Galbraith calls for go

Tastey prank
Mosher-Jordan residents got an eyeful of April Fool's pranks
Sunday when they arrived in the cafeteria for Sunday noon dinner. The
cooks were heartily dishing out scrumptious-looking green mashed
potatoes, and the milk machines were dispensing pink-colored milk.
To top off the prank, the entie dining hall was decked with black and
orange halloween decorations while Christmas songs played in the
background. In the words of one Mo-Jo resident, "It was realy'
disgusting!" April fools!
Sex appeal '
A job advertisement for a clerical position posted in the LSA
Building yesterday meant to tell prospective job-applicants that
secretarial experience was needed. The abbreviation used for
"secretarial" is sec,, but due either to a typo or an attempt at
subliminal seduction, the ad read "Sex Experience Necessary." There
is no words yet on how many qualified job-seekers' made inquiries.
And you thought sex in advertising wasn't.really all that blatant!
Hash Bash notes (Part I)
Some celebrants on the diag for Sunday's hash bash ritual
decided to use the smoke-in as a forum to make a political statement
on nuclear power, in the wake of last week's accident at the Three Mile
Island power plant. One enterprising entrepeneur was selling yellow
DEVO-like "nuclear fallout suits" for the low, low price of $7.00 each.
Another anti-nuker was seen carrying a sign that read "Countdown to
Meltdown," predicting the worst kind of nuclear disaster. With this in-
jection of black humor, the bash wasn't all fun and games.
Hash Bash notes (Part II)
Captain Kenneth Klinge of the Ann Arbor police department
has been to a lot of hash bashes, and he usually takes heat from both
sides. Sunday, a bearded young man in jeans was complaining to the
Captain that his uniformed contingent of A2 cops was only malting the
crowd more hostile. The young man was just telling Klinge that his job
wasn't to enforce minor enfractions of the law, when a little old lady
walked up and tapped the Captain on the shoulder. "Why don't you en-
force the law!" the old lady demanded to know, pointing to the blatant
violtions around her. Klinge, ever-cool, referred the old lady to the
young man. "Maybe you'd better talk to him," he said, easing out of
yet another tight situation.
New Business staff
In the wee hours of the morning, an alert Daily photographer
wandering past our offices at 420 Maynard heard activity inside the
building. Quietly sneaking inside, through the back window with
camera in hand, the photographer caught in this rare photograph the
never-before-seen inhabitants of the Student Publications Building.
Known only as the Daily businiess staff, the six pictured above are the
new behind-the-scenes operators of the Daily, the real movers and
shakers responsible for buying and laying out the advertisements
which are probably more read than this column. As best we could
identify them, they are (left to right) Beth Warren, display' ad
manager; Stan Berkman, national ad manager; "Pete" Petersen, ad
coordinator; Arlene Saryan, sales manager; Mark Schwartz,

With Wire Service Reports
After outlining his interpretation of
what he called the popular notion of
economic conservatism in this country,
noted - economist John Kenneth
Galbraith Sunday night called for
government-enforced wage and price
controls to stem inflation.
Galbraith, who spoke to a large
audience in Hill Auditorium, was the
last speaker of the year in the Univer-
sity Activities Center Viewpoint Lec-
ture Series.
GALBRAITH ALSO spoke yesterday
in Detroit, where he reiterated his call
for wage and price controls, and
stressed that gasoline rationing is the
only feasible alternative to constantly

rising pump prices.v
The Harvard professor emeritus of
economics told reporters in Detroit that
President Carter's voluntary guidelines
are an "evasion of the issue" and will
not effectively control inflation.
Galbraith later addressed the Detroit
chapter of the Americans for
Democratic Action.
IN ANN ARBOR Sunday_ night,
Galbraith said some vocal citizens are
now attacking the basic elements of an
economic consensus concerning gover-
nment action reached among many
nations after World War II.
The main features of the consensus
were derived from the work of British
econoimist John Maynard Keynes,
Galbraith said. Those elements include
agreement that government should:
* Undertake an effective
macroeconomic management program
to control unemployment and inflation.
* Provide necessary services that are
not available from the private sector of
the economy at a reasonable cost.
" Derive a program to secure citizens
from certain unavoidable situations.
WHILE ALLOWING that many of the
criticisms of the economic consensus
are justified, Galbraith said the attack
might not be as large as it may seem.
"The voice of relative economic advan-
tage is' much louder than the voice of
economic disadvantage," the professor
said, "and (it) is often mistaken for the
voice of the masses."
Galbraith maintained that the revolt
against government spending "is a

Daily Official Bulletin

Daily Photo by PAM MARKS

Anyone walking to one of the Angell Hall auditoriums yesterday
probaly noticed they were wading through almost ankle deep water.
Well, rest assured, the University is not installing a swimming pool in
the fishbowl. Nor was there a save the seals rally in sensurround.
Rather, according to University information, there was a plugged
floor drain somewhere in Angell Hall. At last report, U' engineers
were seen hurrying across State street with buckets while professors
were struggling to keep their lectures afloat.
Take Ten
After years of debate, the Literary College faculty established
the Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree on April 3, 1969. The
new degree was adopted as an alternative for students wanting to
make it through the University without the restrictions of language or
distribution requirements. Students in the BGS program do not have a
departmental concentration either. Some professors objected to the
new degree, fearing tht its adoption would lead to the lessening of con-
centration programs.

brath was incorrectly identified as a vice-presidential candidate. The

satisfying way to use her liberal arts background.
will talk about what she does and how she got star-
ted. All interested people are welcome.
A State Police trooper had expected to be a social
worker. An apprentice with the Plumbers and
Pipefitters Local became interested when she
worked as a stocking clerk, and an administrative
assistant converted accumulated familiarity with
terminology and procedures into a position as a
technical writer. A few drawing courses in an ar-
