Panelists offer diverse views
on President's economic plans
By JOHN CLEMENTS
Economics Professors Saul Hy-
mans and Warren Smith and repre-'
sentatives of three campus social-
ist organizations were panel mem-
bers last night in a wide-ranging
debate on President Nixon's New
Economic Policy (NEP).
The debate was held in the
Union Ballroom and was sponsored
by the National Caucus of Labor
Committees. About 90 people at-
The panelists' views of the ef-
fectiveness and motivation of the
President's NEP were widely di-
vergent, but all the panelists
agreed that international and do-
mestic economic policies are badly
in need of basic reforms.
One basic point of contention
was the relation of rates of un-

employment and inflation to eco-
nomic health and the capitalist
system as a whole. In his opening
statement, Hymans, with the as-
sent of Smith, stated the opinion
that, ". . . a four per cent rate of
inflation is n'ot too high a price
to pay for a three and one-half per
cent unemployment rate."
His statement touched off a
series of analyses by the other
panelists of the causes of current
national and international eco-
nomic ills. Mitch Stengal, of the
Union for Radical Political Eco-
nomics, laid the blame for current
troubles on massive expenditures
for the Vietnam conflict, and the
flow of dollars to other nations.
He further contended that Ame-
rican economic policies are short-
sighted in nature, requiring con-
stant, and fruitless revision.
Smith, crediting the Vietnam
conflict with lowering unemploy-
ment, contrasted with Stengal's
analysis, was equally critical of
the President's program, referring
to Phase 2 as "a horror story."
He also expressed concern that
the rates of unemployment and
inflation would reaccelerate when
the Phase 2 controls are lifted.
In his analysis of the monetary
crisis, Bill Bachman, representing
the Washtenaw Organizing Com-
mittee-Up Against the Wall Street
Journal, stated that a crisis was
at hand, even without the impetus
of the Vietnam conflict.
A much stronger statement to
the same effect was made by Peter
Rush, of the National Caucus of
Labor Committees. He viewed the
current controls as a last ditch
attempt by the President to stave
off a second Great Depression,
which he maintained is imminent,
pointing to stagnating rates of pro-
duction and services.

(An important question deserving of a
straight answer. We'll risk one:)
You probably should spend $650 on our
Advent/Kenwood/PE/Shure system. Why
are we so sure?
The system we have for $650 is not just
a good value (although we do think it's
actually the best value now available in
hifi equipment.) Nor is it just a question
of its sounding "good for the money." Our
Advent/ Kenwood/PE/Shure system is unique
among all the systems that can be put to-
gether: it is a stereo radio/phonograph
system that is nothing less than the right,
completely satisfying choice for most peo-
ple with a demanding interest in both music
and sound-at a price far lower than such
a system would have cost iust a few years
An ambitious claim to be sure. But one
which, from experience, we are not afraid
to make. Our $650 system will do the fol-
lowing for you:.
It reproduces the entire frequency range of
all music, without annoying coloration or
distortion, at levels which will comfortably
fill your listening room with sound. (Wag-
nerians and acid-rock freaks not excluded.)
It sounds convincing not only on the best
recordings, but on the great majority of re-
cordings and broadcasts of all kinds.
It has enough controls and features to sat-
isfy your needs, without making you pay for
unnecessary frills. (There's ample flexibility
for adding such niceties as a tape deck or
Its performance and durability are such that
it's highly unlikely you'd want to change any
of the components for a very lona time.

The Adveni Loudspeakers have over and
over again proved true the claim originally
made for them: they provide the kind of
performance associated with speakers then
and now costing for more.
The. Kenwood KR 5150 AM/FM Stereo Re-
ceiver is yet another example of the won-
derful way your inflated dollar now buys
much more real performance in hifi equip-
ment than ever before: 33 watts/channel
RMS, with less than 0.5% distortion, across
the entire audio range. Sensitive FM pe.r-
formance permits the greatest number of
stations to be received in truly listenable
The PE 2038 Automatic Turntable does its
job smoothly and reliably; its heavy platter
turns records at a constant speed,'quietly.
There is a gentle changing mechanism and
a convenient cueing control. The Shure
M93E Cartridge transmits all the sound that
is on the record, and at a record-saving 2-
gram tracking force. Its excellent high fre-
quency capabilities complement the fine
high frequency characteristics of the Advent
Loudspeakers and the Kenwood KR 5150
