Prof. Wallich, claiming that the
United States would not be able to
reach reform of the international
monetary system until it ended
its payments deficit, said that we
should not push reform, for "the
harder we press, the more strong-
ly our creditors will suspect that
we are just asking for something
to hail us out of our current pay-
ments difficulties. That they will
not give us."
The solution, Wallich said, lies
in keeping prices and wages in
line, maintaining a level of short-
term interest rates commensurate
with those abroad, and controlling
the foreign activities of American
banks and corporations, But, he
pointed out, "while the direct for-
eign investment of American cor-
porations is a heavy balance of
payments drain in the short run,
in the long run it will make a
much larger contribution" to the
amount of incoming dollars.

SGC members spoke out yesterday at a Regents banquet
against a lack of communications between students and Regents.
Council members said that a dialogue should be carried on for
the purpose of better expressing to the Regents the particular
interests of the student body.
Several Regents responded by citing the Office of Student
Affairs as the proper channel for communication, but also agreed

Michigan Staste University's Faculty Committee on Student
Affairs has not yet reached a decision on former grac student
Paul Schiff's plea for readmission.
The committee met for five hours Wednesday, and then again
yesterday without contracting a final resolution.
The Michigan State University News endorsed Senator Barry
Goldwater's proposal to bomb industrial areas in Hanoi in an
In the editorial headlined "Barry Right On Bombing Hanoi's
Industrial Area," the News said, "Washington shouldn't hold off
an inevitable military act because of the reasons it has given.
Bombing civilians should be avoided at all costs, and those in
the area should be notified that bombing will take place."
"As long as the U.S. delays bombing North Viet Nam's in-
dustrial center, the war will endure and more human lives will be
lost," said the editorial.
