Prices, cost of living
continue rise in June
WASHINGTON I') The gov-
(rnment reported yesterday that
inflation in mid-1970 still is
chipping away 6 per cent an-
nualv from the value of the
dollar, but the Nixon Adminis-
tration said the rise in living
costs is slowing.
The Labor Department's June
report on living costs showed
prices up four-tenths of one per
cent for the month, a slight eas-
ing from previous months, but
still almost as high as 1969's 20-
year peak of 6.1 per cent.
But the report, wrapping up
price and wage developments for
the first half of the year, said
45 million rank-and-file work-
ers still were lagging in pur-
chasing power for the 15th
straight month because prices
outstripped wage hikes.
The average paycheck of
$120.05 per week in June was
up $1.65 from May and $4.83
above a year earlier, but was
worth $2 less weekly in pur-
chasing power because of infla-
President Nixon and his chief
economic advisers cited the
slightly slower rise in prices as
evidence that the prolonged in-
flationary pressure is easing in
response to Nixon's monetary
and fiscal restrictioins.
While Nixon officials argued
yesterday the nation's worst in-
flation in 20 years is ending,
Democrats set the stage for a
full House fight over the econ-
omy by moving to give the Pres-
ident something he says he
doesn't want and won't use-au-
thority to freeze wages and
The House Banking Commit-
tee, acting on party lines, voted
to give stand by power to the
President to put a temporary
lid on prices and wages at the
levels in effect two months ago.
Secretary of Labor James
Hodgson pointed to increased
productivity by workers, said he
foresees no major jumps in un-
employment, and argued the
cooling of inflation makes the
nation's current jobless rate of
nearly five per cent worth the
But Democrats, mounting a
growing attack on the Nixon
administration's economic poli-
cies, set up a full-scale debate
in Congress by tacking on the
possible wage-and-price controls
to a pending bill.
The Banking Committee's
move would authorize-but not
require--President Nixon to put
a temporary freeze in effect at
levels of last May 25.
The freeze authority would
expire next Feb. 28.

British weapon's sale
ets harsh reaction
LONDON 0P - Angry opposition mounted among Asian and
African members of the Commonwealth yesterday to the British
government's tentative plans to sell arms to the white supremacist
government of South Africa.
The British Embassy in Zambia came under attack.
India declared that resumption of arms sales by the new Con-
servative government would raise tensions in the Indian Ocean area.
"We are aware that both Asian and African members of the
Commonwealth have got a fairly clear notion that this is a step
which will have consequences," said a Foreign Ministry spokesman
in New Delhi.

entering the courtroom, presumably in an attempt to prevent the
entry of firearms, tape recorders and cameras.
The packed public gallery was occupied largely by a sizeable con-
tingent of members of the press, but a few of those women who revel
in the agony of a major trial were also present. One woman, who in
earlier times would have been found sitting knitting by the guillotine
in postrevolutionary France, was pax'ticularly obnoxious as she wal-
lowed in the spectacle. She became so annoying that the only empty
space in the court became centered around her as people edged to-
wards each other, preferring discomfort to her babbling.
Collins himself smiled at his mother as he entered the court-
room. He sat, flanked by a plainclothes deputy, stiff and seemingly
emotionless, although he took a great interest in the proceedings.
He occasionally consulted with his lawyers, but in the main it was as
if he were not even on trial.
The slight air of unreality in the courtroom yesterday may be
due to the fact that both sides are relieved. that the tiring process
of jury selection is over, and that the trial is to be so long that to rush
would be futile. There is little doubt, however, that within a few days
the contest will have settled down into a trial, in both senses of the

Army co urts
WASHINGTON (P)-Lt. Wil-
liam Calley Jr. has become the
fourth soldier charged in the
alleged My Lai massacre to
challenge the Army's court-
martial as unconstitutional.
Lawyers for Calley, w h o is
charged with the premeditated
murder of 102 Vietnamese civil-
ians, filed suit in U.S. District
Court here Monday, asking that
the charges be dismissed.
The petition seeks to block
his scheduled 'Aug. 24 military
trial. If that is denied, Calley,
27, of Miami, Fla., wants a civ-
ilian trial by jury.
Courts-martial have been or-
dered for five of the 12 m e n
charged in the 1968 incident in
the South Vietnamese village.
Calley's petition, as did three
which preceded it, contends mil-
itary court procedures violate
the Constitution's due-process
The suit contends Calley is
being held illegally in the Army,
seeks his discharge and men-

niques and leading questions.

witnesses of others' testimony,

can news media," has so mold-
ed testimony that potential wit-
nesses now a r e brain-washed
