National
Milki price hike
WASHINGTON - President
Carter's decision to raise milk
price supports could boost the
retail cost of milk by 6.2 cents-'
per gallon and butter by 10
cents a pound, Agriculture De-
partment analysts report.
Agriculture Secretary Bob
Bergland, who Announced the
price support increases yester-
day, described the consumer
costs as modest.
Unless the government hikes
price supports to dairy farm-
ers, Bergland said, milk pro-
duction could decline so much
that consumers would face sub-
stantially higher prices in the
future.
"The question is whether or
not we'll have an adequate sup-
ply of milk for the consumers
of this nation," he told report-
ers after announcing Carter's
decision.
Bergland said the decision to
raise milk price supports to $9
per 100 pounds was based on
campaign promises and the
fact that dairy farmers are cur-
rently caught in a profit
squeeze.

Milk prices paid to farmers
have dropped 8 per cent since
October, Bergland said. At the
same time, he noted, hay and
feed costs have risen because
of the drought and lack of re-
serve pastures.'o
Bergland called the decision
to raise supports from $8.26 to
$9 per 100 pounds "a signal to
the dairy producers in the Unit-
ed States that we want them
to stay in business." He said
the level would be reviewed in
six months.
Labor pains
WASHINGTON - The Labor
Department, which is in the
business of helping other em-
ployers and unions with their
labor problems, has hired an
outside labor consultant at $50.
an hour to straighten out the
department's stormy relations
with its own employes.
Labor Secretary Ray Mar-
shall said yesterday he has
"engaged" a firm to represent
the department in contract
talks with Local 12 of the Am-
erican Federation of Govern-
ment Employes.
"I'm concerned that we
ought to be a model ourselves
for collective bargaining," Mar-
shall said.
The local, which represents
the department's 5,000 em-
ployes in Washington, has been
without a contract for more
than a year, largely because of
a dispute over promotions.
Marshall said the consulting
firm not only will help nego-
tiate a new contract but will
create "a mechanism for ad-
ministering" the new pact once
signed, and will help train de-
partment personnel responsi-
ble for enforcing it.
President Carter at a Cabi-
net meeting last week suggest-
ed that too much reliance was
being placed on private con-
sultants and suggested that de-
partment heads begin keeping
track of the number of outside
consultants they hire and the
money spent for such activities..
Marshall inherited the prob-
lem from his predecessors -
John Dunlop and W. J. Usery
Jr., both regarded as among
the foremost labor peacemak-
ers in the country.

'State
Kidnap reward
L A N S I N G - Triggered
by the kidnapping-murders of
six Oakland, County children
and the disappearance of a
seventh, legislation was intro-
duced in the state House yes-
terday to create a $1 million
reward fund.
The measure, sponsored by
Rep. David Campbell (R-Roy-
al Oak), would pay at least
$50,000 each to persons provid-
ing information leading to the
arrest and conviction of those
killing, kidnaping or sexually
assaulting children under age
16.
"People are scared," Sheriff
Johannes Spreen said yesterday
as a search continued for an
11-year-old boy who disappear-
ed in an area where the six
other children have been ad-
ducted and slain in just over a
year.
Timothy King of Birmingham,

was last seen March 16 when he
left home for a neighborhood
store to buy candy. Oakland
County authorities began a
search for the boy last week,
but despite hundreds of tips and
a special 300-member taskr
force, the child still is missing.
Authorities have compiled a
psychological profile and an ar-
tist's sketch of the suspect they
are seeking. The profile de-
scribes the suspect as a white
male, 20 to 35 years old, well
educated and intelligent. He is
a white collar worker, the pro-
file continues, who lives or
works in Oakland County and
has a job that allows him free-
dom of movement.

Why too much
regulation may
rule you out
How would you like to be forced to
get permission from 379 separate
Government agencies before you could
work? That's what Armco has to do.
We think you could hear a similar story
from nearly any large company in
America-if the regulatory paperwork
leaves them any time to talk to you.
Excessive regulation threatens your
chance of getting a job.
Most of us agree that the goals
regulation seeks are important. Clean
air and water. Job safety. Equal rights
at work. The problem is the way
Government people now write and
apply specific rules to reach those
goals. Too often, the rules don't really
do any good. They just tie companies
up in knots as they try to comply.
Federal regulations now take up a
twelve-foot shelf of textbook size
volumes printed in small type. 13,589
more pages were written last year
alone. And Washington is more than
matched by a growing army of state
and local regulators.
Nobody really knows how much
money regulation costs. Some say it's
up to $40 billion a year. Companies
paying that bill can't use that money
for jobs. A new job, on the average,
now costs a company $42,168 in capital
investment. (Armco's own cost is
$55,60.) At $42,168 per job, regulation'
last year ate up the money which
