WASHINGTON (AP) - Inflation
gave consumers their worst pounding
in three months in September as costs
rose 0.8 per cent and pushed the index
of retail prices to almost double what it
was 11 years ago, the government
The September price rise also out-
paced wage gains during the month,
reducing workers' purchasing power by
0.3 per cent, the fifth monthly decline
this year. Purchasing power has'
declined by 3.3 per cent in the past 12
WHITE HOUSE press secretary Jody
Powell said the report was
discouraging and "underscores the im-
portance of maximum cooperation and
support for the President's inflation
plan." Powell was referring to the new
wage and price guideline program Car-
ter announced to the nation Tuesday
Powell revealed that Carter held an
hour-long meeting yesterday with
Alfred Kahn, the newly-appointed
chairman of the Council on Wage and
Price Stability, and with Barry Boswor-
th, executive director of the council and
Charles Schultze, chairman of the
Council of Economic Advisers.
"The purpose of the meeting was to
review the organizational setup for Mr.
Kahn's operation and to discuss plans,
follow-on plans for the President's anti-
flation program," Powell said.
THE LABOR Department reported
higher prices for gasoline, housing and
college tuition contributed to the Sep-
tember price surge, which if continued
for a year would mean an overall in-
flation of 10 per cent.
Prices had increased at a more
moderate 0.6 per cent in August and 0.5
per cent in July.
The September increase raised the
overall increase in prices during the
first nine mnths of 1978 to 7.1 per cent,
compared with 6.8 per cent during all of
last year. The annual rate of increase
for the first nine months was 9.6 per
CARTER administration officials
admitted it was unlikkely the inflation
rate for the year-will be held to even the
eight per cent level and that was the
latest in a continuing series of wor-
sening inflation forecasts by the ad-
WIlliam Cox, deputy chief economist
for the Commerce.Department, said in-
flation for the year may be between
eight per cent and nine per cent.
"It appears to be running above eight
per cent," he said.
IN ANOTHER report signaling
possible bad news for Americans, the
Carter administration said economic
growth next year may be between three
per cent and 3.5 per cent, down from
earlier forecasts and close to the point
where unemployment may rise.
Economists say the nation's econmy
must expand about four per cent yearly
to keep unemployment from worsening.
The unemployment rate is currently
about six per cent, but the new forecast
said it should be in "the neighborhood
of six per cent" next year, indicating it
The forecast for slower economic
growth in 1979 is the consequence of
reduced federal spending and higher in-
terest rates which are being used to
help combat inflation. The forecast for
economic growth this year is for 3.75
per cent, compared with growth of 4.1
per cent last year.
IN YET ANOTHER economic
development yesterday, the Labor
Department issued a study showing
that major labor contracts negotiated
during the first nine months of 1978
gave workers first-year wage and cost-
of-living increases of more than eight
per cent. These increases are well
above the voluntary seven per cent
wage and fringe benefit guideline con-
tained in Carter's new anti-inflation
Business is being asked to hold price
increases to around 5.75 per cent in
The most worrisome aspect of the
September price report was that rising
food costs could no longer bear most of
the responsibility for the overall in-
crease in inflation. Food prices rose 0.5
per cent, the lowest of any major com-
ponent of the consumer price index.
The chief culprit last month was
housing costs, which rose 0.9 per cent.
The actual cost of owning a home jum-
ped 1.3 per cent and rents rose 0.8 per
cent, the biggest increase of the year in

BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) - The
European Common Market's energy
commissioner said yesterday that
rising energy consumption in the
United States must 4be stopped -
perhaps by higher consumer prices on
oil and gasoline - to protect the world
against another price rise by oil-
In an unusually blunt statement,
Guido Brunner, said any increase in
American use of oil would be an "ex-
tremely unfortunate development" that
also could have severe consequences
for the dollar, which has been taking a
severe beating on the world's money
BRUNNER, A West German, urged
the United States to add "something" to
its energy conservation program before
oil ministers of the Organization -of.
Petroleum Exporting Countries open
their next price-fixing meeting Dec.. 16
in Abu Dhabi.
OPEC oil ministers said after their
June meeting there definitely would be
a price increase in 1979, but no amount
has been set. The current price for a 42-
gallon barrel of oil is $12.70. The price
was frozen at that level at OPEC's
meeting last December and again in
However, OPEC member countries
have been complaining that income
from oil, which is priced in dollars, is
shrinking as the value of the dollar con-
tinues to fall. One oil expert, former
Saudi Arabian Oil Minister Sheik Ab-
dullah Turaki, predicted an increase of
15 per cent.
IT IS ESTIMATED that for every five
per cent increase in the price of crude
oil, gasoline at the pump in the United
States goes up half a cent.
"In the short term, there is no reason
for an increase in prices," Brunner said
in the first direct comment by a Com-
mon Market official on the OPEC
Meeting. He said falling profits was not
enough to justify a price hike.
Brunner indicated that if the United
States showed it was sincere about
saving energy, the oil producers might
delay a price rise. He said if an effec-
tive U.S. energy policy helps the stan-
ding of the dollar on world foreign ex-
change markets, this would
automatically increase oil producers'
revenues from oil.
BRUNNER SAID that at the Western
economic summit in Bonn, West Ger-
many in July, President Carter
promised to cut American oil consum-
ption by 2.5 million barrels per day by
"At present, there is no sign that they
are moving in that direction," Brunner
said. "Now it looks as if next year there
will be an increase of roughly two per
cent, which is the opposite develop-
ment. This is very disquieting."
"Some change in prices," in the
United States is necessary, Brunner
said. He hinted that since Congress is
now in recess, Carter should take action
himself to raise prices.
The Common Market commissioner
said there has been no increase in
energy consumption since 1973 in the
Common Market countries - Britain,
France, West Germany, Italy, Ireland,
Denmark, Belgium, the Netherlands,
and Luxembourg. The Common Market
nations, boosted by Britain's growing
North Sea oil production, have pledged
to reduce their dependence on imported
energy to 50 per cent by 1985.
European countries have used speed
limits and extensive energy-saving
campaigns since the 1973 oil crisis to
cut petroleum consumption. Consumer
prices are much higher than in the
United States. Gasoline now costs about
$2.01 per gallon in West Germany and
$1.30 per U.S. gallon in Britain. In the
United States, average gasoline prices
range from 62.5 cents to 69 cents.

contact with several universities which
may involve an exchange of perhaps
two to three faculty members and ten
students per university, possibly
more," Eisley said.
"NO FORMAL arrangements have
been made - this is only our initial con-
tact," he added, "but we are very in-
terested and hope that something will
Eisley also said that no discussion of
the economics of such a program has
taken place, nor, the possible com-
plications involving the respective
Eisley noted that University Vice-
President for Academic Affairs Harold
Shapiro had been in touch with officials
in Washington about the matter, but
Shapiro was unavailable for comment
"THE CHINESE are in a period of
rebuilding their universities after a
period in which education has not
flouished," Eisley said. "They are now
looking to open up contacts with the
"A major thing to be determined is
the academic background of the
students who will come here. That is,
we will need to know if the students will
meet our pre-requisites to determine
where in our program they will fit.
"But I see no reason why we
shouldn't go ahead and start to make
the final arrangements," Eisley asser-
PROF. ALBERT Feuerwerker,
director of the Center for Chinese
Studies, described the activities of the
delegation as simple shopping around
for a good bargain in an America'n
"The formal position of the Chinese
government," Feuerwerker said, "in
the next period of time is to send a large
number of scientists and educators
abroad." He added that exact figures
are unknown, but that as many as 10,000
people may be involved.
"They will be sent to Europe, Japan
and the U.S. for the purpose of being
trained," the director said. "The
reason is that their country has a great
shortage of qualified personnel due to
the closing of the universities there
during the Cultural Revolution."
WITHIN THIS framework, Feuer-
werker noted, talks have been going on
in Washington about the possibilities of
such an exchange in absence of formal
relationships between the two nations.
"The quid pro quo of the situation is
that American students will be accep-
ted by the Chinese," said Feuerwerker.
At this time students for such a
program are being chosen. through a
national competition program. Ten
students will leave for China by
January of next year, followed by fifty
others in the fall of 1979.
Tieh-yun Chen, a member of the
Chinese delegation, is an alumnus of
the University's College of Engineer-
ing, class of 1951.
