'Nixon asks for lift
f gas price ceiling

TALKING PEACE in his address to the UN General Assembly yesterday, Henry Kissinger made his first major appearance since
becoming secretary of state last Saturday. He urged the nations to join the U.S. goal of "world community."
"U.S. does not seek dominance of
world affairs," Kissger assures

WASHINGTON 03) - President
Nixon ordered the Cost of Living
Council yesterday to clear the
way this week for an increase in
retail gasoline prices.
The President acted as spokes-
men for gasoline retailers said
scattered service station shut-
downs may spread unless dealers
get immediate relief from Phase
4 price controls.
THE COST OF LIVING Coun-
cil and its director, John Dunlop,
have been following a timetable
which would ha've allowed the at-
the-pump. price increase to go
into effect Oct. 2.
But White House spokesmen
Gerald Warren said the Presi-
dent "asked Dr. Dunlop to ex-
pedite this matter . . . and get
the decision out this week."
Dunlop responded that he
would, Warren added.
TlE PRESIDENTIAL spokes-
man would not discuss how large
the increase would be, but indi-
cations are that the council will
allow a hike of one or two cents
per gallon.
Service station operators who
are staging the shutdowns con-
tend they are unfairly squeezed
by Phase 4 regulations..
Their ceiling prices are com-
puted under a complex formula
which has forced them to absorb
increases in the wholesale price
of gasoline.
THE COUNCIL, moving to al-
low a pass-through of, higher
wholesale costs, asked service
operators on Sept. 14 to submit

data on their costs and profits by
today. Dunlop said Oct. .2 had
been targeted as, the effective
date for a retail price increase.
But, according to Warren,
Nixon relayed word through aides
that he wanted the timetable
speeded up in an effort to "clear
up whatever confusion remains in
the price of gasoline."
Warren skirted a question on
whether Nixon wanted the serv-
ice stations to stay open. "The
President would not attempt to
counsel dealers on how to oper-
ate their individual stations," he
said.
MEANWHILE, Warren said
Nixon is reviewing recommenda-
tions that he order a mandatory
allocation system for fuel this
winter, but added, "No decision
has been made."
There have been scattered
closings by independent gasoline
dealers to protest Phase 4 regu-
lations on gasoline.

UNITED NATIONS Secre-
tary of State Henry Kissinger as-
sured the nations of 'the world
yesterday that the United States
will not seek to dominate their
affairs in concert with the So-
viet Union or any other big pow-
er.
"My country remains com-
mitted to the goal of a world
community," Kissinger promised.
the UN General Assembly .in his
debut as secretary. -
SPEAKING TO an attentive
audience fo foreign ministers and
their deputies, " Kissinger also
proposed that the 135-member
nations agree on peacekeeping
,guidelines for swift and effective
action in future crises.
In his ;3,000-word address, the
Secretary of State, who received
an ovation from his capacity au-
dience, said "The vocabulary of
suspicion" persisted, even in the
UN, despite the end of many of'
the Cold War confrontations.
He urged the assembly "to
move with us from detente to co-
operation, from co-existence to
community." The U.S., he said,
would spare no effort .to ease
tensions further and to move to-
wards greater stability.
IN HIS SPEECH, Kissinger said
the peacekeeping guidelines are
necessary because in recent
years "we found ourselves locked
in fruitless debates about the in-
auguration of peacekeeping op-
erations and over the degree of
control the Security Council
would exercise over peacekeep-
ing machinery, an impasse
which insured only that perma-

nent peacekeeping machinery
would never come into being."
Kissinger said that even though
the United States has broken
through two decades of estrange-
ment with Communist China and
ended many cold war confronta-
tions with the Soviet Union, "even
in this room the vocabulary of
suspicion persists."
"Relaxation of tensions is jus-
tified by some as merely a tac-
tical interlude before renewed
struggle," Kissinger said. "Oth-
ers suspect the emergence of a
two-power condominium."'
HE SAID THE truth is that the
United States has no desire for
domination and will oppose any.
nation that chooses that path.
"We have not been asked to _par-
ticipate in a condominium; we
would reject such an appeal if it
were made,".he promised.
Kissinger also proposed that
the United Nations organize a
world food conference next year
"to harness the efforts of all na-

Council for Japan. The five per-
manent members of the 15-na-

KISSINGER'S SPEECH to the
28th General Assembly contained
no hold U. S. initiative for break-
ing the impasse in the Middle

Its significance rested more
in its tone, particularly in reas-
surances that "the- United States
will never be satisfied with a

world of uneasy truces, of off-
setting blocks, of accommoda-
tions of convenience."
Kissinger plans to spend three
days in New York. While there

"Jules Feiffer, a satir-
cal sharp-shooter with
a deadly aim, glares
balefully at the mean-
ingless violence in
American life, and
opens fire on it in
LITTLE MURDERS."
-New. York Post
"Jules Feiffer has writ-
ten a satire that
scorches neatly every-
thing it touches. It
blisters the hell out of
sex, marriage, religion,
psychiatry, 1 a w, and
last but far from least,
a troubled American
family struggling for
survival in the world
wild with violence."

LITTLEMURDER-S
ALAN ARKIN in his directorial debut has brought to the. screen the two act play written by Jules feiffer.
The film is a parody, of the Newquist Family and their willingness to "hang-in" world of muggers,
creep callers, choking air and hidden assasins. LITTLE MURDERS uses comedy and satire as a catharsis
for the evil in the world.
