Washington President Ford probably will defer most major actions on the economy until next year trying In the meantime to restore con fidence by demonstrating that the government is in control of developments L William Seid man a key adviser said to day Seidman who is directing for the Sept 2728 summit con ference on the economy said he expects the President to lay outi fundamentals of his economic policies in Januarys budget and State of the Union message The real action period will be next year Seidman told a group ofnewsmen Nevertheless he said Ford will watch urgent problems day by day and will act even before the sum mit If he feels action is necessary in particular areas Emergency aid to housing is one area under close study for possible early action Seidman said Some administration sources had said that assistance to electric utilities also could come quickly but Seidman in dicated that will wait at least until summit Asked whether a crisis of confidence may erupt if the President waits until next year to lay out an economic program Seidman acknowledged that confidence always is a factor in the decisions of businessmen investors and consumers A key to confidence is whether the government itself j appears to be and is in control he said and the ability of the government to control its own budget is one example of what can build confidence Instead of rushing into action he said the administration believes patience and con sistency are vital to economic policy Consistency of policy helps the public make decisions with more confidence than if policy shifts erratically he said Seidman indicated that a main objective of the summit con ference is to develop public understanding of policy and thus to assure the widespread sup port heeded to permit con sistency Credited with taking a forthright approach to national problems by AFLCIO President George Meany President Ford tield another round of talks to day with k e y economic ad visers Ford met in late morning with his economic counselor Kenneth Rush Chairman Alan Greenspan of the Council of Economic Advisers and L Economic Advisers and Seid man Ford also received some unofficial economic advice Monday when Meany in a Labor Day radio address over CBS urged the President to lay out for the public what Meany said were the hard facts of in flation recession and unemployment Meany said the past five and a half years of deceit and deviousness have caused peo ple to blame government not business and labor for the nations economic woes But that will change under Fords administration Meany said Straight talk is this Presidents long suit and that is what the country and her people need he said Meany president of the AFL CIO went on to assert that the current inflation is not caused byexcessive demand and therefore that budget cuts high interest rates and tight money which might be ap propriate weapons against ex cessive demand inflation simply will not work Instead the Ford administra tion should seek to increase home construction end exports of scarce commodities create a public service employment pro gram and close tax loopholes Meany urged in his broadcast address Another labor leader Arnold Miller president of the United Mine Workers met with Ford Monday and promised his unions support for the inflation conference Five job corpsmen die in highway crash Five

to provide buyers with cash refunds valued at about million and replacements in other GAC developments for lots valued at million The refund provisions were attacked as too meager by the Iowa attorney general and the interstate land sales office of the LS Department of Housing and Urban Development The HUD agency which ad ministers federal laws requiring registration and full disclosure by land developers estimated the million in cash refunds would be inconsequential com pared to the million lost over the last six years by GAC customers who stopped paying on their property The FTC provisions
