Read all about it
We're flattered to know that someone on campus loves to read the
Daily-160 copies of the same issue, no less. The bundle of papers
destined for subscribers at East Quad never reached the dorm office
yesterday morning. The papers, which are usually delivered around 4
a.m., are ordinarily picked up by the security guard on duty and put in
the office. The guard reported that he checked outside for the papers
at 4 o'clock, 6:15, and at 7 before leaving his shift, yet never found the
bundle. The delivery was made, according to the Daily's circulation
department, but someoneapparently made off with the papers before
the guard could get them.
There oughta be a law
While the rest of us are looking forward to a holiday homecoming or
are busy planning jaunts to warmer climates, at least one local
resident seems content to settle for a different sort of trip, one of the
ego variety. James Buttrey, who bills himself as a 1978 Harvard BA, is
offering personalized LSAT training for ambitious pre-law types. for a
mere $10 an hour, Buttrey will gladly tell you everything you need to
know to ace these grueling boards. And who would know better?
Buttrey's advertisements, which have opped up on campus bulletin
boards, proudly feature a photocopy of his LSAT scores, which happen
to be a perfect 800. So why isn't he at Harvard Law School fretting over
his contracts and tortes? Buttrey apparently decided to take a year off
to pick up some cash. Guess he needs the money for his ego trip.

EXPOR TS DECLINE:

Trade deficit worst in 3 months

WASHINGTON (AP) - A sharp
decline in exports of food, chemicals
and gold pushed the nation's trade
deficit to $2.1 billion in October, the
worst in three months, the government"
said yesterday.
Both the U.S. stock market and world
currency markets reacted negatively to
the news. The Dow Jones Industrial
Average was down by 9.70 points to
794.44 in the first few hours of slow
trading, while the dollar eased against
most other major currencies.
MEANWHILE, the index of economic
indicators increased by a moderate 0.5
per cent in October, pointing to con-
tinuing economic growth even though it
was below the 0.9 per cent advance in
September. '
The index is designed to indicate
future economic trends. A big increase
in contracts and orders for plants and
equipment was the major contributor to
the October gain.
The U.S. trade deficit now totals $24.8
billion for the first 10 months of 1978.
Along with inflation, it has been a
major cause of the steep decline in the
dollar during the past two years.
OFFICIALS estimate there already
are about $500 billion in U.S. dollars
held abroad, most of them from past
trade deficits. As the supply of dollars
outpaces foreign demand, which it has,
the value declines.
Chairman G. William Miller of the

Federal Reserve Board said yesterday
the decline in the dollar has added about
one per cent to the nation's inflation
rate in 1978, and will raise it even more
in 1979.
The dollar decline alone, he said, is
costing Americans between $10 billion
and $15 billion a year in lost purchasing
power.
THE OCTOBER trade deficit
followed two months of shrinking
deficits and was the worst since a
deficit of just under $3 billion in July.
The deficit for September was $1.7
billion.
U.S. officials sought to put the best
possibleface on the figures. Treasury
Secretary W. Michael Blumenthal said
they were "consistent with, if not
below, our expectations .. .'
Exports in October declined $415
million or 3.1 per cent to a total of $13
billion, down from $13.4 billion in Sep-
tember, while imports were virtually

unchanged at $15.1 billion.
THE SIZE OF the decline in exports
was the largest in 10 months. But
Blumenthal said much of this was due
to a $224 million decline in gold exports
that reflected what he described as
erratic overseas purchases of U.S. gold,
which were up sharply the previous
month.
"Importantly, our balance of trade in
the area of manufactured goods and in-
dustrial materials is continuing to show
substantial improvement," he said.

BLOOD OF THE CONDOR:
indicts a U.S. imposed population control program in
Bolivia affecting the Quechua (one of the largest indi-
genous populations in Latin America). At first banned
by American embassy protests of its Peace Corps de-
nouncement--a ban later lifted by pressure of stu-
dents, priests, and intellectuals-allowing this film to
be widely shown in Latin America. An opportunity to
see the U.S. as others see us.

It looks like inflation fighter Alfred Kahn has gone bananas. "The
danger of a serious banana is increased if we do not bring the inflation
rate sown," Kahn told reporters the other day. Banana? That's what
the man said. "We went through the deepest banana in 35 years,"
added Kahn.about the recession of 1974-75. There. He said it again. But
why would the usually sensible chairman of the President's Council on
Wage and Price Stability make a slip like that? Actually, Kahn had
deliberately substituted the word "banana" for depression" and
