Ford proposes surtaxERIM's move to Ain Arbor
(Contifnued from Pasge 1)
THE PRESIDENT'S program
also included proposals to in-
crease investment tax credits
for business, help the depressed
housing industry, boost food
production to bring prices down,
and voluntarily curb the use of
gasoline and other fuels.
"We must whip inflation now,"
the President told members of
the Senate and the House of
He called on Congress to take
the following steps:
-Impose the five per ;ent
surtax, to pay for job programs
for the poor and unemployed.
Under the plan a family of four
earning $20,000 would normally
have a regular tax of $4,380.
From that amount, $1,820-the
tax on the first $10,000-would
be subtracted eaving a balance
of $2,560, on which the surtax
would be $128. The estimated
yield from the surtax on cor-
porations and individuals would
be $4.7 billion.
-Increase t h e investment
credit tax from seven to 10 per
cent for business, and from four
to 10 per cent for utilities, to
encourage more productian. I
-Require new electric power
plants and converted plants to
use coal or nuclear energy in-
stead of oil and natural gas
-Increase government sup-
port for mortgages by $3 billion,
enabling the depressed canstruc-
tion industry to build 100,000
more new homes. This-amount
would be in addition to the $19
billion made available by the

CHARGING ERIM's separa-

"serving to remove its

griup viewed the possible move
as "an expansion of its activi-
ties and an intensification of
its relationship to the Univer-

an informal go-ahead on the
move which the institute re-
quested atlhough the approval
was not necessary..

ULLMAN SAID Ford seemed
"a bit unsure of his efforts to-
ward all-out economic policy,
but he did give us a fairly ade-
quate la"'dry list of problem
areas and some recommenda-
tions for solutions."
House B a n k i n g Chairman
Wright Patman (D-Tex.) said
Ford's message "lacked the
bold initiatives which are so
badly needed at this moment."
Ford "remains extremely cau-
tious in taking charge of mone-
tary policy," Patman said, and
until he "accepts responsibility
for monetary nolicy . . . there
is no real hope for meaningful
or lasting solutions toour very
serious economic troubles."
