Nixon proposes higher minimum
WASHINGTON (A') - The
Nixon administration yesterday
proposed that the minimum
wage be increased from $1.60 to
$2.30 per hour over a four-year
period but requested a slightly
lower hike for teenage workers.
The request for a lower in-
creased minimum wage for ten-
agers drew sharp criticism from
Rep. John Dent (D-Pa.), chair-
man of the House Labor Sub-
Secretary of Labor Peter Bren-
nan, who opposed a youth dif-

fore the Senate for his confir-
mation hearing last January

The youth differential issue
blocked an increase in the mini-

House approved a bill containing

bill without it. A compromise
could not be worked out.
Dent said the new proposal
was a step backward because it
would apply a lowerhrate to
workers under 20 while only
those under 18 would have been
affected by last year's bill.
H o w e v e r, the administra-
tion would limit the reduced
wage to 13weeks for 18 and 19-
year-olds and to 20 weeks for
workers under 18. The rate
would be 85 per cent of the mini-
mum for the older youth and 80
per cent for the younger ones.

work force, could be hired at the

WASHINGTON () - Atty. Gen.
Richard Kleindienst testified yes-
terday that under the constitution-
al separation of powers Congress
cannot compel anyone in the ex-
ecutive branch to testify or pro-
duce documents against the will
of the President.
The New York Daily News, in
this morning's editions, reports
that Senate investigators have
found a witness who can cor-
roborate convicted Watergate
conspirator James McCord's
administration officials includ-
ing former Atty. Gen. John
Mitchell to the Democratic
headquarters bugging. The news
said the Senate panel is not yet
ready to disclose the name of
would be struck down by the
Kleindienst said that under "the
sacred doctrine of the separation
of powers," the President was not
intended to be an instrument of
Congress and must have discre-
tion to determine what informa-
tion in the executive branch can
be made available..
The question also was raised of
whether a President could refuse
to permit an aide to testify if a
congressional committee was in-
vestigating criminal activities it
believed the aide had knowledge
even if he was not involved.
Kleindienst not only said a
President has this power, but also
told the committee that the pro-
per forum for the investigation
and prosecution of crimes is the
grand jury and the courts.
Kleindienst repeatedly empha-
sized that President Nixon, while
refusing to permit his aides to be
called before congressional com-
mittees for questioning, has said
they will appear if summoned by
a grand jury.
