duly noted the economists signed a resolution supporting the legislative pack age at a daylong conference Monday in preparation for President Fords economic summit conference Friday and Saturday The action was the nearest thing to a consensus on antiin flation measures discussed at the presummit meeting But two other economists in attendance J Kenneth Galbraith of Harvard University and Nat Goldfinger of the AFLCIO refused to sign the resolution They said the proposals were irrelevant to fighting inflation The 22item package proposed by Thomas Moore of the Hoover Institution included Repeal of the meat import act Repeal of import quotas on dairy and other farm prod ucts Reduction or elimination of entry barriers into trucking Allowing licensed airlines to operate in any market and per mitting them to withdraw from unprofitable or undesired mar kets resale price maintenance to encourage competition at the retail level Economist Walter W Heller of the University of Minnesota

A Kissinger and Treas Top consuming nations fo meef this weekend my Secretary William E Si mon Kissinger and Simon along with the President have spear headed a highly vocal and highly publicized verbal attack on the economic nationalism of the oil producers The speeches have been concentrated In the past week and have been deliv ered in such highvisibility for ums as the United Nations and the World Energy Conference now In progress in Detroit The Camp David meeting by contrast is being planned in as much secrecy as is possible to confer upon a meeting of rank ing public officials of five ma jor industrial powers Britain France West Germany and Japan in addition to the U S Word of the meeting leaked out in London and in Washington from the Japanese and none of the participants are denying that it will take place For the record however U S officials are refusing to comment According to diplomatic sources the probable agenda for he meeting is a pointbypoint reflection of Kissingers pro gram for combatting the cartel tactics of oil producers The program includes fuel conser vation emergency sharing of supplies in any future oil em bargo establishment of 90day reserve supplies counteracting price increases and developing a mechanism for ther western banking system to cope with the Reassessment asked of antipollution rules Detroit AP Several experts at the World
