter proposals to take back to Israel We are giving him our own map and language Foreign Minister Ismail Fahmy told newsmen He spoke shortly after Kissin ger said Egypt and Israel agree with his efforts to work out a troop disengagement plan for the Suez front and that nego tiations had progressed to the detailed drafting stage Fahmys comments indicated the disagreement revolved around some final details and he complimented Kissinger for playing a constructive role Your secretary of state when he sticks his fingers in something he generally brings it to a successful conclusion Egyptian Foreign Minister Ismail Fahmy told newsmen I taink he will this time Sitting oa a sunlit veranda at Aswan in upper Egypt Kiss inger told the newsmen that his shuttling mediation talks with Egyptians and Israelis are the toughest I have been in He and President Anwar Sadat set up joint teams of draftsmen to work on the detailed language of an accord to separate Israeli and Egyptian forces along the uneven and ex plosive Suez Canal ceasefire lines left from the October Mid dle East war I think both
