U.S. STEEL CORP., the nation's biggest steelmakers, yester-
day boosted by 6% per cent prices on products used to make a
wide variety of consumer items, including automobiles and ap-
There was no immediate adoption of the new price scales by
other major producers as has been customary. However, some said
they were reviewing the company's announcement. U.S. Steel is an
industry price pacesetter. u
SECRETARY OF STATE William Rogers met a hard bar-
gaining line yesterday in Cairo and reports from Israel indicat-
ed an equally tough posture awaited him there.
An Egyptian spokesman said Rogers' talks with Egyptian lead-
ers were pointing "definitely toward peace" in the Middle East, but
added: "We shall not make concessions."
In Jerusalem, Premier Golda Meir declared: "If we have to
say no, we shall say no . . . even to our friends." She referred to
the likelihood that Rogers will press Israel to withdraw from Arab
territory captured in the 1967 Mideast war.
UNDER A MANTLE of secrecy, the Air Force rocketed a spy
satellite into space yesterday to monitor Russian and Red Chi-
nese missile tests and to provide almost instant alert of a long-
range rocket attack.
The 1,800-pound superspy would sound a 30-minute warning
of such an attack. This is double the 15 minutes that present radar
systems give U.S. forces to prepare antimissile defenses and to
launch bombers and missiles in retaliation.
PRESIDENT NIXON asked Congress yesterday to set up an
independent Legal Services Corp.
He said it is designed to make federal legal help for the poor
"immune to political pressures."
The quasi-public agency, similar to the Public Broadcasting
Corp., would take over a service - which Nixon said is "surround-
ed by controversy" - provided by the Office of Economic Oppor-
tunity for the past six years.
Under Nixon's plan, those lawyers given fulltime grants would
not be permitted to engage in outside law practice and they would
be limited in lobbying activities.
GOV. RONALD REAGAN said yesterday that someone broke
the law by leaking word that he didn't have to pay any state in-
come tax for 1970.
The report that Reagan didn't have to pay state income tax
was first broadcast by a college radio station. On Tuesday Reagan
told newsmen he couldn't remember if he had to pay. His office
later disclosed the governor paid no state tax because of offsetting
business losses in the 1970 tax year. The losses were not specified.
LEGISLATION REQUIRING the nation's 80 million motor
vehicles to undergo a yearly inspection to see whether they meet
air pollution standards will be introduced in the Senate today.
The proposal, drafted by Sen. Abraham Ribicoff (D-Conn.),
comes as an amendment to a pending bill to require all cars to have
a yearly safety check.

WORST IN 2 YEARS:
Money crisis hits Europe
SAIGON (M- South Viet-
nam charged yesterday that
North Vietnamese t r o o p s
have switched tactics a n d
are shelling civilian centers
in order to avoid casualties
they might suffer in attacks
against defended military
The government advanced this
theory amid a general lull in
ground fighting but an increase
in B52 bomber raids against the
much battered northeast corner
of South Vietnam and in sen-
sitive sectors of Laos.
The government lodged a pro-
test with the International Con-
trol Commission against "in-
tensified a n d indiscriminate"
shellings by North Vietnamese
forces of civilian centers.
The B52 stratofortress mis-
sions - equal to the two pre-
vious days together - were
flown against North Vietna-
mese positions in the extreme
northern part of South Vietnam
along the Laotian frontier.
Other B52 bombers continued
the sustained pounding of the
Ho Chi Minh trail.
FRANKFURT, Germany (A )
- Massive selling of the dol-
lar forced several government
banks of Europe to stop buying
American currency yesterday
and s e n t money experts into
consultations on ways to check
Europe's g r o w i n g monetary
The Continent's worst money
crisis since 1969 made the dol-
lar the one currency that prac-
tically no one wanted at present
Speculators were betting on a
- - - -
decision that would allow the
mark and other currencies to
move up in ratio to the dollar to
temporarily ease the situation.
That was why .they were swap-
ping dollars for other curren-
cies, principally the mark.
An increase in value of the
mark - an d other European
currencies-would in effect low-
er the c os t of U.S. goods in
Europe and increase the cost of
European goods here. That
would tend to increase* U.S. ex-
ports and reduce imports.
