No successor was named. For the time being, John M.Hennessey, CS First Boston's chief executive, will assume Mr. Cox's responsibilities, the firm said.

GM car prices to rise 1.8% in '94

General Motors Corp. said yesterday its 1994 models will cost an average of 1.8 percent more than this year's, partly because it will offer more models with set prices.

The leading automaker's modest price increase, about the half the rate of inflation, also reflected Detroit's determination to exploit the rising value of the yen vs. the dollar. That is likely to further raise the prices of Japanese imports and could encourage more consumers to buy American.

TWA selects Howard as chairman

The rest of the management team will include Robin Wilson and Glenn Zander, the airline's co-chief executives since last fall, who will be chairmen. The three men will hold the three management seats on the board.
