SAN FRANCISCO (UP) - Labor leaders are mapping

WASHINGTON (/P) - The House yesterday killed an
8.66 per cent pay raise for members of Congress, federal
employes, and others, thus upholding the five per cent in-
crease recommended by President Ford.
The raise, which went into effect immediately, goes
to senators and representatives, federal judges, the vice
president, Cabinet members, top government officials, fed-
eral white collar workers and military personnel.
The cost of the five per cent raise is estimated at $2.3
billion, compared with the $3.9 billion cost of the larger
increase. Ford had said the higher raise was inflationary.
