CANDIDA TES MEET IN TV BOUT:
Griffin, Levin attack inflation
By BRIAN BLANCHARD
Following three minutes of debate over which
candidate was more interested in future debate, in-
cumbent Senator Robert Griffin and Democratic
challenger Carl Levin spent close to an hour last
night repeating for a television audience what
they've been saying ever since the primaries.
In other words, inflation, tax-cutting, and Griffin's
commitment to a third term headed the list of issues,
:which also included varying views of Medicaid, den-
fense, abortion funding, nuclear energy, Jimmy Car-
ter, and Gerald Ford.
WITH GRIFFIN'S own polls showing the incum-
bent down four percentage points-up four from a
month ago in a different sampling by the same ser-
vice-both candidates are trying to turn debates to
their own advantage in the tight race.
With about a week left in the contest, Levin asked
Griffin last night to go on TV with him before out-
state, impartial audiences and Griffin said he
favored appearances in front of local interest groups.
In the first of two scheduled televised debates of
the campaign, carried on channel 7 (WXYZ-TV),
Griffin and Levin quarreled over methods for
reducing inflation. Levin supported President Car-
ter's new wage and price guidelines, while his
Republican candidate charged that the plan doesn't
address the deficit federal spending he feels is the
major cause of inflation.
CARTER, ACCORDING to Griffin, should call
Congress back into session after the election and con-
sider a constitutional amendment to balance the
federal budget within five years, a feat Griffin claims
Gerald Ford was much better suited for.
"One thing that President Carter neglected to men-
tion is that when he took over the White House in
January of 1977, the inflation rate under the Ford
administration had been brought down from twelve
per cent to 4.8 per cent," Griffin said.
Levin, a former Detroit City Council president,
responded that the deficit during Ford's term in of-
fice "was the highest we've ever had in this coun-
try." He acknowledged that deficit spending is a
cause of inflation. But, Levin added, "I don't think
that Senator Griffin can point to a time when he had
power in Washington as a time when there was no
Griffin followed Levin's comment by charging
Democratic-controlled Congress with much of the
deficit spending under Ford. He added, in reference
to Levin: "I don't think we need any more spenders
and liberals in the Congress."
Answering questions from journalists from the
Associated Press, United Press International and
WXYZ news, the candidates agreed that the recently
passed tax-cut bill is, in Levin's words, "barely bet-
ter than nothing" in the way of aid for income tax-
Just as Griffin had suggested Carter call Congress
back to make some more "dramatic" action on in-
flation, Levin suggested the president take the same
action to "patch-up" the tax-cut bill.
"It's an unfair tax bill, per se," said Levin. "It's a
little better thar what we have but it's not nearly
good enough and Congress ought to come back into
session and repair it."
Griffin took the opportunity to bring attention to
the tax-indexing bill he has made one of the main
selling points of his campaign. The bill, with bipar-
tisan support in the Senate, would automatically ad-
just tax brackets to account for cost of living in-
In the area of nuclear energy, they contined a run-
ning argument about the safety of nuclear waste
disposal. For the first time yesterday, however, Grif-
fin said the state should be considered as a disposal
site for the waste.
Levin suggested that, since there is no safe way to
get rid of the waste, there should be a moritorium on
the construction of new plants.

HONOLULU-Ten survivors of the
crash of a U.S. Navy surveillance plane
were headed towards the Soviet Union
yesterday aboard a Russian trawler.
The survivors and five others .crashed
in icy North Pacific waters in a P-3
Orion less than 300 miles from Siberia.
Bodies of three were recovered by the
trawler MVS Senyavina and two others
were still missing.
The P-3 was a four-engine turboprop
loaded with equipment to track Soviet
ships and eavesdrop on Soviet military
communications. The plane was dit-
ched Thursday because of electrical
and hydraulic failure 230 miles south-
west of Attu Island at the end of the

businesses and encourage them to take

A company which decides to hire a
foreign intern pays AIESEC $400 for
handling the computerized selection of
the foreign student and processing the
necessary governmental paperwork
allowing the student into the country.
THE BUSINESS also pays the intern
