Chrysler. cuts car pricersa

U.S. ambassador Ball

- 'Aft lwfll%


DETROIT (P)-Chrysler Corp.
drastically slashed yesterday its
previously announced 1969 auto
price increases which had drawn
criticism from President Johnson.
The Chrysler rollback brought
its new price tag increases vir-
tually into line with those of its
two major competitors, General
Motors and Ford Motor Co.
It marked the third year in a
row Chrysler led off the industry
new car pricing parade with in-
creased prices, only to roll them
back when GM and Ford came
along later with smaller price
4 Chrysler figured its original
boost at an average of $84 per
car in the list price of the new
1969 Chrysler line. The revised
figure came out at $52 a car, close
to the $49 figure announced by
General Motors and For'd's $47 in-
crease in its list price per car.
* The list price does not inglude
federal excise taxes, dealer new

car preparation and handling,
state and local taxes and shipping
Chrysler's brief statement tsn-
nouncing its revised price . list
made no mention of why the ac-
tion had been taken. The cut-
back had been regarded in auto-
motive circles as a foregone con-
clusion since GM and Ford cane
up with smaller hikes.
American Motors is slated to
announce its new car prices on
Chrysler said, "Most of thel
prices announced last week have
been reduced and some increased
to 'maintain, a competitive posi-
tion in each car line. Some prices
of optional equipment also have
been revised."
John Riccardo, Chrysler group
vice president, U.S. and Canadian
automotive, said the prices "re-
flect only part of the substan-
tially increased costs or material
and labor."

The firm also made additional
revisions in its warranty program
which was changed Sept. 11. The
1968 model warranty included a
five-year or 50,000 mile guaranty
for the engine and power train
components and 24 months or
24,000 miles for the rest of the
car, exclusive of tires which are
covered in a separate warranty
with the tire manufacturer.
Chrysler on Sept. 11 cut the
latter warranty clauses to 12
months or 12,000 miles.
In another change Thursday, it
said that the second owner of a
car could get the unused portion
of the five year, 50,000 mile war-
ranty if he registered the car, and
paid a $25 fee and ifAthe car had
been properly maintained. The
first $25 of such warranty work
would be paid by the second
Chrysler board chairman Lynn
A. Townsend, asked in a recent
interview, about the possibility
that Chrysler might have to make
a third consecutive price rollback,
said only that Chrysler enjoyed
being the first of the new cars
into the marketplace and , the
ability to gets its '69 sales under
way before other competitors got
into the marketplace:

"' WASHINGTON .IP) -President
Johnson announced yesterday the
resignation of George W. Ball as
U.S. ambassador to the United
Nations and named Washington
Post editor James Russell Wiggins
to succeed him.
Ball said he plans to join the
campaign forces of Vice President
Hubert H. Humphrey, the Demo-
cratic nominee for president.
He will become the foreign af-
fairs advisor for the campaign
"I have taken this step so that
I may devote all my time and
energy between now and Nov. 5
to help assure the election of
Hubert Humphrey and the defeat
of Richard Nixon," Ball said in a
statement issued at the State De-
partment simultaneously with
Johnson's announcement.
Johnson called reporters to the
White House Cabinet room to give
them the news personally-and
- he sought to make plain that Ball
was not quitting out of disagree-
ment with administration policy.
"I have accepted with reluc-
tance the resignation," Johnson
said. .
"As you see from his announce-
ment of his resignation, it has
nothing to do with policy-but
with politics."
Ball, 58, was a long-time un-

Kennedy administration and the
Segarlier years of the Johnson ad-

State Department, Ball gained a
e reputation for arguing within ad-

cies that differed from the posi-

r signments once policy had been

40-year-rule of Portugal.
Salazar, 79, was in an oxygen,

regarded as slim.

sumer price index up three-tenths
of one per cent to 121.9.
The figure means it cost $12.19
last month to buy the family
goods and services that cost $10
in the 1957-59 period on which
the index is based.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics
said last month's rise in living
costs more than wiped out August
wage gains of some 45 million
rank and file workers.
"It would appear that the con-
sumer price index will continue
to go up" the rest of the year,
said Asst. Commissioner Arnold
Chase, making it almost certain
1968 will wind up with a total rise
of 4 per cent or more.
While this would be the-steepest
climb in living costs in 17 years,
it is far less than the 8 per cent
jump in 1951 before the govern-
ment clamped on wage and price
controls. There has been no sign
the government contemplates,any
similar controls now.
In major price categories meas-
ured by the government, housing
and clothing rose five-tenths of
one per cent each last month,
food climbed four-tenths of one
per cent, medical care and recre-
ation were up three-tenths each
and transportation two-tenths.
