the past was thought sufficient,"
Nixon told Congress his eco-
nomic goals were: to hold down
taxes, continue controlling infla-
tion, promote economic growth,
increase productivity, encourage
foreign trade, keep farm income
high, help small business, and pro-
mote better labor-management re-
He said he would be sending
coming weeks on specific areas of
policy, including economic affairs,
natural and human resources, com-
munity development and foreign
and defense policy.
In addition to his goals for the
U.S. economy, Nixon outlined var-
ious other program objectives:
-In natural resources, "to pre-
serve and enhance the environ-
ment, to advance science and tech-
nology, and to assure balanced use
of our irreplacable natural re-
-In human resources, "to ad-l
vance the nation's health and edu-
cation, to improve conditions of
people in need, to carry forward
our increasingly successful attackst
on crime, drug abuse and injustice,,
and to deal with such important,

with 12.8 per cent of total upper-
classmen. The percentage has,
since dropped off to 10.65, but it is
still the most popular major out-
side of BGS.
Morris sees BGS as being re-,
sponsible for the decline in psy-

"I have never found any
attracted by the freer nature of
the (psychology) program," he
said. After the introduction of
BGS, many students changed over.
. Prof. J. E. Keith, psychology
department chairman, indicated
that the popularity of psychology
has increased nationally, and that
with BGS it would probably have
continued to increasehere.
"Psychology is something stu-
dents consider relevant. They feel
that the problems in this country
are ones which psychological in-
sight could help," he said.
However, he added that the num-
ber of professional jobs in the field
have not been increasing as rap-
idly as the increase in the number
The popularity of the natural
sciences has also been affected.
There has been a rapid growth in
the biological sciences, especially
zoology. Zoology has grown by
almost one and a half per cent in
the last year alone.
According to Morris, the growth
of the biological sciences is tied
up with the new student interest
in the "helping" professions, espe-
cially in medical schools. He also
mentioned increased interest in
ecology and the environment as
another element adding to the de-
At the same time, the physical
sciences on the whole have de-
clined. Prof. Thomas Dunn, act-
ing chemistry department chair-
man, expiained that physical sci-
ences were extremely popular in
the fifties. "Physical sciences
have been overemphasizedin the
last ten years. Firms have stopped
recruiting, but jobs are opening
again. The decline should stop."
"Some biological sciences are
more immediately practical than
the physical sciences," Morris com-
mented. The physical sciences re-
quire more work after graduation,
Predicting future trends within
LSA is difficult. Morris sees a pos-
sible increase in Humanities, as
student dissatisfaction with the
social sciences begins to grow. The
shift away from certain of the
humanities ,such as English, will'
reverse itself and begin to stabi-
lize, he says.
In addition he believes that BGS
will also level off in the near fu-

Responding to Nixon's State of
the Union, top congressional Demo
crats lauded his promise of co-
operation yesterday, but made it 1
clear they may have some legis-
lative ideas of their own.
House Speaker Carl Albert (D-
Okla.) said he does "not subscribe
to the philosophy that 'the White..
House knows best'."
"The administration priorities
are not always the priorities of the v
Democratic Congress," Albert add-,
ed. "Congress will consider the
President's recommendations in
light of our own constitutional re-
sponsibilities as a co-equal branch
of government and our responsibili-
ties to the American people.,
