SECRETARY OF LABOR James Hodgson yesterday proposed
a one year delay in raising the minimum wage to $2.00, to ease
inflation and avoid higher unemployment.
A bill presently before the House Labor subcommittee would
raise the minimum to $1.80 next January and to $2.00 on January 1,
1973. Hodgson endorsed the increase to $1.80 but asked that the jump
to $2.00 be delayed until January, 1974.
Criticism of Hodgson's position came from Rep. John Dent (D-
Penn.), chairman of the subcommittee, who said it would provide
workers with a lower income than they would be able to get under
the administration's welfare reform plan.
THE NIXON ADMINISTRATION yesterday succeeded in de-
laying, for one week, a showdown on a proposal to halve U.S.
troop strength in Europe.
The proposal comes as an amendment by Democratic leader Mike
Mansfield of Montana to the draft extension bill.
Leading sources say the amendment, if added to the bill, would
force the president to veto it. Draft opponent Mike Gravel (D-Alaska),
who has promised to filibuster the bill, says he welcomes the amend-
ment as a way of forcing the president to end the draft.
THE RISE IN NATIONAL INCOME slackened in April, the gov-
ernment announced yesterday, tending to indicate the economy has
yet to respond as the Nixon administration had hoped.
Further bad news in the April figures revealed that wholesale
prices as well as unemployment rose during the month.
THE HOUSE WAYS AND MEANS committee yesterday com-
pleted its draft of President Nixon's welfare reform bill.
The proposed legislation has as its major feature a federal floor
of $2,400 income for a family of four. The committee will vote on the
